Just confirmed by Zaro. They don't have the rights.
Why it took so long to confirm though is a mystery, they should have known all year they don't have the rights

    Not a mystery at all - they knew full well people would invest heavily in this, lose a ton of coins, and thus be encouraged to spend on FP chasing those losses.

    That’s all it comes down to.

    Maybe ea was trying to get the rights and both parties couldn't agree to terms... who knows what kind of licensing nightmares go on behind the scenes... it's why there are some missing icons in this game - zinedane, Beckham, etc.

    It can't be about having the rights. EA can make what card they want as long as they just don't use a picture from the ceremony. If it wasn't like that, how are they able to do all the other sbc players, like how did they have the rights for a flashback Rabiot who plays at the same team?

    I picked him up because I needed his card to be a RW, thought his eventual SBC/TOTS would be a ST

    I'd assume it's more to do with

    1. The level of preparation the community made for it.
    2. They couldn't make it as cheap as last year
    3. It would have distracted from PL TOTS pack buying

    If you prepared/invested in an Mbappe SBC, you should of still won!

    The epl SBC cleared me out. 1.5mil profit in 1 day for no effort.

    Same. I just thought the POTY might bring the TOTY price down, as people would sell it in order to buy the striker version

    Tempted to just take the hit and buy the inflated TOTY.

    Would mean paying 500k more than I was planning to, but not sure I want to wait a couple of weeks in hope he drops

    He’ll drop, that’s a certainty.

    But like you say, game is nearly over so might as well take what you can get and forget about your coin balance.

    Been trading all year and just prior to TOTS I bought all of my players and now justbliving of coins from DR / WL

    Could have bought him at 2.8 other week, expe ting the poty I didn't. I'll just make a start on r9 instead. Been putting off the grind for a while but need to use my untradeables somewhere.
