    Very good to know.
    Problem is, from what I've read, you see the pack probabilities only from the store page and not when you choose WL/SB/Rivals rewards, which is what I'd really like to know before choosing which type of reward I want...

    I assume they only have the obligation to show odds for the cash bought packs, not for the ones that they “gift you”.

    That seems a bit high, a 84 rated or above player every 20.packs?

    For a 7.5k pack, I'd say that's right

    Starting at launch, FIFA 19 will begin displaying pack probabilities, which will detail the likelihood of what you will get in every pack that you purchase. We believe that providing you with this information will help you make decisions on where you want to invest your FIFA Points, FUT Coins, and time in order to build your best FUT squad. will help us cover our **** in future legal battles regarding the legality of our business model

    o:)

    And there is no way a 7.5 Pack has 20% chance on an 82+ player. Everybody that put coins into WC mode (and got a **** of 7.5k packs in regular FUT) can vouch for that.

    4.5% for an 84+ isn't too bad, was expecting worse odds.

    Question is what's the percentage for 85+ ot 86+ et.c. If 95% of 84+ is 84 then it's pretty bad. They're basically telling you nothing

    Yeah. What I want to know is the probability of hitting ANY icon. Now that'd be more worthwhile, and let's be honest, most people are opening packs to hit elite players, not just 84's.

    Edit :- So EA have told us the probability of hitting an 84 is 4.5%. What that doesn't answer is the probability of hitting the best players, so the 88+'s, the icons, the informs. Basically what @Tof33z has said.

    I doubt that 84 and all the 85+ rated players, especially icons, are distributed in packs equally.

    Those probabilities are likely calculated via millions and millions of pack opening simulations.
    Whether that will correlate to the same probability from... I don't know, 20 or 50 packs, is highly doubtful.
    So what should really be written there is "certain", "not very likely", and "not likely"...

    think you have more chance sleeping with the Icon then packing him

    Should have shown what 85+ was probably about 1.5 or 2%. I dont even open many packs and must have packed Jonas, Dzeko etc about 30 times each this year.

    Simulations have nothing to do with it. Pack odds aren't given to us by the divine providence, they're programmed by EA. They know the actual odds of packing certain players.

    I just wish he had something a little more specific than this.

    Probably it's just something to cover their legal backsides.

    Can't wait for all the topics moaning about not getting a 82+ player after 5 packs cause 5 x 20% is 100% :D

    We're going to see a lot of probability fails in the forums. :joy:

    Mods going to have the following on copy & paste in a heartbeat ;

    "Any probability percentages that you see are on a pack-by-pack basis and are not cumulative. That means that each pack opening is an independent event; opening multiple packs does not change the likelihood of being awarded an item from a specific category. If you flip a coin three times and get heads each time, you still have a 50% chance of getting heads if you flip the coin again. "

    Don’t celebrate too fast. That 4.5% may easily mean 4.49% for the 84 and 0.01% for the +. 😀😀😀

    Additionaly there are so many different other flavors that are not covered by that image, such as TOTW, Icons, etc...
