  • Regarding the reddit user's claim: (Quote) I can report that this theory isn't 100% correct (at least in pro career mode). Last night I was surprised to get a foul for what appeared to be a bit of half-hearted pulling by the opponent, the kind of t…
  • Over on reddit, someone reckons: (Quote) Does this match anyone else's experience? It certainly would explain a lot of what I see happening in career pro matches.
  • Update on my experience in Pro career mode. After scoring the first free kick in 3 or 4 attempts (where the first one in a career always seems to be given a giant helping hand by the game) I've now taken 211 free kicks in matches with my pro who ha…
  • I've been playing the Be A Pro career mode, and I've managed to get my pro up to FK accuracy 71. At that level, it's next to impossible to score a free kick (even if directly duplicating the online "how to score free kicks nearly every time&quo…
  • I think keepers get worse at saving them - even when identically executed by you - as your player's Penalties attribute improves, so go and train him on that drill. You can even do cheeky chips into one low corner after a while and most keepers most…
  • Yep, the AI makes that kind of thing quite likely :-( You can have a season where you're entirely unbeaten, except for one or two games against the worst pair of clubs in the league where you lose. Or you can be kicked out of a cup competition by a …
  • You can improve your wage (at least from your starting wage) by going out on loan. You'll get offered a better wage by the loan club for the duration of the loan, and when you are recalled you'll continue to be paid that amount by your club.
  • (Quote) Very interesting. I wonder what is different then (other than the sliders)? What platform are you on? I'm on PC using an XBox One controller.
  • (Quote) I've seen plenty of evidence in my own play that convince me that shot placement with manual shooting is controlled by the AI more often than it is by the human player. This includes shots that go almost 90 degrees away from where I was poi…
  • I've had to request a transfer four times before it got accepted. You might even need to ask more than that if you're unlucky.
  • Not to mention that button presses that are of very similar duration result in passes that go about one yard in some cases, and more than thirty yards in others (and this happens even with manual passing, despite the game implying that manual mode m…
  • I think you might be better off finding a different game, or a training utility, to practice pointing precisely where you intend to with the sticks. You need error-free feedback showing precisely where you're pointing in order to calibrate yourself.
  • I find the Xbox One controller a bit tricky. The ergonomics fit the natural slant of your hands, but it's a bit of a challenge to reliably point to the compass points (or the 45 degree axes) using the left and right stick. I almost wish they'd align…
  • Yeah, I have difficulty believing manual is really manual. I could believe manual has added shot error in order to differentiate the high stats players from low stats players, but the shots I took aiming for just inside the far post that squeezed th…
  • So, they haven't fixed any of the myriad of (basic and presumably easy to fix) bugs in (say) Career mode, but have spent time updating boots for certain players. Well, we can certainly see where their priorities lie ;-)
  • How old is Neumann? This was 8 or so years into the career, and some of the top players at the start have retired by then - although I see keepers going until very late 30s. Manager mode sounds like an interesting option, but I think I'm readying m…
  • So I went for a transfer, and to my surprise for the first time ever I was offered a transfer out of the Premier League to Bayern Munich. I thought I may as well give it a go. Then when I got there I found that when the transfer window closed the t…
  • Not long after I wrote that last comment I had a game where my player had 10 shots and all of them went pretty much where I thought I was aiming them. He scored 4 goals, three of them slotted in across the face of goal on fairly narrow angles. The …
  • You aren't the only one. I find in most seasons there's a period of about 8 games where this kind of thing is rife. Sometimes it happens near the middle of the year, sometimes towards the end of the season. It's particularly annoying if it happens n…
  • Yes, I think that happens but I'm not sure that effect explains what I'm seeing. A large majority of shots are significantly off the direction I'm aiming, and a surprising number of them are ludicrously so. I'd guess that would require a Finishing s…
  • Yes. It's a bit harder, but not a big leap.
  • Also, in Player Career mode your player is forcibly retired after somewhere between 14 and 16 seasons, i.e. somewhere between age 32 and 35, even though he is still going strong too. That sh!ts me (especially the time it happened when he was in the…
  • Could be fun :-) Not sure how I get my player transferred to your team though!
  • (Quote) Yeah, that's very much the typical pattern for me too when things are going well. It's like the game clams up for the second half after that kind of first half. That's why this 2nd half was so spectacular.
  • While we're complaining about AI stupidity, how about the goalkeepers defending a penalty shot who don't immediately dive, but who then can't take two leisurely steps to one side to save a really slow chip that barely makes it to the goal line? This…
  • I had one game where I scored 9 in the second half, which may have been a similar situation to that.
  • Given all the flaws posted above, I kinda wish the AI was a pluggable component so we could have a go at writing our own, either individually or as a cooperative.
  • At least you can be thankful the keeper didn't fumble it straight into goal. Why bother passing to the opposition when you can cut out the middle man and score for them yourself? ;-) Then there are the times the keeper couldn't be bothered keeping …
  • (Quote) May as well. If nothing else, it's cathartic!
  • (Quote) ...and your AI midfielders will hold the ball up whilst half a dozen defenders run past them to get between your player and the opponent's goal, despite having two viable forward passes to keep the attack momentum going. Sh!ts me every tim…
