    For how much do you guys buy the rares? Kinda annoying to mass bid on them imo :D

    TOTW I've packed from this week from doing this. Fraser and Cazorla were tradeable from resulting packs in rui sbc

    Getting bored as hell now, might take the buffon, silva, IF Asenjo and 91 Casillas and just buy the rest.

    Also did Ibra sbc with my lower pulls 😂

    I just got a duplicate casemiro with nothing to use him on... I guess I’ll give the trade pile glitch a try.

    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!

    Mate I reckon you'll easy make over 120k with all the packs from the SBC. With the mind set you have in the OP you know you want to so the SBC.

    Let me know the results I'm interested. Bookmarked.

    Did the 88 SBC for 145k + my upgrade pulls! Costs 320k from scratch so saved some more!

    Only the 87 sbc left, only have IF 87 Asenjo ready for that one.

    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

    No, just started by buying loads of rares then building premium league packs and the the non rares to do gold upgrades. You get 2 rares in a gold upgrade, the normal league pack gives 1 rare and 2 common

    Yea started with 550k in coins and finished yesterday at 200.

    That’s what I’m thinking, wouldn’t it make more sense to do League Upgrade SBCs instead of Gold Upgrades?

    Just based my decision on getting the most rare players and therefore opened the most premium league packs. But at the end of the day it's all luck, they can come from anywhere

    You are guaranteed 2 rares from the gold upgrade but the league upgrade doesn’t.

    So overall this method has worked for me, packed nothing crazy but all the 84’s,85’s,86’s few 88’s and IF’s helped a lot.

    I think it works best for the lower icons because you can’t really use those 83’s 84’s in the higher sbc’s.

    I’m happy I did it anyway! 1.8M Icon for 1M untradable sounds about right for me.

    I'd love to do this for Raul, but I only have 400k. I'll have to save for a few weeks.

    *edit: of course I can't save for a few weeks, as the SBC's expire tomorrow. Ah well.

    Nice Job Man, he’s top drawer so enjoy. Scores assorts for me and very nice headers.

    I will say this method has proved it works but is all dependent on your luck. I couldn’t pull a cracker lately so backed out. To spend 40k and rinse all cards back in without a board got me worried I could hit 150 with minimal stuff. I’ve done the small icons so not much use towards Best what with my luck. I’m still tempted on VVD POTM though but will

    You're doing that all with premium league upgrades? I did a few and got what could be qualified as nothing...
