Passing and shooting are just awful and ruining this game for me.
Playing a simple pass is a complete gamble.The power and direction never comes off even half decent. On manual passing is at least doable but it keeps you from being able to make quick passes online so not really worth it. Even when my passes go to the right person its slow and sluggish and the first touch is just as bad. I am completely unable to do passing build up because my players just fumble with the ball. The only way ive been able to play a crisp pass is with the driven pass but when you do that players cant take a decent first touch so there is no quickness to it. Completely impossible to do any decent build up play.
I normally play on semi assisted but i tried all of them and they are all terrible. Shots inside the box are practically useless. They are either off target or saved. The only consistent shot is long shots. All of the games i have played recently have been seeing who can get the most space to get off a long shot which is not how the game should be played.
Instead of this game being focused around passing and build up play for goals, its all about who can dribble into a little bit of space to take a long shot.
