So after almost everybody complain about packs weights, including myself, iv got an idea to bring ea some more cash while providing players some decent cards to use:
On xbox. Starter pack
Cost: 29 euro
Contents: 1 random legend (untradeable), 3 random ifs from totw, totg or whatever (untrad.)

Idea mutuated from Hearthstone, what u think about??

    Wouldn't put a legend in there, but a starter pack idea sounds fine if it's a one-off. EA probably won't do it though unless they can milk it.

    I'd at least expect them to be tradeable. Especially if it's a one off. Don't fancy being stuck with an untradeable Bierhoff.

    Yeah even on Madden, unless things have changed, you buy bundles and some of these bundles have a "Topper" that's guaranteed an Elite or TOTW or Legend, etc depending on the type of bundle. The one with the guaranteed legend iirc was in the upwards of $89.

    They'd never give a starter pack with a guaranteed tradable legend, mate.

    They kinda did that with the Pre-Order packs. 2 Jumbo Prem Gold packs & 2 TOTW loaners pack each week. I think I got 2 rounds of those packs before the game fully launched. Plus, you get some starter packs too.

    In the words of Theo Paphetis;

    And for that reason. I'm out.

    I'd buy it, but change the packs a bit.
    I'd go:

    £24.99 - 1 time only deal available to everyone titled 'FUT Starter Deal'

    2 Jumbo Rare Players Packs Tradeable - 100k pack - 24 Rare Players
    2 Mega Packs Tradeable- 35k pack - 30 items, 18 rare
    2 Jumbo Premium Gold Packs - 15k pack - 24 items, 7 rare

    Everyone would buy that when they first get on Fut, right? Equates to what would usually be about 5000FP for a bit cheaper than just buying 5000FP.

    Hearthstone has something similar for beginners which guarantees a legendary card

    Something like that could work for Fifa

    I don't want to play a legend every game. I know for a fact, tons of people would buy it.

    I remember using one of those back when i started on ut11. Think it was silver. From memory, all contents were non rare at a cost of 30k for the pack.

    I wised up quickly in my first few weeks of playing.

    I don't think any starter pack should include anything more than like a 20 loan legend. Maybe a guaranteed 86+ overall player or something, couple rare goals and some non rates.

    Guaranteed TOTW packs would be good, or bring back the SBC for it. Anyone know why it stopped?

    They normally do it with big promotions, TOTY, Movember, Scream Cards, etc.

    I wonder what people would pay for a starter legend and a TOTW card once a week?

    I think the issue with pack weights and good things like this, it just makes all the cards more expensive. I wonder if we'd be any better off.

    TOTY Ronaldo is the best card in the game. I'd sell him if I got him in a pack because of what else I could get for it. Same goes for Pele. If I was richer because of better pack luck, I'd want to keep them. Same goes for everyone else. So there'd be limited star cards. So price would go up even higher, just make to me consider selling them.

    It's a fine line people.......

    Would ruin the game, horrible idea

    There are thousands and thousands of people who spend more than 29 euros on the game.

    yeah, let's have thousands and thousands of people who will get a legend on day one.

    No

    I've been saying this for years that FIFA should do this.

    But why would they? People already spend stupid $ on virtual cards expecting a toty/legend but would be lucky to get David Silva or Fabregas.
