My Best Ultimate Team Club yet

This is probably my final Fifa 15 post and rightly so, as it’s been a little over a month since the release of Fifa 16 which I had pre-ordered and am currently playing. I did feel the need to create a post about all the players in my final Club in Fifa 15 Ultimate team as I think it was my best Ultimate Team lineup by far in my 4 years of playing Fifa Ultimate Team.

Fifa 15 was probably my best Ultimate Team year due to the sheer number and quality of players that I got in packs or managed to buy. It was also the year where I obtained by first ever Inform player In Ultimate Team as well as my first ever Team of the season Player.

Ironically, I only managed to get my hands on Fifa 15 during the Christmas holidays as that is when I bought my PS4 as well the Holiday edition of Fifa 15. So not only was I about 4 months late to the party, I hadn’t even pre-ordered it which means no weekly packs for me sadly.

I do however remember buying quite a bit of fifa points in order to open packs on multiple occasions which might be the reason behind my Fifa 15 Ultimate Team success.

Fifa 15 was the first year I was able to buy Iniesta for my Ultimate Team. He is one of my favorite players to watch in real life as well as one of my favorite players to use ingame. Iniesta is an absolute gem of a player as his passing is top notch but even more so his dribbling is one of the best in game which I’ve used to edge out the win on more than one occasion.

Every year I play Ultimate Team I form a Liga BBVA team and try to emulate the club that I follow in real life, which is none other than the infamous FC Barcelona and in Fifa 15 I had the most Barcelona players on my Ultimate Team than any previous year.

I had almost everyone from Barcelona including first time addition of Dani Alves to Pique who I have managed to buy every year since Ultimate Team 2011. I was still unable to get the all sought after Messi or Ronaldo cards which I haven’t gotten in 4 years of playing Ultimate Team, hopefully Fifa 16 can be my lucky year.

I did however get a number of other notable players both from FC Barcelona as well other big clubs. Some of the honorable mentions include Neymar (Winter upgraded version), Bale, Robben, Ribery and the Legendary Ibra card. Most of these players were first time entries to my club in Ultimate Team ever!

Awesome attackers weren’t the only thing I was able to pack or buy; I was able to get the coveted Serigo Ramos and Thiago Silva card, although I never DID try them out in the same team and the Centerback Neuer. I jest of course, but he was BEASTLY at defending, defending the ball from going into the back of my net!

Someone once mentioned to me that there was no point in collecting Ultimate Team players as if I just wanted to use Bale or Ronaldo I could just use Real Madrid in Kick off mode or in regular online seasons and that would be that. BUT to me it’s all about the joy of opening a pack and finding a super rare card in it. It probably has something to do with my childhood experiences of opening card packs in real life in the search of those oh so rare holographic pokemon cards. I seem to get a similar rush from opening virtual packs accompanied by an equally similar and all too familiar disappointment and frustration of getting absolute garbage or god forbid a repeat of the same shitty player for the 6th or 7th time which, let me tell you was quite possible.

Nevertheless, my point is that Fifa 15 was my best year in terms of the players that I had in my Ultimate Team club and I managed to do it WITHOUT buying coins from coins sellers. While I did say I bought some packs, I didn’t spend thousands of dollars on Fifa points or even hundreds at that.

And so I wanted to share this with you – the world before I finally moved on for good to Fifa 16 in the hopes of getting an EVEN better Ultimate Team club. Maybe, JUST maybe Fifa 16 is the year where I FINALLY get the ever elusive Ronaldo or Messi, maybe even a Ronaldo or Messi inform or Team of the Season. That alone would top my Fifa 15 club that I was so proud off, but who am I kidding, I probably have a better chance of getting struck my lightning INSIDE my house with the way my pack luck is :P

Fifa 15 Ultimate Team was home to a lot of ‘firsts’ for me, first time Iniesta, first time Dani Alves, first time Neymar, first time Bale and more importantly first inform and first Team of the Season card ever!

I am hoping that Fifa 16 can be home to a few more firsts as well. With the addition of hero and Man of the Match Ultimate Team cards, there are even more choices of rare cards to pack than ever before and although I have never gotten anything other than an inform and a Team of the Season Toni Kroos, I will continue opening packs in the hopes of getting one of these sometime soon.

I did also start recording more of my pack openings, so when I eventually do get my first Ronaldo or Messi, I will probably upload my pack opening reaction for the world to see regardless of how embarrassing it turns out to be.

Here is a video detailing ALL my GOLD players in my club.

Feel free to let me know in the comments below what players you have packed or been able to buy for your Club in Fifa Ultimate Team.
