    I’ve got three kiddos and a wife at home. Definitely makes it harder to get games in (especially online). I basically just squeeze in a few games a week now, where as back in FIFA 11/FIFA 12 I used to play a ton. Family is way more important.

    I’ve a 3 month old baby. I’ve cut playing fifa ALOT. No time to trade so I just buy some FP off and on for some thrills. (IKR)

    normally during WL I play like 5-7 games where it’s easier. Normally I’ll be like 5-2 or 6-1 something like that. My Nephew who’s really good at FIFA will then help me hit gold 2 to gold 1 with his spare time. I just open the packs as some cheap thrills on Thursdays

    I have never got to 20 games in a weekend league never mind 30. I’m lucky to get that many games in all week

    Woah. Wrote the thread last night and woke up to all these comments. It’s great!! Also forgot to mention I have to quit games if baby wakes up from naps for feedings. Really sucks when I’m wining the games lol.

    I have a 2 year old daughter. It is definitely hard to squeeze in games. I only play if my wife and my kid are sleeping.

    I will not sacrifice my precious time with them than grind for a tots gomis or jumbo rare players pack.

    Has to be tough to get games in correct? I actually played more than ever this weekend and stopped one game short of gold one. Had to stop to take care of family stuff and a 5 month old. One game!!! Lol. Still had 7 games left also. Dad life is no small task lol.

    Bye jumbo rare packs :'(

    Won't be long until you can give FIFA away and coach your little one. Can't wait for it myself personally

    Fifa lasts for 11 months and it starts over. A childhood and all the memories lasts forever

    EA is doing their best for us to ignore our kids and play 24/7. But you cant change us!
    You never will! All for one, one for all!

    I was kicked from 2 games this weekend because of my son kicking off in the middle of the night. He's only 3 months old

    One day I will make him play weekend league for me an I'll just open all the packs

    I make my son play squad battles for me hes 7 put it on beginner he bangs in about 10 goals then tells me hes the best at fifa lol

    I do this 2 but my son is catching on pretty fast he plays on professional now also 7 years old if it wasn’t for him helping with squad battles I would definitely miss out on some rewards and he also likes it

    I only play WL after my kid goes to bed. Any other time, it's impossible.

    I’m a single parent to a 6 year old girl and have her every other week so the one weekend i can play whenever i like and the weekends i have her i only play at night when she's in bed, so then it's a struggle to play, but most of the times i manage to get gold3 where i always stop.
    But i have to say i also skipped a few WL's because i was away for the weekend with my daughter and that's far more important to me then a few games with terrible rewards.

    I only had time for WL 10 games, played on Friday and Saturday nights. Sunday the weather is finally good, so brought family out to the sixflags. At night, after kid went to bed, it's the GoT finale.

    I fight with this every weekend with a 10 month old and a 6 year old. Its really really hard for me to play weekend league and do the objectives (plus I am a G3-G2) player so I have to make hard choices. The past two weekends for me I've gone the Objective route due to time constraints during the week would make it impossible to do a ton of rivals and squad battles.

    How could you possibly DJ her school dances as a teenager. I'd be mortified if that was my dad... i don't think I could put my kids through that!

    She loves it actually. Her classmates actually requested me.......I have a lot of major contacts in the music biz and I used to DJ at a high level. Still promote and bring shows to my area here in the states.

    But to the point of WL....the kid I'm not worried about...its the girl friend I worry about.

    Yeah I'm sad like that I often wake up at 6am to play in silence for 2 hours before the hoard wake up .

    Way I see it is, it's a hobby but not 1 that should effect anyone else's time apart from your own .
