So as you all probably know, this is for finding an In-Form player in a pack. This achievement is extremely luck based, but there are a few things you can do to increase your odds.
You are going to need plenty of coins to get this achievement. In this years FIFA, I have found that making coins is actually a lot easier than it has been in the past. There is a lot of money to be made in seasons mode, so I suggest for everyone to play that the most out of any other kind of tournament. (The prize for getting relegated in most divisions is higher than the 2,000 coins you get from winning the gold cup. You get 10,000 coins for winning the division 2 title!).
Trading is also a very good way to make money. Scan the market for deals and try to buy players for much cheaper than they are worth. Then turn around and sell them for profit.
Pick any player, input his information into the auction search, and set the maximum buy now to a few thousand below what he is actually worth. This is mostly based on luck, but in can make you some serious coins.
2. Buying the packs
There are plenty of different ways you can go about this. You definitely need to stick to opening the premium packs though. The odds of finding an In-Form in a non-premium pack are extremely low.
For this achievement, I would recommend opening silver or bronze premium packs. They are far cheaper than the gold premium packs, and while the odds of finding an IF might be slightly lower due to the fact that there are usually more gold in-form players, the difference in price makes up for it. (I have opened over 50 premium gold packs to no result). If you are truly only interested in this achievement and don't care one bit about Ultimate Team, I would recommend going with the bronze premium packs. You are going to be loaded with a lot of useless players by the time you find your in-form, but this will give you more chances of finding one than any other method.
Of course if you have the funds, using microsoft points can be a very effective way of going about this achievement. It can also make you quite a few coins, seeing as how every pack you open with MSP will result in pure profit. Keep in mind that you can not open bronze packs with MSP.
3. Happy Hours
As I am writing this, there has yet to be a happy hour for FIFA 13. A happy hour is an hour where the odds of finding an in-form player are higher. As I said, there has currently been no news about happy hours, but I can promise you that there will be soon enough. To get up to date news on happy hours, I would recommend following @UltimateTeamUK ( https://twitter.com/UltimateTeamUK
). I have my mobile notifications on for all of their tweets so I am ready to pounce when there is news of a happy hour.
This achievement can NOT be obtained by buying an in-form player on the market, you MUST find one in a pack.
Important note: If you ever get a season ticket pack or a pre order pack, NEVER open it on the web app! If you happen to get an in-form in a pack that you opened on the web app, you will NOT GET THE ACHIEVEMENT! This would be devastating, so be sure to remain patient! So do not buy or open packs on the web app. Only open packs on Xbox.
If anybody has any questions or wants any help with this achievement, please let me know. This achievement is a real SOB and I will be struggling right there with you to get it.
