    You are wrong. I was in the game and didn’t get the chance to purchase the pack as it was never in my store to purchase. It wasn’t a case of me missing it. I simply wasn’t provided with the opportunity to buy it [/quote]

    It was only shown as a “Hero pack” if you had English as your selected language (game and app).
    In any other language that pack was an untradable RTTK Loan pack advertising a RTTK loan and a few rare gold with three of them 82+.
    That was the pack that was intended to be release but ea messed up. It had the one hero in it, tradable, no additional cards. So it was there for everyone only with different names.
    [/quote]

    I live in the UK and my language is set to English and I can guarantee the pack did not show up in my store at any point. I checked the store at 6pm and there were only three regular packs in store. Prime gold I think was the best.

    Honestly the tears are so pathetic.

    It was up for under 20 mins.

    Many people will have pulled bad hero’s that were selling for less than the pack.

    A few people will have got lucky.

    It was removed.

    Cards dropped sharply.

    Please keep in mind this happened like 6 hours ago, by next week it’s old news and all of the hero cards will have rebounded to roughly where they were.

    Less than 10% of the player base will have “benefitted”

    More on the forums admittedly because it was broadcast here.

    People aren’t at a disadvantage, they’re just annoyed that they haven’t had the same opportunity.

    Do you cry about the thousand people that packed an icon today but you didn’t? Of course not, maybe you spent more than they did, again not complaint worthy.

    It’s a mistake, people make mistakes.

    Collect your tears in a glass, drink them back up and save them for an actual tear worthy event

    I honestly don't get how you think people aren't at a disadvantage.

    People lost an absurd amount of coins if they weren't on at that time because they didn't get the hero pack.

    People who opened the pack will get compensation now, thus increasing the supply and making them worth far less.

    Then there are people who did this:

    5kobs7rfwd1s.jpg


    So you're either just trying to troll, you don't understand simple economics (which I hope this is the reason) or you're just trying to be edgy

    People who opened the pack won't get compensation - they've not lost anything.

    And no-one can lose coins by not getting the pack. You can argue that they've not gained any, but they're individually not in a worse position.

    Ginola was 2.67m on Wednesday, dropped to 2.33m before content yesterday. So the increase in supply has just accelerated the declines which were already happening.

    Yes, it's a massive error, and yes, the value of the cards has dropped, but you had Ginola before and have him now, so the harm to the individual is minor.

    People who opened the pack, myself included, will probably get compensation of the same pack but this time untradeable as it was advertised as untradeable in the store, rightly or wrongly 🤷‍♂️

    No way EA give people a new pack. The pack was on improved terms. You got a hero card. If EA start compensating people who have already greatly profited and crash the hero
    Market further, resulting in more huge coin losses for people, it’ll be the end for many.

    Anyone wanting compensation for this is a joker

    Unfortunately this is what happens, happens all the time so people who opened the pack will get an untradeable version

    I got the pack and I got Ricken. There was also a TOTW one that was listed as untradeable but was tradeable. Not seen any mention of that. Got Claus. Made 40k total. Lucky but not lucky. I only did them as they were untradeable so hoping I get new packs (with better contents)!

    It’s a legal issue because the way it was shown and worded they have to give them a new pack as not doing so leaves them open to prosecution as the the pack was meant to be untradeable and it was tradeable. This always happens this way even though it’s better they have to do it.

    The unfair part is not allowing everyone else to benefit from it

    I don’t agree that the ones lucky enough to have access to the pack should be compensated. That’s just ludicrous. I can also come to terms with the fact that if you weren’t online at the time you missed out. However I was never even provided with an opportunity to buy the pack in the first place as it was never in my store. That is quite simply unfair.

    It makes absolutely no sense to give everyone else the opportunity to buy this pack. It was a mistake, you were unfortunate enough not to benefit from it. If they release the pack to everyone you destroy the hero market again. Harming all those who own heroes.

    This would make everything worse for everyone even those that get to buy the pack.

    So the solution to the problem is let everyone buy the pack?

    So all of the heroes crash again, which people have bought (essentially with real money). So these people lose out through no fault of their own.

    Or as other people are saying compensate those who bought the pack as it was listed as untradable. Again this increases the number of heroes on the market. Crashing the heroes.

    If the market fails and there is nothing valuable in packs, no one buys FIFA points and EA lose profit. They don't want this.

    Wiping billions of coins off the market with another hero price crash is not good for those who have put in time so far.

    This is on a whole different level. None of those are available for 25k and tradable.

    It doesn’t matter what level it is. They wouldn’t be able to allow the packs or sbcs to be available to a few and worse not make it available to lots of others.

    The thing that blows my mind and I’m not sure why it still does after all these years is the fact they are a faceless unresponsive mess. The Haaland SBC it’s a week later and nothing, but there’s nobody anybody can ask.
    I work in the automotive industry and if I told a customer they would have their problem solved “in the coming days” I’d get destroyed. These things should have a time frame attached to them.

    No doubt, this is the biggest mistake in recent years.
    Unfortunately for all of you who did not open the pack there won’t be any compensation.
    You did not buy anything hence there is nothing wrong with your purchase (it never existed).
    There are two ways ea compensates if they compensate:

    #1 people who bought the pack will get an untradeable pack because that is what the icon on the pack in store was stating.

    #2 in any other menu language besides English the pack description was:
    Contains 5 rare gold players (3 guaranteed 82+), a Base Icon loan and a RTTK loan. All untradeable.
    So this pack has to be given to the ones who purchased it.

    My guess is that ea chooses option #2 to compensate cause it won’t harm the market as much as option #1.
