Is there a place to see team stats, i.e., team leaders in goals scored, points?

No. None of the EAFB games feature that. They aren't that in depth. Really it's supposed to be a more casual "something to do while I wait for my friends to comment/message back" kind of thing. They will be upgrading it as more users start to play. I can see more in-game strategy options enacted, as well as MAYBE a shootout mode, kind of like the Fifa version.

I played the predictor last night before any games and locked in the score I know I got at least 50% right... why does it still show 0 points? Does it not tabulate on weekends? Or I must have screwed up somehow.

Didn't work for me either. I put the points down for each and saved. I don't know what I could've messed up.

Seems like every game is -2 to practice points. Depending on how many tickets you have you'd lose twice the practic points. If you are still in seasons 1,2,3 or 4 I doubt it makes a difference. I've blown all my game tickets and I haven't lost yet. Just make sure the last practice you take is for a length of time that you'll be away from your computer +4 hours. If you don't log back in within 4 hours of the practice finishing you will lose those points.

I've already defeated the Oilers and Avalanche in the NHL mode. So satisfying to completely drub the Oilers too.

It says it takes up to 3 days to update the results.

I love how they ask what your favourite team is and then give you a limited edition timed card just to tempt you like a carrot into playing... I get Hodgson, you get Seguin. And after the time is up they all to 20 and basically are worthless until you renew them ($).

Yeah. My team is ****ed after he's done. My second best player is Danny Syvret


How much is it to re-up and do you have to keep doing it to keep them at 71?

From many hours spent playing the NFL and MLB games on Facebook, some tips.

1. If you want to get "far" in this game, you need "friends" who play it. And lots of them. Honestly, there are people who play these games with over 1,000 "friends." Friends send you in game gifts, which is where you'll get tickets, game changers, some money. I've never spent money on FB games, but I did start a second account just for games, and added about 500 people who play these games.

2. Don't go crazy buying low end packs. Basically, as you level up, you unlock the better packs. Buy one 1* pack, one 2* star pack, one 3* star pack, one 4* pack, and then buy as many 5* packs you can.

3. Never spend coins on practice. Free practice takes five minutes.

4. Don't spend coins on fans.

5. Scrimmage your friends. I doesn't kill your practice points, and you can get up to 3 tickets that way.

6. Never, ever, EVER buy team packs. Stick with the colour packs. Colour packs guarantee you at least one new player, team packs have no guarantees and are expensive.

So how much real money didnt you spend on it?

I wouldnt put a dime into it. It definitly would lose its appeal if i paid.

Is there any benefit to buying upgrades for my arena? Also, what function do fans serve?

edit: Oh, I see now. They let me play better teams in the pro league.

I just lost the season 3 championship. 4-3. I guess that team was higher ranked than me.
