    U want a 40k competitive meta? Or a 40k hipster, but useable squad?
    Looks okayish otherwise

    Yeah, FIFA16 was year when everyone started using EPL in FUT and FIFA17 no one knew what those weird letter combinations stood for, except META. The rest is history. I'm out while I still have little bit of self esteem left.

    Never really understood why it was such a thing.. was it for the challenge of it? Or are there just a lot of people playing FIFA with autism?

    Looks solid. If you're looking to improve it in the future as you earn coins maybe you can get Hazard LM, IF Alonso LB, Umtiti LCB and Ter Stegen in goal.

    Soooo at the risk of being ridiculed, what is NLW?

    No Links Wasted

    So each and every player has just the right amount of links to get full chem - no more, no less. Take a look at the team and you'll see what I mean.

    For example, Carrasco has a red link, a green link and a yellow link. If you turned that red link into a yellow link, he would still be on full chem but that link would be "wasted" because he does not need it to be on full chem.

    Damn, I didn't even realise NLW was still a thing!

    Takes me back to the good old days of my many squad series' on Futhead, back in the FIFA 14/15 days. I really enjoyed building a new squad most days, it was always great to see someone comment about how they really got along with the squad in-game.

    Adding to the post above by @Mini_Miudo , a good way to visualise NLW is by counting the number of links a player has. NLW is all about making sure the number of players someone links to is equal to the sum of their chemistry links, where
    - Green links are worth 2
    - Orange links are worth 1
    - Red links are worth 0
    (also note a perfect link - same nation, same club - is worth 3 as well)

    If a player links to 3 other players, then they'll need any combination of the above links to equal exactly 3 (no more, no less).

    Oh yeah, and on the squad, you can't really do much better for the price. Not sure about the formation but you'll have a tough time getting James and Pogba on full chem (with NLW) in any other formation

    Think I've done it 5k over budget.

    Cheers mate, that is clever, but Sanchez at RCM in a false nine would fail me too often due to poor shooting
    If only Guarin was still at Inter!

    Cheers. Formation isn't an issue, I can perform well with it

    Awesome that you're still fighting the good fight.

    Here is mine, however it feels like cheating with the introduction of legends...

    Haha, bit of both probably.

    I started doing it for the challenge as making hybrids was easier.

    It was more common before WL came in and everyone got more desperate to win.

    Once you get into it, it's properly addictive and really hard to go back. I've made a few teams this year that aren't NLW, but it still slightly bugs me. If there's an option for NLW with worse players I'll probably still take it!

    I also insist on symmetrical card colours. If I have an IF right wing, the left wing also needs upgrading!
