FIFA 18 players believe a market crash is about to begin – citing a worrying drop in index value.
Yesterday Futbin data revealed the FIFA 18 market index dropped almost 10 points – the steepest decrease since the game launched.
Market crashes happened frequently on FIFA 17 – and led to some of the most expensive players dropping in price.
Although this is only a slight dip, a number of top players have already started losing value.
These include Luis Suarez (536,000) – down 5.50%, Marco Reus (138,000) – down 4.72% and Gonzalo Higuain (89,500) – down 7.37%.
The dip, which for now seems isolated to the PS4 market, has already got gamers taking on the FIFA reddit.
One wrote: “Seems like prices for some players are dropping huge today. Specifically Serie A (Calico).
“Anyone else noticing this and do you expect prices to go back up?”
Another wrote: “Seems to be across all markets and there has been a big drop in the last couple of days. Linked to the Champions League perhaps?”
So, why does a FIFA Market Crash Occur?
Simply put, it’s when supply outweighs demand.
So, demand remains constant but suddenly there is an 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.
