I've been testing the new Link Feints feature, after realising how to use it properly today, and want to know what successful variations they have come up with and whether or not you use Link Feints or think it's just a waste of time.
If people have any good combinations, then I'll list them below, just to help people who are having trouble with them. Another question: Do people ever fill the 5 allotted spots to any success?

I find the stepovers too slow on this game sadly...So I can't see myself using them as much as in previous games...I've just stuck my shortcuts as :
Player's front : Elastico (left) Player's right : Roulette (right) Player's left : Crossover Turn (left) Player's rear : Inside Bounce
Works for me...I can remember thinks like flick to the side, rainbow flick, crossover turn to the right, backheel feint and a few others without difficulty so if I want to use those that shouldn't be a problem...But those should serve me well for the most part I think...

I also find the combination a waste of time. All I use is a Step over to the left or a Step over to the right; it's so effective and I've scored many goals by using it. I'll try upload some examples of using it, because it outwits even the best defenders in the world and provided you use it in the right circumstance, it will give you great goalscoring opportunities. All it takes is some practise. If you're being pressured, then use the step over to the opposite side the defender is hassling you, and then once you've created a little bit of space, do another stepover in the other direction. So say if a defending is coming from your left, step over to the right, and then the left. I haven't tried all the feints out yet, but some are useless.

I tried these very briefly last night...And to be honest I'm not a fan of the combinations as such...Losing control of the player for 3 or 4 seconds doesn't appeal to me really...If you need to change direction in the middle of it you're screwed...I tried one briefly with 3 stepovers and a flick to the side but was a bit disappointed...I can imagine if you set it up for like...Side dribble, reverse step over, backheel feint, flick to the side or something, that might be cool...Like what Cristiano Ronaldo used to do if he was just in the corner to confuse the defender...Personally I've just set up each stick movement for one trick, so that I can use the LB + RS combination as a shortcut for the tricks I use most but aren't always easy to remember the stick and button combinations or movements for...So I've found that really useful in making the tricks I use most easier to pull off, whilst memorising a few others that I might use from time to time...But I don't think using the combinations as such to actually take it past people while dribbling is actually that effective...If you wanted to just make something that looked cool to do every now and then though, I'm sure you could set it up to do something like this...

found a pretty awesome one when cutting in on the left flank with a right footed player. running stepover dummy left to running inside bounce diagonal take right. works wonders on the left edge of the box and managed to pull off a sick goal with khedira after screwing up a right back

Yeah, I'm finding that not over complicating things works better. The most spots I've used successfully are two, which was a feint followed by an Inside bounce thiing. Rainbow flicks work well when you're really highly pressured, or of someones about to slide tackle you, and feints seem to work pretty work well it's just 1 on 1 with space.

Fixed stick configurations means no matter what way the player is facing, pushing right, up, left and down on the right analog stick will cause the player to perform that particular Link Feint, whereas with Player View configataions, it's the way the player is facing. So if he's running in a -> way, then pushing the right analog stick -> way will cause you to perform the Right stick Up Link Feint.

hey does anyone know the difference between a "fixed stick configuration" and "player view configuration"?

Simple step overs with both Ronaldos = ownage of the defense except most of the time with Cristiano I lose the ball so I have to give credit to Konami for added the realism.
