    Dembele's OTW - the guess is he'll be upgraded to an 80, so his special cards won't get upgraded. As for an IF this week, it's REALLY REALLY rare for EA to give 2 IF's in the same game. Piszeck was MoTM and is likely to get one. He might get one due to no BPL IFs this week though, so there might be more available slots, I'd say its 30% probability right now

     Could care less about overall rating.  As long as they upgrade the individual stats to match H2H (believe he has 92 pace there vs 88 on highest IF), I'll be satisfied.

    Sub for Isco and move Suarez to cam?  Subbed him in as ST and results in 2 games online level 3 - 2 goals and 3 assists.  Just so strong and quick

    Funny to me that in some cases (Walker, Kante) the underlying attributes have basically gone unchanged and yet folks seem to be stumbling all over themselves to buy the latest/greatest.

    Are they doing a league per day or something?  It's only BPL so far isn't it?

     Yes.  EA website says Sunday for the next league.  Assume Bundesliga and/or La Liga given the next WL requirements.

    So my 87 Sanchez will get auto upgraded? or the 88 sanchez will be just "available" in packs (which means ill never in my life pack it), and furthermore driving the price of my 87 sanchez down?

     Only special cards (minus Movember and Scream cards) were updated.  Existing NIF cards stayed the same.

    So if Sanchez base card increases does that mean his 90 IF will go up? Also is it likely his price will rise also? 

     

    Looking to off load him but want to know whens best. 

     Uncharted territory with a "ratings refresh"...  Any info is just pure speculation until this actually  happens, but the hint of both upgrades and downgrades brings the entire upgrade process from previous FUTs into question.  Upgrading/downgrading existing cards instead of releasing new ones could explain the delay in these being released - maybe something failed in testing.  Game isn't exactly "bug free"...

    Sounds like there may possibly be DOWNGRADES too.  Described as a "ratings refresh".  That'd be interesting...

     lol yeah, I doubt it, bit controversial. I thought it meant they might update positions and skill moves but not change the rating
     It's EA, so who knows?  Could make for some interesting trading opportunities, but can't see how downgrading cards would encourage folks to buy more packs (EA's motivation), unless the lower rating increased pack weight maybe?  Just ready for the Mane and O. Dembele upgrades...

    Why is mane 86 if more expensive than his otw which has same stats and potential to go higher? 

     Defies logic unless someone knows that the OTW does NOT get upgraded and the IF does.

    posted a message on WL anyone enjoying this?
    Quote from Red_3ye >>

    By far the biggest problem is still the number of games imo.  Whatever else people complain about - the 'EA bullshit', the dickhead opponents etc. I always find I am enjoying it on Friday and Saturday (unless the servers are bad and the gameplay messed up).  I like the feeling that it's an event and, when I feel fresh and in the zone, I enjoy the level of competition and most opponents are ok to be fair - it's a only a minority that are idiots. It's only when I get to Sunday and I start thinking 'I have to complete X number of games or get Y number of wins' in whatever limited amount of time I have available that it becomes a chore and really not enjoyable.  

     

    We all naturally want to give our best so want to complete 40 if we possibly can to see where we rank, but it's a massive strain to do that and they need to reduce it.  Either that or they need to significantly improve the rewards you can get via seasons.

     Having never gotten close to completing the 40 games, I tend to agree that it's too much.  However, think about all of the horrific gameplay you get now with 40 games (time wasting, PTB, etc, etc) and then imagine how much more precious each win would be if the total game allotment was 30, or 20 - folks would be going out of their mind doing literally whatever they could to win after going up 1-0.  I actually think fewer games would make for even less entertaining gameplay.  I think the easy solution would be to simply make qualifying last 3 days and WL last 4, but I'm not convinced that would make it "more fun" - people still love that opportunity to pack Ronaldo!
