Over the last few weeks I just can't seem to win anymore. I have dropped from mid Division 5 in Rivals to 100 skillrating. Yes, 100...

It seems I kee pgetting matched up against players that feel better than me. And when I encounter players I should be beating, everything else feels off. Bad gameplay, the mechanics working against me, my team feeling like bronzes not being able to finish anything,...

I am very close to just deleting this game and taking the (long) summer off.

    100? That’s crazy even for this broken mess of a game.

    Did you put Pass Block Assistance in controller settings to Off?

    It makes it completely impossible to defend, all auto interceptions are gone, player "lock ons" to loose balls or passes close to a player disappear and player switching is totally broken too

    I wish I was... I'm average at the game but lately everything goes against me, every game and I seem to match up to a lot of people that feel way better than me...

    Not to my knowledge but that would be something I need to check when I feel like logging in again. Thanks for the advice.

    Didn't know there was such a thing even?

    I must have that switched off too then because my players sometimes stand around like statues when there’s a loose ball near them😂

    Check your internet connection, this game is based on that.

    Good connection --> win
    Bad connection --> loss

    Do you know what the purpose is of having a choice whether to have it on or off? Sounds like something we shouldn’t have an option to switch off?

    Whoever has played at least ONE real football game in any category knows this game has NOTHING to do with football. A north american company making a football game, how can it even be a good emulation of what's this beautiful game is in real life? They can make games about burgers, baseball, guns, or muscle cars, but not football. I can bet there were developers from this bloody company that started working on FIFA franchise without knowing the shape of the ball, let alone the rules. FIFA is not a game to have fun with, it's a full time job for those who are better at exploiting the broken mechanics and make profit from it, but still spending huge amount of hours on it. Now that the weather is getting better, go out and look after some real football to play instead of this cancerous crap.

    People complained about players auto-lunging at balls last year, and this "Off" setting was EA's solution

    So stupid

    Don't believe you about the 100. This game however can make any donkey look pretty good due to the broken mechanics, physics, animations, passing and shooting assistance. The more you use your brain the more you get punished for it. This game is the biggest mindfuck ever. It rewards complete **** for doing thoughtless, non sensible things and punishes the ones that actually put some thought behind things.

    I'm not the greatest player, but I find that playing division rivals on weekends is much better. All the try hards are busy trying to get weekend league rewards. Most average players, at least imo, stay away from that cesspool of a game mode....

    I lose a lot more during the week than I do on the weekend.

    i was division 5 about two weeks ago. I know to get better you need to drop back and put defender depth at 1 and only control your cdm or striker even and let the AI defend. I know about the small pool of players you need to use to get wins. I just don't want to play like that! That's why i was very average before. But I used to win quite a few games in my div also. But lately its very very much downhill... I don't need to watch some youtuber explaining the meta to me. I want to play football, not the meta thing EA pretends to be football.

    I kind of believe him. A few weeks ago I went from 1300 rating to 600... nothing went in. Nothing. I'm back to 1200 now, but that was the worst week I have ever had.

    He might be putting it a little harshly but in fact he is kinda right. This game is total RNG! Watch a few youtubers who actually know something about the game. Italianstallion, Inception, Nelly,...
