Hmm that was poorly worded. I'm tired of dark colored refs.

Getting a bit bored in The Journey. As soon as I get my player rating high enough I'm just waiting to end the game so I can see more story.

Yeah, probably won't give it another play through.

The Journey was pathetically short to be honest.

This game is full of bugs. I barely can find opponents on FUT or on season or in those 14 days cups. Sometimes just before the game when you practice on the pitch, it takes minutes to start the game, and when the game is loaded, drops you. And this is when I'm lucky. Because sometimes the game just freeze and i must go out of the FIFA.

I don't know what it is about FIFA but it's basically the only thing in my life that makes me genuinely angry to the point of ranting at the screen and nearly throwing controllers at walls.

The weekend league is currently threatening to ruin my sanity. Qualified first try with a shitty silver Dutch team and then currently going 2/8 due to everybody using ridiculously sweaty teams and being unbelievable try hards <grim>

Just hold L2, protect the ball and keep possession for as long as you can by passing it around the midfield. It will drive your opponent nuts and you can win 1-0 as he starts going in for crazy slide tackles.

Keeping possession's not the issue, I can do that fine. It's just as soon as I lose the ball, whether a blocked shot or whatever, they just ping it up field and their rapid striker is somehow in tonnes of space. I feel like they want you to play the game where you work chances with passing in the midfield but for some reason it just doesn't work.

It's just weird how there's such a massive difference between the qualifying cup which was piss easy and then the actual weekend league which is kicking my arse <laugh>

Try setting your defenders up much deeper in the tactics. Pressure really low so that they are deep, stop those throug balls.

I could - I live in East London though and most of my friends are a proper trek away. Mostly south London. It's a new build block too so most of my neighbours don't have internet yet either <grim>
