Which new Skill Move to FIFA 16 is “most valuable”?

EA has implemented five new skills to this year’s installment that include both the flair-based skills such as the “Bolasie Spin” and new universal features such as the “No Touch Dribble.” Today, I’m going to touch base on which skills are most effective from the new additions to this year’s title.

Heel Flick Turn

– Great switchup skill move that catches your opponents off guard due to the new animation
– Very deceptive because it shares an identical opening execution to the Heel Flick, however, the delivery includes an additional fake
– Draws fouls often, including PKs with high frequency

8/10

Fake Pass

– Can be used against high-pressure opponents with validity if you are able to execute the skill seamlessly with instinctive reactions
– At the end of matches, this skill can be used to create possession space
– The fake pass is beautiful in theory, but it lacks regular opportunities in terms of usage, especially in a high level FIFA matches

4/10

Bolasie Spin

– Can be used as a change up with the Berba Spin in order to catch an opponent off guard
– The timing and final execution differentiates between the Berba / McGeady spin, which allows this skill to be intertwined with those as a premium change of pace
– Not a high validity rate in terms of execution and only five star skillers are able to perform the Bolasie Spin

6/10

Rabona Shot

– This add-on in FIFA 16 is solely for the skillers of ultimate team
– I can’t see a situation where a Rabona Shot is more effective than the normal power finish or placed finesse
– Looks amazing! Low rate of being able to score with this technique

3/10

No Touch Dribble

– Anyone on the pitch can execute the No Touch Dribble (Universal Skill)
– This skill is best used in a “Stop and Go” format (I have a full tutorial on my YouTube channel)
– The learning curve on the No Touch Dribble is longer┬ácompared to┬ámany other skills
– Once mastered, this skill can be an incredible combo-based move all over the pitch
– Good for shielding the ball, especially on the sidelines if you are looking for strength-based possession play

8.5/10
