    Well, players don't seem to have dropped as yet.  It might be a fortnight ago when they dipped the most is the lowest this year.

     

    I hope not as I have 2mill + saved up to spend.  Weirdly, I have almost the exact amount of coins as I did last BF.  Though I have a lot more players in my club than last year.

     You are right, 2 weeks ago was the low point and the time to buy. They good players will only rise from here in the short term imho - thats exactly what happened last year.

    Some people are morons when it comes Icons.  I've been watching Mattheus since yesterday afternoon.  I've obviously checked FUTBIN to see the lowest he's been etc.  He's been down to 1550000 and this morning and people were buying him at 1.6m one minute and letting him expire at 1.6m the next.  Some guy just bought one for 1.7m.   You get this a lot.  If they just sat it out for a couple of hours the people selling would lower the prices.  When there's less than half a dozen on the market at any time you just wait till one expires and look for it coming back on lower.

     

    I was thinking of getting him if he drops to 1.5m but might just wait out BF and see what happens.  On the other hand I could do a Ronaldo team for the same kind of money.

     Honestly get a CR7 team instead. Matthaus will be very good I have no doubts but he's not gonna win you matches like CR7 will. I had a team with ADP and Vieira in and while I enjoyed them, ronaldo is a true match winner. Suppose it depends what you want - if you want to have fun and try new players and icons then fine do that, if you want to give yourself the best possible chance of winning then get a ronaldo team.....

    Yeah I had him there when I was experimenting with different teams/systems early on. I started him at cm and switched him to my 3rd CB in game. He was very good there. He's got all the attributes, tall strong and good defensively he won't let you down there.

    Yeah I agree the gameplay is at an all time low at the moment. I'm not enjoying it either. It's so slow and delayed I preferred the fast ping pong passing from before, at least that was fun, this is actually painful at times. Add to this the adaptive difficulty in online play - basically we are all playing the AI more than our human opponents it's just so manipulated it's untrue, and that turns me right off the game.

     

    the worst thing you can do is dominate an opponent early on and go a couple of goals up. Once the computer makes the decision you are the better player and thus it's going to help the other player out, then you are fucked more often than not. How many times have you lost games that you were leading by 2 and 3 goals on this game when your opponent is shite. You can physically see the changes in the game and it leaves a bad taste in the mouth for me.

     

    think this will be my last FIFA too, each version is getting more and more manipulated and becoming less and less fun to play.

    Your teams are absolutely amazing, congrats.

     

    This is my team now, I can't complain, I did well in the market and with a little pack luck I was able to afford this.

    Now I have 300k coins and an Icon in the bench, that it was unthinkable at this stage of the game.

     

    Lets see how it goes in the upcoming WL.

     

     Thats a nice team by the way also. How are you finding Pogba? he was hit and miss for me, i didn't like his lack of pace, he felt quite slow at times, but then again everyone feels slow with the shocking EA servers at times..

    I think this is one of the best NIF teams you can get, the one i am using at the moment. I am in the process of upgrading my 7 chem Messi to the 94 CF version though so everyone would be on 10 chem then and it wouldn't be an all NIF squad...

    Yeah it was put back from last friday to this friday. Personally think it will be KDB. I have about 500K's worth of 'investments' (hopefully) sat in my transfer pile. Never done this before, but i thought KDB is nailed on so i thought i would steam in and buy some players. I have 39 Bernando Silva's bought for 2.5K, 3 IF Otamendi's for 45K, 5 Kompany's for 17K and randomly 20 Mustafi's are he's 84 rated and might be needed in some upcoiming SBC's and he was only 2.5K or something. Watch my investements bomb Smile w/ teeth

    Bale no question. He’s very good this year much better than 17. Mbappe is decent but not on Bales level. Best RF on the game for me.

    I was about to start a threat again about this this morning, but I felt I had complained enough. The same thing as last year for me too. Oddly too I play last night, got 11 wins and 4 losses, enjoyed every game, even the losses I laugh at my mistakes and try harder when getting outplayed. Today I'm playing with a square ball once again, and already lost 6 games, I'm sure if I keep playing I will just keep losing, I'm going to try for Elite 1 in Squad Battles instead.

    Amazing one day with people rage quitting left right and centre as you destroy your opponents. And shocking the next day as you battle with the delay and slow players. Makes absolutely no sense. You are playing the computer not your human opponent in the WL. You will only notice this if you are showing elite form early on. Otherwise if you are WLWLW you might think there’s nothing going on as the game doesn’t need to intervene as they want everyone to finish with around 20 wins. Keeps more people playing and the rewards are usually shit which suits EA.

    Honestly the WL is the most bent, rigged piece of shit you will ever come across. As some have said above knock it on the head and do yourself a massive favour. 

     

    I quit in 17 and made the mistake of returning to it this year. So far this year it’s played out EXACTLY the same. 

     

    I start on Friday and I win 85-90% of my first 15 games. The game plays smooth, my players react as they should and I actually quite enjoy it.

    on Saturday I boot up the game and I get a massive input delay. My players lose all speed and agility and my teams AI is non existent while my opponents players zip around the pitch,  and I feel like I’m in a fight with one hand tied behind my back. I put this down to lag and delay and shocking servers for a long time. However last Saturday I wanted to test the theory and I put the game on at 3am UK time to see if I could beat the lag. The truth is the game played out as always on a Saturday (after a successful Friday) and I got the delays and slow players and losses that go with it.

     

    so basically it makes no difference what team you use, when you play, if you are showing elite form the game will kick in and slow you down (quite literally). Only the best will overcome this bollocks. So it’s making me think about the point of playing Fifa. So I’m not going to the WL because it’s scripted and bent, no point really in getting better players, rewards, packs etc because whether you win or lose is LARGELY down to whether the game is with you or against you in this game mode. Let’s face it the game is not difficult is it. Pressing a few buttons in sequence at the right time. 

     

    Addaptive diffuculty and spreading the wins around for the noobs has always been there in Fifa but this year it’s worse than ever. One thing I will say is that this will be my last FIFA for purely the reasons stated above...

    Dont bother dude. This is the worst FIFA in 3 years in terms of gameplay IMO.

    Games are so repetitive... never been so bored playing FIFA.

    Its all down to what EA decides, interceptions etc. Theres no need to cut passing lanes, the ball always go through my legs. Only intercept when they decide to make one of my player pop up out of nowhere.

    Players have no physic. You cant hold the ball for long when an opponents near you. I am used to play a possession game but it simply leads nowhere. I pass around the box with no space for a shoot or anything only to get a 3 passes counter attack against me... Ive seen this game a 100 times already. Just like Bakayoko in my opponent squad lol.

    Less fun FIFA ever made if you ask me, and nowhere near real football.

     

    So when you add the "bad luck" factor to the boreness I just want to throw up.

    One game it went the other way around though but still it feels completely pathetic: I was 1-4 down and making passes between my keeper and defender (thats how bored I was) then Ive tried to atrack again. Scored. 2-4, 3-4, 4-4, 5-4 in about 20min. As I said... pathetic.

    Yeah the rubber banding in this game is simply outrageous. When you go 2-0 up you can physically feel the game go against you and you pretty much always concede next. I know what’s coming when I’m 2 up so I concentrate hard but the ball always ends up in my net. Pretty disgusting game manipulation to keep everyone playing. I have never got so stressed or raged as much at a game. Defending is truely horrible and I’ve never felt less in control of a game. When you don’t have the ball it’s like been on a roller coaster you cannot control....

    Let me know how he is, as I was looking at him. Either him or baby Vieira but he’s gonna cost me 1.1 million which would mean rinsing all my coins plus quite a few OTW investment cards I have. That Blanc looks decent though....
