A Guide To FIFA 12 Gameplay Sliders

Slide Show?

The question which has cropped up the most on my Twitter timeline since FIFA 12 launched is without doubt “what gameplay slider settings are you using” and after a few weeks of testing we think we have a really good baseline that you guys can take away and modify as you see fit.

The key point to remember is that FIFA is a very personal experience and what some people like, others will hate so don’t treat these settings as gospel, simply use them as a guide to help you shape FIFA 12 the way you want it to play offline.

If you have any feedback or suggestions about which ratings you think should be tweaked then hit the comments and let us know.

*FIFA 12 Gameplay Sliders can be accessed via Game Settings before a match or in “Customise FIFA12″ from the main menu*

    @David, it could be that in CM it makes sense, but for friendlies, it looked a bit too much.

    I play manual, and I’m very happy with the gameplay. I’ve made some goals that I haven’t been able to do up until now, mostly because my players are moving around a lot more. And it’s not silly moves that leave you open or that your players are always out of position.

    I wasn’t too happy with the single player mode so far, and yesterday I really got that “just one more game” vibe. This is great, keep posting these findings.

    Btw, I’m playing world class, mainly with the 3 main Portuguese teams. It could be that other dificulty levels, or with 5 star teams, the feeling is a bit diferent though.

    Why cant we put all settings to 100 for both them and us and see who plays best??? Wouldnt that make more sense?

  • Espen

    @David. I started a new career with Liverpool with these settings yesterday. Only tweaked some on Sprint Speed, and Accelearation as I said yesterday. Playing 8 min halfs, on Proffesional, all Manual, slow game speed.

    Only played 2 friendlys so far, I got 1 game left against Bayern München before the season starts. Only thing I experienced playing Monday night is that I played Atalanta frindly game in my season, everything was super slow, even I havent changed anything from my previous game. Seems the Game Speed Slow option is some kinde messed up like someone else posted here.. I hope it was only a bug that game.. I will inform when I played some in my season how I think it goes. Also find it strange CPU nearly never shoots from distance.. Kinde sad actually..

    I also bought some players, Gonzales Higuain, Abgonlahor, Gary Cahill, trying to pick up Eden Hazard on a 1 season loan, I sold Carrol, Skrtel, Lucas, Rodriguez, And 1 more I cant remember the name on atm..

    These slider adjustments have finally enabled me to enjoy the single player modes. CM Was killing me as I was getting trounced on World Class 6-0 by lower league teams as Man Utd, and I am a very proficient and experienced FIFA player. One thing I will say though, it seems rather odd that both the injury severity and injury frequency sliders have been upped. The logic of having frequent injuries that aren’t often severe seems very realistic, but wouldn’t that necessitate dropping INJ severity to something below 50? In two games last night I saw Stevie G get a sprained ankle (not bad) and Rooney break his (ouch), so I’m not sure what the long term effects will be.

    So Ive been playing on legendary with the sliders set to default 50 for everything. I left it on legendary and changed the sliders according to this post. Immediately i noticed much more variety in build up play and shooting from the outside from my opponents. Ive played 2 games thus far. NY RedBulls vs LA Galaxy and then I rematched the same teams. Both games finished in 1-0 victories for me. Thus far I really like it. Biggest thing I’ve noticed is lower scorelines and just an overall better pace of the game.

    Well as some people have mentioned I too think that Slow game speed setting is broken somehow… I’m not sure that’s got anything to do with the sliders at all. But when I changed the sliders and set the game speed from Slow to Normal tackling is A LOT easier.
    Will have to do same test to see if this is really the case.

  • Espen

    I’m still testing on slow in my Liverpool career, But I’m kinde confussed, I scored against Bolton a 2 – 1 goal in 90th Min, actually think it only was seconds before referee would blow of the game, but no Trophy at all. That’s bullshit if you ask me, I was sure that was one of the Hidden Trophys as people here said before.. I got the Trophy score 100 Goals not long after, so why didnt I get that hidden one. Anyone knows?

  • Ldn maaan

    Works perfectly thank u :)

  • Espen

    So far for me to. But still why on earth dosent CPU shoot more from distance regardless from what difficulty you play on? That’s just as unrealistic as it can get.. Also another thing when you get a corner, why cant we decide how many we wanne send in the box, if we wanne send the keeper we should choose when we wanna do that also. I hoped this would be fixed for the 3 latest Fifa games, but still It’s not fixed. Other then this 2 things I love Fifa12 ALOT :)

  • http://tattushenoi.blogspot.com/ tattu

    Whats the fuss with this thing? Why cant it be same for us and them and see who is better? Why change? If you want yourself to be better, put a lesser difficulty else put a higher one…simple..

    I think apart from disastrous defending and other few things this is a great game..

  • Huzz

    what camera angle is? This seems to effect the pace of the game.

  • jacko

    i tested this sliders&is pretty good … too much shot errors from CPU …

  • Espen

    I also think we should set it to Same Pass Error, and Shoot Error. CPU Are missing to much as Jacko says.. Other then that I think It’s really nice :) Maybe some tweaks here and then with the time, but so far so good :)

  • Feng

    After trying FIFA 12 (Xbox 360) with your tweaks at the difficulty of “World Class”, my opinion is below:

    User Game Customisation:
    Shot Error – 55 (I feel at 50 shooting is a bit easy, especially long-distance power shot)

    CPU Game Customisation:
    Pass Error – 60 (60 is a bit too high, AI can hardly threaten my goal, 55 is a lot better)

  • FiFA junkie

    can anyone tell me if these settings pass over to online game play or is it just for career mode
