Q & A Tuesday – Week 21
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!
Also, follow my on Twitter if you don’t already!
Slowly selling off my 83’s for 2.5k. Made about 1 mil from OTW, what investments are you looking at now, besides POTM?
With Lunar New Year looming large on February 16th, I think it’s a good time to start liquidating after POTM. A lot of packs will be opened at that time and the market overall will take a pretty big hit. That being said, LNY weekend will be a good opportunity to buy up players.
Do you think it’s a good idea to invest in alexis sanchez OTW ? (It cost about 700k right now) Will his price rise? Or what must happen to cause his price go higher?
When he gets an inform his price should rise however 700k is already quite inflated I think it will drop more especially if a TOTW doesn’t happen soon. Neymar has better Stats and only 400k.
If he has a breakout game with a couple goals or assists, his price will rise in anticipation of a TOTW nomination. OTW investing is gambling more or less; very hard to predict who is going to score week in and week out.
Chief, any1 knows what league sbc will be released? laliga? prem? What’s the best way to invest?
I’m hoping it will be this Friday and that’s it La Liga. I have just been picking up lots of players from all the clubs in La Liga. Look through all the teams and check for minimal options for positions. I usually stick to defenders.
My guess is we will get the La Liga SBC this Friday. As for the best way to invest, buying players from clubs with limited supply is your best bet. That often means purchasing silver defenders. @GingerGamer10 put together this graphic with some options.
Tje players from this pics are already inflated… still worth to buy??
You could try using the filters La Liga/Silver/Defenders with max bid of 500-ish to get some deals.
Hi mate, i have 1M coins and im asking me what it’s the best method to win coins with that money becouse evrey weekend im focused in IF and MM but i dont know if with a lot of money we have better trades.
Thank yo so much mate.
Usually, the cheapest players have the best return on investment. Let’s consider investing for POTM.
With 1 million coins, you could choose to buy 3 Agueros, 59 IF Cervis, or 454 Otamendis. It is far more likely that your Otamendi investment will double in price, but that also takes the most work. Buying 3 Agueros would be much easier/quicker.
The people that make the most through investing are the one’s that put in the most legwork. If you are willing to grind and buy cheap players, you are going to make the most money.
Why would otamendi price will go up?
EA might require him for the POTM on Friday. He is high rated and plays for the same club and nation as Sergio Aguero.
Thanks mate, aside Aguero and Otamendi,for the potm it’s good idea too invest on players to “Independiente”, it’s a Aguero old club.
Yes, EA could require that as well. It’s a guessing game for exact requirements, but if you spread out your investments and don’t put all your eggs in one basket you should be able to make some coins. Atletico Madrid players are a good shout as well.
Wow thank you man, im learning a lot with you, myabe some day i’ll be a good investor ;).
PD: Do you think it’s worth it buy Aguero over 342k, or it’s to late?
Aguero is risky, especially since Lunar New Year will likely fall on the same day. If his base card isn’t required, his price will plummet because of both panic sellers and LNY pack promotions. I’d stay away.
Yo chief! Whats the right Price for otamendi or is it too late?
EA released the POTM nominees today, so it’s sounding like the SBCs will be next week Friday, February 16th. Otamendi’s price will likely go down when the OTW SBCs end this Friday, so I think that would be a good buy time for him. I’m hoping his price drops down to 1500-2000 coins.
Rumors are Van De Sar and Schevchenko are out tomorrow, what are some good prime icon investments?
EA tends to have requirements tied to the player’s former club and nation. Van Der Sar played for both Ajax and the Netherlands at the GK position, so center backs with those links could go up. That leaves you with de Ligt and Viergever. I’m unsure if Van Der Sar’s Prime Icon card is good enough for them to rise a ton, but they should rise a bit if EA has similar requirements to what I described.
That being said, I highly doubt EA will release Prime Icons tomorrow as they just released Prime Inzaghi and Okocha last week. They have been spreading out Prime Icon releases by 3 weeks, usually.
Chief, yesterday after totw announcement many ppl noticed otw cards wildly went down. Some time after announcement I decided to invest like a crazy. I bought 3 mkhitaryan otw (180k each), and 3 walcott otw (58k each) with hope that I can earb during their hype before next totws announcements. Do you think it was good or stupid decision? I noticed that mkhitaryan already rised to 190k, walcott stayed without change.
The market dipped as a whole yesterday. I made some purchases of big name players (e.g. 88 Mertens for 475k) as well in hopes to sell today or tomorrow as people buy their weekend league squads.
As for your OTW, think the massive supply has bottomed out their prices, so I think you made some good purchases. You can choose to either sell on the hype before their match or hold in hopes they score a goal/get an assist and sell before the TOTW announcement.
I’m not sure what you mean by saying “massive supply hasn’t bottomed out their prices”. Anyway the next part of the sentence made me happy ;d Thanks for answer
My mistake. I meant to say “has bottomed out”. I edited the comment.
Hey chief , I thinking in buy Kane toty , his normal card I’ll receive a upgrade of +2 and will be equal to the 1if and all others ifs and especial card I’ll receive a up.But I don’t know if Kane toty I’ll receive a up too.Can u help me ? tks from Brasil
Yes, Kane’s normal card and some special cards will receive upgrades. However, his TOTY will not because the “domino effect” won’t reach his TOTY rating.
I missed out on salah. Man, I should’ve bought him when he has at 335k. Was hopping he drops close to 300k. Now he is above 500k. I had bought one mbappe for 850k. When should I sell him?
When you’re happy with the profit. Keep an eye on his price leading up to and during matches as you will see spikes at those times. If he has a solid game, hold and sell a couple hours before the TOTW announcement.
When is the TOTW announcement ?
Also any recommendations on who to invest now? I got 500k

Chief. As I mentioned few comments before, I invested in otw walcotts and otw mkhitaryans. As mkhitaryan’s price rised a little bit, the price of walcott is wildly going down… Shall I panic sell or sth? Or there is still a chance that walcott’s price will rise? And what about mkhitaryan, should I still wait? ffs.. so confused hehe…
Any advice? 😀
I think Lunar New Year will present investment opportunities that are too good to pass up. I don’t think OTW Walcott or Mk will have nearly the potential ROI as LNY players, so I’d try to be as liquid as possible going into next weekend. As neither Arsenal nor Everton have matches next weekend, I’d look to sell in the hours before their matches this weekend.
Good idea, thanks. BTW, what kind of investments would you recommend during Lunar New Year?
Depends how much individual player prices go down, but most likely players from TOTW 22.
I sold al but for one otw mkhitaryan (I was late..). His price went down from 200k to 175k… shall I sell it or keep?
Arsenal don’t have another PL match until March 1st, so you could be holding a stagnant player for a while if you don’t sell. Personally, I’d probably sell and try investing elsewhere.
Hey, i bought inform Otamendi for 53 K this was when everyone was thinking it would be either Aguero or Martial & now IF Otamendi is up to 75 K should i sell in the hype for the sbc or as soon as the sbc is released?
Sell in the hype, always. When a player’s price inflates that much, that means there are tons of investors. If the SBC drops and he isn’t required, his price will skydive. If the SBC drops and he is required, you’ll be battling selling your Otamendi’s with all of the other investors. There are some cases where you are better off holding than selling in the hype, but chances are getting rid of him on Thursday or Friday will give you the best return.
Cheers to some nice profit already!
Chief, I have some higuains (bought for 60k ), niw their price rised to 75k (probably in anticipation on potm sbc aguero). Shall I sell now and take the profit or wait few days more? Whats ur advice?
I’d hold. I think POTM investments will continue to rise as the week moves forward. Look to sell Thursday or Friday before the announcement.
