Icons vs Golds

I honestly can’t tell the difference between high end big stat cards and regular golds in this game.

Everyone feels the same, On the up side, I won’t be buying many FP this year as there’s no need to waste coins.

Anyone else feel the same

    For me there is a huge difference, especially on first touch. First touch is horrible for low rated cards while I’ve noticed higher rated cards and the only icon I’ve tried is next level when it comes to first touch and control.

    The better stat players definitely feel better imo

    Yup totally agree, packed des cb and played him next to umtiti. Could not tell the difference if he was there or was replaced by langlet or however you spell his name. If EA want people to buy FP they are going to need to make special cards... Well special. There's a reason why they are icon's. It's a shame they don't really stand out from the crowd.

    I haven't tried a single ICON in this game but I will give you my input when I pack one or when I do a Prime SBC Icon and try him out.

    Seeing him on the pitch gives me nightmares. I get scared making my midfielder/defender approach him because I know he'll put them down easily make them look like bronze players xD

    I sense that you're speaking from experience. I kinda feel bad for those that faced your Gullit now

    Only other card I’ve used that feels significantly better than the usual NIFs people use is CR7.

    91 Pele feels incredible tbh, but so far i've used 91 Cruyff/89/91 Eusebio, 91 Dinho and they all felt worse and played worse than IF Ben Yedder

    It's pretty ridiculous...

    You can just cross the ball to CR7 and he'll put it in easily with his bicycle kick even with outside the box lol that alone makes him unique

    I’m used to it fella and been playing long enough to know. The difference is minimal

    considering a legend in my team, either luis figo for salah (salah goes as my CAM in game) or Petit/Rijkaard prime.

    Any attacker of any size is immediately dispossessed now if a tackle goes in, so the ability to avoid them entirely is key. That is his game. I play him CF in 4411, so the height I reserve for the striker instead.

    Having tried multiple midfielders in my team since release I must say middle Gerrard feels far superior as a all round midfielder that I was looking for in comparison

    One Juve legend I really wana try out and got so happy when EA announced him to be in FUT 19 is none other than PAVEL NEDVĚD. He doesn't seem like he'll require an ICON in his Prime SBC which I really hope I'm right.

    I'm upset that Edgar David is not in this year's FIFA. Hopefully in FUT 20.

    You do understand that Prime SBCs may not even be a thing anymore right?

    They would of said it if it wasn't a thing anymore. I'm 100% positive it's still a thing in FIFA 19. As of the requirements, I have a feeling they're gonna make it more tough. So expect a 90 rated squad requirement instead of just an 89 rated squad. Even more Team of the Week requirements in each squad.

    yes. was lucky for me pulled DDG in a gold upgrade pack, excited and use over few match but he is bad in game or the shooting is just way OP. Long shot and overhead kick from decent ST, DDG cant save any of it.
