Do you think every account has the same pack weight?

Just interested to see peoples thoughts on this:

I believe Nep Packed his second Prime Icon of the year on his RTG yesterday along with the likes of UCL Bale, Pogba, KDB Varane amongst others this year.

We all know Dan has packed 5,000 players who sell for high values this year.

I believe Pugs has packed 2/3 Icons from what I have read on here assuming thats not a lie.

Are these just those that got "lucky" and we notice it because of how lucky they are, or do you believe some people actually have a higher chance to pack better players?

The obvious thing to happen here is those with good pack pulls to say no and those with bad pack pulls to say yes so try look at it objectively.

    Nope.

    I’m sure there’s something based on the spend of the accounts that affects the output, as well as gameplay.

    Most of the tradeable packs I have opened have been awful , with my best tradeable player from over 1 mill worth of packs being Matuidi but I still think it is random, as Ea would risk getting into deep trouble if they messed with the pack weights and I see no reason why they would do it. The only way to test this would be to do 10 mill pack openings on about 200 different accounts with different variables for each account, such as Div 1 player, Div 8 player, casual player who plays hardly any games, new account ect, and run a stats test but as if someone would do that.

    Took me eight and a half weeks to pack something over 30k, that was eight lots of g1/g2 rewards and like 35 leagues completed.

    The big Youtubers and Twitter accounts get better packs. Best way for EA to advertise spending cash on packs...

    There's no real proof of it but it definitely makes sense.

    I have always found inactivity and new accounts get better results from packs in order to keep them interested in the game/get back to playing it. Along with those who spend money compared to those who don't.

    It makes sense but if you've ever watched any streamer open a large amount of fifa points you'd realise it wasn't true

    I haven’t packed something tradeable over 100k for 3 years and I’ve got over 100 million coins value worth of packs in that time
    Surely this has to be something related to my account because it just is so far away from the odds

    I have a 2009 account that I'm active on every year, never bought fifa points, I've packed CR7, Suarez, Griezmann etc. this year which ruins all of those theories


    I do think there's a weird balance though where some accounts get better luck than others for whatever reason

    Exactly this. Packed nothing last year but smashed the game. Went on holiday so obviously didn't sign in for a few weeks then got toty Ronaldo... Mates made new accounts this year got considerably better pack luck

    It does really make me wonder though when its not random.. Just imagine a casino changing the odds per person based on income and time spend etc. Unethical and illegal for sure.

    Given what you buy has no actual value and still belongs to EA then I think they could get away with it.

    You still get exactly what the pack says you are going to get, lucky people get players they perceive to be more value for money, but selling coins is against tos so there's no actual value.

    No. A lot gets said about tubers having insane pack luck but they open so many packs you wouldn’t believe and their videos are edited so most of the time you only see their good luck.

    I was gonna vote yes, strictly due to the risk ea would take if it is not the same for all. Just imagine the lawsuit we will see if it is proven some sort of «fixing» of packs. We are talking jailtime for the people at ea, and a company in ruins

    That said; all the pulls says it is rigged

    You get exactly what the packs says you will get. Any perception of a better or worse pack is your own.

    There's no value.

    I am thinking it is a yes in this vote. All fair, and a probablility to pack something in a pack (for instance 85+). Everything else is just a too big risk for ea to implement.

    Still just look at the luck some famous accounts have. That makes me think it can be something going on here.

    It’s all luck based, there is no different between accounts, if someone is lucky then they will pack better items.

    I mean you keep saying this in threads but its utter trash and very misleading.

    Nepenthez has opened thousands of pounds worth of FP on his main channel and hasn’t packed a thing.

    No FP on his R2G and he’s packed and incredible amount of good things. It’s all luck based, if anything his YouTube channel is a walking reason to do a R2G.

    Uhhh don’t think so. Consistently says if there is any advertisement to not buy packs with FP’s this is it.
