Introduction

What this guide will show you
 

If you are reading this guide that’s because you want to know, or at least to confirm, which are the best packs of FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. Obviously it depends on what you want. If you want to build a bronze squad, you should buy a bronze pack. If you want to get more contracts and other consumables, you should try the consumables packs. However, most of the players want to put their hands on the best and most expensive cards in the game. In that case, they will need to buy Gold packs. But which one?

The Ultimate Pack, which contains 30 gold rare players, is by far the best promotional pack in the game. However, it is also the most expensive one. What is important here is to know which pack has the best cards for the less price possible. Our advice is very simple: purchase the available gold pack with the lowest price per rare player card. These are the only cards that can make some one rich. The other cards are almost worthless.

To know which packs have the lowest price per rare card, we only need to divide the price by the number of rare cards. It is easy to do it, following the table below. However, we should pay attention to the category of the pack and if there are other cards besides players. The best packs are the ones with guaranteed rare gold players cards. Into this group, the Premium Gold Players Pack is two times more expensive than the Rare Players Pack or the Jumbo Rare Players Pack. This difference is not so high if we use FIFA Points to pay instead of coins. It may be weird but EA Sports doesn’t use a proportional relation between coins and FIFA Points. For example: Jumbo Premium Gold pack and Silver Upgrade pack both cost 15,000 coins but the first one may be purchased with 300 FIFA Points while for the second we only need 50 FIFA Points. Players should also pay attention to this aspect. That’s the reason why we analyse separately the packs bought with coins and the packs bought with FIFA Points.

The Best Packs of FIFA 18

The most wanted packs of FIFA 18 Ultimate Team
 

Here are the best packs of FIFA 18 Ultimate Team.

 
 
 

The Best Packs to Buy on FIFA 18 Ultimate Team
1
 

TOP 100 FUT CHAMPIONS PACK
Cards: 45 | Players: 45 | Rare: 45 | Gold: 45 | TOTW: 44 | ICON: 1

This is the most wanted pack of FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. Can you imagine to open a pack with guaranteed 44 TOTW gold players and an ICON? Unfortunately this pack is only available as a monthly reward for who ranks in the top 100. If you are not one of the best FIFA players in the world, all you can do is to watch it on Youtube.

ELITE 1 FUT CHAMPIONS PACK
Cards: 20 | Players: 20 | Rare: 20 | Gold: 20 | TOTW: 20

Just like the TOP 100 FUT Champions pack, this one is an exclusive for the best FUT Champions players of the month. It includes 20 TOTW players from the month they were earned in. If it was possible to have this pack on sale in the FUT store, it would cost more than a million coins. There is also a Elite FUT Champions pack with 15 cards and another one with 12.

GOLD 1 FUT CHAMPIONS PAC 5
Cards: 5 | Players: 5 | Rare: 5 | Gold: 5 | TOTW: 5

The Ultimate Pack, which contains 30 gold rare players, is a great pack but we still prefer this one which guarantees 5 TOTW players with overall rating 81 or higher. Once again, you will not be able to get one of these packs unless you are a top FIFA player.


 

 
 
 
 
 

The Best Packs to Buy with Coins

Ranking of the best packs your coins can pay
 

The packs of the previous chapter are amazing but they are not available on the FUT store.

We watched hundreds of pack openings to determine, in average, how many gold rare players cards each promotional pack includes. It was not easy because we need to know, for example, how many consumables cards a Mega Pack has or how many gold players cards are rare in a Jumbo Premium Gold pack. You will not have to worry about that because we did the hard job for you. All you have to do is to check the following table to discover the best packs to buy with coins on the FUT 18 store.

#18Gold Pack5 00023,809


 

As you probably expected 50k, 100k and 125k are the best packs, because you only have to spend 4000 coins for each gold rare player. However, those of you who thought that 25k Premium Gold Players packs were good, well you are wrong. It is cheaper to buy multiple 15k packs.

RARE PLAYERS PACK
Cards: 12 | Players: 12 | Rare: 12 | Gold: 12

This is the best pack your coins can buy. Well, in fact this is as good as the 100k and 125k packs. The biggest difference between them is that with this pack you have the option to pull less cards. For example, you don’t have to open two 100k packs if you only want 36 rare gold players cards.

JUMBO RARE PLAYERS PACK
Cards: 24 | Players: 24 | Rare: 24 | Gold: 24

You are still thinking why 100k packs are the most popular ones but were not chosen for the top of our ranking, right? We can give you another reason. When you open a 100k pack you can only pull one Ronaldo while when you open two 50k packs you have the chance to pull two of these cards. Yes, we know that will never happen but it is still possible at least with other high rated players.

ULTIMATE PACK
Cards: 30 | Players: 30 | Rare: 30 | Gold: 30

The Ultimate Pack was released for the first time in FIFA 16 and it is now one of the favourites of the FIFA community, just like the Jumbo Rare Players pack. Usually, it is available during the most popular FUT events of the season.

RARE PLAYERS PACK
Cards: 12 | Players: 12 | Rare: 12 | Gold: 12

Once again, the 50k, 100k and 125k are the best packs money can buy. The Rare Players Pack is the one you will find more times in the store.

JUMBO RARE PLAYERS PACK
Cards: 24 | Players: 24 | Rare: 24 | Gold: 24

There is no reason why 100k packs are viewed by the community as much better than the 50k packs. In fact, it is very easy to compare them: double of the cards, double of the price.

ULTIMATE PACK
Cards: 30 | Players: 30 | Rare: 30 | Gold: 30

We are almost at the end of our guide and we almost forgot to give you our best advice: don’t buy packs. They are a waste of your money. Even these Ultimate Packs are too expensive, especially when you can trade or buy coins directly.

  1. Oh another thing. Today’s promo is 12500 coins for premium gold players and rare gold packs. Rare mega packs is 27.5k

  2. Qn: Can I buy packs in the store but open them at a later time? Like is there an option to place them in My Packs folder?

  3. Is it okay in FIFA RUKES If I help my friends in getting more coins in exchange for players by buying them higher?

      • Okay but I contacted EA support and one advisor told me that you must not use the BUY NOW option when getting player for usually high price from your friend/brother otherwise you will be banned.
        Also I was told that if you buy the player from your friend/brother for higher price than the player’s avg price then you will be banned too.

        Please valid this fact.

  4. “They are a waste of your money. Even these Ultimate Packs are too expensive, especially when you can trade or buy coins directly.”
