    yea, they need to milk the ones in packs first, then milk TOTS, then the SBCs (when they've made enough money)..

    Although, the wording makes it sound that only players who have already been released as prime SBCs will have the moments SBC. So Gullit et al won't have one.

    Yea the wording is so confusing, does that mean the orginal prime icons won’t be released as SBCs and the Primer version will(as SBCs)?

    Don’t see the point in releasing the selected prime icons as SBCs if all you do now is chuck them into another primer SBC a month later??

    Henry and Matthaus haven't been released as prime have they?

    Then why the hell are they posting only half the story and put themselves in a position of getting properly bashed?! Doesnt make sense, unless they basically and truly do not care.

    I'm curious what you have seen, and I have missed? There was no mention of SBCs in the initial tweet? It specifically said they would be released in packs.

    Have fed back that there's lots of confusion about this.

    More details are due on Friday so hopefully a lot of this will be cleared up. If there's anything I can get before then I'll let you know.

    It would be nice if they increased pack weight probability (for pulling a super prime icon) for users who haven't done an icon sbc - that way those who don't have icons or millions of coins to afford to buy/sbc one could experience a top player. 😉

    i think he means the usual.. we usually get SBCs, and these are coming anyway, isn't to do with the new moment thing.

    Yeah let's punish the players who have grinded the game for months to be able to play with Icons even more than we are already by devalueing the icons they have :|

    The fact people who have done Best's prime card will be able to trade him in for the 94 version is fair play. They didn't have to do that.

    So only the SBC version can be used in another SBC? What's stopping me from buying 93 Henry right now and using that version is a future SBC?

    That’s not it though, it won’t be a straight swap for sure.

    Even if it is say a couple of hundred k, who cares? I'm guessing them majority of people who did the 93 sbc didn't do him for anything more than 1.2m because of untradeables, they would have used him for 500+ games by the time the sbc is out, so add a few hundred on top of that and you get a boosted Best with a dynamic image. Win win situation.

    Was wondering this myself.. What would work out cheaper? Buying a prime Henry now or waiting for the Prime Henry SBC to do that to then wait for the Mega Prime Henry GX card later?

    I've complained a lot about this game but the last 12 hours have been silly

    "We better be able to upgrade our primes to this version, this is an outrage!"

    EA confirms you'll be able to upgrade

    "You won't be able to upgrade for months and it'll be super expensive, this is an outrage!"

    Common sense prevailed.

    Shame the SBC's will probably be after TOTS when nobody cares.

    It's very simple and hopefully people will learn. Do not do SBC's, they are a coin sink.
