What is it with these OP gold teams

During todays WL i played 3 times against a normal Gold backline of players like Rüdiger, Bailly, Valencia, Rose,Sanchez

They constantly outmuscled ,outrun my players like Pele, FB Torres ; PIM RIvaldo etc. Their positioning was almost perfect, they could intercept almost every pass I made.

The other matches where I played against teams full of Icons and other special cards their defenders didnt give me that much of a hard time.

Coincidence ? Why can I easily beat PIM Nesta, Maldini, Van Dijk etc but as soon as a damn 81 rated CB comes up I'm screwed ? its ridiculous guys

    Its mainly the coding to “close the skill gap” that was marketed a lot before game release

    When I am experiencing this I switch over to my non-rare golds after a few games. And suddenly... the advantage is on me.

    Beating 89 or higher rated teams with 78 rated non-rares. Only EA...

    Just make a full silver team and see your connection troubles go away.. I always switch to my silver side when it starts to get unbearable. Enough to compete for G1 every week.

    PS: the most OP thing is: put Zlatan up top in a full 90+ pace silver team with a capable, average rated, tallGK (Butland, NIF Donnarumma, etc)

    I know sometimes the game dont go your ways .. but dont forget that this players are defenders it wont matter if they are rated 80-82 you slap a chemestry card on them and they do a pretty good job .. but on the other side i know what you meant .. went this game dont want you to win everything goes on the opponents side ..

    I have a silver Bundes2 side i like to use, it's great, people get so desperate. Go 1-0 up and watch the gaps appear left right and centre as they do everything to try score, then 2-0. Hank Veerman > VVD for headers. It's somewhat comical how that team will compete with 90+ rated sides at times. It shouldnt be a contest but whatever they did to this game basically means anyone can beat anyone if the games on your side.

    Maybe it's the players that use those teams don't rely on sheer opness of elite tier players and mostly are good in passing, build up, timing the challenges and defending.
    I also thought on getting rid of my 30KK team to play with normal rare gold players for a while.
    And have a reality check on my skill level as a player without my God squad.
    Think about their perspective only playing against better sides. With better player with better stats. Yet we moan.

    As someone who only started fut last month I can tell you it is annoying coming up against God sides all the time, finally starting to at least fill my team with 89+ players.

    Hes probably the better player. Its annoying, i know but if someone with a gold team can compete with icon teams he is usually quite good.

    2 weeks ago I sold my entire team and finished gold 2 with an 84 mostly gold squad. The entire upgrade pressure is mostly placebo. This WL I lost more games vs full goldsquads than vs full icon/tots squads. If it were only me and just a few games I would say its coincidence but everyone is experiencing this. It just further shows how EA is screwing over our minds with this game. No more fifa for me next year.

    My TOTY Ramos getting outpaced by FB Ibra several times, NIF Griezmann bullying PIM Desailly of the ball, NIF Promes winning headers vs anyone in my team.....EA logic to make me feel unstatisfied with my team. I am sick of the hidden gamemechanics toying with my mind to try to make me spend money on packs.
