I have never written a review before but after using this card purely in fut champions I feel like I have too. This year in fifa I have been blessed to use CR7, OTW Ben Yedder, Moments Lineker and Larsson, and Prime King Kenny but none of these players can be put in the same conversation as my boy Richie! I am usually a gold 2 and gold 1 player and for the first time ever I hit elite 3 purely because of him, he scored at least 2-3 goals each game in fut champs bodying CBs like VVD, Rio, David Luiz, he literally toyed with them game in game out like it was his little brother. At first when I bought him I thought he would be clunky because of his balance but WOW was I wrong, his balance is not a problem at all especially after putting an engine on him. He is also very fast, now obviously he doesn't feel like Kent but when he's side by side with ANY defender he will definitely pass him and will rarely get thrown off the ball. His passing is not a problem at all actually its very good and for his shooting I swear he scores everything I have always struggled with players scoring on a consistent basis but not for him I literally press O and its a goal. I was also surprised of how good of a dribbler he was and how he rarely loses the ball, Im quite a skiller myself and I was very happy with his dribbling! Btw this is all based off FUT champions
Pace can outrun any defender
Shooting just click O and its a goal, he literally scores everything
Physicality even side by side with VVD, Rio, FB Ramos he will not get thrown off the ball he's a BEAST
In the last few days i read and watched reviews about TOTS Richarlison and i am now writing (for the first time ever) my review since i feel like that for once my opinion will make things a lot easier. The problem i have with other reviews is that they are either saying that my boy Richarlison is a fraud or they are stating he is the best player ever. Alright, let's get into this.
Since the release of his Shapeshifter card i thought he looked good but i was a bit scared by the price. One day i played with him in draft and well, i instantly loved the card and that made me buy him for my team. After loving the SS, the only thing i could have done was picking up this new TOTS Version.I played 28 games with him(all fut champions and i finished 20-8), he scored 33 and assisted 15. Played him at striker in a 4-2-3-1 and i slapped an engine to boost his lack of balance. Let's get into details:
He comes in at 92 acceleration and 97 sprint speed. Is he fast? Yes. But is he that fast? NO.
If you are the type of player that spams triangles all game then stay away from him. He can get past defenders but that's mainly because of his strength.
Prime R9 shooting. There really isn't much to say His shooting ability is phenomenal, he really has that 5 star weak foot and the 99 shot power feels like 100.
Despite the 80 long shots i scored 3/4 goals from outside of the box and one of them was totally off balance and with his left foot.
Don't really know what to say, it's really good but you are not buying him for his passing ability. This guy is a finisher.
This is probably the part that scares you the most and i get that. He's tall and tall players don't fit the meta at 100%. Even with engine (every dribbling stats above 90!!) he doesn't feel nowhere near Ben Yedder/Neymar/Saint Maximin/Eusebio. You can probably compare him to Son.
We don't care about this BUT his aggression is gonna provide you 1/2 goals per weekend league.
Great. This guy feels big and his strength "makes up" for the pace. He doesn't outrun defenders but he gets past them thanks to his Physical. Stamina wise he is insane (he can last 120 minutes).
Instructions: Get in behind, Stay forward.
Is he worth the price? Yes (payed 1.64kk) but i have to say that he is not the best value for money.
Should you try him out? Depends (if you are looking for a pure finisher go for it otherwise look for someone else).
ST or CAM? imo ST, I'd rather have someone more agile at CAM.
Pair him up with a small fast player (Yedder, Neymar...)
Any better option? He is better than OTW/POTM Ben Yedder and FB Lacazette but i don' think he is worth 1 million more. He is worth 4/500k more than his Shapeshifter.
And that's it guys, hope you all find this useful.
First of I got him in my Prem Guaranteed Tots pack (which was surprising because i always get Kainz's and Gaitans's from guaranteed packs, when i saw Brazilian i thought no not again not Alison but when ST showed i was so glad. I was trying him out in prem icon swaps. I kept on basic to see what needed improved and i was quite annoyed he felt a bit clunky with his 80 or so balance and he's tall so he doesn't feel agile (btw i was also trying out a moments klose that i packed that day who's awful and can't shoot to save his life.). So i sold klose and played Richy with 2nd Potm Werner my current striker. And i put an engine on Richy. I couldn't believe the difference he felt really agile but not ben yedder or kent agile. If your through on goal with him just press b or O it will go in no matter what. His passing is so good for a striker. His 5 star wf is insane with his shot, and 4star skills still means he can do a fair amount of skills. he lasts the 120 minutes if you need him to go that long with 91 stam. His physicality means he can outstrengthen most cb's. Med/High work rates are good but put stay forward on him because he usually finds himself in a false 9 position when defending. He has great link being Brazilian and from the prem. I've used prime moments RR9 in 2 drafts and Richarlison is just as good if not better. In my 10 games i've played with him I've scored 24 goals and got 18 assists. P.S must use at striker to use full finishing ability
5 star weak foot
Stam and Physicality top notch.
Lethal celebration (the bird walk thing) it gets more rage quits than the shhh.
Balance a bit low.
If had 5star skills would be nice but 4star is fine.
Longshots is a bit low had 60% conversian rate from outside the box.
Is quite expensive.
92 accelaeration and 97 sprint speed would be nicer if they swapped but is still maxed out pace with engine or hawk.
