I quitted WL some weeks ago and was "clean" for about 4 Weeks...i made a big mistake and thought i'll give it a try again.

And you know what, WL started good...i started with 9-2. After the 9th win i lost all (!) following Games so that i am now 9-11. My Opponents weren't better than me, i conceded so many bs Kick-off Goals, that i can't count them. Nearly every Game i was up 2-0 and lost these Games in OT. Servers are trash, Gameplay is trash.

Man, i deleted FIFA, deleted the Companion App because this game makes me feel bad and ruins my weekends. I'm addicted to this **** Game and don't know how i can stop it.

You know, i'm chronically ill and FIFA has helped me through a lot of difficult times in my life but FIFA doesn't help me anymore, it strengthens my disease.

But it's not only the game, that makes me feel bad, it's also the ignorance from EA.

Gaming can be good, if you're struggling in life, because it can help you to forget that you're terminally ill...FIFA doesn't help me anymore. I feel lost for the moment...

    I'm sure you experienced plenty of bs to lose, as we all do but if you go 9-2 and then go on a massive losing streak it's because the level of opponent goes up, you can't lose 9 in a row without some of the opponents being better even if you don't admit it

    The Problem is, no game demands my concentration as FIFA does it. Due to my disease i can't concentrate on "slower" games, because my mind wanders to fast. It's hard to explain...
    I get you bro. I’m awaiting my second back surgery now. So I really want to enjoy fifa, because I can’t do much. For some reason they think if it’s enjoyable people won’t spend money. I think the opposite. I know I would spend if I was enjoying it.

    It's really a shame, that we are all just trying to enjoy the Game and EA is leaving us alone with this mess. They just don't care (and honestly: i think they never did).

    I feel you pal.. But your basically playing someone who hasn't lost in 7 games or has a 7 win ratio.. So that oppontant is half decent.. We're all addicted to the game... Just relax in next game and a win will come.. Gl 👍

    Have you tried other competetive multiplayer games like Call of Duty, Apex Legends or maybe even PC games like League of Legends? Those usually all require a pretty high amount of focus and concentration throughout the entire playsession

    I can also really recommend you the game Furi. Its one of the most fun and challenging games i have played for a very long time and only ~10 bucks. Its very fast paced and requires a ton of focus to beat it. In fact i even had to stop playing after 1 hour max because i kind of have the opposite problem to you, i get strong migraines whenever i focus too hard for a long period of time :D

    I honestly don't have a problem with the Fact that there are much better Players than me out there, but what really really annoys me is, that i dominate most of the Games for about 60 Minutes and all of a sudden, my players aren't able to run, pass, shoot. It destroys me, that i loose to the AI, not to the Player.

    Yeah, i play Shooters like COD (don't play BF or Apex, because I'm not giving money to EA anymore - last EA Game before FIFA19 was Battlefront 2) but it's just not thrilling me like FIFA does. Furi looks good though, i guess I'll give it a try :smile:!

    Interesting. I have a similar experience. Fifa requires so much concentration that it’s one of the few things I can do that will relieve my back pain. It doesn’t relieve it. But it essentially requires so much concentration I don’t think about the pain. Whereas a slower paced game (football manager for example) doesn’t provide that.

    I hope you find the strength to quit again. This game is by far the worst game anyone will ever play. I used to play it so much. Haven’t played in over a month then tried one match. Didn’t even finish. Just felt uneasy and was like why bother. I broke the hump of wanting to play it. I check the forums just to see how terrible the game is and shows how I made the right decision

    If you can find another game like cod to work at it helps keep your mind off things

    I’ve gone from a 1.70 kill death now at a 1.94. So hard to get that 2.00 but I’m slowly making it

    Same here. I play FIFA because I love football, and been playing this game more than 21 years watching it going downhill every single year. And every year we think, “okay this time EA changed it to a football sim” but no they don’t give a biiip about football. As long as the pack business is running.

    How can you patch a game like 7-8 times every year and don’t fix a crucial exploit like the kick off glitch?

    Like is it legal to actually run a company like EA does? We never get the product we paid for. Never.

    Look like they changed the finesse shot to be, something you don’t wanna use at all, to let the “first time 180 degree blind shot” become the most effective scoring option. I mean WTF is wrong if you can’t even create simple content, that actually is football related.

    We are playing a football game at a first person shooter engine.
    Physics can’t handle this frantic passing and shooting. Everything is random all over the place at 300 mph.

    I feel exactly the same, first game played this morning. Come up against a god squad, 2 undefendable corner goals, 2 undefendable kick off goals including a 90th minute equalizer. Then i lose on pens, guy was probably the poorest player ive played all weekend. I need this vile toxic trash out of my life, i feel ill playing it.
