We’re now well into the football season, but at this time of year we’re not only thinking about our favourite teams’ successes, it’s also about upping our game in FIFA 17. That means to help you be a better player for FIFA 17. The below are tips.
1. Take advantage of the set-pieces
EA Sports has worked hard to revamp some of the set-pieces for FIFA 17 and you need take advantage of them. Keeping possession from throw-ins or goal kicks will allow you more opportunities to score goals. The same goes for making the proper judgement in terms of scoring free kicks both direct and indirect.
2. Bypass the keepers
There is a significant ramp in ability for the goalies in the game. It’s a complete change this year, as the keepers are suddenly really good. Power your shot up within the area and tap shoot again to execute a low powerful shot.
3. Know your formations
Whether you’re more familiar with the classic 4-4-2, feeling more Spurs or Arsenal with a 4-2-3-1 or even going a little more continental with 4-3-3, there are so many formations to take into consideration. But in order to be a FIFA pro, you’ll need to know all of them. You should be able to play at least 2-3 formations at a high level to consider yourself a top tier FIFA player.
4. Set a plan and think
Before you make a play for the goal, it’s best to think about your strategy. Once you’ve got it in your head, make sure not to deviate from it, especially when you’re on the defensive. When defending you need a plan or a system in order to overtake possession. You have multiple choices regarding how you defend, but make sure you commit to that style.
5. Focus on passing
Physical play has been given quite the overhaul in this year’s FIFA, from the way your teammates create space to the way you’ll jostle with the opposition for the ball. Quick one touch passing seems to be the way to go this year. Always try to play backwards before executing the killer ball to your ST’s as well for more success. Don’t be concerned about passing backwards before then pushing forwards.
6. Be patient and practice
Being able to stay calm and collected in all situations [is key], whether you are finishing a 1v1 or in dire need of a goal-line clearance from the defensive back line. If you want to improve your record over the long haul then your level of patience all over the pitch will be relevant, especially in higher divisions. And don’t forget to keep practicing.
FUT coins are used to acquire new player cards in FIFA 17 Ultimate Team. Of course, you can buy these coins with real money. Dedicated coin-selling sites are frowned upon by the community for a number of reasons, but you can purchase them directly in-game through FIFA Points – EA Sports term for what we call “money”. If you don’t want to buy coins, here are the best ways to help you earn FIFA 17 coins.
Gameplay: 5,000 – 8,000 coins per hour
Matches, coins boosts, tournaments and rewards. It may sound a little uninventive, but the best way to earn coins that doesn’t require you to pour hours into a virtual stock market is to simply play the game. There are caveats to that, of course, which make it much more efficient though:
1. First, you’ll want to apply your coin boosts acquired through the EA Football Club (press R3, head to the catalogue, unlock more through playing more and levelling up).
2. Then, head to the Online Leagues, and get cracking. Not only will you earn at least 600 coins for a win with the boost activated – which takes about fifteen minutes factoring in team management and annoying pause-spam from your defeated opponents – but you’ll also be working toward further rewards with Division promotion and victory. Rewards there get into the low thousands, meaning that, if you play well, you can pick up several thousand coins per hour.
3. If you back yourself, the FUT Draft mode is another gameplay-based option, but with a 15,000 coin entry fee, you’ll need to do sufficiently well to actually make the coins back (although you will pick up some packs along the way, too).
Transfer Market: 10,000+ coins per hour
Alright fine, if you insist on spending none of your time in Ultimate Team actually playing FIFA, here’s how you can earn decidedly more coins than any other method, free of charge, at a decent speed. Mass bidding is the best method specifically, here’s how to do it:
1. Find a player who’s in-demand, but cheap enough to buy en masse within your current budget. Our advice is Premier League or La Liga players, and those who play in a rarely- filled position like left or right back, or centre forward. You’re looking for a player whose demand exceeds the supply, but not to such an extent that you’re forking out several million on a Team of the Year Suárez.
2. Find their average buy-it-now price (it’s easier than eBay, just cycle through the card’s menus where it’s handily displayed for you) and calculate the amount you’d need to buy it for, if you were going to make a profit by selling it for the average buy-it-now price. How do you do that? Well, deduct the EA Tax (5 per cent, so multiply the buy-it-now average by 0.95 to find the after-tax price) and then aim for a couple of hundred coins below it.
3. Get bidding. Remember to keep in mind your profit margins – you’ll need to buy and then re-sell at a least a couple of hundred coins’ profit each time – and head to at least the second or third page of the Transfer Market list for that player. You want to be the first to bid on an item, as you’re essentially hoping to catch the ones which slip through the net. It means you’ll need to place a lot of bids – you’ll probably get one in ten at best – but the upside is you can place a wave of bids on players, play a few games or head out to work or school, and come back to your market to see what you won.
4. Sell sell sell. Assuming you got lucky and won a few cheapos, it’s time to immediately flip them on the market. If you’re staying with the game and want to re-invest your earnings right away, set the listing for one hour and the buy-it-now price as dead on the average. If you’re happy to wait, set it for four or more hours and a few hundred over the average (not too far over though, or you won’t sell it and will waste your time).
It’s general that the goal of playing FIFA 17 is to score. We’re here to give you some tips on the best formation to score goals with in FIFA 17. There are a wide variety of options, but the recommendations in this article should give you a good place to start.
If you’re looking to score goals we recommend the 4-3-3 Attack formation. The 4-3-3 Attack formation gives you great offensive potential without spreading your players too thin. You can work the ball up the midfield and watch your attackers so you know when they go on a run, allowing you to get the ball over to them. The goal with this formation is to spread out the defense enough that you can punch a hole right through to the goal.
It’s ideal to place your top three attackers on the top; your star player who has the best chance of scoring in the middle; the faster attackers with great passing ability on the wings so they can provide a good setup when you see a chance to break out; a central attacking midfielder (CAM) with a high work rate to be placed under the middle striker. Likewise, two center defensive midfielders (CDM) below the CAM. This placement allows you to move the ball away from midfield and push your offense accordingly. With your attackers spreading the defense out, this gives you a great chance to take advantage of any holes that open up in the defense.
With your formation setup and ready to go, all that’s left is to adjust the instructions tab accordingly. Place the left wing and right wing to Drift Wide/Get Behind, middle striker to stay central/get behind and both CDM to be set as Aggressive Interceptions. Set your tactics to possession and you’ll be ready to make the most of the goal-scoring formation.
Owing to an overhaul of the set piece system, a lot of gamers are having trouble with taking penalties in the new football game. Here are top tips for taking penalty in FIFA 17.
Take a longer run up
In the new game the run up is responsible for the amount of power and spin you can place on the ball for your penalties. We reckon the new penalty system is 30% run up, 30% placement, 30% power, (the extra 10% is luck), so sort out your run up. As well as changing the angle you approach the ball by moving the right analogue stick left and right, you can also move to take a longer run up by pulling the stick backwards. This is really important as a penalty taken with a longer run up generates more power.
Vary speed of your penalty run
Once you’ve given your player the ok to start running with the left stick, you can use the triggers to speed up or slow down how fast they approach the ball. If you want your player to slow down, hold LT/L2 for the duration of the run up. A quick tap of LT/L2 also makes your player stutter if you want to give the keeper the heebie-jeebies. If you want to speed up your penalty and increase the power with which you strike the ball, hold RT/R2 for your penalty.
You’re able to change the direction of where you want to put the pen with the left stick the entire time your player is doing their run up, but we humbly suggest you pick one direction and stick with it. Once you do, do not put that left stick further than 45 degrees in the direction you want. It is very easy to pull your penalty wide with FIFA 17, so if you want to send it left at right, don’t send it more than 45 degrees.
Bars for power
If you simply tap the shoot button on your penalties, you won’t generate enough power to send the ball home. For a decent low penalty aim for a little over 1 bar of power with the shoot button. Send your penalties top bins aim for just over 2 bars of power.
More practice will make you get used to the new system and how you can take a perfect penalty, just the way you want it.
EA Sports finally announcing that it will be available for download on PS4 and Xbox one on September 13. Gamers can get their hands on a copy of the game on September 29 but will be able to download a demo before now. And there are 12 playable clubs in FIFA 17 demo! So here is the question – how to download?
Here are two different but a little similar ways for PS4 and Xbox one.
Download on PS4
Connect your PS4 to the internet;
Select the “Store” icon (an image looks like a bag on the far left);
Search “FIFA 17”;
Download the free demo when option appears.
Download on Xbox One
The first two are the same steps with PS4. So here are two points to be stressed.
Search “FIFA 17 downloadable demo” and download;
Check the download progress in “My games and apps” section.
Do you expect to download? Utill its release, we just wait.
Most people that play FIFA 17 want to do their best. However, simply desiring to become a good player is not sufficient. Here are some tips and tricks to help you become a better FIFA 17 player.
Different levels of expertise require different levels of footwear. If you are just starting out, choose cleats made from synthetic materials or plastics. However, if you have been playing for a while, metal cleats will suit your skill level more.
Whenever you are forced to pass the FIFA 17 ball, you shouldn’t automatically assume that you will not be needed in the play. Instead, trail the FIFA Ultimate Teammate you passed the ball to in order to find the best position for you to assist him. Good players know when to pass the ball back.
Scan the field for an open player if you find yourself boxed in. This allows several seconds before the opposing FIFA Ultimate Team crosses the field, so the risk of losing control of the ball is lessened.
Make sure your FIFA Ultimate Team mates are on the same sheet of music as you and can anticipate your intentions. By knowing when you are about to act, they can make sure to be in the right place to respond. You might cross the ball in one direction for a couple of plays only to go left on the third try.
If you end up at midfield, keep an eye on what transpires on each end of the field. Remain prepared as a ball can come suddenly at you from your left or right, and you might then need to pass it quickly to the opposite side. You need to be aware of who is open and where defendants are all the time.
A competitive spirit is essential for making the cut on a good FIFA 17 FIFA Ultimate Team. Never give up, be willing to run across the entire field, aid your FIFA Ultimate Teammates, and generally show a good attitude. The coach will be impressed by both your willingness to work together and your mental toughness.
After FIFA 17 practice, spend a little time taking penalty kicks at the goal. This will train your mind to focus in on this penalty kick right after a foul. Learn a few kicks that you can do when you get a penalty kick and keep practicing your kicks until they go the way you want them to go each time.
Now that you know a bit more about being a better player, it is now time to test your skills. Take time to practice and show your fellow players what you’ve learned. If you practice together, the entire FIFA Ultimate Team will get better, and you may possibly win a game.
Read how to improve your defending skills on FIFA 17 with these tackling tips. If you learn these tackling basics, it will help you to keep more clean sheets and stop conceding as many goals.
Tackling on FIFA 17 is all about timing and patience. Even though it’s fun to smash the opposition with a crunching tackle and it’s tempting to try and win the ball back as soon as possible, the simple fact is, it’s better to be patient and pick your opportunities to tackle carefully. Defending is an art.
Never tackle from behind
With the new frostbite engine being more intelligent, it is far more likely that tackling from behind will be punished by refs. It is very rare that your player will be sent-off if you slide in from the front or the side of the player you are attempting to tackle.
Patience is key
As we have said, being patient is probably the most important factor in tackling. This will become more natural and something you won’t even think about after enough practise. When you are running next to a player, this is a good time to try win the ball, make sure you are level with the player or ideally just in front of him before attempting the tackle.
When the opposition is running with the ball, tackling from the front is the best way to win the ball without risking a caution or worse, a red. A great way to be patient is to jockey your opponent and then quickly let go of the corresponding button and then quickly launch into the tackle. Your opponent won’t be expecting this.
Don’t commit when 1v1 or 1v2
If you are in a 1v1 or worse, a 2v1 situtaion against you then the worst thing you can do is dive into a tackle. The best thing to do is jockey, close off the angle to the goal and try force the player to slow down or into a wide area so your team mates can get back to help you out. If you try a tackle here and miss your opponent is highly likely to take advantage and score.
Use strong tacklers as much as possible
Midfielders who aren’t renowned for their tackling skills are far less likely to be successful in the tackle than the likes of Kante or Matuidi so make sure you’re taking this into consideration. Even if you do win the ball using players like Ozil, their tackle won’t have enough force and the opposition will still probably pick up the ball.
Reward vs Risk
This is a question you need to ask yourself regularly. More often than not, the risk of sliding in and possibly missing the tackle is heavily outweighed by the fact that there is a fairly big chance you won’t be rewarded with possession of the ball. The reason we are more cautious of flying into tackles, especially on game modes such as FUT or when playing pro clubs, is because the VP players are quicker and obviously controlled by humans which means they are likely to be closer to each other so even if you do win the ball cleanly there is a high chance one of their other VP human controlled players will pick up the loose ball.
We hope you found these FIFA 17 defending/tackling tips useful and you can put them into practice and help to stop conceding as many goals on FIFA 17.
