Yes I would. I like to use only active players and think this is a game so I don't quite get why should I be forced to use players who are not active anymore. If it was up to me, there would be no Icons in this game.
You can literally go play with a full icon team in basically any other game mode other than Ultimate team. When you bought FIFA 20, you didn't buy Ultimate team 20, you bought FIFA 20. UT is just one game mode.
It's naive to think it wouldn't cause any problems. It's basic economics of which laws apply in a market such a in FUT. Also top content is available for everyone. In FUT for those who are willing to grind for them and in other modes for anyone who decides to start the game.
Which will lead to inflation of prices and/or cards being extinct. My bottom line is, that in a game that runs similarly to FUT which has a strong trading element built into it, it's not possible to achieve a situation where everyone would have access to best cards with the game being rewarding at the same time.
Okay so this would lower the absolute price of the high end players that's true. The causal effect would be every card lowering in price, which would cause the exact same situation as now in terms of accessibility, only with lower numbers in the coin-column.
Now I agree with you in this specific example. How it differentiates from FIFA is that those players ARE available in the game. They just aren't available in one specific game mode, which is Ultimate Team.
I just think it as a trade for the fact that there is something to achieve in these games, even if that something is just a small upgrade to your team. The other extreme of would be to give everyone one of every card that exists and I'm pretty sure no one would want that. A middle ground where everyone would be happy just…
Could you explain please? What would be the right attitude here then may I ask? Also while it may not have any value that could be measured, it does have a value of entertainment, which is not measurable.
