    I have two man u kits at the moment the white and the blue.  For some reason I get lag/bs when I'm wearing the white kit?!

    Quote from blue_eddie >>

    I played the DKT this week, won it on first attempt which was nice.

    I packed FUT Birthday Emenike, so nothing great there.

     

    I notice no one on my friends list played FUT Champs last weekend.

    I think I 'could' have finally finished elite, but just couldn't be bothered to play all the games.

     

    I wonder if anything will happen at the end of FUT Champs. E.G. Will there be an amazing prize pool in the last weekend to tempt people back in?

     

    Probably not, I wonder what will happen to SBCs after today's 'Best Of...SBCs' ends.

     

    The game is pretty dead huh? Confused

    At one stage during FUT Champs, I was matched up against someone, they backed out and I was matched up against them another 2-3 times in a row, which they kept backing out of course, must mean there is a shortage of players surely?

     

     

     i think the friends leaderboard is faulty Eddie as nobody is on mine either and we should show up on each others.
    How did you know it was the same guy? Did u get to the kits and they were the same pot something?

    It's all a waste of time if they don't sort out connection.

    What I've found to be weird this last week is that one of my two teams suffers from connection/scripting/bs and the other doesn't even though they are the same rating.

    The game is a joke at times.

     

    I'm at the point where I have two amazing teams and I don't care whether I win or lose.  I just want enjoyable games so I don't care if the game fucks me I just laugh it off.

     

    I think we've all got used to the types of bullshit and the way things work and just come to accept it even though it shouldn't be acceptable for a game to work how this one does.

     

    I played 3 games in the WL last night.  I only play a few now days if I can be bothered.

     

    Game 1:  My players are acting like I'd expect.  They are playing like their stats would suggest (ST Ronaldo etc.) and all doing what I'm telling them too.  I rip my opponent to bits and win 4-1.  I could have scored 10 and his goal was a very lucky header off a corner from a rare attack.

     

    Game 2:  I kick off and right from the start my TOTS Dembele doesn't feel right.  I keep passing to him but the passes are all short by 10 yards and/or he's backing away/not coming for the ball.  Once he's on the ball it's like he has no agility.  When performing normally I skip past players with him very easily as he's so fast and agile on the ball.  The rest of my team aren't acting like they should either but it was Dembele that stood out.  It's one of those games where my players are making lots of errors, running into each other etc. etc. you know the drill.  Despite not giving up I end up losing 4-1.  I go to check the team sheet as I always do, and then I remember he had a bronze LB - the one dealing with Dembele.  Hahahaha.

     

    Now, I know there are good  players out there who can beat you with lesser teams (I've seen Harry winning Div1 with GK's and 45 bronze players) which is fair enough.  BUT it's not that I was 'outplayed' it's just the way my players felt (especially Dembele) right from the start.  By this time of year you can tell instantly when something doesn't feel right.

     

    I can't keep blaming it on connection.  I really hope they fix 'connection' for 18 so we can know for sure whether these things are connection or not.

     

    Game 3:  My players are all acting as they should again and I batter somebody 4-0 and again it could have been 10.

     

    So, it leads me to think whether in game 1 and 3 my opponent's players were acting like mine were in game 2 and vice versa?  Was there just a big skill gap in games 1 and 3?  Was game 2 just connection and the Bronze LB amongst his super team was a coincidence?

     

    Regardless, I'm now convinced more than ever not to spend a penny on 18 other than buying the Icon edition.

    I like his hair it makes him stand out so you can see him going forward when you're on the opposite wing.

    I've used both.  Haven't used Brehme in a couple of months though.  I'm using Alonso currently in one of my teams and find him to be solid.

     

    From what I remember of Brehme I would say they play very similar.  Brehme would bomb down the flanks and turn up in attack but he had the pace to get back.

    I struggle to fit games in so it's either fitness cards or at the moment I'm just running two teams 88 rated as I don't care whether I win or lose.  I just want to enjoy the games.

    posted a message on The weekend league must be getting quiet

    I've played a few games today in the WL, I'm glad I haven't wasted my short spare time on it the last few weeks.  The gameplay is awful.

     

    You get about 1 in 5 games where you have full control over the result.  The rest of the time you're playing against connection and/or whatever you want to call the strangeness that goes on.

     

    I'm unsure whether to get 18 or not.  I really enjoyed building my teams but since I've played with my 'ultimate' teams I've realised how shit the game is.

     

    It teeters on brilliance but under delivers this inconsistent bag of shit that just makes you pull your hair out.

     

    One minute you slaughter a guy and then you get slaughtered.  It's 90% down to one of you having a good connection and the other having a delay.  If there's a large enough skill gap you're still in with a chance but these tend to be those most frustrating games where you lose by one goal.

     

    Those rare games where both of you have a good connection and you have a really good quality game are what keep me playing and I really hope that they sort the connection issues for 18.  I'll buy the Icon edition but if you still have these same issues I'll throw it straight in the bin.

    There must be a reason the 98ST Ron is 4 mill on Xbox compared to his 96 only being 1.5.

     

    I had his 97LW which was good compared to his NIF, then I had his 95ST for only a dozen games and have yet to play his 96ST as I've bought him whilst on holiday.

    I just got a msg when logging in to the app on my phone that I've qualified for the weekend league from being in the top 25% from the 24th to 28th.

     

    The thing is I'm on holiday and only played 3 games on the Monday lol they must be desperate.

    I just paid 340k for Dr gea.  Haven't played him yet.

     

    I now have finished with my teams and have 400k spare.

     

    The only possible improvement I could make now is an upgrade from 96 ST Ron to 98 AT Ron but there's a 2mil+ difference.  Annoying as that's about how much I lost in the crash.

    Quote from blue_eddie >>

    Looking further at Gullit, is it just because he is so rare he is over priced?

    I know he is probably one of the rarest players in the game, probably more rare than Ronaldo and Messi?

    Pele could be the only 'rarer' player.

     

    To sum up, you have Gullit on 1.5 million coins. He has H/M workrates, so in theory is more attacking minded.

    Other expensive CAM/CM/CDM players....

     

    Hero Messi - who is 2 million and is probably 'more rare' than Gullit, because he wasn't available for long, but he is a different type of player to Gullit really, so won't really compare him to Gullit.

     

    You then have 92 Pogba - who is 920k

    TOTS Nainggolan who is around 900k - but is better than Gullit in EVERY STAT (except penalties, curve and free kick accuracy).

    Then you have 91 Vidal, TOTS De Bruyne, TOTS Thiago and TOTS Kante following them.


    Usually, coin price is a very, very good judge on how good and influencial a player is in the game, so in theory, CAM/CM/CDMs, these are the best players in the game, without a shadow of a doubt.

     

    There is definitely something special about Pogba in the game, I would like to try his 92 rated card, but will not be able to afford it unless I sell players.

     

    All I can do is hope I get a TOTS Lacazette (and TOTS De Gea) from monthly rewards (very much doubt I'll get either) and free up some coins to purchase Gullit or a special Pogba card with.

     

    Still, I'd rather not pack anyone top rate this year as it is pretty much 'over' - I would rather have a good card from Webstart next year lol Smile

     

     I've tried Vieira and Gullit each for one WL each.  Vieira was slugish even with shadow and a big let down and at the time there weren't many mids with 80+ pace.
    Gullit was dissapointing too and i got abuse after half my games when i had him.
    I think it's down to 'presence' and the ability to instantly pick him out on the pitch.  I find if I've built an amazing team but two players look alike I don't play as well as a lesser team with players that stand out.  One thing you notice about OP players is that they stand out on the pitch.  I know I can instantly recognise Kante, Smalling, Martial, Sanches etc.  It makes a huge difference in attack knowing whos on the ball before they receive it and you can position everybody so much bettet when defending when you know who is who at a glance.
    To me Casemiro and Ronaldo look the same at a glance and the amount of times Casemiro turned up inside the box and i tried to do a nice or a shot thinking it was Ron cost me.
    All the legends have the same boots on and so if they have the same colour hair it slows down your abilities.
    I think this is a big factor in choosing your 'end' team.
