    It’s not a disgrace :joy:

    It’s just luck, or bad luck

    Who did you expect R9 and Pele?

    Lineker is actually decent - plus he was free.

    The odds of getting a useable player in either of those packs is slim so I wouldn’t say it was a spit in the face, more so a likely but unfortunate probability.

    I bet you opened it either right after or around the time when everyone opens packs. I did mine and packed base Gullit. Try opening it at times when people are hardly on. Works for me

    It's with like every player in this game: Yotuber/Pro said he's not meta. So people refuse to even try.

    You're not wrong!

    I think the problem is not the meta, but of the player can he keep the same performance 20 games in lol.

    I’ve been venting my frustration with my Base Puyol right back pull on here since yesterday but I gave him a few games at cb today and he has been very good. Guess who scored the winning header in my last game?! Puyol and what a thumping header it was.

    Surprised me so far so give them a go and they might come good for you and surprise you.

    It’s not even bad luck it’s just the probabilities being right again. 99% of people will get a card they didn’t want from these packs.

    When taking the mid icon pack I looked at them and decided I’d be happy with 50 of them.

    Most will be higher rated so it didn’t give me a 50/50 chance, but it made it make sense to do.

    I can whinge with the best of them on here but OP, that is far from a spit in the face.

    They are free and they are far from the worst ones.
    Lineker is a quality striker and Rui can work in the right team.

    Absolutely not the best ones but surely by now you don’t expect that on this game

    Believe it or not I've been playing rui costa as a CM next to Veron and Headliner Savic, behind Figo and RB Mbappe and rui scores loads from midfield. Carries the ball really well up the field and gets lots of goals from balls defended to the edge of the box.

    Obviously he's no Puskas but just use them and have fun.

    Rui Costa is decent.

    I got Trezeguet, Nakata, Barnes and Socrates in base, and while Socrates is a somewhat decent pull, all of them were considerably less than the pack itself. I also got the slow Vidic (mid) in the base/mid one which is worth about 200k less than the SBC itself.

    Still, no dupes is a positive but I'm sure that awaits me if I do another one down the road.

    So yeah, you've got a fair bit to go before you beat my pack luck.

    I might get a Rui Costa soon. not that bad. it's not Gullit, but one of the most usable icons out there

    1st base/mid = base Rush
    Mid/prime swaps = Riquelme
    2nd base/mid = base Giggs

    Cool stuff

    I would never do a Base or Mid Icon pack. They are so expensive and it would take me weeks to get those coins back. I like to know what I’m getting or at least know that I’m getting a useable card. Quite a few of those Base icons are ones I’d never use. I’d rather hang onto the coins for an SBC for a player I want.

    Mid Veron for me from the swaps base/mid pack. Not bad I suppose, gives a strong link to Messi at least.
