The more i play the worse i'm getting, literally losing all motivation to play this game.
Watched tutorials and read peoples help on here but im just getting worse and i cant even see how im going to get better.
Ive just watched Krasis tutorial and using his logic which looked good in theory. But theres just a few problems im having with it.
How on earth can i L2 jockey the player with the ball and control the defender whos tracking attacking players runs at the same time? Its not possible.
If i just jockey, im killed by through balls and passes accross the box because my AI controlled players just don't do anything, the ball usually rolls within a foot of them and they make no attempt to intercept.
If i switch to track the run i lose control of the jockeying defender, and R1 press to which they literally just chaperone the attacker towards the goal under no pressure.
Am i missing something here, i can't control them both at the same time. There is no humanly way to switch between the two defenders quick enough, the ball will already be in the back of the net with the way the attackers fly past.
I'm not even gonna touch upon manual tackling because as soon as l2 is released the attacker just flies past my defender.
It seems my only hope is jockey and hope the AI intercepts something for me. And half the time they do that the attacker steamrolls into me before ive even got time to react and ive lost it again.
Yet it seemd like some people I play have their AI controlled defenders steam out into my striker when ive played to feet, so i don't know if theres some new button combination for that. Other times they literally lunge 10 feet accross the pitch to tackle me, yet when i try it my players just lunge in slow motion past the player and the attackers in on goal.
Desperate for any help from anyone whos got defending down now because im just losing more and more interest in this game with each passing game.
