    I don't know that for sure because i haven't been able to play against many people over the net, but in the lan at our college i kick ass and against the comp i dominate, except for some strange games where my comp runs the game really slow. I just thought as people have been asking about stuff in this forum and i know how to do it i might post this thread giving them advice and if there's something i dont know, maybe someone else who reads this thread can help us/and me out there

    Ok Free kicks, as far as i know/have figured so far, there are 2 possible ways to score from free kicks, although in some positions only one way that i have found and the second way is very unreliable and there is one position where you can score with another way.

    Ok the way i have found to score from free kicks depends on a few different things, obviously the position and the distance from the goal. (if you have a very wide free kick i recommend crossing or passing the ball off simply because it is a better option unless you get your kick almost 100% perfect)

    Assume for the moment the free kick is close and on the left of the goal

    Step 1 - Line up the ball with the left hand (near) goal post or maybe slightly to the left of it
    Step 2 - hold UP until you cant get any higher
    Step 3 - Use SHIFT and RIGHT or other analog stick and push all the way to the left to curl the ball
    Step 4 - Hold down Trigger Run/Tactics Modifier button (default Q)
    Step 5 - Use LOB NOT SHOOT for between half and three quarter power
    Step 6 - Watch the keeper save the ball into the net (most likely) the keeper catch it or save it (you need more power or further left) or it go wide (move back right slightly) or hit bar and land on roof of net (less power)

    This is basically how to score a free kick and you may have to practice (a lot) to get it working but if you perfect it then you score every time.

    To score from further out use the same technique just adjust the power (note in practice mode for the furtherest out free kicks use full power)

    To score from the other side

    To score from the other side of the goal in the same position use the same technique but curl the ball the other way and aim for right goal post (still near post) except when in real close, just to the right a little bit this doesn't seem to work, i can only hit bar.

    Also from the right side of the goal if you get into a position similar to one you will face in practice where there is a big gap to the left of the goal and you are reasonably close in then just hold down Trigger Run/Tactics Modifier button (default Q) and use lob to three quarter power to put the ball in the top left corner, over the diving keeper (almost only free kick i score where keeper doesn't touch it)

    The other way i've scored a free kick is with a low drive but that seems to be completely random and only done it like 3 times and can't see a pattern to how i do it so i'll look into it more for now and maybe post something when/if i discover how to do it

    Hope this helps, post if you're having any problems with this and i'll try help out.

    By the way i think this is still a ridiculously complicated process to do just to score a free kick so if anyone has an easier way then please enlighten us

    Ok I got a Question then...

    What do you do if your left striker has broken past the middle fielders and there are only defenders left. Now the left striker (or right) is on the wing trying to get to the side of the goalie box so that he can lob the ball to the other striker, so that the other striker can header the ball in the goal.

    Now what I want to know is what do you do if you are running for the side lines when there is 3 defenders all around you, 1 behind and one to your side so you cant lob or it will just hit him, the other defender is nearby. How can I still pass the ball to the other striker without hitting the other defender or by screwing up or something. I have tried stoping my person so that the bots run ahead but I never succeed in that situation, what do I do in that situation?

    1) Not sure why you need to get to the edge of the box to cross, cant you cross from a wide position, an idea is to use lofted through ball (to corner flag) maybe to get your striker to a wide position in the first place but dunno what you mean about having to get to the box, although maybe you could just dribble there?

    2) Not quite sure what you mean here, do you mean you are have one defender in front of your player, one to the side and one to the middle of the guy in front of you. If so, and you aren't too wide go towards the guy in front of you and at the last sec use pace and go wide of him then cross straight away. (you go to him and then quickly give your space wide and cross and usually you get the cross over although not always that accurate)

    Other wise you could use some/a trick to burn the guy in front of you and cross straight after or use a trick to give yourself time to cross. And possibly there is the use of through ball or lofted through ball to your player depending where he is and also i have found that if you wanna get the ball over someone a chipped shot can be useful as long as you're not to near the goal so the keeper will get it.

    It's really just a matter of getting the ball to your strikers head then heading it on target with correct timing. You can go for normal header which works most times, just gotta aim it right, dont be afraid to go near post header instead of across the goal, in fact generally if you're at the near post this header works better. If you get the timing wrong usually you will head the ball over the bar.

    I'll put something more up on headers later, right now i gtg

    1) what I mean is, not in the box but anywhere on the side of it, I could be running along the throw in line, heading towards the goals ( my tactic is to wing play the situations then lob it to the free striker for him to header or kick it in when he is close enough to the goals, remember all the defenders are consentrating on me, so when I lob the other striker is free)

    2) It doesnt matter where the defenders are but they are always around me (especially when Im very close to the throw in line) often I cant lob to my left or right cause they will block the kick with their body and there are too many of them to pass to someone else. Also remember I always run, Im always holding down my run key even at kick - off (is this a bad idea?) so I cant pace even faster.

    So all I want to know his how can I quickly break free from the defender(s) to give me enough time to lob the ball to the open stiker?

    I got another question:

    What is your favourite or most effective method of dribbling past the opponent team's players?

    2)Holding down the run key at all times is definately a bad idea because you have way less control of the ball than if you are dribbling normal so burning players is less effective if you're holding down run, sure hold down run after you burn someone to get rid of them but not while you're doing a trick.

    This also elimates the option i suggested because if you're always running you cant break sideways at a quicker pace than you're going. Try this when you get in to the position you are press pace control button until you stop, then qiuckly tap or hold run to the left or right and cross almost at the same time you press run.

    Also i dont seem to get in this position that often if ever, dunno whether if it's just your style of play so not sure how helpful my advice will be here, i tend to go down the middle and then if nothing's on go for a lofted through ball to corner flag for my winger or striker to cross, usually first time to avoid the probelm you have, but other wise i use my pace control, sprint trick.

    So you're having problems crossing it, to your central striker, from wide positions?

    Its not that Im having problems crossing its just that somethimes the defenders will swarm my ass and presurizing me.

    My Team is Germany and there 2 strikers are Podolski and Klose, so often with either Klose or Podolski (they are left and right fowarders) I get to the side of the goal and then When I try to pass the defenders that were swarming me, and my ball is blocked, This doesnt happen often but it does happen and it really irritates me cause I dont know how to get out of that situation.

    just press "D" while in front or by the side of an running\standing opponent, works like always if done properly. also use Q to call for nearest player to help you, that'll add up a pressure on your opponent.
    you can also try sliding with "A", but there's always danger of fouling->yellow\red, so be careful and don't press it desperately :) .
    also.
    imo the key thing here is to have all enemy players always(ideally ;) ) marked, to close all the doors and not give a chance to pass the ball further. That way you'll eventually intercept a pass\tackle & get the ball back :)

    I also have a few questions.
    1. How to perform bicycle kicks?
    2. How to perform different dribbling moves\special moves?
    thanks in advance :)

    so dribble use the shift + directional keys, that performs a series of tricks and dribbling. I find that when doing that players have less control of the ball but can pass quicky and accurately.

    Bycles kicks as far as I know is when a lobs been done just press your strike key before the ball comes (but Ive never done a proper bycle kick)

    To do with your answer, how do you "all enemyies always markes, to close all the doors" this, is this just by takling or is this a strategic formation

    both :) You need to somehow guess opponent moves & close enemy players with yours->put pressure on the player with the ball&tackle. it's rather difficult, 50\50 I'm running the wrong way or I'm doing everything right and stop the attack. On strategic formations: I use flat back and zonal defence+ I lowered player auto-switching for more precise control. btw i'm playing with Widescreen camera :)

    Sorry i've been away for a while people, we had a study week at uni and i went off somewhere without net.

    Good advice on the tackling, i tend to tap D almost non-stop when there's a guy running at me and i'm in front of him which either forces them to turn or you tackle the ball off them. (i don't know if tapping D lots makes any difference than just hitting once at the right time but it's just a kinda habit i have)

    I know i have done a bicycle kick before but for the life of me i can't remember how, i think it was probably a lucky combination of buttons, tried again just then in practice mode but it still ain't working for me.

    To dribble/do moves use shift and arrow keys or right analog and occaisonally use pace control button and the step-over button

    Also something i think would be useful is does anyone know where i can view a the manual, because i don't have one, just working it out as i go and there are some buttons i just found which i'm still not overly sure what they stand for (like the wing play ones but they change if you hold another button) It's the kinda pad thingo on the joystick, directional buttons but not for movement
