FIFA 14 player ratings rage after Luis Suarez 86

With the issue over the FIFA 14 UK cover still up in the air following Gareth Bale’s transfer to Real Madrid, we’re pleased to see that EA has instead given fans information on a highly requested aspect of the game – FIFA 14 player ratings. We now know what rating players like Gareth Bale will have in FIFA 14, but we’re surprised to see a rather low score given to arguably one of the world’s best players, Luis Suarez.

On FIFA 13, Luis Suarez had an overall rating of 86. After an amazing season with Liverpool where he scored 30 goals, you would have thought that it would warrant an upgrade on his FIFA 14 ability as he is easily in the same class of some of the best players in the world today.

However, EA has released the top 50 player ratings in FIFA 14 and we’re very surprised to see that Luis Suarez remains on an 86 – no change whatsoever. Players above him with a higher score include the likes of Juan Mata (87), Mesut Ozil (87), Vidic (87) and even Robin Van Persie with an 89.

You could argue that Suarez is as least as good as the players mentioned above, if not better. Frank Ribery has a rather high rating of 90, while man of the moment Gareth Bale will only have a FIFA 14 rating of 87 – so according to EA’s logic, Bastian Schweinsteiger is a better player than Gareth Bale. Apparently.

No smile from me if I'm only an 86..
No smile from me if I’m only an 86..

Do any of you actually agree with their ratings system, as we have a feeling most of you will back us up in saying that they are rather strange. Carlos Tevez an 86 the same as Luis Suarez? What Premiership were EA watching last season we wonder.

Give us your thoughts on the ratings below.

suarez should be an 76 he’s crazy and rubbish and even though he’s rubbish he’s still too good for liverpoo

For Ribery, I believe he deserves its 90 rating same for Bale 86 is fair, though I would be ok with 87. Schweeni desserves its 87. But you are right, overall if we look closely at the ratings EA is very funny. Suarez would deserve an 88. Aguero an 84 -85 instead of 88. The funniest ones are Pique and Vidic… Pique should go down at around 82, Vidic is more talented in defense but always injured and too inconsistent They are nowhere near the likes of Ramos, Chiellini and T. Silva, these 3 deserve an 88. Also Ronaldo and… Read more »

Suarez would have been top scorer had he not been banned, he was 4 ahead of van persie at the time, and the pundits were saying he was the best player in the premier league, as he was consistently world class throughout the entire season, instead of the hideously overrated bale, who was only good for the late second half of it. Suarez is in the top 5 players in the world, he is faultless, if bale was as slow as suarez he wouldnt be half the player he is. 86 is a criminal rating for suarez and ea is… Read more »

Awful decision

Does it really matter as much as some people make out!? I’m not going to cry because I think one player should be 82 instead of 81 or something. I could understand such outrage if theo walcotts pace was set at 34 for example.

How can they ever put aguero up to an 88 when he done absolutely nothing all season and yet keep Suarez the same and then just to show how bitter actually are they go and make adebayour the same rating as sturridge goin on there like?

Bastian Schweinsteiger IS a better player than Gareth Bale.

EA have no idea. Not only are they being totally unreasonable about Suarez. Also Hazard, 85? I admit he didn’t deserve as high a rating as Suarez but 85 down from 87 is poorly. He improved last season and should have stayed an 87, or maybe pushed an 88. Same goes for Suarez, Mata, Bale, Gerrard, Luiz, Ozil, Fellaini, Baines and definitely a few others. All had stellar seasons yet it isn’t represented at all on the new FIFA. Its genuinely worrisome. Yet we don’t see a constantly injured, inconsistent and all round average Vidic drop below a very sprightly… Read more »

How can Gerrard & Suarez be named in FIFA’s team of the season, and their ratings not be improved, in fact Gerrards rating has got worse in FIFA 12 he was rated 87 & now after an even better seanon than the 10/11 he is rated 83? who decides this? The people at EA in charge of player rating must not even watch football!! This has left me so annoyed that I considered not getting the game, but 5mins later I relaised that I’m a slave to this annoying work of art.

Gerrard should be 85, Coutinho 84, Sturridge 85, Suarez 89, Lucas 81, Agger 84, Skrtel 84, Toure 81, Johnson 81, Enrique 80, Ilori 79, Sakho 86, Moses 82, Mignolet 83.

How do you rate Vidic at 87 , he has been injured for the last 87 seasons .. no stress guys . Edit your players as to how you feel they rate in reality which is Suarez 89 Bale 90 gerrard 85 Vidic 81 Surely ivanovic is better than a vidic

the comment about schweinsteiger is ridiculous. He’s been at the heart of Bayern’s midfield for years, Bale is good but hasn’t proved himself on the highest stage across multiple seasons.

what an absolute shambles, same old ea and fifa, dont like suarez so give him a ridiculous rating. he needs to be at least 89.

I think it’s disgraceful, Rooney is 87, Hart is likely to still be rated a pitiful 84 and Lampard and Gerrard were too low to make the list, meaning they must be 84 or under!

EA are Useless Busquets should be 75 or something, he wouldnt start in my school team, most overrated player of all time

ISSUES WITH THE PLAYER RATINGS (honestly, it’s like these were done by a 13 year old) 1) Marco Reus – Too low. After tearing defences apart in the bundlesliga and champions league, there is no way reus does not deserve to be higher than an 85. 86 or 87 definitely. 2) Vidal – Too low. After being potentially the best box to box midfielder, it is ludicrous that he is ranked 3 places below schweinsteiger, a player who, based on last seasons performances, is a player of equal ability. 87 or possibly 88 for Vidal. 3) Navas – Too high.… Read more »

Courtois not even there, he is equal to Neuer and they are both better than Buffon and Casillas who doesn’t even start for his team!
Godin and Miranda too, they were the best CB partnership in the whole of europe last season!

To me, it’s the same with Busquets being rated 86 and Gerrard 83 on Fifa 13.. How? I rate Busquets, he’s good at his role and fits Barca so well.. But 86? It seems to me that it isn’t based on player ability, but is altered to accommodate for their clubs standing.. Barca were really overpowered on the last one, this time it’ll probably be Bayern.

Wow just wow Alan, you don’t know anything about football or FIFA do you? You’re comparing players from different positions, defenders and midfielders in contrast to a striker? Are you joking? It makes your points irrelevant when comparing players. You do know there’s more to their attributes than just their overall score don’t you? Tevez same rating for Suarez? He’s scored in every appearance for Juve this season. Suarez has had 1 good season in the Prem, Tevez has proven his quality and assholeness for years.

suarez is arguably the best player in the league

wow cant believe this aguero 88 and suarez 86….it should be the other way around

the way they do it isn’t based on hes a 90 rating or we u used Bastian Schweinsteiger as an example the way they programed his stats then his position depending how high his stats are in the stats for a center mid equals the overall rating but yes Bastian Schweinsteiger is a better centre midfielder then bale is a winger by far

It’s a case of following the UK press and their hatred of Luis. The hypocrites have loved him during the summer when they thought he’d be going to Arsenal, now that he isn’t it will be back to normality. You see the same thing with the officials, the first 3 games they have treated Liverpool fairly (except for the cup game and that ref thought he was officiating a rugby match) but once Suarez comes back they will revert to giving us nothing. As I said hypocrites.

Their rating system has always been nonsense! I remember being incensed back when Steven Gerrard was probably the best player, based on form, in the world at the time and he was only rated around 87!!

comparing schweinsteiger with bale is ludicrous as they are completely different players, you might as well draw a comparison between a goalkeeper and a cb if you are going to compare players purely on their ratings
