So I have the fifa profile on, my location is in the UK
I can see a server in the Netherlands I believe?
But every time I search for a game in fut champions it tries to connect me to American servers, I see the yellow triangle pop up in America everytime and thankfully the duma doesn't allow me to connect.

I don't know what to do though as i can't find a game on the Netherlands server or one that is closer than America...

I've tried hard resetting my xbox several times, I've also reset my router a couple of times and reapplied the appropriate settings.

Any help or information would be welcomed :')

for fut champs there is no server in the netherlands. its played on dedicated server located in the us, there are a few in the uk. but they are dislocated (they show also up in us). so what works is setting ping assist but you have to figure out what works for you to get on the uk servers. for me i have a 42-47 ms ping to the us dedi server and a 32-36 ms ping to uk ones. so i have my ping assist at 36 ms. but as i said there are more us servers so it could last a bit until you find a uk server

Victors advice above is great; unfortunately FUT is badly set up, with very minimal server coverage. It only runs on those few dedicated servers, so ping assist will be your best bet here.

The servers are mislocated in the US, they should ping between 25-50ms which will be the Irish ones which are still awful but need to have them allowed for Weekend League otherwise you wouldn't get a game

Yeah my experience with the weekend league is truly awful :(

I connect to certain games and my players feel in sync, they lock onto passes, the ai moves how they should, I'm able to dribble etc and with all this it allows me to play my best fifa and actually enjoy the game win or lose.

The weird thing for me is, the best connections i have are against foreigners, I don't know what servers they're played on but I get input delay, the gameplay is slow but it's very playable and enjoyable because my players are actually in sync with the play. I truly wish I could force my play on this server but unfortunately it just seems to change me from time to time no matter what settings i leave on.

The worst ones for me are the ones that I've been having today (weekend league was extended until 7am tomorrow) and i seem to get them every week.
The game play is fast however players are not synced in, passing power is random, it's almost impossible to intercept passes, shooting is difficult, e.g if you shoot in the corner it goes down the middle.
There's just so many flaws in this type of play and i seem to lose 70% of games that i play on it but even when I win i don't enjoy it. Feels like such a stressful experience having to fight with the game play.

Any idea what servers they could be?

As strange as it sounds i think the slow in sync games are possibly played on the American servers.
I could be wrong though.

Agreed when the gameplay is decent it's a joy to play but it is far to inconsistent... I have had about 15 games out of 650 that have been smooth.

Alot of it boils down to ea being cheap skates and using very poor servers, they went down twice over the weekend and that's without any major sbcs going on... Should be Bundesliga this week so will be bad again.

Have a look here, there are many of us who are struggling with the Input lag

As has been said already make sure to use ping assist, that will get around incorrectly located servers until i can move them

I would go with around 20ms above your base ping.

That's what I mean, it will allow you to connect to good ping servers even if they're mis located so you still get good games until i've put them in the right place
