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.

1. Coins

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 ( ). 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.
Uranium DepositI'd recommend mentioning that getting an IF player by opening a pack on the webapp will not gain the achievement - at least that is my understanding.

STYes this is true, I will add this!
Posted by ST on 15 Oct 12 at 12:41
CormacI didn't think that this achievement was in this years game but decided to find out what the secret one was anyway. Gutted. Took bloody months last year. What is even more annoying is that I got a bronze IF in the first pack I opened on the web app about a week before the game came out.
Posted by Cormac on 17 Oct 12 at 11:03
STThat is so unfortunate...but hey stay tuned to happy hours and stack up on coins and I'm sure you'll get another one! Also remember that towards the end of FIFA 12's reign they changed this achievement to unlock if you found any summer transfer player, that is, a player who has gone to a new club and they have released a new card for him. So if it does take you forever, it's not the end of the world. We'll all get there eventually.

This achievement is a c**t... Never bothered with UT until 13 so it's new for me... nice guide anyway, +1
Posted on 19 Oct 12 at 13:31
Got it, finally!
Posted on 21 Oct 12 at 06:37
DyAssAnother way to get the achievement is to stay patient. In the next few months, EA will probably update the Ultimate Team players. Similar to Fifa 12, you will be able to unlock the achievement by picking an updated player, which are several hundreds (!!!). Check out this link to see the updated players of Fifa 12:
After this update, I unlocked the achievement with my second bronze pack I opened. For further information, check out the solution guide of ArdentShaar in Fifa 12.
Posted by DyAss on 22 Oct 12 at 10:51
STYes I am hoping that they do this for this game as well. But still, I would love to see it pop after finding an in form. I've literally opened hundreds of packs. At some point it just comes down to luck.
Posted by ST on 23 Oct 12 at 00:36
Uranium DepositIf you're going to try using bronze packs, best to wait for a week that has more than one player in the TOTW
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 23 Oct 12 at 14:21
Hedi, i'd personally avoid bronze packs if you're doing this now. TOTW usually only has one bronze player, whereas most are gold with a few silvers. I don't mind admitting I used MSP to get this achievement because I find the coins harder to make when wanting to buy gold packs. Bronze packs have such a small chance of giving you an in form player, you could try it all year. Gold premium packs are the quickest way logically.
Posted on 25 Oct 12 at 10:33
SamphaaSpent 600k and had nothing so far, 200k on bronzes :-(
Posted by Samphaa on 26 Oct 12 at 18:20
i opened more than 200 bronze and 50 gold packs so far and still no inform player :( is there any chance to find one ?
Posted on 29 Oct 12 at 21:20
Uranium DepositDitto for me plus at least 50 silvers. There was a happy hour today, but it didn't have an increased chance of finding a player.
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 30 Oct 12 at 01:56
STThe thing with the bronze packs is, you can open an insane amount of them and barely lose any money. Selling your fitness cards for 200 buy now, rare fitness cards for 1,700 buy now, and rare players for 200 buy now, you shouldn't lose very much money! I have just been quick selling the rest. I opened around 50 today and lost 10k. If you think your chances are so much better using gold packs, you are wrong. I have gone through way way way more microsoft points than I would like to admit without getting a thing. The way I see it, bronze is looking pretty good. Silver is also not bad.
Posted by ST on 30 Oct 12 at 15:31
Uranium DepositYes bronze is the way, but it does require a lot of patience. Also, make sure there is actually a bronze player in the TOTW.
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 30 Oct 12 at 16:59
Uranium Deposit^ Assuming transfers count the same way this year.
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 30 Oct 12 at 21:31
Hedi 38600: yes, i agree with you, i opened more than 400 bronze packs and no TOTW player so far. so we shouln't be in hurry for this achievement
Posted on 03 Nov 12 at 15:58
alanduffy101I finally got an in form (silver) tonight...nothing i have to play a game with him in my team as putting him in the squad didn't work.
Posted by alanduffy101 on 02 Jan 13 at 23:26
Uranium DepositIt should unlock when you purchase the pack on your xbox. Sorry to hear mate.
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 03 Jan 13 at 03:58
JezamiahJust to note that EA are greedy cunts and during happy hour THEY DON'T increase the chance of getting an in form so the only benefit of sticking around for happy hour is the more expensive packs which i'm not sure are better tbh,

I got this cheevo early on opening the 7500 pack. Got IF Gyfil Sigurdsson.
P.S i have never got a bronze or Silver IF on any fifa despite opening 600+ bronze packs. I have got several gold IF.

My tip is to wait until there are a few low rated IF like 75-80 as they will be more common and try your luck then
Posted by Jezamiah on 10 Jan 13 at 16:55
Uranium DepositYou are right, they don't increase the odds (card weight) most of the time, but the chance of pulling a rare are often better as there are more rares in the special packs and per amount spent.
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 10 Jan 13 at 17:47
alanduffy101No need to feel sorry for me anymore uranium, not only did i get another IF but a Team of the Year!!
Result :)

Posted by Uranium Deposit on 11 Jan 13 at 20:07
STWell I have dumped every dollar I had on these packs. Must have opened literally over 1,000 prem. golds. I honestly am about to give up
Posted by ST on 12 Jan 13 at 06:56
STI FINALLY GOT IT. Screamed like a little fucking baby. Bracalli, IF goalkeeper. Literally quicksold him. Took maybe 1,000 premium gold packs, no exaggerating. Finally done with this stupid ultimate team bullshit. Good luck my friends.

Uranium DepositWell that's going to piss alot of people off. Congrats Morning!
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 12 Jan 13 at 16:49
STYeah that bothered me quite a bit. Yesterday I'm pretty sure I found every transferred player there was. It's obvious why they did it though, they think it will make more people buy FIFA points. EA will do anything if they think it'll make them a buck.
Posted by ST on 13 Jan 13 at 09:47
Ginn0rzI'm hoping there's an outside chance that the transferred players will count once after the transfer window closes on 31/01/13.
Posted by Ginn0rz on 14 Jan 13 at 11:00
MunhumutapaIs it true that the player on the cover determines the players you get?
I have stopped opening the green guy, or Soldado, Or Joe Hart,
Infact i almost always open Marchisio, and lately Messi, but no luck, and it does look like i am now getting the same players over and over again.
Has anyone else ever done this (opening the same cover player on Bronze, Silver, Gold)
Posted by Munhumutapa on 14 Jan 13 at 23:49
Uranium DepositI have, still random as I would expect. I think it is more along the lines of some people feel a certain player increases their chances, as they have some sort of attachment to them.
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 15 Jan 13 at 00:55
january is over, anyone got transferred player and the cheevoe after that?
Posted on 01 Feb 13 at 12:31
Claudio 10 Juvei hope the transferred player method will work after that:

Posted on 07 Feb 13 at 18:28
I have enough coins for 70 packs now.. 525k in coins. PLEASE GOD LET ME GET THIS NOW!
Posted on 12 Feb 13 at 00:43
A note: when ever I see a happy hour posted online it states that there is NO DOUBLE CHANCE. :(
Posted on 12 Feb 13 at 00:58
A 0 A LaurenceIf you are good at Ultimate Team then just keeping winning the division 1 title which gives you 8,000 coins plus the coins you get from the 7 games you win (which is required for the title or 6 wins and 3 draws). Then at the end of season use the coins to buy a prem gold pack, rinse and repeat.

Luckily I have a beast Spanish Team so I could win a title every night and it means your not spending any real money on packs.

It will probaly take a long time but its free and lets hope I can get an inform with this method before Fifa 14 lol. Good luck guys :)
Posted by A 0 A Laurence on 19 Feb 13 at 09:47
finally got it after opening 2340 packs (including approximately 400 bronze and 15 silver packs), but i got it from a gold pack
Posted on 25 Feb 13 at 05:18

A 0 A LaurenceCongrats! Best I got in the happy hour on saturday was Kompany and I sold him for 43K. On my most recent pack Simao's name appeared I jumped up and down in joy as he was inform only to return to my seat to find that i got the normal version, I hate this the IF versions should replace the normal versions for that week!
Posted by A 0 A Laurence on 04 Mar 13 at 12:18
That is painful, Laurence. I want a Kagawa IF. Hopefully I get him next week (if he is in).

Double chance in 1 hour -
Posted on 05 Mar 13 at 16:55
CakauThis stupid achievement is just a way that EA found to enforce achievements hunters like us into spending real money in packs... And since EA is the most mercenery developer EVER, I'm pretty sure this cursed achievement will be in all fifa games from now on... Sad but true!
Posted by Cakau on 10 Mar 13 at 22:01
No more fifa if this or similar luck based cheevs are in it. I can not take any more of this crap :(
Posted on 11 Mar 13 at 00:45
NmE War EagleConsidering I got the FIFA 12 version of this achievement (about 10 days ago) on my second pack opening in that game (a Bronze Premium pack, btw), I'm wondering if it might not be a better strategy to just wait until after FIFA 14 comes out to try to get this achievement.

I get the feeling that EA (while sometimes being major douches on the achievement front) takes mercy on those of us who have never gotten this achievement - and they expand the "list" of players that will cause this one to pop after the next game releases.

It seems like people went to extraordinary effort to get this same achievement in FIFA 12 - and I exerted no effort at all to get it. Rather than spend massive amounts of time collecting coins & opening packs, I'm thinking I'm just going to wait until I start seeing people going "I got this on my first/second pack opening!" & then I'll give it a try.
Posted by NmE War Eagle on 27 Mar 13 at 21:07
Uranium DepositIn FIFA 12 "transfer players" counted toward the achievement, therefore it was easier to get from the beginning (after August transfers and then even moreso after January transfers). In 13 there has been no indication that these cards will unlock the achievement, even after the hundreds of transfer cards being placed into packs since mid February. Trust me, start working toward this ASAP as it could take months to get it.
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 27 Mar 13 at 21:37
H3rmitardThe best chance of getting one easily, is after then end of the season - May, after that its pretty hard to release a team of the week when no one plays - I am fairly sure thats when i got in in Fifa 12 too
Posted by H3rmitard on 07 Apr 13 at 17:09
NmE War EagleYeah - I would totally NOT be surprised if what you have proposed turns out to be true, Weener. I'm just going to be patient & wait. I have the strong feeling this achievement is about to get a ton easier.
Posted by NmE War Eagle on 19 Apr 13 at 16:48
H3rmitardjust like to add a bit more to what i just said as i just looked back at this and realized i didn't exactly explain - at the end of the European season (In about 3 weeksish), EA, will HOPEFULLY, do what they did last year and open the In form category to any player who was transferred in January, or last summer (I think) Just as they will be unable to produce a team of the week, when no-one physically plays, obviously, this will probably come after the team of the season, and league teams, that will probably be released
Posted by H3rmitard on 22 Apr 13 at 22:21
Uranium DepositLast year transfers counted toward the in-form achievement the whole year. Even August transfers. That is why it was so fast to unlock and people called it the "Bronze pack glitch". People were getting in-form players, just didn't realize it cause they were low-tier transfers.
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 23 Apr 13 at 01:31
xPut Name HerexThey still have Teams of the Week. They'll also do Teams of the Season and the like, but not all football stops in the summer. The MLS continues on. There is also the CONCACAF Gold Cup, the Confederations Cup, World Cup Qualifiers, etc. They will pull players from those tournaments/leagues and use them for TotW over the summer.
Posted by xPut Name Herex on 25 Apr 13 at 06:25
H3rmitardNo, I do gather that, but considering the majority of the players of FIFA tend to be from Europe (just out of experience. not saying that no one else from anywhere else doesn't) sort of suggests that they might, but considering this year has more tournaments, and the World Cup qualifiers, does lower the chances of this happening which is gay as.
Posted by H3rmitard on 25 Apr 13 at 11:17
xPut Name HerexThey did that last summer, as I recall. The TotW players, after a brief "Team of the Season" or "Team of the League" time period, were composed of players in the MLS, or player in the EURO Cup.

EA did not "open up" transfer players into the in-form category in the summer last year. There was a glitch from Day 1 where transfer players counted as in-form in FIFA 12. This became more noticeable after the January transfer window, as the transferred cards were released, and then during the summer transfer window, as more and more transfer cards were added.
Posted by xPut Name Herex on 26 Apr 13 at 05:15
Uranium DepositExactly; that is what I was saying. There is no reason to hold off, other than the possibilty of a greater availability of lower-tier TOTW players from MLS.
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 26 Apr 13 at 06:16
Br0xigarSo guys what do i do ? open bronze , silver or gold ?
Posted by Br0xigar on 27 Apr 13 at 22:07
Uranium DepositGold or bronze, but (almost) never silver.
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 27 Apr 13 at 22:35
Atomic OdinI'm done with this bs achievement now. Spent over 1 million coins on packs trying for gold, silver and bronze ones and got nothing. Just glad I've not wasted any real money on ms points trying to get it.
Posted by Atomic Odin on 14 May 13 at 16:11
NmE War EagleOk, got this today. A couple of notes (based on my own experience achieving this):

I got this on a TOTW/TOTS release day (i.e. the day they announce and first put a new TOTW/TOTS out. My guess is I got this buying around 100 packs (and less than 300k coins total). Most of those packs (90+%) were gold.

My guess is it got (slightly) easier recently, since they are now releasing two teams of the week at the same time. I figure that's at least doubling your odds of getting - if not greater. So - if at all possible - buy packs on release day. I technically got it about 4 hours after they released the new teams - so you don't necessarily have to buy during the first hour - but you probably need to buy the first day. (This is based on the fact that you see a crapload of tweets posting pictures of their "in-forms" the first day or say, but they taper off drastically the rest of the week.)

I was buying 5 to 7 packs most days that I was trying to get this cheevo. The day I got it, I bought on release day, and it was my 4th pack (of 7 intended buys). So: buy on release day; limit yourself to a set number of pack buys. If you don't get it within that limit, it's just not your day - try again the next week.

Finally, I was seriously surprised I got this cheevo. My sincere expectation was that it was going to get a helluva lot easier to get this achievement in a month or two. I still believe that. I think EA is going to make it easier to get this achievement in about a month. So if you haven't gotten in yet - wait until the summer. I almost bet you'll start seeing people post that they got it on their "first bronze pack" or some such. I could be wrong - but I doubt it.

Anyhow, luck based achievements still suck!! But good luck getting it anyway!!!
Posted by NmE War Eagle on 16 May 13 at 03:52
NmE War EagleMethinks the odds have changed. This guy:

has apparently gotten 7 IF's in less than a week.
Posted by NmE War Eagle on 20 May 13 at 17:48
LuckyKantJust got mine. I never thought I would see the day

Kevin De Bruyne, 80, RW ,Werder Bremen

Looked at him on the Auction page. No-one is paying more than 10k though. I quick sold him for 9,760 coins. Deal :)

Wanted a TOTS Ronaldo / Messi though. That would have got me bug bucks. Not that I am complaining.

Good luck everyone else
Posted by LuckyKant on 14 Jun 13 at 21:36
dannyleek547I've sold my whole team and club for 200k, spent it all on gold packs to no avail.

Scraped together a bronze team and played my way to 50k, spent it all on silver packs...nothing still.

Built a cheap Gold team and played my way to 150k, spent it all on Bronze packs, nothing still!!

This evening I caved in and bought 200k of coins, spent it all on silver premium packs, and still got nothing!

ARGH! If anyone is selling their Ultimate Team coins, please let me know. Or if anyone is in the same boat as me, these guys actually relaiably sell coins;
Posted by dannyleek547 on 20 Jun 13 at 21:13
dannyleek547One question...are TOTW players limited in packs? For example, only 50 and then they are gone? So if I go nearer the end of the week will there be less for me to possibly get in a pack?
Posted by dannyleek547 on 20 Jun 13 at 21:13

Posted by Robhill on 23 Sep 13 at 22:20
RobhillI don't think it does. The last team of the week was the 11th until the 18th and no one has got it since then
Posted by Robhill on 24 Sep 13 at 07:06
LuckyKantThere is not a new team of the week, so this is unobtainable. The TOTW ended on the 18th
Posted by LuckyKant on 24 Sep 13 at 08:50
RobhillAbsolute joke. The game hasn't even been out a year yet and has unobtainables!? I've bought FIFA and played it every year since 95 but I've finally had enough. I'm done with FIFA
Posted by Robhill on 24 Sep 13 at 08:53
LuckyKantThe first team of the week is available in 14. I have Early Access. Thankfully this piece of sh*t achievement is not in 14.
Posted by LuckyKant on 24 Sep 13 at 09:01
RobhillYeah but everyone who didn't get it in FIFA 13 can't now
Posted by Robhill on 24 Sep 13 at 10:58
LuckyKantIt doesn't work in the same way.

In 12, you can unlock the achievement if you get a standard player that has transferred to a new club in a pack after the transfer window in January.
Posted by LuckyKant on 24 Sep 13 at 16:07
RobhillThe players are still available but if you get them now they come as regular players and not team of the week players. Meaning this achievement is impossible.
Posted by Robhill on 24 Sep 13 at 16:30
RobhillThat's what you'd think but that team of the week only applies for that week. If you got one of those players now he would just be a regular card. I've spoken to a few people who've got them since the 18th and they've just been regularly cards. And also notice that no one on this site has got this ach since the 18th too
Posted by Robhill on 24 Sep 13 at 16:43
LuckyKant@demon - in fifa 12, you could get the achievement via an in form or a player who transferred to a new club during the january transfer window.

In 13, you must get an in form player.
Posted by LuckyKant on 24 Sep 13 at 17:38
RobhillPetition here to get it turned back on...
Posted by Robhill on 24 Sep 13 at 17:56
LuckyKantThey are no more TOTW players. The TOTW players are available for a 7 day period (give or take a few hours). Once that time is up, new players are available. In this case, their is no new TOTW, so no TOTW cards.

It sucks. EA should keep a TOTS so people can still get it.
Posted by LuckyKant on 24 Sep 13 at 18:42
RobhillI spoke to the EA guy on twitter and got the below response so not looking good

@AskEASupport: @robhill311 If there are no further #TOTW players in packs for #FUT13 and you haven't gotten the achievement yet, it won't be possible. ^EX

LuckyKantI have it but I will support you guys. They should have a Team of the Season something.
Posted by LuckyKant on 25 Sep 13 at 16:49
RobhillI don't know who else to talk to. There was a problem with a FIFA 12 achievement similar to this and a guy from this site spoke to the EA twitter account who helped solve the issue. But as you can see above the EA twitter guys seem very uninterested to help

RobhillI did already. He said the guy who helped him was the very guy who pretty much told me to go away on twitter
Posted by Robhill on 25 Sep 13 at 20:13
LuckyKantKeep trying.
Posted by LuckyKant on 25 Sep 13 at 20:17
RobhillI kicked up a bit of a stink on the easupport feed on Twitter and the guy has advised me that he has emailed the studio responsible to fingers crossed. It anyone wants to help encourage EA along then tweet @askeasupport
Posted by Robhill on 26 Sep 13 at 15:54
RobhillNot looking good

@AskEASupport: @robhill311 The Studio has confirmed that #TOTW IFs will only be in #FUT14 from now on. No further #TOTW IFs for #FIFA13. I'm sorry. ^EX

RobhillI've been trying to fight the cause further on twitter but am getting no support from this guy
Posted by Robhill on 27 Sep 13 at 16:20
St1ng rReally disappointed in EA, you would think they would try and sort this especially as they have just released FIFA 14. People have spent lots of money in trying to find a team of the week player only for the achievement to be pulled before even the new one is released. Leaves a bad taste and will make people think twice about supporting Ultimate team in future.
Posted by St1ng r on 27 Sep 13 at 19:37
RobhillI'm having a go at a guy on their customer chat at the moment. Suggest as many of you raise this as possible and get our voices heard. I've echoed this on the play station site too
Posted by Robhill on 27 Sep 13 at 20:32
RobhillWhat we need is for this site to feature the story as news on their homepage to gather more awareness. As I bet most FIFA players haven't even realised yet
Posted by Robhill on 28 Sep 13 at 08:55
sm182Yeah first I've heard of this was from somebody online yesterday, sucks as I only need this and the 85 mil. I'll try to help as best as I can.

wellingtonbalboReally bad news:
Posted by wellingtonbalbo on 30 Sep 13 at 17:17
RobhillIgnore that guy, I've spoken to him too and he's well rude. We've got better news on the forums so keep spamming them. If you notice in his answer to you he just keeps saying there will be no more totw. Well it's not the totw we are after, it's the achievement, so if EA can find another way for us to get the achievement then it doesn't matter if we get another totw or not
Posted by Robhill on 30 Sep 13 at 17:25
LuckyKantThey should continue with TOTW but they should not make it easier to get i.e. buy the achievement.

It should be the same criteria.
Posted by LuckyKant on 30 Sep 13 at 17:34
RobhillI don't really mind what they do as long as they make it possible to get the achievement
Posted by Robhill on 30 Sep 13 at 17:35
wellingtonbalboRobhill, I agree with you, I caught by surprise with this unobtainable cheevo, really piss off because of this shit.

We need to know who contact for get this achievement, some developer of FIFA 13 maybe.. I really want help but don't know how =/
Posted by wellingtonbalbo on 30 Sep 13 at 17:42
St1ng rThis really needs a news item on the main page - how do we bring it to the attention of the people who run the site?

Agree with whet everyone says, we should be able to obtain all achievements still and maybe that act of goodwill will change people's perception of EA.
Posted by St1ng r on 30 Sep 13 at 19:20

Andreabn90guys but you have to buy packages to find this damned player if I opened a large number of packages but nothing!
Posted by Andreabn90 on 11 Nov 13 at 12:29
HingedMonsterHow do you know what players are currently "In form"? I don't know whether to buy bronze, silver or gold packs.
Posted by HingedMonster on 17 Nov 13 at 13:58
LuckyKantLook at the team of the week
Posted by LuckyKant on 17 Nov 13 at 14:30
RickyGBirdWould totally appreciate any spare coins thrown this way. I've spent far too much time and money trying to get this, to no avail so far.

I would say about approx 30-40 gold packs shock
Posted by RickyGBird on 27 Nov 13 at 13:42
WiznyattDoes anyone have a suggestion on the best pack to buy to gain this achievement now? I checked out the in form team and it's made up of mostly gold and a few silver players. Would your chances be best with the Premium Gold Player Packs at 25,000 each or would my money be better spent on the Silver Premium Player Packs at 8500? You'd get more players with the silver packs, but since there are more gold in form players that might be better odds.

Any input would be appreciated.
Posted by Wiznyatt on 10 Dec 13 at 01:25
Uranium DepositNever silver.

ApostolakyCan I get an IF player in a bronze players pack now?
Posted by Apostolaky on 11 Dec 13 at 03:05
LuckyKantIs there any IF Bronze players in the current team of the week? If there is, then yes. If not, then no.
Posted by LuckyKant on 11 Dec 13 at 03:09
ApostolakyHow can i check that?
Posted by Apostolaky on 11 Dec 13 at 03:28
LuckyKantIn Ultimate Team, go to the Team of the Week and look at the current week
Posted by LuckyKant on 11 Dec 13 at 03:53
WiznyattThere are no bronze players available on Team of the Week. It looks like the Team of the Week will be the same until they shut the game down. I have not had good luck with this. I decided to just go and buy some coins on eBay, one guy sells 100K for about $5.00. In my mind I figured I could just work my job and make money rather than spend a couple of hours a day trying to work the auction house to make coins. But after about 500,000 coins spent on mostly gold premium player packs I still haven't pulled an in form. I have tried a few of the 7500 gold packs as well and a few silvers but nothing. This is irritating!

If you follow this link it shows a picture of the Team of the Week.

It's mostly gold and some silver players. I think the best odds are with the gold packs as there are just fewer gold players so even though the packs cost more you should have a better chance to pull the in form. I think it's reasonable to assume that the pool of gold players is the smallest of the the three tiers so I think staying with gold is the best option. I'd be interested in hearing what others have to say though!
Posted by Wiznyatt on 18 Dec 13 at 00:19
Uranium DepositYes, never silver. Please read my study on the odds written as a solution (not going to update it as the overall odds haven't changed much since writting)

Solution for In Form! in FIFA 13
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 18 Dec 13 at 14:38
ApostolakyI think the best option is buying 7,500 gold packs. You can sell everything you don't need (players, contracts, trainings...) and recover the coins.
Posted by Apostolaky on 20 Dec 13 at 02:08
WiznyattThanks for the info. I've probably opened about 25 Premium Gold Packs now and nothing yet. I haven't even gotten any other good players. I was hoping for someone I could auction off for 100k or something but there hasn't been anything decent. I have read Uranium's guide and it's helpful. I also agree that opening the 7500 gold pack is a good option as I was also trying to work the auction house with the contract cards and whatnot but they don't sell quickly and since you aren't guaranteed to get any rare player cards in the pack it can be frustrating.
Posted by Wiznyatt on 20 Dec 13 at 07:02
ApostolakyI've heard about some trick looking for packs showing Oxlade-Chamberlain in the front when a one with Messi is on the right side (the 25k promo pack), going back and re-entering until you meet them that way. I have opened 2 or 3 packs in these conditions and they seem to leave 80+ overall rating players and other good stuff. Maybe this trick is fake and I only was lucky with those packs, but you could give it a try.
Posted by Apostolaky on 27 Dec 13 at 01:52
WiznyattI just unlocked this today. What a bitch. I was trying to work the auction house buying Silver Premium packs (3750 coins) which you can resell most of the contents to break even and even make a little profit. But this became laborious so I just went and bought coins on eBay. For about $5.50 you can get 100,000 coins to buy about 4 Gold Premium Player Packs. Unfortunately it took about $40 in real money before I finally unlocked the achievement. If anyone is interested I made an Excel document with the pricing I used when selling things on the auction house, mostly consumables and some players. I don't know where to post it online but if you send me a message I can get it to you. Good luck!
Posted by Wiznyatt on 02 Jan 14 at 22:46
HingedMonster$40! FUCK THAT! You could've spent that on a bunch of decent games. I'll never pay real money for this shit. They got you.

S P 4 C E YI've easily opened up 2m+ of gold packs without getting this fucking achievement.

Were you all opening 7,500 coin premiums or the 25,000 player packs?
Posted by S P 4 C E Y on 19 Mar 14 at 10:39
Uranium Depositpremium packs are the way to go. For many of us there weren't player packs at the time.
Posted by Uranium Deposit on 19 Mar 14 at 15:37
sm182Out of curiosity what are people selling the contents of the 25k gold premium player packs for on average (assuming no super valuable players pop-up)? Is 6-7k normal?

I'm up to at least 200k spent on these packs and I've all but run out of coins, hope it doesn't take 2 million like SP4CEY.
Posted by sm182 on 21 Mar 14 at 23:51
Devil InsideHow do you get 2million coins?
I am opening packs every day
3750 silver and/or 7500 gold
And no in form player till now. What am I doing wrong? and how do I get money in this game bcause my team goes bankrupt...
We should buy the packs EA post recently? the 25coins packs??
Posted by Devil Inside on 10 Apr 14 at 14:19
wellingtonbalboI finally get this achievement, after spend more than 100.000 coins in packs.

My tip is: try reach the 85 millions players achievements BEFORE this achievement. Because you have more rare gold players and can sell all of them at 150 coins (starting price) in auction house and some gold contracts, you can get 15 ~ 20k in every 30 or 40 players/contracts in auction.

Another tip: don't buy the 25k premium pack, is not worth the price, always buy the 7.500 coins pack, which comes with 3 rare cards (can be players or not), I get the achievement opening this pack, I found Handanovic!

Good luck!
Posted by wellingtonbalbo on 10 Apr 14 at 14:29
NasriL11I sold all my players, got a total of 432k to spend and still no IF. Im already broke so I've given uo on the achevo. Could have been my 1st Fifa game with 1000G...

I am buying 50k coin packs per day, and selling in auction house to get even or just a bit negative. Good luck
Posted by Devil Inside on 12 May 14 at 17:33
sm182Thank you Danny Welbeck! After about 2 months of trying since I got the 85 million club value achievement I finally unlocked this yesterday in a 7.5k Gold pack.
I suggest to anybody going for this to stick to the 7.5k packs as they seem to give the better rare players than the 25k. You can also break even/turn a profit on them unlike the 25k packs.
