Has the woodwork issue been fixed in FM20?

Recommended Posts

I am not going to buy FM20 as I generally don't buy these games every year (FM19 was the first one I got in a decade) but I was wondering if FM20 fixed the well known FM19 (and possibly earlier versions) issue where you would get a lot of shots hit the woodwork, almost every game, and sometimes 3 or 4 times in each game.

Well I hit the woodwork 6 times in a match last night that I drew 2-2, frustrating to say the least!

Meanwhile I've hit the woodwork once or twice in the last 10 or so matches, so it isn't a consistent thing.

Last season where I was dominant and won promotion with 20 points margin I had 1 game where I hit woodwork 4 times and maybe like 2-3 games where I hit woodwork 2-3 times. This season I am relegation candidate and I'm generating less shots on average and honestly, I can't remember when I hit the woodwork last time. And i'm in final third of the season.

My players seem to have their aim amazingly accurate. And it's frustrating,

What's with the woodwork thing ? I don't think it's an excessive occurence and for me, it adds to the drama !

As mentioned above, in FM19 it was an issue. The woodwork would be hit so many times in some games that hitting the woodwork didn't feel as agonizing as it does in real life. I was wondering if this was continuing to happen now. Seems some people are saying it does and some that it doesn't.

I see woodwork once or so per match. Not bad.

More concerning is "disallowed goals", which I've been getting twice or more a match on average...

In fairness, since VAR came in that was happening in real life as well.

Users tend to remember the match where they hit the woodwork a number of times- they are less likely to recall the match when the woodwork wasnt hit.  

I just checked and there was one recent match where I hit the woodwork 5 times, then there was only 1 in the next 4 games- guess which one I remembered?

That s a very fair argument. I think even rarer are goals off the woodwork

I don't think it is a fair argument.

Normally we notice things if they occur enough times to notice them FrazT. I'm sure if I had one game where the woodwork was hit 4 or 5 times, but that didn't happen again for a while, I would forget about it, but it happens over and over.

Just reinstalled after not playing since December. First game of pre-season, hit the woodwork six time,

The memory bias argument is an insult to our intelligence.

Agreed. When people post screenshots of stats showing they have an average throughout the season of 3 woodworks per match, that isn't them just remembering those games where they hit the woodwork a lot.

Given that my team has hit the woodwork 113 times over the past two seasons (about 60 matches per season), I'd say there is some room for improvement... :P

Different play styles result in different experiences.
