I can't hit the target if I even slightly nudge in a direction.I feel like there's a tell just like last year that everyone knows except for me. I'll never score if I just aim in one direction and shoot but if I change halfway through my runup then I'm a good chance of putting it away.
Yeah, the issue is that they didn't really nerf AI defending when they killed timed finesses, which doesn't give you that outside of the box shot to counter someone just sitting 8 men in the box and controlling their striker. Downward headers, timed low-drivens and low-driven finesses are the new meta from what I've seen and heard.New patch has killed finesses
Finding it quite hard to score, although it’s lower scoring all together
Goalkeepers seem to save everything
Yea I’ve been following a few of the youtubers and those supposed metas, I’m not sure I’ve seen anything that’s as good as finisses yetYeah, the issue is that they didn't really nerf AI defending when they killed timed finesses, which doesn't give you that outside of the box shot to counter someone just sitting 8 men in the box and controlling their striker.

Ryan deserves higher than 78. Only a few points higher than Goodwin? Sure.My Aussie-only team is now:
GK: Mat Ryan 78
RB: Josh Risdon 71
CB: Trent Sainsbury 74
CB: Bailey Wright 72
LB: Alex Gersbach 65 (still waiting on Behich)
RM: TOTW Mabil 76
CM: Massimo Luongo 74
CM: TOTW Mooy 82
LM: TOTW Goodwin 75
CF: Tom Rogic 75
ST: TOTW Brosque 76
Only major change is waiting on Behich to pop up (I'm on Switch so Transfers are s**t) and then snapping up any Aussie TOTWs. Luongo and Mooy are absolute legend in midfield.
FIFA is just another game that has sold its soul to the microtransactions era of gaming. At least with other games you are only buying skins like in PUBG. This pay to win is nonsense.I'm looking to go pretty casual with fifa now for the next little while. I've started playing FUT champs over the last month or so and was really enjoying it pre patch, took a break last weekend and came back this weekend and played to silver 1 pretty happily spread out over Friday night and Saturday but after that I've been really over it, the game feels far more like a chore than a bit of fun. The card collecting aspect of the game is probably the only thing that's been keeping me going but seeing as though I didn't pack a TOTY and now I don't have a chance of getting my team to that level, it is a bit of a bore.
Part of the reason I don't play career anymore is because it is simply playing the game over and over, with no improvements being made to the game on or off the pitch in that mode to keep me invested. Have heard that the next release is going to be a big change for the game (but I think we all know that is really just the game moving to a subscription model to try and counter bans on FIFA point sales) but I really hope that EA realise just how much they have to improve the gameplay if they want to keep folks engaged.
IMO ever since they've targeted the esports market, the game has been on the slide, everything in fut has felt higher stakes since then and that there is a certain way you need to play and certain cards you need to get your hands on in order to keep up. I just miss the days of rolling up in the gold cup with a squad that had Reus & Esswein up top and Dede and Felipe Santana at the back and just messing around, you can't play like that anymore. Having said that I'll probably be back to grinding as soon as the they drop the new UCL promo next week.
tl;dr: I'm getting bored of actually playing the game these days, what do you guys think?
