Is there a real difference between G2 and G3 red picks?

I always play around 18 games to get 14 wins and stop there expect during PL TOTS I played around 25 games to get Gold 2. I have been also watching a lot of reward openings on Twitch and Youtube. Honestly I feel there is absolutely 0 difference between G2 and G3 red picks. The guaranteed major league pick and the extra 1 option are absolutely joke, as EA always fill that spot with GK, CB, or whatever cheap in the squad.

On the other hand, even without the guaranteed major league option, I almost always see at least one major league card in my G3 picks durint TOTS, except for only one pick in which I got Cesinha who is even more expensive and better than the major league options that most people get... Of course I have never got any god tier card from G3 picks, but I got decent number of useable cards (Renato Sanches and Kimmich for example) or high rated fodders with decent position (de Vrij and Manolas for example) - those results don't seem bad and even above average among those many G2, G1 rewards I have watched online.

So has anyone ever feel any difference between G2 and G3 picks? Or is it a real scam?

    So I guess there is really no point to play extra matches to get G2 or even G1, unless can reach elite which gives extra player pick, right?

    A few people in G3 got only 3 ROW players to choose from in each pack. I think it's worth getting gold 2 just to rule out this as a possibility.

    In theory there is, many of G2 including myself got utter trash in their picks though. I won't bother with G2 this weekend unless it goes really smooth

    I got G3 this week, could have pushed on to G2 but wasn't up for it. got all rotw 5x86 and an 88 for my picks

    I guess the issue is EA seems fill out the guaranteed spot with GKs or whatever cheap so I'm not sure if it is a win as those GKs are even cheaper than some nice ROW options...

    I see, sorry for you... Maybe I just got lucky and in all of my G3 picks during TOTS I got something that are at least okay fodders...

    I've had the same experience from G3, got plenty of good picks up until this week. Upamecano, benzema, depay all from G3, and from the couple times I got G2 my most useable was adama

    Guess it's all just luck of the draw

    Yes, same feeling for me. The only time I played to G3 I got GK Alisson and GK Henderson... So it seems that G2 or G3 doesn't matter. It's pure luck and the guaranteed major league option is just a scam to let you play more...

    Yeah there is. You get one guaranteed better pick with gold 2. No guarantees for gold 3

    I mean "real difference"... From what I learned, the guaranteed major league pick is usually fulfilled by putting a GK or cheap player in... So it is one guaranteed major league pick but not necessarily "one guaranteed better pick"...

    I’m normally g2 but only got g3 this weekend and my picks were Kimmich and KDB. I also. Had the choice of Carvajal in a pick. No difference for me.

    My rewards always seem to be better at g2 than g3. Could be to do with having 4 to choose from each pick instead of 3 and 1 guaranteed from the main league that week

    G3 this week, only had one 'Ultimate' choise. So yes, I feel it is beter to be G2 where there are these kind of red picks.

    I dont know how you can say 'it will be filled up with just a CB / GK' though, as yuo dont know which pick is your extra pick? Or do you mean, its always the last one that is bad?
