    Time to revive this thread. Just qualified in my first attempt. Who's in so far? Gotta say that the servers felt really smooth this time unlike last year. Hope it stays like this in the actual WL.

    Qualified yesterday, was surprised how easy it was, expected to face really good opponents but I guess I got lucky this time.

    Servers actually felt good, hopefully it stays the same when WL kicks off.

    I'll give qualifying a go tomorrow once I finish both of my teams!

    Btw think i'm right in saying futchamps rewards will coincide with the release of prime icons in packs. Both on Thursday, right?

    Gold 1 might be more lucrative than elite 3 & 2 assuming rewards are the same as last year, especially with how many discard IFs they've added to TOTW this year.

    Especially for the first couple of weeks Gold 1 might be the best

    Not great but not bad either IMO. Will upgrade defenders after this WL.

    I agree mate. 28 wins X4 = 112 wins which I believe is the min required for E1 monthly.

    I believe they should add an additional 100k pack to all the elite rewards, would balance it out.

    Qualified in the first go, let's see how many games I can get into this. Never made it to 40 games.

    Playing:
    Fahrmann
    Piscszek - Sokratis - Bartra - Schmelzer
    Keita - Goretzka - IF Aranguiz
    Pulisic - Werner - Kostic

    Trying to have Kostic replaced by OTW Bruma and thinking of T. Müller to replace Werner as 2 fast wingers and crosses might have Müller as the better choice.

    15 minutes to go and I'm totally not in the mood to grind through 40 games + the squad battles to maintain Elite 1 on this weekend. Game just doesn't feel like fun right now. Anyone not stoked about playing as well?

    Won because of a header with muller? :neutral:
    Lost my first game but my second was hilarious.. was loosing 2-1 and he started to shield @ the cornerflag since the 70 minute i've made the equalizer in the 90th. In the 95 minute he takes the lead and dabs.. after that i scored 2 quick goals and dabbed him -> ragequit :lol: so satisfying

    Started comfortably with 3:0 and didn't concede more than 2 goals overall while scoring 14. Played against 3 non-creative PL squads so far, so it's the same as every year.

    The game feels more than F-Zero than FIFA though, the speed is really f**ked up. Don't know if that's lag or the same for everyone, but I'm getting huge problems against good opponents with all of my players ice-skating.

    Got myself loan POTM Mané and holy cow, this card is insane. Scored 8 of the 14 goals and feels just so rapid (may be because of the hyperspeed gameplay). I said to myself I won't do POTM SBC this year, but this guy got me thinking.

    Few things I've noticed:

    Tackling statistics of both sides went down drastically, maybe because of new cursor. Against a really, really good opponent it is close to impossible to retain the ball if he is passing around.

    Auto-clearance is the most annoying thing in the game. My defenders receive the ball with tons of space in my box, I already have a plan of starting the counterattack, but he just blows it in the stands. Really needs tuning in decision making in my opinion.

    Shooting delay is happening way too often. When I'm playing a low cross I don't want my striker to take another 2 touches so the GK strips the ball off, when it's a 100% goal with a simple tap-in.

    The CPU is commiting fouls way too often. Not specifically in this WL yet, but out of the 10ish penalties I gave away in 18, 8 were the CPU's fault.

    Good luck guys.
