If you are raging over the fact that you have received a gold player from the pre-order OTW pack or that you cannot open the packs at all then you have come to the right place. We will find out what exactly went wrong and what you should be doing.
FIFA 22 Cannot Open OTW Pack | Gold Player from OTW Pack
The new OTW packs are here as promised but unfortunately, the users who have opened the packs have got nothing but a Gold Card from that pack. In case you do not know what the OTW promo is then let me explain it to you. The OTW or Ones To Watch Promo is basically the hottest transfer before the season started.
This year we will have one of the best OTW Promos of all time since both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will be there in the promo. Packing one of them will make a huge difference to your game because their stats will keep increasing based on the Team of the Weak cards they get. Yes OTW card stats change according to the player’s recent TOTW card.
However, like I said before a lot of users simply got gold cards from the preorder promo pack that they received. So what do they do now? Will they not get an OTW item as promised by EA? Or will they get another pack (which doesn’t seem likely)? On top of that, some users cannot even open their OTW promo packs. What could be the reason? There are a lot of questions running across our minds at the moment.
What should we do now?
Well, for one thing, I know EA will always make sure you get what you ordered. They will always attend to pack glitches and they will always make sure that if you have paid money for bonus items you will get them no matter what. This is one thing I personally love about EA.
With that being said let’s quickly jump back to the topic of discussion, the OTW promo. If you are actually looking for some good source of information on this then you should check out the official Twitter page of EA. This is what they had to say about the issue :
The OTW Pre-Order Player Packs were released before the promo. The Promo cards were not there in the game yet. Therefore users who have opened the packs have got gold cards and that was nothing but a glitch. These users will receive a new pack in the upcoming days. So you do not have to worry about losing your Pre-Order item.
Players who have not opened the pack yet would not be able to open the packs until the investigation on the issue is done and is fixed by EA, making sure you get the OTW players from the pack. Probably you would have to wait until the promo is released.
This was tweeted later on and addressed to all FIFA 22 users. Thanking them for reporting the issue and that they are currently looking into the matter. You can keep checking their official Twitter page for more information related to this topic and in general. I have provided the link above.
So you see, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. You will receive your pre-order items. All you need is a little patience at the moment and that is it. If this guide was helpful please let us know in the comment section below.
