    Prime Socrates was 1m yesterday, he's 1.3m now :'(

    Was looking at Prime Del Piero too, he went from 850k to 1.1m this morning, then back down to 800k

    Wouldn't surprise me. They'd be better off just slightly upping the pack weight of them instead.

    They use this as a way of getting coins out the game. Scam

    They have done this for years, they used to bulk list them in the middle of the morning UK time when legends were on the market.

    We all know it happens, but never seen proof like this

    Is this necessarily bad? Helps combat inflation

    What proof? Those fresh prime Peles at at 1:30 or him saying, 'You gotta believe me man!'?

    I believe it happens for sure but it's pretty naïve for him to call that proof.

    Here's actual proof, and EA did say they put them on the market @Swanz05



    Funny enough the year after this happened they removed the club name from the market so you cannot see who's putting what players up and who they belong to.

    Of course EA add players onto the market. They did before, there's no reason they don't still do it

    Cheers man I know they do it. Just laughable for Nick to act so outraged, call that evidence & pretend it's breaking news.

    Lol, who is that guy? He talks as if it's a confirmed fact. If thats the case, why not buy a couple of them and show that there is another one coming on the market exactly after? Joker

    Just puts them in packs and let people pack them.

    I would guess it is easier for them to generate a few cards and place them on the market than to "insert" them into specific player's packs that are otherwise generated randomly.

    Plus, while both methods would increase supply, putting generated cards straight on the market will remove coins from the game, thus curbing inflation in two ways.

    1) Would be wasting a ton on tax, particularly when
    2) It's not necessarily any better proof if they do show up ~10 minutes later than the argument he was making.

    I do agree with him that it is highly suspicious for 90% of Prime Peles, one of the most sought-after cards, to not have a single game played by the person who packed it. Fresh cards don't go for that much of a premium, particularly when there are 8 other fresh cards on the market.

    Everyone acts shocked and some act disgusted but, as usual, everyone keeps playing and spending money.

    They were doing this all the way back in FIFA 13.

    People complained that TOTY Ronaldo wasn’t on the market, and then magically loads got listed soon after from mostly the same seller.
