    From a computer science perspective, there is technically no such thing as randomness. A computer cannot be random since it runs off of algorithms and those algorithms have certain rules that they follow to occur.

    Me and @WFCBagnall know someone who has the most ridiculous pack luck, every time he opens he gets something decent.

    Imo it’s account based, which is why it seems like some people get all the luck.

    No chance that it is random. I've never packed a 90+ player in 5 years of playing FIFA.

    No way is it random. I always seem to get better players in packs if I don’t play for a couple weeks or month, then sign in and open a couple packs or do an SBC. It’s as if they’re trying to entice me to get back playing. Probably sounds ridiculous but it seems to be the case with me

    Of course it is random, people dont understand probabilities and keep whining about pack luck

    Don't agree. Packs aren't truly random. Not even close. If you calculate the odds of packing the same non rare 76 rated guy in 3 times in 5 packs, you'd come to the conclusion that it's next to impossible with the amount of non rare 76 rated cards in the game. Yet you see it happen in almost every pack opening.

    I opened 24k of FP and decided to keep count of the amount of 84+'es. For 24k FP you can get 180 packs. The odds of a 84 rated card or higher are 4,7% if I'm correct. So with 180 packs, you should get about 8 (give or take). I got 2. Now of course, there are some people who get those 8 84's, but I dare to place a bet that there are far more who receive less 84's than the odds give you.

    Now, I'm not crying as I'm well aware of the risks when you spend money on this game. But I don't believe the odds in the slightest.

    And I hate the fact you make a clean tackle and the ball bounces straight back to your opponent. It happens 80 times out of 100. That new "50/50" system might need a little look into it. But that's another topic of course.

    I think new accounts perhaps have different multipliers than old accounts. I still think any account is crazy lucky to pack an icon or ronaldo etc

    Prob like 1.1 chance on new rather than 1 chance on old
