Now this may be hard to believe but it's 100% legit. Originally I invested about 900k in PL rare golds at 650-700 coins each before the sbc came out. I prepped 140 Premium upgrades from that and with recycling the non rares I must have opened close to 200 of them, plus a similar amount of PL upgrades with the non rares.
I first packed Alisson from 20 packs and then Trent around half way, only to then end up packing Alisson 4 times overall! I couldn't believe it, imagine my face seeing a Toty and then the Brazil flag each time, was gut wrenching, although yes I appreciate was still luckier than others with no toty, 3 times I put him in an Sbc!
Come Saturday I decided spend around 300k more bidding 900 coins on cards only this time I switched to gold upgrade instead of pl upgrade (Do this much better for higher rated's, plus an extra rare for recycling) to end up with a Duplicate Trent from a gold upgrade, that one was the most frustrating as I wasn't even limited to PL players but somehow packed another dupe. (I'm also the guy who packed a dupe Toty Ramos last year to so I couldn't believe the odds)
At this point I was around 1.2 m invested and had crafted Flash back Luiz, Moments Silva, Flashback Neuer and POTM Suarez, the last to as sbc fodder as I needed somewhere for high rated dupes, and two base icons, first one was Butagueno, the Duplicate Trent forced me into another one and I ended up with Garrincha, so I got very lucky with those two. So despite the dupes I was still content with my return, I was still luckier than people with no Toty although maybe a little envious of people who pulled a big player as thier first player whilst I got multiple dupes but still satisfied but again wanting that big pull.
On Sunday this led me to chase that "big pull" (Kante, VVD, De Brunye, Mane) I prepped another 50 so now I was 1.7m Invested and so many hours bidding, making packs, opening them and recycling them each time to not discard dupes which was a slow process, probably 15-20 hours in at this point grinding. Then after midnight on Sunday when I got a chance to open them it finally happened, with 20 packs left, literally moments after being trolled twice by a blue walkout (Laporte and Vertonghen) I see that Toty and French flag and I just smiled it was Kante! All those hours of grinding and it finally happened, after at a guess 300 of the Premium packs and hundreds of PL upgrades/gold upgrades, 4 Alisson's and 2 Trent I'd done it.
I probably would of prepped 50-100 more chasing that big pull aswell so it was such a relief , at this point I was satisfied and with 20 PL premium packs left just started to rip them open not expecting anything more, discarding the odd dupe and not 10 packs later I get Robertson! 😂 couldn't believe it and then things got crazier within 2 packs, so 3 toty in like 12 packs I get another Trent as which point I just had to laugh, wasn't even mad at this point just still buzzing from Kante, so just found the situation hilarious. (If not for Kante Yea I'd be abit salty at 4 Alisson and 3 Trent but now I didn't really have the right to complain) was just shocked 😲 😂
I actually still have 7 packs left as I'm waiting to 6 for another sbc as I'd rather not do another icon as I'm sure I used my luck up on the two I already got 😂
All in all one massive roller-coaster. This is kind of long so I will post pics below ☺
