    Did a couple more SBCs and pulled Carvajal, Christensen, Lucas Vazquez (that perfect link with Carvajal), Morgan Schneiderlin, and Javier Hernandez (2017/2018 Fantrax king).

    Not spectacular but a decent bunch of players that fit into my Pack Only team. If I can squeeze out a Spanish striker and CM I can make a pretty decent Spanish core, as I've got Callejon too.

    These offline Squad Challenges are fun too, and already given me good rewards (12k for next to nothing).

    I've done 4 & 1/2 SBCs and I'm sitting on 50k.

    Kept all bronze players and contracts I've packed, sold everything else bar that Sorloth TOTW card.

    Nice one, bet he's amazing in this game.

    First impressions are in terms of Fifa this might be the best one since the glory days of 09-13. Poor players are getting punished for being poor, not as much bullshit, goalkeepers nerfed, defending is difficult, skilling is difficult (but works, that's the crucial difference from 17), goals are pretty varied. You can cross, you can finesse, you can long shot or you can power drive. Powerful strikers are as viable as fast ones.

    Had a very productive Fifa day today. I finished all the Marquee Matchups, and outstanding SBCs that I could do. Packed myself Cavani and Lemar in the same pack, and Lallana in another. Cavani is a fucking monster, used a Hunter chem card I packed way earlier just for him, and he tears teams apart at this point. So I spent a good twenty minutes looking at all my players and trying to fit them into a system. Right now my team looks like this:

    GK: Baumann - 10 chem
    LB: Digne - 7 chem
    CB: Rudiger - 8 chem
    CB: Sule - 10 chem
    RB: Carvajal - 10 chem
    CM: Schneiderlin - 8 chem
    CM: Weigl - 8 chem
    CAM: Lallana - 8 chem
    LW: Lemar - 10 chem
    ST: Cavani - 7 chem
    RW: Vasquez - 10 chem

    Overall chem 98

    With Keita, Smalling, Benteke and Callejon on the bench as super subs. Unfortunately Smalling is just not up to his 2017 godly ability, and he's been shafted out for my new toy, Rudiger, who is an absolute monster and provides a valuable link to Sule (another fantastic defender I packed).

    Ideally I'll pack someone like Mendy to get Rudiger, Schneiderlin and the LB on max chem, and Ben Arfa to link with Cavani. And if I could squeeze a RM Isco to replace Vasquez I would be so happy.

    After a few hours of practicing, I decided to try my hand online and managed to qualify for the Weekend League at the very first attempt. There's not many players that have great teams from what I saw, and I had a top tier striker in Cavani so I ran rampant. Lemar is amazing on LW too. And now I have an IRL job where I have weekends off. God help me.

    Up to 80k from selling players for MM, and I'm tempted to sell Cech for more coins, but as this is a pack only run I feel I should hold on to as many top tier players as I can.

    I'm playing 5-2-3

    GK - Karnezis
    RWB - Aurier
    RCB - Vertonghen
    CCB - Cahill
    LCB - Sanchez
    LWB - Shaw
    LCM - Gueye
    RCM - Dembele
    RW - Salah (going to sell) / Bernardo Silva (going to sell)
    ST - Ibra
    LW - Izquierdo

    Have 130K ITB with 200 players still to sell. Sold Ozil for 35K which is good.

    Re: FIFA 18 Discussion Thread

    I spent an extra 50 quid or so on Packs on release day yesterday, and got literally jack shit. Some discard IF's, a Sterling and a Gabi Jesus from around 40 packs including the starting ones and the preorder ones. I built myself a very very decent Prem Team to start, but have sold em all today because the prices have shot up and I had 5 City players. Ended up with about 200k for a starting squad.

    Really really pissed off at the lack of Chinese league, I was gunna build a CSL superstar team but never mind. Gunna revert to my standard Brazil starting team while I sit and collect coins for big Al.

    Currently rocking a 5-2-2-1, if the GK can't save I may as well pack the defence to block the shot.

    GK: Ederson (83)
    CB: Miranda (86)
    CB: David Luiz (86)
    CB: Thiago Silva (88)
    RWB: Dani Alves (84)
    LWB: Alex Sandro (86)
    CM: Casemiro (85)
    CM: Fabinho (83)
    LW: Douglas Costa (82) That juicy link with Sandro tho
    RW: Willian (84)
    ST: Gabriel Jesus (81)

    Bench is pretty dire, but I'm having good success with Paulinho. May sub him in for Fabinho - I'm a massive fan of the guy anyway he was so so good for Guangzhou

    Babel, one of the top scorers for us in Europe has the lower FUT rating than garbage like H.Ali Kaldirim...

    I’ve just completed my 5th SBC and now have 125k coins.

    Mental, especially as I’ve still not pre-ordered this game

    Re: FIFA 18 Discussion Thread

    Cavani is god. Because people can't defend and goalkeepers are total melts, if you give the ball to him in the 18 yard box he just scores regardless of how many bodies are in the way.

    Schneiderlin is incredible too, highly recommended for a terrific Premier League team. He's tall and breaks up attacks for days. Him, Rudiger and Cavani are my favourite players so far.


    Been doing Squad Battles and got up to Elite 1 already. Doubt I'll get in to top 100, but it's nice to get so high up so easily. Offline AI is fantastic this year and it feels very fun to play. Past Fifas the AI was too possession based and it made every game a slog, now they're much more incisive and attacking. Currently rocking some amazing tight games on Legendary difficulty.

    Double post.

    Gold Upgrades OP.

    Just bagged myself a Courtois for that perfect link with Rudiger. For those that read this thread last year, I made no secret that I thought Courtois was the best keeper in the game so to have myself a 1st owner untradeable one is amazing

    Now I can sell Cech too, since I'll never use him again

    Dunno if this is in FIFA, but one thing I hate about PES atm is that they set the line ups both online to whatever the club played in their previous game, which means about 75% of premier league clubs now have a default formation of 3 CBs, 2 WB formation which I hate playing with so I always have to change formation almost every game I'm playing now.

    Nah in Fifa you set your custom tactics and it saves permanently.

    Wasn't always like this, it only got changed last edition but it's a welcome addition.
