Well, as the topic says, how will you play your game?
From what we all know, the beta sucked and I'm not going to adress this issue here. I want to know your thoughts and goals you have with the game.
I'm looking back to the start of fifa 18 with fresh attitude and excitement. What I really enjoy with the starts is that basically everyone has **** players and have to grind with players you usually would not choose. (for those who ain't pay-to-win).
It's sad to see that 90% of all the players are never or very rarely used and this is a perfect time to explore and find common/low rare gold player gems.
To start of this journey I will not pay more than just the game itself. No fifa points no matter what stage of the game.
Last year I began my trading through the companion app, before we could play the game itself. Managed to get myself Alejandro Gomez from Atalanta for 15k-ish. By the release of the game, his value was around 40k. (PC) This was my absolute fave card in the early stages, he was sooo fun to use.
This year I feel like something similar. Probably Calcio A hybrid with EPL or Bundesliga if possible. Going to aim for a strong midfielder, winger OR striker and work from there.
What I don't want, is to fall for the meta game. I don't want to play with META way. I want to do it my way and find MY formation. Through the last three fifa games I've been struggling a lot to find a proper formation where not even the meta formations worked for me - this caused me lots of stress since it didn't work out for me. Obviously you want to win your games, but I want that feeling where the formation feels nice, even though I might lose my games (more practice needed prolly).
As far as it goes for fifa 18, I enjoyed doing the SBC. I got some good pulls from it and it add some new to the game itself where you got rewarded with packs. Even though the pack weight was horrible I managed to get decent rewards and I'll continue doing so. Hopefully I'll pack someone good and trade him/use him.
Fifa 18 was the start of Squad battles which in theory sounded great, but in-game, horrible (for me atleast). This year there is something else and tbf, I do not really know what it is, nor what to expect. Hopefully it's better and more sufficient than squad battles.
This is how my starter-kit looks like and I'm going to roll with it as long as I can. I'm interested in what you guys think and what you will make out of it. Perhaps I get new ideas from ya'll
