What to do with 17 tokens?

I’ve completed my 17 tokens, it honestly wasn’t that bad at all. I’m really leaning towards taking koeman and a pack. I could make a cool Dutch team later in the game with robben koeman etc. Then again, the 89+ and mid/prime , or base player pick coi,d give a useful card. I’m not sure I like the idea of a card being selected for me. I wish there were more options for guaranteed players. I would happily take a prime puyol or baby Maldini instead of mid Henry. What are you guys doing?

    I am leaning towards packs + 1 of Rijkaard/Koeman but still can not decide which one would fit my setup better, the dilemma is that they both have good reviews and both fit so it is a tough one.

    But that wouldn't help create a culture of gambling in their games so that when youngsters reach the age of 18 and can spend their own money (ideally on Fifa points), gambling and taking chances are normalised to them.

    Yes that is accurate. I don’t like the gambling aspect and don’t buy FP. I like the idea of playing the game and working towards a player I want. I don’t like the unknown gambling aspect.

    If it's any help, I really like my Koeman. I'm hoping I can pick up the other 5 swaps to use for packs during TOTY. Getting Koeman led me to buying Desailly, who I think swap as CB/CDM in game. For some reason, being able to move players in game like that is very appealing to me.

    Cool thanks, how is koeman in midfield? Are his free kicks best in game?

    Player pick is your best chance of getting something good. The vast majority have one, usually two good choices. Nakata/rio/ADP for me.

    Player pick... or if you want a shot at something big from packs then take 85+ 5 pack etc.

    Can use players as fodder later down the line.

    Personally if I had done that many I’d go for the player pick

    I'm honestly the worst person to ask about free kicks as I've managed to score 1 over the entire life of the game :# But he's a boss in midfield. I won a lot of tackles with him that I feel like previously would have bounced back to the offensive player. He also is really good at starting the attack with a long ball, and has scored some good edge of the box goals from cdm.

    I think this is the best option.

    I will follow since I will have token 17 later tonight. I am leaning towards Henry tough to use him as a striker

    I'm leaning towards gambling for the base icon pick.

    Was tempted to go Koeman and 83 x 25 pack but Koeman just doesn't excite me.

    Would go for Henry but he doesn't seem to play well by the reviews I've seen.

    If you have the coins then buy prime koeman. If you like him then take him in the swaps.

    I went 2 ultimate, 83x25 and base mid.

    Has anybody seen a base player pick that didn't have atleast 1 really good player, most I've seen on yt all have atleast 1 super amazing card.... really tempting...

    I'm in the same boat. I looked at the baseplayer pick but since its base there are only 4-5 base icons that are not behind the power curve already and i think its slim chance to get one of those even with the pick...

    I was going to do the 89+ mid but then thought harder on it and realized that even though I have a better than average chance not to pack trash the upside is limited too.

    I think I'm going to roll the dice and get the mid/prime pack and hope for the best even though I know I'll likely get inzhagi or giggs or some other garbo. and then do the ultimate packs when TOTY comes out hoping for a whale.

    I do waver on what i ultimately will do. its heartening to see that some are getting some decent options in teh base pick pack though.

    I have seen two bad ones. Figo as best in one. And then one just disaster. That said the odds seem to be 90% of better for having a good card.

    I don’t even really want a good player....just one that I’ll use. I’d be happy with puyol, riquelme etc. so maybe the base pick is best. Oh well, I’ll decide soon.

    Absolutely. You can literally hold the target in the top corner and it barely moves. Even with a defender in the way, it usually goes in.

    I haven't done an icon sbc at all this year, I usually don't like to roll the dice but I'm in a good spot trading wise so I think I'm going for the player pick.

    2 more sb wins to go.

    Will report back with results.

    Good luck...I still can’t decide between koeman, mid/prime , 89+ or base player pick.
