I usually end up in either gold 3 or gold 2. Putting coins and luck aside i seem to get better player pulls from gold 3 pack than the gold 2 ones where u get the rare mega packs. Do u guys feel the same?

    Last year Gold 2 usually gave you a better return due to the extra consumables you got but now as prices of fitness etc. are rock bottom it’s not worth it unless you’re going for gold 1 or above. Though I did get Messi from Gold 3 last year :D

    Got absolutely nothing from gold 3 last year got lewa suarez and neymar from gold 2 last year so I'd prefer gold 2. But its all luck really you could finish bronze and get pele so its up to you...

    It would be nice if EA switches player pack rewards for gold 2 and gold 3. Gold 3 right now gives more value tossing the luck. If one is unlucky (which most of us are) a 50k rare players pack gives more in value than a 55k rare mega pack. So most of those who get gold 2 get a lesser value pack than gold 3. That is a bit unfair. Lesser rewards for better performance?

    Had no time to play last week, ended up in Bronze 1, packed Aubameyang.. :D

    It's just pure luck, I earned more with my Bronze 1 rewards than my mate who got rewarded top 100 rewards because he was falsely accused of cheating (if you don't count the 125k cash reward but only the players). He did get 11 informs though, but that still was not worth more than my 270k for Auba.

    Majority seems to agree that gold 3 rewards better than gold 2. lets hope EA does something abt this.

    Nope that’s a fallacious conclusion. Packing better players from gold 3 doesn’t make it better than gold 2. It’s all luck.

    Just like packing Messi from Silver 1 doesn’t make it better than Gold 1. Luck.

    All things equal, gold 2 gives you a better return in coins. Therefore there is nothing for EA to fix. Except your superstition.

    yeah but gold 3 gives you a rare players pack, while gold 2 doesn't. so the rare cards in rewards for gold 2 are more likely than gold 3 to be consumables or managers.

    fallacious is a good word though ;)

    Gold 3 might give you a better chance to get lucky, but as long as your luck is average Gold 2 is much better due to the guaranteed coins.

    I guess that 9/10 times you make more coins from Gold 2.

    well given that the coin rewards are pretty small in the grand scheme of things (make 300-400k a week trading so the 50k or so from these WL rewards is a pretty small), and the yield from an unlucky gold3 vs gold 2 is like 50k vs 65k....

    i'd rather have the better chance to get lucky and strike it big than another 15k

    Open 100 rare mega packs and compare with 100 rare players pack. The 50k pack gives u a better chance to pack a good player since consumables are included in the rare mega pack. And i meant most ppl prefer a player only pack rather than a pack containing consumables.

    Of course 100 x 50k is better than 100 x rare mega. However in Gold 2 you get TWO rare megas.

    Each rare mega gives you between 7 and 10 rare gold players, occasionally up to 12 players. Each 50k pack gives you 12 rare gold players flat.

    So 2X rare mega already gives you between 14 and 20 rare gold players, PLUS a lot of rare consumables.

    Yes, Gold 3 also gives you two mega packs, but chances are you'll only get 3-6 rare players from that, which is offset by Gold 2's rare gold pack.

    And not to mention the extra 15k coins from Gold 2.

    Realistically the pack luck is random, you just got luckier with gold 3. I prefer gold 2 due to the guaranteed 15k extra, given how ban pack luck is.
