Anyone think the marquee matchup system needs a revamp?

The sbcs mostly feel so unrewarding now for me, bad packs, often requirements that don't reflect the fixture and fixtures themselves that are of little standing to deserve a 'marquee' title

I suggest there be 2 sets of matchup sbcs, one like the current week with random games from the week that aren't massively 'marquee' with easier requirements but worse packs, and a second set that are marquee games that are easier to invest for and have stricter requirements but better packs to reflect that. Thoughts?

    The thing is easier to invest for is not in EA dictionary. So no chance of it happening

    You got unlucky (me too, for many weeks), but no, not a reason to change the system.
    Of course we can complain about the way they choose games, but we also can't expect them to give us every week 4 games really easy to predict.

    It should be renamed ‘random matchups’ as they are certainly not ‘marquee’.

    Ever since they made up new packs for the rewards it’s not been worthwhile at all. I’m sure there were Mega packs and such for completing MM’s last season.

    My most profitable trading came from investing correctly in MM’s when I was still heavily interested in the game. But like you say, they just pick random fixtures now!

    While you are moaning about randomness and bad packs, take into consideration that two of these MMs can be done with full bronze teams.

    And while Atletico and OM/Leipzig players are slightly expensive atm, here's my free tip for future:

    I keep 2-3 players from every big league teams in my club as all of them have some discards. When something like this happens, Germain, Chambers, Elneny, Partey etc. come quite handy.

    Though, in general I agree the matchups have become not so "marquee".

    They should consider changing the title of these matchups. :)

    Meh Matchups

    or just Meh-chups.

    Anyway I'd prefer MMs that are a little harder or more expensive to complete but give better rewards. Even though you can get 7.5k and 15k packs pretty much for free, you're never going to pack anything of note from those low-tier packs anyway so it's pretty much a redundant exercise.

    I'd rather have to spend a little bit and get a bunch of 35k - 50k packs, like last year.

    Agree with this.

    Have to agree.... these new watered down 'half' packs are a p!ss take for sure. Small primes, small rares etc. utterly farcical really.
