What's your personal experience?

I've upgraded my team and doing much better in WL, but i see alot of people saying that upgrading is pointless as all teams play the same. Or comparing the likes of Jesus to Pele for example.

So wanted to get thoughts on it.

    The game is a mystery, obviously having a stacked team is going to benefit you but there's so much that goes on in the game that negates that at times. Player ability is also a major part of it but again that can be undone with a bit of EA bs at times.

    I use a cheap team for the first few months then go big. I think if you are good enough you can beat anyone with any team as long as you play to the strengths of your players.

    Should have picked other. When they play like they should they are superb. Sometimes they play like bronzes

    In WL my ceiling with a **** team is Elite 1/34, with an expensive team I can hit 36-38+, the game is hit and miss with all teams but it definitely matters

    Depends on variables.

    If I give my nephew my team, He wont qualify for the WL either. Even if he had R94 and co.

    Give me that R94 I could push for Elite.

    A good team will make a good fifa player 20% better

    A good team will make a bad fifa player 2% better

    Had basic La Liga gold team at the start - Finished Gold 2 in WL.
    Now have a very good team for my standards with prime Petit and Henry. Still finish in gold 2 if Ii play all the games. Maybe get odd 2 more wins but that is that.

    Same thing was last year.
    Just goes to show that if you're **** then no matter how good players you have...you're still ****

    I can always feel if the momentum (that doesnt exist ofc) is with or against me. It has nothing to do with rating, special cards etc. Its just in the game o:)

    I think slightly more wins, but the most important player is always the one holding the controller.

    I replaced Herrera, Rudiger and Rose with Vidal, Boateng and Alaba and my level of performance has stayed pretty much the same. The Bayern Trio haven’t made a difference.

    If you play full ICON and he plays bronze, every G1+ player would beat him. So it's P2W

    Depends, kinda like a few people have said, some matches things just happens where you think, WTF, whether that's for or against, sometimes average players play like superstars, sometimes superstars play like average players, but ultimately I'd say, for the average player, like me, it makes a tiny difference using top players, but as I'm the one using them, it won't change drastically

    Just like you can give some YTers a bronze team and they win D1, that's because they're good at the game, plain and simple, your players are just your tools, which may only play a part in 5 - 10% of the outcome

    Oh, just to add, I think it's only certain stats what make the difference aswell, off the top of my head, finishing/strength/aggression mainly, aside from pace which alot of players have

    Better players yes

    But don't underestimate the need for balance, I've brought in players before that are slightly different to what I'm used to and it totally throws my game off

    This. When connection is smooth you will destroy someone on your level but with delay it's a coin toss

    Overall yes, it'll get you a few more wins every weekend etc as they'll pull more off, but that's aslong as you dont start thinking " this players better so he can do more" which means you end up getting lazy & not playing properly etc.

    ADP for example can pull off magic, but if you're being lazy & not concentrating then he'll play like any other player.

    I’d agree with this I’ve just played a few games and the first 2 it just felt like I couldn’t control my team and players couldn’t move, then the next 2 everything felt good and players reacted to what I was trying to do, I’ve got a pretty stacked team

    Happens to me alot, some games they play to their stats, some days they simply don't

    Jesus is OP, but Pele is much much better. The difference is obvious. Just an example, but this applies elsewhere.
