Are scratchers?

SDS

NOOO please dont waste your money

SDS

9 out of 10 times you'll lose stubs on those packs

SDS

They are def. not worth the 35k price tag. Esp if you buy two and then get two 6k players. Or one 6k and one 30k. You wont get the Elite round. I NEVER buy packs. I only open up packs that I get from in game b/c I literally do every moment, conquest, player program, etc. and I have learned from last year that you dont want to waste stubs on packs... at all.. Just open up the packs the game gives you, sell the players, then buy a player if you really want one from the market.

SDS

First time around they were. Now that the pool is more diluted so no. Odds are too low for your to make back your stubs.

I had 9 packs that the game gave me. I started to leave them for the next day, but was frustrated trying to get triples for the Robinson program.
I said: 'Maybe there's something in there to cheer you up.'
I opened them all. Nothing!

@TheGoaler Oh man it is TERRIBLE this year. Last year I got diamonds here and there and it was stingy. This year it is RIDICULOUS how stingy they are with diamonds. I am a level 97 silver and pulled Bellinger at level 88 Bronze then Yates at 30 silver. Then Yelich at 75 silver. Thats it. I havent pulled any other diamonds all year and have open HUNDREDS of packs.

SDS

Opened one, pulled Grienke.

It's tempting, but I wouldn't do it. Like an idiot I keep doing it and always end up in the negative. As I have been saying forever, the only people who consistently get high diamonds/elites are the shills who pour their bank accounts into the game. SDS has transaction coding so the more you spend the better chance you have for those. Don't be that guy

SDS

I got the free pack on 100 win in event pulled Greinke sold him for 34k and bought the new pack haven’t opened it yet but figured the first card was free so only cost me 1k to buy the pack. Anything I get is profit. Hoping for good luck.

SDS

I regret buying them. First pack I opened I got Rodney (6.5k on marketplace). Picked him because he will at least make my roster. 2nd pack I at least got Greinke and sold immediately. Overall I lost 35k stubs.

It's interesting to see the different perceptions of risk assessment.

I personally didn't buy them the first time around because the high tier was only going for around 60-70k, so I didn't see risking 35k for such a small profit as worth it. Even though there was a safer floor because the lower tier was 15kish.

When I saw the elite tier prices at 200k, I thought it was a better gamble, sure it's 1 in 10 instead of 1 in 4 making a profit, but it's a much bigger profit. I bought one pack, pulled the elite and didn't buy the second

Obviously I got lucky, I could have easily lost 30k there.
I don't think your or my interpretation of what's worth risking is the one right way, I just thought it was interesting how people interpret risk.

SDS

Free packs are [censored] near bot worth, so ya ducks on the pond definitely not worth it, but...

That’s all bull****. I’ve spent over a thousand each year, the last three years, and have horrible pack luck.

SDS

In a word: No

In a more in depth explanation: No packs are ever worth it, except for free packs.

You are almost always better off just purchasing the card you want rather than hoping to pull said card. Even if you happen to get lucky and pull the elite round, yes you'll be up stubs temporarily but if you extrapolate the odds over each time there is a release you will always.... ALWAYS take a loss.

Remember, packs are gambling - like playing in a casino - and the house always wins...

Yup... 100% Bull. It's all luck. I've also pumped a ton a money each year and my luck has been horrible until this year. This year I've gotten enough Diamonds from free packs to make up for 17-19. Even got Trout, Yelich and Sale in back to back to back packs. No, I'm not Ramone or even friends with him lol.

SDS

Not for me... I finally broke down and bought 2 last night and lost at least 50k. I have had zero luck in packs this year though, even my diamond pulls have been 8k at best. I wanted Salvador Perez and that was one of my pulls... so I guess could have been worse???

There are always outliers, I speak with factual knowledge!

100% No. 1 out of 10 chance is not worth 35k.
