I KNOW people here are repeating the usual "git gud" answers, urging people to "learn manual defending", but how to "manual defending" if the game is totally biased towards offense?
I am for manual defending, and I am not for sucessive patches, but this is something EA needs to know: Defending is broken.
These are the main issues (ON PC):
Input delay when defending. You stop flicking LS and defender still moves. Press LT doesn't help. In FIFA 17, press LT player stops into jockeying. This is delayed on DEMO.
Player switching broken. Switching with RS is unreliable.
Manual interceptions are broken. Passes go through defenders' legs.
And finally... manual tackling is broken.
TLDR: They should patch asap or we will see Football turning into Basketball all year long.
