View Full Version : Confused over game mechanics...

I'm not a bad player by any means, but i just don't get how this game works. I can score and create chances but i'm going wrong in the defence department somehow. I concede penalties when it's clearly not a foul, and i keep intercepting passes only to have them bounce off me and put my opponent through on goal. Also, whenever i'm in the opponent's box i get pushed and shoved to the floor but i can't get near the other person's players when he's in my box. Am I missing something here? I'm starting to not like this game...

Turn the difficulty down.

You have to pay close attention to your players...they'll pick the ball off out of thin air. Use the right-stick to get a first touch in...it helps. And try not to let your players bunch up on the ball. Work on 1 v 1 situations. Wait till the CPU player makes his move, then go. Don't try to predict his moves.

PKs do seem to be awfully prevalent in this game. I probably give one up every 2/3 games. Seems every time I pull the goalie out into the box he gets a PK.

I have to agree with your sentiments. I hate the new defensive system and turned the legacy one on. However online against other people who can use it I just get owned.
