Now that I have used some decently expensive teams for at least I want to see what the difference is in using 50k ish league teams or hybrids. Maybe some fun cheap teams or just go through the leagues each weekend and see if the results differ. Ideally I will try a new team every weekend, a team "identity" voted on by the forum and help choosing players from the selected identity. Would love some involvement from the community here to make it more fun as I got through. I am already tired of using the same teams and think it will be fun trying my favorite players from the past and some of you alls favorite players. I have finished Gold 1, Gold 2, and Gold 3. Will be fun to see if using a "lesser" team will make me slide to silver or if I can ever push into elite. If it works out eventually with the rewards and coins stacking up we can go to more expensive or random teams. First vote will be about the teams Identity for this upcoming weekend. Keep in mind I have only played 41212(2), 4231, and 4312 so will probably build the team around that but can always use a game plan to fit certain players in. Please select what team you would like to see first. If hybrid wins I will ask for you all to submit a team and we can vote on which one to pick.

I will post the team I use each week and their stats for the weekend at the end of each competition.


******* Team will cost 50-75k each of the first few weeks to see where the value and fun are.


WEEK 1
Teams are finished. I was not planning on doing two but also did not realize squad fitness cards were going for 1.5k+. I figured spending 45k just on fitness over the weekend would be pointless with lesser teams so went ahead and made two to save the coin and fit in some more recommendations. A few players are ones I have loved in the past Jovetic, Guarin, Draxler, Arias, etc and a few are just good values, links, or looked like awesome budget cards ie. Golovin. I hope most are pleased with them even if they aren't the most creative. I did buy one inform, one scream, and many UCL cards because I do not believe that takes away from the spirit of the idea and I hate non rares. I only bought the blues when it was a super good value. I will post this in the OP as well as a spoiler for anyway that wants to go back and look at any time. I kept the formations the same because I did not want to be going forth between two different ones every other game in champions.

    If you’re ready to use dynamic tactics to change formation IF Nakajima is a very fun player to use, maybe as Lcam, Lst or cam. I use him as Lf in 4321 but he could fit in other places as well. This is my Liga Nos fitness team I like it, fernades and Nakajima is my favourites

    Looks decent. Not loving the 6 check RCM though. Will keep this in mind if hybrid wins.

    I am intrigued by marega from Liga nos, looks like he could be a beast after a couple of IFS.
  • Serie A
    This is what I've been doing on fifa 19 now that they've taken away most of the need to build different teams. I'm doing it a month at a time though for the top 5 leagues and a 1 nation team.I play a full weekend league at the end of the month. Started with Calcio A, then Ligue 1, now I'm onto the Bundesliga. Be interesting seeing how you get on. Good luck

    Marega is a beast already all you need is a chem style that boosts ball control

    It’s very fun to play with, Fernandes and Nakajima scores fitness shots for fun and most of the team can dribble.

    Finished Week 1 17-11. I do not know if I was just luck or what but it seemed like I only played 2-3 stacked teams. Overall both teams performed well and both got 14 games. The team with Bakambu, Paulinho, etc were by far the better team.

    Player stats here

    Team 1
    Arias - 0
    Ruben Dias - 0
    Paulista - 2g
    Ribeiro - 0
    Pereira - 2a
    Paulinho - 16g 8a
    Guarin - 2g 6a
    Talisca -6g 2a
    Bakambu - 13g 3a
    Muriel - 9g 10a

    Team 2
    De Siglio - 1a
    Rudiger - 0
    Ampadu - 0
    Schulz - 1a
    Can - 5g 4a
    Weigl - 0
    Golovin - 1g 10a
    Draxler - 10g 3a
    Werner - 11g 11a
    Jovetic - 4g 5a


    Stars

    Paulinho - By far the best player this weekend. Almost makes me want to fit him into every team I make in the future. One of the best players I have used this year on any budget.

    Bakambu - I knew he would be great, really enjoyed his card last year. Great all around striker, strength and speed for days.

    Paulista - Rock in defense, scored the odd header too.

    Neto - Probably best at that rating I have used for a GK. Didnt have one moment I thought negatively about him.

    Can - Great CM, scored a goal or two but his defense and tracking back are what got him on this list.

    Golovin - Was not a goal threat but seemed to always pick out a pass and lead the break quite often.

    Werner - Hes fast and clinical

    Weigl - Didnt have an assist or goal but man he was a rock. Only CDM I have used this year that sits back no matter what.

    Duds

    Talisca/Draxler - Both would have their moments and put up decent stats but being dead by half time ruined them for me.

    Jovetic - Man went missing 90% of the time.

    Guarin - Massive let down. Stamina is too low and outside of his shot power offers little else.

    Kepa - By far the worst GK I have used this year.


    Here are some goals and a compilation from the weekend. Nothing spectacular by any means, I was just bored and thought I would throw it together.

    Paulinho with 16 goals :hushed:

    Yeah he was unreal. Driven shots, finesse, headers. Was everywhere. Played Cam in for Draxler after about the 70th minute in the last half of the game

    I feel you. As much as I thought better players matter this weekend, small sample size I know, showed me I don't need 1.5 mill teams to get the same record. With my good teams I was always Gold 1/2 as well.

    I think ability does have a major effect.
    People bang on about skill level being nullified by the games randomness, but the best players always get the most wins, the rest of us always get the middle tier or the bottom scale of things.
    If the game was truly as random as people make out and the skill gap was nothing, then for 1 WL I would fluke enough wins to get Elite and Eddieficio might only get Gold.
