    No. I opened all packs from today's SBC + mega from season progress. The best is a Kompany worth 1.5k. Nothing else over 82. It's plainly atrocious for every one.

    Pulled Allison and Pogba from todays MM, my total FP bought will be 20-30 dollars, so guess not

    No of course it is not.

    But people will now tell you it is...

    I do not believe the odds for purchased packs are the same as their equivalent for rewards though.

    None are listed for free packs and EA have no obligation, unlike the money packs which they take a lot of heat for.

    I’ve purchased a few points and got nothing of note. My mate who’s played maybe half a dozen games, purchased no FIFA points and got Mbappe in his first ever pack 🤷‍♂️

    The fact that it's not disclosed properly obviously means there is something weird at play.
    What's sad is that you're actually better off going to the casino then opening a pack on FUT

    Some people say buying packs makes your luck better, others that ea try to lure people into buying fp’s by giving those that don’t nice rewards.

    Most people get a pile of poo really and only mention anything when they get a good pull

    My best pull was djene from MM and that other pack. And one 82.the rest lower.

    I buy fifa points every fifa. This is the first time i've held back on buying. Since pack weight is poor and value of anything packed was even lower in the begining

    So no.. Buying fifa points wont make you pack more good stuff, more likely to be the other way around to get you to spend more

    I’ve bought FIFA points and pack luck has always been terrible. Actually happy packing 83 Pickford earlier as usually get way worse. Being good at trading is the only reason I have good players.

    In all honesty, there are probably a number of algorithms at work.

    I skipped 18 and 19, when I returned for 20. I spent about £28 on points to get me started then bought nothing. I pulled Salah, Mane and Mbappe among a load of other decent pulls.

    I then "enjoying my pack luck" started to spend a few £. Probably spent about £150. And my luck has been woeful.

    Maybe I have had all my luck, maybe they sucked me in. Conspiracy theory , who knows.

    Funny you say that because i've never bought fifa points except this year. This year I've packed players that are worth in total about 4m.

    I dunno, if I was a business and I knew certain players were spending money, i'd definitely give them better rewards, then they will buy more packs because they might expect to carry on getting good stuff.

    Of course i'm just a sly greedy bugger though

    I hadn't spent a penny this FIFA before Black Friday.
    I had packed lots of high-end cards including CR7, Kante, Pogba and Reus. I bought 2 or 3 packs on BF and have had peanuts since.

    People that don’t spend say you get better packs if you do spend, so it keeps you spending.

    People that do spend say you get better packs if you don’t spend, as it entices you to start spending (Makes you think packs are better value then they really are)

    The fact is packs are awful and the vast majority of people pack nothing. Some people are lucky and pull a Ronaldo or something. This could be because they buy packs, or because they don’t, or because they have blonde hair,or because they’re over 6 feet tall or any random thing. More likely it’s because someone has to pack a Ronaldo and it has nothing to do with some nefarious plan by ea as the truth is simple:

    People that spend money on Fifa will likely continue to spend money regardless of pack luck
    People that don’t spend money on Fifa will likely continue to not spend money on Fifa regardless of pack luck.

    This has to be true. Ea knows I spend tons on this game and I get hardly anything good. They know I’m addicted to opening packs.

    Your proving the point. If ea knows your a repeat customer, then why would they up you luck. Compared to someone who only dumps a little bit of money, ea hoping they spend more.

    If there was any difference, it would be more obvious to the people who do spend.

    Never spent a penny and packed some decent stuff (TOTGS Ter Stegen, Mane etc).

    Strangely all my best pulls have come from Season Progress packs!
