Unhappy Why don't people play 'properly' online?

It seems like everyone I come up against doesn't do any skill moves and scores shit goals! Why can't people see that's not how to play this game! I'd rather lose 10-1 in a match where both sides are doing skills than win by playing like it's fifa 12! I mean come on guys you buy the game for the great goals with loads of skill moves that look so cool when done well, not to score easy goals. Has anyone else had this problem and if you do it yourself,why??

Retitle this thread...Why Chickin doesn't play online
You can't predict how others will play, unless you're playing with friends.

People don't play it 'properly' because most people don't like to lose. You can blame the players, but you can also blame Fifa Street for having the wrong focus. It is to much emphasised on goals rather than tricks.
Online just sucks: why the fuck we can't play with real teams and have all gamemodes available anyway.

Tbh im one of these online players that play fifa street as a normal game of fifa.
Im play 'street' against the cpu.

Reason being is simple. I want to win.

Just this minute ive just won my first online cup. Everyone i was against played it like fifa. Had i played it street, i would be out in the 1st rd.

At the end of the day tricks dont win games its goals.

If anyone is to blame it's EA for not balancing the game properly. Unless you have incredible skill it's easier to win playing without tricks, so of course that's how most people will play.

Ever watched stoke play and you will find out. It all about about winning! No matter which way you get the ball in the back of the net.

I just played my first online game, lost 8-1 but I'm made up as I scored a skill goal when my opponent didn't...I got the moral victory!

In fairness the aim of the game is to score the most goals and skill will get you past players but normal football will get the ball in the back of the net!

Two can play at that game!

I really cant be bothered to do all tricks, i do my usual favourites, at the end of the day it goals that count.
I realised in a panna tournament that the CPU can do as many tricks as it wants but if it doesnt score then it wont win.
To be honest i have more respect for a human opponent that plays football than someone who does tricks ALL the time. If theres a balanced mix then thats cool.

With the game modes played online I believe they are playing properly.

If they were playing panna or freestyle then sure tricks are the name of the game.

5v5 etc the name of the game is stick the ball in the back of the net. Tricks are not needed unless they help.

I can tell you now when I play 5v5 in career I only do tricks if I am struggling to break down teams with fifa play and that is not very often.

I'm not bothered by the counter, rush and charge type of play but today in a cup match one guy constantly pressed the pause button hoping I would quit out and he would stall when the ball was out. First half took like 15 minutes. WTF is that, they should add a cap to the max number of pauses a game. Why would someone pause anyway, it's not that you can change anything and 30 seconds is too short for a "phone call".

I prefer to use a mix of both. I only really use roulette and rainbow flick when trying to win but if I'm a few up then I use more tricks. It does get annoying though when people don't do any tricks.

this seems soooooo much different from fifa street 3 where i loved skilling but on the demo i didnt really see the point it didnt really get me anywhere and scoring any amazing goals didnt seem to work compared to when it did on fifa street 3
