Any suggestions on the investment in 83,84 and IFs for FUT birthday event?

Priyank Joshi

Well new to FIFA, learned a lesson. ๐Ÿ™‚

Arek

Will the gold cards (i.e. Irish players ;)) get hit on st patricks day event?

Arek

Stupid question about Irish players…, but what about other gold cards? 83’s 84’s also ๐Ÿ˜›

Arek

Ok, thanks. Can’t wait for MM Predictions ๐Ÿ˜€

Arek

Still no mm predictions? =(

Quest

Hi, is it still worth investing on gold irish player even at 1.5k each?

Arek

Do you mean only lukaku, asensio and traore otw/ptg cards? Or it concerns all otw/ptg cards??

ccsven07

Are you looking into investing in any of the current POTM cards? LLorente is at 15k.. do you think he has potential to go up like Lamela did two weeks ago? I know that his card isn’t very good but he’s Spanish in a good team in the prem…

ccsven07

On Thursday before going out of packs he was at 20k and snipping I picked him up around 17k. I bought a bunch and sold for 10k-13k profit. Appreciate your opinion

Asa Confrey

Hey man, new to this website, but love the idea, guessing your just one guy, sorry if this is offensive but how reliable are your sniping filters

HeshamK

Heyy could you like post the link for the unlimited transfer pile , cant really located it

Arek

I have the same problem… I remember that chief posted sth like that, but rly can’t dig it out =d

Alejandro

Hi mate, finally I will go with all to buy my Cr7 and if I have coins I would like buy Rui Costa.
What do you think could be the best time to buy this expensive players? Thanks mate.

Alejandro

Thanks Chief but i ask you this becouse i heard one Spanish Youtuber say early (3 weeks i think) we have a Fut Birthday event ans the market will go down already.
For that I ask you this, for know if this moment will be a good time to buy expensive players.

Alejandro

Then you recomend me buy in April?
And i was thinked to sell my team to try buy it in Fut Birthday, doy you think could be a good idea?

aviv

futchief, when sniping you recommend to try buy it now or mass bidding?

Arman

Not FutChief here but:

Sniping and mass bidding are two different methods. When sniping you use buy it now and set the price so that you profit enough when you would sell that sniped player for the lowest bin.
Mass bidding on the other hand means you bid massively (again with a profitable margin) for a player (bidding on multiple cards of that same player) and hope that some bids stick.

Hope that helps.

aviv

Thanks for your respond, I know what’s is the difference. i ask if this list is for sniping only without bidding?

Arek

Chief, what do you think of investing in high rated ifs (i.e.86 – kramaric for 37k) with hope that they will rise in anticipation of fut bthday sbcs?? Is it good idea or I should rather invest somewhere else?

Arek

According to the OTW/PTG Investing Strategy that you posted few days ago, the best time to buy the otw/ptg card is just after the match (in which the otw/ptg player had a good performance i.e. some goals and/or assists). Will you be able to post on the site which players are good buys and their target price just after the match? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ (I mean, will you be able to pass the information so quickly for us ? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have about 180k to invest in this strategy, hope that not expensive otw/ptg players such as asensio, batshuayi or coman will perform great this weekend :d

Munkage

Hey Chief,
I want a huuuge profit with a huge investment. So what can i do?
I think i should buy any card of a player and then sell them in mass at a bigger price. What do you think? What player should i invest in? (Silver i guess)

Arek

Lets say player X has an inform. Lets say the player is about to get sif. I noticed that in such a case the price of if drops down after the sif announcement. In some cases I noticed that after a couple of days the if boince back. Any advice, how to recognize if the player will bounce back or not…? What are the depends??

Chris

I think It depends on 2 things:
1. The IF must be a good card, latest examples are Savic or Son. I mean that card must be a card with whom players play WL.
2. The price of the new card. For example 86 Savic, dropped to 170k before the release of the 87 because people though they will get the new card with ~300k, it was 400k, so they realized it is too expensive and bought back his 86 for 250-260k.

Arman

To what extend do you think 83’s will rise? i picked up around 40 for 1-1,3K but now they are around 1,5K so not sure how profitable it will be now. Rather try POTM/OTW Strategy with 300K at hand?

Arman

Already have 10 coutinhos locked and loaded for POTM, fingers crossed he will be needed.
Okay will do that, also gonna try to invest in selected MM for next week.
Really like your site and the effort you put in. Thx a lot!

aviv

hey futchief, seems like I am not finding anything by snipping… should i try mass bidding? or maybe different hours? i snipe around 9-16 gmt

Chris

Hey Chief, can you tell in what type of players (don’t need players names) to invest for Fut Birthday? I will be on Vacation for almost 3 weeks, so I won’t be playing any fifa (I’m selling my team after this weekend), and I won’t really have access to the internet, so my next event will be Fut Birthday.
I have around 4mil to invest. The question is, do you recommend to invest in 85+ IF cards? 83’s/84’s normal card, 86+ normal cards? I just googled the SBC requirements from last year, and I saw the premium SBC’s would cost around 1 mil.

Arman

I tried to find a post about league SBC Investments but couldn’t find any. Since its too late for tomorrow, it would be great for april. Im guessing if they release la liga + x tomorrow then it will be bpl + x in april or vice versa, so that would minimize the long waiting time most people who invest in league sbc’s have. And then it would be really helpful to have a thread for players who will likely rise a lot.

Alejandro

Hi mate, another question for you, this year we dont have any downgrade card?

Alejandro

To bad, had some David Luiz to make some gold, thanks mate!

Arman

Coutinhoโ€˜s are up to 30K as of now. Do you think we should pull the trigger or wait until an hour before or even โ€œriskโ€œ it and sell them quickly after POTM release? Or like go half half ๐Ÿ˜‚ ?

Arman

Yeah just saw your post. Sold everyone except for one. Gonna gamble with him. Shouldโ€™ve bought more Coutinhos damn it ๐Ÿ˜…
