Untradeables killed it for me

Besides the regular laggy/slow gameplay, the amount of untradeable packs in combination with the shocking lack of quality SBCs has seriously killed it for me. In previous editions I used to have fun doing League SBCs, Icon SBCs etc, slowly but steady gaining coins because the packs were good, to buy or try a top player like Cruyff or Best in an earlier stage.

This year is so nerved like that, it's been taken the fun away for me. Yes, I packed some good players and yes I did Icon SBCs, but that was all EA who decided who I should get. And almost all those top players you might pack or can get through an SBC are untreadable, so you have two options: play with them or put them in an SBC. Or in the worst case scenario, discard if it's a duplicate and the quick sell recovery is no longer available for you at that moment.

Isn't this OUR Ultimate Team? Aren't WE, the end users, the ones who should build their team to our liking?

I have no idea what to do now, my team is fully untradeable, have 30k coins, but every upgrade in my team would cost a minimum of 2M coins. I won't even get close to that....

    I mean they’ve taken your time up until June so they’ve done a good job. With no mention of quitting I’m guessing he they’ve done a great job on you.

    Nail on the head actually.

    FUT should be about fun progression yet all we get is EA doing everything to take as much as your club away as possible for over priced SBCs and untradeable pack SBCs where we have zero chance or getting anyone good.

    They have made doing guaranteed tots SBC packs useless as you know you will get nothing from them as well as TOTW SBCs that are just pointless. 11 82s? I’ll just buy a discard one thanks.

    As soon as people make progress or find a way to make coins EA step in and are like, nope, how dare you try to enjoy and progress without FPs. Please buy our casino chips you can use on gambling on packs that you have no chance of getting anything good with.

    The game in its current state is pointless, the only good things are the icon swap +83 packs etc, I’m sure they will be removed next year as they are too fun and rewarding.

    You can spend hours doing objective cards which is not a bad thing but they are so behind the progress line they are mostly just fodder.

    If you have the time and hours and hours to spare you can trade but I mean if I’m putting that much effort into something I’ll do it on something I actually make real money on.

    Untradeable pack rewards are a joke considering the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ pack weight and since when did we accept an SBC player who is more expensive than the tradeable market version was ‘a good deal’. EA are slowly manipulating people into thinking anything is a good deal and let not forget the kits you could buy in store for 65k coins.

    The end of progression will be the end of FUT for a lot of people.

    Yeah spot on. And people 100% get banned for trading legitimately in this game. Think about that - a situation where you buy a game, play within the rules, the company states you need to monitor the market to get the top players and then they ban you and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    That is because I love football and I love the Ultimate Team concept. But I don't like the concept in its current state. You should be able to progress in amount of coins steadily, so after a certain amount of time and effort in the game, the game should reward you. I'm not saying everyone should be able to buy Moments Ronaldo, Gullit and Cruyff in November, I'm saying they should be within reach for everyone in the game.

    The more time you spend on the game, by playing, trading, puzzling, whatever, the faster you should get those players. And maybe close the gap a little between the absolute top tier icons, TOTS/TOTY Ronaldo, Mbappé, Neymar and what's coming next.

    Protest with your feet and dollar then. Nothing changes otherwise.
