As title, help please.

I'm getting pretty bored of playing a bunch of crabs who you apparently can't tackle when walking sideways.

    If you play someone that uses it effectively, it's very hard to stop tbh

    Just use Lt and defend like a player would in real life... The only reason it's so effective is because people defend like missiles sprinting and barging etc.

    This....if the majority of the community wasn't slide tackle spamming little scrubs, we wouldn't have to deal with a bunch if crap walkers.

    I agree. It not only looks ridiculous, it's also ludicrously unrealistic. Name one time, just one time, in all the hundreds of millions of football games ever played anything even remotely resembling this nonsense has ever occured?

    It's a farce.

    nope. dribbling/skills gets nerfed every year. people want to remove everything that can make one player better than the other. defending is already too easy.

    you have 9 outfield players controlled by ai, they wont make human mistakes. there is only so far passing can get you against good opponents.

    It is pretty ridiculous and unrealistic, but you need something to counter how the stupidly aggressive, B spamming and slide spamming works. High pressure and aggressive play style is the most effective it's ever been, it's even worse if you're playing Weekend League and you get delay.

    Yeah you can tell when they're real p.o.s. when before you even get near the halfway line and they are shooting up and spamming slide tackles with their back line.

    Does LT+RT dribbling actually work? Every time I use it the defenders just smash through me like a steam train

    I've honestly never played anybody like that. Sounds like the dream opponent! In fact, I don't face many opponents who use slide tackle excessively, mores the pity. I see the high aggression defence often enough, but not sliders. Am I in the minority here? If so, I wonder what I can do to attract them!

    The animation is dumb but some sort of precision dribbling is needed

    Never get sliders wish i did because normally if anyone slides it goes nowhere near me

    Slide tackles are ridiculous in this game! I very rarely find myself facing the opponents goal on the way to it because of homing sliding tackles. I almost have to backheel my way there.

    I like a good sliding tackle in real football, but they are few and far between now due to the risk of it being judged dangerous. Virtually every tackle in fifa would be deemed dangerous in a real game.

    Love a good slide tackle plus much better than standing tackle as those little dribble gits can't get the ball back when they are on their arse.

    Patience is the key if you try to run to them then it will leave gaps in behind

    Some of your points make sense.

    But it just looks stupid and unrealistic
