    Ronaldo 94, Messi 93 and Neymar 92.
    Gap between Ronaldo and Messi=Gap between Messi and Neymar. FIFA logic!

    Very surprised by that.
    Not sure Ronaldo has done enough to be rates higher than Messi - the OVR should be reversed, or at the very least they should be equal at 94.

    FIFA ratings have become stupid now anyway. 90 is the new 85 and it's getting a little ridiculous...
    Also the star ratings need sorting out s little - normally a team with average 80+ players is 5 star, but when you look at Bayern/Barca/Madrid/United, the average is like 85 in some cases.

    They should downgrade all teams by 1/2 a star, except the best 5 star teams in my opinion.

    Lol at the Ronaldo rating. Absolute BS :lol:
    Quite possibly the most overrated player in football.

    Can't deny at his peak he was absolutely magnificent but I'd honestly rather have Suarez than Ronaldo.

    Tbf they probably made him the best as a result of Portugal winning Euro 2016.

    No doubt lol. Anyone who actually watched that whole tournament would have seen who the best player of the tournament was. It was his fellow teammate Pepe. By Fifa logic Pepe should be the best defender in the game.

    It's just ridiculous in all honesty - Ronaldo was okay but certainly wasn't standout.
    I mean what has Messi done wrong to deserve a downgrade anyway?

    FIFA ratings are terrible anyway - they consistently overestimate the quality of players at good teams and underestimate the quality of players at lesser teams. It hurts me to see how bad Liverpool are every year

    Nah the funny thing is how you get rustled by how a game designed for children rates your favourite player below someone else.

    What a load of *******s.

    Ronaldo had the better season of the two. Cant dispute that.

    Besides, Ronaldo's always been better in game because of his all round stats (why he's always the most expensive player on FUT).

    Finally FIFA have come to their senses.

    Both the players are primarily valued on their ability to score goals where they are both machines; but Ronaldo is better in this area. A flashy pass from Messi where he drops back to midfield to cover the fact of not influencing a game doesn't change that

    Why is Messi's pass rating so low then, when he's legitimately one of the best in the world in that area?

    Genuinely baffled by this - I agree that Ronaldo is the perfect specimen for a FIFA game (shooting, pace and physicality) but Messi's dribbling and passing are legendary. The man won multiple trophies this season and had the highest assists in the league, yet somehow gets a downgrade?

    It's sad to say but we all know the reason for it. It's because of Barca's deal with PES. Messi has gone to be the PES cover player instead, and as a result he isn't the highest rated on FIFA anymore.
    Seems a little convenient that Ronaldo is suddenly better rated when Messi has consistently been higher than him for years.

    Also, how is Neymar is only 1 point behind Messi?
    Fair play Suarez being 92 because he's the undisputed 3rd best in the world, but why the hell is Neymar rated so highly?

    EAIDS.

    Yeah agreed with you re the game, but irl it's hard to make a case for Messi being better than Ronaldo because Ronaldo was elite last season, despite not having the best euros himself

    Messi wasn't even the best player at Barca but somehow he deserves an upgrade ahead of the guy who's favourite to win the best player in the world award.

    Ok.

    Also that Neymar upgrade is stupid af. Probably because he won the Olympics.

    again he's favourite to win only because he won the champions league and euros. Did he actually perform like the best player in the world? A massive no.

    And I didn't say Messi deserved an upgrade by the way *

    'Only because he won the CL and Euros".

    Guarantee if that was Messi who won the CL and Confed you'd be banging on about how he deserved the award.

    Well considering you think Messi should be higher than Ronaldo that would imply an upgrade

    Why are people acting like it's just based on last season? If that was the case Mahrez would be above Aguero and De Gea but he's not and obviously shouldn't be.

    Ronaldo had a slightly better season, Messi is the better player, Luke is right for once

    I think I heard something once that FIFA ratings are meant to be largely based off the last 3 seasons in order to make things more consistent. That's why you don't "normally" see huge rating increases in players after just one good season.

    Based on that, it seems a little weird that Neymar is so high and Ronaldo has eclipsed Messi. Like I was saying, I think it's related to the PES/FIFA battle which is a real shame because Messi is obviously the better player.

    Neymar's position seems fine to me. 4th highest rated, and in the last 3 years he's come 3rd, 7th and 5th in the Ballon D'or. You could argue his actual rating is too close to Messi and Ronaldo, but that's because 94 is basically the limit, as Ultimate Team means they need to leave room for their upgraded cards.

    I wouldn't say obviously Difeo, not sure why people many people seem to have an agenda against Ronaldo. The man has been the best player in the history of arguably the two biggest teams in the world in Madrid and United. How much better can you really get... He's even smashed the Pl as a kid. (Although granted I agree Messi would too)
