I'm thinking of going pack only

I'm looking for a way to get some more enjoyment out of the game and was hoping to see if anyone here is pack only as well and if you could share your experience. I would only ever buy players from the market to put straight into SBCs, so it wouldnt be 100% pack only in that sense. Also wouldn't use any FIFA points either, just grinding. Would I regret this decision massively?

    If you want to end up with a cheap Bpl team go for it

    Funny thing is, that's basically what I'm doing now. I have POTM Sterling as well as Martial and Vardy untradeable so I just have players around them. I have noticed that BPL players seem to be most common in packs so I may not end up with anything different

    This is exactly the type of reply I was looking for. Thanks! You've got me tempted to go this route too and hope for that rewarding feeling at the end. Have you used your coins to open packs straight from the store or just pump everything into SBCs?

    Not bought any packs, spend coins to buy discard golds and do sbc gold challenge... Use all the rare golds I don't want to do the 81+ and guaranteed informs etc.
    It can be frustrating especially early on with limited choices of players, if not for SBC's I definately would have bailed.

    I usually find when I waste time trading etc. I have a team full of in forms and I'm still rubbish, now I don't stress too much haha.

    Currently div 2 and just scraped gold 3 on the weekend... Can't see myself getting elite etc. Any time soon haha.

    Do not do this. Every single person who does this, regrets it.. be it immediately or when TOTS hits.

    This is probably correct... If I didn't do it from the start I wouldn't switch now, plus there are alot of players I won't get a chance to use for example if modeste, fairly cheap but I'll never get to use him, I was lucky to pull if hector.

    I'm not too fussed about using Ronaldo etc. Coz i dont have time or motivation to grind away trading

    I don't regret it, I have a 1.3M team locked up in untradeables and I'm really enjoying it

    Have a bad habit of chopping my teams about so this is forcing me to play better and it's working

    so basically you play matches to win coins and buy players to do SBCs and build your dream team? how long would that take?
