FIFA 16 is a very different game from FIFA 15. The gameplay is slower and more tactical which means that you can’t use pace to beat your man like you could in previous FIFA games. Most of the players I come across on Ultimate Team and Seasons rely on speedy players to score their goals, in FIFA 16 these players have to adapt and chance their playstyle to have any chance of doing good competitively.
In FIFA 16 dribbling and good passing is essential. In you’re not a good dribbler then practise! That’s what the Arena and Drills are for, practise till you’re able to beat the Gold challenges.
Other than Skill Moves, the best dribbling technique is the newly applied No Touch Dribbling. This new dribbling technique introduced in FIFA 16 allows players to move without the ball to juke their opponents and quickly change direction. No Touch Dribbling allows players to change direction quickly like with Body Feints and Fake Shots in FIFA 15 to beat your man and score some amazing goals.
Since its new, players will need to practise No Touch Dribbling before they’re any good at it. Using the technique is simple, just hold L1 (PS3/PS4) or LT (Xbox 360/Xbox One) and move the right analog stick to the direction your want to go. These are small feints good for beating opponents close to you or when you’re not running. Big feints are done by holding the sprint button R2 (PS3/PS4) or RT (Xbox 360/Xbox One) while holding the L1 or LT button. The big feints help when you’re on the counter or running towards opponents and have ample space to move the ball.
