    85 Blanc’s price is crazy. I know he’s very very good, but is he really worth that much?!

    Anyone else cashing in on him?

    He is good, but not worth that much.

    Blanc was worth it when he was around 650k. I replaced him with IF Pereira and team hasn't skipped a beat. Saved me 800k at the time.

    Yeah agree, more important to spend in attack.

    So who would u replace blanc with?

    87 Hernandez.


    You’d replace blanc with a striker?

    Yes, midfielder's aren't as important in this Fifa. Interceptions were nerfed in Fifa 18, it's a striker who will get most your chances, the play usually bypasses the midfield. Strikers, Cam is the most important positions IMO.

    I really disagree with this statement tbh, a good defence and midfield will completely change games, whereas you could use Jesus and Martial upfront who would score as much as CR7/Icon

    I prioritise in this order

    CDM -> CAM -> CB -> GK -> ST's -> CM's -> Full backs

    I'd much rather buy this SIF De Gea coming out next week over someone like Crespo

    Agreed.

    Yeah I’m not agreeing with this either. What I was after is a decent replacement for 85 blanc who i think is too expensive.

    I've seen alot of pros on streams like Shellz and Gorilla/Tass etc all saying the best order of upgrade is back to front because a good defence and midfield will win you more games than your attack, obviously this doesn't apply if you try to use bronze strikers and a cam haha

    I used to agree with this statement, always asked myself - why spend 1.8m on CR7 when Martial + Jesus seems to be stupid OP for their price tag.

    However, I bought CR7 for a second time and I have to say it was worth every penny. He changes games where Martial and Jesus may fail. That extra edge is worth it to me in terms of 'changing games'.

    I think the midfield is probably the most lackluster in my opinion. Not sure if it's my preference or what but maybe it's just because I haven't had top players in those roles - playing with Marchisio - Bakayoko - Rui Costa there atm and they haven't questioned me one bit.

    Not sure if i wanna take the coins for 91 Dinho and wait for his prime or just hold on to the 91 and upgrade elsewhere :# The 91 is my favourite card in the game but the prime just looks more like the Dinho i remember.

    God knows when he’ll be released though, at this rate we’re looking at the last ones being dropped just before the World Cup.

    Have you watched two pro's playing against each other? They're always high scoring. If this was Fifa 17, I'd say defence to attack. This game is unbalanced in the final third, so a strong attack is a necessity.

    No way he's going down any time soon, just enjoy him until his prime comes out and then sell him

    Keeping mine forever now (unless the prime one is under 2m, which it won't be). Too attached to him and played nearly 1k games with him

    Yea that’s the problem, gonna be difficult to sell if i get attached so gotta make a decision before then lol. Yea i imagine with the position change the 91 should hold its price well when the prime drops but that 94 just looks like thee Dinho card to get lol. There’s also like no RW that interests me yet on the game which is something else i’ll need to consider.

    You're making me want the LW one now, please stop lol

    If you put Engine on both of them they're both essentially maxed but the 94 rating over the 91 looks so much better + a 1 owner prime Ronaldinho is so hard to turn down.

    Honestly, I think it all depends on what player model he has in game.

    The RW is a turnoff for me as well atm but TOTY Messi is here soon and he'll be fine with his massive stamina boost tbh

    Have 2.5 million total coins & also have Prime Costa. Planning on submitting Costa for ADP’s SBC now, & will probably do whoever’s released next between Crespo, Vieira, & Rijkaard.

    What was the cheapest you guys were able to complete ADP’s for when boosts were active (disregarding the Icon submission)? Thinking it might be possible to do it for around 400-500k.

    Not this year with how bad TOTW packs are lol. And yea i tried that approach but 95% of my opponents pause at kickoff so it doesn’t really matter if i do it or not lol.

    I sold him :#@3NG

    Got out with 300k profit and i guess there’s a chance he could drop a bit with Christmas promos and stuff but even if he goes up i’m happy with the price. Won’t be able to afford TOTY Messi so it’ll probably be the highest version of Mbappe or another icon / LW off chem. Henry will have to wait a while to get his partner back :(

    Also have no idea how he sold, there were 2 up for 50k cheaper at the same time lol

    :'( I'll make sure to use the salute celebration when 'Dinho scores for me today

    Could even use a ST at RF as well but I'm sure you'll get lucky with your WL rewards or monthlies down the line. I've gotten terrible rewards all year but last week I got Sterling x2 from my E1 rewards which wasn't too bad

    All you need is DDG from this week and that's 1m (I need to find 1m to buy him :( )

    Definitely has something to do with it but a well timed L2 bump works wonder with him, tbh. I've found no problems with his strength
