Madden Ultimate Team is without question the most popular game mode in the Madden franchise.  After all, players compete all over the globe in MUT, for various cash prizes and the chance to compete for the Madden Championship.  This new feature should go a long way in helping players make the right decisions, and help build their team for continued success.

Today’s EA Blog discusses the new Madden Ultimate Team Pack Probability that will debut in Madden 19.  This gives users a better understanding of what each pack might contain, and what their odds are of getting a specific player or item.  Here are some of the key takeaways from today’s article.

How Pack Probabilities Work

The main page for each pack will show you how many items are in it. The View Info button will show you additional probability information about the pack, broken down by the likelihood of getting certain categories of Items. For instance, a pack might show that you have a 100 percent likelihood of getting a category of Items that’s rated 80 or above.

That means it will give you at least one player that’s 80+ rated. Any category of players or items listed at 100 percent will always be awarded to you. Every pack description in the MUT Store also lists how many items you will receive in total. All of this is designed so you can have the information that will help you better understand what the pack will contain.

OVR Bands

Due to the thousands of players that could appear in most packs, we are grouping ranges of players together by what we are calling OVR bands. Packs that advertise a specific type of content will either guarantee that content or provide the probability of getting it in a pack. In general, the higher an OVR band, the lower the probability of getting it.

Key Things to Remember

The probabilities listed are on a pack-by-pack basis and are not cumulative. Each pack opening is an independent event. Consecutive openings do not change the likelihood of being awarded an Item. For example, if you flip a coin three times and get heads each time, you still have a 50% chance of getting heads if you flip the coin again. With all packs in the game, you will always receive value.
