Upgrade Packs...

Okay so tonight I did about 70k worth of PL upgrade packs a mixture of both. (Obviously I did more as I recycled players but they didn’t come out of my initial cost) I didn’t buy the players, I already had them.

6 x Player packs
8 x 7.5k packs (more of each after recycling players)

Anyway I packed:

3 x IF’s (one duplicate) 35k
Aub 140 k (let’s use 87 sbc value at 25k)
Vertonghan/Orzil/Ederson 65k
Few 83/84 plus fitness 15k

So that is a total of about 140k (far more if you count Aubas actual price) so that is a return of double of what I have invested back in players, and with POTM tomorrow and the Icon SBC’s these are players I would have to buy at cost.

My question (long winded way of asking) is actually going out and buying 80k of NIF’s at discard value and running them through another Leagues SBC upgrade an actual cheaper way of getting higher rated cards for bigger SBC’s or have I just got lucky with the return on what I’ve done tonight?

    I believe this is exactly why Casinos are so successful.

    You were lucky because I did about 10 upgrades and the best I got was a 81 rated IF.

    So basically I got lucky with a few good pulls, shame it would of been a cheaper way to get Prime Best (or POTM if the cards worth it)

    You were lucky. Almost done for today with ~40 La Liga upgrades done. After about 34 without a walkout, I got Navas in my 37th and Costa.

    If I do any tomorrow, will be jumping between Prem and La Liga. Might have better luck that way.

    People opening 2 packs and packing a TOTY. Such is life.

    34 without a walkout is shocking. 😢

    Did about 70, maybe more, 2 player packs and La Liga premium packs. Used around 400 players from my club (I think) and recycled the rest from the packs. Best pulls were

    Toty VVD
    Toty Ramos
    Salah
    Ter Stegen
    Umtiti
    Hamsik
    Iniesta
    4 discard ifs
