Figured we could share a place to commiserate over the grind of the swaps and then rejoice at the final victory of our goal!

Feel free to just copy paste my first post below with the objectives. Update your post as you make progress! Be sure to post when you've reached your Icon goal (bonus points for a nice little screen shot) :)

Tips for offline play:
-Have a super low rated squad active when you refresh your squads and it will be more likely to give you low rated squads to play
-If you don't care about points, you can just refresh squads as much as u want (even beyond the normal 9 refreshes) and pick off the easy squads.
-apparently you can refresh squads even without playing any if you back in and out of SB or FUT

Thanks to @Futfanatic @WarrenBarton @Götze#19 for some of these tips

    Led to me deleting the game.

    I was running the team below as my primary. Swapped in a few 1st owner Brazilians (subbed in my usual players and only had a RB and Vinicius that I wasn't used to playing with) to complete 2 parts at the same time. Ended up playing a bunch of drop back, no space chumps. Long through balls down the wings to the paciest players (I refuse to play drop back and have my fbs as get forward overlap in a 41212 narrow).

    Decided even if I went to my normal team and didn't bother with swaps.,that my opponents would and I'd experience the usual bs still.

    Grabbed me a Zanetti and really can’t be bothered grinding to get Schmeichel too. Might change my mind but for now I’m good.

    Haha thanks mate. Yeah it was vexing. I couldn't have fun anymore. The game appeared to be more about winning for a the majority than it was playing football. I stick to my principles of playing football and not ball rolling or drag backing 50x a game, it limits your winning ability....

    My la liga squad is so bad... 1 win in 7 games. Ligue 1 was a breeze with that 83 potm though (dude is clinical).

    Hoping to not have to play squad battles... only need 8 swaps for pep. Already have carlos (he's amazing).

    I have all 12 from the first badge and only the squad battles and la liga to complete. But my la liga squad is insane, so it should not take to long :smile:

    I have 12 tokens from first set, will complete La Liga + 11 first owner at the same time, there will be just one more to go and I`ll take Zanetti, grind is over for me then.

    Done 11 of first so doing 4 online and the 4 offlines for butra.

    Best way ive found for doing the 7 first owners objectives is, because i play 4-2-3-1, have the keeper, all defence and 2 cdms the first owners from the league I’m doing then just use my normal teams attack.

    Need 2 more ligue 1 wins then think i’ll do la liga. Already done prem and seria A. Getting online out of the way before offline which i can take my time with.

    Have 11 atm 9 from set 1 and 2 from this lot, no idea who to get, thought about Nesta/Zanetti, but keep looking at Wrighty for purely nostalgic reasons loved to watch him play, but just not sure, there also Butragueno can't decide, makes my brain hurt a little, lol.
  • Grabbed me a Zanetti and really can’t be bothered grinding to get Schmeichel too. Might change my mind but for now I’m good.

    Did the same. Get 5 and get out. Does Zanetti's picture appear on the app for you? My card just has a grey profile.

    + 12 carried over
    Completed the offline SB ones +4
    Complete EPL and One club wonders + 2

    +1 needed for mid Gerrard then the grind is done...

    Will still probably complete the other 5 but on a casual basis. Pretty sure at some point they’ll be an SBC to dump redundant icon swap cards into

    i have done three online (epl, seria A and bundes), now working on squad battles to get the remaining 4 for Gerrard. With the time I have probably will finish these in the coming week.

    I could do 11 last time, just needed 5 for Rio.

    Did prem(+first owned) and bundes on DR and nos/bbva on SB and done! SB was somehow much harder this time, bad delay and lag.

    Loving Rio, I'm not a great defender and he makes me relax about my backline. Also I liked him personally, so the choice and the grind was not too bad.

    This! Been doing it for years. Also, the more people that have bronze squads, the better. You play other peoples squads in SB.
    Also make your bronze team low chem with striker in goal and so on.

    Also, im 6 tokens off, need 20 for hagi. Should have him by next week.
