Football game creators, EA Sports have announced that FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode is coming soon to iOS and Andriod. FIFA Mobile Manager Mode in FIFA Mobile 22 gives game players the opportunity to manage a club as a football manager instead of playing the FIFA Mobile 22 game controlling the players on the field. Players are also able to take to the touchline and fight to win matches while tweaking tactics and strategies. Fittingly, this is a breath of fresh air in FIFA Mobile. Hopefully, it will do a better job at keeping players satisfied in FIFA Mobile than Quick Career mode did.
As at on Thursday, July 2022, EA officially released a trailer of FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode. FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode had already been teased a few months back when EA accidentally added the Manager Mode feature into the FIFA Mobile 22 game on the ‘Division Rivals’ menu, it only took a few weeks for EA to remove it.
FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode Features
According to the announcement by EA Sports, FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode will feature tactics customization where players are able to selectively choose the team’s tactics, and customize strategies on the fly (or while in a match) such as changing tactics, mentality, passing range, and build-up speed. There is also a new camera angle for football matches in FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode.
Below are detailed information about all FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode features which will provide players with a broader menu of options to enjoy a personalized in-game experience.
FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode is primarily allows tactically organizing your team. Instead of playing Head to Head or VS Attack, you’ll be managing your team while watching them carry out your game plan. The manager mode is a fully automated mode. All you need to do is to choose your starting lineup and strategy, then start the game. You can queue up multiple matches using the Auto Match settings. In the Auto Match settings, you can choose from a number of options such as:
- Daily Match Rewards
- Daily Safety Rewards
- Amount of Points to reach
- Division to reach
After you’ve chosen your preferences, you can queue up continuous matches. That is, once you have completed a Manager Mode match, a countdown will begin automatically. You’ll enter a new match once the countdown is over. This continues until you either reach your desired settings (e.g., Pro Division) or cancel the Countdown. It’s an excellent choice if you want to “set and forget” your Manager Mode matches until you reach a certain point.
FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode focuses on tactics. These are the high-level strategies you choose for your squad both before and during the game. Your team’s playstyle will be influenced by the tactic you choose. There are four pre-defined tactics: offensive, controlling, defensive, and counter-offensive. If you start changing the specifics of a Preset Tactic, you are now developing a Custom Tactic. The tactic you choose is influenced by the game situation, your opponent, and your team’s strengths and weaknesses.
The Attacking Tactics in FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode will force your team into offensive positions. Your players will move up the field in the hopes of scoring quickly. Direct passes into dangerous positions will be sought after by your players. You run the risk of your midfielders being out of position during a change of possession, as well as being countered, so use this tactic with caution.
The Control Tactic focuses on maintaining possession and moving up the pitch methodically. Shorter passes will be made by your players while riskier passes will be avoided. Your players will seek out the best opportunity to break through the defense, but they will not force passes. This tactic is best suited for teams with technical players who can patiently break down a defense.
The counter tactic/Preset emphasizes sitting back and striking quickly. Once you retake possession, your players will make long through balls into open space to give your attackers somewhere to run. Your midfielder will make quick passes in an attempt to catch your opponent off guard. This strategy is most effective for teams with quick forwards and athletic midfielders.
The Defensive Tactic/Preset is all about being organized and disciplined at the back in order to prevent attacking opportunities. Your players will drop back and crowd the defensive third of the pitch, preventing your opponent from creating chances. When you regain possession, your players will try to relieve pressure by making long passes up to your attackers. Furthermore, this tactic will keep attacking runs to a minimum in order to maintain the shape of your formation. This tactic is best suited for teams that are outmatched or want to maintain their lead.
You decide on the Custom Tactic in FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode! You can make minor changes to the existing Tactics or completely redesign it to meet the needs of your team. There are numerous options for you to investigate and master. Create your Custom Tactic and save it in FIFA Mobile 22 Manager Mode before starting a match, or just create a different one in the middle of one!
