VAR always makes the same decisions


Recommended Posts

Also VAR on the edge of the box It will be a free kick.

When a cross is hit too deep and the ref consults VAR it will be penalty.

It's pointless when the decisions are always the same Id rarther them remove VAR from the game until fixed or at least have an option to disable it.

God I wish someone in real life was saying this about VAR because its god awful. The worst thing to happen to football since hooliganism.

The principle of Var is good. It’s needed. But not in its current form. The offside rule needs adapting, again. FM needs some variety in its var use.. although it’s fulfilling the current state of the real Var, by being annoying, at least ;)

+1 to this cant believe i haven't  posted myself i have thought about it during play time often, var always gives the penalty or chalks off the goal for offside,and im 5/6 seasons deep

I've noticed this too - particular when it comes to offside reviews. If I see a VAR review after I've scored a goal, I know it's going to be disallowed, which is frustrating. In real life, VAR is used for marginal offside calls, so sometimes the player is onside and the goal counts. It would be nice if Football Manager could reflect this to make the use of VAR more realistic.

Whenever VAR is consulted in the game you know exactly what the result will be. For example if it a possible offside for a goal then it WILL be offside. If the ref consults VAR for a possible foul in the box he WILL award penalty. This is just my observations after two and half seasons and it takes away any of the tension that you should feel waiting on a VAR ruling.

To add to this, if the ball goes out of play after the tackle, it won't be given as a penalty.

Same. FM19 at least some decisions are different like goal being allowed after VAR. But you can tell if goal is disallowed because if you are chasing the game, players will celebrate if the goal is disallowed.

I posted this issue in the bugs forum about a week ago and after a few days the post vanished. I think this issue has been raised, possibly multiple times already, but could a mod confirm this IS a known issue and that it’s something being looked at please?

This.

There is no tension when a decision goes to VAR - in its current form VAR in Football Manager is utterly pointless.

same as on one on one and heading in the box

For the first time yesterday, I had VAR rule No penalty (no foul) in one of my games. Before that, every single time was as the OP has described. More variety like real life would be great.

Was it just outside the area?

No, I’ve had a few like that but this was in the six yard box and the VAR decided no foul and gave a corner instead! First time I’d ever seen it and I was all set for seeing my penalty!

yeah it's completely useless.

 

Without any wickedness towards SI's staff, these VAR's problems are obvious by playing one season, and I don't understand why they have still not been fixed.

Even if they can't fix it, it's a case where it's pretty clear disabling the feature entirely would be preferable to keeping it in the extremely broken state it's in at the moment. And to do so would be really pretty trivial - in fact with a bit of effort a normal user can do it using the pre-game editor. But that would involve admitting the scale of the problem.

Agree, this is a real issue and takes down the unpredictability of football, which is what makes it so interesting and passionate.

In its current form VAR IRL is utterly pointless :D

I like when there is an attack, the ball is saved or cleared from on the line but it then put in the net anyway from the rebound.  Cue a VAR decision on whether the original shot went in or not?!  It always didn't but was a goal a few seconds later anyway!

Somewhere it is logical, as a computer game can be very accurate on this matters, or maybe we can say 100%. If we want it to be like irl, then SI needs to put in a margin of faults done by the referee's in this game. So then the Var can be there to assist and you can get that different outcomes like irl. Now its just clear on some situations, like you say about penalties etc. its a repeated situation where the Var comes into play but you already know the outcome as there is no room for errors done by the ref. as the game is in this case really accurate or lets even say 100%.

I've only played as high as the Championship but if VAR in FM20 is anything like the god damn goal line technology replays in FM19 then I think I would probably throw my laptop out of the window...every single frigging time you know it hasn't crossed the line, and it becomes a race to how quickly you can hit the skip button :seagull:

That's pretty much it, but it takes much, much longer and there isn't a skip button. It's embarrassingly broken and really, if SI couldn't get it to work, should've been removed from the game entirely in one of the patches.

When they use VAR after goal is scored to check if it is offside,  it always is and the goal is always disallowed. However I have seen a few times that the contact inside of the box is checked and awarded no penalty.

Keep in mind this depends on which Highlight mode you're using. If, say, you're playing on Key highlights, VAR will always work the way you noticed.

If, instead, you play on Extended, you could see some "no penalty" VAR decisions.

That's fair actually, in/out of the box is the only one that works. I play on Comprehensive, and I think literally over 99% of the time if they're checking whether it's a foul or not it is, and if they're checking whether it's offside or not it is. Red card and mistaken identity checks don't even seem to be implemented at all.

I had the 'is it in the box' one three times in one game, every time it was outside the box. Very frustrating.

Further compounded by the next game a foul that was right on the edge of the area, given as a pen with no referral to VAR. So you know as soon as VAR is involved that it is outside the box.

I remember this definitely being far less predictable in FM 19. You had goals that were either allowed or disallowed after a VAR check. In FM 20, a VAR check always means a disallowed goal. Similarly, VAR checks for a foul in the box always results in a penalty. Last year this wasn't the case.

The only one I've seen go either way was the foul inside/outside the box. I'd say it ended up being a FK about 95% of the time. Can only remember one incident of a penalty being awarded.

Hopefully this is freshened up for FM 21. It's a pain when the referee goes all the way to the monitor when the result is all so predictable.

Somebody I know online was telling me that his goalkeeper picked up the ball near the edge of the box and ended up dragged out of the box. This is obviously a free kick..but VAR was consulted to check if it should be a free kick or pen...

That sounds like a bug triggered by the offence being one that crosses the line of the penalty area or whatever triggers that VAR call
