Grinding elite is consistently not worth it. I can't and aren't complaining about my overall "pack luck" . I got Pogba from pre order packs and Salah tradable from rivals last week after a month of bad packs . This week went untradable and got a discard if and ucl Davidson Sanchez which was cool.
But I'm talking about the return you get from Elite in WL. I did get Ucl Farhmann in the 100k pack which is 30 k more than I normally get but shocking red picks again in Gignac, Plea and Rondon and another totw pack with 3 basically discard players. Grinding elite literally ain't worth your time, I do it for the rivals points, so I can play a handful of games and still get rank 3 in div 2. Had Better red picks last week from gold 1.
It's the totw packs that are shocking and need to be improved. 4/5 I've opened so far this year and I've had all basically discard players and a sif Suso that sold around 60-70k. This pack is supposed to be a reward for getting elite but because of totw's stacked with low rated played and no 81 min getting something decent from them is extremely unlikely.

I mean I've seen top 100 players open ultimate totw packs and get full on discards and maybe one 84
