    So what do you guys is the better investment
    A) buying low tots after cm sbc is done
    B) buying 83/84 on Friday lightning round

    Or combine those 2?

    I think second option , i bought about 300 ucl cards for the premium cl sbc to drop , and to many peoples invested in them , you had to be quick to sell everything in one hour , then they dropped like a stone again

    What do you think will happen for Mbappe as he will likely win POTY and YPOTY ?

    Not convinced on these TOTS investments. If this week is anything to go by EA are giving 2/3 out per week in objectives, another 2 out in weekly SBCs, WL rewards will release lots more into the market and the pack rate is higher than normal. I’m already sitting on 6 untradeable TOTS cards by doing very little.

    Can see a big return though if the big leagues require 2 TOTS players per SBC and they release the SBC twice per week like last year.

    I think there are coins be to had but you are going to have to sell at just the right time and quickly i think.

    This year on all the obvious investments you've had a really short window to sell

    I see it like this: There will always be people that need to buy them from the market so worst come to worst you'll get your coins back with how low prices are right now. As long as you don't have to discard them for 10k all is well.

    I think the best thing to do is split your investments:

    1) 83/84s have significantly gone up since the MC TOTS SBC. They'll definitely be needed throughout this promo so, it'd be a good idea to stock up during Thursday rewards, sell when the SBCs land, and repeat weekly. This will 100% work.

    2) Buy TOTS for as low as you can today or tomorrow (but personally I wouldn't sink all your coins into them).

    3) In a worst case scenario, you have to sell your TOTS for what you got them for (maybe a little less if you're impatient or miss the boat). But, you can recover any losses from your 83/84s. Best case scenario is that you profit from both investments.

    Smart advice, I would recommend this too. I'm not going to do it myself because I want to open packs etc. but anyone who doesn;t should do this.

    Yeah you’re probably right.

    ...I think I’m going to sack off buying for investments and literally pick up enough for my own SBC completion plus enough 83-85s to complete the requirements.

    Assume there’s 10 more guarenteed TOTS SBCs each requiring 2 TOTS players:

    I’ll go in on 20 TOTS players
    50 83s
    30 84s
    10 85s

    Had a punt and bought a few rttf 86 Mathieu and ucl fekirs for 18-20k in the hope of a rise for mbappe poty. If it fails, oh well!

    Mathieu is a great shout.

    Think I'll do the same. I think I am done with "trading" on Fifa 19. On Friday I hope to, during the madness, complete 4 icon SBCs and then its just a waiting game for the other TOTS cards that I might add into either squad.

    Remember though, last year, they did a tradable TOTS SBC after all leagues had been realised. This would be a time to gamble on cheap TOTS cards.

    if MC TOTS Sbc was 84 rated then PL will be 85 or higher

    I'd buy 85's instead of 84's on friday

    They can also ask for 2 TOTS players, but probably an 85 rated team yeah

    I did wonder whether theyd put an IF requirement into them too? If they do I hope they lower the chem requirements.

    Maybe it'll be a 84 squad with 1 tots but all 11 players from PL for example

    That would be awful. I'm leaning towards 84 + TOTS + TOTW for EPL.

    Yeah the 80 chem has got to go, makes it so much harder and more expensive

    no I'd wait until atleast Sunday becuase that is when I reckon the BPL tots SBC will be, and last year loads of Tots cards were needed for Ligue 1 POTY and that is on Sunday as well.

    I've just gone about 200-250k deep on Anthony Lopes of Lyon who is in TOTW. A high rated (84) French player who will fit a ton of SBCs over the weekend with Ligue 1 POTY due to be released 👍🏻

    Should hopefully go extinct since supply is already low thanks to the MC SBC.
