The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

More symmetric face than the original. Should have "uglied it up" a little and it would look more real. Now it looks like a photo of Nadal that someone went to town with in photoshop. Still good I guess.
