Taking on with defending tips (OTHERS:Defending Master, Improve Your Defense), we wanted to show you how to effectively use the teammate control feature on FIFA 15 whilst in defence. This is one of the most under-used features in the whole game and needs to be used a lot more by gamers. Take a look at our video tutorial below and find out how you can use this to your advantage in games by positioning players in the right areas on the pitch.
As you can see from the above footage, it’s all about putting your defenders in the correct positions on the pitch and placing the defender you’ll be in the areas where he can intercept the ball from the opposition. By pressing and holding RB (for Xbox) or R1 (for PlayStation) this will drag out more defenders to help tackle the opponent and it’s called teammate control.
Although we do suggest that this is one of the most effective ways of retrieving the ball back for your team, it’s also not to be overused. You must only press that button when there’s either a crowded penalty area full of players or when your opponent is on the wings. You’ve got to be careful with the computer controlled AI as they do tend to give away a lot of free-kicks and in some cases penalties for their no-care approach to tackling.
In the clips shown above in tutorial, it showcase not just when to use the teammate control, but also when not to use it in defence. It would be a good idea to repeatedly watch the video and study it for a while just to get an idea of the timing in your head.
