So I just used a squad fitness before starting the match didn’t notice until after taking my second shot first went in after 4mins 15mins in game second shot chance aguero was making his run but really slow and sluggish didn’t even shoot was more like a pass to the keeper on a no pressure shot
his stamina was only about a quarter full then noticed all my players was the same and reacting 2 seconds slow at everything
I don’t get if it’s a bug to try even the match out as I was winning so soon or a cheat the opponent used somehow
just wondering if anybody knows why this could happen so soon in the game after using a squad fitness pre game
I never let fitness drop below 80 and they’ve only ever got that tired in extra time matches I can’t understand what happened I quit by half time as I just couldn’t play
and hate quitting it’s very rare I’ve ever quit a game only when connection as been unplayable
Solved! Go to Solution.

Abnormal fitness depletion is what I just experienced!
Playing Squad Battles (so single player, never play online) and using the same tactics and player instructions I always have used, just now my midfielders, wingers and striker where nearly dead
I first noticed this when they could just not run and/or shoot good. I did not pay attention to the start of the game but I use two teams and alternate between them after every match so the fitness never gets bellow 94/95 and depletion is about -5 max and not for every mentioned player. During the match at that time I checked to see if I had my constant pressure dynamic tactics selected or had team pressure on, this was not the case for both. After the match I checked if I had selected the wrong team for the match, this also was not the case.
After the game ended I checked the fitness depletion of the game and it showed a -8 depletion for most of my midfielders and attackers as mentioned and the fitness bars on the team screen where all almost empty. Now here is the thing, when I was checking the teams on my squad tab after I left the Squad Battles screen the fitness bars did not show the almost depleted state for those same players!? Should this not be the case? It does show the amount of -8/-9 for those mentioned players. But even my defense showed a bigger depletion that I am used to see on them -5/-6. But the problem was the midfield and the attackers.
So you tell me.
I will try to have some screenshots for you if this happens again... FYI: before the last patch this never happened, even if I pushed the team to its limits they were always able to perform something.
By the way, I did not loose the match but it was very annoying experience.
Have a nice day.

I have added some screenshots. Note that screenshot #07 and #08 are a test, where I turned of player instruction from aggressive interceptions to default (those where on during the previous games mentioned here). This concerns only the Midfield & Attackers, so I think this is the logical cause nevertheless it did not use to have this kind of an impact showed here.
Screenshot #06: notice the depletion (recuperation) of the subs from the previous match I mentioned here.
Hope this helps.
