How do you speed dribble?

Title. I either end up holding RT and getting tackled, or if I don't, my players move at half speed. I see some beautiful dribbling on here. What button combos do you use? Thanks.

    I certainly use LT, but when the heck should I use it when dribbling at speed? :#

    Letting go of RT and slightly changing direction gives you much better control in tight spaces, example:

    Also try to let go of RT and tap LB no touch dribble speed boost, takes a bit of getting used to to time it right

    Thanks @AlexSolm That's a thing of beauty.

    I don't know what it is; I'm just really struggling this week. I was playing last week in Div 4 (won it) then barely losing any games in Div. 3, but I can't seem to string anything together in these qualifiers. I win one or 2, then get beat in a game where I just can't score!

    I give up. This is the kind of crap that keeps happening every 2 or 3 games:

    How can I not score on a play like this? This type of stuff seems to happen 2-3 times a game when I lose.

    once i lost to a guy (2-1) who had only 5 to 7 shots on target, while i had like 20+ shots on target.. i sent him a msg saying "FIFA loves you this match". he replied "you should work on your finishing".

    and that's what i did.. i worked on having a better finishing and i've been scoring goals way better than before.

    What did you work on? I'll try anything. I think I'm struggling with what shots to use in what situations, but I'm not completely sure (or I'd be playing better!)

    i make sure it's a clear shot and usually just draw back a little if it's not clear. and i've learned to use the driven finesse shots when i'm close to the post. also, finesse shots on the edge of the box.

    i stay away as much as possible from the clutter that happens in the box, because everything is usually in ur way when you wanna shoot.

    Edit: for example in ur clip, the first shot with bergkamp, you should've move the player a bit to the right to the ball is on his right foot, and then just finish it with driven finesse shot.

    When you say draw back, do you use LT+RT, or something else there? Thanks.

    still don't know how to use LT+RT properly, but no, i don't use that. I usually fake-turn, scoop-turn, or pass/heel pass to someone behind for a proper shot.

    maybe you didn't see my edit in previous post..

    for example in ur clip:

    1st shot with bergkamp, you should've move the player a bit to the right to the ball is on his right foot, and then just finish it with driven finesse shot.

    2nd shot, if you scoop-turn and shot with the other foot, you're having a better chance to score..
    3rd attempt when bergkamp received the ball, you should've passed it to the player on his left instead of taking a shot.

    I use LB to change directions at speed and LT if there is no way through

    I saw your ADP goals in the Legends thread; they are a thing of beauty! Were you using LB to make those quick changes of direction?

    Coming off the ball roll it can help massively with the pace boost. But with players like ADP and Best you can often get those bursts of pace and change of direction simply by holding the sprint button and using the left analogue.

    I just need to practice I guess. When I go on a run like that, my changes of direction are much slower than yours, and I often get tackled!
