A lot of you saw what I did so I won't bore you with the details but just check my thread history if you're not familiar... It's an interesting read lol, but since starting a new club I have done nothing but played some squad battles and traded on the companion app only at work because I've not got time to sit at home doing it would rather try and squeeze in a game or two if I'm gonna go on fifa.

Well it's taken me 4 or 5 days to trade up to this....

That's with a completely fresh club, no coin boosts to help either. Just relentless buying and realisting of whatever I found was selling well, normally due to sbc's.

I'll be honest I've had more fun with fifa this last week than I did in the last several months with that absolutely ridiculous team, I no longer feel like I must get the latest released totw player or icon. I no longer feel like I must play the game because I've spent so much money on it. To be free of the attraction to fifa points is a glorious thing and if anyone else feels like I felt............Then I strongly recommend doing something about it and not letting it get worse.

Do I think liscarding/discarding my entire club was the best solution? No, but is it one that worked for me? Yes.

Lots of you already know you don't need to put money on this game to get a great team, if I can do that in less than a week... Imagine what else is achievable.

    To be fair, this was a particulary special week, the market went full bananas lol só, in every other week(s), it would have taken longer. Good job, though. I, for one, if tried the same, would end up backfiring and losing money.i'm terrible at trading, i always end up missing the right opportunity to sell...

    I literally snipe or buy anything that's needed for sbc's sometimes just below normal going rate and sell for only 300-400 or so coins profit on most occasions. I just keep that ticking over with a full transfer list checking, keeping it topped up and relisting. The coins soon pile up, I wouldn't recommend sitting at home doing it but it's easy to keep the coins coming in at work checking your transfer list every now and then if you have a job that permits.

    Very nice, low risk trading. I used to do that with squad fitness cards, but it got extremely tedious.

    Absolutely, that's why I only do it at work lol because it is tedious.

    Amazing, I was gonna make a thread about him but couldn't be bothered with the constant posts asking me how many I'm selling.

    I did exactly this. I had 6m coins and i transferred 3m to a mate and spent 3m on packs.
    Started back off with 60k and i now have over 2.6m worth of players in my team and bpl, spfl and half of la liga league sbcs done. Ive found to be enjoying fifa a lot more knowing i built it up from nothing. Took a lot of grinding buying and selling silvers from sbc leagues.

    Hahaha, but seriously I’m starting to feel like you did now, I literally just spend the last 2 days non stop grinding to finish prime ronaldo, but now I have him I feel like I have to now play fifa and nothing else otherwise I’ve wasted my time

    That's exactly the problem, I have 84 Wilson and birthday Bolasie upfront.... They cost me zero pounds.... And I don't feel obliged to come on and play at all. Having prime Henry and ronaldinho etc was such a burden..... I'm so glad to have rid. And I now know I could easily trade up to them with no money so next year I really hope I learn my own lesson.

    Tough decision, only played about 10 games with them and so far they are pretty similar. If I had to get rid of one it would probably be kouyate because of his horrible marking stat.

    Kudos @SPAMPEBS - should shut up all the people who say you can't have a good team through trading only.

    Yeah I guess it depends if you have the time, patience and knowledge to do it.

    I have nothing against pay to win though, I've done it many times. But it needs to stop for me.
