Just shooting the breeze and after reading threads on Belgium and lootboxes etc, someone mentioned that they had insider knowledge of potentially EA getting around lootboxes buy allowing people to buy coins and then packs or even players.
This got me thinking in that would I actually spend lets just say £100 on CR7 or £150 on Prime Gullit. The answer is yes, without a doubt.
Since Fifa 14, I've spent more money than I should on this game, however as I work hard and it's doesn't effect the bills, it's my treat to myself.
Every year I spend less and less on FP as the packs are ridiculous compared to previous years, however I also think it's because EA shifted the goal posts cleverly by increase ratings of players and SBCs so players that would normally cost 20k at this time are still 100k.
That said, I would have no problem at all in buying my players.
This would be the ultimate pay 2 win in someone ways, but isn't spending money on packs pay 2 win anyway? Even if you don't get great players, you're still getting cash towards getting them?
I know those that won't agree and I understand too why some would not agree, however great players do not make you a great player ( I know, ony qualified for WL twice in 2 years), however I have had fun playing due to getting Maradonna (95) which was my goal this year and to me it's about having fun. Listening to a lot of people, WL isn't fun but a grind so what is it you're grinding for? Better players isn't it? Take the unfun grind out and let people get what they want and enjoy. If your good at FIFA it wont effect you and this game really should cater to the masses not the small % of good/great players (yep I'm jealous and should git good?
Spending £200 on FP at the start of the game with 3 days head start, go my trading foot in the door, but even that I'm not good at.
TLDR. Would you buy players and how much would you spend real cash on them? What price ranges would be a general okay for all? Some have mentioned £25 max for an Icon. Would EA make more money if people could buy who they want?
Cheers and sorry for the long post.
