Which ones do you prefer? Not talking about how they perform but more about EA having less players but they have 3 versions vs way more players but just one single card. What 'system' do you like the most?

    This. With the multiple versions you essentially experience FOMO all year.

    More players and less versions.
    Some players are useless having 3 versions.
    Okocha 85 and 87 are already at the same price.

    Half of he icons are barely even upgraded and the ones that are have useless lower versions so what's the point. I'd rather have a bigger list of legends rather than 3 identical versions of the same player.

    Pointless having 3 versions of each player, especially when most of the lower versions are trash and overpriced when compared to NIF in similar positions.

    That's a no brainier. The more Icons the better. The bigger problem is Icons being used for SBCs, meaning prices will never be low like before. You could have Valderamma, Furte and Pauleta for the cost of the cheapest Icon now.

    Such a shame Baresi isn't in the game.

    Icons (Way less players but they all have 3 cards)
    I like the concept of having cards for different stages of their career featuring different stats and positions.

    Ultimately I really don’t care. They should add more icons. I think they just dropped the ball with the timing of all the licenses expiring and focused heavily on landing some bigger names which tbf are names many of us have been begging for. Just gimme my Best back.

    I prefer the concept of a card having three different cards to represent different times in their career.

    But to make them even better they need to

    1. Have all versions available at all times
    2. Should have kept the legends from last year and just added to them, more need adding next year.
    3. Each and every icon needs to have different in game faces like the select five do.

    Pretty dumb having a prime ADP with a bald card picture and him having hair in game.

    Agreed.

    The schedule is the worst thing about Icons

    Totally disagree. Maybe irrelevant to you but many enjoyed using them.

    Like the fact that there's three of each icon adding variety but they should definitely add back those that were in the game last year. As said before to actually represent each stage of the Icons career they should change the game faces. It's great we have 3 versions of ADP for example but they need to add in more Icons.

    There doesn't need to be 3 versions of the same player

    Not when it comes at the expense of other icons

    Not sure about high end ones...

    I think it'd be better if each icon had 2 - normal and prime but there were more of them

    The icon system has massive potential.

    If it was up to me I would make a number of changes though.


    1. Increase the number of cards from 3 to 5. Provide players real value in choosing which icon they want.
    2. I don't mind there being prime SBC for them but releasing them in this manner is really poor. It is killing the hype for icons a) don't want to buy because you might lose coins when they release the prime b) it is artificially inflating all icon prices (even bad ones).
    3. The number of unique players is far too low. Certain positions are baron as it stands. I would ideally increase this significantly. We lost way too many from 17 to 18. Bit stale because of it.
    4. A lot like 2, have prime cards available at launch. January for Vieira....

    Tbf, the SBCs this year skew that. Most lower end icons are expensive because of the SBCs. Take that away and a fair amount of them would be sitting around the 200k mark right now

    Also having variety is better for prices. Give us a choice at RM for instance. You can choose between Best, Ljungberg and Best on FIFA 17. You only have 1 Ockhocha card on 18.
