Same Icon Card - Performs differently!

I bought and sold a Prime Cruyff twice over the span of 2 weeks or so.

The first one was clinical and the second couldn't hit the side of a barn (same chem style and position).

Has anyone else experienced this issue with any card?

    You probably got the same Prime Cruyff card I had. Underwhelming and bad all around.

    More likley in Cruyff's head; I play in a very mechanical fashion, so, I can make out if the shooting is sub-par or not.

    I had similar issues with some other cards and came to the conclusion that there could be some coding eff up which is causing this. Would be great if we could check this before we buy; it's like spending a few million on a Lambo with a VW engine.

    All of the cards are the exact same, if you get a fresh prime or one with 1000 games it makes no difference

    That's what I thought as well; it's just bloody code with pixels on screen... And then I saw Cruyff missing so many easy opportunities inside the box which would go in 10/10 with my previous Cruyff.

    I'm having similar issues with my TOTY Mbappe. Last one I had was scoring 2:1 goals per game. This one is far, far worse and falling over his own feet. Nothing has changed in my team or formation. Don't understand it.

    Probably this.
    Could also be;
    Different patches/updates, different connection qualities, creating slightly more 'delay', giving more chance for human error.
    It is NOT that 1 card was good and 1 card was broke.

    It's because you lose all the excitement the second time round because you've already used them,and it's more likely the players haven't got worse we just think they are better than they are first time round because they are brand new to us
  • It's just gameplay. Sometimes the players feel out of form and then 2 games later they are scoring hat tricks. I noticed this a lot more with really high rated players.

    When I put Moments Henry in my team for one or two games whatever I do he would miss easy chances, especially against a NIF Gold team with maybe a rebound tap in as my only goal.

    The next game he is weaving through players and scoring beautiful hat tricks. I think it's the way the coding of this game is. It is very dynamic.

    This. Anyone who says otherwise needs checking

    I suspect the coding as well...

    It’s not the cards, it’s the gameplay.

    One day your players / tactics / formation all works and it plays like a dream. Next day it’s not working and you’re wondering what’s gone wrong.

    Makes it very difficult to accurately gage how well certain things are working for you.

    Example, I could get a loan icon and play him when nothing is working, then get a different icon and this is during a period where everything clicks. I would of course believe the first icon to not work for me, whilst believing the second is fantastic. But this wouldn’t necessarily be true..... confusing tbh.

    I always think morale is still in the game. Had lineker and he was so poor for 10-12 games. He felt like A bronze or something. Once I got him scoring though he was absolutely unstoppable and became my most clinical striker ever
