Passes are a guess game
Most of the time the passes arent targeted for the player I have the joystick pointed to. If I press right and down it's to pass to the player at my right behind me, not for the player at my 3 oclock thats crowded by defenders. On the other side, if I wanna pass to a direction and there's a teammate right on top of me (it happens alot, our own ai teammates leaving no room for playmaking),obviously thats not for that player I want to pass, even if I hold the pass button, the game passes for that player. Also, too often there's a big gap for when the player recieves the puck and is available to pass, a lot of times I want to pass right away but nothing happens, I have the reflexes to do it, but the bug dont let it happen.
