So you must spam timed finesse in order to get Elite?

No hate for the guy but he uploaded highlights showing us how he scored about 50 time finesses in his WL. :) Fantastic game!

    As soon as I reach Gold3 level (14 wins) almost everyone plays like you.
    No crosses, all chances are built trying to have a player (not necessarily a very technical one) able to shoot a timed finesse from outside the goal area. If they're able to make some more pass while I use every player to make them impossible to shoot, they pass it to the FW and with an instant shoot it's almost alywas a goal.

    Quite frustrating as after you deny 5/6 shots you get instantly punished in a way or another as soon as you make a mistake. Fair play, they're far better than me (I score in other ways) as they play the game at its best, but it's quite boring and I have to say I almost always stop to play after 14 wins as it's always the same game. Before 14 wins is different... it isn't about wins/losses but about different ways to play.

    Well its the easiest way to score because when im 1v1 vs Courtois he makes miracle saves but cant save greentimed from 25 yards out. I think i have a good mixture of possesion play and using skillmoves effectively in oder to get into good positions but i do unterstand what youre tryin to say, it gets really sweaty at some point where u either adapt or get lost in finesse simulator

    I played a guy earlier who had full prime Icon squad except for LB & RB. Playing 4231 and I’ve no idea how he was in D5. I thought I was in for a hiding but I beat him. All he done was go for finesse/timed Finesse. Do these tactics really get you a squad like that because I’m no great player but this guy either sucked or maybe bad lag. I get it it may get you more wins but surely it can’t be fun to play that way

    ya, 1on1s against GKs are harder to score than 40 yard finesse shot bombs from outside. its hilarious. Most broken game i ever seen. to think ppl are spendin money on TOTY with the state of the game is crazyness. I expect lots of threads with hate for ea today, after packing crap and horrific WL results.

    Tbh I see this being said alot but if I'm through 1 on 1 9 times out of 10 it will be a goal. If you're struggling with 1 on 1s learn timed finishing and I'm not talking about timed finesse shots.

    They lie, they sneak stuff in or out to suit. This crap is killing the game for so many people.

    not against courtous it aint, stop it. Overpowered GKs will stop that sht, maybe you can score against neto or ederson or somesht.. but its not happening against the OP ones.

    True, 1v1s are much harder than timed finesses. Should be the opposite.

    "Mixture of possession play and using skill moves" translates to " I pass so many times until i can hit the timed finesse shot or use ball roll dragbacks"

    Its the only reliable and consistent way of scoring, specially against PTB + the OP AI defending.

    They need to nerf AI defending, buff 1v1`s and then remove timed finishing and GK movement. But obviously that is never happening, cause EA.

    to each there own... but if i played that i would quit the game alrdy because i just dont find it enjoyable. I find it very boring. not challenging, and honestly quite sad for the fifa franchise the path its headed. 5 patches now, and still no change in sight.

    I would never join 'em and would never swith on timed finishing. I still like to bang some ordinary finesse shots and long shots with my IF Son but still prefer to finish in the box.

    Have you ever played in div 3? Would highly doubt he's coming up against Neto there :D

    I agree with this as 1 on 1s are easy if you use timed shooting. They rocket into the top corner the majority of the time.

    The funny thing is that this game is called FIFA 19, should be called GOLF 19
