Today is the day, OTW are coming soon…
Today on Reddit, one user went through concept players and found duplicate concept cards. Essentially what this is, is a placeholder card that looks like another players card, which really is a new card, in this case OTW. As a result, whilst we can confirm the ratings of the OTW cards but not the exact players. Here is the list of potential players as well as the mount of cards of that rating:
1 x 94:
1 x 88:
3 x 85:
5 x 84:
- De Vrij
5 x 83:
3 x 82
- Gelson Martins
- Felipe Anderson
4 x 81
But what does this mean for us, surely it’s too late to invest? You would be correct, it is too late to invest. Players have already been inflated a lot on preparation for OTW.
I asked on my Twitter, to find out what everyone is holding, and TONS of the community is holding loads of the same cards, ready to sell when OTW is out… whilst I can only confine what I see to a few followers that answered the tweet, my suspicion is that too many people have invested themselves into these NIF cards.
When it comes to 15:00 GMT, EA will announce the official team that makes it into OTW.
This means that some players will try and buy their NIF cards at this point, but from there, the market will be pouring with NIF cards listed up by everyone at once. This will cause huge amounts of panic selling and hopefully some extremely cheap cards.
Our hopes is to pick up these cards for extremely cheap prices due to panic selling and then resell when they return to a regular price.
This guide isn’t to say that some players won’t raise in price. I believe some of the less invested cards will go up and then drop for a bit with a slow rise throughout the week, however we will try to capitalise on other people panic selling
If a player, let’s say for an example Mahrez, is heavily invested and doesn’t make it into the team, we can expect even more panic on the market than ever before too.
15:05 GMT – Look for the players that have dropped the most in price from panic selling, from that list of potential OTW cards
18:00 GMT – Look to sell back those cards we picked up to the market (I will have an update post to let everyone know what I buy, how much and another update for when I sell them back to the market!)
This should be the lowest prices on the market are all around, and so will likely open up plenty of good investments. We may however continue to hold the panic sold OTW NIF cards if they look to be rising still
