Earlier this week, we told you the surprise decision for EA to stick with an 86 rating for Luis Suarez on FIFA 14, despite his amazing performances for Liverpool last season. It’s not just Suarez who is on the receiving end of a debatable decision though, as you may have heard that Gareth Bale has been given an 87 rating – another subject of huge debate among FIFA purists.
This is the same player who blew defenses away last season in the Premiership, scoring 20 goals in the process from a midfield position. He single-handedly advanced Tottenham into Europe for this season and his performances alone was the key catalyst in paving the way for a world record transfer to Real Madrid for a cool 100 million Euros.
Despite that though, EA still only believes he is worth an overall rating of 87, placing players such as David Silva and Robben ahead of him with both having 88 ratings. We realize that comparisons shouldn’t necessarily be made with the different positions that players have, but surely logic wins out on this occasion, with Bale easily deserving a score of 89-90 instead.
We still see that there is a lot of discussion on EA’s official player ratings, with a lot of fans mystified over some of the choices that have been made. We too picked up on Luis Suarez 86 rating here – some of you disagreed, but a lot of you felt that the player deserved better.
Bale is in the same boat we think. Do you believe that Bale should be rated higher than an 87 on FIFA 14 or not? Give us your valued opinions on this below.
