I second Paul, and I can confirm that his gameplaymod is really good. It's the only reason I'm still playing and enjoying FIFA21, without it I would've given up on it months ago. The posibility of mods is also the reason I play on PC.
Just try it: play 3-4-1-2 or 4-1-2-1-2, and notice that when not in possession the formation just changes. The CAM goes to left midfield, the rcm goes to right midfield. It's an EA issue, and it has been since FIFA20. When you give the CAM the instruction to stay foreward, it fixes it.
I just don't understand how it can be good one time and bad the other, under the same circumstances. If it was always good there would be no problem, if it was always bad I could just dump it. Now I'm constantly hoping and mostly being dissapointed.
It is better than FIFA 20, but only marginally. However, it's not better than FIFA 20 with mods. If you got a PC, stick to 20 and mod the hell out of it. Then wait until FIFA 21 is modabble in the same way and only then buy 21.
@ponnyslakteriet: what you're saying actually sound pretty reasonable. The thing that truly infuriates me is that EA doesn't take the time to explain these things to their customers. If you can do it, why can't they? Their total lack of transparancy makes every little issue and bug so much worse.
A lot of these issues are really easy to fix as well. There is still no option for manual settings in skill games, it's not possible anymore to choose another commentary language even though I downloaded them and I can see them in my gamefiles.
The best free kick system was a bunch of FIFA's ago, when you had to choose where on the ball you would strike it. This gave the option of curve/no curve, and it was the most realistic and closest to real life kicking of a football it ever was.
I also play full manual, but there are two things that still bother me a lot: - no manual controls in skill games. I’d love to practice my shooting and short passing trough them, but it’s not possible. - on some areas of the pitch, crossing is still assisted. When I’m 20-30 metres from goal, near the sideline and I attempt…
I totally agree. For FIFA 20 I've been using mods to overturn unrealistic transfers. It worked, but it was a hasstle. Turning the first transfer period off seems to make later transfers a bit less unrealistic, though.
It's really not normal that we can't choose our commentary language ingame. This should be something really easy to fix. @EA_Roger @EA_Cade @EA_GZaro @EA_Arcadia Any comment on this would be appreciated.
Lamptey is 1.67 cm or 5”6. I don’t think Brighton played him at centre back. I’ve had more instances where players were out of position (Manquillo at cm), but I chose this one because it was so obvious.
The same issues are still there: no manual controls on skill games and on some places on the pitch crossing suddenly turns to assisted or at least semi. But overall gameplay has improved, though some issues need solutions.
I don't know, it's just a lot of work that could easily be automated. Been playing for hours now before I got to the first game of the league. (Nice username btw. I wonder if there's a GoodJohnnyCash somewhere.)
