There's usually a thread along these lines this year, and I'm yet to see one, so I'd thought I'd start one up.

A place where we can discuss things such as:

-New Skills
-Which skills are 'best' this year
-How to perform certain skills
-Reviews of players with 5* SM
-Skill goals we've scored


With auto-defending essentially wiped out, it makes it a lot harder to defend against skill moves, whereas it was previously pretty easy beforehand. I'm expecting see skill moves feature more prominently in online matches, and wouldn't be surprised if we see the professionals use skill moves on a more regular basis (although players such as Gorilla already used them fairly regularly). I'm also hearing the body feint backwards has got even better than last year.
