10 BPL Player packs pay off...

Hadn't touched FIFA because I was out of town all weekend... Returned home and was looking at building in some TOTS EPL players. While away I did the EPL TOTS SBC and pulled myself a 90 Sadio Mane.

I had prided myself on not spending a dime on the game this year (other than buying the game) and had gotten to this point with a great club (six icons, 2M+ coins, etc...) but when I saw the 10 promo packs in the store I was like "Eh - it's almost midnight, maybe I'll get lucky..." so I dropped about $35 (US) on 4600 FIFA points so I could buy the ten packs that were 400 points apiece.

The last seven or eight packs were horrendous but in my first pack I managed a 92 Son and a 90 Young in the same pack - which was amazing also as those were two I was going to try to get in a squad anyways. Then I opened the second pack and out comes 93 Sterling... BOOM.

So thank you EA... I was going to buy a RM, LM, two Strikers and a LB to make an EPL / Icon Hybrid squad and you gave me all of that except for one Striker. With that savings I have the coins to get Aguero instead of a more budget option like Kane and/or Lukaku.

    I’m not being funny but if you opened the first pack and got two TOTS players and good ones at that, why bother carrying on??

    Already had dropped the cash on points to do all 10 packs so just continued on with it...

    Fair enough. I think I would’ve thought I’ve been lucky there and saved them for Ultimate TOTS or WC.

    Good story, but now you'll feel enticed to open more, and you'll have lost the pride of having not spent.

    No offense of course - Very happy for your good return.

    @BMANUTD - I also have EA Access or whatever it is that gets me a discount off points. 12,000 points are I believe $89 with the discount here for perspective.
