The latest Title Update for FIFA 20 is now available on PC and includes the changes listed here.

Am I the only one who is going to pick the random base icon FUT swap?

None of the individual FUT Swap icons appeal to me, at least with the base one you have a chance of packing the following:

Eusébio, Pelé, Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona, Viera, Ronaldinho, Drogba, Del Piero, Gullit, Garrincha, Kaka, Best, Essien, Butragueño, Sócrates, Matthäus, Blanc, Stoichkov, Henry, Carlos Alberto Torres, Zola, Desailly, Ferdinand, Seedorf, Shevchenko, Ballack, Marco van Basten, Nedvěd, Zambrotta, Hernández, Barnes, Maldini, Fernando Hierro Ruiz, Ronald Koeman

Rivaldo, Pirlo, Cannavaro, Sánchez, Baggio, Campbell, Crespo, Wright, Rush, Hagi, Larsson, Gerrard, Roberto Carlos, Gattuso, Kluivert, Bergkamp, Lampard, Frank Rijkaard, Alessandro Nesta, Jay-Jay Okocha, Gary Lineker, Raúl González Blanco, David Trezeguet etc are the bad ones.

Even if I get a bad icon, its the chance of getting a good one - none of the icon swaps would make it into my team

    Im also going for the base pack, nothing you can actually go wrong with considering theres an even number of decent to bad, and the bads are already in the swap picks

    If none interest you and you have the cards, it's worth a spin. Not worth grinding towards though for casuals.

    probably, but seeing as none of the swaps interest me its worth rolling the dice.

    I mean if it wasn't hours of grinding sure, but if I've worked hard for the tokens, I'm not going to gamble them on getting a base Lehmann

    Write a list of the bad icons and you realise how unlikely youbare to pull a big one.

    But fortune favours the brave. Good luck.

    I got baby Eusabio from the 1st icon SBC last year and he was in my team til the end and scored over 1000 goals... miss that guy

    Unless there's not a single player in swaps that would improve your team, it's a bad idea.
    Although the numbers between good and bad base icons might be equal, the odds are certainly not

    Problem being you could get schmeichel from base pack so wasted loads of tokens. I know you could get a great one and it's a gamble but some gambles just ain't worth it. Like spending fp's :D

    Base icon pack or Gerrard for me, think I’ll go Gerrard though, H/H work rates, surprised people ain’t jumping on him considering sissoko is so OP, Gerrard is bascially sissoko on roids

    So prime Zanetti wouldn’t play for you? Would love to know who you’re using at RB.

    Walker. He is the only one I was really considering - strong link to Messi and Scream Otamendi who is elite tier, but used his LB card and didn't really think much of it.

    I play a 4-2-3-1, everyone on full chem apart from Promes who is on 7

    Neymar
    Depay - Messi - Promes
    Red Wijnaldum - OTW De Jong
    Telles - CB Carlos Alberto - Scream Otamendi - Walker

    Butragueño could definitely improve my team over Depay or Promes but I am saving up for CR7 in one of those spots. The problem with Butrageuno is that he is so weak and small. I need someone stronger. Heard bad reviews about Drogba.

    18-3 in the WL so something is going right for me at least B)
