    We are going to maybe nerf drop back. But since abusers can’t put ten men in the box (maybe) we want to make sure they don’t get mad, so you will now miss more from the top of the box.

    why the hell would they nerf shooting? I’ve never seen one complaint that it was OP

    on the plus side, I'm curious to see the changes to tackling (hoping for fewer rebounds) but still:
    • 5th update and it's not even November (I vaguely remember them saying they didn't plan on touching the game that much after release :lol: )
    • No mention of servers (dev team can't address that but still no formal acknowledgement there is even an issue with them)
    • No stamina drain for drop back players or anything to penalise folk that hammer that for the whole game
    • Headers still broken
    • no mention of excessive shot blocking (again as a consequence of ridiculous drop back)

    I still want to grind for Rui Costa but otherwise, I'm pretty much done playing anything other than friendlies. I don't enjoy playing this broken mess on any kind of competitive mode (and there are no meaningful non-competitive modes).

    Please note, not shooting the messengers here. They can only work with what they're given. Important to remember that.

    drop back changes sound terrible, everyone is now in the box quicker and harder to score against it

    Look. If they want to buff headers fine. But if they’re going to make them OP they better do it before I get Zanetti.

    80+ people got top 100 on champs yet no patch to stop their cheating

    Im on PC and I dont even feel like trying it. Nerf shooting is the worst thing that could have happened to this game. Its already hard to score goals after build up. This is just going to make it worse. EA lost the plot.

    Usually 100 people get in T100 ;)

    I think he meant that 80+ people went 30-0

    For 4 defender formations, the maximum capacity of the midfield line is 4.
    For 3 and 5 defender formations, the maximum capacity of the midfield line is 3.

    What happens with say 352 or 451? i have an extra midfielder compared to the max cap... does 1 of my midfielders just decided im not going to defend?

    Hopefully yeah. Might mean you have to attack instead of boring the life out of us!

    Happy with the changes on the condition sitting with 10 men in the box isn’t now overpowered.

    Wish they’d get rid of the option to have players stay back while attacking. They should just be default balanced so we can have a skill gap.

    Imagine bending the rules of football because you can not create a balanced football game. Remove headers, limit the number of defenders, whats next? Remove chip shots? Remove crosses alltogether?
    This is hard to watch honestly.

    That patch sounds awful. The drop back, tackling are the only good adjustments. They've made shooting more difficult and buffed goalkeepers even more, who asked for that change? This is a patch that will condense the skill gap even further and just in time for all the casuals that will purchase the game for Christmas. Fifa point sales is all this company care about, they're despicable.

    I read it as drop back gets more players back quicker. You can then second man press. I think this will buff drop back even more.

    Shooting was ok, no real issues, so they nerf it. They have no idea what they’re doing. Every single aspect of this game is a mess
