    Building a top team is so much easier than it was in the older FUT editions, so my enjoyment is probably higher these days. Objectives, SBCs, experience rewards all never used to exist. Just wish I had more time to play!

    I love squad building, doing SBCs and creating teams. When I’m winning online or at least playing fair competitive games it’s enjoyable, when I play games where it just seems random and pre determined (see my last thread) it drives me mad.

    It would be much easier to not bother playing but my untradable pack luck has been crazy. I’ve got Son, CR7, baby Cruyff, baby Dinho, baby Butra all packed. Also packed Messi and IF Varane tradable. Feels like a waste if I just stopped playing or if I only played offline.

    Because it is slightly less frustrating/annoying than my wife 😂
  • Fifa was the only game I played, so I ended up selling my PS4 and giving up 2 months ago.

    I stay on here (which seems to offend some people) for the real football section and for the bants..

    EA have killed this franchise by their greed and its just not fun anymore. They pry on the weak and young and I'm not a fan of that kind of model. So I said "I'm out"
  • I think because we love football and that's why we play FIFA. I know it could be better and more realistic but it's a kind of football.
    I'm not playing SB and as less rivals as I can (just for the Rank 2 ). I am playing WL and I hope I can build a decent Liverpool team with (Gerrard, Van Dijk ect..)
    Yesterday I played WL and I had a couple of match which was full of small bugs (the ball went through my players legs and these things) I was 4:1 down but we were just laughing with my girlfriend (she loves football too) because it's just a game and somehow we managed 19 wins so it's cool sometimes we have just 14 wins but we learned that's the way how it goes. The only thing what we hate the cheaters (I'm on PC) and the no loss connection cheaters because it's so annoying cuz Ea could fix it easily.

    Addicted to the competition and the chance of getting great rewards. I love football, and I guess cling on to hope that one day that this will be a fair, competitive game

    Game is decent when it plays without lag (maybe half the time).

    I dont own any other game, Im a creature of habit. Sometimes I load the game up and think what am I doing playing this crap and turn it off straight away. I probably enjoy 1 game in 5. Its fully compromised, scripted, laggy horse ❤️❤️❤️❤️ anyway.

    Ive won 320 and lost 320. Somehow I have only drawn 30????? 🙄🙄🙄

    How is that even possible???

    Community is so fuckking disgusting. That makes the game bad and boring

    EA are complicit in how toxic the community is.

    Make no mistake they could improve the community if they wanted, they don't because the profit off of how it is.

    EA has nothing to do with how people are acting in game.

    Fifa is still enjoyable somewhat. 20 is way better than 19 for me

    Am aiming to quit as its not really an enjoyable game for me anymore. Can never progress past my wl rank as the script wont allow me to. That is a sign of a bad game, why would you keep on playing something you can never improve on. Plus so many other games ive not played yet due to fifa that i feel ive missed out on. Will have to trade it in though as if i still have a copy i know i'll give in and go back to the pain.

    I´ve deleted my team and I´ve created a new one to play against a friend that just bought the game. I was able to build two teams with regular players and I´m enjoying without the mental pressure of "I have to win" because I have Ronaldo. If the players do not move or turn ( whatever is the reason ) it won´t be Ronaldo that worth 1 million coins, it will be Ben Yedder NIF or Gabriel Jesus NIF.

    Except FUTMAS all of them are NIF

    Team Hybrid La Liga-Premier: Areola, Wan-Bissaka, Gomez, Eder Militao, Junior Firpo :D; De Jong, Delph (FUTMAS); Cazorla (FUTMAS); Shaqiri (FUTMAS), Gabriel Jesus, Vinicius Junior.

    Team Hybrid Bundesliga-Ligue 1: Burki, Kimmich, Boateng, Hernandez, Schulz; Verrati, Goretzka; Draxler; Di Maria, Ben Yedder, Perisic.

    After 3 weeks I´ve played a WL with these two teams and I´ve reached 17 with 4 matches left.

    I´ve packed De Bruyne ( SOLD ) and I´ve just packed Mbappé ( I´ll play a few with him because I never did it but I´ll sell him too )

    I enjoy playing both teams just for fun and facing my friend in friendlies.

    Now with the money from De Bruyne, I´ll build a new Hybrid, probably between Serie A and Eredivisie.

    In the end, I´m not playing FUT, I´m not looking for an ultimate team or meta, I don´t care objectives but if I like an SBC I´ll do it. I don´t care about Icons Swaps so no mess playing matches with players I don´t like.

    I don't even try at this game anymore. I hadn't played WL for 2 weeks so decided to grind the 1000 points on Friday. My WL started well enough on Saturday and I went 6-0 then 6-2 then 9-4. I didnt care at that point about playing but want G3 rewards. I was quitting games when 1 down for easy wins and before I knew it I was on 12 with a games left.

    I lost the next game 😂. First time I've never got into gold when ive gone for it. I just play the game in auto pilot I dont really try.

    On the plus side I unlocked a gold desert eagle last night on MW.

    I love football and enjoy making squads and coming here on forum even if i am not playing it. I am usualy stop playing fifa around February because i want to play another games but yes, fifa is my addiction. This year i played around 500 games. I didn't touched rivals for a month now, sitting there in division 4.
    Playing only WL until Gold 2 and SB until Elite 1.
    I am not playing because of rewards, they are trash anyway, playing only because i want to improve my game.
    Fifa 20 is far away from perfect game but It's better than Fifa 19 which i stopped playing in November.

    Because it's honestly nowhere near as bad as the community makes out, they just love a moan and this forum is the platform for it.

    Game isn't to bad,
    I login, play some games and when I've had enough I turn it off.

    I play futchamps when and if I can be bothered it's simple as that

    Community is listening to people on YouTube who ain't happy with content, unreadable packs etc etc. This is the main problem with Fifa

    I love football, and like the way i can express that through creativity on the pitch...as one would in a real game.

    There's also the element of competition.

    I also find a quirky by product of Fifa is an almost encyclopedic knowledge of footballers from across the world, or at the very least Europe.

    It's just a shame we have to put up with so much nonsense.

    But, until we get more than one game with all the official licenses, and more than two full stop, we aren't going to see much change.

    Competition is the best thing for us, the consumer, and in reality E.A has no competition.

    This has seen them become lazy, complacent, and we've accepted it.

    Remember, E.A only have the money and the power because we give it to them willingly.

    If we stop buying the game, or stop buying points, they will change...they absolutely 100% will.

    Unfortunately, the masses, the everyday players who don't frequent these forums, and this is especially prevalent among the youngest players, are not aware there is much of an issue and have no opinion (or awareness) of things we talk about (lag, delay, terrible SBCs, scripting etc...).

    Fifa 20 has been the most financially successful game yet; so that tells you the scale of the fight.
