Because after today apparently I'm god awful at it 😂 😔 Struggled massively today, anyone else? Played a mix of draft and rivals, won all my placement games on early access. Got placed in div 4 1432 skill points.
Defensively I feel helpless, especially to opponents using l1 dribbling and any kind of skill moves, I get near someone and they can basically go straight though me like a knife through butter, felt so vulnerable every time I'm without the ball, obviously was the same for alot of my opponents as every game is basically a goal fest.
Manual tackling feels as unrewarding as ever when I thought that was meant to change... the bounces and rebounds are brutal. I won more than I lost today but it was basically smash or get smashed the moment you have to chase a game your going to get carved apart. Attacking feels so overpowered compared to defending especially with L1 dribbling.
Lost 2 games by a goal and then 4/5 games by 4/5 goals. Obviously plenty of bs with bounces and rebounds but the root of the problem obviously is that i struggled to tackle alot. Likewise other than a couple games when I won the opponent was on the receiving end of a smashing. Obviously need to play more and adapt to the new game but got to it fast if I want to be hitting elite in WL and 2600 skill rating like last year.
