How to use this guide
Your Virtual Pro has an initial value and a max “cap” value for each of their attributes. The choices you make on your Pro’s position, height and weight all dictate these maximum attribute values, so it is critical to review and understand what and where your Pro’s attribute ceiling will be.
In order to do so, our Position guides provide you with a number of data views so that you can evaluate the different build combinations to find one that has the right balance for you and your playstyle. In this guide you will find (all by H/W combination):
- Total of Initial Attributes
- Total of Max Attributes
- Total of Max Pace Attributes
- Total of Max Physical Attributes
- Total of Max Defending Attributes
- Total of Max Passing Attributes
- Total of Max Dribbling Attributes
- Total of Max Shooting Attributes
The CM position has a bias towards the average height and weight builds – a reflection of it’s “jack of all trades” attribute map. The maximum attribute totals (both Initial and player Cap) are for the 5’7″ – 5’8″, 150 – 174kg build.
The difference between the highest and lowest build totals is 34 points at attribute caps. In other words, you will have 34 more attribute points if selecting the 5’7″ – 5’8″, 150 – 174kg build vs the 6’7″, 225 – 253kg build.

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 CM position, the categories with the biggest difference in Attribute points are:
- DRIBBLING: 43 (528 vs 485)
- PACE: 42 (157 vs 115)
- SHOOTING: 38 (665 vs 627)
