Optimistically trying and starting a serious discussion on passing ...

I have played around 20 games on FUT and 10 H2H.

Generally I like the game, especially H2H, but I have an issue with a couple of things:

- passing: I like the fact you can no longer ping pong pass, and I like the fact the you need to face the right direction before passing. I also like the fact that LB+Y no longer works (EA may have exaggerated a bit on that, it is now totally impossible to use it, but ok, the important thing was to prevent abuse, which was really annoying, so fine). What I really have an issue with are:

(1) if there are more than one player on the line of passing, 90% of the times the pass tries to reach the more distant player, even if you apply little pressure on the pass button;

(2) the addressee of the pass standing there waiting for the pass while the defenders advance and intercept the ball (sorry I don't know the word in English for that, but I am pretty sure you get what I mean);

(3) passes are very slow (which often leads to (2)), unless you use the new driven pass (R1+pass);

- pressure: most FUT (not H2H) games are a pressure feast (they all look like a D1 FUT15 game in that respect), and the new passing system (which as I said I like, except for the few issues above) does not help. Players have endless stamina and can happily press and double-press all game, which is a bit unrealistic.

Now let's give DOG and his friends a couple of post to troll with their "you are bad" etc, and then let's hear your views guys.

    Ive only played four games online so cant comment on too much but I do know that LB &Ys arent impossible they just need to be timed perfectly and with the right amount of power. In the few games I did play I managed a few Beckhamesque cross field over the top through balls that just looked exquisite. Overall I like the passing and the fact the game forces you to make a pass just to keep the ball sometimes rather than every pass trying to be an assist.

    Just use the new passing with purpose (RB/R1) when you pass.

    Passing is terrible this year. They rightfully nerfed no-scope 40m LBYs and stuff like that, but pass power, direction and target is completely unreliable and random.

    You can lightly tap the button and it makes a 30m pass to whoever it decides, or fill the power bar and it does a weak-❤️❤️❤️❤️ 10m pass that any player can intercept.

    They had to make up a new mechanic with a 2-button combination for strong passes because the regular passing system doesn't work.

    And people think this game is great :D

    Absolutely terrible passing, terrible. As someone who plays possession every year, this year is by far the worst.

    Auto-interceptions + awful passing = constant turnovers.

    I like passing this year. You have to pick your passes and weight them correctly to advance.

    However, my only issue with it is that normal passes (i.e. non-driven passes - the RB one) are often too slow and easy to intercept.

    I tend to agree, though I still think (or at least hope!) it is also a matter of getting used to it.

    And as someone was suggesting, maybe using the R1+pass more (though my issue is not with long, deep passes, it is ok that they are not always successful, the problem is when I try and pass to a player who is 5m away and the system tries a 30m pass instead)

    (2) is the one that infuriates me. My player is between the defender and the ball, I hold he stick towards the ball, the defender still runs around him and intercepts while he stands there contemplating his own digital mortality.
