what are we forecasting for the big boys?
I just added up the value of the untradeable+tradeable cards I have, 84-91 rated NIFs, 84-89 rated IFs, Nakata as my only icon fodder. So, based on the market cost of the cheapest examples of all those cards, cheapest icon at 350k etc it added up to 2.575mil, which given the prices of the lesser icon moments SBCs doesn't sound like a lot, my club is absolutely stacked though.(I'm aware that the market is in a lull atm and should it pick up that 2.575mil is then more like 3mil+).

So, what are we thinking the likes of Eusebio, Matthaus, Gullit, Dinho, Cruyff etc are gonna cost to complete? I've read on here that EA are trying to make the SBC a similar price to that of the cards market value...but if thats the case 99.9% are screwed, lmao :D , unless they increase the pack weight of some of these cards.

It's crystal ball time fellers, wanna hear your guestimates ;)

    its someone with nearly 15,000 posts on a fifa forum complaining when I dare to attempt to start a conversation :D Perhaps I should've posted it in the other thread, I pop in here once in a blue moon and didn't see it there, no need to act like an autist about it is there?

    This thread went well.
    ah mate, here we go lets pile on for the lolz.

    If he had started it in September, he'd have had one of the most popular threads in the forum 😂

    I personally think these sbcs gonna be cheaper than expected.

    FUT Birthday gonna give us a good indication as we will get some big Icons. No way an untradable card will cost 5 mill plus.

    Edit: I tried staying on topic, maybe I misunderstood seeing all the other posts.

    Yeah I was assuming they'd ask for multiple Icons, that shouldn't be a problem with how cheap the baby versions are atm. They could go for x2 88/89/90 I suppose yeah, can't see it being more than 15 IFs tho, thats getting a bit ridiculous, have they ever asked for that in previous fifas?

    Hope you're right, it does seem crazy to chuck over 4mil+ into an untradeable card. As each promo passes these high tier primes should in theory be packed more and thus drop in price, maybe the hype around them will die down a little, hard to predict really though

    Yeah. It’s hard to predict.

    But it’s not good for EA bringing out 5 mill plus sbcs. A very small percentage of the community would be able to do them. I understand that these cards should be difficult to attain, but the cost of sbcs for untradable cards has limits.

    I personally want to do R97, Vieira and Gullit- but if they come in May I will pass.

    exactly, thats the other issue as well. Many of us on here have clubs stocked full of untradeables burning a hole in our pockets, I'd rather overpay for these high tier PIMs now and have them for a while than be made to wait weeks or months to get them 'on the cheap' when TOTS are already out

    hmm tough to say, from scratch I'd guess 1.7-1.8mil ml, he's only 2.2mil on the market so can't see it being that much.

    oof, hope you're on the money. You expecting multiple icons or x2 89 or 90 squads instead?
