Why’s this so hard all of a sudden. I’m all for reducing the frequency of headed goals from corners to a realistic level but it’s pointless having a corner. Even if I win a header it’s usually headed well over.
Needs tweaking...corners are too under-powered. Same for the CPU, they can’t seem to get anything from them either.
It’s not realistic.
The other weird thing is that although it is probably more because of my own actions that I have scored than it used to be with headers, it gives me much less satisfaction to score, because it's an obvious ploy that wouldn't continually work more than once in real life.
I don't know whether people have found the same issue generally, or if it's something to do with my edited 433 with 2 CAM's.
I've scored a fair few, I play manual controls which may or may not have an impact. I don't have too specific a formula, but I tend to aim into space, places where there are no players allowing my players to battle for that space. It's difficult to explain but at that point you have a moment where you can move your player & try to cut in front of them, once ready to jump/head stop trying to move your player & focus on the aiming, I've found having the analog stick not fully committed to a direction often leaves me with a header that floats silly high & wide so I started committing to pushing it fully in a direction I want to aim & have had more success with headers in general since then.
I haven't really counted to get an idea of how many I've scored or what ratio, but it's enough that I feel confident I have a chance from a corner which ultimately is what I'd like. I've seen quite a few people talk about having a lot of success from free kicks this year, it's something I've not been able to do as well, I've scored none, pretty bad at them despite some practice, yet crossing/headers & corners I've picked up well & have scored plenty. Seems to be one of those things.
I’ll give that a try. One thing I would say is when I aim for a space the keeper will come out and claim it/punch it!
