    Quote from Justice4Barb >>

    Say you've got 100 chem for your squad with a manager. But not everyones on 10 chem so say you've got a LF at ST on 6-7 chem will he play worse than if he had 10 them despite the squads overall chem being 100?

     

    Also say a player like a LM is at LW even with 10 chemistry etc. will he play out of position slightly? So ultimately even with chemistry aside because your playing a LM at LW will he not position properly, or like a CAM at CM etc? So what I'm really asking does a player have to have correct positioning to play properly at his allocated position, even with full them does it effect his position an how well he plays there?

     Your first point for me yes they will play worse if on 6-7 chem. some people don't notice it or say it makes no difference, for me they are less explosive and feel more dumbed down, maybe it's because you cannot feel the chemistry style fully, a hunter on an attacking player makes a difference. 
    Correct positioning makes no difference if they are still on 10 chem. my 89 Son is a LF currently playing LW but he's on 10 and there's no difference. Only reason for changing it is so it looks neater with all green positions or if you've got OCD!

    posted a message on Standing 'tackle' - broken

    I don't know what's going on since the last update but the standing tackle button just doesn't work for me. It wasn't great before but now Jesus it's shocking. I just cannot win the ball back using it. It just bounces back to my opponent or my player tries to tackle so slowly it's like he's doing it in stages. It seems the only way to win the ball back is cutting out passes or trying your luck with an overpowered sliding tackle and hope for the best. Have they put this in the game to make it even more random idk. Anyone else having trouble with this?

    posted a message on Non Loan Recyled SBCs. Is anyone doing them? Purple Hazard VS POTM2/89 Son.
    Quote from blue_eddie >>

    So I've seen all these pop up yesterday.

    All permanent 'non loan' cards.

    Tons of the FUTMAS ones (Fernandinho/Modric/De Rossi/Dembele [Spurs] etc etc).

    Also POTM one's - E.G. Hazard and Sterling.

     

    To be honest, these cards were 'top rate' back in the day of course, but they are not so good now compared to TOTS.

    However, due to the requirements, if you have a ton of 'useless untradeable' red cards you can trade in for them, they could be useful.

     

    I've never used 'POTM Purple Hazard' - how good is he? (I would rather read people's feedback than spend time on the 'loan one' if I am honest, I value other people's feedback more than a 5 game loan lol).

     

    Can Purple Hazard still cut it at this stage in the game?

     

    E.G. I have 89 Son, is 91 Hazard better?

    I assume it is a 'no brainer' and the 'broken Son' card is better, as Son has far more superior stats, but Son's workrates are H/H and Hazard's are H/M which must be better. I suppose if you want to link with Kante/Chelsea players Hazard could be good?

     

    Has anyone used both 89 Son and 91 Hazard over a lot of games?

     

    I'll be honest, I've not seen SBC 91 Hazard for ages in opponents teams, I am assuming anyone who has 89 Son has ditched Hazard in their team for the Son card, which is why we don't see Hazard anymore?

     

     

    I think it is great EA have brought these SBCs back permanently, but I am not sure it is worth doing any of them at this stage in the game.

     

    Whatever happens I will of course wait for Friday to see if I want to use the rest of my red untradeables on Gerrard and Lampard first.

    (If I am honest, I don't have enough cards left to do all of them, so should wait for them all the be available to allow me to make an informed decision).

     

    I also assume other POTM and FUTMAS SBCs will follow next Wednesday, I believe they will repeat the whole lot now Smile

     

     

     EDIT - The POTM Sterling could be decent, for the English connection with Gerrard/Lampard when the card is released, but an 84 rated card with a 2 star WF. Seems poor by today's standards.

    Plus, if I am going to use Gerrard/Lampard, I will use FUT Birthday Ashley Cole for the 'perfect link' to Gerrard - this is on the 'left side' - so Sterling being RM is not much use unless it is an 'all English' lineup - also Theo Walcott's special cards are arguably both better than the Sterling POTM card anyway and are both pretty cheap and tradeable, so my conclusion is, these cards aren't really worthwhile anymore Confused Sad really.

     As you say Eddie, the game has moved on with much better tots players now etc. Are they worth doing i would say not. You have better players in your team already. Son over that Hazard every day. Don't get me wrong i like Hazard but he ain't better than 89 Son imho.

    They will make absolutely no difference. The key is to get the players on 10 chem which is what you've done so you will be fine...

    Quote from MJELEB >>

    Gah, I've missed out on two special cards the last two weeks from being too sleepy Smile

     

    I made an agreement with my wife I'd not  play on a Monday and then last night I was too tired to play and it was the same last week.  I could only be bothered to play a few games at the WL and finished on a silver rank.

     

    I'm not wasting time and money making a team for this one with the restrictions so I guess I'll sell up and skip this weekend.  Then I go on holiday so I'll be missing two weekends in a row!

     

    I have a sneaky feeling that I'll snap out of the addiction in that time and realise what a bag of shit the bullshit is in the game and probably never play it again lol.

     Lol you carn't beat a bit of grief from the mrs can you, I didn't miss it while i was away but when you get back, it will be i will just have a few games and then that's it you are hooked again. I don't miss the weekend league though one bit, i have dabbled in it a little bit since i quit playing it but nothing serious. I just like to play the tournament and the online singles and divisions now...

    posted a message on Exceptionally shitty gameplay lately?

    Man, when did they change the gameplay? Just got back from Mexico, haven't played since Friday 7th July. Turned it on yesterday and Jesus it was like playing a completely different game. Unbelievably slow gameplay and not anything I'm used to. It massively annoys me when they change the game completely, you might not notice a great deal if you are playing every day but after a week and half its massive. The gameplay needs to be consistent throughout the game so you can build your team and adapt to it. Consistency is the key. Things were working really well before I went away and my team was set up for that gameplay. Now I need to tear it up, start again and work out how to play again. Feel like a complete noob again lol.

    posted a message on Team of the weeks when the major leagues finish.....
    Quote from tacticsdude >>

    I actually got pretty excited to see 80 Dzemaili in there. Immediately jumped to buy him only to realize he no longer plays in Serie A.

     

    This dude is hands-down my favorite player in FUT and that 80-rated version of him looks amazing. I'm using his IF 74 as rotation to 89 Hamsik at CDM.

     

    Another player I'm looking forward to seeing get a new IF is Gabbiadini. He is my link between EPL and Calcio, and I have his "watch" card collecting dust hoping for an 86+ release. If they don't abandon the database (I don't know when FIFA stops doing updates), Gabbiadini is likely to get a skill/wf upgrade too.

     

    One more: I'd love to see an IF Bruno Peres. If he gets an 84+ he would automatically become the best RB in Calcio, probably the game. This card is broken, his shots are ridiculous - nothing like the stats suggest. His defending is insane (anchor), nobody gets past him with 99 speed and a hidden tackling trait. With better ball-carrying skills and crossing he'd be a top card.

     I second the Bruno Peres comment. I have used 2 and 3 million coin teams throughout this edition and he is hands down the best RB i have used on this game. You can keep your TOTS Walker and TOTS Valencia etc lol

    posted a message on IF Martial against 89 Son - Anyone have experience of both?
    Quote from blue_eddie >>

    Lol, I just missed out reading the stats out and saying....

     

    'Now Let's get into the review'! Smile w/ teeth

     

    I hope prices do drop for when you get back, it is interesting though because I expected TOTS prices to go up when all cards were out of packs, yet they dropped lower Sunday/Monday, probably down to usual 'post FUT Champs Selling Period' but I'd expect them to drop even lower when Futties come out, but maybe they will go back up as they should in theory be 'the best cards in the game'.

     

    Then again, are you sure you don't want the futties cards.... I mean the potential of card here is probably the equivalent of 100 rated. Yes, bloody 100 rated! (Marshall HD again lol, repetition/copying is the finest form of flattery so I am not taking the mickey!!!).

     

    Think of a pink Smalling card @ 88 rating?

    Pink Butland @ 88 rating?

    Pink Martia @ 90 rating? (Because of IF cards he will get a higher card?)

     

    It is CRAZY to see how they will do this, imagine a full pink team, it could be more lethal than a TOTS team.

    Lmao.

     

    Still, probably Pink Smalling won't perform as well IG as normal/NIF Smalling? Same for the others.

     

    PINK MUSA? Arghhhh!!!!

    :D

     

     

     Massive Lol. A pink smalling would be absolutely beautiful Smile w/ teeth

    posted a message on IF Martial against 89 Son - Anyone have experience of both?
    Quote from blue_eddie >>

    Thanks guys, appreciate all your responses, I may try him next week, but will hold off for one reason. The more I think about it... surely Martial has been heavily abused/overused in FUT17, so he will get a pink futties card and I assume it will be LM card, so we could see him get an  88 or higher rated card if they do futties as 2 or 3 rating jumps on top of the 'last IF' which is possible I guess, otherwise it could end up as 87 card.

     

    This means his current two IFs will surely both drop in price quite a lot if they are superseded by a better card.

     

    Appreciate all the feedback though, only just started thinking about futties really...

     

    Sludge, TOTS Laca, not played a LOT with him but did the offline cup last night for one rare player pack reward and played him in one game offline, he missed his first three chance, but ended up scoring, so against the computer he was 1 goal in 1 game.

     

    I had a couple of hours so ended up playing the DKT for the pack reward mainly...

     

    Lacazette player in all games plus another game afterwards online... his record now after 6 games (bear in mind 1 of those games was against the computer offline and he only scored 1 goal in that...).......

     

    Played 6

    Scored 12

    Assists 3

     

    Ok, I must admit, this was the easiest DKT I have ever played in (I even felt guilty playing it in the end, should have played D1).

    This is a phenomenal record though. You could even say it is played 5, score 11, assisted 3 Smile If you discount the offline game lol.


    Still, the real record will be after FUT Champs this weekend if I get a chance to play in it. Have to wait and see.

     

    He did seem a very impressive card though, only thing that bothered me a bit was during build up play, he would sometimes run all the way back from the ST position into a CM position, I assume because of his HH workrate, he will pop up in the midfield sometimes, but I can deal with that as I am used to it from his SBC 87 card.

     

    MarshallHD is doing some quite interesting YouTube videos of 'the best strikers in FUT17' at the moment.

    Currently he has done 4 on the channel, with 2 more each time there is an update.

    So far he has done... TOTY Suarez, TOTS Lacazette, TOTS Dybala and TOTS Lukaku.

    I be fair, I've been wanting to see someone's opinion after using all the best strikers in FUT17, so this is exactly what I wanted.

    I even commented on it and dropped a like, I've never done this on YouTube before, much to my surprise, he responded to my comment within minutes lol Smile

     

     

    Thanks for the review Eddie, feel like I've sat through a Marshall HD video lol.
    im definitely going to buy him when I get back from Mexico and hopefully his price will have dropped!

    posted a message on Kante's Special Cards

    I've used both the 86 and his tots extensively. Honestly there's hardly any difference between the 2 cards other than the finishing on the TOTS..

    the 86 is more than good enough.
