Been having an argument with my friends about Fifa a few years ago and we were wondering when crossing was at its best and worst in the period of between Fifa 12 and 14. Our memories have betrayed us, some say in Fifa 13 it was at its most OP whereas others say it was nerfed. Anyone know?

    Ok thanks guys. Was it nerfed on 13? In my memory it was so they tried to make it useful again in 14 but ruined it

    Zig zag runs with Tots Reus and whip it in to RB Klose. Automatic goal.

    Good times.

    I can remember my first game on 14. Came up against someone who scored about 5 headers with Negrado. That was fun.

    There was a patch maybe 2 weeks after release on 14, that patched finesse shots and headers. Both were a goal 100% of the time. They were still op after it, but not quite as over the top, no pun intended.

    The general rule of thumb is: op, broken, op, broken etc. If something works or is op one year, it'll be completely useless the year after, it's like they don't have a clue how to balance anything.

    yea 14 crossing was beyond broken.

    13 had a lot of broken things too lol, near post shots were insane, the 5* skill running scoop turn could basically beat any defender if performed at the correct time, players with 5* WF seemed to be able to score from anywhere no matter their shooting stat (aka Mayuka), and you had your obvious broken pace merchants like Welliton and co.

    All I remember from FUT 13 were 352 Bundesliga teams and Neymar being a God.

    Yeah this is exactly what I've been thinking, because my mate is mint at Fifa when crossing is OP and rubbish when it's not and I'm convinced he won our annual tournament on 14 after coming 5th on 13. So much hassle just for the sake of an argument :D

    Yes I'm pretty sure this is true. You have helped my argument. Thanks :D

    No, near post shots were op all year long, and the l1 speed bost.

    Body feints and zig zag were really op in 15

    14 was the worst. 13 is quite bad too in terms of crossing

    I've preferred every FIFA to this year tbh but yeah 14 was crossing. Even Gary Lineker used to head everything in

    Fifa 13,14,15 and 16 were all good for crossing-heading.I was using Klose in 13,14 and Carroll in 15,16.

    But 15 and 16 were far more OP,i think.Or Carroll was :D

    One of my goals with Carroll in 15,

    13 was the last time I remember crossing being effective. (Didn't have 14 though).

    14, Walcott winning headers at corners over crouch. I stopped playing that one early. Every even numbered FIFA has been trash for me.

    The LB-Y days 15 were :wink:

    We're ridiculous that year, defences were dumbfounded by them.

    I agree yes crossing worked & was powerful but everything attacking was OP which is better than the AI defensive mess we have now
