Are you looking for some tips and tricks to beat your opponents in FIFA 13? Here are some guides and tutorials for you to follow in FIFA 13 to become a pro player:
Form the Best Team
Get the best and high-ranked players of your squad in your starting eleven. Choose the second tops for the bench. Don’t forget that FIFA 13 updates its squad database regularly from EA online database, so you need to change your starting line-up based on the latest updates. Sometimes the best players can be found in your reserve list due to real world update – as they might be injured in the real world but you can definitely use them in your FIFA 13 squad. So, check your reserved players as well after any update.
Strikers are very important. Select the ones with high skills. Tall strikers are good for scoring on crossing. Also, get the ones that have good shooting skills, in FIFA 13 shots from outside or inside the penalty box have high chance to touch the back of the net. This could be also useful if you have the attacking midfielders with good shooting skills. Try to have a combination of good headers and good shooters in your forward.
Choose the best formation that you are more comfortable with. Usually default formations of the big teams are good by default, but feel free to change your formation as many times as you want even during the game. Suggested formation is 4-3-1-2, but it completely depends on you.
Do not stick with only a method of scoring. Try to have more than five or six ways to score goals. Learn how to score a goal from a very random situation, be prepared to turn any chance to a goal scoring opportunity. Professional players can read your strategy and block your scoring tactics and strategies. You should always surprise them by coming up with a new scoring tactic.
Work on Set-pieces
Learn how to score from a free-kick directly and indirectly. A Corner kick is really a good chance to score in FIFA 13. Be prepared to score even when your corners are blocked as long as you have the ball inside the box.
Be good at dribbling, go to FIFA 13 Skills Games mode and play the interactive tutorials for dribbling. Do not forget that you don’t need to always sprint (to hold R2) when you are on the ball or even off the ball.
Things to Remember …
On crossing and corners kicks, you don’t need to hold R2 (sprint button) to do a header or to kick the ball to the goal.
Don’t send the ball too far on goal kicks, try to (long) pass the ball to your midfielders or defenders in the middle of your half using the long pass button – preferably on the sides.
No need to switch to every possible player to catch the ball for defending. Switch only to one player and be more concentrated on that one to block the free players of the attacking team that have the chance to receive the ball. Don’t worry, your teammates are controlled by CPU automatically until they catch the ball, sometimes they do a better job than you do. You can also use the contain button (R1) to control them – to send them to the attacking player.
