I don’t get a lot of time to play and would like to play with my actual team not these crap 1st owner teams.

    Exactly what i did. Had 11 from last time, so avoided a lot of grind this time(which is a lot worse). Helps that i like him irl and had zeroed in on him.

    I got Schmeichel, Zanetti. Done all the online challenges without losing, got a good few rage quits, didn't take too long. Doing the squad battle challenges the last two days, they've been a pain in the arse. Finished the last one about an hour ago, don't need the EFL challenge.

    I ended at 19 and did Emilio, but I was thinking about going Rio and Pep, but couldn't be bother to play more so ended with 19. I rather have a fun attacker instead of a good defender

    No more rubbish for me. DR has been ruined, not that it has ever been great but now it’s w pointless mode without any progression.

    Rio will be one of the top CB’s until primes. He will hold his own alongside the current CB’s in the game. He’s free and it means I can save my coins for a beast later on when he starts to drop off. Doubt I’ll be bothering with objectives going forward.

    Forced myself to do 12 last time knowing I could get 4 in the first week this time round without pulling my hair out too much. No more objectives for me...

    You should never feel forced into doing something. I’ll just play with my ultimate team going forward

    I never started the nonsense . Was never worth the time or frustration. I play video games for fun , there is nothing fun about playing 20 squad battles games or trying to win games in div 4 with 🎃🎃🎃🎃 players .

    I would do that also but I only spend a little money at the start and only limited time to play so a free icon is worth a little grind

    It’s more than a little grind for those of us with families etc. plus there are regular gold players that are almost as good as icons. Playing division rivals and making 50 or 60k a week I’ve got a great serie a team that can compete with anyone. I’ve beaten Son and rashford teams so many times .

    I have a wife and kids as well, I managed to do the first set fairly easy. But those seemed simpler or maybe it was because it was new, I only have 3 left to get rio, seems easy enough

    I didn't bother with any of the swaps OBJs. As you said, I play ultimate team to build and use my team. Not to spend more than half my playtime using cards that I would never even consider trying. I wouldn't mind if I had to include a single or a couple cards here and there. But changing the whole team every time I intend to complete one of these OBJs is just not worth the hassle for me. Afterall, I could probably trade my way to any of the available icons in less time than what it would take me to grind the OBjs.

    I get that the swaps aren't made for everybody, and that's fine. But I have a hard time seeing who they're intended for exactly. I'm yet to see anyone enjoying this new system.

    I kind of went the other way, I sold my tradeable team because I don’t have time to play with it with all the objectives and built an untradeable team for WL with all these cards I’ve “earned”. Don’t think it’s too bad either. Invested pretty much all the coins instead

    Stopping at 19 for Gerrard. 1 token to go. This has been a rather boring week, even though I'm having no difficulty getting the wins with the required squads. Feels as pointlessly mundane as those RPG fetch quests, don't you think?

    That’s quite a bunch of untradeables though, mine are like 78 rated randos
