A: Lightning Rounds are new rounds of happy hours every three hours hour in which promo packs are available on the store until they run out.

Q: How Lightning Rounds work ?
A: On Lightning Rounds there are a global limited amount of packs to be sold. The first to come are the first to be served. On other hand, without a limit of packs for each user, you are free to buy how many promo packs you want as long as they are not sold out.

After the Cyber Monday, prices will go up again but not to the levels between Fut United and Black Friday.

  1. Vijay Lohitsa

    But what about January and February. I dont mind holding on to them. If I look at prices for Benzema on Futbin as much as 22nd or 24th of November it was 50k+. Wont the prices go back as much.

    I remember in Fut 15 Benzema was as high as 60k in April when I got Fifa 15. What do you think.

  2. Hi Rodrigo,

    Is this the best time to invest in players and stock them. That is buy players as the prices are low. I understand that after the holiday season that is in January prices will go up when one can sell them for a profit.


  3. Hi Rodrigo
    I got Aubameyang in Black Friday in PS4. Since i got him his price has been going up and now he sells in 40k, so my question is if should i sell him now or wait? Will prices go up or down and if they are, when?

      1. I will sell him. As always, you helped me a lot. Thank you very much Rodrigo.

        1. Hi Rodrigo, I am looking forward to buy some players in PS4. i need your help, i want to now when will prices go down ?
          Thank you

  4. Rodrigo, no packs at all are available on FIFA 15 New Season, except for 7.5k etc. packs. Why have EA Sports done this ?

  5. Marvin Torres

    hi rodrigo can you help me to make a team with silva ozil and william and diego costa thanks rodrigo for you help

  6. When do you recommend me to invest in players? Friday or Monday? (Because obviously on the other days there will be no lightning rounds)

  7. So Rodrigo, I am confused now – what is special about BF if the packs are the same? I just packed Song – seriously? It is similar to anytime I got a pack. What s all special about it then? If players prices are going down but I only have 50k what can that do to me? Shall I keep getting packs by my 2,000 FIFA points or it is just a waste of time and points/money?

    Please tell me what is the best way to make use of this so called BF?

      1. Didn’t get any good player at packs Cz it was a rip off and o couldn’t even find the (50 or 100k ) lightening rounds they were talking about. Shall I wait until Monday or go for the 25 K which got me no good players yesterday?

        Also, I bought a couple of great players that came cheap yesterday and I built a team that I like a lot even though those players aren t my favorite in real life but this is why FUT is such a great game that actually synchronizes with real life soccer

        I got Candreva, AZp, Witsel, Firmino, Vidal (loan), Thiago, Basta, Alex Sandro and Manolas all within my 50 K range which was a blast and I also still have 25k as of today.

        Muller is such a bargain at CF (4-4-1-1) alex Sandro, Thiago are such a beautiful pair. Candreva – my god, I know both of us (you and I) like Cuadrado a lot but this FUT, Candreva is such a great buy! He is amazing!! And also his work rates work better for me than Juan.

        My squad below for any thoughts

        I also have to mention that I replaced Koulibaly with Manolas and I get Tevez as a 1st sub if Dybala isn’t performing. I absolutely love this squad.

        Any thoughts?

        1. Hi.
          As I already told you: forget packs. Don’t waste your coins with them.
          “this is why FUT is such a great game” Totally agree with you.
          If you love your squad, my personal opinion is not important. Play and have fun!

  8. Hi Rodrigo

    Are prices lower today or on Monday? And 100k happy hours expected at 9pm today and Monday?

  9. What is the point of black friday for FUT when all the promo packs are the exact same price as they always are? Most of the promo packs (like Premium Gold players pack and rare gold packs) are complete rip offs anyway. This whole lightning round promotion is a complete sham by EA sports to make even more money from fifa points off dumb little kids spending their rich parent’s money. In my opinion.

  10. i packed ronaldo in september when he was going for 1.9 mil but i was to stubborn to sell him. now hes going for 900k and i got nervous he was going to keep dropping so i sold him for 950k last night. hes currently going for 1 mil. i just got nervous black friday was going to send him down to 700k so i wanted to make a profit. was that a bad decision on my part?

  11. Hello Rodi,
    Please I have Griezmann & Lukaku as they are the most expensive players I have and I got them from playing draft lol. Am poor guy and I want to save coins for these big packs. What do you suggest me to do with them or other players if I get them from draft or somehow. What prices I should put them on the market. I play on Xbox One.
    Please reply asap with kind regards,

  12. Priyanshu Goyal

    Will the prices go back up after BF? When will be the best time to sell players? I won’t be able to play/trade much right now since i am busy till Dec. 5. So When in Dec or Jan are the prices expected to go up/down?

  13. Hey Rodrigo,

    Between Black Friday and FUTMAS, which day will have lower prices on players? I’m thinking of building a team, but I am not in any rush.

  14. Hello Rodrigo ,

    I lost a lot with FUT united . From your experience , there will be a big drop again for Black Friday ? Most players lost 40-50% of their value with FUT untied and they’re not going up so i can hardly imagine how far the prices can fall again . A pre-FUT United player worth 50k is now 25k if not less , so it means he will reach 15k by BF ?
    What EA is doing is very bad for the game , so many happy hours and promotions ruins the market . They are making most players accessible to everybody which is not good and demotivating , soon we will all be facing the same teams . I think the price level Pre-United were the best . EA is using this strategy to kill the coin sellers i’m sure and we players are paying the price . I like to deserve my team and not get it after a few hours of casual gaming

    1. We agree with you.
      Last year the biggest drop was during Black Friday and not on FUT United. However, this year the 100k packs were released earlier and for that reason the crash on Black Friday will not be as bigger as FUT United. But prices will fall, we think.

  15. Got Tevez for 20,000 just now and put him back on sale for 30000 or 40000. Please let me know if I am thinking right or not? I am thinking of buying him back at BF and James or Hazard or KDB. Don’t think that Hazard price will go down that much but let s see!

          1. So now I have my core team (didn’t sell them prior to BF) and I also have 30 k prior to BF wth 2200 FIFA points and I need or at least try to get any of KDB, Aguero or Hazard. Is that possible at BF? Will there be many packs with a great probability of landing a top player as mentioned above? Or what?

            Please advise
