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
).... 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
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.
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
) 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
