    posted a message on This is it for me

    I have played about 3 online games in the past 2 weeks, my life is much better without FUT. I go to bed in better mood and wake up in a better mood :-) I do play offline games here n there but the annoyances there are no where close to online games. If the offline mode didn't have as much scripting I probably would never play online. It is just too much stress. I really enjoy Career Mode but same thing, there is scripting there as well and I always feel I'm losing out on coins so need to get to FUT. Anyways hope EA does something for an average gamer like me. I cannot play 40 games on weekends and most importantly cannot deal with the stress they put you through.

    Absolutely! If you've spent $2k on points you are entitled to expect a good return from that.

     

    Was that mainly at the start of the game you used the points?  That does usually seem to be the best time to buy and use points as the players considered trash now would have a much higher value then.

     

    There is of course a large element of luck in opening packs, but if you've spent $2k then this is far higher than the norm and probability should really have worked in your favour eventually.

     No that is the total I spent till now (and I am done and probably will think twice next year) plus about 1.5 mill coins and players worth about 600-700 coins on SBCs. And whatever this is ....EA is really dumb to do that because if I got a few TOTSs I would still be spending points.

    I don't believe your date of joining makes any difference to pack luck. I joined in December 2016 and I've had average pack luck this year.  Before 2 weeks ago my best pull was TIF Arnautovic (c.115,000 coins).  I did pull the 89 Hamsik when he was in packs and sold him for 200,000 coins.  I have opened hundreds of packs this year from league and Marquee Matchup SBC and find I have made profit on the SBCs, but it is a grind (as it needs to be to have a stable market for trading).

     

    From looking at evidence online, particularly You Tube videos, it does seem that packs that are purchased with Fifa Points do seem to have a much better return than those purchased with coins.  This does make sense from a business and game perspective from EA in terms of profit and market balance.  Less people use Fifa Points to buy packs than coins and I'm sure EA want to encourage people (consciously or unconsciously) to buy Fifa Points.  If packs bought with coins had the same return as with points, the market would soon become unbalanced and ruin the game and market.

     

    I watched a recent video by Boras Legend and he used c. 3,000,000 coins to buy packs for TOTS this year and had 1 trash walkout from all those packs/coins.  He also said he did the same thing at TOTS last year and had similar results.  However, he said he recently had very good luck on the same account when using Fifa points.  I've also viewed a lot of Nepenthez's Road to Glory videos and he has had terrible pack luck on that account.  I assume that was because, by definition, he could not buy Fifa points on that account.  On Nepenthez's main channel, where he purchased Fifa points, he was packing plenty of high rated cards.  There seems to be quite a lot of anecdotal evidence like this.  I personally don't see a problem with this approach as long as people understand what they are buying.

    •  If I go by you theory then I should have decent luck, just this year alone I've spent around 2k US dollars on packs. So like I said above this might not be the only factor but seems like could be a part of the algorithm

    i gave up on these, wasted tons of points, coins and players for SBC. It's like I have hit some trigger and I don't what I have to do to get my pack luck back....has this happened to anyone else over the years? This is my 2nd year so don't have too much experience yet.

    So last year I played with a couple of accounts, one was at level 50 and the other one was brand new. Ofcourse with the old account I got all the bonuses so that was a plus. But couple of things I noticed that were good about the new account...

     

    1- Team felt overpowered till I reached Div 6, after that it was all downhill. All the bullshit started to kick in and stuff.

    2- I had great pack luck with the new account, my older account where I bought tons of Fifa points the year prior got nothing last year whereas with the new account I packed multiple TOTY and TOTS. This year I did not create any new accounts and only opened packs with one account and I had the worst pack luck. Though some one mentioned in this other post that it does not matter when it comes to pack luck but I truly believe that there is something there, it might be the the trading profits from all those players I pack, I do not discard. I make sure I sell those cards even if it is a profit of 100 coins, I know it's a lot of work. So may be EA thinks I'm buying coins (that would be really dumb but we know EA does dumb stuff).

     

    So now I'm not sure what should I do when Fifa 18 comes out. Do you guys keep playing with one account? This is my 2nd year so my oldest account was created in Dec 2015 and one I play with right now was created in April of 2016.

    How many packs do you guys think you need to open in average to get a TOTS? I've opened 12 premiums SBC, 8 gold SBC and 4 "two rare player pack" but gotten nothing. Is it me being extremely unlucky here, or just the average packopener that needs to open 30 of the big ones to get a mediocre TOTS?

     

    And those are the exact numbers, as I've written them down for each pack Smile w/ teeth

    I don't think there is a number, some ppl herd got one within a few packs. For EPL I got mine after 30 and since has to be over.. a rough calculation based on how many players I had in the club and how many are left now. Not mentioning the 4k points and 600k coins I spent opening packs. Only other TOTS I got was 88 rated Boatang from La Liga last week.. useless!

    i think they give the blues easier to players with less games played/won...

    they can't use the "bought fifa coins" factor to calculate pack odds. that would screw them by the long term.

    but i've heard, that the laliga blues were hard to pack. calcio a are easier.

    i even have the feeling that friday (except most consistent week) did do much worse in packing blues.

     I'm not sure if Calcio A is any easier. I wasted 600 coins on packs and did about 10 SBCs amd my best player was from the pack I bought woth 50k! But your theory about newer accounts might be correct. Last year I played with 3 account and my oldest account where I bought the most Fifa points and played the most had the worst luck, did not pack a single TOTS or TOTY...hmm interesting!

    totally believe they have some sort of an algorithm. I have spent a lot of money on packs this year so may be thats why!? I don't know. I feel that they know that this guy buys points so if we give him players easily why would he open any packs
    That's hilarious 'cause I have the same theory the other way. I never buy any packs and play the market instead, so I figure my horrible pack luck is because I don't buy packs. I think the only consistent pattern is that we all get the shaft from EA.
     Ha! Ok guess then who knows.. yup you are right :-)

    Should I be doing the 2 player Gold Upgrade, or the Calcio upgrades (regular or premium/all-player pack)?

     

    I tried about 12 packs and no luck yet. Honestly, my pack luck has always been bad. Doing these packs feels like setting my coins on fire. Do you think it makes sense for someone with bad pack luck to keep doing these? I've already burnt about 35k, which would have been good to simply buy De Vrij (who is on my shopping list). Realistically, even if I land a TOTS player at some point, it will most likely be someone like De Vrij who I could have bought already.

     

    How much more coin should I burn away hoping to land even a 200k player like Belotti? I have never gotten more than a 25k player out of a pack in FIFA. At least with tradeable packs I can resell the surplus players and consumables, but with these packs it is mostly money down the drain.

     

     If it makes you feel any better since EPL I must have done atleast a 100 or may be more and I got back the 88 rated shit TOTS that I cannot use.  I also did a bunch of SBCs and still nothing. Reason I did this many was because I have a La Liga squad and my plan was to go all out when La Liga TOTS drops, but was not expecting my luck to be this bad! Ofcourse some of the players you can rotate but a bunch were tradeables. Totally feel cheated..,another reason I have cut down my game play time. Hate EA! Fuckin scammers! I totally believe they have some sort of an algorithm. I have spent a lot of money on packs this year so may be thats why!? I don't know. I feel that they know that this guy buys points so if we give him players easily why would he open any packs, if this is not the case I really don't know why would I have such a bad pack luck. All these guys here have packed multiple TOTSs from these SBCs... I mean come on!

    posted a message on Question for the game that don't put too much time into the Game
    Quote from tacticsdude >>

    I play other things. It started going back to an old Call of Duty. That was fun. Then I adopted Destiny and have been playing that for months. Also restarted the next in my rotation of Bethesda games (back to Oblivion), and I also dabbed occasionally on the free PES'17 MyClub.

     

    With all of that I'm playing FUT less than 3 hours per week, so I mostly just do the key SBCs and trade looking to raise funds for my player shopping list. When I buy a new player I'll play a few games to try it out.

     

    I can tell you I'm way happier NOT playing FUT (nor PES). These games suck the joy out of life. Destiny is a blast and I can play for hours with friends.

     

    BTW, it's summer now. Go outside.

     Yes I have not played FUT in about a week, did some SBCs, trading and played a few offline games...even those games are soo annoying Worldclass in Offline FUT Div 2...so full of scripting! So let's see.., I enjoy career mode the most but same thing there too...
    Thanks for the advice! I'm in Florida so it is summer here all the time :-) but yes I have a fulltime job in IT so need to focus more on my career n other things in life. I cannot think of a single day when this game gave me any pleasure. Always puts me in a bad mood.

    posted a message on Question for the game that don't put too much time into the Game

    So I'm done with the game and want to get back to other things in life. One reason being after all the annoyances I've had it with this game. I was already on the edge and recent SBCs just did it. I wasted soooo many coins, point and players only to get crap especially the SBCs. I totaly feel stupid for being taken advantage of..anyways that all has driven me to not play this game as much. So far not sure what to do, only do weekends, once during the week and then weeekend may be. If you are someone that cut down on playing, what worled the best for you? I have been trying for a while but was sooo addicted but now I really don't give a shit. EA 's bullshit has put me off soo much that I'm totally fine not playing this game as much. Any advice?

    Quote from iRaitis >>

    I've done 15 La Liga Premium ones with only having one walkout.. Iniesta!

     

    after that I put all of the non rares through for the la liga gold pack and managed to get Aspas in my 3rd pack.

     

    I swear the la liga gold pack sbc is where it's at. During bundesliga ones I packed TOTS Werner back to back in those.

     Luck you I've done about a 100 now n all I got was shit!

    Yeah I'm at a point I cannot decide if I keep going or give up. If there is a thing like meeting some threshold, may be I'm almost there. One thing is very obvious that they don't give out players randomly. There is a reason I keep getting the same discard value 81 rated informs or damn jordi alba and  busquets.  By the way didn't get those from SBCs....Ohh we gave u a walkout or an inform! My ass!! :-)
