Starting to think RNG is indeed glitched.

300k coins spent on the UFC 225 pack. Not ONE gold fighter, 2 highlight moves, couple other gold ones. Not ONE CM punk which my friend got like it was common (Yes I am aware it is silver, saying those are usually common).

Like, a record amount of bronze cards in each pack. What I just witnessed was absolutely incredible.

  • I spent 100k and got 2 moves from the event bit no fighters. Normally I spend about half that and get a few moves and at least 1 fighter out of event packs

    I spent about 150k and got a gold Holly Holm, plus loads of duplicates of the moves. I got 3 of Blaydes and Romero's moves.

    I'm hate, absolutely HATE RNG!!! I went 242 packs with out a gold fighter a couple months ago. I am OCD and buy 50 packs a time, which is 250K. I did this 4 times in a row (1MIL), and nothing. After the 4th time I completely lost my, lets just say poop. I contacted customer support. They were very nice about it, but all I heard was RNG is a female dog...

    So I said screw RNG! I saved up a million coins. I bought consumable packs for silver, and bronze contracts in 1 gold fighter increments (counting it out in my head, 5 bronze = 1 silver, 5 silver = 1 gold, and 3 gold = fighter). I did it that way to break up the monotony of days of just converting, but 2 good things came from it.(1st) I can tell you the average price if you have all the fighters, and moves is 30k for a gold fighter. (2nd) I ran out of bronze fighters, and was close on silvers. I only spent a little over 700K. I would have been quite annoyed if I had spent it all, and not been able to use all the contracts.

    I also converted every gold fighter I had that was not essential, and I had quite a few because I always saved them and figured I would convert them when 4*s came out. I kept my lightweight, middleweight, heavyweight, striker bantam, specialist bantam, balanced bantam, and all champion set fighters. I ended up with 43 created fighters. I don't recommend opening that many at once though. I got 3 doubles, one triple, and they were not cards that I already had. I converted more fighters into three more packs, got a double again, and did it once more.

    Now I have, at the time, 2-4 fighters for every champion accept the two I want (RNG?). So all I want is fighters for Cormier (0/4), and Thug Rose (1/5 silver Angela Hill). 47 fighters later I got absolutely zero for either... SCREW RNG!!! I got 2 champs out of it, I don't like the styles of either, and they sit behind the fighters in front of them.

    This isn't the type of post I usually make, I'm sorry for this rant, but it touched a nerve, I truly feel for you @PiggidyPanda. Later that week I spent another 250K on 50 packs, and on the 43 pack I got a gold fighter. It was useless to me, but nice to see none the less. The price for 2 gold fighters from packs during that stretch was 1,215,000 coins for me. It's actually higher because the previous gold fighter wasn't the last card from the packs I purchased, but that's here nor there.

    Up to speed now. I ended up getting a fighter for both Thug Rose, and Cormier. I used 3 wilds and made Rose, and I am 6 dailies away from a 3rd wild to get Cormier. Dailies are the ANTI-RNG. Wilds just take time to get.

    I'm just going to give a little bit of general info so you don't think I'm crazy. Now that's funny, I cant believe that's the first word that came to mind, but I'm going to leave it. I have mental health disabilities that keep me house bound 99% of the time. I only leave to go to doctor, counseling, and psychiatrist appointments. The only thing that stops me from coin capping is my medications cause me to sleep 12+ hours a day. I play a lot. You may have seen my Be the Boss post. The friend I mentioned also has MH disabilities. I said if I were to win, he had to come with me, and we would figure something out. That would have been one "CRAZY" trip @EA_Roger had I been elidable, and won.
    I have mental health disabilities that prevent me from leaving the house. I like to play UFC 3 Ultimate Team, so I do. Probably too much.
  • its not glitched rng is designed to keep you spending points for items you really want in hopes you become frustrated enough to spend real money. Like everything else with the ultimate team model.

    Both of the fighters I need for 5* Conor are in item scouting tonight. Kind of funny how messed up RNG is. Maybe I will buy them eventually, so I spent $0.89, and locked them both. I generally stay away from the lightweight division because it's to fast for my older hands, or I would have gotten him already.

    I can get 250K coins faster than a wild card, so its not a bad decision for me. I also want to start leveling up perks after I finish off my last wild card for Cormier. I only need three more, so hopefully tomorrow I will get him. Maybe I will get him tonight when I buy UFC 225 packs, since RNG seems to kind of be in my favor today.

    Yeah, that didn't happen. Not sure what I was thinking, LOL.

    Edit 2:

    Screw RNG, wild cards FTW!!!

  • How do you not get bored of single player the cpu is so repetitive to play against

    I don't find it repetitive, or boring. Each fight is different in its own way. It may be a high HMVT, FWRK, TDD, BOT, a submission in a weird spot, and so on. There is always a kink in the line. Plus the A.I. now has 2 fighting patterns for each style now. So if/when you run into the same guys fighter it could be an entirely different fight.

    I play on PSN and some things here don't make sense to me.
    What's RNG?
    It takes me about 8 fights to get to $5,000 coins and when you guys mention numbers like 246 packs and 1,000,000 coins, it's weeks of playing time..
    This conversion business with contracts, what's that? Here, I can use gold token to get gold fighters, but I don't do it because it's all random. I'd really like to use CAF's, but they apparently are random too and the cost is even higher.
    I haven't done multiplayer on UFC 3 yet and from what I gather, one has to complete all the daily challenges to get one daily token and it takes eight daily tokens to get one wild token.. That's insane!

    RNG - random number generator. It's basically pure luck as to what you get in the packs.

    If you've been playing a while and have a load of useless bronze/silver items, they can be crafted into tokens. It's the contracts which are the rarest, so keep these for crafting rather than actually using them.

    The good news is that you get at least 2 tokens on the dailies (and as much as 6), the bad news is that you need 24 to get a wildcard! It's still worth it though, especially if you want to complete the champion sets.
