FIFA 18 fans are suddenly finding it much harder to score goals – and are blaming EA Sports.
Gamers are reporting that shot accuracy has dramatically decreased and attempts on goal are now more frequently blocked.
The complaints come following a new FIFA 18 patch, which makes a number of changes to the gameplay as EA battles through a long list of complaints.
It’s the fourth patch – or update – to arrive on the game, and addresses smaller gameplay issues and random bugs.
The shooting issue, which may or may not be linked to the patch, has caused such a stir that gamers are flocking to Reddit to voice their concerns.
One gamer wrote: “What the hell have they done to this game… I was consistently beating legendary on SB 5-0, 6-1 etc.
“Now I can barely scrape a win. Almost every shot I take I miss, then look at the replay and the ball doesn’t remotely go where I aim. My players miss sitters.”
Another said: “Today I have double tap b shot multiple times and it just skies it when i use no power at all. makes no sense.”
Earlier this month, thousands of angry FIFA 18 gamers backed a petition calling on EA Sports to ‘fix’ the game.
It comes as the #FIXFIFA movement continues to gather momentum, which calls on EA to make a number of substantial changes to the game.
