Could we see a gifting option in 21? like if a friend of mine has the live series collections done and he pulls degrom. And he does not need him, but i may need him to get collections done. So, he could gift that card to me.
This same idea can be put towards stubs.
What do we all think of this?

SDS

If they will, we're all gonna have a lot of friends who we will gift our beautiful silver and bronze cards for PayPal transactions. I'm obviously joking but yeah this will never happen for this reason alone.

I think it's a terrible idea which would be abused. Do you think "HR with ___ and I quit" team names are bad now? Just wait until you can "trade" a high level card to your opponent/"friend" for a win.

oooohhhhhhhhhhh, like a bribing method?

We all think it's a horrific idea that's too easily exploitable.

"Trading" has been done in other sports games. It's a great idea on paper, but it always goes horribly wrong.

SDS

Think of this as a business because it is. If they allow you to trade they do not get as many 10% transaction fees coming out of folks accounts. People can pull card A and trade for card B without the need to open as many packs in hopes of pulling the card. That will cost SDS money. So they need money from another model and that model becomes Maddenesque. You now have to use training points or some other card-to-capital system to level up players. I still wished they allowed it because I think trading is fun. I don't mind multiple cards of the same player in a progressive release manner, but I don't want any other capital used to level them up. If I was forced to have traded in game and need to level up or not have trading in the game, I would prefer that it not be there. In any scenario SDS has to make money.

In FIFA guys that pull really high level diamonds go on streamers pages that have a lot of money and sell them for 1000s of dollars and 100s of 1000s of in game currency. The method would be abused.
