Before you even control the ball, the other guys team already closed down every passing opportunity you had... what the **** does one do?

    try to hold a deeper line and defend with your Mids behind the ball. But just as you get that right, they'll smash a through ball past 6 of your players and score, so I'm stumped aswell :smiley:

    Keep the ball, try to force the ball to other side of the court and then switch the ball to the other side. There should be very much room to go forward and create chances.

    Or, you can fight fire with fire, go custom settings and put pressure and aggression to 100. It is not pretty but that is an option.

    Try to take advantage of their impatience in regaining possession, maintain it as well as you can and exploit the gaps in their midfield and defence.

    Ultra attack/possession has been working great for me post patch. Won div 1 twice in a row with only one loss. Fight fire with fire

    What i honestly find to be effective, is to just go ultra defensive, focus on not conceding and trust that Graziano Pelle will do his job as a targetman... Won MANY of those 1-0... Seems fair enough

    Of course it's not: playing against people who press like Hell all over the pitch for 90' is not fun at all.

    One must either find a way to "escape" that pressure (by passing/switching sides often) or just decide to bait the opponent into pressing even more and coming even closer to the danger area, so he would leave gaps at the back that can be then exploited with a counter (or with a long pass to a target man).
    The first way is fun but risky, the other way is boring but it usually yields better results.

    i think we both will a agree first way is about skills and the second is about luck

    Yeah: the more risky the move, the more skilled one must be do it properly of course.

    Actively escaping the pressure by passing the ball around (or switching sides, because with that kind of pressure there's always a man of yours free on the other flank) is difficult so it requires more skill (and way more self confidence) than just parking the bus and hoping for a counter...

    But again, they are two legit ways to counter the same exploit.

    Make sure you use something like coop camera that way you can always see the open man. Plenty of guides that explain how to beat it though.

    Yeah, using a Pelle type of striker is sooooo easy right? That's why it's the most overused player, unlike Remy who takes SKILL to use.

    Why on earth would you use Pelle?? I can't think of a single reason to.

    Patience is key for me. Usually the super high pressure players send two defenders to the ball, sometimes three. There will be open players. A lot of times one simple pass back creates a huge amount of space going forward.

    Not questioning the players being used here, I was talking about the play styles.
    I don't play FIFA 16 online anymore but I used to struggle a lot against high pressure in FIFA 14 and I've been faced with the same options: play my way out of trouble or just wait for the opponent to commit too much and hit on the counter. I've played both ways (some opponents were just too aggressive to safely pass the ball around), but I must say I prefer the former.
    I've lost countless matches because of my stubborn refusal to stop passing the ball around and switching flanks (as I said, I also resorted to parking the bus and countering but it just happened once in a while), so I know it's more difficult. But it's also more rewarding, trust me.

    I play a hyper high pressure guy maybe 3 out of 10 games, I don't park the bus I play defensive and then ultra defensive when I'm 1-0 up. Give them a lot of time on the ball and not leave gaps. All they can do is take long shots and my keeper saves 96/100. The other 7 games I play possession football and abuse 5* skillers... It is only WHEN the annoying pressure people come out that I play dirty. The point is that what good is high pressure when I DONT want to keep the ball? His biggest strength becomes useless and he can't rely on it.

    What **** keeper is that?? Every keeper I ever use lets in about 40% of long shots! :angry:

    I also kinda cut the angle and put them on their weak foot etc, my midfielders are usually constantly harassing their players(matuidi, marchisio)... Ofc if I leave too much space it could be different
