FIFA 18 Skill Moves Guide - Updated & New Skill Moves

 

Are you looking to know how to perform those amazing FIFA 18 Skill Moves? You can find them here: the updated and the new skill moves in a single guide.

The Star Skill Moves measures the ability that a player has to perform technical moves. To all skill moves are assigned a number between 1 (least complex) and 5 (most complex). The players with higher skills, as Ronaldo or Neymar, are able to perform more complex moves. If you often use these moves to confuse the opponents, you should pay attention to this attribute. Otherwise, you will not be able to perform all the skills that you want. Our suggestion is that you should learn how to perform two of these skill moves. It will be very important to you because it may make the difference between winning or losing a match.
