EA Sports revealed a major change to EA FC 24 Ultimate Team with Icons being reduced to just one base version at launch. That means no more Base, Mid or Prime versions of Icons moving forward in Ultimate Team.
Icons have undergone major changes over the years in FIFA Ultimate Team. Once known as Legends, EA Sports has looked to continuously upgrade the system amid player feedback. Previously, there would be multiple versions of a single Icon. Zinedine Zidane, for example, would have a Base and Mid version available in packs at launch. At a certain time, the Base item would leave packs in favor of the Prime version.
Last year, EA Sports introduced Campaign Icons adding special versions of promotional Icons into packs. This more or less phased out numerous versions of Icons earlier that EA Sports probably wanted. So, moving forward, there will be just one base version of Icons at launch.

"In EA SPORTS FC™ 24, each Icon in your Squad will now give an additional Chemistry contribution to every League that’s represented in your squad.
