FC Attributes are responsible for determining a player’s quality, and knowing them well can give to the player the opportunity to choose his team more efficiently. They’re the ones responsible to make us feel like each player is different. On Ultimate Team, the attributes can only be viewed in game, in the squad management menu or else in a database.
FUT have six major attributes: pace, shooting, passing, dribbling, defending and physicality (heading is not any more a major attribute). However, there are 28 specific attributes which determine the final value of the major ones. This way in case someone wants a good dribbler it isn’t enough to just look at the Dribbling major attribute. He also needs to see Agility, Balance and Ball Control (plus the specific attribute Dribbling). This happens to every single attribute. Besides, these specific attributes don’t all have the same weight, some weigh more for the final composition.
