Shot-Online uses a stat system in order to upgrade your character's abilities. Each stat influences a different part of your game. There is a total of 4 stats: Power, Impact, Stamina and Skill.
Power- The amount of physical strength you have. Each power point will increase your carry distance on every club.
Impact- This is your ball control. Impact adds loft to your clubs and makes them less sensitive to mis-hits as well as making overpower shots more forgiving.
Stamina- Your resistance and hazard shots performance on the field. The more stamina you have, the less you get fatigued after your shots and the waiting period to decrease your FTG in the Square is shortened. This stat also regulates the power gaps when you hit shots from rough or from bunkers. With a higher stamina stat, the percentage interval is shortened, therefore making your shots (from rough or sand) travel more and be more consistent.
Skill- Skill determines the amount of spin you can apply to your ball. This will magnify your backspin, fade and draw effects adding more distance and curve to them.
You distribute your stats the way you want to, in order to build a character that reflects your style of play.
