Currently 23-7 and hoping I can be elite for the first time my previous best is 26 wins. Even the losses I've taken they're really close and I beat a guy that finished 29th in the world in January! Everything suddenly seems to have clicked in my gameplay from watching all the pros.

This is the amazing team that has helped me:

I have about 300k to upgrade my squad where do you think I should upgrade/save up for?

Now let's just pray for 6 wins from these last 10 o:)

    But I'm afraid you've to be prepared for a incoming ''choke'' moment... Epic WL thing, happens a lot.
    Good luck!

    Would anyone be interested in a quick summary in what I think helped push me to elite and the key things that I've added to my game which really helped me?

    Ok mate well I'd say there's 3 key important things that helped me.
    1) Team and formation - people say team means nothing but imo they're wrong it is still very important and ronaldo is just next level so if you can afford him don't hesitate. I also did the 'mainstream' thing of switching to 41212(2) in game and it honestly does work because it's so direct and also solid at the back.
    2) Wing play and body feints - this has been the biggest game changer for me and I was inspired by boras legend's attacking tutorial. It is literally ridiculous the number of goals you can score by working it to the by line and then just cutting it back. I used to always try it and it never worked but the key is timing and variation. For the first few times I will always go down the line and then simply do a backwards body feint and then drill it across the box which is very effective, waiting for my player to peel off of his man. However eventually your opponent will become savvy to this and begin to read the cutback so this is when the magic happens ;) if you do the body feint animation their defender will stop completely in his tracks because they are expecting you to cut back and at that point you can simply fake the body feint, run straight forwards and pass it across to score the easiest goal you'll eve score. If you continue to mix it up with your body feints all game it is literally impossible for the opponent to stop you every time.
    3) Switching formation - I actually heard about this from hashtag harry in aa9's podcast but it is actually genius and works brilliantly. As soon as I went a goal up this weekend I changed to the 433(3) and the logics behind this is as soon as the majority of players go a goal down in fut champs (myself included) they go into a frenzy of panic and start pulling their players all over the place, losing all their structure because they're so desperate to get the ball back quickly and equalise. When you are then using this very wide formation the wingers are in so much space it is ridiculous and i often scored 2 or 3 goals as soon as I changed to this formation this weekend which consolidated the win/ caused rage quits. Another advantage is in the dying embers of the game it is a formation where you can very easily hold possession due to all the space on the wings.

    Hope it helps, sorry about the length!

    When you switch in game formations, you need to do the player instructions again, right, doesn't it takes too long for a pause?

    nice man congrats, this was my best WL too, I just wish I got all the games in haha...finished 25-8 with 7 games still left to play, too tired/not enough time to finish, pretty unfortunate with a potential IF Messi in next week's TOTW :(

    If I was to pick up pogba should I replace kante or n'zonzi im really enjoying both? If I swapped n'zonzi I can change formation and still get full chem so it's fine
