NBA LIVE 19’s Ultimate TeamTM is one of the most immersive and fun experiences the game has to offer. In it, you have the ability to build a customized and competitive Ultimate Team.
When creating their teams, some LUT players try to grab the greatest players from their favorite team and create an all-time lineup. Others see this as a chance to pair players they’ve always wanted to see take the hardwood together, and then have them square up against opponents. The reason why LUT is so popular is because players have the chance do it their way.
To help you make informed decisions in building the team you want to play with, this year we are introducing a new change when purchasing player packs in the store, display pack probabilities in the store prior to purchasing in NBA LIVE 19. The goal with showing pack probabilities in LUT is to help you make decisions on where you want to invest your coins and time. Probabilities will help provide you with more detail on the likelihood of what you will get in packs you purchase. While NBA LIVE 19 received many new upgrades and features, the store should look generally the same to returning gamers. You’ll now just have an additional tool to keep building your team.
By going into the store in LUT and hitting View Details, you’ll be able to see the pack probabilities before officially selecting a pack.
How Pack Probabilities Work
The main page for each pack will show you how many items are in it. The View Details 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 75 or above. That means it will give you at least one player that’s 75+ rated. Any category of players or items listed at 100 percent will always be awarded to you. Every pack description in the LUT 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.
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 a certain category. 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.
Live Ultimate Team is a live service and we are looking to improve every day. This means being open to player feedback at all times.
