    I see... I imagine that would be a rare card. :holmes:

    Will have to look for Martin Jol. :ninja:
    Nope, not that rare. Usually loads on the marketplace. Some greedy ****s out there who list them for like 2000 coins though :hmmm:

    Martin Jol is a good choice & only about 150 coins

    Basically, it's like pokemon trading cards.

    You get a set of cards to build a squad initially, the quality of a set of cards is determined by whether it's Bronze, Silver or Gold - player skill is determined by a value just like in normal Fifa.

    You gain coins by winning games and tournaments. You can also gain coins buy auctioning your players online, people can bid or 'buy now' or trade for your card, which is why I described as being a bit like eBay.

    You can get cards to improve players, you can buy these from the online market or get them from buying packs from the in-game store.

    Your goal is to build the ultimate team starting from a random generated starting squad, though approximately the computer gives you players of between 50-60 overall.

    You can use real life money to buy the Gold packs from the in-game store. You use coins to bid and buy from the market.

    So it's possible to eventually get a gold rated team without spending a penny?

    Yep, but I bought 2 for the lulz... £1.19 per pack IIRC (The gold 'special edition' pack). Same number of cards of the standard pack but with 2 extra rares. Standard pack is 79p. :woo:

    Yeah... 35 yard volley I heard. :woo:

    There are online tournaments but I've not tried yet. There's loads of trophies, some with requirements i.e. max players from 1 nation: 4.

    :fyi: Messi is 99 overall. :eek3: Van Persie's free kick was going in! :dry:
