16:00 UK TIME UPDATE:
Hope you purchased Jensen's agenda afterwards this adventure went live, as (just as predicted) its amount has risen throughout the day, with sites such as Joe acrimonious up on our aboriginal report. At 1pm it was 31,250 coins, at 2pm 42,000, and at 3pm 48,000. That's about £7-9 (or $8-10) in absolute money.
You've about absolutely never heard of Mike Jensen, but if you play FIFA 17's Ultimate Team mode, Mike Jensen is about to become your new footballing hero.
The 28-year-old Danish midfielder with just three caps to his name has had his in-game stats upgraded by way of an in-form 'Team Of The Week' agenda – and as a aftereffect he's gone from bearding Rosenberg crammer to one of the best all-round players in the game. And the best allotment is: he's a argent card.
That agency you can use him in competitions for which gold players are ineligible, admitting accepting bigger stats than a amount of much-better accepted aeon classed as gold. For instance, his all-embracing stats are above to domiciliary names such as Fernandinho, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Steven Gerrard, and – abundantly – Kevin de Bruyne.
Indeed, according to accomplished third-party baronial website Futhead, he's the 38th best amateur in the absolute game.
As an Ultimate Team addict, this account accordingly had me bent to abduction the unknown-yet-great Dane – and, acknowledgment to one locations acceptable acumen and nine locations luck, I nabbed him for the agnate of £3.42.
First I purchased 1050 FIFA Points – the agnate of seven gold packs – for £7.99.
Within the aboriginal pack, I got cool lucky, affairs both a Joel Matip gold agenda and a 'CDM > CM' position-change card. Those two finds abandoned were abundant to accession 10,500 coins.
In the additional pack, a part of a amount of near-worthless junk, I drew a 'Healing: Foot' agenda account 1,700 on the accessory market.
And the third backpack delivered me 81-rated left-back Benoit Tremoulinas, account 3,500 coins, and 600 account of alteration bazaar amount in arrangement items. With those awash an hour later, and the added added cards from the antecedent packs aswell alive – mostly at 150 bill anniversary – I assuredly had the 19,000 bill appropriate to acquirement Jensen.
So I purchased Jensen.
He didn't disappoint, anon getting installed as skipper of my European XI, and outperforming those about him such as axial midfield accomplice Kevin Strootman. And his stats absolutely are batty for a argent card: 82 brawl control, 80 dribbling, 78 abbreviate pass, 87 attempt power, 78 continued shots, 81 vision, 83 composure, 87 stamina, and so on. He's the complete midfielder.
The bolt actuality is that chat is spreading, and accordingly Jensen's amount is rising. The cheapest buy-now amount you can acquisition for him is now 22,000 coins, and that's acceptable to arise afresh the burning this adventure is published. Sorry about that. But apperceive that for those who do ahem up, the investment is added than account it. Just, uh, don't accidentally buy his accepted argent agenda if aggravating to abstract others for the in-form version.
