Weekend League is profitable if you finish...

With average pack luck, subtracting cost of 1 squad fitness per match (app 44k atm for 40 games), and time spent playing ((time =x) time is in fact valuable) what is the level you would need to finish for it to be consistently profitable?

    Overall you’re more likely to get something good finishing top 100 regularly but as @EddieFicio will attest to, it’s not guaranteed :#

    I feel I honestly can't get better than gold 1, tried it all. So that being said my best gold one pull has been Buffon. I average about 60k profit for 40 games. My best red card is an 86 Jonas. I feel you need at least Elite 3 to make profit consistently in WL. The worst price of the IF pack is like 60k plus coin boosts and the 100k discarding at about 20k you stand to clear 150k profit a week.

    Elite 150k profit - 44k SF = 110k per week (worth it to me)

    Gold 1 40k discards + 50k coins - 44k SF = 54k profit (kinda not seeming worth it)

    Long story longer Gold 1 is almost not even profit. Forget not making your coins back on draft how about making coins in gold 1 FFS.

    @AlexSolm why do you feel Gold 1 is enough for profit? Not having a dig just curious.

    Pack luck is random.

    There was one week I finished Gold 1 and scraped 75k and my mate who is hopeless at the game made 600k off Silver 1.

    Right I know it is but there are averages. I average 44k profit for 40 games. Pretty bleak mate.

    I know it's bleak. How the rewards system hasn't changed in nearly 2 years is a joke.

    Over a season with average luck, silver 1 isn’t going to do much

    60k from an average IF pack is probably something @M98H dreams about lol.

    The average is way closer to 45k I guess.

    Only way I’d play all 40 these days is if I were able to get top 100 as my time is more valuable than the small profit I’m likely to make from gold 1 or elite 3 etc.

    You're guaranteed to make more than the cost to participate (fitness and contracts).

    100k packs give you a small chance of pulling something great occasionally (I pulled Gullit when he was going for 4M).

    To get there you have to face at least a couple of good players so you get a chance to improve.

    Good enough for elite monthly rewards.

    You raise a good point about squad fitnesses that i never really considered. Think mainly because i bought so many for so cheap when game came out that ive yet to buy anymore lol I am though getting low on these.

    To answer the main point. Consistently it got to be top 100 but i have had some very good elite packs this year.

    This.

    Also for anything less than a top 100 push I would never use a squad fitness every game so make that 22k for fitness instead of 44.

    But yes it's never really worth the time.

    Draft is by far more profitable if you're good enough. I just pretend WL doesn't exist. Much healthier and it's more fun playing with / against more random teams

    At the state of the game, to me grinding the 40 games isn't worth at all, that's why I stopped.
    If you really still like weekend league (who does anyway?), I'd say any rank below Elite is not worth the stress and the screwed weekends.

    For me tbh even if i could get top100 it would still be not worth it coin wise. I can make more than any top 100 player if i trade from friday-monday. Weekend league is ok to gain some profit but its not worth the hassle.

    Game is pretty pointless to play for me at the moment except to play against friends.

    Meh, I think most people got a spare 8-10 hours over 3 days, just depends on if you want to dedicate it to this game :D

    The coins barely matter, the bragging rights and confirmation of own skilllevel do. Not like Pugz really needs the coins either :trollface:
