    What does your (real life) team XI look like in FUT?

  • Was planning on a starter team all along with Martinez and Almiron and then ended up packing IF BWP in my loyalty packs. I don't usually use a 1 league team, but how does this look for a starter?

    Could use dynamic tactics if the formation doesn't work out for me and I reckon Schweinsteiger will be a good way of testing if what everyone seems to be saying about pace being unimportant in central areas is true. Not sure on Ciman, considering one of the high rated Silvers or even Miles Robinson as he was fun to use in my FIFA 18 Atlanta CM.

    MLS Goalkeepers and fullbacks really are trash unfortunately.

    Looks good! Take a look at Waston as an option for Ciman. He’s pretty slow but he’s physically dominant (and 6’5”). I’ve found that in 3atb the centeal CB doesnt have to be super fast.

    Also could consider Zlatan or Giovinco for CAM

    I’d go with Waston ahead of Ciman or even Kashia. I’d also change Taider for Ossie Alonso. Need someone to cover for Schweinsteiger’s lack of legs
  • Thanks guys, knew I had used Waston before, was a great Bronze card back when they still had a place in the game:

    He’s much much better now :)

    He’s so strong, aggressive, and tall that I think he kinda breaks the games foul mechanics (at least in 18). I would routinely smashed players to the ground with Waston and walk away without a call. No way some of those tackles wouldn’t be fouls irl lol

    No one will ever measure up to Andy Iro from FIFA 12, one of my all-time favourite CB's across all FIFA's, he was only in packs for a few months. I doubt any of you would actually remember him from his time at Toronto, guy was clearly a genetic freak but wasn't cut out for the professional game.

    Dribbling is so delayed. Passing is so delayed. All they had to do was just slow down the game speed, not make it to where I turn and my guy takes an hour to do so. Glad I played the trial to save my 60 bucks. Won't be joining you guys this year. God this game is straight trash.

    Does LAFC Ciman exist? I haven't seen any on PS4 on the web app. I think it's the same thing with Van Damme last year. One less gold CB for us to use.

    I think when you have this mentality about the game and the franchise as a whole now, its time to hang up the virtual boots.

    Playing the full game, I can say I am incredibly happy playing the game and having a lot of fun. But Ill wait a month to figure out what the end result will end up being

    Though the same thing. Not a single one in the market as of yet

    I've bought every one since 12. Played ultimate team since then. Skipping this year cause I know the inevitable will happen. Disappointed.
  • Ibra is amazing. Shoot and score. Just don’t sprint with him and his ball control combined with his strength is dirty

    Right so after a handful of games I’m gonna run through who are good and bad basically. Ones I’ve left out are neither here or there, just middle of the road do a job

    Goat
    Waston
    Vela
    Giovinco

    Good
    Miggy
    Ossie
    Opara
    Bradley
    Josef
    Sagna
    Sane
    Rooney (good-ish)

    Trash
    Maxi Moralez (Like Gio...without the skill)
    Katai (68 pace LM...)
    Quintero (Couldn’t finish his dinner or pass wind)
    Schwein (has no legs)
    Roman Torres (a tank that can’t tackle)

    Same. Can’t wait to try him out. What chem style do you think you’re gonna give him?
    Slowly trading to get IF Gerso

    So I need your opinion guys. Seriously considering getting FIFA 19 for the Nintendo switch instead of the Xbox. Good? Bad? Am I a lunatic?

    Yea I read some of the reviews from FIFA 18 and apparently at least FUT wise it’s not good. Doesn’t have the full FUT features that Xbox and PS have. Pulling out now

    Niiieeece @Antparry92 . I forget how good Gio is early in the game esp. nice to hear Waston is still beastly.

    Is Sagna’s low stamina and speed a problem?
  • For what it’s worth not really impressed at all with Gerso. On the other hand BWP is killing it for me. He’s very much a poacher, but with engine he actually feels a bit nimble. His heading is also really good when he gets his head on the ball

    IF Zimmerman? Brace and a clean sheet so far (19 pts and counting in fantasy. Yes, I have him).

    Would be a very tasty card, and help ease the loss of Ciman this year.

    Gooch with two goals. Need that information just to look at. Won't be useable but will make his tots better.
  • BWP just got the softest yellow card ever and is gonna miss the game against Atlanta next week cause of it. Unless he pulled some Jacki Moon from semi-pro stuff idk how what he did was a yellow
