by the time a big sbc will come out EA will release base Icon SBC and they will be half of what current cheapest icon sbc is

    Last one I did was Baresi and luckily I actually find him decent in game. I was going to do Nakata but had the same thought as you, I don't want to be stuck with him for a couple of months while waiting to submit him into a good Icon. I've switched to a 4-4-2 so Nakata doesn't really have a place in the team either.

    Yeah not a bad shout tbf, by the looks of it it would even now still be a month or two before the big boys. And could well be after a base icon SBC

    Depends, I'm loving using Nakata and you get packs with it. Why not use him until you want to upgrade.

    @TheMightyBee because Nakata isnt even good enough to compete with the top 5 base card CAMs from all top 5 leagues

    I mean I haven’t doke Nakata and obviously he isn’t the best but that comment is clearly idiotic.
    Stats wise he is better than nearly any normal(gold) card CAM, not to mention
    Icons tend to play above there stats and ofc links.

    Maybe people are just happy to use the player because they like them, I'm not good enough to compete at top level so I just use players I've enjoyed watching

    did baresi and nakata and they're both in my current 11 and find them better than what I've had before :)

    unlikely to happen, ea wants to maximise the audience, a r9 that requires 5 icons will be 5m right now which is beyond what even the top 10% can afford

    Now if you release r9 after base icon sbc and when market is crashed, he will be around 3-3.5m just like last year, add in untradeables, a few base icons from the sbc and you only have to spend 2m with coins. That's what EA wants to do, give more people the chance to do the sbc

    LOL

    I would strongly advice everyone to do SBCs like Nakata (very cheap) or players they thing are very useful for their team. I did Campbell as he's a regular for me and I like him, and I also did Baresi and Rui Costa as SBC fodder (Rui Costa used to get Ballack, Baresi still in my team).

    Never forget you also get packs.

    From how this year has gone I think you would be taking a huge risk to try and predict what EA will do.

    You can’t second guess Idiots.

    His shooting, passing and dribbling is incredible, he rockets in shots from all angles and distances for me. Fantastic player for the price, I play him easily ahead of NIF KDB.

    Nakata is a must. Don't think we will see baby icon sbc this year bro. Way many good baby icons like Eusebio,Pele,Cruyff etc. Top 100 don't even get free icons anymore.
    Even if you do, once the sbc will expire prices will be stable.

    Filled up with:
    Raul
    van der Sar
    Nesta
    Baresi
    Nakata

    And I have packed mid Nedved and mid Ballack on the way there :)

    They all play except Nakata who comes in as a sub whenever I need to tweak my tactics

    For me, this has been a great way of prepping for huge icons while having a great team to play with! Might even keep most of them and do a big icon sbc from scratch when it comes out
