June 2014

You are currently browsing the monthly archive for June 2014.

High pressure is a very effective tactic both in real life and in the game when it’s used well, and over the years of playing FIFA I’ve lost many matches to opponents that were excellent at applying lots of pressure whenever I had the ball.

I felt rushed against very good pressers and would often end up either forcing a forward pass that wasn’t really on or trying an aimless hit-and-hope long ball, Fifa Coins both of which almost always resulted in me losing possession. Constantly giving the ball away meant facing wave after wave of counter-attacks from my opponents, so it was difficult for me to get results.

But as the games went on I eventually worked out that the key to countering high pressure in FIFA was to keep the ball moving around the pitch while looking out for gaps opening up in my opponents’ teams, which would usually happen after fairly short periods of time because they were pressing the ball so aggressively and wandering out of position.

There are of course still plenty of times now when I get caught out by high pressure players, usually because I’ve made a poor decision, hit a bad pass or taken too long on the ball. But generally speaking I do a lot better against this kind of tactic than I used to, so in this week’s Backpage we’re going to look at some of the things that help me to keep the ball moving, avoid tackles, open up space and create better chances in attack.

If you’ve been struggling to counter high pressure players then I Fifa 14 Coins recommend giving these a go, as the tips here have certainly helped my game.

January is an exciting time for football fans, with most of the European leagues returning from winter breaks and the drama of the panic-buy strewn transfer window (as long as your club aren’t spending the winter selling your best players.)

The first month of the year also brings Buy Fifa Coins with it excitement for fans of virtual football, specifically those who participate in one of the most addictive games known to man, FIFA Ultimate Team. This is because it is the time when the Ultimate Team world is shaken up by the mid-season upgrading of players.

Although the weekly release of upgraded in-form player cards helps to keep the game fresh and representative of real football, the extortionate pricing of these cards usually puts them beyond the reach of the average Ultimate Team aficionado, but the update offers something more accessible.

Last year, stars such as Radamel Falcao and Stephan El Shaarawy received upgrades at this stage of the season, and hopefully EA Sports are going to offer the same treatment to some of this year’s biggest stars. With that in mind, here are 5 of my suggestions for who deserves similar treatment this time Buy Fifa 14 Coins around…

If you caught last week’s Backpage then you’ll know we covered how you can use your goalkeeper to help you win more games. Since then I’ve given my keeper one more job… scoring goals.

That’s because I’ve been playing loads of Seasons mode as Brazilian club Sao Paulo, whose goalkeeper also happens to be their best free-kick taker. They’re Fifa 14 Coins for sale loads of fun to use but there are many more reasons to pick them than just the novelty factor of bagging a goal or two with your stopper; I honestly think Sao Paulo are one of the best teams in the game at their current star level and in this week’s Backpage we’re going to look at why.

Sao Paulo were a four star club when I first started playing as them in FIFA 14 and I instantly had that feeling you get when you know you’re using a top team, thanks mostly to their well-balanced midfield and quick, tricky attacking players. Recently, following the departure of attacking midfielder Jadson – who wasn’t in my starting line-up anyway – they dropped down to 3.5 stars and it really is party time for them against the competition at that level.

STRENGTHS, WEAKNESSES & PLAYING STYLE
Sao Paulo share similarities with FC Shakhtar in that they’ve got lots of fast, creative midfielders and forwards who are excellent on the ball, but the main differences for me are that the Brazilian club are a bit more solid defensively and have players that can work really well in a 4-2-3-1(2), which is easily my favourite formation in the game now.??Sorry to go all linky on you this week but here’s more on why I think that formation is so good:
The centre-backs are quick, strong and good in the air; the full-backs can attack and defend effectively; the two holding midfielders compliment each other superbly; the wide players are full of pace and tricks and the CAM works well as a second striker to the lone frontman – former Porto and Sevilla goal machine Luis Fabiano. Oh and the keeper can score free-kicks. Did I mention that already???We’ll take a more detailed look at each position in a moment, but basically Sao Paulo are going to suit you if you like to use a similar formation and play varied, attacking football with plenty of movement, loads of passing and exciting dribbles like I do. I’ve even had quite a lot of success with crosses when using them, so they could be a good fit if you like to play that way, too.

They probably won’t suit if you’re a counter-attacking player or if you tend to look for direct passes and through balls from deep often, as I don’t think you’ll get the best from their players or the 4-2-3-1(2) formation that way.??Sao Paulo don’t have many weaknesses, but stamina levels can sometimes be a problem. It’s very tempting to sprint and dribble a lot with this team – especially with the wingers – so the players do get very tired towards the end of games. It’s worth keeping that in mind and trying to use bursts of pace rather than constant sprints when you play with this club.

THE STARTING XI?Using the 4-2-3-1(2)
my strongest line-up is… ??GK?Rogerio Ceni * 75 OVR?Ceni would be my number one in this team even if he wasn’t the best free-kick taker in the squad, as he’s the top keeper overall anyway. As you’d expect from a GK that’s so good with his feet, his kicking is exceptional and that can prove very useful – as we talked about last week. His Handling and Reflexes stats aren’t especially high but that doesn’t seem to stop him making important saves, which he does regularly for me. ??RB?Douglas * 68 OVR I think Luis Ricardo is a better right back overall, but I move him into the centre to give me some much-needed pace there, so Douglas is my starting right-back. His main attribute is his speed, but he’s also a capable crosser and can hit a decent shot, so I often use him to support wide attacks. He’s 5ft 7in and has a Strength rating of 51, so I try to avoid physical or aerial battles with him when possible.

RCB?Luis Ricardo * 74 OVR

Antonio Carlos starts at centre-back for Sao Paulo by default, but he’s a little too slow for my liking so as I mentioned above I shift Luis Ricardo across to make use of his greater speed. Moving a full-back into the centre of defence is something I’ll only do if the player has the height and power to cope with the physical demands of the role, and fortunately Ricardo has both. The bad news is that Buy Fifa 14 Coins by playing him as a CB I lose his Crossing ability, which is very good for this level, but I feel the positives of having Ricardo next to Caio definitely outweigh the negatives

We sit down with FIFA producer Matt Prior to discuss the merits of EA Sports releasing a second football game in six months.

With every annual release of EA’s Fifa Coins series there’s one obvious, but legitimate, question that is kicked into play more than any other: ‘do we need another one of these?’ With gameplay and game mode alterations that only the most hardened of subscribers ever recognise, is EA justified in releasing tweaked editions of what is essentially the same game every annum?

Over the next few months, in the run-up to the release of 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, that question takes on greater meaning. Released worldwide this April, this officially licensed digital recreation of July’s World Cup will become the second full-price FIFA title to launch in six and half months, following FIFA 14′s release in September last year.

To try and understand the value for the consumer in having so many FIFA titles available in such a short amount of time, we sat down with 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil producer Matt Prior to get his take on what makes his upcoming game worthwhile.

“From a gameplay standpoint, we’re the best game out there when we launch because we’ve taken FIFA but made improvements to it. We’re really a standard Cheap Fifa Coins plus a whole lot more development on top, so if you want the ‘cutting edge’ game then that’s what this is.”

Seeing as World Cup Brazil’s release is being limited to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it’s difficult not to take the ‘cutting edge’ claim without a pinch of salt. Getting first-hand experience of the game in action is a chance for me to be impressed by the new player animations (mainly concerned with fanciful passes and flicks) and the ability to use another player’s back as a springboard to jump higher during headers, but I leave without definite assurance that the physics model here is superior to that used in next-gen editions of FIFA 14.

“We want returning FIFA players to really have a different experience from what they’re used to.”

Little doubt exists that World Cup Brazil represents the pinnacle of World Cup-specific games so far, however, and Prior is keen to promote exactly that as a key reason for FIFA 14 owners to invest in the series again so soon after the series’ latest release.

Before learning some tips, it’s important to know the basics of penalties in FIFA 14. There are three basic steps to taking a penalty. The first thing you must do is get the timing right on the ‘composure bar’. This bar will affect your player’s ability to take an accurate kick. Your aim is to stop the white line in the middle (the greenest section). Landing in the red zones will cause him to fall over and sky the ball horrifically high and wide, bringing shame to you and your family. On the next-gen versions of Buy Fifa 14 Coins the game, the white bar moves a little faster, so take your time.

Next is the power meter, which will begin to build up after you press the shoot button to stop the composure bar. While adding power, use the left stick to aim, the further left or right you move, the faster the invisible cursor will move, making it increasingly difficult to place a shot in the corners. Players with higher penalty stats will have a larger green area in the composure bar, and moving the cursor around the goal will be less sensitive.

Now that you understand the basics, let’s take a look at the different ways players can kick the ball.

Stutter stepping is especially redundant against AI goalkeepers. You will not trick robots. Simply don’t bother using the stutter step tactic as it unnecessarily over-complicates things, and makes your kick more inaccurate. After the stutter, the placement cursor will widen (though you can’t see it, a quick view in practice mode will show you the difference), even more reason to not bother.

The Panenka is the chip straight down the middle of the goal. It’s a risky move, but against human opponents, can be a great way to showboat your superiority. Against AI, it isn’t worth the risk, especially as ‘keepers can save these shots with their trailing feet or hands after a dive.

By holding RB/R1 during your shot, the kick-taker will strike the ball with his instep, allowing for greater accuracy and swerve on the ball, but less power. Using the placed shot is more useful when striking the ball to the same side as your player’s kicking foot. The reason for this is the slight movement on the ball will help take it back into the corner and keep it away from the goalie. If you imagine a right footed player taking a penalty, a placed shot will cause right-to-left swing, making it start wider than its eventual destination, making it harder to save. Of course, with penalties, there isn’t much time for the ball to move as drastically as a free kick, but the ball does move a small amount.

Now that we’ve covered the basics of penalties, here are some general tips to follow to help make sure the ball ends up in the back of the net and not the hands of goalkeepers.

Placing a decent amount of power on a penalty helps take the goalie out of the equation. Putting at least two bars on every shot will help increase your success ratio even when the ‘keeper dives the right way.

If you’re using a forward, or one of the best players in the game, you can afford to slide the power to the early red-levels. This means that it will take an excellent save to stop the shot. If you decide to fire a rocket at the goal, try aiming straight down the middle, but high into the roof of the net. Even if the goalie doesn’t move, unless (in the case of human opponents) they press up on the analogue sticks, or the AI makes a concerted effort to move towards the ball, they will simply flap at the shot and be unable to prevent the goal due to its power.

Aiming high makes the shot more difficult to save. Fifa 14 Coins  You don’t always have to be in the very corners of the goal to score, the power means that the ball will already be in the back of the net before the ‘keeper dives across, and won’t be able to get a lucky touch with his legs either.

Against human opponents

When playing against human opponents, the controls make it so that a player’s only options (as the goalkeeper) are to either dive all the way right or left, or stand still in the middle of the goal. As the player, you should be aiming for a particular area of the goal that human goalkeepers can very rarely reach, the 25% and 75% marks of the goal, and hit close to the roof of the net. This means that players will either dive the wrong way, or dive straight past the ball and miss it completely.

Alternatively, you can use the previous tactic of shooting down the middle, into the roof of the net. In a penalty shoot-out, it’s important to vary up your shots, don’t always stick to the same place. If you win a penalty during play, don’t use the Panenka, as it is a frequently used tactic in multiplayer. Don’t waste the opportunity, place the shot and put as much power as possible behind it.

It is being reported this week that a mother in the UK opened her credit card statement to find £4,000 (US$6,700) of transactions she hadn’t made. The culprit was soon tracked down to her son, who had spent the money playing his favorite game of the moment: soccer title FIFA 14.

You may be surprised to hear that the mother isn’t blaming her son for spending the money. Nope, the blame apparently falls firmly at the feet of EA.

It’s not completely clear how this 13-year-old kid managed to spend so much money in the game so quickly. What we do know is he kept purchasing Buy Fifa 14 Coins Player Packs, and managed to spend $1,700 on them in just one day. According to his mother, it was easy as just tapping a button to instantaneously spend the money over and over again. She said he had no understanding of what he was doing.

From the little I know about these Player Packs, the players they contain are random, so you are encouraged to keep buying them until you unlock the players you desire. On the EA forums gamers have admitted to easily spending upwards of $800 unlocking players.

While it can be easy to spend a lot of money on DLC and in-game purchases, I don’t think the blame in this case can be put on EA, at least not all of it. First of all, why did this kid have free access to his mother’s credit card? Allowing access to a credit card should also be accompanied by some education as to how to use, or in this case, not use the card.

Game Politics also makes a very good point: if you spend $1,700 in 24 hours on a credit card that’s not typically used for such high levels of spending, the credit card company will flag it. They will typically call the card holder to confirm the transactions are legitimate, or place a temporary hold on the card while they investigate. As far as we know, neither of those things happened, or if they did they haven’t been mentioned.

If you are going to give a child access to a credit card they need to be educated in its use. In this instance it doesn’t look like that happened. But at the same time, it seems wrong that Cheap Fifa Coins has setup FIFA 14 to allow for such high levels of content purchasing to occur. No game should ever cost that much, especially over the course of a few days.
