Prime Rui SBC

Alright lads,

Is it worth getting the Prime Rui Costa? How does he play? FUT Champs worthy?

I know I could just do the loan version but seems a waste of coins (although it would be a bigger waste if I did the actual SBC and didn’t like!)

Thoughts much appreciated!

    He's only good to put into ADP

    He was amazing for me for the first 50 games, then he felt sluggish and went missing (could just be me). Every now and then he will pop up and do something magical but he is now average for me. Will trade him in for ADP when I get the cash.

    He is a machine @ rcm .Apply Hawk on him and stay forward,get into the box instructions.

    He has 48 goals and 16 assists in 67 games for me,all online.

    Also he helps to defend with his phys.abilities and its very hard to get the ball from him with those phys./dribbling stats combo.

    Very inconsistent at shooting, didn’t seem to live to his pace or passing stats either tbh
  • He's really good for me, cost me 250K in total (decent return from packs). Well worth it.

    I am wondering this as well. Want some icons in my team, because they have got something normal players from the same rating don't have.

    Did his loan and used him in the WL over a couple weeks. I thought he was a good CM. Finishing I found quite poor. I will likely do his card, but just because it will be cheaper to do his SBC than buying a legend for someone else.

    Gets a lot of criticism but I have found him excellent. I also play him RCM as he creates so much from that position. Have also scored a good few long rangers from him.

    90 rated CAM with 75 finishing is of no use to me

    He's not an in the box kind of player but he can hit bangers for days. I did him to get ADP. I ended up keeping him he was so good. Plays RCM for me

    His record for me is 93 games, 66 goals and 27 assists. Nearly all of that in weekend league. Sniper on him boosts him where he needs it, I've loved him.

    Rui Costa is amazing for me. I use him as CAM or RCM in 4-3-3. I don't get why people dislike him. He's strong, good runs, passing and he's almost at 200 goals and 200 assists for me, in not even 250 games. And yes I do play WL with him everytime.

    love him. As a RCM he seems to get better with time. As much as I love my 87 Del P, I just cant put Rui in the Del P SBC

    I like him he's sort of between the elites and good players not quite top level but better then most no regrets and I don't plan on putting him in a SBC unless I fancy a change.
  • He’s solid. Good CM to link play and for long shots. He’s physical and has good stamina too. Only knock is his finishing is way worse than I expected

    i need my cam to be able to score bangers and be strong. and he does that better than most.

    Also 4* is a bonus.

    So cheap to do makes sense

    Undecided whether to do him with the intention of using him for the Petit sbc.

    On one hand - he would save me around 100k and packs along the way. On the other - I wouldn't mind actually using him.

    Getting him later. Will be RCM in a 41212(2). Maestro chem.

    I will eventually trade him in but only for Gullit, Vieira or Mathaus.
    Great card, now playing him rcm, with get forward and free roam in 4-3-2-1. Hagi plays lcm and I have either IF Talisca or IF Fernades in the middle, although Fernandes is probably gonna be who I settle with.
    Rui is superb :)

    He is very solid, but man am I bored to death of using him.

    Thinking about trading him in soon, but gonna hang tight until the next round of primes.
  • He's great for me while I wait for prices to come down or to eventually go in an SBC. Only cost me 300k cos of untradrables..

    I love him, decided against ADP Prime since i couldnt face trading him in :). Tried him with alot of different chemstyles and positions, not in CDM tho ;). Can say that the best i have had on him are Hunter and Shadow. With Shadow on the CM position he is really good
