Just want to start by saying I don't intend to be bitchy or whiny in this post it's literally how I feel about the game. I love Fifa and football in general and like you I want the best out of it!
For me... Fifa has lost all its mojo. There is nothing fun to do anymore on the game. Champs is all well and good but it's a lot of effort and dedication for little coins at this stage in the game, unless you are able to finish Gold 1+. Even if you did finish around there the pack weight is unbelievably shocking. I haven't packed a single player worth 100k+ this year Which to me is outrageous given the amount of packs I open(from sbcs etc) Squad battles is boring, extremely time consuming and under rewarding. The Sbc's suck, ratings refresh is boring and unless you own one of the to be upgraded players fairly pointless. I can't remember the last time I was excited to log on and play Fifa, probably the futmas promo. Even though it was leaked it was still fun to complete the cards and they looked awesome: even the Carrol and pirlo cards were enjoyable to do and receive and best of all costed little to no coins. Anyway, I know a lot of people feel the same way as me and would love to hear your opinion. I know the solution to this would be to just stop playing Fifa altogether, but there's no other alternative to this game, and I wouldn't make the switch to pes. I love football and this game has been a part of my life since I was about 8 years old!
