Has tackling ever been so pointless?

I’d say I currently win about 20% of my tackles in current gameplay.

    I make the tackles but the ball falls back to them right away

    Exactly. Or my center back with infinitely more strength is flung to the ground after making a challenge. But Mertens/Ben Yedder stand tall and walk through to goal! :)

    Had this happen to both HL Varane and 94 Ramos today. Underwhelming to have a bronze striker do this. Code is just a little messed

    Yep.

    No matter how good you are at defending the ball will just bounce back to the other team, and if you do get lucky and retain the ball after a tackle then half the time your CB will just fall over or do something equally stupid.

    Guess it’s comforting to know that I’m not alone here, although it’s a shame it’s happening at all.

    Still don’t understand what has caused it to be this bad though.

    Its a very realistic tackling system. In real life world class centre backs usually either shoulder barge their opponents (foul and yellow), obstruct their opponents by body checking them (foul and yellow) or do a wild two footed challenge from in front (red) or behind (red). The game is incredibly realistic 🙄🙄🙄.

    The games totally broken on both defense and tackling as a whole. Little weak ❤️❤️❤️❤️ are out jumping, out tackling and out muscling cb's winning every 50-50. Players are just using strikers at CM and CDM and they are preforming better than actual CDM's tracking runs even though they have bad workrates, winning tackles cleaning with like 30 stand tackle

    It's weird how the ai in squad battles makes a tackle and most of the times your player loses balance, you lose control of that player for seconds making it difficult to react and recover the ball, and the ball either, will stick to the ai player or bounce away from any of your players. In other words, tackles work fine for the ai.

    But, how come the same is not reproduced at the same level for our players.

    Of all the promises for fifa 20, this is the biggest fail imo. The meta is just as much to let the computer do the tackling while you run around with your CMDs as it was last year.

    And with playing deep and narrow it makes it even easier. It suggests to me that EA really don't know how to code it any better since they clearly said at the start this was something they wanted to improve.

    I've played games where Kent or James have gone without losing possession for almost 3 tackles, even sliding tackles don't work at times. My players tackles, wins the ball but trips over the fallen player. Hilarious

    I'd be happy if they just made it so a 5ft petite player doesn't walk into the back of a 6ft big bodied player shielding the ball and somehow comes away with the ball.

    This too. When I win the ball facing my own goal I just know the attacker will morph through my defender and nick the ball away.

    But don’t forget this was a new and ‘improved’ tackling system especially demonstrated and advertised to make you buy the game with confidence. Trading standards would have a field day if anyone with the right know how filed a case.

    they had an animation in the beta when you tackle a player your player would (don't know how to explain it exactly) but he'd sort of glide/slide with the ball stuck to his foot... it was amazing....

    i didn't see anyone complain about it on the beta forums, but they removed that animation completely from the game when it came out

    Yeah I remember it, it was very solid and we all enjoyed it, that’s why it got removed, any area of joy gets withdrawn from Gameplay through to Icon SBCs

    I find defenders like Prime Blanc and my base Rio win 80% of tackles TBH, with crappy defenders its harder but with top end tacklers or players with op animations or massive height it is not that hard to tackle properly, not perfect by any means but the majority of the time I have no problem tackling. Hardest thing is stopping cut back goals with the AI standing in the 6 yard box like mongloids.

    Well, you could do what my opponents usually do against me. As soon as the ball gets to my striker, they control their CB and then go on to spam the tackle button at my striker's back and a foul is never called lol

    Tackling is pointless. Always manually tackle, opponents AI defend. Yet I'm always the one losing out.

    Can tackle a striker, he'll still have ball, tackle him again, my player is the one stumbling. It's very sad how poor this game is coded.

    Exactly what I find is happening.

    It's clearly an engine thing. The frostbite enginte sucks so much, even the developers can't fix it. Hopefully we get a new engine next gen, of they continue with this frostbite engine, we'll have the same BS with upgraded graphics
