So how are you countering this drop back nonsense?

Are you matching your opponent? Or keeping possession and drawing them out?

Or are you just going hung ho and all out attack, pegging them in their own half?

    By not playing. Have only started the game up once in the last week and even then I forfeited 3 out of the 5 games I attempted to play due to terrible game play.

    Formations with LM and RM (41212 wide or 451) the two wide mids add a bit more unpredictability than LW and RW do

    It depends on the opponents formation. Mostly 433-4, but sometimes 352.

    It takes some adapting though... until you learn how your team moves and how your opponent reacts in each formation... plus skills moves takes sometime to become natural... It made me hate the game and myself for a while, but now it’s been worth it. Hang in there and appreciate the journey! Good luck!😀

    4-2-3-1. (2) Increase the players in the box, increase depth, pressure on heavy touch. Left and RB on stay back.

    These drop back boys are resorting to long ball tactics which your L/R B's are there to stop them on the wings. CBs cover the centre.

    Average shots against me right now playing them is about 5, my average shots against them is about 25.

    Your wingers draw their full backs out, your CMs nullify their CMs leaving your striker in a 1on2 situation (where if you're good enough) you can take advantage of.

    Where are all of you people at. Everyone on here says they don’t play PTB. But in game you guys are nowhere to be found

    I just want to add that playing with your FBs on balanced is better against PTB players.
    I just like to involve my FBs in the attack which creates a lot of 2v1 situations on the sides, plus if the opponent over committed on the sides it will leave your CDMs, CAM and striker wide open for passes in the middle.

    Recently changed my fullbacks to balanced actually. Really good going forward. Only issue I had was their stamina sometimes

    I rarely play, but when I do encounter these players I play for the 0-0 and attempt to retain possession all game.

    If they get through I either hack en down for a penalty and quit or dashboard.

    Gg imo pals

    Balanced is good no doubt about it. Perhaps Balanced is best while at a draw, stay back when winning then? I only suggest stay back because most of the long balls are sent up to 90+ pace wingers.

    Keep posession, patience and overlapping fullbacks, when they counter just rotational fouling

    I don't have any problems with stamina on my FBs while playing press on heavy touch.
    try it out and don't sprint a lot with your FBs. only when needed and there is a space to exploit.

    I can't play with my FBs on stay back. I like the support and width they provide on the sides.

    I manually track runs on the sides. sometimes they get through though. but it will happen even when they are set to stay back.

    3 ATB, all our attack, get a goal. The funny thing about these people is that even when you’re a goal up, they won’t try and get the ball and attack so it’s possession from then onwards. Literally been 2-0 up against one of these guys just passing it about on the half way line while he’s controlling Kante near the edge of the box. He called me a time waster afterwards haha

    happens a lot with me. If I can't find a good chance to go forward, I just go back to my CBs and start again, never rush against these *****
    was winning 3-1 this WL and the guy doesn't want to choose the closes player to the ball and kept 2nd man press me in his half. it's easy to take one AI player.

    the thing is they don't know how to build up attack I think, they are used to the Ping pong Counter attack BS.
