Not even fair 2
By Rizzledadon, 31-12-2021

I only had 12 winter wildcard tokens, so no 10x85+ pack for me. I thought of cashing in Daka but then I thought "fuck it", let's go for the ultimate pack. And well, triangle haircut Ronaldo.. I love this guy, I remember that we were in Amsterdam on a field trip for school during the 2002 world cup finals. As soon as Brazil won a scooter was blazing through the city, must have gone 90 km/h with someone standing on the back holding up a Brazilian flag. 

Dropped him in my Serie A squad, he replaced rulebreakers Arnautovic and has just been banging goals in left, right and center.

Pace, this guy has it, blistering fast. Turn around, accelerate and you're past the defender. Do the quick ball roll (hold RS down) and let go, you're past the defender. When you have the ball in defence, you can send him deep and high through pass the ball with one of the CB's and you'll usually end up in a one-on-one with the goalie.

I can't mention pace without talking about his dribbling. To add, he has the engine chemistry style but the executing speed of his skills is beyond normal. The elastico or reverse elastico feel like cheating. Roulettes, la croqueta or just zig-zag moving all feel incredibly strong.

Strong? Yes, he is. When the skills fail and he bumps into a defender. He'll usually come out on top as well. In these situations it just feels as if the ball is always his. If he's not winning on pace, then it's on strength.

Now that you got past the defender, finishing... One word, phenomenal. Left foot, right foot, yes. Inside the box, yes. Normal shots, low driven, or finesse shots all find the target. But what if you can't get in the box? Well, his long shots isn't special but he has scored a couple of screamers for me. You just flick touch the ball, run up to the ball and fire.

His defending? Not bad I guess. He has bullied some centerbacks from the ball. His passing as well, he can do the one-two through passing with the CAMs. But his assists were considerably lower than that for Arnautovic. I'll admit tho, I'm forcing goals with Ronaldo that I wouldn't with Arnautovic. With engine he actually has a good passing stat, but it's just not his task and neither is defending.

He's the whole package deal, his finishing is lethal, pace is blistering, dribbling is butter smooth and strong to boot.

He's untradeable, I'd love to spend 8m on a fun team.

The best Attacker in FIFA 22

For this weekend league I decided to try out the most expensive card every FIFA. It goes without saying, however this card is VERY expensive and obviously that is always relevant. His dribbling and ball control stats are already very high but with the extra boost to his dribbling. It made skill moves feel very quick and definitely were usable in tight spaces inside the box which is very game breaking this yea...

R9 Makes This Game Actually Enjoyable

I've been very fortunate to use many different players this FIFA, I've had TOTY Ronaldo, TOTY Messi, TOTY Lewandowski, and Prime Eusebio. When I had enough coins for R9 I pulled the trigger and purchased him. I play on PS5 so there's that automatic DropBack and it's Park the Bus Simulator. Ronaldo has been an unbelievable card and is the best card I've used so far with Eusebio being the second best, The TOTY cards don't ev...

A mix of CR7 base and a God

Onestly he is just insane, makes the difference and is a game changer. I tried Pelè mid, Cruyff, Eusebio,Mbappè IF etc. and he is on a different level but the problem with him is that his performance strictly depends on the connection and the gameplay situation.If you play him in WL on evening/afternoon he literally is CR7 gold, nothing more. He turns like a truck and becomes really really hard to use,the on...
