    13 French players in one promo, why?

    The things I’d do to have that Robben again, loves him.

    Just rq a wl game at 2-2. 3rd game in a row that was against ball roll fc, connection was atrocious and my food was kind ready.
    Call me toxic but i was so tilted.
    Lost the game before 8-7 on pens.

    Can i just say, people keep going on about those future star "upgrade" objectives like they were anything different. They weren't. You just did way more objectives to unlock the same type of card that any other promo has for objectives. They really weren't anything different.

    When you look at it like that I guess you’re right.

    If they did it that way but we got a better card than the usual at the end because it took more work, a couple more packs along the way and some mid rated fodder, then it would be better.

    That process only needed a little tweaking but instead they gave up all together was my original point which I didn’t convey well.

    I wasn’t just aiming that at you btw, I’ve seen a lot of people mentioning this recently!

    Ultimately, they could and should do a lot better with objectives than what they currently do. Don’t even get me started on the milestone section. That section is genuinely a waste of code in the game.

    Not doing that Robben was one of my biggest regrets of last year.

    Reckon they’ll bring back Icon SBCs for 21? I don’t. Shame really, by far the best part of the game since their introduction.

    They won’t. EA will never admit it was a mistake.

    In the end, it probably worked out just how they wanted it to work out. Top tier icons are out of reach for most people unless you spend FP. If you actually believed they did it out of the goodness and generosity of their hearts, you might have to think twice.

    From their point of view, it’s a great new addition.

    This is it, this economist bloke has changed it all so everything is geared towards you buying packs now, lowering the value of SBC packs, SBCs themselves and untradeable packs are all designed to maneuver you into buying with money what you want.

    We need a big boy sbc, 1m plus... enough of these 100-250k sbc's.

    Got so much sbc fodder, I literally completed Ozil because he's an Arsenal player even though I'll barely use him if at all 😂

    I mean how awesome would it be if they gave us a 5*5* Son or someone similar with no expiry even if it was 1.5/2m

    Werner 5*5*. Tyvm

    No clue who’s behind this amazing idea. Fact is that content has been the worst it’s ever been, and I’ve never been less tempted to spend money on this game. Last year, I’d have bought a couple of FP throughout the year to test my luck. This year, I regret every single penny I spent on the game.

    Something else that they’ve done over recent times that seems to of gone unnoticed is made MM pretty much all golds when they used to always have 1 or 2 squads that could be done with bronzes and silvers.

    Yeah I feel the same, no-one wants to be milked as a customer, but that's what it feels like they're doing. They definitely don't listen, so it's all pointless but it's just ❤️❤️❤️❤️.

    For this period last year compared to the year before that their revenue went down and their income tanked. Year on year it's slightly down. It's not like they're doing better than before, they're bigger and going the wrong direction.

    Yup, so next year will be exactly the same. The player base grows every year, the effort they put in declines at the same rate.

    It didn't tho, did it? Physical game sales were down, everything else was up. Revenue on micro transactions up by 8% of 10% more new FUT players or so iirc.

    Just opened 4 100k packs with no walkouts, that's me finally done with all the packs I had saved, 573 packs I've opened this week and the most valuable card was Varane which was untradeable, most expensive tradeable was Kane

    FIFA Ultimate Team is propping up the rest of the games more and more, it's doubled in percentage of revenue stream in two years, from 16% to 28% of total. They're milking ultimate team because for now it's their real money maker.

    You don't fake numbers tho as that would get you in a lot of trouble. Numbers might be biased or they never published the negative aspects, but the ones they did publish should be accurate.

    Game sales just very slightly up, but new FUT players and micro transaction revenue up by quite a bit and therefore they are loving life in regards to FUT.

    I guess the real failure this year was Volta which was probably an attempt to get game sales back up too. Can't imagine that it worked.

    Just hit 300 goals/200 assists in 435 games with my SPOTM Werner 😎 Not quite Gyan levels with his Josef, but I’ll still take it.

    Also this Córdoba objective is testing my last damn nerve. The amount of ridiculous saves I’ve seen the last 3-4 games is doing my head in 😂 only have one game done for each of the low driven and finesse 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    I don't really get what you're saying, I'm saying that these are numbers pulled from EA's financials. If you're saying they're not telling the truth with them that's illegal, EA is publicly traded so releases financials to it's investors.

    FIFA Ultimate Team is propping up the rest of the company, because EA is growing larger and not really making more money total as game sales of other games drops. They're milking FIFA Ultimate Team because it's their hot property. My point is when it's not a hot property, because they've milked it too hard without seeing any tangible improvement, it'll ruin the game.
