In the final of draft, goes to penalties and as ❤️❤️❤️❤️ usual I get no arrow. So obviously I need to just run up and tap and hope it goes in whilst my opponent is zinging them top corner. Needs sorted pronto

    Just pissed cause it was the final man. It happens to me all the time. Like if it was both of us fine but it's not. It's frustrating to lose like that so hopefully a patch soon eh

    Can we just go back to the old penalties? I liked full power + straight down so much better.

    And here I am not even realizing you're supposed to get an arrow lol. I just figured it's invisible, like the cursor from the old pens.

    Haha, no mate. Seems most of us are having the issue. Penalties are difficult enough, then you get no arrow and they're basically impossible haha

    Are you kidding. If you think penalties are impossoble without the arrow then you are a scrub. Its really simple honestly. Go practice a few

    I've never had the arrow. I've never had a problem with them. I heard they had changed and went into the skill games to figure them out. Maybe that would help you?

    Arrow is only visible in training..and that is how it should be.

    Penalties are great...you can finally 'customize' your shoot with fast-slow run up...you can feint left-right...just practice and you'll figure out.

    Do you have arrows for shooting during the game? Did you have arrows for penalties last year? They only showed the arrows the first few times so you can learn it. It's too easy with arrows. Maybe you should, you know, practice a bit.

    You can press up on the d-pad to manually trigger / de-trigger the penalty arrow online.

    I'm aware now. I didn't know they weren't in game. It's too easy? Quit blowing smoke up your own Arse eh

    Which is why I assumed something was wrong. I get that now. So the reality is the other guy was better than me at penalties. Now I know haha

    Yes it's too easy. It tells you exactly where it'll go. How is that hard? Without the arrow then you actually have to practice and learn through experience like the other penalty system. I haven't gotten it down yet but everyone has to learn the new system.

    I agree with you. I hate the new system of the penalties. Every time I got penalty I don't have an arrow and I tried to turn on but no luck. I don't care about what other said. I like the other old way!!!!!

    Yeah I'm aware of that now. I just didn't know. I haven't had any practice with penalties. I'll learn like everyone else. Like I said, my mistake. I didn't have a clue they weren't in game hence why I was pissed.

    I usually turn on the assist thingy by pressing down R3, kinda acts like an arrow, or it at least shows which direction you're aiming

    I don't even understand this years penalty, it's just so much more troublesome than last year. Can anyone tell me the difference between where i start my run?

    Funny thing is I'm utterly awful at this game, but I can rocket in penalties one after another even without the arrow. Have no idea why I am great with the new penalties; it's too bad I suck at everything else. To be honest, though, with all the gameplay issues I have no idea why they decided to put time into overhauling the penalties.

    You'll get better dude! It's quite hard to get used to this FIFA but when you do, you'll be sorted. Definitely agree, their time should've been spent on more important issues

    I don't like how you can't have a low penalty that actually goes fast
