too early now to sell up for TOTS?

below is my team and i'm only concerned about the 3 TOTY cards coz they're all worth 1M+ each and are bound to drop (especially if they make it to TOTS) so my questions are:

1. Will it be too much of a downgrade to replace either Kane or KDB with FB Rooney? If not, then it's worth freeing up 1-1.5M coins by selling one of them

2. Some YouTubers started videos about selling up this week but, since TOTS won't start for another month plus a crash just happened last week, am i better off holding for another 2 weeks or so and hope the TOTY prices would recover a bit?

3. Of the 3 TOTY cards i have, which is/are locked for TOTS? I would want to sell the one(s) that is/are lock(s) in advance as their prices will definitely drop . On the other hand, I might keep the one(s) that will probably not make it to TOTS as i bought all 3 of them when fresh


Thanks

    Honestly, just enjoy the game, ride out the coin losses.

    Even when TOTS is out you then have the do i buy on release or wait for the re-release...

    true but if the TOTS is -1 rated and half the price then i wouldn't mind downgrading to buy a few more TOTS/Icons with the same coins

    true, i never get it right... last year PL TOTS were lowest on the 1st weekend so i missed the boat and had to wait out for the re-release which is like another month

    this year i thought that would be the same for TOTY and bought during 1st weekend which turned out to be way too early...

    honestly dunno whens' the best time to buy during this upcoming TOTS

    Kane will get a tots and it will be cheap like last year.
    KDB tots will still be expensive.
    Kantè won't get a tots card.

    I'd sell Kane.

    what makes you think Kane will be cheap and KDB will be expensive? more ST options than CAMs for TOTS?

    would FB Rooney be fine to replace Kane then? (at least until TOTS)

    Why sell the TOTY cards? the TOTS versions if they get them won't better the TOTY versions.

    I'd look to keep that team enjoy it and trade with any spare coins, look to make around 10K a day and you'll have quite a bit come TOTS.

    fifa17 tots Kane max price was 400k. He was 180k by the end of june.
    KDB tots stayed at 700-800k pretty much til the end of the game.

    good point... however aa -1 rated card probably won't make a big difference but definitely better value for $?

    i've around 1.5M coins atm and loads of IFs/NIFs i previously packed which i sell whenever they are required by SBCs but still if i want to build a full blue/icons team by TOTS i'm not sure if i'd have enough coins

    true... TOTS Kane seemed a bargain last year but heard TOTY Kane this year is a different level right? So not sure if the upcoming TOTS Kane would be more like last year's TOTS or this year's TOTY. If it's like the TOTY would it still be one of the best STs which keep his price high compared to last year?

    I'm not sure as i haven't tried TOTS Kane last year so can't really tell the difference

    Very weak argument considering you could have bought Vieira, Desailly and friends ages ago.

    You got a boring PL team for months now and in the mean time those TOTYs dropped a considerable amount as well.

    I see your point. But to me PL teams aren’t boring cuz I’ve never had one in 16 and 17. Yes I’m bored of PL teams beating my full TOTS team last year but not bored of owning one lol.

    Re Vieira yes he’s probably the best cdm but I got bored of owning him 2 years in a row so I don’t see myself splashing over 1M to own him.

    Desailly, I just don’t see spending that much on a CB

    Also I bought icons early last year and lost tons on them

    Whereas TOTY cards. They aren’t in packs anymore so price should hold better than Icons. TOTY Kane and KDB aren’t boring to me cuz I’ve never owned their tots last year. I bought and sold tots Kante last year within a week so aren’t bored of him anyways.

    The point I’m trying to make is, boring or not, it’s all relative

    I know I always say this on your threads but you spend far too much time worrying about coins.

    I’ve lost about 3.5/4m since Jan. I do not care. I’ve tried different players, various icons and I play the game. Players come down. The million I lost on Ronaldinho was worth it for how good he was. Same for R90. Lost hundreds of thousands on Maradonna and ST Ronaldo etc.

    So what? I’ve still got enough to make an awesome team with players I like. More coins would obviously be better. If I hadn’t bought those players and used a cheap team/untradeables I could have got R9 and Gullit tonight. And an awesome team around them. But I want to actually play and not just trade or play with rubbish cheap players like everyone does with Bakayoko etc.

    This week is the first time ever that I’ve sold everything and sat on coins. I only did it on Sunday and I’m BORED! It’s all getting spent tonight! Lol

    Who cares you have the most boring generic Prem team and you will have the same at TOTS just keep your cards

    Here we go, the usual people moaning about generic teams. What's the consensus on non generic around here, some 75 rated players they probably havent heard of boosted up to 84 because of some IF's or random 3rd bank holiday half moon special edition bronze?

    Game will be dead a couple of weeks after TOTS.

    The world cup mode will role out and it’ll be all about that. Worth selling players now for around two weeks worth of interest?

    Probably not I’d say.

    Lol again thanks for reminding me in all my threads. But you do trade and profit a lot to make up for all those losses right? The thing is I’m in Asia time zone so whether it be sniping a bargain during lightning rounds or maximising my profit in trading by selling in hype or by selling right after a new sbc is released means that I’ve to stay up to at least 2-4am. I’m a married man with a full time job so that’s not easy. Also I’m not like I used to be 10-20 years ago so even to stay up late during weekends to do this makes me feel sick and tired the following day.

    So, in short, trading in Fifa is very unhealthy for me thus I’m so careful with my coins as I don’t wanna stay up for so many nights just to get the cards I want.

    Maybe I’m just too old for Fifa after all and should quit lol
