So, I made a pack only account and proceeded to do some SBCs and build up. Team links were horrendous for 2 week. Completed the SBC for Cavani to have a solid French strike force. Yesterday I completed the players abroad and packed IF Nabry and pjanic. I was stoked. Sold pjanic and completed the hybrid leagues. Got barely anything and then last pack I get Desailly and IF Susaeta! Crazy. Like 20 packs deep and this account hits a legend. Also my record is like 19-9-47. 40 losses were from totw challenge to get loyalty for challenges.

New accounts have better pack luck in your opinion? I have made 31k from match earnings and 136,339 in transfer profit.

    Lol. You know you can dashboard right off kick off of the TOTW challenge and you won't get a loss, but it still counts as a game for your loyalty right?

    This is pack only so I'm keeping him. I don't think I can pack better.

    Passing and dribbling don't look good though.

    No such thing as new account pack luck. Did all advanced SBCs + MM and got no one above 8k coins.

    Passing solid, dribbling does matter as he has great strength.

    Tried this last fifa with my brother.

    He received more high rated players from 6k fp than i did from fifa 12 to 16. And i spent way more than i wanna say :'(

    EA is a business so it makes sense to give new accounts good luck to get them to enjoy the game and thus increase the likelyhood of them spending real money.

    Only a matter of time before people find the evidence of that

    I made a second account for gens trading last year and get the similar results. Far better pack luck on there than on my main account. I used it for a RTG campaign on 16, did a bit of trading to raise coins for packs and pulled TOTS cards in successive packs as well as the odd IF and MOTM card whereas I opened more packs on my main account and packed nothing worth more than 30k all year - NIF Chiellini being my best pull.

    Purely anecdotal evidence of course.

    I also remember making another account for my daughter in 15 and the 5th pack had Cannavaro.

    I'm of the belief this is 100% true. Every one of my friends that started a new account got a great pull within the first 5-10 packs. I also did this a few years ago to test the theory and pulled TOTY David Luiz in my second pack. Meanwhile, I've opened my fair share of packs this year and my best pull was Koscielny.

    Think weights are higher for new accounts to draw in the new player, but it's just a conspiracy theory.

    I need some solid players to go with SBC Cavani and Desailly. Struggling to pack some French league. I'm thinking to target the ligue 1 SBC after the easy ones to have Lacaz and Cavani up front. Would love to pack matuidi.

    Ive done it a few times this year but just did it again after seeing this thread...

    Pulled a cheeky MOTM De Ligt from one of the 3 easy SBCs it makes you do before progressing.

    Only a 7k player but still great seeing that blue flare when its not at all expected

    I did this last week, within 7 hours I had packed Lukaku, Varane, Suarez, SIF Firmino and a few other special cards. By far the best luck I've had all year

    I think I may do pack only next year.

    I made a new account this week and have been doing sbcs and already I've got Courtois , IF Banega , a green , expensive silvers that were used in the MM and a random Palermo player that sold for like 8k. So in less than a week on this account I've already packed around 100k or more worth in players.

    Takes about 5min. It generates a new email address while you are doing it on the console

    Better to do it on console then? Do you just sign out from your ea account on the game?
