We all know that manual controls are not an easy thing to use, however if you practice enough and give it time you will get use to it. I understand that some of you just want to sit down crack a beer and play a couple of games, but for those that want a better more realistic simulation of the sport that we love (football/Soccer) I can assure you, manual is the way to go. If you enjoy making those needle threading passes or taking a shot and putting right where you want it, you should give it a go. It is not an easy task, but with enough practice you will get use to it.
I am not trying to force people to play on manual, I am just trying to give you an insight on how it feels to be able to be in total control of your actions in the game. Better playmaking, better goals, better passes, better crosses, and more mistakes, this is all you gain when there is 100% human input, and when you put all of these together it just adds up to a better more realistic simulation of the game.
I invite all assisted players to try out manual for this last month of FIfa 17, by the time Fifa 18 comes out you should have the skill to enjoy the new game even more. The more people make the change the better it will be for the community. Remember PRACTICE MAKES THE MASTER.
