Prime Rio Worth It?

Have a number of high rated untradeables (90 zlatan, 86 gio- just got the 90 in pack) so was thinking i would do the Prime Rio SBC or could afford to buy his 88. Worth it to do the sbc instead?

    He's good, yes. However with tots out now, you will see many alternatives for cheaper

    Only if you have a lot of untradables that make him super cheap.

    Wouldn't say it's wise to spend that much on an untradable when TOTS is out. But he's a top defender, so it's up to you, I guess.

    He is for sure the best center back in the game right now. I see it as by doing prime rio u have a much wider opportunity to try different op tots defenders due to the links

    Yeah I’d say that’s pretty much my exact same thought haha.

    As much as I'd argue against prime icons at the moment, Prime Rio is just as good as any top TOTS defender, once you've thrown an anchor/shadow onto him. He's such a presence in defence, you really notice him.

    Additionally, while some of the cheaper TOTS are fun to use, they're impossible to link properly unless you have icons. For me, having a few prime icons is allowing me to try out players like MOTM Talisca, TOTS Van Ginkel, IF Arias, SIF Telles etc....... and that makes the game fun for me personally

    What you just described and what has been stated before is kind of the two thoughts i have about it. Prime CB would make it easier to create some fun teams and use some other players that aren’t used as often but also hard spending that much for untradeable with tots here. Are his lower rated cards tradeable better options or does that make it less worth doing it for like the 88 rio?

    Couldn't tell you about the 88, I've only used the 90 version. Over the many months I've had him, he's consistently solid. Makes the odd mistake but every CB does the same thing, such is defending in this game.

    Sure, there may well be some comparable TOTS CBs for 50-100k, but you mightn't be able to get these guys onto full chemistry without an icon at the back. If getting Rio allows you to use some other fun players, and makes the game fun for you, then you should absolutely do him. I've really enjoyed using Talisca and Van Ginkel. I wouldn't have been able to use these guys without icons

    Same. Worthless is just too negative. He stops every single challenge; he even pushed over 87 Lukaku so that should tell you something. Maybe those who said he's worthless are bad at defending.
