    Have you tried Sokratis?  He was good last year.

    No, but mainly because of his price. I sold IF Ginter for 24K minutes after 2IF was announced and then bought 2IF for 24k. Not really a need to buy a (currently) 20K Sokratis, IMO.

    Maybe if you select 'legendary' it updates all the opponents team to estimated card values, e.g. a bronze player on legendary mode with full chemistry could go from 62 rated to 85 rated? With the modifiers in place.
     
    (Not "shooting the messenger," but...)
    If this is what happens, it's precisely what I keep saying shouldn't happen. What's the point of having Gold/Silver/Bronze and ratings on cards if they can play like a card 20 rating points higher? If you can buy a Yoon Bit Garam and have him play like Pogba in-game, why would anyone ever buy Pogba? If that's the limitation from a human perspective, changing that limitation for the CPU is flat-out bullshit.
    Here's how I think EA needs to make difficulty apply in-game (percentages are just shown as an example).
    Ultimate: 100% of player attribute ratings + whatever
    Legendary: 100% MAX
    World Class: 90%
    Professional: 80%
    Semi-Pro: 60%
    Amateur: 40%
    Beginner: 20%
    Now, if you want to add Chemistry Style Card to get boosts from those numbers, so be it. We can debate whether or not the Chemistry boosts are ridiculous or not later on.

    2IF Ginter, Vogt, and Salif Sane, in that order, for me. I have an Anchor on Ginter and the other two have Sentinel. Tall, strong, and a good Reactions rating are what I look for in a CB. To be fair, I haven't tried anyone with a High AWR and can't compare them. Brooks seems intriguing, but I also haven't used him yet for any length of time (10+ games). Brooks' IF last year was quite nice.

    I lost to the Bayern featured squad 1-3, but just had my best "opening 5gms" total this year, all on Legendary...10582. Nice to know I'm still 4K worse than the #1 person in the world.

     

    GOKU FC 68/55: W 9-0 (2651pts)

    Milano SC 72/68: W 7-0 (2653pts)

    AS Maintal 85/68: W 2-1 (1868pts)

    MANI FC 83/100: W 3-2 (2010pts)

    Seriously, EA. I go from just changing the numbers back, to checking my SB ranking, and back to the squad to see the numbers have all changed again. Fix your shit!

     

    And it only changes your starters. The subs and reserves aren't affected unless they have a number 1-11 (which the starters automatically get assigned when the glitch/code fucks up).

    1. How many times do I have to change the kit numbers in FUT? It seems to be 5x/day this week. Seems a simple fix.

     

    2. When I'm controlling a guy chasing down a CPU dribbler, why does my AI defender run along side of the CPU dribbler like he's just there to hand him a drink of water along the way? Can't he make a play on the ball? Maybe do something to try to win the ball? Setting my Aggression settings don't mean a thing in this regard. He'll never try to win the ball or close down the CPU dribbler to make him change direction.

     

    3. Conversely, CPU defenders tag-team my dribbler in the perfect position (almost) every time. You can't skill around one because the other is right there to take the ball as soon as you do.

     

    4. Why is it I can only shield the ball successfully maybe 10% of the time, but some Bronze ST can keep Boateng at bay with ease every time?

     

    5. Speaking of Bronze, no difficulty makes a Bronze player CR7.

     

    6. Speaking of difficulty, why is it the difficulty of "Weekend League" SBs has the consistency of rice pudding that's been left out in the summer heat for 2 days?

     

    7. Controllers should have a shock setting like an invisible fence dog collar that I can enable when I try to purchase FP. I finally caved this year with the Ultimate Packs this weekend. I am teh disappoint.

     

    8. However, if anyone needs a NIF Mustafi on PS4, let me know. I have 406 of them.

     

    9. STOP THE BOTS!!! My screen is still showing 59mins 55secs to 1hr and yet the auction has ended.

     

    10. Is there any reason why my referees in Offline Seasons have heads and bodies that aren't the same color? My favorite so far has been a black head and a gray body.

     

    11. Referee kit clashing...said thousands of times, no fix.

     

    12. This isn't "real life." This is a video game. If you can program it to know by thousandths of an inch that my guy is offside, you can program it to make the referee see a sweeping tackle from behind that takes out both of my player's legs and injures him...and give him a straight red.

     

    13. Player has Upper Body injured for 3gms.

    All Injuries (+2) + 50% Physio Bonus = Player injured for 1gm.

    Upper Body (+2) + 50% Physio Bonus = Player healthy.

    No, OTW are only upgraded via IFs and potentially Winter Upgrades. PTG are upgraded by everything BUT TOTY and TOTS. Someone check me on that, but that's my understanding.

    Also, despite being a single player mode SB is affected by connection/button delay.  It's not very often but sometimes you get very sluggish games and I often can't score in these so I'm suspecting I have a bit of delay and obviously, the cpu can't suffer button delay.

    ^^^Or part of what I call "Weekend League SB."^^^
    Games I play Saturday and Sunday feel sped up, compared to the odd game during the week where I'll literally have the one second freeze during gameplay. I'll also be damned if the weekday Legendary is the same as weekend Legendary. IMO, it's way harder on the weekend.

    Just played the easiest one first, won 4-0. Then I played the hardest one, won 1-0. Two games left before the refresh later today.

     

    tl;dr I have no idea WTF goes on in this mode from week to week or day to day.

    Where it says 'SB uses your opponent's chemistry...'  Doesn't that mean that if your opponent has 50 chemistry then your team plays on 50 chemistry?  Otherwise, why would they need to write anything?  They wouldn't write 'SB uses your opponent's players...'.  We all know what chemistry is and would always assume that chemistry is being used so I can only think the reason those shit chemistry games are harder sometimes is that you're using their chemistry.

     

     

    Jesus! I'm not saying you're wrong, but then, if that's true, what's the point of ever getting your own team to 100 CHEM? EA would have to admit they put a feature in the game that does absolutely nothing.

    I always play the highest-rated, 100 CHEM team first, and then go down in OVR/CHEM from there. It usually works out that I win 3, if not all 4; however, I went 1-2 LOSS, 0-3 LOSS, 3-4 LOSS, 3-1 WIN yesterday doing that. Since you can't save video of bullshit, I took a vid with my phone of a blatant red from Ramos 1min in that not only didn't get any card whatsoever, but it also knocked my PTG Origi out of the game. I'd love to collect all the bullshit and post them on YT and force EA to address it (with the hopefully enormous attention they'd get Wink ).

    As far as I know/remember, chemistry is solely based upon the player's starting number. Any changes post kickoff do not affect chemistry.
