Also the suggestion that just holding X is all you have to do in the old defensive system is bullshit, if you tried doing that online you'd get raped every match.
Very very true. People that just assume that that's how Legacy defending works are thick.
I still use Legacy Defending as it still enables me to position my defenders how I want them and helps me win the ball back quickly.

legacy defending is pretty much the same as tactical because you can press R2 and it will jockey itself. so you dont have to jockey every time. so they should put legacy in online

I like it how it offers something more individual based defending decisions. You can be a much more conservative style defender, or a very hands on rushing with other players style defending on something in between. Something Legacy restricted you to. The jockey system is very overpowered, but apparently they fixed it in Euro 2012 which is positive.
I don't think it's boring, I think it's made the game more interesting and challenging and skill based.

at the start of the game i hated it, but now i've played fifa 12 that much that i'm used too it so i wouldn't be bothered if it is kept in the game. my only suggestion would be that they tone down the ai. they are so difficult to break down.

Improve it but don't get rid of it. Yeah it can be frustrating at times but Legacy defending is far, far too easy.

It's realistic and everything, but...
It's made everything so boring. For a few years Fifa's been heading that way and while there was the occasional mental game of five or six goals (which was purely because someone forgot how to defend), scoreline's were getting lower and lower.
As ridiculous as they might have been I miss the days where matches could easily be something like 6-3.

They just need to sort the overpowered jockeying out

They should keep it in. Where is the skill in just holding x to tackle?
The defending may be better tweaked ever so slightly. In almost all football games before Fifa 12 I could do a season conceding a very low amount of goals, now it is much more difficult. Sometimes it does feel scripted that you will concede, which I don't like. But overall the tactical defending should remain with some minor tweaking hopefully.

It's actually ok. It can be improved but it does add a slight realism to the game, and I don't like playing extremely unrealistic football games.

It's terrible, it makes the game SO defensive and SO boring. "It takes skill to defend" - no, it doesn't. All you have to do is hold RB so that an AI player is tracking the man with the ball whilst you move the player that you're in control of ahead of them so that you're blocking any potential runs or passes.
