The FIFA 17 Team of the Season (TOTS) arrives this week – which can only mean one thing. Another market crash.
TOTS kicks off on May 12th and will see Squad Building Challenges released every week, TOTS Upgrade SBCs with a chance at a guaranteed 84+ TOTW player, Lightning Rounds and a lot more.
As a result, gamers will be flooding to the market and opening as many packs as possible – which will result in a significant player price downturn.
Here’s everything you need to know to stay ahead.
What is a market crash?
A crash is the sudden drop in player prices in the FUT Transfer Market.
Player prices have been known to drop by 50 per cent of their value during some periods, although this is less frequent now.
A 20-30 per cent drop in value is more likely.
Why does a FIFA 17 Market Crash Occur?
Simply put, it’s when demand outweighs supply.
So, demand stays the same but suddenly there are influx of new players in market.
New inform releases and promotions encourage gamers to buy more packs, flooding the market with players – causing the price to drop across the board.
EA does its best to keep the market stable by managing the release of the new informs and offers.
So, how can I make the most of the crash?
Buy low during the weekend of the community TOTS (which kicks off this Friday, see below) as this is when hype is the greatest- then hold on to the items for a few weeks before selling again when prices have recovered.
Remember, if you haven’t started selling your players then it may be best to hold off for now, as many will panic and sell last minute – causing a mini crash.
What’s the best way to prepare?
If you’re reading this and it’s the first you’ve heard about this crash, don’t worry – there’s still time.
Build up coins by playing progressive tournaments, taking part in SBCs and playing in the FUT Champions Weekend League for win rewards.
Don not buy any packs before FUT 17 Team of the Season launches; Save your FUT packs for the day of the most consistent TOTS release and flog any packed in-forms instantly.
Remember, the TOTS keeps going for several weeks and provides a huge window of opportunity.
Take your time and use Futbin to monitor the market and find the perfect time to sell.
FIFA 17 TOTS will begin with the release of the Community Teams made up of bronze, silver and gold teams selected by the FIFA community.
