E-Sports and you literally can't win a PK shootout because every shot goes above the bar even on minimal power :D

    The biggest issue is your opponent can see which way you're aiming. I won a shootout 1-0 yesterday ffs

    I’ve had 4 penalties against me, resulting in 4 red cards. I’ve saved all 4. Last minute tackles are well worth it imo.

    Just not true is it lol

    It is. Seems like it depends either on the player you use or it happens for some and not others. Heck, maybe there even is a workaround i am not aware of. But fact remains i have not hit the goal on a penalty in like the last 10 attempts despite pretty much barely tapping the button.

    Yet another reason i prefer rivals, no pointless overtime/shootout.

    I find finessing the penalty helps massively.

    But on the one penalty I didn’t hold finesse with a bar power it went over with if wby. So yeah, they’re rubbish.

    You can tell from the way their players head is looking

    Depends if they know that is a tell and they then change the direction of their pen mid run up

    The player moves his head when you aim the stick lol, it’s ridiculous. Once you know what to look for you’ll save every pen

    It's pretty easy to aim 1 way and then shoot the other way at the last second. :joy:

    Half the time when you do that it doesn’t register the direction change. At least for me. But then I get huge delay problems that most people seem largely unaffected by so idk

    I just tap the shoot button while aiming down the middle then aim into a corner just before my player strikers the ball
