We play a football game that doesn't know the rules of football

If a player has the ball and gets knocked over by a member of the opposition team who doesn't get anywhere near the ball that is a foul.

If a player is through 1 on 1 with the keeper and a defender sliding tackles them from behind missing the ball this is a foul and a red card. I've had some that didn't even get a yellow.

If a player is through 1 on 1 with the keeper whilst the ref is playing advantage we don't want the stupid free kick from miles out when we could have a 1 on 1 situation.

How hard can it be to make a football game that actually has football rules in it.

    I've never, ever, got away with slide tackling down a player who's through on a goal. Red card every single time. People seem to be able to do it to me and get away with it though. Maybe you have to simultaneously press R3 as you do it or something.

    All things you're mentioned were already in the game, but they removed it year by year.

    Since fifa 16 you'e allowed to slide tackle from behind and mostly don't get a red card.

    Also you couldn't recover from badly timed tackle like you can now, now it's fair play if you stumble a player with one defender and tackle with another, no foul called. It's looks more like pinball than football game.

    Offside rule doesn't seem to apply either. Not really. I've played people office, and I'm talking about like yards offside, yet they go on to score, and the ref just stands there picking their nose.

    Slide tackles are dangerous play in real life but in fifa you can spam it all your want, no penalty for badly timed challenges.

    No mate. When I see a defender start a run, but my defenders are out of position, my only option is to play them offside. Several times, before the ball is passed, the striker is a yard or 3 offside, and it's not called.

    Granted, I play mainly SB, but looking at the replays, there is no question that guy is about 3 miles offside.

    If the person isn’t in play then it shouldn’t be offside... but EA seem to give offside regardless

    being 'in play' is subjective estimation, it's really hard to code that

    Hand balls don't even exist in the world of Fifa 18. Constantly have defenders in the box putting their hands up and blocking shots.

    Was going to put a statement up like this yesterday it's alot of bull **** decisions in game that makes me real angry lol ea sort your **** out every shot or block goes out for a corner completely bull **** a block from a weak shot from like 40 yards gets deflected for corners lol

    Indeed. Though to be fair, I don't actually mind. It's impossible to control your players hands.

    Are taking from experience?(in codes) you think EA devs would struggle to have the proper rule code implemented?

    Offside as to be looked off as it can be given way to soon though i appreciate it can be difficult to code. What annoys me more is when advantage is not given when i have the ball as the defensive side sometimes.
