FIFA 20 Guide To Becoming A Better Player
A new FIFA title leads to tons of gameplay changes. And if you’re someone who’s having a hard time adapting to them, do not worry. With a host of tips and tricks, we can guarantee you’ll get better in no time. We’re focusing on the areas of passing, dribbling, defending and finishing in the pursuit of getting you better at the game.
Passing is really more important than ever in FIFA now. Passes are getting intercepted left and right and players are now finding it hard to pass around midfield. From a personal point of view, I think it’s much safer to stick to short passes. Lobbed short passes are super overpowered and barely go to the feet of the opposition. Same case for lobbed through passes. You might want to try your hand at quick short passes in the final third. Another important point to consider is that you need to make sure you’re facing towards the player you will pass to. You may also try a flair pass at tight angles but those usually give away possession. If you have no way out, shield and just keep hold of the ball. Nobody’s really forcing you to pass unless you want to.
There are so many (positive) changes to dribbling this time around. A pace nerf means players will now have to resort to proper dribbling to make their way into the final opposition’s defense. First of all, make sure all your attacking players are at least moderately good at dribbling. High figures in terms of agility and balance really help the cause. Incorporate the new strafe dribbling in your playing style, it is a simple trick that is so effective. Often you’ll find the other team making space for you by themselves while you’re strafe dribbling around for a while. It just works on its own. If you’re thinking of skill moves, focus on learning and properly executing only a few in-game rather than trying to learn every skill move possible. It just doesn’t work like that. Quality is definitely better than quantity in this case. But a general suggestion would to learn any skill move that results in a quick change of direction such as fake shot and la croqueta.
Yes we know, AI defending is probably making you rage every match. But there are ways to reduce at least some of the damage. I guess the best trick you can make use of this time around is the contain and secondary contain. Don’t go in charging as it might end up in conceding a goal. Be patient, contain and wait for the opposition to let out a weak pass. Investing in a proper defense is more fruitful than ever. Get defenders that have 74+ pace, trust me it helps. In terms of defensive tactics, drop back with depth set at one bar really seems to be a tactic that pays off.
Personally speaking, this is where I have (still am) suffered the most. You really can’t put a finger on what’s up with finishing in this title. Missing sitters after sitters seem to be the deal with just about every match. But as always, you can lessen some of the damage. Near post finishing, particularly with power seems to pay off the most. Far post finishing just doesn’t seem to work at all no matter who you shoot with. Long shots from outside the box also seem to do wonders. Due to such unpredictable finishing, it is best that you practice penalties and free kicks as much as you can to score from them. Feel free to visit the practice arena and practice there.
Above all, make sure you’re using the right formation and tactics with your given team. I personally cannot emphasize enough how important this is. Feel free to experiment around with formations and player instructions. There are loads of options to choose from so make the best use of it.
