    I remember that poll in early October and people calling us all sorts of things, because we voted for "average" or "ok, but there are better options" :joy:

    A lot of people seem to dislike him lol. I agree he doesn't play like he did in real life, but I still love the card. Maybe it just suits certain play styles

    tfw EA actually nailed his prime

    He was a heavyset guy, who was lazy and had a bum knee. Bang on the money.

    Use the 90, he played amazing for me, and people aren't so inclined to go mental as you only have the lowest rated version :D

    I had him alongside TOTS Werner for a bit, and the pair of them were like a wrecking ball.

    Proper eSport version card. The slower the gameplay and the less he has to move the better he becomes.

    Nope his Prime is supposed to at Barcelona moving onto Inter Milan/France 98 before his injuries..He could beat 4/5 defenders with absolute ease after dropping deep and collecting.. His prime and 94 both play like him around 05/6 during his last couple of years at Madrid if anything. :D

    Before his injuries he's was the most explosive player I've ever seen with insane dribbling. In 06 he was out of shape, lost his acceleration, but still finished everything

    94 Ronaldo seems pretty bang on from using him.


    The 96 is probably too similar tho.

    I think he could be slightly better represented than this card, but the card is still great for me. TOTY/TOTS CR7 is the only ST that is more dominant for me.

    He is unreal, still my main striker. I think only 99 cr7 may be better at striker, haven't used him though. Only used the 96 CR7 and liked R9 more

    M/M workrate is so stupid, for him and Henry. neither were lazy in attack and routinely ran behind defense or use their movement to drag defenders.

    I enjoy my R96 but his pace is a lie 97 pfft Prime Gullit seems as quick

    I only used the 90, but he seemed good enough, weak, since it's the 90, I guess. but opponents already use him to full strenght, runs, goals etc... Brazilians make him look like the real Ronaldo, I think he's good enough...

    I agree R9 is one of the least fun, but most effective ICONs. His shooting is just a cheat code. Like Crespo in FUT14.

    I actually made the mistake of bumping Henry to CAM for him for almost two hundred games before realizing how insane it was playing this fat lunk ahead of the Goat!

    Henry looks great tbh. seems like a CR7 with worse work-rates. @James Libby

    Prime R9 is the best striker I have ever used. I bought Tots CR7 as I do every year, but he felt so bad compared to R9 so I sold him. I'm still looking for my 2nd striker, Tots Neymar played as good as him, but after some games (50 or something like that) he too became bad and sold.

    If you want fun, learn to rainbow flick and volley, slow dribble and bang shots from outside the box. That’s what’s worked for me.

    Yes, he definitely does not feel like the 97 pace the card suggests, but using r9 to straight line sprint isn’t the way to use him.

    He took me a little while to get used to, and he will have a few of those games where nothing seems to happen, but then he’ll have a game where he will feel fast, beat 3 defenders and bang 4/5 goals in if he gets a sniff of goal, that’s if the oppo hasn’t rage quit at that point. When he’s hot, he’s unstoppable and the best player in the game imo.

    Every player will experience ‘that’ feeling and where the gameplay feels off, simple passes not reaching your teammate, but hey ho that’s Fifa.

    He’s been prolific for me, and in wl I usually end up at about a 50/50 ratio maybe slightly better, so to have this kind of record with a player is incredible for me. I also recently got fof villa who has 96 goals in 100 games, and also got prime crespo about 50-60 games after r9, who was also 1 gpg but has dropped off since using him at cam, so even with other goal scorers in the team to stay that positive over a long period is testament to his ability imo.

    Also, enjoy this beauty. 96 volleys is no lie.
