The party starts on Friday. Who guys do you want to pick up from the Set I? As a Real Madrid fanboy I will go with Hagi or Butragueno.

I really hope the objectives to earn tokens will not be crazy difficult such as score 20 headers in FUT Champions using Serie A players.

    Seeing as I used Butra and loved him I kinda want to get him but also seeing that Drogba... or even Zanetti but I can imagine he'll be the hardest to work towards being a prime.

    Rio would be a nice rock at the back to have and make chem easy enough to hybrid off

    The complaints about broken headers are gonna increase tenfold once people start getting their hands on these Drogbas and realising even he can't score them :D

    Butra or Kluivert because the objectives will be painful and Iam not wasting coins on Sbcs so they are the realistic ones. May get Pirlo or Rio but they will need more so probably not.

    This. I’ll get a defender if I do anything. Set and forget. Too many fun attackers to be committed this early to one mid-icon

    I am a little bit worried that Prime Hagi may require few more tokens. Butra looks amazing to be fair. He lacks 4* skill moves, but on the other hand he has 5* weak foot and ice-skating movement, which would be extremely helpful.

    None are great. Having used the drogba I know I don't want him. Can see some expensive sbcs coming out for the tokens as well.

    Drogba unless tokens are ridiculous, in which case I’d like to get Ballack or maybe Carlos if they’re easier

    I used Hagi for the first time ever in Draft, quite liked him so probably will go for him. If it’s too ridiculous I’ll go for Pirlo and if all together it’s going to be a pain I’ll say **** it.

    Packed Reus untradable so might go with Mattheus

    All depends how easy it is to achieve the tokens. If there are some ridiculous objectives I just won’t bother.

    I’ve narrowed it down to Drogba, Ballack, Ferdinand and Zanetti. Will decide nearer the time.

    Drogba does look like an absolute beast but heard he’s had some v bad reviews.

    Well you might be waiting a while because Matthaus is not part of this batch.

    I'll probably go Gerrard just because you'll never have to build the team around him. Selecting any striker means you're kind of locked in to whatever playstyle suits them, but with Gerrard you can just slot him in at any position from CF to CDM and he'll be fine.

    Has it been confirmed that some tokens will be locked behind SBCs or is that just people guessing? I assumed from the patch notes that they would be through objectives.

    I think it has been mentioned in the EA Pitch Notes, which I have linked in the opening post.

    If I would not pick up one of the former Real Madrid players I would definitely Stevie. His 89 item looks amazing and can be a true game changer when you will obtain him in later November/early December.

    Read over it again and still cant see anywhere it says receive tokens from SBCs, could have just looked over it though.

    Zanetti

    If heading doesn't get buffed he's an endgame RB for me.

    my prediction for objectives:
    Score 50 goals with headers from a player with physical under 70
    Score 70 from crosses assisted by a player with less than 70 pace
    Play all your squad battles matches in October
    Win 20 rivals games using at least 5 players from the polish league
    Play 400 friendlies games
    Use 250 squad fitness cards
    Score 25 goals from corners in rivals with a spanish player not in la liga
    Win 50 games by 2 goals or more in rivals where you have at least 2 french, 1 english, 1 italian, 1 german and 3 USA players
    Score 50 goals with a storyline player
    Score 75 chip shots with a bronze player
    Win 175 games with a silver team

    Could someone copy the text from the pitch notes (maybe in spoilers), for some reason my browser displays only the terribly translated german version ...

    Anything like the Gold objectives & I’ll be lucky to get one of the lowest rated icons. Way too much grief

    Him or Gerrard for me I think. Definitely not one of the attackers.

    Hagi, keane and Zanetti are good as well. Hope these objectives aren’t too crazy

    Yea Gerrard/Rio/Zanetti are my top options depending on how hard they are to earn.

    Those are the only ones I consider using for a long time myself. I hate spending a lot on defenders personally and Rio just looks like a better Varane. Good All around mids are tough to come by too though and Gerrard looks very good
