Sure, but mathematically it's awful. For example, on Fifa 12 I got tilted and sold my entire team, worth about 200k, and spent all of it on packs in an attempt to bink something. My return was about 30k in stuff, and that was probably above expected. A 7500 coin pack is going to yeald an average of about 2.5/3k worth of stuff.

I'm not judging dude, I just hate packs with a passion I'd have so many coins...

I've had 2 packs, got like 40k worth of stuff because i binked a cech in the one you get for doing the manager tasks at the start.

H2H i played with 451 for a long while, recently changed to 4411 to get cazorla closer to goal and make me less vulnerable to counters

price fixing a certain player(silver/bronze work best due to lower supply) while buying him on auction on the cheap for supply is probably the easiest way

Can you grind your online fut while offline too or do you play each exclusively as complete different teams?

thanks it's nice to be able to pace abuse now haha... i took 3412 as the trio of Eto'o Welliton and Doumbia were too much to turn down when i searched for fast players and they fit best in a 3 up front. Then needed to get good linkage in the other areas so that formation was a good choice to link the midfield to defence.

fwiw just realised i've got 4 teams: Porto, sick Serie A, pace abuse and a bronze, just like cashy without spending any $ or getting any packs. sickos!

How do you defend vs the chipped/lobbed through ball?

So many times I'll be on the push, and my opponent gets it and just lobs it straight down the field and my defenders either don't react quickly enough, or react and run the wrong direction. I usually run a 4-1-2-1-2 or something with 4 in the back and a CDM. I've tried setting to Defensive and High Pressure because I read that worked but they still get burned over and over.

On the other side, how do you make that pass in a way that your striker will outplay their defenders? I've tried to copy it some but it seems way too hit or miss when my opponents can do it to me at will.

If you look back a few days ago, I explained how I went from using 4 in the back to 3 CB and 1 CDM in the 3-4-3 diamond formation.

It helps a lot with lob passing dickweeds

Yeah, I read that, thanks. It will be quite expensive/annoying to convert my ult team to a 3 in the back formation though :-/. I suppose I will slowly get to work on that.

I guess I was hoping for some in game strategies.

edit: decided to put together a silver 3-5-2 team. Quick shopping shows some silver players are stupid expensive, wtf, people pay 5k+ for silver rares?

opened 42 gold premium packs last night - theoretically this should be worth 42 * 7500 = 315000 coins.

i was expecting to hit about 200k or so as the packs are meant to be -EV but i can report that i hit the following

Benezema - 83
Mata - 44
Vidal - 10
Agger - 6
Feillanu - 8.3
Lichensteiner - 7.2
Welliton -11
Ba - 5.5
Jose Enrique - 6.5
Other Shinys -32
Decent Kuts -1.5
Squad Fitness - 5
Position Mods -6
Free Coins - 6.5
Stadiums -5.3
Formation mods - 17.8
Shiny Contracts - 25
normal contacts - 20
standard gold players 36
Rest -6

Total = 346330 aka 31330 profit on actual pack cost
