Player Review

This isn't a new card, so we won't go over the stats that you already know.

Instead, we'll help you decide whether you should opt for the SBC version of El Nino, or head to the market to pick up his tradeable version.

Currently, mid-tier Torres is available for 930k on PlayStation and 1M on Xbox

Now, whilst a saving of 80k may seem tempting to those on Xbox, for a player this valuable, we'd strongly recommend going for the tradeable version of this card.

You will get eight packs back in return for completing the SBC, but none of them are worth the risk involved with spending over 800k on an untradeable card that you can pick up tradeable elsewhere.

Don't take the risk, this SBC isn't worth it.
