The latest Title Update for FIFA 20 is now available on Console & on PC and includes the changes listed here.

Would you be okay with removing the 'nutmeg' animation from FIFA all together?

It seems to serve no purpose other than introduce another random element into the game. It doesn't matter whether you're controlling the player or it's AI, holding 'jockey' or otherwise. There's seemingly no rhyme or reason for why players get nutmegged but everybody agrees it happens far too frequently.

I'd prefer if it was just removed from all future FIFA's.

    Yeah, I hate when I'm in the perfect place to block a pass, and my player stops running with his legs open and let's the ball roll through his legs...

    And add what? An invisible barrier? Horrible idea. I agree it needs working on, but removing the fact humans have legs that aren’t glued together seems rather dumb.

    What's a nutmeg? I presume out of the context it's the ball through the legs?

    Was more thinking to just have the players control the ball/kick it away (depending on their dribbling/defending stats and the speed of the ball) when it comes at them. There's too much rng involved in this game as it is to have the game consistently decide when you should concede a counter attack due to a nutmeg.

    Yeah and the animation that players do when the ball hits them and they get 'stunned' allowing opponents to get the rebound and shoot the equalizing shot inside the penalty box.

    Yeah I guess the further down the rabbit hole you go, it just turns out the game sucks..

    It’s either the nutmeg anymation or the opposing player simply dinks it over my defender when I know full well he just pressed pass

    This is one of the most annoying things, the game just randomly decides to do a chipped pass because it's the only possible way to get it by the defender. People just get rewarded constantly for bad passes. If I see a passing lane blocked, I don't pass it there, other people are like "The AI will take care of this pass for me" *proceeds to bounce off the defender for a perfect through ball for the striker 😂
