Who is having fun playing Fifa 19?

I know I am!

Fifa 18 was the worst Fifa I have ever endured but I am really liking Fifa 19.

It actually feels rewarding to score in this game after working the ball around in midfield looking for openings instead of just running past everybody with my pacey wingers.

The game definitely isn't perfect but finally we have a game where you actually have to try and play football instead of being able to do less than 3 passes from defence to attack and then score with the impossible to save low driven shot.

If EA sort out the overhead kicks and OP headers, I think this year will be a great Fifa experience.

    Shooting.
    Passing.
    Auto switching.
    50/50's.
    Button delay.
    Interceptions.

    Other than that stupid side foot shot I don't think shooting needs touching, especially if it results in that low driven ****.

    What's wrong with the passing? It's not so assisted anymore so that's great.

    The others you listed I've not really experienced yet so can't really comment other than 50/50's which isn't bugging me all that much to be honest.

    The shooting is so inconsistent.

    Passing is dreadful the weight of the passing vary each game no consistency with this again.

    50/50 isn't 50/50 more like 90/10 in favour of attacker, no matter how many tackles you put in the "50/50" magically ends up with the attacker.

    And yeah on that point tackling is also a mess

    @MarkusG packing both Eusabio 93 and Ronaldo 94 would certainly add to the enjoyment! ;) :joy:

  • Love it.

    Side foot shooting thing needs to be sorted though I agree

    Love it.

    Yep. This is the only thing that needs adjusting and just slightly tone down the ai defending but do not touch pace or passing!

    It's a lot better. Played over 50 games so far and have not felt like a game was not winnable. Problem with 18 was you would have a game where everything fell into place then the next your team couldn't string 2 passes together.

    Minuses to me are the 45 and 90 minute goals. Also missing open goals then having Pique score a flying over head kick and someone like Bakayoko scoring 30 yard screamers with shooting stats below 50. How can Giroud put headers nearer the corner flag. Shooting needs shooting. Also the auto switching can be frustrating

    My only complaints are the OP headers and high pressure also seems somewhat OP. Other than that so far it's a good gme

    My only complaints are the tackling/rebounding system and over powered AI defending. Except for that most enjoyable FIFA since 13 for me

    Switching players on defense and OP headers are the only issues as of right now imo.

    I wouldn’t touch a thing. It’s finally an almost perfect game.

    ive only watched streams.

    the game itself looks awesome, lots to do now. but the actual match gameplay looks really boring. slow awkward player movements. very strange shooting with the side foot. fast players seem to get caught up even with huge head starts.

    my main issue is the cost of the game. its a £20 game at most.

    what happened to the days of getting fifa from sainsburys on release day for £20. :(

    Besides all the known issues it also feels very repetitive

    Not sure how you find “working for your goals” rewarding when your opponent constantly scores ridiculous rebounds and corner bicycle kicks. There’s no skill in that. Every game is about who can exploit it the most.

    This game truly is woeful. Right now I’m just trading on it. I don’t even wanna play a game because it’s unplayable. The corner thing is by far the worst thing in it. Next to that “Timed Finishing” garbage. I want my driven shots back.
