FIFA ratings must be hard to get right.
EA Sports spends months analysing and watching hundreds of players before assigning them ratings across a variety of attributes.
Sometimes, though, it looks like they’ve cut a few corners.
Enter Internazionale midfielder and winger Antonio Candreva.
The 80 rated Italian has alternated between three and four star-rated skill moves since FIFA 14.
Every year, he flicks between the two ratings – meaning, if this pattern continues, he’ll be in line for four stars in FIFA 19.
So, how many stars does Candreva actually deserve? Well, the consensus is that four stars may be a bit too generous.
One gamer on Reddit wrote: “3* max. That guy can’t even cross.
“That makes us, Serie A fans, realize how strong Icardi is to be one of the best 9 in the league with a moron like Candreva crossing to the other side of the field 9 out of 10 times…”
Others were quick to leap at Candreva’s defence.
“He’s been whipping some beauties in the past 5 or so matches though…,” wrote one gamer.
Either way, it seems as though EA Sports can’t make their minds.
