Opening up card packs in FIFA 17 is a lot of fun. However, it is a lot more fun when you successfully open valuable and rare cards from the pack, which can be very hard to accomplish. If you are thinking of starting to open card packs, you first need to know which card packs are the best to buy in FIFA 17.
This will be a short guide that will teach you which FIFA 17 card packs are the best and why. The guide will be more helpful to people who are not so familiar with the FIFA card system, but even the more experienced players can learn something new.
We can’t say which FIFA 17 card pack is the best because it depends on what you want to accomplish.
Let’s say if you want to build up a bronze team, your best choice is to buy a bronze one. If you are interested in the consumables and contracts, you need to buy the consumables packs. However, most likely you are like the majority of players and you want to get your hands on some of the most valuable and rarest cards in whole the game.
We are not blaming you, after all, if you want to be at the top, you need to have the best cards to be able to defeat other players and get to the TOP. In that case, you will need to buy the Gold packs.The most exquisite promotional pack in the game is the Ultimate one. Why is that the most exquisite promotional pack you might ask, well its very simple, this pack contains 30 Gold Rare players!
However, being the most exquisite means it is the most expensive one. The price of the Ultimate Pack is 125k Coins or 2.5k FIFA points. Being the most expensive one, not a lot of people can afford it.
If you don’t want to spend a lot of coins, we have one advice for you. That is to know exactly which card pack contains the most valuable cards for the lowest price you possibly can find. All you need to do is to purchase the Gold one that has the lowest price per rare player card.
It is important to open rare cards because those are the ones that can make you rich. All the other cards that are included are usually worthless.
Analysing the Card Packs
To know exactly which card packs contains the maximum amount of rare cards at the lowest price you need to carefully analyse every card pack separately. It is very simple to do, you only need to divide the price by the number of rare cards in the pack.
However, you should always pay close attention to the category of the card and to watch for other cards in the pack because card pack can contain other things than just player cards. The most valuable FIFA 17 card packs are the ones that guarantee you Gold rare player cards.
One more thing you should pay close attention is the proportional relation between FIFA Points and Coins.
What we mean by proportional relation is that for example, you can buy a Jumbo Premium Gold pack and a Silver Upgrade pack to a total of 30k coins, while if you are buying it with FIFA Points you can buy one for 300 points and the second one for only 50.
That’s why it is important to closely analyse every card pack to spend the least amount of points and coins.
Types of Packs
In FIFA 17 there are three different types of card packs you can either buy or earn.
- Regular Packs: If you decide to buy the Regular ones you can do it anytime because they are always available for purchasing on the store.
- Promo Packs: These kind of Packs are also available for purchase with coins or FIFA points but not all the time. They are available for purchase only on specific periods of time such as Happy Hours.
- Free Packs: This particular type of packs as you can tell by their name are free and they cannot be purchased on the store. The only way you can get this Free type is by competing in various tournaments, as daily gifts, through drafts, seasons, doing squad building challenges, Champion rewards and some are automatically assigned to you at the beginning of the game.
The Best FIFA 17 Card Packs
The Ultimate Champions Pack
This is definitely the most wanted and most valuable of all of them. Every FIFA 17 player dreams about getting one, but only few can get it. This is, believe it or not, a FREE type pack that contains 44 Gold Card players. To get the Ultimate Champion card pack all you need to do is to be ranked in the top 100 players and you will get it as a Monthly reward!
Don’t let that discourage you, if you are not one of the best FIFA players in the world all you need to do is to practice more and more and eventually your skill level will increase and you will be able to compete with the best players for this monthly reward.
The Ultimate Pack
We have analysed every pack that you can buy with Coins and got to conclusion that the Ultimate one is the best one that you can buy. If our math is good you are spending 4,166 coins per Rare Gold Player. That is the best ration you will get from any pack.
This is the most expensive one that you can buy with coins but it is worth. You will get a guaranteed 30 Gold Rare Players when you open one. The Ultimate pack was first time released in FIFA 16 and even then, it was the smartest choice you can go for.
