Are we all being fooled by EA.

Everyone that’s still playing and doesn’t have all time meta squads is loving the EA pack weights at the moment where the packs are chucking out high rated special cards by the boat load.

But wait!!!!!
Lies lies and damn statistics.
Fifa doesn’t matter at this time of year and I’m sure pack buying is dead at this time of year which EA know as no one wants to chuck money at something that will be dead in 50 odd days.

So is this EA’s way of using pack weight data to skew information for next year when you are again going to be packing 75 rated donkeys?

Hmmmmmmmm

    Think back to early this year and 1/2/3 months into fut 19. Unless you were a Youtuber packs were horrendous, now that they want to sell people on buying fut 20 they roll out these Mystery ball packs full of good players. Genius by EA, obvious to us though.

    I agree that if you spend money buying FP now its pretty stupid.. But im excited that I can do sbc with rabdom players tgat were stored in my club abd get good packs and then get special cards. Everyone can enjoy at this time bro without spending money. I just did two player upgrades and got walkouts that eas fun tbh . Even if the players were untradable and not going to be used it was a jice feeling packing UCl players since i never packed one when the promo was out . Also afut birthday looked pretty cool.

    They did the same last year, up pack wieght at the end of the when for most of the year its been rubbish, give people recent memory's of packing insane players so when Fifa 20 is out people spend money. Obviously that's when pack wieght will go back down

    Honestly the best period to open packs is just at the very beginning. I remember Kondogbia being 30k the first month and martial 20k . Tbh its your best bet . Plus the market is at need of players so yea even if you pack a decent 83 you made money . Im against spending money on the game but if you are going to spend might as well do it at the beginning imo

    Pack weight is insane at the min in order to lure everyone into a false sense of security.
    Last night in every pack I opened, I had at least one decent tots card and a Europa motm card.
    Not gonna bother selling them as I don’t need anything so they are either sbc fodder or something new to mess about with

    Demand rises and falls based on the cycle of the game. Ea increase and decrease the 'value' of players based on that. Makes perfect sense.

    The same thing happened in fifa 18. Pack weight was great in July and 1st half of August and the reason is cause they want you to pre order fifa 20 and then once fifa 20 starts, the pack weight goes back to normal and you’re lucky if you pack an 83 rated player. It’s like a casino letting you win once to keep you coming back for more.
