    1 baby Maldini from a mini Prime players pack. It was an League SBC of some sort.

    I have packed around 8900 different players and only 1 has been a ICON.

    Only the free 4 icons pack that EA gave to everyone in january.
    Okay, that doesn't count.

    Then 0 for me.

    Is it even possible to pack an icon in FIFA 18 nowadays?

    Very rare, only when someone uses one in a SBC will the it need to be replaced through a pack.

    This cant be right? So no one can pack an Icon unless someone discards/submits one? There shouldnt be a max quota that EA decides there cannot be any more available after its reached. It's not like capacity in a club.

    Can't be right. Though one of the 2 Icons I've got so far came from an Icon SBC's gold pack.

    It's pack weight lads. For every 4000 75's and 3500 76's and so on...... there are 2 85's and 1 86 released from packs. Or something like that.

    We all then discard or submit low rated players in upgrade SBC's. These are then replaced in packs by other low rated cards like 75's and 76's as there are already an over weighted number of higher rated cards still in the economy.

    If EA didn't do it like this we would eventually all have all the highest rated cards. The easiest way to see it is if you track the player cards you get after summer or winter transfers are released. Because they are coming in to an economy already containing so many players the pack weight floods the market with them to get the ratio right.

    Remember Harit from Schalke when he changed nationality from France to Morocco. Anyone who used him would have used the France version for better chemistry links, so the Morocco version got discarded non stop....... and came back in packs non stop

    While the size of the FUT economy is growing this works fine, problem is when all the lemmings leave to play the new version every year they leave their clubs full of high rated players which don't get traded or used for the harder ICON SBC's, but they still count towards the pack weight. If EA based pack weight on accounts active in the last three months it would completely fix this problem.

    There are also accounts that have large numbers of the one player on their trade pile for "investing /price fixing" that are no longer used that mean that player becomes extinct as the economy thinks they are available when they are actually stuck. There are a number of 83 rated players like Douglas Costa, Juan Cuadrado and Nicolas Gaitan that were rarely sighted because of this.

    I posted on the 19 PC forum and got some people to log into 18 to sell or discard some players, the next few weeks was amazing pack luck.
