    Left-footed for left corners and Right-footed for right corners?

    How far is this being true? (Imagine if we have both players with a corner speciality and have the same crossing %, but differ in left/right - footed.

    It doesn't matter as long the player is good enough to cross. Wingers and wide midfielders are ideal for this role, since crossing and creativity are important attributes for them.
    Duncton and motrin like this.

    A good defence is the best offense.

    Lol corner kick is just a kick not dribbling so foot not matters lol.Maybe it matters very much in real life but its a game.

    You tested this? I know you like your CK specialists.

    I'm still relying on an old guide, stating:

    Corner kicks: They are crosses from either side of the opponent’s goal. Your corner kick takers should be right footed for right corner kicks and left footed for left corner kicks and in both cases have high crossing skill. Using the correct footed player is very important, as a plain right footed player will be better crossing a right corner kick than a left footed corner specialist (unless he also has a much higher crossing skill).

    It would be great if anyone could convince me otherwise.

    I have two, a AML/ST and a DL/DC. The defender had played way more games that ths winger last season, yet the winger came first for the club with 12 assists. Both are right footed, long day since I've had a left footed attacker...

    But do they assist equally from both sides or mostly from the right?

    This game seems to favour out-swinging corners. The same applies for cross free-kicks and direct shot free-kicks, though logically a left-footed player would more likely be suitable for making a shot from the right, and a right footed-player would more likely be suitable for making a shot from the left. This is also a matter of preference.

    In real football these days, a left-footed player is usually preferred for taking corners from the right, and a right-footed player for taking corner from the left. This is to be able to do in-swinging crosses. Also, some players might find it easier to do in-swinging corners than out-swinging ones.

    The advantage of doing an out-swinging cross is that the ball curves away from the goalkeeper, making it more difficult to catch, but one disadvantage is that the ball may go out of play before curving back in.

    To answer the question briefly, there are indications in the game itself that show that footedness probably matters, but this has been said to be a myth by some users here. These indications could also be there just to fool the user. So, it is not confirmed whether footedness makes a difference in this game. Experiment yourself, and use what you think is best or what is working the best for you.

    I agree about your football analysis but don't agree about the game theory.

    As we have non official answer from nordeus devs and no member/player managed so far to prove something like this (or at least to have some clue), I consider this as just some scenario.
    The guide Duncton mentioned is very good but as in the other good guides, some things are arbitraries.
    In one season for example, I wanted to stay in the same league with a reserve team and I set my 2nd GK to kick the corners and fouls.
    He wasn't good at F-K but he had some assists from C-K.

    After all, it's a simple game , doesn't need so much analysis but I like it this way.
    The strong point is the "human" factor (like the stories of my thread about the manipulation of CH.L., you know )

    What are you talking about? Part of your reply does not make any sense to what I posted. Did you read only a part of it? There are indications in this game concerning footedness; it is up to you to find out. If you can't or you didn't, especially after playing this game so much for such a long time, then your loss. There is nothing wrong in what I posted.

    can you share some about footedness and C-K ?
