Firstly I apologise for the use of the term meta, just couldn’t think of another way of putting it.

So since the patch there’s been a whole lot of debate - some like it some hate it. But the most previlant issue for a lot seems to be that it’s further reduced skill gap - something I don’t believe.

I want the worst players mechanics wise for each position - but with a twist.. I want high rated players.

So the rules:

Any formation
No chemistry restrictions - go as low as you want
No players below 85

Oh - I will not be changing formation in game for chem purposes - that’s a real no no for me!

The aim is to put me at the biggest disadvantage possible. Low rated players may mean I come up against lower rated squads and those relatively new to the game. So, either give me a full team or suggest players for each position and I’ll build it.

Do your worst!

    I’d say it’s kept the skill gap the same because if you have icons and a high rated team f defends it all for you, also intercepts every god damn pass

    Now I don’t concede many but find it a struggle to score past man mountain van dijk who just reads everything, especially now everyone is parking the bus

    Van Dijk is my worst nightmare. Especially when he’s paired with Davison Sanchez. Feels like you’re playing against 4 defenders cos of their size. Any player suggestions for my team??

    It sort of defeats the object really. I want a team that on paper should be competitive but because of the idea of players being meta (🤮) won’t work in game. I’m thinking the Busquets of this world.

    I think La Liga is the best for this, unless you go for the very best I always find it to be “non-meta” players like Kroos, busquets, Koke etc

    In that case


    Alisson

    Walker
    VVD
    Azpi
    Robertson

    Firmino
    Fernandinho
    Mhki

    Mahrez
    Jesus
    Sane

    The thing is, I'm saying the best FIFA I've played using a non meta team. It's just fun to use.

    My favourite players in my current squad are FUTMAS Matuidi and FUTMAS Santi. Rttf Perisic at ST is so good, and Allan.

    Mmm, would loved Futmas Santi. I’m probably going to use his IF.

    Has to be Godin and Pique at the back.

    I've not tried his IF. But his FUTMAS is so good on the ball I can play him wide, upfront, central cam etc.

    I'm not sure if UEL Tah is considered meta, but he's crazy.

    mandzukic is too good tho.

    you need to have a team of poor work rates and pace and high passing abilities.

    kimmich is a good start

    then two slow cbs, pique comes to mind.

    slow mids like kroos

    and a very non pace front line, but one that also can't dominate in the air. Muller would be a good one to have here.

    442

    right side is hummels, kimmich, javi martinez, robben, muller

    left side can be filipe luis, pique, kroos, vitolo/koke, and maybe michy bats

    I'm not sure what you want to do for your keeper ???

    sounds fun tho.

    I like it! Would you play in a 442? Never used 442! I’m gonna be honest if I went with that option I’m using Ter Stegen because I have him Untradable.

    I don't know it seems like a pretty good formation for this sort of thing.

    I don't play 442 but since that's the basic formation I'd go with that.

    The one thing I thought of is that Busquest needs to be in the team though.

    Maybe you could do 4141 with Busquets in for michy, putting busquets at cdm? I don't know with him and javi martinez in the same side you're basically playing with 2 cdms and one striker.

    I’m liking a bit of Higuain. I’ve never seen him used this year. It’s amazing how many coins you can use building rubbish 😂

    Santo's stamina really lets him down. I want to start the FUTMAS one but he wouldn't last a half.

    So here’s an early concept I’m looking at. What are people’s thoughts? Anyone stand out as too good? Anyone I’ve obviously missed out on?
