    I can't tackle / defend in Fifa 12 [Excellent Video Guide]

    It really bugging me, that much that i've had to start this thread, I basically can't tackle, players just run around me and score, lost one game 13-1. I know i'm not a good player but i'm not that bad!! Any one got any tips?


    ===UPDATED=

    A good guide here:

    just play like defenders do in real life...keep a yard or two between you and the man you're marking (unless a clear tackling opportunity presents itself), and keep the ball in front of you... you have to actually think about the defending, not just mash the red button and run your player into the guy with the ball.

    Lol, can't remember if I put it in the other thread but I was 4-0 down at half time in my first game. And i'm quite good, the most I usually lose by is a couple of goals

    somebodies been having a bit of fun.

    anyway, you probably just suck at the game. play against the computer on the hardest difficulties to work on defending.

    Worst advice ever!! Even if you're Barca v Torquay you'll spend half the game being waltzed through. You'll end up breaking something or having a heart attack!

    its the only and best way to master the mechanics of the game properly imo. granted playing against someone else is different, but if you can put the computer down on World class and above you'll give anyone a game.

    Fuck this fucking game. So my AI jogs in the direction of Drogba, he falls over and thats a pen? Then Rio walks past Sturridge and he wins it in injury time, fucking bull. Then EA thought it'd be clever to have a 'surprise element' to online so I have to play black/white stripes v black/white stripes, impossible to play. Then now the guy has fucking 3 lucky deflections off a defender into his path to get an empty net. Thinking of selling this shite already. I cant giantkill on this anymore because defending is retarded and all the fun has been sucked out of FIFA because of this ridiculous defending. Instead of close battles I either get raped or am raping them. Rant over, think I'm gonna explode!!

    EDIT: Oh yeah and apparently the only time I perfect a sliding tackle is worthy of a yellow card? Thanks EA, game killers.
