Does the curve stat effect the curve of finesse shots?

Never actually seen clarification on this from EA, I see people talk about curve and it being important for shooting but it's in the passing category so does it just matter when it comes to the curve of passes?

    Don’t think it affects shooting at all. It only affects passing, crossing and possibly free kicks I think.

    I always assumed it did.

    Pretty sure this is true

    Sonolado last year must’ve had 110 curve. He scored the most amazing finesse shots against me every freaking game.

    It affects the shot for sure. But my question is what if they have the finesse shot trait.

    I’m sure EA said in their pitch notes that it doesn’t affect shooting.
    Some guy on reddit did tests and there was barely a noticeable difference between curve 1 and 99 on shots.

    @EA_Andy @EA_Lanna @EA_DarDar @EA_Cian @EA_Leeloo Is there any official EA post you know of where they clarify what each stat actually does?

    Damn I swear I read the pitch notes and said it did. May be confusing it with the trait pitch note. I gotta find that reddit post

    when you see werner bend them in you tend to believe it really doesn't matter for shooting, which makes 0 sense ofcourse but yeah seems like its only for passing. spotm reus has 95 curve but doesn't make his finesses outrageous for example, he shoots lasers anyways.

    It’s only for passing.

    I think trait is more important. But curve is needed

    This. It's listed under passing for a reason. It's how well your player can pass around obstacles and do creative passes. Especially with crosses and lobbed through balls.

    Nope Zero. It’s list under passing ffs. Finesse shots are affected by finishing, long shots and shot power. And of course the mighty Finesse shot trait. Curve has zero impact

    Strange cause finesse shots with shaqiri will really curvy compared t any player I've shot with. ish curves so much it almost comes back in the direction it left

    It doesn't matter if if it listed under passing. If it affects both shooting and passing, they have to put the 'curve' stat under one or the other. They can't place it under both.

    Also... it affects free kicks. I don't see why they wouldn't apply the same logic to a normal shot.

    There is not confirmation for either side, I'm not sure how/why people are giving definitive answers.

    You can test this out manually in the offline menus. Go to edit player and try it with zero curve and then 99 curve in the practice arena and see if there is any difference. I couldn’t see any when I tried it with mbappe .

    For sure there is difference
  • The only thing that impacts finesse is if you're doing a no-look green timed shot from the dumbest angle possible. No other stats matter

    I'm sure I read extremely recently, possibly in patch notes when they changed finesse accuracy, that curve doesn't change the intended target of a finesse shot but it does change the trajectory from which it moves from a to b.

    So if you do a bunch of tests in shooting drills you'll hit the same corner of the goal with 1 and 99 curve, ergo it could be argued that it doesn't impact shooting.

    But obviously in a real situation with defenders and a keeper trying to reach the ball you may have more chance of whipping it round them with higher curve. That was my understanding.

    Short answer is there's not.

    Longer answer is it's something that we're working on with the gameplay team to produce in the form of a pitch notes article. These things do tend to take some time, especially with the attributes as they're quite detailed in what each does.

    So I can't give you a time frame for something like this, we want to get that info out, just not sure when it may be.

    No offence @ea_andy but is this just a bunch of polite customer service lingo for "we're never telling you, it's better for us if you don't know."

    It's not like FIFA is a new game and there's plenty of attributes on players that have been there years that aren't obvious what they do. Curve, aggression, composure, attacking positioning, vision, all the mental stats mostly. The community is left guessing what they mean.

    That's not a new thing, it's been that way forever. It really wouldn't take an extensive amount of time for the devs to give a short overview of what attributes do in basic gameplay, it's not like anyone's asking for specific formulae.

    An intern could knock it up in their lunch break.

    It's just whether or not you actually want it to be common knowledge what everything on a card does. It took long enough to publish what chemistry styles even do.

    Don’t think it affects shooting from what I read before
    It’s only comes into play on set plays and passing

    I think trait is more important. But curve is needed

    Saul has the finesse shot trait but 63 curve, how does that work then?

    Noone knows how since his finishing also isnt high.

    As for curve, it only affects passing. Of course it would be logical if it would affect shooting, finesse especially since you need to curve the ball to make it deadly but it doesnt work that wayin Fifa. That led me to believe chemistry styles actually make a difference since mids with low finishing or somewhere in mid 70s regularly score finesse shots from outside the box.

    You're right, the community is left guessing which is why we want a proper detailed article about it.

    I haven't tried to spin you a customer service line, I've answered the question. There isn't anything currently, we'd like that to change.

    There's a lot more to it than "this one thing does thing one thing".

    I think finesse shot trait is more important than curve stat. Matuidi scored so many timed finesse shots for me. His curve is very low, but he got finesse shot trait. On the other hand, scream Blind has 96 curve, no trait, I don’t remember him scoring a single timed finesse, even tho I tried few times with his strong left foot.
