Do you have little time to play? no problem, adjust the match time to what you need. You also have two types of camera, smooth with sliding window, or fast fixed, try them and stay with the one you like best. Artificial intelligence is not up to you? Make it harder!

Tactics and squad menu:

In each match you can configure your favorite formation and select the most suitable players to face the match. Remember that the physical form of the players changes in each game. During the game you can change the players who are injured or have a yellow but never those sent off with red who will remain on the bench.


Per players stats:

Each player can have up to 3 points in each of the 6 stats.

SPD (speed): define the top speed of player.

AGR (Aggressive): define how long are the slides.

CTL (Control): define how far you can get the ball.

PWR (Power): define how strong you can shoot the ball.

SPR (Sprint): define the acceleration of player.

ACC (Accurate): defines the player's aim when shooting


Pitch type:

Normal: field lawn in perfect condition, standard physics and conditions.

Dry: a dry lawn can make the ball bounce more and tackles shorter.

Wet: With the field full of puddles the ball will not roll as fast.

Muddy: The mud will make this game hell, it will be difficult to control the players' tackles.

Frozen: Very slippery field, watch the ball or it will come out fast.


Match day:

CPC Soccer is very fast, we insist, very fast, but you will get used to its speed soon, it is easy to play although difficult to master.

Try to pass the ball and do tactics to deceive the goalkeeper, scoring goals will not be easy since the goalkeepers have trained a lot.

The goalkeepers are not perfect and make some mistakes, try to take advantage of the rebounds or try to catch the poorly placed goalkeeper to shoot on goal.

The game is played with a set ball (don't try to waste time). Be careful with the tackles or you will be expelled and you will run out of players quickly.

Good luck.
