Great to get my life back

Became so obsessed with FIFA that was skipping gym sessions just to keep grinding. Was running less, and not going out as much.
Finally normality has returned and yesterday went the whole day without even turning on the xbox.

Determined not to let fifa 20 take over my life. Have decided no weekend league for me next season, but will still partake of other modes but not too such an obsessive extent.

    good for you man.
    I'm doing the same next year. Tried FUT for the first time this year and it's addictive and waste your time.

    Good for you brother!!
    It’s a addiction! I was stressing playing games during the weekend, still trying to find time for family and go out with friends. Don’t touch fifa 20 or it will hook you back and it is the same gridding all over for the same cards you have it now.

    If this game was at least decent, without major problems like AI defending and button delay...

    But imagine how dumb we are for spending our priceless hours of our beautiful lifes on this worst trash ever made.

    I’m with you guys, I hope I’m not gonna play this trash again.

    I'm also considering skipping next FIFA, 19 was very time consuming, and 20 might be about the same, I'll get back on FIFA on the next PS5 ;)

    I mean it is kinda sad to read that everybody's only reason to (not) buy fifa 20 is because FUT is trash. I mean i bought every fifa since ps3. And i totally agree FUT is kinda addicted. And i was addicted until fifa 17. After that, only play casually and enjoyed Pro Clubs etc. And there is Volta next year so there are so many modes other than FUT to not buy the game.

    I have already ordered 20 and looking forward to it. Love doing SBCs and trading on the app, so not giving up totally. Just will not play weekend league or grind for squad battle rewards.

    This season I worked out can get more money trading than grinding, so why bother with that side of it. Will just play rivals when in the mood and do the weekly challenges when there is a good card on offer

    Same , haven't played the last 2 weekend leagues stopped with objectives feels good . They sent me Beta but not bothering with that . Around xmas next year I'll most probably play seasons but not Ultimate team it's more addictive then enjoyable

    Your right rkid frikin grind the first 10 months to get your super team, them boom comes to futties and you can basically get a superior team for next to nothing. So why not just make Fifa a 6 week cycle every year .

    Just don't buy FIFA20. Will be hard to resist if you really have a problem staying away from it.

    If you're sensitive to addiction you'll find another one. Better be fifa than crack.

    Just as a warning...i wasn't going to buy 19 but then last minute decided 'oh I'll just make a Liverpool team and a cheap Serie A squad and play it casually with no grind'. 11 months later and I've grinded every weekend league, all fut swaps and most weekly objective free cards.

    I'm done. Its best to just not buy it at all....and I'm not even tempted to touch 20. The whole mode is designed for either spending loads of money or grinding non stop, and its not worth the risk of getting sucked in.

    This is exactly me, they suckered me in with icon gerrard and i said a liverpool team and cheap seria A to play casual, here i am playing another weekend league without missing one all year.

    Just cant buy 20 for my own sanity.

    Plus EA dont deserve our time or respect, absolute ****
