Not trying to make you sound stupid or anything but are you hitting the button to stop the meter twice? Once at the top and at the bottom? The bottom arc of the meter affects the direction of the kick while the top affects the power. The only other thing I can think of it being is if you changed the sliders in your settings and set the FG accuracy to minimum or something.

Yes I hit the button twice and stop both times within the green just under the 100% marker. 

 

No FG accuracy is not set to minimum in the settings. 

 

If you look on reddit.com/r/madden and search for kicking issues, there's at least 5 other posts with my exact same issue. 

 

I know its a bug because after some more testing, if you aim ALL the way to the left, as far as you possibly can go to the left, the ball goes somewhat straight. Aiming is totally broken on PC.

I play on PC and haven't had an issue at all with the kicking accuracy. That's the main reason I asked about the sliders. MUT and Franchise has worked fine for me on the kicking side. Strange that some are having an issue and others aren't. Have you tried verifying files through origin?

Yeahp, just verified the files and still the same issues. 

 

It persists across all game modes where kicking is possible. 

 

I guess I'll just have to refund the game. Shame EA cant do PC right.

Hi,

 

had the same problem, but now I got a little wiser.

Don't try to hit the 100% power both times, because the 100% for the accuracy is

at six o' clock, not at three, like 100% power.

 

And don't feel too embarrassed......Large smile

I have the exact same issue as of April 2019 and even aiming far left still shanks right..it's close to the posts instead of into the bleachers but there's no way to make a kick.
