EA Implements Scripting and Handicapping in FIFA 15

My frustration with FIFA 15 has come to a boil today. I just needed a place to vent some frustration and have a discussion because I'm sick of EA's bullshit scripting.

I played a total of 5 seasons of Online Seasons on Ultimate Team over the past 2 days. I've played really great games and I've played some really bad games. I started off in Division 6 and seemed to just keep winning game after game. I was able to win the D6 title and advance to D5. I've never made it past D5 before and I just kept winning games. I was winning games 6-2, 6-0, 5-1. It just seemed too good to be true. My strikers were making runs and the perfect times. I was evading and skilling away from overly aggressive tackles. I was promoted to D4 for the first time.

 

Here's where it gets interesting. After a lot of wins and very few losses, I came up against a really strong opponent in D4. This guy was really good and it was a really close game, but I ended up losing 2-1. I didn't think anything of it. The games that followed consisted of me losing by larger and larger margins. 4-2, 3-1, 5-1, 6-0, 5-2, even 7-0. At this point, I was obviously frustrated. I was playing against extremely aggressive defenders who always won the ball. Chip through balls were ALWAYS intercepted. When I did get past the defense, the goalie made a miraculous save or I hit the post (even better).

 

From here, I kept losing and losing. Relegated to D5. Relegated to D6. It just seems too odd that I could have such an easy time and then such a difficult time. I can't attribute this inconsistent game play to human ability alone. Scripting is the only explanation I can come to. I don't understand how I can outplay an opponent like in these pictures and lose (I'm Barcelona):

 

Do you guys think scripting exists? Why do you think EA implements scripting and handicapping in the game??
