I know people don't want to keep seeing people bang on about the defending this year, but there's some absolutely ridiculous things that the AI is doing at times that I feel the need to showcase the problems.
I'm not the best at defending anyway, but most goals I'm conceding can be partly attributed to the AI being thick. Here's four goals...Goal 1
; Second man contain following my controlled player (I was too late in realising AI was going to do this) then at the top of the screen my number 5 ran straight past the unmarked Rashford, all he had to do was stick near him.Goal 2
; My number 4 was in a good position to intercept the pass into the box and my number 5 decided to run past the danger and stand outside the area. Then check out the angle of Morata's header!Goal 3
; (this is the worst!) I'm controlling the central defender (No. 3). Ball over top and I'm trying to keep with Rashford in the middle as you can see with the direction icon! But the AI is forcing me to chase the ball down! This is ridiculous!Goal 4
; Couldn't switch to the defender (player switching awful again) so the AI decides to make him jog backwards instead of stopping the ball that was literally an inch away from him.http://youtu.be/RM0EpvpkCUc
The 1st goal, all I'd say is when rashford takes a touch, had you brought your gk out he would have stepped out a little further and narrowed the angle across goal down....that's all I have on that one as that's what I'd do
I do have Szczesny, but he seems much the same.
AI defence is tracking runs (I'm playing offside, not cover so they shouldn't be at all) but most through balls aren't going past the attacker so the AI defender continues moving same way and attacker has already stopped/changed direction/has ball under control. This needs eradicating from the game asap.
This was given as a penalty. Firstly it's outside the box, only thing inside the area is my players standing foot. Secondly, it's not even a ❤️❤️❤️❤️ foul!
Second clip coming as soon as I've deleted the awful music (copyright issues uploading to YouTube when I tried it a few mins ago).
Even post patch AI defenders have no teeth and AI attackers do. Its still unbalanced, slightly better post patch but still not great.
