So I've been keeping an eye on Draxler today.

And found 10 of his cards on auction for 700 start with about 2 minutes left... I bid 750 then straight away it goes to 800 it did this on all of them and i then bid 850. Then they went to 900 so I left it and let the timer run out.

Out of the 10 cards two went for 3k and the rest stayed on 900. It's hard to explain but it seemed odd.

    Yeah I've noticed it too. It's getting really bad. It's impossible to trade profitably anymore as a regular player. You have opt for the less desirable cards to make a few coins.

    It's like who can pick up a Draxler card for 950 on auction with less than 2 minutes when his price trend is currently up 36%...

    Guys don't get sucked into a bidding war with these decepticons!

    You are right. I think they make their money firstly by driving players to bid higher and higher and then selling at an even higher price. Inflating prices and making them more coins.

    Yeah just need to play the long game with those cards and not get drawn into selling for the sake of it.

    I was looking at some lower cost 83-84's this morning on the market and seems a lot of people are trying to pinch their pennies even if it's only by 300 coins from buy now price. lol

    I list them for the prices I aim to sell and you still sell some lol. I swear there are some weird consumers playing FIFA. I put some players I didn't want to sell at very high prices on the market for safe keeping while I did some SBC with the duplicates. Guess what? They sold! I was shocked but was very happy.

    Think the weekend is harder to grab a deal as prices are generally higher.
