How do you increase key passes?


Recommended Posts

I don't really know how to get more key passes and although my tactic does work really well I occasionally do think that my players (especially playmakers) have made more key passes then shown. Any advice?

I used the shoot on sight instruction before and it just wasted a lot of chances.

Key passes are a pass that leads to a shot, that's the only way to increase them 

Why do you want more of them anyway?

I was watching a Bustthenet video about how to win more games and looking for key passes was one of them, say if you have a key passes less than 2 for your playmaker then you may not win or dominate games like you should.

I disagree. If you watch the games you'll notice that the playmakers make the pass that leads to the key pass

I've not seen the video but does he mean the in game key passes or something else? You could put a playmaker on set pieces & he'll get 10 key passes no problem 

Quite often playmakers make the pass to the player who makes the key pass/assist too so it's nothing really to worry about

What about midfielders that don't have playmaker tendencies.

Same thing still applies?

I'm not completely sure what the question is

You cant; just increase key passes and voila your tactic is fixed. Key passes is just one metric I look for to see if my playmakers are doing well. There are also other things like pass completion, passes received (to see if the pm actually gets the ball).  I usually play a regista in one of my tactics, and he splits the field with his passing numbers with at least 3 key passes a game, but those come off the back of our system which sees him being protected 24/7, so he has more time to receive the ball and dictate play from deeper areas.

In my games my regista needs to make that pass to my IW  and my Winger who are now leading the league in assists, but i don't just depend on him. My IW is supported by a shadow striker that roams and supports him so that he has options. So one needs to look at the big picture too. perhaps you should post a pic of your tactic

No that's not what I meant just in general it seemed a bit low for my playmakers to be playing well and come out with a few key passes, my tactic prior to asking this question was doing really well so this isn't a big problem, I guess it is just me being precautious.

But thanks anyway.

I like to make sure that my playmakers have the "tries killer balls often" personal trait, if their attributes work with it of course. If that's the type of thing you mean
