Prices are too high to compete

I’m fully RTG. After giving the game a break for 2 weeks. I’m back and raring to go for this weeks weekend league. I had sold up with 1mil in the bank expecting prices to have flopped. Wow! I could even buy back the team I had at this point. Every player seems up 20% on when I last played. What happened to Black Friday? What happened to no one playing anymore so prices would drop with less demand?
I’m thinking of giving it a miss until Jan because I can’t compete without spending all day trading or all my spare cash on FP. Too many paying to play nevermind win.

    The market is at an alltime high ever since before price ranges. I see Prime R9 going to 10Million easy

    You messed up big time, sold when you should be buying and now you want to buy when you should be selling.

    Don't listen to Youtubers like matthdgamer who have no idea about the market.

    There’s supposed to be a crash mid December, but honestly.. I dont know if it’s actually happening this year. You should lookout on the market before we hit mid December, mate.

    All yo uguys commenting about bad times to buy and sell. Look a little closer. There was NO precrash for Black Friday, there was NO crash during Black Friday. The market is a complete mess this year...

    Prices will skyrocket. Top Tier icons will never be attainable unless you are a grade A trader or if you throw lots of cash towards EA.

    Don’t matter it’s easy to compete this year, my fitness 800k squad plays just as good as my main 9.5 million squad so don’t worry just play for fun and enjoy smashing high rated teams with mid/low teams

    Just because you missed the pre-crash doesn't mean there wasn't one @Numlocked_

    You used to have to be a good trader, get lucky in packs, or spend tons of cash on the game to get top players years ago but with the introduction of Rivals in addition to the already lucrative FUT Champs anybody who has time to play a bunch of games has plenty of coins and good teams so there's much more competition for the high end players as a result.

    Sure about that buddy? A week before Black Friday Bale went from 500k to 400k. Godin from 75k to 40. Aguero from 300k to 240k. Firmino from 75k to 40k.There definitely was a crash. The fact that you may have missed it it’s another thing..too late noe

    Read your sentence again. You've answered why. The B word before coins. It's happening worse than ever. My last message was deleted when I explained why prices are so high.

    I bought prime Ronaldinho on Xbox for 3.1 the Tuesday before Black Friday. He was 3.4-3.5 a few weeks before that and now he’s 3.9. So there was def a dip and a rise just as a lot of people expected. Also I wouldn’t call that a messed up market it’s a strong market. You buy players and their value doesn’t drop I have no problem with that

    Today I lost a game in WL against a 30K team....his best player was Alli and he destroyed me 4-2.
    So it's absolutely possible to compete with a cheapo team.
    That said, 1 mil. would buy you a really good team...

    Dude I sold up when I wasn’t going to be playing & I will buy when I’m ready to play again. I will not buy at these prices. Career mode or pro clubs is just as fun for me. I was just asking why they’re so inflated. As I RTG player on a Fifa forum would do. Go be arrogant elsewhere little child

    Not everybody treats UT like a stock market.
  • It not about team rate or player cost, its about you loving your team.
    Having they player you like and have fun (as the game allow)

    This right here. I play for fun. I stop at 14 wins on WL sometimes it takes 20 games sometimes 30 but I never stress because I don’t try hard. I just wanted to take that next step team wise. I mil gets me Neymar and Suarez I will be happy whenever I buy.

    I always go untradable becuz the market is so high. Packed some decent players like CR7, Courtois and Naingollan. Plus it let's me do sbcs a lot, which I love.

    Weekend league gives me enough coins and tradables to build full the gaps between my untradables

    There was a downwards spiral in prices but not a crash. Not like last Fifa's. Only cards that crashed were the top tier IF they put back into packs.
