Icon roulette is great fun

Did my first ever icon pack on Fifa last night after 5 long years. Had good success getting fodder with 80+ pick so thought what the hell. I will be ready for the Mid icon from swaps in a day or two so thought I would give it a whirl.
Going through each smaller nation and checking the club was a great feeling, ticking off Larsson and Litmanen etc until I only had Brazil, Netherlands, France and Germany left.
Very happy with 91 Matthaus from first ever icon pack. Covers for the disappointment the Mid icon pack will inevitably bring.

    It is fun if you get a good pull. The worst is when you have only good nations left, and you pull someone like Van Nistelrooy or Rivaldo.

    That’s what I was waiting for. The tension is a fun though

    A sense a little sarcasm Chewbaccary. Better luck next time friend. 😉

    Super fun when you click through and get a duplicate 86 Hierro straight away or check Finland third and get smacked by an 88 Litmanen, or when you get an 87 Okocha when you already have the 85. Super fun.

    So. Much. Fun. I can't believe how rewarding it feels.

    @Chewbaccary

    If it makes you feel better I did the base/mid with some fodder I had

    iT cOsT mE nOtHiNg SiNcE i UsEd UnTrAdEaBlEs :D:D:D:D:D

    Got 86 Keane, literally dumping him in the first SBC I see, not even an icon one, might use him for Prime Kaka

    Gambling is fun when you win, sucks when you lose. House always wins, meaning that its never profitable in long run. With the coins you spend in fodder you could get the icons you want from market

    What’s that got to do with going through your club and checking off nations????

    I guess you basically send the icon straight to the club without looking, then search through nation by nation to see what you got?

    It’s all luck. I have played 1000 games this year did a lot of SBC’s and most of the time I have the worse luck imaginable. Except for 3 packs.
    -1st pack of the year I opened was Neymar.
    -First Icon pack Base Cantona.
    - last icon pack Mid Vieira.

    No other walkouts worth mentioning, they are amazing cards.. but if I had opened those 3 a fraction of a second later I would have nothing to show from my packs. Luck guys it’s all down to luck.

    Just to clear up what this is...
    Just an alternative way to discover your icon (and probable disappointment) in a unique way. Open the pack and send to club without looking. Then search for your club players and select icon and start at the end of the alphabet and work through the nationalities that have an icon. So you get to Ukraine quickly and breath a sigh of relief if it’s not Shevchenko, Russia, not Yashin phew etc. Save Brazil, France and Dutch till the end...

    I’m not sure I want to drag out my agony for that long to be honest :D

    No offense but seriously I don't understand why doing this. I don't enjoy opening packs whatsoever.

    This is a thing? The delay is so bad people don't want to play and waste time messing about on menus instead? May as well switch it off and do something better with your time completely.

    Been doing it with some friends. Great fun but as others have said. Packing a hagi is still just as disappointing

    I did this for my mid/base, originally was intending to stream it the normal way for my mates but forgot I had 150 packs stacked so couldn't open it on console.

    Opened it on the app then switched to console, cycled through from worst nations to best and got down to Brazil, France and Holland as my last 3.

    Opened Brazil and got mid Kaka, was a little disappointed at that stage given the players I could have got but he is actually very good this year with a unique player model.

    Did it with the base icon sbc a while ago. My friend opened it on my phone, send to club and I started searching at Sweden. Larsson popped up and the fun was gone :D
