Every year, EA makes minor changes to FIFA’s core gameplay. There’s usually enough to make your game change ever so slightly, but this year in my opinion the core gameplay feels more different than in previous years. Every thing is slower, defending is much more tactical, yet attackers and passes are more dangerous than ever.
Here are some tips that you can use in order to try and get a jump on your opponents.
KEEP THE BALL MOVING
As I’ve already mentioned, it’s much harder to break the defence down in FIFA 18. Turnovers are also a lot more costly as pulling off a defensive move requires much more anticipating and better timing. Passing is much more effective in FIFA 18 than in previous years. Even if there isn’t a visible way forward, keep moving the ball from side to side and backwards until something opens up. It’s much better than going forward and losing the ball.
