    Explanation on the Skill Attributes

    I would like to ask, is there any explanation on the skill attributes?
    I always have questions on some attributes, such as:
    - What is bravery? Isn't it the same as Aggression?
    - What is Fitness? Related to the chance of injury?
    - Is Heading and Positioning not just defence attributes, but also affect attacks?
    Anyone knows more about these?

    Thanks for the explanation. It is clearer now. So heading is purely defensive and will not help on scoring from header.

    I think it does help attackers score headers, otherwise why is it a white skill?

    Surely it does help.

    From stats, ST who has better heading does score a lot more from corners than AMs even when AMs’ shooting and finishing are better. Saying that, defenders with very good heading skills may only score a couple from corners a season, if any.

    With your original question, positioning mainly helps with defending attacks. When positioning reaches quite a high level, say 180%+, it does help greatly on improving those players into goalscoring positions. My DL/DC/DMC, who mainly operates as DL or DC these days, scores 10-15 goals per season even when his shooting is only around 10-20%. Such a low shooting stat should suggest he would not score, but excellent positioning surely overrides in those circumstances.

    So who would be better at heading in top eleven? Striker 194cm with 120% heading or striker 180cm with 190% heading ?

    To my knowledge, height doesn't matters in Top Eleven.

    Bravery is willingness to commit to an action. Its very important at high level play and is the most underestimated defensive stat.

    Fitness is not related to the chance of injury, in my view. The chance of injury more depends on shapes of your tactics. For example, your players are more vulnerable while playing with high tempo (like high pressing with attacking football). Also, Man-to-man marking of your opponent increase the probability of injury on your players. You can make relative assumptions based on your tactic choises and some attributes of opponent players(like aggression, marking, bravery etc.)

    Heading and positioning are 2 of key attributes of your strikers. Besides corner and free-kicks, good heading and positioning increase the scoring probability of your strikers, while attacking down both flanks. 2D view of game does not show heading goals, but I've seen many statements after a goal of striker that the goal was a head goal.
