    Not been hanging around here that much as I’m not playing as much this year, just playing wl.

    Mainly trying to find out how you get your players to press constantly

    Pressing constantly isn’t the way to go if you want to consistently win.

    I’m dabbling myself atm with press on heavy touch & 7 depth and the players who leave 3 men forwards & counter quickly are difficult to defend against.

    The tactic I explained there works very well against the AI on SB, but online it’s a totally different experience.

    Cheers, it just seems everyone I play is constantly pressing from the first min and I can’t get a second on the ball.
    But when I try changing my tactics about nothing seems to work and it just feels like my team is constantly the same.

    I’ve just been tinkering tonight & have settled on Balanced, Width 5 & Depth 1. Means my team is still engaging the opponent but isn’t leaving gaps.

    Cheers, I’ll keep just tweaking my tactics until it feels a bit better

    I‘m kinda playing some „yolo“ fifa rn and it‘s pretty fun tbh. It‘s not the most effective one cause the casual wl sweat is playing drop back and only tries to score through counter attacks but i‘ve had a lot of fun attacking.
    3412 with one of the cm‘s on go forward and the other one on balanced.
    Feel like fullbacks aren‘t as important cause people don‘t use wingers anyway and everyone has these wide cam‘s so the three cb‘s are actually decent for me.

    41212 narrow or 433 (4) with 4 depth and 6 width for 41212 and 5 width for 433 is what has been good for me recently.

    really lol? I play 4 depth and although I'm not great defensively , if I put it on 1 depth I would concede more due to my players sitting so deep and would hate having to resort to being such a scrub.

    I play 7 on attack with fast build up & I found that I got hammered on the counter with 3 (on defensive) and above unless I played drop back, but that doesn’t press the opposition which I don’t like.

    It doesn’t make sense how it works tbh, but for me it’s spot on.

    It takes getting used too, but learn to turn away from the player your opponent is controlling. Don’t worry so much about every other player pressing as they won’t tackle you unless you run into them.

    I personally like to pass the ball about, but I also found that having the option to quickly counter your opponent prevents them pressing like crazy. Just use your full backs to play some RB&Y through balls into open space for your wingers, this will quickly turn your opponent inside out & they’ll change tactic.
