Base/Mid Icon OR Base Icon + 2 Ultimate Packs

Hi all,

I have 10 swaps to play with and I'm deciding between one of the following 2 options:
1) Base or Mid Icon Pack for 10 swaps
2) Base Icon Pack for 8 swaps and 2 Ultimate Packs for 2 swaps

I'm interested in option 2 only because TOTY cards are around the corner, but I've heard that Ultimate packs are generally very disappointing. I've only got 400K in coins, so it's unlikely that I would be able to afford any of the TOTY players :(

Any suggestions? What would you do in my position?

Thanks

    You will probably get trash either way, so do the base pack and get the ultimates for the extra fodder.

    Most mid icons aren't much better than the base, and many are worse.

    Yes that makes sense. Alright you’ve convinced me - option 2 it is!

    The best route would actually be do all the packs of you are opening now

    85x5, 83x25 and two ultimates

    If you pack something, great, if not you should still have enough fodder to do the base icon upgrade with the fodder

    Assuming you have already done 85+ and 83 packs?

    Yes, I've already opened the 83+ and 85+ packs with the previous 8 icon swaps - nothing great but not too bad either. A few 88s and a few 85s. The highlight was headliner Zaha. He's good but I expected him to feel a lot better than his stats suggest.
