In 2D Soccer Simulation league, agents will decide based on information and data in their model. Effective decisions need to have world model information without any noise and missing data; however, there are few solutions to omit noise in world model data; so we should find efficient ways to reduce the effect of noise when making decisions. In this article we evaluate some simple solutions when making defense decisions and try to find a solution based on message-passing to coordinating agents in defense situations. Our experimental results showed that in each situation one of the agents has a better view than others, so that agent can send messages to the others and provide needed information for doing defense behavior(ex: block behavior or clear ball behavior). Finally, we implement our solution based on Agent2D, version 3 and compare that with other solutions implemented in Cyrus2014 and Marlik2013 Soccer 2D simulation teams.
