    posted a message on Most boring FIFA yet?

    I've only been playing this game for a week now but I cant stand it anymore. I would call myself a hardcore FIFA player in the sense that I could play hours and hours of previous FIFA games and never being bored. This new FIFA is another story. Everything is just so repetitive (way more than it used to be)... Anyone feeling the same way?

     

    I qualified to the WL on my ultimate try, maybe I shoudnt have qualified at all. I'm like 11 wins in 27 games. That's plain pathetic. I guess WL isnt the best place to learn the game, but that's not learning time that I need, it's a better game. Most things are down to EA's will... sometimes it's all down to pace for my opponent who completely breaks my defense with a through ball. Later I cant outpace anybody even if my pacey player is like 4 meters upfront the defender. Some other time my opponent have just no clue what to do and a random pass just go through all the legs and find the striker. I'm already bored of seeing Bakayako in every single FUT squad as well. The list could go on and on. Just wanted to know if some of you felt the same way because I was fine with previous FIFAs (I used to be an happy div3-2 player).

     

    Also much could be say about starheads, too much missing players, Neymar looks quite shit in all honesty. Cinematics do look nice but come on, when you play a match it still doesnt look like a next gen game. You can barely recognize players from the playing view and the moves and passes are still so robotic... Don't know if this is all about the "new gameplay"/players physics but I feel like every game is the same, every opponent do the same boring shit and so do I (well I dont play like most people do IMO but I often tend to do the same stuff again and again.I used to have quite some diversity in other FIFAs). Feels quite sad to post such a thread cause Ive always enjoyed this game but I'm afraid this ends right here. That's too bad on a World Cup year...

     

    EDIT: obviously playing all the 40 games was a lot in FIFA 17 but this just seems to never ends in FIFA 18. I still have 10+ games to play and think I'm simply gonna give up. First and last time playing the WL this year I guess. Not even completing the 40 games although I'm on holiday.

    posted a message on Draft or packs?

    Hi all,

     

    I'm back to the game and dont want to spend too much time trading to make coins, I've never been that succesful in previous years anyway.

    So as we're still early in the game I thought it could be ok to buy some FIFA points. But instead of going straight to packs buying I might be more interesting to go for the draft mode. I mean you get to try some nice cards and actually play games.

     

    Thing I ignore is how good draft rewards packs are? How many games do I need to win in order to get better packs than just buying them in the store? Does playing offline makes any difference with online game rewards? I'd rather play offline but if I lose my first game everytime and just get a basic gold pack it's not worth it for sure...

     

    So is it a good strategy to go for draft and what is your experience with those packs?

    posted a message on Nice scam EA..

    That's what SBC are made for mate... but nobody seems to understand it.

    Why do you think Mandzukic is now worth 5k? because shit ton of people keeps completing the SBC hoping for the impossible.

    It's either made for you to blow your hard earnt coins or give you another reason to buy packs (to fill the SBC).

     

    Hope they'll remove this feature but they won't. So many people seem to enjoy it only god knows why...

    Quote from Revron15 >>

    I haven't really seen this as an issue - the market in general has crashed, my teams were worth 2.8m now they're more like 1.7m maybe less... but so is everything else.. everything has gone down, so i can still afford the same stuff as before if not more

     What he says is easy to understand... if he had waited a single week longer before buying a part of the team he wanted, he could afford them all by now. Sure he hasn't lost money per say, but he could have been wealthier right now.
    Sure you can't predict everything. Although a TOTS SBC was highly predictable and it's just hilarious to see most unwanted players going for 5k now.
    Some people are saying this year the market experience was refreshing and shit, please stop sucking on EA... SBC's are the main reason high end players prices are going down right now. It would have been nice if the timing was right. But now the game is almost dead. My goal was to buy the best Ligue 1 squad possible by TOTS and I just couldnt do it, TOTS Lacazette alone would have ruined me. He's been like 1.7 million at its lowest, weeks later he's as low as 800k (price /2 within a week...). A normal price evolution would be lowest price reached while available in packs, then a possible drop during EA TOTS... but -700k... The market is so poorly handled by EA. So instead of achieving my goal I've bought like the best NIF cards to build a Champions League like squad (Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar, Lewa, Neuer, Sergio Ramos etc...) before the EA TOTS and its going all down as well. Honestly Ive stopped caring at all. But it has to be pointed out as poor effect of EA features. Despised the SBC stuff from both ends. It's useless to me. Sure I can benefit it by selling some 83 players for 5k but as I said I couldnt care less anymore. FIFA 18 is gonna be even more fucked up IMO.

    posted a message on Fut Champions makes so many coins.. No!

    yeah some people can suck on EA as much as they please saying it was nice adding those new features, in the end its all for the worse for the average player. I had no interest in SBCs and hated it as soon as I've seen it was driving some players prices up. I mean a card like Gameiro would have been worth 700 coins all year. This year it was anywhere between 1k and let's say 4k. Same thing for all the 82+ rated players. Buying players at their rock bottom price was quite my thing in previous edition. And yep FUT Champs is only great for the elite players...

     

    Last year during Euro 2016 I've built the French national team with the best version possible of each players such as TOTY Pogba, TOTS Griezmann, TOTS Payet, TOTS Matuidi, TOTS Umtiti, TOTS Gignac etc and TOTS prices this year are simply shocking. TOTS Lacazette for 1.7m wtf seriously...

    I'm way poorer than last year there's no doubt.

    Still I've managed to build a decent Ligue 1 squad: MOTM Lopes, TOTS Marquinhos, 2IF Dante, IF Jallet, IF Evra, MOTM Matuidi, TOTS Tolisso, TOTS Verratti, MOTM Di Maria, TOTS Falcao and OTW Depay. I've played some FUT Champs to feel some of the magic. Won 2 games, then lost 6 in a row. 2 wins out of 8 with this team. Screw it EA. I stoped right there. There is literally no point in uprading your team at all...

    I guess it's near no chance of getting an 90+ rated card...

    Interested in hearing feedback bc I'm interested in some TOTS Ligue 1 players too.

    Quote from DazDybala21 >>

    Probably a waste of money I would say. 

     

    You would be so much better just doing loads and loads of the ligue 1 SBC, 11 random rare gold players, costs around 8k and it pays out so much more than normal packs. they are untradable but I was able to build my dream prem team doing the sbc so was good. My Tots Prem team is worth around 3mill and I only spent around 250k on the sbc

     

     nice. Only 3 are rare cards out of the 12 though isnt it?
    was enough for you to get TOTS cards? So maybe a few on fifa points and the shit rare cards I get I put them in the SBC...
    The untradable part is quite annoying, I have a thing with only using players with a scanned face, so in Ligue 1 I'm mostly after Lacazette, Tolisso, Falcao, Thauvin, Gomis and Verratti...

    posted a message on 125k ultimate pack

    Hi guys,

    this year I'm quite short of coins to afford most of the TOTS I'd like. I'm interested in Ligue 1 which seems to start tonight.

    I'm considering buying FIFA points for the first time ever... From your experience, what time is better to open packs (during the big promo?, during the day/night?), and what packs? Also if you do think it's pointless and a sure waste of money let me know.

    posted a message on Monthlies

    EA's shiting on us it's hilarious. One month of dedication, I end monthly Gold 2, get 3 keepers (86 Consigli, 86 Navas, 84 Horn) and 81 Ginczek.

    Navas is the only one I might use.

     

    Gold 3 weekly: best player was Carvajal (I'm ok with it) but rest is pure crap...

    posted a message on The worst last 3 games I have ever experienced, Gold 1 for me is simply not possible.

    I'm getting miserable Gold 3 every week this month.

     

    Had my BEST EVER start this weekend. Went 14-9 on Friday. I was pretty sure I wouldnt keep that decent ratio with the following games but still making 21 wins seemed very likely (requiring 7 wins ouf of 17)

    Played the rest of the games on saturday afternoon and sunday morning. I've just completed the 40 games now. Guess what, I'm ending 20-20. Pefectly balanced, well rounded, that's how EA likes it for me.

     

    So that's a 6-11 on my last 17 games... and I wont even start with the BS I went through there is literally no point anymore we all know EA is full of it. This game's manipulated to the limit it's crystal clear.

    My mission was accomplished when I've reached 16 wins anyway which is gonna get me Gold 2 monthlies, but I wanted to end weekly Gold 2 for a change. Twice this month I have ended one win away from Gold 2, and this week was clearly the most laughable way to lose it. So many games going through ET, and losing on penalties... Hopefully this is all over now. No more weekend pressure for me.

    blue_eddie's right.

     

    I got two of them from FUT CHAMPS packs before TOTS, so I'll sell one for an ok profit.

    The other one I'm using gave me the win in the cup final. TOTS Gylfi Sigurdsson is mine thanks to this beast! Smile

    posted a message on fed up!

    I guess with FUT champ this is where the journey ends for us mate. I'm 27 and yesterday I broke a plate  lmao.

     

    You said the word, we play passionatly, I guess most people only play to play, they barely care about football. And the game is with no doubt made to fit most people so this means endless amount of BS games like you've described.

    I play to win but not desperatly, not in a noob way, Musa never been a part of my squad if you know what I mean. I try to produce decent football, often having possession and way more chances. But hey, it appears that irl a shit team can beat a better one (Im talking playstyle, not the value of the players), so EA see no reason this can't happen in every single of their games... it is infuriating that's for sure but won't ever change.
