FIFA 18: Gamers can’t believe what EA Sports has done to Arjen Robben

Gamers are kicking off over the Dutchman's lack of a finesse shot trait

Hundreds of FIFA 18 gamers are kicking off at EA claiming the developer has failed to make Arjen Robben good enough in the game.

They cite that the Dutchman, known for cutting inside and scoring with his left foot, does not posses the finesse shot trait.

Players such as Anthony Martial and Dries Mertens both posses the trait – allowing them to score from distance more easily.

Yet many think it’s unfair that Robben, who has proved himself more than capable of scoring such goals, has been missed off the list for FIFA 18.

One gamer wrote on the FIFA reddit: “I think everyone who played FIFA for a while knows that how OP this trait is. Players who have this trait like Martial, Sonaldo and Mertens can just abuse the finesse shot and score easily.

“That’s why they are good and OP in FIFA.”

He continued: “However, the god of finesse shot, Arjen Robben, who banged in uncountable wonder finesse goals with his left foot in his typical style during his entire career, didn’t manage to get this trait.

“This is like a disgraceful bug, as he is one of the best finesse shooters in the world of football.

“I hope that EA is watching reddit and addresses it. There is not much time for us to enjoy playing with Arjen, so I truly hope that he can get what he deserves.”

Another gamer wrote: “Let’s be honest, I am a Robben fan boy, but no matter what, he should have the finesse shot trait.

“He is one of the best if not the best finesse shot taker in the world, so he definitely deserves it.

“I was actually p***ed when I found that he doesn’t have it.”

It’s not known yet whether EA will upgrade Robben off the back of the complaints, but don’t rule it out.

The Vancouver-based team was forced to upgrade Ronaldo’s skill rating to five stars, after gamers complained the Brazilian couldn’t perform his own Elastico skill move.
