FIFA 23 Beginners Guide: Tips And Tricks To Level Up Your Skills | Digital Trends Spanish

FIFA 23 is the latest installment in the long-running FIFA series (which will soon come to an end), and comes with a ton of new features to give you an edge on game day. Whether you’re new to the series, or have just been away for a while, there’s a lot to learn.

That’s where our beginner’s guide to FIFA 23. We’ve dug deep into the game and found the best tips for new and old features. All of them will help you get acquainted with FIFA 23 and take your skills from amateur level to world class in no time.

Fun-Sized FUT Moments

FIFA Ultimate Team, or FUT for short, is one of the most popular modes in all FIFA games. FUT allows you to collect player cards, build your dream team and use it to compete for trophies against other FIFA players.

This year, EA has added a new angle to Ultimate Team called FUT Moments, each of which is a bite-sized single-player stage that drops you in the middle of the action and tasks you with completing a challenge. .

For example, there are FUT MOMENTS that allow you to recreate key moments in the careers of particular superstars. There are themed challenges (scoring a game-winner with two minutes remaining, for example) and more extravagant scenarios, such as scoring with the goalie.

Because they are short and sweet, FUT Moments are a great way to learn about Ultimate Team and FIFA 23 generally leveling up your skills and having a bit of fun too. If you’re new to FUT, they might be a good place to start.

Tool in the Training Center

This year, EA has added a new Training Center to help beginners hone their skills in the game. This mode is divided into chapters, each giving you objectives to accomplish that become more advanced and challenging as you progress.

For example, the tasks in your first game are to complete 15 rushing passes, attempt three good shots, and complete two standing tackles. During the match, you can see what tasks are left to complete so you know how you’re doing.

After each game, you will receive personalized feedback on how you can improve based on your performance. The idea is that you get a complete picture of how you are playing, rather than just whether you achieved pre-defined goals.

That makes the Training Center a good way to learn the ropes in match situations rather than trying to hone your skills on the training pitch. When it comes to more serious matches, you’ll know what to do.

FUT chemistry is very different

One of the key elements of FUT has always been chemistry. This year, chemistry has seen its biggest overhaul since Ultimate Team was introduced, so you’ll need to learn what’s new if you intend to play a lot of FUT.

In FIFA 23, team chemistry no longer exists. Instead, now you just need to think about the chemistry of each individual player. Players can earn up to three Chemistry Points if there are other players on the team from the same region or nation, the same division, and the same club.

That new focus on individual chemistry means there are no more chemical lines between players. On top of that, bad chemistry no longer reduces a player’s attributes, and each player will start each game with their base abilities intact.

There are also some other chemistry changes coming this year, like players not losing chemistry if they play out of position. The idea is to make squad building easier and lead to more varied squads, giving you more license to experiment. So, if you’ve often felt suffocated by FUT’s chemistry system, now is the time to jump back in and give it another go.

The women’s leagues are here

Women’s soccer has seen a huge rise in popularity in recent years, and FIFA 23 is reflecting that with the most extensive set of women’s teams yet.

This year, you’ll be able to play in England’s FA Women’s Super League and France’s Division 1 Féminine, all featuring fully licensed teams and players. You can also participate in international women’s tournaments and friendly matches.

Unfortunately, it’s not a full career mode, missing transfers, youth academies and a few other features of the men’s career mode, but it’s the biggest update to the women’s game in FIFA for several years and adds a new dimension to the women’s game. It’s a great opportunity to lead one of your favorite teams to glory.

Power shots can be deadly, if done right

Over the years, EA has made various adjustments to the way shooting works in its FIFA games. In FIFA 23there is a new shooting mechanic called power shots that can be a deadly weapon in your arsenal.

These shots give you extra power and accuracy when shooting at a goal. The drawback is that they take longer to execute and also require a bit more precision when aiming. However, if you can master them, they could make a difference.

Because they’re a new feature, it’s a good idea to learn how to use them properly if you’re just starting out. You may find that your opponents are not expecting them, giving you an extra edge on the attack.

Focus on set pieces

In a deep dive in the new features FIFA 23, EA explained that it wanted to make free kicks, corners, and penalties feel more intuitive and more like their real-life counterparts. To do that, dead ball situations have had a major overhaul this year.

When taking a free kick, you can now adjust your shot angle with the left stick. The right stick, meanwhile, controls a small grid behind the ball that determines the curl, style, and elevation of your shot. There is also a trajectory line that shows where the ball will go for its first few yards.

When it comes to penalties, there is a new ring that expands and shrinks around the ball before kicking it. This is your penalty taker’s composure ring – time the shot correctly and you’ll be able to shoot with more power and accuracy, making saving harder.

That means these situations can play out differently than previous FIFA games, so it’s worth taking the time to hone your technique in each scenario.

Stick to the game plan

When you’re new to FIFA, it can seem a bit overwhelming trying to change your tactical setup in the middle of a game. But there’s no need to get bogged down in positions, player roles, and transition plays every time. Instead, use game plans.

In its simplest form, a game plan defines the way your team plays. Do you want to go ultra-attacking and pile everyone forward in an attempt to score? Or are you trying to close out the game and hold on to a hard-fought lead? In each of these situations and more, a game plan is what you need.

You can define your game plans from the Team Management screen. Simply choose a pre-made example and adjust it to your needs. They work in Ultimate Team, career mode, and many other places.

The best part about Game Plans is how quickly they can be activated. During a game, simply press Left either Right on your controller’s directional pad to cycle through them. You’ll see the name of the currently selected game plan appear on your screen, and your team will instantly adapt to fulfill their new roles. That makes them great time savers in clutch situations.
