    Quote from blue_eddie >>

    I assume most people understand a 'dab' with Pogba is unintentional/his default celebration.

    Anyone who has played more than 10 games surely realises this?! Smile

    I always let anyone off for 'unintentionally dabbing with Pogba' - If it is intentional, I don't even realise Smile w/ teeth

    IMO - He is the one exception to the rule.

    I know. I'm saying I hate it so much that I don't let him do it when I score. Wink

    The fucking dab! I have Pogba and I'm mad scrambling to press anything at all on my controller so that fucker doesn't do it after he scores. In a qualifying match earlier this week, I was playing a guy who was showing all the signs of being handicapped. I shouldn't have been in the game at all. He finally scored in like the 80-something'th, so I gave him an own goal straight from kickoff so I couldn't come back. He dabbed after it. I could've killed him.

    Quote from BmB97 >>

    I will sound like an idiot here, but what do mean trying a higher pressure? Or low pressure? 

    It's a setting under Custom Tactics. This helps explain the concepts of each setting.

    Quote from MJELEB >>

    Your different defenders will perform differently with the same custom tactics.  You need to get used to how each defender/defence plays and adjust your play or your custom tactics for each.

     

    For example, if you have players like Chiellini and Boateng you can have low pressure and bring back your midfielders.  They are both excellent defenders and won't struggle in the last third.

     

    If you have lesser defenders like Smalling you might want to try a higher pressure to use his ability to win the ball back higher up the pitch.  He isn't as good with low pressure as his actual defending isn't as good as Boateng/Chiellini.

     

    Chiellini ideally suits low pressure.  Ramos epitomises a defender suited to high pressure.  I would say Boateng can do either.

    ^This^ is the kind of help/insight I wish there were more of on this forum. I can't speak for anyone else, but I know for me that I get lost going down one path and sometimes forget how everything works together. In fact, I'm currently "lost" and may have to start my own thread so someone can talk some sense into me. Innocent

    posted a message on F*ck this game

    I'm close to giving up myself. One week I win 18 in WL and the next I can't win but 6 games in 20. Then the following week I can't win more than 2 games in a qualifier. I've had a run of about 4 weeks now where I get reds like it's my job. Never from behind, never the last defender, guy dribbling down the wing, and yet Lewi two-foots me from behind as I'm chasing a ball to the corner with a defender and no card at all. Passes are going to guys I'm not even debatably aiming for, if they even make it to my guy in the first place. My defenders are getting that "ghost drag-back" when I'm not even controlling them so their guy can go clean through on goal, and that's even if they "see a run" being made at all to move in the first place. Bigger, stronger guys like IF Vogt and 2IF Brooks are getting knocked off the ball by Dwight Gayle. Oh, 2IF Brooks with Anchor is also slower than NIF Akinfenwa, should anyone be making a decision on what players to get. I don't win headers on corners, on either end of the pitch. My button delay seems to have increased the past couple of weeks. I struggle to score after my 30-button combo build-up and then get equalized by the largest slice of Swiss cheese defending you've ever seen. Obviously I never deserved any of the "success" I had in this game. The scripting was always in my favor when I won and I'm really just not good. I don't understand how to attack, I don't understand how to defend, and evidently I don't even know how to press buttons properly. At least the pace-whoring years were predictable and consistent.

     

    Now to make sure that I don't spend a single penny on FP next year even when the "maybe this is my year" thoughts enter my mind.

    I haven't seen this many people gang up on the Germans since WWII. Vidal should never have been sent off. Casemiro shouldn't still be on. CR7 throws in the hat, one clearly offside, after moving to ST when Benzema gets taken off. Unreal.

    posted a message on Players Up for Corners

    I'd say I do the Corner Instructions 80% of the time and nothing seems to do anything different/affect the outcome of my corner. It's just frustrating that the thinking behind who's up in the box for corners in real life and who's back to defend isn't "in the game."

    posted a message on Players Up for Corners

    Is there any way to dictate who is in the box for corners and who isn't? I've noticed there's usually at least one of my CBs who stays back, yet their Heading rating is the highest on my team. Why isn't the default to have the highest Heading ratings in the box for corners?

    If I'm +2 or better, I'll try to rainbow the keeper on one-on-ones. I actually did it once, but didn't snag a video of it. To be frank, there have been at least 20x it didn't work.

    Both players should make the TOTS, so don't waste your coins on any other version of them now. Only reason I have OTW Kante now is because he's untradeable.

    At least you can use them for SBCs, more value than untradeables had in previous versions.... Smile

    True, but still sucks considering my issue was with not being able to turn a profit on a stuck card.

    They are untradeable. I opened one and contacted EA Help again. They said there was nothing they could do and to open a discussion on the forums. Well, here it is...

    BOLLOCKS!!!

     

    Feel free to post in there saying what scum EA is for this. Innocent
