Yesterday I was playing Rivals and it was all 1 depth, drop back, long ball, crossing. My opponents did not touch their defense, and were on me like hyena’s whenever I tried something.

Call me a timed finesse abuser, call me a crybaby, I don’t care. Before you could force these people out, to do something, now they laugh in your face while you try to play football and have fun. This isn’t fun, add a little button delay in there and it’s torture. Every year they ruin the game with their tweaks and tunes, but this patch takes the cake. I have never seen a company like this that puts so much effort and thought in empty promo’s and completely destroys its core, the gameplay.

Sold my team, cashed out, and gonna wait for things to get better because I felt like discarding the whole lot of them.

    Exactly. This is disgrace. That’s not okay. That’s just disgrace.

    I haven’t sold my team, but it’s the first time this year when I just can’t play anymore. I was waiting for this patch to fix 2 issues. Ai and finesse shots. One can’t be fixed without fixing other one. But they did it. They just showed how incometent they are. They just know nothing about balance.

    I feel the same... not playing WL thats for sure.

    Boring thing is as soon as you criticize the patch everybody jumps to the conclusion you were abusing finesse shots.

    Somehow the patch affected the whole gameplay. Passing became random, reaction agility and acceleration have been tone down. Basics of the gameplay have changed for me, and thats what Im complaining against. I have no more fun building chances.

    Plus opponent tactics are a real pain... 5 atb ptb... ai defending. Time to build a new gamemlay from scratch...

    And now we have to wait q minimum of 15 days to see if they can "improve" this mess.

    I did not want to say it because I think this game effects you mentally and you start feeling things that arent there but yes, felt like the whole gameplay was different.

    Selling my team today. There is litteraly no point defending anymore. Might as well do that with what I can’t sell.

    I honestly don’t want to turn my Xbox on anymore after witnessing what I did last night.

    This is the sad truth. Played 4 games of fut, about 4 games of pro clubs and it was the least fun I've had on fifa ever. There's been changes to dribbling and passing, wasn't in the patch notes but it's there. Player selection is worse than before. Tackles don't stick, also seems worse than before. And the ai defending is way over the top. I don't think ea have any idea what they're doing.

    There it comes and it's not even the weekend! I've been warning for this the whole time; these white knights who couldn't cope with timed finesses and cried wolf because people utilized every tool in the shed, are in for a very sour awakening when they'll realize what a vapid, shallow, meaningless game they're in for.

    There is no way this would have worked; you can't just abolish TF without addressing AI defending. TF was the COUNTER to passive handholding.

    I don’t even bother to sell my players. Simply quit. We have been used to test this immature product for 4 months, and we even paid for this. Too ridiculous. Do they even test balance before delivering patch? EA is really good at making its customers feel stupid.

    Played this random yesterday, he had messi and Suarez up front and all of the 90 mins he tried timed finesse shots, mainly 180 first time shots! I won 2-0 as he couldn’t quite get the fact that his finesse shots weren’t working!! Had a wee LOL at him

    It would be a disgrace, if EA had any grace to begin with. Honestly, when is the last time the name "Electronic Arts" was mentioned in a positive setting?

    I am also on the verge of putting it all aside, these past few days I've been playing with the same commitment as when I watch "The Big Bang Theory", just to keep myself busy.

    Believe me it has nothing to do with going insane, or conspiration thing. Previous patches haveng affected my playstyle at all (it sure is annoying to see opponents abuse new mechanics) but no change from my end. This time is a different story.

    My playstyle is all about timing my acceleration right so I burn my opponent, finding sweet passing lanes and timing them right, making difference on the first touch with good ball control. Its all gone... I can clearly see that now some passes are eeither missed or intercepted where they werent in the past... first seconds when you control a player they feel like tanks... I aldo use to have dominant wingers, now I still make differences with them but its just different.

    I’m also struggling with these 10 speedy Gonzales coming at me like American football.. WTF is this tactic? Surely by 60mims they will be knackered. Well they still run about daft till the final whistle goes..

    But I guess those were necdssary changes to tone down finesse shots right. Make sense uh? Loool

    Are you guys saying they tuned up the opponent AI defence or people just playing PTB now?

    Feel ya. Tbh it's really surprising that with army of developers and constant feedback from the community EA still can't make a decent football game in 2019.

    My passes really feel different after the patch. First touches are too heavy and it seems that more people are using full press.

    The combination of these three things make a game so unfair. It is unbelievable how big the difference is between two players in the same match in terms of smooth gameplay. And sometimes I am the one with smooth gameplay and I just know that my opponent is raging since his players turned into 2yo children.

    I dont care what they do with this game i just dont ever wanna see timed finesse back again. This game is infinitely better after the patch regardless of how bad it is.

    If anything this patch has re-energized me to play because i dont have to play those scrubs again.

    The way it impacted the rest of the gameplay? Id rather see those noobs scoring time finesse again, I had more fun when I owned the ball.
