Losing my mind (passing)

In the last couple of days i've been getting at least 5-10 passes per game that literally go in the complete opposite direction that i'm aiming the pass, and always to my player that's (conveniently) standing offside. This used to happen occasionally, but lately it's been happening way too much.

Just left a game after it happened twice in the span of 5 minutes. Both times i had wide open goal chances only for the pass to go at a 90 degree angle from where i was really passing. And, of course, it's magically to the offside player.

What's the point in even playing when there are so many ❤️❤️❤️❤️ that i can't even control what's happening?

    Yes the passing is a nightmare, whether on manual or assisted

    Quite often it has a mind of it's own, and the ones where the passes go to the player standing in an offside position is very annoying, even though you are aiming to another player.

    Also the number of times I am on attack and want to make a simple square pass, not cross, to my man about 15 yards out using the X button, for some reason at times goes at a 45 degree angle behind my player and back up field to one of his players

    And this is with a week old controller so it is not that

    The part about passes going at a 45 degree angle - this happens a couple of times a game to me also. Used to blame the controllers but likewise after getting new ones it still happens!

    It's crazy! Even when you try to play back to your keeper! If there is an other defensive player, it plays to him!! In the wrong angle! The cause is: the st cuts the pass off and strikes!

    The passing is so much idiotic that you cannot supply your striker! Got 2 strikers. When I try to pass to my right it passes to tie left striker euich is in offside or covered by defense!
    It's not normal and I think when this is happening, there is some "magic" in game! You know what I mean...

    EA's obsession with the offside rule has broken the game. All passes go to the player who is offside (if there is one). That, along with the disallowed goals, can do one.

    People that say this really annoy me. Even when u pass to the player u are facing it goes somewhere else. It happens all the time. I love the game but would be so much better if passing was tweaked a bit

    That's fair enough mate but why does it pass the opposite way from where you are standing. Example:
    I'm coming down the left wing, few yards from halfway line.. I want to pass to the player 2 feet away from me... So are you saying I have to stop look at the player before I pass? Because it can't pass if you point the direction on your controller... And this all in the motion of play where your concentration is 100% any mistake your punished....

    Yup even Messi passes like a lemon. Cost me a game the other day when Messi misplaced a simple 10yd pass passing to completely the wrong player.

    The game automatically looks for the offside player when there is a chance of playing to either a offside/onside player, its pathetic and something that needs addressed for 17.

    I tried a through pass forward but Crossfield at 45 degree to an open player. It tried a through pass backwards to one of my defenders, which was intercepted and resulted in an open goal for my oponant. Lost 1-0. needed a draw for promotion......

    Try tapping pass or though ball if 2 yards away also use LT RT dribbling and sway left and right when receiving the ball to mix it up with your passing. 10 yards plus passes have to be driven which can be annoying for some folks.

    It seems to affect the through pass more than the normal pass. Quite a few times I've been in a situation where I want to play a simple short ball across the face of the goalmouth into the path of an attacker for a simple tap in, but instead the ball flies back at a 45 degree angle towards somebody near the center circle. It is infuriating!

    The worse is when your player decides to shoot on his own, running towards goal and for some reason he shoots from 40 yards out on hes own... WTF EA!!!

    Thanks, champ.

    Yes, i know how to pass. Typically around 85% for a match. Lower if the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ are strong that game or it's a lag slide show.

    The two instances i had last night were not even close. Like i said, i had two easy goal chances. Lined up the pass, and i had the right power and it just zoomed off completely to the other direction to a player that was offside.

    Must be nice to have an "uncompromised" account where all of your passes go to where you aimed.
