I haven't really seen this mentioned but chipped through balls are extremely inconsistent for me. If you try to tap it the game will sometimes play it a short distance as intended, but then at other times the ball will be drilled way beyond were you would reasonably expect it to.
Also if I want it played across field for an open man to run on to it will more often than not massively under-hit it, even if I hold it for a long time. I've tried manual and assisted and still have the same problem. Anyone else experiencing this?
