    Here you go fellas. Shoot.

    Note: No chat in here. Please post questions only.

    I'll start with my simple ones:

    1- Is it attribute based like PES?
    2- Do players still feel "too light" and hop about with no weight specially when dribbling and changing directions?
    3- Scoring feels good and not just "hey, i just scored.."?
    4- Any sweet spots for scoring?
    5- Shooting feels good?

    Also please report on any CM improvements.

    TikTikTikTikTik's questions,

    1) Do the manual cheat goals still exist? These are the chipped through balls being really high, accurate lobs and the early crosses being powerful curling shots (with loads of sweet spots). Probably a difficult one to answer unless you've seen them in FIFA 10 (you would have done of you played manual ranked matches).

    2) Can you beat players with just the left stick, instead of having to do tricks such as stepovers/feints.

    3) Is skill dribbling (LT+RT) more effective? I felt that it was a nice addition to FIFA 10 and had a lot of potential and could be used to great effect sometimes but it was too unpredictable/unresponsive making it risky to use.

    4) When playing on semi/manual against someone on assisted, do you feel like you are at a disadvantage?

    5) Does the defensive AI still let you pass the ball from anywhere on the pitch to the feet of your striker?

    6) Can you strike a powerful shot from standing still? The most obvious example of this needing improvement is when you hit a cross to an unmarked player in the box, they stand there waiting for it but if you try to volley first time it will usually be hit into the ground with little power. You should be able to really whack the ball in that situation.

    7) Can you use the momentum of the ball when going for goal? An example of this in real life would be when a cross gets driven in at pace and all the striker needs to do is get a slight touch with his head or toe to almost certainly beat the keeper.

    8) Do finesse shots have more power? Can you trouble the keeper from distance with them?

    9) Is the teammate AI still as predictable? In FIFA 10 even with "free form" on, it still seemed very rigid.

    most important answer to me!!!
    players tend to move more freely without the ball or only run up and down?

    Good questions so far you two - I'm gonna do my best to test the 'whore' tactics ala FIFA 10 as best as possible. Pressure, ping-pong, chipping, manual lobbing, backpost corners, and so forth.

    1) Is stupid chesting toned down?

    2) Is defensive clearing more rushed?

    3) Is player switching less forced?

    4) Are there less stumbles?

    5) Do players from the same team still run into each other when attacking?


    1) Do they still make gliding saves on erroneous crosses (=easy balls)?

    2) Are they aware of who touched a ball last? (letting a ball go for goalkick/kicking one away for corner)


    1) Is it flv or controllable replays? (I keep hearing both things)

    *How is off-the-ball movement? In particular, do fullbacks make more overlapping runs, and do AMs make threatening runs into the box?

    If you have a freekick, and the opposition puts a defender on the goal line, will your team automatically step up and fill the space in the box?

    How easy/difficult are freekicks? 09 level (pretty impossible for me), 10 (way too easy) or WC (seemed to have a decent balance to me).

    1)Can we customize defensive set pieces ? More precisely can we get full backs and short players in general covering both posts during corner kicks and not CBs who are vital in those situations
    2) Is manual shooting and passing still as sensitive as before ? I mean a little variation in angles (less than 10°) can result in 2 very different direction for shots.
    3) Is it possible to hit FKs C.Ronaldo/Drogba/Juninho style (not the stance and run-up) with the crazy unpredictable trajectory ?

    I can guarantee that the free kick wobble won't be in. Also the issue with centre backs being put on the post hasn't been fixed, I don't think. Certainly it wasn't in Guildford and I haven't heard anything suggesting they will get round to fixing it on time.

    - What is the frequency of players using their wrong foot to pass/shoot?
    - Does a wrong foot shot or pass have a meaningfull difference to accuracy/power? Is it obvious?
    - Does the stab / outside of the foot pass occur too often in your opinion?

    Is there a way to judge a player quickly other than overall rating? Such as a PES-esque hexagon thing?
    Personality+ is nice, but unless there's something like that you will only really be able to take advantage of it for teams you know well.

    Is there anyone from here at GamesCom?

    @ Lami, I know it isn't about gameplay but it's technically still a question :P

    As Anthony and others have said I too will try to get as much info as possible, being an off line player I'm going to push for MM play if I'm allowed if not I'll try and wangle some 1vAI play to watch the AI, I think we will have plenty of reports on how the game plays from 1v1 players...

    That's if I find anywhere to park...:BRMM:

    See if you can get some 1 v AI matches that are not just friendlies, but in MM or Tournament modes. Their AI plays differently (cheats more) in non-friendly matches, so playing non-friendlies will give a more accurate reflection of what it'll be like. Cheers.

    Can more than 1 person go for a header as promised or was this feature scrapped?

    Any manual players that are going that can try out to see if they notice much difference now with the Pro Passing (error in accuracy)? It's probably hard to tell since you don't know if you held your stick wrong or if it was stat based error, but any impressions of if the manual controls feels different would be appreciated.

    Would also be cool if people could look for more than 2 people going up for headers that EA said was in this year, because I haven't seen it happen once in any of the videos. I guess in theory it can happen now, but maybe the AI is coded to never attack the ball with two people anyway.

    Thank you.

    someone try and chip lob with through ball and the long pass button please?

    any improvement on player switching?

    does the ref have the same colours as one of the team?

    does the goal keeper have the same colour top as the opposition?

    Are the radar colours accurate to the colour of that teams kit?

    Can you still ping pong pass?
