The excitement is building toward July 7 with the next The Player Tournament on the Sunshine Coast. Elsewhere in the world a very different tournament is happening, The Fifa World Cup where we are 100% behind Australia to win their next couple of games and go through to the next round after an outstanding performance against France (even though it ended in defeat).
It turns out one of the games we’ll be playing will be the popular Fifa 18. This is one of the best football games ever created and at the time of writing this article there are around 5,376,862 Followers of the game on Twitch alone.
One of the things that makes the game stand out above it’s opposition is the realistic graphics, most of the players especially big names look just like their real life counterparts.
The recent addition of a mode dedicated to the Fifa World Cup 2018 is fantastic. It wasn’t that long ago that EA released “World Cup” as a seperate full price title, so to have it as free downloadable content is just amazing.
To get the best result playing Fifa at “The Player” Tournament I recommend to et some practice in. If you don’t have the game you can pick it up quite cheap at the moment at various stores and online. You can also download the demo from the xbox or playstation store for free.
Another great way to play is to support a great local business “RELOAD” who are a gaming lounge based in Caloundra. They have several FIFA titles available to play as well as many other titles that you can play. Prices generally start at around $8 for half an hour, but go for the 1 hour for $12 and get a few games in.
Fifa 18 is all about possession football, so try to keep the ball for as long as you can. Get used to passing the ball back to your defenders and allowing your left and right backs to go on runs, crossing the ball in for an awesome header.
One more tip, don’t be shy with shooting from distance. In this version of the game they are all about the spectacular goal!
See you on July 7!
