TOTY Cancelo owners:

Specifically, this is for TOTY Cancelo owners who use him in midfield with a shooting chem boost.

I quite like this card, but I cannot possibly believe his 5* WF, left-footed shooting is as good as the stats with Gladiator chem style would have you believe.

I have no idea whether it's the WF or the chemstyle, but no way is it accurate. Something is simply not right with the coding with one of those.

Having said that, IIRC, EA has still never confirmed that 5* WF necessarily means same as strong foot, have they?

    His shooting is fine by me left and right foot, 5* WF is the same as strong foot

    I have to agree he doesn’t finish the same as a natural striker he’s not programmed that way remember but as a box to box or cdm he’s phenomenal

    It's the chemistry style mate. There's no way a boosted stat with a chemistry style does the same job as if it were already on the card.

    But in a way, it's objectively not, since the player still favors dribbling with their strong foot, so shots will not always set up the same on either side.

    Again, I don't believe EA has ever confirmed that, correct me if I'm wrong though.

    For me he finishes almost every reasonable chance he gets+ a lot of long shots from attacking CM. i use gladiator. Best cm so far this year in the price range or anywhere near

    I've strongly preferred 5 * WF for years, it does the same job, exactly the same, the only issue is sometimes when the player has outside the foot shot trait, it means sometimes they favour thier strong foot when they could/should shoot on the WF.

    I've noticed this with a few cards tbh

    Tinfoil hat theory but I think that cards that get a WF boost in a special still keep the same WF as the base, even if it says boosted in the stats

    Griezmann, Cancelo, Ozil and more that I've used with a boosted WF all shoot or pass on it like its the base/weaker version

    4* on Cancelo is fine overall but it is not a 5* WF, I have him next to De Bruyne and De Brunye's WF is so much better because its 5* by default

    He was unstoppable first week. Now seems like his speed and shooting have been nerfed honestly. I was finessing from all over the field now can’t put it in an empty net w/him

    I'd have to disagree on this one. I use him as LM in a 352 and pops In those outside of thr box finesse shots for me about 60% of the time I try them (I don't spam them 😂)

    Feels like a 5star WF to me, using the def and shooting chem card on 7 chem

    I wouldn't call it "tinfoil hat" considering that's extremely similar to what happened with Chemgate.

    I mean, if you're using engine, at best he has 81 finishing, hard for me to believe he's "finishing almost every reasonable chance." Obviously this is the problem, it's so subjective.

    This!

    EA definitely live tune their cards. He used to be able to finesse on either foot, usually his weak one for me playing him on the right…now they all go over the bar regardless of the power I give it. Classic EA.
