So where should I start..
After my Courtois Review with amazing 96 dislikes, I decided to make a new, better review to a better player, because every review with less than 4* gets a shitstorm from toxic 14 years old kids where do not want to admit.
I was so happy and pulled Ben Yedder TOTS out of an Ligue A *PREMIUM* Upgrade Pack and wanted to try it out myself after I saw the 1* review..
I played 5 wl games with him in 4222 at right striker next to Flashback Coutinho and after 30 minutes it was 3-0.. Ben Yedder Hattrick, 2 finesse shots outside the penalty area and a good shot in the short corner.
He is like Coutinho, just 5 times better with 5* WF but only 4* Skills.
Lets move to the Pros and Cons.
With Hawk he has 99 Accerlation and 97 Sprint Speed but feels like 150
He easily overruns the opposing central defenders with the same pace but thats normal with Ben fckin Yedder who knows this legend.
His finesse shots are like when you‘ve had to go to the bathroom for ages and then finally can get started.. just crazy.
99/100 go in.
The man has the hardest and firmest shot there is.. stay on the shot button for a moment, aim at the short post and ben yedder chases the ball into the net like there is no tommorow..
Short and long passes usually always arrive, what more can you say about it?
Im not really the king of dribbling, but the moves I do have worked out very well.
You might think that it is not strong and easy to seperate from the ball, but it is not.
Maybe he‘s already oiled himself because he‘s just slipping through the defenders.
But if a Tapsoba really grabs it, even a Ben Yedder has to break off the attack.
- 5 STAR WEAK FOOT
Do not notice any difference between the feet
With High/High he fits perfect in my gameplay
He can play a full 90 minutes, but if you play fast football unlike me, you‘d better take him out after 80 minutes.
Still feels like 89+ stamina and not 83.
- 4* SKILLS
Maybe a problem for one or the other, but for me and Gold 1 it’s still enough.
- LOST MY VOICE AFTER I PACKED HIM
I packed his TOTS in FIFA 19 where our love story began.. played his overpowered POTM last year and today, May 31, 2021, this legend finally returns to my club <3
I packed this guy a while pack during Ligue 1 team of the season from my 84x20 at the time of packing him I wasn't actively playing the game. But when the new euro promotion started I came back to the game and found out how ridiculous this card is. Admittedly this card is nowhere near as overpowered as he was last Fifa but it is pretty similar. While using this card I was trying to think of a card to compare it to but he is completely out of this world. This Fifa I have tried to stay away from non-meta cards but as I packed this guy untradeable I was too tempted to try him out. I tried him in a few formations but I would definitely recommend using him in a formation that requires 2 strikers as he does provide the pace and dribbling ability to go out wide the formation I would recommend the most is the 4-3-1-2. In conclusion I would highly recommend people to try this card if they have the coins to afford him and I know people may shy away as people do see him as a meta card but just give him a go.
- Pace is phenomenal
- He has probably got the best dribbling i've used this Fifa
- 5* weak foot talks for itself
- Workrates are perfect for the way he plays
- Stamina not a real problem as I do tend to sub off my strikers most games
- The fact he is untradeable
I hate this guy but i got him in my red picks today. Where do I start. This guy has it all and when i say that i mean everything. He finishes everything as long as someone isnt in front of him and will clearly block his shot. His dribbling makes me angry when i use him because he turns stupidly fast. Like faster than a fat guy after he smells food. All in all this guy is something special and if you have the coins GET HIM you will not regret it.
PTSD and his height can be annoying at times since he has such good jumping and heading but is too short to win headers
Stamina can also be a problem at times
I opened my RANK 1 DIV RIVALS PACK TODAY, I see blue, I expect its going to be a troll, I see the french flag pop up, I see ST, then I see Monaco as I stand there wide eyed with a TOTS Ben Yedder standing in front of me. I am ecstatic to have pulled such a big card and instantly put him into my lineup linking him with TOTS Matuidi and IF Dembele in an in game 3-5-2 formation as ST. I start him in my squad in a DIV 2 game and instantly pass to him to see how well he feels on the ball, he feels okay, nothing special, I then attempt dribbling with him, again its fine, but nothing special. After a few minutes of play, Ben Yedder plays a beautiful cross to my Ansu Fati and he easily slots it home. Towards the end of the game, we are winning comfortably and we manage to find Ben Yedder on a 1on1 with a through ball, I trigger the finesse, with 1 1/2 bar of power and he manages to sky it, almost as if his weak foot was inexistent. After a few games with him, I managed to score 0 goals despite scoring 5+ with my team each game, however his passes were always near perfect and he barely ever missed one.
Pace - Very Fast, Loses to the odd Bamba/Walker/James
Passing - Inch perfect passing, beautiful playmaking and surprises you with the goal scoring opportunities he creates
Dribbling - His high composure, stamina, dribbling, balance, and height make for a very good dribbler, works excellently as a CAM as he can hold the ball effectively and make amazing passes
Shooting - For having such amazing Stats, Ben Yedder did not score once in 5 games and missed a few crucial chances, his shots would often hit post or go wide despite low power
Weak Foot - Ben Yedder's 5 star weak foot seems virtually non existent, he hasn't hit one good shot with his weaker foot and always manages to do the worst animations in shooting positions
Strength - Ben Yedder is a very weak forward in general, in 1on1s vs strong defenders he is almost always shrugged off and easily disposed of.
Don't know how to start, i used im in 5-3-2 (Second Striker) and 4-4-2 (St), i dont know its me or him but he was so bad.
For myself im Top200 Player on PC, made it to Top200 at Serie A Tots on bad WL i reach Elite 2-3, on pc u will be always Top200 if u reach Elite 1.
Can't explain why it didn't work out but my team overall performed so bad with Ben Yedder and Bamba in the Squad, i spent 2.330k and it felt like a scam.
I played Suarez for Ben Yedder and Carrasco for Bamba before and they peformed much much better than the two Ligue 1 TOTS...
This really hurts.. i love Ben Yedder.. always played him in the Past FIFA.. but this Year this TOTS Version does not work for me.
You should really consider to spare your Coins but in May-July in FIFA it doesn't really matter...
btw i tested Hawk and Engine on him...
feels like Workrates not working
feels like nothing working on this card for real except Finishing
oh 83 Stamina even when he works out for you, with this stamina you need take him out at 70min
