It's great that EA gave us such a cheap End of an Era Pirlo, but his physical stats make absolutely no sense.

He is suppose to be gifted at holding the ball like Xavi and yet he is as agile as Akinfenwa from Fifa 14 when every player moved like a battleship. It's great you upped his pace but 53 stamina, is Pirlo on life support(70 at least, please)? And where did 81 strength come from? :D

FixPirlo EA, at the very least his stamina. I wouldn't even mind a nerf to his strength or pace if he could at least last the full 90.

    It's a shame that those brilliant players (Pirlo, Iniesta, Xabi Alonso, Kroos, Xavi, etc) were and are useless in this pace oriented game.

    Pirlo was never agile, but this shouldn't matter as much it does in FIFA.

    The card is already amazing and cheap, but a little bump in stamina would be welcome.

    Right, but he wasn't Akinfenwa agile either :D

    A little bit more stamina and he'd be useable for a full match.

    Id rather they kept the stamina the same. So everyone doesn't have a borderline TOTY player for 30k tyvm.

    Seeing as you can get the icon Bakayoko for 2k, I don't see how Pirlo would be a problem by comparison.
  • The problem is that EA just uses his base card as source and up their stats. His base has 38 stamina.

    I remember in previous FIFAs certain stats didn't get upgraded on IFs like sliding tackle so if their base card had bad stats, they stayed bad.

    So yeah... +15 stamina is actually not that bad. If he had, say, 60 start with, 75 would've been fine.

    When you click analogue and go over to stats, it says 99 penaltys

    But when in player roles changing him to take pens it says hes 84.

    Don’t think his agility is an issue, definitely doesn’t feel bad and stamina hasn’t been an issue for me either. Plays and feels incredible in game, so much fun to use, his passes are insane

    If you complain about his stamina then you probably have no clue how to use him and should better not do him at all. Seems like the noobs in here want to use him Bakayoko style and chase back likes ret*rd. He has L/L work rates ffs, it’s a fun card not meant to be competitive. There are other modes to have fun except WL where all the try hards use their generic United triangle/Bayern triangle, Bale, CR7 Rest icons Team. People who use him for SBC should be ashamed because that’s the nail in the coffin for a real football lover. You have lost the rest of your dignity and succumbed to EA‘s view of football, congrats.

    Calm down? This isn’t even angry and offending, it’s an exaggerated tongue in cheek reflection of the community :wink:

    To be honest though, I'm loving using him at CDM with Danilo Pereira as the other one.
    Getting those passes to Balo and Insigne just perfectly

    Are you okay my dude?

    I only play Squad Battles so he will be next to useless for me at CM or CDM. Not my fault EA gives every player 99 sprint speed on squad battles with 100% pass accuracy and limitless stamina, then they expect me to use low stamina players on this game mode? :D

    He used to have 2 Lungs though

    He's actually pretty good IG and easily lasts 75/80 mins. He was never the type of player to run much IRL, let alone after the 80th minute, so this is an ok card.

    I put him in two games online in the second half. And he makes perfect runs and passes with perfection.

    You really believe that stats they put on them are the stats they programme onto these players? This is the biggest issue for me on this game. The not knowing.

    Fix him?

    You mean nerf him? Can’t imagine making him any better would be fair to be honest.
