    How many goals do you score and concede normally? And how do you defend ?

    Also every game finishes at least 5-4

    Dont press X to contain at all, all you gotta do is jockey and O tackle, watch some defending videos in youtube

    And circle to tackle rarely works but you gotta take the chance

    I won division1 and gold cup in fifa13... 10/11/12 really held my own. 16/17 was so bad..!!! Didn’t play much..
    Now Fifa18 I’m in division 7, sometimes 6. But I’m enjoying playing.... I don’t have the time to play everyday/night. Plus I always play SB.

    it’s just how it goes, you need to constantly change your game play.
    EA add in new things all the time. In the earlier series you didn’t. Well IMO..

    I recommend a couple of Eastern European Youtubers - Krasi and Ovvy.

    Great guys who can teach you a lot.

    What about your tactics, formation and playing style?

    Every FIFA I struggle but then come back and get in Division 1 (currently two but I'm confident). I'm always in WL whenever I want it, but it's not very often because I have no time.

    I had the same in the beginning, but just got promoted to div 1 by winning championship in div 2 with 1 game remaining. Just play a lot, get used to all the mechanics, and buy Icons (I bought van Basten and it completely changed my entire game, he is unreal)

    Don't defend. That's the trick. Play on defensive, select your CDM and cut passing lanes and never use the tackle button.

    This year really puts the focus on understanding the concept of defending. Plus is all manual pretty much now, the AI is useless. Blocking passing lanes, covering space in behind, marking off the ball runs, anticipate and read your opponents. This year most importantly is covering and closing down the space your opponent has to play in.

    That's all well and good, but I've noticed a cheap giveaway of dispossession of the ball after a long build completely leaves you prone to a counter which is near impossible to stop at times.

    I haven't played in 10 days so might be a bit rusty, however, my defending has gone right out the window. Trying to qualify for WL and my players are just so unresponsive, defensively. Timing my tackles quite well but are taking that split second or so too late and given away so many fouls. As well, my AI controlled defenders are just leaving massive gaps or not even attempting to get the ball.

    I noticed there was an update, has that drastically changed the gameplay?
