    If people are buying those silvers, can it be considered price fixing?

    If you packed one of those players would you sell around the same price, because that’s evidently the price people are willing to pay, and if so, are you not price fixing too? Or perhaps you would sell for cheaper even though someone would have willingly paid more for it.

    These cards are being packed, and yet the price remains high, why? Perhaps because thousands of people are wanting to buy these cards, and the moment one is listed below the current BIN it gets bought immediately, suggesting that the current price is in fact the “true” price.

    Basically can someone explain how the popularisation of this method and the subsequent rise in demand (thousands more people) coupled with the low supply, is not the cause of the increased price, and the actual cause is that some guys are price fixing these players. Everyone knows high demand/low supply = high prices. Why is this not the case here then?

    The first reason for these high prices is the "method" and the thousands of Nepsheep realising only now you can grind leagues, no one denied that, other reasons now are the low supply because of EA which is not regulating the market with silver players packs (intentionnal imo), and pricefixing adds to that, everything is related and has consequences on the market.

    I still do think that pricefixing shouldn't be allowed though, btw PFing is not selling ONE card at the market price of the moment, which is normal and fair, but a lot of the same cards by owning most of them and thus changing its price artificially, see the difference?

    I haven’t played a game of Fifa for 2weeks before I packed Del P because I had no team. I logged on every day to do sbc’s though :)

    Yeah I get that, but I feel too much emphasis is put on the notion of price fixing, rather than simply increased demand + low supply.

    From what I can see, individual silver prices have risen by a maximum of around 5k. Given the fact this method was platformed by YouTubers to audiences of tens of thousands of people, plus the fact these rare silvers are, well, rare, I would argue the increased prices are almost entirely down to increased demand, the affect of price fixers would be negligible.

    The market is dynamic, with these rare silver cards being added to it daily (albeit slowly), and market forces will almost always create an equilibrium and set the “true” price. Yes price fixers may have raised the price slightly, but the majority of the blame should be directed to the people who shared this method to the masses. Admittedly most of the discontent on this thread is directed towards those people but I’m seeing way too many people blame these increased prices entirely on price fixing

    I was thinking this the other day but football games I've been to.

    121 games in the past three years at an average of £50 a game, all in.

    That's probably what Bateson goes through FP in one day :joy:
    Do Walsall really charge £50 for a game?

    Don't get me wrong, I agree totally and despise those "Cuntent creators" for all the bad things they bring to the community, which would be a healthier place without their input.
    Pricefixing is just a consequence of the "lIvINg mARkEt".

    OTW Cancelo - 126 games, 2 goals, 27 assists.
    HL Lala - 182 games, 11 goals (takes pens), 37 assists.

    Bday Salah - 108 games, 6 goals , 5 assists.
    FS Mendy - 316 games, 11 goals , 33 assists.

    My LB is set to stay back and my RB is not and it shows. I'd think you're using them differently in some way.

    I have them both on stay back and Marcelo has about 60 assists in 200 games while my RB is in the 10s, hes just too good to be fair.

    You weren't kidding. Picked up TOTY Marcelo on Sunday and it's a small sample size, but:

    Bday Salah - 135 games, 7 goals, 10 assists.
    FS Mendy - 329 games, 11 goals, 34 assists.
    TOTY Marcelo - 7 games, 0 goals, 6 assists.

    Just opened 1.6kfp worth of 2.5k silver packs to see how much I'd make.

    Once stuff sells, just under 200k.

    Madness.

    Think we might see silver player packs in the store soon now? They're in high demand now so it's in Ea's best interest to release the packs and sell a bunch of them?

    The non rares are the money maker when opening silver packs. Ever since Jan if I ever spent money on FP it would be through silver packs.

    It is quite literally 800k-1m per 12kfp atm!
