FIFA 16 Implementing No Touch Dribbling
Developers Release Video Demonstrating New Dribbling Mode Starring Messi
In a recent video released in the EA Sports FIFA YouTube channel, the developers have demonstrated a new mode of dribbling to be introduced in FIFA 16 – the No Touch Dribbling. The video released shows Lionel Messi, wearing a ton of motion sensors, demonstrating this new dribbling style first-hand.
So what No Touch Dribbling basically means is that players will be able to perform different feints and even change direction without touching the ball in a one-on-one situation with an opposition player with the purpose of wrong-footing him.
So, How Does No Touch Dribbling Work?
To initiate No Touch Dribbling, simply press and hold the Left Shoulder button (L1/LB) on your controller. Once pressed, the player with possession of the ball will momentarily step away from it to create a bit of space. From there, by flicking the left analog in different angles, the player in possession of the ball will either shift his body in that particular direction or twist his ankle in the hopes of tricking the defender. If timed correctly, it can easily misdirect the defender into going one way while the player with the ball goes the other.
Who Can Perform No Touch Dribbling?
More complex moves can be performed by additionally pressing and holding the Right Trigger button (R2/RT). In these situations, the player with the ball will take larger strides away from it. Although there is a risk when attempting these, if pulled off correctly they can absolutely embarrass a defender.
While all players on the field will be able to perform No Touch Dribbling, the complexity and effectiveness of these moves will depend on the player’s dribbling statistics and skill move star rating. Therefore players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Arjen Robben have a better chance to execute the most complex of moves compared to other players. But with a little practice, players will be beating opposing defenders in no time with No Touch Dribbling.
