No matter how much FIFA fans love playing FIFA Ultimate Team, it really is a chore. The constant grind to improve your team and trying to earn more coins just to do that is a lot of work. This is why coin traders get quite an upper hand on Ultimate Team. We know getting started with trading seems complex for most beginners. For that, today Gamopo brings you our comprehensive guide to FUT Trading.

What is FUT Trading?

FUT Trading is the process of making more coins by trading and/or investing on certain FUT cards available on the market. Prices of cards fluctuate over certain time periods- over weeks and even on a single day. The basic idea of trading is simple, you buy a card at its lowest possible price and sell it when it becomes high again. Now this may sound really simple, but there is a lot to learn here. There are multiple ways to trade cards on FIFA Ultimate Team. Today we’re gonna take a look at the most popular forms of trading.

Investing

The first lesson in our comprehensive guide on FUT trading is investing. True to the definition itself, investing is buying and holding a card for a long period of time waiting for its price to increase. But how can we predict that? Well, a card’s price may increase over time for quite a few reasons. But the most common reason is when a card has demand and it goes out of packs (or OOP, in short) soon. Let us take a look at Seko Fofana’s In-Form card that was released during TOTW2.

Seko Fofana's price increase on Futbin

By monitoring his price chart on Futbin, you can see that his price slowly started to increase near the time he went out of packs. The optimal time of selling was on 5th October, the day the next TOTW was released. So, if you bought In-Form Fofana a few days earlier, you could have made a few thousand coins in profit. This is how investments work and this type of investing is known as TOTW investing.

OTW Investing

There’s another form of investing known as OTW (Ones To Watch) investing. This type of investments are made with OTW cards. The specialty about this card is that the rating increases based on the performance on the player as well as his team. So, it is a good idea to buy OTW cards at fair prices a few days before the player’s team plays. You can sell the card right before the match of the team or risk selling later. When you risk selling later, you’re assuming that the team of the player you’ve invested in will win. Basically, it’s high risk, high reward.

Marquee Matchups Investing

Marquee Matchups is a regular SBC that goes live every Thursday. It is a collection of SBCs of the week’s most hyped matches. Usually, in those SBCs, the solutions ask for players from certain teams such as Bayern Munich, FC Barcelona or Manchester United. The idea is that you predict the matches that the next Marquee Matchups will feature. Accordingly, you will pick up a few cards of those very teams. You can either sell those cards right before the Marquee Matchups is released or risk selling right after. If the predictions are right, you can sell those cards for quite a profit an hour or two after the release.

Sniping

Sniping is a term you may have often come across on Ultimate Team. Throughout the day, players often sell good cards for incredibly low prices on the transfer market. The idea is that you keep searching the market to get those deals. This can be done using specific filters and you keep changing your bid price every search. However, the drawback is that you have to have incredibly good reflexes to pick up those cards. More often than not, someone else will pick up those cards instead of you.

Mass Bidding

Mass Bidding is the art of bidding on multiples of the same card. The idea is that you pick up a few cards by bidding around 10% less than the buy now price. When you bid on multiples of the same card, you’re guaranteed to pick up at least a few. You can then sell these off for a quick flip or keep them to sell later. Mass Bidding works on pretty much every FUT card. You just need some luck to get great deals on cards.

The idea is to trade by having a proper mix of investments and quick flips. That way you minimize a lot of the risks by having a diverse portfolio of cards. We wish you the best of luck for your trading journey on FIFA 23. And of course, may the pack luck be in your favor!

A new season of FIFA is dawning upon us. For all the FIFA Ultimate Team players out there, it’s another year of grinding to make the best team possible. Let’s face it, we all hate grinding and we all wish we could make things a little easier. With that thought in mind, Gamopo brings you the ultimate guide of getting the best start on FUT 23.

When is FIFA releasing?

FIFA 23 is set to release on all platforms on 30th September, 2022. By platforms, we mean Xbox Series X and Series S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Google Stadia, and Microsoft Windows. However, if you already have (or getting) the Ultimate Edition, you can start playing from the 27th which is 3 days earlier. But that’s not all you’re getting out of the Ultimate Edition.

Perks of Ultimate Edition

Let’s take a look at all the perks that come with pre-ordering the Ultimate Edition:

  • 4,600 FIFA Points
  • Three Days Early Access, start playing FIFA 23 on September 27
  • FUT Ones to Watch Player Item (Untradeable)

  • Kylian MbappΓ© Loan Item, for 5 FUT matches

Be sure to keep an eye out on our news section for more of such guides and tips!

Best Start on FUT 23

In order to have the best possible start on FUT 23, it’s important you keep a few pointers at the back of your mind. Let’s go through all of them:

Web App

The Web App is the in-browser application for all your FUT needs. If you haven’t used it before, just know that you can do pretty much everything there except, of course, playing matches. You can set formations and tactics, buy and list players on the market, buy packs and much more. The Web App for FUT 23 comes online 21st September. You can start using the transfer market if you’re a returning FUT player with an account in good standing. The FUT 23 Companion App comes out the next day but it’s not that important unless you trade on the go.

Got the Ultimate Edition?

If you picked up the Ultimate Edition, there are some stuff that you need to keep in mind. Like previous years, the 10-hour access (that comes with EA Play) doesn’t release before the Ultimate Edition. So, if you picked up EA Play along with the Ultimate Edition, there really isn’t a difference in that case. However, if you got yourself the Standard Edition along with EA Play, you can play for 10 hours from the 27th before the full game releases.

Covering the Basics

Nations to Pick

When you’re getting started, pick any of the following as your preferred nation:

  • England
  • Italy
  • Argentina
  • Brazil
  • France

I would suggest going for either England or France because they provide you some of the players you’re gonna need for Advanced SBCs.

Got Packs?

If you got yourself some loyalty packs, open all of them and sell everything that has some value. These coins at the very start matter a lot! You should have a few thousand coins if you do it properly. If you pack a meta player or something high-rated, hold onto it as the price will increase within the next day or two.

Foundation Objectives and SBCs

Dive right into the foundation objectives and SBCs after you open the packs. Objectives are pretty much the same as it always has been before. You gotta apply some contracts here and there, make your team reach max chemistry and buy or list players on the transfer market. For the SBCs, you have to keep in mind that you’re almost guaranteed to make more money than you invest. Therefore, don’t hesitate to spend some coins to get those much needed players. Finish all of the advanced SBCs as quickly as you can utilizing as many players you already have in your pile.

If you follow all of the guidelines, you’ll be looking at the best possible start on FUT 23. May the pack luck God be in your favor on this Ultimate Team!

 

The outstanding Footballing nation, Brazil have now been crowned the undisputed Champions of the FIFAe Nations Cup 2022. The South American nation beat Poland in the grand-finals to bring the trophy home.

FIFAe Nations Cup

 

The FIFAe Nations Cup is the final event of the FIFAe Nations Series. FIFA is the official organizer of the tournament presented by EA Sports. The last time the event took place was in 2019 with France picking up the title. The event was cancelled the following years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This year, 24 teams from around the world took part in the competition. Denmark were the hosts of the Nations Cup this time. The tournament followed a 2v2 format and 24 teams were drawn into 4 groups of 6 teams each.

Brazil’s Lineup

  • Gabriel “Crepaldi” Crepaldi
  • Klinger “Klinger” Correa
  • Paulo “Phzin” Henrique Chaves

Brazil’s Run

Brazil were placed in Group A alongside the likes of Argentina, hosts Denmark, England, Scotland and Singapore.

The Selecaos were off to a rather unimpressive start drawing their first two matches against England and Argentina. Things continued to go South as they lost their next match 1-2 against Denmark. Another draw and a loss against Scotland and Singapore respectively pulled them real close to saying goodbye to the Nations Cup 2022. However, they turned things around going on to win 4 out of their last 5 matches against the same nations. With the help of some luck, they found themselves in the knockout stages. Their first opponent was Spain winning 2-1 on aggregate against them. Up next was defending champions France who also fell a goal shirt losing 1-2 on aggregate. It was then Italy that stood between the South Americans and a chance of making it to the finals. A plethora of goals were scored in both the legs with scorelines reading 2-2 and then 2-3 in favor of Brazil sending them into the grand finals.

The Grand Finals

The grand finals of the FIFAe Nations Cup 2022 took place between Brazil and Poland. Furman and Damie represented Poland while Phzin and Crepaldi hoisted the Brazilian flag.

In the first leg, the teams seemed to play it safe trying to keep possession of the ball. Both the teams created solid chances throughout the 90 minutes but failed to score a single goal. As was the case of many matches, the first leg of the finals ended 0-0. However, fans were not disappointed with the second leg. In the 42nd minute, Walker delivered an early cross from the right side with Kimpembe slotting in a fine volley making Poland go up 1-0. Brazil picked up the pace and started to play a bit more aggressive in the second half. It soon paid off thanks to some razzle dazzle followed up by a beautiful finish by Messi in the near post. The scoreline was now 1-1 and it was anybody’s game now. The clock kept ticking and as it reached the 90 minute mark, the unthinkable happened. A shot by the R9 Ronaldo deflected off of a defender of Poland and was picked up by Cristiano. A beautiful flick to turn it towards the post and was volleyed past the keeper in the 92nd minute. The final whistle blew right after the kick-off and the arena erupted in celebrations for Brazil.

The first ever South American champions of FIFAe Nations Cup, Brazil is now home with the largest share of USD 400,000.
