Introduction
FIFA 13 is a soccer game developed by EA. There game supports only single player. You can compete in leagues and championship cups, exhibition games, and penalty shootouts.

Step 1: Miscellaneous achievements
The first step will be to become familiar with the gameplay and to begin by knocking out each of the miscellaneous achievements. Most are very straightforward and this step will require one to two hours of your time to complete. You will need to win a total of three Quick Match games for the "Three" achievement. Make sure one of these is played on World Class difficulty for the "Stardom" achievement and that you match up two rival teams for one of them as well for the "Win the derby" achievement. You can attempt all of the other achievements while going for the three wins, but it will probably require a few additional games for some of them.

"Corner Maestro" and "Sniper" will be require some strategy and can be considered the most difficult achievements, though they are only difficult because they require a bit of luck. There is also one achievement, "Shot Stopper", that requires you to allow no goals in a Penalty Shootout, which can be selected from the Quick Match menu. See the individual achievements below for the best techniques to complete each one.

Step 2: Cup and League achievements
There are four achievements directly related to winning leagues and cups. You will need to complete an entire cup tournament and an entire league, winning each and every game therein. You will also need to complete and win the same league and same cup with two additional teams. In total this will entail completing around 100 matches and around four to six hours of your time. These can all be partially simulated. You should always intervene, even if you are winning so that you make progress towards completing Step 3.

Step 3: Grind to 200 matches played
The last achievement, "International Player", will require that you complete 200 matches. After complete Steps 1 and 2, you will have around 100 games already completed. You can grind out the last 100 by repeatedly simulating and intervening into league matches over and over. See "International Player" for more information. It total this will take around 4 hours and can be done passively.

Conclusion
FIFA 13 is a solid soccer experience on Windows Phone. The controls are smooth, albeit complicated to learn at times. The achievements are straightforward, but grindy in some cases. A few miscellaneous achievements may give you a bit of frustration, but following the tips given in the guide, that should be minimized.

[XBA would like to thank Arsenic 17 for this roadmap]



First Step5
Win your first match. 

This achievement simply requires that you win a single match by scoring more goals than your opponent. If the match ends in a draw, be sure to enter a Penalty Shootout to go for the win.

A Handful Of Goals15
Score 5 goals in a match - with the same player. 

This achievement requires that you score 5 goals in a single match with a single player. This is easily obtainable in any game. As soon as you switch to or pass to a player, their name will be displayed briefly. Focus on always passing the ball to the same player (one of your strikers is ideal), then sprinting down the field and shooting. Before the match starts, on the screen after selecting sides, you can change the length of the halves by adjusting the slider at the bottom. If you are concerned about not getting this, set the slider to the longest possible time, 10 minutes.

One on One5
Score after going 1 on 1 with the goalkeeper. 

This achievement requires that you score a goal while being one-on-one with the goalkeeper. On Beginner difficulty, take one of your attacking players with the ball and make a bee-line for the net. You need to pass all the defenders so that no one stands between you and the net. Then you shoot and beat the goalkeeper for the score. This is so easy it will come without effort, possibly being your first achievement.

Three 5
Win three friendly matches in Quick Match Mode. 

This achievement requires that you win a total of three matches in Quick Match mode. From the Main Menu, select Quick Match and the Kick-off. Choose two teams. Win three times to unlock this achievement. Any teams or the same teams can be used.

Win the derby5
Win a match between two rival teams. 

This achievement requires that you win a match between two rival teams. This can be done in Quick Match mode (exhibition games). Feel free to choose any two teams that are rivals. In the Barclays PL league, choose to play Manchester United vs. Manchester City. You can select to control either team. If you win, the achievement will unlock at the end of the match.

Skill Master10
Perform 5 different skill moves in a match. 

This achievement requires that you perform 5 different skill moves in a single match. Once you have the ball, you can use the "Skill Move" button to perform various moves. To perform them, you tap and hold the button, then drag your finger in a pattern within the on-screen grid and release. When you make a correct finger motion, that move will come on screen in yellow lettering above your player. You simply need to complete 5 different moves throughout an entire game. The achievement will unlock immediately. You must be actively running while performing the moves. If you are stationary, the move names will pop up, but they won't count. A list of some moves and their motions are below.

  • Step Over - Skill Move + Drag UP
  • Step Over Right - Skill Move + Drag UP then RIGHT
  • Step Over Left - Skill Move + Drag UP then LEFT
  • Lane Change Right - Skill Move + Drag RIGHT
  • Lane Change Left - Skill Move + Drag LEFT
  • Roulette Left - Skill Move + Drag LEFT then DOWN
  • Roulette Right - Skill Move + Drag RIGHT then DOWN
  • Rainbow Left - Skill Move + Drag LEFT then DOWN then RIGHT
  • Rainbow Right - Skill Move + Drag RIGHT then DOWN then LEFT
  • Go Back - Skill Move + DOWN
Extra hand 10
Call your GK into attack for a last minute corner! 

This achievement requires that you call your GK into the play for a last minute corner kick. For this achievement, you first need to get a corner kick at the very end of the game. See "Corner Maestro" for a good method to be awarded corner kicks. The timing needs to be at the very end of the game. It doesnt have to be in the very last minute, but in the final couple minutes of the game, or in stoppage time, try to get a corner kick. When the camera angle changes are you are able to take the kick, a button will come on screen in the top right corner of the screen that looks like a glove. Pushing this will call your goalkeeper into the play to help score. A short cut scene of the keeper running into the offensive zone will play. The achievement will unlock at this point before taking the kick.

Stardom 15
Win a game on World Class difficulty. 

This achievement requires that you win a game on the hardest difficulty setting, World Class. To change the difficulty, from the Main Menu, click on Help and Options. Now in the bottom left corner, you will see a blue button for Options. Click that. Then go to Game Settings and change the Difficulty Level to World Class. This difficulty is challenging if you are using two evenly-matched teams. However, in Quick Play, you have the option to play as a 5-star team against a 1-star team. Example: Match up Manchester United (Barclays PL league) against Admira (A. Bundesliga league). This will basically be like playing on Beginner and you should be easily able to win. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.

Pro player 10
Play 100 matches. 

See "International Player".

International player15
Play 200 matches. 

These achievements require that you complete a cumulative total of 50, 100 and 200 matches. All games in Quick Play and Tournament modes count toward these achievements. Penalty Shootouts do not. After finishing all achievements related to winning cups and leagues, you will have completed right around 100 games, with around 100 games left to go. The fastest method to knock these out involves simulating league games. Choose any league you want and make sure the half length is set to 2 minutes. Before starting each match, you will see the option to Simulate. Tap this and then choose Visual Sim. Dont be concerned with winning. You just need to complete you last 100 games. Watch the game clock above the score. You will want to push the checkmark and choose to intervene around the 85 to 88 minute mark. Load in and wait the clock out for less than 30 seconds to get credit for completing a game. You must intervene, simply simulating the entire game will not count. Do this through the entire league and repeat when the league ends until you reach 200 and unlock the final achievement, "International Player". Each match will take around 2 or 3 minutes to complete, meaning these final 100 matches will take around 4 to 6 hours to complete.

You can check your progress towards this achievement from within the Leaderboards by summing up your total wins, loses, and draws.

Amateur player5
Play 50 matches. 

See "International Player".

One-Two Master5
Score a goal after successfully pulling an one-two move. 

This achievement requires that you score a goal after completing a successful one-two pass. A one-two pass is basically a give-and-go, but has a specific button sequence to perform it. First, when you have the pass, tap the pass button and hold, drag your finger to the right onto the sprint button, then release. This will pass the ball towards another player on your team. When the ball is on the way, tap the pass button again. As soon as the other player receives the ball, he will immediately pass it back to your original player. Then proceed to score a goal to unlock this achievement. If this is confusing, see Help and Options from the Main Menu, then Controls. One of the tutorial demonstrations is the one-two pass. This achievement was a bit glitchy. It took several correct attempts of the one-two pass to finally unlock the achievement. If it doesn't unlock, just keep at it.

Trifecta 15
Win the same league with 3 different teams. 

This achievement requires that you win the same league with three different teams. To start a league, from the Main Menu, select Tournament>Start Tournament. Here you will be presented with a side-scrolling list of leagues and cups. The shortest league to play is the Australia A-League, which only has 27 games. Before starting each match, you will see the option to Simulate. Tap this and then choose Visual Sim. Your first time through the league, make sure to win every single game to unlock the "Perfect League" achievement. Watch the game clock above the score. You will want to push the checkmark and choose to intervene around the 85 to 88 minute mark if you are winning. Load in and wait the clock out for less than 30 seconds to get credit for completing a game. If you are tied or losing, intervene sooner so that you have enough time to score a few goals to secure the win. If at any point you are about to finish a game without winning, simply power cycle your device to prevent the game from auto-saving (which occurs after each game). If you have GDR3 update for Windows Phone, you can simply hold the back button to bring up the multi-tasking screen and then tap the "X" to close FIFA 13.

Once you earn the "Perfect League" achievement, choose the same league again, but use a different team. Use the same simulation process. Now you do not necessarily have to win each game however. You only need to finish first in the standings after the 27 games to win the league. You can check your position in the standings by selecting Stats Central>Tables from within the league menu. 3 points are awarded for a win, 1 point for a draw, and no points for a loss. Remember to always intervene, even if you are winning, so that you get credit towards playing 200 matches for the "International Player" achievement. After winning the league for the third time with a third team, that achievement will unlock.

Three Cups10
Win the same Cup with three different teams. 

This achievement requires that you win the same cup with three different teams. To start a cup, from the Main Menu, select Tournament>Start Tournament. Here you will be presented with a side-scrolling list of leagues and cups. The shortest cup to play is the German Deutscher Pokal, which only has 5 games. Before starting each match, you will see the option to Simulate. Tap this and then choose Visual Sim. Make sure to win every single game to win the cup. Doing this one time will unlock the "Perfect Cup" achievement. Watch the game clock above the score. You will want to push the checkmark and choose to intervene. If you are tied or losing, intervene sooner rather than later so that you have enough time to score a few goals to secure the win. If at any point you are about to finish a game without winning, simply power cycle your device to prevent the game from auto-saving (which occurs after each game). If you have GDR3 update for Windows Phone, you can simply hold the back button to bring up the multi-tasking screen and then tap the "X" to close FIFA 13.

After winning the cup ones, choose the same cup again, but use a different team. Use the same simulation process. You must win every game to win the cup. Remember to always intervene, even if you are winning, so that you get credit towards playing 200 matches for the "International Player" achievement. After winning the same cup for the third time with a third team, that achievement will unlock.

Perfect Cup 10
Win all games in a predefined Cup tournament. 

See "Three Cups".

Perfect League10
Win all games in a predefined League tournament. 

See "Trifecta".

Corner Maestro15
Score directly from a corner kick. 

This achievement requires that you score directly from a corner kick and is one of the trickier achievements in the game. Corner kicks are awarded when the ball crosses the offensive end line and goes out of bounds, having last been touched by an opponent. The easiest way to get corner kicks to the dribble the ball down near the goal line. Then come in towards the net from a bad angle and take a shot. More often than not, the ball will be saved by the goalie, but will deflect out of bounds, awarding you a corner kick.

To score directly from a corner kick, the player taking the kick must be awarded the goal. Once you enter the corner kick camera angle, swipe left or right to rotate the camera until you are shooting directly along the goal line, or just a shade off the line. Then just swipe straight up towards the net as fast as you can. With any luck, the ball will either go directly in, or bounce of the goalkeeper and go in. Either one will unlock this achievement. This will likely take many many attempts to unlock. It really requires more luck that skill. Earning a corner kick is very easy, so this achievement shouldn't take too long to obtain.

Sniper 10
Score from an offensive free kick. 

This achievement requires that you score from an offensive free kick. This is one of the trickier achievements in the game. An offensive free kick must be taken from the offensive zone (on your opponent's side of the center line). From the free kick, you must shoot and score. Free kicks are awarded when the other team commits a foul.

The tricky part about this achievement is that the opposing team rarely commits fouls, and when they do, it usually won't put you in a good position to score. The best strategy for this is to first make sure you set the difficulty to Beginner and then play as a 5-star team against a 1-star team. Then you should sprint through the defense to get to a situation where you are one on one with the goalie. As you enter the penalty box, the keeper will charge you. At this point, you need to turn around and start running away from the goalie. The keeper will chase you. Go slow and bait him to continue following you if he seems to start going back to the net. If you got him to follow you well enough, he will chase you out of the penalty box. When he is about to get close to you make sure you are moving with the ball. The keeper is very aggressive and will dive face first to grab the ball. At least 50% of the time, if you are touched in any way by the keeper and trip, it will be a foul. The key is to lure the keeper out. It may take some practice, but once you get a hang of how the keeper moves and speed you need to pull away from him, he will constantly be chasing you out into free kick territory. See my video below for the technique. Sorry for the bad quality!

When you finally do earn the free kick, you will be presented with a wall of defenders blocking your shot to the goal. They will only be able to cover part of the net. Look for the larger opening to the net, either to the right or left of the wall. The goalkeeper should be occupying that position. You will need to precisely place your shot into the upper corner of the net. Drag your finger from the ball directly to the corner of the net where you want to score. Put a little zip on it to increase your chances of scoring (by swiping faster). However, on Beginner difficulty, you should have no problem scoring as long as your placement is good. The goalkeeper is unlikely to save the shot. As soon as the ball hits the back of the net, the achievement will unlock.

Tiki Taka10
Make 20 consecutive passes in the opponent's half. 

This achievement requires that you make 20 consecutive passes in the opponent's half. This is easy to obtain on Beginner difficulty with a 5-star team against a 1-star team. Dribble the ball into the offensive half of the field. Then proceed to make 20 consecutive passes. The opponent cannot touch the ball and the ball cannot cross back onto your half of the field (over the center line). Set the half length to larger value if need be. There is no time constraint. Be cautious and only pass to open teammates. You can dribble around as much as you please between passes. The achievement will unlock immediately when you make the 20th pass successfully.

Shot stopper 15
Win the Penalty Shootout without conceding any goals. 

This achievement requires that you win a Penalty Shootout without conceding a single goal. From the Main Menu, choose Quick Match and then Penalty Shoot-Out. You will want to play as a good team and match up again a bad team. Choose Real Madrid (in the Liga BBVA league) for your team (you should be the team on the left), and oppose FC Lausanne (in the Raiffeisen SL league). This will ensure you have the better shooters and goalkeeper.

You will need to save 100% of the other team's shots and win the shootout, regardless of how many rounds the game goes. As long as you save every shot, the achievement will unlock. The easiest way to do this is to score on your first three shots and save the first three shots by the opponent, ending the game after three rounds and unlocking this achievement.

Saving the ball in this game is fairly luck-based. As the opponent is moving to shoot, you will need to choose a direction for your goalkeeper to attempt a save. Tap your goalkeeper and drag to the location in the net you want him to dive. You cannot wait until the shot is on the way as it will be too late. You must guess before the shot is taken. If you are playing against a bad opponent, it is best to dive either low left or low right, as the shooters will rarely be able to pick an upper corner. If at any point you concede a goal, pause and restart. After starting, the shooters will often make the same shot the just took, so use that to your advantage to dive the correct direction.

Scoring is fairly simple in this game. All you need to do is drag your finger from the ball to the exact location in the goal where you want to put it. The faster you drag, the more power the shot will have. Aim for the upper left or right corners of the net. This will result in a goal 90+% of the time, even if you lob the ball slowly. You should have no problem earning this achievement in a couple of tries.
