How To Get To Division 1 In Fifa 12

Updated on April 22, 2012

Pick A Team

The number 1 thing to do is to pick a team and stick with it. You can test a few teams but in the end choose one, learn how they play and how to do well with them, and it will help you a lot. Some ideas for teams can be found here.

It doesn't have to be a 5 star team, remember in Fifa 12 you will only play teams of your star rating so pick a team from whatever league you want, just make sure you have a good knowledge of their players so you know their strengths and weaknesses, which will affect how you play.

Choose A Formation And Style

For example Bayern Munich have two fast wingers and a tall striker, so you will want to do a lot of crossing, whereas Barcelona's team is very small but with good passing so you will want to rarely cross and instead work your way forward with passing.

Bayern Munich's default formation is 4-3-3 which is ideal for what you want, but a team like Manchester United's default formation is 4-4-1-1 which is not very good, so you might want to edit it to include more than one striker (4-4-2, 3-5-2) or 3 centre midfielders (4-3-3, 4-3-1-2), which are all probably better formations, although it depends on your style.

Use The In-Game Tactic Sliders

A lot of people neglect using the in-game tactics as they think that they're not useful, but they are crucial, whether you're going for an equalizer in the last 5 minutes (ultra-attacking, high pressure) or desperately defending a 1 goal lead (ultra-defensive, possession).

You can create your own custom tactics if you want but I find the ready-made ones such as possession, high pressure, counter attack and long ball are good enough to use for most teams.

You need to adjust them to your style of play: Barcelona would probably use balanced and possession, but Real Madrid would use attacking and high pressure.

Quit Early

That's a weird thing to tell you to do, but there is a 5 minute window where you allowed to quit.It is only meant to be used if there is lag or a kit clash between the teams , but a lot players just quit if their opponent scores an early goal, although be prepared for some abusive messages if you do this!

It is better to quit in the first five minutes than struggle through a game with lag or being confused over whose kit is whose.

Be Good At Fifa

All the above tips will help, but when it comes down to it, you're going to have to be quite good if you're going to get to Division 1.

What division are you in?
