This is horrendous from last night I’ve went from 2100 (roughly were I’ve been for weeks)skill points to 1500 lol my players can’t pass ,tackle ,shoot
High press constant pressure is back
Whatever that patch has done manual tackling has completely changed this is driving me nuts surely I havnt gotten 600 skill points worse in a day ffs
I’m looking fairly stupid with a 7 mil coin team and getting absolutely battered by everyone lol

I think it may be time for a break to refresh

    Feels like the first patch again minus the side footed shooting. Manolas back to scoring overhead kicks :joy:

    All of the things you are struggling with are the same for your opponents. You need to adapt to the new (and worse) gameplay mechanics. Bear in mind that they will probably patch it again before Christmas though and you'll be back to square one!

    I think this is an alternate reality where we are guinea pigs for some horrible plot. Like how much abuse can a human take before ...

    Seriously bro, I avoid the standing tackle button unless I’m in or around the box last ditch. Pressing circle is like giving them a penalty, guaranteed open chance 9/10. Running into players far more effective :joy:

    Dropped down two divisions last night. Glad I'm not the only one that's had this happen.

    seems like the game is broken the last 2 patches really messed it up. I thought the patch before this one was to reward manual tackling, well it actually punishes anyone who tries to tackle manually... Even simple passes are intercepted .

    It aint no fun anymore, sold all my players... not even going to play this current WL.. 5 freaking patches all in 6 weeks

    I’m so used to using it though that’s the main problem kind of set I’m my ways if anything they should have improved manual tackling not decreased it ffs

    Terrible for me too, I have a lot of pace in my team but no one can run! Passes go astray all the time, dribbling is terrible and tackling is shocking, players just don’t respond to any controls!!

    Weekend League is going to be horrible so may only play a few games as can’t enjoy it at the moment!!

    I may play a few games of squad battles I think trying to get the ball from the ai will be more relaxing than this lol

    You’ll find the “better players” on this game only making 5/6 tackles. Just not worth the risk. I get what you’re saying though

    Wrong. Your opponent can 100% have different game play.

    What I meant is they are playing with the same code, same mechanics etc. Clearly their connection can be better and their experience will be better but ultimately everyone is playing the same version of the game.

    Whenever i hit a streak of 3-4 losses i remind my self.

    1. Let go of the sprint button
    2. Pass the ball faster. Pass back if needed.
    3. Try no to control defenders, and if i have to, dont manually tackle unless in the box to stop a shot.

    If i go 7-8 games unbeated i pretty much lose concentration and start playing like a tard. Just forcing plays upfront and constantly holding spring button and tackling with my palyers. This is a very good way to lose games.

    I am also doing that recently... There is no clean tackle in the box... Unless it is opponent, who can do sliding tackle without any foul

    The reason why SB is better... even if you concede 3time tackled goal... you can skip it and don't have to watch the buy DAB...

    How did you go from 2100+ to 1500 damn.

    1500 is where the below average players are. 1600+ is good players.

    Connection maybe having problems? Shouldn't be dropping from so good to that. Crazy stuff
