View Full Version : 6th star difficulty
has any notice that the cpu keeps the ball and runs to your corner flag to waste time if their winning.
and every other tackle made is a foul, even the slight nudge by you or the cpu makes:realmad: facking annoying
i guess the timewasting thing just adds to the difficulty and realism, havent seen it myself, only played a few exhibitions on 6* but i shall start an ml on it soon
as for the fouls thing i find the refs in this game a joke. its true that in previous versions we could hammer the tackle button at any time and not cause a foul but this is not what im on about. sometimes the refs give free kicks when there isnt even contact (im not talking about near misses that the game could count as contact - there could be 2 feet between the players and the ref awards a free kick for some weird reason).
the refs are also insanely biased towards the cpu at any level. you can be clean through on goal and they clip your heels and the cpu player doesn't even get booked, just concedes the free kick. other times you can beat a man and play the ball past him, and just as you go past him the cpu defender blatantly either body checks you or trips you up with no attempt to play the ball and the ref doesn't even give a free kick.
yet if the player does this the referee is quick to give a free kick and most of the time punish with a yellow or even red card (although ive never been straight red carded, that was my dad :D)
one second i've never been straight red carded and i've done every tackle in the book, now the ref is to stricked went in for a header and the ref gave them a freekick for no reason wot so ever, it is a joke, it makes the game unplayable to a certain degree really and i don't care what anyone says them ref's r on the computers side always but i have to admit the realism is top nouch but not to much cos i tackle from behind plenty of times and all i've ever got is a yellow, o and i made a tackle side on cleanly got the ball and they got a free kick wot cost me a goal. :(
i've also noticed that the ref blows his whistle for everything, even for the clean tackles that i do...and like you've already said, there does seem to be bias towards the CPU, which is highly annoying...
The constant stoppages for so called "fouls" is frustrating and interrupts the flow of the game, and i wish that the advantage system worked a little better, i've had plenty of great opportunities to break down defenses only for the ref to call back the game to the foul that was committed...
But i'm sure these things will be ironed out for the next installment of this awesome footie season...
