    Why should we even bother selecting Penalty Takers???

    For the umpteenth time today, my team was involved in a penalty shootout.
    This time it mattered, since it was the Cup Final, not a friendly.
    Extra Time finishes.....I go and select my Strikers and AMs and Mids as the penalty takers.
    Wait for the penalties to start.....and to my suprise (not really suprised actually).....only 3 of the 5 selected take the pens.
    2 random other players take the pens...1 misses the final penalty...which if scored, would hand me the Cup.
    And I go on to lose on penalties in Sudden Death.

    Tell me this Nordeus, cant you even design and implement a feature as simple as using the 5 players selected and not random blokes?
    This has been reported in the forum a long time back, yet as usual, no one cares to fix it.
    Instead we get a new transfer market which no one likes.
    We get weekly competitions (something actually good!!)
    Why not simply fix the insane bugs in the game?
    Thanks for robbing me of the Cup!!

    You might try nominating penalty takers who are actually on the pitch...

    All 5 nominated players were on the pitch after 120 mins.
    The 2 players subbed on didn't take the penalties in order.

    EDIT: Screenshots showing Benitez and Garcia subbed ON...till the penalties start.

    The other two could not handle the pressure and they just disappeared. LOL

    Post your complaint in the bugs section of the forum and also send a complaint via in-game support or that on Nordeus website. There have been other similar problems reported here on the forum in the past such as players not taking free-kicks or corners in the order they were assigned.

    For me, the penalty shoot-out thing itself is fake fake - all players shoot to the same side, like a sort of replay of the same thing.

    My team just played a penalty-shoot out. I had an 3 penalty takers set in priority before the match started; consider them as A, B and C. Player B was substituted during the match. I added more players during the 30s penalty shooter selection thing. Player A took the first penalty, player C took the second and the penalty takers that followed did not went according to the list at all. So, clearly there is something wrong with the penalty shooter selection itself.

    @Tactician

    Exactly what my observation was.
    The 2 players subbed on in my case did not take the penalty as well.
    When I contacted support, they were SUPRISED there was such an issue
    They claim they have never heard of this before. <not enough emoticons here to express how much I laughed at this one>
