The Great Pack Weight Scam - Proof Inside

I saw a few posts on twitter starting to gain traction and thought I’d share it. Now we all know the TOTS pack weight is nothing short of disgusting, but here’s the proof of how bad.

On PS4. There were 120,000 packs during lightning rounds at 7/8pm and other “offers” in store too.

It doesn’t take a genius to work out that the prices are absurd for these players, but the reason is they’re just not being packed. The drop rate is borderline illegal.

Reus - 75 games on PS4. Half a million packs + opened and Reus has played 75 games - WTF.

Lewi - 100 odd

Sancho - 100 odd

Havertz - 100 odd

Even someone who should be more obtainable and would have been 150k-200k tops last year has just 200 games played - Jovic

I know I’m a moaner, but I can’t get my head around the fact it’s almost June and EA are getting away with this! You have little to no chance of ever using these cards. I just don’t understand why?

    I agree with this, prices are absolutely absurd. Yeah they are high rated cards but most people would rather spend 2 mil or more on an icon than a random tots card

    This really just puts it into focus. It’s a weekend and those cards have been in packs for almost a full day. Only 70 odd matches for Reus?! WTF

    The stats take a while to update and only count the cards that are listed on the market I think

    Probably the only reason they included lower leagues. “Hey 20% chance of a TOTS.” Opened 400 packs the other day and got 4 alissons, 1 ederson, and 1 Maddison.

    I love how this year they have added the percentage change to the store bought packs but it just says "TOTS" not "top league TOTS". We all know that if is says 10% change of a TOTS what is really means is 9.99% change of a POR1 TOTS and 0.01% chance of a GER1 TOTS.

    You have a 14% of packing the GK with the 70k min bin and 10k discard and 1%> for the rest.

    its never been this bad...

    last year it was left right centre

    and there wasn't such a gulf between the good and bad blues...

    and remember the years where people packed loads in one pack?

    my mate packed TOTS reus and Lewandoski in one single pack fifa 15 i think, it was an amazing pull but nowadays it probably won't even happen.

    If you believe @James Libby logic, TOTS is no longer the “end of season event” (despite it being the end of the season) :D and something else is coming after. Yeh mate it’s called futties and that ain’t crashing the market

    Futties/festival of football was so much fun last year. The way things are going this year I'm expecting the opposite. The greed is at an all time high.

    I believe they're worried about this fp ban in belgium being implemented across the board so they'll bleed the customers for every penny while they still can. Thats why they're not even trying to hide how greedy they are...

    Is it REALLY that hard to believe - with all that we've witnessed - that TOTS isn't being treated in the same way by EA as in previous years? That was really my only point.

    Now, I do think we could see something BEYOND just Futties so as to continue to milk us of as much FP as possible. Perhaps more PIMS? Another promo we've never had before? Note I framed this as merely a hunch, and it was not stated as fact.

    Is that really that crazy of a prediction?

    And by the way, I didn't say "end of season" I said "end of play cycle" - you should use quotes when you are, uhm, actually quoting someone verbatim you filthy casual.

    I don’t want anything special. Just give me last years tots. Packed 5 TOTS in 50 upgrade packs. I feel like that is reasonable. There has to be a FIFA point ban incoming.

    Pretty much what it is. EA have done it all year with every promo and people believe that TOTS would be different.

    Pack weight has been awful all year, very few special cards hit the market between the millions of players on each platform so the prices are crazy.

    I doubt those Futbin stats are accurate but even if they’re estimated it’s atrocious.

    They have access to the database, I’d say they’re pretty accurate

    I think it's a good insight, it won't include anyone who bought and is currently using them. Only the ones put on the market or if a player uses that import function

    I think you’ve had too much PIMs mate. I’d get back on the shandy if I were you.

    For some reason, I find your unique brand of obnoxiousness relatively funny. Carry on, mate.
