FIFA 18 players have been hit with a market crash – earlier than expected.
Although the crash is not mean to hit until Black Friday (November 25), it seems as though a mini-slump is already taking place.
Douglas Costa has lost 20 per cent of his value, Samuel Umititi has lost 17 per cent and Kevin Gameiro has seen 16 per cent of his value slashed.
Sergio Ramos and Julian Draxler are other high-profile players that have lost significant value.
The dip is happening on the both the Xbox and PS4 markets and is causing quite a stir on the FIFA reddit.
The slump has even prompted FIFA YouTuber MattHDGamer to release a video about how to capitalise on the fluctuating prices..
Prices will continue to fall until Black Friday – where they will reach their lowest point.
A ‘crash after the crash’, lasting approximately three days, will follow shortly afterwards before prices begin to stabilise.
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 prices to drop across the board.
EA does its best to keep the market stable by managing the release of the new informs and offers.
