IMPROVE. ENFORCE. For your convenience requests were divided into three categories – fix, improve, enforce. First of all we want some issues to be corrected. Some features have to be enhanced. And of course we want some innovations to be added. ANIMATIONFIX Sharp transitions between animations (players regroup too quickly) Sharp changes of direction Some animations look unfinished Some animations are too sharp and some of them are too slow Sliding (players run as if they are weightless) Jumps of the GK look constrained (movements are not graceful). Impact between the goalkeeper and the ground is not felt. Terrible animation of GK falling, terrible jumping Horrible animation of tackling The legs movement animations don't match the body position and the player's speed PK system is terrible and the animations on them are seriously bad IMPROVE The animation of shot/pass should match its power (sometimes the shots and passes are too strong and don't quite match the animation of the player, weak swing and mighty shots/passes) Facial expression of emotions, gestures (more emotions, more nerve, more drama) ENFORCE Animations of the physical contact Animations of goalies’ saves Animations of shots Small connecting animations (there are sharp transitions between animations without it) Defenders don’t try to play on rebounds, but offensive players do. AI (COM)FIX Monotonous and predictable offensive play Unnecessary moves in players’ actions (AI sometimes keeps the ball too long, making absolutely unnecessary motions) Sometimes players are off the episode (especially the defenders after through passes) The goalkeepers don’t rush out the goal line towards striker. Slow reflexes of goalkeepers Players don’t fight for the ball, they act passively on defense. Sometimes they just pretend they fight for the ball Players don’t act safely. They don’t try to get away from dangerous sliding tackles. AI acts very confident and almost with no mistakes Goalkeepers positioning AI performs super-efficient through-passes (from the center and from the sides), while the defensive line doesn’t have time to respond AI demonstrates unrealistic good vision of the field, and instantly makes decisions (most of them are correct) Most of passes go directly to the players legs (few passes go to the area) Players don’t come towards the ball, in order to prevent interception Players block the shots with delay A small number of crosses Teams don't try to use intentionally the strengths of some of their players, such as advantages in height, speed, and so on AI doesn’t actually use R2 dribbling, preferring to jerk from side to side IMPROVE Focus of the players Human factor (more mistakes and inaccuracies depending on players stats) The density and compactness of the game (AI afford you to play too much time with the ball) Tenacity on defense Coverage (players help each other, trying to cover the open zones as soon as possible) A smarter AI-controlled coach, who makes decisions based on current situations Try to properly implement the system Heart from PES14. The condition of footballers should depend on the footballers successful or unsuccessful actions. This would make players to approach to the game more responsibly. Fight for position by AI on reception of the ball ENFORCE Intentional fouls The use of feints, R2-dribbling(not just juking from side to side) Varying pace of the game (boost/recession in the overall pace of the match) Positional attacks Use of the entire width of the field (the diagonal passes, crosses, etc.) If you keep playing the same way on offence, AI should adjust its defense and play properly. Strikers should make pressure on GK. More technique shots (not with R2) THE MECHANICS OF THE GAMEFIX High, monotonous pace of the game Maximum speed of the ball after shot and passes is too fast The ball is bounded to the leading leg of the player. It’s very easy to control the ball at high speed. Solo runs are very effective. There are almost no mistakes while dribbling/feints (the physics of the ball and its movement depended on the players current animation) The ball is unbelievably fast and smooth after low crosses, passes The default ball speed is too high Players easily adjust to the ball (including if the ball is in the air) Players easily take the ball under control (especially after strong passes) Players shift the ball from foot to foot easily (including when the ball is in the air) Passing has an unrealistically low trajectory (the ball never leaves the ground) and it's unrealistically fast and accurate Unrealistic (fantastic) coordination of players. They manage to keep the balance in difficult situations. (the way players sprint at full speed and yet they are able to perform a full stop in half a second without losing balance) The GK never jump with full stretch (his hands are always slightly bent) Players are too skilled. (players sometimes are unrealistically agile, without losing balance). Any player can acrobatically attempt a shot on goal/clear the ball in a defensive move even though they don’t have the appropriate player ability. Ball goes through players. Players go through other players. Delayed control response (actions don’t occur simultaneously with the filling of the power-bar. For example free kicks – the power bar is filling first, and then the player starts running) Low influence of stamina on the actions of the players (fatigue affects only running ability of players. An exhausted player not may make a bad pass, bad tackle, bad shot); countless of accelerations at maximum speed, players don’t require time to recover after a long run at high speed) Goalkeepers manage to fixate the ball even after the strongest shots (the ball sticks to goalkeeper’s gloves) IMPROVE Collisions (more physical gameplay options to block players, and protect the ball) The center of gravity, inertia Ball physics (in particular, its independence from the leading leg of the player, from players motions and body position) Response of control (the animation of shot or pass goes not simultaneously with the filling of the power-bar, but after filling. The power bar fills up too quickly) Sensitivity of control (clear contact with the ball is not felt when dribbling) Feedback of control when passing and shooting (sometimes shots and passes (in these moments the players pass like a hockey stick) are not felt), the collisions between players (the contact between players is not felt) Influence of body position on the success of actions with the ball (more "scuffed" shots and passes from difficult situation) Stamina system. Players can accelerate on maximum speed forever! This is not normal! Need to make PES players to distribute footballers fatigue smarter and implement RPG elements! ENFORCE In-game editor of gameplay Physical game (controlled manually, as in PES 2014), the ability to intentionally knock the opponent to the ground (as in retro PES 3-6, due to the active defense), the control of balance. ONLINEFIX Technical losses for cheaters, when they intentionally make bad connection or disconnection A predefined AI game scenario depending on the score, which player can’t change (players on some episodes are completely out of control, AI control them) Don’t lock out players. Momentum/Bias and Scripting. It completely ruins the Online "Man to Man" competition and makes it useless Remove the timer at the end of a match in myClub/online (in order to see the highlights) IMPROVE An online connection Proper stamina system (to penalize players for pressuring all the game with 3 players) ENFORCE 2 on 2 The ability to cancel replays by mutual consent More settings when creating an online room: the game speed, control type and so on Filter by region (myClub) Filter by the level of teams (Divisions) Equipment (a good system from PES2013) for myClub An ability to put the player's nickname in the black list before playing with him An ability to select teams after your opponent connection. The possibility of cancellation of the match by mutual consent (due to bad connection) Add points depending on difficulty of control. An ability to choose any camera, its settings Inability to watch the off-ball movement by opponent-controlled players Record of yellow and red cards in tournaments ???????? (X yellow Card = suspendet for a match; red card = suspendet for X Match) Online chat during the match in the pauses (with a set of template phrases) Ability to display online players some changes of appearance (hairstyle, accessories, boots) Weekly Challenge matches, based on actual games played (see FIFA 16) Matchday Mode (see FIFA 16) CONTROLSFIX Lobbyballs (L1+triangle) Cursor switching (sometimes cursor switching not to the nearest to the ball player). Don't lock out players The need to use super cancel, as soon as you have the marker over your player is should be in control of him, not the AI continuing to run him along a rail Disable assisted free kick, goal kick and corner kick pointed guide (it's terrible and remove the lines completely) Get rid of simple, 1 button press, defence splitting throughball passes from long distances which put the attacker through 1 on 1 with the goalkeeper Get rid of the double tap knock on and rework it onto the right stick (yes, like FIFA) IMPROVE To reduce the COM assistance in passes to a minimum – manual and 1 bar(tone down the assistance level of this game, as it is killing this game) The response, sensitivity and feedback of control ENFORCE Play Again – Data recording interval (Free Training) Switch attack and defensive levels manually (sometimes when there's a divided ball situation we just want to slide with our players, but the AI detects «i'm on «attack mode» so it will try to get closer to the ball to do a long pass) Request the direct pass and through pass, which can be set on different buttons (for a fixed control) The ability to save presets of tactics in training mode and activate them during the match While defending, select a button (like triangle) to go to a pre-determined player (CB for example, while defending) An ability to make additional acceleration(when push left stick hard) both with the ball and without the ball Manual control of body balance Manual physical play (via the right stick like in PES 2014) Manual low shots with the triangle button (from PES 2014) Auto-moving (while playing for single player with fixed cursor) GRAPHICSFIX Shorts looks like tubes Dull lawn Gloss IMPROVE Player models (the player models in PES2016 are a bit small compared to the large pitch they are playing in) Illumination (at day and at night) Detailing ENFORCE More fictional stadiums Fan-sectors (with waving flags, etc.) New styles of goal net (net color, shape and net tension) SCRIPTSFIX COM often doesn't play on the situation, but on preseted scenario Players don’t tend to get the ball or get to the goal on the shortest possible way (they move as if on rails) Players don’t accelerate when it is necessary (on the contrary, they unreasonably slow movement); example – when on a counterattack, when trying to seize the ball faster than opponent Nearest to the ball player does not always react on the ball. He don’t try to get it. Stupor of the players (the players tend to just stop moving, as if they are reloading, especially after collisions) Sometimes it feels like the players are a wagon on a railroad, only able to move one direction High effectiveness of dribbling and shooting using R2 Shots, pass and dribbling are very precise (no dispersion) The balance of the game is broken (much easier to attack than defend) Solo runs are very easy (nobody defend properly). Defensive line has to go ON the ball and can’t let the opponent pass through to score a goal. Players can be very easily outplayed 1 to 1 (defenders neither try to get the ball nor make any pressure after they got outplayed) Monotonous and predictable offensive play of COM. (players don’t try shoot in the near corner, don’t try to dribble, don’t try to shoot under the crossbar) High efficiency of tackles High efficiency of through passes High efficiency of the wall game Avoiding of collision (bouncing animation). Eliminates the obvious blocking foul Super-cancel slows down the player Inability to hit the ball into a striker when throwing the ball by GK Scripted goal celebrations (in the form of template cut-scenes) Tactical substitutions When the ball is on the center of the field (a goal scored or the beginning of a half) players of the defending team stand still and allow strikers to go forward (the defense starts just near the penalty box) Goalkeepers reflect powerful shots in far corner, butconcede weak, low shots IMPROVE Change handicap with the ladder system (see Starcraft 2). Don't lock out players ENFORCE - BROADCAST, CUT SCENES, REPLAYSFIX Slow speed of replays The cut-scene actions don't continue the episode before them No replays of side episodes, there are only key episodes on the replay (such episodes as dramatic dribble, hitting the post and a number of other situations are not shown) IMPROVE - ENFORCE Seamless broadcast of the match in real time, without black screens and delays between frames. After the ball goes out for a throw-in, the players remain on the same positions they were before, not where they should be by default. This leads to the loss of pace of the attack! A button for manual instant replay. Disable automatic repetition after every shot or foul. It's annoying and there's a lot thing that you want to see more than a shot or foul. An ability to save highlights of matches and replay them after. Various cameras (Replay mode) REFEREESFIX Small amount of minor fouls The animation of dodging the contact instead of a blocking foul (this eliminates minor fouls) IMPROVE The adequacy of refereeing (the referee doesn’t assess the degree of violation of the rules: instead of yellow card – nothing, instead of red card – yellow) ENFORCE Actual fair play Various nationalities and different levels of tolerance Yellow card by aggregate amount of fouls Offensive fouls Blocking fouls Aerial fouls FANS, THE ATMOSPHEREFIX - IMPROVE More emotional audience's reaction to the episodes whistling, clapping, exhaling, shouting and other crowd reaction to what is happening (the default English crowd is horrible). Applause for successful actions. ENFORCE Highlighted fan-sectors (with flags etc.) Snow, smoke, winter outfit Real players on the bench To be continued.
