He already has low mentality, that means he gives up easily and immaturely when he's tired, and when he's depleted but with only 74 STA how long can he last? Ben arfa does several full on sprints and runs down the wing and inside, and is constantly carrying, weaving, and bursting with the ball. 84 is what he deserves for the energy he uses every game.
that was my reasoning for increasing his stamina. i really think his stamina is not his problem. he uses so much every game, doing full field sprints with the ball, shimmies, dummies, constant changes of direction and bursts of acceleration, using his body to shield and barge. This stamina value only puts him 1 above Messi; Ben arfa uses so much more energy per game then Messi. He's an inconsistent player, i wouldn't mistake an off game for his true physical capabilities, at which he is a near phenom at his best.
Also @eric7, i think increasing BB is a realistic possibility. he's such a tank on the ball, he's got crazy balance. i don't think 83 BB is an unsuiting balance, when i was testing the set as i was first working on it, i liked the effect of it. I think he's become a little better at using his body to bully and shield the ball since then though.
I've restored TS to 85, lowered LPA to 76 (could be lower i think..) SPA to 77 (could be lower as well i reckon) and lowered shot technique to 77.
I reckon AGG could go up to around 89, though i've left it for now. ATT might need to be tweaked down by just one or two points, though it's just a quiet discomfort i've noted. DS could go up i've noticed, to about 93, he's gotten very comfortable with just running full speed down the middle, and favouring using his speed over using his control to beat players.
If you don't put effort into your post, i won't put effort in my response.
