EA recommends that players should bid any high value items in minimum option which they would be willing to accept for the items at a fair price during the downtime with FUT 14.
Knowing when the interruption will take place and to bid on as many inexpensive cards as possible immediately are the keys of this method. To utilize this method optimally, players should focus on the items biding for and the timing of bidding.
What items should bid for?
Biding on a large number of cards is encouraged because many of them will be eventually overcome. While considering the budget, players must bid intelligently.
Biding cards with large profit margins
It will be too hard to find cards like Messi and Ronaldo which are rarely offered for sale with a low starting price to make a bid. Instead, find cards whose prices are players at least 50% below from those who worth tens of thousands of coins can be a good choice to bid.
Biding cards with large quantities in the market
Filtering cards with large quantities in the market will make work easier when identifying the normal value of these cards and judging if having more bargains.
Biding cards that others usually don’t bid on
That’s, differentiate yourself in the filters by biding on cards that players usually only bid at the end of the auction will decrease the possibility that someone will exceed the offer. For example, the cards CF-ST can be sold between 8k and 4k, basing on its FIFA 14 Ultimate Team age. First many are put up for sale for 150 coins for allowing a reasonable profit. Then it is possible to bid on dozens of these cards in just a few minutes for existing in large quantities. Finally, most players only bid on these cards in the last seconds of an auction, so it’s a good niche to keep its price low until there. If the auction is over before the ending of the outage, players may be able to buy dozens of cards with a profit of a few thousand coins to each one.
When to bid on?
Do not wait for the last minute to bid. Try to do it 30 minutes before the start of the maintenance scheduled. The closer the allocated maintenance time gets, the less time for other players to overcome your bids and the more chances to succeed.
Use the Transfer Targets List
Most of time, the maintenance of FIFA 14 Ultimate Team will delay10 to 15 minutes. Just two or three minutes before the start of the outage, when you have already bid on dozens of items, exit from the transfer list and focus only on your transfer targets list. It will make you quickly identify the bids that were overcome.
Take advantage of the whole period of maintenance
Maintenances last a few hours while the vast majority of bidding only occurs in the last hour when the cards are up for auction. It’s smart to bid for cards in over an hour before the auction expires and less than the scheduled duration of the maintenance. There are few players in the market when cards expire just a few minutes after the end of maintenance.
Profit margins are huge if using this method. Besides, most of the scheduled maintenance will be done in a low traffic period, meaning that the competition is lower. Juts keep the time when the maintenances will occur in mind.
