    Hopefully some of the lower ones get them and get bigger upgrades than the Henry, best cards are getting

    Michael Laudrup could get a 94/95 rated card in that case.

    Still with like 80 passing :D :D :D

    Surely this is the end for prime icon sbc’s? Dont see the value in those now.

    Well it’s only select icons. I guess the biggest ones.

    One of you bidding on that r94?

    Got him for 4.23m, excited to see that haircut in game

    So r94 is the real deal. Had slight concern about him being a m/l but he's constantly on the move. Playing him rs alongside zlatan in a 4222, his shot pretty much always wins at least a corner which is great when you have zlatan too.

    Having him also seems to have helped Rivaldo at RCAM, I think they think I'm going to force it to r94 so now finding time to shoot on Rivaldos left which is deadly

    Already dipping and I doubt the entire playerbase is aware of the situation currently.

    They will go up once they see how expensive these are.

    I do feel bad for whoever completed (fraud) Prime Best sbc. EA must have something planned though (pack only?) because otherwise it is totally out of order
  • I wanted to do Nedved this evening until they released those SBCs and skyrocketed Nakata's SBC price.

    What do you guys think, wait for Friday regardless of what happens with the price or just complete him if his price becomes reasonably?

    Think I’ve decided to go with this front 4. Striker can be Henry or Butra haven’t decided yet. The annoying thing is I’ll probably force myself to get the prime moment versions now and I can only assume they’ll cost quite a bit more.

    @Alexrb89 man I hope that 94 Dinhos SBC is similar to last year (2.5m) should drop his market price to around the same. Then hopefully the prime moment version costs what the 94 currently goes for on the market, 3.5-3.7 mil

    @Alexrb89 if the new prime icons dont have an SBC that allows you to upgrade your card their prices will be way to high to be worth.

    Henry will probably be 1 million coins more than the crap prime. I would not be surprised to see him go for 3,5/4 million for a while.
    All the youtubers, streamers will buy them first for crazy prices and then they will very slowly decline.

    Got a "prime" matthäus for 1.7. Loved him in 2018, and its the cheapest price he's ever been. Good time to try him out. Plus I finally can play Ibra on 10 chem

    Looking forward to the best sports game MLB The Show. EA Sports Canada had never the chance to beat this, perhaps they should focus on a game with Huskies.

    I know they wont be coloured but it definitely makes the icons more appealing with the dynamic images

    is it worth still buying Base/Mid version of Icons? Been waiting for 3 weeks to get either Base/Mid Eusebio or Base/Mid Pele.

    Fair to say this new promo is the reason so many heavyweight Icon SBCs haven't dropped yet?

    I'd say so but it does make you think why did they include Best. Do you think there would be less anger amongst the community if he wasn't included and it was only for icons that haven't been released yet?

    Absolutely. Making the new Magic Moments cards non-SBC'd players would have quieted the discontent immensely.

    EA were clearly disappointed in the return of the previous promos and decided to return to the guaranteed seller, the icons...

    I can't help but to think that there would've been a better way to do this.

    Now some if not all primes are going to become less than, and that's very frustrating for people who have been grinding to get them. At least release every prime / prime SBC etc within a few months of the games release first. Now there is no point even doing icon SBC's is there?

    Well done, maybe a "defining moment" TOTY is coming next.

    That's the scariest part of all of this. Anything is in play now. "Magic Moments - _______ Edition" in April could outmode this current batch for all we know.

    Still early days, but grabbed mid-Eusebio during this dip -- his shot is as nuts as everyone says. Already had 2-3 goals from shots that I thought were too weak or off-balance to go in but they snuck in the goal

    Haven’t tracked him at all but want to try one of his cards, what’s a good price these days?

    2.5 or thereabouts for the 89, who’s better if you want a ST (he’s amazing)
