    So come in this thread and see orison is now a water boy for Benn, great to see you moving up pal

    Moving up from ending your Fifa career? You must have some really low self-esteem if you value the importance of yourself even below copying and pasting Benn's posts :trollface:

    Pugz ended his own career tho

    Timed shooting is completely pointless unless they make us use it, it’s far easier to score with it turned off, no ones gonna make the game harder to play than it needs to be.

    It's nothing like on the demo where you could actually use it to score bangers from impossible angles. It was basically the "last hope" of scoring.

    On the full game it's incredibly weak, you can hit the thing in the green all you want it doesn't seem to really increase your chances of scoring. I tried a few longshots with Radja yesterday, hit them in the green and all that happened was me hitting the post back to back to back :joy:

    It does feel very weak I agree, I am dominating opponents first half but can’t score, switch it off at half time and end up winning 4/5-0.

    Kinda hope they don’t make us use it for champs, because I don’t like how the shooting feels.

    Some of the longshot animations just look awkward and unusual aswell.

    Quite pleased with the gameplay, apart from with the shooting.

    Shooting is glitched imo. There is the weird sidefoot glitch where your player sidefoots it and produces a 3kph pee roller and then there is also complete randomness with the arrow. You can aim properly, but the ball doesn't follow your aim, e.g.
    This shot got skied like how low should I point the arrow

    But then this shot with Latza, a messed up timed finish with a guy who's got 55 shooting goes in

    That side foot glitch is really annoying me!

    Ball just loops all over the place :lol:

    I thought it was due to the angle I shot from, but after investigating its definately not.

    That’s what I’ve done, can’t stop scoring now, the goals still look weird, but a goals a goal.

    Really dislike the way shots float past the keeper.

    Timed shooting is up there with the worst idea they’ve put in Fifa tbh. However, I’m under the impression that you cannot turn it off in fut champs, is that correct?

    I’ve also heard this, I really hope it’s not true or I’m in trouble.

    Not sure if EA has ever stated you can or can’t. Surely it shouldn’t be a big deal though because if you have it on and just don’t double tap, everything will be a normal shot anyway?

    I expect them to make us, because other wise the big new feature will never get used.

    It is an issue in certain situations, I have a habit in Fifa of panic smashing B to shoot if a ball rebounds to my player in the box or something like that, which would mean a timed shot and a risk of it going god knows where :joy: .

    This may be something that only i do but I just know eventually it will cost me a goal. :joy:

    I do this on corners and it's really annoying, no idea why they've put it on headers

    You’re right according to how it was explained.

    But for me shooting feels different with it off even if you do normal shots when it’s on.

    I’ve not explained that well at all.

    That’s a fair point. If there’s a rebound or a few weird deflections in the box I’m usually hitting the B button a lot to try and get it lol

    Nah you explained well enough. I may try to turn it off and see how it goes. As it stands, I’m doing all normal shots anyway. I’ve given up on low drivens as well, I can’t score them from the same angles as last year

    I share many of the sentiments here. Can't shoot for **** this year. Those side-foot slow as **** shots are doing my head in. I've seen some people say low drivens are working for them like last year. I can't score one to save my life.

    Packed Boateng in one of those 2 player packs, you think i should sell Manolas and get him in with Neuer or keep Manolas and a serie a keeper?

    Playing from the back removed this year ? Past titles I would pass from my CB to my fullbacks and push up for possession .. my FB's are pushed forward that leaves so many gaps .. help for custom tactics ? Paging @EddieFicio

    I am using 4231/4231(2) .. I am struggling hard right now . Had alot of draws this week due to blowing 1 goal leads with a few minutes left .
