I am writing this message to inquire about the gameplay on Online mode on FIFA14 on PS3 (slim).
Also in FIFA13, it seems that nothing has changed in FIFA14!
I have selected a team, made all the appropriate management changes (including Custom formations and Tactics) and all the things etc etc.
When I play online matches (which by the way is on matchmaking settings custom to find similar team strength etc etc), ALWAYS, and I mean ALWAYS the opponent's player are better!! They respond faster, RUN faster, AND EVEN their AI players correspond to the play quicker and more accurate!
I would like to ask anyone who has an ANSWER to WHY this is happening!
Is it a new feature of FIFA to always play as a lesser side!!?
How I can make my players GO AS FAST AS THE OPPONENT'S? (and believe me I am not new to the game and I also have players in my team with high speed and acceleration numbers, and STILL run slower than opponent's players!!)
Is there a problem with the GAME itself (bags, etc) ?
I am looking forward to hearing a proper answer (not something that need to find and speak to a veteran player!)
To the players that have same issues like mine, hope that we will find the answer at the end .... and games online will become more fair ....
Solved! Go to Solution.
i started having this problem but the game has gone EXTREMELY weird for me. the gameplay isn't what it was a couple of days ago and it's slowed down considerably. my 84-94 rated players all act like bronze players and can't pass, control the ball, turn etc. but i can still beat the computer on professional as the computer seems to have slowed down too. i can maintain possession with slow, short passing but my players can't hit a barn door... which contrasts with my online opponents. none of my opponents online seem to use high pressure anymore either :/ it's like i'm playing a completely different type of player with a different game engine.
the game is dead for me.
I've had this problem loads and it's very frustrating. Especially on Ultimate Team this is worse! Scripting and handicap make it impossible to have a fun, enjoyable match! They have actually done the impossible and made this game only slightly better than FIFA 13 but have not even got close to making the game fun like it was on FIFA 12 where I never even found any problems like this simply because there was no Seasons. The AI is too smart when it comes to career mode or offline matches and just follow you exactly in every single way, know where you are going, when you are just about to tackle, their keeper saves almost everything whereas yours saves only a few simple shots but none of the crosses or shots into corners, professional is ridiculous and their passes are always on target and interceptions are stupidly good meaning it's impossible to win the ball! FUT is the worst though because of how bad the defence and the lack of control you actually have over players. I enjoy Ultimate Teams aspects but Chemistry ruins it along with Headers always going in Crosses being 100% accurate and the defenders always drifting out of position to the left/right and leaving a huge gap open for the oponent to score. Goalkeepers on FUT are the worst since FIFA 13 and that's saying something and with the referees not understanding how to actually make the right calls it frustrates me and plenty others and I'm sure of that especially when they make terrible calls that would get them sacked in real life.
Sort this EA before you make the next FIFA worse!!! If another company comes along with another Ultimate Team where you can make a dream team with no chemistry or in-game bull then I'm leaving FIFA forever!
What the hell is going on with Ultimate Team? At first movement was fine, but for the last two weeks online movement is so awful and unresponsive. If I'm on the ball and a defender comes at me, I used to be able to move the player out of the way fluidly either via dribble or skill. Now it's very rigid and the player either stands or moves in a completely unpredicatble way. Even worse, my opponent doesn't seem to have the same problem. Fix it.
I agree, it's as if EA are trying to say it takes a long time to move left or right on the ball, the time it takes to turn around or move left or right causes you to lose possession very easily and the refs just don't know how to make a good call! You should be able to make fast, fluid movements like you can IRL and on previous FIFA's but the first touch shouldn't be as bad as it is!
We should make a petition and try and gain enough signatures to force EA to change the game!

Finally! Someone who has the same issue!!!
This problem has plagued my game since the end of FIFA 12 believe it or not, ( I know this is going to sound bull**bleep** but hopefully if youre reading this post you'll realise how frustrating this problem has been for me ) I had a record on FIFA 12 of about 850 - 80 online on UT so an above average player and towards the end of the game I was noticing the players I had were being caught by much slower players, far less responsive, weak inaccurate passes, missing sitters ( open net sweaty goal pass fall over ball was a personal favourite) however due to the fact it was the end of the game's cycle I was tired of the game so I left it. Roll on FIFA 13 this time I had roughly a week of smooth play and then the game once again had this issue, where the responsiveness of the players was obviously different to every other player I was up against, so..... I thought it was an issue on my end as it had been the same issue on both games, bought a new controller, nope, bought a new fifa 13, nope, all settings in game changed, nope. With FIFA 14 on X360 had same issue as usual week of quick, fluid play then it seems like a switch turns and everything goes sloppy again, so I thought maybe its a problem with my X360 ? FIFA 14 with PS4 ? Nope still **bleep** but at least I can record how bad this **bleep** is for me. Sorry for the mad rambling as this is 3 years of the problem you're all having now and as you might understand its really frustrating when you know there's not much you can do :/. So If anyone has a way to resolve this issue please post haha and for anyone thinking I'm bitching cos ive got bad ? I still win 70-80% of games but it aint fun having to anticipate every touch been 50 yards, Cheers and much love
Same. Just got off Fifa 14 and dont plan to ever bet back on it. I started noticing it on pro clubs on Fifa 12. After I stopped playing for a while I noticed it went away though. Thinking it was just a fluke, I bought Fifa 13 first day and had fun with it for like a week before the same problem began happening again. i chatted with the EA customer support but couldnt come up with anything. Bought Fifa 14 on the XB1 and now the same thing is happening..we cannot keep quiet about this anymore EA you dont have to reply to this, just quietly fix this and we will be more than thankful. Thank You.
