    Depends massively on when they drop it, if it’s now you’d be looking at 500k+ high rated and special cards, if it’s towards the end of the year like last year maybe more along the lines of 200k

    I reckon it’ll need 84,85,86 and 87 rated squad to make it on par with the price of the lowest icons.

    I don’t see it happening until the spring. It would have happened by now if it was coming before then.

    Hoping it will happen over FUTmas maybe for only a couple of days with similar requirements to last year.

    They can't make them as inflated as the baby icons already are!

    Don't make the mistake that EA can't screw something up

    No way it happens before any of the big icons drop. I'm calling the next set is gonna be an expensive one.

    Sick of discussing it if I’m honest

    The markets a total mess and seemingly EA want to do F all about it. I’m genuinely past caring

    Seriously. ?? They are just waiting for the 3rd SBC to expire before dropping it...
    Otherwise everyone will end up with a prime for basically nothing.
    It’ll drop in 11 days then they can readjust the forthcoming SBCs from there on

    I think you’re giving EA too much credit. They released set 3 without realizing people could endless rinse it for a 50k and 100k pack.

    They won’t want Prime Zola/Zanetti going for any less, particularly not sub 500k

    Not at all,
    They had a full week before set 2 finished to realises those actions plus what actions dropping a base icon SBC would have to current icons on the market.
    Why hasn’t a new one been released when 2 ended on Cyber Monday...
    that would have been a prime day to drop another set and sell more fp

    Wouldn't necessarily mean the set will go for sub 500k. As others have said, a base icon SBC at this point would cost at least 500k, so that alongside the other SBCs required wouldn't lower the price of set 3 much.

    This, plus it’s not like set 3 is that coveted. Which of those players are so strong that they couldn’t cost 700k? None of them are meta / end game players. They will all likely be close to SBC fodder price eventually.

    Why go to the hassle though? And risk upsetting people? Easier to just let that sbc expire

    I expect it before the set 3 expires. I did all other sets, just waiting for the legend.

    That still wouldn't solve the icon prices though.

    Does anyone have a chart or link that tells you how many of each rating cards you need to make up to a required squad rating??

    There will be a set with the 5 worst Primes left instead (with high rated squads for about 500k), imo.
