FUT gold packs?

Ok

Apart from the free downloadable gold packs from the season pass I have opened around ten packs so far and I have yet to get any decent players from them at all.....

I have had Louis Saha and one inform player from brazil that's worth like 6,000 coins..

My question is this......

Is this EA's way of making money knowing that your are not gonna get them in the packs? A bit like the old panini sticker albums you used to get,loads of duplicates and you never completed an album unless you phoned the company up and bought the stickers you needed to complete your album...

Have any of you been lucky and got a semi decent player? Or is it even possible to get the likes of Ronald's,messi and the like in these packs at all?

I've got Di Maria, Higuain, Richards, Kompany, Carzola and about 10 players worth under 5k in about 50 gold packs, oh and 2 in forms.

Could of just went to the swap shops! and got them for free and come home with bags of Capri Sun

But yeah this is just a cash cow for EA.

Comes down to luck, I've probably opened around 30 now and my 2 best players was Cazorla and Torres, sold for around 65k+ coins.

Probably wasted more coins buying premium packs at the end of it all though.

10 packs is not a huge number. To get an in form in 10 packs is lucky.

I opened 10 packs today and got an IF on my 7th . Odds are so much higher when using MSP/Fifa Points.

I got Hamsik (85) in a pack and Soldado (84) in one too. Sold Hamsik for about 6,000 and bought a formation modifier for Soldado as I'm doing a La Liga team. Worked out alright as the money I got for Hamsik paid for Soldado to fit into my team.

No they are not. Sadly I am proof. I won't say how many pacvks I have opened without getting an IF but I got the 50 pack achievement quite a few days ago.

I've got naff all in packs bought with MS/FIFA points, but got Giroud, Arteta, IF Koscielny, Papiss Cisse, Podolski and a few others in my free packs.

Not sure why EA keeps giving me Arsenal players...
