EA over the last year or so do seem to be getting better with regards to Icon stats, with most of the new batch not being too bad and generally giving a representation of the player they are supposed to be of.
However, some of the older cards seem to have been neglected, even on their new moments cards. As such, which icons do you feel have been butchered and how could they be improved?
For me, one of their biggest culprits of this is Baresi, across all 4 cards.
On his 94 card (moments), he has:
68 Acceleration, 78 Sprint Speed. However, he was very fast covering ground in reality, with excellent acceleration. I think a much higher acceleration is easily warranted, with his overall pace being around 80-82. His lower cards to be adjusted accordingly.
59 Dribbling. This really brings his dribbling stat down (to 75) and is not very justified. He was superb at bringing the ball out from the back with great technique into the midfield. I would increase this to around 75.
The rest of his stats are broadly accurate.
Another example of this would be Nesta across all 4 cards.
76 Acceleration, 73 Sprint Speed. He was known throughout his career for exception pace where required, this should easily be a bit higher. 82 Acceleration & Spring Speed would be "fair."
40 Agility, 54 Balance. These two are just complete nonsense, why kill a card in this way? He was easily one exceptional agile and a fantastic one on one defender. I would put him slightly lower than Maldini in this area, with around 65 Agility & 69 Balance.
Who else needs some love from EA?
I appreciate that not all icons are made equal, but Nesta (in his finest period) shouldn't be worse than most gold cards. Crazy.
