Kicking too easy after nerf?

Does anyone feel that kicking has been nerfed to the point that it's practically automatic again? Please stop EA.

Re: Kicking back to automatic, why?

I thought it was already automatic. in my first season straight out of the box I went 21 for 21 with Cody Parkey. Im disappointed they made it easier - but its what a lot of people did want (many complained about the kicking) so maybe it was the smart thing to do.

It's ridiculous. They need to give the sim players a slider that works. It's broken though. Anything under 30 is an auto shank and everything above 30 is always good. It's a shame that in 2016 we have these issues. News flash EA field goals and do are not automatic in the NFL. How can we get a fix to this? Game killer in. My opinion.

What really grinds my gears is that this is vintage EA bait and switch. I would have never bought the game if fgs were automatic. It's been killing the game for years. But I did my due diligence. I asked the questions, read the reviews and had confirmation that there was a new kicking mechanic and missed fgs and xp. Now they killed it to appeal to the online whined crowd who doesn't want realism. I want a refund.

Lets not forget that the special teams sliders are STILL universal in CFM. Even if we wanted to make kicking tougher for the user we can't due to it effects the CPU even more.

Re: Kicking back to automatic, why?

Also, the accuracy bar is freakin huge now! You would have to be blind to miss field goals now.

JayD didn't report back from his answer from Clint on Twitter:

that's not what our metrics are showing,

So, instead of shaking your fist or finger at EA, blame the people who don't practice enough with the new mechanic.

JD followed with a question about adding a slider in the future to slow down or increase the kick meter:

Clint's response:

I would really like to!

Mason Crosby has missed 4 XP's his entire 9 plus year career and was perfect last year and is currently perfect.

He is also currently a 80%FG kicker. I mentioned a missed a 55 yarder into the wind at Lambeau after the patch. That isn't automatic to me.

Just my thoughts.

If anyone has access to ea please tell them their fga slider is broken. If they have to make easier for the 13 year olds online at least give me the option to customize my game.

I'm not even sure why they changed the kicking mechanic if the end game was to have automatic field goals.
