    I would be cautions on making any investments at this point with Lunar New Year around a few days away. I'd also recommend selling into the hype rather than trying to sell after someone get's upgraded.

    So, I know the feeling and completely understand your frustration. This game is broken in some aspects, but I found this video very helpful with attacking and defending: https://youtu.be/o6UMHuX3iTw. It's a 2 part video series where the youtuber discusses attacking and defending techniques that most others don't talk about. For example LB/RB pushing up too far and switching with CM/LCAM. In this situation the LCAM will drop back to cover the LB's position keeping your LB up front and your offense LCAM back to defend. Before this video I didn't pay much attention to these details and noticed a big difference when I slowed down and started looking at the whole picture. These type of small things can make a big difference in such close matches and most of the time it's not something the average player considers. I would highly suggest checking out both video's part 1 and 2. He also goes over some simple skill moves he useses and why he used them. On offense he discusses creating space and exploiting that space. Hopefully, it helps. Goodluck!

    posted a message on ST Bale or 95 Neymar??

    I prefer the 4312 formation over the 4321, but that might be my playstyle or my team. I think he can work great in either formation. It depends on your play style and skilling ability. I think if you are good with skills and like fast play counter attacks go with 4321. If you prefer playing with a CAM and 1-2 passes than I would suggest 4312.

    posted a message on ST Bale or 95 Neymar??

    In my Opinion Bale is not worth the million coin upgrade for first IF. If he was RF/RW than his price would be closer to 700-800k. If I was you I would go with Neymar due to 5* WF and 5* Skill moves. That alone makes him more valuable than Bale imo. I've only used Bale in drafts so far, and was considering buying him before I used him in my last draft. I just didn't notice a huge difference from his regular card which I've used for 300+ games this year.

    posted a message on SBC Vieira - Worth It?

    I recently completed the Vieira SBC, because I had the coins and untradable players in my Club. My team needed one more Midfielder to be complete IMO. I've played around 20 games with him so far 15 or so in WL and the other 5 in online divisions. Is he worth the Price?

    So far... Absolutely, but it's also hard to say on such a small sample. People underestimate the value of height this year and his size/pace/strength makes my midfield considerably better. The main reason I decided to do the Vieira SBC now was because I have the rest of my team pretty much set.

    I have Henry at striker paired with Griezmann (Will upgrade eventually), Del Piero at CAM, Petit LCM, IF Nainggolan RCM (untradable from SBC), Vieira CDM, Sandro LB, Chiellini CB, Ferdinand CB, Florenzi RB.

    I was able to trade in Overmars and spend 1.6 million to get Vieira which to me is a steal compared to the price he is on the market. I don't expect him to score a lot of goals, but I do expect him to help start my buildups and control the defense. Both of which he is fantastic at. He has good pace, great defending, and his passing is amazing. I wouldn't have done Vieira as my first icon, but I don't think you could have a better midfielder to build your team around. I spend alot of my time trading and playing the market so to me Vieira was worth every penny.  Hopefully, he starts to play well for you and you fell the same. Goodluck!

    posted a message on Prime Henry SBC

    Mascherano for Barcelona is I think 3k right now and assuming Barcelona will be 85/86 rated he will have to be used. His price should shoot up to 10k once the league hits. If it hits this friday that's a potential huge pay day. The market will have a huge crash for Lunar New year which is only 9 days away. It typically lasts a week and if like last year CR7 dropped 200k. So keep that in mind. Good luck!

    posted a message on Need Some Advice About WL - Squad Rating (Handicap)

    Yea, basically what changing said. Just play and have fun. I've fluctuated my team rating from 84-88 and it doesn't really make a difference. You will face really good players with low rated teams and really good players with high rated teams. Might as well put yourself in the best position to win. I go on winning streaks and I go on losing streaks, but usually take a break if I loose twice in a row. At this point I just play 15-20 games per weekend, because the rewards aren't werent the effort or the time. Once I started playing to have fun and stopped worrying about having to win every game I started to get more wins. last weekend I finished 16-6 and had a good time. Good luck this weekend and defiantly play Vieira. I just got his prime and he is a beast!

    if you play on PS4 you can add me and play with my team to see if you like Del Piero. Just his shoot me a friend request: Foolishmrcouch. This is current team: https://www.futbin.com//18/squad/3450700. Besides Blanc, sold him for some investments and will probably buy back this weekend.

    I'm sorry I might not have been clear in my message. I wasn't trying to say trade in Rui Costa for Del Piero just that is what I had done. If I were to do it again I would have kept Rui Costa due to his strength. Del Piero is a great CAM, but lacks the strength needed to play CM like Rui Costa. Overmars will most likely go into an SBC if do another, but I was able to complete his SBC for 65k with untradeables during TOTW. If you are dead set on knocking out another SBC and the choice is narrowed down between those 3, Ronaldinho will make the biggest difference IMO, followed by Vieira, then Matthaus.

    I'm not sure if any of the SBC's are worth the 2+ million price tag. I've done Henry, Ferdinand, Petit, Costa, Del Piero, Overmars, and Schmeichel. I traded in Costa for Del Piero and Schmeichel for Henry (He saved me about 600-700k). Don't get me wrong Henry is a great ST, but M/M workrates is annoying at ST. Del Piero is an amazing CAM and probably my favorite player. If I could do it over again I would save my coins to buy players off the market. If you are going to do an SBC I would suggest it to be for a player you know you will keep for the rest of the year and someone that is a difference maker. The only person IMO that fits that bill would be Ronaldinho, but for the price of his SBC you can buy so many other players. I did notice a huge difference upgrading to Del Piero from Rui Costa so might want to consider his SBC. This is just my opinion and hope it helps. Good luck!
