I was more for them both staying on 99 tbh, unless people think we shouldn't give out 99 values for realism which I perfectly understand.
I don't think Ive seen him miss-control anything first touch wise, the ball was his slave when it came near him...plus being the ultimate showboater/flair player he probably utilized his tech more than anyone not called Maradona with his constant flicks, juggling past 2-3 players to bring it down effortlessly even on his back every match without a care in the world.
Im for lowering DA though. Some input from P1rha throughout the thread which i agree with:
I don't thin DA is the real key for Ronaldinho, imo it's all about agility, that quick body feint that makes his elastico so efective. Players like Figo, Messi or Zidane are real master of close control, more than ronaldinho, wich i would rate at 95~96. Besides, the current version is rated at 93, it's impossible to drop from 98 to 93, it's not a physical stat.
i'm just saying 98 is a little too much imo, i play with 96 DA/ Agil. 96 and no one can take the ball from him. Figo has DA 97/ Agil. 83 in my OF and it's a lot easier to take the ball from him. Plus u'll only get that samba style with very high agility, not that the current value is low, but it could be higher imo.
He moved the ball better... ok. But not so close to him, not so precise. From my pov Ronaldinho used more his body feint than controling the ball extremely close to him. I just don't think it's fair to other players, Figo is just an example, but wasn't Zidane's dribble more accurate? Or Hagi?
Besides it will be a bit hard to justify how this version has DA 98 while the actual one has only 93.
