    I still get it to work in SBs well over 50% of the time. Whether or not the keeper saves it or not is a different story.

    Only happens to me on Weekend SB. Weekday SB is fine.

    I've had to change them so many times that I think I could tell you every kit number for every player in Liga NOS off the top of my head.

    Not drunk. Weekend SBs definitely play one to two difficulties above whatever you choose. I'd love to hear EA's logic on this.

     

    EDIT: Does every match have to go to extra time?

    Does anyone know the exact date OTW are finished in packs? I read the 9th but that was just someones comment on a post. So not sure how accurate it is?

    I've also seen the 9th, but I thought it was on the game in one of the OTW promos sections, so I'd assume they're out tomorrow at 1800 GMT.

    SBs are DEFINITELY harder/more scripted over the weekend (when it starts refreshing every 8hrs). I was either really drunk at 1AM or the previous sentence is true. It's almost like I HAVE to lose one of the four games each refresh. During the week, it's 4-0 in games and I'm winning 5-0/6-0/6-1/etc. every time.

    I would still think you're gonna see late Sunday/Monday price drops with people selling from WL. You just might not see the increases today that we saw last year on Thursdays because there were no rewards from last weekend.

    Well, could it literally be "the weekend is harder" regardless of the difficulty level? Just went 4-0 in the current opponents (last night at 8PM ET to today at 7:59:59PM ET), all on Pro. I'm on PS4, and I won 2-1 (against redtube), 6-1 (against WANNABE FC), 4-0 (against Kimmy), and 3-0 (against Team17). I did find if I held the ball early on, just passed it around, and then scored first around the 20' mark that I was able to easily score again before the half, sometimes 2+ more. Dare I say "momentum?"

    This was nice. Just fired up FUT and started a game in Squad Battles, only to find out my controller settings had somehow changed to Alternate on defense. Doumbia was sent off 6mins in after I pressed O and slide tackled a guy from behind.

    The delay in my game is SO big, that I can't even produce a normal pass anymore. It takes litterally 2 seconds to pull a pass off, even when I'm pressing for tickie-tacka. 

     

    They talk about covering running lanes... ehm what? My players can hardly move, let alone they actually do something when I place them in a passing lane.

     

    This is by far the most unplayable FIFA I've EVER played in 20 years. And I'm not only talking about defending, but attacking is simply impossible for me. I can't sprint, my players fall down after each pass, it's like my settings are all on manual, except they're not.

    The delay is so bad on this game that I have a delay on the Transfer Market. Tongue
    But seriously, it's happened to me multiple times as well, even when I'm pressing O to tackle (because I've lost the ball) and all of a sudden I'm soaring it over the stands because the game has miraculously won me the ball back by the time it recognizes my pressed O.
    CPU through balls work 100% of the time. Every, and I mean EVERY, time I press the switch button to go to that defender (almost always the LB or RB), my guy freezes/slows down and I'm immediately a yard or two back from the guy now marauding down the wing with the ball. I never catch up with the LB/RB I just switched to, even if my guy is supposed to have more pace by the card stats. I have to take a CB out to cover and pray it doesn't leave me open for the easy pass into the box for a goal (BTW, this is at least 50% of the goals I concede against the CPU).
    I don't feel my through balls work even 25% of the time, and with the lobbed through ball it's hit or miss whether my guy gets knocked off the ball as soon as I get to it.

    Nope, not the game's fault. I just lost to the Mueller squad 3-2...on Semi Pro!!! I even got a red card, to boot! I've evidently forgotten how to play as well.

    Nope, not you. I was mauling Pro in the Squad Battles all week, consistently winning games 4-0/5-1/etc. I would even win World Class, but only at like a 50/50 clip. So I went to strictly Pro because I could guarantee myself ~1000pts towards the standings with each game. As of Saturday morning, Pro became closer to 60/40 for me, losing games 1-0, losing in penalties, etc. I can't figure it out. I haven't changed anything at all.

     

    I could go on a long rant about what I don't like about this year's gameplay, but who really gives a shit. Just give me consistent gameplay, EA. I'm sure I'm just "seeing things," but it seriously felt like Pro was scripted this weekend in Squad Battles.

    Jimenez is down right beastly. Just FYI.
