With EA FC 24 Ultimate Team in early access, players around the world have been diving into EA Sports’ latest title. The community has already made plenty of discoveries, including a striker that is sure to bait many players throughout EA FC 24’s cycle.

After months of anticipation, early access players can finally enjoy EA FC 24. The game sees the return of fan-favorite modes alongside a healthy offering of new features. The newly added Evolutions, paired with upcoming brand collaborations, inject a dose of freshness into the Ultimate Team mode.

Speaking of Ultimate Team, opening packs remains the best way of acquiring new players for your squad. However, it’s also easy to get baited into thinking you pulled an elite card, something many players continue to learn the hard way.

EA FC 24’s pack animation begins with a glimpse at the player’s club, nation, and position. Normally, this is an effective way of deducing what’s in store before the final reveal, although sometimes those brief glimpses can be quite misleading.

Look no further than PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe for an example. The Frenchman is the best-rated player in the game, bearing some outrageous base stats. Packing him is a dream for players, and the sheer sight of his club, nation, and position details can cause a fit of elation. Unfortunately, he’s not the only EA FC 24 player with those credentials, as both Kolo Muani and Kadidiatou Diani are also French strikers representing PSG.

This opens up the possibility of being baited into believing that you pulled Mbappe, only for the lights to shine on Muani or Diani instead. Many players in the community have already experienced this disappointment firsthand, with a user on Reddit even branding it “the worst troll in the game.” Even Castro1021, a popular figure within the community, fell for the ploy, and his reaction quickly went viral.

As the weeks go by, expect to see more such videos. In the meantime, check out our EA FC 24 guides including the best rated players and best Ultimate Team formations.
