I've not played ut yet but head to head and its the best FIFA for years. People struggling with defending its because you've had your hand held for years. Passing is great, where as other FIFA's passing would go all over and it would be a game of who could counter off a passing mistake. The better player will win most games which is surly a good thing

    Its the best one they made so far until they of course patch due to pressure from the "i cant defend i need help from ai" crowd.

    Remember it being good this time last year too, then the patches started raining down and then we had FIFA 17...

    Dont see any issue with defending tbf

    Only thing i dont like about the game is the fouling. Get taken out from behind an ref does nothing

    Defenders can be slow reacting but its better than 17 . GKs trash any aspect of competive play however.

    That is just wrong and statements like that always make me laugh.

    Yes I really like this Fifa, but acting like there aren't any issues with defending and especially defenders' reactions is just ridiculous.

    I think it consists of two camps.

    Those who liked FIFA 17 defending and those who didn't.


    If you liked FIFA 17 defending and aren't willing to adapt then you might not like this. If you wanted a more interactive defending experience then you'll likely love this.

    disagree. most aspects of the defending are good, but some things are just plain bad, regardless of whether you wanted more manual defending or not.

    only issue with them is the through balls and how they don't react to them

    that's about it

    But there is no denying that there are atleast some issues. I don't get the whole black and white thing. Fifa 17 wasn't all bad and 18 isn't all good.

    if you offered me the choice between fifa 17 and fifa 18 even in it's current state, i'd probably still edge it to fifa 18, but with a few tweaks it could be easily the best fifa without any debate.

    Yeah I agree with this. I think it just needs tweaking slightly. It almost feels like the attacker gets the advantage even if you are covering the runs. I'm not saying I want AI defending to the scale it was last year, but your defenders sometimes feel like they are running in treacle when a through ball is played.

    well im playing zoomed out this fifa and if they try the through ball i'm switching to the defender early and L2 R2 ing my player infront of the ball. Defending hasn't been harder this year than any other so far for me but i guess i've always tried defending the attacker myself rather than using cpu. And im switching to attacking at the start of the game, i've seen many player sit deep this fifa and for me that doesn't work

    Good thing about this fifa is sitting deep doesn’t work so well
    I personally love the defending as some stated above they a bit slow to respond fix that then the game is good

    This gameplay combined with EAs servers makes it unplayeble at times

    People on PC who've had the patch say it's still the same just a bit smoother. If that's the case, it'll be fine but I do agree that the patches in the past made the game worse.

    I know exactly what you are talking about, its like they switch off for a second even when you have control of them

    I like the changes mostly. I just think the reaction time of defenders needs to be upped, goalkeepers need a serious look at and player switching needs to be more fluid and precise.

    I'm holding off judging the game compared to 17 till I've played a couple of WLs. The manual defending is fine when the servers are good, but I can imagine if there's input lag, etc. that it can make the game unplayable.

  • Well either this FIFA is awful or I am just terrible at the game.

    Seriously though, the switching and reactions of defenders needs fixing. When people are zigzagging through you it's annoying. I can tell it will be great when I learn the mechanics though.
