Does the pack weight change towards the end of the year? I know there are more high rated cards now so chances improve slightly but the run of decent cards I’ve gotten in the last 2 weeks has been ridiculous and I wanted to know if this is usually the case towards the end of the game.

    No,it's only because more in packs and you are lucky. I opened a lot, and only got few good pulls. I had better luck throughout the year tbh...

    Pack weight is always higher at the end of the game because recency bias

    Yeah, but I'm pretty sure they raised pack weight this year especially because of EA Access coming to PS4 and luring in all the new players that have no clue.

    Scammy move imho. This stuff needs to get regulated (don't get me wrong, I like the current pack weight, but it gives newcomers a false sense of it)

    pretty sure EA should have been sued for this manipulation with pack weights...

    pure gambling / fraud

    Yep they want everyone to leave happy, and it seems to be working. A month or Two ago people were saying the game was dead but personally am enjoying it now more than ever. Seems very much alive.

    same for me.

    Now I have 2 superb teams and can play ANY opponent teams without any Rating gaps... no matter if he has Gullit/ R9/ CR7 etc....


    its only 2 good/ fun periods of FIFA FUT = at release (when everyone has cheap teams) and now...when most of us have TOP teams ...

    just more fairplay to me personally

    Yep, the try hards don’t like it because for the first time this season they have to play others on a level playing field. I guarantee the average customer is loving these cheaper prices

    Yep. I also have a team now that can compete. Nothing even fancy. Weghorst up top and a solid Halstenberg/Süle/Boateng/Da Costa defence and Neuer in goal.. that defence alone would have cost me a mill a few weeks ago..

    Usually G2 as I just couldn't complete with the old pure Icon/TOTY teams. Currently on my way to Elite, need 2 out of 6.

    Faced and beat a bunch of 30+ mil Icon teams abusing Croquettas that would have destroyed me a week ago.

    The packweight on the players is the same. It’s just there are 300 some odd special cards in packs. So yes. The packs are much, much better. But it’s because what was a useless 80 rated player before is a special card now.

    The weight have in fact been raised, when you look at the odds now it says 87+ has roughly 30% chance of packing when earlier in the year(even a few weeks ago) it was less than 5%

    If this is the case it should be illegal, they shouldn’t have the ability to alter pack weight at any point.

    That's because there are a lot more 87s pluses in packs now. How many of the 85 plus have special cards, dont have figures but imagine is very high percentage. Theyll all in packs.

    Been trash for me today after getting some good cards yesterday. I did the bundle SBC, e world Cup SBC, about 8 different teams from league SBCs, and Futties Hazard start to finish, and only got 2 ~30K TOTS, and 2 or 3 cheap non-TOTS specials, all of which I recylced into other SBCs.

    I've been pulling 2 or 3 TOTS players at times and still only coming out with 50k.

    Difficult to complain, but still. It's like :open_mouth: quickly followed by :|

    The same thang happened in fifa 18. They increase pack weight in July and up to middle of August to get people thinking that next years fifa will be the same and then once you buy the game you’re screwed cause pack weight goes back to normal and you’re lucky if you pack a cheap 84 rated player.

    Of course they have raised the pack weight on special cards. Yes there is a bigger chance of getting one but they have done it purely so that people open packs when fifa 20 rolls round. The cycle has ended for EA so they can increase pack weight so that people enjoy opening packs. At this stage they dont need to keep the market stable
