Out Of Packs Investing is a trading method that takes advantage of when supply stops and demand stays the same, especially for TOTW players.

The Method

The value of a player is determined by 2 factors. The supply of the player from packs and the demand for that player. When players aren’t in packs the supply goes away and if the demand stays consistent their price will go up. When a META gold player goes out of packs there is an opportunity to make coins.

This happens almost every time EA drop a TOTW/Promo team. People want those META players in their teams for the weekend league. If you can pick them up just before they go out of packs, you’ll be able to sell them for a big profit later in the same week.

Every week a new TOTW is released and often on Friday a new promo is introduced. The new cards temporarily replace the base version on the market. Especially when the gold version is often used in teams or SBCs, we will see a rise in price before going out of packs. Buying before the predictions arrive and selling when the predictions are released is often a safe and profitable way to make coins using this method.

This is especially effective trading method early in a FC game cycle. The pool of META players that people can choose from is very small. Meaning the players that are can get very expensive.

Keep in mind that the biggest key to success is early research. If you want to make a lot of coins using this method, you need to start buying as soon as a player does something special in real-life matches.

Common Mistakes

When using the Out Of Packs Investing Method, the most common mistakes are the following ones:

Late Investing.
Buy before the hype. Make sure you’re not buying at the same time as every other Ultimate Team player. Avoid buying in the days leading up to a big promo. Everyone will be doing the same, so prices will already be inflated.

Very High Rated Players
The price of 88+ rated players is already so high that they are unlikely to rise enough to make them a worthwhile FUT investment.

Step by Step

    1. Choose your Targets
      A new Team of the Week is announced every Wednesday and a new promo almost every Friday, both at 6 pm. Focus on players from bigger leagues and nations that are good enough to make it into FUT Champions squads. Check their price and make sure there is enough room for it to rise. Do this as quickly as possible, so you can pick up the players before their price starts to rise.


    1. Buy
      Buy the gold versions of the META players you have identified as quickly as possible. The earlier you buy, the better price you will get your players for. As time passes they will become rarer on the market as their supply has gone away. For out-of-pack investments for promo cards, this is difficult as you don’t know who’s going to be in the promo team. With cards that can get into TOTW, you have to buy
      directly when a player does something outstanding in real life, like scoring 2 or 3 goals. If you miss the right buy time, wait for moments when many packs are opened.


    1. Hold
      You may need to hold your investments until their prices go up again.


    1. Sell
      Sell when everyone buys. Play it safe and sell before the card actually goes out of packs. You can also do it on Thursday nights, when people are building their teams for the upcoming Weekend League, forcing the demand for META players up, without the supply to match it.


  1. Repeat
    You can repeat this trading method every time a new TOTW or Promo team drops. You just need to identify the right META gold players to invest in. This will get easier each time you invest.
