    Moving the keeper has to be worst mechanic ever added into a Fifa title

    Why?

    I hate timed finishing, but do not think increased GK control in general is a bad direction.

    If I wanted to play against manually moving keepers I'd stick to pro clubs, utter ****. Shouldn't be pure outplaying someone yet losing because he's moved his keeper to save 1v1's whilst scoring 3 timed finesses from 30 yards off rebounds

    Gonna watch the handball world cup final now. GF loves handball...

    Hoping to play another 5 tonight and 10-15 tomorrow depending on results tonight.

    How would your rate Baresi in comparison to rijkard? I used Rijkard and he was good without being a game changer for me , If Baresi is better I might try him at some point next to Ramos.

    I think its hard to compare them mate. Baresi is rock solid defensively (93 reactions, 95 interception, 95 marking, 95 standing/sliding tackle) and will not put a foot wrong(as long as I dont touch him :trollface: ) - but obviously lacks physicality. Such an elegant defender!

    - Rijkaard has a great physical presence but feels clumpsy at times as you've probably experienced.

    Seems like everyone that’s “good” just spams 1 time finesse shots and moves the goalie.

    Won a game where everything was going against me. Against the most stacked team I’ve run into this year. Guy scores 3 one timer finesse shots from 30-35yards out. 88th minute I’m making an attacking run with best, roulette in the box only to get tackled hard. No ball, just tripped up. ZERO penalty. Ended up winning after ET In penalties. Every tackle I made either went out of bounds or to another attacker. Passes we’re going everywhere they shouldn’t.

    Had 40% possession and +14 tackles. Opponents Gullit was a magnet for the ball.

    Seriously. Think this opponent is 1 of the worst I have ever played. 3 of his goals where absolutely shocking bs.

    Suggestions on how to break down an opponent playing 4222??
    Mind boggling how someone with 2 CMs can actually close down midfield this effectively

    I know. It wasn't as if they where just pot shots from 30yds. Most was in the box!

    Replaced Ramos with Baresi (did him for SBC fodder lol) and my defense seems much more solid. Always in the right place, intercepts a lot and solid tackle. Good enough in the air as well. Thinking about completing Stoichkov, but don't really wanna lose Baresi

    Gold 1 for the 2nd time in 3 weeks thx to the mighty zlatan even in this poor gameplay. Do I get to say I’m a regular gold 1 player now? Guess I’m finally an average player right @WildaF3niX :trollface:

    Your average player is G2/G3. G1 is above average.

    Your average player is probably a silver player.

    11-10, done, another 9 loss streak, no point playing any more as I would never reach 14 anyway, Im a 6 wins player, not 11.

    My rough guess is that I have won only 20games from 120 after 11 wins this fifa.

    This has to be a mentality thing hitting 11 wins in 12 or 13 games and then constantly collapsing to that extent isn’t normal. If you can get to 11 so easily you clearly aren’t that bad
    I would like to believe that, but The moment I hit 11 wins I started getting matched up with people time finishing every single shot and being beyond gods at moving the GK. I average 40% possession, like 30% tackle success and 20% rebound winrate overall, any half decent player can easily punish this, I dont know why but the stupid matchmaking just doesnt work for me. All the losses were totally and completely deserved, my opponents were 3 levels above me.

    I like that. Makes me just above average, AGAIN. ;)

    Dang so G2 is average. I thought 17-19 wins is above average? 15 wins would be average. Do you even math?

    How is gameplay tonight? It's been bad this weekend
  • Stopped at 11 wins. Think my record is 11-9 which is the worst I've done for a while.

    I know it's probably just me but I cannot score a timed finesse to save my life. Can count on one hand the amount I've scored this WL, I also need to learn how to cross 😂

    You are obviously wrong. @WildaF3niX knows everything. The man who plays the game every weekend and doesn’t even like it.
