Autobuyers taking over the market

After one week into the release of FIFA 16 in the US
it's fairly apparent that auto buyers have taken over
the market...again. What can we do as a community
to help EA rid the market of these cheaters? It's
causing me loads of frustration as I'm sure that
others are just as frustrated. You can't buy a player at a decent price because their values have been
ballooned to a point where they are no longer worth
the asking price, and buying low/selling high is
completely out of the question. Does EA allow theseauto-buyers to rule the market so they can sell more FIFA points? All I have to say is there needs to be
something done about it now!!!

    Tbf the amount of people that are constantly watching things like this is stupid. There's a reason there's so many threads of people complaining about bans because they've been banned for spamming for these "deals" for easy flips

    I've been buying and relisting squad fitness today and had a handfull of bins that were 50% of the current price. If I'm fast enough to beat autobuyers for those, then autobuyers have gotten really slow.

    Im convinced their back now but their not on every card yet

    Im sniping players like bony lallana etc fine for deals

    but as soon as i try to save 1-2k on azpilicueta i cant and they are always been relisted for the same prices - 8.7/8.8k

    I got bony for 700 quickly but azpilicueta is impossible to get a decent price on

    That's how it is with Modric, Benzema, and any decent La Liga player. It seems to me that if auto-buyers were not welcome they would be no more.

    Passive coin accumulation 101. Use a bot to bid on consumables at auction and list for a small profit. Rinse and repeat thousands of times and you have made the easiest millions of coins. Are EA turning a blind eye? :neutral:

    They are not nearly as effective as past year but its time for another banwave. Since you can only create 10 accounts per consoles that should put lots of ppl out of business.

    I notice that less expensive players are going much quicker than big players, managed to get a Robben for 350k, 38k cheaper then his next cheapest BIN, but seen 4-5 Lars Bender go within 2 seconds for 900c

    More people have 900 coins then 350k. But AB are definitely back up and running again.

    EA have not officialy said it but you get an error when trying to enter FUT with your 11th account. It's time for EA to step up and ban those first 10 accounts so they are forced to go buy a new console.

    Its weird that they are being selective

    normally they would just snipe anything worth a few k

    A buyer of a second hand console couldn't play the game if his was the 11th account but first for him?

    Has anyone seen on a site that there are def autobuyer bots out there? On the vast majority of my two teams I bought during the day today I managed to find players at least 1k below the 2nd cheapest player listed, and these are good players (not top of the market players). IMO everyone is trying to trade with the likes of azpi/modric/iniesta etc., be more inventive with your trading techniques rather than going for the most desirable players that everyone wants for their team or are trying to trade with. I have def found much better deals during quiet times, I suspect autobuy bots don't need the sleep.

    With 1k cheaper - what are the prices of the players you are winning?
