Yeah - that's the issue - massive difference between the DKT & Seasons, to the WL. They certainly crawl out and become super duper intense on winning.

Last night I played my usual warm up - laggy as game in D1. Easy win though and then moved onto the final in the DKT (won the first 3 on Monday night).

Was up 3-0 before HT ... scored 4 OG's and quit. Simply don't want to face that lag in Seasons.

With the kid away & sneaking into Gold 3 last week - I decided to open the 3 pack monthly one ... Diego Costa.

Great! :P

Surely you guys are going to beat that. Please!

I got Alonso, Keane, Biglia and Pazdan. Not the worst. Sold my Keane for 85k, a 20k profit.
Also got a walkout from my bronze 1 weekly rewards. Godin.
Not a bad result.

Went into the daily knockout and won it with 6-2, 1-1 (3-1 pens), 2-0 and 3-1 wins.

Not sure what'll happen with weekend league. Will probably play a few each day, maybe get bronze 1 or silver 3.

Played five games last night and it was awful. Delay, players unable to control simple balls, just dreadful. Opponents of course where playing perfect no look, first touch 180 degree passes with ease.
One game was just stupid. He had David Luiz absolutely steamrolling all my players who needed two seconds to do anything even from a simple ball rolled into them.
Somehow came out of it 3-2.
Played one more this afternoon and totally destroyed the opponent, running up a 3-0 lead inside 25 minutes. Then the 45th minute! Gave away a penalty somehow where his players slightly bumped into my clearing defender. He didn't even go down! Saved the penalty but being the 45th minute my keeper pushed the ball back into the goal whilst picking up a barely moving ball three yards from the line! Second half I knew what to expect. My players wouldn't do anything but held out until he shot from a stupid angle on 80 minutes that instead of catching, my keeper pushed out straight to his striker. It was an absolute mess trying to stop the third goal, but somehow did it.
That was enough for me, just switched it off. 4-2.

Got to 9-6 last night. Today it's just a mess. The amount of goals I've conceded from blatent fouls or tackles going straight to the opposition constantly just isn't funny. Have got to 14-12 with loads where I just quit when they just keep scoring stupid goals. It's worse than I've ever seen. Using the stand tackle button is almost suicide! Up to 14-12.

GL with the remaining games.

My games this weekend before the kid got back ... very strange. Or, 'par for the course'. These were my 'runs':
• 2 wins
• 3 losses
• 3 wins

Then the 2 wins in the next 6 games - was not quite tracking them.

Next ...
• 7 wins

Obviously I did the worst thing I could - I thought I could get to Gold 1.

• 5 losses - now, like you TWS, I was in the whole 'don't give a sh!t when they score pointless goals' mindset. So, a few of these were quick quits - think one of them when the score was 0-0 after he did 10 fake shots in a row with Azpi. SMH.

At this point the kid arrived home and between us we eked out 8 wins and quit a bunch for 21-19.

Geez ... it is really bad at the moment. Think it's only going to get worse when they open WL to those that have never qualified, but won a fair percentage of their DKT games. Or ... can it even get any worse?!?!

It'd getting worse all the time. So many games are pretty much decided by ricochets. The ball just bounces around off players crazily. The state of stand tackling by pressing the button is just a joke. I don't know but the fact that pretty much every player on most teams has maxed out stats in several areas just seems to confuse the engine somehow. Like the defender had 99 stand tackle and strength, but the attacker has 99 in balance, pace, agility and reactions so he still retains the ball even though the defender has won it. Also the way players and bouncing around off each other is just plain mad. Kind of looking forward to the next one now as the game play in this one is becoming more of a mess all the time.

I went on a usual Sunday evening decent run and ended up 23-17. And that should have been better as I lost the last game to the standard BS bounces and nonsense refereeing. Without the four quits this afternoon, this could easily have been Gold 1.

Had a few interesting games. One match the opponent had Azpilicueta and Nacho as his CB's. I played like it was Fifa 14 again! Crosses galore and headers for Pogba and Alli gave me a 2-0 win, both where the small CB's were outjumped.
And the 22nd win I was 2-0 down, but scored two completely crazy shots with TOTS Lallana to level, he started to lose the plot, and when Lallana set up TOTS Diego Costa to go 3-2 after 55 minute it was an instant rage quit. The opponents team name? Rage Quit Please.

Another interesting stat was that I didn't have a penalty shoot out until the 39th game. And I managed to come back and win from two penalties down with the opponent shooting for the match!

Back to TOTS Lallana. This card is insane. He hits the most ridiculous goals from longshots. Finishes like a top striker and is all round great. One to try 100%!

Totally agree. There is something at times that leaves a bit a speechless - wait, I'm actually cursing at the screen (when no one is around) - as the tackling is a mess as you say. Additionally, I've just found that some of the passing is just way off. Simple pass goes to the wrong player, but my opponent can do 180 deg driven passes & his players 'get it' and and control in any manner they want to.

How do

WL done on 20-20. Must say was the best connections for a number of weeks.  Only played late Friday, early Sat and again late Sunday into the early hours of Monday and the last hour before ending.

Really should've done at least gold 1 but managed to throw away about 7 of my last 11 games.  See the monthly Elite is comfortably achievable. Dunno if it is lower than past WL's, but more TOTS or maybe TOTY's as rewards will just about hold my interest.

Futties seems a strange one.  Umtiti ?? where'd that one come from?  Think also you should only be allowed to pick one 'vote' then the others are removed.  Kind of pointless if you vote for them all.

No interest in Totti or Kyut.  Came up against Totti only once and he smashed in a hattrick.  Only have eyes for Gerrard

Did have TOTS Cavani at the start of the WL, but finally got fed up.  Then progressed onto TOTS Lewandowski (he just doesn't work for me), and then settled on TOTS Mane.  None really stood out.  Sold off Mane this morning.  Thinking on TOTS Werner as a super sub, but really want to give Mertens a go, but would leave me with 0 coins, and I feel Gerrard wont come cheap.

My star of the teams this weekend goes to PSBC Torres.  When this card is on, its great to use.

Will try to get the FUT Birthday player then leave until WL again

I'm sure I say the same thing every week, but the gameplay is absolutely terrible this weekend. The games mostly are decided by either whos goalkeeper plays best, who gets a lucky bounce or who gets done over by dodgy animations. I swear the auto lunge this is costing me more goals every week.

Went 4-5 on Friday and am now 10-12. Playing badly and losing constantly in games where I have at least double goal attempts.
The final game tonight I built a new team of Serie A and La Liga players. It played well, although I only won on penalties, so have brought in TOTS Gomez to replace the SIF, and TOTS Chiellini to replace Barzagli. The team also contains red versions of SIF El Sha, SIF Hamsik, IF Garay and TOTS Biglia. Not using the Bundesliga side for now though, will have to use SBC Alonso another time. Jury is still out on him.

Played some this morning. Things got worse as I slipped to 10-14, but three straight wins pulled it back to 13-14. Hopefully the regular Sunday evening good results run will get me to Gold 3, but I wouldn't bet on it judging by the state of the goals that I keep conceding. Just a complete mess and joke of a game at the moment, game play wise. EA deserve some sort of medal for allowing it to be this bad. A major achievement!

At one point earlier, I conceded a free kick out on the wing. Unfortunately, my keeper became stuck in some weird animation where he wondered off towards the side of the six yard box, shaking his head or something similar. All this as the ball was in play and being crossed into my box! Luckily I got there first and put it out for a corner. If the ball had gone on goal, I may have put my controller through the TV screen!

"controller through screen" ... the old question of "why do I let this game get to me so much?". Can only agree that there does seem to be more & more things that feel broken in this game.

For me, WL has been the typical yo-yo. Win some, lose some.
Friday night the kid started - finished on 1-1 and didn't want to play any more. I picked up the controller & got to 4-3 before turning it off.
Saturday - during the day tried a few times. Lost a couple, lost a couple, lost another. Switched off.
Saturday night - picked up and won 4 in a row. SMH. It was 8-8 then.
Busy day yesterday (Sunday) meant I only started later afternoon. Erratic stuff as normal, but think I picked up 5 wins and think there were 3 or 4 losses in there. Last game -
 just that awful game where passes just don't go where you want them too. He got a penalty in the 70th-odd minute with the score 1-1 & I simply quit - before he could take it. The state of the game is ensuring I act more like a pr!ck the more I play. CBA.

Didn't play again myself - ended on 13 wins so enough of that too.

But - did play the DKT ... won that between the kid and I. Got Kimmich and access again. Great.

Looks like we are all sick of the nonsense of this FIFA! I've played only about 5 games all week! Wasn't too bad in that 3 gold, 6 silver, 2 bronze tournament, a few different teams and nice to have a bit of use from TOTS Akinde and TOTS Wheeler at RM to link him. Was in the final but had no motivation to play it despite it not being too bad.

Will be steering clear of weekend league this weekend. Maybe play a few in the tournaments next week but that's about it. Never been so off FIFA since when I swapped to bronze only back at the tail end of FIFA 13.

Of course I'll be getting 18, but the game right, specifically gameplay, now is just a mess.
