EA Sports Receives Backlash After Releasing Player Ratings For FIFA 21

After release the much anticipated player ratings for FIFA 21, EA Sports got lots of negative feedbacks as people had issues with how it downgraded and/or upgraded some players.


Electronic Arts (EA) announced the top 100 players in FIFA 21 on 10th September 2020. The gaming company will release the game on 6th October 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC users. It will launch it for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S and X in November 2020.


As is tradition for the company, it released the player cards to show the different abilities that the players would come with. However, it turned out to not go well with gaming enthusiasts.


One of the major talking points was how Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson had the same rating. The two players are rated an overall 86 and many people did not like that. See some reactions below:

Also, game players took offense that Arsenal’s Aubameyang and Liverpool’s Firminho had the same overall rating at 87. One Twitter user posted:



Other talking points from the FIFA 21 player ratings release was that Barcelona’s superstar, Lionel Messi, finished as the best player in the game, with an overall rating of 93. This is a downgrade from is rating of 94 in FIFA 2020.


Juventus icon Cristiano Ronaldo comes after Messi with a 92 overall rating. Behind the duo, FC Bayern star Robert Lewandowski, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, PSG’s Neymar Jr., and Atlético Madrid’s Jab Oblak all have a 91 overall rating.


When FIFA 21 launches in October 2020, we will see how the player ratings translate in-game.
