    10-4 to 11-7 I just can’t beat people who are playing drop back when the gameplay is this bad. Not sure what I need to change when the gameplay is like this

    I've found only way to beat these type of players especially in bad gameplay is to shoot from distance.....passing is so random at the best of times and even worse in bad gameplay making it almost impossible to break teams down

    3-2 to 7-2 to 10-8 and now on 14-8. Unsure whether to go for 17 or just enjoy a chilled out Sunday. Great comeback @Davvebingan

    Maybe a target man approach, get the ball wide and cross, it's also effective when teams defend so deep

    So I have just built this and will likely give it a whirl this evening for a few games.

    However I've just sold a load of my investments and am now sitting on 2.9M coins.

    Was looking at going all in on one card, thinking Carniball Neymar, Prime Eusebio or Prime Cruyff....thoughts?? I also have PIM Seedorf, prime Best, prime Nedved, prime Butra and baby R9 on the bench

    Played two drafts, won both of them with very inferior teams than any of the 8 I played against.

    Really great fun trying to defend PIM Gullit and TOTY CR7 with 78 rated CB and an 82 GK behind him. :joy:

    Got no player over 82 from the packs:
    1st: 2x premium gold players pack, 2x 5k pack
    2nd: Mega pack, rare gold pack, premium gold players pack

    Dont think I got the 30k back.

    I wanted to test the best TOTY and PIM player, except Modric got none of the ones I wanted.

    Key players from these drafts:
    PIM Giggs - terrible, so so terrible
    87 Rivaldo - another terrible player
    Prime Carlos - not bad, but nowhere near good enough and certainly not worth it
    TOTY Modric - absolutely beatiful man, so so good, need to try him outside of draft
    Scream Busquets - great CDM, carried me in both drafts
    95 RW Messi - star of the first draft, smooth on the ball and insanely fast, kinda want to try him instead of Mbappe
    PIM Litmanen - pretty decent player, but nowhere near Elite
    Scream Diego Costa - not bad, terrible finishing until the final, then he scored 7 in the final

    Not having a lot of time this WE is a blessing/curse situation as i call it quits at 11-2. Likely would have been a struggle from here on out, but getting to 20 once is a kind of bucket list thing and would have at least had a shot i guess.

    Very happy that i did most of the damage with one of my alternate teams, 2-1 with the main and 9-1 with my 2nd squad (played till loosing then would switch).

    You need to get better at finishing obviously......I'm just kidding, that sucks :/ I had a game just now in rivals where I scored that goal with Cruyff, I was 3-0 up 20 minutes in and while I was still dominating the game, he managed to take me to a 4-3 win -_- super frustrating to play
  • Finished on 17-9, no more time to play. Due to limited time, didn't do individual game update here and just tracked players stats on a separate file.

    Goals / Assists
    UEL Perisic : 9/5
    89 Socrates : 7/16
    NIF Bale : 20/6
    92 Suarez : 18/14
    90 Veron : 3/9
    86 Gullit : 1/2
    NIF Ramos : 2/0
    91 Chiellini : 0/1

    Bale was excellent from the RW this week, missed a lot of easy chances but still scored 20. Suarez was terrific too as usual, will be upgrading to his 93 IF soon.

    9-5 became 14-6 and I then lost all motivation to play on, gameplay was shocking, even if it did go my way more than not it was no fun at all.

    Couldn't find the motivation this weekend so I skipped. Icon situation is killing me.

    I havent got the coins to do a Socrates / Lothar but I do have plenty of untradeable fodder icons (Keane / Baresi / Base dinho / Nedved etc). Very much looking forward to the big ones during fut birthday requireing 1 moment + 1 icon + endless 87-89s squads... Last year we got R9 this week ffs.

    Going on vacation again tomorrow to ski. EA better release something decent while im away (and im not takling about 1million pim Best upgrade) if im to start playing again before 20

    It was a HORRIFIC WL....just read some reviews here...

    E$ are fxxing everyone over and releasing the Pims with many high rated teams and not 2 or more icons....Disgrace seriously.... I have 3 icon fodders as well but did manage to do Socrates

    Above is the reason why i bought 90 Gullit, liquidating my club more or less :smiley: Enjoy skiing and hope that when youre back we have all thebig prime(r)s

    Did read a few. Glad I skipped mate :D I totally agree that EA are simply ******* everyone over. Truly a disgrace.

    Few of my friends are quite good at the game / hardcore ultimate team players. 2/4 has quit the game due to the pim circus. 3/4 if I include myself...

    How is Socrates compared to your other endgame players :P ?

    Would be bitter sweet for me cos it won't be as good as toty Messi but would never leave a red Messi rot in my club regardless, though would allow me to trade toty Messi for toty neymar/mbappe maybe

    89 Mata or 87 Suso? Currently have a Prem side and he looks a lovely card. Could always pick up IF Suso up another time I guess right?
