Gold Upgrade SBC - A Tale of Woe

So yesterday, bored senseless in the middle of a 200+ mile train journey to a meeting that could so easily have been done via video conferencing, figure what better way to spend my time than working through a load of 81+ Gold Upgrade packs. We're all animals for those around here, some more than others, but figure why the hell not - got a load of players at my club - also have three KDB's stockpiled in preperation for POTM so decide to sell one of those at 35k profit, lessening the risk just incase he isn't needed come Friday and as such funding a bit of entertainment. You never know, these packs might just pay off... right?

As I always do when on a bit of an upgrade binge, I send all players at my club that I want to keep to my transfer list, keeping them out of harms way. Worked through about 25 packs in total, pulling Hamisk and Ribery in one, Pique, Morata, 4 different informs (Parejo the best of them, Mbappe he is not :joy:).... no amazing players as such but plenty of future SBC fodder.

Upon returning home the wife turns around and informs me she's off to some German Conditioning class at her gym tonight, will be back in an hour. 'Fantastic,' I think to myself, ,can smash through the remaining 10-15 packs worth of players I have.'

What a mistake that turned out to be.

Completely forgetting that I had earlier resent all my useable NIF players back to my club to make room on my transfer pile, began using the squad builder to motor through as many as possible, safe in the knowledge that my untradeable Prime Icons will start appearing on my bench as I eventually ran out of players.

Excited about opening the next 15 packs I decide do a little maintenance, listing anyone left over to recoup a few coins etc... it was at this moment my fateful mistake came to light.

1 De Bruyne, Alex Sandro, Varane and Sokratis and countless other lesser yet useable cards are no where to be seen :joy:

Start to frantically search through my club in every method possible but can't find them. Check, re check and then check again my transfer pile. Nope, definitely not there. Maybe it's some sort of glitch? Log out of FUT and back in again... nope, still no where.

FFS!!!

Only gone and used them in the SBC's haven't I? As is the way when using that blasted squad builder, was a little on autopilot and generally only notice things when 'special items' start appearing on screen. In my thick skull there were no NIF's left at my club I'd mind losing, they were all tucked up safely on my transfer pile.

So to cut a long story short started off yesterday with 3 KDB's, about 250k in coins and 3 full squads of players more than good enough to compete with... woken up this morning with 1 KDB left on my watchlist (thank God for small favours), 9000 coins, missing around about 580k's worth of higher end NIF's and am stuck with about half a team which I am now going to have to plug gaps in with the ******** ***** untradeables I pulled from those ******** ******* upgrade packs!

I can see it now... come midday Friday KDB will be needed for POTM (it just has to happen now :joy:) meaning instead of throwing away two of them worth 500k yesterday they would have no doubt been worth 1m! I can't afford to replace Sandro and Varane who're mainstays in my sides (Varane had 250+ appearances on him), my Blanc and Prime Zanetti plans for the future have been entirely obliterated.

I think I'm done :joy:

    My only saving grace right now is the fact that I have one KDB left in my transfer targets list. Problem is that even if he is needed for POTM the amount I gain from that is only just about enough to cover the cost of the the other NIF's like Sandro etc that I lost :joy:

    Got a few full leagues bought up on the cheap which will help in future but no idea when they will drop. As things stand literally have 9k in coins and pile of untradeables (most of which are useless) to work with. Haha.

    That bloody companion app... has had me over so many times through the years. Last year it spazzed out on me and ended up buying some Stevenage Borough bronze for 10k that I wanted to bid 150 for :joy:

    Can always tell when it's bitten other people in the backside as well - those moments you have a player randomly sell at max bin. As great as it is, you just know someone somewhere is suffering. Haha.

    Genuinely, that's rough. I would be absolutely gutted.

    Have you tried contacting EA about this? Normally I would say don't bother, but I read a thread on here a few weeks back from a guy who just completely misunderstood SBCs and traded a very valuable team for a bronze pack thinking, he wouldn't lose the players, despite all the warnings that he clicked through.

    Anyway, he contacted EA Chat and the last I remember from the thread was that EA weren't laughing hysterically and he was waiting to see if the players he accidentally traded could be returned to him as untradeable.

    In my mind, it's worth a shot. I know you will lose the transfer value of the players, but at least you could still use Varane, Sandro etc, if EA are being nice today.

    Yeah i remember that guy.. lad who put his Serie A team in to a beginner SBC right? Thought you just had to prove you could build the links.

    Worth a shot i suppose but don't really expect anything back.. was just a lapse in concentration, stupidity more than anything. Am well versed in these things so should know better tbh :joy:

    If anything i should be using this as a lesson.

    To stop being an idiot :smiley:

    i called ea, was compeltely honest and they gave me 100k back. i was very suprised. the ea advisor actually thanked me for not lying and making ul a reason, glitch, hacked etc

    But did she enjoy her german conditioning class.


    Feel your pain, its a long shot but contact support they can and have done for me a club rollback before.

    Ring the support number though you generally get someone based in the galway centre rather than an agency phillipino.

    Ffs. Horrible. Would donate some coins to you if EA wouldn’t ban me for coin transfering. My worst nightmare this when doing the gold upgrade.

    Haha. Cheers for all support guys.

    I honestly just can't be bothered with wasting time chasing up EA about it.. my own stupid mistake at the end of the day.

    That being said my desire to trade and play is at a minimum right now :joy:

    Just seems pointless grinding away for another month or so to get myself back to the very same point i was at yesterday. Lol.

    Even in two minds about if i want that one remaining KDB to be needed for POTM. On one hand it'll put me back to a semi decent coin total, on the other will make the fact he went in to an SBC which probably gave me Kagawa in exchange hurt so much more :joy:

    What'd you reckon to getting rid of the stress, selling him and doing 25 more SBC's lads? :trollface: @Littleland95 @Thamightyboro @tilen11 @Jaymizzo @rgdaher14 @Futfanatic



  • Don't sell and do SBCs.

    Use players you get in WL rewards for SBCs.
