Q: If I own a NIF card of a TOTY player, will I get an upgrade ?
A: If you own the regular card of a TOTY player, your card will keep unchanged. If you want the improved version, you will need to buy the corresponding TOTY version in the market or pull it from a pack.

Forwards – January 16th 6pm to January 17th 6pm.

Q: The TOTY cards will not be released all together in packs ?
A: Yes, between January 17th 6pm and January 19th 6pm.

Q: The TOTY cards are expensive ?
A: Yes. A lot. Several cards cost more than 1 million coins. They are the most expensive cards of the game.

Q: There will be happy hours and special packs as the popular 100k pack during the TOTY release ?
A: Yes. 100k packs should be released in January 18th or eventually January 17th.

Q: What happens to the market with the TOTY release ?
A: Such as the Happy Hours, TOTY release is responsible for thousands of pack openings. It also means severe price falls. The biggest difference is that everything happens at an absolute immense scale: these cards are the best in the game, they come in packs for one week and prices fall to never before seen values.
The effect caused by the Team of the Year is felt way before it’s even announced. The game barely starts and there are already some players planning on building their squads in January, at a point when buying the best players will cost them the same as how much they’d spend building an average team in the beginning. Many others decide to monetize their teams, selling them all before the TOTY comes out and then buying it all again. The start of a more severe devaluation happens before Christmas and is prolonged until the TOTY release.

The cards’ prices on the market follow, generally, the tendency illustrated on the following image. We can divide this price behaviour by the following stages:

Stage 1 – Before the TOTY release
Prices start to fall more severely as from the third week of December.
Stage 2 – TOTY release day (12th of January 2015, Monday)
Cards get cheaper.
Stage 3 – Second day of TOTY (13th of January 2015, Tuesday)
Prices slightly rise because the market is saturated with defenders.
Stage 4 – Third and fourth days of TOTY (14th and 15th of January 2015, Wednesday and Thursday)
Prices rise even more because there are only 3 TOTY players available in packs instead of 5 and because everyone is waiting for the most valuable cards to come out: the attackers.
Stage 5 – Fifth and sixth days of TOTY (16th and 17th of January 2015, Friday and Saturday)
Prices fall with the release of the most wanted cards: the attackers.
Stage 6 – Seventh day of TOTY (17th to 19th of January 2015, 48 hours)
Cards get even cheaper since now all TOTY cards are available in packs.
Stage 7 – The week after TOTY
Prices go back to rising progressively until the end of the next week. They don’t hit values as high as the ones on stage 1 but aren’t as low as any of the other stages.

Q: When should I sell my players ?
A: We think that the best thing to do is to sell them before the new year but not during Happy Hours.

  1. Hi Rodrigo
    I was wondering if there is going to be more 100 k packs for the whole team of the year. I bought Fifa points and I was not sure to spend them on 35k packs and 25k packs or wait for 50k packs or 100k packs

  2. If i have a Toty player should I sell him now or after Toty week? Do he transform to a normal card if I don’t sell? Plz tell me

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      No, he doesn’t.
      Depending of the player, he may be more expensive a few weeks after TOTY

  3. I’m looking to buy Manuel Neuer, but I am unsure when to do so. Seeing that his regular card is no longer be in packs. Will his regular continue to increase in price or is it likely that we could see it fall down. I am really confused about what I should do therefore your opinions are greatly appreciated.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Sunday should be the best day to buy him. However, keep an eye to the prices, especially during 100k packs.

  4. I downloaded Fifa 15: UT from the windows store, so many packs which are present in the XBOX version are not available, so which pack should I buy to get TOTY, MOTM, and TOTS players?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      TOTY will not be possible anymore. TOTS only in May/June. You can pull MOTM from any pack with players.

  5. Hi admin . I have a toty kroos bought for 900 k . Should i sell him now for 2500 k or wait … plz tell me if it s price will increase or decrase … Thanks a lot

  6. Hi, i just recently bought the game for Xbox and as i saw in the article, the TOTY players were released in january, is there any chance to get them in gold packs still? are there any specific periods of time when they will be available again or are they just impossible to get in packs after that week in january?

  7. Hey rodrigo, any idea when the next set of packs are going to come out??

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Friday. Probably free packs for everyone. This weekend we will have Happy Hours for sure.

  8. A mate of mine got a toty player after the packs had finished how is that possible. I was there when he opened the pack so I no he was telling the truth

  9. ian …so, I made my 6 coins like u predicted,,, now transfer market is absolutely insane,, blue ronaldos,peles, and ronaldo st go for 15m and r bought in 10 sec flat,,, will the market ever come back down?? 2 mil for an 85 if pogba?? Nutz I say… So with the six bucks I made will I ever be able to buy a pogba or laccazette or even inform tevez for less than a smil?? Crazy even Martin’s went from 44k to over 100 k… How can a new player to FIFA ever compete with the transfer market the way it is??

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      the players will be lower in future. Special the cheaper ones. Just be patient.

  10. I bought reus after TOTALLY for 100k , when should I sell him to get the best price and approximately how much would he cost?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Check his price every day. As soon as you see the price is going down, sell it.

  11. When will toty player rise or fall in price? When is the best time to buy toty from now? Will it ever drop?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It depends of the TOTY player. Their prices are very irregular too, so it isn’t easy to know.

  12. hii. i had purchased david luis toty wen toty gk n defenders were available in packs but nw his value is gone down about 300 -350k … wat should i do?… should keep it … will its vaue will increase to give me a profit?

      1. how uch exaclty as i have him and he is 1.4 million at the moment on ps4 what pricce range will he be going around if he gets upgraded

          1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

            My mistake. Sorry. I thought you were asking if 1.4M would be enough to buy him.
            I can’t give you a price. It would be pure speculation.

  13. Hi.
    I feel I’m late to ask but I wanted to know, TOTY players wont show up in packs anymore? 🙁

  16. I bought IF 86 Sanchez for 550k when do u think his price will be the highest and how much do u think the highest will be? Because I sold most of my team to get him.

  17. Hi Rodrigo can you help me…

    I pulled TOTY Neur. When should I sell him…

    will his price increase in a couple of weeks because he is out of packs… or is selling up asap a better idea?


  18. I just packed Neuer toty, will his price raise when the toty week is finished. Or will he just be arround the 1 million coins?

  19. Jackson Ellis

    Hi i just packed a TOTY robben should i sell him now? or wait until after TOTY?

  20. i just packed toty kroos when shall i sell him as he is 1.3 million now what will his price be after the packs have finished

  21. Rodrigo, please answer

    Ok, so today i was just going anout my business and opening one pack, when i pulled toty neuer. Now, if i get to keep that toty card into fifa 16 i would gladly keep him forever, but if i cant, when should i sell him? Im not really sure what to do with him, because im not sure how the transferring to fifa 16 works. Could you please explain which cards get transferred and which dont and how they get transferred? Thanks man 🙂

  22. ok so i’m confused because 100 k packs have been released and yet some how prices of players are more expensive now then they were and hour ago and they haven’t droped any lower then what they were 2 days ago or then what they were the day before toty was released. so is this something you didn’t expect either or are they prices still expected to drop in an hour or so?. as for a market crash i’m not seeing one taking place at this moment.

  23. Are prices cheaper tomorrow than today?how many packs is tomorrow avaible?what is the best time tomorrow buy players?9pm?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      So many difficult questions !
      Both will be cheap: today at night and tomorrow when they release the 100k packs. We don’t know which ones will be cheaper.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Lightning Rounds today at 7pm, 9pm, 11pm. Probably 100k packs tomorrow too.
      Full TOTY between today 6pm and Monday 6pm.

      1. really hoping the player prices drop a fair bit more over the next few hours aye. they seam to be a little higher today then what they were 2 days ago this is on ps3 though could be different on other platforms. fingers crossed that the 11pm lightning round is 11pm today uk time and not 6pm today uk time otherwise i’m gunna miss the 100 k pack release and the price drop that go’s with it cos i’ll be at work. thats kinda the suck part of living in new zealand cos 6pm uk time is 7 am new zealand time lol do u think the prices will stay low for very long once the 100 k packs are realised?

        1. sorry what i meant to say is i really hope that the 11pm lightning round today is where they might realise either 50 k packs or 100 k packs because if they realise 100 k packs at 6pm uk time today i’ll miss the market crash 🙁

  24. I got a regular david luiz in a pack today. Is there any chance i can get it upgraded to a toty player? I bought the pack on the web app

  25. But is it confirmed? I have heard that they will be out today 7pm(uk)what do you think about prices of players like costa, rooney and sanchez,how much their prices will drop on market crash?what about players whos price is under 10k

  26. Any news about 100k packs?if they come today 6pm,how many hours after that prices will be the lowest? Thanks if u answer

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      We believe that they may be out tomorrow at 6pm (UK time). The prices will be lower one hour later and prices will going down during the few hours after.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Because all TOTY players will be released in packs at the same time very soon.

  27. During TOTY, the seventh day, will all toty players be in packs? If yes, will the market crashes even more? And will the prices return to original value two weeks after toty? For example costa was 50-60k, now he is 23k, will go back to 50-60k???

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Probably all TOTY players will be in packs in Sunday and the market will crash again.
      After TOTY, the prices will go back for prices slightly lower than the old ones.

  28. I,ve read that investing in under 10k players is the best choice. What about trying to invest in cards such as IF aubameyang or current IF alexis, their price might jump even higher than those under 10k? Or still these last will make higher profits?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It’s easy to find players under 10k which price is half of it was. You can’t do it with IF cards. If you buy hundreds of these cards, you can double your fortune.

  29. Hey rodrigo id really appreciate if you could answer me this If toty dimaria is about 4mil now what will be lowest in your opinion he will drop to and when? Also what would be the time the 100 k packs could possibly come out US time? Please and thank you

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      I have no idea about Di MAria price. I think it will drop and probably he will be cheaper during 100k packs, but don’t know how much.
      100k packs may be released this Sunday.

  30. if Lacazette upgraded and he gets transferred what happens to his Inform 81 Lyon Card?

  31. Rodrigo, i am about to open some packs! What will be the best time for me to do so? When all the players are out in packs together?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      When all the players are out you will have better chances of pulling one from a pack.

  32. Do you its clever to invest now midfielders(because now released toty midfielders) and sell them tomorrow?

  33. I have right now 110k coins.when i buy squad?you said that its risky to wait 100k packs. What should i do?buy squad when attackers released or take risk and wait 100k packs.what you will do if you are in my position?what is the probality about will they released these packs?btw thanks for help.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      If I was you, I would take the risk and wait until 100k packs. There are 80% chances.

  34. If planning on selling in the future is it more profitable to buy guys like NIF Ibrahimovic, NIF Robben, and 2IF Tevez or a TOTY, like which will have a bigger jump in price a few days/weeks after TOTY have been released? Thanks for the help!

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      The more profitable is to buy tons of players under 10k. Their price will double in most of the cases.

  35. Hey, just wondering when it would be best to sell a TOTY such as neur? In a few weeks or right away?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      They are more expensive in the first hours after they are being released in packs.

  36. On January 18th, what exact time do 100k packs come out and are they first come first serve?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      We don’t even know if 100k packs will be released in January 18th. If they do, it will be at 6pm (UK time) and will probably be a limited number of packs per account.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Usually they are more expensive in the first hours than a few weeks after they are out of packs.

  37. When must I buy the TOTY players like Luiz and Silva? Are those prices also going to drop or will they rise in this week? I’m going to buy it within this week, but when?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Try to by them during 100k packs. The later you buy, less you will pay.

  38. Hi Rodrigo. I just got David Luiz TOTY in a pack, should I sell him right now or wait untill the TOTY is over, since the prices normally rise after they are out of packs?
    And one more question, those 100k packs, are like the lightning rounds or they just give us limited number of packs for each account?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Sell him as soon as possible. He will be more expensive in the first hours.
      The 100k packs should be a limited number for account.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Probably in January 18th. We suggest you to check his price everyday to know when he is cheaper.

  39. Hey Rodrigo, when will the TOTY defenders be the cheapest?
    I am a little bit late with this question, but what does it matter?!
    I’m wondering if the prices of the TOTY players are also going to drop this weekend (if there will be 100k packs).
    And if not, will the prices of the TOTY players also rise after this weekend or will they drop because of the decrease of popularity?
    So, please let me know if the prices of the TOTY players are going to drop this weekend (or later)!
    Thanks, Luca.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Probably January 18th. In a few cases, they may be cheaper a few weeks after TOTY.
      Yes, they will be cheaper if 100k packs are released.

  40. Hi
    1. I have bought squad today morning (as you recommend) when is the best time to sell it?maybe tomorrow?2. How low the prices will be on saturday and sunday if the 100k packs will not come out?

  41. Should I buy NIF TOTY defenders and sell them Wednsday? Or it may be a mistake due actual popularity in their cards, raising its prices instead of falling?

  42. Hey Rodrigo,
    I want to buy Ramos Toty…on what day the price would be lowest? Today,tomorrow Ort on 18th?

  43. Sorry for bothering you, i got two quick questions 😛
    Will messi’s price drop or increase when his toty comes out, and when do you believe would be the best time to buy him?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Sorry but we already have answered that question several times in this page.

  44. When will the prices of consumables such as fitness cards and healing cards drop? And exactly how cheap will they be when they drop?

  45. Rodrigo I’ve been looking everywhere but can’t figure it out but do you know what day and time 100k packs will be coming out during TOTY (also please say time zone)

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      There are no official news about that.
      We believe that 100k packs will be released between Sunday 6pm to Monday 6pm. There is also a chance to see these packs being released in Saturday at 6pm (UK time).

  46. Hi. So I bought a TOTY David Luiz about 3 hours ago for 840k. I thought that I would buy him and keep him for a period of time since TOTY prices usually rise a lot a few weeks after TOTY is over. But now 3 hours later his price has already dropped to about 760k and I dint know if I just keep waiting or sell him because he could just keep getting cheaper.

  47. Will the prices of a player that gets a toty rise or fall. For example messi goes for 3.5 mill on ps4 will his price rise or fall since he is getting a toty card?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      We already have answered that question several times in this page.

  48. Hi, I have Neuer. Would it be a good idea to try and sell him and rebuy him later? I would still like him on my team. Will his price drop enough for me to make a profit?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Yes, you can sell him now and buy him back during 100k packs. He will be cheaper.

  49. I am thinking about investing in consumables (contracts and squad fitness) as their prices are low for the moment. Do you think they will raise again before friday? If so, do you think it’s a good idea to sell them thursday, so I can invest more friday/saturday?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Yes, but not much. You can do it but don’t expect big profits Thursday.
      The prices will be lower during 100k packs.

      1. Thank you!
        Do you think their prices will raise again in a week or two?
        I already bought a 600 gold rare contracts last night, all for 150. If I could sell them for 300/350, I would make around 100k profit, but when do you expect them to hit 300 or 350?

        1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

          I am predicting that you will be rich.
          In a single week they will raise for 300 coins.

  50. hi rodrigo
    why has players prices gone up? like robbens he was 585k yesterday, today his 650k? when will it be his lowest price?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It’s because he is a TOTY. Now he is more popular and the TOTY card will replace the NIF card into packs.
      That’s why we always say to invest in cheapest players because it is easier to make profit with them.

  51. hi rodrigo,
    i wanted your advice on a team i am going to make. i have 1.5 million coins and i want to make a team with aguero, hazard etc. should i buy the team now or wait till the attackers are released or buy it on sunday when 100k packs probably will come out.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Saturday night they may be cheaper but it’s risky because 100k packs are not confirmed. It depends if you want to take the risk or not.

  52. Hi there, the TOTY defenders just came out, and I was expecting a huge price drop, but the prices of players have gone up a lot. What should i do?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It is not true. That are many players which prices are now half of what they were yesterday. It depends of the players you are looking for.

  53. Brian Williams

    Is it better to hang onto TOTY guys packed and sell them later, or sell them now?

  54. i have got about 4mil can i be confident that all the positions will be released on saturday or sunday please tell me

  55. According to EA’s twitter they have announced the toty which includes Di Maria. I was planning on buying his normal gold card on the last phase as you suggest but I was wondering if his gold card might not drop (perhaps increase) due to the fact the supply of his gold cards will be slowed. I was thinking perhaps the day the attackers are released. What do you think?

  56. Hi Rodrigo. I just sold Ronaldo (4.6mil) and Messi (3.5mil) today which I owned, for more than I bought them for a few weeks ago. Was this a mistake? I’m planning on re-buying when the price goes down. I don’t think prices have gone down massively yet have they?

  57. Hi Rodrigo,
    I just read a lot of comments to see if my questions was between them but as far as I could see it wasn’t (huge respect to you aswell for answering to almost evert one of them 😉 ).
    My question: Do you think its a good idea to buy players tonight /tommorow morning to sell them again the 15th/16th. And then again buy players the 18th to sell them again a few days later. At the moment I have 160k and I want to trade during TOTY to make some coins.

  58. Would you expect if there are 100k packs on sunday, that they will be for a set period of time, or a lightening round?

    (Just working out when exactly to buy in all my big players)

    iI found players to be cheaper in the New Year 100k lightening round that last minutes, than the day after where there was a whole day of 100k packs.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      If there are 100k packs on sunday, it will be between 6pm of Saturday and 6pm of Sunday (UK time).

  59. Prateek Chellani

    Hey great guide Rodrigo. Just one question though. When exactly are the players assigned in the packs. For example, I won a gold pack from a tourney today(12 Jan, 9am UK time). I still havent opened it. My question is that if i open lets say on 13th UK time, is it possible for me to get a toty player in the pack?

  60. I know it would be strictly a prediction but how much do you believe the TOTY defenders and midfielders will cost? Thanks

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      This is just a prediction:

      GK 1.5M; Defenders 1M, except Thiago Silva who will be 1.5M; Midfielders 1M to 2M; Forwards 3M to 6M.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      That question was answered several times in this page. Please, check the other comments.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      They usually don’t announce it. We believe that they will release 100k packs at January 18th but we don’t have any confirmation about it.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      If they release 100k packs and all TOTY player at once in Sunday, that it will be the best day to open packs.

  61. Hello i have some questions:
    i want to build a squad 2 days before toty the squad is 450k how much will it be on sunday when every toty player is released? 375k or less?
    and is sunday the best day to buy packs? when is the most change to get a toty?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      As you can imagine, it is impossible to answer to your question. It depends of many factors, like the players you want to buy.
      If they release all players at once in Sunday, that day will be the best one to buy packs.

  62. Okay thanks for your good advices. I have only chances to build squad 9pm uk time in the evening or 5 am early morning,which one you recommend?which case of these prices will be the lowest ones?

  63. Loik Steininger

    Hello Rodriguo
    I have 5 mil coins in the bank and how many midfielders do u think i could pull and what about the attackers. this is if i spent 5 mil coins for 1 of the two positions not both at the same time

  64. Loik Steininger

    I have 5 mil in the bank and i was wondering what the chances were for me to pack a toty attacker or a toty midfielder?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      As we have answered several times in this page, it is 12th at night, 17th and 18th.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      As we have answered several times in this page, it is 12th at night, 17th and 18th.

  65. I’m looking for a guide explaining the prices fluctuations depending on day of the week and time we buy our cards. Can anyone post a link to such a guide?

    Will it work during TOTY?

  66. 1.When we get a confirmation about that hole team realesed on sunday? 2.What is the best uk time to buy players on monday evening or are the prices as cheep in tuesday of these answers here you suggested to buy squad on monday sell it on wenensday and buy it again on sunday,does it works?does it make a profit?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      1. Only Sunday.
      2. The prices should be lower at late night in Monday than in Tuesday morning.
      3. I made a huge profit in previous years, with that technique. Of course, I’m not responsible if it doesn’t work for you.

  67. Hi sir rodrigo.. In jan 18 what is the best time to buy 100k pack in uk time???
    Is it 4pm uk or 6pm uk like here in manila i got ronaldo in lightning rounds aroun pass 4pm in uk time…. I alsom got sergio ramos and iniesta in around 3am here in manila and 7pm in uk time…
    Thanks in advance

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It is the same to buy 100k packs at day or at night. It doesn’t matter. You chances of getting a good card are always the same: low.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      There is no such thing as ‘TOTY packs’. TOTY players can be pulled from any pack which contains gold rare players.
      You can find the packs prices here.

  68. Hi Rodrigo, first of all thanks for the great info. I’ve had a nosey through the comments and cant see this question from anyone. From previous fifas do you know how many and how often the 100k packs are usually released? I know its not recommended but this year i think i am going to spend 1M on packs and didnt want to wait until the 18th to find out that i can only buy 2 packs and miss the earlier days thats all. Wasn’t sure if it was like 2 packs 12, and 17th, and then 5 packs 18th? Any help much appreciated!

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Thank you for your words.
      We don’t know how it will be this year but in previous years, the 100k packs were released in the last day of the TOTY week. We think it will happen again probably with a limit of 2 packs per player.

  69. Thanks for all of the helpful articles , do you think I should sell SIF Lacazette , I got him for 140k and he’s selling for 180k now, and hope he goes even cheaper during the market crash ? Thanks !

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It depends if you believe that he will get an upgrade or not. If you think he will get an UP card, keep with him. Otherwise, sell him.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      The same amount that these players are usually released. The TOTY cards replace the Not In Form cards of these players.

  70. Can I buy TOTY players straight from the transfer market or do i need to buy them from packs

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Just like any other card, you can buy them from the transfer market.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      There is no such thing as ‘TOTY packs’. TOTY players can be pulled from any pack which contains gold rare players.
      You can find the packs prices here.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      There is no such thing as ‘TOTY packs’. TOTY players can be pulled from any pack which contains gold rare players

  71. When Is Exactly The best time to buy Players Because i’ve seen a lot of People Saying That Buying on Monday 12th Is The best time , Please answer my Question And thanks!

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      We don’t have a crystal ball.
      Prices will be lower 12th at night, 17th and 18th. If they release all players at once and 100k packs in 18th, the prices may be lower in that day.

      1. Will Prices be Much Lower than 12th If that happens Or It isn’t Worth Waiting for.. thank You so Much BTW DON’T FORGET TO USE YOUR CRYSTAL BALL 😉

        1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

          Personally, I think they will release 100k packs in Sunday with all TOTY players, and prices will be lower in that day. However, I don’t have any confirmation about this.

          1. ian ... should i sell if 87 tevez and buy Blue Messi before toty comes out? xbox one??

            Sooo… How much should one pay projected for blue 95 messi, have seen him as low as 4.9… Do u think he will go lower??Xbox one

  72. I just sold Xavi and James Rodriguez to try and get them cheaper, when should I try to buy them again.

    Also, what day do you recommend buying packs.

    Js, I live in Brisbane, Australia

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      You should buy them back Monday night or in the TOTY weekend.
      Our suggestion: don’t buy packs.

  73. When is right time to buy squad during team of the year? I mean when the prices will be the lowest ones.

  74. Ok, you are the expert, if you could only buy one striker price dont matter who would you buy??

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Lionel Messi but Ibrahimovic is also great. However, the best player is Ronaldo.

  75. Aidan Scanlon

    I have a nif Ibrahimovic, its probably past the best time to sell him but what should i do?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Yes, you are late. However, if you sell him now we believe that you will still have profit buying him back during TOTY week.

  76. Hi Rodrigo, just wondering if there will be a time when you have a chance of getting any toty player instead of just defenders or attackers? Thanks

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      As we explained in this short guide, we believe that it will be possible between January 17th 6pm and January 18th 6pm.
      However, it is not confirmed.

  77. when is a good time to buy players NIF (yaya toure, di maria, aguero, rooney) to make a BPL team…

    monday 12th or sunday 18th?

  78. Hi Rodrigo
    I have Lewandowski and it costed me 84,000. Should I sell it cheaper than it costed me to get the profit when the toty come out? About 79,000 for example.

  79. Hi Rodrigo 🙂
    Are you sure the normal players (NIF) of the TOTY won’t be available in the packs after TOTY anymore?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      No. That’s not right. NIF cards of TOTY players will not be available while their TOTY cards are in packs. After that, the NIF cards will be inserted in packs as always.

  80. I already have messi mordic Ramos Lahm humells Ribera hazard all I was thinking from last year to get team of the year in fifa 15. Is it confirmed that whole team would be available in a 100k pack I am having 700 k right now .

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      That question already was answered several times. Please read the other comments.

  81. I´ve read related comments of NIF cards that may feature during TOTY. I assume that NIF prices will be irregular, so, for example, the NIF Di Maria, Rodriguez or Ramos prices may fall during the market crash (a chance to invest on those), or right now may be a good moment to invest and earn profits days after the 18th?

    What do you think?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Now it is NOT a good tie to buy. If you buy them during the TOTY week you will be able to earn profits after the 18th.

  82. do i sell my if 87 tevez, should i buy blue messi before toty comes out… xbox one??

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It’s up to you. In my opinion you shouldn’t waste your coins in that card. It is good but it is too expensive.

  83. Hey are fifa team of the year packs only released for a specific amount of time, like if i am not on at the right time i won’t be able to open a pack??? Or will I be able to open a specific amount at any time like they stay in my promo packs until i buy them??? Or possibly will there be a release with infinite amount of packs so the richest people can buy many of them???

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Or will I be able to open a specific amount at any time like they stay in my promo packs until i buy them – This one.

  84. I wanted to know what day is the best to buy back players such as Ronaldo, Bale, Messi, etc. I have 11 million coins on xbox and i wanted to make as much profit as i can during TOTY. Can u please help? A lot of people say to buy them the first day and others say the last day. I don’t know what to do.

      1. The only thing is, the steady decline predicted over the past couple of weeks has not happened this year! I sold Messi/Tevez SIF/Robben/Benzema IF/Matuidi IF/Aubamayang IF and hey have ALL increased on PSN..all gone up between 5 and 10% in the last week.

        So I’m worried that the usual trend isn’t happening, and the top rated players will not crash as in previous years? What do you think?? Should I stop worrying and see what Monday evening brings ? 😉

        1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

          Maybe you should read carefully our trading guide.
          As you can see here, that steady decline predicted only happens for less popular IFs.
          However, we think their price will go down next Monday.

  85. Hello Rodrigo.
    I am pretty new to FUT, I started playing on 25th December so I dont understand any of these FUTmas and TOTY things. I just read some articles there, and I want to ask you few questions.
    1. Should I sell my whole squad today (9th January) and rebuy it when the TOTY will be released ? If yes, what day exactly should I buy them again? I will write down my squads(got 2 – BPL and Bundesliga) to let you know which players i am talking about.

    F. Luiz– Kompany – Mangala – Walker

    Reus——A. Ramos—–Robben
    Schweinstaiger––L. Gustavo–Gotze
    Alaba– Benatia – Boateng – Pisczek

    2. When I will have a lot of coins these days, what do you recommend to me – to buy TOTY players from Market or to wait and try luck by opening 100K packs if they will be released. If not, should I try just 7.5k packs.?

    Thank you so much for your answer.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Hi. Welcome.
      1) Yes, you should sell them and buy them back in January 12, 17 or 18.
      2) Don’t buy packs. First you should buy the best regular players possible. Then, go for IFs.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Not exactly. They may be more expensive because they will stop to be inserted into packs and because the player is more popular. However, there are many people selling the NIF card to buy the IF card and in that way it becomes cheaper.

  86. Hi I am planning to buy some Legends for my team, eg. Vieri and Zola. When is the best time to buy them, now, during TOTY or after TOTY? thanks

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Usually, Legends prices are not affected by TOTY but you can try to buy them in that week.

      1. Hi. I have realised that the price of the legends has dropped since I asked my question. Do you think the prices will keep sliding down?

      1. Is this graph applicable for all the players or just TOTY players? I just want to know if I buy a TOTY player during the crash and sell it afterwards, will I earn a bigger profit? Or should I just trade with normal players. What do you suggest?

        1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

          It is applicable for regular players during TOTY season.
          It is too risky to invest in TOTY players.

  87. Hi,
    I’ve just read all the comments and there was no answer for my question. I want to buy regular Pogba, Casillas and James Rodriguez cards. You wrote that regular CR7 card might drop a little during TOTY. What about those three in case they become TOTY as well? When should I buy them? Casillas probably won’t get TOTY, Pogba might, but James is the most probable one.
    Thanks for your help and the great guide!

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      We believe that any of these three cards will be cheaper during TOTY. If they get a TOTY the drop will be lower.

  88. Hi rodrogo
    what do you thing aguero under 230 k? or di maria under 120k? thanks for help

  89. Um Rodrigo hello

    I have a question if this was a good sell..

    1. I had all the Real Madrid players except for CR7 since he’s worth Millions. Btw I got Bale in the Rare 100kPacks a day after New Years.I have sold all my Real Madrid players and I have 1million 56 coins.. I sold them after they lost to Milan. Was this a good sell?
    2.Btw last Year I got TOTS Di Maria in the 7.5k pack I sold him after Real Madrid won the UCL and I got 5Million was this smart?
    Btw can you email me and I will show you the Pictures (optional ).
    3. Will it better to buy a 100k rare pack on the last day that the TOTY players are released for a better chance of getting a TOTY player?
    I thank you if you answered.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      1 – Usually selling a team after a defeat is a bad decision because their prices are lower.
      2 – Yes.
      3 – If they release 100k packs in that day, then it will be a good decision.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Please, don’t make questions without reading the other comments. That question was answered several times in this page. Just make a search (CTRL+F) for Messi or Ronaldo.

      1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

        There is no such thing as ‘TOTY packs’. TOTY players can be pulled from any pack which contains gold rare players.

  90. Hey Rodrigo, would you buy players on the first days of toty because nobody can wait for the forwards, or would you buy them when the hole team is released?
    Thank You

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      I suggest to buy them in the first day to sell in the following 3 days. Then buy again in the last two days.

  91. hi,
    i have a if rooney and i am wondering should i sell him now and buy him back during toty. will i make profit?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      IF prices are very irregular. We believe you have chances to make a small profit but it isn’t easy to predict.

  92. Hey I’m waiting for the market crash to buy a few players, but the most expensive of them all is Robben. Most likely he will make the TOTY and his regular card won’t be in packs, so I’m wondering how this will affect the price of his card? When would be the best time to buy his non in form card?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It is difficult to know. We believe that his price may have a slight drop and in that way Monday and Sunday would be good days to buy him. But as we said it is not easy to predict.

  93. Hey Rodrigo
    Am planing on buying this team, What do you think? Any advice? PS ( I dont have enough money for CR or Messi)

    —–Neymar – Iniesta – Bale
    ——–Modric – IF Kroos–
    Alba – MOTM Ramos – IF Godin – Alves

    1. Great team, I have same problem with Messi and CR7 LOL. I would most probably replace Kroos with Rakitic, though, since Kroos is too slow for this game (I hate EA for this). Or replace him with James and interchange James with Iniesta. I would prefer latter.

  94. Just to confirm my understanding: the low of the market should be on the 17th or 18th (when strikers or all players will be in packs).

  95. I have just bought SIF david silva. Will his price rise or drop before during and after toty

  96. I have some Very Good players (Sergio Ramos, neymar, Bale, Vidal if, pogba) when i The Best moment To sell Them? Sorry forse My bad English i’m italian

  97. Hi rodrigo

    What is the best time during TOTY to buy a new team (Best of bundesliga except robben and ribery) ?

  98. Hi Rodrigo!
    Alexis Sanchez cost now 57,5 k in PS, so how much you think his price will drop maybe 40k?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Not necessarily.
      If he gets a TOTY his NIF card will not be available in packs and he will be more popular what will make his card be more expensive. However, people who wants the IF card will try to sell the NIF card which makes him cheaper.

  99. Hi Rodrigo,
    let say that I have coins during TOTY period, what do u suggest: buying pack with chance getting IF players or buying good-yet cheap-palyers on market?
    (In my case, I really want to buy Messi. I (maybe) can get his IF during TOTY but I also can buy him in cheaper price during TOTY)

    Thank you

  100. hi Rodrigo ,how much usualy falls price betwen totys on stage 6? for- 20% ,-30%,-50% ? maybe more ? price of hazard or robben on stage 6 ? do you think that hazarda will bi under 200k ? or roben under 300k ? i m playing on xbox..and in which players is good to invest in ? for those who are under 50k ? or the best players who are worth 300k or more ? thank youuu

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It depends of the players.
      Compared with today, the players’ prices between 1k and 10k can drop 40%. For the players you suggest maybe 25%.

  101. hey, a few questions .
    I want to use all the low price on January 18, so I buy a few players . but wants to make a profit on it.
    when can I best selling players?
    a week later ?

    sorry for my bad english
    and thank you for answer

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      First of all, it isn’t confirmed that all the players will be released at once at January 18.
      One week later seems a good time to sell them.

  102. Will all toty players be available in packs after all or released at once at a time for a certain amount then stop and get like forwards

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      They will be release by positions. There is a chance to be released all at the same day for 24 hours.

  103. Hi Rodrigo, just wondering whether the whole toty coming out on the 18th is 100 % confirmed because I want to pack on the day where they are all out? Thanks.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      “probably”, which means that it isn’t confirmed. That’s what happened in previous years but there are always chances to be different this year.

  104. Hey Rodrigo, I invested all my coins (478k PSN) on buying Ribery, Di Maria, Modric and Vidal whose prices fell a lot due to the lightening rounds. Their prices are slowly climbing, about a 60-70k profit so far, and I was wondering when’s the best time to sell them. I’m guessing hold all the way till 12th unles they fall by 5-10k, am I right? Hope I don’t hold onto them for too long till the TOTY crash begins of course. Thanks! 

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      If you have time, pay attention to their prices and when you see they are dropping, sell them.
      I believe that they Tuesday will be a good day to sell them.

  105. hello rodrigo i was just wondering, you said that all the toty will be available in packs on the 18th. Is that the second it hits 12:00 or will it be midday, THANKS!

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Hi. It is not confirmed:
      Probably yes, between January 17th 6pm and January 18th 6pm.”

  106. I am new to fut and I have a few questions.
    Are toty players still in packs after 18 januari
    How much change do you have to pack a Toty in a 100k pack
    Are there legends on ps3

    Thanks rodrigo

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Read our guides and you will learn a lot.
      1) TOTY players are in packs only between January 12 and January 18.
      2) You can find one spending only 100k. Or you can spend millions and never find. Usually, you will have to spend more than a million coins. Opening packs is like a casino: the house always wins.
      3) No, only XBox.

  107. I have 5.5m coins right now after i sold my team. I want to build the best possible La Liga team with the5.5m coins. Of course without Ronaldo and Messi. Which 11 players do I need to buy? And when is the best time to buy the players?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      You can find the best eleven from La Liga here. Try to buy during TOTY. First and last day should be a nice time.

  108. Guillem Sans

    Ricardo, do you think that a team that is worth nowadays 700 k will drop to 600 k?

  109. When would be the best time to pick up a TOTy player,
    At the very last stage when all players are out?

    Also what would the defender/ prices roughly go for 1mil plus?(maybe a boateng,lahm,neuer,Ramos,alaba)

    Thanks for ur help super informative sight…best on the net!

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      At the very last stage when all players are out. If that happens, of course.
      Yes, we believe that there will be defenders under 1 millions coins.
      Thank you very much !

  110. should i sell the nif players that will include in the toty before the toty? and when should i buy them back?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      No. The NIF player’s prices that will be included in the TOTY may have an irregular behaviour.

  111. Hi Rodrigo,

    How fast will player prices rise after January 19th, 6pm? Will they rise instantly over the following hours, or over the next few days? Nice work on the article by the way.

    Thanks, Oscar

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      TOTY cards are just like regular cards: they come with basic chemistry style and they link just like we explained here.

  112. hello rodrigo i was just wondering how many 100k packs will be given out on the 18th also just checking the 100k packs will be released when all of the toty is available in packs
