Alright guys, I decided to create a futbin account just for this review since I can`t get my head around the beastlyness of this card. I have no idea how people usually sructure their reviews, so I`ll just go for it in my own style I guess.
First of all, if you`re thinking of doing this SBC - do not hesitate, go for it. If you`re currently unsure or against doing it, pull yourself together and throw out some untradeables or simply pay the 30k, it`s more than worth it. In fact, if this Bolasie card had better links or would play in the premier league he´d probably be 150k-ish which would honestly be a completely legit price tag.
I played him with a sniper chem style in the above squad, switched to a 4222 in game, subbed out Soares for 87 Politano and played Bolasie at left striker alonngside the Italian. In 7 Div 4 Rivals Matches he scored me 8 goals and provided 2 assists.
In all seriousness and without any exaggerating: this guy made me enjoy FIFA again. He is more than the complete package. He is completely overwhelming in every regard.
First of all, his stock is insane, very similar to Anderson Talisca but slightly broader. In contrast to Talisca though, he is extremely agile and fast to react - he turns soo damn quick, its legit close to Ben Yedder. The most impressive part about the dribbling and maybe the entire card (alongside shot power) however is the fact that he just cant lose the ball. I came up against Ferdinands, Van Dijks, Varanes, they were mostly unable to disposses him because of his sheer power and amazing technical abilty - deadly combination in FIFA. On top of that he has 5 star skill moves which is such an enjoyable feature to have in this game, especially when he randomly puts in a rabona cross, or no look backheel pass without you even telling him to do so. It may not be very efficient, but it makes him so flashy and unpredictable and also extremely FUN, which is the main aspect about the card
Pace is obvoiusly more than enough, feels just like the card suggests, whereas his passing is so much better than you`d think. If it wasn´t for Coronas inconsistency in front of goal he would have gotten 5 plus assists easily. Short passing is also decent for one-twos, had no problems whatsoever with that stat
As mentioned earlier, his shot power is second to none. He was legitimately THE ONLY PLAYER I was able to score a longshot with. It was a long range curve effort, that ended up being a complete rocket anyway. Ter Stegen just stood there in a mixture of awe and shame. You have to remember though, each time you put in a shot, he fires an absoulte fucking rocket toward the goal so they may not be super precise each time. His finishing though, is so much better than suggested, obviously boosted by a Sniper, he didn`t miss a sitter and surprised me with two or three insane finishes I wouldn`t trust Messi to put away each time.
To conclude my review, I would like to compare him to supposedly similar players or alternatives:
Martial: pro - better league, con: 15 times the price, sluggish, worse weak foot, worse skill moves, worse finishing, not as strong
Guedes FUtmas: pro - similar price, better league, con - far less physical, not as skillfull, not as reactive, not nearly as present, far weaker shot
Inform Promes: pro - even faster, similar finishing, half the price con: crappy league, feels clunky at times, way weaker, inconsistent, not as skillfull
So all in all, Bolasie is the best value winger in the game by a landslide excluding gameplay-based cards like Politano who fits the meta very well but isn´t as enjoyable to use as this Bolasie in my opinion
Well, where do i start? Bolasie has always been one of those cards that attracted me for some reason. Hes tal, fast and surprisingly agile. Sadly his shooting was never the best. When i saw this card coming out, i instantly did him. In the worst case i would have spent 3K (got some untradeables) for some good memories and maybe even upcoming icon swap challenges. Luckily i also just had enough coins for baby Dalglish, so i completely rebuilt my team. Thats the reason for my bad team atm because all players are untradeables besides King Kenny. In the future i plan to place an Icon from icon swaps where Tolisso plays, and then play either Corona/Luis Rodriguez or Salah/IF Walker on the right, while up front ill play TOTGS Martinez and Scream Sabitzer in the middle.
In my first game i brought Bolasie on in the first minute and i was like: Wow, this guy is actually playable. So after changing my team around i startes him for the upcoming 3 games. I applied the sniper chem on him, mainly to boost his agility, but it also synergizes really well with his shooting stats, while also boosting his reactions and composure. I played him up front besides Kenny, and he completely outshined him. He didnt feel like a winger, this guy was the ultimate poacher. He was strong in the build up play, because its incredibly hard to get the ball away from him because of his dribbling and his big body. And then all of a sudden, he started a perfect run where you just had to play a through ball and he would finish it 9 out of 10 times. I just played 4 games with him because ill go to spain now and wont be able to play for 2 weeks and i just wanted to let you guys know how good he is, as long as the sbc is still available. If youd like it, i can write a more detailed review in a couple of weeks.
He even made 2 players ragequit in the first half (otherwise he would have probaly scored even more). And just imagine how he will play like if sporting just get through one stage more!
Cheers for reading and enjoy christmas time!
Pace: even without a boost, he had just enough pace to penetrate the defense time and time again. I think 88 acceleration and 94 sprint speed is just enough in this years fifa.
Finishing: his weak foot felt like a 5*. I think i scored 3 with his left and 3 with his right. He didnt score fancy goals, he just banged the into the back of the net. His 91 positioning, 95 finishing, 97 shot power and 88 composure really did the job there.
Dribbling combined with physicality: I honestly think that this guy is one the best players when it comes to that combination. He can push off defenders with 86 strength and 84 aggression (and hes 6'2"!), while keeping the ball at his feet with 99 dribbling and 95 ball control.
Agility: His agility needs to be boosted, but with sniper he gets to 92, where he actually felt quite smooth for such a tall guy.
Curved shots: Was probably his biggest con. With sniper (which i think you need) you cant boost his curved shots. He actually missed some quite good chances from the edge of the box. But sometimes you can just dribble your way through and smash it in.
Hi and welcome to another of my reviews. Today, it's gonna be the 84 rated RTTF Europa League Yannick Bolasie. He's got 92 pace, 84 shooting, 84 passing, 88 dribbling and 83 physical. I played him in the ST position in a 4-2-3-1 with Corona at CAM, Griezmann at RAM and Ben Yedder ar LAM and the CDM was De Jong and Sissoko. He got 11 goals and 5 assists in 11 games.
Firstly, I did not test his TOTS from Fifa 15, but I heard he was one of the best player in this game. For this card, I decided between Artist (for the long passing) and Sniper (for the finishing). Finally I put a Artist, because I thought the shot power would help the finishing and I like when my ST does some good passes.
For the pros, he feels fast, not fast like a Mertens or Insigne, but for his shape, he was quite fast. I was worried about that cause of the 6'2'', but it wasn't a problem. His shot power was really nice, the keepers makes sometimes some saves but you knew it was difficult. Was it help Bolasie for the finishing? The answer was no and you will see why later. He did some very good passes probably because of the Artist chem style, he created some opportunities. Another thing I was worried it was the agility and the balance and because of the Artist chem style, I think it helps him to do skill moves easily. Strength and aggression was insane, he can hold the ball against VVD, it is not everybody that can do that. The price (35k) is good, but we shall see if he will gets another upgrade and if it is, I just cannot imagine how good would he be.
For the bad things, obviously, the finishing is a big problem, because I did not put Sniper. At 2 bars, the ball doesn't go a bit over the ground. It just stay on the ground. The med/low wasn't a problem imo because the stamina issue. If he was high/med, that would be a problem, because he would be exhausted at the 60th minute. With the med/low, he comes a little bit on def, but it pretty rare and sometimes, even if I said go behind the defense in my instructions, he doesn't want to do it. Imo, it is not a problem, but the stamina is a problem. You have to change him at the 75th minute because he will not do something after this. He will be exhausted. You should not play him in a wide formation (LM, RM, ...) it would be worst. The nation is a problem, but the league is not a big problem because of all the special cards we have in the Liga Nos right now (Bruno Fernandez MOTM Europa League, Gedson Fernandez and Corona RTTF, IF or FUTMAS Acuna, ...)
So the question : Is the beast back? No and even with the full upgrade, he will not be as powerful as the TOTS Bolasie from Fifa 15 just because of the meta of the game.I could be wrong, but I don't think he will.
If you have any question, you can dm me on Twitter on @MRLouis_Charles and I will answer it ASAP. Thank you for reading it and have fun with him.
