EA in FIFA17 & FIFA18 have both introduced AI (Auto Defending) just to suit the casual players this really annoys me... because it gives them a chance.. if FIFA wasn't an ESport (Competitive) I could see the logic behind it but the games just not fun anymore, I played some noob yesterday with a negative record lol, I performed a simple fake shot away from his player and I could quite clearly see he wasn't even controlling his player he was literally just holding "contain" & his player Automatically read me well his AI & his player autocleared the ball up the pitch.... in older FIFA'S even FIFA16 these Auto Actions never happened... but E.A just want the Average Andy to have a chance but the game has become boring & un-skilled + the fact the Kick Off glitch wasn't even fixed makes it even worse.
FIFA19 is make or break for me, i'm 24 years old lol, been playing FIFA since 1999.. I want E.A to make Skill-moves more effective not too much but buff them a little bit because in 18 they're far too underpowered & they need to remove these Auto actions, Auto blocks inside the box and make Defending more skilled.
But my main issue with FIFA18 is the passing.. it's SOOOOO Easy to keep the ball... literally an absolute alien could keep the ball passing is so assisted they need to make less assisted, make it like FIFA16 where you actually had to face the way you were facing, no 180 unrealistic passes & stupid spin animations.
Lastly.. the tackling system... The amount of times you can read your opponents pass and you get there get your foot to the ball and it just bounces back to your opponent more often than not.. yes you're not always going to get the ball but the bounce backs are so random the game is too unrealistic.
