I play career mode in FIFA 12 and have played 2 seasons but my character does not improve in strength and agility. What do I need to do during games to get better?

Edit: These are my conclusions for now:

  • The agility and strength attributes are governed by your height and weight. The "fatter" your character, the slower he is, but his strength raises. There is a sweet spot in the height/weight ratio.
  • If you play a virtual pro you can improve through accomplishments
  • It is very hard but possible to improve strength/agility otherwise, but I do not know what the trigger is.
  • Steroids? HGH? Sorry, don't have a real answer for you. – Doozer Blake Oct 2 '11 at 3:36
  • Are you talking about your virtual pro? – magnattic Oct 2 '11 at 9:29
  • I play the following mode: Game Modes -> Career Mode -> New Career -> Player, so I do not know if this is considered Virtual Pro. – ayckoster Oct 2 '11 at 10:54
  • It's funny that they seem to remove this feature in FIFA 12. I prefer FIFA 11 on this aspect. – Rudy Oct 14 '11 at 3:12

You need to get red carded 3 times in 3 consecutive games to do up your strength. It's a glitch in the game. But the hard thing is that when you get red carded, you have to serve a match ban, so the only way to do it is to get yellow carded first, a second yellow card, at a time where your calendar shows that you're playing a domestic league game, then a champions league game, then another domestic league game.

    do you have any links that back up this theory? i kinda doubt it – magnattic Oct 11 '11 at 7:24
  • I am skeptical too. Even if this works this is a cheat/bug abuse and not a proper answer. – ayckoster Oct 13 '11 at 0:19
