    I don't think people are talking about the outcome being scripted. They are talking about the game giving an advantage to one player.

    That's not built into the game. Other than one team having higher overalls, there's no advantage given to one side over the other.

I will replay a very difficult game where I won 5-3 against a 85 OVR team... so the same team, with the same players, 2 min later... and I will lead 5-0 EASILY and have close to 20 shots...

    SPOT ON bro. You know in the start of the game. Those cards are a big joke, its robbery and Ea must make this game free of charge or stop those packs.You can go read my post in here, why I lose to a lower skill team.

    What a steaming load of cow dung, the game is out to get me. If you believe the game won’t let you win, especially against AI then it’s time to quit gaming. Paranoia will destroy ya.
