@EA_Andy

It's 4 months in and no marquee icon yet

Is the team aware, can get an answer

This is absolutely disgusting, like, it's a joke

I'm not spending anything on FP and honestly put off by 20 if the devs want to keep trolling us, there's no other reason

These sbc's help the market and encourage FP spending, there's enough accurate external data to show that, so EA are losing money at peak player times of the game to troll us.

We want answers or acknowledgement it's being addressed, drop one this week ffs it's disgraceful

And don't give us that live mechanism bs, unless 1 buy hoards 10 prime peles to drop at the same time a lot of us have seen EA inject players into the market

And to top it off, wtf is being hoarded or manipulated, our UT icons or gold cards that are used for everything


@futfanatic @MHoney1234 let's keep this up until we get an answer

    Just buy the icon you want and sell when you’re done and keep swapping them out.

    Surely that’s a better use of your coins?

    People enjoy the sbc's, I like my icons to be first owner/fresh and the sbc is fun, and I know which are never leaving my team

    I’m with you bro, problem is, you rarely get an answer off anyone. Zaro preached more communication, but it’s been a wall of silence. Those pitch notes are about as useful as a chocolate tea pot.

    Its obvious they are holding them back as they think this will increase fp sales. They release expensive sbc (like Flash backs, Hamsik, and the other players sbcs we have had recently) and hold back the big icons, so that people get fed up of waiting and do the sbcs that are on offer, thus draining their coin total. When the big boys are released, EAs hope is everyone will be too poor and willhave to buy fp.

    If they release the big primes now, a lot of players will not need to go hunting for the new shiny cards in any upcoming promotion, so fp sales take a hit.

    What EA havent factored in is that by alienating some of their player base this way, many will not bother playing until they do come out, and may not bother at all next year which will probably hurt fp sales more.

    I get why people enjoy sbcs, but more recently I have been enjoying sbcs for players which are unavailable on the market.

    If it was last year then yeah I understand the frustration as the cards weren’t available on the market but this year they are

    Because people can get the sbc much cheaper especially with untradables for example not many people have 6mil + to buy prime R9 but when his is sbc gets released he will be like 4mil give or take abit. Makes him much more attainable especially if you've got plenty untradables.

    It’s because people have planned their game around the SBC. I’m on PC and will never afford the crazy prices for one of the top icons but I have taken untradables every week, I’ve completed 4 other SBCs in preparation but they still haven’t dropped one yet.
    Being on PC I’m only going to be able to afford 1 of them and they had already dropped a couple by now last year.
    It’s obvious they are being held back this year to help FP sales, by the time they do drop I will probably have stopped playing.

    Exactly

    They say they're going to make the SBC's handled better

    They give us all these untradeable rewards

    They then release promo cards of equal rating/similar rating to these icons including SBC's but still haven't released them

    @EA_Andy Can we get an actual answer that has nothing to do with the live mechanism bs

    You're an intelligent guy, it'd take someone of low intelligence to use that as a legitimate excuse, because the things that are supposedly being "hoarded" are what;

    High rated golds? Used for everything

    IF's? Used for everything

    Nation high rated cards? Used for almost everything too

    Untradeable icons? That has no effect on the market, they're our UT cards

    We don't want a time line of every freakin icon, that would influence the market and hoarding of nation specific IF's

    But can we get SOME dropping, I'm not going to buy FP or play the game again in a few months because an icon drops, a lot of people don't, I've seen the numbers, the events they've done in the past haven't had a big spike in returning players

    Holding off big icon sbc's till the end of the game is a massive spit in the face to the community, no one is sitting here going "man I hope they save that Gullit SBC until the game has 1 month left and we have full TOTS + TOTY cards and I'm over it"

    @EA_Andy

    Some form of communication would be nice, this is unacceptable.

    There are special cards higher than the current prime icon SBC's.

    TOTY has been released.

    At this rate the decent icon SBC's won't be out until the game is NOT BEING PLAYED ANYMORE.

    What is so hard to understand about that.

    Give us a reason to spend FP on, make the market rise, drop a prime icon SBC.

    Can the dev's stop trolling us, stop with this disgusting filthy nonsense about a live mechanism and give us some CONTENT.

    The first big ones came on Black Friday last year. I think it was Henry. Vieira was the day after Christmas.
  • George best was a pretty big icon imo. Hell never leave my first team. The funny thing is that ive never played an opponent used him? He just doesnt seem like it because he didnt play during our lifetimes.

    Steven Gerrard would be my choice, mainly because he was my favorite player back in the day.

    For actual gameplay dhino or maradonna would be cool

    The problem is this year you can simply buy the prime ver from the market so in a way they are attainable.

    Instead of waiting for the prime SBC may be you should just buy TOTY cards.
