    Start trading and you'll realise it's much more profitable. That said, I'll proably get myself 12k FP for TOTY :)

    That's why I had the +50k weekly profit, I am a trader, bust mostly end up losing again because of opening these idiot packs..

    @RadioShaq yeah I got 150k in IF's atm

    @BerserkCo yeah I was like well I'm busy with school so can't play so lets see if I get something from packs lol

    I watch pack opening streams when I feel like opening packs. When they get nothing for hours and spend hundreds or thousands, I feel much better about myself.

    i just realised its really silly and the odds are long on something decent.
    basically i go to betfair,make a few quid then buy some.....that way its not coming out of my pocket!
    but i have even stopped that now as it was cutting back on real cash profit from sports trading.
    plus all the listing.............i still have over 3000 consumables to sell of which im doing to save as many coins as poss for toty futmas etc

    Once I have a decent amount of coins to enjoy my team and be able to try most players i hardly open anymore packs.

    Only cure for me was to sell the game since I was spending alot of money on this like I do every year, problem with this year is I didn't enjoy playing FUT 16, I was just buying packs and FP just to open packs because I was addicted so much to pack opening.

    Not saying you should quit playing but if your opening packs more than playing games than it won't get easier with TOTY hype incoming.

    I'am more amazed at the people who buy loads of FP before even playing the game and then complain how **** it is after blowing loads of cash on it.

    As long as you are spending coins, I don't see a problem. I have a few teams atm which a really enjoy using. They are pretty cheap, though one team has Ibra innit. I just open packs from time to time when I've got some coins. I know I'm wasting all my coins, but I don't really need any other players and I enjoy the chance of maybe packing a player I wouldn't be able to afford at all in this game ever.
