FIFA 20: Keeping “Motivated”

Another year, another FIFA game where I set out to play a lot, get good results in the Weekend League (for my ability) and yet another (increasingly so) year where I find myself fed up of the game earlier & earlier.

I really do like FIFA, so I don’t think it’s a case of just not bothering, but I do think that I need to change my approach a little.

Here’s my ideas/questions as to how you fellas find the motivation to continue, even deep into July.

Each year I make an icon team. Pretty standard, not usually “meta.” Next year, I’ve decided to go back to a more “competitive” style team that encompasses more of players who are still present with special cards, etc.

I think aiming for the same team (there or there abouts has got a bit stale).

This leads on to financing these changes. I always spend a bit at launch, but not a ridiculous amount. I lose motivation for trading because I can afford those players fairly quickly. I will obviously need a lot more coins though next year. How do those of you that do, continue to trade throughout the year?? Any particular methods that you’ve enjoyed this year?

This leads me on to the WL. I’m an average player, Div 3 in Rivals. That said, I struggle to find motivation to play the Weekend League. I want to next year, consistently play to a G3+ standard. How do you retain the motivation to play that many games over the weekend, every weekend? How many coins does a G3 run reward on average?

Does anyone still play Squad Battles? It’s another mode that could be lucrative, but is it worth the time investment or just a boring waste of time?

    Basically what I am asking is, how do you continually play FIFA, generate a large amount of coins and consistently perform in the weekend league.

    I really need to get into that. Do you mess bid? I might snap up loads of 200C silvers at EA Access/Launch.

    I don’t think leagues will be repeatable more times than players available next year

    They have been my best source of income this year & the reward cards make good Icon SBC fodder

    I’ve never spent a penny on Fifa other than buying it. A rtg adds a lot of longevity to ultimate team itself. I would be bored af before January if I had a fully stacked team

    Just get into a mindset that you enjoy the competitive games.

    Also if you get better at the game playing to 14 wins every weekend doesn't even take much time. Granted less people quit this year due to rivals points, but if you start you play like 5 games saturday evening and another 10 on sunday evening you can probably reach 14 wins in 3 hours.

    I love tournaments and like squad battles for weekly objectives.
    Bring back tournaments with good rewards and I buy fifa 20.

    Squad Battles are pretty decent at the beginning of the game when anything you pack cost a lot.

    But overall reward bracket there is not worth the time. Win 4 games a week on legendary, grab 10 000 points (Gold 1) and that’s all.

    Weekend League is a must, bronze pack method is extremely profitable and of course repeatable league SBC’s (which may be removed from FIFA 20).
