Serious, this game is greatness. I know not many of you play sports games and neither do I. Until, that is, I bought FIFA 17. I have been hooked ever since. The game at it’s core is so simple and so fun once you learn the basics. Even playing online is fun because they put you in “Divisions” based on your skill level so you’re never really in over your head.
But the main draw here is FUT(FIFA Ultimate Team). The goal here is to build the best team possible for play against the computer or against other FUT clubs online. These are build in one of 2 ways. You can “buy” card packs using the money you win from matches and daily/weekly challenges, or you can seek out certain players on the Transfer Market. Both options can be used to your advantage in order to make more money which can be used to buy better players.
Option 1 - Buy packs and hope for some great cards to either use or to sell on the Transfer Market. I’ve had some great luck with these. My first 2 “free” packs that were used to start a club with had 2 great players in them and I was able to flip them for 45k in coins. I was able to use those to field a really good team using players from the Calico A league in Italy.
Option 2 - The Transfer Market. Hello meta game. Here you can use your earnings to buy exactly who you want. You can also use it as a stock market of sorts in order to build up your finances. They even have websites that track the market and the players on there. You want to buy low and sell high, obviously. I started off with about 4k after initial match earnings and selling useless players from my packs(this after making 45k and spending it all on my Italian team). I have turned that into a nice profit of 140k+. It’s kinda stupid sounding but it’s oh so fun.
Just in case you guys are interested at all here’s some of my best goals from the last week from some online matches using my FUT teams. These are using my my squad of players from the U.S. and my squad of players from the Calico A Italian league. I just made enough to build a good English Premier League squad so I’ll have some next week from them.
Give this game a try. I think the demo is on the PS Store.
