Scream Card Theory

So having seen the promo video and some of the bizarre boosts the scream cards are receiving I've had a thought that these cards will remain boosted all year but the boosts will cycle round different stats owing to the the reference to "Shapeshifting".

My expectation is the cards will be released as per the promo image but each full moon the boosted stats will swap round which could be a gold mine for gambling investors.

At the moment Busquests boosts look really useful for the position with 90 pace and defending handy for a CDM but at the next full moon this could swap to shooting and physical being boosted which would be less desirable and less of an improvement over the normal card in respect of the physical meaning the price could drop.

Conversely the Ballotelli defending and dribbling 90 stats could become 90 pace and 90 shooting which would make his price jump up.

This is only a theory but I'd be quite interested in using these cards and taking the risk from time to time hoping the shapeshifting worked in my favour.

    Yeah that's how expect it to work . I think any player that gets 90 pace on a new cycle will go up in price

    Pretty sure they’ve just canned the big upgrades on a full moon to stop people using them for high rated SBCs.

    Absolutely, it made even the average cards high price and only really worth it for short periods. That said I loved the Boateng card when boosted but if I'm right I think there's money to be made trading them.

    Yeah the stats will move around hence the name shapeshifting, dunno if I'm a fan or not.

    Same, seems like you'll have a pointless card at some point regardless.

    Can’t imagine they let us have 90 Pace Busquets for months at a time

    Everyone is disappointed about the rating not going up but they were just as much as regular 87-90s last year. The only benefit would be to those who pack them but this year they will be actually useable if they implement the system everyone thinks they are. If these players keep stats like this for a month or so at a time, they will hold value. A 90 Pace Busquets will be useful for many months. Anytime he has the 90 Pace, he will instantly be one of the best CDMs in any FUT ever pretty much. Crazy passing, decent dribbling, good defense, and insane pace... it’s hilarious just thinking about the pace upgrade lol
