In EA FC 24, the acceleRATE system is getting an overhaul as the developers have added four new types to the game.
At the beginning of FIFA 23, the acceleRATE system was an important part of the meta across all modes as gamers found “Lengthy” players to perform better in-game.
Naturally, EA Sports adjusted the abilities of these players to make them less powerful. However, they still remained among the most effective players to use.
Now, more player types than ever before are in EA FC 24, and they will surely influence the meta once again.
EA FC 24 AcceleRATE 2.0 Explained
In EA FC 24, Explosive, Controlled, and Lengthy are the three base acceleRATE types. However, there are four types, that fall in between these categories:
- Controlled Explosive – 50% Explosive, 50% Controlled
- Mostly Explosive – 70% Explosive, 30% Controlled
- Controlled Lengthy – 50% Lengthy, 50% Controlled
- Mostly Lengthy – 70% Lengthy, 30% Controlled
Explosive players, like Vinicius Jr, are smaller, have more agility, and are able to reach their maximum speed rapidly. They are best in creating short gaps using their speed.
Lengthy players, such as Haaland, are taller and stronger, requiring more time to reach their top speed. They are best in long-distance sprints.
Players who are not in either the Explosive or Lengthy category are considered Controlled players.
AcceleRATE types are assigned based on a few characteristics of the player. Here’s a guide to help determine which category players belong to:
|acceleRATE Type||Height||Agility||Strength||Accleration||Agility vs Strength Difference|
|Explosive||Must be smaller or equal to ~ 5 foot 9||Must have 80 or more Agility||N/A||Must have 80 or more Acceleration||Must have 20 or more Agility than Strength|
|Mostly Explosive||Must be smaller or equal to ~ 6 foot||Must have 70 or more Agility||N/A||Must have 80 or more Acceleration||Must have 12 or more Agility than Strength|
|Controlled Explosive||Must be smaller or equal to ~ 6 foot||Must have 65 or more Agility||N/A||Must have 70 or more Acceleration||Must have 4 or more Agility than Strength|
|Controlled Lengthy||Must be taller or equal to ~ 5 foot 11||N/A||Must have 65 or more Strength||Must have 40 or more Accleration||Must have 4 or more Strength than Agility|
|Mostly Lengthy||Must be taller or equal to ~ 6 foot||N/A||Must have 75 or more Strength||Must have 55 or more Acceleration||Must have 12 or more Strength than Agility|
