Best Gameplay Tips for FIFA 15

Play for the result

If you want to win, then you’ve got to concentrate 100%. Play for the result and not for the entertainment. Leave excessive dribbling aside, avoid risky passes and keep a good formation.

Skill Moves

Use skill moves moderately. They should only be used when really needed and while you’re in the opponent’s field, in one on one situations. Executing this type of movement near the opponent’s area could also be useful, because many defenders tend to precipitate themselves and provoke potential free kicks or even penalties.

Goal Kicks

One of the easiest ways you have to identify your opponent’s level is by noticing how they execute goal kicks. People with minimum experience know they should never take risks in these situations. Never pass the ball to your centre backs. Pass to the full-backs but only if you see there is no one pressuring. If by any chance someone gives you a hard time after the touch, immediately pass the ball back to your keeper.

All out attack

No, we’re not talking about the different mentalities you can impose on different moments of the match. We’re talking about the possibility of having your goalkeeper send his team mates out the attack. If you’re running out of time while losing and your goalkeeper has the ball, try pressing RB/R1 and then see what happens.

1 on 1 with the goalkeeper

In one on one situations with your opponent’s goalkeeper, your best option is to try and get past him. If you’re not secure enough for that, choose striking with a finesse.

Counter attack well

While in a real goal situation, with only the goalkeeper ahead, always verify if you have a teammate beside you in a better position to score.

It’s been proved that the most efficient playing system on FIFA 15, when it comes to passing, is triangulation. Practice so you can reach the opponent’s goal more often.

Get your timing right

When you’re controlling a player, the rest of team are moving by themselves. Stay alert for these movements because once one of the players indicates he’s getting into a good position you should pass him the ball. It’s all about timing.

Take the shortest path towards the goal

When you’re isolated going in direction of the opponent’s goal, be the quickest possible and avoid taking the longest path. Going straight to the goal is your best option because this way you won’t lose speed or eventually get caught by the opponent.

Don’t jockey all the time

We said here that jockeying is an extremely useful way you have for defending. However, it’s important to mention that this technique shouldn’t be applied to players that run like hell. In these situations it’s best to take a step back and occupy the space to where the player might be running into, therefore decreasing their success rate. Jockeying is particularly efficient when you have two defenders up against the man with the ball.

  1. Hello Rodrigo,
    I’ve started playing Career mode, so I have a question for you.
    I accepted to manage Sweden but apart from 2 EC (European Championship) qualifiers and a couple of intl friendlies, there’s nothing more regarding Sweden the who,e season. Do I carry on with the next season to manage Sweden to play for the World Cup and EC or is that it?
    Your help and advice is much appreciated as always.

      Go to the market, buy it and apply it: transfer market – consumables – training

  2. I have 2 objective left. “Tune in” and ” the world is your”, any idea how to achieve them?

  3. What does RB/R1 do? Send your players forward? I thought it was LB/L1 that does that

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      I mean passing the ball through three players like drawing a triangle. If I wasn’t clear enough, please ask me again.

  4. Hi Rodrigo
    TOTY is coming un 1 week!
    Can you tell me when is the best time to buy players? Monday? Or when the strikers come out?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It isn’t easy to know, but my experience says that Monday, Friday to Sunday will be the best days to buy.

  5. Any advice on using the D-Pad in game options?

    I have only really used it to change attacking levels.

    I only realised recently I can make wingers change sides with it etc.

    Is it best to select Team Pressing for the whole match? (And if you select an option is it just for a limited time?)

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It depends of your play style.
      I usually spend the first minutes to see how the opponent plays. If he likes throw balls and select ‘off side trap’. If I see he has problems to control the ball, I select ‘team pressing’, etc…
