How to use this guide

Your Virtual Pro has an initial value and a max “cap” value for each of their attributes. The choices you make on your Pro’s position, height and weight all dictate these maximum attribute values, so it is critical to review and understand what and where your Pro’s attribute ceiling will be.

In order to do so, our Position guides provide you with a number of data views so that you can evaluate the different build combinations to find one that has the right balance for you and your playstyle. In this guide you will find (all by H/W combination):

  • Total of Initial Attributes
  • Total of Max Attributes
  • Total of Max Pace Attributes
  • Total of Max Physical Attributes
  • Total of Max Defending Attributes
  • Total of Max Passing Attributes
  • Total of Max Dribbling Attributes
  • Total of Max Shooting Attributes


The Forward position has an even heavier bias towards lighter builds than the Striker position. The maximum attribute totals for Initial build is 5’5″ – 5’6″, 120 – 174kg, but the max total at the attribute caps is the 5’11” – 6’0″, 120 – 149kg build.

The difference between the highest and lowest build totals is 34 points at attribute caps. In other words, you will have 34 more attribute points if selecting the 5’11” – 6’0″, 120 – 149kg build vs the 6’7″, 225 – 253kg build.

Another notable difference with the Striker build overall is that Forwards have a higher total attribute score than Strikers, demonstrating a slightly more rounded build (2,312 points vs 2,299).

Total of Initial Attributes

Total of Max Attributes


General trends in Attribute categories are apparent across all positions – such as Pace being highest in smaller, lighter builds – however, the degree to which these apply does differ by position. In addition, each position features different Attribute Max Caps, making it crucial to compare and understand each position’s strengths and limitations.

For the Forward position, the categories with the biggest difference in Attribute points are:

  • PACE: 51 (171 vs 120) – this is higher at max and min than Strikers
  • DRIBBLING: 41 (530 vs 489) – the min here is higher thank Strikers, max is consistent
  • PHYSICAL: 37 (317 vs 280) – both max and min are notably lower than Striker builds
