Anyone hitting the post more since the latest patch?

Never been one for a conspiracy, but since the last patch I’ve been hitting the post 3/4 times per game.

I’m not talking long range, I’m talking in the box, clear chances and hitting post. It’s so annoying. Finally break down the OP AI animals then R9, PIM Best or PIM ADP all with 95+ finishing hit the post from 10 yards.

Been happening in rivals too. Has something changed? Anyone else?

    I noticed the games I hit the post 4 or 5 times are the games I lose.

    This is what I’m saying. Not the long range hit and hopes, the clear cut, open chances are a coin toss. I haven’t really hit the post all year, but the last few days it’s every clear chance. It’s annoying as hell

    My UEL Falcao woth Finisher (99 shooting in every stat) became a world champion at hotting the post approx 3 patches (1 month) ago...

    He was at 60 games and about 100+ goals in WL a month ago. Now I have a 1:1 ratio with him hittong the post about 3-5 times a game instead of scoring 3-5..

    Different patch, same post. It’s the same as always which admittedly is far too often.

    I thought this dude, but it’s far more than I usually do. Especially in tight games.

    I agree, not sure that the patch had anything to do with it, probably just a coincidence but it was definitely something I've noticed. Even goals are going bar and in...

    Maybe you should ask those at ea sport what they do. I personally think it is all a fraud. Fifa and ea sport both

    Explain this then? This wasn’t happening before. Wonder block by the AI, the 96 Finishing Best missing from 5 yards.

    Clearly see less than a bar of power, so why does he smash it against the bar?



    Gullit clean through. Aimed in the corner



    Something has defo been tweaked. The shooting on this game is a mess.

    Andy is right, its nothing to do with the patch because the game is broken beyond redemption.

    You are taking a couple of examples and assuming something massive has changed, the sample size here is very small. I can't explain why that particular event happened, would need to be someone with more insight from the gameplay team with exact knowledge of how all the mechanics work.

    Again though, gameplay changes are listed in patch notes, otherwise they haven't been changed.

    I have it too, and all my WL opponents also. Every game I hit 2, 3 times the post or bar, same as my opponents.

    Probably should factor in that Best hit it whilst leaning further back than a limbo dancer.

    No offence but this game is broken. Even your devs have given up it’s so bad.

    Here’s my last video, not hitting the post related, but the worst goal I’ve conceded. A disgrace.

    This was in the 90th min. I won in ET, but EA don’t even know the rules, what chance do we have of getting a decent football game?
