and got no boards


absolutely made me want to vomit and never want to use points again.

Clearly intentional to not release special packs by EA with a TOTW like this.

    Those pack are for getting as a reward or if you want to pay over the odds for some consumables.

    After week 2 or so anyway....

    They never usually release promo packs the same day TOTW is released and why couldn’t you wait till Friday for better packs? :|

    Yeh I know they're ****, but they didn't use to be this ****... unless it's the illusion of the boards.

    Anyways don't waste money on anything like that, keep it for special packs.

    That is a very dumb thing to do. The odds getting even a rare player is crazy low. Why on earth would you waste coins or points on these packs given that big packs are just around the corner.

    You're asking a FUT player to be patient? :dizzy:
    I did keep some points for tomorrow/friday... but still, what's the point of these 7.5k packs with ridiculously low pack weight

    You're missing the point..

    50 packs and not a single player above 82... that's what you should be focusing on

    You should never open these 7.5k.. I once rage opened some packs and luckily got Reus who I sold for 120k and stopped. So I made around a 60-70k profit. That was a lesson never to open these stupid packs tho.

    I had 325k burning a hole and no real investments available this week

    No ifs but mbappe and a few others of reasonable value should see me break even and a nice restock if club.
  • I guarantee you will get something good after opening 1 ultimate pack on Friday. If u opened 50 packs, odds are you recieved at least 42 rare players. Lets say u opened 1 ultimate pack and a 50k pack and got trash. The next ultimate pack "should" yield a much better return.
    It sucks u got nothing, but i bet 100k that u will get a cpl nice pulls after opening a 125k pk.

    i didn't say I didn't get a TOTW , I said I didn't get a board.


    a **** kagawa or some ****... that's my **** point. Yes I shouldn't have been tempted to open now but that doesn't change the fact that getting an 83 rated player shouldn't be so difficult

    I wasn't expecting to pack naingollan, just a **** board in 50 packs... that's the point I'm making but nevermind guys, of course it's my fault... definitely not EAs

    £40 of packs and not even an 83.

    I guess that’s the gamble you take.

    Well why not?

    Millions do... millions would like to pack a special card and be able to sell them on quickly at a good price.

    I personally feel like you're more likely to pack these informs early on after the release, and least likely on a tuesday .... but that's superstition as there's no way to prove it.

    Are you all telling me that non of you open 7.5k packs anymore?

    That’s pretty poor so I agree with the OP, but whilst people like the OP do it, EA will keep the cycle going.

    Look how few Hazards and Pogbas appear to be getting packed based on the handful listed. Hardly any. Weight must be atrocious. I doubt you would get one in 25 ultimate packs.

    Eventually this will all come out in the wash but for now you are best steering well clear of basic packs as a minimum.

    Yeh please don't do what I've done kids :D

    To be honest this is only the second time I've uploaded points on the game this year, so I generally am not part of the problem.

    Opened a few recently but didn't pack anything worth talking about. I sometimes open 100FP packs instead. Can get some high value desirable players from those even though it's only 1 rare.

    Omg please shush if you have nothing insightful to say.

    this isn't about gambling or not gambling... this is about player 'weight'

    Packing 83 rated players in past Fifa was so common compared to this year, that is the point.

    I'm pretty down on pack luck right now myself, as I had 13 packs saved from Squad Battles, Marque Match Ups, the Porto SBC and two drafts, and got one board in all of them. Ironically, the board was in the first pack I opened... containing just one rare gold, which turned out to be an in form... but it was the guy from Luton. It was probably around 200k's worth of packs in terms of coins, although admittedly nothing really worth more than 45k individually.

    I do question why you'd blow all that on 7.5k packs when we're so close to black friday...

    From what i've won from drafts recently i've had decent packs than usual, recently had kross and rodriguez hero twice, not great but profit is profit. Before hand though i had been getting nothing for a while and refuse to spend money on packs as i think its just not worth it, would rather earn my packs so i don't care who i get and won't be disappointed

    So we all know the 7.5K packs are rubbish and you hardly ever get a good card from them, if it's only them on sale then where are all the new TOTW cards on the market coming from?

    if you spend x amount of real money or fifa coins you should be guaranteed boards, informs and even icons

    I had some good luck with 7.5k. 2 x Litmanen, Hagi, Laudrup. KDB, Lewandowaki and I opened a lot of them. But usualy every 25 was a boards worse case. And pack weight of them changed drasticly. From 12k fp on the begining of fifa i had at least 2 informs and some good boards. Last time I opened 100 packs got out around 150k back but i used all the non expensive players for 81+ upgrade and got OTW Jesus and IF Son l, Eriksen and Buffon. But cant trade them :dizzy:
