TOTW Tradeable upgrades were disappointing

Yeah yeah, I knew the risk, but really, I think EA have just changed my mindset forever.

Rather than sell up, I did the totw sbcs over the weekend in hope for Ronaldo, Neymar, or at very least 89 Verratti. Had I sold up, I could have bought Pat Vieira.
Given that it is now April, and I genuinely believed I would get one of the biggies.

Got 6 tradeables;

Thiago
Forsberg
Keane
Pulisic
Kamino
Darida

So well done EA, you have convinced me that, for Fifa 18, the only way to get the best players without spending hundreds of real pounds, will be to trade like a total creep.

Happy Brithday.

    You did 6 and happened to pull one of the Top 4 in Thiago? Why are you complaining?
    Unless im misreading that? Although i'm not sure how 6 set you back what big Pat would have.

    At current/weekend transfer rate, I spent the equivalent of 1.5 million coins on those 6 players.

    It is not a reward at all.

    May not even bother with 18.

    Haven't played a match online for over a week.

    If it was a reward, there would be no incentive for EA to do it

    It's luck based, you can't complain when you don't get the big 2-3 in a system that relies on luck.

    Thiago sells for just over 100k. I could have sold up and got 1.5 million coins, but instead I put my faith in the game being nice for a change and got those 6 in return.
    My Ultimate team is done for the year until TOTS, so a Legend in midfield would have been nice.
    Massive massive mistake.

    Very very expensive SBCs for TOTW cards only worth twice what my keeper used cost.

    At end of the day, it is a game, but would be nice to come away from these weekend events feeling like we actually scored.

    Chasing Neymar/Ronaldo was silly really

    Look how many attempts it took people to get lower rated Pogba OTW

    You dont get how I spent 1.5 million, because I didnt say that, or spend that.
    However, if I had sold up the 100+ players I used on these, I would have had a lot of coins. Maybe 1.5 million is not accurate. My son said it was that.

    Did 6 tradebale, worth a lot of coins. 2 TOTW players each time. Handanovic every time.

    Each one costs like 50 or 60k. Did you genuinely believe you were going to get Ronaldo/Neymar out of just 6 packs?

    hando = 14k
    totw = 12k-15k depending who you use.
    8 other 82-84 players = 24-35k depending

    That is a lot to get a card worth 11.5k - 15k most of time.

    It is out of order.

    Should have sold up.

    Why did it cost you 250k per go?

    Why did you expect Ronaldo or Neymar from doing 6? If that was the case with packs everyone would have them.

    EDIT- Just seen you say you didn't spend 1.5m, but my question is why would you use players worth that when you could sell them and do your 6 attempts for half or less of 1.5m?

    I'm very confused as to what you done and how you went about it.

    But you know the risks of opening a pack. You aren't guaranteed to make profit every time you do a tradeable IF SBC, surely you can understand that?

    1.5m divided by 6 is 250k, from what I am understanding you used 250k worth of players per go.

    Anyway the main point is you know your mistake now for the next time one of these SBC things roll about. I agree they are not worth the coins but to expect Ronaldo or Neymar from 6 is madness, I actually think you got quite lucky with Thiago, considering how bad these packs are.

    Oh look, another thread by @YouWantUsFC blaming EA for his stupidity.

    Imo, that return is very good. You got 1 of the top 4 in just 6 packs. Impressive.
