    I've learnt that the crash before the crash is normally the real one. I hope this means that prices rocket on Thursday when hes released as is way too expensive!

    If TOTGS Messi drops any lower I might just buy that instead of doing his POTM.

    I would also keep eye on Messis price range. If it is lowered then it should be pretty good predictor he is needed

    Lol hilarious that ppl think a 2+ mill coin card will go extinct like some 10k silver lol. Theres 100’s of thousands of messi’s out there bro. The community is not rich to the point of sniping messi at 2.5 mill haha

    hundreds of thousands of one of the best cards on the market....like everyone has him LOL

    I dont think announcing sbc one week before is a way of public relation. Ea is planning something else and all ınvestors are on the target.
  • Why will they ask for nif Messi when his card is out for almost a week?

    This Messi will be 'free' - maybe objectives or cheap squads BUT the catch will be that it will have an expiration date.

    Everyone can 'enjoy' Messi, This will screw traders/investors and make the 'sbc' cheap.

    I think everyone should just buy the TOTGS and have him tradable rather committing such a large amount of coins untradable don’t get it

    With the base icon sbc still available, requiring an icon may not be far-fetched after all.

    I have 2-3 I can get rid of. I like this requirement.

    EA, please require icons!

    I brought a couple of high Barca players that’s all lol they way ea have done this (telling us a week in advance) scares me they have never done this so why start now.
    Ok may be it’s to get people buying players before they go max bin 😂 but I doubt this or may be they thought it’s Christmas let’s play bah humbug!! As u know there’s going to be a massive curve ball awaiting us it wouldn’t surprise me if they did a 85,86.87,88 rated teams and then the la Liga objectives to earn the last part of the puzzle to get him as they won’t want every man and his dog running about with 96 rated Messi
    I brought a few players at ok prices but not investing as such as I think a lot of people won’t do this if the time frame is only a month

    I'm going to grind this SBC whatever the cost will be my only chance to get a first owner Messi . I'm tryna make my whole team first owner this season . Only problem is I only have around a million and couple of high rated sbc squads . Be good to grind for IMO

    One of the sbc's could be "redeem a team with over 2000 goals" Make them stats be useful.

    Tricky one to invest for. I paid 1.65 for my 95 messi which at the time was a good price and with the panic selling Iv decided to keep him, he’s amazing anyway, going to hurt when I see him selling for 1.2 mill though 🙈

    I won’t be getting him as I only use English players. But I suspect since that Benzema TOTGS SBC is so cheap that you will probably have to use a la liga TOTGS card/TOTGS Argentina card in Messi’s SBC. No way it’ll be as cheap as Benzema, EA have made several moves this year to stop the crash in the market after Scream/Black Friday and probably FUTMAS too. I expect it’ll be a way of clearing the market of all of the high rated cards that have been gotten in packs from people using fifa points to try and get a TOTGS player in the past week before they restart the whole process with FUTMAS.

    Impossible already said icons will not be required for SBC’s most likely would be a Messi required

    Don’t think I’ll do anyway prefer my coins tradable, the only boost your going to feel on a Messi is the tots / Toty boost

    I thought the base icon SBC was to sucker people in to buy more fifa points before the introduction of Prime Icons?

    EA has said a lot of things before fifa 20 was released and they have either failed to deliver or backtracked on their comments.

    They've reverted rewarding playing defense manually. All tackles now go back to the attacker. Composed finishing was supposed to be athing but now finishing is still inconsistent as ever. AI auto defending is still a thing.

    Nope thats next 🤣.. been joking for a while but this is ea at the end of the day an i'm betting if not messi at some point ea will drop an sbc that requires an icon.

    All ea have said so far that they wasn't goin to do they have done. Should just bring back icon sbcs an be done with it. Least i for one will be happy as i wanted gullit this year.

    Could be right, I have come to learn whatever happens with SBC’s and promos it is always a shrewd strategy by EA designed to relieve people of either their coins, their fifa points or their cash. Think i’ll be holding onto my coins until FUTMAS or TOTY (which I expect Messi will be in as well).

    Primes dropping straight after that, so there could be an even bigger crash from that
