Will slide tackles ever be nerfed?

I'm getting sick of playing people online who only ever slide tackle, and it's impossible to play against. Every time I stop to take a touch, I get slid from behind by an apparently perfect tackle that takes out and often injures my player, while my opponent starts a counter attack.

Every opponent I face always seems to play the same high pressure slide tackle game, and I can't stop it. Always getting the ball, no matter where they slide in from. Has anyone else had this problem, or is there any way to stop it, baring using a team full of 90+ dribbling players?

    I've learnt that after 10 mins or so you know they are going to throw themselves to the floor. Quick passes and 9/10 they will be down to 10 men. I had some guy down to 8 men the other night. Safe to say he rage quit after the 4th went in.

    just press L1 (stop) or L2 just before you receive the tackle... 1:1 chance of a card for the tackler.

    I play a possession game though, so I take a lot of touches and hold the ball for a while. My team isn't set up for quick passing, and I just lose the ball easily.

    Huh, never thought of that, thanks. My striker is pretty strong, so it should work better.

    Same problem as me then as I like to play the slow game too. I end up giving the ball away with a poor pass or the game decides to pass it in the opposite direction I aimed at.

    I like to try bait tackles by doing a 180 turn just outside the box. If the connect without touching the ball, a good 60% of the time it ends up being a red card & the FK is a really good chance to score.

    I'm still shocked that this year they introduced the idea of double tapping the slide tackle button to get up off the ground even faster - as if defending wasn't already made easy enough to anyone new to the game.

    It's always 50/50 for me on first time scoop turns/fake shots. Either I pull it off perfectly or the game doesn't recognize the fake shot and my player just has a weak shot at goal.

    It's better than FIFA 13 contain, but I get what you mean.
