    Game is dead until big boy icons come out. Then again 2 weeks after.

    Big icons will not save the market. They are only accessible to a very small proportion of the player base.

    Cards like FB Ibra, FB Luiz, Cech and even Hamsik are ESSENTIAL to reviving the market as they’re accessible to majority of the player base, relatively cheap and are generally good value for coins.

    I feel like a sbc would only cause an uptick in the market for a small period of time. Once people complete those SBC's the coins are now completely wiped off the market, and are stuck in that SBC card, or am I missing something?

    The big icons will cause every thing to go up for a short period. A lot of people are invested and counting on them.

    this is weird i thought promos led to price spikes... when good sbcs drop

    why is the opposite happening? because of lightning round?

    I haven't turned the game on in 2 weeks. The fact that this promo had 0 effect on anything shows how little people care anymore.

    I'd be interested to hear what KPI's they look at to judge the engagement of a promo. Number of unique players on at a time, time it takes for promos to sell, total # of items listed at a given time, total # of SBC's completed.

    They have a ton of data I’m sure, like you said, but how they filter and sort is the question.

    The Problem is that These sbcs Are pretty expensive. You need 2 or 3 totw Players. That is why 84+ Players wont rise. Ea knows that lots of traders have invested

    It’s pretty self explanatory

    Lack of sbc’s that use 83/84 players + multiple promos with double packs that crushed the market, followed directly by another promo hasn’t given the market chance to stabilise or rise. Futbirthday will continue the trend then we’re at tots

    The market will not rise again

    84s maybe crushed but PIMs are a gold mine if you have the coins obviously. Made near enough 4m just flipping PIM Gullit twice :*

    There will be a TOTW SBC which will absolutely send 83-85 up again. Especially if (like last year) it's a "every TOTW ever" SBC.

    TOTW is pretty dead this year though with all the special cards theyve released so the market wouldnt change

    People won't care, the average FIFA player is not exactly a 'hmm, let's way the cost-benefit here' type of person.
