Skill Moves

Skill Moves

Skills moves can be performed by all players. The type of skill your player can execute depends on his skill level. A player with the highest skill level can perform the most difficult and effective skills in the game, whereas a player with a lower skill level will attempt a simpler version of a trick or may altogether fail in his attempt of that skill. The speed at which a skill move is executed depends on your player’s agility attribute. For example, an agile player like Cristiano Ronaldo can perform skills at a much quicker pace than a player with lower agility.

All of the skills are broken down into five levels of difficulty. One-star moves are the most basic and can be performed by all players in the game. Two-, three-, and four-star moves can be done by players who are relatively skilful in real life. Five-star moves can only be performed by the most skilled footballers such as Cristiano Ronaldo.

The controls listed below assume that the controlled player is moving vertically upwards and should be amended depending on your player’s direction.
