Review

So is it worth it? The SBC is roughly at the same price the original Base Icon pack was, yet now you have a better chance of packing a better icon.

That doesn't mean your odds of getting a bad one are lessened, there's still a number of bad mid icons and the game has evolved meaning there a lot of base icons that are no longer of use.

I think if you have a lot of fodder, and can do this for less than 400,000 coins it may be worth a go but its too risky, especially as this rewards is offered in the Icon Swaps and has better rewards too.
