Hope this helps... (How Great Is That? achv)

After opening up A LOT of gold packs and getting nowhere I was getting frustrated so I sold a bunch of players this morning and went to work. Read up on the achv and people are saying that it is possible to get this achv with a bronze pack. I was sceptical but decided to give it a go.

Got home and there were about 20k of coins in my account so I started buying bronze packs (400 coins ones) and sure enough after 15 or so this popped. No rares/IFs in my team although there is a player on the right (where the badges/kits usually are). An American winger called Pittman.

Thank f**k that is sorted. Now I can actually enjoy this mode!!

I got about 15k and wondering wether to try this, I could do with saving the money as i need Nasri and he's going for around 60k average unless someone wants to lend him to me for a tournament then they can have him back

So Pittman was a bronze IF? Or is it bugged? If so I will try this.

He is probably a sub in totw. There are 11 players we all know are on totw but there are subs too. To see who they are go to store and watch bottom right for team of week 2/2

He was just a shiny bronze card though rather than one of the black ones. Very odd.

But there you go, I suggest to everyone that you do what I did. Set aside 20000 and start buying bronze packs. Make sure your trade pile/auctions are clear beforehand so you can list some of your new players. Best to sort out your consumables also so that you've got somewhere to store any new ones.

Then just start ploughing through bronze 400 packs before they patch this thing.

Did this this morning and it totally worked! Spent about 5000 on bronze packs and it popped without getting an IF player! I didn't do anything special, just listed the contracts and decent players and then quick sold the rest. After about 15 packs it popped. It must be some kind of loop hole! Awesome!

Glad it helped.

It does take the pressure off and means you can now spend your money on the players you want and not useless gold packs.

Just spent some 30,000 coins opening bronze packs, opened about 80 of them, and no achievement.
I did on 2 occasions get a player hanging out on the right hand side, not a duplicate, not IF, but nothing.
On the bright side, I did add about 300 new players to the club, and increased its value by some 15-20 million, sitting at 70 million right now.

In my way To 85 million, i just bought about 300 bronze packs and no cheevo... Bad luck at all... I wil buy some gold packs, quick sell the cards, and when i get 20000 coins, i will start buying bronze packs.
About that, is it better buying 750 coins packs, or the 400 coins?

Hard to tell. I got mine in a 400 pack. I bought less 400 packs than I did 7500 ones so statistically I reckon it's the way forward.

has the TOTW changed yet? The last one had racist Terry in it. I'm guessing he didn't make the latest one.

if it has changed maybe that's affected this solution. We need confirmation on that!!

I have the 85M achievement. In fact I only needed 50 hours and level 20 achievements prior to this one. So maybe this has something to do with it?

Update to my previous post:
I bought 15-20 more bronze packs, and got the achievement.
It was actually a black IN Form card:

ST 60
Daniel McGuinness
Irish
Bray Wanderers

Finally!

Pittman unlocks the achievement even though he isn't IF. He was however a summer transfer, so maybe all players that were transferred after game was released unlocks achievement?

I only need it and 50 hrs for the 1000.

From recent posts on this forum it looks like this still works.

I tweeted the EA community/live/UT guy about it but he works for EA and so didn't reply or help in the slightest.

I've just unlocked the achievement by opening bronze 750 coin bronze packs. Opened about 15 packs one after the other and it popped. Opened about 150 packs all together so glad to get this achievement out of the way...

good to know. I did it with regular 400pt bronze packs though, so that's probably the better option.

A post on True Achievements confirms this still works.

Pittman is a holographic player, so wouldn't it still be better financially to buy premium bronze (750) packs and get 3 rares instead of 3 standard bronze (1200) to get that same number of rares?

Since I've spent over 100 buying gold packs now, and rightly feel like I've been used by EA's money making scam - this is what I'm buying from now on.

As yet though, I've spent ~60,000 coins on bronze packs, and still no Pittman.


Edit:

JUST UNLOCKED THAT DAMN ACHIEVEMENT!

Premium Bronze pack, but no Pittman. It was a player called Miguel Angel Llera Garzon at Brentford, a rare bronze player, but off to the right rather than with the rest of the players, as everyone's been saying.



So yeah, don't give EA any money (as I did). Spend all your coins on Premium Bronze packs (selling the good items to make the coins back), and hope for Pittman or the dude I got.

Whether this comes for me quickly or not (already spent 11k today on Bronze Premium Packs), it definitely seems better to buy Bronze packs as it is far easier to make your money back, plus so far I have got to Bronze English players worth 5k, two or three random guys worth between 1k and 2k, and a Bronze English CB worth 10k. Even just selling the players and not worrying about selling the contracts/fitness cards, this seems to be the best way to maximize your pack opening options and still have a decent chance of getting the achievement.

Pittman isn't the key! I think it's just something that happens with Bronze packs occasionally. I still think the 400pt packs are the way forward but good to know this is still working!

But he is. How many players do you really think transferred after this game came out? Both Pittman and Miguel Llera were emergency loans that occurred in September. Both of the confirmed players that work to unlock this achievement are holographic players, so until more players are revealed to work, I still think that Bronze Premiums are the best way to go.

EDIT: I was interested in these summer transfers and put together a list of all the summer transfers on their new teams.

Bronze:

Adams (55) Brentford npower League 1
Duplus (57) EA Guingamp Ligue 2 (NO ACHIEVEMENT)
Pittman (58) Crawley Town npower League 2 (CONFIRMED)
Martin (58) Amiens SC Ligue 2 (NO ACHIEVEMENT)
Lund (58) Stoke City Barclays PL
Parkes (58) Leicester City npower Championship
Jackson (59) Northampton npower League 2
T. Clarke (59) Leyton Orient npower League 1
Simpson (61) Oldham npower League 1
Griffiths (61) Crawley Town npower League 2 (NO ACHIEVEMENT)
Thomas (61) Bournemouth npower League 1
Vitiello (63) Ascoli Serie B
L. Clarke (63) Chesterfield npower League 1
Williams (63) Sheffield Utd npower League 1 (NO ACHIEVEMENT)
Miguel Llera (63) Brentford npower League 1 (CONFIRMED)

Silver:

Ngoyi (66) FC Nantes Ligue 2
Davies (67) Stoke City Barclays PL
Vilas Boas (67) Rio Ave FC Liga Portugesa
Djiby Fall (71) Odense Boldklub Superliga
Augustyn (71) Vicenza Serie B
Collins (71) Ipswich Town npower Championship

Bold = Holographic/Rare

Source: http://www.ultimatedb.nl/

The website has a list of all the transfers on their old teams, my list has all the new teams. Be aware people that only the players marked confirmed have so far been confirmed to give out the achievement "How Great is this?".

EDIT 2: I just pulled Duplus from a pack, and did not get the achievement, he is confirmed to not work. I looked through my club as well and found that I pulled Martin, Williams, and Griffiths from packs a while back, and did not get the achievement, they are confirmed to not work.

I have opened 30 or 40 gold packs (Jumbos, Premiums, All Player) and another 150 or so bronze packs with no luck. I think this bronze method is the best way to do it, but it is very disheartening.
