The gameplay is actually very nice but I think there is definitely some online games are rigged.
In some online matches I feel as if I get super lucky that the ball automatically coming to the feet of my players and forwarders actively pursuing the forward passes and so on. But other games, it’s exactly opposite. It seems as if the matches are “rigged” in favor or against you based on some criteria. My guess is that you win few games in a streak, then get ready to have odds against you. You basically control only one player, so the program can manipulate/control a lot to favor in either direction. Following are some issues/riggings that I found in the games when the programming god is playing against you
- you lob a ball and the opponent will always be in front of you.
- there is noticeable delay in passing the ball when the game is rigged and the opponent will tackle you in super sonic speed before you get the chance to pass, even with the players with 100 pass skills.
- the opponent’s defender will always outpace your forwarders like Messi or Ronaldo who have full speed, acc etc
- you tackle the ball and somehow the ball will still end up on your opponents feet and this will continue to happen throughout the game.
- this is most annoying that if the attack is going to happen against you, the defenders will be activated in such a way that it will clear the way for the opponents forwarders. Even if you try to switch, the defender at worst possible place will be activated, so clearly giving the chance to your opponent to score a goal.
- tell me how many times it happened to you that either you or your opponent miraculously did a goal in the last few seconds?
really good game, getting better with smoothness in gameplay and very aesthetically pleasing. the only thing that i think is a take away is that the only way to develop players is through mass amounts of gems. also, it used to be in dream league 16-18 that the coaching and development systems were different. for example, i had a team with that jonny hayes player from aberdeen in my starting team and i was able to have his overall reach a 92 when i made it to the elite division which was the highest at the time i believe. i guess i just really appreciated how i could develop players who weren’t that good and make them legends in my dream league team. now it just feels like if i want good players i can only sign them, and don’t get me wrong, i signed plenty of players. but i just like being able to develop players into legends. the development isn’t nearly as prominent because of the amount of gems you have to spend, and for some players it isn’t even a 10pt increase when they max out, while back in dream league 16 i could make a 68 jonny hayes a 92 overall. just food for thought, i’m in love with the game and would love to see that development system come back into a much better looking and functioning dream league game. i hope you guys read this! :D
The online games are scripted, and I’m an actual really good player I can go from dominating someone the entire game and I for some reason my shot missed it gets saved by the keeper or his defenders all become a prime Ramos, there also this thing where when two players are running for the ball the player that gets there last usually just stops as if he ran into a brick wall and it annoying, I’ve lost countless games because of this, the market where u buy players is foolish well I don’t really like it I’d rather be able to buy who ever I want to improve my team not what the game gives me. Online matchmaking is foolish aswell I got to the 14th division and the only ppl u play against are guys with maxed out Messi and Ronaldo’s is very annoying plz this game used to be so good a couple years back I’ve been playing this game since the 5th grade man or the franchise Ik you guys are not finna care about this review really cause u know some of what I’m saying is true but plz take it into consideration also will there ever be another FTS that game was a masterpiece wish the World Cup was in it tho
Overall a really incredible game that doesn’t disappoint. I absolutely love the amount of customization you can do and the controls and graphics are top notch. However, I really don’t understand somethings like why the crossing and heading feature were removed and also why you can’t search for players anymore, or why coaches now select players to coach randomly and how you can’t receive coins from selling players anymore which just seems unrealistic.I believe these changes are holding the game back a bit. Also playing online is pointless unless every one of your players is 99 rated, I wish there was a heavier buffer system between maxed out teams and those who are not quite there yet, as playing against someone who is maxed when you aren’t means that they can get away with some pretty brain dead things. Overall an incredible game that is very fun to play. Great work.
There are some problems with the AI, but it’s not a console game so I’m not really disappointed. The overall gameplay is good minus the player positioning, though it’s not horrid.
The developers really focused on the users which is rare for sports games these days. They pay lots of attention to small details and things.
The customization is great, plain as that.
I would like to see a bit more in the career mode. Things like hiring coaches, and I think getting sponsor deals for your uniform, and then they give you some money every game. Then you could get better sponsors as you get better.
Overall, amazing game, please fix CB positioning, because that is horrid. As a CB I know.
On thing you guys should have is sell players to other players or just sell them for there normal price another thing is bring icons I really want you guys to be the best football mobile app so pls add icons again make sure we can sell players also make sure we get a tots or toty and can we have packs other than those little updates I want and more people want to I love this game it is soo nice better than fifa mobile and pes mobile but I know if you want to be the best football mobile game gonna have to do what I am saying if you update these in the game and still the 3rd best mobile game I am sorry
I’ve grown up on this game. I used to play it consistently when I was younger around the age of 15. Now I’m 21, and wanted to get that feeling of beating Barcelona or Real Madrid in the Cup Final again. I just really would recommend being able to develop my players like how I used. Being able to invest in my players that I started the game with instead of having to use gems to make my squad better. It low key drags the game down now, from when before I was able to develop them easier. Overall great game. I just would recommend making it easier to make my guys better over time
After the newest update there have been very weird changes to shooting mechanics and defensive mechanics. It seems the AI defense smothers my team when I have to ball but when the other team has it, my players back off and don’t do anything. Also the pace of players seems to not matter at all. How is Messi with 98 speed getting out paced by someone with 74 speed. It makes no sense at all. The game has become very “jammy” and frustrating at a lot of times. This game has improved over the years but it still has so many kinks to work out
I’d like to request for the addition of transfer windows. Whereby I can buy, sell and loan in ‘n out. And try to make the transfer windows once every beginning of the season.
I believe this will make the game look more better and relaxed for me, bekuz I cant afford a PlayStation game so I would like to see this features on DL21:)
This will really make me feel very very very happy if you apply these features, please.
I hope my review is observed and followed.

Compared to its older versions, this is the worst. It’s mainly become a pay to win since the players and stadium upgrades are so expensive and you get next to nothing for each game. The gameplay is decent but could be way better since the opponents team will never run out of stamina even though yours will, the carding system is unpredictable, and the aiming for passes and kicks will occasionally fail you. It’s a decent game but it’s the little things that will annoy you when you get further into it.
