  1. Re. World Class squad battles. Forget pressing the ball, just congest your defensive third and when you win the ball back either play very fast counter attacks or very patient build up with lots of L1 dribbling around the box until an opportunity opens up. The AI are weak against simple skill moves like ball rolls, drag backs, heel to heels and running fake shots. With all that said, I found the latest challenges far more difficult than the last batch. I won 5 out of 6 with my MLS and Eredivise sides first time around, but have now lost more than I've won (3) with a much better Liga NOS team, even against the cherry picked bad teams. I think the latest patch has made a big difference to squad battle gameplay and the difficulty of these challenges.
  2. I took untradeadable packs yesterday (gotta be due Messi right?) and pulled Pique. Sold Laporte for a decent profit and brought in Umtiti and Carvajal. The Toko-Ekambi SBC was a nice surprise, hopefully a bit of pace at ST will complement Lewandowski. Fekir, Morales and IF Muniain as subs. After getting my final first owner Premier League win to complete Guardiola I'm done with icon swaps now.
  3. The Jamie Vardy squad building challenge is very good value too.
  4. @Billy Brown I would get in any one of Brandt, Havertz or Coutinho (standard LW card) to replace Götze while you save up for Reus. IF Delaney is a better option than Goretzka at CDM but not sure he's worth the coins. You could try out the recent 84 rated informs of Kostic or Hazard for LM as you might prefer one of them to Coman. They are both less than 20k. Roussillon is a better option for LB and Lucas Hernandez is the best Bundesliga CB in my opinion.
  5. First lot were easier. I managed 7. No way I'm earning 9 of this lot to get Keane so Pep will have to do for me. I wonder what the chances of base Gattuso in the next season are? That might solve your Politano dilemma @Timmo. He's 89 rated at CDM.
  6. @Pants McSkillMcSkill I was aware of that from reading the FIFA Reddit but I haven't implemented it yet or explored its potential for better chemistry hybrid teams. I'll spend some time looking into it, thanks for the prompt. I'm considering switching to 5-3-2 as I've heard it's more solid than 3-5-2 but I'm still having reasonable success (certainly no ridiculously heavy defeats like I was experiencing at first) in Rivals with the 3-5-2 with custom instruction from the video posted here (thanks again for that whoever it was!). First step is just to get Pep in when the new icon swap challenges appear later on, then try 5-3-2 in squad battles to see if I can dig it.
  7. @bumclasshero I'm in Div 8 currently and have mostly been only playing Rivals for objectives. I do have a much pacier Prem team as well as a solid Italian league team that I do okay with. I'll keep tinkering with this one. Nice WL result.
  8. Any thoughts on this as a potential hybrid team? I realise there are other options such as Militao/Semedo for the defence but that will require more purchases.
  9. I just bought a De Jong for 19.5k. There's a big price discrepancy on Xbox with him for some reason. Looks like I'll definitely be taking coins as rewards next week as almost every player feels accessible.
  10. I packed a UEL Live Juan Jesus in the reward pack for the Bucharest SBC. Sold it as I got an untradeadable Bonucci earlier and still have my untradeadable Marquinhos if I need a Brazilian defensive link. Just so happens the price covered my earlier purchase of Insigne too.
  11. Did the Vardy SBC with players from my club and made a decent amount selling some duplicate and unused 84s too. He'll fit nicely into my fitness squad which is becoming sweatier by the day.
  12. Surprised myself by completing 7 icon swaps objectives. Tried for a while to get the Premier League one this evening only to realise after a few games that I had miscounted the number of first owner players in my team. Worst case, I do another few easy objectives from the next batch and end up with Guardiola, which having never owned an icon before is actually quite an exciting prospect.
  13. I forgot I had packed Cuadrado and Felipe Anderson yesterday so I bought Allan and Manolas and switched to the 3-5-2 that was posted here. Won my first Rivals game and with some ease, after suffering heavy defeats and a lucky draw in my first three games in Div 7. Might have to stick to this, but am now considering a switch to Mertens as one of the two up front. Oh and the Politano challenge looks fun with decent pack rewards along the way as well as a very nice looking card.
  14. This is my team: https://imgur.com/a/DaoA7M4 Thinking Allan and Dybala but might make more sense to bring in Manolas and remove the PSG players.
  15. And just got a tradeable Robertson from an early SBC reward pack. Think I'll sell him and invest in my Serie A/Argentina team as my next best PL player is 81 rated.
