Welcome to the FIFA 18 iteration of the American Soccer Lounge (yeah, we call it soccer...)

This lounge can be used to discussion anything that relates to MLS, the US National Team or Yanks Abroad. Don't feel the need to limit yourself to talking FUT either, real life action is fair game as well!

    Quick reviews for those wondering.

    Martinez for 10k if worth it imo. Pace literally destroys defenders, especially ones that havent learned how to play yet. Shooting is 10x better than last year imo, although GK are morons so that might help.

    Piatti has been ok. Good enough for a starter team.

    Dzemali had been the standout on my team. Scoring goals and getting assists. Has been finishing chances well and been above average in the midfield.

    Almiron is fast.

    Pulisic has been underwhelming.

    Only played 8 games so obviously dont have it all figured out but wide formations have been working way better for me that the narrow. Game is slower in a way and narrow formations cant cope with a spread out attack.

    In other news.....MLS silvers are stunning this year! So many options out wide and through the middle. Gashi, Hyka, Gerso, Accam, Meram, Lamah and Villalba. Then the central players like Dax, Sacha, Jones, Medunjanin,Molino, Laba

    I like that they're all high end silvers, 73-74 and not just floating around the 70 mark pointlessly

    I can second that underwhelming Pulisic comment. Aside from pace and dribbling, he doesn't really make an impact for me

    I wish PS4 had early access. :/
    Granted I don't think early access applies to the disc version. That's the only version I buy for yearly franchises like FIFA and COD since people rarely go back to past titles. Figure I might as well sell the old ones for like $5.

    Disappointing. I hope they announce more throughout the year. Idk if that's possible or they'll do that, but one can hope.

    1st page.
    Also, will you find room in your wallet for Josef's IF? The seasons is winding down so you won't see an MLSer until Team of the Weak starts next summer. Although the WC happens next year.

    Josef is 100% worth. He is single handily winning me games. Great card to pick up after you have got your teams sorted because you cant lose on him at his current price.


    Finally got my main team and fitness team (on bench) sorted

    If I sold/discarded everything I have I'm probably around 150k right now. Not too bad considering I haven't touched the SBCs yet.

    Yeah, worst pack luck for me out of any FIFA. 260$ and best has been Willian. Not even any good 84 unders like martial, dembele, rashford, etc

    Yikes that's not good at all. I'm not sure if I want to drop the money just yet, but also know now is as good as ever

    Opened 4.6k worth. Got IF Mustafi, Willian, Gueye, Son, Joao Mario, and a few others worth 2-3k.

    I'm pretty happy with that but I've been trading. I hate the early grind of having pretty much nothing so I burned 35 bucks to give me a boost. Not spending anymore money that's for sure. More than half my packs had non rares. It felt like I was going into every pack losing outside the above pulls. I'd say I did pretty good but I'm quitting while I'm ahead lol.
