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*

    Same here, dudej.

    For realistic injuries use:

    Injury Frequency – 95
    Injury Severity – 60

    I almost always have 2/3 players injured (one or two for 1-3 weeks and one for a few months).

    These work for me…

  • Huzz

    what difficult you suggest?

  • fabest

    With what settings do you use these sliders ?
    Camera / Difficulty / Speed / Duration of the game…

    I guess these options impact the gameplay too, no ?

  • mak

    do these sliders effect friendly seasons ?

  • MIlziade490ac

    What difficulty is this for? world class?

  • Peter Pan

    this is senseless. Everybody plays the game different. And a CPU pass error of 60 playing pro is different then playing world class.

    So please just delete this topic. There is no golden way for sliders.

    Lol wow @peter pan… Way to get excited about people just trying to share some info to help you enjoy the game a little bit more. Idk how well you can read but in the post dave explicitly says “Don’t take this as gospel, simply use them as a guide”. Clearly he isn’t stating this is the golden way for sliders. Man people are morons!

  • David Bryant

    Guys these sliders are best used on Pro or Worldclass, Gamespeed normal and 6 minute halves.

    @Peter Pan did you read the text above? To be used as a baseline ONLY!

  • http://mikeastuto@twitter.com Mike Astuto

    Excited to try these out guys. Im still loving FIFA12 finally able to play my CM on legendary now that my defending is improving! The game plays really well on legendary with the sliders on the default settings but i’ll def try these out. Its pretty hard to come by clean sheets though. I think through 11 matches in my MLS CM I have about 2 or 3 clean sheets.

  • dabrickashaw22

    6 minute halves?

  • tryyyniii

    this changes have impact on H2H seasons and online friendlies… just try it for yourselfs!

  • Espen

    I tested this out. Playing Barcelona – Real Madrid 10 min halfs, slow gamespeed, on Professional. I was Barca I felt it was way to slow tempo on the game then, then I tryed same teams, lenght, settings, but set it to normal gamespeed. then I felt it was a little bit to fast, I need to find a balance with me setting gamespeed to Slow, and the right speed settings on the game.

    So It’s mostly now about finding a perfect setting for Sprint Speed, and Acceleration speed. But I like this Guide to work out from, Thanks alot for this one. Really appreciated. I will keep on experimenting on this slider settings :)

  • Mads

    Is these settings for the most realistic gameplay or?

  • Gui Cramer

    Do sliders impact the ability to obtain trophies? I scored right after a quick throw in and got no achievement and something else. What confused me most was I did get a trophy for someone scoring a goal after injuring themselves.

    PS: CPU pass error at 85 still won’t matter with the AI in World Class or Legendary, so many teams I played against (especially Legendary) and they still get 90%+ passing, even crap teams from 1.5-3 stars, and they all play the same awesome passing accuracy despite position and pressure.

  • Espen

    I made some slight differences on Sprint Speed, and Acceleration. And played Barca – Real Madrid 10 min halfs, Proffesional, All Controlling Manual. I set them to 55 on Sprint Speed and 52 on Accelereation for User and CPU settings. The game I played so far with this settings was so nice, and felt so realistic. Strange with only these minor changes. it felt so more realistic.

    I will be trying same settings with more teams, to check out. I have not completed the game yet, but It’s 3 – 3 after full time, Golden Goal time now. will post more later when finished this game, and tryed some more teams with these settings :)

    Surley the injury sliders would be too high for career mode?
