“All new features take some time to get used to,” says lead gameplay producer Sam Rivera. How to score a ball in FIFA 17 decided by not only the operation but also the use of the players. You can use more players in FIFA 17. But sometimes you have no enough FIFA 17 coins to buy higher rank players. Then you need to learn more about the attributes of the players you are using and master the perfect free kick in FIFA 17. You can check player attributes before striking the ball, by holding R2/RT.
“What you need to do with free kicks is understand the player you are using, and know his attributes. For instance, ‘curve’ obviously really affects how much curve a shot will have.” Aim too far wide of the net with a player who has less than a 75 curve rating, and there’s zero chance of it bending back in to hit the target. Under Rivera’s tutelage, we find half the power bar to be just the right amount of oomph to both keep the ball down and stretch the keeper, after a conventional run up.
But, as he explains, there’s a twist: “If you position a player in direct line with the ball, you can go around the wall with the outside of the foot – the Roberto Carlos style. You couldn’t do anything like that before.” Getting it right is much harder than a standard free kick, but there can surely be no better way to properly rub a mate’s face in when they’ve just clattered you on the edge of the area.
