Whether it’s fullbacks always choosing the wrong option in 2 vs. 1 situations on FUT 23 Coins the flanks, or AI wingers always sending in wayward crosses on their weaker foot, the monotonous nature that often plays out during FIFA matches vs the AI is hard to overlook. At the highest levels, matches are often won via moments of individual brilliance by extraordinary players, and even on Legendary difficulty the AI follows the same predictable patterns. When players like Messi, Neymar and Hazard are easy to contain, it’s time for EA to re-evaluate their approach. 

FIFA could benefit from how FIFA 23’ dynamic attacking players feel on the ball while still taking it to the next level — seeing the CPU’s attack go through these stars. It’s no secret that Chelsea’s attack starts and often ends with Hazard, yet in FIFA he’s often isolated and too passive once he actually does receive the ball. Perhaps a star system like All-Pro Football 2K8 (gold, silver, bronze) would bring some much needed lethalness to the CPU’s attack.

To think that here we are in 2018 and team chemistry doesn’t play a factor in FIFA’s career mode is mind blowing. Leicester City won the Premier League a few years back against tremendous odds largely because of incredible chemistry and top form from their marquee players. Sadly, neither form nor chemistry matters inside of career mode, meaning you can swap formations, players and positions without any sort of punishment.

Moving a left back to striker is a bad idea because he might lack the skills required of FIFA 23 Coins buy that position, but a ratings drop will not occur nor will the team’s ability to jell suffer. In the congested fixture list that is the English Premier League’s December and January calendar, rotating your squad to ensure fresh legs is a much easier task in FIFA than it should be.
