FIFA 17 is great game — when it properly responds to player commands, that is. Unfortunately, many gamers are reporting latency issues ruining the gaming experience, causing their squad members to perform surprising, if not illogical, actions.
This issue is even more frustrating because it often affects FUT games, much to players’ despair. FIFA 17 fans suggested several hypotheses that could explain this strange game behavior. Somehow, what gamers see on screen is out of step with what the servers see. As a result, when gamers press buttons in response to what they see, it is possible they are not really doing the right thing.
Another possible explanation is that controller inputs are buffered and then executed at inopportune times. Irrespective of the reason behind this issue, many FIFA 17 players are often puzzled by some of their team’s actions.
