FIFA 18: 3 hilariously effective ways to deal with Ultimate Team trolls

Silence the haters once and for all with these brilliant tips

Trolling, flaming… call it what you want, but FIFA 18 is full of it.

Whether it’s dabbing after a goal or pausing the game when you’re through on goal, the variations are almost endless.

Thankfully, for the FIFA 18 Ultimate Team players among you, we’ve pulled together three ways to deal with them.

And to keep this in spirit of the game, we’ve broken it up to include Alex Hunter style ‘fiery’ and ‘cool’ responses.

Let’s take a look at the first.

1. Right back at you (fiery)

There’s no better feeling than scoring a goal and celebrating – especially if you’re playing against a troll.

However, there are three celebrations almost guaranteed to cause a rage quit.
Pogba’s ‘Dab
The dab is arguably the most annoying celebration in the game – and is great to wind up someone who keeps scoring sweaty goals.

How to pull it off: Hold RB / R1 and double tap Y / Triangle.

The Scorpion

Olivier Giroud’s famous heel flick is another good way to anger a troll.

How to pull it off: Hold LT / L2, flick right stick right and then left/Hold L2 / LT and flick R3 right and then left.

Stir the pot
This move was inspired by the NBA star James Harden. It looks ridiculous but is guaranteed to leave trolls livid.

How to pull it off: Hold LT / L2 and double tap Y / Triangle.

2. Pay them a compliment (cool)

Trolls may be throwing abuse at you but chances are they’re just after an angry reaction.

There’s no better way to catch them off guard than to throw them a compliment.

Don’t bother with things like ‘well played’ or ‘nice goal’ as it can sound snarky.

Instead, opt for something like ‘I love you too man’, ‘Can you teach me some skills… you’re actually pretty good at the game’.

Should that fail… dab him.

3. Quickfire comebacks (cool)

These are a great way of silencing a troll.

Often, they get wound up because they forget it’s just a game – nothing more than a meaningless collection of pixels.

Reminding them of such can work wonders – and go some way to keep them quiet.

Failing that, try ‘learn to play’ – which is perfect if the troll is performing badly.

Now, this will feed the troll, so expect a bit of backlash, but it does feel good.
