Penalties

10 posts in this topic

Surely I cannot be the only one who has noticed this, but it has not been fixed in any of the updates so I think it's necessary to note it here.

I have good players. I don't have particularly good penalty takers. However, my record since I got to the PL 3 seasons ago is 15 penalties, only one scored. In two cup shootouts, I scored a 'normal' amount, around 80%. So there is clearly something wrong here. It's just so frustrating. Every time we get a penalty, I know with almost 100% certainty we will miss it, so I can't even get excited about the award of a pen anymore.

Yes, my top penalty taker is only a 12. And he's against top keepers...but 1/15? Come on. I've switched it about too, an no one else any better.

Penalty success is coded to reflect actual numbers, so it is unlikely to be a bug as such.  There are several attributes that contribute to good penalty takers, not just the penalty attribute, so have a look at composure and finishing and then allocate a taker.  Look at his training and select a focus that will help with this as well.

Blah blah blah. He has missed 14 out of 15 penalties. That isn't normal. The game is supposed to reflect real life If it's coded in this way, it's coded wrong because this just doesn't happen.

the goalkeepers are the problem. they know exactly where the ball is going, even a grey goalie will save 7 of 10 penalties

I have also experienced ridiculous numbers in relation to penalty kicks. I would estimate my sides miss 8 out of 10 pens, using players like Dybala and Messi.  I've had numerous shootouts where my side has failed to score a single pen. Regardless of the various attributes that might contribute to being a good spot kick taker aside from penalty taking, there is obviously a fundamental flaw/bug in whatever algorithm or whatever the method is that the computer uses to determine whether a particular pen will be scored or not in a given situation. Even a relatively weak professional footballer would expect to have a better than 50:50 chance of scoring in a match, let alone world class players who in my experience have a 10-20 per cent success rate.

I also got this problem.

I got about 1x% success rate there, and my penalty taker is Dybala.

Have you ever tested the goalkeeper with the highest morale and stamina(use the in game editor)?

From my experience in-game penalties are very normal ,my teams rarely miss or save a penalty BUT what is certainly glitched is the penalty shoot-out.My goalkeeper never NEVER saves a penalty and my players always miss 1-2. I lose even from amateur teams and it's extremely annoying, i think that i have lost 5/5 penalty shoot-outs without saving a single penalty.What i think makes all these problems is that it doesn't seem to change something who takes the penalty or who is the goalkeeper that tries to save it. Even when really bad players like centre backs take a penalty they will miss 1/5 penalties  when the same thing happens with messi for example. The same thing with keepers they will save my penalties even if they are grey or unknown and my superstar keeper isn't even close to save one.CONCLUSION:PENALTIES ARE GLITCHED ONE WAY OR ANOTHER

Against leicester, wilson missed a penalty all good.

the match after, I knew that after I missed the 2nd penalty (against crystal palace), I'm gonna lose the game, it's quite typical and already easy to predict the game behaviour.

Karma, they scored against us with a penalty.

Same issue here for sometime where Mark Noble (real life stats of 3 penalty misses in 10 years) has missed around 80% of the penalties he has taken for me over a couple of saves.  Only happened since last patch.  Not just Noble I hasten to add, other takers are having the same problem as are the opposition who probably miss at least 70% of their penalties against me, which makes me feel a bit better!!  In my matches I actually see more direct free kick goals than I do penalties!

It's probably more noticeable because there are an awful lot of penalties and I kid you not all of them have been (on both sides) due to what I assume is some sort of a push as a ball comes in from a corner, free kick, cross or a throw in.  Heart is in my mouth every single time an aerial ball comes into my penalty area in the highlights.  Not one penalty has been due to a trip or a foul in the box, all from aerial balls into the area.
