The Central attack rating is calculated by a combination of (in order of imporatance):
- Scoring forwards
- Passing forwards
- Passing inner midfielders
- Passing wingers
The Central attack rating is believed to be more important than the Left attack or Right attack; however, opinion varies on the % of attacks that come from each of the three ratings. Research shows that (in the absence of special tactics) the number of attacks directed to the center is significantly higher than the number of attacks directed to either wing.
