Oh and also have 3421 setup as my ultra attacking formation. It completely destroys defences! Have saved, won so many games by overwhelming defences with this late on in games

My enjoyment has gone up a bit the past week or so. True, there us some horrendous stuff in there and they do seem to be addressing it in the next patch. In 150 games though, I've yet to concede a near post bicycle kick. I think the way I have defended corners since FIFA 14 and practise at the amount of times people try it have helped.
What has helped me start enjoying myself has been the switch to 352. It's possible to pull apart the narrow high pressure teams and there always seem to be passing options. In the week and a half I've used it, only once have I been exposed on the wings and that was against a very good player in Weekend League, but the counter to that is to have a 4231(2) set up in your match plans.
Onto Weekend League, and I only had time to play seven games last weekend because of work but the opponents were no worse than what you would come up against during the week. The biggest problem was the button delay and lag, which at times was incredible. Managed to get to 4-3 and played against a really good player. Unfortunately haven't played enough to qualify this weekend when I'm not working but never mind. More time for Fortnite and Red Dead 2!

The biggest news though was my Division Rival rewards this morning. Switched on as I had a spare half hour before work and had earned Division 5 rank 2. Took the untradables as i'm doing pack only apart from occassional IF purchases, so that was two mega packs and two rare player 50k packs.

Mega pack 1 - Barzagli. Thought it was going to be Chiellini!

Mega Pack 2 - IF German CM (Eggesten?) and Leno

Rare Players Pack 1 - IF Pickford and Sokratis.

Rare Players Pack 2 - Ruud van Nistelrooy Prime!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Not bad because from the same rewards last week my best player was Toprak! Also my second icon of 19 after packing 87 Shearer a couple of weeks ago.

Dare I say, I'm loving it  :-\

I play it for fun and take it nowhere as seriously as I have previously. Just move onto the next game if I have a bad one. I've given up trying to analyse the whys and what's.

Weekend league is fine.

One thing they could do with the removal of the ko tournament is make drafts free. Obvs make the rewards lesser but gives a casual mode to play.

Another thing they have subtly snuk in, is with rivals and WL being the only modes online, they have made us have to play more games.  Fair enough spread over the week, but compared to 40 in the old WL, you need to play 2-3 times as that over the whole week if you want decent rewards.

The whole thing is a mess. The refs are a joke, the tackles are a joke, the gameplay worse than anything in the new gen era. They've taken out the low driven as the most effective way and now it is the finesse shot from the edge of the box. Same crap every game, people trying to get the angle to do it. Without big changes the game will be dead even quicker than last year. At first I was enjoying the game but it is getting worse by the day. It's almost as bad as last year now, if not worse already.
Another thing is the servers are getting worse and worse. Button delay, passes going off with no relation to direction aimed or button input. Add this to non stop high pressure tactics that make the AI into machines, and it is unplayable at times.
I've not touched Weekend League yet, but doubt it can be any worse than Division Rivals which is basically Weekday League and no other mode to play at all. Didn't think it was possible for them to mess up this any more than previously but they have. Somehow.

Yeah ... the impact/collisions/whatever-you-want-to-call-it is the worst thing about this game.

Sure, I get super-tilted early on ... my bad.

But, the amount of times the slightest of nudges means my player stumbles, gifting possession to my opponent, is ridiculous! Combine this with the times I get blatantly fouled - in the box or wherever - because maybe, just maybe his boot laces brushed the ball before half-killing my player, is driving my nuts.

I'm starting the dislike it more with every match I play. Started off decent fun, but now it is just getting horrible. And I haven't entered a weekend league yet. I suspect if I did, it would probably finish me off with this game. Not sure what has happened, if people just have learned the weaknesses in the match engine, if EA have tweaked things, but it's just not fun.

I am.optimistic. At least they didn't destro the game with the first patch. Sure the game have his bad moments but pace is not so dominant anymore. I pulled this nice pack today. Cannot complain

Just played a few games to get the OTW Italian guy through the weekly objectives. The game is getting worse every time I play it. Some of the goals I conceded beggared belief. There was one where I tackled the guy six times but he got it back everytime or just got it straight back with the tackled player and kept going. It is bordering on a joke how badly messed up manual defending is. Just seems that almost every goal involves a manual tackle by me taking a ludicrous bounce to the opponent whilst they just use the AI who make perfect tackles and perfect interceptions much much more often. I don't want to play like that. No way should it be more beneficial to not defend yourself. Game is a joke.

If it wasn't for this I'd be saying this is the best FUT in seven years, but EA want random bounce BS in the game for whatever reason sadly.
