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
In terms of attribute totals (both for the initial build and attribute caps) the highest ones for the Wide Midfielder position can be found for the heavier and taller builds, somewhat unintuitively. The maximum attribute totals (both Initial and player Cap) are for the 6’7″, 225 – 253kg build. Note: this takes into account *all* attributes, there may well be some traits that you prioritise over others and as such it is worth familiarising yourself with the category breakdowns below.
The difference between the highest and lowest build totals is 64 points at attribute caps. In other words, you will have 64 more attribute points if selecting the 6’7″, 225 – 253kg build vs the 5’3″ – 5’4″, 100 – 119kg 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.
One notable difference for Winger and Midfielder builds is that Passing attributes are typically highest for Larger/Heavier builds. This is in contrast to Strikers and Forwards, where we saw the highest scores for smaller builds.
For the Winger position, the categories with the biggest difference in Attribute points are:
- SHOOTING: 63 (678 vs 615) – a huge difference and slightly higher than Winger builds
- PACE: 47 (164 vs 117) – lower than Winger builds
- PHYSICAL: 36 (323 vs 287) – higher than Winger builds
