    None. All of these will be cheap to buy in the market anyway, while the good ones will be expensive. Better off either trading to get the better ones or just play for fun without bothering with tedious swap objectives.

    I actually think useable base and mid icons Will be more expensive this year. If you dont have to grind endlessly it might be a good idea to go for 1 or a few of these icons.

    Agree that most usable icons will be more expensive. That’s kind of my point. These only being available in the market could potentially make prices skyrocket or some players extinct. That’s the problem with only some icons available in swaps and none in sbcs.

    Wouldn’t time be better spent building the coin fortune you’ll need to get prime/pim Drogba instead?

    Lol at people thinking they'll actually get one. The requirements are going to be ridiculous. It'll probably require you to build various teams, play draining modes like Squad battles, it won't be worth it.

    Guess I am going to go for Rio, Pirlo, Sanchez, or Gerrard.....depends on how many tokens it takes and what the requirements are (crazy requirements anticipated).

    And thats not a bad thing for casual players who just want to play the game are now geting rewarding in objectives for player tokens to get icons to me this is an amazing idea

    I like it. There is plenty of time to complete them - won't feel too overwhelming if I have 3 months to score 50 goals with a Saudi lol.

    Waiting for the meta but likely Zanetti or drogba.

    Whoever you pick, you will have for the whole game with no icons sbcs

    Considering we'll never be able to use them in an SBC I'll probably go for someone I can use for most of the year like Zanetti.

    You can't get them regardless, only one version of each Icon will be available in the entirely of the Icon Swaps promo

    So.... this will be the only drogba available this year without actually packing him or buying him off the market?

    Basically, this gives pay 2 win an even bigger advantage? At least with the sbcs you could take your time and eventually complete a eusebio. But now, we will have to save coins? Hmm... untradeables are going to have a lot less value with this system.

    Yes, this is the first FIFA since Icons have been around where the only way to get the best version for most of them will be through packs/purchase.

    So lame... the most fun I had last year was stacking untradeables, spamming league sbcs, and completing icons... the gameplay just isn't good enough to keep me engaged for a whole season. Will have to see how ea compensate this perceived issue.

    Objectives are fun and all, but can be a bit obnoxious at times.
