Surely they must have know what would happen? Majority of PC matches are hackers in Division 1, so it was hardly a surprise that within half an hour of starting there were people on PC with 21-0-0 records!

Well, given that there are 3 regional leaderboards, the kid made the comment that he doesn't understand why there is not top 100 prizes for each of those leaderboards.

Going on coin payouts alone, the top 100 will receive a total of 14.3M coins. If they had to times that by 3, it's a huge amount being flooded onto the market - every single weekend. And that's before the packs.

Now, the packs ... Rumours are that only the high TOTW packs will be untradeable. But, not confirmed and wouldn't be surprised if EA do an about turn & make them all untradeable. :D

LOL at the PC record after half an hour. How stupid must you be?!?!

Using a 442 which I have found to be pretty decent this year with a classic big man, little man front two and a destroyer and more attacking CM in the centre of midfield. Mandzukic and my untradable Javier Hernandez are going well. Have been promoted from Division 9 to Division 5 in consecutive season with three different 442 teams and looking good for Division 4.
In the cups, been using a 433(5) which is again decent this year. My untradable Mata is by far my top scorer and assister in Fifa 17 so far. Have modified that team to be all BPL from untradables and random non rares I have stashed in my club for the current FUT Champions Qualifier and am in the semi final with two tries left.
Have been looking to use discard IF's again and my 442 has IF Paletta at CB who is pretty decent. Also been using IF Iago Falque in the false 9 team before it was changed to BPL for the tournament.
I'm keeping games played, goals assists and cards stats for every single player I'm selling so by the end of FUT 17 I'll be able to account for every single player I've used at all!

Really decent session last night. Some good games, mixture of wins and losses but fun stuff with no lag so all good. Managed to get myself up to Division 4 now. Four straight wins have put me into promotion after a streak of draws. In the cup, absolutely destroyed someone with Mandzukic. All five goals in a 5-0 win and could have been more if I hadn't missed two clear chance near the end.
Played the final promotion game this morning. Were debuts for Jose Reina and Marc Bartra in my 442 team, replacing Consigli and Stobl. Reina's first two touches were a penalty save and a one on one save. Eventually won 1-0 so decent first appearance for him.

Already had promotion to Division 4 sorted, but needed one point from the last game for the title. Predictably was 3-0 down at half time somehow. The third was the dirtiest near post corner bs load of nonsense ever witnessed. There just seems to be some sort of AI failure if the ball is bit right into the near post. Unfortunately more and more people seem to be picking up on it.
It was still 3-0 after 77 minutes but then things just went mad. Mandzukic got two and Hernandez the other and seven minutes later it was 3-3 and title won.
Division 4 started with a loss and a win.

The 22 wins were mostly tough wins, but some of the losses were stupid/not deserved/dodgy/etc. So, all kinda balances out.

So ... Gold 2 = 2 Rare Mega packs and 1 gold rare pack + 45k in coins. Packs weren't amazing, but reckon there was about 45k worth of players & contracts & discards, etc. So 90k back from some stressful games ... no going to complain.

Some very mixed form yesterday. Failed to qualify for FUT champions once again, which is probably a blessing in disguise! Division 4 was also a very mixed bag, but managed to get the two points I needed from the final two games to survive this morning, with a 2-2 (16 shots to 3 in my favour), and a 4-2 win (4 shots to 15, not in my favour!) Standard FIFA 😁

Played only two last night, a draw (90th minute own goal  >:( ) and a win. Not very enjoyable opponents. The same one dimensional play as always: pick uop the ball, run to the other side, cut back...either hsoot or give pass to striker. And repeat this 20 times in a match....we call them 'runners'.

After the kid finished the Champions Cup games, I played some division games (solo). We were in D2 with 2 wins ... managed another 5 wins on the trot for a D2 title.

After playing a few Drafts - been a bit easy (co-op) to be honest - but, we have used IF Pogba for 2 of them & he's been "bloody brilliant"! The last team had 86-chem and we still walked the 4 games.

So ...

... "The things we do for our kids" ...

Sold off pretty much 90% of the club & welcomed this guy in last night:


I think a hat trick against Liverpool will suit me pretty well :P .Really though, this one we'll keep for Generations, etc. Certainly hope he doesn't do a "Milik" - that was pretty harsh for him!

Been a bit of a struggle for me. I have lost seven finals in the daily tournament, more than one by comical goals. Have probably also played more seasons in divisions than the whole of FIFA 16 already! Got up consecutively to division 4, apart from two tries in Division 8 I think in the first couple of days. Since reaching Division 4, I've got stuck there, winning a couple of times to save myself in the final match, having a shot at promotion in the final match a couple of times also. Having a couple of dead seasons where I held comfortably.
Managed to get relegated on Saturday though. Have been struggling really. Find it difficult to score consistently. So many games finish 0-0, 1-1 or 1-0 either way. Have altered my tactics a bit since the relegation. Trying to get more players in the box, rather than my 10-10-10 on the chance creation getting frustrated so often by the negative play. Seemed to work a bit as yesterday I walked division 5 and held in division 4 again, with only a couple of absolute BS games involving park the bus and rebounds to Remy making things more difficult.

Top scorer, assister and appearance maker has been Juan Mata at mostly false 9 so far. He has about 60 goals and and 30+ assists.

I managed to drag myself up to Division 3 after what seemed like an eternity in Division 4. After losing the first two matches, went unbeaten for the remaining eight games, with 4 wins and 4 draws.
Team has slowly evolved and changed but at present is this in a false 9:

PotM Son - Mata - Tello

Schweinsteiger - Borja Valero
IF N'Zonzi

Clichy - Mangala - Rami - Mario Gaspar

Diego Alves

Rami and Mata have been there since the start, as has N'Zonzi, although I have upgraded to his IF now. Will be changing Mata to Roberto Firmino as he has started to be slightly less effective in Division 4 due to his lack of strength. Gets bullied more now, although he has still been performing. Of course this will mean more changes, but pretty certain N'Zonzi stay.

Have used a number of players in a constantly changing cup/fitness team. At present I have a 4231 with IF Al Soma, IF Carlos Eduardo and IF Sule. That has been fun to use in the 5 games it has played. Al Soma is pretty good!

Good one mate.

For us, with some 'better' focus on D1, finally won it. I had a decent run the previous night (4-0-1), then won the first 2 of the night. The 2nd being (IMO) a damned good comeback. Down 2 goals to one of those that likes to slow it down and continually drag it back. Was worse when he went that 2nd goal up, trying to use up as much time as possible.

Just before HT though, goals through Eder & Candreva levelled it up. Could immediately see the urgency, but the funny thing is he never went off ultra defensive. When Firmino flicked it forward past his CB (still a bit wide though), he had plenty time to pass to Bergkamp just outside the box. Never a doubt as he smashed it bottom left corner, with 20 min to go. He still never went attacking. Was concerned with one corner - as it was cleared out, he never even had a man forward. Weird.

Kid joined me for the remaining games. Won the first comfortable, then only managed a draw in the next. Needing just a draw for the first D1 title, we gave the first team a fitness and romped home to a 4-1 easy win. Never in doubt ... :D.

Enjoying seasons probably a bit more than previous. It's not all try hards like last year - seems like people leave that for the Weekend League.

I have been doing the SBC lately and got some great pulls from packs like Bonucci, Higuain, Koscielny, etc. Bought some players too and made two teams in the web app. Than it took me 3 weeks before I had the nerf to run FIFA17 again  :P

Played 3 games last night and I made the promise with myself not to get mad anymore but take it on the chin. First game I get down pretty quickly and the second goal is a walk-in own goal of Bonucci. Right, 8 minutes under the way and 2-0 down. It is my serie A team and the debut of Higuain. So I keep on playing and make it to midway with 2 down. Than teh game starts and before I know it is it 3-0 and soon to be followed to 4-0. However, I was actually playing pretty well and I bring it back to 4-1 with Higuain soon to be followed by a Marchisio long shot 4-2. I miss an one-on-one so couldn't put the third one behind. Oh well. bad start in result but I must admit I liked the way I played and moreover, how my opponent played. Second game with BPL team. His Mertens (42 strength) pushes my Zouma ( 85 strength) from the ball  ::). Nothing has changed, 1-0 down. This guy watch all the replays, and with all I mean ALL. Even the misses, fouls, offside, etc. When he makes it 2-0 I put down the controller just to **** him off. When I return it is still 2-0 ...crazy how some people cannot score against the AI but against me no problem. That made me think...

Third game. Serie A again. Tight fight. I leave my defenders alone and hardly switch to them anymore. The auto tackle is ridiculous good. I don't get into trouble but I have hard time breaking him too. We both roll 4312 and the midfield is too dense. The class of Higuain brings me the winner.

All in all nice evening. A different mindset does help...
