The search for the perfect midfielder to achieve that coveted "33"-like chemistry feels much like the idea of a Squad Building Challenge now, which feels intentional. These challenges are a fine way to lose an hour doing absolutely nothing. However, EA's'sudoku for football geeks' is best played via the companion app, and FIFA 23 Coins away from Ultimate Team's unresponsive menus for consoles.
In a dark omen of the football game licensing wars to in the future, FIFA has lost the J1 League license this year meaning no more King Kazu. In the end, it was a pivot to an exciting Bronze as well as Silver Australian A League team with the formidable strike force of Hibs forward Martin Boyle and the aptly named David Ball. Much like last year my team, which was my least favorite, caused several angry exits from opponents with million-coin ensembles that exposed Ultimate Team as a gilded farce.
There was a sense of the regret of a double-digit defeat as the pros discovered me out, but. When more people started rolling in, I quickly noticed that playing three players at the back is a swift path to a 3-0 deficit when the wingers of your opponent have the slightest bit of speed (as they do typically). All in all, it's par for the course as far as online multiplayer is concerned with fidgety twitching, and emotion soaring across the board. It's the FIFA we're used to, in its most frustrating form.
However the fact that Ultimate Team's bread and the butter of selling and buying silly little guys is still unrecommendable. Even if I still have some enjoyment every year, I don't pay for it. It's the brutal nature that you're able to quickly fall into debt when you go full Gollum with FUT 23 buy Coins one last precious player pack.
