    Need to do Smalling and Flashback Costa when I get home later. Still debating whether to submit for Adama though

    Some stats look great and I know I’ll kick myself if I didn’t do him. I’ve got loads of prem and Spanish players as well to link with him

    Skills got brought up in here yesterday.

    Skillmoves this year aren't needed that much to get past the AI, because the AI itself is pretty dead and often stands still. And if your opponent is having a player selected you can usually turn him with dribbling and quick turning (but obviously with skillmoves too). However skillmoves are absolutely vital to create space and angles.

    That's why you see people doing "random" ball rolls and drag backs. If the players is good then these ball rolls are hardly random. They prevent the opponent from tackling, instead he will back off, because he doesn't know what you are going to do. This is resulting in you having more time and space. They also create better passing angles.

    This is just a quick example of me creating a bit more space and in the case of the final fake shot a much better shooting angle

    Same game I also scored this. Not too much sprinting unless it really helps you, a lot of turning, don't be afraid to turn and pass backwards, in the end another quick fake shot to get away from the defender and create the angle for the near post shot

    And one from this WL. As you can see I stood still with Neymar for a fraction of a second before turning and shooting. This is another great teachnique, because it will make the defender overcommit like no tomorrow. I don't know why, but players standing still even for 2 frames makes people want to dive into tackles :D However it can't be used if the defender is right on you, because then he will just take the ball away.

    Also LB and RB are vital this year otherwise your attacking AI is simply standing still way too often. You need to use them and you need to use them a lot.

    Thanks @Orison

    I was doing the turning and just retaining possession vs skilling.

    Also, have Trent and Robertson I was using LB and RB to trigger them more than I ver have before.

    All great pointers. Thanks again man!!!

    Mc. geady spins and scoop turns are very good this year imo especially with Neymar, bought Neymar to use for the first time today and he is disgustingly good even on 6 chem. I actually prefer him at striker to Toty Messi he is that good, his ability to skill and dribble is next level and his finishing seems broken.

    I also love spamming the ball roll sombrero, doesn't always work but it is amazing when it does and then you go straight into a volley after flicking the ball over someone's head.

    nice @Orison ! Already using this a lot. Love fake shots as well
    my main issue this year is defending against good opponents. I struggle with back passes on my box and I have issues covering empty spaces

    How do you do that move with the flick up? How many stars required?

    For that animation 5* I think. It's just a ball roll and then clicking in the right stick.

    Right, I’ve debated about this for days now...keep my untradeables that I’ve got left, not many seeing as I’ve done Smalling and Diego Costa and sell the 60k worth of players I bought for Adama and have 200k to play with?
    Or do I pump them in to Suarez to go with Costa?
    Or finally just end up doing Adama anyway?

    sell the players, and don't do any other sbcs out of those. I have played against Adama he is very good at sweats across the box but that is about it his shot isn't bad tbf, but 2* WF and a lack of quick turning ability means he is abit one dimensional, run down the wing in a straight line and tramp across is all I see from him.

    I wish there was a loan I could have done to try him out

    I don't even bother doing that sbc since my shocking pack luck this year. At least, i'm selling lot of silver and bronze lm/rm, lw/rw, rb and lb changed to rwb and lwb for mad prices. Just sold a silver argentinian rm for 8k lol.

    Glad to be helpful! Best seller today is Botta changed from rm to rw: his price is a constant rollercoaster and i'm buying him when he's 2k or less and selling at 7.5/8.5k. Easy coins with him.

    First game since the patch just ended 6-6... at least 8 of those goals were utter BS, only saves either of our keepers made typically led to a goal. Even managed to take the lead on 90 mins only to concede straight from KO - me and oppo shared messages afterwards laughing at how bad it was.

    Put RDR2 on instead :joy:

    Totally agree, I was just getting used to the game and then this......

    Do they even game test their patches?? Defending is awful, player switching is even worse...

    I play on balance 5 width 4 depth and my fullbacks are always out of position, I'm continually countered down the flanks....this patch will force everyone to play Drop back 2 depth!!

    EA seriously need to remove this from their game, it's there and it's obvious....had a game last night that I won 4-2 but the game was so blatantly trying to give this guys team a goal you knew when you were going to concede, no matter what I did apart from gettin gud, I was powerless to stop it....defenders not passing the ball where you aim but right to the attacker, scrambles in the box followed by me trying to press B to clear the ball for it to only drop to a player on the edge to score a weak foot top bins banger....

    I've just opened my G2 and D4 R1 rewards, Rebic and Leiva as my best picks, took untradeable paxks from DR and between them packs and the ones from wl i've not even had a ❤️❤️❤️❤️*ng board. Embarassing. Hope you'll have better luck than me.

    It’s gone back to Ultimate counter and spam skills team. The exit speed of skills is ridiculous. Shootings off balance is ridiculous, had some fella score with Rashford last night who was basically on the floor after being shoulder barged, hit the post and ended up going in.

    Apparently first time shooting is op again: yesterday night i've scored a few from outside the box and all of them went straight into the top corner.

    Yep, that and green timed finishing, which is back in a big way.....needed though to stop people playing Drop back 1 depth...but I feel that EA never get it right when trying to balance the game they never find the middle ground.
