With the Lag in fut18 never sorted imagine the anger you will feel when trying to time that marker in the green.

    does that mean you get the precision bar only when you pres shot quickly with the option to press it second time in the best position on the bar?

    timing bar is only with fifa trainer on, so i'm not that worried. i should be worried if that shot is overpowered

    ah ok in that case I am with you about the worry of overpowered shot, but what could be worse? This year double tap - low driven shot was that much overpowered that I cannot imagine being it even more OP

    Low shots in 18 were op for sure I just see the green bar meaning a tap in could be missed through lag.

    Then in lagging matches you should just shoot like normal. The new "Shot Timing thing" is just a new shot-type. You can still finesse, power shot, low driven ect.

    if you press shoot once its like it is every yr if u choose to press it a 2nd time u are entering the new feature timed shot and the 2nd press needs to be when contact is being made( foot to ball) or close as possible to it if you do it right it will be a special shot .
    if you only press n hold shoot once it will be like every other fifa its not a new feature that everyone has to use its a new feature to add a 2nd option for shooting and to add more variety if u choose to use it .

    as u see in the video in the shooting section a bar comes up where you need to get the 2nd press in the green ( point of contact ) , but that bar only appears if you hit shoot b4 hand , if you only use shoot once at the correct time as usual its not in effect

    also you can turn it off in options if you choose to .
    seems good to have more variations and the video looks good to me .

    It's another "feature" that will lead to even more random outcomes, yay.

    yes m8 pretty much unless you turn off the new timed shot off in options then its all same as b4.
    the timed 2nd press is for power and drives.

    Every shoot is timed. Then what's the point??? You can still finese shot and long shots the same. All you need to do is avoid low driven shots.
    Pls watch the gameplay trailer. Finese shots,volleys etc was timed shoots. Every shot won't go in anymore. Not just double tap. So happy

    its not mandatory its an option u can have off or on .
    keep reading or listening yourself m8.
    all shot types are timed yes if you choose to do it that way however you can turn it off in options for one and secondly if you press once and not a 2nd time its a normal shot.
    your preaching to sum one whos tried the demo lmao , also a tip do not try to land the bar in the green just 2nd press as u see the player about to impact.

    as chu says its risk reward if you attempt it but you can still one press shoot and you can still low driven and so on .
    its a choice for a more spectacular shot but not a everyone must do it.
    also he dont even mention that u can switch it off completly .

    It shouldn't be available on WL mode, there is enough assistance as it is.

    Nice, you played the demo mayne? Two questions for you... what does R1/RB do now that standard shot without timing bar is a slower more finesse looking shot? Also, did you feel like you were quicker with the ball? Looked like on the gameplay vids that it was easier to get around and away from defenders.

    Also, with low driven no longer being double tap timing, did you botice that you could just smash low drivens or was it kinda nerfed where you'd need to get the power bar involved to get the fifa 18 power kind of low drivens?

    Not really happy about the fact you need the trainer on to have the shot timer thing on your screen. I personally hate the arrow that comes with the trainer so hopefully there is an option to have the bar but no arrow, but its EA we're talking about so its probably both or nothing.

    Will have to put time in early to learn shooting with the trainer on and then just take it all off as that arrow is really off-putting.

    I talking about weekend league bro. If we can get switch if off online then everybody will switch it off and just finese shot with Messi,Dybala and score every time. Then it defeats it's purpose and will be useless.

    But why turn it off if you dont need to use it? Just dont double tap lol. And what's prob going to happen is it's going to be too strong to be worth turning off. Like im new (est may 19) and dont do low drivens. That's fine, I get by just fine without it but I know im missing a hige advantage I could have if I mastered it.

    I dont think its going to be like switching back to 18 shooting if you do turn off. You just wont have the option to do a timed shot. From what I gather, the new shot without the bar isnt a rocket shot. So if you want to nang it in far post you need to use the shot bar on longshots to have a higher rate of success

    Yea I hope too. In like 2k you can have it on to learn then turn it off. You will know if your timing is off because it will hit the guy selling popcorn in the stands

    so shooting without the timed finish ( normal, 1 press) felt a tad nerfed more like a finess or lower power shot.
    with the timed press if hit correctly( point of contact or in the green on the bar) was a great contact and super strike 9/10 times a gol ( but not to easy to get right all the time risk reward m8.) if you mess it up its a row z or a shocking contact .
    it can be used on all types of shots i.e headers volleys drives .
    low driven is now L1 and R1 plus shoot on ps and tbh i dont use a great deal but didnt feel as op as this yr.
    player movement and close control with the new animations and so on felt so much better and looked better with more ways to to dribble, move touch and get away from players.

    i dont want to jynx but as it is only a demo and not a full game i was very optimistic after it felt new and very good . i think the game will be alot better , , more fun and a big step fw this year but in general its alot to do with how the community play and try to abuse the mechanics this is always a major factor towards bad gameplay, but we will see hopefully we get time to adjust ect and learn the game with no stupid early patches because kids are crying b4 theyve even tried.

    Nice man! Appreciate the insight. You know what holding justR1 and shoot does? Still a finesse shot? Or different?

    This sounds horrible to me, feels like something that will be easy to perfect when you've played enough games.
