I agree in part. Skilled players can score a fair percentage of FKs from close range. But what bothers me is the incredibly steep dropoff in sucessful freekicks as distance increases.I like the new free kicks, skilled players can score a high percentage of their free kicks.
You also need a taker with good fk accuracy and curling but anyone with fk accuracy over 75 can score a few.
Online on pes5 LOADS of people could score free kicks and it was annoying that you could lose 1-0 to a flukey free kick goal when you dominated the rest of the match.
On pes6 not many people can so its a real art to do it, which is good. If you don't score enough free kicks, get practicing them.
