My Experience With Quite Ethical and Quite Fun Surprise Mechanics During TOTS

FIFA19 9 - My Experience With Quite Ethical and Quite Fun Surprise Mechanics During TOTS
Loading...

I saved up 20.4m worth of packs and opened them over the course of TOTS, with most of them being opened during Ultimate TOTS. Keep in mind that this pack opening would have cost $3,400 USD if done through FIFA points! I thoroughly enjoyed the surprise mechanics I experienced throughout the entirety of TOTS. Below are all of my notable pulls (specials and walkouts only), value of packs opened, estimated return value of all cards, etc.:

Packs Opened for MC/EFL: 1925k

Est. Return: 1345k (70% return)

89 TOTW Bruno Fernandes

86 Verratti (Base)

86 TOTW Benitez

82 TOTW Fernando

87 Navas (Base)

86 Otamendi (Base)

88 TOTS Pablo Hernandez

89 Mats Hummels (Base)

80 TOTS James Norwood

85 Luis Hernandez (Icon) – From a 10k pack, 1st icon this year after MANY packs

EFL Guaranteed Pack: 84 TOTS Reece James

MC Guaranteed Pack: 89 TOTS Felipe (15 players I would have been okay with at the time, didn't get one)

Upgrade Packs Opened:

94 Silver Player Upgrades

2 Rare Gold Player Upgrades

Pulls:

N/A

The return was MUCH more than the usual 25-35% and overall, I was happy with the pulls.

Packs Opened for EPL/Saudi: 170k

Est. Return: 70k (41% return)

Upgrade Packs Opened:

2 Rare Gold Player Upgrades

10 Player Upgrades

16 81+ Upgrades

Pulls:

86 Otamendi (Base)

86 Matic (Base)

86 Enzo Ferrari (Base)

Saudi Guaranteed Pack: 83 Al Zubaidi (the worst possible)

EPL Guaranteed Pack: 93 Fernandinho (Wanted a good ST, CAM, or TAA but still better than a GK or Maddison)

I didn't open enough packs up to get a good sample size, struck out on the upgrades, and Fernandinho still has 0 games played for my club to this day.

Packs Opened for Bundesliga/Liga Nos: 1475k

Est. Return: 730k (49% return)

92 TOTS Nico Schulz (first major league player pull)

90 Chiellini (Base)

82 RB Wondolowski (The first RB card I've ever pulled)

80 MOTM Hansen

86 Matic (Base)

87 Navas (Base)

86 TOTW Weghost

81 TOTW Marin

85 TOTW Firpo

89 Aguero (Base)

Upgrade Packs Opened:

5 Silver Player Upgrades

1 Rare Gold Player Upgrade

86 TOTW Wout Weghorst

95 TOTS Yann Sommer

91 TOTS Halstenberg

86 Muller

82 TOTW Alario

82 TOTW Alario

82 TOTW Petersen

88 TOTS Kampl

91 TOTS Halstenberg (3rd time)

Liga Nos Guaranteed Pack: 90 TOTS Seferovic (Not a player I wanted but was good SBC fodder)

Bundesliga Guaranteed Pack: 95 TOTS Werner (Desperately wanted Havertz, Reus, or Lewandowski but was still extremely happy that I pulled one of the best players from the upgrade)

A decent return yet again from the saved packs but the upgrades were really disappointing aside from the Da Costa and the first Halstenberg. So, so many duplicates but they ended up helping me complete the OP Henry SBC.

Packs Opened For La Liga/Super Lig: 570k

Est. Return: 240k (42% return)

Pulls from saved packs:

91 TOTS Onyekuru

84 TOTW Niang

76 TOTW Campo

Upgrade Packs Opened:

1 Rare Gold Player Upgrade

1 Player Upgrade

11 81+ Upgrades

Pulls:

93 TOTS Cazorla

Super Lig Guaranteed Pack: 77 Giovanni Dos Santos (because packs were glitched)

Super Lig Guaranteed Pack: 87 TOTS Kaldrim (5 I would have been okay with for fodder, didn't get one)

La Liga Guaranteed Pack: 93 TOTS Parejo (not terrible as far as fodder goes)

Didn't open too many packs and got a decent return again.

Packs Opened For Serie A/Eredivisie: 445k

Est. Return: 135k (30% return)

86 TOTW Tsygankov

88 TOTS Angelino

Pulls:

88 Insigne (Base)

92 TOTS El Shaarawy

Eredivisie Guaranteed Pack: 88 TOTS Onana (amazing)

Serie A Guaranteed Pack: 87 TOTS Manshitti (even more amazing)

Got fucked that week.

Packs Opened for Ligue 1/LATAM: 2625k

Est. Return: 1865k (71% return)

Pulls from saved packs:

84 TOTW Ruben Dias

86 Bonucci (Base)

85 Petit (Icon) – from 15k pack, 2nd icon this year also from cheap pack

88 Insigne (Base)

88 Insigne (Base Untradeable)

87 TOTW Arnautovic

88 TOTS Cantillo

Read:  Timed finishing is too OP

87 TOTS Aued

87 TOTS Andrada (Untradeable)

84 TOTW Ayhan (Untradeable)

81 TOTW Schick (Untradeable)

89 TOTS Delort (sigh… I wish that was the last troll flag, 2nd major league player pull)

84 TOTW Ruben Dias (Untradeable)

84 TOTW Rondon (Untradeable)

87 TOTS Andrada (Untradeable)

Pulls:

93 TOTS Benitez

88 TOTS Khazri

93 TOTS Thauvin

88 Buffon (Base)

93 TOTS Benitez

88 TOTS Khazri

LATAM Guaranteed Pack: 85 TOTS Cabrera (Decent fodder would have been nice, got the worst player)

Ligue 1 Guaranteed Pack: 93 TOTS Benitez (3rd dupe of an untradeable card destined to be fodder)

The upgrade packs were shambolic yet again. Struck out on getting Mbappe or Neymar during TOTY even after 10m worth of the good league upgrade packs and quit early this time. Upgrade packs aside, incredible return and a great week overall. Using all of the fodder combined with what I had in my club already, I was able to complete prime Vieira, prime Gullit, prime Eusebio, and half of prime R9 all in time for Ultimate TOTS.

Packs Opened for Ultimate/ROW: 13.19m (27 jumbo rare player and 26 ultimates included)

Est Return: 5295k (40% return)

87 Alderweireld (Base)

Ultimate Guaranteed Pack: 95 TOTS Alisson (Utter shit)

Bundesliga FUT Swap Guaranteed Pack: 92 TOTS Nico Schulz (Not one of the players I wanted but not mad)

13.19 MILLION COINS WORTH OF PACKS. TWENTY-SEVEN JUMBO RARE PLAYER PACKS AND TWENTY-SIX ULTIMATE PACKS. NOT A SINGLE FUCKING ULTIMATE TOTS PLAYER!!! Extremely ethical, extremely fun, and not surprising at all when you really think about it. At one point, I pulled 14 jumbo rare player packs in a row without a single walkout, and 4 of them didn't even have boards! Comparing last year's ultimate pack opening to this year's I pulled:

88 Mid Icon Vieira (from a 15k pack)

98 TOTS Messi (guaranteed pack #1)

98 TOTS Salah

97 TOTS Dybala

95 TOTS Hummels

94 TOTS Fekir

95 TOTS Ramos (duplicate from guaranteed pack #2, not that it mattered since I had so many good pulls already)

92 TOTS Walker

All of that out of 12.4m coins worth of packs. I pulled one of the best icons, 2 incredible players out of the guaranteed packs, and 5 tradeable Ultimate players, 3 of which held great value. This is a far cry from the shambolic, money-grabbing festivities that transpired this year.

I pulled a total of TWO (incredibly shitty) major league TOTS players out of 20.4m worth of packs. EA did make it up to me by blessing me with the presence of not one, not two, not three, but FOUR FUCKING ALISSONS in total this week. One from guaranteed packs, one from upgrades, one from a pack bought with FP (really smart decision on my part), and one from my red picks. Speaking of red picks, I have never received a single good FUT Champs card ever. Not in 17, not in 18, and certainly not this year, unless you count Donnarumma and Alisson as good picks.

I entered TOTS with the goal of finishing my dream team by the end of Ultimate TOTS like I always do. EA made that impossible by skewing the pack odds, refusing to give us the 25k league upgrade packs, and only giving us one guaranteed SBC per league with sickening pack odds and extremely inflated requirements. There is no word in the dictionary to properly describe how shit the gameplay is, yet they don't even attempt to keep us engaged with a fair chance at good rewards. I'm only one card away from "completing" my team now but I have no motivation to play this shit anymore. I've never felt so fucked over and defeated by a video game. I'm buying PES 2020. Fuck this shit, I'm out.

Thanks for reading and hope you have a much better week than I've had.

tl;dr

"Sometimes maybe good, sometimes maybe shit" about 90% of the time.
