Pro Clubs Seasons

From the manual:

Pro Clubs Seasons

Join or create a Pro Club to play alongside friends and other FIFA 14 gamers in up to 11v11 online play.

With your club, you can compete in 10 games per season and try to gain promotion through the league divisions. Create and grow your online Pro by competing in Club or Drop-In matches, and earn accomplishments to unlock better attributes, unique traits, gameplay celebrations, and kit upgrades. Teamwork is key if you're going to score goals, win matches, and create the best Pro player possible.

When you first come in here you will be given some blurb about what Pro Clubs is:

Welcome to Pro Clubs!

Download your Game Face

Visit www.easportsfootballclub.com to create a Game Face. Select Download Game Fave from the My Pro menu to apply your face to your Pro.

Grow your Pro

You will start as a Free Agent, and can play Drop-In matches to start unlocking accomplishments which will give you increased Attributes, Traits, Celebrations and Kit upgrades.

Join a Pro Club

Join a world of pros & managers in 11v11 Pro Club mode. Meet other Pros playing drop-in matches & become an online star.

Then you'll be prompted to create your Pro. You get to edit your information

  • First name
  • Surname
  • Known as (if you want a nickname)
  • Commentary name (choose a name from the database)
  • Kit name
  • Team (Free Agents at the beginning)
  • Kit number
  • Nationality
  • Birth year
  • Birth month
  • Birth day

You can edit your appearance:

  • Download and apply game face
  • Hair
  • Eyes
  • Complexion
  • Brows
  • Ears
  • Nose
  • Cheeks
  • Mouth
  • Jaw
  • Chin

You can edit your position and you can edit your physical options.

Your choices such as height and position will vary your start-out attribute stats. But this time choosing a 5'2" height will not make your player super pacey as EA have neutralised the impact of being at the extremes so that somewhere in the middle is the optimum now, just like how in real-life most players are of a similar height.

You can re-edit your Pro later if you are not happy with anything, or want to apply something that is currently locked.

You can unlock accessories and traits and improve your attributes by completing accomplishments. A full list of these is available in the Online Pro Accomplishments Tracker section below.

You can also purchase boots for your Pro, and attribute boosts from the EAS FC Catalogue.

Now you have made your Pro there are four tabs to the menu system here:

  • My Pro
  • Club
  • Manage
  • Leaderboards

My Pro

Under My Pro you can play a drop-in match, see your Pro's stats (games played, goals, assists, shots, man of the match, average rating), your attributes and your My Pro edit option.

By clicking on the Drop-in Match option you can play a match as your Pro even if you don't have a club. These matches are limited to 5 players on each team and all are fixed to a position, i.e. no-one can play as any.


My Pro statistics

By clicking on the Statistics box you get more detailed statistics of your games played as your Pro.

You can see you stats by position (all, forward, midfielder, defender, goalkeeper), and your form over the last 10 matches.

The Attributes button will show your attributes plus any uplift you have obtained thus far. By clicking on this you will get to see all the accomplishments as in the Online Pro Accomplishments Tracker section, and your progress against them.

Also here is the My Pro button that will allow you to edit your Pro.

Under the Club tab you can join or create a club. If you are in a club then here there will be four options:

  • Play Match
  • Play Cup Match (provided the window is open)
  • Current season
  • History

Play Match - Here you can play a club match. You'll be taken into the match lobby. You need at least one other team-mate here to play. You can choose to play a particular position, or as any in which case you control everyone bar the players your teammates are controlling. You can even have 11v11 matches. One of you will be team captain where you have control over team management aspects.

The matches you play here work like in Seasons, so are league matches where you get three points for a win, 1 for a draw and 0 for a loss. You start in division 10 and try to make it to division 1.

Play Cup Match - If a cup window is open then you can view the tournament tree here and play a cup match.

The cups start with 16 teams matches up in knockout matches. After that set of matches it is the quarter-finals, then the semi-finals and then the final. To win the cup you need to win the final.

If the cup window isn't open then it will tell you when the next cup is playable. If the cup window is open it will also tell you how much longer the cup window will remain open for.

The cups you can play in depend on the league you are in:

DivisionCup
Division 1 or 2Premier Cup
Division 3, 4 or 5Continental Cup
Division 6, 7 or 8EA Cup
Division 9 or 10EA Shield

Current season - This shows where your club are in the current season. Each season has 10 games. And the promotion, title and relegation lines will be shown so you know how many points you need. By clicking on it you can see the clubs you recently played and their honours.

History - shows your history, like your club's promotions, relegations and cups. By clicking on this you can view the club's trophy room.

The Manage tab has the following options:

  • Transfers
  • Message Board
  • Squad
  • Leave Club

The main thing here is the Squad option. The Squad option will show you the gamertags of all your teammates, along with their games played, their win percentage, their goals, their assists, their defender clean sheets, their goalkeeper clean sheets, their shots on target percentage, their total passes and pass percentage and their total tackles and tackle percentage.

The Leaderboards tab is the place to go to view clubs. It allows you to view friend's clubs too, allowing you to easily join if you wish. Pros also have a leaderboard by position so you could use this to recruit too.

Online Pro Accomplishments Tracker

Below are the accomplishments you can complete to improve your Pro. These can be gained either through your club matches, or in drop-in matches. Sometimes the accomplishments don't save. I think this is after matches where one of the players at the start quits part-way through, so if all the starting players remain until the end you should get the stats for the match reflected.

You can also purchase attribute increases from the EAS FC Catalogue.

Online Friendlies

From the manual:

Online Friendlies

Invite a friend to play a match online, and track your rivalry to prove who has the most skills on the pitch in five game seasons. Earn the most points in five games to hoist the trophy, and then keep the competition going with the next season as you try to defend your title!

Clicking in here will show you your friends list and their online status. If they are online you can start or continue a season with them. The seasons are 5-games long, but can finish earlier (e.g. one of you wins the first three games meaning the other player can't win the season through the remaining two games as they could only gain a maximum of 6 points so the season ends).

If your friends aren't online you can view your stats against them. It will show your current season, the title holder, the number of wins, and the all-time W-D-L records.

Skill Games

From the manual:

Skill Games

Improve your football skills by completing challenges that test specific manoeuvres such as chip shots, free kicks, and dribbling. As you master these abilities, you unlock Skill Challenges to become Legendary at each proficiency. Compare yourself to friends and others on the leaderboards for extra motivation as you progress through the levels!

This section takes you through learning the basics of the game and is therefore the best place to start your FIFA experience, to learn new skills, or to refresh on old skills.

To select your player you can go to the Skill Games tile and move RS right for Select Arena Player. Alternatively you can go to Customise>Settings>Select Arena Player. This doesn't let you choose a goalkeeper though so for the goalkeeper challenges the goalkeeper of the arena player's club will be chosen. If you aren't happy with this then go to Customise>Settings>Select Arena Goalkeeper.

There are 13 sets of skill games. In each set you start with the Bronze Skill game. Once you have passed that you unlock the silver level, then the gold level, and then finally the Skill Challenge level.

You can also compare your score against your friends or the world by pressing LT/RT on the description of the particular skill game at the practice hub. Your progression will also be monitored so you know how near you are to unlocking the next stage, or what your top score is on the skill challenge if you have already unlocked that.

Ground Pass

Learn how to choose a pass receiver, about different assistance levels, and practice your timing in the ground pass skill games. Once you are comfortable with the controls, see how well you can do in the Skill Challenge.

For these challenges you need to choose someone with good Short Passing, Long Passing and Curve attributes.

Bronze Level

In this drill try to pass the ball to the mini net that is highlighted. Use LS to aim toward your desired target, and A to power up the pass. When multiple nets are in a similar direction you can pass to the farther mini net by powering up for longer, and the closer mini net by not powering up as much.

In this drill there are seven mini nets. There is a ball feeding machine in front of you which will feed you balls. You need to hit the highlighted nets in the order they are highlighted. The best way to do this is to keep an eye on the arrow by your feet that you are directing with LS as this is the direction the pass will go in. Press and hold A and let go when the direction is good. Also be careful not to dribble the ball outside the highlighted area, although you can dribble within the area to get into a better position to play your pass.

You start with 12 attempts and 1 minute 30 seconds. You need to get 5,000 points to pass the challenge. For each mini net you score in you get 500 points. You also get bonus points for the amount of time left, plus the number of attempts you didn't use.

Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Silver Level

In this drill, try to pass the ball to the mini net that is highlighted, without hitting any of the moving players. Use LS to aim toward your desired mini net, and A to power up the pass. When multiple nets are in a similar direction you can pass to the farther mini net by powering up for longer, and the closer mini net by not powering up as much.

In this drill there are six mini nets behind some rails with player cutouts on that move back and forth along the rails. Each mini goal will be highlighted in turn in a random order. So direct your passes to the mini nets whilst timing them so as not to hit the moving player cutouts. Again concentrate on the arrow at your feet that you are directing, and also try not to dribble out of the area.

You start with 12 attempts and 1 minute 30 seconds on the clock. You need to get 4,000 points to pass the challenge. For each mini net you get the ball into you get 500 points. You also get bonus points for the amount of time left, plus the number of attempts you didn't use. If you hit a player cutout you lose 200 points.

Congratulations, you reached the Silver target and unlocked Gold! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Gold Level

In this drill, try to pass to the highlighted mini net. You will have 16 balls randomly launched at you and 16 mini nets to score on. Assistance is set to Manual. Extra points will be awarded if you score closer to the centre of the mini net. The more touches of the ball before you pass, the less points you will get.

In this drill you start in the centre circle. There are four ball feeders located around it with 16 mini nets. The balls will be fed to you randomly from the feeders and a mini net will be highlighted that you need to pass the ball into. Try to do a one-time pass for more points. The mini nets can repeat.

You start with 16 attempts and 1 minute 30 seconds on the clock and you need to get 8,000 points to pass the challenge. For each mini net you pass into you get points. You get more points for hitting them centrally, and also for passing into them by taking a minimum amount of touches before hitting your pass. However it is much easier to pass this challenge if you do take multiple touches before making sure you put the ball in the correct net.

You also get bonus points for the amount of time left at the end.

Congratulations, you reached the Gold target and unlocked the Skill Challenge! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Skill Challenge

Try to keep the ball away from the defenders for as long as possible. Only first time passes will be allowed. For each consecutive pass you will be awarded points. More points are given for fancy passes and nutmegs.

In this one you control four guys in yellow bibs, and have to pass it amongst yourselves using only first time passes within the highlighted area, whilst keeping the ball away from the defender in the blue bib. Obviously the fancy passes get you more points but are harder to pull off so you may want to keep it simple until you get really good before attempting them. Good luck.

To get Legendary on this you need 8,000 points.

Ground Pass

Practice your passing with 'Manual' assistance in more complex scenarios. Be creative and try combinations of first time passes and triangle passing in the Skill Challenge.

For these challenges you need to choose someone with good Short Passing, Long Passing and Curve attributes.

Bronze Level

In this drill, try to pass to your teammate following the blue arrows and not hitting any of the poles. Use LS to direct and A to power up... Once you have passed through the last pole, you will see a Defender and Goalkeeper. Beat them and score. Make sure your teammate is close enough to you at all times, otherwise the drill will finish.

In this drill there are ten poles laid in a straight line on the pitch with gaps between them. On one side is one player, and on the other is the other player. You'll both jog along passing through the gaps in the poles in the way the blue arrows indicate. If you get out of sync you can try and speed up or slow down the player who is out of sync (easier to slow down).

Once through the last gap the defender and goalkeeper become active and you need to try and use your two players to score a goal.

You start with 1 attempt and 1 minute on the clock. You need to get 8,000 points to pass the challenge. For each successful pass you get points. You also get points for scoring (2,000) and skilling the defender or goalkeeper (1,000). You also get bonus points for the amount of time left. You lose points for hitting a pole (-500).

Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Silver Level

In this drill, use LS to aim your pass and A to power it up. Follow the arrows to complete passes to your teammates. Don't trap the ball as you must pass on the go. After you have passed through your last arrow attempt a first time shot into the net. For this challenge passing settings will be on manual.

This drill is similar to the last in that you move along a line passing the ball through gates, except this time on the other side are 6 teammates rather than just one who jogs along with you. Also the gates are wider and formed by cones and not poles and all the passes need to be done first time or the drill ends. Try and pass as the arrows indicate. Then after this section take a first time shot at the goal, hopefully hitting one of the five targets in it. Don't hit passes too hard as they will go outside the highlighted area and the drill will end.

You start with 1 attempt and 25 seconds on the clock. You need to get 7,000 points to pass the challenge. For each gate you get the ball through you get 300 points. You get 200 points for finding the correct man, and also points for hitting a target at the end with your shot. You also get bonus points for the amount of time left. You lose points (-500) if you pass to a man you passed to already.

Congratulations, you reached the Silver target and unlocked Gold! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Gold Level

In this drill, pass to your teammate and make sure the pass goes through the gate. The gate and the zone will slowly shrink. For extra points, use the first time passes or pass the ball right through the centre of the gate. Try to align your pass by using LS to aim and A to power it up.

In this drill there are two players in two separate highlighted areas and a gate between them that the ball needs to be passed through. The gate and the areas get shorter as time passes. The best thing to do is concentrate on getting your LS pointing directly up and directly down as you deliver your passes, and to do the passes first-time..

You start with 1 minute and 30 seconds on the clock and you need to get 7,500 points to pass the challenge. For each pass through the gate you get 200 points, for a first time pass you get an additional 100 points and for getting the pass through the very centre of the gate you get an additional 150 points.

Congratulations, you reached the Gold target and unlocked the Skill Challenge! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Skill Challenge

Try to keep the ball away from the defenders for as long as possible. For each consecutive pass you will be awarded points. More points are given for the first time passes, fancy passes, really long passes, and nutmegs. And of course, for this skill challenge passing settings will be on "Manual".

This time you are control 7 teammmates that are stationed around four defenders. You need to try and pass it amongst the seven whilst staying in the area and keeping it away from the defenders. You get points for passes, and based on the types of pass too. Good luck.

To get Legendary on this you need 20,000 points.
