    Please please please fix tackling.  It is still very bad.  Making it more frequent did not help, in fact just made it worse.  The tackling is still just as random as it was, causing random free kicks/penalties for the opposing team.  Pressing tackle is based on chance, no timing involved, no skill, it's all chance.  

     

    Offense

    Infiltrators play like idiots.  When I have midfielders with the ball ready to send a through ball past the defense line, they always rush back to the middle of the field instead of playing deep and wide where their position is.  In the rare event that they do play deep and receive a through ball, they dribble around like third graders and easily get tackled.  Which leads me to my next point:

    Tackling 

    This part of the game is very broken.  When I am defending and I try to tackle an incoming attacker, 75% of the time this happens:  

    • Advantage for the other team and the other team gets the ball somehow (because my other defenders seem to run away from the ball as if they are scared of the ball for no necessary reason)
    • Free kick for the opposing team
    • Penalty kick for the opposing team <--- which should not happen as frequent as it does currently.  Tackling is very broken inside the box.

    The other 25% is what is supposed to happen: my defenders actually get possession of the ball.  I don't know what it is with tackling, but it is so bad right now making the game very frustrating to play.

     

    TL;DR: 

    1. Make offensive players play their actual positions (Play deep with ball possession).
    2. Make tackling more consistent and more in favor of whoever is tackling.  Right now, tackling is a 25% chance of a turnover in ball possession, which is extremely low.
    3. Would be nice to have strikers/producers have more curve in taking long shots.

    Need proof that this game is broken?  WTF moments:

    I really think the new system is 100 times better than the old (and slow!!!) one. Now the matches feel less frustrating and the game more palyable. Please dont revert back to the old one.

    The game has lots of potential but the tackling is frustrating. I would prefer if there were an option for a less risky tackle, as compared to the bone-crunching tackle that is the default setting at the moment.

    An option to instruct your players to play deep would be good. It's annoying when you are defending a lead, all of your players seem to be committed in the opposition's half and your line of defence is split by a through ball. 

    Some of the gameplay is great, its really intuitive and addictive. Keep up the good work, looking forward to further updates!

    I also do not see why the 'infiltrator' player type loves to dribble and lose the ball all the time.  Every time I send a perfect through ball zipped past the defence, the infiltrator will get it sure, but he will just dribble randomly from side to side and then just get tackled.  Useless speed if he can't dribble correctly and get the ball past the defense line.  

    Fix this and then fix the seemingly always penalty tackling and then game would go from 1 star to almost 4-5 stars.

    Also why do the forums have to have a 'wait for approval' for each new post?  The forums are here to discuss our opinions, why is there an approval for our opinion?

    The tackles have become a bit too fast. Its impossible to pass a player without him having the tackle option

    Change tackle back to original time, fix the AI so players don't run away when the opponent gets a loose ball. Allow defenders to actually make normal tackles instead of jockeying the attacker until he scores.

    The new tackling timer ruined everything. Before it was so much fun because if you make a bad decision with your tackle you might be in trouble and if your opponent messes up with his tackle you have to quickly react on offense to take advantage of the situation. Now there is no more strategy, just a horrible tackling fest. Every player you try and pass just tackles you. It doesn’t even look like real soccer any more because of how much tackling there is. It’s so sad this changed because this was my favorite game! Now I’m just frustrated thinking of starting a game (so I won’t until this is fixed). Please please go back to the old tackling timer, and soon! The old system was so perfect and made so much sense.

    Please revert back to original tackle times, it is impossible to score in this unless you get a penalty or on a counter. Also goalkeepers are inconsistent, at times they make good saves and at times they leave easy shots, also they rush out wrongly at times and don't rush at other times.

    Please revert it asap to the previous state. The game now is only based on the luck of the tackles! And players are always tackling. The tackles should get twice the reload time or more, but be more effective and instantaneous. I'm ok if my player fails sometimes a tackle, but the success of the tackle should be based on the player stats. If my level 3 tackle a level 1, my player should tackle successfully most of the time.

    Also, please explain me: when my attackers level 3 try to pass or dribble defence with level 1, it never works. Get tackled all the time. I'm sure that the levels of the players don't have much effect... Please fix also this!

    Also, when my attackers get isolated on front, they often just stop running after 3sec to shoot at the goal from very far. It is non-sens.

    Like others in this forum, I confirm goalkeepers are inconsistent. I just had a game where my level 3 attacker couldn't score agains a goalkeeper level 1 after 4 attempts with well placed shots.

    If you want to give players more control, try to make us guess the opponent next pass by selecting a player on the pitch that will be better at anticipating the pass when correctly guessed. We could in a success case do a better tackle or interception or placing. If the guess is not good, it might open space on the filed for the opponent evolution.

    This game has a very cool concept and I would play it with a lot of pleasure. But it needs some improvements and more important, it absolutely needs to revert this last patch with the non-sens tackle fest ruining the game.

    SERIOUSLY THAT TACKLING IS JUST REMOVING THE SENSE OF THE GAME. The game idea is based on the fact of logic and strategy. I saw stupid  and weak players  tackle carelessly everytime  and win the ball. In fact i quit playing until you fix that <please do not swear> update.

    Hi all,

     

    Thanks for the valuable feedback on the tackle timer amongst other things. We've taken this into consideration after reviewing our data and you'll see it's now longer again (although shorter than it was originally). We think this will provide a good balance between playing to the strengths of all players (including dribblers), and reducing frustration and waiting when defending.

    Also, please only downvote posts if you don't find them constructive, not if you don't agree with them.

    EDIT: The "pending approval" mode has now been fixed - you should be able to post normally.

    Thanks!

    Hi Guys,

     

    The game is perfect now after the tackle timer adjustment. An offline gameplay mode would be nice feature to be included in future updates.

    I love the concept even though things can get quite frustrating at times.

    Is there any chance you will be creating a competitive (Esports) side somewhere in the roadmap?

    Thanks for the suggestions Nicholas and Toni. Both of these are good ideas, and something we may take a look at in the future, though they're not in our immediate plans. Always happy to read new ideas for our games, so keep them coming any time you like. If it's something you've thought a lot about and want to flesh out, feel free to make a new post and encourage other community members to contribute.
