I played all my 6 DKT games on moday so on tuesday I had all the time to play with him. And in 14 games I noticed he is just PERFECT
pace- good for a defender it's around the same as prime maldini
shooting- amazing for a defender he can score from outside the box with his shotpower and his heading is just perfect
passing-its just what you want it to be he can do all the passes you want
dribbling- good for a defender, he can run up with the attack and keep the ball to himself
defending- this is where the good things start his tackles are just AMAZING if he comes close to a striker HE GETS THE BALL no matter what
strength- with 98 what els do you want when not one striker can beat him in a 1v1 battle.
- amazing strenght
- ok dribbling
- for some players it's hard to get him I guess
Let me go out and say, how thankful we can be that we only needed to win 6 DKT matches to get this guy.
Games so far: 22
Monday morning, I got him and thought how I was going to link him up. Ended up getting (89) Van Der Sar on a cheaper bid.
Pace: His pace is really noticeable when he tries to catch fast attackers. He has 81 acc and 87 spr. spd. You need to move him yourself in order to catch the like of Lozano, Messi etc. Those small guys are the problem this fifa, but with decent positioning he catches everyone.
Shooting: I never attack really with my defenders, so it's quite irrelevant. I tried two shots against a guy in DKT semi final, but both were blocked.
Passing: You can expect good things with 95 short passing and 93 long passing. He plays at LCB for me and with that 4* weak foot he really plays some good balls at times, when a early run is made. So far no complaints about passing from him.
Dribbling: His touch is brilliant and the 76 agility helps in that aspect. I don't dribble or make any drag backs with my defenders, because I always have one touch and pass it away to someone else.
Now balance is one part, I was worried about when EA released the info on this card and I thought his balance would affect this card, because I've used CR7, Lukaku and they always seemed to be weaker due to their balance, but he hasn't shown any weakness in that yet, as his hold up play with L2 is quite decent when pressing.
Now with this card you get almost all stats above 90 except interceptions, which is 86. Let's start with tackling, where he again just proves how good of a value he is compared to other Icons, TOTS players. He doesn't make a mistake in tackling, because he just seems massive ingame and blocks everything. Interceptions are quite surprising here. I expected him to be worse than Prime Ferdinand, but he does better interceptions than Rio and that might be because he hast much higher agility.
Not much to it as he has great jumping (haven't lost a near post duel as of yet), stamina (never get's tired), strength to withhold anyone and aggression that helps him win those battles against your Lukaku etc.
Goes above expectations
Hard to link with, if you don't have Icons.
He is more than a beast.
A real game changer!
Every time I am losing, I just do the ultra attack, and he becomes a goal scorer and a super assistant, better than many attackers I think.
In defense, he is so fast and strong, he knows exactly what and when to do.
Always in the right place, as a defender or an attacker.
Long shots with both feet are indescribable.
Very dangerous in corners and free kicks.
- Not easy to link with a high rated squad.
It has been a tough experience for defending in FUT18. Tried multiple combinations, but for me De Ligt and Ake is the best CB partnership.
De Ligt is only out of position once for the entire 2 games i won (The rest of the DKT after i got De Ligt), with one of the game with clean sheet. He even got multiple last ditch tackles to save Zoet (WHO IS INCREDIBLE AS WELL)
Strong, Agile, Good Passer, Almost always at the right place at the right time. Good partnership with Ake
Might be a little bit short, but high jump and strength does help.
So i unlocked him and changed the Team, to get De Ligt on full chem. I played him the first 3 games with Ramos TOTS. This partnership was ok. The other 6 games i played him with Nesta Prime (a real donkey), this was even worse. So how is De Ligt ? He is ok, on paper he looks really good but for me he was pretty average, i know i only played 9 games with him and i will continue using him in a fun team but i wanted him to be OP. Couple days ago i packed Koulibaly TOTS in a 7.5 pack, didnt liked his normal card but the TOTS was a suprise, he actually is really good and compared to De Ligt he is better. This is my opinion, i know that all players play different for everyone so since he is free try him out.
PACE: Slower than 85 pace (tryed him with Engine and Shadow)
SHOOTING: Wasnt shooting with him so no comment
PASSING: Was good, cant remember something bad about his passing
DRIBBLING: Was ok, didnt noticed something outstanding but definitely an improvement
DEFENDING: Tbh pretty average
PHYSICALITY: His strength was pretty good
He is tall
Passing is good
Hard to link, unless you use icons
Compared to the rest of his defending stats his interceptions are quite low
