Is there some secret button/control to this game that I just don't know about?

Warning/Spoiler: Longish rant/seeking advice.

Because clearly I'm left in the dark. I don't understand how I can be in the perfect position to make an interception and it just goes between my players legs, or right by them and they make no effort. If I press B for the interception, I get the awful useless stretched leg animation, if I only press LT, it just megs them, if I just simply position them directionally, they just don't react to the pass. MEANWHILE, my opponent can user mark my players out of the game completely and intercept EVERY GOD DAMN PASS that goes within their reach. I seriously don't understand what I'm doing wrong.

Now offensively, is there some secret to play crisp accurate passes? and get great ball control? I'm got what I and most would consider a pretty good team with great ball control, yet my passing in the final third is attrocious about 75% of the time over the recent weeks. It doesn't matter how simple the pass is, the game finds a way to **** it up for me. It's either crisp and inaccurate, or it's accurate and slow as molassus and the game won't let me go to the ball, chooses to force my player to keep backing up and it get's picked off. I'm legitimately scared to make a backwards pass. More often than not when I try pass the ball back to my midfield from my forwards, the game pings it all the back to my CBs and sometimes straight to their striker... no matter how LIGHTLY I tap A sometimes, it'll skip that wide open player 5 yards away and ping it on the other side of the pitch. There are games where I feel like the game won't let me pass it to certain players. And again... on the flip side my players passing will be the most incredible thing I've ever witnessed.

So please.... any advice would be greatly appreciated. This weekend league was the worst gameplay overall I've ever experienced in any FIFA. I failed to get AT LEAST Gold 1 for the first time since the first WL when I didn't even finish my games and got gold 3.

    Exactly dude. Some of the gameplay I've seen against me was absolutely incredible, but if I tried even half of it, I'd never get even half the successful passes.

    The thing that pisses me off... is I could run the EXACT same squad, tactics, etc as guys like Gorilla or Tass and I'd NEVER get even half the runs/touches/amazing animations as those guys get. The way those guys can ping the ball around with no issues is absolutely incredible. I genuinely don't know what the **** i'm doing wrong.

    You're saying you've never had a game been decided by luck or a bad animation costing you a goal?

    I genuinely believe there's some sort of influence the game has. I don't understand how people can let the CPU defend so amazingly for them, they get all the interceptions and auto tackles, but when I play the same way, the CPU is just all over the place, getting megged, etc. I played a guy with the same backline as me, He had NIF Perisic and he absolutely TORCHED my Boateng, like dribbling and breaking away from my backline... meanwhile i'm on the other side and get a breakaway with Bale and Ronaldo and they are both chased down. A few times this weekend league my players genuinely wouldn't sprint when I was holding down the trigger.

    It just makes no sense to me how some guys have midfielders that intercept everything for them, while i could use those same players and they are constantly getting megged and bad animations.

    maybe not so much DECIDE the game... but influence it.

    FIFA/EA shouldn't have put the WL in the game when there's a lot of things that seem to be decided by the CPU.

    I've had it cost me goals, but it'll never decide the game because there are so many other things that go into the final result.

    90th minute 1-1, a guy has a counter attack and passes it right through your players legs because he got the stupid tackle animation, game decided by an animation

    A bunch of **** happened during the other 89 minutes of the game...it's not decided purely by one bad animation.

    Okay but a 1-1 game in the 90th minute is obviously two evenly matched players yes? Why should one win just because he had better luck and got a good animation and the other guy lose because he got a bad animation

    People think I'm crazy when I say that I genuinely don't notice a difference in the build up and chance creation sections. The only custom tactics that noticeably make a difference are the defensive ones imo.

    Stuff happens, you can either focus on the things you can't control like that or you can try and improve your game in other stuff you do control so you're not always in a situation where something like a bad animation **** you over.

    but that's the thing man... I've taken everyones advice as far as passing... people think i'm weird when I ask what button/buttons they hold when they pass a ball.. because when I do the same things, my passing is all over the place. There are some games where my passing is amazing, the next I can pass the exact same way and it's attrocious

    I understand, sometimes I do make a bad pass that I can control... but I'm more or less referring to when the game constantly passes to the wrong guy.

    I've got it on whatever the default is... I know putting it on aggressive in the past was killing stamina. Can anyone confirm if that makes a difference?

    I understand stuff happens which is why they I think that it's a joke that they say it's a competitive game. Competitive games aren't decided by animation or luck, they're decided by skill

    you could not be more wrong with this. one bad animation can cost you a goal, which can decide a close game. and happens wayyy to often in this game.

    Head to Head is a perfect example of how the game should be played. There's SOOOOOOO MUCH less BS in that game mode because players play the way they should ever game. I never have a game in H2H where a player is a god one game, and useless the next. I wish FUT would take out chem styles and attribute cards. Team Chem is the only thing that needs to stay. **** all the extra BS pack fillers. They aren't needed.

    I agree, would be great for the game if they did away with the chem system that decides games.
