View Full Version : Tips on scoring

04-08-2003, 21:35
Ok, my next problem..I can either seem to defend very well and not score, or not defend very well score 3 goals and still manage to draw!
I might be out of practice as i used to play ISS all the time, but ive played for nearly 2 days now on and off and its starting to annoy me.
I know if i can get my form back i can get really far in the ML, But it doesnt seem to be happening, and basically im not scoring as many goals as i would like to, so any tips on scoring?
Ive played ISS for a long time and i feel that im a good player, i can manage hard, but extreme seems to be beyond me sometimes...I can win 5 matches in a row, and then lose the next 11, its not good! :(

Nice replies...ok ill try and shorten my question, When running dead straight with only the keeper to beat, he seems to save it all the time, i try chipping him and the ball goes agonisingly wide...any tips? :confused:

Try not to hold down the shot button to long when you're chipping the ball. You can also feint the keeper with the shoot-feint (square+x). Also you should try not to get into the keeper before shooting. you could also shoot form long range. But when you get real near the keeper and arealone with him, it's most efficient to shoot a low shot where you try to set it clos to the posts!!

Please tell us who your strikers are.
What formation do you use, and particularly - how many strikers and OMFs? Do you edit the player positions?

Some quick advice would be to only play strikers who are on a red or yellow form arrow as they will be more successful at scoring than players on lower form arrows.

Get in the area, face the goal and tap [] once quickly - this should get you a few goals to get started, rolled low into the far post corners.

Try using the [] -> R1 lob shot - This needs some practice but is easier than the L1+[] lob.

Use the R2 dribble and a quick change of direction to round the keeper when through 1-on-1.

If you could give us an idea of your squad, that would help too.
Let us know how it goes.

Its the default squad, mpenza coming in soon, default 3-5-2 formation, i know all about the arrows, and i use chips and everything when one on one with the keeper, but unless i approach at an angle i always miss or he saves it!

Even when tapping square dead on with the keeper doesnt work too often. Ive started to use the R2 dribble around their area as i feel i can win more free kicks with it..I just need to get my groove back, and ill be fine! :)

chipping never works for me. i did one once with dugarry but thats it. maybe it works better with flair players.

chipping is a move that's impossible to master...
I've only scored about 4 chips.

chipping works perfectly if you double tap the shoot

lol i beg to differ :cool: I score almost all the time, out of 10 chips i'd probably score 8 :D

As for your problem,the feint is probably the best option! also if theirs a team mate near side press triangle and then shoot with him!
