    Presumably not really any different to shooters where you pay cash to upgrade weapons, armour et. (these do exist, yes? I don't really play games anymore!)

    Not sure any of the big shooters have pay to win mechanics. I wonder if people would still pay for fut packs if they were only match made against people that had spent similar amounts of money?

    I just dont get the appeal personally and find it quite sad that gaming has gone that route and get away with it

    I mean Iíve cobbled together a team of 80 rating with about 50 matches played and still got 40k in the bank.

    How much more does having Ronaldo or Hazard actually make a difference in game?

    Genuine question.

    For me the fun is in wheeling and dealing on the transfer market and just having loads of coins to spend defeats that fun.

    It's a massive difference having a gem in your team, the chances of them scoring are way higher than other players.

    £0

    I also went for the cheapo option so didnt get any free packs to start with.

    Basically played about 50 games now, mostly squad battles, re-listed everything i dont want on the auction house at sensible prices, and done the basic and advanced squad builder challenges, again selling stuff i dont need.

    Note on the squad builder challenges if people dont know, you can use sites like FUTBIN to work out the cheapest way of completing them, but it does require some ebay stile sniping to get them done.

    Also my kids get up at like 4am so sniping on the auction house is easier at that time :-D

    It's easy to build a 80 gold team from the auction house for about 1000 coins a player, so call it about 20k, 11 first teamers and 9 reserves.

    You've got it bad!

    FH4 has been keeping me off this. Kind of lost interest already despite really enjoying it when I play it....if that makes sense? I'll try and get on it again later.

    I've spent £0 on packs too, and have an 85 rated La Liga team. Also got 120k coins ready for a fast centre back to cover Pique. Most of my coins have come from reward packs from squad battles and division rivals, and I have done a little bit of SBC. You can also play the market, sometimes this is more fun than the actual game.

    Still think the gameplay was better last year.

    100% they've fucked the gameplay, sometimes it's a dream to play, and sometimes the passing feels like Wayne Rooney wearing high heels, gameplay wise it's the most inconsistent it's ever been

    Sniped Morata and Gundogan for my team this morning.

    Morata seems well worth the price (5k) so far, two goals on his debut ;-)

    Gundogan was 7.5k.

    Now at the stage where i have to decide whether i want to start spending upwards of 20k on individual players. I hate doing that. Especially PL players are so expensive.

    Or just start a different team e.g. bundesliga or something

    Brazil team is fun to use, Talisca, Telles, Hulk and Allan are all excellent.
    I'm just saving my coins for Neymar now. Got 500k but he's 600k. No doubt his market value will plummet as soon as I get him though!

    The market generally tanks around black Friday so I'd keep the coins until then.

    Patch out this week that nerfs bicycle kicks.

    I celebrated by splurging 14,000 coins on Lacazette who scored a hat trick in his first game.

    Looks like i will be taking a hit on Morata, bought for 7500 or so, but going rate now is 3500 pah

    He also turned out to be shit in the game as he is in real life. One situation where overall rating is misleading, he's 83 and i think Arnautovic is 81 but he's 10 times better

    Heh was just in a bidding war over Gabriel Jesus.

    He should go for 29,000 coins, was up to 25k, and i think someone pressed the wrong button because the next thing i know it was expired @ 120,000

    salty salty tears haha.

    The more I play of this, the more i grow to like it. Now that i am a bit better at the game, i can pass it about in midfield a bit more slowly, and carve out openings. Also turning the passing down to "noob" level actually is helping my enjoyment. Scoring all kinds of goals now.

    Team is coming along nicely, i have 81+ players in every position, but i cant afford the biggest names, possibly i never will but whatever.

    How EA can constantly take a hammering for server issues every year and get away with is baffling

    Yay looks like i'll make gold level 1 this week without really playing too many games. About the best i can manage given my skill level and the time i want to expend on the game.

    Still enjoying the single player yeah, want to get into the online but just CBA right now

    After a 2 year break from FIFA, I thought I'd try and get back into it again.

    They've really made an arse of online FUT these days. Divisions seems to be gone now? just online rivals or something?

    Got an 81/82 rated team, which is as high as I ever manage, and you used to get matched against teams fairly similar. But now about 4/5 teams I face online are 85+ rated with loads of special cards. Back in FIFA 16/17 the special cards were fairly rare, but now it seems like everyone has them. Unless that's just a PC issue.

    Got this for Crimbo. Playing online seasons as usual. First impressions (upgrading from 17) are that it's slower, weightier and more physical. Always more realistic-lending settings for a football game imo.

    Otherwise, it's Fifa innit *shrug* *thumbs up*
