Patch has killed my enjoyment.

Anyone else? I can't seem to do anything i used to, my players just aren't responding. I can't put together any combinations, it's so frustrating to play. I don't understand the defending anymore, it's like there is a forcefield around my opponents in some games.

The worst part is, something is back and more prominent in the game again. Its always been there, but in 19 and 20, it hasn't been as bad as previous years. But since the patch, when i come up against these weak teams, one with a few silvers or cheap gold teams, people doing objectives, i get hammered.

Hopefully the WL gameplay is different, but Rivals for me is unplayable at the moment.

    It was frustrating, but at least i could play my game and score good goals. I can't string any moves together anymore, something is just off after the patch. I've seen some people say the patch has been better for dribbling and small agile players but i enjoyed Messi and Scream Aguero a lot more before the patch. They can barely control the ball now.

    Just looked, my skill rating has gone from 2000 odd to 901 since the patch.

    My VVD seems to miss so many tackles these days, he used to be a beast, now he misses the ball, can’t control and the amount of times he jump between the player and the ball missing both is ridiculous!

    Exactly the same for me!! Suddenly i can’t defend....i used to win the ball back by jockeying with VVD, but now he totally misses it, and my opponent’s attacker runs away with the ball. Same with tackling.
    It’s really hard to stop players like potm yedder now...

    Yeah something feels off. Especially the last pass to get past defenders is nerfed so extremely hard. I feel forced to learn stupid skillmoves now to get past. I never get the space I need with fakeshot or ballroll and even dragbacks anymore.

    I actually had fun before the patch, yeah it had its issues but at least you could tiki taka and pass the ball

    The games never been great as EA don’t seem to care about anything other than FIFA points but this patch is definitely the worst. Good thing is it’s finally made me stop playing the game.

    I don’t mind adapting but what I do mind is the fact that when they make changes that completely affect players in game you end up with a team that used to be good, one that you spent time building only to find they are now terrible and need replacing.
