Like avoiding Liverpool players if you're an Everton fan, avoiding players from certain countries due to politics, breaking human rights, animal cruelty etc?

    I’m playing with player I like and “know” or have watched in real life, mostly.

    Not avoiding many players.. maybe the Juventus ones but I don’t care that much. The only one I would play (ad a sub) is Ronaldo if he’s a red pick but I highly doubt it

    Mostly playing with players I like irl. Used to stay away from Barcelona players, but not anymore.


    The only one I can’t really stand even today is Neymar.

    Benzema and Ribery's penchant for underage hookers is a bit offputting

    I wouldn't have used Rapey Ron but got his 94 red and principles only go so far

    I'm personally trying to avoid players from Russia, Saudi Arabia, China and Iran (lol). Don't really want Turkish players either, but actually got Erkin now 😑 I think he even joined a rival 😑

    Also avoiding players who left a club in a terrible way, to a rival etc, espescially former Dortmund players, but also Arsenal players joining Utd/City etc, even if I'm not an Arsenal fan.

    Not getting anyone from Bayern, Leipzig or Schalke.

    lol...no.

    I couldn't care less what country a player comes from or what their personal life is like.

    All I care about, in the game, is whether they do what I need them to do (i.e score goals, stop goals etc...).

    Real life is different, and I do have particular reasons for not liking/supporting certain players or teams.

    I avoid any card that is completely unrealistic.

    FB maximan for instance. A rubbish newcastle player should never have a card that good. Refuse to even try the card it's ridiculous.

    I refuse to use any Tottenham players, mostly base my team on arsenal past and present with a mix of players I’ve always admired. But yeah Any Spurs player gets sold

    I only use players who currently play for my favorite team IRL, players who used to play for it, or players who claim to be fans of my team. If I can't find a decent player for a specific position that meets those requirements, then I choose from others that I like. That´s the way I enjoy this game.

    I'm English and run a La Liga side so not really.

    I do think that Griezmann is the most overrated player on the planet but I packed his TOTS in the guaranteed pack and he's superb so there you go haha

    He's really not. The FB card makes him one of the best players in the game, completely unrealistic. It's like giving Charlie Adam gullit stats.

    Try and avoid any Liverpool players ideally, for obvious reasons, worst fan base in the country. Not just because they’re now winning, they’ve always been like it

    I generally avoid players i dont watch/know about in real life. So no Ryan Kents or a bunch of OP Saudi League TOTS players in my teams.

    I have one Bundesliga team thats pretty mediocre with players i watch weekly. My other team is more meta/tryhard, but still with players i like in real life (Messi, Lautaro, Mane, Ramos, ...)

    Same as every year, I end up with a Ajax/Dutch Squad.

    I always build slowly towards it.
