Hi peeps,

I'm going to treat EA and myself tonight and buy 12k FP.

I know packs are sucky and so I'm probably asking a stupid question (buying 12k FP could also be considered stupid so hey ho :wink: ), however should I just stick to the normal premium gold packs and not open any of the promo ones? What I'm asking is are the promo ones really worth the extra, or is just opening more with the prem gold packs as solid as it's going to get?

I would love to spend all the fp on Drafts, but I rarely get past the second round so it seems like a waste.

Thoughts (besides the obvious don't do it responses :smiley: )

Cheers.

    if you are primarily only playing SB, then don't bother, might as well save the $$$ for Black Friday, Futmas, TOTY, etc...

    Yep, I agree. Better players do help immensly if your a poor player. Great players can play with any teams, however, even the best still rock with million pound teams, so nope, don't agree with his statement.

    I understand the issues the game has, however there is a reason people go 40 and 0 and the same people getting elite rewards or winning drafts consistanly even with the issues.

    Still, I'm going to open up the packs tonight.

    If you're dead set on packs, then you got to do it with the big promo packs or when there's big dollar players available

    oh well, they often suck...in my last 50k pack (WL rewards) the best pull was Belotti, the rest was close to discard value.... :D

    Statistically, the promo packs always offer better odds on pulling good cards as they have a higher ratio of rare cards. However, you could get CR7 in a 5k pack and nothing in 10 100k packs. So it's a lottery as always

    5 Prime gold packs - Highest pulls Morata and Vahtongan (SP) IF Dost.

    From the other packs. Non of any great worth. Bakayoko and a few 83s.

    All in all, it was an okish 12k, with me making around 100k+ with all the hunter cards, comsumerables, 1k+ players etc.

    Do I have buyers remorse? Nope I don't. Better than smoking it away or or **** it away with lots of booze.

    No Icon or Ronaldo though :wink:

    Same time next month me thinks.

    Cheers.

    Unlucky dude, if you weren't so hung up for the coins for the non rare gold cards I would suggest spamming the gold upgrade, it's been very kind to me this year. Among others of course.....pulled auba the other night from them, and IF michy ....normally cost about 3-5k a pop but you'd have loads of players from 12k FP

    Would've waited till tomorrow. EA will probably release some big promo for the Halloween weekend to go along with the boosted players.

    Hi mate,

    Did as you mentioned and pulled Ceasar Asperq (sp), Jesus, Martial and Godin. This was out of 10 two player packs.

    Happier now, but figures I get better untradables than tradeable ones :smiley:

    Still, already had Jesus and Martial so it's another 100k, with still a ton of golds, silvers and consums to sell.

    Long process but all in all, about 200k + and I've still got 1900 FP left that I thought I'd used :smiley:
