Q & A Tuesday – Week 45
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!
is it just me or are tots player prices decreasing?
It’s not just you – they went way up for the Iniesta/Buffon SBCs and have went down since. Yes, those SBCs are still on the market, but the demand to do them has went down since most people that wanted to complete them already have.
Hi. Chief, I have 150k. Should I hold the money to do some sbc or invest in something? The 84 rated players are going up. Is it still good to invest in those?
See this article and put some coins there as well.
If you can make transfer suggestions for this squad, what would they be? Looking for difference makers to challenge higher rated teams.
Total budget 750k – either 1 big transfer or a few “cheaper” players.
Either TOTS Son or 90 Gullit (he might be a bit out of your price range).
Any guesses on next end of era players?
Other than tots what else would you recommend investing in?
Hard to say who the next End of an Era players will be. EA could go in a lot of directions. I do think they will end with a Ronaldo EoaE, though.
Martial is a shoe-in to win the next FUTTIES for LW/LM. EA have required a player from the winner’s nation and league for past FUTTIES SBCs (Lukaku and Bakayoko). You could try investing in Koscielny as he is high rated, comes from France, and plays in the Premier League.
Any upgrades for 150k: https://www.futbin.com/18/squad/5535404
Was thinking of getting prime petit but couldn’t decide if he was better than Goretzka and whether or not he was worth the extra 100k from his 88
And would rio (88 or 85) be better than that varane card in game?
I’d stick with Varane. Goretzka is immense, no problems with holding on to him. As for an upgrade, I’d get some FoF version of Lloris.
Chief, would you be putting up an article giving tips on how to start off FIFA 19? In terms of making coins, building a team, investing, etc?
Yes, I’ll be doing more FIFA 19 material once September rolls around. I have a clear cut strategy worked out already. Our community will be in good shape.
you’re a legend! the last time i tried FUT i got fed up and gave up. this year on fifa 18, i understood it so much better by reading your material. and the advice on trading helped alot to build the decent team that i have as well.
looking forward to fifa 19 so i can get an early start! started a little late on fifa 18… thanks again!
Hey chieft, got couple of questions
1. What is going on with all the TOTs cards. They are dropping so low. And are in packs. Almost every weekend league packs that I opened had it. Do you think it will go up. I had bought some earlier and will it go up?
2. Also had bought some 84s and they are down. They did go up when the bakayako card came out, but not much. You think it will go up. Sell or buy more 84 cards???
1. The TOTS supply is hitting the market hard. They will rise if some desirable EoaE SBC comes out that requires TOTS players. However, it might not be much as it seems there is almost too much supply at this point. I didn’t expect EA to keep these players in packs for so long.
2. Wait for tonight when the Martial FUTTIES SBC drops – we could see a bump in 84s then (particularly Koscielny).
