With FIFA changing all the time, it can often be difficult to find the winning formula. Buying new players, building new teams and constantly changing the way you play can be difficult if you don't know what you're doing.
However, there are a few things that stay consistent in FIFA. As a result, here are some things to consider when building your next FIFA Ultimate Team squad.
What are custom tactics in FIFA?
FIFA custom tactics allow you as the player to create certain game plans for each stage of a FIFA match. For example, you can alter the way your players defend in certain situation, or how they attack in others.
In addition to custom tactics, you should also consider individual player instructions which will allow you to completely change the behaviour of your players.
In FIFA 19, you can edit each individual game plan before going into a game. Once in a game, you can simply set which game plan you want to use by pressing left or right on the DPAD. Once you've chosen your select game plan, the tactics you set up earlier will take effect in the game.
Choosing your playstyle
When setting up a tactic, you'll first need to decide how you want to play. Get a piece of paper and a pen and write down all the things you're good at in FIFA 19. For example, are you good at counter attacking? Are you good at keeping hold of the ball? Are you good at using slower players? All of these are questions you should be asking yourself.
Once you've wrote down everything you're good at, it's time to take a look at the things you're not so good at.
As soon as you've wrote a few things down, it's time to start making your tactic. Your tactic should highlight all of the areas that you're good at. For example, if you like to use fast players, a counter attacking tactic may suit your playstyle more so than if you were to use a tactic which focussed more so on possession based football.
It's also important to have a plan B as well. You're more than welcome to just rely on the one play style, but typically if you're struggling in a game, it's a good idea to have an alternate tactic that you can switch to should you start to struggle. For example, if you've played the majority of the game counter attacking and it hasn't worked, it may be worth changing up to a more attacking tactic.
Make sure to adjust your tactics to facilitate certain players in your team as well. Just because you like to play a certain way doesn't necessarily mean that you have the players to succeed using this tactic. If you like to counter attack, you won't find much success doing so with wingers who aren't that agile or quick.
Understanding custom tactics
Custom tactics are broken down into two sections, defence and offense. Your defensive style should be something that you take a look at first, pick the one that sounds most appealing. But make sure to understand that with every selection you make, there will be their benefits and drawbacks. For example, if you select constant pressure, your players will make more of an effort to go for the ball, however, if they don't have high stamina, they will tire very quickly.
Next is your width and depth, this dictates how your players line up when you're out of position, the lower the depth, the further back your players will be. The lower or higher the width, will determine how spread apart your players are.
Moving into offense, you'll need to choose an offensive style, decide how wide you want your players to be when going forward and choose how many players make runs into the box. Then you have to decide how your players line up when you have a set piece also.
To conclude, custom tactics are an intricate part of FIFA 19, and choosing the right one can be the difference between winning or losing. However, the better players in your squad, the more likely you are to succeed. Make sure to check our site for the cheapest FIFA 20 coins.
