I reckon a good 50-60% of my goals conceded are either from corners or lol penalty decisions. So tilting conceding penalty after penalty when your not even making a challenge.

Actually probably not that high as most people are awful at pens and go down middle or miss, but i do concede a ton

Just got a Robben in the pack, cant believe he is worth 300k Messi and Ronaldo aside he must be the most expensive player in the game? i can only think of Thiago Silva who costs in the multiple of 100k's

Ribery is worth more than double Robben this year, which is surprising because Robben is the stand out RW and Ribery obviously has Ronaldo for company.

Ribery may be 5* skills also, that is worth tons this year as they reduced 5* skills a ton.

Ibra is also way more than Thiago, think Ramos is more than Thiago too.

Any tips on defending corners or have people just found a certain way to score like 75% of them ?

I hardly used to concede from them at all, and at least 10-15 of my last 20 goals conceded have been from corners and its tilting the life outta me, just lost 2-1 again vs some random who made no real clear cut chances and scored two corners. They aren't using custom ones afaik, they pretty much put them 8-9yards out from goal and just score non stop. Its def too far to call the gk out.Most the time i take control of one of my CBs (chiellini/ogbonna) and challenge for it but people like walcott keep beating them in air. I have no idea wtf to do and fwiw i used to concede almost never from corners and am also a lot better than most in the air (imo), win most aerial battles when i have a decent CB/ST in the air from GKs etc, i just cant stop conceding from corners.

FFFFFFUUUUUUUU

i just spam X, the comp will auto switch you to be controlling the player who is going to be closest.

how do you do custom corners? the one where they all line up on the goal line then run out is legit. some dude pulled that and had 3 guys wide open every time.

i made a pretty detailed post on how to defender corners last week itt.

the gist is your defender having his momentum going in the direction you want to head it.

i rarely concede from corners.

the 4-2-3-1 with two pacey CAMs is the finest crossing formation in the game, i was crushing with an SIF Fellaini up top until i sold him in anticipation of an UP card that never came

lol i dont think anyone has ever gone middle or missed a penalty against me. im getting better at reading the feet but still feels like im mostly guessing

Ive always considered myself sick good at soul reading pens. I also think anticipating penalty shoot-outs is easy. Its just so easy to think about which way he went last time, both for the kick and the dive, then using that to think what he might do this time, or what he thinks I might do etc.

1st kick in a shoot out is usually their "go-to" kick, so on the decisive penalty(5th usually) hes going to repeat penalty 1 a good %.

Also for those KSI glitchers who put it in that spot where the GK dives past/under it, just note their first pen. Then if they do that(if no-one knows what Im talking about find it on youtube) next pen shift to the opposite side on run up, then dive the other way, works nicely too if they do that pen where they go just under the bar, slightly to the side. Say hes shooting to his left, then we shift the stick to the right on run up, then dive to the top left corner(as we look, not the GKs left). This covers both the KSI gay pen, and the almost straight, high shot(as long as its not straight, this wont save those)

This also saves the chipped pen, so it covers a few bases.

yeah every time i try to do something similar they end up blasting it top right lol.

i spent some time in the arena trying to read the plant foot and definitely am better than a complete guess but the stutter approach messes it up, and sometimes you just gotta soul read
FIFA 13 Quote
02-18-2013 , 10:46 AM
Much easier to soul read IMO. Its pretty easy, just ask yourself where hes gonna put it. Like you would at a poker table.

The foot thing needs incredible last second reactions. IDK if thats even possible.

When i say middle i include ones that are just to the side, as if people only put a tiny bit of direction on them you can wait an see the direction and flick the stick to dive and still make a save. If its closer to the corner you won't reach but its especially good for the shootouts, as soon as you notice someone only aims a tiny bit to the side being safe you can save most the pens.

I like hybrids so be creative.
