Let’s help each other out here by posting the cheapest possible solutions (based on average market prices at the time) to the squad building challenges in FIFA 17. Some may challenges may be worth it, others may not, for example spending more money on players to win the (untradable) packs/prize money than it costs to buy them makes no sense.
There are multiple sets of challenges with each set containing multiple individual challenges.
Clearly mention the name of the set and the name of the challenge, then provide a picture of the cheap squad you used to collect your reward.
Pay attention that sometimes the reward is a 2 Player Pack – to avoid confusion, this does not mean you get 2 players pack but rather 1 pack containing 2 players.
Tip 1: for early in the game – keep all your bronze and use them for the easy squad building challenges early on in the game, then immediately open the packs you get from the individual challenges and use the pack pulls to complete the rest of the set (or keep the player if you have a great pack pull!
Tip 2: Make sure to read the challenge requirements proprely. If it’s asking for rares or Gold rares for example. It’s super easy to complete challenges that ask for rares with only bronze rares. If it is asking about a hybrid with 11 nationalities, make sure to check if requires to be from different leagues or not. It is super easy to complete a 11 nation “hybrid” challenge when you are able to only use one league. The opposite is also true when it asks you to complete an 11 league “hybrid” team but it allows you to use only one nation.
Tip 3: an obvious one, but use futhead.com or futwiz.com to make sure your planned squad actually gets the chemistry it should
Tip 4: another obvious one, but slower players tend to be the cheapest options for these challenges
Tip 5: The Brazilians, Dutch and French are probably the nations that appear in almost every league and are easy to use for some hybrids, they can be quite cheap too.
Honestly already sped ahead. I packed walcott with 2.5k or so input (completed the Kick off challenge set TRADEABLE), just get 6 or so 400 coin cards from the same league and nation. I think there’s too many options to work out what is the cheapest though.
Another tip to the guys playing on the Early access, there is an easy challenge just for the early access, its expiring before the game launch and tge reward is nice, so everyone should go for that.
The nations one is pretty easy, it only asks for different nationalities, not different leagues, so you can just pick one league with different nationalities (unless I’ve overlooked something)
The league hybrid one is the only way around, it asks for different leagues, so pick a nation which represents itself in multiple leagues, I think France and the Netherlands are probably the best/cheapest for that one.
The league + nation hybrid is more difficult, but the French and Dutch are probably good options to start with and then go from there, probably add Germany in there (English are probably the most expensive of the bunch).
