This is getting ridiculous... Movember cards? On Guy Fawkes Day will all British players get +2 IFs? Will American players get informs on Veteran's Day? Just imagine FIFA 18,19,20, and down the line if they continue at this rate. Childish.

    Still affects the market equilibrium of other players, etc. Game becomes no fun when obtaining valuable cards becomes easier than snapping one's fingers. Inundation of informs has made this practically true.

    Got a point, won't be long until almost every card has a 99 version.

    I agree way to many I like having special cards but theres so many this year already not special cards when every player has one which at this rate won't be far off it :D.

    They've obviously got confused with the direction they were going, for years they pushed for a more realistic game and now there going the other way.

    Its ridiculous. Wonder how these most consistent tots will look when by that time every player will already have a special card.

    I get where you're coming from, but, personally, I think they should have started this a few years ago. It's a card collecting game. There's really no reason they shouldn't have nonsense like this going on all the time.

    So much hate, think all this new stuff is keeping it fresh. Its a video game that has to appeal to all ages. My special cards make it easier for non cash players to obtain higher rated cards. Not everyone is fortunate to have the time to grind the market or chuck real cash at it. Either method is fine for different players.
    Hope the people moaning about more cards didnt use the scream cards over the weekend.

    its funny though. they seem to be good at adding new content that requires money to participate.

    yet new content like adding more cups to play in. they dont bother.

    They should have stuck with previous versions of IFs but include the odd special untradeable sbc.

    I didnt mind the Halloween versions though that was a cool addition but should of left it at that..

    Movember cards getting a bit silly now

    EA will be loving the profit.

    You're playing virtual trading cards, of course it's going to be gimmicky

    Have we not reached a tipping point though

    The best thing about fut was that players who played well in real life got a special card to reflect that

    Then they introduced futties, yeah ok it's the end of the game I suppose that's ok

    But they are laying it on too thick now it's just getting stupid

    It's getting less and less appealing for most people over a certain age (people who have disposable income certainly more than the 12 year olds these gimmicks appeal to)

    The way we're going 100+ cards aren't far off and the game is done for me

    I dont think 100+ will happen anywhete but fut mobile.

    For all these gimmicky cards we have, I dont think IFs will follow on from them as such, they are set apart.

    If (a big one :trollface: ) Zlatan gets an IF it will be 91 rated aswell, but with better stats. So these gimmicky cards do nothing in pushing a player to the 100 mark.
