    Is this price rise because of the Hernandez SBC? Imagine if a good card comes out requiring 87/88 rated cards.

    Come on EA!!!!!

    no, not related..

    it's the panic buy/sell that happens prior to BF

    I stocked up on another 3 Kronos for just over 35k on bids. Maybe pushing it a bit but should break even at very least...

    That's the thing lol...even with some big sbcs the market will be so damn flooded with these cards. I think EA will screw us all and just not release an SBC

    Sold all mine last night. People were paying silly money for the 84’s and 85’s.

    I never understand why people make these kind of threads. If you have a good trading method the last think you want to do is let the 1000s of lurkers know about it. Or even worse, alert EA to it.

    imo, if no undercutting happens or ppl aiming for 1-3k profit, we should all be making coins..

    Its really hard to lose with these prices....but the part I hate the most is when you have to hold for too long.
    Opportunity cost is high....

    Make sure you sell at a decent enough price but not too high you miss out on Black Friday deals / rebound

    I’ve sold all my 84’s this morning and it’s covered 2x Kroos anyway

    All I did was the same as last year, buy one of each card and one dupe at a price I was happy with. No intention of selling at all but it’s covered me for 2 X icon SBC’s In the future. The rest of the coins have stayed in the club

    Cheers... Thats my aim. Trying to hit the sweet spot is difficult without undercutting people here. I know ultimately each to their own, but its a decent community with a few good people around. Hope we all get a decent return on our investment!

    Definitely right about opportunity cost. Although I was getting tetchy flipping icons close to bf and it's nice just needing to refresh the tp every hour and not search for deals.

    Yeah opportunity cost was bothering me too, so I told my self id only stock up if I could win them on bids and have them in my transfer targets

    Prices for Godin and Kroos are slightly on the up 👍

    e.a obsession in trying to stop coin bashings means it is very hard to figure what they will do next in their battle to stop profit

    I don’t expect them to lose their own revenue to stop traders..

    Who in their right mind will open pack on BF?? There are very few golds worth over 100k. EA needs to do something about that soon. Maybe a big Icon SBC right before BF?

    Yeah, the right revenue move for EA is something to boost the value of packs (83-90 rated NIFs) while bringing down the value of Icons to make them more affordable, with the added EA benefit of hurting hoarders who have bought Icons at inflated prices.

    something to stimulate the market yeah before Friday or do they actually think the pack sales will go through the roof anyway with the masses
    perhaps they don't care whether kroos is 30k or 300k :D

    Naeh mate... any of the 81's should nicely 😂

    How about an Icon SBC with a 86 rated squad, 1 IF (would need to be and 84 upwards anyway to get to 86) and 75 Chemos, paired with an 82 rated squad and 2 IF with 70 Chem 😃

    Problem solved....

    Where can I apply for the open SBC position? 😂

    Thats what worries me... You would think they would like to take coins and cards out of circulation, so pack weight increases.
    As many said already... I dont even get exited anymore seeing boards with a country flag, when I open packs from an SBC or so. Whats the point.

    I most certainly wont spend my coins in packs, neither will I spend Fifa points at this point! It doesn't make sense.

    They have to make high rating cards worth something more, otherwise buying FIFA points makes no sense at all.

    I know this is a thread for high rated investments but did anyone invest in 83s and 84s?

    I wish I would have before the jump.

    Is it still worth it if they release a TOTW SBC like last year?
