For reference, the most expensive cards in “FIFA 17” you’ll need in the team are Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo ($244.87), Lionel Messi ($177.05), and Luis Suarez ($103.22) both from Barcelona. The rest of the team, which features a lot of Spanish players, are a lot less expensive than that despite their relatively high overall stats, so it’s definitely a matter of who’s a popular athlete on top of being good. The insane prices for those top three cards feel like you’re paying for rare powerful “Magic: the Gathering” cards for the competitive scene.
“FIFA 17” is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. Good luck getting those cards, if you’re not averse to spending real money to get better in the game.

FIFA 17 penalties in real life are just as hilarious and terrible as you think they’ll be

This video pretty much sums up everything we think about FIFA

When you’re winning on FIFA 17 – the game is amazing, flawless, the best one yet. When you’re losing – it’s terrible, totally flawed and the worst game ever.

And, of course, there are always a few things which just totally don’t make sense:

The keeper failing to kick out the ball properly when it’s passed back to him.

The constant inability to throw the ball to your own team.

And, of course, never scoring a free-kick because your opponent puts a man on the line.

“Not hard enough, darn it.”

In the video above, two chaps have decided to expose FIFA 17’s penalty system – and it’s hilarious.

Makers of the video, Dual Freestyle , manage to nail all the little things. From the way the keeper moves and dives to the penalty taker missing all of his attempts in pathetic fashion.

Partnered with the game’s commentary, it makes for very entertaining viewing.

However, one issue we do have with the video is that the keeper would definitely not get back up and save the ball – no matter how slow it’s going.

Well played, fellas.
