Had to go ptb and counter attack to do it.

So dissapointing that you cant play in an attacking way ktherwise your defence goes missing.

    I’m fine with defending on balanced, I can still keep clean sheets (not as often as last year tbf) and still score to win

    PTB isn’t as common as people pretend.

    They mistake good defending for PTB.

    Glad you did because I still haven't. :D

    I just feel completely helpless on defense when I'm trying to win the ball back. My defender's foot could be touching the ball, but the attacker will still keep possession.

    I haven't quite figured it out yet.

    I would say going PTB and counter attack was the exact opposite of getting the hang of the game.

    I supose if not being thrashed game on game due to bad ai defensive positioning then that's cool.

    It's a work in progress.

    Just go ptb and counter. Just see if that helps.

    I'm awful at all, if they ping it around I find myself just tracking the ball constantly a step behind

    And if they get in tight I either get done on the dribble or by a 1-2, or I'll tackle but it's too weak to cause any bother and they continue on through

    I was never the best at defending but held my own I suppose, this year I'm just falling apart it feels

    I am experimenting. Starting on ptb and dependent on how game is panning out changing to accommodate.

    To be fair, some form of d-pad defence setting is needed to stop LB+A 1-2's in behind. That's the only consistent fix I've found anyway.

    The thing i am finding is that when someone who ping pong passes against ptb they sometimes get wrapped up in it. Just doing it for the sake with little attack to it.

    You can find yourself a couple of goals up on the counter quite easily now because they seem to get bogged down in doing it over and over and you hit then on the counter.

    After that the have no plan b.

    There's obviously some people who are going to beat you but it's interesting nonetheless.

    Watch some of the youtube tutorials. I was at least a week in before even knowing there was a concept of powering up a tackle like you do with a shot.

    Also when you're playing competent oppo with top end players, defending should be hard. Try facing Neymar irl. People seem to want everything on a plate

    :mrgreen:

    Legit question though. Points out that certain people have no plan b, so i'm wondering what his is, beyond ptb and counter.

    Never asked for anything on a plate tbf, just sharing my experience, I actually like the defending as is, just struggling with it, still won more than I lost last weekend league and have qualified for this one so I'm not the only person struggling to adapt

    Just like the endless git gud ones in response to people who are clearly struggling.

    Saw how some people were advising to go to ptb.

    Just as last year using the false 9 which enabled better movement in midfield to pass.

    You take advice. Give it back yet some just have to be the douches.
