In my opinion, team defenses has yet to be perfected. Most players choose to let one player camp in goal, while the others just attack. The key to a good defense is knowing when to switch positions and clearing the ball out when there's too much pressure. Most players aren't really good at the first part.

Camping actually works a lot of the time. That's why there are soo many people who complain about it.

picture a really good attacking team playing against a not so good attacking team. The attacking team may have it in the other teams end for most of the game, but might only score 3-4 goals. theres your defensive team

Don't get me wrong, having a good offense makes a good defense. Putting pressure on a good defense will eventually make them crack, giving you a goal. It happens all the time in football (soccer). My issue is most teams have yet to perfect defense. It's usually one guy camps at goal...without positioning himself, while 2 guys attack....a 2-1 formation.

You have a good defense when your team knows when to trade positions, and when you defenders attack the ball and contest the shot. For example, imagine the ball is in the air and you going for an aerial. This is a 2v2 match by the way.

Now if you go in the air and see an open goal....your probably going to score no problem. Even htting it a bit of target still means a guaranteed goal. No pressure

Now put a keeper there. Let's say stevebills in the goal. Now it's different...if you don't place the shot accurately, or with enough power he's going to save it. Now you have to be accurate and have power.

Now let's say mercules is steve's teamate, and he also is now in the air with you, contesting the shot....and stevebills in the goal. Not only do you have to get the ball past steve but mercules as well, plus you have to be accurate, and you have to have power. You also have to get to the ball faster than mercules or he'll be closer to the ball, giving him a higher chance to stop the shot.

So now you have to less time to adjust to make an accurate shot, you have to get the ball pass the defender (mercules), and it still needs to have power. That's good defense. Defense is teamwork....and teamwork has yet to be perfected, not nearly as much as attacking.

you can't just pick 2 people though, you need trust in he other person, and for them to not be a ball hog.

2 people going for the same ball will always result in a fail, and sometimes meaning they both miss the ball.

I'm not too great with anyone inparticular (Except steve) possibly because I dont regularly team with that many people. I tend to be good with people who will go for a set then score style.
