The Icon SBC situation

I need to have a quick rant. Why the F ain’t EA releasing these ones at a higher rate?

The ones I want seem so far away, and for me they are the best “content” of the game. But it’s not that much fun putting millions into an sbc mid May.

Don’t come in here with your “you can buy the card of the market” ****. With untradable rewards and upgrade sbcs many of us sit on loads of untradables which will drive the price down a lot.

This Icon situation is really, really frustrating.

    It’s 100% legitimate having this discussion. I ain’t being rude or something like that.

    Icons is such a big part of the game, and the lack of transparency from EA makes people frustrated. With good reason.

    To be honest I don't get all this uproar. Apart from like 6 Icons, there are a ton of players in the game who are better by now, whilst also giving a bunch of choices of players who would normally never get any boosts. Also provides more chance to pull something which is always a nice rush.

    @Fab is spot on it's all about keeping us playing or drawing us back in to keep the fifa points selling till the next Fifa,the best primes were never ever gonna drop before Mid March/April it makes no sense for EA to rush them out in their eyes

    Money. That’s why.

    They know if they drop promo after promo they can rinse the points as people will buy them for packs. Then once the game has been out for 70% of its shelf life and the stats show people are reducing their spend/play time on the game they drop a big icon SBC and everyone comes running back to complete and play again.


    It’s a money making exercise and nothing else.

    Which is a percent of a percent, who happen to be the whales and the ones they know can keep spending if they release them sporadically and slowly.

    Well, that’s a top draw generalisation there isn’t it.

    Again, someone totally clueless to the concept of nostalgia, or being half decent at the game to get the best rewards, or getting lucky in a pack or well anything else really.

    There are naive people on the forum and some people that post naieve statements

    You’re literally 2 for the price of 1

    Icons kept me playing this game. This has been my first FUT since like fifa 14.

    I was literally about to stop playing the game 2 months ago, then I though F it and put the majority of my coins into a SBC Icon, and since then I've done 4 more and literally the most enjoyment I'get out of this game is building the Icons because to me they feel a bit more special when you don't buy them off the market.

    I won't be able to afford any of the top end ones, but I get why people who have been waiting for them want them released, the game is literally a non stop grind and the fun is getting the players you want, mainly due to the design of the game being win at all costs + the terrible gameplay

    This is the exact reason for it.

    Any argument about them being ‘gamebreaking’ or too OP is completely undermined by doing the ffs promo, not to mention the toty players being the best of the best statistically.

    Ea are greedy and grabbing every penny they can before loot boxes and Fifa points are outlawed.

    And I literally started typing that before seeing about the ‘prime’ prime icons 😂

    Absolute farce.

    Fut is going down the same road as Mut. I'll just hold my coins for all the 99s they will release later on.

    This. People who know/play MUT saw this coming. Not surprised.

    This thread did not age well at all. Curious about how this icon moments will work, given that Henry and Matthaus did not get an SBC yet.
