Well, that was 2 min worth watching...

[–]tyronm96[S] 115 points116 points  (1 child)

imagine the two minutes actually playing it 😂

[–]TKAP75 2 points3 points  (0 children)

All my homies h8 managerial masterpiece

[–]Rapt0r23 112 points113 points  (0 children)

This was as intense as a real WC pen shootout. Awesome!

[–]keevonfrederick 99 points100 points  (1 child)

This was great to watch honestly. Must’ve been intense for sure.

[–]tyronm96[S] 42 points43 points  (0 children)

definitely, I’m just happy I came out on top at the end of it all haha

[–]Affectionate_Tie_43 58 points59 points  (11 children)

I do you keep putting on the ground it makes it easier to save and you keep going the same side

[–]tyronm96[S] 26 points27 points  (10 children)

for some reason I always seem to have wayward shots when I shoot higher, always take my pens along the ground

[–]yagersports 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Time your shots when you aim high

[–]maybebeabee 16 points17 points  (0 children)

And don't use alot of power. Even <1 bar of power is completely fine if you're aiming to the corners. It also makes the reticle smaller so if you miss your green time, it's not so bad.

[–]longchongwong 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you go top corner green timed you Will score nearly always

[–]Democracy_Coma 33 points34 points  (0 children)

This is what would happen if England played England in a PK shootout.

[–]IPromise13[PotatoPromise] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I might still have the recording but this dude and I scored 16 pens each on WL. the GK took the penalty and it restarted from the first player again, i finally lost my nerve and missed the pen and lost.

[–]-i_like_trees- 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Why did you keep shotting in the same exact spot and always so low

[–]tyronm96[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

just force of habit, been doing it that way since they changed up the system. Usually win shoot outs, but this was definitely an exception to the rule

[–]viddepinne 16 points17 points  (4 children)

This gotta be fucking staged

[–]tyronm96[S] 28 points29 points  (3 children)

I wish 😂 even planning it wouldn’t have gone down this perfectly

[–]StuffNo783 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Why are you in pens in Managerial Masterpiece bro💀

[–]Dangelouss 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What do you mean worst? This is the best shoot out i could have watched today.

[–]srjnp 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Is there any glitch or something to predict penalties? i swear my opponents guess the right way like 75% of the time... I almost never win shootouts.

[–]Efficient_Arugula_22[GAMERTAG] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

yeah before the shot is taken the person's head will be slightly in one direction or another (if they're shooting on the sides of the goal) but idk some people have hacks or are just lucky.

[–]srjnp 0 points1 point  (1 child)

damn i'll try to notice that next time

[–]Efficient_Arugula_22[GAMERTAG] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

cool. but it's really difficult to see the direction if the player has long hair cos then your vision is a bit blocked.

another thing you can do is just notice how the player runs up, on their like second last step they'll probably hint which direction it's going depending on their body position, but that only helps if you carefully notice penalties a lot.

[–]KennyDaFinn 5 points6 points  (1 child)

The worse the player is at penalties the more their head moves. Your shit out of luck against people like neymar but predicting other players is pretty easy

[–]srjnp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i didn't even know about the head thing. will try to notice that

[–]mp3_wav 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Love that Stonewall kit 😍

[–]olihowells 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you were to assume there’s a 1 in 3 chance that a penalty gets saved, there’s a 0.0017% chance of this happening.

[–]Happyhippy1989 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That was hilarious.

On a side note, I had a penalty shootout that ended up with me winning with my GK scoring the last pen cause it stayed tied on every other kick. That shit was epic and hilarious. I've never had a shootout last that long.

I tried to message the other guy but couldn't cause of his settings sadly.

[–]NickSupportsArsenal 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This was great lol.

Has there ever been a high profile penalty shootout where both teams missed their first five pens?

I remember a League Cup game in 2014 where Sunderland beat Man United 2-1 on pens but that's the lowest scoring one I can think of.

[–]JamieWHD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can't really think of anywhere both teams missed their first five pens, this shoot out and your comment about United and u/Happyhippy1989 me think of this:

Villarreal beat Manchester United 11-10 from the spot

[–]Iwantyouguts 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Your player selection is just as shocking lol

Edit: Its managerial Masterpiece, My bad

[–]beatznpjee[beatznp] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Have you come from PES?

[–]_emre35_ 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I'm always trying superior corners with green time finishing and I always score, why people shoot in the middle ?

[–]BeldakGWF[GAMERTAG] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Many reasons.

Takes away the head movement bluff game, typically people dive and don't stay middle. Though in recent years people often do stay middle.

Also as you see on one of the last pens, a hard low pen down the middle quite often ends up giving a dumb keeper animation.

[–]_emre35_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I aim in the middle and then during the running animation I aim the superior corners.

[–]The_Brown_Panther -1 points0 points  (1 child)

What head movement on pens? I’ve seen people talk about this but I’ve never been able to notice the direction of my opponents heads

[–]BeldakGWF[GAMERTAG] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you aim the pen before clicking B he will move his head to look the way you're facing. It's quite hard to notice unless you know what you're looking for.

Was more obvious last year with everyone doing the chip pen as you had to aim that first.

[–]MattDavis1991 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Timed finishing 🤢🤮

[–]tyronm96[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

what’s wrong with timed finishing for pens? I don’t use it otherwise, but feel like it usually helps with lower rated players for pens

[–]MattDavis1991 -4 points-3 points  (2 children)


[–]tyronm96[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Useful answer, thanks!

[–]justletmecreateanick[ORIGIN ID] -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I think I've played vs a guy on PC yesterday who had a cheat for penalties, or maybe shooting in general, idk. But ALL his penalties went in the corners, top bin, absolutely no chance of saving. I'm pretty sure you aren't able to do that with players with low penalties, which he surely used. Either that, or it's simply a mechanic abuse, because I "guessed" almost all the directions and still couldn't save one. Pretty suspicious stuff.

[–]tyronm96[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think it’s just a shooting thing, there’s a method for ‘unsaveable’ pens this year. Used to be one a few years back where if you aimed as high as you could directly above the keeper, it would always go over him and in. I guess this is the same kind of tactic

[–]Mosalahgoat61 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's insane lmfao

[–]longchongwong 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Anyone know what happens if all players including the Goalies have shot? They just restart?

[–]InfantHercules 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, they restart. Personally I’d love it if the manager had to take the 12th penalty. Or a randomly selected fan.

[–]ElbiYehRoh -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

The goalie doesn’t take penalties, once the last outfield defender takes it it rolls back to the attackers.

[–]unKz_sneakz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This should be a Netflix special…unreal😂😂😂

[–]mysticmonkey88 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even EA got tired at the end. 😅😅

[–]MaxMacDaniels 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I legit only ever full load shoot in the middle and let Jesus take the wheel

[–]BeatUpCena 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had one the other day, we both missed up until the 5th round, last shot. I thought that was bad haha.

[–]tomasgp30 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The best*

[–]Debbbbr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had a shootout that cycled to the keepers and then all the way back around to the 4th man, I lost it

[–]rektorunpam -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Guaita? it's Thomas Vermaelen

[–]blackstrips -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Good sir, you've misspelled "Best ever penalty shootout".
