Is it just me that isn't getting along with the TOTY defenders?

Got TOTY Varane atm and imo you can feel a slight difference but not much to the NIF. Starting to wonder if it's just better to go with Icon CB's instead.

    I'm getting the feeling that he might be the only one you can probably notice a difference with.

    TOTY Ramos is the best defender in the game. Same with Marcelo, best LB I've used.

    Might just be Varane then, maybe I chose the wrong TOTY defender to use haha.

    Toty KDB was a massive disappointment to me, couldn't tell the difference between it and his nif... one could be forgiven for thinking we may be getting conned? 😂😂

    I like Varane TOTY but I never used the NIF.

    The only thing that TOTY players have is that they feel too quick for me, if that makes sense. I needed to get used to TOTY Varane.
  • had Varane for a few games, waste of coins.. sold at the peak of post-promo at 1.850. dropped to 1.650's pretty fast.

    potm vvd-prime baresi now.. way more satisfying, considering together they cost me half that

    Ahhh i had to try him to get the idea out my head that he would solve all my defensive issues.

    Going for SBC Baresi now to fill his gap and going to play Varane CDM i think!

    Found Varane very average. Blanc and Desailly are better.

    Loving him at CDM, paired with Kante IF. Assists for days.

    Varane I found is just really fast...other than that not really special. Hes still great, but yeah the NIF is also great. Got him untradeable so works for me.
    Marcelo on the other hand huge difference between NIF and toty!
    Havent tries the others...

    Yeah I have a feeling the biggest differences will be on Marcelo and maybe Van Dijk.

    Felt the same for me. Vvd is much better although hes probably not much different to his potm 89 rated version.

    I played a few Games With Toty varane and he was awesome. Only dr though, weekend leauge will tell the truth
  • I have toty Varane paired with prime Des & they are working well together for me. Well I am just an avaerage div3-4 player so it works for me.

    Only one you can really notice is Ramos but still his NIF already is really good.

    Last year I perfected crossing with my LB (as I prefer attacking from the left) and was using Prime Carlos, it was so much fun and assisted so many goals.
    With Marcelo that dominant attacking is back and to top it off I'm finding myself going through defenders and getting him in the box more and more thanks to his insane dribbling.
    But through all of that he is yet to be a defensive liability for me, always seems to track back right in time. Would definitely recommend him if you havent tried yet

    VVD has been amazing for me. Wins every duel, very aggressive and can keep up with a lot of fast players like Salah

    He's unreal as a nif though, so can only imagine how his TOTY would be, he's the one player that's not United (or an icon) that i'd be tempted to put in my team just because he's that good, between him & Ibra heading corners would be to easy.

    I'm selling varane. I hardly ever concede because of my CBs cos everyone just does timed finesse anyway. Could have bronze CBs and it wouldn't change anything

    Im not saying he was bad, nif KDB has been my favorite player of this game and ive tried nearly all of them... his Toty doesn't seem any different to me aside from a bit faster in movement.

    Typical of TOTY players. Most never will live up to their stats. If they did they would be unstoppable nd anyone with enough to get all or most of them would have no need to continue looking for that perfect team.

    Yes. Agree with this, they are so agile as well.

    When i used the loan toty neymar i was like wow this card is fast.
