I can confirm now that the game is playing harder than V7. My apologies for you guys waiting for V7 to be dissapointed by its difficulty, I am sorry :(

I didn't realise until I reverted back to V6 that the balance in the difficulty had been thrown off! Ok ok, so enough of the excuses, I made the update and me and MJ tested it to death and maybe we overlooked it since we played on the same team a lot and this is probably harder than playing solo against the CPU! So, in any case...V7 flopped in terms of difficulty, but if you guys check out the variation in the play I'm sure you'd like to see this in V8. This is what I am doing, taking the improvements made in V7 from V6 and actually building up on V6, tweaking areas that will make it play better and harder, but nothing too extreme to take away the balance created. Like I said it already plays better than V7. But it's all good saying that, it needs to stay this way! I can't see V8 taking too long to develop as I already have all the information I need to make V8. All it takes is tuning here and there. It should be the fastest release update I have done, whether I release a V9 is up to you guys if you see things that need improving, many of you do, although in some cases it's a matter of waiting for FIFA 07 haha.

Take it easy,
NK.

Hi.
In V7 is too easy to take the ball from the opponent players.
I play in semi-pro.
Can you make it harder in V8. I have tested in Professional level and it is much better.

All difficulty modes will be balanced, etc in V8. If Semi-pro is too easy to take the ball, but professional is better, why not play in pro mode? Hmm. I will however make Semi-pro cpu better at keeping the ball.

Cheers,
NK.

The thing we are battling against and im sure NK will agree, is the fact some people are awesome and some people aint that good at fifa so I guess if we make it harder, those players who aint very good are either gonna get good by practacing or get bored of losing.
I guess eventually when the patch is complete, those bad players (lol) will choose amature and semi pro, while the better ones will have world class, or legendary, while professional would be a good bridge between them.
But all will be playable as it is now, i personally believe the patch doesnt need that much more tweaking as the playability is in place. I guess something that NK is finding hard is the fact you can pile loads of shots on goal and not score, then the other team goes other end and pops one in. This is something NK will be looking into in the next few weeks! Anyways catch yalll later. :rockman:

Thanks MJ, this is one of the issues that has just been resolved as of right now! The problem with goalkeepers and striker balancing is one that is always going to niggle its way back and forth as the versions progress! From V1 to V7 the balancing has improved, and in some cases gone back a notch, but now I believe I have come up with a solution and it is one that will leave the game difficult, yet entertaining. It's all to do with;

* difficulty of beating keepers
* how many shots the CPU takes at goal (if they just have a pop or try and make very good chances)
* accuracy of CPU shots
* difficulty of user shots
* defence...how difficult it is to break the defence.
* a few other things here and there and everywhere!

What I have done is taken the values of Legendary V6 and placed it into V8: Semi_pro difficulty (sounds crazy right?), then I have made semi-pro harder and put that information into professional, then made professional harder and put that in world class and then so forth to legendary.

I just played semi-pro England V Brazil and drew 1-1, only to loose on penalties. They had plenty of shots, I did too. No unfair goals, no unrealistic score lines, nothing of the sort. They played very well and it felt like Semi-pro. Now I will test pro, World class and legendary out (I'll find a file to enable it).

Right, back to testing and I think, well...I sure HOPE that you guys will enjoy V8 when it is <b>released sooner than you think!</b> ;)

Hi

I like your update. I have some feedbacks but I won't tell them because they were already said by someone else. Just one new : I think the players' kinetics is unbalanced... I explain : when you make them running, it's more difficult to stop them and then you lose the ball easily or you go out of the pitch. For example, if there is a phase just in front of the goal, you have to be carefull because the players could easily make own goals ! This wasn't the case in V6 version neither in original FIFA06. I don't know if someone have the same advice as me ?
Anyway, keep going with this wonderful work :)

Thank you very much. Well first things first, in V7 the player has more control over twisting and turning, which makes it easier to beat players' and get into them little positions, perhaps I gave users too much control! I believe it became too easy, where as in V6 the game was balanced between CPU and user controlled players' and you could still control the ball and take on a number of defenders...well I can anyway so I know it's possible and there are better players' than me on here! But taking on defenders using skill is something I have trained myself for in FIFA 06, where as I bet some people on here aren't as good as me at that, but can score plenty more goals and break defences quicker. Scoring owngoals in V7 is something I never came across, I actually found it easier to keep the ball from going out of play for throw-ins, etc. So this is a surprise to me. But I'll check it out since I have both V6 and V7! (I did make em' afterall :jap: )

Heya guys and girls,
Would like to tell ya all V8 is gonna blow your minds!!! Played it last night with NK, some very tight games, is a lot harder to score due to the keepers being awesome, but still possible. However still needs a few 'tweaks' but V8 wont be long ;) "hint" :rockman:

I think it's easier when you use the "dribbling" button, then the player stop the ball right away. Without using this button he can move along.
Indeed taking on defenders using skill is much more improved and that's a very good point.

V8: Beta



<span style="font-size:14.0pt">NK FOOTBALL © : V8</span>

<span style="font-size:14.0pt">FIFA™ 06 PLAY-TEST: Direct IP & CPU</span>

<span style="font-size:13.0pt">The following is information regarding the V8 beta;</span>

So far the next instalment is looking much harder to crack
down and win by the big-time scores. Games this far are tighter, harder,
slightly slower and still packed with action if not more. Goalkeepers have been
given a lot more skill between the posts and beating the goalkeeper is much
harder. Direct IP play-test VS MJ FOOTBALL © showed keepers to be perhaps too
skilful and therefore tweaking the AI keeper tuning is now taking place to
balance out the equilibrium between striker and keeper. Keepers are by no means
superman, the saves they make are realistic, it’s just that they are slightly
too good and may cause user frustration. A lot like Codemasters game Club
Football.

Too right! Those games were awesome! Like you said it needs tweaking, the keepers are too good right now. but yeah it will still be much harder to score than in V6 and V7, which is what people want because they find it too easy.

it is much harder to score now! But very possible. I have been playing direct IP this morning V MJ and I think we both agreed that it is much better to score now, but much harder. MJ FOOTBALL © right now is testing a match between Eng v Brazil, 12 min game on the highly improved Semi-Professional difficulty. Every value from V6 legendary is Semi-professional and will probably be improved in places for realism, not difficulty.

MJ FOOTBALL © will post his feedback report here, so watch this space you gamers.

I just played against argentina, won 2-1 but i had to play pretty well. This is on semi-pro and i aint a bad player. 10 - 8 shots, 7 - 5 on target, but they had a red card before half time...fouling buggers. Anyways it was a very very enjoyable game, the release in near!!! :rockman:
Hows everybody doing?
