The defense is easier. Or at least, supporters are now better equipped to win the ball and compete against attacking players. slipped tackles have regained some of the old power; players really slipping again, which means it is possible to win the ball from the unexpected distance. well timed toe-pokes, meanwhile, can satisfyingly break the game while the desperate moments give players more options players intentionally foul just before they break in space (which is usually severely punished, but so much fun). I was caught by the defenders when I thought I was out of reach, I won the ball with crunching tackles block at fullback, and I used the slide to channel the runners by blocking their path . This new, stronger tackles slides, more flexible is a success.
Other notable additions to the defense comprise a feint attack for opponents against tricksy-baiting during one-on-one fights. No longer does the crab-protection-ball offer raises an impenetrable defense; it is easier to slip around players in possession of the ball and then get a foot to it. Perhaps most important of all, the defender AI has been refined to more interceptions and track runners with greater fury.
These points are those who really contribute to the most obvious change in FIFA 16; that the midfielder is now a battlefield. Work the ball in the middle of the park feels attritional and muddy, full of physicality and friction. More than ever, it is a game of inches and steals, with advocates pushing themselves towards the ball as much as possible, pressing and loin and reach the feet. There may be disjointed, with miscontrols and slippers overthrow messily around for a few seconds at a time, but it feels like an organic kind of disorder, a disorder of football.
In response to all this, there are tools to make offensive midfielder still fight, if an asymmetric. No-touch dribbling adds another layer to the game skill system, allowing players duck and feint on the ball, looking to send defenders the wrong way. This is nice, but so far for me, not very effective; I rarely had enough space in the field of dance on the ball and on the wings, I went to the old reliable fine overs. But more integral is the new precision passing system, which effectively introduces a disk password, pinged that can be pulled off by holding R1 (RB). It is clearly designed as a sheet, midfield interception sticky subject, and it comes with an element of risk and skill. Lesser players are more likely to search these stinging passes, and judging angles, capacity and distance adds a new dimension to the essence of the piece of FIFA.
The result of this is that FIFA 16 is full of scrappy forward and backward, the possibility of playing patient possession football, and a greater range of passing than ever. The predominance of rhythm in the game last year is over, although sometimes it seems as if it was offed by foul means, with bulletproof, for example, is obviously feeling restricted, not wanting to put clear lines or players or above defenses. But most of the time the new game style – slow, gritty, but qualified – seems like it has been achieved through food rather than nerf.
And everything is in terms of its gameplay pillars, which probably is the area on which I place the greatest importance in judging the FIFA. But the success of FIFA in recent years has been as much to do with the collection and Ultimate Team compulsions of commerce as it was about real (seeming) football. So the arrival of draft mode, an important addition to Ultimate Team, is also worth a good look.
The draft mode is outside of the main business of buying packaging, building teams and play against online opposition. It is like a premium single entry Ultimate Team tournament in which players build a temporary team position by position, opening a pack for each location and decide which player inside best fits the part being built. The team finished then played against players of other projects with larger than usual rooms rewards for a winning race (the maximum streak is four wins).
