So it does actually feel like they've turned back the decision no reduce the AI defending and constant pressure as it is all anyone is using now.
I have now noticed that when i'm playing a team that are running around at 100 mph for the whole game, when i look down to see how their stamina is going, the indicator that shows their players name and fitness bar disappears at about 50 mins.
It's almost like the game is saying "i know your opponent is running about flat out, their stamina should be drained but we're too embarrassed to show you that the fitness and stamina bar doesn't make any difference.
Is there a button or setting they are changing that is removing it from my screen? I'm on PS4.
