What do you think? Since the incoming nerf to finesse I am trying to play more with power shots and first time power shots.. I must say its working rather well.. To be honest every dog knows to move the GK especially where u are far right or far left..

But blasting power shots is really effective.. Worst case scenario u get a corner

Especially if the player has 99 shot power 99 finishing..

    I think he means just regular old first time shots with some power on.
    Like pass > shoot.

    If so, I think first times are pretty good no matter if you’re using power or finesse. So yeah.

    Just holding down the button to 3 bars and unleashing it.. If you can timed finish it even better...

    Since everybody is expecting a finesse shot you blast normal power shots ..

    R1+L1 is good if u are near post so u shoot opposite..


    I just find power shots soo good now.. Everybody is moving the GK so Finesse shot is not that op anymore but powering them through nothing can be done about it

    It went from first time finesse shots far post, to now near post power shots due to people expecting finesse shots.

    Double bluff is real now. At high level you have 1-2 chances per half and you still have to play mind games after that

    Been doing great with power shots this weekend league using FB Zlatan and TOTY De Bruyne. So many quit outs as well after they move the goalie anticipating a finesse shot.

    They work even better if the 1st time long shot comes from a through ball. ;)

    I find sometimes this ❤️❤️❤️❤️ is the worse shot to mistime, even slightly.

    I was at penalty spot distance slightly mistimed with Perisic and it didn't even go for goal kick.

    I have been using and scoring them in front of goal though.

    I hit one off a through ball so hard it came out the TV and smashed a hole in my wall.

    I hope they're not nerfing first timed finesse in the box???

    As that would be ridiculous.

    Yea its total disgrace..

    I can mistime a finesse shot and it will still go in/hit the post or get a corner..

    Mistime a normal shot and the guy doesnt even hit it ..

    The game is actually the same, just every year a new op mechanims to promote a new game, why does it have all the same bugs/glitches over years? Same engine and on the top the mighty servers, i guess they need to build i totally new game and/or buying new servers or we gonna see similar gameplay over the next years.

    Isn't L1 + R1 driven shot? I saw people saying heading also apply L1 +R1 to be powerful. Is it true there is driven heading?

    First touch power shots have always been good in any fifa. This is nothing new.

    Ya’ll are just so used to abusing one thing and you think thats the only thing that works.

    Btw. Stop saying meta.

    For me normal shot is also effective. Just press shoot when u face the goal... Have just used timed finesse 1ce and 1 timed shot... So thats 2/7... Norma shots usually go in if u r close to the goal and face the goal

    The new meta is stop trying to find a Meta and just play the god almighty game. It's so embarrassing seeing everyone trying to clamor for an exploit. Like honestly, the nerf on finesses isn't even that huge so long as you're in a good position and good angle. Secondly timed finesses have the same margin of error as timed power so if power shots are still effective, so are timed finesses. So much overreaction, not enough reading and understanding.

    Very well said sir

    I am fed up of seeing this stupid community asking what is meta or trying to tell us something is meta.

    "i scored a header today with Ibra, heading is the new meta"

    The guy is 6ft5 and built like a building, yea i think he might be alright in the air.
