Hey guys,
Is Rui Costa SBC worth doing it? I'm thinking to link Ronaldo with him, but I didn't find anything about him here on forum.

Thank you in advance!

    There’s lots on the forum about him. Some people can’t get along with him some people say he’s better than del piero. He’s my only icon because he’s so cheap. I like him a lot. I’ve used him cam and cm. I find he’s way better at cam. I’d recommend him but I’m not an elite player so don’t take my word for it

    I'm not an elite either. Usually get Silver 1, playing more for fun.Thanks a lot for your reply!

    I just did him, for the exact reason of linking CR7. I like him, but honestly I regret locking up the coins, as I now have new ideas for my team that wouldn't include him but I feel obligated to find ways to use him. In short, I think he's very good, but in the future I am going to be more hesitant about doing SBCs in general, as you never know when you might change your mind about your team in the future.

    Opinion seems divided, personally I really like him, I play as a CAM.

    If you plan on getting some higher icons down the line then he's almost risk free.
  • His finishing is killing me all the time. I am using him on CAM with 4-1-2-1-2(2) but he comes RCM a lot. His strenght, dribbling, passing, stamina is great but when it comes to the finishing inside of the box he is so inconsistent.

    Great passing and dribbling, incredibly inconsistent finishing. He's a mid tier player and worth getting if you plan to use him in the short to mid term, then trade in later for a higher tier icon but I wouldn't be building a team around him.

    Not worth it imo. To advance to the upper echelons of wl you need players to finish their chances on a consistent basis. Rui costa finishing is 50/50 sometimes he is on fire sometimes he cant hit a barn door.

    Your bettet off savin your coins and buying if hazard or if dybala for the same price. If your using laliga you can easily purchase if griezman who is a goal scoring machine at the cam position.

    Great all around player at cam or cm and a killer link in the center of the pitch for hybrid squads whichever way you split it. He’s just been a very solid role player for me but being versatile player, as an icon, he opens up chemistry for picking and choosing your other favorite players.

    Use finesse I almost only use it with him. Still loves the posts but more consistent than other shots. Especially outside the 18 he loves the screamers

    I have him, played over 130 games with him. Much prefer him at CAM to CM, and I think he’s great! Started off great, went through a poor patch and I regretted him for about 20 games... then I was back to thinking he’s fantastic and I still think that

    Over 600 games with him, love his passing and the runs he is making and i always defended his shooting cause he was quite consistent at finishing for me but now he is starting to ❤️❤️❤️❤️ me off. Hard link to CR7 when i get him is the only thing thats making me want to keep him.

    Also, this is the one of the most frequently asked questions on this forum. Maybe search a bit next time. ;)

    This

    But

    His finishing use to really annoy me would pass him through he’d go sprinting through the middle and just would miss stupid chances.

    Traded him into Henry SBC, haven’t missed him.

    Another prime SBC is best use
    He's not bad but his 75 finishing will annoy you.

    Thank you all for your responses!
    I decided to go with squad A, instead of B. Quite the same amount of coins.

    i have used him for 200 games. im just a gold 1/2 player. he is better than most cams in game but his work rates and his finishing (sometimes) can annoy you a lot. he is good but not your elite cam. i myself am contemplating whether to swap him for any other icon

    Just change Neuer for Fahrman and you can save a few more coins.
    Actually i like Deco more, i have Deco, Hagi and Rui Costa, i play him and Deco as MC, he's good but not extraordinary.

    He's good but not great. I did Overmars first and he definitely feels like a prime icon should. Rui is value for money and will probably be traded in eventually. For now I'm very happy to just use him.

    Bale CAM, WBY LST, CR7 RST imo. WBY's passing isn't good enough for CAM and putting WBY LST/CR7 RST will give you more low driven opportunities across goal.
