Analog sprint on by default

Think most people know this already but EA turned the analog sprint on as default. I still got beaten by strikers and couldn’t figure out why after all the pace is nerved comments. Turned the analog sprint off and now I can indeed use the likes of David Luiz and Pique without much problem (just like IRL where they can catch strikers who are running with the ball, which is a tad slower than with the ball). So just a FYI in case some people didn’t know yet.

    Yes I felt the difference with my centre backs. I do manual defending where I always switch to the closest defender to the ball so then it’s a must to have it off IMO. That’s probably the worst way to defend by the way but I enjoy that the most. Want to be in control of the game and enjoy it rather than watch the AI do the work for me.

    So do I, I can never trust leaving defending to the AI, probably not why I’m a pro!!

    what about at the other end of the pitch whilst attacking tho?

    Haha same. I’m happy in division 5. So far matchmaking is on point too. Every game is even. I’m 41-13-31 right now. Obviously with manual defening every mistake gets punished but that’s alright :). I feel like in Fifa 19 you can do manual defending because of the slightly overpowered tackling, which is a very welcome change.

    I have Lemar Depay and Lucas POTM upfront and I feel they are faster now (especially Lemar). Lucas was already fast to begin with. Could be that I didn’t press RT far enough so just try it to see if it fits your playing style. For me the first metres my players are definitely faster! :smile:

    Hmmm. Interesting. Gonna turn that bad boy off and see whether those 60 pace defenders stop catching me.

    Yes will definitely get better. Plus your 60 pace defenders might catch their strikers a little bit better now ;). Seriously having it on is a con in my book. With it off I can finally run away with my Lemar in open space. Before they would always catch up in a second.
