    posted a message on Still not sure how to play fifa 17? Any tips?

    So first things first, fifa is near enough all I've played since fifa 04. I've done some truly incredible careers. Built whole teams from a youth set up. Taken teams too the peak of football. Huge winning streaks. Incredible goals. I know how it works and I would say (up until fifa 16) that I'm very good. Since maybe fifa 10, my first season I always struggle. Obviously you learn how the new fifa works and how to score. You adapt too it's mechanics. After 1 bad (literally terrible) season that sometimes had lead to being fired. After that it's fine. It's the start of incredible careers that fully immerse me. So, the problem. Fifa 16 was a complete right off. That came, went and can be forgotten. It's the first fifa for a very very long time that I havent liked and I haven't done a career mode. Trust me I tried. Maybe 16 times. Different teams. Different leagues. It just didn't work.  I coulent play it. I couldn't score. I couldn't win. I couldn't do anything. Fifa 17 comes out. It's a lot better. Very simular but it feels like they've just refined 16 and improved everything I hated. BUT. I still have absolutely no idea how to play it. I just can't adapt. Again, I can't score. I can't play. I can't win. And it's not like I don't know how, it's just nothing happens. No opportunity to do a certain thing happens for you to do that certain thing. It's like the game just doesn't allow me to play how I play.  I play aggressive football. I always try win the ball back as soon as I lose it. If i don't win it back I'll just pack the midfield and sit back. Once I do get it back I like to just hit them on the counter. If it doesn't work or there's no opportunity to do so, THEN I pass it around. I like wing play. Proper wingers that run at defenders down the wing to cross it. Big target men. Partnerships. Center midfielders that just hold the midfield that can pass and shoot. One if which that will just sit in front of the defence. A back 4 that just sit there. Big strong center backs. Basically old school football. But it doesn't allow me to do that. For example if I have the ball on the half way line, there is no movement. If there's the other midfielder in front of me, he's more too the side maybe 2 meters away. I pass to him and my cdm just moves forwards so he's level with him. I pass it to someone else and then that person moves up a little. Which means every pass is basically forward and with the movement of the person who passes it running 2 meters upfield there's no actual dynamic passing. Everything is forwards. It gets to the point where 'passing back' isn't really passing back because it's the best option in that situation, it's passing back for literally no point. It doesn't create a better situation. It basically resets all that build up for you to just do it all over again. For everyone to start moving slightly forwards again. There's no purpose too the back passes. Shooting. I can shoot. I can score. It's just the situation too shoot and score never happens. With all this pass and and move foreward stuff that seems to happen it basically pushes the whole opposition back so I'm trying to play through 11 people.obviously then it's hard. I just cannot create opportunities to score because I also can't create the opportunity, to create the opportunityto score. If that makes sense? There's just no purpose. Nothing happens. Every match is either a draw or they score some stupid goal. So basically what I'm asking is if any of you have sussed it out and learned how to play fifa 17 just tell me what you've learned. Even its one small little tip. Anything you have I'll take. I really want this too happen. I hope all that makes sense and you understand what I mean.
