Opened 16 x 100k packs with points for only 5 walk outs in return (only 3 were over 86)
Disgusting return for anyone spending money and imo why I believe it should be regulated very soon. Obviously I can afford to spend a bit but I feel for pack addicts or children with card details saved on their account who don’t know the value of money and just add points based on how easy and accessible it is

    omg thats 16x 2000 points =32000 points. which is uk pounds is around the £300 region i think

    WTF dont care how much money you got , what a complete and utter waste , you could have done some good with that money

    Each to there own i guess :)

    Don't think the guy wants to hear this

    Think of it like this if everyone kept buying packs like this fifa will never evolve and the user base will never get a better fairer experience. Because EA will feel they dunt have to improve on any level.

    What is the point? Look like it's just an addicted. Game is almost dead and you'll have the same result at WL even with gold 83-rated meta-team. Even if you want to have a really good team you don't need to spend money at FP..

    Before you buy that pack, really think of the odds and what kind of player u will pack that is game changing.

    Unless u hit that Mbappe or Neymar, none of the TOTS players will change ur FUT experience. u hit the odd 200-300K player. whats next?

    Id suggest looking at twitch channels and following some great traders. There is this twitch streamer who made 1 mill coins in a week . Granted you have to put in the work but its much more rewarding as compared to buying fifa points.

    I remember buying coins / packs in fifa 14 but when u get that many, the game becomes pointless. Its more rewarding to trade your way up rather than spend money on the game.

    Well what are the odds of opening 16 100k packs with a 25% shot of a TOTS card. Any of our mathwizkids can do the math on this.

    Tbh if someone spends that much money on a game EA should be making sure they get something good, pack weight is an utter disgrace and the fact you can only gamble with FIFA points and not use them to purchase something specific is even more of a disgrace.

    Effective FIFA points are the same as buying chips in a casino.

    You could expect this outcome. Pack odds are criminal, keep that in mind the next time you'll feel tempted to throw more money at this game. It's just not worth it unless you just enjoy the thrill of opening packs. But if that's the cast you wouldnt make such a thread.

    We can all agree that it's an emberassement and you should get a decent return after spending hundreds of pounds/euro's, but we have been agreeing to this ever since FUT was created. That doesn't make any difference to EA as people keep spending anyways. Can't blame them for milking the cow as long and as hard as they can.

    You’re right, but the point addicts will say otherwise and make you out to be the bad guy 😂

    Opened one because of your pack luck. Out walks Alessandrini with behind him Benzema 2 87’s and 4 85’s. So thanks for giving away all the luck to non spenders( opened with coins.)

    Yes one can do what they want with there own money, but if you come on here afterwards and complain about what you received then he needs to be open to everyone’s opinions, and same with other posters

    When u look at the price of the market buying packs with points is a complete waste of money and he learned his lesson

    Rewards on this game all round are rubbish always shafting players with crap icons and dupes when you have to put a lot into it
    It’s my first year on fut and it can be disheartening, not expecting Ronaldo every pack but they could up the chances a bit

    How people even try and debate this is unreal. We’re all getting scammed here that’s the point. It’s his money, like it has been my money in the past and we can sure spend it whatever way we want to. That being said it shouldn’t mean after you’ve spent so much money you’ve got nothing to show for it. That’s what’s wrong. They ❤️❤️❤️❤️ with pack weight for a start during big promos. Have you seen how hard it is to pack a big TOTS card? I’m sorry but if you decide to spend £300 on FP then you should have a higher chance of packing something, so as you open one pack it should increase the odds/chances of packing something big, so if you keep opening those 100k packs with each one the percentage of getting that Neymar or Mbappe or whoever should increase. Once you get a big pull it should reset back to beginning. Yeah you can say it’s pay to win but the option to be pay to win is there and always has been. But punishing those that wish to spend money (not thousands like YouTubers etc) and get nothing it’s just not on.

    Wasn’t complaining that I should be guaranteed something was more so there should be a threshold for money spent or ar the very least let people just purchase these cards so they know what they’re getting. Spending 3 times what the game is worth retail price for an in game purchase and not getting anything of value? Cmon

    If you bought £300 of lottery tickets you probably wouldn’t win it. Same thing. It’s random and you knew that before you wasted the money.

    If you win the lottery your life has changed forever and you know what the odds are.

    We are talking about virtual cards and a company being so tight they can’t even reward someone for spending lots of money on the game. It’s outrageous and it’s the only way people can get the top cards in the game.

    You got what you paid for, those packs, and you knew the odds of top pulls were low yet you made the choice to buy them anyway.

    A fool and his money...

    Don't think anyone should be calling the op out, it's not a nice feeling when you realise how much you've wasted on packs. Just learn from it and don't fall into the trap again.

    The pack weight this year has been the worst in all my 5-6 years of playing Fifa. Have genuinely lost interest in rewards as well, they don't motivate me anymore because there will never be anything good.

    I'm one bad gameplay or toxic game away from doing "pack suicide"..

    You can already guess from the name people gave this desperation measure that nothing good is ever to come out from opening packs.

    And you know what the odds are when you open a pack? Everyone knows it’s random, so you take the risk that you will get nothing. Best thing is to not spend real money on a mere chance of winning a virtual card. If you really want the top cards you can trade and you’ll be guaranteed to get one. Takes time and time fort though, unlike the lottery of spending £300 on packs.
