FIFA 18: EA Sports has just monumentally screwed up something about Ronaldo

Surely they didn't mean to do this?

FIFA 18 is out next week – but EA Sports still have a few issues to iron out before it hits the shelves.

One of these involves ICON cover star and Brazilian Legend, Ronaldo.

Ronaldo is regarded as one of the most skillful players that ever played the game

EA has awarded the former Barcelona and Real Madrid ace a four-star skill rating – which has caused a few problems.


Not only have gamers kicked off, saying the rating for arguably one of the most skillful players of all time is too low, but it means the star cannot pull off the ‘Elastico’ – the move that helped make him famous.

Only players who are five-star rated can pull off the spectacular move.

Just take a look at some of these comments.

It’s unknown yet whether EA will improve Ronaldo’s rating off the back of the reaction, however we wouldn’t rule anything out.

This could come as part of the Ratings Refresh period in early January – although we think it’ll be addressed sooner.

Speaking about FIFA 18, the web app is set to launch in the next day or so.

The app will serve to kick things off for the new game – allowing users to collect daily gifts and build squads early.

We go through everything you need to know about the FIFA 18 Web App.

When is the Web App released?

FIFA fan website Ultimate Team states that although there is no concrete release date, it’s possible to make accurate predictions based on EA’s release schedule in previous years.

They predict the FIFA 18 Web App will launch this week on September 21.

How much does the app cost?

The Web App is completely free.

What is the Webstart and will it return?

The Webstart will definitely be coming back this year. It allows you to trade and make coins, collect daily gifts and open returning user FUT packs.

Play it right and it’ll give you a real edge come FIFA 18 launch.

Sounds great – should I just open loads of packs when it launches?

Nope! Ultimate Team recommends Webstart users to avoid splurging FUT coins on packs during this period.

Good luck!
