DC Rewards are rigged

Since completing all the 92 players. I've exclusively devoted my DC reward cards for the "up to 10,000" coin reward which requires 15 DC cards. I've now done about 6 of these rewards. My best pull was 3,500. Either I have the worse luck or this feature is completely rigged.

You know from last year, Fidder had the same rare rating as Ovechkin and yet every other pack had a Fidder card (see any Bacon Country video from NHL 16 for proof). Of course I still have yet to pull Ovechkin.

Considering EA has never made a statement defining what their "rare" rating is and what is means, I am left to the conclusion this is rigged against the user.

So I did a little experiment using a programming language Python and coded a script to simulate random numbers up to 10,000 with increments of 500 starting at 1,000.

My results first go around:
(9,000) (6,500) (8,000) (4,000) (1,500)

Second go around:
(10,000) (5,000) (3,500) (10,000) (8,500)

Third go around:
(2,500) (1,000) (5,000) (7,500) (8,000)

My goal was to see if EA's randomization was truly random or is it rigged. My simple experiment so far speaks volumes.

Really makes you wonder how they figure out their randomization.

  • They don't.

    I always said that there never was ANY oversight of the entire randomization process.
    I doubt, their system is being handled like a - let's say - a state lottery.








  • HUT is basically like a gambling site, they crunch the numbers and find out the least they can give you and still keep you playing.
  • True.

    But if I play play craps or roulette the house is not in charge of my odds. The house is not creating my odds - it does not have a saying in how many cards will be in the deck.

    Of course it is. You pick from what the house offers. You don't get to call 32 black and say you want betting odds of 1 to 10,000.

    Same thing here except we don't really know what the odds are. Can't just look at the board and use math to figure it out.

  • yo dawg, you just gotta buy another pack

    I know its gambling, just tell me the odds. It makes no sense. As I've stated before, Coach Fiddler and Ovechkin have the same rare rating and yet I would pull a fiddler every other pack, yet I can't get Ovie (NHL 16).

    EA has never explained their rarity rating system and what it means.
