Today, I almost felt like uninstalling the game when a League 2 defenders were all playing like Maldini on prime doing their magnetic shielding and tackling accurately and precisely. Even though I won 2-0, I couldn't dribble past anyone cause my player felt like rubber-banded when dribbling. Ugh.

I am thinking about starting a thread on FIFA forums to see if they can change the tackling. We need a slider for tackling and fouls. Although today's patch together with my latest nightly played quite well today for me. *shrugs*

The reason for the lack of fouls is the precise tackling from CPU defenders. I wish we could add more error to it.

I just made another version just for you :). its in the nightly folder as 2017-10-25-TAG. I played a quick match Real Madrid vs. Barnet. I was able to get past players easily with Ronaldo. Even got brought down twice for a red card. Give it a go.

I edited the db and now I average 15 CPU fouls + 3-4 yellow cards a game. In the game I'm playing right now, it's at the half and the CPU has 9 fouls.

Tackling is not the reason. It has to do with speed and aggression mostly, as well as how you play the game, e.g. if you run all the time, the CPU can never foul you.

Skills splash screen tip I just saw says using fake shots helps when dealing with defenders.
My mate does this ALL the time. Since the early FIFA that introduced this. Its a silly way to get away from defenders but it works.


Nope. I am finding it so strange. Regardless of stats, strength, tackling ability. I cannot bypass CPU defense without passing.

I'm just wondering whether the slider is "nerfing" the ability. Yes the tackling is over powered but I was able to easily get past a defender on several occasions in one 6 min half with all sliders at 50/50 at legendary. Its all about timing your run/sprint button. The CPU can do it against each other too.

Anyhow. I will keep looking into it. If I can make tackling be completely useless then we can work backwards from there.

I will try now with all sliders to 50/50.

If you use close (advanced dribbling) with skilled players you can get by any defender with the right touch.
