What does Lengthy mean in FIFA 23? Explained

Get used to the new AcceleRATE system!

The new AcceleRATE feature in FIFA 23 has revolutionized the pacing system, which quintessentially defines how a player runs. Running style depends on a player's constitution, height, strength, agility, and other factors. The AcceleRATE feature classifies players into three distinct archetypes based on their physical attributes. Lengthy is one of the AcceleRATE archetypes of players with tall stature and well-built composition. Here's everything you need to know about the Lengthy archetype in FIFA 23.

The new AcceleRATE pace system classifies players into three specific archetypes-Controlled, Explosive, and Lengthy. Agility, Strength, and Height are the main contributing factors behind these archetypes. For Lengthy players, while they lack in the instant jolt of acceleration, they perform exceedingly well over distances. For example, consider a player like Karim Benzema or Erling Haaland. While they are slow at the start of a run, these players gain momentum at full stride, breezing past defenders smoothly.

Lengthy players are tall and strong, but they lack in the agility department. In Ultimate Team, players can apply different Chemistry Style consumables to Lengthy players, affecting their initial archetypes. For instance, Marksman, Hawk, Architect, and Sniper are a few Chemistry Styles that affect a player's Physical and Pace attributes. Several players have experienced how dominantly the Lengthy archetype performs in-game, especially with different Chemistry Styles. You can effectively change a player's archetype by applying the proper Chemistry Styles. The criteria for falling under the Lengthy archetype are listed below.
