Out of my last 20 150k packs I think I've gotten one starter and I've gotten 1000 repeats. Pretty annoying but I dont expect to get all the 99's anyway it'd be too easy. But I certainly dont expect them to advertise these great prizes for predictor and then i get the same damn thing so that it's useless.

There comes a point where buying 5 star packs wont help you improve your team and that's when you have to start collecting from the bottom up. It's the only way to level up too as the achievements will give you a lot of experience points. The strategy is to buy 1 star packs then 3 star then 5 star and complete collections to get elite cards which will vastly improve your team.

If you read the NHL Superstar forums it is a huge help and you can get some rewards for visiting.

Franzen - Roy - P. Kane
McMillan - J. Carter - Erat
Boedker - Bergeron - Downie
Bergenheim - Tavares- Asham

Giordano - Michalek (got him just like everyone else did)
Whitney - Wisniewski
Klesla - Corrente

Fleury - Hedberg

My center depth is absolutely ridiculous, considering I have Weiss chilling on the sidelines as well. My LW is atrocious, while my RW would be serviceable in real life. Defense and goaltending are solid as well. All in all, this is a pretty decent team, too bad you can't shift centers to wing, or else my team would have been quite beastly. I've only had 2 150k packs, and I feel like I got some of the better players from the packs.

None of my contacts send me gifts anymore since when you click "Send Back" it takes you to the pop up window which is a hassle. Good job EA.

And apparently "Season 2" ended and I never got to do it. I completed Season 1 and it said Season 1 Ended, then 2 days ago it said "Season 2 ended".

Thanks EA

Hey I've been playing this game whenever I go on Facebook since October and I still have no idea how to get limited edition cards. Also I've bought like 20 150k packs and I've never gotten something over a 93. Is there something to do or does the quality player you get depend on what level you're at?

Random luck for cards above 93.

For LE They come randomly in certain packs for instance back in this thread someone got two with a single gold pack. I got one with I think a silver pack might have been gold I forget. You also get one for the predictor at 1500 points

They fixed the gift sending problem.
I also like what they did with the pro season 2 thing. Only problem...two huge server outages that ate up an entire day so there's some bonus card promotion for getting to the stanley cup within 6 days...yet somehow despite the fact that the 6 day clock started 3 days ago last night it said there were only two days left... someone doesn't know math. This also means they did not add time to this clock when they had two massive server outages of 8 and 15 hours.

Yup. i'm glad about the gift sending, but the outages were just killers.

Looks like I'll need to stock up on tickets before making a run at the stanley cup then?

Basically the 99 player you win for completing season 2 and winning the cup is Alex Ovechkin. Which makes no sense considering his slump. Whatever.

My team:

Ovie 99 Thornton 94 Horton 95
Booth 92 Plekanec 92 Kessel 92
Sharp 92 Vermette 90 Simmonds 92
Burrows 89 Stoll 88 Stewart 92

Markov 92 Michalek 87+1
J.Johnson 91 Byfuglien 93
Pitkanen 90 Burns 92

Rinne 98
Kipprusoff 95

Oh...and don't bother with NHL team packs. 100,000 dollars and the best player I got was Brad Winchester. BRAD...WINCHESTER! I mean I got Emerson Etem which would be cool if somehow he became a 30 goal scorer since on this game that translates into like a 95 rating.

Yup, just finished Season 2. Current team:

Ovie(99) - Kadri(72+1) - St. Louis(94)
Camalleri (91) - Datsyuk(96) - Okposo(92)
Hartnell(86) - Malkin(96) - Pominville(92)
Frolov(86) - J. Staal(92) - Gionta(90)

Streit(91) - Byfuglien(93)
Ehrhoff(89) - Myers(92)
Seidenberg(88) - Niskane(87)

J. Peters(74+1)
Miller(99)

The guys that give you plus 1 overall... I'm considering swapping them out. I imagine my overall team score would be better, would it not?

I can only assume based on your lineup that you have 90+ players waiting in the wings...so I'm thinking yeah. Do it.

I got Michalek as a +1 and he's 87 so he's a keeper.

Just started it because I saw this thread, pretty fun. Like Farmville for hockey.

Is it even possible to lose? I've won 10 in a row since starting winning 6-1 most of the time.

My best player is Kadri because I would assume they give you the top prospect of whatever team you say is your fav at the start?

Managed to beat the Pro League 2 pretty quick. Got the Ovechkin elite card.

Got a 5 star pack as soon as I beat it - Got Marc-Andre Fleury.

Trying to get to the 1 million gold achievement and then the 1.5 mil. i was at 850,000 and then went on a pack buying spree. i managed to get a limited edition card but now I'm back down to 650,000. once I get the 1.5 mil achievment im going to buy a buttload of gold packs hoping to get a limited edition or build my collection (Since I have a ton of ultimates, silvers and bronzes I really only have to get some gold and platinum.)

how do you get up so high? Just go months without spending? I'm at 2500/win in league games, and about 12k/winning the league, what level are you at, and what do you get for wins?
