As you know, in previous FUT’s there were six base attributes that featured on FUT player items: pace, shooting, passing, dribbling, defence and heading. In FIFA 15 Ultimate Team, heading will be replaced by a new base attribute: Physical (PHY).
PHY, which stands for “Physical”, is a measure of key physical traits such as Strength, Stamina, and Jumping. PHY is important to FIFA 15 and FUT because it will help you determine a player’s ability to win physical battles across the pitch and keep their fitness throughout. This also seems to mean that for the first time ever stamina will make part of Ultimate Team mode.
Although Heading was a great attribute to judge players by, PHY will have a more significant impact during a match. By paying attention to the players’ PHY attribute you’ll be better prepared to build your dream team in FUT 15 and beyond.
Physical Attribute Summary:
- Physical (PHY) will replace Heading as a basic attribute on FUT players cards
Physical is a measure of key physical traits such as Strength, Stamina, and Jumping
