but I made D1 for the first time last night!

Changed my team up, finally invested in some good / fast CB's (85 Klostermann is a MONSTER) and switched up in game to a 3-5-2. Had more fun, was surpisingly solid at the back and won 4 games in a row from low'ísh 1800
to reach 1900 :)

So, shameless 'brag', I know. But still wanted to post it :)
Have a nice day !

    Reaching division 1 feels good, great moment for me, unfortunately it feels like 3 divisions in one and when you have an unlucky day and get matched against 2300+ dudes nonstop you'll kind of understand why relegates exist lol

    How much coins would that be? Asking for a friend, I'm at the bottom of the div 2 now. :/

    I'd maybe like it just for that, but affraid objectives would be too hard.

    Thanks all!

    my team (in game, starting on almost full chem)

    Neuer
    WIF Perreira - 85 Klostermann - 86 Upamacano
    81 Davies - 88 Neuhauss - 89 Goretzka - 88 Overmars
    KdB NIF
    Mahrez 89 - 87 WIF Jovic

    I did change it up for the last few matches, had 90 Deco in before, liking Perreira on 10 chem and had the flashback Ronaldo as striker.

    had the same.. was into the 1880+ for about 5/10 times before I actually made it.
    The second to last game was a dude that was in D1 (1930 rating) and the last game was against someone who was lower than me (usually that last game is the one I bottle against a D1 player)

    Thanks!

    For me,a change of formation really helped me. I played 4222 for a long time this year, and the switch to 352 helped a lot.
    Also gave me some more pleassure in playing, helped as well. Can recommend trying it out!

    How is your 352 set up?
  • Chavez76
    9236 posts League Winner
    How is your 352 set up?

    Pressure on heavy touch
    5 width
    5 depth

    balanced
    6 width (think of reducing this a little as I feel my LM / RM are not doing too much in game in attack at least)
    5
    3
    3


    My strikers and cam are all on balanced
    RM is come back on defense
    RCDM is on cover middle and pass intercept
    LCDM is cover wing and stay back.

    Thats about it

    Does pressure on heavy touch lead to any noticeable stamina drain?

    I've tried Constant pressure and this is just a disaster for me - No matter what players dead by half time and this is with a stacked end-game team with 90-99 stamina in every single position.

    Pressure on possession loss is very similar - THey can last a little longer but its just too much stamina drain.

    Is pressure on heavy touch (the only one I haven't tried much) a lot better for stamina? I want to take advantage of all the end game players I have with high stamina but when I try constant pressure, pressure on poss loss, or overload ball side, I just lose all my fitness by the 50-60th minute.

    It's by far the least draining of the 'pressure' ones. I dont feel the need to do any subs untill 75th minute or so, where usually my RM (who's on come back on defense) is getting a bit tired. For the rest, they do not go below 60% or so in a full game (rivals game, as I dont play WL anymore),

    Congrats mate

    Does that mean you'll player better opposition during swaps starting soon iirc and objectives

    Oh, nice, I have really good gullit gang RB/LB subs like Tavernier to toss in late as long as its just a few people tired. I'll give it a shot this WL and see how it goes

    Does depth matter a lot? Is there a particular depth that worked best for you and drained the least stamina?

    I fear it does ... also I think that I will kicked back into D2 soon as I dont feel I am good enough to stay in D1 anyway :)
    Just happy that I reached D1 for the first time in any Fifa since '17 I think

    Not much difference I feel. I do feel it's important to have fast CB's as through balls are a constant thread.
    Now playing Klostermann, Upa and Pereira there as they are just .. fast

    Congrats!!, is Klosterman85 a worthwhile upgrade on his nif?, I packed Neuer untradeable & was thinking Mattheus but only have 1.6m coins max

    Klostermann 85 is insane and probably by far the best CB below 1m in the game. His gold is already great but his RTTF is just on another level @nextqprmanager

    Exactly what @Gibiati is saying. Doubted buying him a long time but he is truly a monster.

    Your team seems better than mine, and I feel I am a mediocre player.. so you should be able to make to D1 as well (if you're not there yet)!

    4-0 and a RQ are very nice results I would say!

    Nowhere near! I'm just way too impatient so tend to make silly mistakes then let my head go 😂
