FIFA 13's Ultimate Team mode can be pretty daunting for newcomers.
A complex market of players must be penetrated from the off. Are you getting value for money? It's a question that consumers must consider with every purchase.
Starting off with a poor team is no fun at all—especially when playing online. You possess the financial prowess of Portsmouth, while everyone else seems to have the never ending funds of Paris Saint-Germain, right?
Well, not necessarily. Excellent teams can be constructed for little money. If you look in the right place, there's plenty of bargains to be had.
I've put together five budget teams. I wanted to keep the cost down, so haven't spent more than 1,500 coins on one player. To ensure each 11 is filled with quality, I also ensured the average rating didn't drop below 80.
These teams enjoy 100 percent chemistry. Quite often, this sense of morale is more important than spending 200,000 coins on a star individual.
Note: 4-1-2-1-2 cards are typically more expensive due to their popularity. The same goes for Premier League players.
