FIFA 14 Tips: Squad Formations

 

 

FIFA 14 Tips: Squad Formations

 

 

Formations are a key part of any team and should be the first thing that is considered when starting a team.

 

 

A good starting point is the 4-5-1 as it provides a solid defensive line whilst also supporting your lone striker on the counter-attack. If you are finding it difficult with a single striker, then the 3-5-2 might be a better choice. The extra striker means you have a number of attacking options, though you will be more exposed at the back with just three defenders.

 

 

A formation that will cover all positions is the 4-1-2-1-2. There are two versions of this formation, one with wingers and one with central midfield players. Either way, you have several options going forward as it can be played out wide, through the centre or across the midfield. In defence, you have a solid back four with one supporting midfielder which makes it difficult for other teams to get through on a counter-attack.

 

 

For a player who can manage with a lone striker but needs numbers in both defence and midfield, the 4-2-3-1 ensures that you have numbers where it counts. The two CDMs will add numbers in both defence and midfield to crowd out the opponent. This works well with inverted wingers, which involves switching your LM and RM to support a lone striker. If the more unusual formations aren’t working, then going back to the classic 4-3-3 can give you the best opportunity to experiment with tactics. It works with a big striker who can win crosses or use the numbers to string a number of passes together.

Reviewing 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil: tweak ‘FIFA 14′ to a degree

 

Reviewing 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil: tweak ‘FIFA 14′ to a degreeIf I were a player of Canada’s national soccer team, not only had we have upped to standard of the World Cup in this month, but also had we taken the amazing golden trophy by playing in the legendary Estadio do Maracana of Rio de Janeiro.

 

That is what I got from 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil. In next month, the global sporting event’s official video game will drive the footie fans crazy.

 

 

World Cup Brazil is developed as a branch of EA canada’s yearly FIFA games, and it is actually an updated version of FIFA 14 in last fall with a fraction of tweaks in gameplay and a distinguish characteristic of World Cup-relish.

 

 

EA Canada’s stuff have built a kingdom of digital football pitch, and they are the kings or queens. Packed with an amazing number of management options, skill competitions, modes and more, these games are second to none of their category.

 

 

What makes things become viscous is the value proposition of the kind of this game. It comes out midway among yearly entries in series of the FIFA, and releases with a full-price. While in its gameplay, it does not provide anything that is extremely original or radical.

 

 

It does not mean that this is only a copy-and-paste of FIFA14 by dressing it up in yellow or green. With the passing and dribbling having been tweaked, the players can control the ball better. And setting teammates up for big movements is easier. Although only the franchise’s die-hard fans would notice more likely.

 

 

What is more significant is that the players have the opportunity to lead a team into the World Cup itself by qualifying games in this game, when the matches are taken place in digital reestablishment of diversified stadiums in Brazil. It infuses a great deal of the flavour and excitement about big events into the game, and it is well done.

 

 

It is my unheralded skill that is little known, when I was a soccer star. I set the game settings on the default difficulty and played it. In the first match, I was a captain and Canada won the game with 11goals. In our second match, Canada scored 15 goals. I can be called as a golden soccer god.

 

 

Generally, in order to provide a game of soccer that is more realistic and balanced, some players that are experienced want to tweak the difficulty and adjust the settings of the game. (unfortunately, in the system of creating a player, I chose Wang instead of Tilley as my role’s last name, because that Tilley could not be chosen. Apparently I am similar to a boy that is seven-year-old.)

 

 

Although a significant number of pageantry and several new tweaks have been brought into the FIFA 14 foundation by World Cup Brazil, recommending this game to those players that have’t known FIFA 14 is easier. It is more like a expansion pack that is overpriced to current owners. Meanwhile, what makes players disappointed is that EA would not do Xbox One or PlayStation 4 versions of the game, therefore, this is last-gen only.

 

 

But being here could be the next wonderful thing if you fail to make it to brazil. Therefore, if you are playing on the pitch, remember paying attention to Wang and dribble his balls.

EA SPORTS 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL TIPS – USING CORNER TACTICS

EA SPORTS 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL TIPS – USING CORNER TACTICS

Football journalist and FIFA fan Darren Cross reveals how he scores goals from corners using the new Set Piece Tactics in the World Cup game.

 

 

If you’ve played online against a guy who just kept trying to win corners in the World Cup game recently, chances are it was me.

 

 

Sorry about that.In my defence there’s a very good reason; I’ve been testing the new corner Set Piece Tactics so that I could share some tips with you on how to score more goals.

 

 

For those of you yet to try them, they’re four preset corners that quickly give you more control over the movement of your players and your focus of attack. Once selected, your players will move where you’ve asked them to – leaving you with the task of finding them with the cross. All four options – which you can also use from attacking free-kicks in wide positions – are a great alternative to setting up a number of custom corners or just aiming for an area of the goal and hoping for the best.

 

 

In this week’s Backpage we’re going to look at what each of them does and how you can increase your chances of scoring.

 

 

Run Near Post

 

 

I score more goals with this one than any of the other three corner types. When timed well it seems to be difficult for the defending player to prevent you from getting to the ball first, and the angle gives you the option to either head the ball towards the near post or try to loop it over the keeper and into the net.

 

 

When you win a corner, pressing down on the D-pad twice will always set up a near post run. The players making the runs for you will vary depending on your line-up, but with my 4231 it’s often the CAM who attacks the front post. The key with this one, and all of the corner Set Piece Tactics, is to watch the movement of your players as soon as you’ve selected the corner you want, then delay the cross until they’ve had a chance to take up good positions. If you choose a corner type then instantly whip the ball in there’s a good chance your players won’t be where you think they should.

 

 

With the Run Near Post option I line the ball up with the closest corner of the six yard box, wait for the movement then cross the ball in with no more than 1.5 bars of power. That’s a really quick press of the button, not much more than a tap, and it usually drops the ball right on the edge of the six yard box just as my CAM is attacking the space. If the keeper isn’t drawn towards the ball then I’ll usually try for a power header at the near post, but if he does creep forward then a looping header over the top of him can be really effective.

 

 

After a few attempts at this in the Arena – you can set up repeat corners from any side by pressing the back or select buttons then picking Practice Set Piece – you should quickly pick up the timings and be able to consistently hit dangerous near post corners. Just make sure you’ve got 11 v 11 selected when you set up the corner you want to work on, otherwise you won’t be practicing a game situation.

 

 

Run Far Post

 

 

This is a great one to go for early game, as opponents often seem to rush the goalkeeper out when they’re defending the first corner so a cross to the far post should leave them in no man’s land. Pressing down then up on the D-Pad orders far post runs and I’ve found that, when using the 4231, it’s my right midfielder who attacks the post most often.

 

 

It’s definitely worth knowing which of your players will be making the runs, and you can figure that out pretty quickly using the Team Management screen in the Customise menu and the Practice Set Piece feature in the Arena. First off, go to Customise then Settings and choose the Select Arena Player option. Pick a player from the team you’re planning to use most, then back out and head into the Arena.

 

 

Practice a few corners and take note of which players the ball drops to when using all four of them, then go back to Customise and pick Team Management. From there, select the team you were using and have a look at the positions of the players you crossed the ball to most often. Knowing who the ball is mostly likely to go to from each type of corner can obviously help you decide whether it’s worth it or not. For example, when I’m using 4231 I probably wouldn’t try a Run Far Post move if the RM wasn’t good in the air.

 

 

With Run Far Post selected I line the ball up with the far corner of the six yard box and cross with around three bars of power. If I’ve timed it right then my RM will have a good chance of getting to the ball first, and I can either go for goal or head the ball back across the area for someone else to attack.

 

 

Edge Of Box Run

 

 

I’ve found this to be the most difficult of the four corners to score from, but it’s also the most spectacular when it does work.

Selecting down on the D-pad then pressing it in the direction away from goal will trigger an Edge Of Box Run, and again the players making the runs will depend on your line-up. I used this one a lot with England in a 4231 and Leighton Baines – who was my left-back – would often be the player lurking just outside the area, which worked pretty well when I could get the space to unleash one of his left-foot rockets.

 

 

Once you’ve chosen this type of corner, line the ball up with the edge of the D and you should be able to see a team-mate in space. You’ll need to put around 2.5 bars of power on the cross to clear the first defender – anything less and he’ll either intercept or be too close to your player as the ball drops, making it very difficult for you to shoot. You can either go for the spectacular first time volley – I try this 99% of the time, can’t resist – or you can bring the ball down if you have the space. I’ve also scored some nice goals with this corner by playing a first-time pass to set up another nearby team-mate.

 

 

Crowd The Keeper

 

 

This can also be a useful corner against opponents who rush their keeper out to claim crosses, as it puts a number of your players in the six yard box, which should make it harder for the GK to get to the ball. But I mostly use it when I have a striker with good heading skills, as it’s the ST – again in a 4231 – who seems to attack the ball effectively.

 

 

Pressing down on the D-pad then towards the keeper will always select this type of corner, and I line the ball up with the edge of the six yard box and choose no more than two bars of power so that it lands pretty much in line with the penalty spot. That seems to give my ST the best chance of getting to the ball, usually as he’s running back out away from goal – great if you want to try a flying volley by holding LT or L2 while hitting shoot.

Big Moments of May 2014 Football Events

Big Moments of May 2014 Football Events

Follow us in fifa-coins.com you will never lose any exciting moments and events about what is happening in the real football! Enjoy yourselves all big moments of May 2014 here now.

 

 

Barclays Premier League

 
Let’s start from BPL. We were thinking Liverpool would get the league title but we were wrong. Actually, Manchester City won it. We wanted Liverpool to win the league because they deserved it more Man City. Man City got the title in 2011, and the fact that Liverpool has not won already 25 years.

 
After the draw with Sunderland, Liverpool had all chances to take the first place but their slip with Chelsea was unexpected. We think Brandon Rodgers has to change something in their game. They can easily attack and score goals but they are having difficulties to keep the game/score. With Man City and Crystal Palace, they faced that problem. They scored first in both games and they were playing and attacking very well until they thought they were done. In our opinions, the coach has some work to do with that. We want to congratulate to Man City and all fans of them for a good season and we hope that Arsenal and Liverpool will be on top candidates for the title next year.

 

 

FA CUP

 
Yes, we, Gooners, finally got a trophy. We got FA Cup, the first trophy since 2005. After being down by 2 goals, they could find the game and win the final game. We think Arsenal could have even won the title or at least be in the race if there were not injuries. Aaron Ramsey, Ozil, and Wilshere were injured on the second half of the season and they were very important in the field. We are not even mentioning Walcott, who we think is the most important player of team. We hope he will get soon and be back to form.

 

 

La Liga

 
Now, let’s take a look on La Liga. Even though Real Madrid is our second favourite team, we wanted Atletico Madrid to win La Liga. We haven’t seen such a tight race in La Liga and in BPL. The last game in La Liga was the decisive one and it was between two candidates of winners. Real Madrid did not play well at all in the last games and they were just trying to save their players for the UCL final. We are really happy that Atletico won the league title and we think Diego Simeone did a great job and he is one of the most talented coaches as of now. Probably, it was one of the worst seasons for Barcelona because they did not win any trophy but people sometimes don’t want to admit that any club cannot be in top forever. They were the best in the world for 5 years almost but now they are in a different stage. We think with Luis Enrique they will create a new style and get back to form.

 

 

UEFA Champions League

 
Now let’s get to the most important one: UEFA Champions League.

 

 

First Leg
We had a chance to watch great semi-finals. However, the first games were not that dramatic. Especially, Atletico vs Chelsea was very defensive on both sides and the game a little boring and the game ended 0-0. We think Mourinho did his bet on the second game in Stamford Bridge because they were almost unbeatable at home.

 

 

The other game of the first leg, was more interesting but again not with a lot of goals. Real Madrid won by 1-0 and the game was very tense. Bayern Munich tried to put all their effort to score an away goal but their tiki taka did not work so well. Ancelotti chose a right tactic with more defensive game and played on counter attack. They did their job well and went to the next game in Alienz Arena.

 

 

Second Leg
Jose Mourinho lost with his defensive tactics and Chelsea lost the game 1-3. We haven’t seen Chelsea being destroyed for a really long time. They were destroyed… Even though they scored first, they could not play well. It wasn’t because they were not in form, it was because Atletico did not let them. After watching the game twice, we saw some key moments. Many people think that the first goal of Atletico by Adrian was the most important and it destroyed the game. However, we have another opinion that Thibaut Courtois was the key man who destroyed Chelsea. After 1-1, Chelsea had several great chances to score but they could not because of Courtois. He won the game we think. He was brilliant.

 

 

In Alienz Arena we saw something that nobody expected. 0-5 Real Madrid won. That was just wow… Real just destroyed Pep Guardiola and Bayern Munich with their tiki taka game. Ramos was MOTM and he scored great headers. We think the game was very nice, unless you are a Bayern Fan.
