Sold up my team for TOTS and am using a cheap hybrid team in the meantime and I have to say I am having way more fun with players like depay,lonzano and talisca.



Maybe its because I'm not expecting as much going into games with a lower rated team,anyone else having a similar experience.

    In any other FIFA I would say yes. In 19 crappy teams aren't viable for high ranks. Long gone are the days when you could combine fun with the competitive aspect.

    Not really. Unless you play in lower divisions or something, but there is nothing fun about getting hammered against good players with insane teams.

    Yes bro, totally agree!!! after haven't been playing for quite a while i started a couple of games in div2 agian last week... Only untradeales and the only special card was De Bruyne futmas... the others from the likes of Jesus, Sane , Fabinho ... good gold cards but nothing special . Bro it was so much fun! i really thougt i could enjoy this game again, quick responing, beautiful runs, when triggered, tackling was working ! So i decided to do some loan icon cards on sunday to decide where to invest all the coins that i have lying around + had a loan PIM Gullit from weekly objectives... When playing with my nearly full Elite icon team, i was suddenly playing another game ... everything felt so slow and unresponsive ( typical running in mud feeling) , AI Player didn't do runs and my player just couldn't tackle anymore. After winning nearly every game with my gold team , i lost 10 games in a row with my full icon team yesterday and mooved down to div3 ... Honestly, really no idea, whats going on with this game ?!?! I am not saying this happened because of playing with an Icon team, but for sure DESPITE it .... If you get bad gameplay you'll get it, no matter if your team is worth 250 thousand or 25 mill ...

    Up until about Fifa 17, players and squads were secondary to skill. Now its P2W

    Pretty much this. A hyper-stacked squad is a prerequisite to entering E1-2 and top100.

    True. Back in the day it didn't matter that much. It would only give a slight edge at best but in Fifa 19 you are guaranteed a top finish if you have a God squad. If you are half decent that is

    The only time my icons feel overpowered is when my opponent sucks at defending... which basically means they all feel average now...

    And why is that may some people ask - it’s because the game is literally playing itself with those God Squads.

    All the assists becomes so insane it’s hard to tell if I did any good by myself. No joke.
