Yep, now everybody will have 5 Icons in their teams. Not sure how I feel about it. They shouldn't have made it repeatable in my opinion. More like one every week.

Anyway, post your pulls here, lads. I will do a couple, too, I think. Must get rid of my duplicate CR7's, Hazard's, Modric's etc.

    No. And repeatable. 83 rated 60chem 442 formation.
    There is also a loan ICON SBC for 5 games with a requirement of 79 rating but why would anybody that...

    I presume that will mean that TOTS prices will hopefully plummet... right? :|

    Yep, exactly. I think this was yet another bad move by EA. Now it isn't actually a "World Cup mode" but a "FIFA mode with players who used to play at the World Cup". Except to see R9, Ronaldinhio, Pele, Blanc etc. in every team now... TOGETHER.

    The requirements are also way too low in my opinion. Especially considering a lot of players will get upgrades and an even higher rating. 83 with 60 chem is doable for pretty much everybody even if you only played 15 games as of now.


    Anyway... my first pull. Will do more after the Germany friendly game (come on, Die Mannschaft!!! :D)

    I was running out of high rated Players, so I used the Original Icon I received at the start of WC Mode, 87 Maroslav Klose to bump up the Rating to 83 and I packed 98 Pele!!!

    So what is your opinion on these? Is it a good thing from EA that they're repeatable and have quite low requirements or do you wish, like I do, that not everybody will play with nearly full ICON teams now?

    On a plus side, now "hybrids" will be much easier.

    Did it 5 times:

    Klose 2x
    Moore 2x
    Nakata

    Still have plenty of useless players. Will keep going until I got Ronaldinho. <3

    meh tbh i'll have more fun on my RTG as I won't be able to spam 15-20 of these... but it's fun for opening packs.

    my main account I think i'm 4 short now previously only had 1 lol which tbh i'll hardly ever use.

    Mattahuas
    Ronaldo
    Pele
    Blanc

    Icons are the only cards that are not dynamic though...so what's the point in having a whole team of them...as soon as the WC actually kicks off...icons won't be as OP as they are now.

    Also there's like...what, 10 icons? This has got dupes written all over it...

    Honestly, I think there are some Icons (Ronaldo, Matthäus, Blanc, ...) who will be better/the best even after the actual World Cup is done and all of the players got their upgrades. And four years ago only one player from each of the 64 (?) games got a upgrade. So it's not garantueed that players like Varane or Paulinhio who are really good in WC mode get upgraded.

    I think there are 17 Icons in total.
