    Don't know why ea don't just scrap the market and go pack only because that's what they want.
    Me personally, I would stop playing the game if I can't trade, the game is just not good enough to hold my interest on its own

    People are loading up for SBC’s and Marquee matchups & it’s almost like EA know what they’re doing and deliberately screwing them over
    In the old days like 14 & 15 you could read the market a bit to profit now it’s practically impossible

    EA would rather people spend coins and money on packs rather than trade, and the people who are happy trading is dying are the ones who are usually too dumb to trade.

    EA are deliberately screwing over investors by crashing the market down perpetually. Nothing has risen in the last 2 weeks and just when there was a hint of recovery they released the promo packs which crashed it down even further.

    The only thing that would recover the market would be if they released some prime icon SBC but they didn't do that because they want to screw over traders even more .

    The content added is killing the market, everyone now knows to hoard players for supply and demand.
    I’d prefer they just had a marketplace they ran where you buy players for coins earned and sold players for a set price. (If it keeps going as it is).
    I wanted pepe in my Turkish team and he was literally extinct so long I scrapped it.

    Couldn’t agree more. I can’t believe what it’s become. I was listening to an ign podcast today and they just ripped into ea. Madden, fifa, etc. They’ve been voted worst company in America I believe twice. They are sadly the lucky company who have this game, when others would produce it so much better.

    Trading is getting downwards for me last week. Silver players prices dropped en other techniques didn't work well this week.

    Trading one of the only exciting things left, but now its slowly dying.

    Fifa doesnt represent football in any way and is an absolute **** show of bugs, glitches and "meta" things such as driven shots. (Hate the term meta btw).

    We need another football game to show this mob what can be done

    100% EA will place a CB in KV Kortrijk when Pro League SBC hits, they only got 2 CBs. Just so all that have invested ( me included ) gets f over.

    Agree with most points made in this thread, but I don't agree that trading is dying off..

    Still a lot off coins to be made, but EA is definitely making it harder.
    If I have enough coins to trade with I can still make 150K on a evening with flipping cards.
    Also, I only invest in IF's! (unless they are discard or when it's short-term) IF's don't really drop unless it is a big crash or when they get a higher IF.
    When you invest in NIF's you're f***** as soon as they release promo packs.

    No it doesn’t, the customer experience is going down each fifa, because they are too focusted on short-term profit (like most american companies) but this means in the long term losses could be huge if pes manage to create a better copy of fut

    Do you just do IF trading when you have spare coins ? As in, quick flips same night you bought ?

    SBC'S have only been around for 2 years and have made trading 100 times easier, if anyting EA stimulated trading by adding it. What's dying off is people trying to predict sbc's and hoarding up bronze and silver players to sell them for 10 K

    Uhh, I've made 3.5 million in four weeks just trading. It seems easier than ever.

    Really though what can ea do? People who invest in sbcs want the price to be unreasonable high for max profit while people who want to do the sbc want it reasonable and not pay 100k for a 10k pack.
