    posted a message on Disconnects in squad battles!

    I don't know if it makes a difference but last year during one of the glitch weekends where people were getting kicked off and a loss, it was discovered that if you never went back to the console's main menu/desktop once you'd booted up FIFA it stopped it happening.

     

    So far in 18, I've been doing the same thing.  I've only had 1 disconnect in all 18 and I'd coincidently been back to my Xbox's home screen.

     

    I'll forever do this just incase.  This might have only worked for that one weekend but it's worth a shot.

    I've been wondering the same thing.

     

    What was the frequency last year?

    Have you tried Sokratis?  He was good last year.

    If the opponent's Ronaldo is on 4 chemistry you won't notice but if YOUR team is suddenly playing on low chemistry you'd notice.

     

    I can't make my mind up but all I can say is that I fair much better vs higher rated teams on 100 chemistry than I do against any teams that have low chemistry and I do better vs the higher rated teams than I do the bronze benched ones if it's the same players on the pitch.

     

    EA move the sliders up for the opponent on Legendary but I have a cynical suspicion that they move the sliders down for your team if the opponent has a low chemistry and/or a low rating.  If they have a low rating because the players are low rated you won't notice much but if they have high rated/good players and a full bronze bench it seems harder to me.

    posted a message on Danny Rose vs Alaba

    I've tried most of them, I found Alba to be really poor other than his speed and Sandro not a big enough improvement over Lukaku to warrant the price.  The only full back I have used that I feel is really good is Valencia, if I could clone him but with a left foot that would be ideal.

     

    My back line atm is TOTGS Kimmich - Rudiger - Boateng - Alaba.  I can either have Vidal or Goretzka in the RCM long term and at the moment I'm playing Rudiger on the right with Goretzka. And then Boateng and Alaba on the left.  I'm thinking whether or not to sell Alaba and have Rose instead and have Rudiger on the left.

     

    I need to forget SB's and focus on online really to properly see who's the best.

    After Boateng, who is the best CB in the Bundesliga and why?

     

    I've tried Hummels for a few games in SB on Legendary and he was awful and cost me goals.

     

    I tried Toprak for a few games and he seemed OP,

     

    I need somebody who is better than Rudiger in game.

    posted a message on Danny Rose vs Alaba

    Most people would say Alaba is one of the best LB on the game but is he clearly better than Rose in game?

     

    Rose is one of those players that I struggle against, last year he always had my Best in his pocket and he's the same this year vs me.  He's everywhere on the pitch like a rash and he seems super fast and strong.

    posted a message on IF Goretzka vs NIF Vidal

    Has anybody used these two extensively?  Which is better as a LCM or RCM?  For chemistry reasons Goretzka would fit my team better but will I notice a difference over his NIF?

    Man that Bayern squad was sick.  Is there a better team on all of FUT?

     

    I managed to beat it 3-2 on legendary with some serious momentum on my side, apart from their two goals which were ridiculous.

    posted a message on Prime SBC's

    I've watched Gorilla and Tass using Henry at RCM, listening to what they say the RCM is the one that ends up getting forward more than the other CM's, so maybe putting Bergkamp on the right rather than central will improve him?

     

    Have any of you done the Russian League SBC?  I did that last week and Promes is now my super sub instead of Alessandrini who I sold for 60k on Friday.  Promes has better finishing stats and 88 shot power which is still pretty high compared to Alessandrini's 91.  He also has high vision and passing and better ball control, dribbling and also better stamina.  I also use Younes who's again very similar to the other two but has better vision, passing and ball control than Alessandrini.

     

    I did the Hernandez Prime SBC last week to get chemistry with the intention of having him instead of Suarez between Bale and Ronaldo in the future but I may not get those latter two anymore.

     

    I've been playing this up till today:

    Fahrmann

    Piszcek - Boateng - Rudiger - Schmelzer

    Hector - Can - Goretzka

    Bellarin - Hernandez - Younes

     

    I then swtich to 4-1-2-1-2 with Younes at Cam and Promes on for Bellerin up front.  I like this team so I've begun upgrading.

     

    I'm now aiming for this:

     

    https://www.futbin.com/18/squad/2183403

     

    I happened to pack Alaba in my SB rewards today which was sweet.  I've bought Gullit for 1350000 and TOTGS Kimmich for 120k this morning and have enough for Vieira but I'm waiting till he drops a little bit.  I'll then have 100k ish left to save up for Boateng and IF Goretzka.

     

    Once I have these I'll start saving for Pogba and IF's for my United team and Legend defenders for this team.

     

    Hernandez has had a few off games but out of 20 games on Legendary SB's he's got at least 4 hat tricks and more than a goal a game.

     

    The one mistake I made doing Hernandez was buying Kluivert for 610k (the cheapest that would be able to get the 4 chem at the time) and the realising I could have done the Costa SBC for around 540k that day and would have also had the reward packs Sad

     

    I like having something slightly different than a lot of people but also I like all the pretty colours Smile

    posted a message on What would you do with 3.4 million coins?

    I only got time for two attempts this week and went out in the semi both times.

     

    I decided to do the Hernandez Prime SBC which cost me around 750k using players I had.

     

    Now I'm thinking of the 86 versions of Vieira and Gullit.  Are there any better midfielders than them (obviously their higher cards)?

     

    Are legends always going to be better than special cards that have better stats on paper?

    Here's another clip that irritated the crap outta me:

    The thing is, when their keeper has the ball the game physically won't let your player within 5 yards.

    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.

     

    I was going to buy some FP to get 1 of those packs but luckily for me my wife and kids were home early and I couldn't get on in time.

    posted a message on Rio Ferdinand Prime Icon

    I think you'd be better off getting baby Vieira than Prime Petit.  The latter looks a bit better on paper but Vieira is always thought of as a game changer by all the pros/youtubers etc.

     

    Although I tried Vieira last year and he flopped for me.
