Fifa 10 Ultimate Team The Great Gold Pack Experiment
I have written many many hubs on fifa 10 ultimate team and consider myself to be one of the best card traders out there,i have amassed over 1,000,000 coins in my career as a team builder and trader and passed on those tips to others who through their comments have let me know that my success has also been shared by them.The best hub i have written on fifa ultimate team is this one Fifa ultimate team tips and strategies which has had over 60,000 hits from across the world in less than 3 months.The one hub i have never attempted though is the one which would definitively answer the only question i haven't been able to truly answer in the last few months since the download was released."Are gold packs worth buying or are they a waste of time and coins".Well i will now answer that,firstly let it be known that i am selling Lionel Messi to be able to do this experiment.Messi sold for 239950 coins and also i had a few coins in the bank anyway.For this experiment i have a kitty of 280,122 coins of which i am going to buy Premium gold packs and special packs when available,every pack i open i will be making a note of what i get and listing the results below.Then by the end we will be able to tell if it was worth it.i Have seen this done a couple of times before but never on this scale.Wish me luck!!!!!!
Once i have opened a few packs i will be selling the unwanted cards and recording the amounts they go for so we can see that if you do blow a load of coins on packs just how much you are likely to get in return for selling the unwanted cards,i will only sell the cards of any value,all other cards will be discarded for minimal fee's,can you seriously make back 5-6000 coins on a 7500 coin pack.Lets see!!.Its exciting times people.
And so we begin with the first pack,to start with i am going to open the special packs which cost 15,000 coins and contain players only.Here goes.!
The first special player pack has been very dissapointing!
The highest rated player was Marquez CB 82 and Fanni RB 81 the rest were all under 80 and a waste of time.
The second special player pack was also dissapointing
The highest rated player was Diego CAM 84 and the rest were all under 80
Premium Gold packs
1: Nobody over 80 highest was 77, Two gold 90 contract cards and One 4-4-1-1 99 training card At least that was something.made 900 on the contract cards and training card and about 1000 on discarded items
2:Best is Dzeko ST 82 and Milan Home kit. Dzeko sold for 600 and i earned about 900 from discarded items
3:Best is Marchisio CM 80 and One rare 78 Emre CM (discarded for 624) One 90 contract card and One Gold squad team talk. Emre went for 624 and i made about 1100 from discarded items
4:Best is Tuncay CF 78 Juventus badge and One 90 contract card.Made about 1450 on discarded items
5:Best is Helton GK 81 One rare player (Discarded for 614) One 90 contract card.made 1280 on discarded items
Not good so far eh,but like i have already said it is pure luck,ronaldo could be round the next corner,although if i don't get anything out of this at least i would of helped some of you guys make your minds up about whether to spend your hard earned coins
6:Best is Senderos CB 76 One rare player,2000 coins and 1250 in discarded items
7:Best is Renato Augusto CAM 76 One rare player,Spurs Home kit and 1200 in discarded items
8:Best is Toure CB 86 and Maxwell LWB 81 and San siro stadium plus 207 in discarded items,not too bad
9:Best is Vandenborre CF 77 and LF>LW card and heal all card and one 90 contract plus 1200 in discarded items
10:Best is Tuncay CF 78 Villa home kit,Training all attributes +10 and 1200 discarded items
So first 10 done,not great eh,good find on Toure but nothing special,ah well only another 20 or so to go.
11:Best is Bojjinovst CM 77 and Two 90 contracts plus 1551 discarded items
12:Best is Diamanti CAM 77, one rare player, squad team talk, and one 90 contract and 1440 discarded items
13:Best is Dede LB 79 Two rare players, one 90 contract card, and 2098 in discarded items
14:Best is Kodlec Rubbish,one rare player, one 90 contract, and 1300 discarded items
15:Best is Suarez CF 84 Better, One gold manager, one 90 contract, and 918 in discarded items
16:Best is Granqvist CB 77 One team talk Morale, and 1800 discarded items
17:Best is Myhill GK 77 One manager training card, Two 90 contract cards, and 1200 in discarded items
18:Best is Downing LW 81 and one rare player, two 90 contract, 2000 coins, and 1700 discarded items
19:Best is Elhoff GK 77 and man city home kit, two 90 contracts, and 1340 discarded items
20:Best is Deco CM 81 and one rare player, and one squad fitness card, and 2870 in discarded items
So still not going terribly well,but this is what makes it exciting knowing that at any minute you could unearth a Messi or Ronaldo or Torres.I have opened less packs than this before and got better players.
21:Best is Riera CM 79 one rare player, one squad fitness, 2000 in discarded items
22:Best is Vannucchi CAM 77 arsenal home kit, one 90 contract, one heals all card, and 911 in discarded items
23:Best is Aimar CAM 79 2000 coins, one heals all card and 1310 in discarded items
24:Best is Afellay CAM 79 one heals all card, one 90 contract, and 1175 in discarded items
25:Best is Jaaskelainin GK 84 and squad morale card, one 90 contract, and 1119 in discarded items
26:Best is Arteta CM 85 and one rare player, and 1845 in discarded items
27:Best is Jaaskelainin GK 84 and LF>LW card, and 1800 in discarded items
28:Best is Belletti CB 80 bolton home kit,player training card 4-4-1-1, and 1300 in discarded items
29:Best is Huddlestone CM 78 and Arsene Wenger, and squad morale card,and 1770 in discarded items
30:Best is Hangeland CB 82 and one rare player, one crowd capacity unlock and 1110 in discarded items
31:Best is Park RM 77 one rare player, two 90 contract cards, and 1280 in discarded items
So having spent 262,500 and having made about 60,000 in discarded items this shows in my opinion that buying card packs is only for the mega rich.I could of brought Messi again with the money i spent on packs or even an entire half decent squad,and the best players i got were Toure,Arteta,Jaaskelainin and Diego come on!!!.But then on the flipside i have opened just 5 packs before and got Higuain,Tevez,Maicon and Lampard so it can work but in my opinion and from the results that you have just read i have to say it is now conclusive that it is just pure luck,"Whats that you just got a Torres well bite me you lucky SOB.So i have just spent a quarter of a million coins on testing out my theory to help you guys make an informative decision,i hope you do the right thing and keep trading without having to buy packs,I also hope that you appreciate my efforts,I ill possibly be doing a part 2 to this hub but on special packs only so keep your eyes peeled for it.
