FIFA 18 Gathering

Recommended Posts

I am finding FUT Online Seasons quite difficult. People having excellent squads from Division 6 itself. How are you guys finding it? 

 

I have a Ligue 1 Dominant Squad. Lack of physicality in midfield is causing lot of issues.

What's your squad? Ligue 1 midfield isn't strong (or in general). A lot of physically weak players who can be easily bullied away. 

 

 

 

I alternate between these two squads mainly..

Don't know how you play but Balotelli has L/L with low reactions. He simply doesn't work. If anything he makes your team worse. 

Traoré RW isn't good either. He has 1* weak foot which makes him a liability.

Baldé is more suited as a sub. 


Get Mbappé/Gameiro/Yedder as your ST. Pick up Dembélé/Alessandrini IF for RW. 

Tolisso as CM. Even Bakayoko. The most used card. 

 

No point in running wings on a low budget. With so many free packs/fitness cards, you are better off running single good squad than 2 average squads. 

 

If you are finding 433(2) hard, would suggest running 2 CDM formations. 4231 is excellent this year.

Hmm. What does L/L mean? Balotelli is actually not quite bad as he has good pace and shooting. Have scored 49 goals with him in 87 games. 

 

With Cavani, I have scored 56 goals in 88 games. 

 

I like 4-3-3 Formation with one CDM and 2 CM since it ensures that I have more control in the midfield with the CDM staying back. It's just that I feel even an 81 Rated PL team seems to  be better than mine in midfield, perhaps due to physicality. 

 

I haven't tried 4-2-3-1 formation. In that formation,  the Wide Players will play  a little deeper. Am I right?

L = low; M = Medium; H = high.

 

Having L/L on the sole striker isn't a good idea. Balo also has poor reactions which make it harder to get 100% out of him when needed. With L/L, he won't proper runs for attacking compared to M or H work rate. He will simply sit and wait for you and create zero threats. 

 

Ideally, you should look for H or at least medium attacking work rate on a striker. 

 

Cavani works because he has H/H, amazing positioning and reactions to cover up his pace. Still not the best option but if you can make a team around him, he is deadly. Great finishing and incredible on air too.

PL players are over-powered like always. 99% of the PL teams run Bakayoko as he is crazily over-powered. WBwHo4N.png

The wings aren't effective like before this year and also cheap wingers aren't good either except a few.

 

4231 works great due to great attacking while keeping the width and 2 CDMs to back up the defensive line. 

 

You could also go with 41212(2). Double ST, CM, a CAM and a CDM. Having good CM, a pacey striker and a target man like Cavani will work better.

These will ideally work better and make the best out of your players.

 

Ruffier as GK as he has save with feet trait. The meta is low driven shots, so keeps with SWF traits are more effective. 

You could also sell Thiago Silva and get someone else as he isn't the strongest to pair with Marquinhos. Both are physically not best to pair.

Sandro LB is meta and among one of the best LB you can get in-game. Umtiti-Varane is a better pair due to having best work-rate for centre-backs. Ter Stegen also has save with feet trait, so he is a good choice too. 

 

This one is more balanced and offers you good attacking and defending.
