NK FOOTBALL © - We're back!

Senior Squad
Hello to you all.

You'll be happy (or so I hope) to know that I will be releasing a new update over the coming weeks to really enhance your gaming experience.

Please take the time to give me feedback on the fifa 08 gameplay (pc-dvd) and what you want to see updated.

Is the game too easy, not balanced, ball physics need tweaking, shooting too easy, not enough unjuries or fouls? Let me know asap and I'll get to work.

Thanks guys,
NK.

The biggest problem is the human GK, he's just rubbish.

Another problem could be that your teammates don't run to open spaces much.

Another one is the AI isn't aggressive enough, their defense is always tight and it's almost impossible to shoot from long range.

(all the above refer to legendary difficulty)

Good to see you back for another season NK....

There is definatley not enough free kicks/fouls for us human players. I can go a whole match just getting one free kick - that is definatley not realistic.

I think shooting is sh*t in FIFA 08,
long shots always go to one or other side ...

I tryed with Ronaldinho ,Henry and other top class players,
and long shots always go to left or right side , even no players around me,
I go straith ahead, shot power is medium....

There are 2 ways to end this action:
1.GK catch the ball with no problem or parade
2.Ball go miles in side....


PS
It`s like EA did copy some of your older gameplays (with shooting errors)
Very much like that.

Great to hear that you're back.

I can't wait for a gameplay patch, because the standart gaming is just awful.

And no, the game is not to easy...
I would like to see a non-cheating CPU who makes dribbling through your whole defence. He also passes too much.
And the CPU's goalkeeper is too strong.

the shooting system is ALOT more realistic and ALOT better you just suck at it ATM you have to get used to it. things u should consider in shooting:
1. How fast your player is moving.
2. Angle thee player is facing the net.
3. What foot they are shooting on.
4. how many players around you. (the more defenders near u the more pressure on the player therefore harder to get a good shot)
5.weather.
6. wind direction.
7. etc.

there are tons of factors in shooting now i was **** at first but im getting used to it and starting to own.

Hello NK. I'm glad you'll be working with FIFA again this year. :)

From about 150 matches of experience on World Class difficulty, I feel that the flow of gameplay is biased towards the opponent AI.

Their defensive discipline is pure gold and unseen in previous FIFAs which is a good thing.

The attack AI is "ok." Needs a little tweaking in their goalscoring methods. Ie; the opponent CPU only scores these breakaway goals. In 150 matches, the CPU has scored only one longshot against me, and NO HEADERS at all!
It's all very repetitive.

In my opinion, the opponents defence should not be tweaked because it's very good and balanced. The attack should be tweaked a little.

However, what I think is wrong in this year's version, is that the player team's AI is VERY passive when compared to the opponent's whose is great.

I mean, your defence just flocks on the CPU attacker with three players, literally not trying to tackle at all. And when you select one defender from the flock and try to take the ball off the attacker yourself, it makes no difference because he just automatically tries to tackle too early which results the opponent just running through the defence, because it's so passive!

The passiveness also shows in your attacking gameplay. Team mates don't try to position themselves any better and don't make nearly any runs. They just stand there.

Also, the higher you set the difficulty, the more all the physics and ball behavior is biased against the player. Ie; the CPU wins more of the loose balls and so on and tackles from BEHIND with great frequency and success! :(

Currently I play on Professional because it's more balanced and REALISTIC than the higher levels because it doesn't base 'difficulty' on unrealistic things such as biasing the physics against the player. The player defence is still just horrible, though. It was great in 07. I don't understand why EA messed it up!?

I hope you take my experiences into account for your gameplay patch! :)

Cheers

EDIT:

PS: The shooting is VERY GOOD this year so I think it doesn't need very much tweaking! (except on opponent AI's part)
I get long shot goals frequently enough, and frequently not. It's balanced. :)

Hey Buddy,

Good to see you decided to do a Fifa 08 gameplay enhancement.

First make the Human GK on par with the CPU GK.

Second try to make the players run into open spaces,Usually they are at the defence line when i have to set up an attack.

Make the shooting little better so that we can see few well struck long shots go in.

Well i guess thats it.Rest everything is perfect.

i'm not full of **** i know ALOT more about soccer than you do. and ive also played ALOT more soccer than you have. the PC still needs a lot of fixing gameplay wise. but the shooting system in realistic. long shots need a bit of fixing but not that much.

the CPU always passes back and forth and runs along the wings and does crosses. thats their only style of offense, at least on the x360 version

Your a total asshat. How do you know how much someone else knows or how much "soccer" they have played. Just STFU already then.

youre totaly wrong ^^
thre shooting is bad,CPU doesnt shoot..just pass the ball

I totally disagree.

When you play on higher difficulty levels,And if you give them a chance they'll take it and try to score.Thats realistic and thats how it should be.Otherwise it would have been just like fifa 07.
