Recently there has been some issues/confusion with proper sim gameplay here in the TFL SERIE. As a general rule, if it doesn't happen in a real soccer match, it shouldn't happen here. Below I've outlined some of the FIFA11 issues that have popped up recently: 100% aggression defensive pressure: - This is the biggest problem in FIFA11 that we have zero tolerance for here at TSO. If you go online for a ranked match, chances are you will experience this type of pressure. Two defenders (by use of the X/O combination) chase you down for the entire game, regardless of where you are on the field or time of game. There is a very fine line between proper high-pressure defense and 100% aggression defense, so make sure you understand what NOT to do, and you will be fine. Goalie Punt/Goal Kick defending There are 3 types of situations regarding this topic: 1) When the goalie has made a save and is running up to punt the ball away, please do not take your defender and try to block the kick by standing in front of the keeper. This is an easy way to score a goal, but it's very un-sim. If the goalie decides to drop the ball and start dribbling, apply pressure at will, but until then, let the goalie make his kick. 2) On goal kicks, the same rule applies. Trying to intercept a goalie pass from a goal kick is frowned upon; the sportsman thing to do is to let the goalie pass the ball. I know we've all benefited from this situation before, but let's make an effort to let the goalie pass the ball on goal kicks. Which leads me to #3... 3) When the ball is passed back to the keeper, in such a way that he cannot pick the ball up, feel free to pressure the ball at will. Set Piece defensive positioning - When your opponent is lining up a free kick on goal, do not drag your defender into the net in an attempt to block the shot.
