    Just tried Raul 86. 10 games in DIV 3, 14 goals, and 1 assist. While i don't have coins to paid 1KK for a player, best icon i tried so far.

    Did you have problems with his stamina and pace? And In what position and formation did you use him??

    @Cantona84 Go with Cruyff or prime Henry :) I like Henry more as striker than Cruyff.

    Managed to overcome the fresh card OCD and just look at it in terms of profit.

    Not a surprise since I'm amazing

    I was hardly trying to affect the market by what I said.

    Not looking to sell, or buy, I've got one.

    I am going to do an RTG around one Icon this edition. Who would you recommend doing it around?

    The candidates for me so far is Cruyff, Best and Socrates.

    Any other suggestions guys?

    Get Cruyff. 5* 5*, central player with amazing stats. I'm using his prime (yeah, I spent a few pennies) and he won't leave my club till the end of the year.

    @Cantona84
    I'm gonna have to vote in Cruyff on this one as he is a new Icon with a lot of hype around him....
    Best has been around, and Socrates would get boring lol.
    Other candidates perhaps Eusebio or one of the 3 new powerhouse mids, Gerrard Lampard Ballack

    Thanks guys. Any difference between the versions of Cruyff?

    I don’t know when I have the coins for him as I have plenty tied up in investments. I ain’t stressing it though, he will arrive at one point anyway. This year I treat the game almost like a trading game as I don’t enjoy the gameplay. One or two proper icons might change the fun of playing.

    Did anyone use 86 and 88 Vieri cards?? I heard a lot of praise for his 88 version but isnt the 86 better because of stamina and maybe more agile?

    I hear you with the trading part....that's all I'm doing this year: buy, try, flip, repeat...
    As for version, I've tried only the 89 and 91 and really didnt notice much difference. 91 did finish finesse shots slightly better, but these types of things come down to the current level of EAids in the match.

    Havent used the Prime so cant comment

    Haven't tried the other versions, went straight for the prime. So can't help you with the comparison. Comparing their stats, the prime gets quite a big boost in passing and shooting, so he might feel a lot better. Design wise, the card face of the prime looks sublime as well.

    Prices are suddenly more than absurd. Cannot justify buying anything atm.

    They’re ridiculous tbh. Half tempted to sell the icons I have and rebuy when things are sensible.

    This thread and people exploiting it for their own gains :joy:

    Plus loads more buying power after first WL rewards and everyone waited to buy until rewards dropped.

    I do

    - No Icon SBCs, which the idea of kept people not buying and waiting, now that theres nothing they went ham on players

    - some people buying and others seeing it made them buy too

    - wl rewards, fut champs and coin buying means theres a **** ton of coins into the game and no sbc to drain them out

    I feel like I should sell my whole team. Trade and play with cheap squad. PLaying with a cheap squad is not funny at all though.

    Better workrates on the 86 as well. 88 might have a bit better shooting. Loved the 86 card.

    The amount of coins that suddenly dropped into the game yesterday was a joke to be fair. I only played up to rank 3 div rivals and silver 3 in FUT champs and still accumulated about 100k in rewards and coins. Not only that but straight after people will be buying for the WL itself.

    If I put little effort into it I could make gold 3, so you're straight away looking at 100k in rewards without packing anything decent. Then division rivals gives you another 50-100k if you take the tradeable rewards, this is for, once again, not having to be a hardcore player.

    So off the bat you're getting 200k a week being a casual and moderately good FIFA player. That coupled with the lack of icons on the market doesn't bode well until black Friday.

    Hardcore players making elite and getting division 1 and 2 rewards, specifically coin rewards from division rivals will be rolling in it. And now the only players they can get to make a real difference are icons and the boss players can't even get them from monthlies anymore.

    I still dont know 100% the direction of this.

    EA controls the market so there's that but also theres loads of coins into the game

    You have too much influence, can you please start saying that the players I want are awful and should be sold for minimum :lol:
