Refine Timed Finishing
There was a lot of debate when timed finishing made an appearance in FIFA 19 but this powerful feature is back in FIFA 20. The innovative skilled-based method for taking shots requires the player to press the shot button at exactly the right moment to score.
It is an awesome tool if you want those belters and headers to go into the net. You don’t have to try it on every shot and it works best on long-range shots or tricky headers.
It’s all about Possession
There’s no gainsaying the importance of possession on FIFA Series. It is more important in FIFA 20 because the pace isn’t the most important aspect of a player. There’s a whole new style of play that favors passing and retaining the ball. You have to take time with the ball especially with your midfield and avoid many through balls.
Perfect the New Strafe Dribbling Mechanic
FIFA 20 boasts over 10 million players and that’s because EA Sports has added amazing features to the series. Among these is the new strafe dribbling mechanic. There’s an added emphasis on one-on-one situations. With the new strafe dribbling mechanic, it’s now easier for attacking players to move smoothly around defenders.
For instance, you can hold down L1/LB to move around while keeping the ball in close control. At the same time, you can hold down R1/RB to which allows you to lock into the direction your player is facing. Tricks such as luring out defenders and pulling the ball backwards are now possible with this dribbling mechanic.
Avoid Sprinting with the Ball
Of course, you have seen Messi, Ronaldo and other powerful strikers sprint immediately they get the ball. However, this might not work on FIFA 20 and it is the easiest way to lose the ball.
You should take your finger off the sprint button immediately you get the ball and instead pass the ball around, biding your time, waiting for an opening. However, if you are one-on-one with the keeper, you have to take the chance by sprinting because the objective of the game is to score anyway.
Learn New Defense Moves
One of the biggest changes in FIFA 20 is that the AI will not automatically defend for you. This requires you to take control and outsmart your opponent to get the ball. This is not easy, but rather than holding down X/A, it’s time to start jockeying with L2/LT.
To perform a fast jockey, hold L2/LT and R2/RT together to maintain pressure and keep pace with fast attackers. Take your time, be patient, and jockey until you have an opportunity and then release L2/LT and R2/RT, the sprint button to challenge for the ball.
FIFA 20 Series is exciting, innovative and challenging. It is exactly what eSport football fans want and with these tips, you can even challenge for the FIFA eWorld Cup. Whether you want to join the professional eSport ranks or not, these tips will come handy to improve your game.
