I compared the number of players found during last week's Happy Hour, with a regular hour. Here are some of them:

>> 9 times as many Mats Hummels
>> 20 times as many IF Ashley Young's
>> 27 times as many IF Alex Pato
>> 30 times as many IF Alexis Sanchez

The effect of the increased weights definitely showed! So.... stay tuned for more of those Happy Hours!!! As usual, they will be announced in the weekly podcast.

Well glad some people were lucky. I opened four packs, and the most valuable player I got was Di Maria, and he only went for a couple of grand!

this kinda proves how pointless buying packs is on a normal day! I got IF Diego during happy hour though.

Interesting. Especially that Hummels is the rarest of them all, even though his base card is rated pretty low.

Just do happy hour every wednesday before the new TOTW is released.

E.G.

5pm - 6pm UK time.

Thats 2 WHOLE hours of people Most addicted to trying to get their hands on an inform - Be it a last chance / Or a Chance to be the first one to get it.

Well unless you have compared this with number of packs purchased as well, these figures prove rather worthless. It is obvious to presume that people will buy more packs given the prospect of higher IF ratio.

I am pretty sure we saw an insane number of high end IFs during the TOTY release, that doesn't mean the actual chance of getting one of them was high though.

So yeah, unless we see some per pack numbers this doesn't really say anything, other than that people bought more packs than usually.

Furthermore to prove my statement, the announcement of Happy Hour occurring in a given week will depress purchase of packs outside this hour substantially. This will mean that the gap between a regular hour in this week, compared to Happy Hour, will be huge.

I have no doubt that they most likely bumped up the IF drop rate to some degree, but these data show nothing of that.

Could you clarify when the times are? I understand that they'll be announced in the weekly podcast. Does that mean Happy Hour is once a week? Is there a rough time frame for Happy Hour? I work weird hours so if any information could be shed, I'll know if I i should be spending my coins when I get home from work or before work. Or if I can at all.
