Is it worth getting a couple of mid/prime icons in the 88-90 range for future SBCs? Thinking of picking up a couple like 89 klose or 90 Inzaghi.

    Hoping there will finally be some SBCs ....but yeah.... disappointed so far.

    It's just that some of these icons are really cheap now so wondered if worth it to pick up a couple vs sink 1.2 mill + in mid/prime sbc.

    In a different life where we had icon sbcs, it was only the top icons that needed an icon as part of a squad. In theory those 2 players would be useful but I can’t see EA dropping an icon sbc that would require an icon as part of a squad any time soon

    It's a gamble, if we knew they will be needed in the future they wouldn't be as cheap as they are atm.

    Thanks all. Just picked them up for 160k each. It's a gamble and hopefully it pays off. If not, can recover 140k atleast.

    Pretty sure EA commented that they didn't want to go down the route of artificially inflating the prices of the lower icons and wanted them to be accessible, wouldn't surprise me if they went back on it but Id imagine they would stick to the multiple x89 squad format they have done more recently

    That was for Fifa 20. They have said icons might be used for sbc’s this year

    Looking at the quality of the icons made available in swaps 2, totally agree, will be a while before we see any top tier icon sbc. Obviously hoping we're wrong.

    Wake up people. They do not give good icons in swaps, they won’t give good icons as sbcs. They will continue giving average ones and pump even more packs. Why?

    They want to make us all pack addicts. Increasing packs in swaps, continuous icon pack sbcs are for that. They hook people with those and condition them for buying FIFA points to open more packs

    @Sujitsky123 icons quick sell for 140k this year? I genuinely have no idea what they quick sell for this year.

    Picked up 2....89 klose and 90 Inzaghi. Should roughly come to about 140k total discard I think.
