In every sport there are specific skills that are needed for a player to contribute to the success of his team in a match. Like Basketball which is composed of Guards, Forwards and a Center, each has a specific task to do inside the court. In Freestyle Football, an MMO sport online game, set of skills are needed to win a match. Composed of a Forward, Mid-fielder, Defender and a Goal Keeper, they have specific functions inside the field to perform.
Forward is responsible for attacking the goal of the opponent, specific skills that needed are Curve Kick, Diving Header, Sliding Shot and Quick Shot. There are other skills that are needed for receiving and dribbling the ball but since this position is responsible for attacking the goal of the other team, we just highlighted the attacking skills of this position.
Mid-Fielder is responsible for handling the ball and assisting the forward in attacking the opponent’s goal. These mostly involve dribbling and passing skills like Ground Cross, Early Cross, Dodge, Space Pass, Lobbing Pass and Curve Pass.
The Defender rarely seen in the opponent’s side of the court to attack, mainly its responsibility is to defend, and that is to prevent the ball from ever reaching the goal keeper. Skills needed are mostly for tackle and blocking the ball, skills like Bicycle Clear, Overhead Clear, Turning Tackle, Covering, Long SLD Tackle, Grab and Pull and Persistent Tackle.
The Goal Keeper’s responsibility is to keep the goal and prevent the opponent from ever letting the ball go inside the goal. This position in the game is not playable unless the game goes into the penalty round where one of the players will be the goal keeper but as far as a regular match is concern, this position is being played by an AI player. However, you should not underestimate the AI because they are much better keeper of the goal in the game than a regular player.
Above all the skills that we have discussed here, there is one skill that tops it all and that is teamwork. Since this is a group game, teamwork is necessary to win every match and without it you will simply lose a match. You can check the game at www.gamekiss.com
