Is it just me, or do all the red cards feel as though they are broken?

After using some of the red cards, I feel like they are broken, they feel poor. Talking to a couple guys in the top 100 that were lucky enough to pack red Ronaldo all have resorted to not playing with him because he feels terrible compared to his NIF, or even any of his IF counter parts. A lot of IF cards seem to play a lot better than their red card versions from my experience.

    I don't know. I use Bollasie as a super sub and he is very good. But never used his IF or NIF before so hard to tell. But wouldn't suprize me one bit if they are * :)

    I use IF Vardy and IF Laca as supersubs and I don't feel anything wrong.

    I feel like my red vardy is much better than nif. So im guessing they're the same as the IF

    My red Gio tore it up when I used him, and my red Lallana is doing great in my pack only team as well

    crazy... all my red cards or so underwhelming and incredibly inconsistent. it's crazy. my SIF red Ronaldo is terrible, i play much better with Remy than I do him, even some other guys that have that same red ronaldo said they've all quit using him because he's so bad, and they use his NIF instead and say he's so much better. SIF Gayle is amazing, but my red Gayle is so average. I've used both SIF Benteke and Red SIF Benteke, the non red card felt significantly better. My team actually started performing better overall when I took red cards completely out of my line up, including the bench.

    Call it placebo effect or whatever, but Red cards just feel so broken for me.

    question: Have you used IF Striker Ronaldo? and If not how can you compare? My Red SIF Immobile is awesome same as the SIF I was using before packing him.

    this has always been an issue with FUT. informs and special have never performed well. I remember a few fifas back, I had an inform costa who performed terrible for me. put his nif back in and he was scoring hattricks again.

    Must be. But I don't ever play any differently. I've never been the guy that forced the ball to a player or anything and I can just never get anything out of the red cards. Buy a NIF in, and I get far more out of them. My Remy was outperforming Ronaldo by a mile. Ronaldo missing absolutel sitters. Less than 2 bars of powers while one on one with the keeper and he's skying it over the net.

    Idk. Everyone praises his NIF. And all of his cards feel amazing in draft.

    You're right and I agree. But I have used both SIF Benteke and Red SIF Benteke. I've also used IF Defoe and his RED IF. and with both those played the IF played far better than the red cards.

    I believe they're just the normal versions, why don't they count as informs in SBC's? The look cool, but don't notice a difference over the NIF.

    What is your rank on WL usually? How bad are you to say SIF Ronaldo is bad? No card is broken, its all in your head. Many play like crap yet expect to win everygame 5-0.
    Well guess what i have used red cards, nif cards and IF cards. Ifs/reds are much better than their nifs. I have a red Kante and a red Mane and i notice they are much better. Everyone who says otherwise is just making excuses for sucking.
