This review is based on the gameplay after the Finesse shot patch (late jan) with a few games short off 100 games played with the card,on basic chem style mostly on champs and div3.
since this is a Gk review its gonna be pretty short , so I'll just jump into it
when outside the box time finesse shots were around, Courtois and Neuer were my go to keepers but then the patch came out... and suddenly i found courtois conceding annoying across the goal shots and his reactions were poor on low drivens. with Neuer i was happy about reactions, but his rushes out of goal trait gave away countless sweaty open goals to second strikers.
So i had to go out and buy myself the best goalie in the game supposedly right?
I've found out games are decided by a goal or two if my opponent is decent, so its SOOO important to have a goalie that saves those 1-2 shots in every game that every other goalie fails to save.
this is not over exaggerating by all means, he kept a clean sheet on his first 12 rivals matches to set my mind if paying 800k for a keeper is a good idea or not!
I'm telling you! this guy is absolutely insane! i cant remember a single goal that i conceded that i was like ; its DeGea's faut!
having him really helped me win more games by saving shots that my opponent's keeper couldn't get near to. and it ended up really changing my game as i was winning those games that one goal decides the winning side!
forget about the negative comments, forget about those who trash talk him because they think he didn't deserve to get TOTY
for all i care. this is the best goalkeeper coins can buy you in this game. by a mile! hands down!
Reflexes of Spiderman in 1on1s
Diving animations are quite unique and well timed
Kicking (you'll never overlook this stat after this card)
Handling is shockingly great!
Pace , rushing out of goal in a bling of an eye
Positioning: idk tho, diving is so good that i dont feel his saves come from his positioning. his reach is incredible.
I'd say Price... but nah. play a few games and you'll know what you've paid for.
