Learning FIFA 14 formation tactics for a good counter attack can change the way you score goals forever and learning how to push players forward at the correct time can rapidly increase the amount of goals you get. There’s some minor changes some gamers can make to become a much better player in a short period of time.

If you have been playing FIFA 14 since launch and played most of the other versions, you might not have studied the different skills and button combinations to change tactics quickly. If this sound like you, then we wanted to feature a couple of videos that might help and point Product Reviews readers to some basic abilities that aid in vital moments of play.

The chip through ball tactic in FIFA 14 is one of the most common ways to perform a counter attack and score goals after you have conceded a goal. This will be one style of play most people pick up without any instruction, but by making a tiny change to this style of play you can gain more goals thanks to players being in place just as seen in some real football games.

Below this article you can watch two FIFA 14 gameplay videos offering a walkthrough of counter attack tactics, they both explain how to counter attack in FIFA 14 using the direction pad. In a nutshell, clicking down on the D-Pad twice at the correct moment can really help to put your players in the correct place and add pressure when trying to counter attack.

Of course, there’s a lot more explained in these videos and not just the power of quick tactical changes using the D-Pad. While some of you might be using this feature already, it has amazed us with the amount of players that don’t use many of the features available to them in FIFA 14.

The best FIFA 14 formation for counter attack? This is a question that will have many answers from FIFA 14 gamers, and while some people like to use the formations 4-2-3-1 (2) and 4-3-2-1 to counter attack, our favorite has to be 4-2-2-2. We would love to hear from FIFA 14 players about their favorite formation for counter attack, so leave a comment below this article and take a look at the videos for further details from a couple of viewpoints.

It is not for everyone, but personally I can’t get enough of the chip through ball and the amount of people I’ve played that get caught out by this tactic all the time just adds to the fun.
