Anyone think it’s worth it? I’d be a little annoyed had I used icon swaps for the base pack and then this dropped.

    Based on all the videos I watched, you have about a 65% chance of getting an icon valued at 600k+

    I did two. First pull was Best, who is around 1.1 mil, 2nd was Bobby Moore valued at around 320k.
    So, my gamble paid off.
    Good luck if u do it.🤞

    YES it is worth it.

    Pulled George Best who is going for 1M. Up 600k on the investment.

    If you look around youtube most people are getting great players from this.

    Yes It's repeatable. I'd do 2 if u have the extra coins, amd hope you hit one at least one of them.

    I’d just use or save the 500k towards someone you know is good.

    650k on Xbox right now... People are mad to do this unless you're bored and have coins to spare... At 450k it'd be doable.

    Rather save players for Futmas and other SBCs. David Villa looks more better option than getting Moore or Nakata.

    Exactly... many of the youtubers have opened many many packs and only show you the good ones. I did 3 base icon packs and got laudrop, lampard, ruud van nistelrooy. be warned

    Did Villa because the market is way up right now. Couldn’t afford to do the 87 rated squads. Trying to grind Serie A and EPL storyline players so haven’t used him yet but looks promising. Should pair well with flashback Mata.

    I got 85 Laudrup LOL. Tbh he's bossing the midfield at CM so can't complain too much, but still rubbish. It cost me 300k as I had high rated rubbish untradeables.

    65%!!! No chance I'm afraid.

    Well done on Best though, I think it may be skewing your statistics, that, along with YTers selectively showing their amazing pulls, but keeping the crap ones on the low.

    Buy something you can sell. Why anyone would tie up coins in an sbc like this is beyond me.

    The thing about Best is he is around 900k already so another 300k and you could of tried and sold him anytime.

    Exactly!
    3 weeks of champs and rivals and you’ve got that just from coins, without opening any packs, and you can sell him...
    and the SBC still won’t be expired...

    I’ve had 2 mates do this, one got Lehmann one got Overmars. The one who got Lehmann has quit the game!

    Has anyone on here got a duplicate yet?That’s what’s stopping me from trying, far too risky for me. I can still remember the pain of having to quick sell Auba last year when he was worth £300k

    EA should implement something to stop this happening with something as expensive as this is. You could end up spending 650k with no reward, that is just plain wrong.

    Sorry to hear that bud, it's important that you post this, as often we only read about good pulls, and this creates the wrong impression, as is clearly the case with a couple of posts in this thread.

    watched all the YTers and tbh that's what convinced me, but hey ho learnt lesson the hard way I suppose

    Did complete the Villa card tho and that is really worth the coins IMO

    I did it twice since I had a lot of the players sitting in my club by buying them at super low points for later on. The first one I got Pires, second one I got Carlos Alberto. Not sure I will be doing it again though, too expensive and I literally only broke even with the two pulls. Carlos Alberto CB is some player though.

    I tried mentioning something like this, but then someone said I was just looking for a safety net lol. Anyway it does kinda ruin your experience. I pulled laudrup, lampard and van nistelrooy. Sure its a game, but its a game many people put soo many hours into. It should remain fun, and yeah I feel for your friend I kinda feel like ❤️❤️❤️❤️ too.

    Only one I'd really want is Eusebio as that version is still quality. Even the likes of gullit, Vieira, r9 aren't that great in game and are more than noticeably weaker than mid or prime versions.

    At 600k ish its awful value.
