Do an icon to get an icon?

Hey folks

With potentially scream boost tonight would you advise doing Rui Costa to get an icon for future icons like Ronaldinho etc?

Could obviously use him until that point but seems a waste not using the screams and I feel they may not drop half as much as last time if they do boost.

Hope this rambling makes sense.

    Thanks, I can’t see myself affording them any other way tbh. I could obviously sell the screams but then I could never afford an icon etc

    Play the long game, I'm still 100k away from completing Costa but only one squad left to do so bit of pack luck and might be done soon, I've already done overmars so hopefully a second icon might be enough for someone special...think will require more than two icons for dinho given what henry was

    Yeah that's the only reason I have Rui Costa, just makes sense.

    Yeah thanks guys. The Henry one knocked me it was so expensive.

    Can prob do the whole Rui tonight if boosts on.

    Overmars would be good too but Rui is central so can be position changed more easily too

    Rui is great if you'll play him at CM, his shooting is good, but too inconsistent for CAM for me. I did him with the idea I'll use him later in an sbc, but he's really good and I'll have a hard time discarding him later (his traceable goes for 1M if that shows his class)

    I used Rui Costa for already 200 games and i think i will never trade him because this card is too good! First i played him CAM and now CM.

    I'd also like to know this, the only sbc i will be doing is R9 way down the line, as i usually think sbcs are a waste, would it be worth to do Rui now and have an icon cam to use until I do it, or perhaps will the sbc's price drop later on too?

    That’s good news as he would be playing in a 442.

    Watch the no scream boost now lol

    Same. I did his sbcs only for future icon but i dont know if I'll trade him in for anyone. I want that Henry though. He is god.

    I wouldnt trade in overmars for anyone so I'd do schmeichel if your just getting rid of him anyway...

    How good is overmars then? Is he better then martial?

    Trading him in for prime henry this week. A trio of bale henry and cr7 should cause havoc.

    Dunno havent used martial didnt really like him in the last one so never bothered. He's great though has amazing shooting on either foot thanks to 5 star weak foot. Not strong at all but he doesnt really need it as he has great speed and dribbling and is quite nimble...

    Done the high rated SBC parts of Rui Costa using my screams Bender x2 Crouch Boateng and Bartra but still have my Ribery and Sturridge as seemed a waste when only needing 86 rated.

    Did have to use an 86 squad for the 85 though as couldn’t get the chem without over egging a bit

    Would it be better to do Hagi's SBC, to complete ADP? on futbin it says 740k for hagi, so not sure if it'd be better to do so

    @JuliantbX dont do that! Buy a cheap icon for like 600k. Leave the hagi sbc for later

    Cheaper to do his sbc then buying a icon on market
