    They also spend thousands on FPs just to get one.

    It would make a lot of sense for EA to boost their packs to entice the viewers to spend

    However it’s more likely down to the amount of packs they open, they open packs on and off camera

    Castro had 342,174 Fifa Points last night. How much is that spent to get that amount, and for one, is it his own spending or EA donating them to him

    He managed to get Mbappe TOTY to show for his efforts ;)

    Lol another ridiculous thread. OP probably spent £10 and is salty he didn’t pack a toty. Think Castro did over 160k fifa points last night and got toty Mbappe. I wouldn’t call that a redlist

    I watched a couple of YouTuber's burn through 100+k of fp then say about loading more points on for the rest of the TOTY packs after packing nothing of note that's scary how they can say that, I understand that they will be subsided by sponsers, donations etc and need it for their content but it puts into perspective the chances of the common guy packing one of these cards if you don't throw a bucket load of money at EA..

    For the regular person it’s all to do with luck. I packed TOTY messi last year. You-tubers on the other hand are blasting 100k fifa points in a couple hours. Of course they will eventually hit something when you’re spending that much on packs. Batson had like 400k points in his account last night. I’d be pissed if I didn’t hit something with that amount too.

    What are you guys expecting. Obviously they pack more and better players than the average consumer. They spend far more money on packs. Imagine everyone who spends like a 100 quit on packs, gets a TOTY. They wouldnt be that rare anymore and therefore would be far less valuable.

    It's nothing to do with being a fanboy, 160K FP is around £1000, they are just opening an insane amount of packs and still mostly getting nothing. £1000 and people are like "but he got TOTY Mbappe" without actually thinking "holy **** ****, he just spent £1000 and only got TOTY Mbappe and a bunch of crap. 1 usable card from £1000, LOL".

    I watched Fuji opening the 100K packs at 7pm last night, he burned through over 30K FP and got IF Donnarumma, Higuain, Veratti and a couple of other 86/87. He was saying stuff like "that's not bad, we got 4 or 5 walkouts" while I was thinking, "you just spent over £200 in 5 minutes and didn't get a single card you could use in your team".

    It's absolute madness but EA have conditioned so many people into thinking this is acceptable. So many gullible people out there pouring money into this thing and getting nothing back. It may be the best business model ever, :joy:

    I wish people would realise that these streamers are a major problem for the game, with the number of packs they are opening EA have no choice but to make the pack weights so low, it really hurts the normal guy that is willing to spend 12K FP, it lowers their chance of pulling anything decent.

    This is the epitome of common sense. 1000% agree!

    Anyone in here watch match of the day? Each 90 minute match is condensed down to around 5-10 min segments aka highlights. Essentially, there's quite a lot of a football match where not that much happens so they cut it out.

    Well, this may come as a revelation to some of you, but these youtuber do something similar, they spend hours, and thousands opening packs. They then edit it down to 5-10 minutes of screamy drama for weak minded people to buy into the lies that they are telling.

    Imagine a world where people didn't believe everything they see and read.

    This.

    I actually thinking spending £1000 on this and not being able to afford every TOTY and every player is absolutely silly, I still can't quite believe people actually spend these amounts on a game, especially when the quality of game is as bad as fifa is

    Its common sense if someone opens 100k fifa points and someone else opens 12k fifa points who do u think is going to get more good players?

    Closing this and filing under "redlist rubbish".

    There's no such thing.
