How to have fun again?

I've been grinding in WL last month to get to gold 2 (im not 40 games/weekend guy). I got my rewards, I like that, but now what? I've been playing WL again this weekend, im 7-0 wins-losses, but every game is just one big frustration. There is no fun for me in playing the same style (braindead sprint-throughball through the middle, and Ai defense) over and over again vs overpowered teams.

I decided to stop playing WL for now, and just made a fun Colombian team, with silvers, bronzes and my red reward players Muriel and Arias. Also I made a fun German team, with a 76 red, Younes, futmas gnabry, and all silvers all over the place.
I played Squad Battles, legendary, and I actually enjoyed playing! It was fun, no sweatfeast, not too easy, I had to try my best to win the games.

SB will probably become boring, but I'm looking for something to make it fun again. A road to XX goals with someone, or themes-teams? I dunno, maybe you guys have a good idea?

The game is dead online for me, I have Icons etc, I cant bother about rewards anymore, I'm just looking to have fun playing.

    Play Fortnite.

    In all seriousness though you are already doing the right thing... make some fun teams, play with players you might not otherwise use, try some different game modes, do The Journey if you haven't.... etc...

    Wait for a player you like irl or a in form that interests you and build a team around them when the time comes.

    Yeah another game is a possibility too. But I'm only playing FIFA for years. I am actually tempted to try PES...
    But FIFA is my game, I love FUT as a mode, it's brilliant, it's just too bad there are so many flaws.

    Btw, I am a first owner only player since the beginning, to make it more interesting as I learned from boredom of other fifa's haha.

    I am doing bronze pack method at the moment. I'm making money from doing it, and I'm upgrading useless bronzes into silvers (bronze upgrades). Lots of fun silvers are in my club, I guess I just continue to try out players/teams.

    I also like the idea of forum tournament. Maybe I will set up one myself, with restrictions like only silvers, or only trash league players. Something like that. Fun idea!

    I also have a red Will Grigg sitting around, he's looking for a fun team to use, and maybe some road to 100 goals i dunno.

    This.

    I have actually enjoyed the last days of FIFA. Playing 4411 with Dinho as CF. Top formation and fun formation. I am trying out plenty of cheap informs, and just having a good time.

    I normally play SB, for the first time I think offline games are ok. The format is a superb addition for me. Can pause, and no stress. I also play the dko, and divisions. The latter is not that enjoyable as 1. div is a grind. Anyway.. build a team that gives you joy, and drop the meta ❤️❤️❤️❤️.

    And full cred to the guys playing WL every week. I want to puke after 3 games, that grind is not for me.

    Exactly! I don't have a meta team, my current team is strong but personal taste (vd Sar, red Arias, SIF de Ligt, futmas VvD, red Zeegelaar - Rijkaard, Bergkamp, futmas Wijnaldum - Promes, MVC, Overmars). But I don't like playing online, not in WL and I'm also in online D1 so wont try out my silvers there haha.

    I'm gonna continue SB for a bit with fun teams until I get better ideas. Thanks for input! And im sure Ronaldinho is a dream to play with!

    Haha! I have most of your players in my team now. SIF De Ligt, SIF Arias and IF Zeegelar is all class players.

    Win games. It’s not fun if you’re not winning imo.

    Just do everything you can to win. Be full on sweat, pace all over the pitch and exploit all those weaknesses in the game.

    I find playing weekend league sporadically quite enjoyable tbh. 15-20 games per weekend is easy to do and I usually win most of my games up until that point

    Love it how people keep saying to go outside ... SMH

    The other game is obviously an option - kid and I spent way too many hours on Civ VI this weekend! Rise and Fall DLC was a nice addition too.

    But, you're on the FIFA forum so I guess you're actually asking about this game and not wanting life lessons.

    For me the one big change would be formation. Whenever I'm not having too much fun, I build 3 atb teams. This FIFA it just so happened that was back in late Nov/early Dec - still using them :smiley:

    Try hybrid it up - minimum 3 leagues for instance - using an Icon or 2 (not much more than that) to help with the hybrid. Also, I try ensure that it's still 100 chem team, which means 3 x 7-chem players max. So, RB/LB's at RM/LM (Alex Sandro, Florenzi) or CDM at CB (Furmas Fabinho) makes it more interesting.

    Yeah that could be nice, 3 atb is something I have yet to try out this fifa!

    And yes, I do go outside, I have a life. I don't play other games then fifa because Im not a 24/7 gamer at all.

    And I think im gonna save for one big one. Dinho should be great yes. Ronaldo I havent used yet (any of the two). Could be fun to work towards something yes.
