I'm a gold 3/2 player and I seem to get the bs whether I bronze bench or my team is 88 rated full of special cards is it just a FIFA placebo I got my highest ever 24 wins with a stacked bench and team

    No, only thing it does is give you less options on the bench imo

    i do if im only using 1 team. usually have 4

    i do it because every time i have a stacked team with high rating. it plays like trash.

    i have some cool red bronzes too which i would otherwise never use.

    I tried it and it didn't change anything for me, I now rotate an 88 and an 87 rated squad with 1 super sub for both and get the same results and gameplay as with a 79 rated squad.

    Yeah, with 4 gold subs tho, so its not exactly effective. (88 rated still).
    I now stick to the same set routine each game. 2 players on at HT, and the third is offensive or defensive with 15 mins to go depending on the game.

    Its more to stop myself doing other stupid things. I play so much better using the same team over and over again, there is no need to have extra subs.

    Not bronze benching mainly for two reasons - switching between two squads for fitness and not being a bitchboi.

    Bronze benching in WL is a bad idea imo. Especially due to ET. I have low rated OP golds on the bench :P

    No because I've a bench full of sbc's and untradeable. What I do feel is that against teams with roughly the same team rating the game plays fairer compared to lower rated teams. Handicapping I think it's referred as. That's why people bronze bench, to cheat!

    Nah but here is the thing.

    Let's say it doesn't do anything, then it doesn't really matter whether you do it or not.

    If it does make a difference, then ofcourse you do it. Everyone plays to win, no? It's like playing with pacey CBs. Everyone does it because the slower ones usually don't cut it.

    But...

    It doesnt make a difference.

    Its nothing like playing with a fast CB

    Well then it doesn't matter so who cares whether you play with a bronze bench or not

    I usually bench 2 bronzes because I started doing it 3 years ago and it's an ocd
    But.. i'm 100% sure it doesn't work at all
