Individual orders explained by Nino [en]

Posted on: 19 January, 2008

1 – Shoot from distance – whether a player shoots more frequently from long range or not.
2 – Shoot instead of crossing – whether a player more frequently tries to go the final line and cross or run into the box and shoot.
3 – Hold up ball – How frequently a player will try to hold up the ball and, therefore, lose time or wait for better passing opportunities.
4 – Psssing type/Distribution (GKs) – Whether the player will opt for short, long or mixed passes.
5 – Dribbling/tricks – Whether the player will frequently try to dribble other players or avoid such confrontations.
6 – Avoid getting tired – Whether the player will play on the maximum of his efforts or avoid getting tired, taking all the consequences from it (experience hits, etc., all to be announced soon).
7 – Defensive corner position – Where the player will position himself during a corner kick situation against his team.
8 – Offensive corner position – Where the player will position himself during a corner kick situation favoring his team.
9 – Free kick action – Whether the player will pass or shoot the goal more frequently from a free kick situation.
10 – Penalty kick side – To what side of the goal the player will take his penalty shots.
11 – Close Marking/Pressing – Whether the player will try to press his opponents tightly or not.
12 – Pass side preference – Whether the player will try to pass to player in the flanks, to players in the center, or mixed.
13 – Cross from – Whether the player will try to cross from the end line or from 3/4 of the pitch.
14 – Movements – A very important order: whether the player will run up or down the field in attacking or defensive situations.
15 – Passes to open spaces – Whether players will try to pass to the front of players in good attacking positions or to their feet.
16 – Try to run from marker – Whether players will try to find open spaces away from their opponents or stay in position.
17 – Run to the area during crosses – Whether players will try to run to the heart of the area in good cross situations or not.
18 – Type of commemoration after goal – How the player will commemorate when he scores a goal, from a set of possible options.
19 – Try curve balls – Whether the player will try curve balls when shooting or crossing.
20 – Tackling – Easy, hard or normal tackling. The type of tackling will influence the probablity of winning a tackle but also increase or decrease the probability of commiting fouls (and, in the future, injuries).
21 – Pass to the front – Whether a player will try more frequently to pass to players in more offensive situations than him on the pitch or not.
22 – Position on crosses (GK) – A GK only option: if the keeper will stay on the line or move upwards.
23 – Clear ball – Whether players will try more frequently to clear the ball when they have no passing or dribbling options, instead of holding up the ball.
24 – Cross type – Whether players will cross the ball near the ground or try high balls (that is, an option to favour attackers’ heading/finishing skills).
