After Fifa21 I had no hopes that EA will ever release a game that involves any football logic. Where AI is varied, unpredictable and fun to play against.
Beta did not show much of a promise, but to my surprise - full release is amazing. Dont get me wrong - its not a perfect game by any means, but coming from F21 this is brilliant.
Pace of the game is nice, its challenging, you have to work for your goals and AI team mates are not zombies anymore!
EA - I know you have a lot of FUT players giving out about pace, that its too slow, boring etc.
But just focus on the bugs for the moment.
Give them time to learn the game. Its a new approach, it requires using your head, not just fast fingers. This is how it should be!
If you are planning to patch the game up - speed it up, dumb down AI, remove physicality - please give us a fighting chance here. There's so many casual and Career Mode players and competitive/FUT gameplay simply does not work in CM.
I have always said that you cant keep everyone happy. And thats why we really need separate gameplay. Like you used to have - Arcade and Simulation.
Sliders are just not enough anymore.
Its an old system that hasnt been updated for ages.
Fifa is much too complex to tweak it with sliders, coz now we also need to change AI from competitive/braindead AI to realistic Career Mode AI.
We would need
- Defense Awareness Slider (so AI team mates are not just traffic cones)
- AI aggression Slider (to get more fouls)
- Stamina Drain Slider (so we can lower Acceleration to less than 48 without breaking Stamina and never see any fatigue)
All this matters for Career Mode players.
Also - why cant we create Custom Difficulty? Every difficulty has its own Sliders. Why cant we increase AI awareness and AI pressure without turning AI into Clinical Terminators?
You have taken a very brave step with Fifa22, EA. But please - Dont reverse back to this soulless experience of Fifa21, where only 1 player was active at the time and the rest of your team were traffic cones.
And if you do - please give us Separate Gameplay, or at least the option to choose a Version of the Gameplay we want to play offline, like your other titles have.
Thank you for your efforts.
