FIFA 23 is almost upon us and to build the excitement EA Sports have been slowly releasing new data to their fans.
We know the top 23 overall and some of each league’s best players, but one thing a lot of fans keep an eye out for is five-star skillers.
Pace will always be a big part of the game but when you’re in front of the opposition box you want someone who can help you find that extra bit of space. For the serious Ulimate Teamers, a player with less than four-star skill moves wasn’t worth having after the first few months of the game.
The ability to move out of tight spots is crucial in Ultimate Team, especially around your opponent’s area as you look to get the edge in a tough match. It’s the same in other game modes, too, whether you’re chasing the Treble in Career Mode, a division title on Pro Clubs, or just regular (or co-op) head-to-head seasons.
When the right skills are used at the right time and in the right combination, five-star skillers can be unstoppable, that’s why they can be so popular on Ultimate Team.
In FIFA 22 we had 51 five-star skillers in total, excluding ICONs and any Hero cards, but this year around we have seen that list drop to 48. Nevertheless there are some big names ranging from 91-rated Kylian Mbappe to FIFA legend Aidan McGeady. But who else made this list? Take a look below…
