    I ended up going the TOTS Laca route. Got him Friday morning for 1.4M on PS4. Midfing

    Kinda what I was thinking. TOTS Keane, especially being untradeable, is a damn good defender. Not noticing a drop-off from TOTS Dave to Smalling kinda leads me to believe I'm just gonna have ~750K in coins (after selling Dave) to not do much with. I guess I could sell off "everything else" and try to get TOTS Laca.

    posted a message on These CBs, or Not These CBs? That is the question.

    I started out with my "end squad" putting TOTS Dave and TOTS Keane at the back, but that forced me into 2IF Heaton at GK for max chem. After reading another thread, I put Smalling in for Dave and noticed no discernible difference. I also liked De Gea over 2IF Heaton. Is there any other group of CBs you'd use over TOTS Keane and Smalling (factoring in the GK you would have to use and having the goal to maximize chem)?

    Here's the squad.

     

    Current Coins: ~450K

    Untradeables: TOTS Lemar, TOTS Keane, Smalling, De Gea, TOTS Bakayoko

    Not-Shown Cards of Value: TOTS Dave, TOTT Amartey, and any other Silver in this squad.

    So now that the cumulative TOTS SBCs are done, is there any point in holding on to cards I'm not using? Aside from the Marquee Matchups (which I don't really care about), is there any other reason to hold on to them (done all the league SBCs I'm interested in)?

     I don't think so, not sure what else there is that can come out? I may start selling everything off...
    I've got a few pack pulled TOTS (Benedetto, Moreno and Hanni). Will there be a TOTS SBC that will make these guys raise in price? They are all between 22-35k. So was holding onto them for this possiblity.
     
    If you're close to the Quick Sell value of the TOTS (I didn't look them up), just keep them in case there is a SBC with TOTS cards. I was looking at selling off everything that isn't a TOTS card or a card in one of my squads. I can always Quick Sell the TOTS later if there is no SBC for them.

    how will tots salah value vary in next few weeks on ps4?

    i bought him for 530K on friday, thinking it was already low. Now he is around 300k.

    Dont want to take 250k hit. is there any chance his price will increase, after tots stops?

    It won't increase to the point where you're not taking a loss. You might see 350K, but I doubt you'll get to 400K.

    78 Tolisso is still in my club. He's that good. TOTS Tolisso is that much better and worth the 400K I spent on him. I have him at CM along with POTY Kante, with OTW Pogba at CAM in a 433-4.

    I have to second blue_eddie's Alonso comments. I've gone away from him and always come back, even using his NIF LWB in my NIF squad. TOTS Alonso is the best LB/LWB I've used (which is everyone but TOTS Sandro, though NIF Sandro was nice...just can't fit him in my squad for chem). I too run H/H fullbacks (TOTS Pereira on the right for me).

    Albeit only for 5gms, I swapped out TOTS Dave for Smalling last night. No noticeable difference in the way my team played; 5-0 W, 4-1 W, 2-0 DC, 4-0 W, and 1-3 L. This is disheartening.

    Oddly, I'm experiencing LESS bullshit with my 85 team the past two weeks than when it was 80-82. I have no idea why.

    So in the end, this is what I want to say: get the RIGHT kind of big cards and they will provide for you.

    ^THIS^

    I packed untradeable TOTS Lemar and TOTS Bakayoko during the Ligue 1 upgrade SBCs, so I decided to try them out in a squad. TOTS Bakayoko is just useless for me, so I sold off some other cards and bought TOTS Tolisso. I ended up going with this one, and all I can say is that 1) the 433-4 suits me best and 2) it's amazing how cards perform in certain roles as opposed to others. OTW Pogba at CAM is a revelation for me compared to every other position he can play. He always seems to be in the right position when I need a guy at the top of the box or if I need an outlet from the back. I'd even swear 90%+ of his goals for me have been from the CAM in a 433-4. Fucking POTY Kante scores from CM! Dude has been on the receiving end of Pogba's chips and through balls into the box so many times in the past week that I'm wondering what "Stay Back While Attacking" even means. TOTS Tolisso feels like POTY Kante, but he shows up in the box more often on build-up as opposed to just on the break. Defending isn't lacking with these two, and yet they still get forward when I least expect it (both on Stay Back). I don't ask TOTS Lemar to score, but he whips in crosses like it's his job, dribbles around and through people, wins back the ball down the wing with his defending, and even scores on free kicks. TOTS Thauvin seems to have it all for me on the other wing. I use him for crosses, dribbling, and he even has a pretty effective Finesse Shot (though no Trait for it). Now, 2IF Alonso is the best LB I've used this game and I have no complaints with TOTS Alonso at all. Sandro is the closest, but I've no experience with Sandro's TOTS or any IFs. TOTS Dave is the King of Interceptions and TOTS Keane just seems like a rock on my back line. Keane has never upset me in a game. I don't think he's scored yet, though, but who cares. TOTS Pereira hasn't stood out one way or the other, but he and Heaton are only in there because I can't think of who would be better for the max chemistry I can get.

    posted a message on Pack luck for Calcio A

    20-30 combined between the non-rare and rare SBCs. I got a Manolas. I did the same for Ligue 1 and packed TOTS Lemar and TOTS Bakayoko. I did a little more than those for EPL and got TOTS Keane.

     

    The worst has been the League SBCs. I opted to do the Ligue 1 and Serie A ones while their TOTS were in packs. That saved me some coins on guys I had to buy and was able to do both for about 100K (considering all the untradeable cards I had from the non-rare and rare SBC upgrades). These are literally the best cards I got out of all the packs from the two SBCs (So, what? Like 40 packs of various quality?): James, Mahrez, and Verratti. Glad I saved some coins, I guess, though I'll never use Higuain.

    I wish I could find a way to get Koulibaly into my squad. He looks insane! Paired with Chiellini? What ST could compete?

     Yeah his stats look immense. However sometimes stats are deceiving. I used his 88 card and it felt absolutely horrible so slow and delayed. I would never use him again because of that lol.
    i hope we get someone decent for the DKT but I'm convinced we've had our best player from that in Marquinhos...
    So no sense in trying to put him and Reina in this squad? His 88 is already a 97 OVR CB on 8 Chem with Shadow. If it matters, the following guys are untradeable (outside of the AWs and SBCs which y'all already know about): Lemar, Keane, and Bakayoko.

    I would like to see an "I Concede Defeat" option in future versions. Sometimes you know you're not as good as the person you're playing and you just want to move on to the next game (because you have to get them all in, or at least try to win more of them). Sometimes the lag/delay/scripting is unbearable and you want to get out and move on. I just want an "honorable" concession option instead of the disconnect or forfeit match. Limit the number you can use in a week if you want to prohibit abuse of the option.
