Hi all, new to next gen (well technically next next gen) Fifa, the last time I played it was back on the mega drive and all the players had stars around them!
Finally caught up with technology and got an xbox one in the Christmas sales, used the great excuse as a media player to the Mrs and she wasn't 100% against it so jumped on the opportunity, anyway
Have built a semi decent team ( probably trash compared to most) and spent a while catching up on all the extra button and just getting familiar with everything, still enduring a now 28 losing streak though but at least the 12-0 thrashing so have stopped! Can just about hold my own on semi pro now which is reasonable I think in a few weeks of play??
On reading websites and forums etc about Fifa tips and tactics wise I've noticed alot of talk about Toty, now this is where having no experience of previous totys leaves me with a few questions.
Q1) I beleive the release is staggered defenders, midfielders and then strikers yes?
Q2) pack buying wise, seen a few you tubes etc and are the pack limited quantity or limited timeframe? And pack avaliable throughout the week? But best time to buy would be? The 18th since all the players avaliable? Or buy early hope to get good players to buy more packs?
A2) Special packs may be something like 10 per account with 24hour timeframe to buy...as an example. Regular packs always available. If you wait until 18th they all release at once.
Q3) do the packs really cost 100k FIFA Coins? Got 2200 Fifa points with the game so what's the point equivalent?
A3) This is when 100k packs release. equivalent of 2000 fifa points.
Q4) are instructions useful for players, played around with them and can't really see a massive difference!
A4) Instructions are a great method to tell "CPU" where you want a particular player to be when you are controlling someone else. Helpful to, for example, tell a CAM not to go back in defense...
Q5) currently using a 532 formation as the only way I've found to stop through balls just ripping me apart, is there a better way?
A5) This is a very long debate as to how to stop opponents who spam lob through balls. My conclusion is to basically ALWAYS anticipate your opponent doing a give and go lob and make sure your defenders are not all the type who attack like crazy. If you search the forums you will find all sorts of comments on this subject matter.
Q6) is player buying and selling the best way to make coins? At the current rate Fifa 36 will be out before I can afford the step up in players!
A6) Trading is indeed a great way to afford those expensive players. But it takes understanding the markets and patience. Don't let emotions dictate your decisions. Find a system and stick to it. Again searching the forums will yield you lots of good tips.
Let me know if you!
