We are aware of an issue with FUT Crashing for Virgin media users & we are working on this. Apologies for the inconvenience this is causing. We have a thread discussing it here.

Having a "fitness team"

Since FIFA 10 I've always had at least one team I consider my "main one", and a secondary team that plays quite decently too (and sometimes, even better than the first team). But on FUT Champions it's not really just possible to afford to have a "weaker team", for which I sold all my stuff and got myself only one team that is very good, without fitness team- being forced to buy fitness cards every two games or so.

Even though the saying goes: "Don't put all your eggs in the same basket", it seems like sometimes it works as long as you keep good care of your basket!

What are your thoughts? Do you find it more cost effective to have two teams, or better just one? Do "first teams" really play better for you?

    I personally think they should take fitness depletion out of FUT Champs and everyone should be playing with their best XI every game

    I use just one and the reason is that the game is too competitive nowadays to have 2 teams.

    In WL I want to get as high as possible so I don't feel like playing with a worse team just to up the fitness on my main one. Rather buy a fitness card then

    That would be silly to just remove it from one game mode though.

    100% Agree. But would like it even more if they took fitness out completely!

    Remove fitness loss & associated consumables, infact remove all consumables

    1. We don't want them in packs
    2. Would lighten the load on the servers

    I do understand that consumables can keep inflation under control but I would still like them all gone

    I have 20 teams. Play with whichever team takes my fancy.
    Yeah, I like to win, but I don't take it that seriously that I have to use a Mega OP or Super Squad to play WL with.
    Sometimes I will use my 'best' teams and sometimes i will use 1 or 2 of my other squads just because i fancy playing with them instead.

    All year I just used one main squad, but around May I realized there were plenty of USA special cards, decided to make a USMNT fitness squad. Gotten the best possible US team now and I much prefer it to my 189 rated main squad :D

    OP have you tried the bronze pack method? The 1.5k pack atm seems to yield at least one team fitness per pack with most having something sellable in them... been coasting along using that since switching to one main team. Probably spend around 10k per weekend league and make that back in games played. Could probably make a lil profit too if I had a bit more patience searching through all of bronze cards in my club too :blush:

    100% FUT Champs isn't worth it if you have 2 teams and only get like silver 3/2. You'll end up spending more on quad fitness cards than you'd make (unless you get a ridiculous pull)

    Surely you mean only one team? (If you have two then you won't be spending on fitness cards)

    I always create my squads in sets of two with one being the bench/subs for the other one.

    Currently rolling with six teams:
    • Premier League stud team (Ibra, Son, Eriksen, Pogba, etc... ) paired with Bundy Brazil
    • Bundy Brazil (Three DKT in Pulisic, Marquinhos, Rudy along with Thiago Silva, Ederson and Bundesliga) paired with Premier League studs
    --
    • English Bronze Team with four TOTS players paired with German/Dutch bronze team
    • German/Dutch bronze team with Emre Mor and a mix of Netherlands and German bronze paired with English Bronze
    --
    • Futties team with all the Premier League Futties players paired with Brazil team
    • Brazil team with SBC Jonas, FUT Champs reward Costa and TOTS Brazil guys paired with Futties team
    --
    That being said I agree with the previous posters that the bronze pack method can get you all the fitness cards you need at no cost.

    I had 1 team all year, but I made a fitness team out of my untradeables and my red cards last week. Doesn't really matter tbh both methods are fine.

    I always use 2 squads. But now both my main and fitness are about even. With the TOTS packs I amassed an armada of squad fitness cards. So i tend to use 1 squad every 4/5 games.

    I have a basically full untradeable fitness team that I use once every 3 games. CBA with fitness cards, especially at this point when they are a bit pricey. At the start of the game I tend to use one team especially in WL.

    I have been thinking about making one lately, mainly because whenever I make a big purchase or upgrade and run out of coins, it makes it very hard to play with just one team. I had to make some tweaks this last WL cuz I ran outta coin after doing the Dybala SBC.

    I found I save more coin by using single fitness cards on 5 or so players, after every other game, instead of using squad cards at 1400 +. I switch from my CMs and attackers to using cards on my Defenders and such every other game. Try to squeeze more games outta my CBs before using cards on them.

    I think a good question OP, would be to ask at what point do you apply a fitness card to your main team. I cant let my players get below 85 at all, but usually I don't even let them get that low lol, like 90 is were I start looking to use a card on them.

    In WL, players get more gassed than in seasons so I feel its pretty important. I don't see why we have those +40 fitness cards, who actually lets them get that low?!

    Man if I had the remainder fitness saved from cards, I would never have to buy them again.
