Dennis Bergkamp - 92 - Icon
Iceman on fire
By nicvok, 13-01-2020

I used the base Bergkamp, was utterly trash. Then I used the mid version, which was fine, but not better than some standard CAMs I used before there, like DeBruyne, TOTGS Lewa, IF Suarez, Bobby Firminho... Then I decided to upgrade to prime Iceman and the whole game changed:

He's smooth as hell; perfect ball control, positioning and finishing. Also his vision and passing are excellent to use him as CAM. My level of play is around 1200skill points and Gold1/2 WL. I tried him as ST, RAM and CAM in a 4231 in the linked team ( He's clearly perfect in the central roles, no quality difference between ST and CAM. He is able to bully around and finishes almost everything in style - even 1vs1 against MAtS ;) - it doesn't matter wether it's low-driven. power shot or finesseses, while the latter impressed me the most.. From his playingsyle, expecially dribbling and finishingwise I would put him as weird mixture of Messi and Lewandowski. Take the dribbling and smoothness of Messi and pair it up with the body and finishing of Lewa: tata -> prime Iceman. Try this guy out. Have fun on the game again!

  • finishing (he's more than clinical inside the box)
  • weak foot feels like a perfect 5star not anything less
  • finesse shots are excellent
  • ball control and dribbling - insane close control, agility and balance feel way above the numbers
  • composure! When pushed/tackled from behind while shooting, he doesn't even care...
  • flair - this seems weird, but he even though hasn't 5 star skills (actually wtf EA?!) he has some unique flair animations when passing and controlling the ball

I've found no real heavy cons. Some could be:

  • stamina is fine enough for 90min, but becomes critical in overtime
  • miss 5 star skills so bad on this guy
  • speed off the ball feels exactly like mid 80's (which is still perfect for a CAM)
  • M/M workrates; while I never had the feeling of wrong or missing runs or even bad positioning
