Enough with the random ICON SBCs, give us player ICON SBCs

So sick of this greed. What is the point of spending majority of the budget to get image rights of icons then make them so expensive or extinct and no way to grind for them in game unless you are Bateson or Castro who can spend 10k on fifapoints.

It would be better at this point to get rid of icons all together and use the money to get better servers and hire competent programmers to make better gameplay. Almost March, and we haven't got any top player icon SBCs just the random ones

    I think we should have both individual Icon SBC's and Random Icon SBCs like the ones that were released today.

    At this point in FIFA, with all Base & Mid Icons no longer in Packs, each of their individual Icon SBCs should be available to complete.

    Unfortunately, EA have released hardly any interesting individual Icon SBCs and Icon Swaps 2 is an absolute embarrassment.

    They want you to get rid of all your fodder first so you have to buy the players back to do the SBC's when they finally release them, I doubt we will get any top tier ICON players until TOTS anyway.

    I did 96 R9 in Fifa 18(I think) and I only got a few months out of him, must have been around May.

    Fifa 18 was the end of Icons, we had R9, Gullit Prime SBC's who were reasonable (1.5m). And it all went down hill from there

    Then they introduced Moments and took away SBC's . Added Swaps to "make them more achievable" then this year reduced the selection from about 20 in Swaps 2 to 5 or 6.

    Really feels like they want to phase out Icons completely

    They won’t phase them out. They are making them unobtainable, I would love to play with Cruijff, but it doesn’t look like I’ll get there this year( or last year.) and when I do have the funds to get him he is not good enough anymore.

    Yea, I meant the only way to get them is to keep rolling the dice and spending coins or money. It's a really sad state.

    I much prefer the way Madden use legends

    The problem is why they can't release icon SBC of the top icons is they are too expensive. They can't release a 6.5 mill Prime Cruyff SBC because all those who invested in fodder would make coins and opening packs will have value since fodder would be expensive so they would rather not release anything
