    I sold a few days ago. I bought Ramos, Alba, Herrera a few hours ago for dirt cheap. The rest of my squads are untradeable or cheap players.

    You didn't lose any value.

    The whole market crashed, not only the players you own.

    Not true mate.

    If you sell early you can buy back to same team once it's dropped for a lot less, then have the difference left over

    I kept the players I know I'll want to keep using, e.g. OTW Depay.

    I sold TOTGS Cavani because I'll want his TOTS soon, so I'm just using his SBC for now.

    You have to weigh up how much you'll save vs loss of enjoyment not using the cards you want for a period of time.

    I am keeping two squads of good players.

    I did take this opportunity to finally complete the big three La Liga SBC teams to add 94 Suarez to my club so I'm happy with the market crash.

    Sold all my legends and expensive players the day before and purchased Blue Fekir, Kasper, Varane and Pogba.

    Still have 400k to buy possibly another legend.

    Players are dirt cheap right now.

    Probably not much to be honest.

    I unloaded lots of my low value 82, 83 rated cards today though, as with the current SBCs they're going for inflated values.

    Yes it is true. He lost coins but the value of coins increased so therefore the value of his coins stayed the same and could afford the same players as he could of a week ago

    I waited too long and just sold now.

    Took 100k loss on 91 Cavani, 300k loss on 94 Lewandowski, and will probably lost about 100k on otw Higuian unless he does something magical tomorrow (I currently have him listed way above the lowest bin).

    Next year I'll sell earlier.

    I'm happy I finally did sell though, those players will only drop further as the WL wraps up.

    Del Piero is 300k less than I paid, and I've only played 5 games with him :D

    On the flip side, I sold striker Hazard for 899k a couple of weeks ago, and for that price I got him back plus Pogba and Ibra.

    Wow I'm in the same boat here thinking of selling my 89 Cavani for 100k loss my SIF Arnautvic for 60k loss or might just continue to play with them in hopes that they will bounce back in price

    You are completely right, the only thing you missed is being more wealthy if you sold your players a week ago, the value of your coins/players is almost the same as before compared to the market value.

    Both of you are right it depends on how you look at it. Look up the difference between Economic and Accounting profit

    So your saying hazard, mane, kante, lukaku, walker and de gea won't all be over 1m coins or close, right so let's say you have 3 million coins you can get 4 tots cards but still have **** all every else

    Hazard will. Maybe Lukaku at a push. The others won't be close to a million.

    Lol, I understand this and obviously agree, but it felt like he was missing the point. What the original poster means, and I mean, is that he has missed the opportunity to be better off by having the same players and cash in the bank, which now feels like a loss. Perhaps a loss of potential earnings, rather than a loss of value is a more accurate way of describing the situation.

    Obviously if all of his cash is tied up in players then everything is relative, but the key difference is that for those of us that liquefied our assets, we're now better off as the cash we obtained a couple of weeks ago is now worth more.

    I sold my two teams last weekend and had about 1.1 million. Couldn't be patient so I just ended up buying new teams and now my players have gone down by a ton. Messi alone has gone down about 100k

    Not sure about that mate. In the prem I think if Azpi is a CB he'll be expensive. Kante, Hazard and Lukaku will be though the roof and so will Walker. People like Alderweirald will also be expensive

    I think you forget how many tots cards there are and how many get packed. Walker won't be over 1 mil. Kante will be 750k max. Alderwerield will be like 150k, since he's "slow". He was 90k last year at one point..

    Azpi would only be like 400k as well. His if was around 200k, so not extremely popular since he's small
