Have discovered the secret to playing FIFA. Have a few things going on at present so tonight bought a few drinks, completed all of Sleeping Dogs and it's DLC so loaded up FIFA. Also with the added bonus of tethering it with 4G from my phone.
A good few bottles of cidar down and I have got to 5-0. Had no BS, not one dodgy animation gifting the ball to the opponent or anything even slightly dubious. My opponents though...... Some of the stuff I can see happening is what always happens to me none stop. They take ages to control balls so an easy tackle a lot of the time. My defenders are making superhuman blocks as the opponent struggles to get shots away, and best of all, the game for me is flowing so well. It's got to be based on connection all this stuff that goes on. Maybe I've been lucky and tomorrow I could lose five in a row but the game play has never been so good as this. And this is with too much alcohol to drive in me.

And one game, the opponent was all over me. Having 65% possession and 12 shots, but I'm winning 1-0 at halftime. The second half continued the same way and after he racks up about 10 corners, I break from one and after three rebounds, two from the keeper and one of a defender, it's 2-0. Ends up 4 shots for me, 17 for him. LOL!
Basically play on dial up and you'll win!

Finished 18-12 today. I think 8 of the losses, I simply quit - some even when it was goalless. For instance one guy was wasting so much time, that when I scored an offside goal - and he watched the damn replay - I quit (60-ish minute). CBA.

Overall though - some scary teams, but the quality of player is definitely down. Maybe my intermittent quitting helped find the useless saps.

The sad truth ... it's boring. Started a session - won 3 of 4 games, and stopped. Simply no motivation. Nothing new ... ::)

Hi fellas

Pretty much settled on my final 2 teams for the death of FUT. Gerrard, Alonso, Lahm & POTM Ibra have filled the gaps nicely.

Champs is the same old story. Win one, lose one.  I get the feeling I'm slap bang in the middle of a skill level.  When I win, it goes up one, get beat and it returns back down a level.  Just like seasons I suppose

Hope you are all well.  Check back in soon

Looks like it's just for now Simmo ;D

Had a good run last night myself - surprisingly - ended 6-1 for the night. Quality of opposition does seem down on this side, must be honest. I guess them opening the flood gates for 'others' to get in, has impacted this region more so.

People around today, so not going to be playing much. This morning I did decided to do the MM SBC's rather than play 2/3 games. Quite ridiculous the prices at the moment ... :o ... but was 'rewarded' with an Oblak in the last rare gold pack ... 25k worth. Great, I can potentially use him for Florenzi's CM SBC.

Before I continue, during the week did the Chinese New Year SBC ... walkout ... Brazil flag ... Jonas. TOTS card is great for generations, but what is it going to take to get pull Neymar this year (not trying to be too greedy, am I :D)?!?! Given that we've pulled so many (untradeable) Brazilian walkouts. Jonas - IF's & Monthly Red cards (both x 2!). Then, Casemiro - IF, TOTT AND TOTS - used the IF and TOTT already in other SBC's.

So, onto this TOTT player ... walkout, Brazil ... Casemiro.

FFS!!!

I've been pretty quiet of late. Had some major stuff going on and not been much chance to play.

I'm pretty much screwed when it comes to playing FIFA. Living in a different place now and have BT internet that is three times faster than the old Sky internet. Doesn't mean much though. On Wednesday the game was totally unplayable. Speed up lag and button delay like I've never seen before! Really bad.
In Thursday it was good and I made it through the tournament pretty easily. This weekend league though is so bad. Speed up lag and button delay and the game feeling awful. Players feel like they are being pulled away from the ball. Absolutely terrible. Have managed to win a couple of games from six, but the days of me getting Gold 2 every week are gone with this sort of stuff going on.

Also tried a few games against a friend in London last night on H2H seasons. First game played perfect, second was vert laggy, the third was the laggiest game of FIFA either of us had ever played. Was like a PowerPoint presentation!

So with this sort of thing going on, my days of playing lots of FIFA could be done.

Stuck with it as connection seemed better. Reeled off three straight wins, destroying the opponents, hitting in seven in one match, beating a La Liga 92 rated team and taking apart the last. No delay at all. It's all so connection based.

That sucks mate. And totally agree with you. I'm just stunned at the differences at times, in between a session, or a day.

People gone, back on the horse. Need 20 wins for an Elite 3 monthly finish ... going for that. With the start last night, obviously I was preparing for a rough ride. And that it was!! 1-5 ...

But then, it turned of course ... thankfully! 4-1 between turning off. Overall - I can truly say that there was little difference in opposition. Should've/could've won 3/4 of the first 6 games, easily. Just one of those sessions where no matter what you try, it ain't going your way.

Struggled with a few red cards tonight, raging a bit too much in those games. One game though, Varane got 2 yellow cards for the softest of fouls ... was gobsmacked when the 2nd came out. Frustrating.

So ... 11-6 so hope to get the remaining wins and end it there given we have some more company tomorrow.

Got the necessary wins last night for monthly Elite 3, as well as an extra 1 for Gold 2, with 4 games remaining.

Could've been a better record, but for me not giving a crap about Son + pausing at the start. Think I quit 3/4 games when that happened - couldn't care.

Well, something very strange happened this weekend.  I actually enjoyed the whole FUT Champs experience  :o

Usual form of BS throughout, but went into it feeling no pressure or without any expectations.

Comfortably got the 18, needing 20 for Elite 3 monthly.  Which again came easily.  1st time this year Elite and gold 2 for the week.

I have next weekend without wife and kids and will likely be my last WL for this FIFA as I go on annual holidays afterwards. August will be the last of the WL I presume.  As for 18, I'll get it, but maybe not until I get the XB1X.  Also after years of spending, and this year finally getting 2 teams which are by far the best of any FIFA, I'm going RTG only.  Chances are there will be little glory though.  Still it will save me a fair few quid and my sanity

Didn't play anymore weekend league games 4-4 got me the wins for Gold 3 monthly. No wish to play anymore than that!
Monday night I switched to some new teams, and for a change built two 433(5) teams. Really enjoyed the four games I played.
Played a bit this morning as well. Walked through to the tournament final but then the nonsense started. Conceded when the opponent played a through ball that was so off the mark it was ridiculous. Of course the game decides that my defender will miscontrol it, let it bounce through his legs and then run off uncontrollably in the opposite direction! A complete and utter joke. The game play is shambolic at times. After that I just started being stupid because what's the point when this sort of crap happens? Obviously this was the 45th minute.

Played the first round again afterwards and came up against a starter team, full of loans, bronzes and no chemistry. My team felt dreadful. The worst of any game of FIFA I've ever played! I had shot after shot, but his keeper saved everything. Penalty, saved. Not long after, open goal, but from 5 yards somehow the shot hits the post. Was impossible to miss! Sure enough, 45th minute and a sequence of strange bounces and my keeper pushing a ball at a strange angle to the opponents striker and I'm 1-0 down. 25 shots and eventually I score. On 90 minutes. Just a joke of a game.
In extra time my players felt even worse. Got two more goals quickly, but my team performed like no stamina bronzes. A 3-1 win with 33 shots to 1 but this was enough. Can't be dealing with this dreadful gameplay so that'll be me done for another week as I'm off to London until next Tuesday.

They really need to sort this crap game play out for 18, but you just know it'll be even worse.

Came back from London last night and did some SBC's. Actually did the MM's on the phone app a few days ago and got TOTS Vossen as the reward. Had the players for the Chemistry is Key SBC and got TOTS Quaresma. Being a walk out, I did get teased with the possibility of a 99 Ronaldo walking out!
Decided against any of the player SBC that are about to expire, but can easily do the Gerrard one and just have to click submit if I decide to.

This morning the rain was absolutely crazy, so had some time to kill before I ventured out. Chucked together a couple of teams and went into the tournament. Started with a quick 2-0 rage quit win, and 4-1 and 4-0 wins followed. It was stupidly easy, especially after not playing the game for over a week.
The final was a lot tougher and some very dodgy stuff was going on. I equalised on 45 minutes through a comical own goal, the sort that normally happens to me! When I went 2-1 down on 80 minutes, thought that was that but straight from kick off, I passed around and was magically undefendable and made it 2-2 straight away. Hit the post twice after that in extra time and really should have won.
The penalty shoot out was laughable. My first three penalties were all saved into the net, then when I had two penalties that I had to save to win, my keeper made laughable attempts and kneed them both in with exactly the same broken animation. Eventually I made the save and it was weekend league qualification again!
The game was quite fun as connection seemed decent and was using some of the different special cards I have tucked away. My red Max Kruse did very well! Also 91 Isco in the other team is a very good false 9 and did well in the final.

Also got gold 3 monthly rewards from the two weeks at the start of July I played, and they weren't too bad. Got 86 Insigne, 86 Carrasco and Nkoulou, the Lyon CB.

Hey all.

Got pretty much fk all in my elite monthlies.  More fodder for any SBC's that have any interest.  Comfortable 20 wins this past WL.  Likley to not complete all this coming weekend, but it's my last as i'm off mid week after for 10 days.

Surprised to see FUT going out with a whimper after those End of an Era SBC's.  Kinda daft how the best of SBC's is a better promo than Futties... or should I say the Premier league sweat awards

Have had some spare time the past couple of days and have been playing weekend league. On Thursday I completed the Gerrard and Lahm SBCs and have put them and Alonso into a new team. The gameplay has been surprisingly smooth mostly as well.
Am currently 20-15 and actually enjoying it.
