    ?FIFA 20 Pace of the Game

    in my opinion, this year the “pace of the game” is one of the biggest flaws causing many players to dislike this installment of fifa

    with a meta consisting of slow build up play and negative custom tactics (1 depth drop back) it is no wonder many of us fans find fifa 20 boring

    unfortunately this play style is successful and we only need to look as far as the pro scene to prove this… rather than carrying the ball forward out of defence many top tier players chose to retain possession and pass the ball either backwards or sideways (causing many e-sports games to only include a couple of shots by each team)

    and personally as a fan of fifa… i find this BORING

    a way to counter this play style would be through reducing the effectiveness of retaining possession. for example, even when applying team press it is almost impossible to win the ball back against an opponent who is purposely time wasting by passing the ball around his defence… in real life football retaining the ball is not this easy, otherwise we would see 95% of professional matches finish 1-0 with the winning team having 90% possession!
