does anyone have any idea on the impact of a 4* weak foot compared to a 5* weak foot? i read somewhere that when shooting on a 4* weak foot finishing and other shooting stats are decreased by 20% for example 80 finishing on a weak foot would be 64 finishing and apparently its 20% per star. does anyone know if this is true?

    If it's timed finesse, never seen much of a difference apart from it before slower.

    For some cards it's huge (e.g. Benzema) , for other cards it's minimal (e.g. Suarez).

    Suarez's 4* feels just a tad less effective than, say, Dembele's 5*.

    But it's a long gap between his and Neymar's.

    I am pretty sure it's a combination between foot skill and shooting stats.

    You guys think Rashford 4* weak foot will be noticeably worse than richarlison 5* weak foot. Currently using OTW richarlison as striker but as a united fan im looking to complete futmas Rashford and he looks better than richarlison at everything except for physical and 1 less star weak foot

    I've not tried Rashford FUTMAS but ST Richarlison is insane.

    I use normal Rashford he seems good to me but I'm usually cutting inside and right foot finish.

    He surprised me with how good he was it seems to score a lot of goals for me as striker in a 4231 or ls in a 41212

    Currently have 3 5* weak foots in the team and it is a big help being able to shoot either foot no worries. From what I’ve seen 4* should be fine as well though

    I’ll need him to cut in and finish in a 41212 but in a 4231 he needs to hit with his left and I think/hope 4* weak foot can hold up

    You don’t need to think for a split second which foot. My game is based on fast & distance shooting. For me it is must have requirement. Thats why I always prefer players like KDB, Eriksen, ADP, Butre, Gullit, Neymar etc

    U would think that’s the case but somehow on this game it’s just another useless stat added to players
    When any player on any foot can curl them into top bag by double tapping a button

    couldn’t be further from the truth, if one of the stats really matters and makes game changing difference it is 5* wf

    Yeah I think 4* might be fine but in my head I might try get on to the strong foot when hitting on a 5* weak foot would be much more beneficial

    89 Nedved has 5 star weak foot and it feels like 10 stars. His strong foot is worse

    Is this because people defend his right foot more tighter or do you just score more with the left foot

    funnily enough I built a cheap 5* wf team over the weekend & it plays really nice
    need to see if I can upgrade it
    nice to tun / shoot either way
    there is something in it
    any thoughts?

    4* is minimal for attackers. 5 star basically means no difference?

    Not sure it affects anything else other than shooting. Passing feels the same as long as you position your player properly.

    I dont know, I`ll persevere a little more because its nice to confuse your opponent
    atm I`m trying more players without spending too much
    but might get KDB & Eriksen in the same team ?

    Does it really matter though? Most players just use their strong foot regardless

    Yeah this can be annoying amount of times I’ve tried taking a weak foot finesse and they go outside boot shot. That being said they do go in sometimes

    Probably depends on the type of finish.

    Finesse and driven are pretty awful on even a 4* weak foot if you aren't careful.

    But a normal shot? 4* pretty accurate.

    Yes. I dont know where, but a few years ago an EA-employee explained this.

    IF ST Richarlison has 5* weak foot and bangs them in for fun. Could afford any forward but I can’t get rid of him!

    It used to be that that each star was 20% of the strong foot stat but that was years ago, not sure if its still the same.

    I use IF Nakajima with a 4star WF but it just feels as good as his strong foot. Absolutely ruthless.
