Weak foot calcs

So I searched WF and came across a few older threads where people said Rob, years prior, said WF is calculated as percentage in 1/5 intervals. So a 4*WFer with a 90 shot would have 90 with strong foot and 72 weak foot (90*.8=72).

A 2*WFer with 90 shot would have 36 weak foot shot then!!

Is this true? For shooting only or passing too? Anyone have any idea, or all speculation?

    I don't know, it's really random. I've whipped in some world class shots with a 2* WF. But the general consensus is if you want to lower that randomness, put it on the strong foot as much as you can.

    It's a rational guess, but it's still only speculation. As far as I'm aware, there has been no detailed explanation from EA.

    My plan is to just always avoid shooting and passing with everyone's weak foot (unless they're 5*).

    Cool. Thanks guys. I do wonder...

    This is one of the older threads I was referencing:
    http://fifaforums.easports.com/en/discussion/38320/is-5-star-weak-foot-really-make-it-the-same-as-stronger-foot

    Last 8 posts or so claim it was confirmed by a mod. But no original source!
