97 - TOTS
5.0
Just WOW
By FORLAN6, 10-05-2020

as an elite 3 player I have used many strikers so far from prime moments Butra to 94 R9 but this card is different gravy, the ball sticks to his feet and he shoots the ball like no other player.

his movement is class always finding space and making runs. I was sceptical about the skills like many others are but instead using L2 dribbling it almost felt like cheating as hes very very agile but also strong as bull.

The Best Striker
By SpecterWo1f, 13-05-2020

He is the best striker i have ever used in FIFA. I have a catalyst because i felt maximum pace upgrade is important, he is very fast. His dribbling is not clunky at ALL. His dibbling feels very smooth. I replaced him for the striker role for my 94 neymar, and he is MUCH better. His finishing is unbelievable. His passing is great, and same with physical. I sold moments socrates for this card, and i am very happy with my decision. This card is worth so much more than it really is, I feel like i paid for a person where if i tap b, it goes in all the time, and he is very fun. For the amount i paid this card is amazing, and i only have him at 8 chem. I feel like for this price this is an unfair card to have.

Totally amazing

Weak foot

Skill moves, but everything else makes it not a problem!

Chewy Suárez devours defences ( Luis Suárez)
By Maneman, 02-06-2020

This card is genuinely mental. It's going to be very hard for me to write a review on him without just spamming the words incredible and insane.


About me - I'm a player who challenges for Elite 3 and Gold 1, and usually achieves these ranks. I'm currently in division 4, which I've dropped to to complete objectives and also to enjoy the game whilst not being able to just smash opponents 10 - 0 without trying. I have good experience with most of the tier 1 top TOTS and icon strikers, so not god tier like Mbappé Bday and R9 PIM, but I've used your TOTS Aguero's, Richarlison, Son, Aubameyang, Benzema and Werner, etc, as well as Dalglish, Butra, etc.. But this card honestly just blows these away.


And no, I'm not writing this review to raise his price, I just tried him after I sold my Son (who I was btw very impressed with but not like this card). I have now sold him but will buy him back after the Ultimate TOTS crash. I also don't love Suárez in real life, so there real is not any preference.


For the price that he's currently at, I can honestly say I am yet to find a striker for less than 1.5/2 million better than El Pistolero.


Getting into the review:



Instructions and set up:


Chewy Suárez led the line of a 4-2-3-1 as a striker behind Ziyech TOTS as a CAM (whose skills compensated for Suárez's brilliantly along with the IF little magic man as a RAM (Leo Messi) and the TIF Senegalese GOAT (Mané man Sadio Mané. Having players behind hm was very useful and bordering on necessary, but you don't need to have a 5* skiller if you don't have one. We used an engine on Chewy.


And it was under this setup that Suárez banged them in in front of the Kop End like he was playing Norwich, bit VVD TOTY like he was Chiellini and scored back heels like every team was Mallorca.


Overall: 9.9:


If this card was 5* 5* he would be the best striker in the game and only R9 PIM could compare. Now I know he's not 5* 5*, but once you realise that his shooting is so insane that his weak foot feels more like a 5* then all we're missing are the skills, which most can get used to. if you can't, then its a shame for you because your going to have to get an Mbappé Birthday or TOTY or R9 to find a same level of striker.


Honestly this cards has everything, absolutely everything, pace over a short distance, broken shooting, an incredible weaker foot, hold up play, supreme passing, balance which amazed me, close control, no clunkiness. When you see his price and how much he's dropping you've got a bargain. F**k that. You've got much more than a bargain. You've got an R9 without skills for 10% of the price.


Pace: 8/10


With the engine, he does have 95 pace, and the acceleration is noticeably better than the sprint speed, but compared to other TOTS cards, he isn't rapid. He's certainly not slow (I'd say he's slightly slower than Richarlison), but he's not as fast as Mbappé and you don't want to be using him as a one sided get-in-behind striker like you do with Jamie Vardy. Once again though, he won't struggle to get in behind, and due to the acceleration he can get in behind over long distances brilliantly, but don't use him to chase down extremely long balls across the whole pitch because a Militia or Konaté may well catch him.


Shooting: 10/10:


Not much to say here. 99 shooting which really does come through. Be it a long shot, inside the box, penalty, near post or finesse, el pistolero will score each and every chance he gets. With his shooting as good as it is, his weak foot is better than most 4 star weak foots - I'd say it is comparable to Son's and slightly worse than Richarlison's. Don't go out of your way to shoot on his weaker side, but if you do he will score it easily. 8 of the 21 he banged in for me were on his left. However, as good as this cards shooting is, he's not limited to being a (just press shoot) striker like I found Richarlison to be.


Passing: 9/10


You can see it with the stats, Suárez's passing stats are absolutely elite for a striker, and compared to other Strikers, his passing is a 10/10. You could easily play him as a central CAM (don't play him on the wing) and his passing would be supreme. Short, long, cross or through ball, you'll struggle to find a pass which Suárez can't make. When you add this to his hold-up abilities and strength, you begin to unlock one of the main roles that Suárez can play- the hold-up man that can then lay it off and so there's no need to have a midfield.


Dribbling: 10/10:


This is where this card goes from 'good for certain people' to lights out insane. I was somewhat worried about Suárez, dribbling and if he would feel clunky. Having used Richarlison, who I found to be a little clunky, I saw that Suárez was an inch taller, weighed more and had the same body type, and this scared me. I feared that Suárez would feel heaving and slow. My biggest fear of the card turned out to be perhaps the key pro.


For a player who is 6 foot tall, Suarez holds an EXTREMELY LOW CENTRE OF GRAVITY in this game, and seems to be much more balanced than Richarlison or Son. It might be the 7 more balance (6 more if you put an engine on both) but Suárez feels like Aguero in terms of balanced. It might also be the 97 STRENGTH and 98 AGRESSION which virtually made it impossible for a defender to knock him of balance. This is the biggest problem I had with Son, the relatively low balance on a 6 foot Striker with extremely low physical meant that I had to constantly dodge defenders or he would just fly of the ball. But when I compared the balance to Richarlison and compared their physique and physicalities I thought Suárez might feel slightly more balanced but not much. I was completely wrong, there is something about this Suárez, beyond his stats which makes him as balanced as Ben Yedder, Messi and co. He seems to constantly be hunched over, in a good, balanced way if this makes sense.


With regards to agility, he feels much more agile than richarlison or a benzema, comparable to son. He obviously doesn't have the lean body type but his 99 AGILITY certainly helps him to feel comparably agile to Ben Yedder and his gang of Mr. Meta's.


He obviously feels silky smooth on the ball as you could imagine, and his turns are very smooth as well


If you're worried about this card's dribbling, I can tell you I was astonished, and not only do you have nothing to be worried about, but it's a key pro.


Defending - N/A / 10:


Scored a header? Nothing else to really say here although he did win the wall back many times with his 97 STRENGTH and 98 AGRESSION.



Physicality: 10/10:


This might be the category which is secretly powering how insane this card is all along. Maybe. We have already talked about how his strength and aggression make him as balanced as a table. But that's just one part to his physicality. The number of attacks which would fail with Son because a defender could just barge him of the ball. Not with Suárez. His physicalities make him a ball magnet and make sure no one can knock him off the ball. But he can also steal the ball of defenders to create seriously dangerous opportunities. So the physicality on this card is more than just 'irrelevant' and 'not meta' on this card; it offers him:

  1. The ability to make him extremely well balanced and not knocked off the ball
  2. The ability to use his hold- up play asset, coupled with his brilliant passing
  3. The ability to steal the ball of defenders and create dangerous opportunities.


In terms of stamina, 99 would have obviously been nice, but he will last the whole game, especially if you use him in the right way.


Weak foot: 4.5/5:


As I said, because of how good his shooting is, Suárez's weak foot feels closer to Son's or Richarlison's (5 star wf strikers) than Aguero's or Aubameyang's (4 star wf strikers). There really is not much of a difference between his two feet.


Skill Moves:3/5:


The biggest, and perhaps only con. There's no way of go glossing this one. How EA classifies a left foot back heel goal as 3 star skills is genuinely confusing but beside the point. Your going to have to suffice with the 3 star skill moves, which do become easier as you get used to it. Because of how good the Berba, Mgeady and scoop spins/ turns are this year, we have forgotten about a lot of other. He can still do heel to heel. We have forgotten about the roulettes which can be very useful, and few players make the most out of even the simple ball roll. You will have no issues with Suárez being able to execute these 3 star skill moves though, as his dribbling stats allow him to keep brilliantly close control and stay balanced.






  • Shooting
  • Weak foot- feels closer to 5 star than 4 star
  • Dribbling (balance astonished me and not clunky at all)
  • Hold up play
  • Physicality (never gets bodied and it stops him from getting knocked off the ball)
  • Passing
  • Goal celebration
  • Running style (he has an awesome animation for taking free kicks)
  • 3 star skills
  • Pace (but he is fast its just he's not adama or Mbappè

El Pistolero
By StinoMaasje, 24-05-2020

So, where do we start...


Last friday, I was searching for a new striker after I sold TOTS Benzema. I liked Benzema, but there was something wrong. Something didn't feel right when using him.


I went on the transfer market and started searching for a striker between 1 to 1.5 mil. I came across players like PIM Stoichkov, but since I had De Jong in my squad I chose TOTS Suarez.

I went straight into the weekend league, throwing Suarez in the deep straiht away.


In game, Suarez looks like your average clunky target man. But playing him says something else. I would describe TOTS Suarez as the perfect mix between strength, agility and finishing. Despite his body type he feels very agile and he can turn pretty quick (not Messi-esque but still quick). His finishing, ab-so-lute-ly deadly. This man bagged 46 goals in 30 champs games. Assisting 9 as well. His positioning is something that stood out to me. He makes different types of runs than your average striker. More intelligent or something. This led to numerous goals I would not have scored with other strikers.


Some other pro's mentioned briefly:

  • His agression makes him usefull chasing down defenders, intercepts a ball every now and then.
  • Scored a few headers with him, which is special because I barely score these chances normally.
  • Actually has some nice passing stats.


The only con for me was the 3 star skill moves. I'm not much of a skiller, but a berbaspin or heel-to-heel flick comes in handy every now and then.


I'm selling him after this weekend, but that is due to the fact that I like using different players every weekend. But it was definately a pleasure having this guy up top!

  • Strength in combination with agility
  • Finishing
  • Game face and tattoos
  • 3 star skills
  • Doesn't actually bite defenders

Luis the Goat
By luix05, 19-05-2020

I packed this guy untradebal from my Rivals Rewards out of a 35K Pack. I immediately put him in my team and played Weekendleague with him. He is one of the reason why I reached Gold 2, normally I reach Gold 3 (I´m not the best player). I played him in a 4-2-2-2 as right striker next to Butragueno. With engine, I wanted to push his agility and balance. In 43 matches he has 52 goals and more than 15 assists. I was really happy that I packed him, because he fits perfectly in my team (take a look at the link).

-Shooting (especially finishing)


-Weak foot feels like 5*


-nearly everything

-3* skills


-doesn`t feel very agile
