Why do these even exist? UT was better without them.

    It let's you try a top player before shelling out coins on them.

    I don't see what's so bad? You get to try a player for a couple of games:

    If you like him buy his card
    If you don't like him you save yourself some coins

    Exactly, I don't get the hate. Give it 2 weeks and they won't be used by most

    I'm assuming he just got beat by someone with like Messi, Neymar and Suarez up front all loaned in :joy:

    NGL that would annoy me too.

    I'm gonna use all my loan players to begin with with coin boosts before I even touch my starter teams
  • They should make you play a certain amount of games on top of the level requirement to redeem loan players IMO.

    Why?
    Surely if I've played since 10 like I have then I deserve to use them due to my club level

    There really is no point to them. I can't keep them, so why do I want to get used to how great they are.

    Because if I'd have known how poor Bale was last year before buying him I wouldn't have bothered...

    Because since 15 the start of every UT puts you up against players with full loan squads because of how easy it is to get them. This becomes incredibly repetitive, whereas previous FIFA you always wanted to see what sort of budget squad people put together.

    I don't see the point in getting 75-81 rated loan players. I am fine with high end players because that was the idea.

    Then why don't you use them? It's not as though they have the opportunity and you don't...

    Great to save contracts with, other than that they do seem pretty pointless. I doubt many are struggling to get <81 rated players. I'd be happy loan packing Fernandinho at the start though, 12k/9k seems too much.

    They should be limited to 1 per squad. Other than that, they're fine.

    I agree with this. Playing a full loan squad with amazing players isn't particularly fun. I do see their use though...

    Not to mention you can use them in the Squad Building Challenge...

    You can? I got a message saying you can't.


    Loan players would be great if they had neutral chem (which would make sense with the idea of a "loan" player), but I can't build a team around players I only have for 7 matches or less.

    I hate them too, dunno why, I finished FUT 16 with Messi still with about 10 games.

    Dunno what it is, I just can't bring myself to use them. Also hate the fact they take up the first 2 pages of your club.

    I have no problem with them but I think that's fair to limit them to 1 per squad.

    There is no point to them. Should be limited to limited to one loan player per squad and the loan players should have max contract of 3.

    You missed the point of his complaint.

    Loan players kill that early stage in the game where you get to see oddball nonrare players people wouldnt ordinary use. He enjoyed that.

    Now you just see blue border Martial. And by the time all the loans run out (I have two pages of them) people have enough coins to buy higher end players. It changes the whole early game.

    Arguably. I don't really mind myself.

    I got to use HBA before buying him, and with that, I held off. Couple other cheaper options will hold me over just fine.
  • Loan players are great

    You get to use players for 10-15 games saving you coins.
