Quick question, is it actually fun to pay literally 1000s of £s for an insane team? I mean its basically playing the game on easy mode as the majority of people you get matched up against will have average teams at around 86-87 overall rating. I just dont see how that could be fun. Dont you want to be challenged???

    I think that’s some people’s “Ultimate Team”...

    Yeah this. I have about a 14 million coin team, nothing insane but pretty stacked and I have fun. :)

    Yeah how does that work? I think it's near impossible to have a great team without spending a cent.

    Fairly easy mate, I don't really put any effort in and I'm at 10 mil+ from just stocking up maybe once a week and hitting relist.

    There is no fun beating a lesser team...either we are on par or slightly better. I don't know how people with mega teams prefer stumping on lesser teams..smh

    I hate my 15m+ team, most are untradeable from icon SBCs. I wish I could sell them all and start again. Ruined my game spending a lot on FP

    Far from impossible mate. I stopped trading around Christmas time bar the 60 85s on my TP and also have a club stacked with cards for sbcs.

    Coins are easy to come by with a little trading. Some basic methods and youre soon at 10m transfer profit. Some coin management and you can stick that all in your team. Need to avoid the sbc's that don't offer value for money.

    I like having my team but I do wonder if it’s part of the reason I’m bored with the game. WL rewards are also no fun for me anymore.

    It’s more fun having a full icon team and not having paid a penny

    its the same bs than with a meta gold team .... winning all games on friday, about 10 - 0 then , saturday loosing 8 out of 10 games (no matter at all if against full icons team or 84- rated) , with most of the games way more shots on target and lots of fantastic poleshots, slapstick gols from oponents + a lot of ball bouncing when tackling (which barely happens at the beginning of WL) .... and then sunday back to normal with mostly wins, and some losses against opponents that are just better .... Same every weekend ... doesn't matter if with full icon team or not (trust me, i tried it)... How can people still not realize, that the team barely makes a different in the result in WL?!?!?

    I haven't spent nearly that and have a 90+ rated team. How's that?

    Do the people who have traded their way up to good teams have fun trading for hours on the market? It must take so many hours each day to be able to accumulate 10m gold in profit you could have gone to work and earned money to buy the way up instead haha. Or is it more not wanting to give EA money.
    Not trolling just interested.

    Its not even an hour a day. Search trading on the forum.There are multiple threads detailing some very good ways to trade that are not time consuming.

    I live in my parent's attic ever since I started my job 7 years ago so without having too pay too much rent, electricity and the likes I can spend around 8k quid on Fifa ever year. So those teams are worth it very much to me. Nothing like kicking off my boots after a workday, load up fifa and get 15 games in!

    I traded to my 15 mil squad. I don’t have any fun in this crap of a game.

    Sitting around 5m. I build a new team and am bored after 2-3 games. Giving up on FIFA for the foreseeable future

    You spend £8k on Fifa every year? And you live in your parents attic? Do you not want to think about prioritising things a little bit there? Like maybe putting some of that 8k towards getting your own place?

    Isn’t £8k kinda average round here? Don’t believe all that rtg crap people keep spouting. I only spent £7k but I have a toty Ramos so it’s worth it.

    They're not mutually exclusive! I put aside 3k each year for my own place. I hope to gather enough capital for a loan by 35 haha

    That money would be enough to have saved for a great deposit on your own house. You would be 56k better off, and probably just as happy with Fifa, or unhappy.

    Although I can't talk, at that age I probably spent the equivalent on Cigarettes, beer and drugs, probably much more.

    Maybe 1 hour a week. Click mobile app. Search IF. Buy for good price. List high. Re list. Repeat. Not much to it really. Spend more time and get more coins. Depends what you want from the game.

    Granted I only have 10m but im not really putting any effort into it like other good traders. It's half the fun of the game. I prefer accomplishing something rather than paying for it. The idea of giving EA money doesn't even cross my mind. I believe games are for playing, not paying.

    I would guess it depends if your trading most get bored as they have won the game so to say like wc was boring to a lot. If you like playing then you would enjoy having a good team.
