I don’t think anyone can argue against Cristiano being the best gold card of Fifa 19. Amazing runs, lethal shots and of course far post headers for days. In the first few weeks of Fifa 20 some people have been claiming that the likes of Mbappe, Messi and Neymar could prove themselves to be more useful this year. I’ll present my take on whether CR7 is worth his price tag of 1,4M, which probably will rise a lot over the coming months.
There’s one simple reason that I’m able to write this review - I packed him. Packing CR7 is something that simply doesn’t happen, but in my first WL rewards it actually did. A first owner Cristiano is nearly impossible to obtain, so I decided not to sell him and immediately built a squad around him. Worth mentioning that I’ve played him in a 300k squad, and I’m just a gold 2 player, so don’t take my review too seriously.
You don’t need me to tell you that he is fast, strong and has great ball control and finishing ability, you can check his stats by yourself. Being the second highest rated player in the game, he will obviously feel great in game in almost every aspect. We want to know if he is worth the price and will he make a difference?
Key pro: Finishing
When you buy CR7 you’re getting the best and most reliable finisher in the game, excluding icons. Just like in real life, Cristiano is arguably the most complete striker there ever was. Whether you like to play counter attacks, possession, crossing, spamming skill moves - you can’t go wrong with this guy. He bangs in goals that I certainly don’t deserve to score. Driven shots, power shots, finesse shots like I haven’t seen since POTM Son in Fifa 17. People saying headers are impossible to score this year and that 1v1s are inconsistent- Cristiano disagrees. He knows exactly where to be and if you find him with a pass he is more likely to score than not.
Key con: Balance
No review is reliable without at least one negative. Looking at his in game stats, the 71 balance is the one to pop out as a potential negative. And to be fail, he doesn’t feel like he has more. If you’re the guy that likes to spam fake shot stops and drag backs and probably goes ”Ooh! Haa!” when doing so, you’ll not get the best out of him and are better off getting someone like Neymar or Mertens. Engine will boost his balance quite nicely and I haven’t found it to be a problem myself, but if there is one aspect that could be improved, it’s his balance.
I don’t want to make a statement saying that he is absolutely worth it. It depends, if you’re a guy with 1.5M liquid and is looking for the most competitive squad possible, you’re likely not get the best result from buying CR7 and surround him with a mediocre squad. But when you use him, you’ll certainly feel the 1.4M (or whatever) coins every time he touches the ball or gets a scoring opportunity. Is he worth twice as much as Neymar? Maybe he is, maybe not, but he surely is something else.
Hi, for many years I was trying to get my hands on this card. This year I was lucky enought to finally get him. As I play on PC price tag at the time of purchase was 1,8million. It is A LOT of coints. At the beginning I was a bit sceptical. Many pros stepped away from him this year as current meta favours more agile players like Messi or Neymar when earlier, especially FIFA 19, physicality and aerliar threat was the key. I still had to try him my self...
Ronaldo plays for me as a striker in 4-2-2-2, 4-1-2-1 and 4-2-3-1 formation. He is a part of amazing attacking 4 playing alongside Messi, Neymar and Mbappe.His record of 122 goals in 166 games might be not very impresive but my goals spread along these 4 with Ronaldo still being the main man.
Due to drop back meta and counter attacks being so effective I like my strikers to help with defending. Once I get back in possesion of the ball I want them to make runs behind opponent defence. Ronaldo is perfect for this role.Don't be fooled by his Low defensive workrate. Due to his amazing pace and physicality this guy will be running up and down for entire 90 minutes.Also his defensive skills have really impressed me as he is more than capable of winning the ball back by himself.
Chemistry style (Engine-the game changer)
When I first bought him he had hawk chem style. It gives nice boost to pace, shooting and physical stats however Ronaldo already excels in these areas. After playing few games with him I noticed why pro players stepped away from him. He was a bit stiff when he was on the ball. I decided to try Engine on him to boost his weaker spots and it was a game changer, Engine boosts him to 95 pace, 97 dribbling (92 agility, 97 ball control, 99 reaction/dribbling) and 87 passing. He is also 6'2 with 78 strenght . Now he can match Neymar and Messi in dribbling adding his strenght on top of that.
I could say he is a monster. I could say he is the greatest, I could write entire essey how good he is but... it's simply Cristiano Ronaldo
Shooting - Best finisher in the game. Inside/outside the box, left or right feet.... It really doesn't matter for him
Pace- Varane/Militao won't keep you safe from this guy
Dribbling-With Engine chem style he can be matched only by Messi or Neymar
Headers- With headers and crossing being so bad these stats don't make much of a difference however if EA will fix it and make them more viable Ronaldo will only gain in value, He was and still is the king in the air.
Price: Yeah, he is the most expensive gold card in the game.Not everyone can get him... but it is a good thing. Lower tier players (auba, griezman etc) will lose fast in value. When it comes to top end cards they tend to keep value over much longer period of time. Also when prime icons and TOTS comes out Ronaldo still will be high tier player. If EA fix headers/crossing his value will drastically go up.
Require engine chem style - ok, not sure if it is really a con. Engine makes him the best card in the game. His shooting is unmatched so it really doesn't need a boost.People who are obsessed with 99 pace might count it as a con.
Hands down the best player I have used this Fifa. he delivered for hei price, being 1,6 million coins he saved my weekend league. 41 goals in 20 fut champs games, including a hat trick in his first game for my club. He is so clinical, and composed on the last third on the field. He can basically shoot from anywhere, recomend him 10/10. He feels like a better Kenny Daglish.
Shooting- scores from anywhere, always he is so clinical on goal
Pace. with a hunter he feels so swift with and without the ball
Dribbel- he has got crazy reactions and ball control, he feels so safe and composed with the ball
Height- he is tall and very fast, he scores some headers in this Fifa, thats says a lot
strengt- in real life he is much stronger than in this game, he gets pushed away to much for my liking,
well, i got ronaldo for 1.5 mil , thought about his price alot, however when i tried him , he was a beast.
eventhough fifa 20 needs very fast players, ronaldo was always there to sprint, he was surprisingly pacey enough to go through players like virgil and varane.
we all know how good is, but believe me he was clinical in-front of goal, and his finnesse shots were incredibly op, banging top bins ,however, i recommend to use the curved driven shots when being outside the box especially in the middle
he got 9 assists in 13 games even when he played next to mertens and dybala which had better passing stats than him, but he got the most assists out of them, his short passing and fancy passes where deadly and fun,
with 71 balance which was my major concern, i didnt feel that he lacks it, he was light and fast when dribbling and skilling through players that had good defending stats which amazed me the most
i can only say that he defended and cleared the ball a couple of times when opposition had a corner which made me feel good about his heading because i barely use his jumping or heading accuracy stats
he was strong enough to push fullbacks when being on their side but i suffered abit when i faced good defenders which had better aggression than him
i really recommend buying him if you had a serie a or a icon player next to him, he is a real beast
A long time ago, you may trust or not, Cristiano Ronaldo was a "selfish-skilled-winger" who cared more to mirror himself and mock the defenders instead of be effective for the team. Looking at what this player became along years is quite incredible because Ronaldo in real life is one of the most effective players in the world. Not only amazing for the technical level of his play but more than all the other things this is what he is: effective.
How this player plays in FIFA? Well this year I'm
really tired to hear "this player got less than 90 balance&agility =
unusable". Really men, stop following like dumbs most of the youtubers and
think with your head. Football is a team game, you cannot expect to win games
with a single player, and the best teams actually got a mix for different
players with different features. And more important the players have to fit
your style of play.
Ronaldo is your man if you need an effective player that turns opportunity in goals. In an easy game he will score 4 goals. In tight games he will score the decisive goal. This is what you have to expect from him. What else you could ask?
I play him as left striker in a 4 4 2 formation with some variants (the left winger come close to the center for one-two touches and one of the central median is set like a box-to-box player).
I give him instructions to stay wide and cut inside and he performs very well, actually on an excellent level.
Now, a couple of game situations may clarify what I mean for “effective”.
Attacking scenario number one: on a counter I was able to launch my striker (maybe was FS James) in a 1v1 situation: he kicks on the far post but the keeper was able to deflect the shot. What happened is that the ball rebounds with a slow lob that probably had to fall in the left corner of the small area near the net, ready to be blocked by the keepr or swept by defender. And actually the defender was ready to sweep the ball, but very close to him Ronaldo just cut on the left from the center of the box and anticipate the opponent. He was so unbalanced that falls down.
During the fall he hits the ball with his left foot. Goal.
Attacking scenario number two: Ronaldo receives the ball in a wide spot 35 meters away from the goal, on the left side. He makes a run pointing the center of the box: I was something 3 goals ahead and I want to try the longshot. The ball runs like a cannon ball on the far post and the keeper manage to touch it. His hand was bended by the power of the shot. Goal. In the replay I can see that for the violence of the shot a piece if the pitch flyes up than 3 meters. Nice detail.
If you got the coins just buy him. If you will spend less than 40% of your budget I think you manage to build a decent team around him.
Game changer, if you build up a decent team around him
I buy him when his price 1,4 million coins and it's all worth it, to see his rate goal per game 1.1 per match. Unbelievable shots from outside a penalty box without using finesse. His balance might be his one of the problem, but as long as you can manage the ball on his foot, he always can scored a banger. Headers are broken in FIFA 20 but not on him.
Balance (all of his goals will get rid of this thought)
I am playing in DIV 1 and get in FUT Champs e3. I have bought him already three times, because I wanted to change my team to try something out but after I sold him, I recognized that he is missing. So, if you have the coins for an elite striker, he will be worth it!
So I was playing WL and i had headliner mertens and i decided to see how many coins will i have when ? sell him and how many coins would i have with the rewards.So thursday morning I claimed my WL and rivals rewards and I got a lenglet out of my packs and then I saw that i had enough coins to buy Ronaldo for 340k(PC price) and i was waiting for WL to start to try him with an engine chem style but i played some games at rivals too and OMG what a card.His pace is amazing and his shooting is so smooth and I that i was satisfied with it.His dribbling is amazing and his balance is not a problem.His passing is also very good and with that engine chem style its even better.By far the best striker i have used this year.He is by far the best striker i have used this year.(btw i haven't used Messi but i will get him by next week and i will write a review for him and also i haven't played with top ST like pele and r9).He also has 5* SM and 4*WF almost everyone will say that his 4* WF might be a problem but believe its insane but he might miss like 3 easy shot at 10 matches but its still pretty good.His physical is ok not the best not the worst but he will fight to keep the ball in his feet.
