  • FIFA for Life

     

    50

    Spend 50 hours on the pitch

  • How to unlock FIFA for Life

    For this achievement you must play matches for 50 hours. Any mode counts, except for UT! Ultimate Team does not count for the 50 hours! Unfortunately, there is no way in-game to see how much minutes you've already played.

  • Oh joy. This terrible achievement once again rears its ugly head.
  • I always get this eventually though ... 6 months down the line. Hopefully none of the secret achievements are play 500 games with your virtual pro though.
  • I still haven't got this in FIFA 11 yet. My controller cuts out during every match and it doesn't count towards the game time or accomplishments :(
  • @3 you need a new controller or leave it in the play and charge kit then
  • I looked at my stats on xbox.com and i've played this game for over 70 hours, but still don't have this achievement O.o can it be done using in with two people playing on the same console?
  • @5 The time counted for this achievement only counts when you're playing a match. In FIFA, it's easy to rack up hours off the pitch. Check the in-game statistics. You need 3000 minutes.
  • I'll hold judgement on this until the secret achievements are revealed!
  • @4 i do use the play and charge kit so it must be broke :/
  • @6 yeah I know it's only on the pitch that counts, but we have played ALOT of games on 8 mins each half, but i'll have a look and just keep playing I guess lol
  • This achievement would be better if there was a way of seeing your in-game time
  • Got this on FIFA 11, will get it again.
  • I got this in January for FIFA 11, god I'm a fifa nerd haha
  • does ultimate team count towards it this year?
  • @ 13. Should be. All modes should count as long you're in a match. So we have career, be a pro, UT, online right? Shouldnt be a problem I guess Anyway, does it include the Online Pass?
  • typo it's 500
  • In fifa 11 i got in at christmas night
  • Is UT included in this?
  • Miko88: It's a good question...
  • O dear not this again lol.
  • @#6 where do i find the in-game statistics???
  • In other words, play 600 5 minute games, and youll get the achievement popped.
  • is the pitch in a game???
  • I hope it include UT as it's all I've been playing
  • Look if you play fifa from now till fifa 13 you will eventually get it. Dont try to get it because that is stupid just get it by having fun playing the game.
  • #21 or 300 5min a half game so 10 min games. I have played about 250 games so far including UT so hopefully that counts and alot of online so hopefully they count also lol. It's not that bad of an achievement
  • If you arent doing anything just go on exhibition match set it as 20 minutes turn the tv on and leave the computer to do it all 3 times and you got an hour done already
  • I know someone or Ultimate Team can make a difference?
  • Has anyone actually unlocked this achievement yet? It's one fo the last ones I have to do.
  • I'm trying to figure out if Ultimate Team games apply or not, no one seems to know.
  • every mode except the scenario mode counts
  • I played 130 match in kick off mode, 200 match in UT and 15-20 ranked match. NO ACHIEVEMENT!!! :(
  • I've just worked out I've played a minimum of 60 hours on pitch, including 160 UT games and still no achievement, don't think UT is included :-(
  • I just counted, and if Ultimate Team that had been counted already and unfortunately I do not have
  • Confirmed UT not included. Now I need another 1500mins -,-" 20mins each half in Be a Pro for the next month.
  • someone please tell me how to find out how many games you have played. i really need to know, i have played so much of this game i just wanna know if i am close.
  • online games and FUT are 6mins per half so doing them it will take 500 games
  • Thats me just got this achievement COME ON 1 to go play 100 matches with any pro on UT 985G so far :D
  • 50 hours on pitch, real time or actual gameplay math time added together (90mins + 90mins ...)
  • I tell you something this achievement is bad. 300 games played on UT and 100 play on career and no achievement
  • well loads of my friends on our pro clubs have got this cheevo, i aint got it yet bu e time will be mounting up,
  • not again oh well will get it by the time fifa 13 is out
  • Anyone know if they count UT for this achievement?
  • UT is not included unfortunately eMiN10, which is rather annoying!
  • i can garuntee fifa 15's release before this is done
  • #43 Come on.. I have played over 200 matches in UT... btw how did you find out?
  • #43 I've played over 50 hours in total if I include my FUT times as well as games in other offline modes, and no achievement has popped up.
  • That previous comment should be for #45 lol
  • ultimate team does not count
  • Anyone know how to find out how many minutes theyve played?
  • I'm playing 20 halfs with two controllers for hours ... is these count ? I need someone to tell me PLZ .
  • Someone told me if I keep rematching the game I will be not earned the trophy .. is these true ? I rematch the game the hole time after the match ends .
  • Rubbish achievement
  • how do you foundout your statisticson xbox.com
  • if your opponent quits, does the time you have already played in that match count towards the achievement or does the match have to properly finish for the time to count?
  • Pointless achievement, they should've atleast input a feature where you can see how long you've played on the pitch so you can keep count
  • Righto Ultimate Team does not count Replaying Matches in Exhibition mode or any other mode DOES NOT count If your or opponenet leave a game that game time DOES NOT count Arena Time DOES NOT COUNT Pro Clubs, Head 2 Head Season, Manager Mode and Kick Off Mode DOES count The best way to do this is to set up a 20 min each way game in Kick Off Mode. Once the game has been completed then go back to the arena and then re-enter kick off mode and set up another 20 min each way game. Keep repeating this step If you does one 20 min each way game everday this is how it will work out
  • 20 min per half = 40 Min for 1 full match 40 mins x 7 days in a week = 280 mins 280 mins = 4.5 hours 4 weeks = 18 hours on pitch 8 weeks = 36 hours on pitch 10 weeks = 45 hours on pitch Then just play about 50 games of head to head seasons or Pro Club
  • if u pause the game does it still count?
  • in Fifa 10 this cheev0 popped up along with 3 others, and my game froze. Got like 350G when i restarted my XBOX, funny!!!
  • Here's a question: if I start a kick off game of 20min and a foul happened, the game stops until the player pass the ball. If I let the foul there, without pressing any button, will it count for the achievement?
  • yes, as in the end the ball is kicked :P
  • Lol this will take time
  • Finally got this one, i should have gotten 200G for this one! This took so ling to do!!!!! I was pissed when i found out Ultimate Team didn't count for this!
  • @63 totally agree i played 250 games on fut before i realised and have since played 200 games with my vp in pro clubs n still havent got it, last one i need aswell!!
  • I know this question has been asked a lot, so I apologise. But the answer to this question keeps on being changed as I go down the page, so I am asking for a definitive answer. Does Ultimate Team time contribute to this or not?
  • @65 sadly it does not, I would have this achievement if it did :(
  • If I play 20min/half time matches, do the settings need to be at standard? Or can i play against the cpu who's settings has been changed?
  • don't think your setting's really matter just as long as you clock the time up on the pitch.
  • also if you play at 4 mins a half it'll take about 310 games roughly.
  • Last one I need if only UT counted.
  • haha how do you find out your stats seeing how many games you've played D:
  • Is it all game modes, apparently UT doesn't work? If so then I must be so far from it, mainly play UT....
  • Same here 72 i always play UT and some head to head seasons and friendlies and perhaps pro clubs but ive played over 200 matches on UT so if UT doesnt count im screwed
  • Still ain't got this achievement, only one I need for all the achievements and i'm level 39 in the fifa level thingy. Looks like going to have to play career mode a bit more after reading the FUT doesn't work. Gutted
  • Last one I need played well enough on FUT aswell
  • If you have own created players the matches you play won't count except your VP
  • ooh yeah forgot, If you play matches with your own players.
  • last one and it's taking its time
  • spent 77 hours on the pitch, achievement still not popped :/
  • I've played 300+ games on FUT plus more on career, h2h etc yet this achievement hasn't unlocked... i must have spent a stupid amount of time on this game playing matches! stupid achievement
  • If I recover on a different Xbox will this count?
  • Does arena mode and training count towards the 50 hours?
  • @82 , its 50 hours on the pitch, so no.....
  • Brilliant, over 800 games on Ultimate Team and now I find out that it doesn't count...Looks like I'm going to have to get cracking on kick-off -.-
  • pain in the ass
  • Someone mentioned checking 'in-game statistics'. Where can I find that?
  • How do you check your in game statistics please
  • i have 64 hours overall and still didn't pop
  • Any word on whether the EURO DLC counts? I'm assuming no considering it's an expansion and UT mode (a similar module) doesn't count.
  • Does Euro 2012 count?
  • Hi, so if i use my Virtual Pro in manager mode, it doesnt count towards this achievment? that cant be right.. ?
  • Is their anyway you can find out how many hrs you played it's not like FiFa 11 where you can check how many hrs you have been on it plz let me knw becoz i really wnt 2 get it !!!
  • i`m not sure but does EURO 2012 count, too?
  • does anyone know if the Euro add on counts towards this aswell....
  • how do you check how many hours you have played already? i have been playing for what seems forever and still not got it yet!
  • 50 hours in game
  • I had this since release date and still hasn't popped :-( My Xbox Rewards status say I have played for 210 HOURS surely I haven't spent 160 hours browsing menu's. I normally play Career or Kick-Off (Had maybe 15 games in FUT) Worries me what @91 said in his comment, Is there any details that state you can't use your Virtual Pro for it to count?
  • Hoping to God that FIFA 13 doesn't have this crappy achievement on it. Got 44 out of 45 on the normal without the add on and this one just won't come up. Level 48 on the FIFA thing. Play career all the time. RUBBISH
  • #97 in Fifa 11, Using your Virtual Pro was fine in manager mode etc so I assume its the same for Fifa 12. I haven't got this acheivement and now spending a lot of time in Euro 2012. I'm hoping this counts but I have no idea. Has anyone seen the Fifa for life achievement pop whilst in Euro 2012? I can't be far away from this regardless but when I'm watching movies i'm gonna set up 20 min halves in be a pro exhibition and make sure i'm not on any corners or free kicks etc so it runs freely to half time. Therefore just need to press the A button to get going again and back to a film. Lazy but a good way if you'd rather spend some time doing something else.
  • If your a FIFA lover, then this achievement shouldn't be a problem.
  • It`s very long !
  • You need 3000 minutes to get this so if you play with 5 minutes halfs, then you will need 300 games
  • This. Is. Terrible....
  • I have played 361 H2H plus a bunch of normal career mode and still not popped
  • Wonderfull !! Ultimate Team doesn't count... crap
  • does any1 know if Euro 2012 DLC adds to this achievement I got a bad feeling it doesnt.
  • i want to know about euro 2012 too because I have played that loads and still no achievement :(
  • What is the pitch exactly?
  • Just watching movies and afk'ing 40minute games. Would play more euro 2012 but dont know if it counts :/
  • EURO 2012 hours count for this achievement? 53 matches x 6 min each at least. It should count! Plus career mode. Hope I am close to it!
  • This achievement is serious bullshit. Devs like EA and Epic seem to be seriously losing any creativity with this kinda thing. Almost every fifa on the 360 has had this achievement and it just shouldn't be here. I liked FIFA 08's achieves of winning various leagues. Stuff like that should be here, not this. It's just a poor way to keep you playing the game, but I want my 900G goddammit :p I'm wondering when exactly it unlocks. During the match or at full time. I've been playing 20min halves and watching tv while it plays on 2P exhibition.
