    @EA_Andy yep pitch notes to explain. Looking at the latest stock prices dropping and selling shares to VC's looks like you need the money to clean us out.

    Seriously just bloody include them in the game from the start. Why do you guys make things so complicated when it doesn't need to be?

    annoying really wouldnt be as bad if there were no pims.
    i wont be getting any middle or baby icons at all just save till primes are out but even then they will b mega inflated and i wont have them long b4 the better pims come out lol , stupid and a liberty imo but we know its all about the money.

    anyone thinking they are going to do something good with them is deluded, they will market it as a good idea but it will be a skank as usual

    On Twitter I saw someone mentioning a new icon system. Obviously we don’t know for sure what they have planned till the pitch notes come out but if I had to guess I think it will be some sort of upgrade system

    If you have the baby version you have objectives to get to the mid and then objectives to get mid to prime, these might come as monthly objectives to stop people smashing thru them quickly.

    Then the prime will be needed to get the prime icon moments in sbcs

    I might be way off but it’s a guess


    this will come.
    You will get better icons with higher season on the season pass.
    but this system is **** because you always have to pay for a better version via SBC.
    Its all about losing coins from customers by EA

    Also, it wouldn’t work because base and mid icons for these players would go extinct instantly as soon as the sbc’s or objectives drop.

    yeah i know. Maybe they will release the primes on the market, too.
    I dont know. I cant imagine, that EA will have a good solution for this

    Definitely looking forward to the Pitch Notes, and the **** it will undeniably cause among forumers.

    I would have fancied a progression system where higher icon tiers are gradually introduced as time goes on. So for instance: the first four WLs only Base icons are available, then the mids unlock. And after eight consecutive weeks primes become available. This would tone down the p2w a little bit and prolong the longevity of gold squads being relevant.

    EA is testing waters and wants to see community response.

    It's your time to complain guys. We can't go 3rd year in a row having R9 Prime in April

    I can see the logic in delaying the release of the very best primes.
    There is no logic in delaying the release of the duff ones

    What’s the logic brosef? All it will do is make icons even more expensive.

    Delaying the better cards until they are less op in comparison to what most people are using.

    I’m not happy with this though, it certainly doesn’t help you or I but will the more casual peeps.

    Another logical (and more likely) explanation is that they want to sell more packs at a random time. But once again, the likes of prime Bobby Moore etc, are not going to make much difference on this side either.
