  1. Just sold my whole squad as I won't be able to play FIFA until at least early July now. Have 1.75 million coins in the bank - so will be interesting to see what sort of team I can build then when the market has crashed towards the end of the game.
  2. I'm still having good fun with this game. Sure it has it flaws - every FIFA does. Enjoying it more than the last few iterations. I've found I'm having more fun now I'm not buying any points. I did my usual of buying points right at start to build a semi-decent team and then did another batch a month in. Think that second batch put pressure on me to play, as I'd spent money. Now I haven't spent anything for ages, with no plan to again on '19, the pressure is off and I'm enjoying myself. I've had some good pulls, some lucky trading (e.g. RTTF players who shot up) and I've got the best team I've ever had on FIFA. From March - July, I'm not going to be able to play at all. I'll be selling up late Feb and will be interested to see the team I can buy when I can play again in July.
  3. Yeah I think pace and agility is important to the CAMs. The ability to accelerate from the CDMs or defenders to make space before making a pass or keep running into the space. Reus and Werner are ideal for that, with Sanches roaming freely to make a pass, and Lewa to hold up play or get in the box.
  4. How's everyone finding the 4231 after switching to it? It took a little time to click for me when playing Rivals, as I had to change my play style. Gone are the days of passing it out wide to my pacey wingers and crossing it in onto Immobile's head. Yes this tactic can still work with Lewandowski as my lone striker, but the real killer play style here is fast passing on the floor, 1-2s and through balls. That clicked for me tonight and I won 3 in 4. The loss was a typical leading at 85 mins and then Fifa's momentum hands it to the opposition. The real test though, will be the WL this weekend. 92 Lewandowski is incredible - recommend him to anyone with the coins. Absolutely lethal. Scoring over 1 per game, with 4 in one of my wins tonight. Strong, pacey with a Hunter card and insane finishing.
  5. Nice team @ryanski. Mine is now as below: Had enough coins for 92 Lewandowski. Played some squad battles on professional level and he bagged 12 in 5 games. Lethal, but will see how he fairs in Rivals. Enjoying the new formation so far.
  6. Anyone use the 4231 formation? Is the setup that pretty much all the pros use, so going to try it out. Thinking of creating this team, with Goretzka being upgraded to Kante eventually:
  7. I grew up in that area, but a bit too young to remember those stores! There was a store (can't remember the name) in the Pavilions in Uxbridge that I used to go quite a bit. At one point it had a LAN PC setup in an upstairs room that was great! However, my one stand out memory was playing their demo unit of the original Xbox before it launched in the UK. It had a demo of Halo and I was hooked. I traded in my PS2 and got the Xbox at launch purely because of that demo.
  8. Gold 3 in this week's weekend league. Struggled a lot this week and made far too many mistakes. Think I'm going to give my team a mix up before I do another one.
  9. 7 wins, 5 losses for me in the weekend league so far. Werner TIF is incredible. Making me think about changing my team around so he fits in instead of Immobile. Have only played Werner for the last 20/25 mins in 9 WL matches and he has scored 6. Pretty epic goals per minute ratio!
  10. Exactly this. If they're going to be OTW style, they're going to be proper expensive. Especially the rumoured Neymar at CAM card.
  11. Got Hernandez and Werner as my player picks. Werner is going to be one hell of a super sub, so happy with that! Also got IF Bakayoko in packs who I'll likely sell.
  12. Cheers @AlfromSleep. I Iot gold 3 with 6 games to spare. Leaving it there. Don't want the stress and then struggle to get to sleep! Have had to fit this weekend league around a full weekend too, which added to the stress. Next week I've got a clear weekend, so will be able to do it a bit more leisurely.
  13. So after my 3 losses in a row yesterday morning I didn't play the rest of the day. First game this morning. 4-2 up and cruising with 10 mins left. Final score 4-5 loss. Nearly stopped for the weekend. But then 8 wins in a row! Lost the next so am going to leave it till this evening. On 12 wins with 9 games left. Be happy with Gold 3, so fingers crossed I can wrap that up quickly tonight so it's not a late one!
  14. Nope not going my way. 3 losses in a row.
  15. Played 8, won 4 lost 4 in the weekend league so far. Two of those losses I've conceded last minute goals and another with a loss in ET. Not much gone my way yet. Maybe tomorrow...
  16. Looking good. Definitely a more balanced team than the one earlier. It's quite a challenge to fit in all your talent into one team with great chem! If you were open to spending the coins, the below is in budget: But then the above is a waste of everyone else you have untradeable, so I wouldn't do it! 41212(2) is a formation that a lot of the pros use - so is worth considering if you're open to dropping wingers. In other news, went for tradeable packs for my Rivals awards today. Packed Sane, who got me 90,000 coins. Means I can upgrade my Nainggolan to his CL card
  17. Woah that's some list of players! Will see what I can do. Any formations you're particularly against? Do you like playing with wingers, etc.?
  18. Which ones are you're untradables? I'll have a crack at making a team later for you a Be good to know coin balance too!
  19. You'd be more solid at the back. Is there a reason for playing 3ATB, or purely to fit around the team?
  20. Seems to be a very attacking formation, especially if you have Isco moving forward as well. Ideally you'd have two solid CDMs there, that can run box to box if needed. Can see a lot of goals being scored, both for you and the opposition!
  21. I played four matches tonight and am enjoying it more after this patch. Played 4 - won 3, lost 1. Have definitely noticed a difference in opponents defending and found it a lot easier to carve teams up with my front 3. UCL Sanches is bloody awesome. Slots into my midfield perfectly. Really happy I picked him up. May give the weekend league another go this weekend, but doubt I'll fit in all 30 matches.
  22. Seems they're all on the rise and surely only going to continue rising for the teams that progress. I read that if for example say Inter Milan goes into Europa League for finishing third, that the Perisic card will turn into a Europa League OTW. Can't really lose! I've decided against Mertens IF in the end, as Immobile is still smashing it for me. Instead I got some better subs, with a couple of those being UCL OTW players. Now have: - Cuadrado UCL OTW - Perisic UCL OTW - Sanches UCL OTW - Fahrmann UCL OTW - Philipp UCL OTW - Milinkovic Savic EL OTW - Alonso EL OTW
  23. That's so shit @Pants McSkill. They make things so bloody hard sometimes, especially when you're looking to 'snipe' to get a good deal. I've luckily never done what you've done, but have been close a couple of times. I just managed to snipe Sanches RTTF (UCL OTW) for 15k less than the next BIN. He's going for 175k at the moment, which is mental for a 81 rated card. However, I think his first upgrade is to an 84 - as they're supposed to follow the normal IF procedure. Bayern can qualify tonight - so does that mean his card will jump up to the higher stats then? Or will we have to wait until all group games have finished? I've got RTTF Sanches, Cuadrado and Perisic. Also got EL OTW Alonso and Milinkovic Savic too. My team could instantly become a lot better over the next couple of weeks.
  24. Does seem prices hit their lowest on Saturday afternoon. I bottled buying IF Mertens and RTTF Sanches at that time, as thought they would go down further. Going to cost me about 50,000 coins extra to get them both now!
