View Full Version : FIFA Ultimate Team Discussion & Squad Show Off

I hope everyoneís enjoying the new FIFA so far.

Iíve got my first Ultimate Team of the year set up and almost ready to go, due to a shortage of cash Iíve had to skimp on a few positions (notably central defence) but this should be a fairly solid team which should be able to defeat the majority of teams I come up against, even ones with more fashionable and expensive players in.

SERVER | EA SPORTS Football (http://www.ea.com/uk/football/fifa-ultimate-team/show-off#d5OrjbzXh64:360)

The team is primarily build to defend deep and in numbers, the two CDMís should be constantly blocking potential long shots and chasing down threats while the back 4 handle any runners. The front two is pure pace and Emenke is a 94 strength beast who will not be knocked off the ball by any defenders out there and will serve as a battering ram through defences and to hold up play nicely, Welliton is a long term FIFA favourite of mine offering great pace and excellent finishing for a relatively low price.

This front two for me should be more effective than any more expensive players like Rooney or Aguero and cost a fraction of the price.

Iíve gone for a Brazilian flavour because they are so numerous that the costs can be kept down and the squad will be easily upgradable as soon as I start raking in the big bucks.

The entire team has cost me about 18K to assemble and that includes 9K spent on Welliton.

how do you go about getting your points? play loads of games or do you buy the packs?

Trading, I missed out on two weeks of trading due to being away, the market opens early online to people who played last year.

I managed to build up about 20K within a day from my free starter packs, returning player packs and special edition packs and a bit of trading then build that team above. Frankly playing matches will make you break even just about when you take into account all the contract cards you have to buy so unless you trade or win a lot of tournaments then making money is hard.

By the end of last season I built up more than 400,000 coins and sold the lot off before selling the game (a net profit for the year lol), you can buy coins off eBay but it’s expensive early on (about £20 for 100,000 coins, drops to about £10 per 100,000 in a couple of months).

It’s either that or buy packs for MSP’s and that is frankly a fools game, some people get “pack luck” and land on a Messi or Ronaldo but mostly it’s a massive waste of money.

I’ll give you all an insight into my secret Ultimate Team strategy:

Put the fastest possible players in every position.

You need to click "Share" when on your squad in the web-app to get a link to your team mate.

bk wondering if you can help me out here, Just bought some points for Ultimate team as I had a few £ spare and wanted to get back into it and after buying the points, I buy my first pack and before I can see what is in it I get booted out of Ultimate team, It's been 2-3days now and it is still saying error connecting to Ultimate team.

Any ideas?

I can indeed help. UT has been taken offline for now because of some pretty serious hacking that went down.

Basically a group of hackers managed to figure out how to get infinite coins, they kept this to themselves for a time, buying up many of the most coveted players for themselves. Over the weekend they broke ranks and some of them tried to over their trading anomalies by bumping the average prices for many player massively (in most cases bidding 15,000,000 coins on worthless players). Billions of extra coins flooded the market, the unwitting recipients of these "gifts" bought players for hugely inflated prices, the whole market got pretty fucked up in a matter of hours and with things rapidly spiralling out of control EA took the servers offline while they work of fixing this shit-storm.

The banhammer had been given a thorough workout I gather but hackers are sneaky fuckers and have transferred coins and player all over the shop. EA they need to get those coins out of the market and roll it back to it's "pre fucked-up" state or risk a permanent market imbalance and losing a lot of peoples money from buying packs. Will in all likelihood be a couple of days yet while they work on things, it's a fairly big PR disaster and as far as I can tell they really are working double time to get things straightened out. However EA being EA have told the users sweet FA.

cheers bk!, thought they had took my money and done a runner

12-06-2012, 08:44 AM
UT servers are up again (apparently - I haven't actually looked).

Anyway Lurg if you fancy a match I'm always looking for people to play on UT who won't send me a torrent of abuse after the match.

12-08-2012, 05:57 PM
Here's my latest creation, I'm still in love with 3-5-2, as you can see lol...


Those Norwegians up top are insane!

12-08-2012, 08:13 PM
Does it really make a difference about the colour of the lines between the players?, mine are all green atm but really struggling to find better players to keep all green unless I pay ridiculous amounts for them

12-08-2012, 08:41 PM

My current team, I haven't played it much so only just starting out

12-08-2012, 09:03 PM
The colour of the lines don't matter, I only need green lines to compensate for broken links (red) to keep everyone on 9 chemistry.

As long as your players are on 9 then they're playing to the maximum of their abilities.

So all yellow is just as good as all green basically.

Anyone playing Ultimate Team then guys? Would be good to have a few games!

02-05-2013, 08:41 PM
I still do occasionally, I have a bundesliga\serie a team which is fronted by the then Milan striker Alexandre pato, I'm available tomorrow night if you fancy a couple games

02-06-2013, 09:08 AM
I go football training on Wed nights atm so am usually wiped out when I get home but if I’m half-awake I’ll give you a game. FIFA gets a bad rap on here I always think, personally I love the game and assuming you know how to trade well you can build up a load of cash quickly to build awesome teams, hell you can build a great team for next to nothing anyway! I recently bought Thiago Silva to slot into my various defences, bit of an animal but not sure he’s worth 140,000 coins.

Pato is quality in this game, maybe even better than he was last year.
