EDIT: Thanks for all the support guys. Refreshing to see people understand how frustrating this is, and not resorting to making fun of me. It's appreciated, honestly ;)


This was my result last weekend, having finished G1 consistently the past few months... I was 1 win off E3.

This weekend though, wtf is going on? I'm playing the worst I've EVER played, and it looks like I'm gonna struggle to even make S1. Look at the difference in my performance from above to this weekend, which is shown below... Seriously, 7 wins from 14 games for a consistent G1 player who nearly made E3 last weekend? How the hell can performance change that dramatically all of a sudden? I've not changed ANYTHING in my team. My players are the same, my tactics are the same, everything is the same.

People might say "it's lag" but I don't agree with that. If it was lag, then everyone would be suffering from it, even my opponents, but they're not. The ball is sticking to them like glue, they're intercepting EVERYTHING (and I mean EVERYTHING), and they're never messing up a pass or tackle. Is there some new super tactic that everyone's using? Wtf is going on?

    I haven't even started my weekend league. Maybe you should try playing until midnight. See if that makes a difference.

    I'm playing at my usual times, and never perform this badly. It can't be the time of day I'm playing, surely.

    Lag is sooo bad mate. Its not just you games feel like they are lasting forever and not free flowing at all

    Seriously try midnight. I feel gameplay is so much better. And it just may be the case that servers are way too overloaded this weekend. Just give it a try

    I learned it the hard way last weekend. Worst possible mistake you can do is play too many WL games on friday. Start off nicely and think you got it good but it will end bad

    But if that's the case, why is it not happening for everyone? That's what I mean when people blame it on lag. They don't take into account that surely my opponents would be suffering from the same, therefore it'd be a fair game.

    14 games and this early on Friday... I think there's the answer right there

    I didn't even start off good. I started on 1-7, and that was the reason I kept playing. No matter what anyone says, there's no way in hell I'm gonna stop playing and leave it until the next day when I'm on 1 win from 8. I know I should, but I'm sure you guys know how it feels when you're on a losing streak... You don't wanna quit, even though you know you should.

    Confirm that the servers are extremely laggy right now, best to play later or tomorrow

    See above post. I get where you're coming from, I really do, but I didn't even start well... I carried on playing due to losing so many games. I NEVER start off this badly.

    I play in three game chunks - taking an hour break minimum after the third (only exception is if I win 3 and gameplay is good... then I'll continue until I lose). Stops me getting too triggered and going on awful runs.

    I play in three game chunks. After the three, I'll avoid playing for at least

    But it's not like I'm magically gonna come back and play 100x better just because I take a break, surely? It seems there's far more to it than that this weekend. There's some absolute BS going on.

    You'd be surprised. Losing games can put you in a different mindset that impacts on how you play. It can be subtle enough that you don't even notice it... then you've lost 5 on the spin.

    But you probably would play better if come back later. On a losing streak you just get annoyed, much more likely to rage quit too early when another day you'd be prepared to fight for a comeback win. You make reckless rushed moves and your whole game becomes trash.
    Just take a breather and accept your poor results, make the best of it bud. It's just a stupid game after all

    Thanks mate, appreciate it. I guess you guys are right, I should've taken a break, but as I'm sure you can imagine when you're on a huge losing streak and performing the worst you've ever done, you wanna find out what's causing it. It's hard to leave as you try to stay and convince yourself that you're still decent at the game, etc. It's a vicious and annoying cycle.

    This weekend though, wtf is going on? I'm playing the worst I've EVER played, and it looks like I'm gonna struggle to even make S1. Look at the difference in my performance from above to this weekend, which is shown below... Seriously, 7 wins from 14 games for a consistent G1 player who nearly made E3 last weekend? How the hell can performance change that dramatically all of a sudden? I've not changed ANYTHING in my team. My players are the same, my tactics are the same, everything is the same.

    People might say "it's lag" but I don't agree with that. If it was lag, then everyone would be suffering from it, even my opponents, but they're not. The ball is sticking to them like glue, they're intercepting EVERYTHING (and I mean EVERYTHING), and they're never messing up a pass or tackle. Is there some new super tactic that everyone's using? Wtf is going on?

    I’m an okay player l think. Normally finish around 15 wins, but l hear what your saying bro. Struggled against a poor player and team my first game, lost against a poor player my second game, and destroyed by an ALL SILVER team in my 3rd match. In all 3 games so far, none of my players are moving as they normally do,
    Passes aren’t making their targets and the balls constantly coming straight back at me.

    What glitch is that? Do you mean everyone's using Team Press due to the stamina nerf, or something else?

    4231, but at 5 depth. Balanced tactics. Been using the same tactics for months now and usually get G1.

    True. Every game I play afterwards is a pure nightmare. I feel empty after playing a couple of games. Feels like my team is completely uncontrollable. As we speak I'm losing 7-0 to some dude I'd normally beat easily.

    Speaking of losing to some guy you'd normally beat easily... I actually lost 7-1 earlier to a guy in WL that I beat with EASE 3 times over the past month in DR. I remember his team name and players, and they hadn't changed. It's stuff like that I don't understand at all. It shouldn't happen, but it does, and the frustrating thing is there's no answer as to WHY it's happening, it just happens.
