Toty KDB appreciation thread

He's got amazing stats so he's supposed to me a game-changer....well he really is. Much more than Toty Kantè in my opinion. He's really fast, strong, good defender, great shooting and his passing is really something else. So quick to pass the ball around, makes everything so easy. He's great at cam but even better at RCM. He's expensive but I like him more than icons like Vieira, Petit or Blanc at CM.

  • What about in a 4231? Do you think he would be good behind the striker?

    I only have his nif and he is just amazing so I can’t imagine what that blue card would play like.

    I packed his nif in the first week of fifa18 and used him for a month at CAM, so I know him pretty well....the blue card is really something else.

    I think he would be amazing at central cam in 4231. I'm using him at RCM in 41212(2) and because of the RCM/CAM glitch, he often steps in the CAM position, he can finish anything and his passing is really incredible.

    I packed NIF KDB in early November, used him at CAM, then had to move him to RCM when I bought IF Hazard. Upgraded to TOTY KDB on saturday and while I'd like to eventually get him back at CAM, he's still RCM for me and I really notice the upgrade. 4 minutes into his first game he was dribbling from the half way line towards the box, and the opponent was just backing off and off, so tried a shot from about 30 yards and it flew in the top corner.

    It's kind of weird as I know it's a big stat boost, but he seems to make better runs than the NIF card. He always seems to be available when I'm in attack.

    I was saying in another thread how good he’ll be if he gets the 5* WF upgrade which looks likely.

    Probably up there with Gullit as one of the best mids in the game if he gets that.

    Nah man his defending is nowhere Gullit's. KDB does look good but to me the 90 Gullit is a league above

    Hang, the TOTY card would get the weak foot upgrade if it happens? I did not know that.

    It's stupid. He is the best CAM no question. Why play him as CM? There are lots of choices like Kante or Gullit or even Vieira, why waste KDB there?

    I pulled him yesterday, tried some match, maybe I don't know how to use him yet, don't even think he is better than pirlo except for stamina

    Because I play false nine and I need attacking minded cm'S(can't afford gullit and viera and Kante are both defensive minded). And no I'm not playing de bruyne at cf. Messi is there and he has 420 goals in 440 games with 200 assists.

    I’ve been building teams around KDB for years as I just love the way he plays in the game. Had the 91 blue card I played a few hundred games with and he’s really the only POTY card I had to have. During the last week I packed a regular CR7 (right after midfielders went live, ugh bad timing) so sold that and the 91 KDB and bought the TOTY. Couldn’t be happier.

    The only downside to the other KDB cards was the pace and obviously the bump is a game changer. His balance, acceleration and quickness is all a huge step up. I’m extremely happy w the upgrade.

    I play the 4-3-1-2 and I have him at CAM behind my forwards. The perfect spot for him IMO.

    With 5* wf he will be notably better than gullit as a cam. Gullit obviously a better cm (source - I have both)

    Correct, so if you want a midfield general it would be Gullit or Kante. However if you want an attack specialist KDB is the best. Put a hunter or hawk and he basically got all the required stats at 99, two footed, fast and strong, just perfect.

    Whilst I still think he is absolutely incredible.

    Anyone find his finesse shots to be underwhelming ? Even crap ? Or is it just me ?

    Other than that he breezes past players, seems to be everywhere, always finds a man with passing, hits through balls even I couldn't see and pretty much hits the target with every standard shot

    It's going to pain me to sell my fist ever toty in 8 years but all those coins doubt I'll find a better midfielder like him again

    He bangs in top of the box finesse shots for me. So just you?

    Yeah finesse shots are not his best quality...
