What is AcceleRATE in EA Sports FC 24?
EA FC 24’s AcceleRATE system assigns each player in the game an archetype that determines how they use their pace when running for the ball. These types are decided by a combination of a player’s acceleration stat, height, agility, and strength.
The main goal is to make each individual player feel as realistic as possible, as well as ensure that defenders that might be slower on paper still have a fighting chance against pacey strikers and wingers.
For example, Kylian Mbappe will have a higher pace stat than most players in EA FC 24, but tall defenders with longer strides will be able to catch him over long distances thanks to their acceleration type.
Each acceleration type will have a huge impact on pace in EA Sports FC 24.
