I currently find myself Division 7, and Madden 21 coins while I understand there will be people reading this chuckling to themselves at such a diminished achievement, the gap in my overall play is night and day. If I could play myself from two or three weeks past, I'd probably win 15-0; the advancement has been dramatic. I am still making silly mistakes and panicking defensively once I should not, and I'm not scoring as many goals as I feel I need to be, but there's no question I've improved a great deal.
The next steps for me are to work on enhancing what I've got. There are better versions of Pogba and Kante, for example, which would boost my midfield for a fee; I would love to find somebody like Eric Cantona upfront, but I know it's going to set me back millions of Coins. I'm at a stage now, with my squad, at which I am basically trading any cards that I earn and saving my Coins so I can make minor improvements to the gamers I have already got.
I have really mostly enjoyed playing online; no one uses a mic so I haven't encountered anywhere near the quantity of abuse I confronted in Madden NFL 21. I did receive some very salty messages, but generally I think FIFA 21's matchmaking works nicely; I feel as though I'm playing against players in a roughly similar skill level, and this is contributing to some competitive matches with entertaining ebbs-and-flows; sometimes I get roundly beaten by a better player, other times I win professionally as well. Fair.
As such, unlike Madden NFL 21, I believe I'm going to keep on playing throughout the rest of the season. I'm well on my way to qualifying for a Weekend League today, and while I'd hope to get thumped with that sort of contest, I have set myself a goal to keep advancing my squad and see how I match up in that kind environment; I'll definitely write about my very first Weekend League once I create it. If I could get only one win, I would be quite happy.
I do think FIFA 21's Ultimate Team places a bit too much emphasis on your squad; a better player with an equal squad will conquer you, but a better player with a team that is better will surely demolish you. With some cards above 90 bringing prices in the millions, it does not necessarily feel totally honest. But building a competitive squad is addictive, and I am not sure it would have the same appeal if you may easily add, say, Cristiano Ronaldo for your roster.
I think what the sport needs is a better suite of manners, particularly for offline play. Squad Battles was useful for me when I had been learning how to play the match, but I compare it to something such as Conquest and Showdown in MLB The Show 21, and I am much more compelled to really use my gamers offline at cheap Madden nfl 21 coins those modes than I'm to do anything in FIFA 21. There's loads EA Sports could do here, but it feels as though it's put all of its focus on multiplayer, and left solo drama to languish.
