Welcome to our exclusive FUT newsletter! We’ve teamed up with FIFA Streamer and YouTuber, ELYYT (@ElyytFIFA on Twitter) to bring you ground-breaking market analysis and coin making tips. These tips are far from the usual “buy low / sell high”. Enjoy this week’s wrap up of the FUT 17 Transfer Market and details of the FIFA 17 St Patricks Day offers leak!
FIFA 17 St Patricks Day Offers Leaked
Weekly FUT Round Up
This week we will be seeing the release of the FIFA 17 St Patricks Day Offers, which have already been leaked. I’ll be giving you my tips going forward, as we could see a dip in prices due to the amount of promo packs being opened in the next two weeks.
Buying and Selling FUT Cards
The market is going to take a small dip in prices this weekend, especially at the end of Weekend League. The combination of people opening the FIFA 17 St Patricks Day pack offers and selling their weekend league squads is going to inevitably cause a drop. The true question is “How much will it drop?” Personally, I do not expect a crash but simply a drop in prices. It is possibly to buy cards on Sunday and Monday and flip them for your normal weekly profit by the end of the week, but with FUT’s 8th Birthday approaching, the weekly investing method is more risky than normal. I would consider going throughout this week with your coins liquidated because ultimately the cards will drop and that is the safest route. I will not be buying many cards at all.
Selling gets a bit more tricky. Hopefully you’ve followed my updates for the past few weeks, and sold last weekend when I advised. With Weekend League steadily approaching, that benefits you, of course. However, with FIFA 17 St Patricks Day offers going to be released on March 16th, that could be detrimental to your selling. I would sell any cards that are not still in packs, such as informs, MOTMs, etc, into the weekend league hype. Any cards that are currently in packs such as normal gold cards, I would sell ASAP before they drop even further from the packs. Just understand, with your stubborn procrastination of selling, you may be taking a loss.
Squad Building Challenges
In case you have been living under a rock, SBCs are one of the most effective ways to make profit in FIFA 17. This, of course, does not even require you to complete a single challenge. In this section, I will explain and predict possible SBCs in which you can make investments that will guarantee you profit.
St. Patrick’s Day
As you can see from the leaked St. Patrick’s Day screenshot above, there will be a “Pot of Gold” Group SBC. Some SBC possibilities for this may be using the gold irish cards that I told you to invest in lst week. Another idea may be within the Irish League: There could be an SBC that requires Irish players from the irish league, or a curveball. Non-irish players from the irish league. Possibly a requirement with the shamrock rovers due to the name “Shamrock,” yet this is also a longshot. Many have already invested in gold irish players, so you’re best bet is to only pick up irish players right after the SBC is released if they are required.
Roy Keane Legend SBC
While George Best is from Northern Ireland, Roy Keane would be a more likely Legend SBC if they were to release on on St Patrick’s day, given he is from Ireland. Many people believed that the Legend SBC would be dropping earlier this week on Tuesday to fit the rough schedule of how EA have been dropping these SBCs throughout the year. Could the delay for the release of this SBC to drop it on St Patrick’s Day? Possibly. If they do, Roy Keane played most notably for Manchester United, but also played for Cobh Ramblers, Nottingham Forest, and Celtic. Consider the gold cards from these teams as possible investments.
TOTW Guaranteed SBCs
So much investing has already gone on from the speculated TOTW Guaranteed SBCs.
Considering the market is going to be enduring FIFA 17 St Patricks Day offers followed by the 8th FUT Birthday promotions only approximately a week afterwards, we will likely see these SBCs soon. That means if you’ve already invested in these 83/84 rated cards along with discard informs, keep holding. If you haven’t invested in these cards yet, you could take the risk and invest now in hopes that there is a TOTW 26 Guarantee SBC. With the promo packs from St. Patrick’s Day and FUT Birthday, we are more than likely to see a TOTW Guaranteed SBC for TOTW 27, in my opinion. This is simply due to the fact that if there is a TOTW 26 Guarantee SBC, they would still need a TOTW 27 Guarantee SBC to stabilize the market for FUT Birthday which could have an even more drastic effect on prices.
Player of the Month: March
Although it is quite early for speculation, Josh King has already put away 4 goals in 2 games in March for Bournemouth. Lukaku also has not had a bad start to the month either. Considering the inform Boruc is quite cheap for Bournemouth, and the Belgian informs took a heavy hit when POTM Kane was announced, I would consider investing in some of these cards during the peak of the St Patrick’s day hype when cards are at their lowest point.
Final Words: Your focus this week should be making coins on St Patrick’s Day SBCs. Be sure to check the SBCs every day at 6PM UK (which is now 2PM EST due to the time change) and quickly buy up cards required for the SBCs. TOTW Guaranteed SBCs are likely coming, so begin your investments for them, and to be safe you can always follow the golden rule: Sell into the hype.
