How do I stop every single second ball being for my opponent?

In literally almost every situation, the ball ends up in my opponent's feet. That means even if I tackle 3 times, the ball goes back to the opponent. When I have the ball and the opponent tackles, the ball also just somehow ends up to the opponent. It's kind of frustrating to almost never get the second ball and it's very hard to compete in div 1 because of this. Does anyone have tips?

    Tape down L2....it sucks the ball towards you and disables opponents input.

    Its in the game, the people who play this game for a longer time all know this exists, Arcade catchup **** mechanics.

    Just uninstall and play something else.
    Better yet play the pes demo and dont look back untill ea fix/remove that bs.

    Yes Arcade Catchup Meachnics, it was always in race games(mostly by ea) and somehow they translated this into their engine, hence the weird stuff happening even when you exactly counter it and make no mistake" weird sh.t" will happen, its in the game.

    When you have these games, there isn't much you can do in all honesty. What I would say is try your hardest not to get frustrated and make mistakes but really try to up the pressure on your opponent.

    When you are against one of those guys who you just can't get the ball back off despite him only playing forward passes and constantly running head on into your players, sitting off is about the worst thing you can do IMO.

    Just had it again in second round of draft. For example, he had a corner, i headed it away, got to his player, i tackled before he shot, got to his player again. he had a shot, i got to it in time to deflect, lands to his player. He fails the 1v1 but I just don't know what to do in those situations. That game was like that the whole time.
  • Not as bad as the problem i have. Some games disconnect whenever i press slide tackle. Can work for some of the game then all of a sudden, go to perform a slide tackle.....instant disconnect.

    As said above... Sometimes you simply cannot control/maintain possession. The slightest of tackles and the ball is away. Passes take 2-3 touches to settle. Passes get away from your players.

    L2/LT dribble and turn. Assume as soon as your opponent is aside of you that the ball will be taken away. Use L2/LT to shield and turn. You don't even need to use a direction input. AI will turn you away automatically. Sometimes even turning you to the middle of the field and having a clear passing or running lane. It's borderline impossible for the defender to get thru you when you are holding L2/LT. You, at the bare minimum, get a couple seconds on the ball. Only thing that can happen is your opponent uses AI 2nd player contain then manually runs another player to the exact opposite side of the containing player. But that takes a little time too.

    Get off the run button. When receiving passes, stay off the run button. After your first touch go back on the run if you like. Don't pass while holding run either.

    I like driven passes, but if I am in a game and having a hard time maintaining possession, I go away from driven passes. I only use normal passing which forces me to make shorter, quicker passes.

    That's all I got.

    I do pack only so now and again i might have one or 2 but not a whole team

    It just happened in my last game about 5 mins ago. No silvers in the 11 but 1 on the bench

    Is there nothing wrong with your controller?

    Nope.....if it was the controller surely it would do it all the time?? Its so weird.....if im losing or drawing the match, the game wont register and i get to play it again but still get any match coins from it. However, if im winning, it does register and i get the 3 points plus match coins. I hate it, i dont want to win like that, i want to win knowing i deserved it over the full 90 mins.

    Just another example of a very poorly made game.

    Only cause I dont know if you know, but players were complaining that slide tackles cause disconnects if you have silver players - its a glitch or sumthing

    Slow it down a little, pick your passes. Take your time. Then, increase the tempo as you get more comfortable.
