  1. couple of issues with fifa 22 seasons mode at the moment , its full of added accounts at the minute all or most are division one 21 players using created false accounts to practice on , the game thinks they are new to fifa so matches them with lower ranked players ie, division 8,9 , which is where average players start, so they have these amazing win streaks then they go back to their real account usually one of their two friends, Xbox enforcement clearly states report fraudulent /modified accounts, ive reported loads , all of them are still playing, xbox and ea do not care one bit about it, why ? because FUT mode brings in million for them, seasons , zero. so FUT , CHEATS , GET AWAY WITH It. so pleased its the last one, too tight to pay the rights , no more fifa , its gonna be called eaplay, watch how badly it does. ps, also career mode might as well just not exist , and final comment, gylifi siggurdson is currently in hiding and has been since early this year over allegations of touching kids , yet his character is still on the game. shows you exactly their standards in morals is zero.

  2. I just knew about the Seasons mode today..and I enjoyed the mode so far because I always play FUT and its getting more and more ridiculous..but what will happen to the Seasons Mode once Fifa 22 has launch?? All i know the server for FUT Weekemd League will shutdown next week..

    1. My guess is that the guy running the updates is a psg fan cause how did they add Messi so quickly. Man united we don’t even have Sancho let alone Ronaldo

  3. I don’t know why there’s no reward for Online Seasons players of this game.
    At least, publishing them would be a great honor to them will in some way increase the consumer base. Thank you #easports #fifa21 #fifplay

  4. BIG fu****g con! Overloaded servers, computer generated players! Loads of computer generated players! Loads! Feels like a bingo game! Appalling! Disgusting marketing strategy! You’ll never win on the lower divisions unless the A.I boot allows it! Waste of time and money!

  5. How the hell do you cancel a cup match? Accidentally selected international womens tourny, and now I can find a match. So I can switch and am stuck being unable to play one. Hella stupid

  6. Anybody knows how many away games you have to play before getting to play a single home game? Because I barely get to play at home almost always playing away games. Cheers.

  7. The top 100 leaderboard dont make sense at all. Theres players up there with awful records with more loses than wins it just dont make sense to me

    1. But it does make sense. As top one leaderboard does not mean a number of wins has to overtake a number of loses. It depends on number of wins prior to other players below. If PlayerTop1 table looks like 100W/100D/150L — and the second one has table around 50W/100D/0L — still the first one has more pointa then the second one. Pure mathematics.

  8. hello there, can we reset the stats for fifa21 seasons mode ? not on FUT only need to reset the seasons mode

  9. Always bug, the match stops (the screen holds the last image and does not response) after the final whistle blows, especially in cup matches. Have encountered for numerous times. Please fix it, really annoying!

  10. this game really trash and users too. always no oppenent found only thing i could see.
    ALL player are dirty play and very disrespetful play

  11. How does “redeem” work for seasons? I used a win for a season. The next season ( same division) only draw and extra match were available. I thought each option was available once in a season with no limited amount. So where was the “win” option in the next season?

    1. This happened to me. I realised what happened was you used it when you had been promoted to the next division already. So it counts as you using one of the redeem functions for the next season rather than the current one you were playing.
