The launch of FIFA 15 brings us the insanely popular FIFA 15 Ultimate Team game mode (as well as the iOS version of this mode) which turns us into greedy persons wanting more and more money. And since it’s all for a great cause, I am here to share with you some tips and tricks on how to make a lot of money in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team and do it easy.
There are numerous methods to achieve this goal of increasing your funds in the game, but the golden rule of thumb is to buy low and sell high. However, since this is a lot easier said than done, some examples will surely make your goal easier to achieve. So here are our FIFA 15 Ultimate Team money making tips:
1. Buy Squad Fitness cards
This method won’t last for long (probably) but it worked great in my case as now people are selling their Fitness cards in the game to make money for other cards. Makes sense, but it’s also something you should take advantage of. It’s a risk because we don’t know if the price of these cards will indeed double or triple, but if we compare the current price of the Fitness cards with those in last year’s game, they’re real bargains now and will get more expensive as people will need them more.
2. Scour the market, know the prices
It might seem like a silly advice, but if you know the prices of the cards, it will be a lot easier for you to make money. Don’t forget that EA also charges a 5% “tax” on all sales, so have that into account when purchasing. For example, let’s say that you buy a card for 1,000 fifa 15 coins. If you sell it for 1050, you’d think you’ll make a profit, but instead you’ll lose some money as you will only get 997 coins from the sale. So always try to purchase a card that’s under the market price with at least 10%. This way, you guarantee a bigger gain.
3. Buy high value cards
The bigger the price tag, the better (if you can turn in a profit). Buying a card for 10,000 and selling it for 11,000 gives you a profit of 450 coins. If you buy a card for 1,000 and sell it for 1,100, you only get a profit of 45 coins and you have to go through 10 similar transactions to get to 450. So buy high value cards for the easy money!
4. Perform in-game actions
Have a great game, in other words: perform a lot of successful tackles, shoot on target and score goals. The better your in-game performance, the more coins you will get as a reward at the end of the match. So keep on playing and do it well for some nice extra coins!
5. Contracts & Squad Fitness
There are two extremely important consumables in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team: contracts and fitness. Try buying Gold and/or fitness and sell for a profit. For a contract, you can get a Gold card for as low as 150 or 200 and you can try to sell for 250 for a quick profit. Always remember the 5% “tax” though!
6. Chemistry style cards
Once you have more coins to invest, buying and selling cards with chemistry style can bring you a ton of profit. For example, go for the Hun (hunter) cards which are the most popular right now. The idea is to know the prices on the market, find and buy a striker with the HUN chemistry style at the price of a regular card, then sell it for more. You will get more profit this way and guaranteed sales.
7. Become a tycoon
There are a ton of cards in the game, but you can focus on a single one. My strategy was to bid on a popular badge, get a ton of those for at least 10% under the selling price, then sell them for a profit. Bid on all cards that you can find on that price, some of the bids will be successful, then immediately sell them off for the quick profit. In the “mass buy and sale” process you don’t want to wait and keep on the cards, especially the badges or kits, because the market will soon be full of offers and those who are ready to pay nice money for them already have them.
8. The Monopoly method
This one’s pretty difficult to achieve as you need a ton of coins, but can also give you a ton in profit. The idea is to purchase all the player cards of the same type on the market (say, Messi) and create a need for that player. Then, after a week or so, place them on the market, with the price you want, one by one, so they are instantly bought. You will get rich and hated by most players at the same time.
