    Just as a question that’s probably been asked a thousand times....which I’ve clearly missed....

    ...,,putting to one side what everyone’s team looks like, as cards in their own right, what is the best icon swap card available

    Baby Zidane
    Prime Garrincha
    PIM Alberto
    PIM Cannavaro

    Just spent an hour or two working on the final icon swap token towards Bergkamp and when I finished it, I noticed that I had one token too many. I had worked for it for nothing 😩

    No. You can use only icon swap with number 3 right now.

    You need to make sure you dont have any commebol players on your bench.

    Option #2 (w/ Cannavaro) https://www.futbin.com/20/squad/15827629

    Option #3 (w/ Capita) https://www.futbin.com/20/squad/15827693

    or should I go for something else altogether?

    Don't want to start a new thread, but you guys could help me with a dilemma?


    I would like to buy Butragueno, Moments version more than the Prime one. I've looked in futbin to check both versions and saw that the Prime version has some "Specialties" like speedster, dribble, etc while the Moments version doesn't have any.

    Moments version have better stats but those specialties are missing and sometimes, traits and specialties actually matter in the game.

    Does anyone tried both versions and can tell me if there is a big difference between them?


    Cheers!

    I checked and both versions have Finesse Shot. The other stuff isn't important as it is CPU AI only for that player.

    Anyone else decided to just take Litmanen and Trezeguet to throw in the Miltao SBC? Don’t see the point in grinding another 12 tedious squad battles for a Kaka that is average

    Apologies if asked already, but is there normally a final Icon swaps after season 3 finishes that you can use up unwanted tokens from the previous 3 seasons?

    I have a few spare from season 1 I didn't use and trying to figure out how to spend my season 3 now - could take Puyol but would mean a few leftover tokens

    Thanks

    Nope, after end of season 3 all tokens will be useless.

    I’ve finally got the 24 tokens. Can anyone advise me on the best option to improve my team?

    This is probably my best current lineup:

    tosQY99.jpg

    With these being probably my best bench players:

    I feel an icon striker would be the best option to allow me to use Salah without losing chem. I have quite a few decent midfielders including Essien so don’t think it’s worth using the tokens for one of them. Possibly I could get a CB but a striker would probably be more use.

    I was thinking maybe Bergkamp or Dalglish + Trezeguet or Maldini + the icon pack

    Any advice?

    Bergkamp is clinical. He is not strong but when he has enough space he can give you a lot of goals. I use him with engine chemistry.

    Bergkamp,is actually very cheap on the market so,not sure he is worth it. Leaning toward Maldini and the icon pack as none of the strikers really grab me. Anyone got any other suggestions?

    Sorry if this has been asked before. So we have 3 days left till the end of season 6 and the current SBC icon swaps, will there be an icon swaps refresh? And will I be able to use the tokens I currently have for the next season?

    No new refresh from what we've heard. No new season.

    You can use tokens from other seasons on the current season.

    got 21 tokens and haven't picked anything so far... need to make up my mind before they expire...

    is Carlos Alberto my best choice?

    Does anyone know if I will be able to use my unused icon swaps 3? I only joined FUT at the end of season 5, so didn’t get in to swaps until part way through season 6... I have 11 and didn’t use them before the end of the season... I didn’t realise they became redundant...
    Cheers
