As a fan of icons more than current players, I'm really happy about the new ones added. Still plenty of ones that I'm frustrated are not coming (Barnes, Zico, Zidane etc) however out of the 60, I'm excited by 4 must haves for me.

Cruyff
Rivaldo
Socrates
Best (should have been in 18 again)

I'm hoping EA makes them special like Legends used to be back in 14 and that they're sprinkled with that little something that has been missing since then, with only the elite icons playing like god's.

What Icons are a must for you out of the list and do we think this list is the final list?

    Yh probably final list there is a chance they could announce more at Gamescom or on twitter but apparently they are gonna be showing the career mode and Pro clubs improvements at Gamescom so I doubt they will show anymore fut features or icons there but 69 icons with 3 individual cards each so 3*69=207 different icon cards in FIFA 19 is pretty good

    I’m intrigued by zidane, since pes and fifa haven’t got him. Wonder if he’s not interested at all or asking for too much

    Probably too much who's not interested in money and all he would have to do is get his head scanned into the game

    69 icons i have heard but at the start since there are no primes available, there are still at least 120 icons in the game. But somehow, EA will only give us Bas Dost, Burki,Dzeko or Jonas

    O don't think they've confirmed, but I've seen two leaked lists with them on.

    R9 was the one this FIFA that I absolutely had to get because he is my favourite player but for FIFA 19 definitely going to want to get that Eusebio card, been waiting for ages for him and his card look insane!

    Too high??? its even too low. If this current Neymar is 92 then Prime Cruyff 94 is a disrespect. He should be at least 97 With Maradona and Pele. He is easily among top 5 greatest of all time

    Neymar should have 88 top. Even less.
    I would give Cruyff shoudnt have same rating as cr7 and Messi.
    I would say 93 max if Messi and Cr7 94.

    The problem is that u have some stupid rating like Neymar and Suarez. There ratings are too high.

    I won't be as hyped for icons this year as much as I was last year unless I see Giggs, Cafu or nedved added....I've enjoyed then this year, but I hate the 3 versions thing...and there isn't enough fullbacks or wingers

    Cr7 and Messi are not in their prime anymore. They don't deserve the current rating. Prime Cruyff 93 rated??? Don't disrespect a legend like that. You have Okocha and Luis Hernandez 90 rated and give Johan only 93???

    And yet they're back again popular as ever.

    You could say CR7 ruins the game, or Bakayoko, or Martial or most sweaty Op players so why do Icons ruin the game?

    I'm sure a lot of people will be hankering for Gerrard, Lampard, Raul and hopefully Socrates.

    Why would you denail anyone to play with their heroes?

    In FIFA 14,15,16 on the Xbox, you could and the team was classic 11.

    Ready... it had Cantina, Zico, Peter Shilton, Voller, Roger Mills, Hugo Sanchez and one of my favourite 80s player Marius Trezor.

    Every year I would hope they got promoted to UT, but they never did. Could never understand how EA had the license for them, but not the licence to use them in UT.

    Voller and Zico were unbelievable.

    Can’t wait to not pack any of these players and spend 20 hours a week trading to do a “Prime Icon Sbc” if you can’t tell this is sarcasm

    Yes mate we can tell :wink:

    However... No one is making you do any of the above?

    I agree in someways and think they're should be other avenues in getting them besides just coins (playing 1000 full games) scoring 500 goals with brazilians only. Plenty of ways they could make them easier to get than just coins, but hey, when I finally had enough to play with 91 Maradonna and then 95, it made my Fifa this year, just like Kluivert in 2014, Pele in 15, Best in 16, Del Piero in 17.

    Sometimes it's about getting that one player that can make your FIFA year and when they play just like you expected, well thats the cherry on the cake.

    Sometimes though, they tend to be rubbish... Van Nistlerooy... :(

    Bro fifa 18 there were few meta icons like Vieira,Mattaus,Gullit,Maldini,Carlos,Ronaldo,Ronaldinho now there are so many really good icons like gerard,Raul,Eusebio,Cruyff,Cannavaro etc. Which means players will generally be cheaper than last year and will be easier to get icons.
