I'm not the richest of FUT players, i don't use real money to play games; everytime there is new good enough Serie A/Premier League player, i make sacrifices to get him, i exchange some of my best untradeables which i don't often use to do the SBCs.
I did the David villa FB SBC, as i had the players to spare for just 60k more, in fact, i panicked, i tought there won't any player i can get in my team, so i tried David villa at 8 chem... not too bad, he scores "nearly" everytime, "nearly" because, everytime, you face Varane, Van Dijk or other physical and fast defender, he's harmless.
So for the first time, i was not happy with an SBC player i had, he's not game changer enough, he won't get me the wins i need. He's just a 4+ player.
2 days later, Perisic is out.
No players left, 10k coins left, only some 83s BUT 3 ifs (one 85 and 2 81).
the 86 one was pretty easy with the 92 David villa, bon débarras!.... but, no coin left, no players left...
Luckily, i packed Saul and Koke in the same pack, which is great having already already the 85 if Portu, with 3 spanish players, i found a way to do it, but had to wait until WL and Rivals rewards are out to actually do it, sacrifying along the way my 87 headliner Zapata, won't get another update anyway ... :'(
The last one was pretty easy, i managed to do it with spending only 15k with the new 83s and 84 i packed.
The actual review
- 10 chems on CAM using the perfect link with Vrsaljko
- ST in a 4-2-3-1 formation
At the begining of everymatch, he goes to a defender to ask him : "What is your name ?", the actual 87+ rated defender responds "Well, my name is...", Perisic interrupt him "IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOUR NAME IS !!"... and goal, just like that.
Corner ? Goal.
Longshot from the left side of the pitch ? Goal.
Longshot from the right side of the pitch ? Goal.
Left foot ? Goal.
Right foot ? Goal.
*insert opportunity here* ? Goal.
I actually managed to beat my nemessis, Varane and Ramos with Courtois! me , the average gold 2/3 player managed to finally do it, and with style and multiple times, because you know, everyone has the same team.
Pace 9.4/10 :
He feels so fast with the ball, and everytime he goes behind a defender, it's nearly impossible to catch him, coupled with his strength/ballance/size.
Shooting 10/10 :
What a finisher ! with 5* WF, don't think too much, just shoot, anyway, anywhere, it's a Goal!.
Passing 10/10 :
I don't know why, his passes are so good, even though i have players with better passing ratings than him, he's incredible. As i said before, im an average player, mainly because my passing game is not always on point, with Perisic, i actually manage to do those godamn through balls somehow.
Dribbling 9.5/10 :
The combinations of his physicality, pace and agility is just not fair for opponents, you don't need to do skill moves whatsoever, he's on autopilot mode.
Defending 6.4/10 :
even though you'll miss out one of the best st/cams in the game, you can actually play him with a more defensive role, i think he's a pretty good CM, with his stamina, he actually steals the ball so easily as an ST.
Physicalty 10/10 :
This is where he broke the game, the problem with tall players like Van Dijk, is that even though they have 90+ jumping, thay are sometimes too late to get the ball because of a lack in agility, that's where Perisic comes, it's simply unbelievable ho good his headers are, coupled with good enough ballance(for a 186 cm guy) and agility, his strenght feels so much more than "just" 88.
i don't have a conclusion, i needed one because there is an introduction, just get the player, you won't regret it.
- You won't have to say, "he has CR7, im doomed" anymore, your oponnent will say "he has Perisic, im doomed" instead.
- Corners = goals.
- Longshots = goals.
- Play him with another fast ST, his passes are too great to not get the most of it.
- Made me play enjoy the game as i finnaly have a chance against high rated teams.
- Not the cheapest, but if you somehow can get it, make sacrifices, don't hesitate.
- Don't finesse shoot with him, not that good, but you'll be stupid to do it with him as his normal ones are pretty much incredible.
I have to start off by saying that I have been a diehard Serie A squad user since FIFA 13. And since 13, where I used SIF Di Natale and IF Miccolli I had never gotten the same results with any strikers from the league. This year, I started off with Lasagna who I still use as a super sub and Immobile who I had for quiet a while. Nonetheless, neither really did it for me in terms of actually fitting my style of play. It is odd to say but I don't really have an specific style of play, I just go with whatever comes to my mind and if the players adapt it's great, but if they don't... it's game over for me. I also tried out IF and Carniball Immobile, both of which I had little luck with, and FFS Cutrone who was a good striker, just not my type of striker. I sold both of them during FUT Birthday hoping that'd they'd come out with an SBC for the rumored ST Perisic, and thankfully EA delivered with CAM Perisic. Now, let me tell you, he can literally play anywhere. You want him to play CAM, he can, you want him on either wing? Well, he can do just that. You want him as a CM? I'm pretty sure he'd deliver. But, let me tell you, if you play this guy as a striker you will get your money's worth. Not only it this guy fast, but he can dribble, he can pass, he can shoot, he can jump, he can head it, hell he's amazing at intercepting passes thanks to that 73 interceptions. He's the most complete striker I have used this year in FUT, and although I haven't used Ronaldo I'm fairly certain he's as close as any other player will get to. Not convinced yet? Well, although I used him in a 3-5-2 formation, next to SIF Belotti. He'd be a great target man in a lone striker formation, he's got the heigh, strength, and speed to pretty much do it all by himself. I'm telling you, this guy is a must get for anyone with a Serie A squad, or wants a super sub that will make you want to build a team around him. Thanks to him I finally got to division 4, he really got me through it. The guy can do things that you'd think unreal for any player. But he can surprise you, specially with that 5* WF and 4* skills, he's literally as complete as they come. So, please, do yourself a favour and get him. You won't be sorry.
Dribbling sometimes feels sluggish
Where do we start? I've was so disappointed when Perisic didn't get a FUT Birthday card at first but then they released this beauty.
Holy crap I was excited, took me only 5 minutes to do the SBC and boy was he worth it. I have played 15 games with him in Div 5 as a ST and slapped on a Hawk chemistry card to boost his pace and jumping. That has resulted in 23 goals and 4 assists in those 15 matches.
- Let's start talking about his shooting, his finishing is only 86 but feels like in the mid 90's, same with the long shots. He hits the target almost everytime I shoot with him.
- His dribbling is very good, but can feel a little bit sluggish with his 83 agillity at times but it doesn't really affect him that much.
- Perisic' physicality is just superb, his 89 jumping combined with his 6'1'' height (186 cm) he feels unbeatable in the air. winning headers is pretty easy.
- And that 94 stamina, my God he can run almost the whole game without getting tired. He's not weak either with his 83 strength
All in all I'm super happy with this card, really fits the meta.
10/10 would recommend.
- Really good pace
- Shooting and heading is excellent
- Very strong with the ball
- Just an overall superb player
- Don't really have any cons to this card, maybe a little low agility sometimes
- Maybe his SBC price which is 350k
My team was already good,but I needed a real game changer.I am a div 4 player and average gold 3 in WL.When this Perisic came out,I said:I need it.After 5 days I completed it.After some matches,I wasn't enthusiastic (used as ST).Then I switched him CF,behind flashback Villa and,oh my god,he is absolutely incredible.He is really fast,his stamina is really good (he is not tired even in ET)his shot is really powerful and clinical,his heading is really good and he can physically fight with a lot of elite defenders,his dribbling is good,but sometimes he feels a bit clunky because of balance(not the best).I've completed a lot of SBC's,this is by far the best I've ever done.I paid him only 200k because I had some players in my club,and for that price he is an absolute steal
He has only one little con,not really evident
