Rannerz FIFA Tips

// 27 Nov 2017

Ever wondered how to become a pro at EA SPORTS FIFA 18? dundalkfc.com asked Dundalk FC eSports player Conran “Rannerz” Tobin, for his top tips and tricks to help improve your game.

What is the best way to improve or become a pro at playing FIFA?

For this the old saying holds through, practice makes perfect. If you want even a chance on turning pro you will have to put in the hours as well as taking the time to look back at the goals you concede and see how you may have prevented them.

What are the best stats to look out for (defenders)?                                        

In my defenders I look for at 3 main stats, pace, strength and of course defence.

What are the best stats to look out for (midfielders)?                                     

In my defensive midfielders I look for 70+ pace as well as high interceptions. My attacking midfielders should have 75+ pace with high agility and passing.

What are the best stats to look out for (strikers)?                                            

With strikers I either go for pace and finishing or with a tall striker I go for good heading and strength to hold up the ball if needed.

What is the best style of play?                                   

It’s all personal preference, if you can play through your opponent with quick passes then opt for that, if not try out a more possession style play to try drag your opponent out of position.

What does your FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) squad look like?                                                                 

My current FUT Squad is: (4-2-3-1) David De Gea; Kyle Walker, 89 Laurent Blanc, 87 Marcel Desailly, Jordi Alba; 88 Patrick Vieira, 90 Ruud Gullit, IF Leon Goretzka, 90 Alessandro Del Piero, Gareth Bale; Cristiano Ronaldo.

What are the best tips on attacking?                                     

Try to not give up possession easily and don’t be afraid to take shots from distance if you can’t break down your opponent.

What are the best tips on defending?                                    

The best tip for defending is don’t be too aggressive with your tackles leaving you exposed at the back.

What are the top tips for taking free kicks?                                     

I’ve found that in FIFA 18 well worked free kick routines have a greater impact than directly going for goal.

What are the top tips for taking penalties?                                     

The best way to improve taking penalties is by using the skill games to get comfortable at taking penalties so you don’t get nervous when taking them in an actual game.
