These WC SBCs are by far the worst SBCs ever released.how can someone have 11 of these nations and not already have the player anyway, normally I love a good rant at ea but these have made me laugh at how clueless they really are

    Could've done special cards for WC mode as there's no TOTW oh well excellent own goal by EA :D

    I'd love to see the counter on how many people's done it,to have 11 of those nations you would have to have 95% players on the game

    Yes most have the players and the requirements mean you'll most likely pack them before you get them if you don't :D

    I am really appreciating the new found communication between us and EA but they just haven’t listened this time around.

    Seems to me like they’ve gone down the easy route nobody really wanted just so they can say ‘we gave you SBCs’, rather than finding out what we actually wanted. i.e. Use for high rated dupes, better knockout round rewards, play a friend mode, extra squad slots etc. etc.

    All the focus is on FIFA 19 as that’s where the money will be made come September. For them is a question of why spend time(=money) producing content when it wont be making them anything in three months.

    EA have always had the balance between quality content and making profit skewed largely in the latters favour, never going to change unfortunately.

    THIS. It’s SO obvious every time they release something that they don’t actually play the game. Why can’t they ask some of their ‘game changers’ who literally play the game as a job! Isn’t that what they are there for...

    Well said, truly shocking SBCs. Why would they not run a TOTW, hardly takes that much effort boost 23 players stats and change their card.

    Saw someone mention on Twitter that if they're not going to do TOTW then why not just put several old TOTW cards back in packs, maybe ones competing in the WC.

    It's just lazy at this stage.

    I just wish there was some proper competition in football gaming but with EA owning the licenses for everything that's not gonna happen.

    I am pretty sure EA will do some types of special TOTW (selected players from all TOTW) eventually. This is just not the time as ppl can't buy fifa points (unless it is just me)

    well, you see. There are 29/30 Polish players

    Lewandowski is just One of them

    that means you could have 29 and still not have him

    From a business point of view you can’t fault them. Any football game without licensing just won’t be successful, EA don’t need to spend their money making a better game - just use their massive financial power to get all the licenses and effectively starve PES so they can’t compete.

    If I wanted to beat Usain Bolt in a race it be much easier to break his ankles then work hard enough to be faster than him...

    I think the frustration is not that these SBCs shouldn’t be in the game, by all means add more SBCs we don’t have to do them if we don’t want, it’s the issue that lots of us have loads of 85+ duplicates filling the dupe storage and no indication of whether we will ever need to use them!

    EA know that lots of us have these high end duplicates stacked up, that’s exactly why they did these DBC’s knowing most people would have flushed away Japan, Poland, Colombia and Senegal players in the upgrade SBCs- in the hope we would be foolish enough to buy packs to complete these utter rubbish SBC’s

    At least an upgraded version of the player would have made some sense. Like 87 Mane instead of the standard 84.

    Do you even understand how the cards work in wc mode? They are all live cards which means they will upgrade automatically during the course of the wc based on their performance....like otws in fut

    Yes I do.

    Did you even read the rest of the thread? It's about how it's ridiculous to swap 11 Senegal players to get Mane because many of us are likely to already own Mane way before we even accumulate 11 Senegal players. I have only 5 Senegal players, Mane is one of them. I have 10 Spanish players, Ramos was the 4th or 5th one I packed. I have only 8 Brazillian players, and I already have Neymar.

    So the only reason for the SBC to not come across as a totally lazy attempt by EA to give us meaningless "content" is to actually take some effort to think it through and make the SBC desirable, PLUS solve the ACTUAL problem that players have, which is a build-up of numerous high-rated duplicates.

    So if they gave us an 87-rated Mane, for example, it's perfectly fine if it's static. Midway through the tournament, the 84 Mane may overtake the 87, and that's fine. But at least the SBC now has a stronger, more meaningful raison d'etre.

    Not all of us have high rated duplicates problem.

    TBH @JamieT96 I seen it as the perfect time to re-release the PTG glory cards that 'made the cut' if you will.

    Who knows.... maybe we will see a chosen PTG promo Friday but it was wholly disappointing, and to be honest embarrassing for EA. Imagine tweeting out a no TOTW statement, offering up SBCs but knowing they will be trash :D

    Can i EA get any further away from their customer base? probably... but not much further.
