This patch is a step in the right direction and EA should be congratulated for once.
Anyone complaining about this patch simply don't want FIFA to resemble football whatsoever.
Long direct through balls to strikers are now risky, ping pong passes are less effective and the game speed is perfect.
Learn how to play the game using a midfield instead of scoring the same goals over and over.

    I like that ping pong passes is possible when you use Kroos, Modric, Bergkamp etc. Makes it worth to use good players.

    So I’m a fan too!

    I absolutely agree with your sentiment, it’s a step in the right direction for the non slime player. Find it hard to congratulate a company that released a pretty nice game, patched it for the worse to then have to patch to improve it in november.
    You’re right though, surely we all see the changes are for the better!

    Yeah having players with vision and good passing pays off.
    Most of these complaining probably play the game with a midfield of gueye, bakayoko and klassen.

    Nothing wrong with using them players, my point was using them all without any top passer in there.

    Frustrating about the patch is that ultra defensive/PTB is even more powerful now.

    It's still not good enough. They've only made the game marginally better after the patch. Let's not forget, other companies release amazing games from the jump and make them better with patches. Don't get too excited.

    this patch is all about pace abuse no thanks, rather stick to dominating the midfield previous patches ago.

    Having absolutely no way to break down ptb is great fun.

    Its clearly better than before i have no idea how people can say otherwise. They haven't even change much just the passing accuracy basically. If your someone who used to play football correctly making sure you face your players before you pass and get the angles and power correctly you will barely notice anything.

    Ea will never win with the community, i honestly feel sorry for them sometimes. They can release a fake patch notes saying they change some things when they didnt and people will come say that the gameplay has drastically changed, ptb is back, pace is back etc. Everything i see people complain about has always been in the game.

    I disagree, my passes are extremely slow in some games. It was already like this but now the ball is barely moving in some games even facing the right direction. I will try to upload a video tonight. I am only playing squad battles and some games already felt slow with the slow passes I think its due to input delay - these games are now worse than before as the ball doesn't make it to my player at times

    The passing is a step in the right direction ur correct but unless things are patched to match its unbalanced still .
    Other aspects like ai def are now worse its always one step fw 2 back

    Ptb is no problem anymore now, or not like before, its easier to break down and hunt your opponement as they cant keep passing it blindly in the back.

    I luv it.

    Like what theyve done to passing but its made more stuff unbalanced again u cannot tweak attacking in any way without adjusting def to match fo balance , while the build up and passing is better the op ai defending etc is more effective than ever

    Loving it so far got to say. Finally I can play 433 and 4231 and not be punished by someone hitting 1 60 yard rocket and beating me on the counter. I honestly don’t mind someone playing PTB just be patient and opening appear for long shot. Pay attention who they are controlling if it’s a AI player run at them and use drag back open space for a through ball or shot. Another option have a target man on the bench like Benteke, Manduzkic and whip some crosses in or long shots and win corners.

    If i wasnt challenged on legendary before i am now. I could be having a bad day, but so far iv played 2 games today (squad battles) one on legendary the other on world class. And i am struggling on both difficulties.

    You know what i wont do though? I wont **** about it. Il make a statement and il play and play until i “get gd” just means i wont finish as high up the leaderboard as id like.

    I had this same issue in the two SBs I played. It was like my players hadn't eaten anything and my balls were just barely reaching their target, The first game I played was on Legendary against a B/S/G team which I should've comfortably destroyed 5-0 and I was struggling to create chances against it for most of the game. It was laughable really and flat out boring.

    It's good that the passing stat actually matters now.

    Like it so far

    Also noticed my players actually winning physical battles against Legendary in SB now which is new. Was getting destroyed off the ball by garbage bronzes before

    Some people spent hundreds on this game to play a game that became something entirely different than what it was on launch, I'm sure they are entitled to have some gripes, You are on here complaining about other people complaining ffs :D
