How to throw a lobbed pass in College Football 25
How to throw a lobbed pass in College Football 25 In College Football 25 , passes are not one-size-fits-all. Sometimes you might need to zip the ball right into the receiver's hands, sure. But if your wideout is shooting off towards the end zone, a lobbed pass might be more fitting. A lobbed pass can float the ball downfield, landing it high and right in your receiver's hands if timed well. As you spend more time with the game, you'll learn the right times to opt for it over other passes, and how to nail the reception. Here's how to start tossing a few in your game. How to do a lob pass in College Football 25 Throwing a lob pass is pretty similar to performing a bullet pass, but there's one extra button that needs to be pressed. Press the L1/LB button and hold on to it. Press the icon button of the receiver. There's a fundamental difference - you don't have to wait for the power to reach the yellow zone. On most occasions, your power bar will be filled between 20-25% while attempting a lob pass. This is different from a bullet pass, where you try to let go when the power bar is in the yellow zone. This is due to the trajectory of a lobbed pass. A bullet pass is flat and has a lot more velocity. A lobbed pass is like throwing the ball high up in the air at the cost of velocity. This pass is a lot slower but travels to more extended heights as well. The extra height helps the receiver get up in the air and make a play, or get out ahead of defenders. Image via Destructoid When to do a lob pass in College Football 25 In my early days with the game, I concluded that mastering the lob pass is quite tricky. This is partly because the game didn't tell me that there was this option to begin with (ignore my novice-ness for a moment). Part of the difficulty lies in processing when to opt for this pass. Sometimes, you'll find your runners have a step on their defender. A fade route or deep slant can end up getting way out ahead of coverage. The lob pass ideally targets them where they'll be, trying to land the pass in-step with a runner that's made some space. It's a strong mechanic to get the ball in a receiver's hand and past the defense. Like all mechanics in College Football 25 , make sure to hit the Practice mode to try this pass out. Once you master the lob pass, the available options in the offense will increase significantly. Sure, it will take time, and a few failures as well, but the rewards are definitely worth the lessons.

EA FC 24: How to get Matt Targett FUTTIES card for free
EA FC 24: How to get Matt Targett FUTTIES card for free The Matt Targett FUTTIES card is now live in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team, and you can add it to your squad for free. This is possible as Targett is part of the latest objective set in Ultimate Team. There are few tasks that you'll need to complete first. All the tasks have different conditions as well that you'll have to complete while playing matches. Let's take at look at how to unlock the item, and if it's even worth the grind. EA FC 24 Matt Targett FUTTIES objective tasks There are four tasks in this objective set. You can complete them in any order, but some will finish faster. Target Man: Score 3 Finesse goals in Squad Battles matches on Min. Semi-Pro difficulty (or Rivals/Champions). Superb Vision: Assist 3 goals using a player with Min. 90 PAS in Squad Battles on Min. Semi-Pro difficulty (or Rivals/Champions). Play 4: Play 4 matches in Squad Battles on Min. Semi-Pro difficulty (or Rivals/Champions). Win 4: Win 4 matches in Squad Battles on Min. Semi-Pro difficulty (or Rivals/Champions) while having Min. 3 players from England in your starting 11. The best place to complete the tasks are in Squad Battles. You can control the difficulty level of the matches, and also go up against AI-controlled opponents. This makes it very easy to complete the tasks, especially if you aren't playing your best players. The 94-rated LB item that you get is pretty interesting. While it's behind the current power-curve, the item can also operate as a LWB, CDM, and CM. With 5* Weak Foot, I would play this item at CM. Incidentally, the card also doesn't have a single defensive playstyle. However, the presence of Whipped Pass+, Pinged Pass+, and Incisive Pass+ really make it an interesting choice to consider in EA FC 24 .

EA FC 24: How to complete Jay-Jay Okocha and Kanu Dynamic Duo FUTTIES SBC
EA FC 24: How to complete Jay-Jay Okocha and Kanu Dynamic Duo FUTTIES SBC The Jay-Jay Okocha and Kanu Dynamic Duo FUTTIES SBC is now live in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team, and it's a really interesting set to consider. The Dynamic Duos SBCs have returned to Ultimate Team after a long time. You can unlock up to two special Hero items by completing the challenges. Let's take a look at how easy or difficult is it to unlock them in the first place. EA FC 24 Jay-Jay Okocha and Kanu Dynamic Duo FUTTIES SBC tasks The Jay-Jay Okocha and Kanu Dynamic Duo FUTTIES SBC has two separate challenges. Both challenges have a single task each. Between the two, Kanu is easier and cheaper to obtain. Task 1 - Jay-Jay Okocha Min. 1 Players: Any TOTS or TOTW Min. Team Rating: 88 Task 2 - Kanu Min. Team Rating: 86 EA FC 24 Jay-Jay Okocha and Kanu Dynamic Duo FUTTIES SBC solutions If you obtain both cards, it's going to cost you about 150,000 coins in terms of fodder value. Task 1 - Jay-Jay Okocha Mapi Leon: 89 Irene Paredes: 88 Victor Osimhen: 88 Mikel Oyarzabal: 88 Marie Katoto: 88 Jan Oblak: 88 Cucho Hernandez TOTS: 88 Lucy Bronze: 87 Lina Magull: 87 Gianluigi Donnarumma: 87 Lea Schuller: 86 Task 2 - Kanu Fabinho 84 Gabriel Megalhaes 84 Dani Parejo 86 Gregor Kobel 87 Niklas Sule 84 Ewa Pajor 87 Thomas Muller 84 Luka Modric 87 Romelu Lukaku 84 Leroy Sane 84 Martin Odegaard 87 I like the look of both cards, but here's what I don't understand. The FUTTIES season is all about grinding big SBCs due to surplus fodder. Both Kanu and Okocha's FUTTIES items are well-worth their prices. However, most members in the community already have better cards in their positions. If you're a beginner, you could go for the duo to upgrade your squad.
