    Are counter attacks not attacks?

    So the attack then.so many teams irl play counter attacking football so why not do it in game just don't rush forward when you have the ball pass it around a bit draw there team out.

    How dare the opponent react to continued attacks by maintaining a solid defense and waiting for a good opportunity.

    Some games it just happens.

    I play on possession, and try to keep the ball and attack. But sometimes I just get pegged in my own half, and ofcourse I will counter from tjay situation.

    It may be down to your playstyle penninf them back.

    If you're making a concerted effort to hold the ball, and you're good at it, do you think a smart opponent is going constantly lunge out and get out of position, enabling you to attack? No, he's going to recognize that you will be passing him to death and react by sitting back and waiting for you to make a mistake.
  • i try to play quick posession football.
    i will move the ball around quickly and create the spaces to make for an attack.
    i rarely ever use over the top ball. or i rarely ever cross it in.
    i try and play the arsenal way sometimes and create attacks like that.

    I tend to find those with better teams go for the jugular and those with worse sit back and counter, which is how football tends to be played now. And if they are just staying solid keep playing the ball around. fitness really matters in the last 20-30 minutes so if they've been chasing the ball you should have a big advantage late on

    I've been playing a lot more possession. Mostly triangle passing it works wonders. I try to keep possession in the opponents half and pass it around until they start to throw everyone at you. I started 0-4 and ended up winning 3 straight since I've been doing that with 65-35 every game. The counters are the only difficult part so make sure you have a CDM around 70-80 pace so you don't get beat hard on counters.

    If you play with possession, better make it count.

    There is possession for the sake of possession, and there is useful possession.

    Do you not watch football ? Counter attacking is the most common way of scoring goals

    I do. Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.

    That being said, FIFA (well, like football irl) has a tendency to peg you into a role early, there are games where i could not play attacking if i wanted to.

    One thing that helped me in 16 in games where i have lots of (fruitless) possession was switching things up and just hoofing the ball up front at time or work with early crosses. Basically try something and worst case force the opponent to build up from deep in his half for a change.

    This.

    I personally don't go for possession and I often have the least in my matches...but I play so many guys that possess the ball but don't know how to do anything with it. And I don't consider myself a great defender, people are just stupid with the ball. I play more direct. I'm going drive straight to your box.
