    I had a rating of 0 yesterday. I must have quit 300 games this year, at least. Lots of them while drawing, and some while winning.

    If I come up against an idiot 'exploiting the meta' I just quit. I only play against people who play it like a proper game of football.

    This thinking would do my stress levels the world of good.

    Don't worry about your record. Don't worry about your rating. Top rewards from Div 10 are decent with so many valuable silver players. Go for Elite on squad battles as well.

    I have a team with TOTY Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, TOTSSF Henderson, untradeable Mane, headliner Wijnaldum, icons Dalglish & Litmanen, plus Nesta, Raul, Zambrotta and Crespo. I got C Ronaldo untradeable.

    I've done all the milestones players, most of the objectives players and got all the seasons objectives completed.

    I don't play weekend league. I also don't stress about the game. I wish gameplay was more rewarding, but it isn't and won't change.

    Thanks for the advice. I think I may take this attitude more!

    Surely no one believes Fifa 19 was closer to reality then Fifa 20? That’s a joke right?

    Last year was about la croquettas, flick up shots, flick up crosses, el tornado crosses, first time shots from stupid angles. Last year was entirely down to who could exploit the mechanics best, it was nothing to do with football.

    Fifa 20 isn’t perfect don’t get me wrong, but there’s a lot less exploits in this game compared to last year. Most of the people who moan this game is worst then last year are the ones who manipulated the flick up shots etc to get wins. There’s definitely a bigger skill gap this year, not saying the gameplays perfect at all but last year was a joke and many people have forgotten how bad it was.

    I'm not saying 19 was better. I was better as I like playing with big players and I love a header! Headers are scored quite regularly in real football so didn't find that too bad.

    I would say el tornado and scoop shot were done more by players of a high level and I didn't see it too often. Drag back is done by everyone.

    My problem isn't with fifa 20 but with how unrealistic fifa has been for years with stupid exploits.

    EA need to have a system to track how often a player does a particular thing during games, and gradually make the error rate higher for those things. Force people to vary their game.

    It´s difficult to know which one is your level in this game. For instance, during a WL I´ve played against the same team I faced in rivals a few days before ( I know the guy that play with that team ) I won 5-1, while in rivals I lost 4-0. So what´s my level?

    Anyway, all I´ve learned playing FUT It´s worth when I face my friends online or offline. I really feel I´m better than before and I won most of the games easily. When comes to FUT I don´t see any improvements. My results are always the same.

    Yeah I have to agree I used to be okay , I too am a big fan of “ real “ football . I try not to abuse the mechanics where I can .

    I think the birth of places like this , you tube social media has allowed people to literally get so much information about Fifa and what works best that the standard has gone up every year . I think you have to be a really good player to hit 20 wins this year , like really good

    I'm not good, just about get gold 3 each week. I know absolutely no skill moves and can't be bothered to learn any either.

    Me. I try to play actual football and always end up losing because of it...

    A football game that is not about football is something incredible

    I feel the more you want to play football the worse you become at Fifa

    Mostly accurate — no headers for goal unless Valdemort is active is enug to make this a simulation of German youth indoor hall tournaments — wait, I’ve said this like 20xs before —

    The young pros I know don’t touch this game tbh, when they do & I watch them, they laugh and complain about the same things we do — but from my experience the real people who play thie real game well — don’t play this anymore -

    I'm 39 with 3 young kids. Haven't touched weekend league in years. Only really play rivals for objectives so never use a main team per say but I'm bad! Don't skill and sitting in Div 9! Managed to get Rio in 1st swaps, Essien in 2nd and a token away from Maradona but still undecided between him, Rush and Dalglish

    Played my first WL two weeks ago finished 10-something.. didn’t get S1 so I had to grind again for fut WL points.. this week finished S1.. well I stopped with 2 games remaining, I guess I’m back next week.
    Rivals playing objectives went up to div 5.. dropped to 9.. got my 🎃🎃🎃🎃 kicked in div 9.. hammered people in div 6 so go figure.. back to div 7 now and I’m losing 0-5 and winning 8-1.. 6-6 tie, and few other wins, while using gotze gold

    It's been crap for me, never really aged wl until this year but I'm in division 5 this year.

    I was division 1 last few years so doubt I've got so 🎃🎃🎃🎃 at this to actually drop that far in half this games cycle. Never bought fp so probably ea's greed pushing me down now

    Yeah I'm thinking Maradona on market value alone. I have 1.8m so I could prob still buy Rush n Dalglish. Heard bad things about Maradona's stamina

    Last year I was gold 2 regularly and sometimes gold 3. This year its regularly silver 1 and sometimes gold 3.

    I guess its because I still see this as a football game where vision and beautiful passing should be credited. However, skills and drag backs are far too OP and its just not football anymore.

    Oh well, silver 1 op got me Fekir last week so see what Thursday brings!

    I too believe in that philosophy,,,

    Still m pretty bad at using skill moves(even drag backs)

    19 was an all round better gaming experience. I never performed el tornado or la croquesttas and made it to DIV 1 playing 532. Gameplay was better, content was better, SBCs were better, market was better.

    19 was not better because of spamming of skill moves(ppl wld literally chain la croq from kick off n score),, overpowered heading(just cross at that far post n get a goal),,, ai defending(ppl wld switch to a front man, n let ai make all the blocks n tackles) ,,,constant press was op

    20 was better when released,, but those uncalled changes have somewhat ruined it

    Yupp I'm crap. Constantly getting silver one and a blue moon will hit g3. Part of the problem is I refuse to use meta formations and meta players. I would rather be crap and have fun then be decent and get no enjoyment

    Yeah I’m also crap!

    I’m that crap that I don’t even bother playing rivals! And as for weekend league...looooooool.

    I just play a few squad battle games now against teams that are low rated and low chemistry on legendary. I absolutely beat the crap out of those teams!

    I've found this year particularly frustrating because they seem to have nerfed everything that made me a good FIFA player such as crosses, target men etc and buffed everything I'm rubbish at like skill moves etc. The only skill move I can time is a berba spin. I'm hopeless at even timing ball rolls.

    Complicated for me if I have great gameplay for a consistent amount of time then yeah I get used to it and am quite decent, the game then turns to mud and the other team is on crack then lose all confidence. Play on and after a while I get used to that and I can start to win games again , the problem is over 30 games you have no chance to find out if you are good or not it’s not a fair game it’s definitely not a esports game . Been playing for 10 years and never learnt a skill move so as you can imagine as the years go by this game is getting beyond me.
