Pack Weight has drastically changed

Opened up around 300k worth of packs, the worst of which was a Premium Gold Jumbo and the best being a 50k Rare Players Pack.

I got one board - De Rossi and 83 rated. Before I would get a special card every other pack.

Anyone else experiencing this? I dont really care as the game is completely and utterly dead but interesting to see how they are completely changing the pack weight day to day

    Opened about 15 different packs for WL, Marquee Matchups and other SBC yesterday late evening. Had numerous special cards including TOTS SMS, Depay, FOF, PTG, scream etc. So you never know but chance of getting special card is still high. You are not guaranteed smth decent but still it will be a special one.

    My theory is they are releasing a big SBC needing many high rated players. People are all getting less in packs, they got rid of the 81+ upgrades, so far a pretty uneventful FUTTIES week. Makes sense, when you think like EA, that people will "need" to buy packs with points to complete the big SBC(s). That, partnered with the FUT09 SBC hint at Ronaldo coming.

    Damn, I have had literally nothing over a week at least, won the draft numerous times and dont ever remember it being this bad - however I got a beta invite for UT so cant complain

    Or you could look at it in a positive manner...6 weeks of practice on the new gameplay? (Even though we all know it changes, especially after first patch.

    Not sure about the Ronaldo shout (we will see in around half an hr) but I think the rest is spot on

    yeah, honestly I don't even play that much early in the game. mostly try to spend my time acquiring coins because there is bound to be 5/6 patches that completely change gameplay in the first 2 months. What's the point of practicing a game that won't be around in that current version for more than 10 days

    You said it yourself, gameplay will be completely different come the release of the full game (or at least after 4-5 days when they kill it).

    I’m all for being positive, but I see no advantage of playing 6 weeks of fut beta... especially during the summer!

    On one hand EA is too lazy to release any new SBCs, on the other hand they sit there changing packweight at random times.

    Comes close to believing in scripting lol.

    Go suck a D1C

    300k is hardly a decent sample size to make sweeping statements of card weights supposedly being changed. From the packs you had stored, that's likely in the region of 7-10 packs.

    Back in the days of me doing pack only, I could easily go millions of coins without packing a special card, or a card above 84 rated. I recall spending 9 million cards on a 100k lightning round before hitting a team of the season card during UT17 BPL TOTS.
