Handball was a huge issue in Fifa 15. And that's carried over to Fifa 16.
I contacted EA Support earlier today about the handball in Career Mode. Cause it was funny how my player swatted the ball into the net.
Turns out there is no handball in Fifa 16 Career Mode. There isn't even an option to turn handball on or off. It just flat out doesn't exist.
The agent I had spoken to, Spencer, did some research and told me that in other modes Kick Off / FUT there is an option to turn it on or off. And that there were reports of the ball being wierd if it were on..
In Pro.. there isn't any handball either... this I can understand.. its already pretty stressful as is.. adding handball to Pro Clubs & Drop Ins would suck so much..
but people like myself who like to play career mode, like it because of the realistic tune of the mode.
Spencer told me to make a thread suggesting to add handball as an option to Career Mode AND fixing handball in Kick Off / FUT / Tournaments etc
THE MORE PEOPLE WHO COMMENT THE BETTER
EA Sports really needs to add and fix handball in Fifa 16. It's a part of football / soccer.
Handball is the biggest part of a soccer game. And i am a person who likes to take free kicks and penalties and its difficult without a handball to get these set pieces often. It would be great if this problem is fixed.
Actually you can turn on handball for career mode, I do it myself....it is annoying though as the ref seems to always give the other team free kicks and not me =(
On the main menu go to customise, then settings and then game settings. press the R2 till you get to Rules and right at the bottom is Handball settings and now you have the choice of on or on (except penalties), do this before you play your career mode.
Hi, as the person earlier said you can turn hand ball on in career mode, at least on PS4.
The option is not in career mode itself but on the main page. I can't remember the exact names of the menus because I'm at work but it is on the settings page where you change the camera and sound and stuff. If you go along the different tabs you will see 'rules' and it is on that tab. When you start your career mode you will see and hear the commentator say "that's a handball"!
Also you don't have to restart your career again.
Hope that helps
