FIFA 16.4

We are really getting our money's worth this year. By my count this is FIFA 16.4 making it the fifth version of this release. What a deal every couple of weeks the game you thought you were going to play is appreciably different. I didn't receive an update on the game but it is different. Passing and ball control appears to have been tweaked. First touches result in more random results. My possession has decreased do to that and the passing not being as accurate. In addition the controls seem less responsive. Finally the defenders are not disciplined. The defenders leave gaps and step up after the ball carrier leaving space for through balls. Maybe it's all in my head but I don't think so.

    The through balls are easier than ever now. My defense won't stop chasing the ball carrier just like previous fifa versions. This wasn't this bad on this game before. The back four did their job.

    My passing has dropped from 90% to 75-80... Last week or so has been terrible for me too

    When you struggle to control your team the game is not fun. It is frustrating and annoying so good call with these changes. Certainly making the game less fun makes you want to play it and buy packs.

    This feels like a step backwards for sure. Cannot play with any consistency. It's a struggle to hold your division now with virtually no chance of promotion. Wins become ties or losses randomly based on things out of your control. The previous update made the game enjoyable for the first time now this is going the wrong way. I feel like this change began at the end of last week.

    I think the game is actually closer to the release than it was two weeks ago. I cannot create a chance or hold possession. Just played two games lost one tied one. In the loss I have no idea where my defense went. Rooney was allowed to walk in from the right with no defender in sight. All of the goals scored against me were on quick breaks caused by a turn over due to every player in the game suddenly having the infamous first touch skill of Mario Gotze from FIFA 14. At this point I cannot see any reason to play the game. It's unplayable. AI players are chaotic. No positional discipline. Can't complete a pass cleanly so it's virtually impossible to score by actually playing the game. All goals are the result of lucky bounces or total defensive AI mistakes. How many times have you gone in for a tackle the last two weeks only to have the ball bounce right to your opponent for an easy goal, or had your cb step up leaving a gaping hole. SIF Aubameyang cannot out run anyone? What a mess again. EA fix this mess.

    I guess there is possibility that EA can change the slider settings for AI on the FUT without any patch update. Not sure though, but it would explain the fact that the defensive positioning has indeed gone worse in the past few days. Even I can see that.

    Yes this is definitely true.

    I could be wrong but this has improved for me. I am able to maintain the ball much easier now. This has to be a tough one for ea to balance. Too much passing it becomes ping pong too much dribbling skill and pace you cant defend.

    I have 11 squads right now. I think I need to cut that at least in half and start really looking at strengths and weaknesses and do a better job of putting guys in positions to succeed based on their card abilities. I had a good night last night including using my Messi Neymar TOTY Iniesta/Modric squads. But who knows what tonight will bring I just wish there was consistency. I also need to slow it down. Opponents wanna fly up and down the field with their Walcott's and I get caught up in it at times. I need to start playing more of a possession style game and focus on defending. Try to counter all the BS EA has thrown in our faces. I love this game, I don't want to and can't just walk away from it lol.

    @indcolts18288 you're right it's not just us. There's a lot more on futhead forums saying the same thing we are. A lot of them are dropping the high rated players for more economical ones and are having more fun.

    I've noticed the ones who aren't complaining are the pace abusers and miraculous headers.

    Same here. Walcott type players. It gets old.

    I think it's more of a ping pong match now. Except it's the defense and offense that's doing it. Every game it somehow goes right to the defenders legs and it gets stuck there and no one can touch the ball for a sec. It's like rattling at the foot of the defender.

    I know what you mean, but I don't think it's you. My newly created fitness team is unstoppable and seems so less heavy than my super squad. When I play with my toty squad it feels like they're playing soccer in mud. But when I play with my fitness team it's more free. I can actually go left and right smoothly and their agility is less than 40. Lol.
