FIFA 17 Trading Tips for FUT
Starting FIFA 17 Ultimate Team can be a very confusing process, especially with so much information on what to do. Now we will give you some trading tips to make coins and win more matches.
1. When investing during Webstart / EA Access, focus on popular players.
What constitutes a popular player? In our opinion you need to mainly focus on the player’s league, individual attributes for their position (especially pace), skill moves and weak foot. Before the official release, popular players will rise in price by the biggest margin as other players will want them for their teams. When demand increases at a greater rate than supply, prices go up.
2. List players at 1 hour and relist
When you are selling a player you will want to give the auction as much exposure as possible. The best way to do this is to list at 1 hour and continuously relist. Most players don’t scroll past an hour, unless they happen to be BIN sniping or looking for the cheapest buy now.
3. Invest in player performances
Although price ranges have limited the upside of investing in player performance, it will remain as one of the best FIFA 17 trading tips for quick profits! It has always been very lucrative for us. It requires that you watch real-world football and quickly invest in players that are playing well (assuming they are not already inflated). A hype bubble usually occurs during the game, where the player peaks inside 90 minutes. Although the player will often remain inflated after the game, the greatest profits can be made inside 90 minutes. Monitor the market and sell at a time you feel optimal, 1 goal sometimes doesn’t drastically increase his price, but hype definitely will. Watch your Twitter feed!
4. Focus on quick profits
Unless you are sure prices are rising, such as investing in popular players during Webstart / EA Access up until the official worldwide release (assuming you get them at a decent price), it’s always worth focusing on quick profits. We’re big fans of mass bidding, BIN sniping, 59th minute (while there’s little competition), and finding rare silvers. All of these methods focus on turning over quick profits. Most importantly, there is zero risk attached.
Mass bidding – Finding a profitable price and sticking a max bid on as many of that player as possible up until 1 hour. You will lose many, but you should win several.
59th minute – Scroll to the 59th minute of listings after using the filters and look to find bargain buy now listings. 1 hour is the most popular listing cycle and hence where most bargains will appear.
BIN sniping – Rapidly adjust the price filters at a profitable buy now until an item is listed. Buy it instantly or someone else will.
5. Experiment with the market filters
Experimenting with transfer market filters is one of the best FIFA 17 trading tips out there as it can open up a lot of new methods. We’ve had a lot of success here, especially tweaking the prices, quality and league. Doing so can help return quality players than are selling cheap on a buy now or bid and go completely under the radar (more so during unpopular trading times). We’ve previously filtered our buy now max price to 300 coins, quality to silver and league to Barclays PL, helping us find many popular silver players with favourable stats. Lots will make you the easiest 100-150 coins you’ve made all day. We also had success bidding. All we did was remove the max buy now filter and replace it with a max bid price of 300 coins.
Other filters include quality to silver and max bid price to 400 coins / min buy now at 750. This generally returns better silvers, listed cheaply with often great stats. Again, look out for pace, skill moves, weak foot etc. Lastly we’ve also had success when setting our min bid price to 4,000, max buy now to 5,000 and quality to Silver. This will display plenty of overpriced players, but also many rare silvers which sell for in excess of 5k.
6. Bronze Barclays PL players will sell!
For the first few months, bronze teams will be built in abundance and especially Barclays PL Squad Builders. Bronze FIFA 17 BPL players should sell well, which means that setting your max bid price at 150, quality to Barclays PL, and mass bidding on players with favourable stats will make you easy FUT 17 coins. You can scope up a bit from 150 coins, if you want to make greater margins.
7. Spot players at 100% of their PRP
PRP means Price Range Percentage. If a players price ranges is 0-10k in FIFA 17 and he sells for 7.5k he’s at 75% of his PRP. Although EA will adjust price ranges fairly quickly, if you see a player at 100%, scan the market and see if you can purchase one. When price ranges are adjusted he will be selling for significantly more.
8. Position change or chemistry style players
This FIFA 17 coin making method will work well when the game has been released as more users will be changing a player’s position and chemistry style. The logic is to find a player in a popular position or chemistry style which sells for his basic price. Lots of players forget to account for the additional cost of the player’s position or chemistry style. BIN sniping or checking through auctions on bid will be your best method of obtaining players here.
9. Investing in featured tournament requirements
Tournaments towards the start of FIFA 17 Ultimate Team are going to be extremely popular. Everyone will be looking for a chance at boosting their coin totals and building a new squad. Featured tournaments present the perfect opportunity to take advantage of increasing player demand and hence make for one of the best FIFA 17 trading tips. Often, specific featured tournament requirements will specify players from a certain league, nation or type. Find the most popular players which fit the requirements and buy them as close to the announcement as possible. Players can easily double in price here (even before the tournament has started). Stock up before others get on the band wagon.
P.s. Watch out for St. Patrick’s Day. Invest in top Irish players during the TOTY market crash for the cheapest prices.
10. Scare other players off your auctions
When at item appears to have a lot of competition, it will often deter other buyers. This works more effectively during unpopular FIFA 17 trading times. If someone else is bidding, stick in a bid followed by another quick bid or two. This can deter the other buyer/s as they may assume the item will be bid up over the next few minutes.
