automatic deactivation of ET's when opposition has corner...

Postby Steve1977 » Sun Sep 13, 2009 7:19 pm

Players such as Haydn have displayed their savvy in experimenting with corner routines - routines which people like me have then copied hehe. In every area it's possible to score a goal in kick off, whether it's in open play, a free kick or a corner...well at least it was.
As players have become more and more receptive of using the extra tactics, it's basically nullified the chances of grabbing a sneaky goal back from a set piece. Whilst not 100% fool proof, lockout seems to be 99.9% effective in stopping corner routines and in the process, consigning the time consuming efforts of people like Haydn to the dustbin. With Lockout it still seems possible to score, but the chances of doing so are greatly diminished and all too often, the opposition wins the ball back.

I'm wondering what other peoples thoughts are on this? Maybe this could be added as a JFF option?

My thoughts are twofold. Firstly, Haydn consigned his own efforts to the dustbin when he stopped playing. Secondly, someone just needs to put the same effort in to find corner routines against lockout, that Haydn put in to finding his original routines.

How much time have you spent taking corners? Trying different lengths for the button press? Running the receiver in different directions for each of those press lengths?

To be honest though, corners had become almost as good as penalties under the regular 4 tactics, so it wasn't such a bad thing when ET's were introduced and you could make it more difficult with lockout.

Against CPU lockout, or lockout with human input?

Never tried it vs computers lockout, Bbob. But I have scored a few vs humans. One in the later stages of the last Wcup, actually. I have never (from what i can recall) missed one because of opposition cleared it before the ball reaching my player.

Garry, Im afraid that, just as last time (3-2?) we played eachother, we would see very few corners in one internal fixture.

Have to say that with corners is not a huge thing, a better player will very likely win anyway. But in a fairly close fixture these chances can be decisive. For instance, I doubt i would have won against Klaus earlier this year if it would not have been for my corners.
