If you want to complete the objectives in record time, then combining multiple requirements to speed up your play is the way to go.
Find out all the squad combinations to do so below, as well as suggested XI's to use to give you the best chance against the computer.
What are Icon Swaps?
First off, let's give a quick rundown of what the Icon Swaps are and why you need to complete them.
By completing these Icon Swaps objectives you will gain the reward of a card that acts as a token.
If you check the Squad Building Challenges hub, you will notice there are new Icon Swaps SBCs in there, where you redeem your tokens to gain rewards.
These rewards vary from packs full of higher-rated players, packs containing random Icon cards or Icon picks, or just a straight swap for a specific Icon.
These objectives let you bring in some of the best cards in the game, without having to spend masses of coins to do so, and rewards players for completing objectives, not just competing against each other.
Icon Swaps Leagues
Unfortunately, you cannot combine any of the objectives for the Icon Swaps Ligue 1, Icon Swaps Bundesliga, or Icon Swaps Serie A objectives.
This is because you need to play in the Live FUT Friendly: One League, which doesn't even let you include additional leagues on the bench.
With many more people playing to the Golden Goal rule now Icon Swaps are out, you should be able to complete these objectives with minimum fuss.
Icon Swaps Combination Squads
With both sets of objectives during Icon Swaps 1, and during Icon Swaps 2 Set 2, EA was crafty with their selection, with three ways to complete the objectives, which meant playing a minimum of 18 Squad Battles matches.
This time you won't have to play as many matches, as you can do it in just 12 Squad Battles games!
So long as one of your teams is also made up of 11 First Owned players, the combinations are:
- Silver/MLS/Brazilian + English
- Silver/English + MLS/Brazilian
The choice you go for will depend on what first owned players you have in your club, but we would recommend going for the Silver/English/First Owned + MLS/Brazilian combination, as there have been many Silver English objective players to help you out.
Then it's up to you to win 13 FUT Champions matches in as little time as possible!
To help you out even further, here are some squad suggestions that you can use to take the computer on in Squad Battles:
There are only 25 cards to choose from if you want to assemble a Silver/MLS/Brazilian team, and some of them are different versions of the same player!
Due to that, the cost of making the squad is extremely high, but if you act quick you can complete the objectives and sell the players without much loss.
A Silver Stars Talles Magno is the star of the squad, one of three players included that has 90+ pace.
- PlayStation - 97,500 coins
- Xbox - 100,000 coins
Unlike the other squad, there are masses of cards to pick from to make a Silver/English team.
Throughout the season we have had plenty of opportunities to draft in Silver Stars versions of English talents, who boast attributes far greater than their 74 OVR suggests.
If you have kept on top of player objectives and completed certain SBCs when you had the chance, you only need to include two regular Silver cards.
- PlayStation - 43,400 coins
- Xbox - 54,200 coins
