    I prefer it to a league sbc as you can pretty much choose who you want, Koke looks great but I’d really like modric

    They could just release the epl and la liga sbcs and have some of the team sbcs with swap player rewards

    I hope not.
    Will be a ❤️❤️❤️❤️ fest with players being overpriced and extinct.

    Its called flushing out the weak hands. Ea has been trying to get people to sell their laliga/epl cards for literally a month.

    Dunno if itll be this week or in another month but the long term impacts on not doing it would hurt EAs bottom line.

    Youd essentially have 90% of golds be discard starting in january for Fifa 19, which hurts the attractiveness of packs, which hurts sales.

    Then again EA has never exactly been good at understanding the unintended consequences of its actions

    You and I seem to have the same viewpoint a fair amount. Also, appreciate the way you word your responses. No disagreement here.


    The problem is that were talking the two biggest leagues. They build up anticipation for these SBCs only to shelf them because of what, investors/hoarders? If this is actually the case, they don't have a clue who their playerbase is.

    An extraordinary amount of people do the SBCs as they get "something" out of finishing them. Whether that is packs, players, feeling of accomplishment, coins, whatever. Just look back through the SBCs during FUT birthday. I know some weren't worth the cost/reward. It didn't stop people from completing them. Others just enjoy opening packs, and they get some from these challenges.

    I have played against a number of people who had SBC Thiago, Hamsik, Cavani, etc. They complete these challenges for a myriad of reasons. To each their own. For EA to decide that these people aren't allowed to continue getting the league SBC players due to investors, that is just wrong. The people posting about 'how usable would the player be anyway" aren't the demo for the league SBCs. Wouldn't you like to be a fan of the Pro League, and waited this long only to get shafted? Well don't worry Belgian fans, you will get some random pink cards to appease your anguish.

    Might as well not release Pele now. Too many people have hoarded ICONs for the SBC. We shouldn't allow them to capitalize so easily!

    Andy should look at this reply.
    This is perfect.

    This guy is spot on. The long term implications of pack openings by not releasing them will be felt next year.

    Fair play, this promo isn’t the worst, but not One of those players worth busting your arse off for.

    If they don’t release league SBCs tomorrow, it’s all over. Can’t see many people grinding in the following weeks for a player that’s potentially worthless in 3 weeks.

    I think they do understant the consequences and they counter it/will counter it with more sbc’s that give out untradables. Like they are doing with the upgrade sbc’s right now.

    It would be a really **** move by EA, everyone could finish a league SBC but not everyone can collect 11 out of 12 swap cards.

    It would be a really stupid move to not do them at all.

    If their concern is "too many people have prepared", then don't scrap the whole thing, just make it less attractive for people to do.

    Make the Liga player an 86 rated Rulli and the Premier League one an 87 rated Cahill. Give all the teams low requirements and low-cost packs as rewards.

    Who would bother doing them?
    not a good solution, that would pissed off community even more

    Agreed.

    Thanks for waiting for the EPL league SBC! Complete all the teams for an untradeable 82 rated Jack Cork!
