I still can’t believe that Kimpembe remains the best CB on the game after all this time. It’s actually beyond a joke at this point. What the hell did EA do when coding him?

Its so weird, I have a positive gpg ratio with him, but he just feels clunky. I'll try him again now he has the +1 and see what difference that makes (if any).

If not, I still have 25k Lautaro, and 25k SBC Orsolini tearing it up
Have you tried him after the upgrade? Drop back tactics seem to be back on pc and I cannot afford my striker to miss every chances they get. I bought di natale back but his price is falling every hour it seems.

Insane isn’t it. Easily the most OP player on the game, and even more baffling when even Icon goalkeepers consistently throw the ball into their own nets.

I've now started a system where ill gift wins to people on WL if they don't have Kimpembe. If they do then feck them, he needs rooting out. Only a matter of time till EA release a promo/special version too which will be truly unplayable.

You know it’s coming. I’m just glad that new Sarr isn’t as OP as he could’ve been. Could’ve seen a lot more PL hybrids with Kimpembe.

Sold a load of my players and I've got 700k. I need somebody for RM, ST and CM. Ideally looking at Icons. Any recommendations?

What do you need form you're CM? Been using Xavi recently and he's genuinely sensational, Base Essien is still going strong if you're needing a defensive minded CM but he's a bit pricey still. Have you got any fodder? That Seedorf looks decent and he's pretty cheap.

ATM i'm nearly fully untradeable and that new Icardi is class the right side of my 442 is Icardi, Xavi and numbers up Di Maria and so far they're killing it in rivals.

I've been running with KDB and RTTK Bernardo Silva, so i'm not too bothered about defensively minded players.

I have a bit of fodder, but most of it untradable, so i'll have a look at Seedorf, cheers!

Does anyone have any trading tips they'd kindly share? Trying to predict the market is a nightmare.

Don't mind if it's going to take 3-4 days to make a few 100k.
A few 100k is going to be hard in this market, if you don't mind the waiting game then investing in fodder when the market hits a low during TOTY could be a shout but you could be potentially waiting months depending on what SBC's get released, took me 2 months to shift my 88's :lol: If you need the coins for SBC's then BPM is still amazing for creating packs.

Normally spend about 50k a day keeping all minor league's and rares then i'll sell all the prem and la liga bronzes. Got about 300 rares to sell tonight for 350c each when the new icons come out so will get all my money back and i'll have enough cards to complete nearly all the minor leagues for free near enough. Anything not league sbc bound goes into the upgrades and more often then not will typically get about 3-4 prem silvers and then i'll do the 50k from that sbc too. Rinse and repeat and you basically have a conveyor belt of free packs, is time consuming though.

Thanks for taking time to reply, appreciate it!

I didn't buy this years fifa, I basically gameshare with my brother and the last two editions of fifa I bought (19 & 20) I managed to trade to 1m coins but this one there's absolutely no chance.

The bronze pack method sounds like a grind but if it stills brings in a profit, then I'll take that route.

I had a glance on reddit before on the fifa page there and chemistry styles seem to be a good flip somehow.

I assume chem styles are the same principle as everything else buy in bulk on a promo week, then sell when there isn't one. Inform trading used to be a big one for me but it's a slog and it means logging in on the hour every hour. Meta golds with hunter or shadows seems to work too but again you have to log in every hour to really see the profit.

Yeah it sounds like a similar principle to the rest. That's the only problem with trading, you have to check every hour

Just tried him for a few games this evening, same issue. I think the issue is in the traits. He has speed dribbler, compared to technical dribbler on Lautaro, its the only thing I can think that would make that difference. Technical dribbler is also a trait that Adidas Insigne and WW Orsolini have and I have much better luck with them than I do with HL Felipe Anderson and Ice Mertens (who both have speed dribbler too).

New patch is on consoles. Keepers seem a bit better now, and all of the players feel a bit heavier on the ball. Nice to see defenders arent stuck like glue now too.

Also only just discovered the most broken pass in fifa. The L1 R1 triangle driven lobbed through ball. It is almost undefendable, because the lower trajectory means your attacker doesnt break stride when they run onto it, and it seems to make the AI defenders freeze where they stand.

Not having fun doing the pick swap challenges. Still have 9 squad battle games to play and haven't finished the friendly ones either. If I get mid Inzaghi I might throw out my PS5.

6/8 of the Vidic SBC done. He’s replacing either WW Soyuncu or gold Van Dijk, probably the latter. Anyone else done him?

Friendlies are a breeze, SB though might actually be the worst gaming experience in Fifa. Probably goes without saying but i assume you're combining the objectives? 6 games got me 3 tokens and the rare mega pack so wasn't that bad.

Will do him eventually he looks good, tried the full back at CB and it's just not it this year the positioning seems wrong. Not sure who would be a good partner for him, thinking maybe one of the TOTY. Dias should be relatively cheap and he'll be good enough until TOTS.

Yeah friendlies are fine, it's kind of fun to use players you would never use otherwise. And most people are fine, playing golden goal but others not so much.

I did complete 3 objectives with 6 games but I still have to do Italian and Liga Nos... What is this mega pack objective?

The silver beast objective. You get a 55k pack for it, so did that 1st owner, silver, and championship.

Needless to say I packed baby Casillas from the base/mid pack :lol:

Will probably have to get rid of him in an SBC or something.

Gutted. There's literally nothing redeemable about that really especially when you could have got his mid for less. Suppose you always have a 10 chem keeper with guaranteed links?

Yeah but looking at reviews he seems like the worst keeper in the game pretty much. Oh well.

Wouldn't pay attention to those personally, keepers for me vary game to game. Donnarumma was godly for me thened turn to shit, he might have that secret icon sauce :lol:

Could be worse, I got Bobby Moore in 89+ guaranteed pack. Literally the worst I could’ve got. He sells for about 80k.

I'll try him out for sure, hopefully he's ok at least. Good for links as you said.

Yeah it's brutal. And this one hurts as I grinded for the picks... Some pack luck once in a while would be nice.

It did feel like a massive waste of time but that’s the gamble you take. I got Eto’o in the mid icon SBC last week so I used up my luck it seems.

Baby Casillas actually has performed quite well for me, played a rivals game and Fut Champs qualifiers and he was good. Sticking with him for now. He's super quick off the line so good in 1v1s.

TOTY announced.



GK: Donnarumma
Defenders: Hakimi, Marqouinhos, Dias, Cancelo
Midfielders: Kante, Jorginho, De Bruyne
Strikers: Messi, Lewandowski, Mbappe

Messi for Salah would have made sense.

Haha I think I’m doing well with my 20 packs. 23/24 by the time I finish my play offs. :D
I've got some massive ones in there too. When I got to 100 packs I rather sadly calculated id be due about 650 rare players so I guess I can double that now. Please for the love of everything holy can I just pack one decent player. If I get no one I'm done with the game.

Yeah you need something to keep you going. I nearly quit the game few weeks back after I sold Casillas for 67k — he was going for 300+ at the time. I was fecking raging to put it mildly. I’m just going to build a United side I think now, just to enjoy it. I’m in between being a decent player but not good enough (not yet, anyway) to really bother with the most meta players and so I may as well Have Vidic, Ferdinand, Becks in my team et al. After I’m finished with this team - I think I’m done for the year.

You may as well just open the packs now and save yourself the disappointment. I dont think there has ever been a time I have saved packs for a promo and not been disappointed, and I imagine the drop rate for these will be so much lower than anything we have had to this point

Is it all coming out at once?
No - the full team will only be available a week from tomorrow. Last year, they released attackers first, then midfielders, then defenders - believe it was attackers from Friday to Sunday, midfielders from Sunday to Tuesday, defenders from Tuesday to Friday.
