I thought the 8.0.1 patch would fix the closing down and long shots bug by now. But no it hasn't. Long shots seems to have been toned down a little, closing down seems to sometimes work sometimes doesn't.
Before the 8.0.1 patch
I had poor shots to goals ration
After the patch
Still the same! Nothing has changed.
Basically this closing down and long shot bug is what is causing everyone to have 20 shots on goal but only resulting in 1 or 2 goals scored. Fair enough only 2% of the shots go in. But if the opposition win as a result of 3 - 4 shots where you had 20 thats unfair and unrealistic.
There is a game in there where Ipswich had 5 shots but NO/NOTHING/ZERO shots had hit the target AND THEY STILL SCORED!?!??! That game cost me 2 points.
Since the patch I lost in the champions league, FA cup final and my run of form in the league.
There are a load of people complaing about the number of shots per goals since the installing the patch. So its not just me
This thread documents some problems.
I believe the long shot and closing bug has not been toned down enough or at all. This is why players are shooting outside of box when told not to and missiing targets therefore resulting in 20 shots on goal.
And before you tell me to upload my games to the bugs forum I HAVE SINCE OCTOBER
