    Re: FIFA 18 Discussion Thread

    Current Team:

    GK: Courtois
    CB: Sule
    CB: Howedes
    CB: Rudiger
    LM: Son
    CM: Fabinho
    CM: Khedira
    RM: Cuadrado
    LF: Lemar
    ST: Cavani
    RF: Bernadeschi


    So far loving this formation and team. Tearing teams apart because of the overlapping wingers. So many options going forward and big midfielders in Fifa 18 feel much better than little fast fuckers like Kante. Khedira and Fabinho have been really good so far.

    Also tried Ultimate in a last attempt to get some more Squad Battle points. Tried it against a 74 rated team so I thought I'd be okay. Barely touched the ball. It's fucking ridiculous. I'll stick to Legendary

    My team is

    Lecoimte

    Rafael
    Kimpembe
    Jemerson
    Dalbert (Alex Sandro mark II)

    Malcolm
    Ganso
    Joao Pedro
    Calhanoglu/Pjaca

    Farias (silver)
    Luiz Adriano

    -----

    Plenty of room to improve but my team has won 5/6 online so far.

    Don't buy packs, ever. The reward just isn't worth it even with moderate pack luck.

    It's easier than ever to make coins, especially with squad battles, your FUT coin boosts, SBCs and (if you get really good) the Weekend League. With the coins make your dream team.

    Can't ever get into FUT

    Does anyone just play the standard game? I don't feel it's much different this year. The crossing is a bit better I suppose ... that's about it.

    Yeah i play all game modes now, crossing has improved along with through balls.

    Also defending is harder this year.

    I've always been miserable at defending so I never considered that it had gotten harder

    Haven't noticed much improvement in the through ball department - although it's rare I use them as I usually just feed the wings.

    Who does everyone play as?

    Still not put together any kind of team. Played 10 games; Won 7, Draw 1, Lost 2. Game feels a lot like PES now. Not totally sure if I prefer this or 17 yet. What’s everyone else’s view?

    I'll probably have a better idea after the Weekend League, but so far it's amazing and much better than 17. At least playing vs the computer is enjoyable now.

    Game went weird on me yesterday. Felt very lethargic compared to a few days back.

    Packed IF Brozovic in an SBC so sold him for 50k. Gone a bit more Brazilian with Allan, Taison and Soares in the side.

    Re: FIFA 18 Discussion Thread

    In the last day I packed Eriksen (sold) Rudiger, Van Dijk, Sigurdsson OTW.

    Going to keep Rudiger but the other two I might sell on.

    Don't sell Siggy yet. He'll get a few upgrades over the season and his price will skyrocket.

    Packed Bakayoko. Very impressed so far. Played 6 won 3 in weekend league. Defending is very hard and the standard of players seems high. You don't know true terror until you play against a competent player with Gabriel Jesus...

    Re: FIFA 18 Discussion Thread

    Okay so I had a chance to play FIFA 18 on the Switch and believe it or not, it's actually a very very good debut on the Switch for FIFA. I've only played a wee bit as I was testing this out at my work but what I did play was really enjoyable.

    I'll probably still eventually get this for the PS4 or XB1 though for online with friends.

    Re: FIFA 18 Discussion Thread

    Packed Willian, so now I've got a pretty neat team at the moment:

    GK: Courtois
    LB: Van Aanholt
    CB: Rudiger
    CB: Smalling
    RB: Aurier
    CM: Bakayoko
    CM: Fabinho
    CM: Fabregas
    LF: Lemar
    ST: Cavani
    RF: Willian

    Willian is probably my favourite player I've used so far and Bakayoko is as good as everyone said. Willian is always in the right place and he's just as good as he was last year. Defending is still a nightmare for me against skillers, but I use skills too and people can't handle them either so it's all fair I guess. Won't get a lot of time with Weekend League but I got up to Silver 3 with 8-3 record which I'm happy with, and I have pretty much solidified an Elite 1 finish for Squad Battles too. My trade pile is absolutely overloaded with untradeable golds after doing upgrades.

    Re: FIFA 18 Discussion Thread

    Willian is my favourite player by far in this game. So Strong for a winger and just about the right amount of pace and skill to be easy to control.

    Oh, and Fabinho is godlike in CM
