yeah they are rare, i wouldnt waste your money unless it was during happy hour, where you get 3x more chance to get an IF player, not sure when it starts though

I used MS points last night to open a Gold Rare pack and got an in-form player. This was around 10PM my time.. so that would be 3 in the morning in the UK. Wouldn't call that 'happy hour' time. I had opened roughly 10 packs prior to that with no luck. These cards are very rare, and its unfortunately just a crap shoot to get one in a pack.

no the 'happy hour' is something ea do for 2 hours a week where packs are cheaper and 3x more likely to get an IF, last year it was on mondays 6-8pmUK time. you were one of the lucky ones getting one!! i've opened about 25 packs and not 1 IF

To be honest getting and IF player is luck unless you have endless M$ points, but I got the IF player achievement by luck i opened a pack and it poped up, and I had no IF player unless Ipswich had an inform player since he was the only shiny one :L

I also picked up a IF player in a gold premium pack bought about 6 packs before getting him

Around 7.30 UK time (don't know if time matters)

Just glad I got it now, otherwise it would have driven me mad trying to get it later on, due to it being utter luck.

The more you buy, the more chance you have of getting one, of course! :)

i just really dont want to resort to having to pay for them, but playing games and trading to earn coins and then to then get nothing in a pack is killing me lol!

I know the feeling mate. I'm yet to get an IF card myself and I've paid nearly 2k in M$ points to get Gold packs. I'm just going to leave it, save up coins and try that way.

Same here, i have opened about 20 packs and no IF player at all. I know a few guys who actually got them in their free packs yesterday.

That's actually good as i have opened about 20 packs i think and the best i have got is Mcgeady from Spartak Moscow and a Juve player called Marchiso who were both 81's. Strangely i have had some silver players in the gold packs a as well. I hope this "happy hour" thing is back this year.

My luck with IF players is really quite astounding. I have bought 14 gold premium packs altogether and plan to buy 35 more as it is my birthday soon, In my 3rd every Premium pack I got an IF Van Buyten.(Bought using MSP) 6 packs later I received another IF card this one being Reus. This time the pack was bought with coins. Sadly both cards only sold for 10k each and they were a lot of them on the market. Probably around 50+. I hardly played Fifa 11 UT but comparing Fifa 12 UT to 10 it seems way easier to get lucky with IF players. On Fifa 10 I bought around 500 Gold Premium packs and from what I remember I only got 2 IF players. Those being Malouda and Ji Sung Park. I preferred it that way when they were very rare.

Seriously, there's nothing worse than opening up a Gold Premium pack only to realize the best card you got is like a 76. =/ I've probably opened (including my free packs) about 25-30. Best players i've gotten.... IF Reus (81), Lloris (85), Ribery (88), Anelka (83), Kompany (84). Apparently, EA thinks i'm French. =P

My luck is very similar to yours. About 20 packs or more got me an insane about of player contracts and fitness cards, best player would be Ivanovic. No sign of an IF card.

I got this by luck. I've bought about 10 or 12 special gold packs and i did get an In Form card, some guy i've never heard of.
