Another day, another FUT Freeze SBC.
The Winter promo has brought some absolute belters so far, with the latest addition no different.
Step forward RB Leipzig's Konrad Laimer.
FUT Freeze Laimer SBC Information
It's one of the more realistic position changes that we've seen during this promo so far.
It's a switch from CDM to RB for the Austrian. Here is everything that you need to know.
Start & Expiry Date
Start Date: Monday, December 21 - 6pm GMT
Expiry Date: Saturday, December 26 - 6pm GMT
Requirements & Estimated Cost
We have a feeling this will be one of the less favourable SBC's that we see throughout the course of this promo.
That being said, EA are still asking for two squads in return for the Austrian.
- RB Leipzig Players: Minimum One
- Team Rating: Minimum 83
- Team Chemistry: Minimum 80
- Reward: One Gold Players Pack
- Bundesliga Players: Minimum One
- Team Rating: Minimum 85
- Team Chemistry: Minimum 70
- Reward: One Prime Mixed Players Pack
At the time of writing, the estimated costs for this SBC are as follows.
- PlayStation: 155k
- Xbox: 163k
150-160k is the asking price, but is Laimer worth it?
There's no doubt in our mind on this one, save your money.
This isn't a bad card by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, it's a pretty good one.
91 pace, 85 physicality and 83 defending make for a very good right back. Not to mention his 81-rated dribbling and 83-rated passing for those who like an overlapping fullback.
Here is our issue though.
His 3*/3* isn't great, but not the end of the world. It's the fact he's yet another right back, and yet another Bundesliga right back at that.
The vast majority of people who needed a Bunesglia right-back will have likely completed Objectives Mukiele from earlier in the year. Yes, he's not as good, but he's still decent and he was free.
The fact Laimer is Austrian severely limits the teams you can build him into too. We'd say to save your coins.
