It has absolutely ruined me this year trying to manual tackle. I always average between 17-20 tackles per game. Most times they miss completely.

I have to tackle an opponent striker 4 times in a row, only for him to get away with it.

How do u guys steal the ball from your opponents without using the tackle button.

It seems fifa defending will always be dominated by al, so i might need to start training for future instalments.

This just happened, i just put the controller down and walked away for the game to pass




I literally manual activate tots vvd with 97 interceptions and 99 standing tackle to get the ball, only to bounce back for freaking witsel of all players to score.

I mean wtf is the whole point of this game?

Another game after i made this thread

    Or is there a way to just disable tackling, because it doesnt work on this fifa.

    Works fine for me. Yes sometimes it will bounce straight back to them but it still works very well. I refuse to let the AI defend for me.

    The whole game is broken from top to bottom tbh you just have to take it for what it is now. This is the future of FIFA.

    Sometimes it's best to jockey and let your player get in the way. Like you said, tackling is very unreliable and very random.

    I’d also like to know how people;
    1) Activate homing-missile tackling?
    2) Activate mass interception/blocking?

    Can’t get either of these mechanics to work for me.

    Sometimes bounce back??
    Most of the goals i concede are cause of that,,, n lately i have been conceding 1-2/game

    Random question, while I agree on the point that the tackling is awful, do you complain when it goes in your favour? Doubt it

    I do sigh and think its unfair on my opponents
  • I honestly can't remember running through a tackle.

    I can remember every time I tackle the ball bouncing back to the opposition though.

    There’s always going to be some element of AI defending.

    If they add all these things that people keep asking for in Fifa 20, I can guarantee that there will be 20 threads within a day of release complaining about the number of goals people have conceded due to the AI not doing enough. It will be the same people posting that are complaining about AI defending right now...it’s a self fulfilling prophecy.

    Saying that, there definitely needs to be more reward for hitting a perfect tackle, it bounces in favour of the attacker way too often.

    When the tackles and rebounds all go to your opponent, I think those are the most frustrating games you will play. You add in a few misplaced passes and a crossbar or two and you know its not gonna be your day.
