EA have just dropped a bombshell by revealing there will be 3 versions of an as yet unspecified amount of FIFA 18 Icons Stories. In the trailer which was leaked online before the official announcement, we saw some Icons already revealed and their 3 ratings.
FIFA 18 Icons Stories breaks the Internet
The collective crowd gathered on twitch, youtube and twitter were shocked to see yet another thing never done by EASPORTS. The video is headlined by Ronaldinho – A much awaited player to grace the Legends/Icons ranks.
The already announced Icons – Yashin, Pele, Maradona, Henry, and the original Ronaldo were joined by some new Icon announcements. As mentioned, Ronaldinho has now joined the Icons ranks along with Rio Ferdinand.
What are the FIFA 18 Icons Stories?
The FIFA 18 Icons Stories are a collection of 3 cards of the same Icon. Each card represents a different era in the player’s career. It is yet unclear if all 3 cards will be available to be packed from the beginning of the season, or if the cards progress somehow.
What we are suspecting is that because some of the cards do not have a straight ratings progression, they may be available to be packed from the start. To point this out, look at the ratings on Rio Ferdinand who has Icons cards from 2002, 2006, 2008. The 2002 card is rated 85 OVR CB, the 2006 card rated 90 OVR, and the 2008 card rated 88.
However, EA may still throw us a curveball by having us be able to pack only the lowest rated card. We would then have to “upgrade” the card by way of SBC’s.
Let us know in the comments below how you think the FIFA 18 Icons Stories will play out.
What is clear is that we will have to wait for the game’s release in a few months time to see exactly how FIFA 18 Icons Stories will work.
