    Yeah man, took me awhile but dropping loads at the start, I realized how useless it is. Just went back to trading but still found myself not enjoying any of it.

    It took a few years, but yeah I haven’t spent a dime on any in game purchases across the board since like January. Even with the Show 18 I’m going no money spent. It’s basically burning money

    Yep, haven't been tempted since my last pack binge in October or so. Going full no money spent from here on. Avoid the sunk cost fallacy that way too.

    Is it burning money if I go to a movie or a show (or sporting event) because I have nothing tangible to show for it? Does that mean it has no value?

    It actually makes it more fun imo, I don’t feel super committed to having to work the market and all this bs to ensure my investments and blah blah blah, just playing now to play now

    You don’t know what th movie is until you purchase and see it. We all know what’s coming in fut and how the market will roll, seems like apples and oranges

    Agreed, and the grind to finally get a player makes the reward actually, well, rewarding. Rather than just 'loot crating' your way to the top and blowing money that could be used any other way.

    It’s not the money that’s the problem, it’s the foolishness (imo of me looking back through the years) to think all these cards are actually worth something. Especially actually currency that could be used for useful things.

    I’m not advocating spending, but to me entertainment is entertainment. Someone might really enjoy going to a show that I think is worthless. The same can be said for spending money on a video game. It’s entertainment at the end of the day, and it brings different levels of enjoyment (or lack thereof) to everyone.

    Oh yeah man, I’m not judging anyone or trying to dictate, I’m just telling how I feel after looking back. I know there are a lot of ppl that find great value in the UT’s (hell there’s a whole YouTube industry of it), I’m not taking away from that at all.

    Btw if anyone plays The Show Diamond Dynasty, that is a great set up for no money spent.

    Speaking of which if anyone plays hmu, I’m always down for a game. Plus I’m working an all Reds team so you’re good for at least 3-5 homers off my pitchers a game.

    Have you never regretted spending $20 on a movie that turned out to be ****, same principle. Not necessarily anything to do with poverty.

    Us on the forum alone must have pumped enough into fut over the years that even the part time office cleaners are comfortably housed in mansions by now :dizzy:

    They can probably even afford child minders and cleaners of their own too :D

    Probably spent $600~ this Fifa, which provided me with months of entertainment. Last month I lost $500 on gambling, which provided me about 4 hours of entertainment.

    Not that bad.

    I don’t know what bait is unfortunately man.

    And when you watch in an IMAX theater, you’re gonna pay $20. It should be no problem to you, being not poor and all :P

    Know the feeling, I don’t regret all the money I’ve spent over the years at all but I do regret spending more than I should have

    Not spent anything since Black Friday though so not all bad. Cards off the console now as well and has been for a while so no chance of anymore

    I get paid tomorrow and I’m gonna but wildlands off the store for £20

    Even if it lasts me a month it’s only £5 a week

    18 is awful for no money spent unless you can go 12-0/1 in BR or 12-0 in events lol you literally make no stubs on a game to game basis and they removed the mycareer missions from last year. Even the grinds this year are gonna be very costly in stubs as well as time.

    I have barley spend money in FIFA 18, maybe 100 dollars as maximum and I feel I get way more with the WL rewards so.. (Last opened pack with points I got 7 gold rare items/consumables and only regular gold players) :cry:

    I stopped using money and I play only to 11 wins every weekend. Enough to receive packs, coins and not stress out with the game.
