In 2018 I was posting on Reddit under the name /Arlington69. The posts looked to see if I could find some proof of Momentum / Scripting or handicapping in EA's FIFA titles or of general interest.

I have been noting the Date of every player I have faced in FIFA 20 and the result of the game. The results are in the two tables below.

Having played almost 2000 games I have been keeping track of which was the hardest Goal Keepers to score against. The results are below. The best goalkeepers in FIFA I have faced are; Leno (84), Ederson (88), Areola (82) and Van der Sar (89). How can the best Goal Keepers be so low rated. Part … Continue reading An Analysis of the best Goal Keepers in FIFA 20
Do highly rated Goal Keepers perform better in game? When I played against goalkeepers rated 92 or higher. The same for Goalkeepers less than 92 When Compared for the whole match the higher rated Goalkeepers performed slighlty worse than the lower rated.

In my previous post I produced a flow chart showing how the game progressed from each score line. https://futingfeefa.com/2020/02/20/does-rubber-banding-exist-in-fifa20/ I noticed something very interesting at 3 -2. The number of goals scored was different depending on the previous results. In the 102 games where the score had been 2 - 2 both teams scored the … Continue reading 3 – 2 is a dangerous score in FIFA 20
Anyone who has played FIFA has had one of those games where they pepper the goal and cannot score and the opponent has one or two shots on target and scored them all. I wanted to see if shooting accuracy changes when a player has more shots on target for a sample of 1141 games … Continue reading More Shots on Target = fewer of those shots scored in FIFA 20
https://youtu.be/KJmG6Bct5hA This short video shows how momentum works in FIFA 20. This is from 2 player kick off where I controlled both teams.

I scored an own goal so the scores are uneven and then just watched what happens when I did nothing... … Continue reading My Latest Youtube video. Showing how momentum works in FIFA 20
For each game I looked at when the score changed and who scored. I then produced a flow diagram showing the number of games were the score changed.

I posted on this almost 2 years ago about bronze benching. https://www.reddit.com/r/FutingFeefa/comments/f5pfpb/bronze_benching_works/ This showed a slight shift downwards for when I used a bronze bench over when I did not. There was an argument that this did not work and that your skill rating / elo is used for match making not the team rank. … Continue reading Does bronze benching give a benefit in FIFA 20?
I have seen it mentioned that players of FIFA feel the game turns and they can totally dominate one half and be dominated in the second half. For example game 891 in my data set. At half time I had 58% possession. 5 Shots, 3 shots on target and not scored. My opponent had 2 … Continue reading In Fifa 20.
