    Player select is a problem as well, most games fine. THE game EA need to shaft you we all know we get that game in the weekend league a player is running towards your defence you select your desired player but goes to a different player and he jolts forwards 5 yards, leave a gaping gap. 

     This one absolutely kills me. Lost a fair few goals to it.

    Mate, I've seen Nep complain about the pointlessness of a game because his players are being inhibited. They know about it. 

     

    You said "greater turning circle than a boat". That for me is the absolute certainty of the implemented bullshit. If people were just complaining about stray passes, well there is an argument to say that they just didn't point the stick in the correct direction. But the slow turning and slow movement is not something than can be affected by the player. The only thing a human player could do to affect slowness/heaviness is playing people at low levels of fitness and I've witnessed this shit in players on 99 fitness. If it was just me that felt the lead boots, I'd question myself or my copy of the disc (lol) but I've read hundreds of people saying the same.

    @NUFCJ89

    Yeah, I saw that mate. I'm with you. Today I'd just had it. I knew it was going to happen because I only needed 1 point from two games. I'd only lost once and won six, drawn one. So to suddenly lose two games. But like you say, it's not the losing, it's the manner of it. 

    I saw my final opponent was playing a 4321 with Bale and two other fast bastards up front and I knew he was going to sit deep and only use the front three to attack. I've been undone by this so many times that I've adapted tactics to deal with it. Generally my defence holds of a bit, I don't like to press too hard and in this case I knocked back to defensive. How is it then, that with a deep lying defence on defensive mentality, I should find them sitting on the halfway line when they've not been involved in the build up??? It gifted him the chance - his first chance - and I just put the pad down. I realised there was no point. I could have sweated my arse off but why bother? The game was giving him every opportunity. 

     

    I've had it my way too and I don't take much pleasure from knowing that my wins are being cheated.

    They won't do anything that changes the things that make you angry. Although, I can assure you that all the people who love this game because they benefit from things like shielding and using strong players will hate next year's and all those who hate this year's for those reason will love next year's. It's the cycle of FIFA. 18 will be the rise of the small technical David Silva type players. I guarantee. 

     

    As for buying it, I'm not going to say I won't because let's be real, its like crack to me. However, I will definitely buy PES as well. Let's see which comes out on top.

    I think I definitely need to try another game mode because I've just had enough of FUT but I do like playing FIFA, or rather football.

     

    The thing is, it's not the loss. Losses are not enjoyable but they are acceptable. It's the way it goes down. In both those games, the players were decent but not great. In the last game, I hit the post twice, had a free header just glide the bar, and put two one on ones just wide of the post, all inside the first twenty minutes and I knew that I was getting fucked. Throughout the match, any time my opponent and I clashed for a ball, it always fell his way; blocked shot - fell to him; saved shot - fell to him; loose tackle ... etc. When the goal came, my defence - even though I'd switch to defensive to cover his constant through balls - was sat on the halfway. There is no way in my tactical setup that they should have found themselves there. Bale broke and I couldn't catch him. 

     

    EA did an interview last week admitting that they code in random errors like failing to trap a ball (even though you did everything right). I guess the question is are these events truly random? It seems to me they happen when you're on the verge of something.

    Call me a whinging little bitch. I needed one point from two games to get promoted. I went from seamless gameplay to extreme button delay. In the last two games I hit the woodwork four times and had three one on one where the striker wouldn't shoot due to button delay. This game is a disgrace.

    When I comes to button delay it's either ea's doing as a handicap or your opponent is doing it using a glitch.  I'm becoming more convinced it's the latter as it happens part way through games n they clearly haven't got it.  

     I'd say it's EA. The most common times it happens are when I need a point or a win from three games and my players become unresponsive. I played a game today where my opponent scored two goals replica goals that you'd be lucky to score in fifty odd games. I've needed one point from two games and I knew this game would go against me. The entire match my players were sluggish, punished by delay and every loose ball ran to him. I'll probably get the point from the final game but it's EA trying to ramp up the 'drama'. 
    EA have already admitted that they put errors into the game, such as players 'randomly' failing to trap balls correctly - there is nothing you can do, the game is programmed to make you fuck up. EA have admitted this. It's "part of the fun of football" apparently. The other day this exact thing occurred against my opponent and I scored from it. Won the game by that single goal that came from the CPU forcing an error on my opponent.
    I honestly don't know why I still play the game.

    posted a message on How many games can you manage in one sitting?

    For me it's about 3, sometimes four if I'm pushing it. It's why I stay away from WL. No way I could handle so many games. The game is so sketchy with its inconsistent gameplay that when it's going well, I'll turn it off after two games before it turns to shit. And when it's going badly, I'll turn it off after two games to stop raging. 

     

    Off now to go and brutalise myself after a gruelling few games ...

    I just had the funniest game. I've raged so many times on here about BS happening to me and it's only fair I point out the same when it goes my way. First 45mins, I got dominated by my opponent. I may as well have handed over the plastic gloves and the lube. He had 10 shots and about 8 corners but his only goal came from a piece of bullshit where I tackled him and watched his Insta auto tackle straight back to play him through. Fair dues though, at the end of the 45 I hadn't had a single shot. 

     

    Second is more of the same, only I'd switched up my tactics. He continued his corners and his shots and finally I have a chance to break. Hit the ball to Hazard who plays a poor pass straight to his CB. The bullshit kicks in again and his CB, having controlled the ball perfectly, decides he's going to let it roll to my striker for a one on one. Lol. My first shot. 1-1. My GK makes some outstanding saves and then comes the 87th min. I play a ball into the box which is too far for the player I was controlling. S'alright though, as the AI intervenes and slots it home himself. The AI scored the winner for me. Lol. 

     

    At the end, I'd had 2 shots and he'd had 20. 

     Were you playing me by any chance lol. I have so much of this i usually have 20 shots on target to my opponents 1 and narrowly win 2-1. This game with the adaptive difficulty shit that goes on is absolute bollocks. When you are dominating you just know (even if your opponent is shit) that at some point he will get a break away and if he manages to get a shot away then he will score, no ifs, no buts, it's a goal guaranteed...
     Haha. The game is just bollocks. Had a good run of everything going for me and now I'm back to delay and having players that can't turn or shoot

    I just dont get why players cant chest the ball without it flying 20 yards away from them as if there's a trampoline on their chest

     This. Also, you notice how players can't head balls clear from corners, they can only head it out for another corner.

    "There is an error built in for trapping balls. It can happen at anytime. That's part of the beauty of football." If you can't smell the bullshit here, you never will. Players don't fail to trap a ball because the universe spews up random events. They fail a trap or a tackle or a shot or whatever because they fucked it up. There is nothing IRL that dictates mistakes other than a player's own abilities in a given circumstance. This shows how EA take away your abilities at times and replace with their own error strewn code. It's exactly what video games should not be doing and they celebrate it. Says everything.
