I feel pretty stupid, I just realized last night there is a contain button for defending. I totally remember this from older fifas but I guess I forgot about it, literally have not used it in this fifa or the last until last night.

lol I just find that funny. Does anyone actually use it? I pride myself in thinking im a decent defender, not quite as good as last year but not that bad either ( just don't ask the guys in the forums tourney), and so without ever using it, have I put myself at a disadvantage?

Didn't really seem game changing or anything at all. Is there a time when you want to use it and other times you don't? Thanks guys!

    It's trash compared to last year. Which is kind of a good and bad thing.

    If you’ve been solid at defending without using it, don’t change anything

    You know when you can't move even after you do great turn he is instantly back on you ? That's the auto contain .it is absolutely disgusting that you even have that in there and all the good players abuse that. They only manually defend once you break through the back 4.

    RB is necessary at times but A is and will always be a joke.

    What's the one when you press and the player you controlling auto chases the one with the ball and predicts every turn automatically? I use different button combinations to most in here.

    If by "instantly back on you" you mean five feet away, then yes, you're correct. What you described sounds like contain from last year.

    Before I finally got the hang of manual defending this year, I tried being a contain noob. But my oh my did EA change things from 17. Holding A will make your defender mirror the attacker, but you give them acres of space and all of a sudden your player will just stop. Last year it essentially stuck your defender to the attacker like glue, which is why I said in my earlier post it's kind of a good thing that EA changed it. It was severely abused in 17.

    I'll rarely use it to try and automatically bring a defender closer to the attacker, but even then I prefer to do that myself because the function is so poor.

    If you use it too much, you'll easily get exposed by a quick one-two.

    It does have it's uses though.

    could you expand on the uses? that's kind of what I was getting it, if there is a use for it, when?

    Why would it be funny? Defense needs assistance because nobody plays manual offense. Most don’t even know how to turn manual offense on lol.

    You referring to the contain/tackle button for legacy defending? Can’t do that online with tactical defending.

    Not sure who you are talking to but yea I did say its funny in the OP, in that I hadn't ever used it and had forgotten about it entirely since playing fifa '10.

    I never play offline. It's RB button for me it just tracks the attacker automatically and runs close to him as long as you hold it

    I just mean in general people go on and on about defense needing or playing manual but won’t play manual offense so it won’t change. Go into settings and turn it all to manual.

    If you misjudge movement it can get you back on point, but it's best to use it on the wings or when you aren't staring down a Jesus, Mane one-two.

    Wow, thought I was the only one :D

    Spending about 10 years playing PES solidly from the mid-90s has ingrained those controls in my brain, no way I could get used to anything else now!
