Has anyone had enough patience to wait for full TOTY before pack opening?

I barely hanging on. I keep wanting to open just a few. NO. BAD RAYS. Wait one more day...

And the thing is I really love the pack opening animations on console, so I will try to force myself to wait to open packs on consoles when I get home from work tomorrow evening (rather than using Mobile App to open the packs).

TOTY Kante just waiting for me in one of those packs :#

    Yep, I've been good. I really have very few packs to open compared to most, so maybe that's why they aren't burning as big a hole. I think I'll have a few over 20 after I get my 3 WL packs later later. In other words, I'm not expecting much! (although this year has been my best pack luck ever, so you never know!)

    I also kept mine, nothing crazy as I'm only a division 5-7 player for now so no WL rewards, but I kept all the ones from the Calcio SBC, and 2-3 weeks of MM. I've like 50 or so packs. Also doing some PL upgrade, your post about your 25 packs made me realize that they will still be there from firday, so I can re-use the useless players to make a bit more. Even if the odds of a toty player are super low, there are enough players in the PL that I would enjoy playing that it's worth it, and it means I'll be ready for the league sbc. I'd be happy with any of the toty obv, + DDG, Hazard, Pogba, Courtois, David Luiz, Aguero . I probably wouldn't play Sanchez, Ibra, Ozil , etc, but there are still enough 86+ to kinda cover the cost of these, they would be useful in future sbc's.

    Cool cool. I had some pretty nice pulls last time I stocked up on 20 Premium Prem packs. And yeah even if you don’t get the exact player you want, there’s a good chance you’ll at least find some good SBC fodder (a good number of 83s and 84s for sure). And yeah I’m planning to recycle my unusable lower rated players into the regular Prem Upgrade SBC, and then back into the Premium Upgrade if I can.

    I made sure to have all my Upgrade SBCs done before I posted that... didn’t wanna have everyone rushing to get those 600-650 bid rare golds :# but I hope you didn’t have too much trouble getting yours. I had a pretty good method down for getting the players quick. PM me if u wanna know.

    Probably a bit of a waste spending 180k coins on untradeable packs, but I’d rather do that than lose real money on FP hoping to pack TOTY

    I’m a D5-6 player and can’t do WL, but SB still gives me decent enough rewards not to sweat losing a couple hundred k coins

    Have 57 packs stored and 12k points waiting for the entire team to be in packs. I’m hoping this will be the 4th year in a row that I pack a TOTY player. 15 was Ronaldo, 16 was Neuer, 17 was Pique.

    Yep... it's been no problem. I have 65 packs to open - and I have a trip this weekend.

    Because I am into drama, I am actually not going to open the packs until I get back home on Sunday night so I can do it on my console since my only access from Friday AM on will be with my iPad on the webapp.

    Lol i feel ya. I’m always a bit disappointed when I get a good pull on webapp or mobile app bc I know I missed out in the board and/or walkout.

    They gotta improve pack opening animations off console :#

    That’s a long wait till Sunday tho! U can cheat and open one or two on webapp :)

    I managed to do so not through will power, but by accident. have a bunch of unassigned 83's so I haven't been able to open any packs. The thing is I have no idea how many are left in the unassigned, seems like no matter how many I sell there's still at least 50 left

    if not for that I def would have blown the points. have 12k that I'm gonna spend during full team release... assuming my unassigned pile didn't turn infinite somehow :joy:

    I was never going to pack a TOTY and didn't have packs saved so I just opened my rewards and finished SBC Vieira

    Then packed this beauty from the 100k pack that Vieira gave me :)

    Got 107 saved, gonna have pack splurge and complete Ronnie sbc tomorrow so should be fun. hopefully build another 30-40 81+ packs as a go and also open the packs from the icon sbc. Not expecting anything amazing but gotta be in it to win it I suppose.

    Lol if you have glitched an infinite supply of 83s I suppose there is no need for you to ever open packs the rest or the year :D

    finally, it turned to 47 lol. Was beginning to think I had broken something.

    I guess it will take a little will power yet to wait for tomorrow's full release
