Respect to everybody that have mastered the game, I salute you!

Still there are unsolved mysteries I can't explain myself, maybe somebody will enlighten me, will you?

1. How do you manage to press with 2 to 3 players constantly and still don't leave gaps anyware else?

2. How come there are always enough bodies in defense, but when you start a counter, you have more numbers as well?

3. That ball knock on thing. When I press the sprint button my players knock the ball way ahead of them and accelerate, so that I often lose the ball. You guys just knock the ball a tiny little bit in front of you, soon to be catched up and never ever lose the ball

4. Talking of sprinting, how do you manage to sprint around my players like if they were slalom poles? How is that possible?

If haters want to write that I am a Noob, go on be my guest. I have stopped caring if I lose or not, I mainly lose anyhow. I'd just like to know the secrets behind all these OP moves that kill me each and every game.

    1. There are always gaps, they are just specialising in rushing you so you don't look for them - shield the ball a bit and pass backwards if you need to.
    2. How come there are always enough bodies in defense, but when you start a counter, you have more numbers as well?

    2. Instructions (full backs stay back, low aggression etc) and the sort of players you have in midfield (Sanches, Kante, Diarra) help
    3. That ball knock on thing. When I press the sprint button my players knock the ball way ahead of them and accelerate, so that I often lose the ball. You guys just knock the ball a tiny little bit in front of you, soon to be catched up and never ever lose the ball

    3. double tap the direction you are going in (IMO like all skill moves it is not as precise as in previous years)
    4. Talking of sprinting, how do you manage to sprint around my players like if they were slalom poles? How is that possible?

    4. don't hold sprint when you change direction and use the face up dribble - though input lag is your enemy here so it isn't great all the time.

    Noob.

    In fairness, 1 and 2 come with custom tactics - Try upping your pressure and aggression. Number 3 is a question of timing when to knock it ahead of you. Number 4... Well number 4 is probably just you not being very good at defending. Try jockeying with secondary pressure whilst you cut the passing lanes.

    .

    1. I dont always press but pressing hard then switching it up with some marking of obvious passes to make your opponent flustered seems very effective. Also fouling the opponent is a great way to break up play if your pressing is broken down but dont use slide tackles.

    2. Idk about this. I play fairly possession based and like being camped in the opponents half. Counters i get are from winning the ball high up the pitch quickly after i lose the ball via an erroneuos pass

    3. Idk could be not using analog sprinting. Or the dribble fake trick (but its not too effective).

    4. Again not my playstyle. My main use of dribbling is when Costa has a defender behind him to use the first touch left or right tosend the opponent the wrong way. I usually delay the analog stick press until the last second or hold it the second before in the opposite direction to throw them off.

    Is it lagging in game showing those weird colors or is it my connection watching twitch?


    Also are you holding jockey a lot of times you are just smacking into the other players instead of making a tackle animation?

    The quality is mediocre but to me its not lagging at all and no weird colors other than the pitch pattern

    Not even when you rewatch it on twitch? Must be my connection then.
