Q & A Tuesday – Week 46
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!
Hey chief, been off fifa for a few months so trying to get back into the swing of working the transfer market again. I packed an 85 rated TOTW Kolarov. Noticed that around Jul 11th most TOTW 85 rated defenders fell into the low 20k range in price. Is there a reason that this happened, and is there any reason to expect that his price should go back up soon? Trying to decide whether to hold onto him or sell him now. Additionally has TOTW investing changed as all in the past 4 months or so. Thx.
There were guaranteed TOTW SBCs that came out on July 10th; that is what caused them to decrease. Today, EA released another guaranteed TOTW SBC which has caused them to dip again.
There will not be another TOTW until August 14th and hasn’t been one since June 26th. These factors have changed TOTW investing.
As for Kolarov, I would sell and invest elsewhere.
Thanks for the response, answered exactly how I wanted. Since I’m out of the loop currently, what seems to have been the most profitable investment strategies during futties? Have gold card investments for cards out of packs due to ‘Best of Packs’ been reliable? Thanks chief!
Gold cards for the ‘Best of Packs’ have been the most reliable strategy recently, yes. Investing has been slightly tricky otherwise.
Additional question chief, I’m debating subscribing. Could you please explain to me what your CBP extension feature is?
It shouldn’t be available; that was my mistake. I updated patreon.
I was asking because I’m trying to decide between getting a gold or silver subscription. CBP is listed as the additional benefit to getting gold, so I was just wondering what exactly is that.
Do you have a mobile app for your site or something i just subbed to your patreln
I do not have a mobile app for the site. You can find all your benefits through patreon.
Do you think that informs Will rise back up after totw sbc? Im thinking about investing in 84 20k players do you think its worth it?
I don’t think they will rise when the SBC finishes considering TOTW will be returning on August 14th – there won’t be a lack in supply like last time.
What do you think about benzema and da costa before the “best of packs”?
I like Benzema more than Da Costa – he is a bit too low rated.
Hello. The next week I will not play fut. Yesterday I sold all of my premier league tots. Is it better to re buy all of my tots today, or in a week when I will start playing again? Thank you and sorry for my english.
I would wait to buy until the 11th/12th after next weekend’s WL.
Hey Chief, I have just looked to find that my tots savanier has dropped from 200k to 50k in a matter of hours. same for my tots oblak and cazorla. Why has this happened? should i sell them now to avoid further loss?
Their TOTS cards went back into packs. I tweeted warning about it yesterday. Most of the damage has already been done, but I still think they will go down further as they are in packs for another 2 weeks.
For the Best of Packs, and gold card investing in general, what percent increase in price do you usually like to aim for before selling
There is no set percentage. Sell when you are happy with the profit. They will likely continue to increase for the 2 weeks they are out of packs.
Hey Chief, I just packed TOTS Witsel and Bem Yedder. Their prices tanked drastically to 90k and 375k respectively. Should I hold on to them hoping for a rebound or sell ASAP?
I don’t think they will rebound any time soon.
Do you think players from Paris/ Rennes is good investment because they may be in the marquee matchups?
Marquee Matchups are too difficult to predict to be worth investing in. First, you have to hope that EA includes them. Then, you have to hope that the requirements are specific enough to cause the cards you invested to rise. You might guess right once in a while, but overall it’s a gamble.
Hi chief. When should i sell my mbappe toty his price is only now 3.5 mill will it go back up or should i sell now? Thanks
I don’t think it will go back up, no.
This is my squad rn: https://www.easports.com/fifa/ultimate-team/web-app/?showoffId=jwIZBcI3nQXJN:FFA19PS4 . Any upgrade suggestions for a 1M budget?
Do you think hazard Europa MOTM will drop down if hazard will get a futties card today?
Do you recommend to sell him before that?
Likely yes, I think it will have a trickle down effect from top to bottom.
just wanted to know which edition of fifa 20 are you going to buy?
Typically I get the champions edition. The early access is great, and the additional packs of ultimate aren’t necessary.
Do you think Sandro flashback SBC will be available again ?
I have no idea.
Hey chief, just a general question. What days of the week are cards generally at their highest and lowest prices, and what are the main factors. And are there any special case factors that effect when cards will be higher or lower other than sbcs. Thanks
Typically prices are higher on Thursdays/Fridays as people buy their WL squads and lower on Sundays/Mondays as they sell them. Big pack opening events like Black Friday, TOTY, and TOTS cause the market to fall.
