Composure in FIFA 18 / FUT – What Does it Mean?

There are thousands of player in FIFA 18 and the only thing that makes each and every one of them different from each other is their attributes. Yes, each and every player has a different set of attribute that imparts them special movement, passing, shooting and other abilities. More is the rating of the attribute, the better the player is in passing or shooting. These attributes play an important role while you are buying a player from the transfer market. If you want your player to sprint, buy a player with high Pace attribute rating. If you want a pass master, get a player with high Passing attribute and so on.

One such important attribute from all of them is Composure. No doubt most of the players most look at the main six attributes which are Shooting, Passing, Pace, Physical, Defending, and Dribbling. However, that is not all and there are many attributes that you usually can’t see easily. There are more than 30 attributes associated with a player and Composure is one important one of them.

The complete list of attributes are:

Shooting

  • Finishing
  • Penalties
  • Long Shots
  • Shot Power
  • Volleys
  • Positioning

Pace

  • Sprint Speed
  • Acceleration

Dribbling

  • Reaction
  • Composure
  • Agility
  • Ball Control
  • Balance
  • Dribbling

Passing

  • Curve
  • Crossing
  • Long Passing
  • Vision
  • Free Kick
  • Short Passing

Defending

  • Standing Tackle
  • Heading
  • Marking
  • Sliding Tackle
  • Interceptions

Physical

  • Strength
  • Aggression
  • Stamina
  • Jumping

Goalkeeping

  • Kicking
  • Handling
  • Diving
  • Speed
  • Reflexes
  • Positioning

Composure

Composure is a typical attribute. To put it in a simple manner, it is the attribute that determines that at what distance the player with the ball is going to start feeling the pressure from the opponent player. If the composure is not strong, the opponent player can throw you off balance while you are shooting, making you miss the target. Not only that, you passing, through passes and crosses are also affected by it as well. More is the composure rating of the player, the better he performs, passes and shoots under direct pressure from an opponent. It is not something new that we are seeing in FIFA 18 and it has been there in previous editions of the game as well. It was removed games before FIFA 17 but re-introduced from last year’s game.

So, next time you are buying a new attacker or a midfielder, make sure you check his composure so that he can withstand even the toughest of oppression.

FIFA 18 Complete FUT Carryover Guide

The all-new FIFA 18 is out and we all are already a fan of it. However, the new version of FIFA brings a problem along with it, how to transfer all your data to the newer version without losing all your FIFA profile data. Yes, there are many players out there who do not care about their old game data and get the new copy as soon as it gets out there. But there are many who just do not want to lose their entire year’s hard work and start all over again. If you are the second time, you might be a bit disappointed with what we are going to share here. But there are many tricks by which you can get some of your existing data and progress back in the new FIFA 18 FUT. But here we are going to give you all we can which will help you to get your Ultimate Team saved trophies, coins and cards back.

Since most of the players already know about how to carry FIFA 17 FUT to FIFA 18, but there are many who are actually unaware of this fact. Also, there are many gamers who do a lot of mistakes while carrying over their profile data and thus are not able to take everything they have achieved in the new FIFA game.

Given below are the things that the players can carry to the next FIFA 18 game from FIFA 17.

You Club Establishment Date

The first thing that you are going to bring along with your profile in the new FIFA 18 is the established date of your club. Yes, it is obvious, the date when you started playing the FIFA Ultimate Team will remain the same. However, there were few complaints about the established dates shown wrong in FIFA 17. But the dates you had in FIFA 17 will remain same as in FIFA 18 too. It is one of those things that are never going to change.

Your XP

Your XP also remains the same. The XP system keeps on measuring how much experienced you are in the FIFA universe. Every time you play the game doesn’t matter you win or lose, you will gain some XP and it increases all the time until the bar is filled and you reach the next level. Your XP is not dependent upon the platform, mode or something, but only your profile. You will retain all your XP all the time and you can see it in the top right corner just below your ID. Obviously, retaining you XP in the new game is going to help you a lot by giving access to few of the EASFC Catalogues items that won’t be available to the fresh players.

FUT Club Name

You will also have your Club Name. When you first started playing FIFA Ultimate Team you will be asked to name your Club, that name remains there and the players also get an option to change the name or to keep it same when you start FUT in FIFA 18. In case you wish to change the name of your club at later point in time, you will have to complete various Manager tasks or get EASFC Catalogue item to edit it. In case you chose to change your Club’s name, your old name will be then available for other to pick while your team with get the new name.
FIFA FC Credits

FIFA FC Credits are nothing but FIFA Coins. Similar to the XP, the FIFA Coins are directly linked to your Origin account and remain the same when you change your gaming platform and even when you upgrade to the newer version of FIFA. In case you are moving to FIFA 18 from FIFA 17, we would recommend you to save few coins so that you can purchase few EASFC Catalogue Items and boost items to get a head start in FUT 18.

FIFA Points

In case you do not have many FIFA coins, FIFA points can act as an alternative using which you can buy various FUT items and packs from the store. If you already having points in FIFA 17 game, do not spend them on any FUT 17 items, instead, save them and use them in FUT 18. While transferring all this data, you need to be very careful to ear as much as you can in FIFA 17 and carry over to FIFA 18, because you will just have a single shot at it.

The only problem with transferring the coins to the new game is that you cannot transfer them if you changing the console. So, if you are earning the points in Xbox console and you are planning the play the new FIFA 18 game on PS4, then you are not going to get all your points and data back. Also, if you’re playing the previous game on PS3 and getting new PS4 for FIFA 18, the points are not going to transfer in this case as well. So, you need to be on the same console in case you wish to transfer your FIFA points from old game to new.

The Non-Transferable Items

So, above were the things that the gamers can transfer from FIFA 17 to FIFA 18, but there are many other things as well that we cannot transfer into the new game.

FIFA Coins

The first thing every player wishes to carry forward to the new game is FIFA Coins. But the disappointing thing about it that you can not transfer them in the new FUT game. We have checked all we can and there is nothing anyone could do about it. You might think of converting them to cards and then carry forward, but we would like to tell you that it is not possible as well. Since you will have to start freshly in FIFA 18, you can transfer your old coins to your family and friends.

FUT Cards

We know how hard it is to say goodbye to your hard earned cards. You might have some of the legendary players like Ronaldo or Messi, but you will have to leave them and move on as you can not transfer your cards from FIFA FUT17 to FIFA FUT 18. Not only that, the players also cannot transfer the staff, the club items or the consumables to FIFA 18.

The Current Division

The Divisions are reset once you start playing FIFA 18. Yes, it does not matter whether you were the best player sitting in Division 2 or the best who struggled a lot to reach Division 1. As you start playing FIFA 18 Ultimate Team, all the players start from the basic, i.e. Division 10. No matter what position you held in the previous game, you will have to start all over again.

Your Trophies and Achievements

It is pretty obvious that you won’t be able to take forward all your achievements and trophies on to the next game. The new game FIFA 18 comes with a lot of changes in many aspects of the game, including the gameplay. There is no doubt FIFA 18 possesses better gameplay, a different mechanics and more and better challenges for the players, and it is fun to learn them and get all those trophies once again.

Match Records and Leaderboards

If you have an excellent match record and you are ranking high on the leaderboard, be ready to get disappointed again. It better to take a picture if you want to prove it to someone because in FUT 18, you start from fresh and all your match win/lose/draw data wipes away as soon as you switch to the next version. Even if you are playing it, your data will be removed after 2 years because EA does not wish to spend money on servers with very fewer players on it.

So that was all you need to know about the transfers that you can make while switching to FIFA 18 FUT from FUT 17. There is a huge loss, but that should not stop you from getting and playing the new FIFA 18 game. We know its kind of hard to start all over again but isn’t that fun too. Competing with other opponents and facing new challenges in a better version of the game than before. In case you have any questions regarding the FIFA FUT Transfer from FIFA 17 to FIFA 18, do write to us in comments below.

FIFA 18 Finesse Shot Tutorial – Easily Score Lots of Goals with Any Player

Scoring goals in one on one situation or even simple scoring is tough in the new FIFA 18. You can take it as a part of gameplay enhancement or overpowered goalkeepers, but getting your ball at the back of the net is not at all easy in the new FIFA game. Simple shooting still works, but it won’t help you every time, and you will definitely have to switch to different types of shots for effective scoring.

There are different shot types that could help you in getting the ball in from different spots and positions. For example, if you are far away from the goal, you should use Power shot (shooting with Pace Control button) to dip your ball while imparting a huge amount of power in it. In case a goalkeeper is charging towards you, use chip shot to play the ball over the goalkeeper’s head and score a goal etc. One such shot type that we loved to play with in FIFA 17 was Finesse shot, however, it has been made a lot more difficult in the latest FIFA 18 version. Not only that, you will definitely have to use this shot type if you really wish to be lethal in the FIFA 18 game.

Finesse Shot FIFA 18 PS4 Xbox

Performing a Finesse shot in the game is easy, however, the placement, timing, and position from where you take the shoot is very important and should be perfect for scoring. In order to perform a Finesse shot, you just need to hold down the R1 button on your PS4 controller or the RB button on your Xbox controller (default settings), and then press the shoot (circle or B) button on your controller with an accurate amount of power to curve the ball and send it to the back side of the net. This technique of scoring is very useful whenever you are heading towards the opponent’s goal at a particular and wish to curl or curve the ball from outside to inside around the keeper for a goal.

However, if you do not know how to hit finesse shots in FIFA 18, you can follow the tutorial below in order to learn, master and score a lot of easy goals in FIFA 18.

How to perform Finesse Shot in FIFA 18

There is no doubt in the fact that Finesse shots are the most overpowered shots in the FIFA 18 game, and they are very lethal as well when performed from the right spot. They are far more easier than FIFA 17, but more tricky as well.

The steps here will help you to score with any player mostly, still, we recommend you to take a shot with a player which has high accuracy as well as finishing. This is definitely going to improve your chances a lot while scoring. A better player with high ratings and attributes can easily play the finesse shot from far away, while for players with less rating need to come a bit closer to the post, sometimes inside the Penalty box for scoring accurately.

The next thing that you need to take care of is the power you need to apply while taking the shot. That is why you will also need a player with decent shot power, and then you will be able to score as many screamers from different positions in the game.

When Shooting from Far Outside the Box

Step 1: Move in the direction where you wish to hit the ball, top or the bottom corner.

Step 2: Press the RB or R1 button on the controller

Step 3: Now when you are far or outside the box, of around 25-35 yards, press shoot. You will need minimum two and a half bar of power.

Don’t put in too much thinking that you are far. That will carry the ball way over the bar. With the right direction, hold the R1 button (RB on Xbox) and press the shooting button with appropriate power.

When Shooting from Far Top Left of the Box

Step 1: Move towards the bottom right corner of the box.

Step 2: Press the R1 or RB button on your controller.

Step 3: Now, aim the thumbstick down and then tilt it slightly towards the right while pressing the shoot button with 2-3 bar power.

When Shooting from Far Bottom Left of the Box

Step 1: Move towards the top right corner of the box.

Step 2: Press the R1 or RB button on your controller.

Step 3: Now, aim the thumbstick up and then shift it a bit towards the right while pressing the shoot button with 2-3 bar power.

When Shooting from Far Top Right of the Box

Step 1: Move towards the bottom left corner of the box.

Step 2: Press the RB or R1 button on your respective PS and Xbox controllers.

Step 3: Now, aim the thumbstick down and them tilt it slightly towards the left while pressing the shoot button with 2-3 bar power.

When Shooting from Far Bottom Right of the Box

Step 1: Move towards the top left corner of the box.

Step 2: Press the RB or R1 button on your respective PS and Xbox controllers.

Step 3: Now, aim the thumbstick up and them swirl it towards the left while pressing the shoot button with 2-3 bar power.

When Shooting while Moving Away from the Goal

On the other hand, if you are moving away from the near side,

Step 1: First of all leave the Sprint button if you are using it.

Step 2: Aim towards the far corner of the goal depending upon from where you wish to take the shot.

Step 3: Press and hold the RB or R1 button on your controller.

Step 4: Press the shoot button with only 1-2 bar of power. Since you are near the post, applying too much power will take the ball out of the ground over the goal post.

Same you can do if you are moving towards the net in opposite direction, this will make the ball swirl. This time you need a bit less power, two to three bar would be enough to get the ball behind the keeper and score a goal.

There is another important thing to keep in mind. And that is, where you want to put the ball in the entire goal box. Power is very important when you want to score a finesse shot, and based upon you are aiming for a low shot or a powerful curler to the top corner, the power you need to put in is going to vary.

For example, you see the goalkeeper moving towards you and you wish to just finesse slip the ball around the approaching goalkeeper, it will require very little power. But if you wish to slot the ball right at the top corner from the edge or inside the box, overall the defenders, you will have to increase the power a bit to one or one and a half bar.

There are some secondary points that you should keep in the mind as well. We all know that the shots are very much affected by the weather conditions in the game. So, you might have to vary the power while taking the finesse shots in rain or snow. Also, we would recommend to go for the finesse shot with the player’s preferred foot. It is something you will realize when you will see Ronaldo and Messi curling the ball exceptionally from their preferred foot than the other foot. Last but not the least, try, try and try. The more you will try, more perfect and comfortable you become for trying the finesse shot from various positions, even from far long.

What is FIFA 18 Chemistry and How to Increase it

There are a lot of things that have been enhanced in the new FIFA 18. One thing that was ignored in the earlier games was the chemistry. We are talking about Team chemistry, player chemistry as well as the different chemistry styles. A good chemistry between your players can help in the development of the players attribute by 60 to 80 points. A good FIFA 18 chemistry can change your silver card into a good one, and a bad chemistry could take the new players attribute and change the card from gold to Silver.
You might not know of the many benefits that it can have on your team and the players. Many of you might not even know what it actually means, how you can build it, how you can include individual chemistry with team chemistry etc.

FIFA 18 Chemistry – How it Works

Completely understanding the FIFA 18 Chemistry in FUT is a bit complex. There is actually an algorithm that executes different equations behind it. Basically, there are three different types of Chemistry in the game. The Player Chemistry rated out of 10. The Team CHemistry which is rated out of 100 and then comes the overall chemistry which is a combination of the Team Chemistry and Individual Player Chemistry.

There are different Chemistry Styles which are basically modifiers that come into effect when the stats have been increased. Every time you play a match against opponents, a good team and player chemistry helps in increasing their attributes by a huge amount.
The Player Chemistry and the Team Chemistry do not affect the player attributes in an even manner. Instead, EA finally revealed the logic behind it. The Player Chemistry accounts for 75% while only 25% is reserved for Team Chemistry. So, it is better to have a card with 10 rated Player Chemistry than having a team with overall Team Chemistry of 100. The later is not fully ruled out, but effects very little.

How they affect the attributes? This is calculated by calculating the Overall Chemistry of the player. The Overall Chemistry is marked out of hundred. If the Overall Chemistry of the player is more than 50, you will see an increment in the player attributes. If the Overall Chemistry is less than 50, the attributes will fall. And if it is exactly 50, the attributes won’t rise or fall. The amount of increase depends upon how much over or under the Overall Chemistry rating is from 50.

But how to calculate Overall Chemistry? You won’t have to apply much math to it.

  • First, take up the Individual Player Chemistry rating and multiply it with 7.5
  • Now take your Team Chemistry and multiply it by 0.25
  • Now add both the results to get the Overall Chemistry.

For example, if you have a player with Individual Player Chemistry of 9 and a chemistry of the team be 90, the overall chemistry of the player will be 9 x 7.5 + 90 x 0.25 = 90. Since 90 is way far from 50, the attributes of the player will increase really fast.
On the other hand, which attribute will increase depends upon the chemistry styles. Another thing to keep in mind is that the Chemistry is calculated before the match is started. The chemistry rating does not change with any kind of change in team formation or substitution that you make after the match starts.

There are three possible scenarios that could happen with FIFA 18 Chemistry:

  • If the player has 100 team chemistry rating and 10 individual chemistry rating, you will see the maximum increase in the attribute points.  You get 90 attribute points which are distributed as per you chemistry style pack.
  • On the other hand, if you have 0 team chemistry as well as 0 Player chemistry, you will see a maximum decrease of 25 points in every attribute.
  • If a player has individual chemistry ranging from 3 to 5,  the attribute increment is nonuniform.

How to Increase FIFA 18 Chemistry in FUT

There are certain factors that you should keep in your mind if you want to have a better player as well as team chemistry.  Some important of them are:

Player Positioning: The position at which a player plays is written right under the card. When they are played in any other position you will see the position color changing to green, orange or red.  Red simply means that the player is out of position disturbing the entire team chemistry as well. Orange means that the player is likely out of position and green means that he is perfectly in position.  Place the players in their natural spots for better Team chemistry.

Player Linking: This is an important part. When you place a player in any position, you will see a lot of lines connecting their card with the cards of other players around him.  These lines are different in color again, i.e.  red, green and orange. There are a lot of things that determine the color of these lines for example, whether the players are of the same league, club or nationality.  The final chemistry is determined by the number of green lines x 2 + the number of orange lines – the number of red Lines.

Manager: The Team Chemistry also depends upon the league as well as the nationality of the manager. But not all the players are affected. If the player in your team is from the same league or nation, he will get a Chemistry boost in the form of a green tie icon.

There is a loyalty bonus of one point in Team Chemistry for all player who has played 10 or more matches in your Club.

And for the substitutes, EA recently announced that each and every sub that comes on the pitch after the match starts comes with a flat Player Chemistry rating of 5, no more no less. That makes an overall rating of 60-65, which is not bad too.
