NepentheZ explains why the FIFA 20 Modric SBC is “outrageous value”

Popular FIFA YouTuber Craig ‘NepentheZ’ Douglas has explained why the brand new Luka Modric Flashback SBCs in FIFA 20 are such good value, claiming that he is a phenomenal midfielder available at a mid-tier price. 

A number of FIFA 20 fans have commended EA for their recent SBC additions, claiming they are becoming far better value for coins. The recent Danny Ings TOTSSF Moments card, for example, has been praised for being one of the PL’s best forwards, available at just 250k.

The Modric SBC, like a number of FIFA 20’s most recent SBCs, has a basic and premium version of the Croatian midfielder. The first is an impressive 93 OVR CM, while the second comes in at a mind-blowing 96 OVR.

Away from the card’s impressive stats, it is a remarkably simple SBC to complete. Only requiring to squads, they can both be completed for roughly 210,000 coins. The 93 OVR Modric, on the other hand, can be completed for just 80,000 coins. 

“That is exceptional, exceptional value,” Douglas said, after having a look at the Premium Modric’s mind-blowing stats. “Right, before we build it and complete it, because I am going to build it and complete it, that is just an SBC that is too good to be true.”

NepentheZ ultimately argued that the card should cost nearer to half a million coins, as opposed to the 200,000(ish) it currently costs. Not only are its stats incredible, but it can be linked with a host of top-tier defenders, like Eder Militao or Diego Carlos.

“You can fault this [SBC],” he summarized. However, he then turned his attention to why EA are giving such a good player for such a low price, and suggested that it’s because FIFA 20 is rapidly approaching the end of its life-cycle.

“The reason why I think we’re getting these cards and getting them so cheap,” he said, “is because EA are fully aware that this game is as good as done, right? People are playing their last weekend league ever… the only way EA are now from this point onwards gonna be able to get people back on the game is by offering too good to be true content.”

While NepentheZ is probably correct, and EA are offering exceptional value SBCs to get players back playing FIFA, it still means that fans are able to get some truly incredible cards for significantly lower prices.

Compare Modric to some other La Liga midfielders, and the bargain becomes even clearer. Frenkie De Jong TOTSSF currently sells for upwards of 500,000 coins and Nabil Fekir will set players back 310,000. Modric, at 200,000, is a snip, as NepentheZ is keen to emphasise.

EA Sports is rolling out some special Black Friday Squad Building Challenges and Objectives for Black Friday, and we’ve got all the info you need to make the Flashback Sergio Aguero and Record Breaker Rodrygo cards all yours.

Man City’s star forward has an all-new SBC available for Black Friday, along with Real Madrid’s Rodrygo, who gets a new set of Objectives for players to complete.

Let’s get the warning on price out of the way right here, completing Aguero’s SBC will not come cheap, but the good news is that there’s potential to pick up Rodrygo for absolutely nothing.

We’ll get the Objective requirements out of the way first since they obviously don’t require specific solutions like the SBC will. This Record Breaker card celebrates Rodrygo becoming the youngest-ever player to score a hat-trick in the UCL.

There are five requirements in total, and like we mentioned you don’t necessarily have to spend anything to complete them unless you’re lacking 8 LaLiga players to put in your starting squad. You can find the full list below:

  • Hat Trick Hero: Score at least 3 goals in one match using Brazilian players in the Live FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 8 LaLiga players in your starting squad.
  • Setup Skills: Assist 8 goals using players with minimum 4* Skill Moves in the Live FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 8 LaLiga players in your starting squad.
  • LaLiga Lessons: Score in 13 separate matches using LaLiga players in the Live FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 8 LaLiga players in your starting squad.
  • Heroic Heading: Score 3 Headers in the Live FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 8 LaLiga players in your starting squad.
  • Winning Streak: Win 7 matches in the Live FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece with at least 8 LaLiga players in your starting squad.

This SBC has four different challenges, and like we mentioned it will not be too cheap at all, coming in at around 430,000 to 490,000 FUT coins depending on your platform of choice.

That’s not saying it isn’t a worthwhile card, with 90 Dribbling, 88 Pace, and 85 shooting, he would be a great addition to any lineup, it just comes down to whether or not you want to spend that kind of cash. The challenges for Aguero’s Flashback SBC are listed below:
