    Looking for an LW in a 4-3-3 setup. Budget around 1,5 million. Must be able to cut in and shoot, so that rules out Stoichkov and Rivaldo (I suppose).

    Opinions on 90 Henry vs 91/89 Nedved or any other suggestions for that position?

    Stoichkov can still damage cutting in. Just drive it rather than finesse.

    When the infamous baby icon sbc does hit, how fast do you think they are going to come crashing down?

    Most will crash, I don’t see Eus/R9/gullit moving

    Of course they will

    I don’t see demand for them lessening.

    EA won’t change the icon pick concept. It’s “the big thing” for this year, despite being a failure because it wasn’t thought out. The only hope is that they release a very cheap set along with some top tier Icons, or a base Icon SBC. Otherwise, the market will be a disaster all year.

    New icon set tonight EA pls pls!!!

    Nah they are going to scrap the picks it's not feasible. They going to let this set 3 run out than release them like last year.

    Nah, icon set 4 is coming this weekend, EA plans to release all the icons in sets, it's already coded. We might even see two sets released at a time, one with heavy hitters, one with scrubs like Shevchenko and Costa.

    agreed they'll see it as an alternative to Base Icon SBC

    I agree. But Demand is not the only influence on price, right?

    Doesn’t matter right now imo, though. I don’t think we will see a base SBC for months. Just hope we get some fodder icon SBCs soon

    There's 74 icons in total. We've had 15 thus far meaning they need to release another 59 icons. The final icons last year, mainly Pele were on the 12th of April. Gullit was the 22nd of March.

    Going by this time frame, where prime icons go on until early April releases lets see how we can fit 59 icon releases within the next 5 months.

    So, 59 to go and you have 5 months left, that's almost 12 icons a month for the rest of the game, sounds great. But what has the schedule been so far and are they following any patterns from last year?

    First icon release last year was on the 12th of October, the second release was the 2nd of November, third was on the 23rd of November and fourth on the 7th of December.

    First icon release this year was on the 15th of October, the second release was the 26th of October and third currently the 17th of November. So, if we're going by last years awful release timing we may well have to wait until next week. HOWEVER...

    There's more icons this year, in fact there's a massive 34 more prime icon SBC's for them to release compared to last year, almost double the amount, yet currently we're getting them at a similar velocity. Having 9 days between the first release and second this year, and then 22 days between second and third is very stranger. Now we're currently at 13 days since the last release and EA have a situation where they have to squeeze 59 more prime SBC's into 5 months.

    On the flip side by this point last year we had 8 icons and we've had 15 this year meaning they are essentially giving us them at a double rate which is what should be happening.





    TL;DR - expect the next batch to be next week and then another batch of 5 just before Christmas.

    Maybe they're revisiting the Icons Set?

    Last one was exploitable and the ones before were more expensive than their market version

    Obviously we'd all like Icon prices to come down. But at this point I just want to do an SBC for one at a reasonable price. A set that costs maybe 1.5 mill that's made up of icons who's tradeable price is between 1.9 and 2.3 would be perfect.

    Wanted to buy 90 Henry yesterday, did not have enough coins to buy him immediately for the around 1,8 kk he was at that time (pc prices ....). Now today after i sold some stuff he is over 2kk bid and actually sells for that. Wtf people ?

    @James Libby

    Yeah I have! I’ll post it once I get it as to avoid the lurkers but I have an idea of what I want. Hoping for a new icon set though.

    I lied about 89 Cruyff. Best I've tried so far. In smooth gameplay he is unstoppable. I think I will do his prime if I only can chose one because of this man now

    Really enjoyed 89 cruyff, complements CR7 very well. If I can get a nice pull from rewards this month, I’d like to get him again to join Eusebio and CR7
