Have heard very good things about that zaza card.

352 experiment is going very well. Have something like 13 wins out of 15, and the two defeats I out changed the opponent comfortably and could easily have won.
Just won the tournament to make it back into Weekend League. Won 3-2 in the first round with an 120th minute winner. I had 32 shots, the opponent 2. That game almost gave me heart failure! After that, 7-1, 6-5 and 6-2 wins won it. Mario Gomez netting me 5 goals in the final. Could have been more as I started messing about and was trying to chip the keeper! Picked up IF Zuber and played him at LM. Pretty much a perfect player for the position in 352.

Bronze packs have been crazy the past few days. There's so many players worth a decent amount of coins right now. There's the obvious like Australian players, the four leagues with SBC player rewards, but I've noticed a new trend where seemingly random players are worth at least 1-2k or more for no apparent reason. This evening I was getting players from Austria Vienna, AEK Athens, a couple of Swedish teams and the two South African clubs and selling for decent amounts. It's groups of people buying up cards as they try to second guess EA and the next set of Marquee Matchups. Seeing as there is typically only usually one from the smaller clubs, a lot of people are going to lose a lot of coins somewhere in the next day!

Sounds like we all got shafted by Futchamps this weekend. I think the general feeling seems to be that they've tweaked matchmaking so that after an initial period of games, you only play similar projected finish standard of players. No more easy Sundays! Just about everyone I know did much worse in their second half of games then their first.

Was playing pro clubs earlier and everyone of us had a solid start on weekend league and colllapsed in the second half of games. They're all better players than me and the general opinion was that they've tweaked the weekend league matchmaking this year. In FIFA 17, it was often incredibly easy in the back end of your fixtures, especially on a Sunday more often than not, but we all thought that maybe they changed things.
Also a discussion about formations and tactics led me to try the 352 after the pro clubs session. We've had talk about it in our chat the past couple of weeks, and one guy who was top ten on the those futhead leaderboards in FIFA 15, but has barely played since has started again this year. On the day of release, he was using 352 and raving about it. Had beaten Twitch streamers and Castro backed out against him so far and is possibly top 100 again whilst using it this year.

Since then have also seen rumblings on the forums about 352 and in our discussion, a couple of others have tried it and it works well if done right so chucked together a team from the Premier League using what I had in my club already. Might as well make use of the likes of Matic, Wanyama, Sanchez, Sakho and Matip, all of whom came out of rewards from last weekend.

The team ended up:

Giroud - Lacazette (loan)
Arnautovic - Phillips
Matic - Wanyama
Sanchez - Sakho - Matip

Won my first game 2-0 with both goals from Giroud, and the second game 4-0 with three for Giroud and the other by Lacazette. It felt very solid even though the opponents were playing 433(4) in the first and 41212(1) in the second. Ok, it was division 8, but the opponents both knew what they were doing, and the first one had 88 Ferdinand. There is definitely something in using this formation. It felt excellent in attack. Will stick with using this for a bit and see what happens. Also managed to maul the AI in squad battles on legendary 6-1 so attacking wise it could be very good. The typical crap style of a weekend league opponent will be the test. Wanyama and Matic were like a wall and were always available to receive the ball whilst attacking. Maybe Arnautovic and Phillips aren't ideal but I'm as ever every year, determined to find a way to at least compete with the typical cheap tactics. Last year I didn't even make the weekend league until the end of November, so plenty of time to try and figure stuff out.
The big man, little man combo worked well. Giroud holding it up and burying a few crosses shows promise for my liking of target men. Santi Cazorla also seems very good this year.

What an absolute joke it was last night. Moved on to 12-10 so was looking good to auto qualify. Then lost 8 games in a row! Almost everyone I was ahead. Almost every one I had double to shots of the opponents. It was just stupid. When I managed to lose 5-4 despite having 23 shots to my opponents 6, I knew that wouldn't get 18 wins. Some of the stuff going on was so contrived. Then when I needed four wins from six games, I start winning, passes start going where I want them. But of course some utter nonsense occurs and after Begovic makes six point blank saves, your defender is unable to control the simplest ball and you concede when your keeper get nutmegged.
The amount of two goal leads I lost, mainly involving 90th minute goals, or goals straight from kick off when the opponent can pass around and your entire team acts like a bunch of idiots is simply crazy.

Ended up 17-23. Not one single game went to a penalty shoot out in the 40. It almost feels like there's something going on in the game to prevent it. Just a complete mess of a game at the moment.
It almost feels like there's times when you concede and there's not a damn thing you can do to stop it.

I know exactly what you mean. Opponents you are totally outplaying, but you can only score two goals at most, and after his keeper makes miracle saves and defenders crazy last ditch blocks, he gets two goals completely out of nowhere after 70 minutes or so!

Just one game for me so far today, and it was the Mario Gomez show:

I'd heard that morale was still imbedded in the code somewhere as well. The swings and runs of results you get in weekend league particularly, it would surprise me if this messes with players.

Pretty standard stuff. Went from 8-4 to 8-10 this evening. My keepers didn't save a shot in 4 games ffs. All but one of those games I had more shots, one of them 19 to 4 in my favour. Lost that 3-2. So many games decided by the keepers. In that one his keeper made at least three point blank wonder saves, whilst mine just lets in anything.
Luckily managed to get two wins to end and am 10-10. The new thing this week seems to be the battle every team has to get into position for the sweet spot long shots. The 25 yard long shot across the keeper or the edge of box finesse shots from the central area on the edge of the box. Much less of the one two through ball spam. They all seem to want to try and hit long shots from the exact same spot every game.

I hardly ever use it. Maybe once today for about 2-3 seconds so far in eleven games. It's all about the charged up standing tackle for me. With a strong defender to opponents 99% of the time, weaker striker gets destroyed. Only see Ibra walk through them so far which is how things should be. Have enjoyed the zig zag runners getting frustrated and sliding about so far today.
I'm not a great defender by any means but have had success getting tight on opponents speedy forwards and simply destroying them with a charged up tackle. With a good strong defender, the radius is big and the forward just gets eased of the ball or completely destroyed. Extremely rare to get even a booking from mistiming one, a lot of the time the refs don't even do anything.

Locadia's stats are pretty unique. Has everything important, although people miss out because they can't link him or ignore him because of 2* skills.
I've started off ok. Currently 6-4 after 10 games. Hit eight goals in the first match, and came from 2-0 down at halftime to win 6-2 against some sort of full pace team.
Defending wise, I kind of change depending on where the ball is and the situation. The runs I normally let them run into me, with a charged tackle waiting to unleash. And because the vast majority of the time defenders are much stronger than the quick forwards, you dominate them. In the opponents half I'm way more aggressive in trying to get the ball than ever before. It's all still a work in progress though. Even since the patch, defending is very different than last year.

There are a lot of problems with the game there is no doubt. The pattern is that during the week if you play just to have fun, winning irrelevant, you tend to actually enjoy it, and the opponents don't tend to be ones that abuse everything constantly. Sure you get some, but when they are sporadic, it's tolerable.
The problem is weekend league. Almost every opponent knows the game well, is trying hard to win, and the games tend to be hideous. Just resembling some sort of hyper pinball machine. Once again, there is too much is the game that works too well and really shouldn't.

Last night I was thinking about not using my Locadia team and going with something involving my rewards, but played a game to try and get Locadia the one goal he needed to get to 50. He scored 5! Going to keep that team for a bit longer.
My other team has four IF's and Mario Gomez upfront. Could have picked up IF Wagner to make it five informs but will go with what I have.

Barely slept all night, woke up in a pool of sweat and with an upset stomach so no work for me today. Wonder what else I can do?

Gold 3 rewards!
First pack a purple flash! Though that meant Messi, Sigurdsson or Salah. No, some Costa Rican defender with crazy physical stats. Second pack, Matic and a few other decent players. Third pack, walkout, Ribery! Plus an Italian IF goalkeeper and Hazard! Well the brother anyway.

Easily made back over 100k from this, maybe 150k with all the other decent sellable stuff I pulled.

But with these non expiring Icon SBCs, god knows how the market will go now.

Probably should put this in the videos section but it just crashes if I load up that thread.

Been using the new charged up standing tackle a lot since the start of last weekend. It can really stop zigzag runners dead in their tracks. You can really dominate small, weak (quick) attackers. Use it here, totally annihilate the attacker, but a foul on this occasion surely? Not a huge amount of people seem to use it, but I think when learnt properly, will be a powerful defending tool.
