    It will come full circle. It’s not like this is the first time it’s basically the theme of fut 19 they always change everything up so that the least amount of people can profit. They have lost my business after this. At some poitnt it will effect their sales. The think that the rate which fut is growing will continue but like anything once it reaches the maximum amount of people it’s their ability to keep customers that will make them money. It’s like they have no foursight

    i think they don't care ... Thats just the way how managing boards make their strategys these days ... Only the shortterm profit counts ... minimize costs, decrease quality, squeeze out customers as much as possible ... thats how you maximize profit shorterm ... they don't care about the company in 5 or 10 years , by then they are long gone, with all profitsharings they collected ...

    Yea, that's a good point. It's all about "what are you doing for me right now". If you are a CEO and you are making solid changes for the longevity of the company, but your immediate profit suffers, you are going to be out on your a** in a heartbeat.

    thats also why a lot of companys are outsourcing so many services to low-wage-countrys despite the quality suffers a lot e.g. when for EA somebody creates the content that boviously doesn't have a clue about the game and soccer at all... or customer support ... i mean thats really areas where you can destroy your reputation ... they don't care, if the company is big in the market already and they have a cash cow like FIFA.
    For a managing board that usually gets a high bonus depending on the profit its in this situation just more profitable to increase the profit shorttime with decreasing costs instead of increasing profit due to increasing the turnover (which usually takes more time)...

    Well enough offtopic now... but mabye those are thoughts that could explain (and help to understand) , why they don't care

    Fudge!! Wasn't really expecting matthaus, have 7/12 parts done on socrates could have held out for matthaus

    You can't go wrong with Socrates. He's amazing.

    Need about another 800k to finish him could be another month unless I really grind it out or I pack something decent. Would he early as an attacking cm??

    For sure, he fits in every position from midfield to attack. I used him at CAM and CM (when i sub POTM Reus in).

    I still think the biggest icons where the sbc costs 3 mil plus will need more than 1 icon

    Surely right unless they're gonna just ask for 20 squads :D

    Who would have thought...

    Also confirmed EA screwed us over with earlier icon sbc/ base icon sbc. Could have used a second icon in their but 88 twice and 84 twice instead.

    Called this a month ago on RVN release, when they used two 85 teams. @EA_Andy - I’m not having a go at you directly, but what EA have done over icons this year, with the PIM and now only requiring 1 icon on 2 million plus SBCs is nothing short of disgusting. There’s been multiple posts about how unhappy people are over icons, but you still continue to push the player base.

    EA have screwed over it’s community time and time again this year. This Sbc should have been two icons at least. You allowed people do rinse coins on the base icon sbc, then gave them two fingers. Lothar was 3 icons last year. Shambles of a company, which at least matches the state of this game.

    It honestly makes me want to bin this game all together. It’s scummy behaviour to give us all those **** icon sbc’s and base icon sbc’s and then only one icon requirement for the big icons.

    Ahhhh ok, I appreciate you breaking it down. I didn't understand why people were upset there was only 1 icon requirement. I'm guessing last year, the top icon players required multiple icons, so investors saved their icons this year in order to sell them when the final icon SBCs were released.
    Jep exactly... people did nakata, Baresi etc, base icon sbc to turn in for the big icons...I have 9.

    Nakata and Sol just sitting on my bench twiddling there thumbs. At least I got to use them unlike the masses of people who completed the base Icon SBC

    + base Keane

    You poor soul. I thought I had it bad with 6.

    I steered well away from base icons. I just didnt get why spend 300-400k on a random icon. some were goin for close to that price at the time and they were tradable.

    After they released Future Stars an saw the stats, got me thinking only top tier icons are goin to be worth getting.

    Then the bomb.Optimus icons. 2-6mill price tag. No icon for me this year then..This time last yr i had Zanetti, Crespo and Petit.

    Looking at way this is heading I reckon if they do release the big ones (gullit, dinho, Pelé, Ronaldo, Vieira etc) there still only going to need one icon but I think it’s going to be a prime icon moments to make it dearer instead of just a standard icon. Maybe even a standard icon aswell as prime moments icon and then the same squads as matthius. Can definitely see prime icon moments card being needed though.

    All trading my friend. The only fifa points I spent were at the beginning and it was £15!
    I have close to 19m coins transfer profit and when I say 1.4m coins that obviously means that it did cost me untradeables and an icon. The 1.4 is mainly due to me starting with 2.1m and finishing with 700k.

    It helps when you keep your high rated IF....

    Socrates is a game changer, carried me to div 1 for the first time this year, and I'm not even very good, gold 1 / elite 3 player

    I have looked through quite a lot and have decided on basic. The small upgrades put him in the high 90’s for lots of key stats.

    ****, I got all the way to 83 squad before I realized they want totw players in 87, 88s, and 89 squad... that basically makes them all 90 squads unless your buying 88+ informs... already put my last icon (that i dont use) in. Got too exicited when i saw it... oh well, gonna take weeks to do this one. 90 nif are gonna skyrocket considering how bad the pack weight has been.

    can get Susa IF with this months tokens, that will be a big help

    Finally got him after spending hours figuring out how to use all the SBC fodder I’ve been collecting.
    I’ve said goodbye to these untradeables and saved a fortune in the process:
    Prime Nakata
    89 Falcao
    NIF Suarez
    FB Casillas
    RTTF SMS (What a waste of money)
    NIF Godin
    89 Howard
    And various other I can’t remember 😆

    He is immense and well worth it.

    Good looking out! I'm almost done. Still got 2x88 and one more 84. Was thinking of finishing it on the next promo when prices drop again. So far I've got about 600k in it. Had a bunch of 84+ cards i'd been saving since the bogo promo.

    Matthaus is fantastic - did his 10 game loan. I have him taking corners, so far 3g in 5 corners. Pinpoint service.

    İn the few games I had the privilege of using him, his passing İMMEDİATELY stood out. This was one of the cards I was waiting for this year (and not his normal now meh looking prime) and its gonna be worth every coin. Still yet to catch a glimpse of the glorious banner on the stands however

    Yeah I played this pass through to werner on the counter, Matthaus was on the left side and Werner on the right side making an inwards run I didn’t think I would make it but he played a really hard half high through ball that covered like a third of the pitch and made it through. I was in disbelief. 😂
