Happy people after the patch

I've read a lot of threads about people being happy with the latest patch and a lot of
"AI abusers exposed"
"finally manual defending is rewarded"
and so on.

my question to you and to everyone
1) do you really feel that the AI defending was nerfed ?
2) do you feel that manual defending is rewarded after the patch ?

I've played a lot of games after the patch and I can't see any difference in AI abuse. people still running over my players from behind with CM's and CDM's and the AI controlled CB's are perfectly covering each move I make. and when I get passed the AI controlled CB's and make a shot it will be blocked or hit the post.
I'm not moaning because i'm losing. I still have the same Win to lose ratio. but I was really excited reading all the good feedback from people when I was at work and I thought I'm gonna go home and enjoy a good patch that really punish AI abuse.

Manual defending needs to be rewarded. If I'm making a tackle most of the time the ball bounce to my opponent or stick to the feet of the player with the ball. some and again some of the tackles are really satisfying and rewarded.

I'm not going to talk about constant pressure because I don't use it and I fell less people are abusing it after the patch. but I feel the stamina drain is not affecting much.

let me know your opinion about these two topics.

    I find I am creating and scoring much more after the patch. Find it easier to hold off a player and pass round people who try to press you and run you over.

    Defending I haven’t really noticed a difference to how I normally defend. Tackles still fall back to the opponent. It’s not made clear why this happens though. I could understand if it was due to using a AI defender to tackle as it would stop the constant use of the function if tackling using the AI was inconsistent, but as you say you should be rewarded for defending manually.

    The people who love this patch are the people who over the top through ball abuse or spam crosses, and they're happy that defenders are now donkeys so they can go back to their fifa 18 ways.

    because attackers have much higher reaction stat than defenders

    Can't wait for WL to finish to see where all these patch lovers have finished, did their WL rank improved that much or remained the same.

    All I know is my players have become heavy trucks and passing has become bad, sometimes it doesn't even register a pass but instead does an extra touch only to still not pass it

    Yes and no. Player switching needs fixed asap. Impossible to switch at times to fullbacks when someones playing an lb+y through ball.

    thanks for the feedback everyone
    To be honest. I don't enjoy the games that I play against AI abusers. I feel i'm playing SB and it's the worst thing ever

    Nothing has changed at least imo. Game is garbage as it was before. People still run with Fabinho without selecting another player for a full match, stamina drain idk maybe it was fixed, rebounds werent fixed, ball is still constantly rebounding back to my opponents everywhere, manual defending isnt rewarding by any means.

    Tbh I dont believe anything has changed with this patch :joy:

    I don't really care if my position changes, I enjoy the game more and find it more rewarding now, and that's what it's all about for me.

    I found the AI abuser.

    whatever changes have been made do not change the fundamental feel of the game. The overriding feel that random events play too big a part has not gone. There is very little regard for mastering things other than timed shooting.


    I get some fun out of it but nowhere near what I would if I felt rewarded for good play and punished for bad play - AND IT ALL ACTUALLY LOOKED LIKE FOOTBALL

    LOL nothing has changed what so ever. Tackling forwards with what we all know would be deemed as a solid stand tackle will fall back directly into their paths.
    AI Abuse is still a joke and will never change. People running around with a CM/CDM refusing to control any other player will never be fixed and manual defending will never be rewarded.
