Q & A Tuesday – Week 29
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!
Would buying informs of TOTS cards at a lower price and reselling them later on be viable like last year?
Possibly. I’ll be researching investments for that event closer to when the time comes.
Chief, if there are cards in “unassigned” section, is it possible to open packs (for example from wl rewards)?? Asking because I want to go all in with your ajax vs psv mm prediction and I am curious if I can open wl rewards after investing =)
No, if you have players in your ‘Unassigned Pile’ you won’t be able to open any packs.
Ok, thanks Chief
Chief, what kind of SBC you think are more worth doing? League, Icon, Advanced, Live….
The advanced SBCs tend to be the most profitable. Use FUTBIN’s SBC Cost Predictions and the FIFA Pack Values Spreadsheet to analyze which SBCs are most worth it.
For example, the ‘It Takes Eight‘ SBC costs around 7k. The reward for completing it is a Prime Gold Players Pack, which has an average value of 7,350 coins. Compare prices and see which SBCs have the best value based on cost/reward.
Do you think it will be still possible to get some discard ajax and psv investments on thursday after wl rewards? (Already bought 50 gold frankie de jong and ramseelars for discard price)
Maybe some, but I doubt you’ll be able to get more than 50 for discard.
Ok, so will not give a fuck about wl rewards and open it later, and invest now. Thanks
I have bought many sung informs,
you still think son can get potm? should i keep them?
I sold off my Sung informs a while ago for 20k+. Son isn’t a clear favorite (I think Salah will win it again), so there won’t be as much hype surrounding him leading up to the announcement.
I have a problem with clearing expired items from my target list (on mobile app)… I can’t clear it nor assign… Any tips?
This is how it looks like…
I would just hit clear expired and see what happens. If you won them like the green check mark indicates, they shouldn’t just disappear.
I never use the mobile app – I use the web app instead. Not sure if this will be of any help, but on the web app there is a ‘Clear Expired’ or ‘Unwatch’ option to rid you expired cards from the target list.
If there is someone else who uses the mobile app, perhaps they can chime in?
The problem concerns the web app as well as mobile app. (I use both)
I have the same issue every now and then. The only solution I’ve found is to connect to FUT on the console, then to clear whatever items are stuck. It doesn’t work on the web app or the mobile app, but it does on the console, at least for me.
Yeah, but if I clear stuck items using console, will it clear items also on my web app?
Yes it should.
When do you think will be a good time to invest in normal 83,84s for TOTS?
The upgrade SBCs end next week, so they will drop in price then so long as EA doesn’t release them again.
I bought a number of 81 rated IF Tomkins on minimum bid a few weeks ago thinking that they might make a nice investment for POTM SBC’s. From reading your latest TOTW investment post I see that 81 rated informs could also be a good shout for TOTKS SBC’s also.
For what SBC event do you predict Tomkins could be most profitable? Does the fact TOTS is coming soon set a hypothetical profit cap on POTM investments?
TOTKS SBCs will likely have more demand than POTM SBCs, so they should rise more for that. The fact TOTS is approaching shouldn’t effect their prices too much as they are valued because of their SBC usability, not because of their in-game usability. Take inform Castillo from FIFA 17 as an example – he shot up in price because of the TOTKS SBCs.
Ok, thanks for the tip. Being that I’m already in the black on Tomkins I’m quite happy to wait for TOTKS.
In regards to my question about investment profit being capped due to the upcoming TOTS, I was asking in relation to the fact that Salah already has a legion of IF and POTM cards and will be getting a much higher rated card upon TOTS, all of which surely dilutes his desirability and thus the demand for POTM investment cards? Alternatively, will the effect of the upcoming TOTS be negligible and will the demand for POTM Salah be as high as his previous POTM cards?
Yes, even more so considering Salah’s upgrades can’t get a whole lot better – that card was already TOTS caliber 2 months ago. Your best bet is that Tomkins is required for some TOTKS SBC.
Also, don’t forget that POTY cards will be coming out in a couple weeks, and Salah is likely to win that as well.
Ah yes, I’ll keep an eye out and thanks for the tip.
Whats your take on, when a player gets his TIF, how much does it usually affect the prices on his SIF and IF ? Is there a pattern?
This example, im thinking on Pogba, after his two goals yesterday. When, in the hype on him getting a TIF, will prices be on the lowest? During the game, right after the game, or the hours before TOTW is revealed?
Like I said above, we are selling in the hype with this investment before the announcement, not after. Past Marquee Matchups from smaller leagues that were highly likely to be chosen have had bronze/silver players rise to 500+ coins in the hype. So, your return on investment with bronze/silvers is 150% if you buy them at 200 coins. To have the same ROI, golds would have to rise to 875 coins, which is far less likely.
Prices of the highest rated versions of a player go down after a player has a good performance. For example, Pogba’s 2IF was the best version of that card on the market. It was 710k yesterday, and it has now dropped to 665k. It will continue to drop leading up to the TOTW announcement on Wednesday. It is my experience that players like this drop to their lowest prices in the 2 hours following the TOTW announcement, so between 3-5PM UK time on Wednesday.
I’ve outlined an investing strategy for this on the High Risk Trading page.
