    Well, not facing PIM Zidane and PIM R9 on the first couple of months it's great news. I'm loving this <3

    Wonder what their reasoning behind it is, god awful decision and its most likely financially driven. Majority of the community don’t want this but when have EA ever gave a rats **** about us?

    Would imagine it goes back to the fact the cards are too good for the beginning of Fifa?

    Know a lot of you are interested in this. We're going to have a pitch notes article on this to explain more

    I'm not a fan, but apparently it's a good system ... I'm waiting for the Pitch Notes before giving a final opinion.

    Any ETA on the Pitch Notes? Can only imagine the whole community is very interested to hear about the plans. :)
  • Either way, EA should be on top of this before it get's put out in the world by guys like Chuboi...How hard is it to have this information ready 2 weeks before release.

    I don't mind as long as we have some sort of roadmap or idea of when things are going to get released.

    If they hide them away just to realise them in Febuary I will be pissed.

    Maybe they'll rquire the baby/mids for prime sbc's then require a prime version for the PIM sbc.

    I’m optimistically hoping it’ll be Primes gradually(quickly) released by SBC, and the PIM is only accessible by completing challenges with the Prime

    But I’m probably dreaming

    Was thinking something along the lines of this earlier when I saw that tweet! IMO this is the only way they can go without royally p*ssing off the entire community! I would welcome completing challenges towards upgrading them! Could be something as simple as score x amount of goals or assists or something more creative like ‘win x number of games with the nationalitity of that icon’ or something based on the teams they played for in the past!

    This would be very very cool and would 100% get behind this as well. Something to grind for, kinda lika a road to glory :)

    Good imo. Certain prime icons are too op to be able to buy at the start of the game. These being eusebio, Gullit, R9, Vieira. If you got these in November compared to nif gold cards the advantage was beyond ridiculous

    This is BS, I will explain and was one of the reasons I gave up playing Fifa 19.

    When the game is released its almost October. We all know the game peaks for next few months and slowly dies down a bit after Xmas before picking up again for toty. Once toty finishes it's on to the next fifa every time, so to summerise the life span is not great, I would say 8 months at best.

    The fact that christmas will come around and we will probably have at best 8 primes out of 60/70 icons released is ridiculous. I don't see how anybody can be happy waiting until march/April for the likes of gullit to be released. Why grind for months to have a player that you can use for around 8 weeks when the game is dying.

    I know some people will shoot me for saying this, others will be in the same boat but I loaded up 240k on fifa points so far with the plan to load up a total of 500k. I am stopping at 240k. My plan was to get the primes while they are cheap during first few days. No point in me loading any more when the standard top cards will be outdated in a few weeks/months and baby/mid icons will be decreasing as the primes are released.

    Imo ridicous decision by EA if I knew that I would prob have gave fifa a miss this year

    If the reasoning for loading up all them points was to buy primes early on, I really understand your frustration.

    Really wonder how you guys will sell this one to us now @EA_Andy. We keep asking for ICON sbc's all available from the start and you just give us less.

    I’ll wait for the pitch notes to decide how I feel about it, you never know, it could be a good thing.

    Ok @El_Nino give me an example how it would be a good thing?

    All I see is that baby and midle icons will be even more inflated in price than normal...
