Genuinely shocked that they released that info. Belgium must have gotten to them.

    4.5% is higher than I expected tbh! :D

    Still appalling, but wow.

    So, if 84+ is 4.5%, a walkout has to be <1%, right?

    I don't know what people were expecting with this. Loads of people seemed so happy this was a thing in FIFA 19, but i don't get why, we all know packs are bad anyway.

    Yeah, and icon will be minuscule.

    There is no way that is accurate (and/or still that way in full version), specifically the 20% for an 82+ player. Anybody who has put a decent amount of coins into WC mode can vouch for that ...

    Based on the amount of 7.5s i ripped last year. These pack odds seem to be improved a fair bit compared to last fifa

    Anyone familiar with MMORPGs will know that drop rates like these are basically the norm. You either commit a lot of time grinding or a lot of money buying packs/crates/making donations or whatever.


    I've seen drops as low as 0.001% for the top tier items in other games, no doubt icons/high end totws and nifs have similar drop rates.

    *WoW player*

    I'm all too familiar with the odds of getting specific mounts to drop.

    This was my favorite (from the release)! :D

    “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.”

    Also, we have to consider the amount of 84+ cards that are 84 rated must be circa 75%, so how does the odds increase for 85, 86, 87 etc? And IF’s? Does that include special cards as technically they’re ‘gold’ cards, but are the odds for an 84 rated base player the same as when he has an IF that’s 86 rated?

    Literally tells us the bare minimum required to cover their backsides in a legal battle.

    Sums up ea pretty well tbh.

    4.5% isn't too bad. I swear I didn't get an 84+ every ~20 7.5k packs (on average) last year :joy:

    I believe the IFs (as well as other special cards) are covered in their other note that it can be <1% varrying with each event.

    We all know that pack odds to get higher rated players was increased during WC mode.

    Nice and vague.

    People asked for pack weights, EA delivered with the pack weights.

    Yeah I know bud, but dunno why people wanted it when it doesn’t really change anything.

    I was thinking this too. I'm still dumping the same amount in. Getting a walkout was a bonus, not an expectation.

    Hope for nothing to get nothing is how I open packs.

    I guess for people who don’t know anything about the game. After playing for a few years most should know the odds.

    Based off previous years those odds are better
  • I'm fine with this, not that it changes anything for me. I thought the weight would be a lot worse tbh!

    People will still open packs.

    People will still complain that they don’t get high rated players.

    People will fail to understand percentages.
