    Also while I do get a lot of rage quits (10ish id say) I also get a lot of people quitting on me as soon as the game begins or at 0-0, which means I go into 32-35 games per weekend.

    Congrats again, even more impressive considering when you accomplished it.

    How did you set up?

    Start the games in 352, switch to 4231 after i'm up by 1 or 2 (dont switch at all if the opponent isnt good or is not exploting my wings). You basically have to set out to control how the game develops.

    Most important advice I can give generally is,

    Always try to score first, take the game to the opponent at the beginning, be proactive. Then go from there. The player that scores first is usuallly in control of how the game develops.

    Don't be afraid to change formations or approach, sometimes in 352 I feel im getting overrun or outplayed, cant get out of my half or cant create good chances, I switch to 4231 even if I'm down or it's 0-0, despite being a more defensive formation, catching people off guard is important. Usually by the 20 minute mark players are settled into the game and have picked up your playstyle patterns, changing the formation suddenly crushes that.

    Control the game, as soon as you take the lead. Take charge of whats going and what's going to happen, this doesn't mean taking the ball and keeping it. You can control a game while not having possession (this is something people struggle to understand).

    Don't panic, don't overuse the same plays over and over, if you cross a lot its easy to defend, try other avenues of attacking. If you don't cross, then cross. If you don't take longshots, then take them. If you take loads of longshots then try to work the ball into the box. If it doesn't work, switch it up. Don't stay in a comfort zone.

    Be focused, a game can be turned on its head quite easily this year, it doesnt matter if you're far superior to the opponent. Don't be complacent. A bad rebound or animation is all it takes. When I'm up in games my objective becomes keeping a cleansheet, defense wins you titles so you have to be secure at the back. Goals will come.

    Above all, be calm. It's just a game.



    To add to that, there was only 1 game all weekend where I conceded first, and it was one of the hardest 2. (the one where I won 4-3).

    Comebacks are not healthy, try to avoid being in a losing position as much as you can.

    Packed TOTS Ederson but have TOTY De Gea in goal, Ederson is 2 inches smaller but would free up 670-700k if I sell him, should I do it to free uip the coins or is Ederson not on De Geas level?

    If not Ederson will just go into an sbc.

    Wondering if to Sell DDG, my cam & downgrade my cb & get 89 Eusebio... or if to just sell DDG & my cam & get CR7.

    89 Eusebio is immense, depends on what sort of downgrade you have to do to your defence.

    Looking back at this weekend, I should have known better not to do Robben and MVB ffs
    Gone completely away from the meta, using them 2 in a 352 :expressionless: with **** Sissoko
    Robben isn’t as bad, but my god I couldn’t use MVB

    Sell fs de ligt for 88 VVD for a couple of days (basically just this WL) to fund eusebio.... and cr7 leaves him, ibra and best all on 7-8 chem.

    If you haven't used Eusebio defo get Eusebio, as it's fun to try out different players, and he's the best Icon striker IMO.

    Never used Ronaldo in any fifa before either, that's why it's tough haha. Ronaldo is more meta & would prob help me win those 50/50 games... but I assume Eusebio is also amazing... though Best starts at striker due to being the only RF/LF card I have in game... but can switch him if Eusebio is that much better at st than cam.

    Quite good. Quick and nimble with good distribution. Jumping prob the one big advantage Ramos has on him.

    Anyone know if EA changed something server wise last weekend?

    Had pretty solid gameplay for a few days now, next to no delay or lag etc.

    Either something’s been changed or player numbers are down astronomically.

    No changes I think.

    Strange... my gameplay has been consistently poor for a while now but all of a sudden everything feels as you’d hope for with no delay issues whatsoever.

    Maybe you cat stopped playing with the internet cables? :joy:

    :joy:

    I’ll never forget that.

    She’s still not been forgiven :smiley:
