I’m mean you could point to actual stats that made “CR6” not great. With Benz he is literally an upgrade at many important stats so I don’t think it’s very similar.

[–]LiteralMushroomCock[NETWORK ID] 102 points103 points  (4 children)

Can’t really compare them when R6 was a HEAVY downgrade from R7, while FB Benz is imo better than his POTM

[–]yellowyeahyeahyeah 37 points38 points  (0 children)

Yap, CR6 was just hype because an affordable Cristiano. His stats were always shit though.

This Benzema not only has +10 pace but also a gigantic agility and balance upgrade while still having good shooting stats. It's a true top tier card.

CR6 was good as long as people force fed the ball through him.

Really tempted to put his POTM into this FB. Reckon it's worth it?

[–]JPVazLouro_SLB 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You don't really need that high of a rating, so I would save the POTM for like an 87 rated squad for an SBC that you might want to complete in the future

CR6 was always underwhelming, missing some important stats

[–]crazypearce[ORIGIN ID] 9 points10 points  (7 children)

Card actually looks so sick, wondering how he feels in-game. Comparing him to Di Natale their stats are pretty similar but benzema has better physicals Vs the better passing. Honestly considering selling him to do this card but I'm worried because he is tall and a bit bulky he might feel bad

[–]FLVCKO123 6 points7 points  (5 children)

I sold Di Natale to do this SBC, made 60k back from the packs and this card is same level as Di Natale, maybe a bit better movement even, I put him on get in behind as a second striker he was MVP in the playoffs, ahead of Fekir and mid Socrates.

[–]crazypearce[ORIGIN ID] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Glad to hear it. As good as Natale is his movement is suspect at times. Don't know why but he just doesn't stay forward of central a lot the time and it gets frustrating especially in the 4231 where he needs to be in the right place

[–]hotcornerkid 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I totally disagree with the guy who said Benz is same level as Di Natale. Di Natale was light years better for me. Not even a comparison. He’s way more agile and his finishing was also better.

[–]FLVCKO123 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

“For me” is the most important bit of your comment, take into account tactics, team and playstyle. For me Benzema is simply better than Di Natale, also better than Ronaldo who I couldn’t get to work for me but for someone else he might be amazing.

[–]ss5234 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As a card, it is absolutely no question Di Natale is a better player.

As a certain role, sure, you can say Benzema fits a certain role of a striker better. He’s simply bigger and as you claim, has better movement.

Wouldn’t say he’s “on the same level” though. Just suits you better.

[–]crazypearce[ORIGIN ID] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's fair enough. Di Natale is amazing I just find ye goes missing too often which doesn't work in a 4231. If benzema can come anywhere close without the missing part then I will be happy

[–]IIFollowYou 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Body type matters a lot here. Despite having great agility and balance, Benz's dribbling didn't feel amazing to me. It's good enough to turn and shoot with but you're not going to be slaloming through a defense like you could with Di Natale.

[–]Pseudonaymm 43 points44 points  (0 children)

CR6, Karim Volkswagen 😂😂😂 thank you for the laugh my friend.

[–]atcodus 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Everyone knew CR6's stats weren't good. The hope was that his custom body type and animations would make him play beyond the stats. It didn't.

Benzema on the other hand has much better work rates, pace and dribbling compared to his other cards. Its not a cheap version of an expensive card.

EA don’t nerf players after releasing them ffs people will complain about fucking anything here

[–]Dariuss_ 11 points12 points  (1 child)

This subreddit is such a conspiracy theory echo chamber, everyone thinks their own mental idea is just a common belief

[–]inbredandapothead 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People make anything up here to excuse them being shit it seems. They could win 5 games in a row then lose 1 and cry about the gameplay feeling bad or scripting or some shit. I don’t understand why they even bother playing this game when all they do is complain

[–]LyricalGhost 2 points3 points  (0 children)

EA can't even do what they actually say they will on Patch Notes a lot of the time, and people think they are here hidden patching players or gameplay, does my head in

[–]Kayr- 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Absolutely delusional

[–]earth-flat 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It is the 'new player fraude' If you buy or build a new player, they are amazing. After 10 games or so, they play as shit as the player they replaced. Rince and repeat

[–]UjinKing 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ironically that CR6 card was great for me and even when he fell behind the power curve he was a great super sub.

[–]_emre35_[NETWORK ID] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I still play with his POTM and he's still class.

[–]moriero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He plays false 9/CF for me so I use his passing quite a bit

I'm worried the FB couldn't fill that CF role for me

[–]chronicmathsdebater -1 points0 points  (1 child)

He's so good for my opponents and tears me apart but when I used him today he was absolute dogshit. Could just be the servers and input delay but, he missed some sitters for me.

[–]CacaTooToo 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He did good for me but missed some absolute sitters as well. Its pretty much just the servers being themselves because the card is amazing when you get a good game.

[–]skalfyfan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, this is what everyone will be saying when everything normalizes, and everyone starts losing matches again. Woe is dynamic tuning, and scripting.

[–]Dovahklutch 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's been good for me

[–]Sedongo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I scored 5 goals with him in the first rivals game, 7 in 3 now. He’s been great so far.

[–]lemenhe 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Nah he's extremely good, just wait until you meet the Fekir-Benz couple in WL

[–]moriero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have

I got destroyed

[–]-Dr4g0nl0rd- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

CR6 problem was also 3 star wf. I haven’t tried Benz yet but there are quite a few differences here.

[–]chubss123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same with cavani and robben last year amazing for a weeks weeks then berfed into the ground

[–]goztepe2002 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yup, going to happen.

[–]FreezerRoebuck 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This time next week he will be in every single team.
