EA says FIFA 19 will disclose Ultimate Team pack odds


Eurogamer has the story.

Quote:
FIFA 19 will include pack odds disclosures, EA has confirmed to Eurogamer.

Speaking to our reporter Robert Purchese at the Gamelab conference in Spain, EA Sports vice president and COO Daryl Holt said FIFA Ultimate Team Packs will show odds from FIFA 19 on.

Here's what Holt told us:

"For Ultimate Team, when you buy a pack you know what you are getting. You are getting a certain number of assets that are guaranteed - and we're going to start to do pack odds disclosures that'll show you the odds of what you might get.

"That'll be in our product year 19 titles. So, at least that aspect of understanding what the chances are of getting X, Y and Z card."

However, Holt did not go into detail on exactly what pack contents FIFA 19 will disclose the odds of - and when we followed up with EA, the company declined to offer any additional information.

As it stands in FIFA 18, Ultimate Team packs give you a vague idea of what you'll get inside them. For example, FIFA 18 tells players a Gold Pack includes a mix of 12 items, including players and consumables, at least 10 Gold and one Rare.

My guess is they were forced to do this so as the EU not continue to cry about rights and fleecing gamers yada yada yada. Off topic but related, this may be the first year I don't get NHL at all. Visually it took a step back and the game was good enough last year that an upgrade isn't really needed.

This is also the law in China as of... last year I think.

It doesn't matter, the odds aren't likely going to change or if they do they won't change dramatically. People thought they might alter them region by region so the odds were more favorable in the regions they had to disclose the odds but I doubt that's the case. In the sample size most people purchase the packs I doubt anyone is going to be able to hold their feet to the fire. Any evidence will be acedontol at best.
