TOTKS Investment: TOTGS Players
In a few weeks, EA will release the Team of the Knockout Stage team. Last year, these cards were released on April 21st. This year, the World Cup has pushed tournaments (Champions League, Europa League, etc.) up a week, so I expect TOTKS to be released on Friday, April 13th. Here is how you can best prepare for this event.
Players to Buy: Cheapest TOTGS Players (Freuler, Tosun, Canales, Kokorin, Rigoni, Silva, etc.)
Target Price: 17,500 coins
Reasoning: Like most events, EA likes to release SBCs associated with new cards. In February, we saw Tradable and Untradeable Summer/Winter OTW challenges for Winter OTW. These caused the cheapest OTW players to shoot up in price.
Similarly, when EA released new PTG cards a few weeks ago, they also promoted Tradable and Untradeable Autumn/Spring PTG challenges. Here is how the cheapest PTG prices reacted.
Last year, EA had SBCs for the upcoming TOTKS event that required a Team of the Tournament player (knockout stage or group stage) as well. Kongolo was the cheapest TOTT player at the time, and he went from 13k to 30k (Xbox).
Listed below are the current cheapest TOTGS players (follow this link for the live prices).
I expect these players steadily rise over the next few weeks in anticipation of the event, so the earlier you buy them the better.
Sell Option A: Sell in the hype a day before the event on April 12th. This will get you guaranteed, safe profit. I expect them to rise to around 25-30k for this.
Sell Option B: Sell after the TOTKS and SBC release on April 13th (offload sometime that weekend) in hopes EA has attractive challenges comparable to that of OTW and PTG. If they hit, TOTGS cards could rise to 40k or more.
