All game I have opponents AI controlled players sprinting 30 yards into me from behind.
Meanwhile my midfielders / CBs just let opponents walk past them and don't bother getting back. Sometimes they even just walk up the pitch whilst opponent is attacking.
It's impossible to avoid too, my opponent is controlling one of their players, then i have an oppoisition player from 30 yards behind sprinting or drifting towards my player, and it's unavoidable, no matter which direction you turn or move they just instantaneously drift and mirror you.
Meanwhile my players slide out of the opponents path even if im pressing direction towards the opponent. and my AI players just seem to kinda move out of the way and don't track or shadow opponents like their's do mine.
Furthermore with blocks, if I take a shot in space, opponent's defenders whether AI controlled or otherwise seem to snap into block animations backwards, sideways, opposite direction from 5 yards away. Whereas I can be face to face with an opponent, press block, and my player's block animation has no effect on the ball and it results in no block, whether on pass or shot.
Also when making passes sometimes their players in full sprint, intercept backwards with no slow down animation or direction change, a full 180 degrees angle backwards blindside at full speed.
I'm using good players/defenders whose stats should not be an issue.
I'm getting 20 tackles a game, to my opponents 4, despite their players making a million interceptions and tackles throughout the match.
Is there a setting or something I'm missing, like in the assisted controls settings etc, that would enable a similar behaviour from my players??? Or anything in the tactics and instructions.
Has anyone else had this experience?? Have you found a fix to the problem at all??
