    If this sbc is 1.5-2mil, high rated fodders gonna die. Key to fodders rise is great cheap sbc that everyone gonna do.

    Now ask yourself, how many players gonna do this sbc right away. I guess not a lot.

    And next question: how many casual investors like you who invested in la liga fodders? A lot. So what happens when supply>demand? Exactly, fodders go down in price.

    If you really think EA told us they are releasing Messi sbc week before actual sbc just for communication reasons, you are wrong. They want people lose as much coins as possible.

    Can’t wait to see fodder investors undercutting each other. Thing is, it’s not like icon sbc that costs 500k. It’s 1.5 mil sbc at least. So prepare to take your loss.

    👍🏻👍🏻

    Spot on probably.
    Will be selling in the hype
    Thnx!

    Bit out of the loop, is it confirmed he is getting released? or are they just going to troll as usual and give it someone random

    Not heavily invested though, but will maybe go all-in for Futmas if prices tank.

    NIF Messi will be required - takes him off the market meaning not every other team has NIF or POTM Messi. Jumbo Rare Players pack

    4 or 5 85 rated squads - screws over investors buying high rated players 87+, and boosts the value of 83-86s in time for Futmas. Plus 8-10 IFs to reduce supply, again in time for a Futmas

    Also means the pack rewards can be Rare Mixed Players/Mega Packs to not flood the market of high value players

    Sell in the hype, EA have been working on this for a week

    EA’s curveball with this sbc:

    Requiring high rated cards that are first owner only...

    This gets you to buy fifa points and screws investors/traders big time.

    If this happens I blame u for giving ideas 😂

    they might very much ask for Messi, which makes scense

    They didn't do it in 19 for auba etc...
    The way they drop those sbcs won't be a Messi in...

    It will be high rated la Liga, high rated Argentina, high rated with totw, etc... They will calculate the price slightly below the totgs, I'd say around 1.8-2m

    They did require an aguero for his potm though. Probably more common of a card though.

    I'd love those requirements as I'd have everything basically covered in my club :joy:

    Holding onto my NIF Messi until 6pm Thursday, can't risk selling him now and then him being required in the SBC. As his price will spike instantly and I wouldn't be able to afford getting him back.

    All of a sudden the 40 IF Otamendi's I grabbed the other day at at 23k each are looking good. Upto 28k now.

    Not sure whether to sell in the hype or hold off as I feel this could be a big money maker if they ask for a high rated Argentina squad with one or more IFs.

    Edit: Just sold up as I'm happy with 200k profit for minimal effort. If hes required then so be it I still made coins for a game I dont even play 😂

    have a feeling that EA would require Messi due to not wanting everyone/ a lot of people to own a buffed Messi this early. They might throw a curveball but I can almost guarantee that EA will not make this SBC cheap/ easy to complete.

    like everyone has a spare 2 mil to spend on an untradeable card lol

    If he’s required then every one put into sbc is guess what replaced with another messi so still the exact same amount around

    Exactly, so there’s not a net increase in Messi’s, instead what you have is an increase in untradeables and less tradeable NIF on the market.
    Either way it’s pretty reachable for most players at this stage who haven’t dumped their coin into a full SBC team

    They could also include a bunch of objectives too, right? They put some silver Barca player behind a bunch of annoying objectives and then have a squad requiring a Barca special card with a rating of 65.

    What if you don't submit a Messi, but you have to score 50 goals with Messi in DR and then do a bunch of other stuff nobody wants to do? That would limit who could get the card.

    Objectives wouldn’t limit people as much as cost would.

    Besides, they’ve said it’s an SBC.

    You would still have expensive SBCs, but the SBC would also have an objective part. They did that last year for like that Tah card.

    I can't wait for the curve ball EA will throw. I can almost bet my whole squad a high rated/expensive player will be required. NIF Messi or silly high value Icon.

    EA won't give away 96 Messi for just a couple of IFs and 87+ rated squads

    NIF Messi is highly unlikely to be required for this and Icons 100% wont be required. It's already been confirmed that Icons wont be required for any SBCs this year.

    They can still make the SBC 2m without any of these requirements. Its hardly giving the card away 😂

    Might be a little unlikely, but there could be an SBC requiring a full UCL Argentinian squad.

    Why should they require ucl cards? It's a league special card and not a ucl special card
