WC: Earlier this week, EA Sports began upping the anticipation and excitement levels for the much-coveted release of FIFA 15 by drip-feeding us the ratings of the top 50 players.
So far, we’ve only had the first thirty and debate is already raging over the fact that Iker Casillas, a ‘keeper who had a horrendous World Cup – his decision making was particularly questionable in the mauling Spain faced against the Netherlands – a ‘keeper who also, until recently, hadn’t even been Real Madrid’s No.1, maintained such a high rating of 84 – this is, however, a rating drop of two points from his FIFA 14 level.
The debate of FIFA player ratings will be a debate that our kids will argue about, and their kids after them and their kids after them…you get the picture. FIFA will never EVER release a game were the users go: “Yep, all 16,000 or so players are rated perfectly.”
So, until the impossible utopia is reached, let’s take a look at who we think will be knocked down a peg or two this time around. Will Cristiano Ronaldo’s poor World Cup mean he falls further than the two-point gap between him and Lionel Messi in FIFA 14?
