Right, this maybe isn't a conspiracy but it's something, I've had the first part wrote for a little while but I wanted to test this again (last player doesn't mean in the last slot, it just means added into the team last in any position)...
I've played a lot of FIFA this year and I've had more than my fair amount of BS through this game especially on Weekend League but this Weekend League especially when I was using mainly untradeable players I kinda think I've found something out.
I was using a standard Bundesliga team with the likes of Renato, SBC Costa etc but what I noticed is when I add someone into the team (so the last player) which was IF Latza the rest of the team had an impact... I felt like their stand out parts in the game were passing and long range shooting. This is mainly due to Latza's 84 short passing and his 98 shot power and 95 long shots.
However due to this one of the main weaknesses were pace and dribbling, I then noticed that he had 68 sprint speed and 79 dribbling which isnt really great. So after this I got rid of Schurrle at LF and added in my man Coman.
Again I noticed a huge change in the side and you guessed it the main parts of the team that I was struggling with I kind of got a 'boost' in the dribbling and pace areas (93 sprint speed, 86 dribbling, 88 agility).
Right so I've just carried this on today with my BPL team that I'm going to use for the Weekend League and I've just added in Pogba and IF Gueye, I didnt realise till after 2 games I added in Gueye as my last player.
I kind of noticed straight away that the players I was used to playing quick attacking football, couldnt really pass and move like they used to when I used them a few weeks back. I kind of got smashed in one of these games but the other I hit the post 3 times and such.
I've just played another two games however this time I've added POTM Hazard as my last player in the squad and I've noticed how the movement and such has seemed to have been ramped up, players that were sluggish and took a while to pass could now LT + RT dribble in a better way (mainly due to the 95 dribbling and 94 agility).
Obviously I'm not 100% sure this is a thing but can people please try this out as I'm sure there is something effecting this and if other players try I'll definitely try and tell my self I'm not going insane
Also if you're using a team full of TOTY's and high rated IF's you team will probably be unbelievable anyway. Please let me know how you get on and what you think of this post...
