    I feel like I don’t see him very often when I play other users and don’t feel like a lot of the top guys use him so maybe it’s just him

    He looks pretty nasty.

    I got Busquets in mine. Waiting to see what I get tomorrow to see how it looks to use him.

    I'm looking for Ter Stegen. Feels weird to root for a GK

    His card looks really good. I'm waiting on buying anything until I see how the rest of TOTS pulls go but as of now, I was looking at doing Ramos, German CB and Ter Stegan or Ramos, Dave and De Gea.

    Ter Stegen looks really good. I'd be thrilled to get him, Ramos is who I'm really hoping for (I'd kill for Ronaldo, Messi or Suarez but I don't think even I have that much luck) since he's the 1 guy I feel like I'm definitely targeting unless I pull an Italian CB during Serie A TOTS (would be green link from Maldini so really easy to link)

    Aspas with Hawk is 99 in all 6 shooting categories and 95 pace, 92 passing and 96 dribbling. Wtf

    Since his strength isn’t boosted much and he’s already got 98 positioning/99 finishing Id also suggest taking a look at Engine to get balance almost maxed (97).

    Would be 95 pace 96 shooting (98 positioning 99 finishing 99 volleys 92 long shots) 93 passing (99 short pass, curve and FK) and 99 dribbling (agility, reactions, ball control and dribbling at 99 with 97 balance).

    Might also depend on how you plan to use him. Engine is 97 RW/96 RM/ST.
    Hawk is 97 ST, 95 RW, 93 RM

    Yeah TOTS is great because it’s relatively easy to get amazing cards

    My go to example is last years Lars Stindl.

    He was like 100k-150k. With the right chem style applied he could go up to 97 winger/CM/CAM/CF, 95 fullback, 94 CB

    I would also check out what it comes with as well. Typically I will weigh my options each year of paying for the improved versions for free weekly packs or just buying that equal amount in FIFA points at release to buy packs up front when rare golds are worth way more than they will be by Winter or Spring to build up my coin base

    How much effort do you have to put in to get some of the teams you guys have? I see you talking about doing it on your phone...can you do a lot of the leg work while pooping at work or are you playing every night? How fun is it to play with those teams vs playing seasons with Liverpool or Barca or City?

    I like the concept of FUT and gave it a decent effort last fall but between the miraculous cpu comebacks and it taking legitimately 4 games a night for a week to make real coins to buy...50k Ivan Rakitic...it just didn’t make sense when I could play seasons and have fun too with none of the time investment.

    It’s a combination of playing regularly, getting lucky in packs, doing the SBCs in a cost efficient way, making smart choices with your coins.

    To me it’s much more fun playing with the team I built in this and using the different special cards than playing seasons. It also has the best servers. It’s not for everyone though.

    I won’t pretend like I haven’t spent money on the game, plenty have pretty absurd squads without spending money. There is a guy from FUTbin who has been posting a guide for how to get to a million coins.

    For a long time I hoarded players and would buy silver and bronze player packs if they became available because thanks to weekly Marquee Matchups SBCs they have value due to scarcity and will at times instant sell for max price.

    If you have any SBCs you haven’t done, I would check out FUTbin SBC solutions page to see which ones you can do for cheaper than the cost of the pack also

    I couldn’t wait until I got home. Got Saúl. Looks incredible but I got him last night when I did about 5 upgrade SBCs. (Pulled him and Adan. Had done about 50 the previous day without getting any so was extremely lucky)

    Threw the extra into Laudrup 86 rated squad SBC.
    Need 2 more of his (84 and 85 rated squads) and I’ll have him.

    Swapped Godin for Pique, which works better because it doesn’t impact DDGs chem.

    Overall I’m good with what I got out of La Liga TOTS. Ready for BL.

    Got Adan for the third time. Threw him into a Roberto Carlos SBC and went ahead and finished it. Only DDG away from my final team. Could do it if I sell OTW Sanchez and some of my BL guys but gonna wait to see what I get from the BL TOTS. I didn’t get much from packs from La Liga but happy overall. Want Isco to have all the Madrid TOTS not named Ronaldo.

    That first pack is just insane. I sold the IF and Godin. No idea about Suárez. Gonna try him out and probably keep him but it’s a lot of coins so selling is a possibility

    I was done with these TOTY sbcs but I accidentally got an untradable toty Adan when doing the non premium Spanish upgrade

    Which remaining one looks most appealing?

    After they do all the leagues they do an Ultimate TOTS but it’ll probably have higher requirements.

    Bundesliga looks pretty amazing though.

    That Goretzka might be the most appealing card in the entire game to me.
    With the right chem style he can be 95 ST, 96 winger, 97 CF/DM/CB/fullback, or 98 CM/CAM

    Very highly recommend everyone go for the weekly objective. 5 online seasons wins with a goal from a Liga NOS player.

    Wasn’t sure I could find use for Marega and thought he’d go into a TOTS SBC but after 1 sub appearance I’ve changed my mind.

    Checked out the stats and he’s very similar to Hero Jozy who you know I love except he’s also fast as fuck.

    94 pace (96 sprint), 88 positioning, 92 finishing, 96 shot power, 87 long shots, 94 strength, 94 heading, 98 reactions on a 6’1 ST.

    Here’s the squad I used and also a very satisfying message I got.

    Played some guy who tried to dribble through everyone, played Promes at RB, paused a bunch (once to copy my formation) moved TOTS Son at CM so he could have a front 3 of POTM Zaha, IF Lozano and TOTS Mané (so much pace). I forget the score when he sent this message.

    He looks incredible. Congrats. He’s worth building a squad around him IMO.

    Or he’s so good that chem doesn’t really matter and you could immediately bring him off bench for someone else

    This is what I’m gonna run. Plan to get TOTS Ter Stegen and maybe TOTS Hummels, but this is my final squad. No more upgrades after that.
