Gonna get the lad and me an elite controller, but what is the actual difference for Fifa?

I know they are worth picking up and looking after, because eventually they will sell for decent cash anyway, but what can I do with it that a regular controller can't with Fifa?

Anyone using one?

Genuinely like to read some views . . . . . . . .

    I think you can set up button combinations in the paddle so you can use one paddle to fake shot, another one for crab walk etc.

    Not sure tho, i dont own one

    The grip on the back is good and the buttons are more responsive that's it,
    The controller is heavy which is a negative.
    In terms of fifa it makes no difference not worth the money.

    i use one paddle as RB so i can do drag backs and finesse shots really easy. i think it depends on how you hold a pad. because im oldskool i hold the triggers with my forefingers. that means i cant reach the bumpers without letting off the triggers. the paddles are brilliant for that.

    lasted 3x longer than my normal pads.

    i also use the trigger stop on the left trigger so it has a shorter travel.

    you can map the sensitivity of the triggers and sticks as well.

    comes in a lovely case with spare sticks and paddles.

    10/10 would buy again.

    This is not true would be to OP

    I use 1 paddle for FIFA RB I tried a second LB but that confused my old mind so stick with one paddle

    Got one, would recommend however don't be fooled by thinking it is customisable because it is misleading. Underneath you have the four paddles which correspond to the four main buttons, therefore you have to remap the RB functions to something else. Feels solid and I like locking the triggers so there is not as much give on them. Also I am less likely to stamp on it in a rage due to its cost...

    You can map the a b x and y buttons to paddles. That way your thumb never leaves the right stick. It helps do skills on offense and switching on defense. Plus all your paddles get pressed instant rather than buttons where it takes you time to move around.

    This sounds like learning a skill all in itself, but one that could give both of us the upper hand when on the ball in game.
    This is exactly why I asked the question.

    Not worth it for FIFA really at all. It's a nicer feeling controller but that's up to you if that's worth paying for

    The extra paddles didn't help me and just got in the way of how I gripped it

    It does feel a lot nicer though. Got a decent weight to it.

    Basically this. Gave the paddles a go for FIFA but didn'tlike them, they are great on other games though and the grip is much better

    Definitely more beneficial for games such as siege, cod, battlefield basically shooters. Heavier which I like, better button response and grip. I remove my paddles on Fifa but I imagine they'd be handy.

    I have one but don't use the paddles for Fifa. There is no down sides to having one though. It's a more weighty pad because of the metal components it has, so it has a better feel than a standard pad. The sticks are easily changeable to suit you, I like to use really short ones on both for quickness.

    I might put one or two paddles in and program them for a skill move and see how it gets on.
