②    Match Scenes

③    Player Positions

Some Skills can only activate when a player is placed at the right position.

Eg. The Skill ‘Polyvalent CMF’ can activate only if a player is used either as CAM, CMF or DMF.



Player position is especially important for Offense/Defence Skills


03.Skills with Special Effects

Some Skills do not only have an impact on the Attack Success chance.

A.    Interception
Special Skill that activates when a team is supposed to be in defence.

A Match Scene that should have been played in defence is played in offence, giving your team an extra chance to score whie reducing your opponent’s chance to score.

B.    Charge
Defensive Skills that consumes the opponent player’s stamina with tough physical contact.

It has no direct impact on the Attack Success chance but, by tiring the opponent, it will impact the next Match Scenes.

C.    Unbreakable
When activated, the goalkeeper will not tire, even when stopping powerful shots.



This Skill does no affect the Attack Success chance but has a huge impact on the match
