    Connection stability in Online Seasons when finding an opponent in the Arena, and at kick-off.

    most annoying thing about FIFA currently….

    game crashes every third game and you have to exit to the dashboard and start the game again.
    hope they really fix that

    But you still can’t use your offline VP in any offline game modes?

    Something every game review failed to point out while giving it 9/10+, even though that cuts about 7 features that were in the game last year.
