The latest FIFA 20 promo is FUT Birthday, a anniversary of Ultimate Team’s beginning. After a anniversary in packs, the aboriginal aggregation has been replaced with aggregation two. Like aggregation one, it’s abounding with big names from the above bristles leagues and not abundant else. That’s not a bad thing. But, as a USA supporter, it’d be nice for some of the bottom leagues and nations to get some love. We charge those Ike Opara links EA! Anyways, analysis out the abounding aggregation below.
As always, the additional aggregation in a promo is abate than the first. In this case, the additional aggregation appearance 11 players in packs compared to the aboriginal team’s 14. Depending on which players you’re wanting, this could be a acceptable thing. If you’re advantageous abundant to backpack a amateur during the promo, it ability be hardly added acceptable to get addition you want. That said, with how backstairs EA continues to be about backpack weight, who absolutely knows?
The big name in aggregation two is acutely Paul Pogba. The French brilliant has been afflicted this division and has yet to get a promo card. Undoubtedly, his agenda abandoned will advertise packs for EA as abounding in the association accept been chomping at the bit for a adapted Pogba. Elsewhere, players like Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette, PSG’s Angel Di Maria, Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale, and Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk angle out as players that will be actual accepted in the promo. And, of course, guys like Douglas Costa and Theo Hernadez are activity to be fun players that accomplish some hype. If you wanted, you could brace Hernadez with his earlier brother Lucas, who had a agenda in the aboriginal FUT Birthday squad.
As far as cold players, you can get Tiemoue Bakayoko in Rivals matches and Jhon Cordoba through Band Battles. Cordoba is a bit of an odd best because the accolade from this season’s objectives is additionally a Bundesliga Striker in Josh Sargent. I accept you could brace the two, but I anticipate best would accept adopted some added variety.
Speaking of variety, it’s account advertence that of the 34 players in FUT Birthday appropriately far 12 of them are French. Germany is the abutting abutting with five. I get it. France has some absolutely abundant players, but the abridgement of array is disappointing. For reference, during the Shapeshifters promo, Brazil had the best players at five. We absolutely couldn’t get one added amateur from a accessory nation? It’s a bit ridiculous.
Of course, the promo is far from over. There will acceptable be at atomic two added amateur SBCs, which is a abundant abode for EA to add in players from abate leagues and nations. Today, they added Malang Sarr (another French player) and it would be a abruptness if we don’t get addition tomorrow. Plus, the affirmed FUT Birthday amateur backpack SBC is acceptable advancing abutting week. Given how big-ticket the players are, I would apprehend it to be a cher SBC. That said, it ability be account the accident if you accept added untradeable players in your club.
FIFA 20 is accessible now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The FUT Birthday promo runs through abutting Friday.
