FUT Mobile has added pack odds to their packs, examples of which can be found here:

This brings some interesting questions: will we get new packs similar to those in MUT or FUTMobile? will they be releasing new packs with increased odds, similar to how happy hours used to be? Or will we just get the pack odds they have at launch and keep them that way all year?

Thoughts?

    About what was expected really. Enough to say they're doing something, but not enough to give you a real idea of how likely you are to pull anything decent

    It might be an unpopular opinion, but I don't think it's necessary for EA to disclose the pack odds. It clearly states what you're getting when you buy a pack (ex. a premium gold pack is 12 items, at least 10 gold with 3 rares). Sure the pack weights might be absolutely abysmal, and you end up with three 75 non rares, and three rare gold contracts, but that's the risk of opening packs.

    Anyone who thought this was going to list the % chance of getting Ronaldo probably still eats their roast dinner with a spoon.

    It doesnt matter what you think, it matters what laws in some countries think. EA has to do this by law.

    People will still buy packs and EA will still be laughing to the bank regardless whether or not they get forced by laws in other countries to disclose odds. They will find a loophole if they haven't already

    And if packs were removed and we loss icons, all promos, and probably all things that make fut fun you would be happy. this game would become head to head seasons but hey at at least ea would make less money

    My problem is without set odds they can manipulate the drop rates whenever they fell like it tricking the costumer into thinking he's getting good pack odds one week just to change them the next. They do have pack odds in MLB the Show Diamond Dynasty why not FUT? Regardless of what it says you're supposed to get it's still a form of gambling especially when buying FP with real money.
