Breaking news regarding FIFA 15 and the Transfer Market. Trading will unfortunately never be the same again, new ways to make coins will become apparent very soon after the introduction of FIFA 15 Price Ranges, which basically prohibits clever traders that take advantage of sloppy listing skills. The entire FUT 15 Transfer Market (Web Apps and Consoles) closed at approximately 5pm UK today (March 9th 2015) to prepare for an ‘important change’, followed by 3 hours of FIFA Ultimate Team maintenance at 6:30pm UK.
Starting today EA are introducing a new feature to the FUT 15 Transfer Market, called ‘Price Ranges‘. Reading between the lines, this is the reason why the Web App Transfer Market has been down since February 14th 2015. That’s over three weeks, which is beyond a joke.
Transfer Market and FIFA 15 Price Ranges
EA have declared that the new feature will;
- Help FIFA players understand the value of the players within their Club.
- Make high-rated players more attainable for all FUTers, and ensure a level playing field. Gone are the days when an in-form Ronaldo would sell for 15,000,000 coins.
- Further restrict illegitimate coin transfers (in essence coin selling).
Evidently, the NEW FIFA 15 Price Ranges feature will ensure item prices now, differ from current prices. However, EA have confirmed that their relative value to other player items on the Transfer Market will remain consistent in order to maintain a level playing field for everyone. This certainly changes A LOT regarding making coins, and until we see the price ranges for lower tiered players we cannot fully advise you on your best coin making strategies (we’ll be covering this thoroughly in the coming days)!
FIFA 15 Price Ranges feature more details
- An Items ‘Price Range – min and max value’ will be universal across all platforms (Xbox, PlayStation and PC). This is beyond belief, especially when the supply and demand is different on each platform. From what we can see this will mean that items will easily hit their maximum or minimum values, meaning either none of that player will be available or none will sell. If you are to implement price ranges then they need to be regularly updated and most importantly seperate for each platform.
- You have to keep both the Starting price and Buy Now price within that price range.
- When you go to list an item on the FUT 15 Transfer Market, the price ranges will appear. These price ranges will be set by the FIFA Team based on analysis of past Transfer Market prices (we’re unsure in the future whether these will change on a daily basis or whether they are ‘set in stone’ as such for a prolonged period of time).
- Open bid transfers will be unavailable after Price Ranges have been activated (later today). In order to list an item on the Transfer Market, you will have to set a “Buy It Now” price within the Price Range.
- The Price Range for each FUT item will be set wide enough for you to still enjoy trading on the Transfer Market apparently, but will evidently significantly change the dynamics of trading.
- The Price Range for certain players may be adjusted in the future as EA work to improve this feature over time.
- New IF ‘In-form’ FUT player items will receive a Price Range upon release, as we’re assuming other in-form players will (including TOTS, MOTM etc).
Perhaps worst of all, EA have also confirmed that in conjunction with these changes the Transfer Market will remain inaccessible from the Web and Companion Apps.
