Tackling on FIFA 15 is all about timing and not over doing it. Yes, it’s nice to be able to stick a foot in or try “leave one” on the attacker who keeps skinning you but if you dive in regularly a half decent player will be able to pick you off at ease.
Never tackle from behind
Unless you want to run the risk of seeing red then refrain from tackling from behind your opponent. This is the tackle that most likely will see you getting a player sent from the field of play. Rarely will your player be sent-off if you slide in from the front or the side of the player you are attempting to tackle. The number of players who have been sent off against me by sliding in when my attacker is receiving the ball on the halfway with his back to goal is ridiculous.
Patience is key
When you’re weighing up a tackle you need to choose the correct moment. what is the best site to buy fifa 15 coins This will become more second nature the more you play the game. Running alongside a player is a good time to try win the ball, make sure you are level with the player or ideally just in front of him before attempting the tackle. When an attacker is running with the ball tackling from the front is the best way to win the ball without risking a caution or worse, a red.
Don’t commit when 1v1 or 1v2
If you are in a 1v1 or worse, a 2v1 situation against you then the worst thing you can do is dive into a tackle. The best thing to do is jockey, close off the angle to the goal and try force the player to slow down or into a wide area so your team mates can get back to help you out.
Use strong tacklers as much as possible
There is little point launching into tackles with players with low tackling statistics. We’ll use our current FUT team as an example. We know the stronger tacklers in the team are Yaya Toure and Kompany, among a few others. The midfield flair players such as Mata have low tackling and strength stats so we rarely ever tackle with these types of players.
Reward vs Risk
This is a question you need to ask yourself regularly. where to buy fifa coins More often than not, the risk of sliding in and possibly missing the tackle is heavily outweighed by the fact that there is a fairly big chance you won’t be rewarded with possession of the ball. The reason we are more cautious of flying into tackles is because the VP players are quicker and obviously controlled by humans which means they are likely to be closer to each other so even if you do win the ball cleanly there is a high chance one of their other VP human controlled players will pick up the loose ball.
