Inconsistent game play and average promos have made my interest in this game dwindle, so in order to reinvigorate my desire to play, I've decided to do a proper Bronze to Gold RTG.
After doing something similar with Raul last year (around the same time too) I found it a great success that helped create a similar feeling to when I first started playing Ultimate Team. This year I'm going to one up that and use the man himself, Sir Kenny Dalglish
To mimic his career I will first be using a Scottish Premiership team starting with Bronze Rares, moving up tier by tier (Bronze Rare -> Silver Non-Rares -> Silver Rares etc.) as I complete certain scoring/assisting milestones. After I reach a full Scottish Premiership Gold/Special team (or as close as I can get), I will then follow his move to Liverpool and switch to the Premier League and start again (but with Silvers if they're not crazy pricey).
In order to keep myself honest I'm going to document my journey here, so feel free to follow along, or perhaps start your own. Otherwise enjoy not paying attention as I self bump my way to glory! The Rules:
- Must only use Scottish Premiership players until Premier League Stage
- All games must be played online and no friendlies.
- May only use substitutes if they have played in the team before.
- Can choose to upgrade a card to the next tier before full team has had a tier upgrade but
cannot upgrade a player twice in a row until they have played a minimum of 5 games. So I can't just accumulate 2 upgrade points and then skip a tier with a player.
That's it, for now.The Upgrades:
Bronze Rare -> Silver Non-Rare: 1 upgrade every 5 goals/assists
Silver Non-Rare -> Silver Rare: 1 upgrade every 5 goals/assists
Silver Non-Rare -> Gold Non-Rare: 1 upgrade every 5 goals/assists
Gold Non-Rare -> Gold Rare: 1 upgrade every 10 goals/assistsMilestones:
25/50/100/150 etc. goals/assists: May upgrade one player to a special card of that tier (if available).
Hat tricks (goals or assists but not both in one game): 1 upgrade - This will last only until team has reached Gold tier.The Starting Team
Using Anfield as there's no Celtic Park in game..
Time to get started
