As title says, ridiculous idea by ea no more grinding for our iconic players. If you haven't got 3 million now or in the next 30 you ain't having him ffs 🙄

    I agree, especially for moments.

    Took the bit out in the title so the thread doesn't get locked :)

    The coin buyers can all afford him; but almost none of the rest of us can. Well thought out plan EA! :D

    Agreed, these time limits are a joke. You would have thought the lesson would have been learnt from the first round of prime icon sbcs.

    But let’s face it, by that point there’s a lot of players rivalling icons anyway. And a fraction of the cost

    No, if you’re running out of time, buy points.

    No chance they will change that.

    Maybe they did it to avoid situations like Matthaus Prime SBC on Fifa 18. By the end of the game he was ridiculously overpriced in comparison to other icon SBCs.

    Just a thought.

    This would only be a problem if they re release him with lower requirements. But they won't.

    You don’t know that. They had a real TOTS blowout last year. I could see them re-releasing all icon SBC in the end game to combat a crash.

    Again I don’t know that it’s just my thoughts

    It's EA, they can't even handle normal Prime icon sbcs, this would be too hard and complicated for them.

    Who the hell wants them all releasing at the end of TOTS? Game is dead long before that normally. :lol:

    I don't think so since they changed it for RVN as well. :)

    I'm hoping your right, but if you look at one of the in game banners on ultimate team which was added at the same time as the Seedorf moments SBC went live it says a new prime icon moments SBC is available for a limited time. Unless they're talking about the loan version?

    Why was there a timer in the first place? Must have been a logic to it?

    @EA_Andy

    Can you confirm that the timer is taken of the moment sbcs for the once we got and for future ones?
