  1. These pics perfectly illustrate the lack of forward passes in the final 1/3 no matter what tactics you choose. Its such a bad ME.
  2. I'm sure I read somewhere that improved striker movement was a big part of the new ME for fm20, seems like a lack of striker movement in the final 1/3 is still an issue.
  3. Thinking about it, watching ai vs ai should give an accurate interpretation of the ME how else wouls SI test the ME?
  4. I'm surprised ai vs ai is vastly different to human play and I'm surprised ai playing against humans has an effect on the types of goals scored. From my own oberservations ai v ai I see very little goal variation to the point where I think its not playable. I'm amazed how different people interpret the ME for me it's quite clear, central play is a big missing component to the ME.
  5. I haven't actually played any games since the ME beta. I assumed watching AI games would give a true indication of how the ME performed, am I wrong? Do you see through balls from AI teams in your games?
  6. Fair enough, but surly this proves big sections of code within the ME are rotten and therefore isn't right, it sort of ruins the integrity of the game world? I'm not expecting a perfect ME there will always be issues but, the lack of central play and goal variety is a big one for me personally. Since FM19 we've had big issues with the lack of central play. id love an update from SI on why/how weve got such a problem that hasn't been fixed for two years, and SI haven't really acknowledged it. I've been a fan and loyal customer since the Amiga days buying PC versions, Ipad version, mobile etc. I kinda feel as though SI should answer my legimate question as to why we have issues with central play and perhaps whats being done to try and fix it? I have brought every version on release. Next years version, lets just say I will perhaps try the demo first as ive lost a bit of faith in SI at this point. Don't get me wrong I love the franchise but Ive reached a point where im a bit fed up. Im now playing FM18 and having some fun again, so im still getting my FM fix!!!
  7. Simply watch a few Ai vs Ai goals and you will very quickly notice trends.
  8. This is the variety of goals we have in the current ME. Sample taken from just one round of Prem games but, in fairness I've watched a lot of AI vs Ai games and this is very typical, rinse and repeat every time. Tactics don't make a difference to the type of goals scored. Too many goals from set pieces, crosses and long shots. There's simply not enough variety or randomness which results in a boring and predictable ME. Assists Corner 6 Free Kick 3 pen 1 cross 5 solo 1 long shot 3 short pass 1 Newcastle v Burnley.pkm Aston Villa v Liverpool.pkm Arsenal v Crystal Palace.pkm Chelsea v Man City.pkm Everton v Southampton.pkm Everton v Southampton.pkm Man Utd v Sheff Utd.pkm Leicester v Bournemouth.pkm
  9. This is an awesome bit of play, unfortunately doesn't happen no where near enough, perhaps 1 in 30 goals are scored this way
  10. Your wrong I'm afraid. I've not even played a single game, my obersavtions have come from watching ai vs ai games. Out of watching at least 30 games I've seen one goal from a through ball. Devs am I wrong?
  11. I never said it didn't happen I said it rarely happens, I bet your next 10 goals came from either crosses, set peices or long shots.
  12. Well whatever the reason at the end of the day central play, open play and through balls very rarely happen, regardless of my tactics or AI tactics. I don't get why people defend it, you must get bored watching the same type of goals being scored over and over again
  13. Well I do. Watching the AI games shows how flawed the ME is towards open play.
  14. Well I'm surprised, the ME im using is bad. Watch a round of ai v ai games with goals only and you will notice trends in goals scored no one can deny it because its a fact, set peices, crosses and long shot rince and repeat. Come on people surly this isn't good enough.
  15. Yes of course and nothing has changed! Nothing has changed for such a long time. You must notice it yourself.
  16. Are there any plans to improve goal variety, goals are pretty much only scored from crosses, set pieces, and long shots, why after so many months do we still have a lack of goals created from through balls? This has been a big problem since FM19 and has been highlighted as issue in so many threads

  18. just watched 30 odd ai vs ai games with goals only, and I don't see many differences in the variety of goals Goals from set pieces, goals from crosses goals from long shots. Its really bad, since when did this become acceptable, SI must know there is a lack in goal variety, it makes the ME so boring.
  19. Problem is the assists from central areas are normally little passes setting up long range goals, what's your impression of assists from through balls being played into the penalty area? Im interested because you've somehow managed two seasons so you'll have a really good idea of how the ME is working, also have you watched in AI vs AI games?
  20. Did you see many assists coming from central areas? My experience is that the vast majority of goals are scored from set pieces, crosses or long shots, there simply isn't enough creative free flowing football.
  21. Unfortunately this sums up the current ME. Its boring. Its basically a crossing simulator Its severely lacking creative passages of play Its disappointing that I cant play my favourite game because the ME is poor and has been since FM19. The last good ME was FM17
  22. I personally think that final through ball is missing, look at the number of key forward passes on the analysis screens your lucky to see one or two. In fact look at all forward passes there isn't enough regardless of your tactic. Attacking players with instructions to play through balls and encorugaed to play risky passes should be playing lots more killer balls into attacking areas of the pitch instead of playing the ball sideways. Perhaps the root cause of sideways passes is all formations and tactics defensive players sit to narrow, si need to work it out and hopefully fix it for the final patch.
