Dribbling is more worthless than ever, and that was really what set the best players apart in this game.

The way they have made the game it is now you vs the AI, the other player is a just a liability to the AI defense really from a positional standpoint.

Tired of playing possession passing type games, no matter what formation or tactics I use becuase that is clearly the only gameplay EA thinks matters and aside from the the odd skill move that somehow didn't take 3 seconds to do and lose the ball this game has completely destroyed everything that rewarded skilled dribblers.

    Skilled dribbling has sweet f*** all to do with football.
    EA should re release FIFA Street for those who want to do constant pirouette spins & all the other crap you NEVER see on a real football pitch (because they'd cut your legs away pretty sharpish) - & leave the game in a simulated state for the rest of us who want to play something resembling real pass & run football

    Problem with your pass and run simulation is that its less a game and more simulation. Taking the players skill out of it more and more each year and having to rely on AI to make good runs and defense AI to not play like a pack of rabid dogs swarming the field.

    At this point they should just make FIFA a managerial game except every team plays the same and the custom tactics are so bad it is amazing. You couldn't even make it into a simulation game because EA forces most people to play ONE style. A boring **** skill-less style at that.

    Also; it has a LOT to do with football. Most of the highlight reels if not outside the box bangers are clean finishes after some alien like dribbling. A lot of games a cagey affairs in the middle that can get chaotic opposed to the organized build up play FIFA17 really tries to mandate.

    Good dribbling moves in real life can unlock the defense as much as passing. I can think of countless I've watched. In FIFA it feels way to difficult compared to before to the point the AI and bad players can defend the moves because they are SOOOOO slow.

    I can commit the WRONG direction and still get the guy trying to chop to my left cuz it is that slow. It is completely pathetic beyond belief right now.

    Messi destroys teams in real life with his dribbling all the time. What are you on about his dribbling makes him one of the best players in the world. In real life if a defender misreads messi he is gone like the wind. In fifa not so much haha.

    And when Messi dribbles in real life, how often do you see him doing the Berba spin? Or the Ronaldo Chop? Or the rainbow flick?

    You "skillers" should really be asking for a new FIFA Street
