Sorry guys. Pele is not for me.


I have done the Pele SBC in the World Cup market crash for around 1 million coins, and boy, what a disappointment he was. His stats are a lie. Rather sadly, he gets pushed off the ball a lot, due to his relatively unsatisfactory height and strength at this stage of the game. His finishing... god how horrible it is. 98 finishing... he misses open goals from 5 yards out. Really, even Manolas would've scored that. His passing is decent, but not that relevent considering passing in fifa 18 feels the same for anyone anyway. His defending is surprisingly decent, he does get a few nice tackles here and there. His H/M workrates feel like M/H. When I play him at CAM, he likes to drop behind the half-way line, leaving TOTS Neymar and TOTS Son alone in the attacking half of the pitch. I have tried him in pretty much every position: CM, CAM, LM, RM, ST, CF, and more but he doesn't feel that great for me anyway. Ousmane Dembele is a much better player. Saying that, a very good part of him is his pace. He can outpace anyone with ease. His dribbling feels more like 90 rather than 96. In my personal opinion, his SBC isn't worth doing. Buy a TOTS player that is cheaper and better, like Marco Reus or Dybala or Messi. Sorry, I'm not intending to offend anyone with this review, he is a god in real life. Saying that, this review is to warn you. Are you really sure Pele is the player for you? If yes, then sure, but I would recommend buying him off the market, so that you can get your coins back should he not be as good as you expect. If not, stay away, he is very expensive and cheaper players do the job.

The real king

When I first made him from the SBC, I was thinking which chemistry style is best on him. and that's when I realise basic chem is good enough! 99 acceleration, 99 for key aspects of shooting, 99 short passing, 99 vision, 99 dribbling. tried him out for first 10 games. felt that he was a bit underwhelming for his price. but as I kept on using him. I tried different formations, tried him alone and tried him with a parabctner a...

Luckiest Man In The World

I was lucky enough to pack this monster. I bought a 125k pack and never even got a flare, FROM A 125K PACK! I was fuming. The very next pack, I get a flare, thought it was a garbage inform. The color of the fireworks was Blue and White, thought it was a MOTM. I see the card as an icon, I thought it would be the cheapest one. Saw Brazil, thought it will be the lowest rated Roberto Carlos. Saw Pele, thought it would be the lo...
