So I’m hearing people do this, league upgrade packs, use what they get to do the icons sbc’s!

I wanna do it just for the hell of it, thinking Raul.

However, do I first do a lower icon to put into Raul sbc?

And which league upgrade packs are best to do this?

    I done these over the past 2 days for Best and POTM VVD. I done Rui Costa first and used alot of untradables then everything under 83 rated from the packs then went into 82+ and premium pl upgrades to bring the cost of the Best SBC down.

    Then yesterday for POTM VVD I done the PL premium upgrades to bring the cost of it down.

    Think I saved a few hundred thousand at least by doing this.

    Ive been doing it all week that I could.

    It does work to an extent but it still costs you a fair amount.

    Not packed anything huge but have packed a ton of walkouts and 85s and 84s.

    Hey guys, thank you for your opinions.

    So the first decision I need to make is to do Rui Costa sbc or to buy an ICON.

    Sbc is 650k, icon cost 530k to buy!

    I need to save 120k to make it worth it to do it!

    Been doing it with LaLiga, it’s fun but kind of a grind. In the past day I have pulled Godin x2 and Navas as well. Lots of 85-83 as well.

    Yes I think it’s not worth it to do Rui Costa so first up is getting an Icon for a good price!

    What’s the exact method to do it? I have 780k just sitting there and I’m not playing. Just buy a load of rares and rinse them into the upgrade? How much would you say to spend?

    Its basically recycling everything from the upgrade packs and when you’re close to having enough for part of the sbc you buy the rest to finish it. You don’t want to get a duplicate at the wrong moment.

    So I’m gonna push the icon buying a bit ahead.

    I’m starting with a coin total of 1.44M, and a 91 casillas to put in the sbc. Will have to buy all the golds for the upgrade packs!

    I think I’m starting with ligue 1, not a lot of rare golds there.

    Will take quite a long time, I might try to do rui Costa tonight. Did it last night, and my coin balance went down 350k but I got ibra, potm vvd, toty de gea and toty mbappe (both untradable) and a boat load of untradables (Cavani, mane, veratti, Alison etc)
    Got 200k left in liquid coins so I'll rinse that through tonight and see if I can get anymore toty's and hopefully i can get Costa done fairly cheaply along the way

    How much did you start with mate? Go straight for the rares or start with plain gold upgrades. How much would you put in to start? I’ve 780k just sitting there and I’m bored

    You do the premium league upgrades. = 3 rares 9 non rares

    Non rares into the normal gold upgrade (under upgrades) +3 bought = 2 rares

    Total = 5 rares. So you buy 6 rares and repeat it over and over.

    So you keep 83s and above for sbcs. Switch between BPL, Ligue 1 and La Liga so you dont rack up duplicates.

    Having done it a lot it does work very well but still it will eat up coins.

    Cheers buddy, would you say to go all in or just start with a set amount?

    Generally, with a bit of luck you can knock of 300-400k with a 100k use of coins. Atleast that’s what I did earlier with Campbell.

    So I did the first five upgrade packs from ligue 1, packed a few 83’s 84’s and a buffon! So that’s a good start. Will now do a few pl ones.

    I wait until I get a dupe then decide which sbc to do him in

    Deffo worth doing, I did Keane last night after the recycling and packed bale in the 100k pack, cost me about 205k to do him, will put him into Best later unless they release someone else I want

    Worked out that to do 5 upgrade packs it costs me
    1) 11x750= 8.250
    2) 2x 400 coins to do gold upgrade with the non-rares
    3) 5 rare golds + 6 rare golds for 4.5k from the market.

    So after the first one it costs rougly 5k to do another one. One good pull from 5 packs would do!

    Packed 3 IF’s an 85 and an 84 I can use.

    From the 500k I also have an 87 rated team with 2 informs so probably around 300k worth waiting for the next sbc. Obviously I was very lucky to get 1.4m for Marcelo but couldn’t rate this method highly enough
