Has there ever been any insight or transparency in terms of the drop rate for players? The current percentages EA provides is meaningless. Has there ever been anyone (a former employee of EA for example) provided any information on drop rates?
The obvious approach - is a particular ratio assigned for every pack opened. For example, Ronaldo could be one in every millionth gold rare player packed and James Maddison could be one in every ten-thousandth gold rare player pack (this is hypothetical).
What has got me interested is whether they alter the drop rate or ratio depending on the value of player? I seem to pack Lautaro Martinez and Depay on a regular basis (and they are consistently one of the cheapest 84 rated players on the market). However this (on meaningless anecdotal evidence) appears to change during TOTS as they are both very expensive (Martinez about a mil currently).
If this is the case - do you think it's okay for EA to alter the ratios depending on the value? It would be good to get people's thoughts or insights.
