FIFA 20 Team Maintenance

U4GM Teams suggest that having a strong squad of around 20 players is essential. Not only will this keep your squad fresh and fighting fit it will also allow you to have a play around with different starting 11’s and keep the game enjoyable. If you played with the same 11, every game then you’d pick up injuries; have to spend lots of your coins buying fitness cards. By resting a player or rotating your squad you won’t have to spend money on fitness boosting cards which, leaves you more to spend on the players you are chasing in the market. Of course, if you’ve settled on a starting 11 that is working for you and you’re winning most of your games then stick with that. Even more so if you’re not worried or struggling for FIFA 20 coins.

DON’T DISCARD OR QUICK SELL PLAYERS
This is extremely crucial for FIFA 20. With EA introducing the squad building challenge mode within FUT 19 you can now use players that you may have just discarded, in previous years to complete various challenges. In return, you’ll get a mixture of the coin, pack and even special player cards as rewards. Obviously, the more you give up for these challenges, the better the reward will be.
Please be aware, however, that once you’ve used these players in your squad building challenge, they will be taken from your club so use the weaker, less valuable players in your club were possible to do these challenges.

Contracts
Players use one contract point for every game they appear in, even if it’s just from the bench for the last 5 minutes so try not to make any late changes during the game if you can.

If a player’s contract expires, don’t worry, you’ll still keep him in your club. However, you’ll just need to obtain a contract card to use him in a match again. Contract cards can be picked up in packs (because they are given out more often than players!) or from the auction house and usually, you can get lengthy contracts for a small amount of money. Try to have a bank of 3 or 4 contract cards at all times at least so you can quickly use them if needed. Give players who you know you’re not going to sell, lengthy contracts and that is one less hassle to worry about. Also, with contract cards look to buy them during promo packs (which occur regularly so EA can make more money). More people will be buying packs which mean there will be less people searching the auction house and MORE contracts being a quick list so you can pick them up for cheaper and save yourself some valuable FIFA 20 coins.

Finally, you can boost an individual player’s shooting, or heading, or another area, with specific cards. These can be crucial if you’re in a final of an online tournament. Recently we won a 15,000 FIFA 20 coins tournament and a jumbo pack in which we used 5 different attribute boosting cards for the final game. Most of the teams you’ll come up against will use these cards in the final. If you get them in packs (which should be the only place you have obtained them from) don’t quick sell them, keep them in your consumables pile in case you need to use them in a final for example. It may be frowned upon but if you are losing out on 15,000 coins and the opportunity to pack loads of cool items because you didn’t want to use an attribute card then more fool you!

Buy more than 1 manager for your club (rare/shiny ones)
You may think, why is FIFA Expert telling us to do this? Here is why. If you buy lots of gold shiny card managers (the most well-known ones) then each time you add them to your club that will add 3% to any contract card you apply. On FIFA 18 we had several managers in all the gold, silver and bronze categories so, every time we applied a contract card to one of our players the value of that card had a 50% boost so when we were buying contract cards worth 28 games we were getting 42 games instead of the 28. It will save you more coins to invest in players especially if you are the sort of player who will be playing 100’s of games on FUT.

How to FIFA 20 Force Quits

Now, this isn’t something that U4GM FIFA 20 Coins Team condone, so to speak, but we have done this in the past to close games out. Usually in 4 scenarios:

1. If the opponent has been trying to wind you up by ‘shushing’ you in their celebrations or running around the screen rather than getting on with the game;

2. Time wasting/parking the bus as soon as they have gone in front;

3. We’re playing a super team and stamina of our player is low;

4. We need a win to reach the next level of Elite 1 rewards, for example.

As we mentioned, it’s not something we like to do but needs must sometimes. Time, for us, is very pushed and limited on weekends so for us, forcing rage quits allows us to get more games in and therefore, hit the better rewards. Pause the game, if you have pauses remaining then use them and tinker with your tactics and player instructions. Even if you just pause the game to compose yourself, this will lead to your opponent becoming frustrated by having to wait therefore increasing your chances to create another opportunity to force a rage quit by scoring another goal, for example. Gameplay styleThe most frustrating thing, which we’re sure you can relate to, is not being able to get the ball back when you’re chasing the game and you need a goal. It’s pretty simple really if you don’t have the ball, you can’t score. Changing to a possession-based play style will frustrate you opponent, lead to them flying into tackles, pulling their players out of position and tiring them out. This will likely lead to a good goal scoring chance for yourself, possibly a red card and/or a rage quit if they just can’t get the ball from you. This can be done as early as you like, we usually have a rule where if we got two goals in front then we change to the possession style and begin to really take extra care of the ball.

TOP TIP – Change to a possession style either by using the direction pad quick tactics OR pause the game, if you have any left and change the custom tactics to a short passing style.
This will mean your players will look to create lots of short passing options for you and you can play that quick passing style that’s so annoying to play against.

Cut scenes
We only really use this method if the opposition has done it to us. For example, watching their goal even if it was a lucky bobble or a tap in goal. Watching cut scenes is something that used to really frustrate us but now, not so much. We do, however, know that other people will hate this and this will really affect their mood.

EA like to showcase these cut scenes, for some bizarre reason and some are extremely tedious, especially towards the latter part of the game. If you watch these, where you see players reacting to a save or a close attempt etc, it’ll only annoy your opponent and may result in them quitting the game, particularly if they are 2 or more goals behind.

Set-pieces
This tip can definitely lead to an early finish to a game for you. Set-pieces are a way to run down the clock towards the end of the game. Because of a flaw in the game, EA has left far too long before a kick can be automatically taken, meaning you get over 10 seconds of actual time to wind the clock down. You can take your time with throw-ins, corners, goal kicks and free kicks from anywhere on the field.

TOP TIP – We definitely use this sparingly and it’s almost certain to earn you some abuse in a message from your opponent and we rarely use it, only against people who have tried doing similar to this from an early stage in the game.
You can wait for a while, whilst the clock ticks down and then change the throw-in or set-piece taker which will then result in you being able to take even more time off the clock. This CAN be done a few times but it depends how much you want to push your luck!

Celebrations
Celebrations don’t really bother us too much, just serves as motivation to get back in the game or not concede again. However, watching people on YouTube and Twitch and conducting research on Twitter, the celebrations always seem to be one of the things that trigger people into a rage more than most other things.
There are certain ones which will frustrate your opponents like the shush or the hand to the ear. Others like the dab or them stupid long dance routines will also annoy people so feel free to learn those and use them to try and force people to quit.

TOP TIP – Use the celebrations, particularly towards the latter stages that take a long time to watch, like the ones to the camera or to the side of the pitch to teammates or celebrating with the crowd to take more time off the clock.
As we have said, use these ‘tips’ as little as you can. We only revert to these methods of trying to force quits, if the opponent is obviously trying to wind us up on the other side of the game.
