Hello all, I’ve been playing FUT since FIFA 12 and have been a member of these forums for about 5 years now. In that time, I’ve found that despite being a D1 player I enjoy squad-building more than actually playing the game, particularly FUT14 & 15 which were absolute garbage. Squad-building is more restrictive than it used to be, every year I quietly hope for the return of the 1.5 nation links but I’ve settled for the scrapping of those awful formation links EA introduced a couple of years ago that served more to destroy hybrids rather than create them.
My addiction has had a direct impact on my club, as I take a less popular approach to Ultimate Team. I don’t aim for Ronaldo for example; nor Messi, Neymar or any premium player. For the price of Ronaldo I can buy dozens of special cards with link for all sorts of hybrids. I currently have twelve teams (with one variation) with four more in production (two of which are pending the completion of the MLS SBC). Some of these teams are competitive, some are just for fun; I just enjoy using different players.
Alpha Sub: SBC Toprak
Beta Sub: IF Shaqiri

So there you have it, to add a purpose to this thread other than showing off my teams I’m more than ready to post any player and/or squad reviews as well as offer my services as a squad builder. Hopefully there are others on here who share the same addiction as me.
