From the new arcade-style Volta mode to improved gameplay mechanics, there are plenty of reasons to pick up FIFA 23, the newest installment of EA’s beloved soccer franchise. But you should know a few things if you want to play better in the game, so we’ve put together a guide to help you. Here are some essential tips and tricks to make you a better FIFA 23 player on and off the pitch.
Improve Your Ball Control
It’s tempting to think that FIFA matches are won – or lost – by banging that ball into the back of the net but ask any seasoned FIFA fan, and they’ll tell you that the actions in the lead-up to that all-important ball control matter just as much. If you can’t control the ball, you won’t be able to do much else on the field. That’s why it’s important to always work on your ball control skills. The more you practice, the better you’ll get and the more likely you will succeed in other areas of the game.
Know The Comfortable Controller
To become a pro in FIFA 23, you should know the best controller settings available in the game. The controller settings must feel comfortable for you, and you must be happy with them. These settings also focus on improving your gameplay performance, so if they’re not as comfortable, just use them in the important matches if you can perform with them. Spend some time playing around with them and getting a feel for how they work. This will help you understand the game mechanics better and give you a better foundation to build on.
Improve Passing And Shooting
In FIFA 23, Scoring goals is what football is all about; to do that, your Passing And Shooting must be accurate. This can be done by practicing in the training mode or by playing against friends or family members. By improving your passing and shooting, you’ll be more likely to create scoring opportunities and convert them into goals.
Play Against The Best Players
Playing against better players can help you learn their techniques and strategies and improve your understanding of game mechanics. If you can find a balance of challenge and skill level, you’ll be able to improve your gameplay and maybe even come out victorious against those who initially seemed unbeatable.
Practice In Career Mode or Squad Battles
Squad Battles or Career Mode matches are actually the best way to get practice in. For Career Mode, you will get a more simulated football experience where you organize a club while playing without juiced-up players. This is much more realistic and less competitive. As for Squad Battles, while you’re still playing against an AI, the environment is pretty competitive, and you will be using your Ultimate Team to play. But if you play enough games, you can gain weekly rewards, including packs with players and many FIFA 23 Coins.
Set Your Formations and Tactics
No matter what mode you play in FIFA 23, Formations and Tactics are extremely important. Even if you’d rather keep things as casual as possible, we recommend setting up the four default tactics assigned to the left and right buttons on the d-pad. Keep Ultra Defence as an option for when you’re ahead and Ultra Attacking for an aggressive surge in the final 10 minutes of play if you lose.
Watch Real Life Football
This tip is more of a wild card as it requires going outside the virtual world to watch football. We’re mentioning this because real-life professional football will give you a sense of the game and how a football game progresses. Plus, this is a great time to start because the World Cup is currently happening, and watching these teams play will make you understand football better. It might not be exactly the same, but it will give you ideas for your FIFA approaches when it comes to defending and attacking.
