Hey Ea,



As you know fifa 19 had a lot of issues that made a lot of people mad with your franchise.



I want to give you some advice that will bring control back to your consumers. Something they really hated in this year where assisted controls were so op and more often than not gave you the feeling you werent really playing yourself.



As a disclaimer i want to add that i know and understand that you as a company have different type of consumers and that your game must be playable for all. But the way you have been focussing on the casuals is destroying the game for the more skilled players.



My point that i want to make is that crossing and shooting need to be more manual. I have had my crosses and lobpass settings set to manual this year and i love the control it gives me. It adds a skillgap and you feel like you are doing things yourself. People will blame your game less when you give control to the players! I have played with these settings all year and end elite 3 and gold 1 in WL. So its perfectly possible to learn and improve these manual controls. I didnt didnt set shooting to semi-manual because i would be at too much of a disadvantage but i played in previous fifas with semi manual shooting and it was great.



I believe a lot of issues with the game could be fixed instantly if you make more manual controls the default in competetive modes (WL, Rivals and Draft). For example the OP el tornado crosses would be less OP because you have to somewhat bring more effort into your crosses to place them where you want. With shooting and finishing there were a lot of complaints this year and a lot of rng and inconsistencies were present in this fifa as you know. Again i think more manual controls (semi-manual in this case cuz shooting is very hard to master full manual) would alleviate these issues. At the very least people would blame theirselves in stead of your game which is always a good thing cuz people would wanna improve then. When it feels like its out of their control people rage and get fed up with the game.



As a summary i think more manual controls are a good thing for the franchise and it would alleviate a lot of complaints that we loyal consumers have with this game. These manual controls should be implemented and made default in your most competetive modes such as WL and Rivals and then your casual user base can enjoy assisted controls in offline modes and casual online modes. I think this would benefit all users the most. I hope you will think about this feedback !

    I kind of agree but you would alienate way to many people of you did this. Would lose a lot of people and they ain’t going to do anything to please the minority and lose the majority

    We need to set these two types of players apart. Make a League for casuals where rewards in therms of coins and packs are smaller. This is for fifa players that wanna play with full assisted controls as of today.

    Then make a League for hardcore fifa players. The ones that I personally call “the real pros”.
    A League that is meant for really, really good fifa players and that League will only allow semi-assisted controls. (Full manual would scare most people) Rewards should be higher as it’s much harder to control in-game passing, shooting etc. even on semi-assisted.

    The good thing about this is that people want better rewards, but they have to show some pure skills and vision as a fifa player.

    How about that?

    Bro its in the majoritys interest to have these kind of setting made default. Trust me ive played with full manual crossing and lobbed passes all year in fifa 19 and its not hard at all. Its just more control for the player and you have to learn and concentrate more which is what its all about in a competetive mode if im not mistaken ?!

    Passing can never be full manual cuz thats too hard but shooting and crossing could and should be more manual. These assisted controls are bs

    Well since weekend leaugue and div rivals are the most competetive modes they should make shooting and crossing semi manual in these modes. Passing is too hard and can stay somewhat assisted. Its not impossible to master if thats what the majority is worried about. I played all year with full manual crosses and lobbed passes and i have 2600 skillrating and end gold 1/ elite 3 in WL. It needs learning and concentration but its so much better than assisted bcuz of so many reason. One reason is because it adds skillgap. Another reason is because you have control over basis football things as it should be so you cant blame the game and you can have more variety in your attacking plays.

    So its all possible to add these changes in the existing fut modes without much problems
