Official FIFA 12 Bitching Thread

Any rants with the game upon its release should be placed in this thread to reduce forum clutter.

Keep it civil. As offensive posts will no doubt be deleted.

Not being able to get on the UT web app. I tried on thursday evening but it was to busy. Played the game over the weekend so didn't try getting on. Tried about 20 mins ago and it was still to busy. My mate has had no luck over the weekend. This is bs. It was obvious that from tuesday (when it came out in the states) it was going to get busier, now six days later with everyone else getting it, its crap that its not been sorted.

Also, the constant spamming of one-twos online. I dont mind people using them, but when every pass you do is one its very frustrating.

The constant glitches with cheevos. People being able to unlock them on UT, others not. Its a joke.

It's when you pass the ball to your player and he passes it back that's a one-two and that's what happens online and you just keep running around like headless chickens.

PKs do seem ultra-easy to get. Nearly every time I pull my goalie...RED CARD! PK!

My one big complaint would probably be passing...especially in-the-air through passes.

Used to be that you just held LB, tapped Y, and they would chip the ball up in the air and to the next closest attacker. Very efficient if there was a defensemen blocking you from doing a ground pass, on a 2 v 1 break-away.

But now, for whatever reason, whenever I do this, my player turns around 180 degrees and kicks it out of bounds, or to a wing player BEHIND him...completely the opposite way that my open guy is. (Even if that guy is completely on sides!)

Playing clubs 2 - 0 up with 2 mins to go & the EA servers disconnects one of us. No danger here we think as EA say they analyse disconnections on score, possession etc to award a final score.... Except they don't & we get credited with a 3 - 0 loss. Good times

The AI for any team on world class is ridiculous - I have to wait for the opposition to score to have a kick of the ball!!!

Press B when the ball is in the air, after holding and pressing X in the direction of the player you wish to head the ball. I hope this clears that up. .

I think he means that the likelihood of heading the ball seems to have gone down. They used to happen all the time, yet they're much more rare now.

Well now letís see....

1. Trying to get onto UT on the internet and I keep on getting:


'Sorry!

We have reached the maximum number of users who can log into FUT Web.

Please try again later.'

Really EA?

2. The slowness at the menus, particularly when you first load the game. It should be no more than a few seconds - at most!

3. These new defending mechanics. Fine vs. human players, in fact I like them. But vs. CPU they are a waste of time (particularly the one where you just hold ). Think I need to learn some sort of special finger yoga to press all the buttons I need at the same time.

4. The new impact engine. Rag doll physics in a football game? Went one on one with the keeper, keeper dove at my feet to get the ball and when he stood up my player has stuck to him horizontally.

5. Not being able to play online vs (head to head seasons I think it's called), half the time I get an error saying the squads aren't available and to try again later.

There's more but that's all I can think of for now!

Wacha mean? What controller set up do you use?

I use classic, and all I do is tap B when I'm near the ball. It's really not that difficult.

lol, I agree.

I keep losing my strikers/attackers, and I'm looking around like, "wheretf they go?!", then I see they've collided with someone mid-field, and did 16 flips before hitting the ground.

Just the default set up. I mean with this new tactical defending thing, hold A and your player follows the ball/player with the ball which is pretty much the same as holding LT (I know they aren't exactly the same but they both achieve the same thing). I can appreciate them trying to make it more realistic but IMO they've just made it needlessly complicated. I'm doing the same thing (B when near the ball) but then I'm not using their new tactical defending buttons which they made such a big thing of.

Well, if you don't like having to push all those buttons then don't. It's not necessary.

AX S16's Gamercard
Pro Clubs is so broken (and has been the past couple of years) that its not funny.

With all the "drone" players in your team having such rubbish stats, its too easy for human strikers, (who are always about 5'5" and as light as possible=sprint and acceleration stats off the charts) to blitz past them. Its pointless making your pro anything but a small rapid forward if my previous experiences of pro clubs are anything to go by. Through ball from midfield, the cpu defender will dither while the pro runs at full speed, runs in and scores a 200mph shot which your crap keeper has NO chance of saving.

The interfering of the CPU is criminal as well - if a ball is going to one of your idiot non-be-a-pro players, and an opposing pro is going to contest that ball, your player will hold up, take a bad touch, or turn into the pro to afford him a chance at goal.

The fact that the non-pro players who make up your team are so unskilled and slow means that any team who has a greater number of human players is automatically disadvantaged: your ~50 statted midfielder is never going to win against a human pro player. This effect wouldnt be so obvious if your pro was just substituted into the real squad, as per solo career, why cant EA just do this?

I'm annoyed with how you can't be over 6ft and fast, most of the olympic sprinters are over 6ft and Usain Bolt is 6ft 5 I make my pro 6ft 2 and the fastest he can get is mid 70's for pace it's so stupid because I want my pro to be 6ft 2 like me and fast but they can't.

Stick a ball infront of them and then see how fast those olympic sprinters are...

What the funk is with the penalties in this game? I get the ball and Pato falls over after and he gets a penalty 2 minutes later I get destroyed in his box no touch on the ball, no penalty. Makes me want to stab kittens in the face

I'm not really sure...I rarely let the ball get passed my midfielders.

Always end up kicking the ball when I didn't mean to

Every FIFA game I have played, I end up doing this. I go in for a tackle, actually get the ball and then end up shooting from miles away. I know I can change the buttons so this isn't a problem, and there is also the cancel feature (probably bought in to tackle this problem). But shouldn't the default be so this doesn't happen? This has bugged me since the beginning!

The fact that tactical defending basically is nothing new and has been on FIFA from at least '10? I mean the only difference I see is that the function of the B button in the previous iteration is now RB, but all the other defending 'improvements' have more or less been in FIFA for the past two years.
