To add balance, I’m someone who spams the life out this in and around the box. I’ve just beat a guy where I did 6 la croqueta from the corner flag and scored both times, which is frankly ridiculous.

Tbh I’ve scored 100’s of goals off this skill move and won countless penalties. It’s almost impossible to defend when done correctly. I played a guy who spammed them from kick off, corners, in his own half and it was annoying.

So I ask the question, should this skill move be removed? Personally I think the gaming experience would be better without it or at least with a nerf. What do you think?

Keep, but make it harder to pull off or have a 1 second delay before you can use it again

    -change the teleportation animation
    -make it possible to tackle
    -make it harder to perform with some error factor

    Other: reduce the speed boost and don't make it impossible to tackle someone performing the move. It's infuriating the number of times I know theyre going to do the move, I wait for it, I time the tackle perfectly, and the ball still goes through

    I think a delay would solve this. You’d know they can only use it once, so can position accordingly. It’s the ability to go into a second, third, forth at speed makes it impossible to track and defend. Agree with your points though, it’s annoying when you time the tackle and it still gets through.

    No i like the way it is. Gives more attacking options against 1depth Drops back.
    Why do you want everything good against drop back removed only to complain about ai defending and 10guys in the box afterwards.
    Same with TF.

    Idk why ppl think its so OP, sure its effective and pretty easy to do but its not hard to see it coming and stop it.

    What I'd like to see change is these useless animations my players make when the opponent performs a skill move, yeah ankle breaker is funny but ffs let me defend in peace.

    Maybe removing it isn’t the issue, but needs to be harder to excecute.

    because some people don't play drop back and it has been abused against them with no power to stop it.
    even when you predict it. the player just teleport with no power for the defender to stop the animation.

    I hate playing against drop back but you can't fix a broken feature with another broken mechanic.

    If defending with the AI you have more chance of stopping it than If you manually defend, so this post makes no sense.

    Some movements should make it harder to do another dribble movement in sequence. 2 or 3 Croquetas to one side is not real to do on real life, but the quality of the third one is not better than the first one. The elastico thing is really absurd.

    The quality of the third is better than the first because of the speed built up by the moves momentum. This is the main issue. Not the first but the 3rd / 4th in a row.

    It's not as bad as drag backs. However, if they made defender movement better WHEN MANUALLY DEFENDING it wouldn't be as bad. I'm tired of all of the dribbling exploits in this Fifa. Every year, when EA implement a new dribbling skill or w/e it's always ridiculously over powered. It's like they didn't even test it prior to release.

    El tornado and La Croqueta this year
    Crab walk last year

    lol they need a full year of a new feature before they can balance it hahaha such a joke

    If that your most pressing concern about this game, then EA are doing alright.

    Speaking as someone who never uses ANY skill moves, not even drag backs, I understand they're in the game. This is an entertainment product, first and foremost and not just a real football simulation. So they put in these features for those who get their enjoyment from these skill moves.

    Might as well just remove all the skill moves then

    Seems once people are able to do them, they do them all the time, and it's usually the same one over and over again. Played a guy yesterday who constantly did the heel to heel flick (seriously non-stop) until he fell over one of my defenders in the box. I'm sorry to say I quit the game before he could take the pen, which I'm not proud of, but in that moment I was just "Oh **** off EA".

    doing it back to back should result in loss of control of the ball

    I hate every single person wanting to keep this skillmove as it is. It has to be either changed or gets taken out of the game. I've never seen a single football player in real life perform them back to back or when no one is even close to charge for the ball. It looks just as stupid and out of place than GK moving.

    People like that deserve to be rage quit on before he is able to take the pen. They are not playing football, but FIFA.
