This year is the first time ever I'm dabbling in FUT and I do enjoy it a lot, even though I'm fairly rubbish. I played FUT Champs for the first time this weekend after ending up in Div 4 in Rivals. I'm pretty sure I'm actually a Div 5/6 player at best because I got absolutely embarrassed in FUT Champs - 7 wins out of 23 games
I had a couple of specific questions around improvement:
1) In FUT Champs everyone presses really high up the pitch and I have serious trouble getting the ball out of my half. And even when I do get past the halfway line, they can get back and defend in numbers. What tactics settings allow for both things to happen - or is it more to do with manual skill? Because I want to try and do that myself.
2) This is a very specific dribbling question. I have noticed players can move very slowly with the ball very close to the feet and then suddenly kick it forward into space and run past the defender. I know that using R1 I can keep the ball close to my feet, but I don't know how to kick it forward. Could you please advise me on that?
Thank you for your help.
