People constantly running the wing

What to do about it? Full backs will not track the run, it's all ive faced before. teams with 1 depth, sitting back and just hugging the touchline with rapid wingers to get the ball towards the box. Don't think i can handle this 30 times a weekend. Really can't cope defending with this kind of play.

    Those types of players are called scrubs.
    And it doesn't help that all of the youtubers promote playing in that toxic way.

    i dont even get how it is fun, i know rewards are at stake but it makes me not even want to play. Losing is fine, im no fantastic player but this is just boring.

    Set custom tactics to stay back while attacking and get fast/strong fullbacks. Maybe change the depth and width.

    So some people complaining opponents attacking from the wing and some complaining opponents using 41212 and running through the middle

    dont mind the middle, ai full backs literally dont track for you though, so miles worse.

    Just track the run manually and let them run. They have to cut in anyways since crossing isnt an option

    I do this but problem comes from when I win the tackle and the game decides to screw me and still let them keep the ball whilst my full back is out of position

    Er no thanks, I didn't buy this game to play it for myself, I'd much rather sit and watch the AI track runs for me ;)

    how can i manually track a player as well as challenging a player? so easy to do a one two on this game as the ai doesnt follow initially with the player you are not using.

    Ever notice how their AI track your players but the AI doesn't track their players?

    Once you positioned your wing back correctly, switch back to the original defender and continue to challenge...

    Hey, seriously, it’s very basic defense 101 skills to control more than one defender....

    to be honest i dont notice it tracking the runs when i make them, i am just not good enough at fifa to always expose it and i am really struggling with how to contain them when they are attempting to expose my flanks.

    Problem is this EVERY youtuber swears by "Cover Centre" then your opponent does triangle passing past your LB?RB and you fcuked cos your CDM/CM doesnt track the runner

    If you have problems defending simple 1-2 passes, you really need to learn how to defend properly

    Blame youtubers, and the sheepy nature of people.

    Kids will be kids, you can't blame them for that... but there are a lot od 30+ year olds who play fifa who are unfortunately, still children.

    I learned a long time ago to never listen to them. They can get vast amounts of people to use settings like you have just said and that helps YouTubers when they play online.

    Heading doesn't work, just stop then cutting in and allow the cross to come in.

    I wish they would just remove custom tactics all together.

    I'd rather face opponents that run down the wing than play vs someone doing unrealistic ping pong with 41212(2).

    Running down the line is really easy to defend against. Just force them to cross and block the cut inside. I wish more people did it.

    Then defend the cross. Or he heads it, who cares, they won't score.

    Unfortunatly good players don't run down the line that much, only when it's really the best option

    Ppl “ run the wings” because you muppets have zero width auto defend stay back and it’s impossible to go in the center

    Faster fullbacks won't hurt,, use jockey to block crosses/cutting in

    Just move far enough into the wing with your defender? a lot of people don't move far enough to be in front of the guy running.
