  10. This is exactly the 3rd posting, of your site I actually read.
    Still I enjoy this particular one, “FIFA Ultimate Team Frequently Asked Questions – FUT
    FAQ | FIFA Ultimate Team” the best. Thank you ,Hans

  12. Hi,

    I have a question regarding IF cards.

    I had seen many player selling IF cards ( black or blue ) in trading, I’m wondering how they got these player? Understand that IF cards come from packs, but I have open up at least 30 over packs and always got player that is not good, the best player I got is Kagawa from man-u.( and this is special promotion o the pack and using 15000 coin to purchase ).

    Is it that all IF card needs a lot of luck to have to get even 1 black card player??? So to me is that the only way to get all these cards is trade? Then how those player who got messi in blue card got it in packs???

    Or is it that high level player or EA pro player can have chances to have them when opening the pack? If not, which pack shall I purchase to have better chance to get this kind of black or blue messi or other good play? ( the gold pack? )

    Sorry for the long msg.

    Btw, you r great to provide us and answer all player question. You guys are really great!

    1. Starting by the end: thanks!
      It’s a matter of luck. There are people that opened hundreds of packs and never got an IF card. We always said: investing in packs is a very bad investment. Ckek out here the mistake number 2. If you saved that money that you spent on packs, you now would be able to buy th IF card that you want.
      Who get a blue Messi had very luck. It can happen to you but it is VERY difficult. It hasn’t nothing to do with hgl level player or EA pro player. Just luck…
      There only one thing that can be done: to choose the right time to buy packs. We will publish an article about this on February 6th.
      Here is an excerpt from it:
      “Try to make the purchase when Happy Hour is active, because the cost per card is usually lower. Better yet, if you buy in Happy Hours advertised as “2x Chance“. This means that the probability of opening a pack with a IF card is twice higher than usually.
      Another precaution you can take is to buy packs in weeks which TOTW are formed by top players. It is no coincidence that adherence to the packs is higher for weeks with TOTY.
      There are also those who try to increase their chances of success gathering players who bet their coins together and share the respective prizes.”
