    I can’t help but feel some of you guys will never be happy with the content. Ever.

    Don’t get me wrong I’ve moaned in the past when content has been poor and even none existent at times, but I can’t moan when they are trying new ideas, and trying to tick the boxes we have requested.

    It's not that I'm mad at the content its that I'm mad at the gameplay and how if everyone keeps sucking off EA whenever they do new promos etc like these, nothing will ever change in terms of gameplay/server issues. EA sees these reactions every time and they know "Oh we can release some new cards/gimmicks and we can keep putting out a **** game and not improve our servers"

    I do hear where you're coming from, but if EA decided to say "screw it people, we're taking the next 3 months to fix servers and not release another SBC", then there would be just as much outrage as that.

    I can't stand the game play at times and I play a lot. Even with wins there's generally a struggle or BS goals for me, that it's not entirely enjoyable.

    But, don't classify me as licking EA's backside if I decide to get excited about something different they choose to release. It is the attempt at trying that I'm giving the :+1: to. It is a good thing.

    Now, the other side of this is that EA continue to shoot themselves in the foot with the lack of communication in respect to all those things, we pretty much all hate.

    So these "Future Stars" Are gonna be better than most icons and a step below TOTY? FUT is turning into MUT, Pretty soon they'll release a full 99 rated team :'(

    Nobody is interested in Informs anymore, not to mention simple gold cards. Nobody is interested in an 87rated card anymore because it is fairly easy to get 95rated ones. To make more players be played by the community they need to bring them up to 90 rating.

    The community demands for this.

    But EA have created that demand by handing out ridiculous special cards willy nilly. There’s nothing ‘special’ about them now. It’s no wonder NIF’s are so unwanted when you could build a full special team for a few hundred K 2 months into the game.

    +1

    i think the majority doesn't have a squad full of 90+ players.. but most want those 90+ players.

    big names matter, but any player who is at par in stats will be used.. ppl want those.

    How would cups help this? Other than you have another WL mode where you only face the same team over again because if you truly restrict (not like 80rated with 6 bronze benchers and stuff like that people abused in earlier FIFAs) the teams it will be a dead mode.

    Actually it was a thing people said EA never does: Listen to the community. People want 90rated cards to be able to compete but can't afford them because the few we once had cost millions. So now there is a big rating infation over the last 2 years to create more high-rated players with some of them being "cheap". Sounds totally like fullfilling communities wish to me. I see people on this forum who played 2 or 3 85 IFs before and now stacked teams.

    I don't really want a young, unproven player outshining established players.

    Second on that. So unrealistic to me.

    The promo being unrealistic is your problem :D

    I'm honestly surprised at how many people don't like the concept of there being more unique and diverse cards that look to be useable. Maybe it's because I've played MUT way longer than FUT, so I'm used to concepts like this, but at least if they do things like this, it can stop the game from slowly dying until TOTS when people simply don't care anymore. Unless you just got FIFA for Christmas, and/or are still struggling to build a team, any card that comes out that isn't better than a player in your team (which for a lot of us would have to be pretty high rated since TOTY was a banger) the card is useless. I'd take something like this than looking at some random 81 IFs that no one cares about because they aren't useable.

    Surely you don’t actually think that was them listening to the community. They realised that people were only spending money during the start of the year and their two big promotions (TOTY & TOTS), and have been coming up with more big promotions and excuses to pump out high rated cards ever since. We’re now at the stage where players get 90 rated cards just for being young. If they hadn’t saturated the market so much with random 90 rated players, then NIF’s and IF’s would still be interesting and desirable.

    When I started the FUT journey many years ago, I was after a football simulation. Wanted this game to be as lifelike as possible.

    Fast forward 8 years later, whilst the game looks phenomenal, at times I know that there is no way possible for it to be a proper football sim. To start with, 6 (or 8) min of game play vs 90. Imagine attempting to play a full 90 minutes of this?!?! People would be bored stiff!

    So, I had to accept that it is still an arcade game, and adjust accordingly. I love football and therefore I should try (as best possible) to enjoy it.

    For anybody saying it's unrealistic, then seriously, re-look at what you're playing!

    I think alot of people are forgetting ultimate team is not all of FIFA 19 if you want realistic squads play head to head. They messed up the informs this year making them pointless giving +1 rating at a time on the high end players.

    If, as suggested, you have to complete objectives to upgrade the players this is great. If it's limited to doing weekly objectives and not being able to reach full potential till August then it's not.

    They might do the upgrades globally.

    Remember a few years ago there was different packs given away per amount of games everyone played? Maybe these cards will get upgraded once Foden has 10000 assists by everyone

    Then all you have to do is purchase/pack card and wait. I don’t think it’s gonna happen.

    If I want to play 100 games in a week to upgrade my card, the onus should be on me to do so and gain the benefit.

    So, no thanks - wouldn't want the socialistic approach to this. Forget that notion please.

    Ultimate team will always be about making money, it’s their golden ticket.

    The best we can hope for is we get stuff we want/like along the way.

    It’s not a case of what’s better, it’s what is currently feasible.

    This is a pre cursor to a FIFA mobile style upgrade system in the future.

    One that includes the option to pay for a faster upgrade

    Great debates about facing the same squad better to have more choice in meta players.
