How to Check your Ranking in FIFA 14

FIFA 14 Online Seasons is incredibly competitive, and you may want to know just how you stack up against all FIFA players in the world. It definitely adds a bit of excitement to the game when you can keep track of just where you stand in the worldwide rankings. If you're within the top 10,000, you're pretty good. If you're within the top 1,000, you're definitely one of the best.

FIFA 14 - Controls

Below is a table of all the game controls in FIFA 14 for the Xbox and Playstation. Starting in FIFA 12, EA decided not to include an informational packet with each copy of the game, so some players asked us to make our own version for reference.

When you've mastered basic controls, you may want to consider moving on to FIFA Encyclopedia's very own Supreme FIFA 14 Guide to learn how to use this knowledge to dominate your opponent!

FIFA 14 - Ultimate Team - Money Making

Important Note: Most of these methods are either bettered by or made obsolete by the advent of autobuyers and autobidders. To best compete with this, I would highly recommend you take a look at the FUT Millionaire Trading Center, the most complete and advanced Ultimate Team professional trading tools and methods hub in the world.

FIFA 14 - Defending

Defending in FIFA 14 is fairly similar to defending in FIFA 14, but there are definitely some new details to the system that would be helpful to know about if you expect to do well as a defender. Furthermore, it is even more important to be a good defender in FIFA 14 because bad defending is incredibly easy to exploit in this game. Without sound defensive knowledge, you may find yourself losing games solely because your opponent is able to rack up a LOT of goals.

FIFA 14 - Game Face

Game Face is a returning feature to the FIFA series as of FIFA 14. With Game Face, you can upload a front view of your face, or side view for added accuracy, and allow the computer to generate a face model for a FIFA player that looks just like you! You can then download this face on to your console where you can use it on your Virtual Pro. Although your game face will only show up to you in online Virtual Pro games, if you are in a Pro Club team, you or your teammates can even download the game faces of teammates so they will show up during games for everyone.

FIFA 14 - Skill Moves

Below is a table of all the possible skill moves in FIFA 14. Remember that pretty much every skill move requires for the left trigger to be held down, without it your player will just dribble normally if you are moving the right stick. These controls are the same for both the Xbox and the Playstation, although on the Playstation the trigger you want to use is L2. Note that just these core moves are not the only tricks you can do; you can combine them however you want to create your own unique skill move.

FIFA 14 - Manual or Assisted

In FIFA 14, you are given the option of having full, manual control over your passes and shots. This is useful because unlike the default assisted settings, the computer has no effect on where your passes and shots go and how much power they will have. These settings aren't just manual and assisted, you also have the option of semi-assisted settings. However, I recommend that you pick one or the other.

FIFA 14 - Shooting

There have been some pretty significant changes in shooting in FIFA 14. Especially due to the Pure Shot system and the addition of Real Ball Physics, there are a few things to catch up on if you're playing FIFA 14 after experience with other versions. Naturally though, many concepts have remained the same and are explained below as well.

FIFA 14 - How to Score Pure Shots

A new feature to FIFA 14 is the ability to take a 'Pure Shot' on goal which should typically be more challening for the keeper to save. The concept of a Pure Shot is that your shooting player is given enough time and space to set up for his shot, so he does a very realistic kicking motion that results in an extra powerful and very accurate shot.

FIFA 14 - 5 Star Skill Players

Five star skills can be an incredibly useful (and flashy) tool in FIFA 14. Five star "skillers" can use more moves than most players to get past their opponent, some of which are even more effective than the average skill move. As a result, 5-star skillers have become highly-coveted in FIFA 14. The below table lists all 5-star skill players in FIFA 14!
