We are just at the start of FIFA 18, and loads of great OTW this might be the best to player pick! Since the price is fallen to rougly 700k its time to invest, this boy haven't start started yet. And this november 4. they gonna slay Angers and without more thinking this guy gonna rise to a mil real quick.
Hes overall a great pickup and might be one of the best investments atm people are so focused on the SBC icon cards there are comming soon. SO DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS BOY!
We can talk about pros / cons and theres many well described reviews, and he's amazing. i can not wait till this boy will get even better!
- Know were to be on the pitch
- Driven shots ( just smash it in)
- 1on1 with goalkeeper
- Duels vs defenders
Simply put mbappe 85 as a striker is a machine. He has the exact same attribute repartition as R9 90 and feels amazing on the pitch. He is fast, balanced, quick to dribble, and an insane finisher in the box. I'm actually considering not even selling him for a profit now.
- Amazing dribbling (especially while sprinting)
- Finishing is consistent
- R9 90 type of player but less than half the price
- A guaranteed SIF in the next couple of month
- Passing is inconsistent
- He's not as sexy as R9 90 (yet)
With this card being newly upgraded to 85 rated, this once monstrous card is now unbelievable. The pace increase to 92 sprint speed makes using a hawk card on him even more deadly, giving him 97 SS and 99 AC.
The hawk chem style also makes Mbappe a deadly finisher, mimicking those of R9, messi, and R7, with only penalties falling below the 80 mark.
Mbappe's dribbling got a +3 too, making his changes of direction whilst on the ball ridiculous, making almost 90 degree turns without changing pace, meaning he's destructive when cutting in from a run down the wing, and his ball control being 90 means the ball barely leaves his foot when precision dribbling.
A +6 to his passing makes him the perfect attacking threat when acccompanied by a LF and RF in the box, as he can tap small balls in a ticky tacka method before letting rip with his 91 shot power and 95 finishing (thanks to hawk).
Finally, his increase in defending stats and Physical stats makes him that much more threatening, as if the opponent managed to get the better of his 81 strength (hawk) and is dispossessed whilst in or near the box, then his slightly increased tackling ability helps considerably to get those cheeky extra tackles in, and often has put him through on goal again, which with some attackers who have defending stats in the 20's or 30's, you don't get.
All round this upgrade has given him that slight edge over other OP strikers in the game (G Jesus for example) and in my opinion puts him amongst the Icons. With undoubtedly more IF's to come, this OTW card is possibly going to be the best card on the game.... until TOTS.
Ability to ticky tacka in the box
Speed dribbler and technical dribbler. Hugely useful in the box
Strength and surprising defensive ability
Ability to turn at speed
Can't take free kicks (can't be good at everything!)
Crossing isn't great, incase you find him pushed out on the wing
