Timed and Finesse shooting get a major overhaul in FIFA 19's Title Update 7 EA

Shooting Changes and Updates

  • Timed Finesse
    • Fixed an issue where a timed finesse shot would always have less error than a non-timed finesse shot, even in situations where the timed finesse shot was red or yellow. The level of error reduction for a timed finesse shot is now in line with the level of error reduction for other timed shots.
    • The accuracy of a yellow or red timed finesse shot was found to be too high and has been reduced. This change will impact the likelihood of these shots resulting in goals scored.
    • The ball speed of a yellow or red timed finesse shot was found to be too high and has been reduced. This change will impact the likelihood of these shots resulting in goals scored.
  • Timed Finishing Window - Maximum size of the Timed Finishing window for a green timed shot is now reduced. According to the devs, "The hope for these changes is that it will directly address situations where players were finding it too easy to achieve green timed shots that were coming from a long pass, a cross, or when queuing up a shot after a knock on during a run. The impact of this change will scale with a higher impact on shots where the time between the initial button press to take the shot and the button press to perform Timed Finishing is longer. For example, a first-time finesse shot where the ball is coming from a long distance away, or when queuing up a shot after a long knock on during a dribble."
  • Yellow Timed Shots Effectiveness - Yellow timed shots effectiveness were reduced for this new update. According to the devs, "We received feedback that yellow-timed shots were too often resulting in a goal and adjustments were made to reflect a more consistent outcome where these types of shots are now more likely to be impacted by error resulting in potentially less accuracy, ball speed and ball spin."
  • Power Finesse Shots - Reduced the effectiveness of higher powered finesse shots, both timed and non-timed shots. According to the devs, "We received feedback that powered finesse shots (both timed and non-timed) were too often resulting in a goal and adjustments were made to reflect a more consistent outcome where these types of shots are now more likely to be impacted by error resulting in potentially less accuracy, ball speed and ball spin."
  • In-Box Near Post Shots - Building further on changes made in Title Update 3, this update further reduces the likelihood that a shot which was correctly aimed into the net, and that was targeting a location near to the post, would miss the net in a shooting situation where the attacking player is under no defensive pressure and is not off balance.
  • Goalkeeper Movement - Goalkeeper movement speed when being controlled by manual movement was reduced in this patch. The impact of this will be higher when using manual movement during open play and lower when in set pieces situations (corners and free kicks). Goalkeepers will now maintain a ready posture when being controlled by manual movement through the right stick controls. You can see some of the effects of this change in the video below.

Career Mode Changes and Updates

  • Overall Rating Fixed - After the last patch an issue with both Manager and Player Careers occurred where players were unable to grow their overall rating and instead was showing as -1 overall in multiple screens. This issue has been resolved with today's changes.
  • Fixed Career Mode 'Win The League' Award - In Player Career, finishing in first place in your league at the end of the season was not properly awarding the Win The League accomplishment.
  • Fixed Emirates FA Cup Final Match Schedule - This update fixes an issue with the Emirates FA Cup Final Match being scheduled the day before the final match of the Premier League season (This fix will not impact existing Career Mode save files, only new Career Mode save files).

Pro Clubs Updates and Changes

  • Fatigue Reduction Changes - The fatigue reduction that is applied to a Pro Clubs player when it was being controlled by someone locked to a position has now also been applied to the players when they are being controlled by someone playing on 'Any'.
  • Club Squad Screen Fixes
    • In Pro Clubs, the Club Squad screen was not displaying the stats for each member of the club on the panel on the left side of the screen. Title Update 7 fixes this issue.
    • Sometimes a Pro Clubs Virtual Pro's overall rating was incorrect when displayed in the Pro Clubs hub screens. Title Update 7 fixes this issue.
