I've played a lot of FIFA games and watched a lot of European football, so I believe this isn't football.
I've come to understand when dealing with players with great pace your tactics as a team should not allow room for passes which will give players with pace the chance to utilize their speed (this I learned from tv). So I use a Conte 3-4-3 in fifa 18 or I know you heading to the goal post so I just eliminate every possible threat of conceiving a goal (predicting the opposition in a manner at which I also intend to score) I don't need to always chase you, you want the ball in my net, I am waiting. This worked for me no matter the team I am up against in fifa 17 and 18.
Now in fifa 19 I don't have to be realistic and tactical because in FIFA 19 my slow CB would just catch up with the fastest of players and push them over without a card. My question, then why is there a speed stat. Why do European teams want quality wingers with speed?why do we get excited when messi/cr7/hazard etc beat the defense line and run toward a one-on-one situation with the goal keeper?why does Modric always want to connect a long through ball for CR7 or Bale?...its all Speed..in order to counter such a situation. You stop that pass from happening.
FIFA 17 and 18 shooting was kind of fantastic. If you are a good player controlling a good striker of the ball. You get a good chance of scoring. If you're not a good fifa player. Deal with it.
In reality you don't expect Messi Cr7 Kane etc to regularly miss a clear opportunity. My question? Why was the shooting of fifa 19 made so silly they either totally go off target or float in the air(even when you do them right)? What was wrong with the previous mechanism? I am not Cr7 but I am controlling him. I am deciding his thoughts but I don't necessary have to possess his skill to shoot the ball properly. That is why anyone picks a team with quality players. You hardly see anyone wish to go to England Div2 to pick a team against Man City.
In fifa 17 and 18 through pass was unrealistic. It never went anywhere but the front of the player with pin point accuracy. I believe was done to eliminate the threat of pace. Then now it's back but useless because anyone can catch the fastest wingers in the world. My question. Why are the EA team so unrealistic and inconsistent? Why can't they just make it like it is in reality?
I am done. If they can't give me a real football game where a better player is a better player and can't stop considering players who should accept they are below in the skill chain. Why keep buying and playing thrash? Where better players will still learn the game a beat the weaklings yet again.
It's just a vicious circle of stupidity. So I am selling this to those who like things being nerfed so they can compete.
