We can all agree the three big problems of EA are:

- Bad new promos designed to milk money
- Gameplay is bad
- Servers are trash

But there is something more to it, something we don't see. If EA would want to milk players for money in a smart way, they should first fix the gameplay, fix the servers and when those are down then start trying to get more money from customers. (It's common sense, more happy customers = more profit)

But... they are not doing this? We all had those times when we did something bad or something happened and we became desperate in fixing it with adrenaline rushing through our veins and we can think only of what's going to happen? (Like crashing our first car when we were kids for example) Well this is the exactly what's happening with EA. I feel like all the new promos and all this hype they are trying to create are just a result from what I said above, but I can't guess why is this happening?

We all know the theory that EA is doing this because FP are getting banned, but is it really the true answer?
Also, why are the servers so bad? There are other companies that have more players connected to the same server and have much more going on and still their servers doesn't have that much of delay? Is it really that hard to do something about it? (Yes, the delay is on EA's end // Proven by u/donhuan09 on reddit // here)

For once I'm looking for real answers not just people saying just "EA is ****" and that's it, I really want to know your opinion in more than 3 words...

    You didin’t get your answers since the start of FUT. why do you think you’ll get one now. Also they have gotten away with so much before. Nothing is changing they are not milking anything. I’m sure politicans just want a piece of the multi billion pie that is UT. FP sales won’t stop don’t worry.

    Haha Haha do you even understand what ping or packet loss is ?

    If you have a good connection, with good speeds and a good service provider with standard firewall settings, and live on a good geographical location there is no reason why the updates from the client to game server should suffer.

    Jitter ? Why would audio distortion effect delay ?

    I can understand why packet delivery could effect delay, but doubt that's the issue nearly every player bar you apparently, experiences.

    I dont know why do you defending ea but im gonna explain you something. If 99% people have no issue in all other online games ,only in fifa, it has 2 options.

    1. Our internet is trash,but all other companies are amazing and are able to adjust their servers for everybodys internet

    2. Ea has bad servers and everything around connectivity

    Both of them just shows how bad ea is

    Nahh it’s called mismanagement
  • They gonna invest into Apex Legends since it attracted 25 million players in on week and still rapidly rising. Its safe money since it is F2P (Fortnite-model) and they wont have any worries

    For FIFA 20 they need a bigger budget as usually since they have to rethink/invest into a new pack/FP-model to avoid problems with the law.

    My thoughts why they are cash grabbing so hard, could be totally BS though😅

    The servers for Fifa seem to be shared or down priortised for other games. Remember BF5 beta? Yeah? The FIFA servers went offline that day. How about the Anthem demo? Guess what happened. Yup, servers went down.
    This can only mean they purposely move resources around to make their limited network work.

    Imagine what it really makes us look like as consumers, seeing how EA treats its costumers for their biggest cashcow. We the Fifa Players are respondsible for so much income, but we’re treated like garbage and downpriortised for other projects.

    EA aren’t stupid, they know what’s coming. They’ve been in the know for a while to be fair. We can blame them for many things, but they are not the imbecils they act like.

    I guess you can get out of trouble more often, if you just act like you’re **** and cant help it.

    That’s the annoying thing

    They are happy to milk everyone and keep bringing out promos, but I’ve had lag/delay every weekend and nothing is ever fixed still so many bugs and glitches, if they made these promos and fixed the game I wouldn’t mind

    But they don’t fix anything, even Skyrim which has waaay more problems that can go wrong is less buggy than fifa and that’s over 5 years old !!

    Um it does pretty much prove it.

    Ive been working in WANs for over 15 years and the Reddit post is spot on, and yes it is in EAs power to fix it, particularly as the poster comments that BF5 servers hosted on AWS perform far better than Fifas ones.

    Just because you dont understand it (or want to) it doesn't mean it isn't the case. That post has more evidence and understanding of the issue than your comment which is backed up with absolutely zero information as to why the reddit post doesn't prove it.

    I can understand why packet delivery could effect delay, but doubt that's the issue nearly every player bar you apparently, experiences.

    I cant claim to know what audio jitter is but in networking terms jitter results from network congestion, and is defined as the variance in time delay between packets. Therefore high jitter will manifest in a very uneven online gaming experience. Ie: The game will not play smoothly.

    Now Jitter can caused at any point between the EA servers and our Consoles/PCs - but the Reddit post uses PingPlotter to spot the hop where the jitter is most prevalent, and it basically proves that the issue is at EAs end- more specifically the hop just before EAs servers.

    So the issue isnt the Fifa servers themselves, but the hop before them- which is within the same Datacenter, so it is quite definitely in EAs power to diagnose this bottleneck and fix it.

    My tinfoil hat tells me that the delay and other issues are in there on purpose as a way of guiding frustrated addicted players into spending more FP.... when I take it off though I just think they don't really give a crap as they are making so much money the system is obviously fine... the profits can't be wrong can they?

    The reddit comment was trying to shwo that it doesn't have to be on "your end" or EA's servers it has to do with the path you take from your end to EA's servers. If you're not close to EA or your ISP dosen't provide the most optimal path you'll have delay. Or even if your provider normally provides a decent path if something happens that the path changes this cause also cause delay.

    It's harder for folks in Europe than the USA because there are more ISP or exchanges and more potential for least optimal routing between end hosts and EA's servers. This last bit is just an educated guess.

    But generally speaking it's not your end (unless you're using wireless, which really what are you doing?) and it's not always EA's servers. The path makes a big difference. Why is it a bigger difference for FIFA than say COD? I have some ideas but can't really back that up.

    Lol 99% of people have no issue in any other games? Can’t be serious. The poor connection just doesnt have as big of an impact on the end result.

    Last year on COD when I was host in online games I’d be literally untouchable. People would die from one burst while people that saw me 1st couldn’t kill me before I turned round and finished them. Also, how many times have you watched a kill cam and they’ve killed you after you’ve gone round a corner.

    Only difference between COD and FIFA is that this is 1v1 so you feel the negatives more.

    Saying that I understand people’s fustrations from continents outside Europe where servers are few and far between.

    We can all agree the three big problems of EA are:

    - Bad new promos designed to milk money
    - Gameplay is bad
    - Servers are trash

    But there is something more to it, something we don't see. If EA would want to milk players for money in a smart way, they should first fix the gameplay, fix the servers and when those are down then start trying to get more money from customers. (It's common sense, more happy customers = more profit)

    But... they are not doing this? We all had those times when we did something bad or something happened and we became desperate in fixing it with adrenaline rushing through our veins and we can think only of what's going to happen? (Like crashing our first car when we were kids for example) Well this is the exactly what's happening with EA. I feel like all the new promos and all this hype they are trying to create are just a result from what I said above, but I can't guess why is this happening?

    We all know the theory that EA is doing this because FP are getting banned, but is it really the true answer?
    Also, why are the servers so bad? There are other companies that have more players connected to the same server and have much more going on and still their servers doesn't have that much of delay? Is it really that hard to do something about it? (Yes, the delay is on EA's end // Proven by u/donhuan09 on reddit // here)

    For once I'm looking for real answers not just people saying just "EA is ****" and that's it, I really want to know your opinion in more than 3 words...

    That reddit thing doesn't prove it's on EA's end ffs

    Can people stop commenting on IT stuff they have ZERO knowledge on

    "oh some guy on reddit posted a picture it must explain it"

    AHHHH THIS HURTS MY HEAD AS MUCH AS EA'S STUPID PROFIT LOSING DECISIONS ATM

    Doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that if you have very good internet (500+ mbs/250+ upload) and live near the servers and you still get delay, that it's not on your end 😂


    AHHHHHHHHH

    THAT'S NOT HOW IT WORKS

    Ping

    Jitter

    Packet loss

    Routing (something EA doesn't actually control, believe it or not)

    You could have 10 billionty millionty gazillionty up and down and those 4 things can and are still issues

    I have literally, no exxageration, 3.4 down and .8 up, and I never get delay, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, IN OVER 8 YEARS OF FIFA AT THIS LOCATION

    Please stop taking things for face value ffs

    You've basically also proven what others have said the worse internet better gameplay, lag compensation.

    So someone with good bandwidth and ping has.more delay than someone with bad bandwidth and average ping.

    Go figure.

    I have 75mbps down 15 up. Ping 21 directly to fut servers in the eu yet get attricious gameplay.

    So yes the reddit post is spot on.

    The hop during games before EA servers is causing the issues.
