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:
