What you're talking about is Happy Hour, when you have twice the chance of landing a TOTW player in a pack.

If you check out EA's weekly podcast, you'll find out when they are.

Any other way of finding out when happy hour is? I really can't be bothered listening to EA prattle on, I just want the inform player achievement.

Just to let you know you can get that achievment in single player career. Playing as Leeds in my career and my pro, Nunes and Snodgrass were all IN FORM players. Achievment unlocked.

Sorry, the way he worded it I thought he meant the other achievment for having 3 players in form. Its the "How great is that?" achievment not the inform player one, was a bit confused due to the wording of it, apologies.

I've only bought 3 Gold Premium packs so far, and got the cheevo with an IF player in the third pack.

Premiums have 3 rare cards in, so in theory you'd have more chance of landing an IF card in one.

One thing I did find in FIFA 11, was that the 25000 coin player packs just weren't worth the money. I bought about half a dozen of them, and only ever got 75/76 rated players in them.

I can confirm that the packs replenished at midnight GMT.

I hear that the best time to buy ToTW players is as soon as they are released. So 6pm gmt tonight, try your luck then and you may get Neymar or Lampard.

True dat. I saw that they updated the ToTW last night so I thought they were already available. Checked the store and it still had last weeks players listed. Lucky I checked. Got my 4200 MSP though. so 25 tonight then 10 more at midnight. Wish me luck. Could join my party if you want while I open :D.

Is the limit 25 per day?
So you could buy 25 at 11pm then 25 more as soon as it's midnight?

As far as I can tell that is indeed how it works.

so when exactly is happy hour and how much do the packs cost during this moment in time

MxPx
10-05-2011, 01:34 PM
I believe they cost the same...you're just more likely to get an IF player.

ah right i thought i read somewhere that they cost less n improved ya chances, just wish there was a quicker way to get points up, seems to take forever, tryna buy n sell, tryna buy gold players for 150 and sell on for 300 or 600 and see where the bidding goes, if they dont sell just quick sell, but its takin forever to get anywhere, plus with the website being down cant even use that

Will it be midnight, or 5am for you guys? Does EA differentiate for the time zone difference?

It resets at 12:01am GMT?

So us Americans can buy our new packs after 7:01pm EST?

Or do they stagger the release?

That I'm unsure of

Without being in America I do not know. Test it yourself? It's definitely 12:01 gmt for us as I tested.

So the happy hour basically where it increases your chances of getting an IF player...
Do they do gold packs where its just all players ? So you don't get any contracts, formations etc. Like a special bundle of jut gold players ?
