eFootball 2023 has been steadily getting some decent updates starting from Season 3 which has been slowly upping the game of KONAMI’s popular football franchise. The recently announced plans via the 2023 Roadmap announcement also made it clear that they are willing to do the needful. Talking about the game, Attacking in eFootball 2023 has been slightly different, and players should be understanding the techniques better too. So, in this article, we shall be looking at the top 5 attacking tips and tricks that players should follow in eFootball 2023.
Top 5 attacking tips to follow in eFootball 2023
1. Utilizing the Radar view
In eFootball 2023, the Radar view is a graphical representation of the field that shows the location of all players, including your teammates and opponents. The radar view, which is located at the screen’s bottom side, allows you to quickly assess the position of all players on the field, giving you a better idea of the game’s flow and potential areas for attacking or defending.
This is a huge attacking advantage, as the players can quickly identify potential passing options or defensive gaps in eFootball 2023 by using the radar view. Players can time the passes well, say a player is running towards the goal, and the passes can connect and the players can loft or pass it through. Most players do not take this advantage, and hence do not get a clear view of the field.
2. Effective use of Pass and Move
The pass-and-move technique is something you don’t want to face. Most suggest the reason for this is lack of skill in other departments, but to be fair, it is part of the game for a reason. Apart from the usual 1-2s with the two CFs in a Counter Attack system which is the usual tactic by many, it works so beautifully well when you utilize it with your other players.
Suppose you are in a scenario where you need someone to run into the space but have no natural runners in that area. So you use one of your defensive players to do that work for you, trigger a run, get him to that space, and move the ball forward. This way, you make your team flexible.
3. Improving your First Touch
Had issues controlling the ball? Then take the first touch correctly! Most of the players like to dash against the ball’s direction, so it’ll end up being a heavy touch, and thus will work against you. So, to improve your first touch, don’t dash while collecting the ball. While you are about to receive it, just tap on the left side of your screen, and control the ball.
One more intelligent technique that many players fail to acknowledge is the Sharp Touch. It is the best way to escape the press, and open up space to get going with your sprint toward the goal. Many players use the Sharp Touch pretty well and they also are very effective in attacking.
4. Performing skill moves intelligently
Skill moves are not in the game for showboating. Sometimes, players love to dribble past the field using skill moves, and having fun are okay. But if you want to be more competitive, using the skill moves at the right time is a must.
There are plenty of skill moves in the game, with Double Touch, Flip Flap, etc. being the most effective ones to get past the opponent. Shielding the ball is also a skill, even though not a move, it really depends on how well you use it. We suggest players practice and work on these simple yet effective skills to get the best results.
5. Attack and Finish patiently
Patience is key to success, and this game is a fair reflection of it. What many players do is hurriedly attack, and because of this reason, most of the problems arise. Be it horrid finishing techniques, or shooting it directly to the keeper. Or in many scenarios where players just find themselves in defender traffic and complain their player isn’t good.
Being patient in attack gives a different dimension to your attacking system. Sometimes, while delaying a pass, your player runs might end up being accurate, and while collecting the ball, keep a two-second gap, and turn the player in the right direction before attempting it. While finishing, do not attempt the stunning shot in tight areas, just calmly pick a corner and slot it home. This way, you can calmly improve your gameplay without much of a hassle.
Bonus Tip: Selecting the right players
All this boils down to your team selection, surely. Having three forwards with high stats is not enough. For example, the most important shooting skill for a striker is First Time Shot. if you do not have this skill in your striker, then whenever you take the shot the first time, it will not be accurate, and in most cases will miss the target.
Wingers as well, players with no crossing skills no matter how good they are at passing won’t be able to whip in good balls inside the balls. This is why selecting players will be important, with three important aspects always kept in mind: Team Playstyle familiarity, Conditioning, and Form. Check these before you select your squad and before you get into the match, and you can see the results.
Attacking in eFootball has been a little different compared to the last PES series gameplay, and it is actually great to finally see the player’s skills being put to test. The dribbling is smoother but the skills aren’t easy to execute, but the additional tricks are really neat to pull off some nice moves against your opponent.
It requires a good amount of practice to make things work in eFootball, and the attacking in the game has got many options and skills that will help the player a lot. But still, many don’t use it in their favor, and thus, fail to score in many games. So, we suggest you to remember these tips and get your team running and winning!
