I can't say I'm particularly keen on the shooting system auto-aiming any shots that are taken "outside the posts", so to speak.
I used to score bucketloads by striking the ball and curling it just inside the post. As it is now, there's no visible way of hitting a nice, hard, quick low shot. None that I can see, anyhow.
In fact, one game later and I'm sad to say I'm not fond of it. I've just discovered that I can lure the goalkeeper out and tap shoot, and the shot will auto centre into the middle of the goal. Instant scoring. For me, that lacks some of the satisfaction the game had (I was last playing with 3.14 Beta 5), where although I could easily score 20 goals a game against average opposition, I had to work for it by firing my shots in right. Every goal was satisfying, and I thought nothing of belting 250 a season just because I could. It was fun!
I think the best system was there - if I wanted an auto shot I could nudge the ball in front of me with a tap of the bass button, and then hold shoot for a first time auto shot. That meant I'd need to time my nudge, again using skill.
I can't say however how this would affect Sensational Soccer...
