The last three promos have seen lightning rounds fall to sell out. The market is on its knees.

You’d currently need to get FIVE (+) 87 rated cards to break even. How is this even viable? No value in cards = no packs opened. It’s that simple. Desirable SBCs at fair prices = more packs opened to get coins. Neymar was priced at the same price as the tradable version.

People want an icon SBC, put value back in the market, stop the greed and give people something to grind in the menus,

    Mid icon is overdue for quite some time now. Tbh they should actually drop prime sbc rather now. Still desperately hoping for those PIM icon SBCs but we all know how this will end.

    Wouldn't surprise me if they didn't drop anything at all regarding icons, only way you can pack them is buying fifa points, it seems like that's their new thing

    At this stage the mid icon sbc is pointless. They should just drop a prime or PIM sbc, that would get the market going.

    The market's dead. The game's dead. Such a mess their insatiable greed has made of FIFA 20. It's like EA have decided to eat themselves to death.

    Mid icon SBC is pretty much all I’m waiting for at the moment. Pop the app on every day around 6pm and see it’s not there then turn it off again. I have 1.2m coins plus a few untradable ready to pump into it, I don’t want stupid stuff like shapeshifters Olaza, I just want the icon SBC, everyday it doesn’t come out is another day I’m not finding anything worthwhile to use my coins on.

    Apart from the obvious mid icons that are expensive, you could probably buy 2 or 3 decent ones with those coins. Rolling the dice on that SBC will surely just be filled with regret.

    Really? EA eat themselves to death? Even if LRs don't sell out EA earn by sheer quantity by having it every week. Even if market and game dead, EA still earn the bucks every week. Only when FIFA 21 comes round and no one is buying the game then it will hurt them big time. If not it will be the same complaints year on year in forum only

    With prices as low as they are, only a fool wouldn't use the unassigned glitch... are you a fool?

    My analogy, in all its clumsiness, was portraying how their greed has killed their game.

    Take your 1.2 into high rateds. Lacazette will cover mid icon and possible pogba sbc’s

    Let's be honest, this is inviting people to do so. Packs are useless, might aswell hoard cards right?

    It's starting to look really irrelevant now with primes dropping in price. Mid icon sbc might not even raise.prices by much. If they drop a prime sbc it would be a madness though and a good move for both EA and the players.

    Which is why we'll get a mid icon sbc that barely moves the market I guess. I wonder whats going to happen with the Conmebol DLC coming start of March. Is it going to finish off a dying market like with the WC addon in Fifa 18?

    Maybe but at least it adds something to grind towards and dump untradables in.

    No offence, but of course a mid icon boosts the market.

    This does tick me off. Last year it was our fault for some reason the PIM SBC's were too expensive to release. Before that we got told the market was a living organism, while EA time and time again influences the market by either putting cards onto it, or withholding content for no apparent reason.

    There is a ridiculous amount of people loaded with fodder at this point.

    Of course I hope everyone makes good coins, because it's the only way to improve your team.

    They wont release it because they know everyones ready for it now after the baby SBC . If no one said anything it wouldve been released weeks ago .
    Same reason we haven't had an good sbc worth around 400k or another player tab SBC or new league SBC. Well we all know who to thank . For crippling the market .

    If you look at one of the trailers promoting fifa 20 .
    It clearly says " play the transfer market "
    And then they get unset for for playing it , so they crippling it .

    You mean EA is to thank for crippling the market? They pull the trigger on whether to release SBCs or not. We've had the Players tab. EA Released 2 players within a 10-day timespan and did zilch afterwards.

    No offence taken mhoney. My point was it won't be the boom that the baby sbc brought about as I don't think people will be as interested.

    I think you underestimate a large portion of the community. People still grind hours on end for a baby Ronaldinho or an Essien that's around 1.2 milion on the market.
