Its like trying to become a professional darts or snooker player or something but then saying, well I havent got time to practice much so can you just make the game really easy so I can beat the likes of Phil taylor and ronnie o'sullivan!!!
I'm not complaining that the game is harder. But you can also understand that, for those of us who only get to play for an hour or two a fortnight, it's not particularly enjoyable that those hours are spent getting dicked by 12 year olds who've nothing better to do than play Fifa all day.
I'm not saying they should 'dumb down' the game, just observing that they'll probably lose quite a few casual players (which they probably couldn't care less about, as casual players don't fill EA's pockets with daddy's cash which they've spent on packs).
I'm in the same boat as you. I'm a man in his late 30's who's grown up with football games for most of his life and I've never played such an unenjoyable footie game. At least with FIFA 15 it was mildly enjoyable getting dicked. Pity cos the Ultimate team side of it and the presentation is excellent.
I'm considering buying PES, the names of players aren't right but at least it'll not make me want to kick the TV in.
Same here, probably get an hour or two a week online, never had 15 but got 16 in the Black Friday sales and I can't win an ultimate team game for the life of me.

Im on one win one loss one draw every three games at the minute this fifa is the most unforgiving to the casual gamer my suggestion is play a fair few of the drills offline and perhaps start a career on a difficulty higher than you normally would. Also formations you perhaps wouldnt normally try i use 3 at the back quite often now as i was finding my full backs infront of my wingers unless i played ultra defensive. At least the dodgy penalties are due to be patched this week Ps im 37 work shifts full time and understand the frustration of the older gamer against the youngsters as i have a two boys 13 and 11 who pretty much spank me on most games now except for fifa if anyone fancies a game im on xbox one mattador78 happy gaming
