Though difficult to get good cards in packs, it’s still important to keep buying packs because the game only works when cards keep being inserted into the game through the store.
Which Pack to buy
Obviously it all depends on what FUTers want. For example, if building a bronze squad, players should buy a bronze pack. While getting more contracts and other consumables, consumables packs are the choices. However, most want the most expensive cards-Gold Packs. Which one?
It’s quite simple: buy an available Gold Pack with the lowest price for each rare player card. These are the only cards that can actually make someone rich and the other cards are almost worthless. To know which packs have the lowest price per rare card, players only need to divide the price by the number of rare cards basing on price table
Players should pay more attention to the category of Packs if there are other cards besides players. Generally, the best packs contain guaranteed rare gold player card, the Premium Gold Players Pack is two times more expensive than the Rare Players Pack or the Jumbo Rare Players Pack, for example. However, there are no distinct differences if purchasing with FIFA Points.
Where and how to buy
Usually, the store is the place where Packs are sold. Players can purchase either with fifa coins or points the right Packs including details like the number of rare cards each pack has.
When to buy
It’s not absolutely true to buy Packs during Happy Hour. A Happy Hour is a period of time when special packs available on the market. It may be just one hour, a full day or even a weekend. During the Happy Hours, Packs that have a lower cost per rare card are usually more attractive than the regular ones.
There are special Happy Hours named “2x Chance” that the chances of getting an IF card are two times higher than usual. But it’s quite rare. The Happy Hours will never be announced ahead of time. Most players may know if there is any Happy Hour in the main page of the FUT Web App or the consoles when it is active, or a few minutes before starting in the Twitter of EA Sports FIFA. It is impossible to know when will be the next Happy Hour but they are very common in these moments:
- Wednesdays between 4pm and 5pm just before the release of the new TOTW;
- Most of the weekends, usually during large periods of time;
- After a MOTM card release;
- During the Christmas period (last ten days of December and first two of January).
To buy Packs at the best time, players should avoid period between 5:30pm and 6pm of Wednesdays, or buy packs during good TOTW weeks or on TOTY/TOTS weeks. If success, the profit will be incredibly higher.
