FIFA 12 Achievements

Precision Tackler

Obtain a successful tackle percentage of 80% with a minimum of 5 tackles in a game  

For this, you must have a tackle precision of at least 80%, meaning that 80% of your tackles must actually capture the ball/bring down an opponent. Also, you must have at least 5 tackles, so you can't do a single tackle correct and complete the match without tackling. This should come as you play Career mode or perhaps Ultimate Team, but if you're having serious trouble start a Friendlies Match and tackle your friend 5 times. Then complete the match.

i found this easy, put it on a shot game, and go to controller settings and right at the bottom there is a defender setting, put that on legacy defending, and then defending is like it was in fifa 11 where you can just hold A,
after that in a game just wait till they are running straight and hold a to make the tackle, after you have done 6 tackles, (1 extra incase you miss one) then just chill the rest of the game and dont do anymore tackles

For me, even with the "old" defense system it doesn't work...
each time i took the ball from opponent even if he's comin straight to me, it counts as 1/2 tackles!!!!
Any ideas?

Just play the game with 2 controllers (and 1 player) and with your account make the tackles! ;-) Should be no issue!

Yep also finding this tough - seems playing with a friend over a longish match should be the key. If anyone else needs, add me. Gamertag: Flippmo79.

I'm having the same problem as well, I've tried on both Legacy and Tactical defending but each time I successfully make a tackle the stats say 1/2 tackles. This is after I've only even pressed one button in the entire game. Any tips would be appreciated, this is driving me mad...

The most easiest Achievement.

Just choose the "Legacy Defending" and hold the whole game RT+A.
The player will run after the ball like a maniac.

Surprisingly, choosing 'Legacy Defending' and holding RT+A all game DOES work. Got it on my first try, Man U v Stanley and won 6-0 on amateur. :)

I Suck At Defending So It Is Really Hard!

Comment #29 by Dark15Vince

Guys, please help me! I´ve just tried what it is posted here, even Legacy Defending with LT+A, what seems to have worked for some people, but I´m still getting counted 2 tackles when I only make 1!!!! It doesn't matter if I make it right or miss it, it just counts twice. Is there a way to fix this? thank you!

I am a horrible tackler in this game, I mostly end up with fouls and cards but I still got it. You need ONE PLAYER to do this NOT THE TEAM. I did it with Puyol from Barcelona. It popped at the end of the game and when I looked at the tackling stats, he was 6/7 and everyone else was a 1/5, 2/6 and so on.
