The reality about PACE

Can someone explain or suggest why this is the case?

I bought mid Butragueno the other day and I’m playing him currently up top in a 41212(2) with POTM Aubameyang.

If anything, PEA has better pace on the stats. Yet when I put Butra away, he is literally gone. There is no catching him, not online or by the AI on Ultimate / Legendary. I have not seen anything like it on this game.

How is it he is so fast in comparison to other players with similar stats? Only thing I can think is because of his height difference, as though the low center of gravity somehow makes him faster in game.

    Could it be balance & agility?

    It could be! I’ve no idea tbh. I would’ve thought that sprint speed and acceleration would’ve been the only stat that matters, but it could well be a combination of stats / body shape etc.

    In conclusion, Icons play above their stats. Always have done. Not sure why, or how. But they do.

    Could also be down to chem styles, chemistry ratings (team and individual) and of course sliders :trollface:

    My smaller players feel a lot faster than my taller players, Nedved faster than Ibra, my figo is twice as fast as POTM Auba ever was for me

    Yea smaller players are always quicker, it's like the tall ones touch the ground less often so don't accelerate as quickly, it was the way they looked for sprinters until bolt came along

    Smaller players with high agility are much faster

    balance and agility the most important stat for attacing players. If i had a bronze team with 90 pace with 99 balance and 99 agility, i could put 5 past my opponent. Its the stat that affects if you can turn or basically move with your players. Engine OP

    Butra has higher stamina, acceleration, and aggression... depending on which butra.

    Same with ucl Kompany, players hardly get by him, not sure why but I’m guessing he has really big strides/steps.

    Dribbling ability also comes into play. The touches will be better timed to keep his pace going.
