    I love to play FIFA 18 on my Playstation 4. It is very addictive game for me. The FIFA 18 Hack is the best choice for a FIFA player who is looking for lots of coins and gems. Anyways, thanks for posting this guide. It is very helpful.

    I don't know what game you are playing mate but there is no way any "stop and turn" works against the god like powers of the computer AI. In squad battles (or any online mode) any difficulty passed semi-pro is extremely hard this year.

    The game applies user sliders before each match and there is a noticeable difference immediately when you start the game. My players are much slower, they don't respond normally and the computer AI user stats are buffed to the point that any player rated beyond a 70 is a mini Pele on any team. The amount of blocked shots, intercepted passes and getting pushed off the ball by a 5'4 140lbs LW is ridiculous.

    In squad battles I lose to a barely rated 70 team with a 186 rated squad, how does that make sense? I've been playing FIfa for a very VERY long time and FIFA18 is by far the worst version ever. I'm on FUT looking at all the pack "promo's'" and that's what FIFA18 is really about, exploiting people for money.

    Instead of spending money on making a better game, EA would rather profit off people by exploiting them as much as possible. The game is shit and they know it. Everything from Squad Battles, online match making, flawed defenses, bad animations, glitches, lost server connections etc etc etc, the game in general is complete garbage. Everyone please play PES instead..... #FixFIFAEdited November 2017 by Pan1cShooter
