59th Minute Never Works

Is anyone else having this problem / know a fix.

I've never been able to use the compare price or flip pages in order to get the new cards to pop up.

I've tried on the web app, companion app and console every day for the last week.

I've been trying to do it to get deals on ICONs but have found I have to restart my search and change a parameter i.e. backout and up Max price by 1,000 coins in order to get the 59th minute to refresh.

On the forums though I frequently read of people who are able to click compare price and then back out of compare price to see the newly listed cards.

    What's massively annoying is cards shown as still available when they've already been sold.

    Sometimes they are already sold for 5-6 minutes too, lol.

    I know!

    I've actually bought a card before & it was still showing up on the search! TBH, that's happened quite a few times. Would drive me mad if I was actually a trader.

    It ruins trading. Because if you can do it you are able to make massive steals and enjoy looking at a variety of players. I've used the method in other Ultimate team modes for years without an issue. FUT though I get a refresh every 5 minutes or so. Its ridiculous that some people are able to do it while others aren't.

    I honestly think they did that on purpose, to dissuade people from constantly refreshing the market over and over which puts loads on their servers, like if a ton of people keep refreshing a webpage at the same time

    Not gunna lie, it made me stop doing it a few times

    But some people are still able to do it. So they get to enjoy massive rewards / profit while others can't. Either they have figured out a fix or EA is selectively choosing who / where is able to do it.

    Doug people press compare price on their Xbox One, Web App, Companion app then B or back whatever and the new cards will pop up at 59 minutes 59 seconds.

    If you can do that you get to see the huge blunders where people underlist things for 100's of thousands.

    Put a minimum price in and keep moving it. It'll clear the cards that have sold.

    Ah ok mate, I'll have to check if I can do it lol

    Thats not effective if you want to see more than one or a couple cards. People are able to 59th minute on all Icons for example. That is way way more profitable.

    Do the cards instantly refresh for you on the companion app? I.e. if you search icons. @Helloitsme2

    Set the buy now to what you are looking for then set the bid really high and search. next adjust bid by smallest amount and search again and so on. should refresh the listings everytime.

    If you leave all the search prices the same you will see items that have already sold.

    Keep in mind, sniping is very popular and difficult to have any success.

    This is what I don't understand is why for example it will work for some people and not others.

    Is there anything specifically you do? Does it work all the time. Did you redownload the app etc.
