Can we rename ECL to Excessive Crossing League ?
How is everyone finding ECL so far?
Obviously with this format we have more of an ability to tinker with gameplay related things to try and have the best competitive comp we can.
Do people think headers are the most common way of scoring? With human pros the same size as AI defenders they really do stand little chance in the air with human jumping, and with the nature of the format there's almost always going to be space wide.
Have seen a lot of really good attacking play though, much better than 11 when teams do try to play something more akin to real football.
Are any 'Anys' finding it tougher than Fifa 18 (if you played both).
I play Any for my ecl squad and its always the fullbacks that push up way to high leaving gaps in defense that always lead to a cross, its how we as a team concede our goals. tbh no one can really complain about crossing because everyone does cross at least 3-4 times a game. I do feel bad scoring shitty goals that come from the Anys bot not jumping in the air to intercept the cross or even making an effort. Idk thats just my opinion on crosses.
You control only half a team. So micromanage your defenders. As soon as you see fullbacks pushing up, change to them and bring them back. It's not rocket surgery.
well no shit thats what i do, its why im saying its a problem when they do push up and i've got a man running at me it leaves a gap
Then keep an eye on them and stop letting them run up. Ask your team to maintain possession for a few seconds so you can set up the defensive line? As the famous FIFA Pro Sarge once said: "Adapt. Or be adapted on."
