Did anybody seriously invest time into learning and timing of skillmoves? And if so, what is the best approach? Just fool around in the game, or some skill training, arena?
We are so invested into cards, trading, gambling... but playing at the same level for years. We are fooled that better cards can make us better players. Since everyone else also improves their team, we are bound to stay at the same level unless we actually improve the game.
Even simple ball roll can make great difference in the game flow and ball control, simple stuff like agile dribbling...
Without those things, it's just not enjoyable way to play Fifa. Even if it's not as affective as in previous Fifa games - the game without it, is just dull and not worth our time.
Anybody else feeling this way?
I believe you can take any solid NIF team and beat just about anybody with just a little bit of skilling. Am I wrong to assume that?
I would still like to see them incorporate the practice arena into FUT, as it makes more sense to practice with the actual players on your team.
That's all the skill moves you need and it takes 5 min to learn in total.
We are managers not actual players, the clubs have a budget and a growing economy, during gameplay we control mostly 1-2 players at a time, the rest are AI controlled.
If my FUT club is rich, either through club management skills, rewards or even using real money, the expensive players I get should perform up to their stats and traits.
Some 88+ players perform like trash, while players like Gvardiol and Klostermann are insane ingame.
Trivela is not a skill move, it's the flair shot but with high power, isn't it?
I agree high end players should play the best, but it should also take some skill to play and win or else the person with simply the better team would win every game and then it’d just be pay to win, which it already is going in that direction
If you want to learn a skillmove then its best to practise it a little bit in arena so you have the movement down. Then play games where your main objective is to perform that skillmove while playing the game like you would normally. You'll need to hardwire it into your brain and best way to that is by repetition. You sacrifice a bunch of games for the greater good and once you know the skillmove from all different angles and under pressure of a real opponent then you can truly utilise it.
But to think you need to do and know many different skillmoves is wrong. You dont really need them to reach a high rank. I only use a few basic ones if the situation asks for it. Passing, composure and positioning is where its at.
But I just can't stand to see a player like Inzaghi so useless like in the past Fifas, while irl the guy was a goal poaching freak!!
No matter how skilled you are anyway, if your connection is not stable, it's game over.
Then try utilising those skills in skill games with your modified team then take learnt knowledge online
Basically the way we play, control the ball and pass will determine the game. Not some AI or connection. We got it all wrong.
If you watch pro players it's just a whole different game they are playing - the way Fifa is ment to be played. You might call it mechanics abuse but I see much faster ball transition, amazing skills and vision.
I feel that we are not nearly talking enough about actually improving our game. Countless topics about pulls, promos, prices... That's all utterly irrelevant for actually enjoying the game. In fact it can be a little bit depressing. Who cares really...
-Online gameplay will always be annoying it seems, if you want high end competition it must be via LAN.
-You don't need to learn more than 3-4 skill moves.
