If I take a short goal kick while my defender is ahead of his attacker (i.e much nearer to goal kick) without the opponent fully pressing me then how come by the time my goal keeper completes the kick animation (which takes forever) my opponent has started running towards the ball but my defender is brain dead static and just standing there and not coming for the ball or blocking the striker off?
Or when I take a short free kick – if my defender is ahead of the opposition player at the time i press the pass button then why should the delayed animation mean my opposition player gets to ‘anticipate’ the pass while my receiving player is just standing there? You know I am passing the ball to you so why are you just standing there waiting?
It’s been in the game for ages too, can they not see this? You have to sweat when taking a free kick in the middle third when it should be given 90% your possession if it’s a simple non hurried short pass. Not to mention the opposition player never seems to be 10 yards away anyway and they get the benefit of a swift animation while running towards the pass while I the meantime you have to wait for your player to wind up the kick mechanic and then pass wtf!!!
….And yes I’m salty as I conceded a goal kick goal in WL – it never happens to me as I have been burnt enough however in a lapse moment as soon as I pressed X even with no sign of danger at the time I knew my defender was just going to stand there as his attacker ‘read’ my short pass.
I am now convinced there is no way that these guys (Fifa devs) play the game the way an average player does, otherwise they would have been infuriated thousands of times over the years when playing the game to recognise and way to fix this broken mechanic.
I get that it’s not easy to pass out of the back IF opponent is fully pressing you ala Man City 2017 or Barca 2013 however that’s not what I’m talking about here folks, this is full bs where defender is in ‘open space’ but his attacker has the apparent momentum and speed to ‘pick pocket’ a pass 15 yards away while a defender just stands there thinking he has all the time in the world and the player switching is horrendous too meaning I see exactly what’s going to happen but I can’t do anything about it. WTF??
TL:DR How come I start sweating buckets when I get a free kick in my own half? Game is broken
