Standard goalkeeper with a bit more pace (Gianluigi Buffon)
By selbz014, 21-07-2018

Well, in some cases he is better than other goalkeepers regarding his quick pace and ability to catch but as we all know, goalkeepers on this game are broken. Buffon is no different. In fact, he is probably worse at saving low driven shots than any goalkeeper I have used. I actually have a Japanese team and the 73 rated goalkeeper feels better than Buffon does. He is good for SBC fodder being 98 rated but he is so disappointing. I never normally use goalkeepers who are shorter than 6 foot 5 as they at least have a chance of saving long shot finesses. I thought Buffon would be decent, but he isn't. He really isn't. Low chem 91 De Gea is much better.

Pace, quick off his line to close down one on ones.

Catching.

Doesn't give away cheap rebounds like so many other GKs do.

Quite cheap to do the SBC.

He is good at dribbling.

His distribution is good. Can throw accurately and to a teammate. Kicking I haven't really noticed.

LOW DRIVENS, cannot save any. Far post, even near post will go in.

Long shot finesses. No goalkeepers can save these but I thought a 98 rated GK would be the exception. He isn't.

Honest Review of EOAE Pirlo (Andrea Pirlo)
By LiverpoolSamuel, 21-07-2018

I missed the first chance to get Pirlo so I was excited when he came back for Futties


PACE: 8/10


So Pirlo is not the fastest but he can beat defenders due to his good acceleration.


SHOOTING: 9/10


Long shots, Free kicks, Penalties, and Finesse are all good but Finishing inside the box not the best.


PASSING : 10/10


Nothing much to say, he never misses a pass and is great at crossing to PTG Firmino


DRIBBLING: 10/10


He has great ball control and dribbling so he can hold possesion even when he is tired or he can't outrun players.


DEFENDING: 7/10


He's not the best defender but he can make a good stand tackle and get possesion back a few times


Physical: 3/10


He's a bit strong but won't use that because he has no aggression. Do not ever try to head the ball with him, if he even decides to jump, it won't do much.


P.S


I used a Gladiator on him to boost shooting and defending. DO NOT USE HUNTER OR SHADOW because his low stamina will drain him before he can make those fasts runs


I use him as a super sub be aware of that

Useless (Gianluigi Buffon)
By Chelskis, 21-07-2018

I have played FIFA 18 almost every single day...


Saved around 525.000 coins for Futties and Premium SBCs.


I have wasted around 100-150 k on this piece of garbage..


Honestly - you are better off using a bronze keeper.


Thanks EA! I now deleted my account and wasted all my remaining coins on packs premium gold packs (500k - best card? PTG = Oxlade-Chamberlain)


Sort out your pack weight and game...I am done with FIFA - not buying Fifa 19


Buy Begovic for 1k - he is way better than this piece of joke

Chemistry to be replaced by any bronze keeper

everything - complete trash


ruined my FIFA 18 experience at the end...what a joke

not as good as his stats are (Gianluigi Buffon)
By naufil123, 21-07-2018

i spend more than 200k for his premium SBC but his not worth it. the stats were highly impressive because of which i thought it would be worth spending.

this 98 rated buffon nowhere plays near to his stats, maybe the worse 90+ rated GK i have ever used.


guys dont waste your coins on his SBC, you will be disappointed.

handling is good


cant save easy ones.

long shots go easily in

Buffon (Gianluigi Buffon)
By Enugu, 21-07-2018

Keepers in Fifa 18 seem to be bugged somehow. If they don't have the "save with feet" trait they are usually pretty useless.


Tried several TOTS cards, informs etc.


At the end it all comes down to Begovic and de Gea...and possibly Ruffier (who also has the trait to save with feet - whereas his informs are horrible).


Buffon is a complete disaster...do not waste your coins...unless you want to use him for another SBC. This card is just as bas as his gold card....


Quite unreal if you ask me...how can EA release such a poor special card? He is complete pants

Maybe Reflexes

1 vs 1

Low drivens
