PBD v NO-PBD

I was playing some games last night, and I believe that you get a fiercer shot if you strike it first time, or same effect if you don't have PBD... as with PBD the ball gets stuck under your feet and slows.

I practiced many goals/shots and it was evident that my strikes were better without PBD!

How do you explain this?

If you leave some distance between the player and the ball when you initiate the shot, the ball speed is higher. Therefore with no pbd, it's easier to make more powerful shots from inside the box.

Seeing as I can't trap the ball for shit, I might not play with PBD anymore!
Hmmm... unsure...

I score 8 vs Amiga yesterday (finally) and although I had PBD on, it was not used!

I like this goal!!

Pefect turn to shoot and score (with NO PBD).

:D

But trapping is far more important without PBD! :?

With PBD you don't need to trap as the ball sticks under your feet making it easier to turn. It's much like playing one of the old football games where the ball sticks to your feet.

Dilemna is yes, PBD does help with the odd goal, where just a closer touch is required for a lil jiggle in the box... then score.

BUT on other hand, the gameplay is also faster in the box without PBD, and as has been mentioned, more powerful shot.

:?

I am still undecided!! Can't we have a version with 'half PBD', so its half "natural" and half pbd all at once??

I hate it when the ball gets stuck under the players feet and you jiggle about all over the pitch and mess up what you were intending to do!

edit... ooops!! Went to QUOTE, and I think I edited the original post by mistake :oops:

Yeah but I'm sure that even Jorn would give you a FFS for putting his name in a top player list. :lol:

Top players don't play in the KOA cup, they qualify for day two of the world cup. :D

Just so you know, Nikos is some sort of manic miner, but can be a horse. Abyss is a spy, Alex has 3 legs. Nobody knows who Mark Holliday is.. yet, but they soon will. BountyBob is a synthetic human. Ely is a real african elephant.
I hope that makes things clearer.
It might seem confusing, but over the years you get to work out who is who.
