  1. Whatever you say but tackle is not working at all whatever I try. MAYBE they works somehow but is impossible to get close to the running attacker to do it. If I press the shoot button B the player only stops and makes a hilarious movement, if I press and hold LT still not doing anything that can help. Another huge problem is that the goalkeeper is not defending at all, no matter what button I press he just stops and watch the ball going into the goal.

  2. this article is very helpful. but i installed a new fifa 17 patch. my pc can no longer identify my pad for me to play using the pad. when i start the game, it only give a keuboard option

  3. Seriously… what lunatic moves with a numpad instead of arrows and uses arrows for things like an offside trap? Dear EA if you really don’t want fifa 17 to be sold around you shouldn’t have made it. Good thing you made demo though… for people to see that ea is not able to make normal controls. I dont even wanna know what is the rest of the game like.
