Well, I understand no one is reading this forum but I want to share my impressions about FIFA 22 Volta mode.
I am a fan of FIFA street since FIFA Street 4 (2012). This game brought so much fun, we loved to get together on weekends with friends and play until the morning. When EA announced Volta in FIFA 20 it was great, we were looking forward to the release. People who never play FIFA bought it just because of the Volta mode. When the game came out, our impressions were slightly spoiled by some decisions of the developers.
1. Only 4 players can play in couch mode on PC
Really? FIFA Steet 2012 has 7 players and PES always has 8 players. Is it really that hard to add a couple more players for a more fun 3v3 or 4v4 local couch play?
2. We cannot play together from the same computer with teams from the Internet
Seriously? Now everyone has to buy their own copy of the game and play from home? You just killed all the fun that people got from each other's emotions while being in one place. Yet again in FIFA Street 4 you can play together with one console against the same teams from all over the world.
3. Volta modes were very unfinished
There is no classic 2v2 "Pana Rules" in the game. And the mode Last Man Standing - "Survival" is terribly boring, because instead of ending with a victory from the goal of the last player, it continues on until the time runs out. You can lose all your players in 30 seconds and play further 1x1 for another 6 minutes, this is terribly stupid
Otherwise, the game was generally good. The physics in VOLTA is really great
Volta 21 did not bring significant changes in the game modes, and the internet game part became even worse due to the fact that the 3v3 mode was removed, and only 5v5 has left
Now let's talk about Volta 22
New modes? Signature Abilities for every player? Sounds cool, but how awful it looks in reality. These Signature Abilities just broke the whole gameplay. That awful sound of taking points, those huge numbers flying out, these colored circles under your feet. This is all terribly distracting from the game. And Signature Abilities just destroyed all the fun, because the game has ceased to be fair. Now competent passes and individual dribbling do not solve anything, because you can turn on a super skill and just run around the entire field in a second, or hit from the other end of the screen and score. Really? Do you seriously think this is fun?
Okay, I admit that some people might like it, but why not leave the classic mode for those who just like to play fair street football? The one that you did in FIFA 20 without all these points and super skills
Just give us the opportunity to play classic Volta with friends from one computer, add more players for the couch play add 2v2 mode and finally fix the mode "Survival" - that's all that the fifa street community asks for. We don't need millions of boots, jackets and pants - I haven't bought any of them in the last 3 years. Volta has a huge potential, please do not f*** up everything
Guys who also like Volta please support us, maybe EA will listen to our wishes
PS: Why is VOLTA ARCADE not available to play with friends in couch mode? I thought the point of this mode was precisely in a fun game on one console / computer. It's strange, I hope this will be fixed in the release version
