Just started a brand new game in EPL with new patch, and went on quick holiday for all friendlies and about 6 league games.
Some points noted:
- Several players, as mentioned in other threads, like Bale, Dembele, Nani, Gervinho, Mata average 10-12 dribbles a game.
- Man City just looks unstoppable, averaging 4 goals a game and thrashing most teams with huge scorelines, including Chelsea 7-4.
- Other leagues (La Liga, Serie A and Bundesliga) which are playable but are not run on full detail look very very "normal" as compared to the EPL on full detail. Dribbles there average around 4 max and no "crazy" scorelines of 7-4 noted by any team. Yes these scorelines do happen, but are really really rare in real life in a top league. Yet it sounds like this type of scoreline is seen by too many FM players after the new patch.
- Viewed a few match highlights of high-scoring games and a handful of them are scored when one of the "pro at dribbling" players goes on a godly run and tucks the ball away past the keeper.
Granted the observations above cannot be used to prove anything concretely just after 6 games, but it seems to suggest that something, or some things, aren't exactly right.
