One big concern about FIFA18 defending requiring more skill
When I think back about how FIFA17 was very AI assisted when defending, I always thought this was a bad thing as everyone could basically defend in this game.
Well, this is true, but on the other hand I am very thankful of having this "feature" in the game. FIFA17 suffered a lot from input delay so that having the AI helping you out in these matches was great. I would not be able to defend at all with input delay.
Non-delayed games are a different story as I tend to defend manually in these matches.
Now that people state that FIFA18 will require more skill in defending, putting more emphasize on manual defending, I have the concern that having input delay will destroy you completely when you try to defend manually.
FIFA17 could compensate input delay with AI defending, but this most likely will not be possible in FIFA18 anymore. I really hope the servers and their locations are better this year…
