There was a time when skill moves were a positive part of fifa. They were generally much more effective as there used to be no such thing as a bad touch- the ball was stuck to the feet when doing skill moves. Since the defending was legacy it made it much easier to get past someone using skills. The most popular fifa videos on youtube used to be goals compilations and skill tutorials rather than pack openings and wagers. Now the majority of skill moves are ineffective, but there is usually 3 or 4 overpowered skills. These same 3 or 4 skill moves are spammed in every 1 on 1 situation and it just looks and feels ridiculous. It's not even close to resembling real football.
Even if they nerf la croqueta and el tornado next year, there will be another overpowered skill move that people will spam the hell out of. So my proposal is to remove skill moves completely and focus on improving the dribbling mechanics (which are absolutely horrendous). Popular skills and touches (such as la croqueta) can naturally be implemented into a player's dribbling when using the left stick. This would stop the skill spamming and allow for a greater variety of goals to be scored. Let's be honest, skills are very rarely performed in high level football and they would not be missed in a football game. Dribbling is much more important, and the game mechanics should reflect this. We shouldn't see people go on "la croqueta runs" to avoid having to dribble.
In my opinion it would make the game much more enjoyable if they got rid of skill moves completely. What's your thoughts?
