Credit @Sokker14 for the inspiration behind these graphics.

Welcome to my journey through FIFA Ultimate Team 16. The idea behind this thread was partly inspired by the work of @Alastair and the forumers over in the Career Mode Stories category - here's a link to both the FIFA 15 and FIFA 16 sections.

Essentially this will be a place for me to share my experiences throughout the year, whether it be through match highlights, player reviews or maybe even pack openings. I'll also be tracking a large amount of statistics for all the players I use (certainly, these will help when it comes to player reviews, but it's mostly for anyone interested in the numbers side of the game) - a link to all these statistics can be found here or a couple of posts down in the Statistics section.

Of course, if you have something to share, by all means feel free to post it here...maybe there's a squad you're having fun with, or a player you want reviewed? In fact I encourage people to generate discussion here, so long as it's Ultimate Team related.

Finally, if you want to catch up on anything you've missed, you can find all major posts in the Archive section.

    Thanks for all the kind words, will be bringing out an article later on today. :)

    Tip #1:
    Also, for those who haven't checked the mobile (companion app), make sure you do as you can draft your first FUT Draft team for free so it'll be ready to go when you get your hands on the game. You only get one free token for either offline or online, so make sure you choose carefully (personally, I will be going with online). Moreover, if you wait till the GW1 In Form's are released later today, you may get the chance to draft one for your team.
  • Can't wait! Bookmarked this thread. :D

    Got George Best in mine as a captain. Well happy. Though I'll probably be up against lots of inform ronaldos!

    First FUT Draft:

    I should also mention that my formation choices were: 4-4-2, 4-4-2 (2), 4-2-2-2, 5-3-2 and 5-2-1-2. Not exactly ideal. :#

    @Snake :)

    @Smoothino For sure! I've had a lot of success with it on the demo, alongside the 4-2-3-1 (2) and surprisingly, the 3-5-1-1...with interceptions being so strong, I have a feeling that 2 CDM formations will shine this year.

    @Foregone Conclusion Wow George Best! Just a little jealous. ;) You can see my draft above.

    Financial Update:

    Welp, my total coins took a plunge, with good reason. I have purchased IF Guarin (as an investment). GW1 IF's always have a tendency to rise in price so this is a fairly safe bet...it did however take quite a few trades and a bit of creative accounting.

    Below (and in the Latest post), you can find a graph of my current coin total + trade profit - I'll be updating this daily.

    That guarin should be a fairly safe bet I reckon.. not sure quite how much you'll make though. Got a specific amount in mind for when you'll sell?

    Very nice Goodluck. I can't even download the companion app. It says it's not compatible to my note 4. I thought it would be updated to be compatible back on fifa 15, but EA just never did sniff. So sad. I can't trade while at work lol

    I think you'll make a good return on the IF Guarin investment. Made a similar amount of coins using tips from the old forums and I'm now looking for a decent investment, but not sure who to for atm :(

    @Rob I do, it's tough to read the market at this early stage, this is something I'm really thinking about either selling up quickly if he hits X amount, or waiting a few weeks (keeping him fresh) and then selling for a premium. It's a shame the US release is a couple of days before he goes out of packs, would have been straight forward otherwise. Something to keep track of though.

    @IamFrench @xciljw @PassingThoughts @mrwf- Danke. :)

    @BCBeneli Absolute rip. :| You can't sneak a cheeky tab on your work computer/laptop for the web app? ;)

    @TheWiseWizard Nice one. :) It's hard to say at the moment, Mahrez is a good bet with his IRL hype if you can afford him, and being a silver, his supply will always be very limited. Guarin/Payet are the other two options I'd recommend, in terms of IF's.

    @HekTic_JukeZ Thanks. :) I barely played seasons in 15, in fact I stopped at 100 wins (100-42-24)...closest I got to a D1 title was a win away I think, but I bottled the last couple of games of that season. :/
