FIFA 23 Ultimate Team players are up in arms over a recent pack on the game’s store, claiming its high walkout probabilities are “misleading.”

Ultimate Team packs are an essential feature in FIFA 23, giving players the chance to grab players who you may not be able to afford from the marketplace. Whether it’s a new Team of the Week player or one of the upcoming Rulebreakers promo cards, there are plenty of incredible cards to add to your squad.

Of course, there’s an element of luck when opening Ultimate Team packs, as there are no guarantees as to what players you will pull. Thankfully, EA use mandatory, advertised pack percentages to assure players what quality of cards will be found inside.

Unfortunately, this year’s Road to the Knockouts packs have proved controversial, with the pack promising walkout-caliber players, when for many, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

Ultimate Team RTTK pack frustrates FIFA 23 players

Road to the Knockouts is a returning promotion that sees a handful of players from the Champions League, Europa League, and Conference League all receive special cards that can be automatically upgraded based on real-life performances.

To capitalize on this promo, EA released a special pack in store for players – a 25,000-coin pack featuring 5 Rare Gold Players, 1 Loan ICON, and 1 Loan RTTK player.

But the interesting detail to note was that if you checked the pack probabilities, it advertised a “Gold 86+ Player” with a 90% chance of this happening – a guaranteed Gold walkout. However, what the game didn’t tell fans was that this figure included the two loan players as well.

Reddit user whyhecap expressed their frustration over this information saying: “Found this out the hard way…You are unlikely to get an actual walkout. Very misleading and scummy from EA (to be expected).”

The backlash against the pack was unanimous with one user saying: “Upvote this as much as possible, people are literally getting ripped off and should demand compensation,” and another Reddit user offering: “I don’t see how this is not false advertising? Loans never counted for odds.”

We’ll have to wait and see if anything comes of this and if EA do decide to offer players something in return for allegedly misleading pack odds.
