Is FIFA 19’s slowest player almost as fast as Kylian Mbappé?

A FIFA player has suggested that FIFA 19’s slowest player is almost as quick as the game’s fastest player, Kylian Mbappé.

The Frenchman, who won the FIFA World Cup back in July, has a pace rating of 96, with Wolves midfielder Adama Traore the only player in the game who can match his blistering speed.

However, one FIFA fan on Twitter reckons that there may not be a massive speed difference between Mbappé and the games slowest player, Aaron Hughes, who has a pace rating of 24.

@RobTGF decided to test how big the difference in speed between the two players actually was. The test saw both players start with the ball at the edge of their penalty area, and then run up the field to the opposing team’s goal line.

The distance from the edge of the penalty area to the goal line is around 82 yards, with the Paris Saint-Germain player completing the sprint in 11.45 seconds. The Northern Irishman completed the same test in 13.1 seconds, meaning the time difference between the two was 1.25 seconds.

Using these results, we can see that Mbappé runs at a speed of 14.64 MPH, while Hughes sits at a top speed of 12.73 MPH. The discrepancy between the two is less than 2 MPH. So is pace really not such a big factor this year? Maybe we shouldn’t take Rob’s test as proof.

While that figure may not seem like a lot, 1.25 seconds over the distance of 82 metres is quite a big margin. Indeed, as Andy Castell has pointed out on Twitter, it adds up to a 12 yard difference over 80 yards.

EA SPORTS have launched a Pre-Black Friday event in FIFA 21, setting things up very nicely for a Black Friday event this Friday. Here’s everything we know so far. 

Following on from Team of the Week 9, which included the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku, FIFA 21 players were wondering what’s next.

Now we know Black Friday in FIFA 21 is set to kick off, which will have a great impact on FUT Packs in the game mode.

A whole host of changes have been made to FIFA, especially when it comes to defending.

When does it start in FIFA 21?

EA have confirmed Black Friday in FIFA 21 starts up on November 27, launching alongside the huge sales advertised across the world from Wal-Mart, Amazon, and many other retailers.

Things will work a little differently in-game, however, and there’s good news for players.

What is Black Friday in FIFA 21?

Here’s the Pre-Black Friday screen in FIFA 21.

This event will consist of hourly pack offers, special Squad Building Challenges (SBCs) and special Daily or Weekly Objectives. These will be mixed up continually throughout the event, and we could even see new promo players added to SBCs – perhaps a little cheaper than usual.

The Pre-Event starts on Thursday, November 26, and that’s where the ball will start to roll on this in-game event. What the deals will look like remain to be seen, as the teaser seen above doesn’t quite give much away.

In recent years, developers have flooded the market with 50k, 100k, and 125k packs. These have rolled out in lightning rounds throughout the day, with other varying pack types between, making it potentially the best time to try your luck. The best of TOTW can also appear in packs, which may lower the pack weight of top players.

Once the official list of SBCs and Objectives go live for this event, we’ll be sure to let you know. Not only that, but more information on the FUT Pack sales will also be added here, too.
