At what point does playing the GAME become bad sportsmanship?

This is not a dig at anyone in particular as I get fed up with this whether I am playing league games or not. It's something that has totally ruined what is a fantastic game for me. I'm talk g about the amazingly wonderful ability to concede a goal, and then from kick off simply run one back into your opponents goal.

I expect it from random people, but not from league players. Unfortunately it happens though. Either way, surely this should be considered bad sportsmanship. I dont see how this is much different from the good old trick of watching replays causing your opponent to pass out a goal kick cos they didn't want to watch a replay.

Another thing that seems to get done is blocking the keeper from kicking the ball when he is holding it.

I used to play I the RLLMUK league many years ago when pro evo was used, and these things didn't happen so why do people do it now? Has half the league been replaced by chavy boys who with their can of beer and a roll up will do anything for a win rather than simply enjoying a good game of football?

I have made my point and my rant is over. All I have left to say is these thi gs above have totally ruined both the game and the league for me, and as such I will be stopping both.

Admins please remove me from league 2 etc. thanks

we are 3/4 of the way through the season! wheres the good sportsmanship in backing out of the league at this point??

i presume the " i conceded straight after i scored" was a dig at me as i did that to you, (well 2 minutes after) all i can say at that is defend better, what you want people to do after you score?? pass it back to the defence and pass it round for a bit,

As far as standing in front of the keeper or scoring from a keepers pass out, now thats a cunts trick and i always kick the ball out of play if i do it, and ive always experience the same with anyone ive played on this site

But i seriously think you need to re consider asking to be removed from the season after you have been going on about sportsmanship and now with 3 fixtures left you want to drop out??

Tommy, yes u did do it. The problem with it is u can't defend it properly. Considering our different points and positions in the league I think my defending g against u was good. But in this situation no matter what u do u just can't stop it every time. I had 4 players round your guy at one point but he still got through.

Saying simply defend better is a cop out when the game is designed to keep the masses happy. They designed in the last minute goal feature that happens most games and they designed I. The stupid ability to run it in after conceding.

Quick replies happen in football. But it's possible to do it every time.

I'll probably be told to do it myself and stop complaining but in my eyes thats just a waste of time. It's not football

you did defend really well in both games, and i was lucky when the goal went in after yours but i tried it everytime you scored and only succeeded once,

winds me up when people want to drop out the league (good job i aint in the prem ha)

like you said given my position im not going to not score just after you cos you dont like it? what would you prefer to people to do when you score, just not do anything for 20 minutes?/ it just doesnt make sense that part of what your saying!

the part about people intercepting a goal kick pass out or a blocked kick out and then scoring is wrong imo but i didnt think people did that on here,

It's not solely aimed at you tommy. Everyone I've played does it. It just winds me up that it's programmed into the game to such an extent that you can basically run it in. Maybe I just have the wrong attitude to playing FIFA cos I've never once tried it, and I've never once tried all the fancy dribbling that's ruined the game too. I just wanna play football play 7 minutes of highlight reels.

As for the other bits, I've had it happen once in this season

This.

S22 can you explain a bit more in detail what you mean by some of those things you've said?

Of course.....

In short the ability to run a goal after conceding is programmed into the game. I just don't think it should be a feature exploited by members of a league which is otherwise fantastic to be part of. I'll be honest and admit the the reason I ended up posting was my game with tommy. Although not aimed directly at him, the run in goal came after a goal that I had spent about 10 minutes of game time working up from the back leading to a really nice move up front.

Generally the goal kick and keeper kick thing aren't an issue but have had one of these happen once this season

I have no idea what you are talking about s22.

What is this running the ball in thing that I appear to have missed?

Are you saying that from kick off the conceding team gets some sort of boost stat to make the kick off taker very difficult to tackle? If so, I have never noticed it (and I concede alot!)

I still don't know what you still mean.

Do you mean that from kick-off, a team can use their forwards to one-two the ball all the way up to the oppositions goal (past their midfield, because they tend to run upfield a bit at kick-off)?

If so I can see that it's annoying (and I've faced it a few times against people who know what they're doing) I don't really see it as an exploit, more poor defending. They still have to breach your entire back 4, for starters. Also if you get control of your CDM in time with the right-stick and get him to intercept the ball it is preventable.

No what im saying is after you have scored u lose a slight amount of control over your players compared to any other time in the game. It's how the game is made.

11 did it also.

It's wound me up sinse day one, and it's not purely cos of the league. Its more playing randomers really but I've just had enough of the game. I played a game earlier to try and put my mind at rest but got so wound up with it I went straight up game and chopped it in for battlefield 3.

So in a moment of rashness I now have no option but to pull out of the league anyway.

My apologies to those in league 2. I just couldn't stand the game anymore.

Just want to clarify... Tommy scored a goal direct from kick-off so S22 has quit the league??!

Mate, I know conceding against Tommy must be hard to take but maybe a slight overreaction :)

This is the first time I have heard this kind of thing complained about in any version of FIFA. If somoene scores against me from kick-off I put it down to me not defending properly. Disappointed to see you drop out given how much has been played, not fair on the guys that have put so much in with the games, match reports, etc.

Lol that's not quite why. I had 2 awesome games with tommy.

My beef is with the game not tommy. Ea have previously said these features are built into the game in order to create excitement. If I can find the link I'll post it. I just think that if a team loses concentration after scoring a goal, as happens in real life, that it should be because I lost concentration and not because my players become less responsive. I guess it's a feature of realism but it shouldn't be dictated by the game, but by the human player.

As said, it's wound me up for a long time, and yes with 3 fixtures to go its a lame time to pull out for which I apologise, but if I cant stand playing the game to the point where I get no practice and therefore gift point away, then that's also not fair on those I have already played and taken points from.

Football games are usually the last I get rid of. Especially when it's the current version.

I've read all of your posts sir and I still have no idea what you are referring to.

However, there's plenty of legacy "cheap" stuff in the game. Learn to deal with it until EA balance things better.

That's my whole point. I've had enough. I don't wanna deal with it anymore

Bad sportsmanship? playing 7 fixtures then qutting with 3 left springs to mind, especially when combined with the comman excuse of frustrated at the game/getting beat, and the not so common opponent scoring from kickoff.

The prem this season might have made me a little angry towards quitters :), but if your only reason for leaving with so few fixtures left is not wanting to play the game anymore, thats probably worse than bad sportsmanship in game.

We all have different views on things and clearly my view is the minority here. But I stand by it. I'm not quitting because I lost a couple of games. There are points in the game which I feel shouldn't be used when playing in something like this league. I chose not to use them, because quite frankly to me it feels like cheating. The same goes for the excessive dribbling in the game. It's football. What u see on FIFA does not in any way resemble what u see on the terrace.

I totally understand people's comment that I'm the one being a bad sport here, but at the same time, if I had lost points to someone who no longer put in practice time and therefore gave points away to others around me, I'd be pretty damn pissed off. So how can I win in this situation. I'm not going to play it outside of league games so either way it seems I piss someone off.

At least I'm being honest here. Maybe I should have made up some bollox about not having time like others have. Everyone knows the commitment it requires in time.
