The symbols you are referring to depict a player's so called specialities. Specialities are divided into silver and gold ones, where gold ones are showing that the player is a really great talent. They are awarded for high stats in certain areas, for example the Speedster speciality is awarded to players with high acceleration and sprint speed (>= 90 I ...

As you are new to FIFA, the best advice regarding skill moves is: Dont do it (yet). The effective use of skill moves is pretty hard to master and randomly executing them will lead to loss of the ball in 90% of the cases. Having said that, here are some tips: Start getting used to dribbling without the special moves. In FIFA 12, manual dribbling (also ...

After playing ~250 multiplayer matches now, I think I can add some of my own suggestions: Using contain/A outside of the one third is quite useless, because there is usually enough space for the attacker to make a safe pass and there usually won't be another defender close enough to help you. Instead, if you want to play apply pressure on your opponent ...

FIFA Encyclopedia seems to be a good resource.

You can't practice them, the only way is scoring in a match.

In this thread john_wisdom shares a fan-made manual that seems to fit your needs. The current PS3 version can be found here.

Just press RT + LT. You can Cancel Pass/Shot this way.

The FIFA Encyclopedia page on Free Kicks is a good reference. It lists the methods for a number of different free kick types based on your position on the field, including the Dipping Free Kick and the Driven Curled Free Kick. Like the page says, it is important to use a player with high Curve and Free Kick Accuracy stats. FIFA Monster has a list of the Top ...

To do a "fake" shot on xbox360: Press B and then A in quick succession. Here's a list of skill moves if you don't mind "spoilers": http://www.fifaencyclopedia.com/fifa-12-skill-moves.php Hope this helps.

I now found a solution in this news article (german): If you remove the following registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Products\1DC6AEF331AE7EC47AE47AA4A4A0B7C5 you are able to install the demo while Fifa 11 stays installed. You should make a backup though, so that you still can ...

At this point, games released for the PS2 are so far down a publisher's/developer's priority list that they might as well not exist. People have reported framerate issues and gameplay problems, although others were happy with everything except the graphics, which you note aren't that important to you. I can't find a side-by-side review, or a review of the ...

Playing Fifa12 on the PC is free. Unlike for example the Xbox 360 where a subscription to XBox live is needed, the PC version only requires an active internet connection and an original copy of the game. So if you exclude costs for your connection, power and the original cost of the game online play is free.

No, there is no way to do this. If the fault had been with the disc, you might have had a warranty depending on when you bought it; but as it was your own action then you must face the consequences.

I don't have a copy of FIFA 12, but here's the meaning of "contain" in real-world soccer: The idea is that a defender should "manage" an attacker and wait for the attacker to make the first move instead of rushing forward to tackle the ball. A defender trying to contain an attacker will typically hang back a bit, move to one side or the other to try to ...

I just figured it out by accident: Press B (shoot) again while the player runs towards the goal. This actually gives you some more time to aim properly, I find it easier to make aimed shots into the goal corners with that technique.

This is quite a good article on Tactical Defending in FIFA 12: FIFA 12 - Defending Guide From my own experience I've found containing and then calling in a second player to be quite effective - when there are two defenders containing they seem to get closer than with just one and tackling is then much easier. If you're running next to an attacker, the ...

When you press LT and RT at the same time, you cancel any action that you executed with your controller but hasn't been executed by the game yet. For example, if you press A but your player delays before actually passing it, in that interim you can press LT+RT and cancel the pass. Hope this helps!

You're not the only one who's had this happen, but there isn't much out there to explain why this is happening. You might confirm that you didn't somehow start Career Mode with a team that was downloaded from the Creation Centre. One of the things that you get with Season Ticket is below: Career Mode Pack Entitles you to use - and actually play ...

I found the solution by myself: The solution is to delete the "UGC Data 1" entry on the storage device. I also had problems with the roster update, which led me to: http://forum.ea.com/uk/posts/list/1166419.page Obviously, "UGC Data 1" is some corrupted Creation Center data, which became obsolete with an update month ago. Unfortunately, they were not ...

Use the button on your controller which is normally used for a "finesse" shot, the one which forces the player to go for a placed shot rather than a power shot. On a free kick this does much the same, allowing you to apply curve and accuracy. I use xbox and I would use RB and the left thumbstick for curve. you need to use the equivalent on your controller

You could borrow a disc from a friend to install the game to your hard drive. Then use your disc to run FIFA. My friend and I did the with MW2 - he severely scratched his disc, so I brought mine over his house to install the game. It worked fine afterwards.

there is no need to remove the whole registry key just add a suffix to it like HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Products\1DC6AEF331AE7EC47AE47AA4A4A0B7C5backup and the demo will install just fine. Afterwards you can remove it so you can properly uninstall fifa 11.

In addition to Anna Lears great answer an answer more based on personal experience: I found containing most useful in situations where you are following a winger towards the corner flag. Normally he will be sprinting, so you have to sprint as well to keep up. The winger usually has 3 options: Cross the ball into the penalty area. Try to dribble towards ...

In fifa-11 The way the personality of each player is reflected in how they play is the most impressive thing, however. On the squad selection screen players have symbols by their names signifying their special attributes; Torres, for example, is both a Speedster and an Acrobat, meaning he's more likely to perform the spectacular in the box and can ...

The points are used to compare yourself with other players, and the points you earn are also given to whatever club you've chosen (whether you are actively playing as that club or not), which are then used to rank the clubs in week long "seasons". The levels themselves are just used as a comparison tool.

I don't know if there is an existing PDF for this already, but all the information you need to create one is in the game menu: Customize FIFA -> Settings -> Controls -> Button Help There you can find all commands for basic moves, skill moves and celebrations. As you will see, the number of moves is quite large, so a PDF might not be exactly helpful. Learn ...

I havent ever played PES but Pro clubs is probably your best best, where you play as your virtual pro. You can invite friends and you make your own club, picking kits etc. You also play in cups for xp and upgrade your stadiums etc.

I haven't played Pro Clubs, but on Virtual Pro career mode (i.e. just playing as my Virtual Pro against the AI) I've found that if I call for the ball from the GK by pressing the pass button, usually the GK will pass it to the defender right in front of him, who will then pass it to me. If I don't call for it, the GK usually boots it up the field. So maybe ...
