You can bring cost down even further by:

- Doing Litmanen,Zanetti, and Crespo first, not to mention you get packs too

- Using Zanetti for high rated squads instead of just Icon Challenge
-
- Using 87 rated IFs instead of 84, cause normal 87 rated cards are as much as in forms while normal 84 are considerably cheaper


And of course sell every player from the packs, store consumables in the club and discard rest



Should bring cost down by at least 200k on a 1m Icon with no pack luck

    didnt know crespo was that cheap, thanks. Looking to finally do Prime R9 but i literally only have the coins for the 5 icons :D should be able to do it though since I have a **** ton of 90+ players

    94 rated TOTS are good value imo, they bring cost down so much

    I done Maldini last night for around 250k, couldn't believe it! Used some unusable TOTS cards plus my monthly reward cards. As usual I didn't pack anyone higher than 84 though!

    Might do Zanetti now to actually use. Is he worth the coins?

    He's dirt cheap and is 92 rated Icon, good value imo

    Cheapest Icon on xbox market is 155-160k, Litmanen sbc is 150k while Zanetti is 127k, without counting rewards

    Do those 2, as for Crespo he's 190k to complete but the rewards will cover that 30k deficit with a chance to pack something good while also being 90 rated.


    Another one is Nesta who is 190k to complete but same as Crespo, rewards will cover deficit while also being high rated



    @fauxylar Schmeichel at 202k without rewards is also a good one since he's 92 rated and packs will make him 160-170k without luck

    Crespo is so good to use in game. Such a shame anyone would even think about just discarding him into another icon.

    Not a game changer in the same category as CR7/R9/Henry/Gullit.

    Given that you have limited room for forwards no surprise that he's going into sbcs

    He isn’t in my first team but I have him up front in my second team. I prefer him to Henry. And prefer him up front to Gullit (who I have CM). Plus I like using players I liked irl, and Crespo is definitely in that category.

    I completed prime ADP a few days ago for dirt cheap and found him to be absolutely brilliant for me, is it because you're bored and fancy a change or don't you like him? He's pushing prime Maradona for a starting spot in my first team he's been doing so good. So clinical from everywhere.

    Done Zanetti for 60k, no brainer I’ll eorher keep or start Maradona and chuck him in that, although after few games I prefer him to Tots Kimmich

    Yeah true very true. Just was looking at Henry as he can be brought for less than 800k so therefore the money is not lost..

    R9, even though I did Henry but that's because I was still 200k short of Henry and R9 would cost me like 500k more which I didn't have. So it was either have Henry or spend all summer trying to get R9 and then Fifa 19 comes out

    So u think I shouldn't go for the tradeable Henry and get the R9 sbc started?

    Henry is fantastic, I have no regrets. But if you have the opportunity to try R9, do it.

    But if you never played a M/M striker before and not sure if you like it, try Henry tradeable, should be good way to wet your feet.

    They play similar: M/M, Tries to beat Defensive Line, Speed Dribbler, Finesse Shot

    It comes down to weakfoot and balance mostly. I play Henry with Hawk (better than Engine, Hunter) and he's winning me games in Fut Champions, his weakfoot ain't bad

    Try tradeable Henry first and then get R9, to know how will you handle M/M positioning

    Yeah I think I will have a bash. I'm assuming it takes time to get used to
  • I did prime Maradona using all my untradable tots i had brought the SBCs down a lot Iain 93 and 94 rated players.

    Do wish I'd have done the R9 one instead but didn't think I had enough icons. Turns out I should ha e submitted crespo too and bought one but never mind.

    Would you guys do Ronaldinho and submit icons like crespo, zanetti and rijkaard plus a bunch of tots (mane, courtious, rabbiot, kimmich, batshauyi)? I think that might bring his price to around 400k maybe less

    You need 5 icons to do R9, doing litmanen would get me the 5th icon but then that would mean i would need to submit crespo, rijkaard, zanetti, litmanen and ferdinand but i'd hate to submit ferdinand.
