Yeap, mine was updated as well today. Have finished 3 teams in 2 days. Fairly proud of myself. Even though that last two countries I had completed DID NOT give me the 5,000 credits. I don't know if this is intentional or not but that sucks ass. FYI the two countries were Spain and Germany.

Partido and Capitano Red are up at the moment. Dont have the credits to grab for you so hurry!! :(

anolop
07-19-2008, 05:23 PM
The completion of a country only give you 5,000 credits for the first country, not the second and third++

I'm also missing Partido, so if someone could buy it for me, I'll be online almost everynight at 10pm GMT :)

EOU Findub
07-19-2008, 08:13 PM
I already bought the Partido one...sorry. :( I needed it and I had never seen it before. Also need the Capitano Red but didn't want to play 5 more games to get it. Especially because it seems to be the most common finale ball out there.

Jissi
07-20-2008, 06:00 AM
Yesterday evening I was short of 2,000 credits to buy the last missing kit I was looking for. By today morning of course it was gone, so I felt quite miserable for not being able to get rid of the ongoing pain of flipping through those damned kits.

Then all changed.

First, I found my last missing german card, completing the county (no bonus credits). Then I opened a gold pack to find the last, one and only missing ball (Finale Capitano). Looking at the 3-5% odds of getting a ball in a pack and that there are 39 different balls, by chances were like 0.07% - 0.12% (around one in a thousand). :) :) :)

By the way, completing the balls gives 2,000 credits.

Riding my lucky wave, I immediately bought another gold pack, just to crack an Athina Capitano. EOU Findub, you are the closest guy to finish the album, let me know when you'll be online, I'll put it up for the usual 5,000 if you need it. Gamertag is Jissi.

So guys, it seems a lucky day today, keep opening those packs... :)

EOU Findub
07-20-2008, 06:17 AM
Thanks for that. Getting that will only make 7 balls left. Also hope I can come up with 10,000 creds for that Capitano Red as well. How many cards do you have left before you complete your album? Nice to see our little group is getting closer by the day. I really don't know what I am going to do with my time after I finish this game. :) Anyways, thanks again Jissi!

Lots of Gold balls for trade just 1 hour ago! 6-7 Gold balls, but not the ones I'm missing... I found the FINALE POWERORANGE CAPITANO ball tonight, but I'd pay 10,000 credits for the last FINALE POWERORANGE ball!

EOU Findub
09-15-2008, 04:59 AM
Thank you so much Anolop for the heads up! Glad I checked on here before I went to bed. Found the Capitano Red...only 4 more left!!! I can't believe I am getting so close...it is ridiculous.

anolop
09-15-2008, 09:31 AM
The Finale Glider Real Madrid and the Finale Glider FCB was also for sale.. I'm sorry, I should have bought them for you :( I didn't think about that..

I could sure go for the Real Madrid ball if Findub doesn't want it ;)

anolop
09-21-2008, 10:47 PM
hehem you're up next :D Findub was asking for it first, but it's not a rare ball, so I'll buy it again next time it comes up. And I'm sure that will be within the month ;)

EOU Findub

Great news for both of you now! I have 2x FINALE CAPITANO balls in my trade pile!!! I just bought one copy for 5,000 now, and I know that I'm getting the same ball in 10 goldpacks ;) So I can't sell both tonight, one of you might have to wait until tomorrow or wednesday...

I'm also getting the FINALE GLIDER CHELSEA in 27 gold packs, if any of you are interested...

Richiee
09-22-2008, 12:24 PM
Damn, you're finding too many gold balls. I'll join Live today to collect the products. It's also strange that the Powerorange doesn't show up for you.

anolop
09-22-2008, 02:36 PM
Yeah! I've got about 5-6 gold balls the last 100k, but no POWERORANGE :( Am I the only player buying gold pack? Are everybody else buying silver ones?? I really hope you find my missing REAL BETIS away kit soon, it's driving me crazy! When are you online Richee??

As I said, I've got a FINALE CAPITANO in my tradi pile and another coming to me in 10 gold packs. Whoever is online and ready to buy the CAPITANO ball first, gets it. The other has to wait until tomorrow or wednesday ;)

EOU Findub
09-22-2008, 04:07 PM
How do you know when the balls are coming to you...I am extremely interested....

EOU Findub
09-22-2008, 04:09 PM
Oh yea, I am also an avid Gold Pack buyer...when I find all the balls is when I will switch to the Silvers due to me needing that damn Galatsaray Away kit....

anolop
09-22-2008, 04:27 PM
when I got 35,000 credits, I'm buying gold packs without saving to see if I get the POWERORANGE ball soon... When I don't have any more credits, I just restart the game.. And cause I didn't save, I still have all my credits ;)

anolop
09-22-2008, 04:30 PM
Oh yea, I am also an avid Gold Pack buyer...when I find all the balls is when I will switch to the Silvers due to me needing that damn Galatsaray Away kit....
Then we have the same tactics ;)

Richiee
09-22-2008, 08:54 PM
I've tried that too, but it doesn't help. I mean: When you restart the game, the order of gold packs are the same, so if you find a gold ball in pack no 12 for example, you will still have to buy 12 packs to get that ball. And if you realize that there are no gold balls for atleast 200 packs, like it usually is for me, you must spend 200,000 credits to get another chance to get a gold ball.

Sure it's fun to see into the future, but you aint there until you're there.

EOU Findub
09-22-2008, 09:08 PM
You guys know that if you load up a golden ticket game and then go back to the main menu, the packs change...just a little trick to keep in mind...

I believe I tried that once with a negative result. Will sure give it a try again though, as I'm much more serious with the whole collecting-part now. Would sure make scouting packs a whole lot cheaper. And I believe mr Anolop is complete with his album by now :p

anolop
09-23-2008, 07:38 PM
GREAT tip EOU Findub! I just got the FINALE POWERORANGE ball :D

And I've got around 50,000 credits to whoever finds the REAL BETIS away kit! You're both getting alot of that cr pile EOU and Richee ;)

EOU Findub
09-23-2008, 08:57 PM
Just here to help. :) Congratulations again on finding that last ball and for getting me THREE gold balls in as many days AND finding the Galatasaray SK kit...you are the freaking man. We just need to find you that Real Betis kit...and I only need to find that Finale Glider ball!!!

Richiee
09-23-2008, 09:24 PM
Yeah that tip really did the trick. So far today, I've had 7 gold balls. I will keep an eye out for your remaining cards, you're extremely close now. My bet is you'll both be done before next week.

EOU Findub
09-24-2008, 04:31 AM
The really crappy thing is that I have found Finale Glider Chelsea twice...but no others...and I only have 5k credits right now so I have to reset the game every 5 times I buy the cards. :(

EOU Findub
09-24-2008, 04:43 AM
FOUND A REAL BETIS AWAY KIT IN MY FINAL GOLD PACK FOR THE NIGHT!!!!!! It is sitting in my trade pile waiting for Mr. Anolop to scoop it away and finish his collector's album!

anolop
09-24-2008, 06:57 AM
Oh my God, I think I'm gonna cry! I can't belive I'm finished with this thing.. You'll be online same time today as yesterday?? (That would be in 12-13 hours after this post).

I've got around 30k to give away, and since you are missing one card as well EOU, I'll give you 20k and Richee 10k. I'm selling away my Ultimate team, and would possibly get 10k for those cards as well...

Richiee
09-24-2008, 02:18 PM
Big gratz Anolop, very nice job. I finished "All balls" today and I'm only 5 cards short for the album. Must feel a little empty though, with nothing to collect anymore ;)

anolop
09-24-2008, 02:49 PM
I do and that's sad... This game has given me so much joy and frustrationat the same time. I really hope they make another game :D

I will check a few times tonight for EOU's ball and your kits, but I'm ginong to bed early, so I don't think I will be online for long..

EDIT: I was checking which cards you were missing Richee, but you haven't written which cards youre missing from Italy and Spain.. So which ones is it??

EOU Findub
09-24-2008, 03:13 PM
Awww...now your making me sad. It is crazy that the people you end up meeting through by doing these things. We will have to find another game that takes a crazy long amount of time to finish..but minimal effort. :) I will be glad to finally give the kit to you and to finish up your album.

Richiee, anolop is right...if you post the rest of your needs, all the quicker for us to find them for you. :)

Richiee
09-24-2008, 06:04 PM

I have a major OCD with this game and have pretty much only got a few hundred cards so far... do you think some of you guys could help me out?

EOU Findub
09-25-2008, 04:11 AM
Only a few hundred..whoo boy do you have a long ways to go...do you keep restarting your ultimate team so that you pretty much have every single bronze card available? (including kits/badges?) You should have at least 500-600 cards if you are doing it this way. I also suggest you scour the servers for cheap cards. I am always putting silver cards on there for 100 and gold players/badges for 200. I honestly don't know how we could help with you being so far behind us...I only use the packs that give me the cards I need and discard the rest...and I only need 1 card!!!! I suggest you find a group of 4-5 guys and just start collecting together. If you get a great group of guys that really help each other out, it makes things 10x easier. I wish you luck my friend.

anolop
09-26-2008, 09:50 PM
Nice work guys, you're almost there. Here's my list:

Missing cards:
Middlesborough Away
Blackburn Away

If you're still missing the Blackburn away kit, I have it for you ;) I kan give it to you tomorrow if you want it, plus 10,000 credits! I don't need them any more;)

@EOU Findub: It seems like my friend Zippo has a status of "away", so I'll get the ball for you tomorrow too. Same time ;)

Richiee
09-26-2008, 10:34 PM
Blackburn away is still needed. Just gonna find some more xbox live gold codes as I used my last the day you finished your album. Probably gonna hunt down the last cards offline now, since it feels like the market is just there if you need crappy gold cards that litterally everybody owns but belive they are worth a lot just because they're gold.

EOU Findub
09-27-2008, 04:49 AM
Isn't that the truth about the gold cards though? Buncha nubs...but if people keep buying them, they will keep selling them for that amount...

Okey, I'll try to be online by the end of this week. What complicates matters is that my Xbox decided to die 2 days ago. But the harddrive is still OK and I'll enter live from a friends console. Huge thanks for searching up those to cards even then you're finished with your album.

Kits (2)
Betis Away, Bordeaux away

Players (4)

Nantes - 2 (any of Capoue, Cubillier, Fae, Signorino, Cetto, Savinaud)

Athletic Club - 2 (I don't have a list of their squad so I'm not sure which ones).

That's a good idea...

Is there anyway of knowing when I have got all of the Bronze cards? do you get bonus credits for that?

How can I get credits for cards when I only get around 500 per match...?

EDIT: I've just completed my first 3 teams but am really struggling with the balls - they are SO expensive!

Is it possible for someone to help me out and post them cheaply so I can concentrate on Kits and Badges... I have a total checklist drawn up and everything!!

EOU Findub
10-05-2008, 07:39 PM
There really isn't any way of knowing for sure whether or not you have gotten all of the Bronze Cards. I made a compilation for the English and French players on the forums here. Feel free to make a list for all of the German, Italian, Spanish, and "Other" teams. It really isn't that hard...just takes awhile.

You DO NOT receive bonus credits for getting all of the bronze players. The only time you receive bonus credits is when you:
1. Complete a team (and only sometimes, EA screws you out of this for some reason even though it says you have gotten the credits)
2. Complete a Country (you only get this ONCE)
3. Complete any of the challenges
4. Play a game and get the credits
5. Complete either the "boots" "balls" "Classic Balls" or "Stadiums" portion of the album...this nets you 1000-2000 credits.
6. Finish the album.

I will make a new thread later today with some helpful tips on getting 900-1700 credits for a 3/4 minute half game.

barbour99
10-05-2008, 09:31 PM
Thanks...

That would help... I've got about 600 cards... do we know what the total amount is?

and how am I ever going to get all of the 5,000 credit balls?

Drake Sabidge
10-06-2008, 06:02 PM
There's 1614 cards in all (give or take a few, I'm coming up with the stadiums, balls and boots off the top of my head).

I've been doing play now against a modified Bucharest team, with all the crappy subs in and their formation set so everyone is on the outside. That gets me a bunch of credits a game. Unfortunately, my game seems to crash when I whoop up on a team, so I've been letting the computer play and I jump back in at the very end (while I do something else like surf the internet or read). It takes a long long while, but eventually you get enough credits. I have about just enough credits right now to finish off my album, but you also have to wait on people to post the right cards.

My suggestions are:

a. Make sure you jump on silver cards while they are there as people tend to post these far less frequently than the gold cards (which if you scan around enough can come cheaply)
b. Jump on balls while they are there because they get bought up quickly
c. Jump on away kits because these tend to be more rare (and more expensive).

At your stage, you can probably pull more that a few cards out of packs still, but as you get closer to the end, it's rare you'll get the ones you need and you'll have to buy from the card transfer screen. Also, don't get too stingy in waiting for a lot of prices to come down. I was like that for a while, but once I shifted to just building up creds and buying expensive cards, I got most of the rarer ones.

EOU Findub
10-06-2008, 09:07 PM
Are you mashing "A" when the animation for substitutions come up? That is how my game crashes all the time. It seems to not like it when I skip any animations so I just let them run their course. :) Seems to work just fine.

I completely agree with Drake on the point of DO NOT wait for the prices to go down. If it is a rare card, people will pay ridiculous prices to get them and you will miss out. MAX for bronze = 500, Silver = 1000 so its really not that bad to pick up that rare silver card for 1k creds.

I also have 34,000 extra credits that I am never going to use so if anyone needs them just let me know.

My problem at the minute is not having credits...

I just got the Chelsea and Troyes badge for a total of 600 - i thought that was good business!

and can i have those credits please EOU? I have sent a PM too :) they would help a lot!

EOU Findub
10-07-2008, 04:04 AM
The Troyes badge....not so much. Chelsea was a DECENT deal. Badges are fairly common, the only one that I had trouble finding was Werder Bremen badge. Anyways, we should set up a time to give you the credits. Don't go wasting them all on packs. ;)

Are you mashing "A" when the animation for substitutions come up? That is how my game crashes all the time. It seems to not like it when I skip any animations so I just let them run their course. :) Seems to work just fine.

Yeah, and I figured that was what was causing it as well. I've lost more than a few credits having the game crash on me.

EOU Findub
10-07-2008, 05:05 PM
While incredibly annoying to have to sit and watch the substitutions, it is worth it rather than have to completely start your whole 360 over again. :)

It was a total so I think the Troyes was 200 and Chelsea was 400 - it was also selling for 2,500...

I am in the UK, so timing would be difficult...
I am not available on LIVE this weekend either so it would have to be some time next week... When I get back on LIVE I will add you if you don't mind and then we could do it when we were both on or if you can match your time to UK and let me know what suits you we can fix one from there.
Really appreciate the time that you are willing to put in to help me out :)

Thanks...

Would you recommend I spend the credits on just finding the kits and badges that I need and not packs? I recently deleted my Ultimate Team anyway and so can only buy Bronze packs for now - DOH!

Drake Sabidge
10-10-2008, 05:16 AM
You can probably pick up a good number of the silver/gold cards still buying packs at this point. Maybe 2-4 per silver pack. I wouldn't abandon hope on that front, especially since it seems like there are fewer player cards getting posted these days.

I'm down to six needed. When I finish, I'll give you whatever credits I have left as well (should be a few thousand). In the meantime, I'm still posting silver player cards for about 200 each. I might take them down to 100 just to help out. You should buy any of the ones that are cheap like that (not just mine). :D Get as much quantity wise for your credits now. Don't forget to target teams that you are about to finish off their pages for the credit boost.

EOU Findub
10-10-2008, 07:18 AM
Just be smart about it. If you think something is overpriced but is a rare card that you have only seen once, you are going to regret not buying it. I can't tell you how many times I had the credits but didn't buy a card because I thought it was personally too expensive.

Good to hear you are so close Drake. Good luck with finding those last six...they really are a bitch to find.

barbour99
10-10-2008, 08:25 AM
I am focusing at the minute on finding badges and kits so that I can focus purely on players whilst occasionally looking for the spare gold ball now and then...

Would you guys recommend I continue to do that or spend some time looking for players too - and im guessing that your guides are gonna come in really handy at the player stage...

EOU Findub
10-10-2008, 04:38 PM
I would start looking for any cards you need...that way your aren't missing out on anything and continually search for new ones. Like Drake said, fewer and fewer people are trading because they either don't play this game anymore, or finish their album and have no need.

barbour99
10-12-2008, 08:44 AM
I've just got back on live and there are loads of cheap cards for trade...
I have just 79 credits. Can't play some matches just now and am desperate for credits.
EOU - Please add me on XBOX LIVE - my gamertag is on the left and so is a link to my gamercard.
Would be great to work out a time to transfer those credits. :)

Okey, I'll try to be online by the end of this week. What complicates matters is that my Xbox decided to die 2 days ago. But the harddrive is still OK and I'll enter live from a friends console. Huge thanks for searching up those to cards even then you're finished with your album.
I still have your cards Richee, are you able to get online or do you still have problems with your xbox??

Richiee
10-13-2008, 02:07 PM
The console is coming back in a few days from repair. A tip to you: If your console brakes down, it has to be sent down to Frankfurt for repair and that takes like 2 weeks from when you send it to the day you can pick it up. So don't let it die!

Anyway, sorry for letting you wait, I'm working on it.

Well, my credits are gone...never to be seen again. Good luck to all of you who seek to complete your albums. I only have two achievements left for this monster...the two worst achievements to get...(50 MoTM with Middie and Defender)

barbour99
10-16-2008, 11:52 AM
MASSIVE thanks to anolop and EOU who offloaded a lot of their credits to me...

I need about 15 gold balls, 15 badges, 15 home kits, a whole host of away kits and then the remaining players...

I am noticing that there are fewer and fewer cards being posted and some I have never seen!

If anyone has any rare or hard to find (i.e. gold balls) in their trade pile please let me know...

I WILL complete this album one way or another...

anolop
10-16-2008, 01:36 PM
All I can say now is GOOD LUCK to you ;)

@ EOU Findub: The MoM achievements aren't really that hard. Their just time consuming :( Use Barcelona to get those achievements. They have good defenders and Ronaldinho (AM). You can also go to Team Management and trade away all strikers and trade in some good midfielders :D

barbour99
10-16-2008, 10:13 PM
thank you anolop. I'm online again now trying to just knock off as many cards as I can...
Going to buy some silver packs and then hopefully trade any duplicates for more credits...
Does anyone have any balls, kits or badges in their trade piles?

and how did you get SO many credits?!

10-20-2008, 06:54 AM
I didn't realise quite how many credits I am going to need to finish this bad-boy...

Flicking through my album, I don't have ANY Villareal or Athletic Club players and still need a lot of kits - luckily I have most of the badges now with just a few left to pick up from each league... The away kits are annoying and EXPENSIVE on the market too... I do have the 300 match winner achievement to work towards so will have to do some of them on World Class and try to pick up the credits!

This is going to take AGES :(

I'm still working my way through the album... knocking off a few more teams today and many kits and a few badges too...

I have lots of teams that just need 1 or 2 cards that I can't find!

It's coming together slowly though - any credits anyone has spare would be great!!!!

EOU Findub
11-04-2008, 05:27 AM
Good work barbour..glad to see you're still working at it. I manage to get in a few MoTM games here and there to get the 1000k. With gamefly its difficult though with new games being sent to you all the time. You'll get there eventually though. Extremely satisfying when you get that final card and the error message. :)

Alphonse
11-04-2008, 05:42 AM
yo Barbour let me know if u need some help with credits. I dont mind buying 10-20k cards from you. Credits are useless to me anyway

Chrispy Ware
11-04-2008, 09:34 AM
Do you think I could maybe have some of the credits too? I'd greatly appreciate it, what with people charging 5,000 credits for rare jerseys and soccer balls and such........

I now only need the Bordeaux away kit, will give 20000 credits and gold cards from trade pile if anyone wants trade.

If it is just one... there was a method that EOU Findub mentioned about buying packs and not saving until you run out of credits (or find the card) and the changing a setting so that the cards are different and continually doing that... Eventually you wold find your card...

EOU - what error message do you get when you finish the album?!

Thanks to HRD for the 2 away kits today... I'm pretty much at the stage when I can write down what I need to get but still have too many to list on here as there are LOTS of away kits...

EOU Findub
11-06-2008, 02:53 AM
You know, I have no idea what the error message was...it was really weird. I finished it, the achievement popped up and then it gave me an error message. I was like...that was extremely anti-climatic.

CONGRATS to you!

There seems to be a few guys finishing it up... I want to get it done quickly but then still have all the MOTM ones to get and I know that will take ages... Plus I need around 20 Gold balls so I need bundles of credits!

Will get there soon enough and will keep you guys updated when I get to my last few in case you have them sitting in your trade piles!

I'm gonna try to check my own trade pile pretty much every night now as a matter of habit before going to bed...

Wow, people are still playing this game! And I thought me and EOU was late :D

With too many great titles out now I haven't had much time playing for those MoM achievements... ah well, I've spent more than 300 hours on this game so you could say I'm a bit sick of it..

There are a few playing it - and a few have finished recently...

I got it off eBay for 4 and was just playing for the CL experience but have been dragged in to the card collecting and now I can't let it go!

Not had any time with PES and Gears 2 out but will find the time here and there to crawl along with album progression...

4 is great value compared to the time I will spend on it...

EDIT: Just completed the spanish badges and 2 german teams... Still need Liverpool, Cagliari and Charlton badges to complete all of them...

barbour99
11-15-2008, 11:44 PM
I would like anyone who cares to know that I only need the Caglairi badges to complete the bagdes and 73 kits...

Almost all of the teams have at least 5 players now as well and I'm narrowing down the teams that I know...

Does anyone have any advice on how to keep track of the players that I need so I don't buy duplicates?

Thanks in advance - and special KUDOS to HRDGRK for all his efforts... Is anyone else in a similar position to me and maybe we can buddy up?

EOU Findub
11-16-2008, 01:07 AM
Dang...you still have 73 kits to go!? That is still a bunch...whoo boy.

In regards to keeping track of players for you...I have created a list for all the players available in England and France. This should help you at least in that area. The only other way that could help you is if you create a word document and write down all available players. This helps so you can search for individual players instead of a wide group if need be.

Also, you can continuously start your Ultimate Team over and put all of the Bronze players in your album. This is a great way to start your album and increase the amount you have in your album as well. Anyways, that is all the tips I have for you. I wish you luck with your album!

barbour99
11-16-2008, 10:29 AM
I've raided the Ultimate Team as best as I could...

Just picked up my last badge, Cagliari, for 100CR this morning and added the Le Mans and Toulouse away kits - expensive but I'd never seen them before so snapped them up...

Will go through the checklist now and cross off the players I have...

So now it is 71 kits... haha

Yeah we should help each other out, but now that I think about it I'm really far from completing the album, I still need 143 players, mostly silver and gold, 33 badges, and like 90 kits, :eek: damn I didn't realize I had so many left :(, I also need 3 bronze balls and 8 gold balls also Parc des Princes to complete the stadiums, is that really a rare card? cause I've bought a lot of packs and I can't find it and I haven't seen it on the servers either. Anyways, post what you need and I will help you if I can ;)

davjamdan
01-06-2009, 03:10 PM
parc de princes is not that rare it was the first stadium i got, i still need quite a lot as well really mostly gold & silver.
i need quite a few kits mostly after BLACKBURN AWAY, EVERTON AWAY, MAN CITY HOME & AWAY, NEWCASTLE HOME & AWAY.
if i can get FC PORTO HOME & AWAY & JUVENTUS AWAY, i will only need about 10 players to complete rest of europe group

omma2289

I got your message, unfortunately the card wasn't there when I got home, but I found another way to get it, I used my brother's profile to create a new team until I got it, thanks anyway.

I have NEWCASTLE HOME for you, I also have these in my trade pile if you need any:
RACING HOME, MAINZ 05 HOME, REAL BETIS HOME, SEVILLA HOME, EINT. FRANKFURT HOME, ARSENAL AWAY, CHELSEA AWAY, CELTIC AWAY, VALENCIA AWAY & HAMBURGER AWAY

I updated my stats, I'm now 81 players, 64 kits, 14 badges and 7 balls away from completing my album

I need these 2 bronze balls if you happen to see them:
Adidas F50.6XITE (White with Blue X)
Adidas MB Predator Glider (Blue & White)

davjamdan
01-10-2009, 04:05 PM
no it bloody annoys me when u need 1 card for a team and its a ridiculous price takes to much effort to earn points and spend them all on 1 card.
You should post what cards your after and if i get any you need i will hold on to them for you and post when we are online toghether for a cheap price.

EOU Findub
01-10-2009, 06:43 PM
Well...some of those Silvers ARE worth 1000. However, a lot of them aren't. You can usually get 1300-1900 credits per 4 minute match on the highest difficulty...so credits shouldn't really be a concern. There is also a trick to keep buying packs and never lose your credits...however, I completely forgot the specifics. Maybe I will jump on to try to remember.

barbour99
01-10-2009, 09:44 PM
I'm still grinding away at this game..

Findub's method of buying cards is buy packs until you find the one or two rare cards that you need and then if you spend loads without finding the cards, do not save anything and then if you load up a Golden Ticket match. Quit the match and then return to buy the cards and they will be new packs that you can go through and repeat the sequence.

hope that makes sense. I too need mainly away kits.

Have found all stadiums, boots and badges. I have about half of all of the players and about 3/5 of all kits...

Shyanistic
01-11-2009, 04:09 AM

Yes I found out about the "Y" thing recently, wish I would've known earlier, the thing is there are really few traders now and it's getting really hard for me to find a card I need online, I'm down to the last 3% of my album and I'm guessing this is going to be the hardest part.

Sorry to hear about your disc, same thing happened to me a few months back and I had to buy a new one from ebay, hope you get yours soon

Even though when I go to Ultimate Team, it says 'Get Started' and has no record of any of the last 6 months collecting I have done?

Will try it next time I get to LIVE, but I think it is the save file that has been messed up...

Mmm, if you lost the cards on yours collectors album then maybe the file is messed up because I never lost those
