Lovers of the video game FIFA are just a few weeks away from getting their hands on the new installment from EA Sports, FIFA18. I have played on FIFA since the very first FIFA International Soccer game from the 90s and I am always ready to pick up the new edition before it is released. Whilst I would not consider myself a pro player, I am someone who has spent a great amount of time on the game, button bashing along with my buddy Conrad Gallagher and I have most definitely got game.
In light of the new FIFA coming soon, I wanted to talk a little about how to improve your abilities on FIFA so that you can take the world by storm when the new edition comes out. Without further ado then, here are some great ways to become a FIFA boss.
Varying The Competition
The first step to improving your FIFA abilities is to play against a wide range of competition. When you just play with your buddies, you start to learn their styles and adapt to it, something that won’t help you greatly when you play a stranger. I would recommend that on top of playing with your friends, you also play online against random strangers, and that you play as much as you can against the computer on World Class setting. This range of competition will really help your game and you will need new strategies and tactics for each opposition.
Forget The Skills
Skills look great when you are playing FIFA, assuming they come off of course but if you want to improve then you need to forget about them. Everyone who I play that tries skills, flicks and tricks, ends up on the losing side as there is only a very small group of people in the world who can actually pull off these skills with aplomb. Skills should come out when you are 5-0 up, not 1-3 down.
Master 3 Teams
I would recommend that you focus on just three teams when you are playing FIFA, learn about their strategies, their formations and their players and focus solely on these 3 clubs. The problem when you chop and change between many different teams is that you can never really learn one time inside out.
The skill games on FIFA are not just there as something which you can use to pass your time and in fact they can greatly help you to improve individual aspects of you game. You should aim to complete A level on every one of the skill games and you will soon see it pay off when game time comes. I would avoid the temptation to use the best players when completing the skill games and instead try with a weaker player. Doing this means that when you are in control of the top players during the game, you will find it very easy to show off your passing range, shooting ability and hard hitting defense.
