    That's hilarious! Can't say I've had that happen, but i've had plenty of the types that use all available pauses when your winning, take forever to take corners or goal kicks etc. I just do the same back to them. They don't seem to realise I'm just happy to have the win and couldn't care how long it takes.

    I just assume the person i am playing against is a 5 year old. It works for big soccer posters too.

    I've had the same glitch where I try to sell players and it won't let me. Don't know any solution. Had Mario Gotze and Neymar ask for transfers one window after buying them.

    This happened when I was playing with Malaga the season after I had just purchased Lucas' contract off of loan. That was just silly and we had just made the Champions League too. Real Madrid softened the blow by purchasing him off of me for 54 million which I turned around and used to buy Ganso and get Neymar on loan.

    It's an absolute joke that Ukraine aren't licensed. They're a host nation!

    I found that there is some code that makes that pop up about two weeks before the transfer demand. I used the auto save to go back three weeks and poof no transfer request. I also had a career with Marseilles and Ayew started getting these reports in the papers about being unsettled. I don't know if it helped by in every single press window I praised Ayew for months and by the winter transfer window he said he wanted to stay.

    After the initial growing pains and my difficult admission that I couldn't hack it at the legendary level I did realize this was a great game. Took a lot to put it down.

    Well,... there's just no going back to FIFA today.

    I'm playing in my second season with Roma and it was a match at Parma right before our Champions League match so I had a team with mostly my B team which is a good mix of young upper 70s guys and older mid 70s players. So I win 4-1. One of my key younger players registers a goal and an assist. One of my older key reserves also gets a goal and an assist. One of the few starters I had in the match got an early goal and I was able to take him off after 45 minutes. And one of my older strikers who I had just signed to be a holding type striker scored on a sweet header off a corner. Two of those goals I was definitely looking to record bc they came off of very nice combinations of plays and skill moves.

    One thing that I've noticed is that, in career mode, when a player gets going in either goals or assists that tends to run the trend for at least that half of the season. They tend to make runs more often from then on and don't stand around as much as players who haven't done anything. Then the next season starts and they all move like zombies again. So it's nice to get all of these guys going early.

    So after the game I go to record the two goals that I liked and I choose the wrong one and back out. So you know how between menus you listen to music and while it's loading the menu it shows you a shot of the empty practice pitch and the houses and such. Well I'm looking at this screen and listening to music for about 5 minutes when I realize that this f**king game just locked up.

    I damn near threw the whole XBox through the window.

    Let's all just go back to FIFA98. That game was awesome.

    Euros 2012 has so many glitches it's ridiculous. I have gotten to the final of the tournament on live twice now only to have my game freeze when I try to make a sub. I lose the game because it says I quit. All those games I played for nothing. It also frustrates me how little effort is put into the teams in the actual Euros. Czech for instance has a number of players missing that are in the 23 called into the Euros. There are also some players that weren't called in who are in the roster. The ratings are also so low for certain players. This game is a ripoff and so flawed.

    I'm about to throw the disc like a frisbee.

    2 seperate times. One, I'm playing as wolves against West Brom in my 2nd season (i took the FA cup and have a ridic amount of money and am turning the team over - kinda like peter nowak for phila union... but anyway). I go up 2-0 by half time, and then notch a third goal by the 56th minute to make it 3-0. West brom then gets a goal in the 75th minute, 81st minute, 85th minute, and 90th minute. I'm renting a room in my friends house, and that's all that prevented me from throwing my controller. The other time i was up 2-0 and gave up 2 goals in the last 5 minutes of play (equivalent to 1 minute real time) - and then a stoppage time goal.

    I don't get why all of a sudden you start to try to pass the ball, and it give weak passes or sends the ball in the completely wrong direction to a waiting opponent - or when you get the pass you want suddenly their defender gets a huge burst of speed, sends the ball for a counterattack, and suddenly you're going what the ********. Changing players is becoming a bitch too - half the time signaling to be the closest player ends up with me controlling a forward when i'm trying to defend.

    Again, lucky i'm renting a place our i'd have thrown the controller into the wall.

    lol, aim for the floor. I've had to replace more than one controller before for this kind of nonsense. I think EA sports must have this as part of their deal with Microsoft and Sony, since all their games seem specifically designed to piss you off at times.

    Not saying the game is perfect but...
    - Multiple one-touch passing, especially if going against the direction of the player's weight, will play a soft ball
    - You can make passing manual if you like. I did it for through balls and it works wonders.
    - Holding L2/LT helps control the ball when pressured quickly.
    - Changing players with the right joystick works better for me. More of an accurate change. But I hardly change defenders ever. If they're countering I just stick with my CDM and drop him. The computer is a better 1-on-1 defender than I am and it helps with numbers in the box.

    What I also love about FIFA is the collision engine. You never know what is going to happen, plus some situations are absolutely hilarious. Last night two players collided on the pitch and couldn't get up. Another player crashed into them, full speed, stood up and jump on them (sort of stomping on them with full force, he would get a lifetime ban in real life). Then the three of them couldn't get up. Just a pile of bodies. Gotta love FIFA. Pity I couldn't save it due to some error with the servers.

    I change that up. I realize that, but even when holding the ball and in motion they are almost always off balance - even when standing still.
    It's half and half, and i generally don't have a problem during game. It's at key moments, where the other team needs a break or i'm about to go on a huge counterattack. I press up diagonal pass, and it goes straight down sometimes. Never when i'm just passing around tactically.
    I do that, and then my player goes idiotic and when moving/shielding still kicks the ball slightly too far.
    I live by the right joystick switch. This has only happened recently so i might want to check if the stick is ... sticking... but i'm trying to stifle a counterattack and all of a sudden instead of switching to the 2nd defender (to close in) i switch to the far midfielder or striker and the user icon is out of my focus of vision.

    I just played a game where i made a legal tackle, but both players just went down and rolled... literally. the ball slowly rolled away from them, and the funnier part is because they were the two closest players on both teams, the AI didn't move ANYONE towards the ball.

    Aim for the floor is bad. I needed to patch a hole in my last apartment because of aiming for the floor - the thing skips like a maniac. Also ended up doing the same thing in the new place, but again, it's not my place.

    And i'm on my 3rd controller.

    Haha, this is perfect. I hope they don't improve the collision engine so that I can enjoy such situations in the next FIFA.

    My fifa game keeps freezing. Takes anywhere from 3-5 times of restarting my fifa just to get the game to run then when I try to play the Euros it freezes about 50% of the time before the game starts. Really pissing me off a lot.

    Don't through the controller. Crush it in your hands.

    Hmmm. Well you seem to know the game pretty well. Who do you play with? Because I see these problems too but not as near as bad as you, by the sound of it.

    My concrete floors give the controller a very satisfying crunch when I elect to destroy it.

    Luckily that hasn't happened in awhile. Cause I know the game's rigged so I just expect the last minute winner against me when playing on World Class. The other team will be doing nothing offensively all game, then the minute I take a lead or equalize, they're magically behind my defense on the very next play crossing to a covered forward who easily nods home.
