I mean wow!

I expected them to be difficult but these are just absurd lol

I can’t beat cpu on legendary and I struggle on world class so don’t know how I’m gonna do this.

Online swaps just looks an endless chore upon endless chore... I wanted ADP so 6 token now with 14 days to complete...

Don’t know might just leave it...

    It might be slightly more informative if you tell people what the requirements are.
  • People get carried away and forget that during TOTS 95% of Icons are not useful anymore. Certainly not grinding for any of these, just like I didn't bother grinding for any on the Icons in Icons swaps 1.

    I thought I was the only one who find the objectives ridiculous and grindy.

    Gonna try and get 11 at least for zambrotta. Rest don't really care for.

    Lol 7 first owned players obviously wasn't enough. The online wins requires 9 first owned players from that league!

    6 squad battles wins? Do they want me to die of boredom or what.

    EA, bring back icon SBCs, please.

    These are just not worth the effort.

    Mate I don’t work for EA...

    I saw the requirements using the companion app coming home from work. I’m not even at home on my console. It’s not hard.

    I was looking at ADP but then thinking about it by the time I compete that they will be better cards also few promos along the way.

    Rumoured RTTF batch 2 tomorrow

    I’m not gonna bother with it. It’s too much man of a chore mediocre icon and probably all irrelevant come the new year with TOTY and few other promos.

    If you cant beat 50 rated 40 chem teams on legendary, then you dont deserve to use icons.. Unless you care about SB rewards, you can just play against that first squad 700 times.. Just keep refreshing
  • the objectives are easy. just time consuming and ofc we have to wait 2 months for a ❤️❤️❤️❤️ essien. so nice of them

    The thing is last year all year everyone was complains about how SBC ‘s are ❤️❤️❤️❤️ that everything is so expensive, EA done something different to balance the game and make it right for everyone to have equal opportunity and still complains, only thing I would say is the most boring is SB challenge online is the most fun to play with random teams. Enjoy the moment guys icons aren’t free

    Thanks for the tip mate.

    It’s the boredom that kills it honestly I can’t stand playing for XP on season progress lol

    But this is waaaaayy over the top.

    I get the time sink on squad battles is not great. But end of the day it's a challenge to complete and play with different players. If you dont want to do it then dont.

    Same as why I dont play weekend league much, yet I dont create a thread saying it should be a week league to allow me to play. I dont want to spend lots of time on the weekend playing fifa so just dont

    I may slowly and casually get van der sar just because I liked him last year. I personally won't bother with the grind for more, for me I just prefer to play with my team and don't overly enjoy a lot of these objectives using 9 1st owned serie a etc.

    For others this is perfect.

    This and icon sbcs would have been perfect.
