FIFA 17 Halloween Cards Prices & Making Coins
There are several things to note over the FIFA 17 Halloween program;
- Prices will initially start higher as demand is usually at an all-time high and supply is at an all-time low. This may potentially change nearing the temporary boosts.
- As demand levels out and supply increases, prices will gradually drop. However do not underestimate the impact of their temporary boost in stats combined with these players being removed from packs. This will increase demand and unless prices are being artificially propped up, prices should rise if you invest at the most optimal time. Some ratings will significantly increase, some by 10-11 OVR!
- Keep an eye on the FIFA 17 Squad Building Challenges, these requirements can cause sizeable player price fluctuations!
