    Not a chance that it’s random. Getting this player 3 times in a row proves it. Clearly allocated a card to accounts and it’s just given the same pack over and over

    Jadon Sancho in the guaranteed Tots last year proved it

    No, that just proves his pack weight was high. Everyone was getting him. This is different per account. We know they weigh cards differently in the pack, probably based on average sale price in the last week or something

    It isn't luck at all getting the same icon 3 times in a row. It's serious be

    Rubbish response from them as well

    I though my luck was bad, when I got the only 2 mid icons I have back to back as dupes (Zanetti and Veron). But this takes the cake.

    Would the odds technically be different though if say someone before the first pack said they wanted Scholes, lampard and limanen and that's exactly what they got?

    Each pack has set odds for each based on weight, the trio above wouldn't be too surprising to pull and would only be noticed if someone actually predicted pulling them.

    Op obviously didn't want 3 klose but has made a thread because of his extremely bad luck at getting him 3 times.

    It's ❤️❤️❤️❤️ luck but for each pack klose would be one of the easier to pull.

    My mate recently packed Pele, r9 and gullit all untradeable, I couldn't believe it :D

    And yet, people still LOVES to gamble with Icon packs...

    This is the reason why we are getting so much gambling, and less Icon SBC's.

    To be fair I'm not complaining about getting Klose in particular....I just found it weird to get the same card 3 times. If it was Gullit or R9 3 times I still would have made the thread. Also the point of the thread was to bring to light the response I got from EA chat. Granted I understand the comments many have made suggesting that chat have no idea what they are talking about, but this type of thing is happening to many others it seems and the response from EA help just raises an eyebrow to the entire "it's just luck" conversation.

    That’s no coincidence, it’s just another example of a horribly manipulated game

    Yeah exactly it isn't a coincidence. It's a mess of a game riddled with bugs and glitchy servers. I did 3 in a row and pulled prime Hugo Sanchez, prime Beckham, and prime Roberto Carlos. They should make an exception for people who pull 3 of the SAME icon! At least compensate you with a mid or prime icon player pick pack ffs.

    Also, never trust a Jenifer with only one N in her name.

    3 I opened months apart last year I pulled 3 different versions of pirlo lol definitely nothing strange there
    If packs were random the odds on that must be massive
    Imo Definitely nothing random about it I'd never do an icon sbc again unless it's from swaps
    They need to give atleast a quick sell value from duplicate icons its way to expensive to do to get absolutely nothing back if u get dup

    In no way it's about luck. It's absolutely rigged. I just opened 4 mid/prime packs and packed Prime Del Piero and Prime Pirlo twice. So 2 duplicates in 4 packs. I'm not even gonna rage about it 🤣

    The fact they were all Italian wasn’t random either .

    I've packed the same icons in sbcs for three years in a row, Socrates, Ronaldinho, Zola, Schmeichel, Rijkaard and Butragueno.
    And in fifa 21 I've packed two mid eto'o and two mid Ronaldinho, all four untradeable.
    It can't be just about luck.

    Pack weight varies from day to day, so it’s not a terrible suggestion from the advisor

    I packed verratti in three consecutive party packs though, obviously spaced out over several weeks so no guarantees that waiting a few days will help

    @PaulDr but what are the odds of packing 2x Prime Pirlo and 2x Prime Del Piero out of 4 packs within 5 minutes 😂😂

    Why is that they are easier to pull? Surely a guaranteed icon pack should be exactly that you should have the same odds of pulling every single icon why should different icons have different pack weights?

    Got Giggs three times in a month last year. Veron I packed twice, sure there was another duplicate but can’t remember who. Packed Veron again last month and I’ve avoided icon SBC’s since as I don’t think I could handle getting him again.

    I jus did the prime pack. Have my own tin foil regime to open packs lol. But after the second same player. I would’ve stopped personally. Jus something I tend to do if I get same players repeatedly.

    didnt get dupes from prime and mid/prime but getting deco (prime) and okocha (mid) was close to the worse outcome as well.

    Another reason why I never did these before, and now also questioning my decission to save the swaps for the prime or moments pack ..

    Well rating and market value.

    Generally the higher the rating the rarer the card.

    EA want the more in demand ones to be rarer. I don't know the inner workings but I've always assumed the weight is partially attached to market price, there's a reason you will pull some 84's or whatever rating, far more than others.

    Mendy is fairly lowly rated and despite all the packs I've ripped through league sbc's I've got him once and most other 83's a hundred times.

    I understand that for normal packs but for a guaranteed version of a card pack (icon or promo card) in terms of fairness the whole pack weight thing shouldn’t exist. They should make it so that every icon has the same chance of being packed. It’s not like the normal packs where there’s a less than 1% chance it should be 100% chance of any icon regardless of their market value

    Interesting POV, but it aint coded that way.

    I think it is just bad luck. They crappy icons have a higher chance of getting crafted.
    e.g. it shouldn’t happen but my cousin rolled five 1’s out of 6 dice and we lost on a board game.

    its possible indeed. Plus, people are more likely to vent on a forum after a crappy pull than after getting a great one. Should take that into concideration as well.

    But still, I dont believe the chances of getting a Pele from a guaranteed icon pack are the same as getting Lineker, Gatusso or Okocha
