EA Sports’ New Update For FIFA 19 Massively Nerfs Overpowered Bicycle Kicks

EA Sports has started to roll out a new update for FIFA 19 to introduce some big changes to the experience.

According to a post on the FIFA Forums, the publisher is set to address several areas across the title, including the audio and visuals.

One of the standout improvements coming to the title is bicycle kicks, which many FIFA fans have had mixed feelings on.

"The following issues were addressed for volleys where the player fully leaves the ground during the kick, such as a bicycle kick," EA explained.

"Some players were incorrectly taking these kicks without meeting the Agility attribute requirements to do these kicks contextually.

"To further explain the above, these types of kicks can happen, in appropriate situations, for players who have an Agility attribute of 80 or higher, or who have the Flair Trait, without the player having to hold down the 'Flair Shot' button.

"These kicks were happening in unrealistic situations, such as when the kicking player was bunched up with other players.

"Sometimes the animations for these kicks were happening too fast for some players with higher Agility attributes.

"These kicks are now more likely to be impacted by error resulting in potentially less accuracy, speed and spin.

"The above effect will be more noticeable in situations where executing one of these kicks would be very hard, and less noticeable in situations where executing one of these kicks would be easier."

If you're interested, EA Sports has provided even more details on how bicycle kicks will now work on its website.
