Did EA drop the ball with the Shapeshifters promo?

Changing the strong foot of a player or making defenders ST does not sit right with me. Not interested in the least by these cards.

But if you go down that route why not do it properly…

6”4 Messi with horrible dribbling but 99 standing tackle
5”5 Ibrahimovic with extremely low strength and shooting but 99 agility and pace
Alisson as ST
Ronald McDonald as LW

    Well that would require a code change at ea to release players with adjusted height weight etc….as ea can’t even put the right players in packs I can imagine them releasing a 9”4 tall messi by mistake 😅

    Agree with some points. Just hate seeing players like Davies at ST. It is just ridiculous at this point, with Promos that we can’t even enjoy.

    I don't really care about the position changes, as everyone has been using fullbacks in midfield etc all year long.

    But changing a players strong foot is just stupid imo. Nothing like going on a mazy run with Hazard, reminiscent of some of his Chelsea goals..... but oh wait he can't finish the chance as he's now left footed :D

    The strong foot is the only thing that should never be changed, it's stupid imo!

    He’s one of the least weird position changes as he plays in attack for Canada.

    I full get the RB/LB's to CB's and CDM's to defenders etc.. but it doesn't sit right with me as well having CB's playing ST better than some actual ST cards do..

    ShapeShifters is ridiculous Fortnite Style gaming. What they should do is move players to positions they have actually played in games and not change their Weak Foot etc ... make it more realistic but EA don't care about reality. Atal every year is a superstar according to them... gameplay is completely fake... etc etc etc
