FIFA 12: Be A Pro Guide



It can be a bit of a chore to level up your character in FIFA 12, especially if you want to use him in the competitive realm of online play. No matter which way you slice it, there will be a large time commitment, but if you set up things the right way and pay attention to specific aspects of player creation and tweaking, you can get your pro to a competitive state in a lot less time.

I really don't see the point of the "Accelerating the process" part of this article. What's the point of building a player to greatness in Be a Pro if you're just gonna take the easy way out and play bad or 'boosting' teams with messed up sliders that make it easy to attack and score?

Why not just play the game the right way and build your player up over time, against quality competition? I just don't agree at all with the cheap method this author is advocating.

I agree with you.

I totally get where you guys are coming from. That said, I stated in the article that not all people would feel comfortable playing against these "weaker" teams. At the end of the day, though, all it really amounts to is AI sliders being lowered to get some of the earlier unlocks faster. This method isn't going to get you to a 99 very easily (my striker is currently an 81 with many hours put in), and you'll still have a great deal to learn about how to actually play the game.

The reality is that lots of online players are going to level up their Be-A-Pro quite fast by using methods like this, and the amount of legwork that EA makes players put in just to gain a few unlock points is often quite egregious. Hours of gameplay still have to be put in for the method I outlined (including tons of time with human cooperation and competition), and I don't find it nearly as questionable as people buying better unlocks or high-level characters in games like NHL or Fight Night.

Still, if you enjoy the game on a single-player basis, you can level up your guy against stiffer competition and have everything last longer. To each their own, I'd say. The point of this article was to show how a Be-A-Pro can get to a decent level of skill with somewhat less time put in, especially since EA has some absurd milestones that you have to reach for very small rewards.

I feel like I've been playing forever and my Pro is only an 84 at CB and 81 at CAM. Will my rating go up if I complete the tasks as GK?

The easiest way to build your guy is through club play and pro ranked. I haven't "boosted" anything and I'm about 78% complete overall. I'm a 91 CB and an 89 CAM. I've started working on the goalie stuff recently and its coming pretty quickly via pro ranked.

A lot of people I know "boost" though. They especially abuse the sliders and set the difficulty to WC in order to make everything unlockable; however, like the OP stated, boosting is not everyone's cup of tea.
