i have bad news


EA will most likely require only one Icon and then multiple 88/89/90 squads so you do more SBCs to not feel like you got the most from your time invested



kinda like WL where you dont wanna play but since ur already deep you go for G3 at least so you get 2000 points back and avoid the 84 red pick cap




expect R9 with an Icon and 4x89 squads, 3x90, something like that

    Got 4, however only 1 has no real use for me as the other 3 are very usable.

    Still a poor move by ea, first gives us icons with a time limit :/

    Then not require more than one for the truly elite ones. Shame

    Would suit me fine. Only have Nakata, Stoichkov and Baresi. I use Stoichkov and Baresi is useful for when my Ramos gets sent off so EA are welcome to my Nakata.

    Scary thing will be if you need an icon moments card.

    I did 5 base icon sbcs. 87 Socrates was the only one I used. Got seedorf now, he's much better. 85 Rocha went to rvn and 88 mattaus went to petit and 87 lineker went to nedved. Can't remember who went in seedorf lol. Still got nakata and baresi for the next two. I liked the baggie loan, but too expensive imo.

    Hopefully tomorrow they put out a good one. I've got a boat load of 85, 86, 84 cards from the bogo promo (spent 3mil coins on packs].

    Only got 2. Campbell and Nakata. Both I did during promos so they seemed decent value at the time. Both on my bench now. There are so many players on the market better or comparable to the other icons (with exception to Rio and Ballack maybe) All other icons were usable fodder in my opinion.

    I’m always expecting a change in requirement which is why I don’t commit to one method.

    It would surprise me if the elite level icons need a ‘Moments Icon’. In which case your icons will be be needed.

    I wouldn’t stress too much. As soon as Gullit sbc drops, the pros will release their icons for the market and prices will drop. The sbc won’t be anymore than 5m.

    Nedved (staying)
    Ballache (staying)
    Raúl (happy to keep but happy to submit when time is right)
    Butragueño (undecided, only did recently because I'd rather be stuck with him instead of base Nedved if they do go down the 1 icon only route)
    Keane (fodder)
    VDS (fodder, was originally done fir the link to VVD but he makes so many costly mistakes he's rotting in club)
    Rui Costa (fodder)

    Got keane, raul, bareassi, buttwrangler, nedved. nedved is staying with me no matter what. buttwrangler is too new and I need to try him more but will likely stay. Use keane and raul but they could go. bareassi is a complete waste of life.

    Didn’t do any base icons, players were inflated so sold up and rebought for half the price instead.

    Done Rui Costa to throw into Nedved who is in my end game team unless we get a moments Nedved....and Owen a few days ago who ill throw into the first moments SBC I want, hopefully Gerrard

    Didn't do the base SBC. After the moments stunt I've been well wary. I have a few icons ready for sbcs so hopefully i get to use them.

    I’m starting to think this may be the case

    However, I think it would trigger the biggest outrage this game has ever seen. Currently this whole mess is a slap in the face for people who’ve grinded out untradeable rewards, every single day all I see on various platforms is the anger towards this. If they were to go further and only require one icon I think they will have truly crossed the line and people will just give up on the game

    That’s honestly where I am at I did a lot of baby icon sbcs and I have high rateds and I’m not going to ad some **** overpriced icon to my team. But now it looks like the end game ones won’t be released until...well the end of the gAme. Ea seamed so generous at the start of this year with division rewards and affordable flashbacks potm locus etc but literally since toty it has just been a slap to everyone’s face. Legit turns me of from playing... not to mention my team hasn’t changed in a month or two because I’m waiting for these icons. Probably won’t play next year until tots it’s just not worth getting dicked around

    Campbell, Best and 85 Blanc all start for me.

    Baresi and Keane barely make the bench. So if one, two or three are needed I'm happy enough.

    Nothing wrong with Lucas. Prem wise you’ll struggle to get much better for value although I suppose that doesn’t matter with your icons.

    I still like him for the first half. FFS sancho comes on after half time.

    I also have about 1k coins😂. Both they players are pretty solid. I play 4-4-2(2) and they do a great job offensively and defensively, as do the other full back and wide man.

    Highly doubt that


    you are right that they've already shown they will duplicate ratings if needed, so 3x 89 rated squads is possible


    however, i still think you'll need icons in those, it's the quickest way to bump price up.

    i have 8 icons and happy to throw 4 of them in

    Was hoping a big one would’ve dropped by now being able to use a few as fodder to get it done. Doesn’t look like that’ll ever be the case.

    With how EA is handling prime and now MOments icons, I regret doing the following SBCs:

    Figo, Baresi, Nesta, Rui Costa.

    I don’t regret Ballack, Nedved, and Keane.

    I gambled on the base icon sbc and got base Keane and base Seedorf (i deemed these as throwaways but who knows now). Base Seedorf is actually not bad but I already have a crowded at that position.

    If I play FIFA 20, I’m definitely not going to do as much Icon SBC’s.

    i have crespo figo rio and zannetti in my team im happy to keep them in or upgrade them for thier moment cards if the drop .
    but i did do
    nakata
    beresi
    vds to for future sbcs .
    i suppose 3 aint so bad im sure i can find use for them in icon sbcs somewhere but for anyone who has lots ea have litterally screwed everyone again.
    dropped base sbc so everyone does a couple and think the big boys are coming .
    then drop icon moments and change the multiple icon requirements for more squads.
    they are unbelievable this yr its like they are actually against thier own community and consumers

    I have run costa, keane, Baresi, nakata and baby lampard. Keane is the only one that is usable and because his spot needs a strong link to Toty VVD I’m just using 85 Fabinho.

    Lucas was a good card in october......
