I think Pack Odds are a lie and just for show!

SDS

I know the fan boys will jump all over this but speaking to lots of mates who play the show everyone has the same observation. Pack pulls are way worse than last year so there is no way that pack odds can be the same! I love the game and think it's great, but this seems to be an observation I see voiced quite a lot.

Last 5 "Chase Packs" all gold! Over 25 Ballin packs not one diamond! Not even a gold from the many headliners! And have opened hundreds if not thousands of packs!

Haha, just opened a 50 pack bundle now! Chase = gold 80 of course!, Bundle = 50 golds highest an 82. Absolute garbage!

SDS

I once went over 130 Ballin packs without a diamond from 20-21, so I am not gonna feel for your 25. 😛 And after a slow start this year I have pulled probably around 10 diamonds, all low level ones except Scherzer twice. And I dont buy packs, zero. So I am happy so far.

SDS

Yes I don't buy packs with real money, just what I earn in game, but it's been really bad this year. Feels like a lot of grinding for nothing.

I'm sure your aware of this; but the odds don't mean that one in every 50 packs you buy/earn will contain a Diamond. It means that you have a 1 of 50 chance to pull a Diamond out of that particular pack.

Yes completely aware. Just still seems like it's much worse than last year. Again, this is something that I have seen voiced quite a bit through my personal community of mates that play the game.

So far I have opened way more packs than the same time last year and it's been worse. Hopefully my luck changes but I'm not holding my breadth.

All I can say is it has only been roughly 3 weeks, give or take depending if preordered or not. So you are probably comparing to years past complete results not just 3 weeks. Anyone can have bad pack luck for 3 weeks. And then turn around and still have a great year.

Yes fair enough. Just a bit of a rant I guess. I hope my luck changes but I am very reluctant to open any more packs that's for sure. However, I was not comparing to the whole year, as I had collections finished in about 1 month's time last year and that was all with no money spent. I am not even close so far this year!

SDS

Every year I’ve noticed that once I have all diamonds in my lineup or have completed collections, the Diamond odds seem to plummet. Packs are kinda juiced the first day or so. Odds this year are approaching 2K silliness though.

SDS

Meanwhile a buddy has pulled over 500K in diamonds (not including trout) so far this year.

SDS

Just tried another 50 pack bundle. Chase pack a gold again! That is 7 in a row now! Bundle gave me 2 diamonds, both icons! Absolute BS!!!

SDS

I feel like I get a healthy amount of diamond pulls every game, it's just that they're always low diamonds

I would settle for a low diamond for sure! I would actually settle for a 84 gold that has a chance of going diamond. Highest pull in the last 150 packs has been an 82!!!

I’ve had good luck with normal packs for diamonds, but I do think streamers and such folk have better pack odds for commercial reasons

SDS

I opened 40 packs in last 24 hours via Mystery Map and got one Diamond in Sale and maybe 2 golds? Silver is even rare in these packs for me

SDS

I just got Acuna last night, T. Turner last week, along with Bieber and Wheeler. They have been better for me so far this year, last year not so much

Edit, that was just mystery map packs, I got Harper, Betts, Arenado and Robert early on

SDS

It's called "Marketing" .... Just like every company hyping their product or services to be the best, cheapest, tastiest, fastest, etc. .... "No Body Beats Our Prices" .... "World's Best Pizza" ... etc, etc.

With SDS is them claiming pack odds are more in favor this year to have Diamonds. All Marketing BS to pacify us. But pack odds are all BS. It just boils down to random pot luck & chance. Just how some will pull Trout 2 & 3 times in a year & some have only pulled him only 1 time in 4 to 5 years, some have never pulled a Trout ever. However there are many Trouts within packs to be pulled. It's just a matter if you are that freaking lucky to get packs having high tier Diamonds, including Trout which is always every year the highest stub value Live Series Diamond card.

SDS

Not sure I agree with this entire post, but have to agree with Ballin Is A Gold packs.

I play a ton and earn a lot of packs, but I also have yet to see a single Diamond in them this year.

Yes they are absolute garbage. Unless you suck up to SDS. Just had a guy tell me odds are fine because he has pulled trout 3 times. Of course most of his posts were defending the game. I however will not defend this copy and paste trash just to get better odds in packs

SDS

Where are you all winning this many packs? Did you somehow sneak back into TA from 21 and smuggle the packs over? I played last night for 4 hours, I finished the FotF program, I completed the East map and about 30 points of the Cover program. I had 11 packs to open, 9 of them show packs. I really hope they are just trying to spread things out (not necessarily a bad thing), but if the amount of packs, stubs and XP doesn't increase, there won't be a ton of people playing come summer. I know, I know...."what else are you gonna play?" This just seems like a massive overcorrection to the excessive nature of 21.

SDS

I have yet to get a surprise "Chase Pack" within a "Show Pack" or even yet earn any "Chase Packs" from Programs or Conquest.
