Yes! You can play Squad Battles (new game mode) added by EA and then based on your performance you will get rewards on Sunday. Rewards are decent atleast the first few weeks. Checkout youtube there are plenty of videos on it. Besides that just do some trading and investing to build your coins. They also have daily and weekly objectives and also SBCs (Squad Building Challenges). Again youtube is your friend. Also, as you keep playing check the catalog as you can get these coin boosts. So basically answer to your question...yes you can make a good squad without having to spend money :-)

If u keep Herera, then think about Ramos and Alba in there.
They could be a bit better than Rudi and Rose.
and the ones u mentioned.
Martial, Mbape, Dembele
Herera, Baka, Pogba
Alba, Ramos, Bailly, Valencia
This could be one idea...Ohh wow that is different. Didn't' think of that, thank you! I still mostly play offline. I had Dembele but he did not do anything for me. I can see how he does good online because might be easier to dribble past defenders. Against AI I struggled. As for MBappe, have you used him?

So guys since I've been playing FUT I always wanted to track the performance of the players. You see the stats at the end of each game and have access to assists and goals scored by a player in player data but I don't remember how my players are performing game to game. So couple of weeks ago I started writing down stats after every game haha yes call me crazy. One main stat being the rating in the game. But it was quite tedious to every time enter data in an excel sheet. So I said F this I'm going to create a quick application so data entry and calculations and stuff is easier. I am a programmer/web developer so I started working on this couple of days ago. Am I really the only one who cares? Not sure how long it will take me to put something together but I'm on it.

I have morata otw is amazing keep him he will get more ifs and price will go up more he is 500 with hype if he get another if he will go to 650 or more ,im trying to buy mbape otw cuz lacazette looks amazing but arsenal is not playing him the way they shouldThat is what I'm thinking eventually his price should go up. Hmm by the way he is not 500 right now. I checked earlier and he was around 400. Just double checked and last one went for 406 k. By the way that is on PS4. And yes you are right, he is amazing :-)

Good for you! Congrats! Doesn't workout the same way for everyone. i did all those plus marquee matchups and my highest rated players were , Dele Ali, Rashford and Mkhitaryan. Still good but altogether they are worth around 130k. I mean it takes time and effort to do those.

Ofcourse everyone has dealt with this bullshit in the past and I have played enough Fifa 18 especially offline (Squad Battles) to say that it is all still there. And I believe if it is in one mode it will be in all modes.

I find myself laughing a lot. The blatant cheating is absurd. I'll win 4-0 on WC and lose on Semi pro. Complete joke.
Squad battles reminded me of the universal EA FIFA truth: The game has 21 players, I have 1. The house always wins.
I finished in Elite 2 and found myself regretting buying the game. I gave it an earnest chance and came back on this forum to see if anyone else had noticed the arcade nature of the game. It's a joke. If it's not going to play like WC or Pro don't call it that. It's simple. Why call it that and then pretend it has anything to do with chemistry.haha well I feel the AI cheating has gone up this week. I lost two leads to AI..all headers and rebound goals. I just tweeted this, they should add that in there...
Aug 16, 2017Posted in: General Discussion
Yup the defending worries me, you can leave the defenders in dust with a simple change in direction, it's crazy. I hated how overpowered defenders were in Fifa 17 but damn this is the total opposite. EA needs to balance this out.

Ovvy just did 40/40, he won a game 9-8 where all but 1 goal was from a kick off glitch. You've never conceded one though ehNo, 500 games and he never conceded ONE kickoff goal, while millions of people acknowledge the problem... But hey, that's why he's called FIFAGod amongst his friends..
Mar 3, 2017Helterskelta posted a message on Scripting vs Handicapping and when it is good or notPosted in: General Discussion
And when people say, if it wasnt scripted and the good players just won all the time, they would lose interest and stop playing.
No...the players that kept losing because ea wasnt giving them a hand, would stop playing.
That is the sole reason why it is so heavily implemented $$$

You are all Sheep…
It’s like groundhogs day playing this game. Every match is the same, no originality. It’s so rare to come up against an original hybrid squad. My buddy was showing me his squad over the weekend. He pulled up the app beaming with pride, I thought “Wow, how did you come up with that…” (As he searches Futhead for BPL, sorts by pace). I mean Bailly and Smalling in the back, holy cow, brilliant! Musa up top, running a 4-3-2-1... (Someone reading this is laughing at themselves inside… yes, you know you are a c*nty sheep)
FYI, if you are running that type of squad, I guarantee I know your play style… Pressure for days, PTB from the first minute on, Counter, Counter, Through Ball, Dab, Replay, repeat. Sheep.
Don’t even get me started on the game play. I can tell from the kick off what type of game it’s going to be. My players will run like they have weights on their ankles and chutes on their backs, or I have 11 Usain Bolts. Hey EA, why do you feel the need to interfere in the match sliders? Can the community just play each other on their own merits please? If I get my a$$ kicked 15 times in a row, why do you care, please don’t “assist” me in my next match, I am a big boy, I can take it from here… It’s just a video game.
And if you believe any of EA’s BS about this game you are naive. Chemistry may exist in theory, but it does not play a huge role in anything. I am a FUT founder, I’ve tried all sorts of teams, trust me. Right now I’m running a team with the highest rated chem. on any one player is 7, my team plays fine. Sheep.
For those of you that want to grind your way to Ronaldo the old fashioned way, I say to you good luck. CR7 will not change anything for you. If you suck with Pato up top in your La Liga squad, you will suck with CR7. If you can dominate with a budget squad, the same holds true for you, you will still be good. It’s all a scam, we are all sheep.
The WL was a great idea on paper, but is flawed in practice. The game play is the worst (see above, add 10 parts rage, 2 parts self-loathing). I have a decent W-L ratio, but who can manage 40 games every weekend, it’s just not realistic. Why not make it a monthly league? I know why, money!
What about SBC’s, how generous for EA to give us the opportunity to get an untradeable Hazard… SBC’s are EA’s way of controlling the market. Why do you think the POTM cards are all from the BPL, coincidence? Surely you have all noticed the market trend this year. Prices have never stayed this consistent, ever.
Everyone is holding their value, there will be no crash, this could be a good thing, but let’s just not be mindless sheep about it, at least go into an SBC and say “thank you sir, may I have another”!
We will never change any of this. We will keep buying FIFA, I will keep buying FIFA. It’s true we are all sheep, but deep down in the belly of the beast is that game we all love. It’s there, buried beneath all of the Pride. Envy. Wrath, Gluttony, Lust, Sloth and Greed… My advice to anyone that wants it, buy your squad now, fill it with players you enjoy, ignore chemistry, ignore the WL rewards and SBCs, ignore the dabs and replays. Try to remember why you bought the game and dedicated your hard earned time off in the first place, it’s a game. It’s meant to be a fun way to disconnect from the harsh reality that is real life.
So go ahead, Dab at me, run your unoriginal pace abuse BPL squad. Go ahead EA, try to bait me into spending money, into believing your lies. I’ll be sitting here playing the game with a smile, and when I am done, I’ll shut the system down, walk back upstairs…. and BAAAHHH like a sheep.

An interesting read.

Fuck the refs - the same tackle can be red, yellow, foul, and nothing foul at all.
Fuck the rebounds - they always go straight to the striker's feet, not to the side so he has to make an adjusment, not to his shoulder or chest or knee or thigh like IRL but always to his foot, and never, ever, God forbid, to one of your defenders.
Fuck the woodwork - I have never in my life seen a team hit the woodwork five times in one game. I hit the post/bar three times in a match about every 8 matches - I'd be great at the cross bar challenge!
Fuck the pace - how sterling gets beaten in a foot race with iniesta i'll never know.
Fuck the inconsistency - Debruyne can bring the ball down with ease one game, next game it takes him five touches to control a 2yrd pass. Silva can turn on a fifty pence piece, next game he moves like a steam liner
Fuck the negativity - let's all sit deep for 90 minutes knowing that a bullshit loose ball will send us through on goal
Fuck the loose balls - Love how an AI team mate can block your pass in the opposition's half and the resulting loose ball can shoot off forty yards into your half for a one on one. See also, balls from your opponent's half going out for a corner to them; balls that bounce off your shin, over three of your defenders to the offside strikers
Fuck the AI - shit one game, great the next. One match they make auto tackles, the next they do the mannequin challenge. One match they run into space, the next they run away from the ball, off the pitch and hide in the crowd. peek-a-boo. They also love getting in the way of passes/shots. So too do refs - did I say FUCK the refs?
Fuck the player switching - three players around the opposition, only one is in a good position to tackle, he is the one you'll never get. See also, air balls only - sometimes it will switch, sometimes not. Turn it onto full manual, the CPU should never switch your player automatically... switches your player automatically.
Fuck the physical - At a time when football is the least physical it has ever been (indeed, this season the prem has seen more penalties than ever due to a clamp down so hard that shirt pulling leads to penalties), EA decides to override fouls with physical play. You can smash your opponent face in the ground and it's perfectly acceptable.
Fuck the button delay - clear, in open space and you press shoot... nothing... nothing... nothing... come on already shoot... shoot God damn you... shoot you motherfu... oh, too late, you've lost the ball.
Fuck the dab - you know
Ahh, I feel better now, like having a big wank.
There's a lot more, maybe I'll do a part 2 but these are just some of the things I have found particularly irritating so far in 17. I'll simply leave with this, I like to pass it about and create nice chances so that when I watch back I can savour the goals I've scored. I've come up against a barrage of utlra d/counter attacking sides who have maybe 3 chances to my fifteen, 40% possession to my 60% and yet walk away with a 2-0 win. Today I'd had enough. I switch to ultra d/counter attack and won 3-0. At the end of the game I'd had 5 shots to my opponents 12 and basically soaked up pressure all game. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

SIck of this fucking scripting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One win from the title, 1-0 20 shots on goal lose 2-1, he has 10 men and I hit the woodwork three times. Anyone that doesn't believe in scripting is a moron. Thank you and goodnight

I'm sick of my players starting off great, going a goal up and then having my opponent seemingly press the "turn opposition players into six year olds" button and my passing going to crap and not being able to score from a yard out.
It's the mid-game momentum and player ability shifts generated by something other than the two human players that ruins the format for me. Whatever name you give it, whatever denials or explanations EA give out, it's definitely in the game.
Oct 23, 2016Posted in: General Discussion
Does this really exist? My players litterally do nothing when I don't switch to them. They just stand and look the other way.. Is there a button I have to press to get my defense working or what? I tried everything, but my players just won't move.Completely agree. Auto defending does not exist for my team. I switch to a midfielder and my defence just let the attacker walk through to score.

I just played a guy who spammed slide tackle every time I had the ball. He went through the back of me over 10 times, racked up 19 fouls, get 3 yellows, didn't get a single red. I hope to God they remove that shit in 17
Aug 15, 2016Posted in: FIFA 16 Discussion
Oh yeah, and let me just say, both his goals came from moments where my defence was sat on the halfway line. I play 4-4-2 diamond, CDM and all four defenders set to always stay back, I play with a cover system and low pressure and in that game I'd set to defensive mentality. How the fuck does that equate to my defence pushing up to the halfway line?
Team instructions and player instructions are complete bullshit. They work completely at random. Two games before I won 6-1 and my players were darting in and out like fishes, always someone available. That last game they stayed static. Why? No reason. Same instructions. This game is just random.
FIFA 17 can suck a dick
