Last month to test stamina I ran just 5 guys and bronzes for a week. Along the way in those 20 games or so, I may have run into 1 or 2 players who were using just 5. (stamina is meaningless i can report)
Fast forward to this week, after selling a lot of my top guys, I decided to run a budget ruby/amy-ish squad of 10 in the mid 80s OVR and 6 of the last 8 games on MTU have been against 5-man only squads with most filled with T-mac, Yao, etc using just 5 with bronzes to get that lower OVR.
Respect that they didn’t do the BTB cheese, but I guess this is the new thing running 5 only. Can’t blame them b/c the game’s busted, but it’s tough running lower tiered cards, at least for me.
I also see a lot of newbie-ish players doing it so I guess some streamer must be pushing it.
