With Team of the Season coming to a close, it's that time of year where Ultimate Team starts to settle down for a quiet Summer as we wait for the next FIFA. That said, in order to freshen things up, @Liam9lfc
and I have decided to start our Ultimate Team journey from scratch in the form of a Road to Glory.
I'm sure many of you are familiar with the Road to Glory concept...instead of adding lots of rules as to when you can buy X player after X amount of wins, we decided that we wanted as natural a progression as possible, thus for the most part there won't be any restrictions on the decisions Liam or I can make.
And while the end goal is still to win Division 1, this isn't really a competition between the two of us either. In fact, this is more like a way for us to keep a person record of our Ultimate Team.
So where does Opta
come into play? Throughout the RTG, we will both be recording a plethora of statistics for each individual player, as well as the overall team performance. These stats will range from disciplinary record, to pass completion, and even conversion rate. You can find all the detailed stats by heading onto the Google Sheet I've created (opens in the same tab) - be sure to use the three tabs Chow's Player Stats
, Liam's Player Stats
and Overall Team Comparison
at the bottom of the document.
Both Liam and I have picked one marquee player of equal value to start out as the face of the club. Personally, I have decided to go with SIF Shinji Kagawa, while Liam has gone for TOTS Harry Kane. Other than that, we will be selecting a 23 man squad from our starter pack + the free bronze pack you receive when you first create a club.
As I mentioned earlier, there won't be many restrictions as to the decisions we can make over the course of the RTG. In fact, there will only be one:
Before buying a gold player in a certain position, the club must have used at least one silver player for a minimum of five games in that position. For example, if I wanted to upgrade to a gold striker, I would have to purchase and use at least one silver striker for a minimum of five games before I could sign a gold striker.
Liam will being playing Seasons for the most part, while I'll probably mix and match between Online Single Matches, Cups and Seasons.
Part of the reason we wanted to start an RTG was to give both of us the chance to use lots of different players that we hadn't got the chance to use over the course of this FIFA. If there's any players that we are currently using/have used, and you'd like our opinion on how they play in game, feel free to ask and we'll bring out a player review!
