    8hours in a weekend! See that's too much for me man, I got 2 jobs a wife and 3 kids. I'd love 8hrs to myself let alone playing fut. I think my wife would literally rips my nuts off lol!

     Yeah, I mean 6 minute halves. 12 minute games (assuming it goes by exactly as planned very few stoppages and no extra time) if you play all 40 you've literally just wasted 8 hours of your weekend.

    obviously you can space it out to like 2 and a half hours (2.6 to be exact) over the 3 days but that's still a lot of time.
    ---
    I don't have a lot of room to talk because back in my hardcore COD days it wasn't uncommon to drop a 4-6 hour session (high/school college)
    Now that i'm older (26) I really can't be asked to do that for most games. Great story game/RPG something along those lines I'll gladly play for that long. But Sports Games/Shooters it's short sessions.
    The only thing COD has taught me especially being a pretty good player is that when you finally have a bad game it's best to call it quits on that one because you'll be annoyed and it'll snowball. It's the same for FIFA in reality.

    But with FUT Champs people don't really have that option because they NEED to get to a certain win # to get the rank they want, and chances are you aren't going to 18 for 18 right off the bat and you're probably going to need to play at least 30 of those games so you're still looking at 5-6 hours of your weekend.

    It's just not worth it.
     Spot on mate, the whole reason I play fifa is so I can play 1 match before work or 1 whilst the kids are down for their naps. I enjoy other games but can't commit the time needed to get into them fully.
    That's why I've enjoyed the sbc's this year. It give me a chance to get packs (I don't waste my coins on them and I'd bite my toe off before I paid for fifa points!). To a part timer like me the special cards are unattainable but this yr I have a few due to the sbc's.
    Have you packed anything decent in your futchamps rewards?
     Based on that response do you think i've spent a single minute playing fut champs Tongue

    I've packed 3 decent cards from normal packs all year (Neymar/Bale/Di Maria)

    They are just going to continue to tell the vast majority of people to keep trying.

    If they haven't unbanned it by now, your account is done.
    I can't imagine the staffing for account bans is extremely high and as soon as large amount of people started claiming innocence it pretty much screwed everyone because EA is in now way going to take the time to unban a large majority of accounts. Most of which are more than likely rightfully banned just to make a handfull of innocent players happy.

    Sacrifice the joy of a few to punish a much larger group of actual people breaking TOS.

    There's a few people in this thread need to calm down because their reactions are childish. That's your warning.
    ---

    2nd off, I'm going suggest Friday's seem to be bit easier for most people
    It's still a weekday people still had class/work to deal with during the day so the amount of people who are on at any given time in your region are going to vary and potentially benefit you.

    Saturday/Sunday you're going to get far more people on and far more people going full try hard, servers are going to struggle more and it's going to be all around more frustrating and difficult.


    Shit happens, but it goes both ways. Your mentality is the biggest thing. The person you're playing has no idea you're on a losing streak or you just lost in the 90th minute to a deflection goal off a defender. He's clueless meanwhile you're taking that anger into the next game and it's going to cost you.

    You also don't know what they've done and it could be the same. People need to sort themselves out. It's a video game no need to spazz out over it.

    I've been playing the WL for like 5 or 6 consecutive weekends (autoqualification from ending Gold 3 or better every weekend). First and last time I complete a full month, or even enter the WL.

     

    Feels amazing when you're on a winning streak, but having concrete goals to reach (the 18 wins or beyond) and going through 40 games is soooo stressful believe me. This afternoon I went through like a 7 losses streak. It killed me really. Finally reached the 18 wins but I'm happy it's over now.

     

    During the week I play a few seasons and it's way more fun and calm I swear. I even play better in there I guess.

    I obviously enjoy playing this crap EA game Wink but the WL is too competitive and too long to complete...

     You mean you don't like devoting potentially 8 full hours to a game mode that's sweaty/try hardy and usually annoying to play?

    I'm shocked

    Injuries are incredibly hit or miss in this game.

    Early in the game they happened on the all time and it was obnoxious as you were forced to take them off.
    Now they happen and it's meaningless to the actual run of play,and sometimes make no sense.

    I'll have players who many have said fall down and are holding their shoulder or arm but are more than capable of continuing
    Then you have players who pull up with what looks like a hamstring injury, struggle for the animation duration and then are capable of playing the rest of the game no problem.

    I also love when a player is on full fitness and ends up pulling a hamstring within 10mins, we also don't know what effects these injuries have on players.
    Because sometimes they mention he's injured but he doesn't get the cross next to his name, other times there's 0 mention and they have the cross next to their name.
    ---
    I understand why it affects multiple games because "realism" but you can be realistic in one sense then blow it out of the water during the game.

    Oh man.

     I mean results like this typically gets a manager sacked.
    They are the easiest problem to deal with as there is no transfer window for a manager sacking, players are bit more difficult to deal with and when in reality THEIR form is the reason a team is struggling they aren't going to get too much immediate blame.
    You can't always blame the manager at least in my opinion because he only has so much input during the game, the players are the ones on the pitch and seeing everything they play out, they SHOULD be able to make adjustments on their own and at half time the manager can say "ok we need to do this and this" and the players need to go out there and do it while be able to adjust on the fly. It's not as if He was sitting there going "Fuck it,idk good luck"

    It's just that team isn't overly talented.
    I saw in the comments on ESPN people going at Wenger, when in reality you don't really know what ownership wants from him.
    If it's anything like the other teams he owns it's fuck all. All of his others teams are pretty poor but as there's no relegation in the other leagues he's making profit. I'd almost guarantee the game plan for Arsenal is "Qualify for Champions league do well in the cup games" Anything else is a bonus to ownership and Wenger is a pretty damn good at being consistent. He changed English football once and he's tried to stick with that formula ever since and it hasn't worked in the sense of titles but it's good enough and the teams good enough to continue and get them qualification.

    Hell I don't even think it's wenger who doesn't overpay for a player, It's ownership telling him not to so he's just beating their drum to agree.

    I don't think there's a fair comparison,but I do think LC fans may have gotten spoiled or expect the same sort of quality (maybe not league title) but mid table and higher when in reality that's not who they are,never have been, and probably if they get relegated...it may not a be pretty next few years for them.

    The only thing I'm curious as.

    Most people who complain (and i'm by no means calling anyone out this strictly a general statement)
    Who get banned, cry wolf.

    "I was only trading normally, I was only reading the market and bought a bunch of players who were went up in price and scored me massive profit"

    Various statements like that, and in most cases they claim that EA has wrongfully banned them and demand to be unbanned. I'm not saying EA couldn't wrongfully ban people they are humans after all

    -Although this is more likely a system set in place to monitor accounts and when certain oddities show up they get sent a red flag, then someone physically checks the account.
    My theory is the system in place has every card in it with the Lowest and Highest possible BIN prices on them, they also are WELL aware of the market. So if tons and tons and tons of bronze players are popping off from an account at 10k, it's going to get noticed.
    If 1-2 bronze cards go at 10k, It may slip through the cracks because it's a super tiny amount of coins.

    Now of course with SBCs this system could easily be skewed because there are plenty of Silver and even bronze players that are Legit selling for near their max price which creates a cluster fuck.

    But for everyone who's claiming they were wrongfully banned hundreds and hundreds more weren't banned while seemingly doing the same thing, and the excuse of "it's because YTers and Streamers are allowed to get away with things" Which is half true....but they are literally 1-2% of this community so that's not a fair statement at all.

    So i'm going to assume a vast majority of people who got banned are leaving out vital details in their stories and were doing more then just "simple trading and buying of soon to be expensive cards and getting the market right"

    I'm sure ea has correctly banned people and somehow been talked into opening their accounts back up.

    They also typically don't go straight to the "banning of the entire account" tactic. They will usually wipe the club (Coins/Cards or just one of the two) and then say if it happens again then it's done.
    That seems to be the standard OS.

    The only exceptions would be legit coin sellers accounts or bot accounts.
    ----

    Again not accusing anyone here, but I can't imagine they happened to skip their normal operating procedure and just mass ban a large group of people.wrongly and then refuse to unban all of them.

    Hell they made a huge mistake for OTW and repaid everyone who opened packs up during that time so they know when they make a mistake.

     Regardless even if this was true!!! Defiantly not in my son's case. Why don't they just come out and tell us???? Would you really think people with a genuine grievance  would go through the hassle?? Like life innocent people get wrongly accused all the time doesn't mean you have to accept it!!!  EA simply don't have the man power or inclination to carry out indivual case reviews i don't think, especially when a auto system like this flags so much.
     
     I agree. However there are less genuine people when it comes to bans.

    In every game I've ever dealt with online whether it's sports games or shooters.

    Every so often innocent people get banned and it does typically get resolved.

    But even on these forums alone there's been far more people claiming their innocence and refusing to give any details about their ban and just saying "I DIDNT DO ANYTHING WRONG"

    Hell in COD people accuse others of banning constantly. Usually if you're better then someone who THINKs they are great player, You end up reported and IW/3Arc/Sledgehammer review the gameplay to see if anything is weird it's why i've never had an issue when someone has threatened me with reporting me for "hacking"
    --

    Again i'm by no means saying your kid or even the others on the forums here are guilty, i'm just saying there's probably a good chance there more guilty parties that were banned and are trying to slip through the cracks because of accidental banning of innocent players.

    Butland needs to be fixed. Sick of seeing him in goals and a sweaty Premier League front 3.

    I don't know how these people enjoy playing the same shit all the time.

    I get bored with my team and change it nearly every week.

    I think I enjoy trading and building squads more than playing this year.

     I think when it comes to W/L most playes have the coinage to actually rotate teams (and are forced to with some of the stipulations in play on any given weekend)

    But for the majority of the community who are only casual players and only really play seasons. They've learned enough to know the OP players(butland/Bailly etc) and they are going to stick with them simply because they don't have the time to spend playing all the time to rack of coins or trade.

    I usually when i actually care to play UT for a decent amount of time. Build 1 Main team who I use 90% of the time and then if I have the coins I'll build a second team which has some different players usually my favorite IRL players and try to fit them into a similar team because it's what I'm used to.

    When you make a game mode not overly accessible unless you want to give up a lot of time or money people aren't going to rotate teams.
    ----
    As for Dembele I think a lot of players "greatness" in this game is subjective for a lot of people. There are obviously broken players but You can find players who aren't common but for some reason you just get on with really well while the popular players don't fit your style.

    From what I understand with Dembele, He's hit or miss.

    He's a very well rounded card that can attack or defend well enough to hold his own but it seems like trying to get him to do both make causes issues.

    In terms of IG Ratings his SBC Cards highest rating is as a CAM(83) CDM is 82. Then basically every possible attacking position is 80-81
    So a VERY well rounded card Stamina is 84 which is solid

    His defense imo being in the high 70s isn't overly impressive considering you have a lot of CDM and even some CMs with better defending then what he has (assuming we discount Chem styles and if they actually boost a player or not)

    Hell there are 42 CDM/CMS with better defending them in the prem.
    but only 8 with better physical.
    30+ more with better passing.

    Basically if he works for you great, but he's almost too rounded for his own good and you need to decide exactly what role you want him to play in your team instead of if he's going to play a multi purpose role because then you don't get the best out of him when you're expecting him to do attack/defense equally as effective.
