I was on EA Access and played a few drafts. I won the draft at the second attempt and packed Kevin De Bruyne. I created a really decent starter team. Depay, Eder Militao and De Bruyne was the main stars.
Played him at CAM in either 4-2-3-1 or 4-1-2-1-2. The dribbling is so good. The ball is glued to his foot. Left as right. Shooting outside the box is amazing. Passing is perfect, just look where you want to pass and the ball will drop down exactly where you planned. Pace is decent for CAM. If you consider to buy this card.. JUST DO IT. Kevin is the best CAM with Neymar/Messi. He can score, assist, make any defender look silly.
He is a game changer and you will not be disappointed.
Pace is decent
Shooting (extra good outside the box)
Passing is pin point
5 star weak foot
4 star skill moves
Maybe strength, but the dribbling of this card is so good so you won't notice it.
So let's start to say I packed him untradeble so I may be biased but despite that I would definetly buy him for anywhere around 300K he's better than both Hazard, Aguero and Ben Yedder OTW/IF
What so good about him then? he makes everthing so easy his positoning paired with his well rounded stats makes him perfect for any central postion, would play him anywhere from CM to ST
He feels so responsive and always there to make the difference
He also comes with a sort of scare factor as he's so good people won't even bother to tackle him sometimes and it's very easy to make people rage after scoring a couple with him
Only used in weekend league and a couple of div rivals matches
+ Insane passing stats
+ Very good infront of goal
+ Game changer
Maybe his pace depending on how you play him otherwise almost perfect.
Maybe price but he's very much worth the premium
Kevin De Bruyne is without a doubt the best gold CAM in the game. His shots, passes, and dribbling are insane. One slight problem. I rarely play with a CAM. I almost always play 4-3-3 holding or false nine. Kevin De Bruyne is my right central midfielder with attacking runs set to get forward (basically how he plays at city). At CM his passes are brilliant and he can pop up in the right position and bang them in. He Just not as much as he would at CAM. So when you see the stats, you'll probably think they are very low. But consider that he is a CM and he has defensive responsibility too. When at CM, he can really dictate the tempo of the game when he is playing well. I love his skills and weak foot and his Stamina is excellent. When I got him I used Maestro Chem but that was probably a mistake because his passing, dribbling and shooting didn't need much of a boost. I recently switched to Hawk so he'd be stronger and faster. His form has picked up a bit since then His dribbling is excellent still and so are his passes. His tackling is poor but he has enough stamina and high defensive work rate means he can at least be effective closing down his opponent and not giving him so much space. I only play a 4-2-3-1 when I'm in a slump and need to change things and he is Incredible at CAM but I'm not gonna change all my tactics just for him. All in all, he's a wonderful CAM but is still excellent operating in Central Midfield. Here is the squad I'm currently using him in: https://www.futbin.com/20/squad/16238643
Work rates (I know some people don't like a high defensive work rate at cam but I play him at CM so that's a pro)
Without a chemistry style to boost physichal he's not very strong
Bought him 2 weeks ago,and i can tell you that he is an endgame player.Really helps me against drop back/high pressure opponents.My opinion is based only on WL games because this is the most competitive mode in the game obv.
Shooting-out of this world,left,right foot doesn't matter everything goes in.
Passing-i don't think that i have to say something about it.Stats speak themselves
Defending-above the average, i put on him stay forward instruction but sometimes chase down opponents like a Pitbull (superb stamina) and interccept the ball
Physical-as i mentioned good stamina and strength helps out to hold the ball in delayed situations
Pace+Dribbling-Usually the gameplay is awful so i don't depend on his pace and dribbling stats.Sometimes KDB turns like a tractor and can't take on more than 1 player.That's why the most appropriate thing to do with him is the strafe dribbling in order to open up space for his magical passes.
I have been using De Bruyne in 2 different in-game formations : at CAM in a 4-2-3-1 before patch 5 and at LM in a 4-4-2 (2) after patch 5 and I have to warn you : since the shot nerf, the man has been just bang average. I used to play Hazard on the wing with him at CAM and everything was going fine, like other reviews said : huge shots, great dribbling, great passing. Then EA just broke the game with passing and shooting nerf and the man cannot cope. I already sold Hazard because he couldn't score to save his life but the only reason I'm keeping KDB at the moment is because I love the player and hope EA cancels this idiotic nerf. He still is a 91 playmaker in game though so if you are not a mad trickster or agility merchant, the man is decent but I'd say the value for money is gone. You're better off buying Griezmann or Ben Yedder and curve the ball from outside the stadium with this mad OP finesse shot
Everything besides pace (before patch 5)
Now: passing and dribbling are decent
Will get pushed by sweaty CDMs like sissoko (who doesn't ?)
After patch : shoots wide every single time, passing not OP anymore
