Yes. EAs sports games have gotten so bad in this area. There's not much attention given to the single player AI anymore. There has to be a way to leverage cloud compute. Have the sports equivalent of driveators. I used to be such a huge sim sports game fan but can't get into EA sports games these days.EA games have gone from frustrating to unplayable lately (at least offline). Not only has the AI not improved, it seems to have gotten worse in many games. They basically make games assuming everyone plays online at this point. In Fifa and NHL, the CPU players just run/skate around with superhuman powers. They aren't smart, they are just super agile and can never be beaten.
The only mode I enjoy in any of the games is where you just control one player (be a pro or whatever they call it in the various games).
Still like this service for the other stuff.
