    No primes till mid December & No PIMs untill Feb, kills a lot of hype for me & a lot of people tbh, games already over half way through it's cycle by that point.

    What a massive mess.

    Not released except in a fut swap kind of thing, where you'll have to get 50 rival wins whilst scoring with your 4th toe on your left foot with a right footed player.

    Keane's prime is in the set 1, so now I might get him again, middle gigs would be good also for a while, but overall will take some getting used to, a lot of confusion/mess here.

    These are now more unattainable than ever for your average player. You’re telling me a casual is gonna log on daily to perform next to impossible challenges to complete these swaps.

    It's probably about as viable as being able to spend 800k+ on an average icon

    2 changes I like, the lowered discard value and not needing icons for icon sbc's

    So with the swaps. Am I right in thinking you are randomly given one out of the first batch? Or you can choose which icon you want?

    EA lost the Icon plot a long time ago.

    @DougInskip OI believe it'll be like futswap this year.. like for Giggs you may need 7 but for Keane you'll need 10 or something, so it'll be individual but not all will be the same amount.

    My biggest gripe that I think will hurt the casuals is the time limit. I think it will be difficult for a casual to log the time needed to complete these challenges and get the needed swap tokens in the necessary time window.

    With SBCs, a casual could build their club up and complete them over a longer period of time than the new swaps would run for. Not to mention, you got pack value back from the SBCs.

    Maybe these challenges for tokens won’t be ridiculous, but like mentioned in the thread, they likely will be hard and in modes casuals don’t play.

    I don’t think it’s an issue for 99% of the forum community. I am just disappointed in EA pushing the “for the community” load of bs when it’s the exact opposite.

    Ea couldn't possibly make a mistake with Icon releases again they said...…

    EA make a mistake with Icon releases
  • ccooaattssyy

    If an ICON has already been released in an ICON Swaps Release, it will not have any other versions released in a Future ICON Swaps Release.

    Good to know at least, so those currently listed will only appear once. I.e 92 Nesta will never be in the Fut Icon Swap shenanigans.

    Worth noting that base & mid will GO OUT of packs in March it seems. That's a poor move.

    I love the idea of icon swap, that's brilliant. But I don't get why they would remove the base and middle icons from packs. Seems unnecessary.
  • ccooaattssyy

    Sorry to spam, but they really should have reconsidered base & mid icon stats if they planned to do this. 86 Puyol is a prime example - absolutely pointless. Why not boost em up a bit?

    Agree with that. With so many icons being added a refresh of icon stats would have been great
  • It would be so easy for them to use the Madden release schedule of Legends for FUT. A handful of primes available at the start plus their SBC. Release 2 primes every weekend(or more since I believe there are more Icons.) Then after TOTY start releasing the moments every weekend plus their SBCs. Then you can do the upgrades like last year and make the baby and mid versions more abundant in packs so you can make them part of the SBC. This way you have content all year and people can still get the version they want to use for most of the game cycle.

    In general I appreciate the transparency, and the tokens reward those willing to grind/play the game for these cards.

    I could tolerate no PIMs until around January, but primes (most of which are not that good, should be in from day 1).

    Base, mid & prime in packs day 1.
    PIM's around January (tied into TOTY).

    Fut Icon Swaps is a good idea on the face of it.

    From set one of icons, I think Zanetti would be the "best choice"?

    I can already predict what your attempted point is here.

    It’s just nonsense that the arguably the best bit of content (top end icons, pim’s etc) isn’t available for the whole of the game if you wanted it.
