I just stand there up front and score the goals, because that's my job
-Mario Gomez

Concept

Pretty simple really. Fancied building a team up around one main striker, but none of the NIFs really appealed to me at all. The icons I’d like to use are all far out of reach for someone not spending any money on the game, and then I thought of Super Mario Gomez! Reasonably quick, strong, great finisher - what’s not to like!

One of the most prolific goal scorers of a generation, and widely considered one of the best forwards in world football, Gomez started his career at Stuttgart, where 63 goals in 121 appearances earned him a move to German giants Bayern Munich, where he was even more prolific, notching 75 in 113 games in the star-studded Bayern side.

A brief move to Italy with Fiorentina followed, then a loan spell in the Super Lig with Besiktas, before he returned to the Bundesliga to see out his career, firstly with Wolfsburg before returning to his boyhood club Stuttgart.

Gomez found the net 31 times in 78 appearances with the German national side.

With six league titles and a Champions League win on his honours list, Gomez is up there with the elite forwards of my generation.

Rules

This is a first owner RTG, so all players aside from Mario himself must be pack pulled. As I am not spending any money whatsoever on FIFA points this year, this could be quite the challenge. However, luckily for me, I don’t get much enjoyment from playing to the meta, and using the most common players.

I find FUT a lot more fun when I have a structure to what I am grinding for etc. I play a mix of online and offline, but am a below average player, so a lot will probably be offline with online mainly used to pursue objectives.

I’ll be allowing 2 x Gold Upgrade SBCs to be completed every day in pursuit of upgrades to the team, and hoping to get some good cards from SBCs and objectives..

I’ll also do a Premium Gold Preview Pack each day in the hope of getting someone useable into the team.

I sank most of my coins into Mario and have put most of the rest into discard informs for a rainy day. I’ll be using coins primarily to buy players to complete objectives etc. for desirable players who will improve the squad and have kept a little float of around 50k to trade with on the side and buy players for upgrade SBCs etc.

The Starting Team

I got a couple of nice untradeable pulls from some objective packs which has given us a really nice platform to build from

    So, I think this is about the best team I can start the adventure with!

    Nice!

    Looking forward to this. My early pulls pushed me to La Liga so i bought Morientes but Gomez will be my future target. Had loads of good memories of using him in previous years!

    If mid Torres was in my price range I’d have leapt on that. Would never get bored of using a player I idolised like that. But well out of reach for months, so tossed up between Morientes and Gomez and decided on Mario!

    13 packs of various nature to open from objectives and squad battles, so lets hope for something good to kickstart the journey!

    No clue yet my man, just trying to put something together to begin with! Have barely played the game at all yet other than Squad Battles during early access.

    OK, time for a pack binge.

    Let’s start with the 2 x daily

    Gold Upgrade SBCs

    Couple of useful enough 83s to pad out the bench, if nothing else

    On to the untradeable packs I have saved up from objectives

    OTW Loan Player Pack

    Happy enough with Chilwell, slots right in at left back for an upgrade on Davies.

    Two Players Pack x 2

    Richarlison a nice little pull, could be a good foil for Gomez!

    Small Electrum Players Pack

    Can’t complain here, Correa very useable and Gnabry a nice pull, though a bit redundant with having already packed an untradeable Sane. Nice links for Mario though.

    Now onto Tradeable rewards from Squad Battles. Hopefully a mix of useable cards and some higher value stuff to put towards the fund for completing SBCs and objectives.

    Elustondo a really nice pull and will be a good link to Ramos. Handanovic, though I won’t use him, will be decent fodder.

    Prime Mixed Players Pack

    Well, I can’t have too many complaints about that all in all. Couple of players who can slot right in and improve the team before we’ve even played a game.

    Team Update

    He's cheap, wouldn't use him myself, too similair to Mario.

    Nice start here, are you doing two gold upgrades every day?

    Yeah, two gold upgrade packs and a preview pack every day.

    So upgrades will come in the form of gold upgrades, preview packs (though unlikely to get anything worth the coins if the first couple of weeks is anything to go by!) plus anything packed from MM, objectives, squad battles rewards etc.

    One thing I like about doing this sort of thing is that it makes you genuinely happy to pack cards that you’d otherwise be disappointed with lol.

    Today’s two gold upgrades got off to a bad start

    0-F424015-5-AEB-4179-AABA-B6897-FCD4916.png

    But the second pack was much kinder. Nothing crazy but nice cards to get that will be easy to get in to the team.

    Here’s how we are looking now then.

    7-C40-F383-FE60-47-C0-B9-AE-6822-D2-B2-AAD7.png

    We could really do with a proper right back who will link nicely with the German side of the team and someone to give Mario a better link to the midfield.

    Should hopefully knock off a few objectives in and around work today so might get a couple more packs before the day is out.

    Love the thread mate! Similar to @LenKikk’s, it’s making me want to do this as well! How’s Mario been playing? Love a target man

    Thanks man!

    Not played a great deal yet (the whole game in general). Played my first 3-4 games today, feels good overall though still getting used to the game in general.
