    Just to confirm, in the squad battles objective, you can use icons for your two gold players.

    Special silvers & bronze players (if you have any) are also fine.

    Interesting, I didn’t think icons would count as gold players, have to make a couple of adjustments now!

    Did you try subs? Could you start with two icons as your golds then sub three more golds on immediately.

    Also are we expecting a futswap player to be within SB next week? Like silver 3 or whatever it usually is, think I’ll leave this objective until Monday and do it through the week (during Love Island....) and kill two birds with a single futswap stone.

    Competed the French one, 9 goals in 1 game thanks to exchanges with my opponent then scored with Griezmann in the next game against someone who wasn’t doing it, all this for Nakata or a goalkeeper, can’t wait!

    I only subbed on silver players, so can't say for sure, but I doubt you'd get away with more.

    Just to add, my second gold was a MOTM card so essentially all specials are fine provided you meet the breakdown of golds/silvers/bronzes.

    2nd Rivals game, my first corner. TOTW Ribery is kicking. Goal! My 2nd corner, shortly after the 1st. Lucas Hernandes is kicking. Goal!

    Why can't it always go so easily? :joy:

    The luck is on your side, I'm struggling away despite filling the team full of French lol.

    How do you know if a special card is silver or gold?

    Would Ampadu (bronze base card) and Mings (silver base card) scream cards be classed as bronze and silver?

    You're over thinking this in all honesty mate. I used 2 bronze cbs and a bronze keeper, silver Colombians around, Gullit/Lozano up top. It's only professional level so a walk in the park.

    It was going very well in that game. So well that I was leading 4:0 after 80th minute so I let my opponent get that Spanish defender assist (I just moved my GK far far away) as I saw he moved his 2 defenders up front.

  • Remember:
    1) You can start with 9 silvers & 2 Icons, and then just sub on 3 bronzes late in the match - you don’t have to start with the 3 bronzes. (I’ve had a Brazilian silver team for a few months now, that I roll out whenever there’s a silver objective)
    2) Get those crosses in, to do the aerial assist weekly objective at the same time (just need one headed goal and to win by 2)
    3) You’re a Womble (old cultural reference unlikely to be understood by most on the forum...)

    Haha, you are right. First two games I only played one gold (Aguero) with a bronze 48 keeper and won 10-2 and 4-0. Third game i played two golds (Aubameyang and Salah) and won 5-0. Didn’t play any special cards and it was very easy - also got the headed goal objective in the same 3 games. I was a bit lucky that I the teams I played were all rated very low!

    @Vaporduff777 I haven’t decided yet! They made the packs untradable so maybe the mid icon pack?

    Fair enough hopefully you can pack r9 😬. Rashford fits my team so I hope he’s worth the wait.

    He was. Just got him and cashed him in for Boateng.
  • Do 'special' players count as gold in this objective?

    I'm. Using the Tots Tavernier but don't know if I should just use a basic gold card instead.

    Anyone know if this is possible.. do gold tots or red cards count?

    Need one more to grab Meunièr who seems the logical choice to go with my untradable Silva and Marquinhos, but never used any of his cards to date. Does his lack of agility affect him much? He’s a lovely height for a full back, but having a nagging doubt that as soon as I pull the trigger they rerelease the Dani Alves SBC

    No offence mate but if you’re already got 2 gold players on the pitch and the requirements say 2 gold players why would you even take the risk of bringing more golds on?

    I know sometimes there’s ways of getting around these requirements that EA haven’t stopped us from exploiting but if it says 2 golds and you bring 3 extra golds on you’re just asking for trouble.

    For anyone else who hasn’t done this yet

    Start the game with 2 golds (these can be informs, icons etc) start with 6 silvers and 3 bronze. It doesn’t matter who you put on the bench, but just don’t bring anyone on! Wait until you have easy opponents, then make sure you play against them on professional, and you will complete the objective within three games presuming you win!

    You can only have 2 golds MAX. You can't use 2 in your starting 11 and then use a further 2 from your subs.
