The latest Title Update for FIFA 20 is now available on PC & console, this includes the changes listed here.

Is the 88 Vieira worth the extra 500k over the 86 version?

As the title says... They both have almost identical defensive and physical in game stats. On their base card they also have the exact same shooting, passing, defending and physical.

So for those that have used both, is the 88 worth it?

    Don't know if it's the M/M or what, but the 86 didn't feel as dominant as the 88 and 91 (both of which are more like the Pat from previous years).

    Yeah just remembered the WR's, could be a game changer. Thanks for the input.

    I really enjoyed his 86 and couldn’t afford the 88, but the general consensus is that the 88 is far better.

    Doesn't really make much sense though does it? Considering their cards have 4 stats exactly the same. :joy:

    Like the others said.

    Pace, work rates and stamina.

    While having his 86 I can see how those three things would make his card munch better.

    Workrates on him is crucial and that alone is worth it. Also he win much more 50/50 tackles than the 86

    I have only used the 86 and prime, and there is a big difference in both... of you need a CDM the. Prime is best choice... however, for CM, 86 is much better, scores more often and is everywhere on the pitch

    If you can afford it then I’d totally get the 88.

    For me the difference is the W/R & the 88s ability to burst forward the 86 just can’t do that but the 86 is still a very good card

    15 was the year with ranges implemented as EA talked big prior to the game in solving coin selling but failed miserably. Every card got cheap and everybody here in the forums got rich beyond our wildest dream. :lol:

    and 91 is much better than 88? Thinking about selling 88 and buying or doing sbc for prime Vieira, but I dont know if there is a point for average player

    91 can score, 88 can't very well. For example a low driven from the 18 top of the 18 yard box with 88 is pretty unlikely to go in. With the 91 you can bang them. The rest of the stats are minimal in importance. I think the 88 might have more pace while the 91 has more defence / physical. The reality is 88 Vieira or 91 Vieira the strength boost is pretty meaningless and most people are running him with shadow the any sort of defensive boost is pretty marginal at best. The real difference is the shooting.

    So if you shoot with your CDMs at the rate most people shoot with their CB's your probably not getting great value. If you shoot with your CDMs with any sort of frequency you'll score more with the 91.

    I've used all 3 Vieira pretty extensively. The 86 slows down late in games due to stamina when you most need him to shut it down. Addtionally his work rates mean he hunts the ball less when your not controlling him.

    I've got the 86 as a CDM and he's ace. But I'm now tempted to sell (1.15m ish) and just get a Gold IF or NIF CDM. I'm not sure any CDM is worth over 1m coins considering players like Bakayoko do a very good job for 5k max.
