WAIT...so if they downgrade current cards in your club and market...surely they would do the same for upgraded cards to right?

They make money on releasing new cards on the market which is part of the upgrades gimmic.

I cant see them changing rating on some cards but just releasing others on the market.

Thoughts?

    Cont...


    The whole point of EA doing this is to make money and there is NO money to made on zero new cards hitting the market.

    They will release upgraded new cards I believe.

    But so many are saying that wont released NEW downgraded cards...

    I assume nifs won't get upgraded or downgraded in your club. It will only be infroms and otw and new nifs in packs.

    If cards in my club go down i'll be calling Ea to get my coins back as what I bought was not what I got.

    That's how I would think it would happen, but they like to be unpredictable to get the jump on traders

    @Kloral

    That would be pretty crappy.

    Especially since their coin value is destroyed. I didnt think about that part. Would be a pretty bad situation for EA.

    Downgrades will be newly released cards but will change card type. E.g 78>74 etc. That's my guess anyway. No point downgrading cards otherwise

    Coach is right. It makes no sense for them to change existing cards.

    But then surely no one will buy them? Why would anyone buy a downgraded player if there are better versions of him e.g. No ones going to buy a 74 rated Musa if there are 78 Rated versions on the market.

    Metephorically speaking, introducing downgraded cards when there are better NIF versions of them on the market will be like 'trying to sell Silver to people who already have Gold'.

    So it will make 85 Smalling more profitable if an 83 Smalling is released soon/

    a 74 rated Musa would be extremely coveted by silver users actually :D

    yeah but what EA will do with this is remove people's gold so they will be forced to buy silver instead

    Bingo.

    Quite a few worthless golds going to silvers, and silvers to bronzes. They won't touch any even remotely common player.

    the higher rated cards just get taken out of packs, and if that player is in demand their price will rise a bit in comparison to the new lower rated card.

    people on a budget would be buying the lower rated card.

    Reading all my tweets from guys that have predicted things pretty well this year that ALL are saying that...

    EA WILL just change the cards in your club.

    I was surprised to see Hjerpseth say that there will be downgrades.
