Wondering whether or not you should do the Prime Icon SBC ? We have the perfect solution for you
FIFA 21 – Should you do the Prime Icon SBC Upgrade ? | FUT SBC
It could be really confusing when it comes to icon SBCs especially since they are untradeable and most of the icons are not that good. So is it worth the risk? Before we answer that we need you to understand probability of you picking up an icon worth more than the SBC itself.
The SBC would cost you around 442k on the PlayStation , 415k on the XBox and 483k on the PC. So let us just consider the price to be 447k (an average of the 3 prices). I will show you a list of icons who are above 447k in price at the moment.
Prime Icons Above 447k :
- Diego Maradona
- Carlo Alberto
There you go. A list of all the icons currently above 447k. Now we know that the total number of icons in FUT 21 is 101. Out of a 101 icons we have 37 icons who are above 447k. Now that gives you a 37% (36.63% to be precise) chance of picking up an icon which could do you a good profit. I wish FIFA pack opening had been this simple. 37% seems to be a fairly good chance for you to pick up a good icon. But then it does not work that way. There is something called pack weight or drop rate. So the lower tier icons will have a much higher drop rate than any of the icons above the value of the SBC. That reduces your chances to even below 10%.
Remember one thing that there is only a few days until we get Team of the Season (TOTS) and icon prices are going down a lot. So the number of icons above the value of the SBC will drastically reduce. You will end up wasting the 450k worth fodder or coins. TOTS will give us a lot of amazing cards and SBCs. If you take my advice , save all your fodder for TOTS. Prime icons will end up being below average. Honestly apart from a few most of them are actually below average. The only reason I would use an icon right now would be for chemistry. Apart from icon moments and a few other prime icons , most of them are not good enough at the moment. Hence , I would personally stay away from this SBC.
I hope this guide has been helpful. Do let us know and enjoy the game.
