    Marco Reus - 93 - Bundes POTM
    5.0
    2nd Potm (Icon) Reus
    By OmidHound, 18-12-2018

    As i couldn't complete his first Potm since i didn't have the coins at that point , i did this Sbc even though its very expensive and untradable. Yes maybe its not the best value for coin wise! but with these stats on a player you're gonna use for 500+ games. i think its worth it and good god he delivered!

    • The following review is based on 46 games with the card resulting in 48 goals and 45 assists in a 2.5 million coins worth of Bundesliga , EPL , league1 and laliga Hybrid.

    since i had the 87 IF card i already knew this lad fits my playstyle. but good god you cant even compare the 2 cards!

    i started using him as a left striker in a 4.1.2.1.2 (2) since stamina wise he lasts all game there, and he was already one of the best Strikers I've had! but i felt his playmaking and longshot abilities go to waste there! so i moved him up to Cam and boom. Zola who? Messi who? Guys! he is the best cam for under 2mil hands down! Yes you gotta take him out at 80th , but the guy causes destruction at Cam! i got IF sane and TIF Werner as STs. those through balls man!

    • lets get to the Pros now

    Pace : I use hunter on him so... yep , you guessed it right! hes FAST!

    Shooting : Elite tier! up there with the bests of the game! this guys doesn't miss what so ever! i knew 92 ought to be impressive , but some shots will still surprise you

    long shots : Reus hast the best outside the box finesses in this game. I've tried them all , messi is the closest to him. but Reus is just on another level! I've hit red timed shots and they still hit top bins with such power and speed the goalie just doesn't have a chance! honestly his finesse shots are just unfair!

    Passing: sublime! there's an inch of opening in the defense? that's exactly where his passes will go!

    Dribbling : Amazing! he can turn defenders left and right! not up there with Messi , Neymar , Best , Ronaldinho tho. theres nothing there to let you down, but its just not a solid 10/10

    Ball Control : 10/10! whether its a first touch, close control, bad passes when he is not perfectly balanced, the ball isnt getting away from his feet what so ever.

    4* Combo : always nice to have

    Med/Med : its actually a pro! since the stamina ain't that great you don't want him running like crazy! he hovers the Cam position waiting to get a ball and start his magic!

    Positioning: his movement on 1-2 s and offensive runs sometimes make me feel he has high attacking workrate. just makes the right run at the right time!


    • Cons

    Stamina : as a Cam , needs to be subbed out at around the 80s , as a ST , played 120 mins with some juice on him left!

    Price / being untradable

    SBC requirement : really EA? no special reus?

    Strength is NOT a con , he does have some fight in him. not high enough to be a pro tho. definitely not a con

    Heading and jumping can be a con if you intend to use him as a ST , but for a Cam , again , no problem.

    • Thank you for reading this Long Review, I thought since he is so expensive and untradable , some might actually want a more in depth and detailed review to set up their minds.

    Suggesting whether to go for him or not... i can't really give you a straight answer. i can say he is beastly , but if your team isn't at least worth 3-4 million coins , spending 800k on an untradable might not be the best idea! the packs i got back got me maybe 75k of the cost back so... don't count on the packs too much

    God Tier (Worth Millions)

    I know this card seems expensive, but wow it is good. It is always risky to pay for a POTM so early, but honestly Reus' informs past 88 rated will be a lot more expensive than this SBC (side-note: I would recommend doing the gold upgrade SBC a lot to get a high rated player, I got Godin and it saved me so much money). He is one of the most fun cards to use. I have him playing CF in a 433(5). His chance creation is solid; it...

    Perfect striker

    Reus is by far the best player I've used in this Fifa. This is comparing him to the likes of futmas son, prime raul and some other great players. He is definitely an endgame player, and is actually worth the money provided you don't have any of the other Reus POTM cards. I haven't tried either of his other cards, so I have no way of comparing them, but for under 1 million and a guarantee he's going to get an upgrade to at l...

    Best CAM in Game

    I got Reus in my player picks and was instantly gassed as he's by far the best IF this week. I use him at CAM in a 4-3-3 (4) an he's insane. Shooting: I've used players like Mertens, Son, Dybala, De Bruyne no one has the long shots this man has. You can power drive or finesse from anywhere in the opponents half and I guarantee it will at least test the keeper. Passing: His passing stats a...
