    I can't help playing it! Even though it kills me to lose i still need to play it daily to the exclusion of other games!

    Always looking for team mates

    Ps4, lvl 43, challenger status, I work best in mid field.

    Anyone?

    I like it a lot but I wouldn't say I'm addicted. I'm only at semi-pro/pro level. Got kinda turned off by it the last couple of weeks since it's been teaming me up with/against people WAY above me who do things like call me "trash" and sling insults left and right.

    The game is most fun playing with friends and people at my skill level, but the matchmaking has sucked lately.

    Super bummed I didn't pick this up on the PS+ freebie month. Seems like an awesome game.

    I've been doing season mode. Just started playing online last night. Had 4 goals in one game. After playing with coordinated AI, online seems easy.

    Start playing competitive and it'll put you with equals soon enough.

    Once you're jumping and boosting for aerial shots, using the second jump to hit it you'll be laying down some hot sauce.

    It's easily worth buying. The controls have more depth than any game, only your familiarity with them determines your success/failure.

    Yeah, I'm still trying to build the confidence. I'm playing with people that are just out there to fly around at the moment.

    The first ten games gauge your skill then you're given a rank and away you go. Best to do the first ten soon as possible as you'll then get a longer period of winning before it levels out.

    I'm at challenger status now and it's brutal. Any miss is capitalised on.

    Wouldn't say addicted, but I still have a good time whenever me and my friends play online.
