Does anyone on here play FIFA 11? I'm fed up of ranked match dickheads quitting out of matches because they're getting beaten. If anyone's up for a game PM me your gamertag.

I used xboxliveuk76 this guy last year £28.99 for 13 months. As it happens mine ran out last night, so if you find a better deal give me a shout.

thats so pathetic, our kids never ever ever ever played a full game online, they ALWAYS quit when hes winning.
worst flaw ever that, they so need to adress it so that if you quit whilst losing you still get the loss recorded, cos its just not worth playing online whatsoever as it is. (which he doesnt)

oh does it, i dont play it, all i know is sitting there and him shouting 'cunt' every time he plays it when hes having a great game and as soon as he scores they quit. so i just assumed thats why.

I'm not too sure, I tend not to play online cos I'm not very good and get nerd rage too often. Pretty sure it does though, could be wrong.

They gain your rage. I think it does record the win if you've played more than 10 minutes, but it's still fucking annoying.

yea if you quit a game, it's a loss, plus you lose more rank points if you quit instead of playing to the end.
you also have a DNF (did not finish?) percentage to show how much of a bad loser you are.

People have quite loads on me, and it's never gone down as a win for me.

Some people have even quit right at the end of the game in injury time, and still get away without a loss.

This is on the playstation 3 though.
