Maybe I am the only one but I chase people on my own and tackle them but sometimes I miss them cuz I Cant predict how they move?

I am confused how my opposition manages to always stay on my player even when I change position? I see that he is controlling hit?

How do you defend and how do you chase people? Manually or you hold contain to get to them?

    Thats because they aren't the controlling the player that is in front of you

    I think some of them are. I haven't used the contain button for about 4 years and I just assumed nobody was, but in certain games players are stuck to me like magnets.

    Welcome to FIFA, the E-sport where you don't actually need to know anything about the real sport or even know how to play because the game Will do it for you. I sometimes wonder if i'm playing FIFA or football manager. But it's easy to BE sure: football manager actually makes Sense...lol

    Contain is awful imo. If you're covering with another player then 2nd man contain is ok

    Because its situational. If you constantly hold 2nd man contain, there will be gaps to exploit.

    I contain only when the opponent think he’s Barca passing it around for 20 minutes yes otherwise he will just pass around me as the AI don’t pick up players

    Also just hold down x when they are in a crossing position always blocks it

    Watch the top 100 players on fut champs replays, you can see their controller inputs. Even they do press contain, because they've OP players, they're more likely to auto tackle and win the ball. It's a rubbish mechanic and contain should be removed from the game.

    This game needs a simple solution. No autotackles or interceptions by AI controlled players. Especially aggressive interceptions where sometimes the AI will just plow through your player.

    Make the AI more static. It will press and block to a degree but not tackle and mimic every movement of your player. Make it so that skillmoves are more effective and force players to control the closet player to the ball.


    On the other hand make the manual defending more effective. No rebounds or 50-50 situations when you manually tackle someone. Encourage players to defend manually. Make it rewarding to manually defend.

    Its not that hard, we all want it.
