hmm I have Luiz as one of my 3 CBs, think it would be worth it to move to IF luiz as a CDM and then add santana to take his place?

So would be Dede / Silva / Santana in defense

edit; or looks like there are other brazilian CBs better than santana, what do you all suggest?

i find david luiz ******edly bad at CB so i think putting someone at CB instead of him is a massive upgrade. Dono who though, never built brazilian defence.

David luiz is awesome tho at CB . quality forward play.

I guess I could always stick diego/kaka as one of the the CDMs and then have someone more defensive as the other.

Also was looking at Futhead and IF paulinho looks interesting, as well as the IF bruno cesar which has decent defending (compared to kaka/diego) and a 91 longshot / 93 shot power.

Thoughts?
UP Juninho. Not a natural CDM, but ok def stats, decent pace and amazing skill stats. High/high wr tho, but you can also play him CM and CAM. He's gonna be in every Braz squad I ever make.

IF Luiz is god awful if you like your CDM to play CDM. If you like your CDM to play CF/ST, Luiz is your man.

Santana is way better than Luiz at CB.


SIF Cesar looks like hes exactly what you need based on his stats, Ive never used him.

I've always wondered this- if you had to guess, approximately how many Messi's exist on Xbox?

Ronaldo/Messi for Hazard/Aguero or for Cazorla/Hazard.

I think on console Aguero would get 9 chem with just the 1 nation link. On FUThead etc it shows 7, but if you change it on console, back out of squad then go back into squad, he shows 9 chem.

Try it first by switching Alba for Hazard, then leave squad and re-enter.

IF Benzema or Falcao then

cant afford ronaldo with that team, and messi can suck a dick

i am going through some kind of fifa downswing, my recrd was like 130-50 which is quite good. i then bought 2 mill coins and played around with messi/zlatan/ribery/robben in a few formations and went around 4-15

imo aguero is the best striker on the game so gonna stick with him, i do agree i will lack without some kind of target man who can head, but i think aguero makes up in other areas

although that said i havent tried falcao yet so that is an option, not a fan of benzema in 4321

falcao is utterly amazing(he scored 5 against a good opponent yesterday!)

Havent you been playing long enough to realize this sort of stuff is complete variance and/or scripting?

Yesterday I scored five, yes literally five goals in the first 20' of a game, ended up winning 9-1 with 40% possession and opponent had twice as many shots on goal. Carlos eduardo ended up with six, but I wouldnt use this as evidence of him being awesome

Edit- not to say falcao isn't awesome, but people should be more interested in how players perform in those 0-0 or 1-1 games where you keep getting terrible bounces against you

only exceptional goal-machines can manage to score 5 goals in one game against good opposition
(a guy who loses 9-1 is certainly not good)

Yea and notice how a new player/squad gets amazing reviews ITT, a week later they suck. Im always guilty of it to.

130-50 is a very good record, is that cup or league? If thats league and mainly div 1 then thats really good.

Last year my record was like 5:1. This year its about 2:1. Its one big variance fest and it drives me insane.

Ive lost 9-1 before. I regularly get beat 5 and I have had downswings where I lose 5 or more every game.

Ive won 10+ div 1 titles and many cups.

Not sure how many of you all believe that there is handicapping in FUT, but for those of you that do I'd like to pose a question.

If a team w/ higher rated players are given bad bounces vs teams w/ lower rated players why are you not purchasing players that seem to play above their overall rating? A few examples of players that have been talked about ITT that seem to be better than their overall rating are el shaarawy & maximiliano moralez.

I also wonder how much overall team ratings (the avg. overall rating of each player) plays into deciding who you end up playing. I know it is a small sample size, but I have 2 teams and 1 has players rated higher than the other one (both are gold teams) and it seems that the weaker rated of the two teams seems to not play against teams that field the world's best players much. If this is the case I would prefer using players like wilshere and ramires in my MF over players like yaya and nasri.

Im not convinced the handicapping always goes against the better ranked team, seems like they roll an invisible dice before each game to determine the "effective chemistry" or something like that.

Ofc id have to pay someone to come in to keep my eyes open as i bore my opponent and myself to death going : LB -> LM -> CM > LM > CM >LM > LB> CB RB> RM > CM> RM CM> RM.

True to barca style.

Ive run like the sun with my non rare gold team v the best teams on the game. If i come up against an all silver team my players go full ******. Its undeniable. But ill admit it may not be 100%, i have felt teams way better than my get lucky and felt bronze teams get screwed. But the majority of screwness is undeniable
