The Centre Back position has a somewhat surprising bias towards shorter and lighter builds. The maximum attribute totals (both Initial and player Cap) are for the 5’3″ – 5’4″, 120 – 149kg builds.
The difference between the highest and lowest build totals is 129 points at attribute caps. This is the biggest difference of any position and has a marked impact on your Pro’s overall ability. In other words, you will have 129 more attribute points if selecting the 5’3″ – 5’4″, 120 – 149kg build vs the 6’7″, 200 – 224kg build.
Total of Initial Attributes
ATTRIBUTE CATEGORY TOTALS
General trends in Attribute categories are apparent across all positions – such as Pace being highest in smaller, lighter builds – however, the degree to which these apply does differ by position. In addition, each position features different Attribute Max Caps, making it crucial to compare and understand each position’s strengths and limitations.
For the Centre Back position, the categories with the biggest difference in Attribute points are:
- DRIBBLING: 63 (510 vs 447)
- PACE: 51 (158 vs 107)
- PASSING: 37 (391 vs 354)
One thing of note is that Height/Weight of the Centre Back build has very little impact on a number of attributes categories, which have only small total variance between max and min builds: Physical (25), Shooting (18) and Defending (17).
