Is there a way to change how fast the ball travels when passed?

I hold Triangle or X all they way, I get a full thing of power and the ball goes like 1m... ?

It's so dumb...

    I know, but you can't always use that. For example, I was trying to pass to a player that was near me and a driven pass wouldn't have worked in that situation and i held X to pass it fast and the ball took like 3 seconds to get to him

    i have wanted to know this forever. I dont understand why passing weight is not just about powering up. Why have a driven pass? why is that not just how much power you apply. I think it has to do with assisted passing and how the AI uses power and direction to determine where you wanted the ball to go.

    Its stupid imo. Now you get people who just drive pass the ball all over the field making the game look ridiculous. The passing in 18 is as poorly implemented as any FIFA I have played. I dont know why passing stats exist. Every player can play ping pong like prime Barca

    But how can you do a quick pass for short range in real life. A fast ball requires power so it is not viable at short range as the receiver can find it difficult to control.

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    I agree. But holding X for a full line of power, however many bars that is, 4 or whatever, and the ball still goes slow. If I were to use driven pass in that situation the receiving player would not be able to control it.
