So when is our big icon dropping?...

1
We’ve gone around 4 months with no premium icon. (R9, Ronaldinho,Gullit etc.) So when are we expecting our first one and who are you most hoping for? Personally I’m waiting on Ronaldinho, love him in game. :)

    Never hopefully icons are only just dropping to reasonable prices. A big one will put prices up.

    Imagine a game that keeps content locked (unless you pay or trade loads and can afford the 3 mil + price tag for these icons) until halfway through the game cycle.

    It’s actually ridiculous. Last year we had a few big icons by this time? Trust EA to make it worse

    They screwed up with the first icon player pic sbcs. It put the price of icons up and investors held ea to ransom. Some Base icon prices are only just under 500k now. It’s taken months for them to drop in price. Ea messed up on a lot of stuff with Fifa 19, icon player pic was a huge miscalculation. Who has 3-4 million for a top icon anyway?

    It’s not that prices would be much less if they gave us SBCs. Ronaldinho last year was a 3M SBC and I doubt this year it will be any different

    The price for these top rated icons will be astronomical. More so than previous years due to the amount of coins in game now.

    Whats the point of having a big icon, you will only be at a disadvantage in WL gameplay

    Yeah but I feel a lot of people have high rated untradeables from rewards and are waiting to use them in a big icon, likewise with doing a few of the cheaps icons to throw in as well.

    I don’t have enough to buy a top tier icon yet, but I could certainly rinse my club and manage to grind out an sbc for one. Also, it will help lower their market price a lot.


    We shouldn’t have to wait till nearly tots (12 weeks from now) to get at least a couple of these sbc’s

    it's good that they're so expensive.

    they should be hard to attain.

    whatever ea can do to keep prices high, especially icon prices, the better.

    i don't care that I can't afford some players.

    I'm not elite so I shouldn't have a chance at all the elite players.

    i have been able to build a pretty strong squad tho inspite of this... spotm Reus, 92 Bale, about 3 mil in tradable pieces.

    as long as prices are high then the game is still thriving. that's what it's all about for me.

    a dead games is a game not worth playing.

    Probably bring out all these icons which don't need an icon but need 88,89 and 90 rated squads

    Gullit is going to be about 4M as well, mental.

    About those high rated untradables, I haven’t had over an 84 from untradable Rivals rewards for 6 weeks now. Packs have been garbage lately for me.

    You sir, are a moron. :wink:

    EA love you though.

    Can’t really wrap my head around this line of thinking. I’ve already paid over £60 for the game, I’ve played every mode every week for rewards, I’ve got over 300 hours in game yet I still can’t afford the top icons. Unlike you I’m rather peeved off about that situation.

    Gullit is my first choice as I won’t be able to afford R9. To be honest I probably won’t be able to afford Gullit even although I current have 4 icons and around 1.4M coins.

    How come you won't be able to afford R9 with 1,4m coins and 4 icons currently ?
