    In PES 2017 I got this down to a fine art form, just ask @Don Raphael 007 about the number of times Shawcross leapt like a salmon to head past his keeper. PES 2018 has taken a little bit more time to perfect this set piece, but having scored 6 or 7 corners in my last few games and spent a decent amount of time practicing them in the training arena I felt it was time to share this with the rest of P2E and anyone else that may read this article.

    BASICS

    Let’s start with the basics. When you are taking a corner pulling down on the left stick will give the ball a high trajectory, whilst pushing up on the left stick will give the ball a low trajectory. The amount of power you place in the kick then determines just how fast the ball will be delivered. Pushing left or right on the left stick will cause your ball to move in the desired direction. Getting a combination of left/right with up/down and just the right amount of power is the key to delivering the perfect ball to be headed or volleyed home. Try a few combinations in the training arena, starting with aiming for just outside the 6 yard box, curling the ball away from the keeper with a mid to high trajectory and about ¾ power.

    PLAYERS TO JOIN ATTACK

    When you are first looking at your form arrows in the team selection screen there are options where you can select your captain, free kick takers, penalty takers etc and right at the bottom there is an option called “PLAYERS TO JOIN ATTACK”. This will choose which players to join attack if you go for an all-out attack late on when losing and trying to grab a last minute equaliser but it will also decide which players to send up for corners. You’ll often find that centre backs have great heading statistics and are ideal to be sending up for corners. Unfortunately you can only pick 3 players but this will usually be both your centre backs and then a midfielder or forward.

    PLAYER SELECTION

    You’ll often find the best players to use for taking corners are full backs or midfielders and the stats to concentrate on are “place kicking” and “swerve”. You can filter through the 2018 PES Database based on these two stats and it will be no surprise to you to see Ronaldo and Messi up there with the best statistics. The place kicking stat is more for free kicks but they will also be able to deliver quick, whipped in corners, due to the swerve statistics. Lower down the ratings you’ll find players like Lamela and Quagliarella who are more than capable. I prefer to use a midfielder, if possible as you run the risk of a quick counter attack down a flank if you have a full back taking a set piece and the ball is cleared. If you press to change the corner kick taker the game will show you the suggested stats for who to use.

    TYPES OF CORNER

    As with PES 2017 you have options available if you press left on the directional pad. The options available are 6 YARD BOX, FAR POST, TRAIN and DASH. If you try and play a ball with low trajectory towards the 6 yard box and just push and hold up on the left stick the ball will be delivered flat but will probably fail to beat the first man. You can push up just after the ball has been kicked to flatten out the delivery and this is perfect for an attacking player heading towards the near post.

    6 Yard Box is perfect as long as you can keep the ball away from the goalkeeper and you will often see a tall centre back make his run to coincide with arriving in the 6 yard box as the ball arrives there. I’d suggest choosing this option but actually aiming your corner for just outside the 6 yard box, either curled away from the keeper or start the aim/direction of your corner further out and bend it in towards the 6 yard box.

    Far Post is a good option when used with about ¾ power and a high trajectory but the aim here is not necessarily to score from the header. You have 2 main options here, head the ball back across the face of goal towards one of your players or even down to one of your players or head it towards one of your own players that is waiting to shoot just on the edge of the box. You’ll nearly always have a player waiting there and if not you can always move one there.

    Train is a tactic some teams use where players line up one after another vertically so the defenders are unable to mark them and must track their runs. As the corner is delivered the players peel away, front post and back post. Around half power, curled towards the edge of the 6 yard box with a low trajectory is ideal here.

    Dash is similar to Train but just sees players waiting for the corner to then rush towards the box and meet the ball as they’re running in, without lining up in the order of the Train setting. You can vary power and trajectory here and it’s often as wise to aim a ball towards the back post as the front.

    (As well as heading the ball towards goal you can also use the directional stick to push towards goal/away from goal whilst hitting shoot for an acrobatic finish, such as a bicycle kick or scissor kick.)

    SHORT CORNERS

    New to PES 2018 is the ability to now press right on the directional pad and be offered 4 options for short corners. These are TOUCHLINE, RUNNER FROM DEEP, TWO OPTIONS, and RUNNER FROM EDGE OF BOX. These 4 options all relate specifically to short corners so you won’t want to put full power on any of these corner kicks. The runner from deep and runner from edge of box are going to require you to make sure you have players in those positions, ready to make the runs as the ball is crossed. Touchline is one I’ve barely used and need to experiment more with but the two options draws two players towards you, which then usually draws two defenders to follow suit and move out of position from the edge of the box, perfect for your attacker to run into that space and head past the keeper.

    MIX IT UP

    Have a practice in the training arena so you have a few different types of corner to choose from and then mix it up during a game. One of the greatest feelings will be the far post corner, if you manage to head the ball down to a teammate who then smashes one home from outside the box. The crosses in general are not as effective as they were in 2017, which is no bad thing but the corner is still a great way to score. Here’s one from outside the box, ¾ power to the back post, an attempt to head back to a team mate, cleared by the defence but Mikel Rico smashing home for Guingamp from outside the area.

http://play2enjoy.ipbhost.com/forum/59-the-feeding-ground/


The Feeding Ground, this place is not for the faint hearted, you will need a keen eye and a good budget. This is where teams advertise players for sale and trade, normally place your bid in the thread, be careful not to be drawn into a bidding war , it is advisable to do your research using all the resources available in the PTE player data section and bid thoughtfully, all bid must be entered in a specific format I.e. 25m , it is also a good place for trading players. You can also add cash to trade deals to encourage sale. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID , it's a sore subject around Santos fc , catch me online if you want to discuss it, but a little hint don't forget the M when binding or your bid will be void 25 M or million with out the M the PTE minions will void your bid , rant over, let's no bring up this subject anymore....

Well maybe one more rant , Santos fc hates paperwork, we at SANTOS have a reputation for tapping up players, but the truth is we have a forceful way of doing business in Brazil , kick in the door waving the 4 four springs to mind 👍🏿, but after the negotiations a deal has to be agreed , once both parties are a happy , you will be asked to WRITE IT UP, which basically means put it in ink, but there is a format and a procedure 😤 


Firstly go here

http://play2enjoy.ipbhost.com/topic/320-templates-for-trading-read-before-posting/

After reading this I advise you to copy the template that suits your deal example below
Player:  A. Lacazette 
Rating:  83 
Position:   Cf 
Leaving:  Marseille  @OZMAZTER09
Going to:   Bilbao  @The Poacher
For: £80m 

and goto http://play2enjoy.ipbhost.com/forum/64-transfer-fees-agreed/ and WRITE IT UP as they say, once again if your having difficulties with this contact your PTE mentor or just as the other dude to WRITE IT UP....

Once you are happy with you squad it's time to finally Playtoenjoy the quickest way to get involved is to check out the PTE announcements http://play2enjoy.ipbhost.com/forum/7-playtoenjoy-announcements/
