    That guy must be trolling

    I actually think it's pretty fun, at least makes you create some hybrids you never thought of before. I pulled Neymar and Salah untradeable, wouldve sold them otherwise to invest or whatever, now HAVE to make a team that includes them, and I kinda like that tbf

    Tbh it's an absolute joke SBCs were fun and a bit of a gamble in the past, untradable sucks the fun of a potential decent payday.

    I am cool with it, lot of content and already got a solid untradeable team if I want. Valverde, Alisson, Vardy, Kane, Hazard, Semedo, Gomez (CB / Liverpool). I can't complain :)

    I would never play Neymar, because I hate this guy, but I would gladly take the coins and buy whoever I really want. Untradeable SBC rewards are not fun

    For me the fun is completely gone now.

    Sbc's were the only fun part of game but now they've even taken that away from us with terrible untradeable packs and what it seems like lower pack weight.

    I think with needing so many different squads it's not such a bad thing, forced to keep players but they will come on handy down the line!

    Honestly, I don’t mind untradeable rewards. What I don’t like is how low value rewards are even though they are untradeable.

    they need to increase the rewards from SBCs if they are going to be untradeable. I don’t mind not being able to sell any good pulls, but the rewards for SBCs are so stingy

    They're off their rocker if they think all these untradeables are okay.

    Poor packs back match well with poor SBCs. The only thought out in to them is on how to short change us.

    Untradable rewards, low pack weights and nowhere to store you're duplicates.

    There's a problem with this though in as much as if you keep pulling high rated dupes and there is no sbc that you want to put them in, you'll end up discarding them. The quick sell recovery tool isn't designed in a fair enough way to deal with this.

    They might simply not duplicate the players who are already on the team if the package is not for sale. There are a lot of duplicates.

    I think it depends on what you have out of the untradables. For me I’ve had Alison, Wan Bissaka, Walker, Martial, Jesus, Ben Yedder, OTW Van De Beek, Rashford and 85 Hernandez. I’ve had enough usable cards to think that untradables are OK. I even had enough fodder to do the Talisca SBC for the cost of Sule.

    If you’ve had nothing, you enjoy trading or are chasing a mega team to compete in WL then the untradables are useless.

    Another thing that is making me lean towards liking them is I’m not chasing a mega team this year. I’m not pushing to try and get Elite in WL like in past editions, I’m stopping earlier when I’ve had enough. With all the nice cards from objectives, all the friendly modes and the silver lounge there are multiple ways of playing the game this year and enjoying it, you don’t have to solely focus on WL.

    I wouldn't mind them so much if we were able to do something useful with the duplicate pulls. I've lost track of how many times I've discarded Kepa recently.

    for me its a "wait and see"

    Hoarder / Card Collector...so.....so far have just had to be a bit more organised ....

    Pack luck is pretty hideous this year so no high rated dupes to speak of..

    ...I do however feel morally obliged to only put untradeables IN to SBCs now which has made the process more laborious
  • I think it's great...can't fault them.
    I'm fine with it.

    More untradables, better for the game, as you need to find ways to use UT players instead of just cash in.

    I got Mbappè NIF UT, KDB UT & Auba UT, of course I would have been happier to cash instantly on Mbappè and build a PL team as usual, but it's a bigger challenge to mix players and find chemistry.

    And "standard" gold players can be reused for SBCs, so they're not a waste (aswell as consumables are used for your club).

    But by your own admission... You would have cashed in, so you clearly aren't in favour of it.

    The thing is that tradable packs flood the market with cards which can cause pretty big price drops. If all rewards were tradable then the market would be on its knees (even more so then now) or they would have to give out rewards (sbc and objective packs) less often.

    So I think it’s a balance, obviously I prefer to get tradable cards but I also want to get a good amount of packs and for the content of those packs to have value.

    There needs to be more of a balance of the two. Untradeable are fine as long as there are decent SBCs they can be used within however to date in my opinion there’s not been a single decent SBC so clubs will all be full of fodder which gets players nowhere

    Doesn’t change anything as I’ve packed awful players anyway, so the value is the same

    Agree entirely.

    More balance would be achieved with a mixture of both. I'm not against them, but almost every single SBC is now untradeable.

    How long before marquee matchups becomes untradeable?

    They may as well go the whole hog and make all packs untradeable including those bought with FIFA points and remove the market... because they clearly don't want it there.

    Just another way that EA make it harder to make coins so people are more inclined to buy packs.
