Introducing The Pitch Notes | Gameplay Deep Dive

Comments

  • 1. Goalkeepers were quite average on fifa 18 even De gea wasn't brilliant so make them more like fifa 15. As another thing is that you score too many goals in fifa 18 especially when world cup mode came out. And it's not enjoyable
    2. Need more realistic gameplay so you can't just one touch pass it everywhere because the people who are best at the game don't even play real football.
    3. Ultimate team is great as you build your team up to be one of the best. But when you are in a division like division 5 and you have a pretty decent team and you come up again a person with TOTY and informs it is only because of fifa points and so people like me and quite a few more players have no answer to it. I think fifa points should go all together because you should build your team up not have a legends team in like division 7.
    4. In ultimate team can you have an option to switch a players position to their secondary position if they have any. So Azplicueta played RB LB under Di Matteo and Mourinho and CB under Conte so if he is a CB and we don't have a RB in the team or not a very good RB could we switch him from CB to RB.
    5. A.I on pro clubs are really bad have no sense of how to play football like never pass to a marked player or when you're in open space tell the keeper to pass it and it takes him 10 seconds before he releases it when your marked.
    6. Have all stadiums for lower league English teams. Just what I thought.
    7. Players slipping when it is raining.
    8. Bring back the knee slide! Was in Fifa 17 but not 18? Not the fail not the knee slide to sit, the knee slide like Drogba it's a popular celebration too many dancing celebrations in Fifa 18 more old fashion like knee slide.
    9. Update all transfers before the game comes out. So if you want to start a career mode with default squads you can.
    10. Not matching up a team in division 3 example fighting for relegation against a division 1 team who can win the title if they win or draw. We can see that if you look them up.
    11. The A.I need to make more mistakes and be more human like. So for example Carlisle United can't play the ball around like Barcelona because that is what it felt like in fifa 18.
    12. Finally get rid of the script!

    I think that fifa 18 is the worst fifa on PS4 and Xbox One generation and one of the worst fifas in a while for me. Fifa 17 was good 16 was alright and FIFA 15 was great as liked that the goalkeepers could actually test you.

    Thank you if you read this EA looking forward to 28th September when it drops

    Hey all,

    Where as this is not a suggestion topic - we still appreciate a lot of the great feedback you guys are giving here!

    To answer a couple of the specific questions on the gameplay announcements I've seen so far:

    Q: Curious to know how the plan for pressing the shoot button again for timed finishing will work when you already have to press the shoot button twice for a driven shot.
    Does this mean driven shots no longer exist? Or is it that you’d need to hit shoot 3 times to execute a timed, driven shot?

    A: Low Driven Shots have been moved to a different button mechanic. (I'm going to explain this with Xbox buttons because that's what I personally play on but you can sub in the PS buttons... you get the idea). Moving forward, Pressing LB+RB+Shoot (along with power) will perform a low-driven. You can also perform low-headers using this method (LB+RB+Shoot). Volleys now have the option of being manually chosen using LT+Shoot (and separated from headers).

    Q: Will the accuracy options apply to free kicks? They have been dreadful to control the last couple years You used to be able to lock your trajectory down, but it's a mess now if the stick slips at all. It's way easier to score from play from outside the box than from a free and this is the exact opposite of what it should be.

    A: In terms of free kicks, accuracy and direction has been tuned and addressed in FIFA 19. On top of this, Players can now move their keeper’s position manually in order to prepare for incoming AI or user free kicks. There is no timed shooting on free kicks though.

    Q: Can you please give us some news on whether or not you’ll be improving career mode

    A: We’ll have more information on Career Mode and other modes in FIFA 19 soon. We’ve already announced that the full UEFA license, including Champions League and Europa League are integrated into Career Mode fully, this year.

    Keep the questions coming. For now, lets keep them specific to the features that we've announced and wait to see what else is coming down the line :smile:

    My only concern @EA_Aidan is that yes, most people have misinterpreted this topic, but maybe there's enough people banging on the drum here to make your team realise there's clearly a lack of community engagement from EA Sports in relation to FIFA.
    FIFA is huge.

    The reason why everyone is firing suggestions & off topic comments over is because the community engagement is non-existent. As previously mentioned in this thread, everyone just sees 'EA dev' and starts keyboard warrioring.
    Posting up patch notes on a forum a few times a year is not engaging with your community.

    I also don't understand how you guys run betas year in, year out, including playtesting at your studios, yet still there's historical problems with this game. So many good suggestions just get ignored. Same again this year, really. Whilst I'm hopeful your new changes this year are well developed & thoughtful, I'm not sure what feedback you can expect us to give if we can't play the game yet either.

    I won't take it off track any further, but for the sake of the entire community, please have a serious re think of how you engage with the community going forward. It really isn't much to ask for - I'm sure EA have more than enough money to throw at it.

    Just to be clear, even though adding Champions League is great, most of us are not really going to consider that a Career Mode improvement since it was technically already in the game, just under a fake name. We want other things added and have been saying so for years, so I hope that's not what you're hanging your hat on for FIFA 19.

    Can someone please direct me to the Pitch Notes for career mode and starheads?

    This forum seems like its about gameplay, which is amazing, but I know many gamers want career mode and starhead features to have dramatic improvements too. Is there a forum for that anyone? @EA_Aidan

    If you made the shoot button twice- it should make sense! So, you need to either remove a single shot press or when you press a single shot-shots must be manual! That is, or you press a shot once, but you have to calculate the strength and direction or you can press the shoot button twice and get to the green scale! It will be equivalent! Since in both cases will need time to shoot! In General, the shots should primarily affect the direction of impact, so that the computer is minimal in this helped! At the moment, in FIFA 18, the player does not aim, does not count, but simply presses the shot button and easily scores a goal! This is not very interesting and arcade! And it does not affect that you are pressured by defenders.

    Through ball (XBOX-button Y) should only be manual in the game! The computer should not run the player one-on-one with the goalkeeper! This should depend on the skills of the player and not computer help! I want to compete with the skills of the player, not with auto control!

    I know it’s a bit off topic but,
    @EA_Aidan we know the CL/EL is in career mode this year, but yet we don’t know a thing how it’s implemented..

    Can we see changing sleeve badges?
    UEFA player of the year?
    UEFA five year ranking?
    Club ranking?
    More stats?

    Only thing we know is that there’s a drawing scene .. we appreciate the pitch notes a lot and things getting better, but talking about more tranperancy and not explain how CL will be like in career mode is a bit bad

    I doNt understand. You publish a pitch note to say that you are listening to the commu. The gameplay broadcast is almost exactly like the 18, for must people the worst game in the series. 2 of many defect can easily fixable can not be changed. Such is balance of the game at the time of the kickoff the attack is overpowered. The corners to the first post abuse effectively ... since the 17 we find these pb. The developers apart from killing themselves invented new modes for FUT, what are they for?

    @EA_Aidan so there’s only one person to do the back and forth between us the consumers and you EA the developers ie yourself. Do you not see what is wrong with this picture? Your company is actively shutting out the community telling us to post elsewhere is completely irrelevant this is where we get feedback nowhere else has anyone ever responded properly to our questions. Get over yourself and your company and address these changes. Your “game” (moneygrab) releases in 9 weeks and you still haven’t shown ANYTHING about career mode. There is no excuse for this accept the reality your only just now beginning to work on it which is unacceptable. Your company has enough money for a separate team to be actively working on the game from the release of Fifa 18. What is happening with pack weight? Is it feasible to spend 1000$ on the game and receive no icons? I guarantee this is the case. Is it assumed that you have made even more regressions instead of progressions to career mode? It is as you have not made any announcements. You already should know the improvements being made to career mode the fact you don’t shows how **** backwards this company is. You have to hound developers to figure out changes? Stop lying there are no significant changes your game is a money grab bent on sucking the soul out of football. If you can’t even fix a button delay in an offline mode why would we expect anything positive? We can’t and you have failed us again.

    By the way WE KNOW YOU BOUGHT RIGHTS TO EVEN MORE LEAGUES WOW OMG. This isn’t actually gameplay or mechanics merely visuals. Get over yourself @EA_Aidan
    I guarantee you will not see changing armband as they will claim this is a licensing issue with licensing being given only to those teams currently in those leagues, the reason they are “waiting” to announce changes is there are still champions league and other league playoffs happening, the “announcements” are merely stating which teams will get armbands. Prove me wrong

    You literally responded to someone backing you up saying “I care buddy” yeah you care about your sensitive **** ego not the majority of people here demanding change. See y’all on PÉS 2019
    @EA_Aidan @EA_Andy where are you Andy? Seriously it’s like searching for a needle in a haystack to see your activity and response to forums. You need sleep? Yeah so do I after playing 40 games in a weekend did you address this? Will you ? Do you care? Care about these comments not people boosting your ego you sods.

    Hey all,

    Where as this is not a suggestion topic - we still appreciate a lot of the great feedback you guys are giving here!

    To answer a couple of the specific questions on the gameplay announcements I've seen so far:

    A: We’ll have more information on Career Mode and other modes in FIFA 19 soon. We’ve already announced that the full UEFA license, including Champions League and Europa League are integrated into Career Mode fully, this year.

    Keep the questions coming. For now, lets keep them specific to the features that we've announced and wait to see what else is coming down the line :smile:

    Well, that's kind of obvious, nothing really surprising... I would not even consider that as an answer
  • Don't harass the guy who comes to answer some questions. It's not his fault the company only cares about appeasing the stockholders and keeping its gambling loot. I think it's a safe bet we are not going to see much other the UEFA license, if they won't listen to the biggest requests from the FUT people for a change to Weekend League or the addition of FIFA street they aren't going to do much with career mode. This game has failed so much this generation. For me the no World Cup game and the continued arrogance and sticking with the same tired patterns of promotion, silence and phony secrecy is enough. Oh and 98% of us don't care about esports or FUT celebrities please stop that.

    CAREEEER. MODE CAREEEER MODE CAREEER MODE!

    Come on!

    Big Improvements, more managerial options..not few update.

  • Having a simple reconnect function in the game would help a lot of your customers, its a simple fix. Every year you keep adding cool functions to the new fifa release but still they fail to add such a simple function that would help everyone to get a better experience when playing the game.


    Please add an online function similar to this:

    1. When disconnecting a timer pop up giving the disconnected player 1-2 min to reconnect to the match.
    2. If the disconnected player reconnects within 1-2 min the game resumes as usual
    3. If the disconnected player does not reconnect within the time frame, the match is listed as a loss for the player who disconnected.
    4. Maximum 2 disconnects per match.
  • Please add more Ligue 1 scans: Lyon and Marseille.
    Please add more stadiums outside the BPL (Groupama Stadium, Matmut-Atlantique for Ligue 1, San Paolo for Serie A, San Mamés for LaLiga, BayArena for Bundesliga, etc...)

    I know it's a gameplay feedback, the gameplay videos scared me: the rhythm of the gameplay is too fast, the night lighting is too dark, it's just FIFA 18 with some adds.

    EA promised the Parc Olympique Lyonnais (now it's called Groupama Stadium) for this year. I am an Olympique Lyonnais fan, and i will be very disappointed if the Groupama Stadium is missing in FIFA 19.

    I even hesitate to buy FIFA 19 if Groupama Stadium is not present. You'll tell me "just for a stadium?", But you promised it to the FIFA community last year that this stadium will be present for FIFA 19! I'll be feeling betrayed by EA (like other players).
