How hard do you think it will be to pack icons? Think Boras did a 1 million FIFA point pack opening at the capture event and only packed 1, maybe they'll alter pack weights when the game is actually out but I highly doubt it.

    if they're required for SBCs surely you think that they'd be able to drop more

    Yeah they will be near impossible. I say maybe 3 packed between everyone in the Xbox cc, and that's being very generous.

    Edit within the first 2 weeks of full release.

    I am guessing even the lower versions will be expensive. Then if they get eating by sbc will drive the price up even more. Hopefully I am wrong though.

    Yet most of us didn't.. I'm sure somebody here, (@DarthGrowler maybe?) packed 2 Gullits last year.
    Most of us won't pack any though I suspect. I'm assuming they'll be pack weights similar to the legends. I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it!

    until people know for sure if/how many icons are needed for sbc prices are going to be high. pack weight will be awful as always, but will probably be guaranteed icon sbc a couple of times

    Packed three legends this year (Effenberg, Scholes and Weah) having never got one in all the previous editions of FUT combined...

    ... following this upward trend all but guarantees me an Henry surely? :trollface:

    Suspect they might up the pack weights at the start for early game hype and getting a few icons out there. Just a guess

    From a select few opening packs to millions of people opening packs. I am pretty sure they won't need to change the pack weights.

    I would hope the pack weight is much better this year considering we lost 41 from last years roster

    I'd have thought that overall, the chances of packing an icon will be broadly similar to the chances of packing a legend. By that I mean extremely slim...
    Even if they double the weight, you'll probably find it's gone from a 1 in 50,000 chance, to a 2 in 50,000 chance of finding one in your pack. I don't know if these figures are remotely accurate, but you catch my drift I hope..

    Done alright this year, packed 6 legends, Ruud x 2, nedved, Neville, Hierro & larsson

    Hope it continues on the new one but I doubt it lol

    At least that most likely means that there will be no Icons needed for Prime SBCs except maybe for the top end ones like Ronaldo/Maradona.

    Packing 1 from 1mil coins is a pretty good return based on previous years. I've opened a stupid amount of packs this year and not got any.

    In that case that sucks, I was hoping this was my year to finally pack a legend, but based on that it's never gonna happen. :cry:
