Q & A Tuesday (Wednesday) – Week 6
Apoligies! Forgot to post yesterday.
A weekly thread meant for discussion about anything and everything related to the FUT market. Pose your questions about player prices, investing and trading strategies, or upcoming events. I will answer questions as quickly as I can, but if you can respond before I do, feel free to hop in the conversation!
What price would you recommend to buy IF Bas Dost at?
Its a little late as his price is already up over 5k a few days ago. However, if you can get him close to 30k and an SBC hits that requires high rated informs, you might be in the money.
do you know any sniping filters? I currently have 35k.
thanks for taking the time to post and reply on your great website chief!
Yesterday I was trying unsuccessfully to find any. With 35k, you could try investing in next weeks Marquee Matchups. Those predictions will be released later today. As its international break, the playoff games for the World Cup are likely to be chosen. Northern Ireland v. Switzerland, Croatia v. Greece, Denmark v. Ireland, and Sweden v. Italy are among them. I’ve been buying up discard gold cards from those nations.
Not sure if its possible (because prices are always changing) but it would be interesting if you could somehow put a value on the different pack rewards for SBCs. For example, if a Marquee Matchup SBC costs 11k for 1 Jumbo Premium Gold Pack, is it worth it? An alternative idea would be to review the SBCs (especially MM) and say whether or not you’d do them if you had the coins.
I’m not sure what average pack values are, and that is some information you’d need in order to do something like this. To be honest, I never complete SBCs. Part of that is because I have awful pack luck (only packed a player over 50k once, ever), but I also think that almost always its better to invest your coins rather than gamble them on packs.
If you are ever considering completing SBCs, know that they are the most expensive the day they come out, and they decrease in price over time. So, for Marquee Matchups, it is best to do them on Monday or Tuesday after they have been out for 6 days.
Fair enough. Thanks for the advice, and nice job with the site so far
What’s more effective, mass bidding on cheap cards (less than 1k) and make a little bit at a time or pick up higher value cards and hope to make a couple thousand off of a few cards? I’ve never made it to a million, so my goal this year is to establish an effective way to invest in order to get the most bang out of my buck and achieve the million mark.
I find more success mass bidding on cheap cards. It is a more reliable method than flipping higher value cards in my opinion.
I like to filter golds from popular leagues (Serie A, Bundesliga, Prem, La Liga) and see what the cheapest BIN is going for. Then, bid on cards accordingly. You might only make 100-200 coins per player, but if you are filling up your transfer list that can add up quickly.
I have 700k in what should i invest? Maybe leroy sane motm?
I’d buy up some discard golds/silvers from nations in the Marquee Matchups predictions to start. Then on Sunday after Squad Battle Rewards are released, buy some discard players in the current TOTW. There might be some good options for POTM investing, but we will have to wait and see what prices are like Sunday. I’ll be releasing a ‘Squad Battle Rewards Watch List’ of players that I think will be good to pick up on open bid/snipe on Sunday afternoon before they are released, so you can keep an eye out for that to get specifics.
Hey fut cheif , i have 12000 fifa point and whats is the best way to spend that , i thougt to buy 80 150 fifa points packs or 120 100 fifa points pack or draft play ( too many drafts to play and I’m not a very very good player ) ? Tks
Ideally, you want to be opening your packs when there is a really solid TOTW. If it were me, I would probably hold until Black Friday; they will have good promotional packs, and EA tends to release stellar Team of the Weeks for those events.
