Special cards not needed.

I am the regular moaner on here as I have been struggling all year.

A few weeks back I suddenly cointreau take it anymore of getting all the bad bounces and struggling to compete and bouncing around div 8.

Now since my awakening and using one of those scrub sides that people all.moan about I can suddenly pass and score and tackle effectively.

So I have now won the title in div 8 7 6 5 4 with games to spare.

Not saying I am the greatest player as I still consider myself average as my attempts in fc show but I have qualified for this weekend on w/l alone for only the 3rd time this game cycle.

There is definitely something good wrong with special cards causing clashes of some nature.

    good players don't play seasons, now you're playing the cheapskates who wait 10 months for fifa to come down in price so they can buy it

    I beg to differ. Playing many full blue sides with 88 average. You don't get those sides within a month.

    Exactly, in your experience. That does not mean special cards are useless to all because you don't have success with them. The meta at the highest level consists of TOTY cards, high rated IFs, TOTS cards, and POTM cards. Even at a lower level, 84 Ben Yedder is one of the most highly acclaimed lower rated IF cards. I have also used a good chunk of IFs, all which perform to their stats at the minimum. The experience with IF cards, in general, in the community, is the probably the best it has been in years.

    What was the team EXACTLY?
    And the team now EXACTLY?

    'Better' might not be better. Martial > almost all higher rated LW in the game other than Ronaldo.

    The point is though it works for me.

    Can someone else go all gold and see if it feels like a different game as it does to me.

    Just a question. How often do you type cointreau so that your device replaced "can't" with that word?

    TOTS, MOTM, IF, POTM and NIF players in my team, zero issues.


    What people need to remember though, is that players simply get upgraded stats they don't necessarily become 'better' than other players.

    A TOTS Cavani will be quicker than a NIF Cavani, he will finish better, dribble better, pass better, hold the ball up better etc etc.

    But he will still have 3* skills and weak foot and he still will never have the player model to be as well rounded as Ronaldo or as nimble as a messi or neymar.


    My general rule, if i like the NIF then upgrade, if i don't like the nif, don't buy the IF/MOTM/TOTS etc etc.

    So add

    Zieler
    Shaw
    Vertonghen
    Matic
    Toure
    Vardy
    Rashford

    Nope no troll

    Found too many strange things happening in games.

    Only cards that I don't have problems with are legends

    No.

    I am an old guy can't be arsed with that behaviour.

    The main gripe was a lot of these upgraded cards seem to be so static on the pitch. Not moving into space.

    Nah sorry, prefer to continue finishing Elite in WL and not scrape Gold 3. Need (almost) full special card to compete these days.

    Being ❤️❤️❤️❤️ and struggling in div8 will make you notice things like that.

    As mentioned above, very few good players or even average players will be bothering with divisions (& to a certain extent the WL itself)

    I notice you said that you qualified for the first time this week, again due to the poor rewards, a lot of players won't bother, especially if they already qualified by getting gold 3 & above.

    I'm not knocking you & congrats for qualifying but you are in for r a serious shock if you think those NIF teams will play better in WL than your special card team (I notice you still haven't posted what team you were using)
