I'm playing a virtual pro (offline and online carreer) as a goalkeeper in Fifa 14 and I found it quiet difficult to get a good rating, when your own team is very good. The rating keeps dropping (after the first contact to the ball, but not always?!) and when your team is very good in defending you won't get any contact with the ball. So you have no chance in getting a good rating at the end of the match. It's okay for onlinegames, but I need to get an average of 7,0 for my offline carreer and it's nearly impossible to get more then 5,5 when you are just watching your teammates and giving orders.

So my question is if there is anything I'm missing in beeing a good goalkeeper to get a decent rating (besides watching your goal)? Maybe it's just a bug that the rating keeps decreasing so fast?

PS: I'm playing on the PC if this is important.

Not really as in getting a 7.0. If you really want a good rating, just let your team give them a shot on goal. Having a save will improve your rating very fast. Also let them pass the ball more back to you. So you have more passes. Just also stay in position(not sure if there is a red circle on fifa 14 as well as a goalkeeper) Get out of the goal during a corner to save the ball.

So I need to manipulate the game or my team to play less aggressive, to get a better rating? In my opinion that can't be the right way. I hope that's not the final solution :( Thanks anyway mate –  Streuner Oct 30 '13 at 8:08
    
@Streuner No it just means, get more involved in their game. Eventually I think you will have to make some saves in a match so this doesn't apply on every match, but making saves is just the easiest way or else just try to get the ball more often. –  Loko Oct 30 '13 at 8:10
    
I understand what you mean, but it can't be a good solution for this kind of problem. If my team is really good you will be forced to make bad passes or something so that they can get thorugh to take a shot. I played some (offline) matches and won't every game with 5 or more goals for my team and the opponent didn't get a shot in general. To leave such a match with a GK-rating of 4.8-5.5 is just frustrating and making the NPCs passing back isn't really nice for the gameplay itself I think. Nevertheless this is a valid solution/answer ;) –  Streuner Oct 30 '13 at 8:16

@Streuner Yeah well sorry to say but fifa kind of ruined it at some parts. –  Loko Oct 30 '13 at 8:18

@Streuner Like in real life, Neuer(Goalkeeper of Bayern Munich and Germany national team) never has to do anything. Probably always gets an average rating. –  Loko Dec 2 '13 at 8:59
