Q & A Tuesday – Week 5
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!
Any way to invest in future scream promo right now?
Try picking up some cheap 83/84 in good leagues or good nations, cheap informs 81/82/83/84 with good leagues or nations also!
Not really. There were some gold cards that performed particularly well due to being out of packs for 2 weeks last year, but we don’t have a way of knowing who EA are going to choose.
Do you have a weekly investment schedule based on rewards, objectives, and TOTW/sbc releases?
In general, it is good to buy during SB rewards on Sundays and WL/Rivals rewards on Thursdays; there are generally a lot of good opportunities to get good deals via snipe or bid during those times.
Thanks! Also, do we get any kind of indication about the MM before they drop? Or do you just look at the schedule and pick out the biggest games? And do you think there is any way this isn’t a MM bc Liverpool already had one a few weeks ago?
I use this website to get an indication of which MM are likely to be chosen.
You the man!
What is your opinion on if The Hernandez? Surely he should rise out of packs
He will likely rise, yes, but I think it will be gradual and the ROI will be low given his high price.
What to do with IFs Kolarov and Oyarzabal?
With the upcoming halloween scream event this friday id say you should take the hold. If required for scream sbc’s they will rise. Eventually you can list them above their min buy now for lazy buyers
List for lazy buyers for a couple thousand coins more than they are currently going for.
I have 50 pcs of icardi bought on 7.7-9.5 like what u said..
what i need to do now ? take the hit again and invest on something else or keep holding?
I would sell and move on. It sucks, but at this point you are sacrificing opportunity cost by not investing in other places. I’ll be updating my Top Buys as new looks come along that I like.
I’m loathe to do this, I pulled the trigger and “cut my losses” on 40 James Milner cards after he didn’t make team of the week, and missed out on around 400,000 coins when he went to 10k hours later – I might hang onto Icardi
Yes, that Milner situation was unfortunate for those who sold. But that was definitely an exception rather than a rule.
Looks like I was sort of right 😂 with the Bastian sbc he has risen again about 1k-1.5k, so I’m getting rid now and recouping some of that loss per card
Hi Chief, with the upcoming halloween scream event is it smart to sell my team? I expect many players to sell their players to open packs and in that case some players might crash right?
In the past there has been a decent dip for Halloween Scream. I’d say selling on Thursday after WL/DR rewards would be a decent course of action.
Hi, just packed Mbappe – should I sell him right now or wait? In the upcoming weeks his price will surely drop, right?
Yes, many meta players like Mbappe will dip over the next few weeks. It could happen as soon as this weekend with the Halloween Scream promotion.
Favorite discard IF right now? Eyeing Grillitsch and Rodriguez.
I like Rodriguez more because of his position.
Hey Chief, I often see people making money from investing in informs soon after they are in packs because people sell them really cheap. Can you explain how to see if a new inform is too cheap and when he is not?
I’d say this is more of people sniping them under value than anything else.
What do you reckon to St Pats and Bohemian players for Marquee?
Not that interested.
Squad fitness likely to go anywhere with them patching the glitch?
Maybe a bit, but I’d expect the rise to be gradual.
Should i buy wijnaldum before his TOTW comes out?
Wjinaldum is too high at price as he is part of the meta, his ROI won’t be much since he’s already expensive. Tha’s what I think.
I agree with gingerale.
Is it worth selling teams now to buy back on friday night when prices drop
If you were to sell, I would do so on Thursday after WL/DR rewards.
Howwhat is the best way to make money for someone who started playing now and only has 2000 coins?
Grinding sniping and bidding filters to get some initial coins. Apologies, but I reserve trading information for my subscribers.
If I apply some training attributes to dunk IF your reckon I can sell them for 12k – 13k?
Perhaps. I’d say listing consistently will be the thing that gets them sold as opposed to any attribute cards.
Hey chief, what does your best XI look like?
This was my squad from last year.
Best time to buy a squad?
Literally? August. In general, the longer you wait, the better.
first of all great job you are doing here! Thanks!
Do you have any predictions for upcoming UEFA CL MM next week?
I do. I’ll be posting later this week.
Should I sell my squad before the Halloween Promotion？
I think that is probably a smart move given what has happened in years past with the promo, yes.
When do u think i should sell my OTW de jong?
