For years and years we all suspect and probably accept that EA flood the market with cards from time to time. Flair FIFA just saw over 1,000 BVB Kagawa get listed for 1.1k at the same time.

Obviously very difficult to do for people not EA as, we can only re list (allowing for the listing to be at the same time 100 cards) and Kagawa isn’t even in packs.

    Weird thing about that vid is you'll notice the time doesn't countdown at all. Surely fake?

    He’s scrolling pretty fast that is how they go down when you scroll fast. The time does go down after it refreshed a bit.

    Maybe they just close/deleted an account that had them on it's unassigned pile ? Don't really see any possible reason to purposely dump a thousand Kagawa of all cards as a means to "manipulate the market". What exactly is that achieving ?

    EDIT: Or even simpler some poor soul gave up on his investments.

    Makes sure Dortmund is still completable if they drop something league related or that needs players for Dortmund

    Dortmund has a gazillion discard gold players to complete any sort of SBC.

    Well yes that was something in the video was said as a possible reason. As far as an investor selling not a chance. He was selling for more than 1.1k and an individual can’t list for the same time with 1k cards.

    Can’t possibly be EA, I wouldn’t imagine they would have that many left as they’ve probably given me a 1000 of Kagawa this year already.

    Me too. Every week at least twice.
    I even packed his IF untradeable in DR Rewards and then his Red in my WL Rewards.

    Reminds me of when Pele wasn't in packs years back and then they put up 3 at the same time after weeks of nothing!

    He's on a specific card for a few seconds and timne never changes, but it suddenly does when he's on page 34.

    Nothing new, they control the market, not us. In fifa 10 Gerrard was rare and quite expensive. Then one day they adjusted his pack weight and he flooded the market.
