FUTMas Guide for FIFA 15 Ultimate Team

 

Q: What is FUTMas ?
A: FUTMas is an initiative created by EA Sports to celebrate the Christmas season. During the FUTMas there is a new Happy Hour or a new tournament every day.

Q: When is FUTMas ?
A: Every year, during the Christmas season. In FIFA 15, it takes place between December 19th and January 2nd.

Q: Are there Daily Gifts during the FUTMas ?
A: Yes. Daily Gifts are assigned every day between December 19th and January 2nd.

Q: What is the schedule of FUTMas for FIFA 15 ?
A: It is announced only when it happens. To know all the Happy Hours check the following chapter.

Q: FUTMas and ’15 Days of FIFA’ are the same thing ?
A: No. The only thing they have in common is that they are released during the Christmas season. During the ’15 Days of FIFA’, EA Sports offers special gifts to the followers of their social channels.

Q: Which Happy Hours are expected to occur during FUTMas ?
A: From the experience of previous years, the following packs should be released:
Jumbo Rare Players Packs (100k)
Mega Packs (35k)
Premium Gold Players Packs (25k)
Rare Consumables Packs (20k)
Jumbo Premium Gold Packs (15k)
Premium Gold 13 Packs (7.5k)
Gold 13 Packs (5k)
Consumables Packs (3k)

 

FUTMas Guide for FIFA 15 Ultimate Team

 

Q: Are there new packs during FUTMas ?
A: Yes. Gold 13 Packs and Premium Gold 13 Packs are only available only during FUTMas. They are just like Gold Packs and Premium Gold Packs, for the same price, but with an extra free card.

Q: When will 100k packs be released ?
A: In the previous years, 100k packs were released on December 26th and January 1st. We think they will be released again on these two days.

Q: It is possible to know which packs will be released on which days ?
A: No. We can only speculate on the basis of what happened in previous years:

    December 19 to December 24
    Gold 13 Packs (5k), Premium Gold 13 Packs (7.5k), Jumbo Premium Gold Packs (15k), Premium Gold Players Packs (25k) and Mega Packs (35k)
    December 25
    Mega Packs (35k)
    December 26
    Jumbo Premium Gold Packs (15k), Rare Consumables Packs (20k), Premium Gold Players Packs (25k), Mega Packs (35k), Jumbo Rare Players Packs (100k)
    December 27 to December 31
    Premium Gold Players Packs (25k), Rare Consumables Packs (20k), Jumbo Premium Gold Packs (15k), Premium Gold 13 Packs (7.5k)
    January 1
    Jumbo Rare Players Packs (100k)
    January 2
    Premium Gold Players Packs (25k), Jumbo Premium Gold Packs (15k)

Q: Is there any limit on the amount of packs we can buy ?
A: Yes. The limits are the usual ones. You can see them here. However, on Boxing Day (December 26th) and on the last day (January 2nd), there isn’t an individual limit. There are global limited quantities which means that whoever comes first is the first to be served. The lighting rounds take place every two hours and the best packs are usually the last ones to be released.

Q: How different are the tournaments released during the FUTMas ?
A: They have better prizes.

Q: How FUTMas affects the market ?
A: The FUTMas has a significant impact on the FUT 15 market, especially on days when the best packages are released (December 26th and January 1st). On these days lots of packs are sold and many new gamers start playing the game. There are more cards on the market and the prices are lower. Usually the prices drop more than 20%, which means that you can buy cards and sell them shortly after by very considerable profit margins.

Q: How to profit with FUTMas ? When should I sell and buy cards ?
A: It is very easy to make coins during the FUTMas. You just need to sell and buy at the right time. Don’t buy packs. Take the chance to build a better squad or to buy low and sell higher.
For someone less experienced, the best thing to do is to sell everything as soon as possible and (re)buy the cards during Happy Hours featuring 100k packs. The prices will be higher a few days after the biggest happy hours, even with TOTY coming (January 12th).
We suggest to the most experienced gamers to pay attention to the estimated dates for the FUTMas’ Happy Hours in order to buy and sell the cards several times during this period.

  1. Should I sell all my players and buy them again on 19th? If so, by when should i sell my players?

    Also, another question, do prices of NIF cards go up when their TOTY is released? So should i buy those players before the TOTY release?

    BTW Bharadwaj asked what happened to the player review he sent. Is it fine or does he need to change sonething?

  2. Great info thanks. Unfortunately I was caught off-guard for the black friday deals, so will be ready this time.

    So buy during next 100k day, sell just before the next 100k, buy again, then sell all before the TOTY. Will TOTY crash the market more than Black Friday?

    So far I’ve found players worth 40-60k seem to be the best to buy when prices drop.

    • In our opinion the players between 2k and 5k are the best ones to buy. It’s easier to find these players by 50% off than a player of 60k being sold for 30k.
      Prices during TOTY should be lower than the ones of Black Friday .

  3. Sir please tell me the exact hours after when I can buy 100k packs ….because whenever I bought any rare player packs I got no better players with 85+ rating..
    So when will be the best oppertunity for me to get 85+ players in that 100k pack?

  4. Hi Rodrigo
    I have a simple question
    The market will stabilize somehow between FutXmas and TOTY? There will be like 10 days after Xmas and before TOTY, where there will not be any special events going on. So, will the market prices go up something between these days? Maybe I could buy 5k players during FutXmas and sell them just before TOTY

  5. want to buy a team tonight, but i want it to be a team that can win games with. what kind of team should i buy and what price range so i am not losing lots of profit during futmas

      • No, I definitely read the whole article. That’s why I noticed u have the same info as everyone else, nothing more. But fix ur dates bro, apparently Monday the 22nd doesn’t exist in futmas!

        • ” u have the same info as everyone else” Really ? I haven’t looked for other websites but they published the packs it will be released between December 19 and December 24, for example ?
          Again: if you read the whole article I’m sure you will find much more info than you will find in any other place.

  6. Hello ,
    Nice article as always hope you help me in this FUTmas it is the first time for me to catch it as i am a new player , just a few months ago
    I have 600k coins right now could you please recommend me the best way to use them , i see that the 100k rare players pack are on the market right now should i go for one !
    Ps : i never buy a pack only 3 or 4 times in the first of the game to comple some objectives ; 600k from trading in the market
    My main squad :
    St: karim benzema , cerci , baca , lacazette
    Midfielders: james , modric , grizemann , arda turan , koke , gabi , feghouli , reus , jesus navas
    Defense: pepe , varane , otamendi , carvajal , marcelo , coentro , montoya , arbeloa
    Gk: casillas , moya
    Regards

    • Hi. Thank you for your words.
      First advice: don’t waste your coins in packs. Let others do that. Not you.
      Second advice: Use the 600k you have to buy cards during 100k packs (December 26, for examples – not confirmed). Sell them one day later. You will be able to have a profit higher than 30%.
      About your team / Next Buys: Sergio Ramos
      More suggestions here

      • Thank you for reply 🙂 ,
        yesterday 100k rare players pack was online at the market i bought players like rooney , benzema , diego costa , sturridge , sterling , modric , hazard at a good prices .
        My two questions are first when i should start selling them or when the market prices wil be very high to sell them .
        Second I was planing to buy bale before FUTMas but i preferred to trade with all the coins i have currently i have no coins just players to trade ; when you suggest me to buy him , after the FUTMas and TOTY finished and i supposed to be made a legit profit or sell players i bought now and buy him during next 100k pack time or TOTY.
        Thnaks in advance .

        • I’m very confused with your reply. “yesterday 100k rare players pack” There was no 100k packs yesterday.
          You should sell as soon as possible because you will be able to buy them again for a low price during the next 100k packs Happy Hour.
          In my opinion you should buy him during a 100k packs HH.

          • 100k pack was online at the market(ios platform) 2 days ago, do you think it will be on the market again during the FUTMas, and how many times it could be on the market again .
            Thnaks for sharing your experince 🙂

          • Hi.
            Sorry about the 100k packs. I didn’t know that you are a mobile player. I have no idea of the packs dates for Android or iOS. Just for consoles: 100k packs may be released at December 26, January 1 and January 18.
            Regards

  7. Will prices on none informs go back up after toty is over or will they stay relatively similar to their crash price for the remainder of the season? And will informs crash during toty and go back to normal after toty? Lastly will informs crash more during the 100k pack futmas or during toty and which toty day will cause the biggest crash in your experience?

    • So many questions! Let’s see:
      1) After TOTY prices will raise but for lower prices before TOTY;
      2) Yes.
      3) Usually, prices are lower during TOTY. But it has to be during TOTY’s 100k packs. Monday night, Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be the days with lower prices.
      Regards

  8. I have a simple question , i bought a group of players for 18500 and start selling them for 25000 is that consider a legit profit or should i increase the selling price ??

    • Yes, it is. But you should lower if you see you can’t see. It will be easier to sell during the night and buy during the day.
      We also suggest to focus in cards with lower price because the % of profit is higher.

  9. Rodrigo, I noticed prices dropped about two or three days ago. Are they going to drop again? When? I wanna buy Suarez

  10. Rodrigo, I starting using your tips on trading and already make a profit of it, so thank you for that.

    I have currently have a liga bbva team which cost me 14k but it was a great value for that money. I got players like Ter Stegen, Jordi Alba, Xavi and Rakitic. I’m thinking of selling this team right now so I could make a profit, I’m trying to get to 400k.

    I wanna buy a first class liga bbva team and keep it for certain time since I’m going in a trip so would not be trading for a while. The deal is a want to get Suarez in my team, the cheapest I’ve seen him is in 540k, currently is 610k. Could I will be able to buy him in December 26? Or should I go for a first class BPL team, with Aguero, Yaya and Di Maria?

  11. Hey when should i buy legends and during toty?when defender, midfielders, fowards or all of them are released?and how much will they fall?
    Should i price fix silver ifs of the firsts totw like for example if ekdal during toty?( i have 1.7 m)
    When will lacazette be cheaper when futmas 100k packs are released or during toty?
    Thx for answering and merry chrismas

    • Hi.
      Lacazette will be cheaper during the TOTY’s 100k packs but buying him during FUTMas 100k packs is also a good choice.
      Price fixing during TOTY doesn’t seem to work OK. You should do it after TOTY when prices will be higher.
      Legends may be cheaper in the first and in the last day of TOTY.
      Merry Xmas for u 2

  12. Hi Rodrigo,

    Can you explain me how a boxing day works (I read that dec. 26 wil be boxing day)? I new to Fut and i have no idea how it works. Does is mean that there gone be 100k packs each 3 hours or that there gone be diffrent packs every 3 hours? And when do I invest my coins: At the and of the day or just after the release of the pack?

    P.S. srry if my english is a bad, I am Dutch and English never have been my best point ;).

    Greetz, Yvan

    • Hi. Welcome to our website.
      A new pack will be released every two hours in December 26th, starting at midnight. The quantities are limited, so the first to come is the first to be served.
      You can have an idea of the packs here, but we think that 100k packs will be released only once or twice. Save your coins for the last packs because usually they are the best ones.

  13. Hey rodrigo great guide.
    I recently bought 50 euro worth of fifa pionts which is 5650 pionts.
    Shall I wait until team of the year 100k packs come out or should I buy the futmas 100k packs on the 26 of December.
    Can I please have your advise on which I should get. Let me know ASAP.
    Thank you

    • Hi. It’s up to you.
      Buying during FUTMas may be better because you can sell the cards and make more coins than during TOTY, when prices should be lower.
      Buying during TOTY has an important advantage too: you may have the luck to get a TOTY card (unlikely but possible).
      Regards

  14. Hi thanks a lot for the well detailed article. do you think there is a good chance 100k packs will be released by the 26th?

  15. So the packs release on britain time at midnight? So for january 26, around which time frame would be the best time to buy players? 3am-6am? noon-3pm? etc

  16. Rodrigo prices on BPL are dropping, Di Maria is already in 36k and Toure in 49k, should I still wait for tomorrow to buy? Which is the best time to buy? UK time.

    Suarez is getting lower, I saw him right now in 490k, still too much for my budget.

  17. First up. Good article, and articles. I read regularly and have profited greatly.
    My only question is this:

    I have received, like everyone I’m sure, a number of Xmas gift packs. Do these have expiry dates?? Apologies if this is written.

    Many thanks
    Keep up the good work.

    • Hi. Thank you for follow us.
      Yes, the XMas gift packs have expiry dates:
      December 18 – One free untradeable Gold pack (24 hours)
      December 24 – One free untradeable Rare Gold Pack (24 hours)
      December 25 – Two free untradeable Rare Mega Packs (48 hours)

      Regards

  18. Hi Rodrigo,

    I want to buy an BPL squad with Di Maria, Diego Costa, Sanchez, Kompany and Ramires, I can afford it now but will it drop a lot during 100K packs? Di maria is the most important for me and now he is about 165K do you have any idea wat his price will be during 100K packs tonight?

    Merry X-Mas and greetz,

    Yvars

  19. hi rodrigo, i want to build a big team , when should i buy that team ?? and when should i sell that team ??
    thank you and sorry for my english

  20. Hi, Rodrigo. Two things

    1. I don’t know if was because the market crashed or something but I bought Di Maria and the card doesn’t appear in the new articles, I have tried to reset the game and nothing, the card appears has succesful bid, I bought him but not in the new articles, what can I do?

    2. A friend make the mistake of buying Aguero at 151k when he was around 60k. He asked me when is the best moment for selling him without losing too much money?

  21. Hi rodrigo. Thanks for the guide and all te explanation here in comments. I managed to buy most of the team on 26 with 15% discount. I will buy 3 more players i need at 1st and sell all team before 10th to buy back during TOTY. Can you just please let me know if its better to sell all now for example today and buy all back on 1st? Also from your experience during ladt year how prices look during toty start-end. Should you buy players during full team release or at the begginning of Toty week? Yhanks

    P.s if this obe double post,please delete previous one.

  22. Buddy, do you know if packs won in tournament can expire? I was thinking maybe to keep my 35k pack till toty…
    Thanks! 😉

  23. Thx for reply mate. Got it, but one more question please. How did it look last year and/or 2012 with 1st january and toty week as it comes to packs? 1st january there was a limit for 100k per account or lightoning rounds like 26th this year? And how is it on 18th? Thanks

  24. So I managed to get some decent deals on the 26th i guess. When should i sell? 30 or 31st? then buy again on the next 100k happy hour?

  25. Hi Rodrigo, great site. You said earlier you expect the Jan 1 crash to be more severe than the Dec 26 crash. How long should it take prices to get to where they are right now after that Jan 1 crash?

    • I think that after January 1st, if EA releases 100k packs, the prices will not be back to what they are right now. Ever. One or two days later they will be much more expensive but not for what they are now.

  26. Should we even sell our informs now and buy back on Jan 1? Because these informs won’t be released in the 100k packs upcoming since they were from previous TOTWs so their supply wouldn’t go up aka wouldn’t the price stay the same?

  27. Hi Rodrigo

    How sure are you that 100K packs will be released on january 1st? And big wil be the impact on players like: di maria, kompany or courtois?

    Greetz Lars

  28. Hi Rodrigo, I manage to buy Suarez in 360k. Was a good deal right?

    When will be the best moment to sell, and to buy again?

    Happy new year!

  29. Nice article man. U help me a lot. But can u tell me who is the best player for me to buy so that i can guarantee selling it later after its price raise again? Ps3 console. Thankyou man! Im trying to make good profit!

  30. This is my team with the formation of 4-3-2-1

    gk – neuer
    lb – alaba
    rb – piscech
    cb – boateng and hummels
    cms – khedira, kroos, modric
    lf – ronaldo
    rf – bale
    st – suarez

    how can i improve this, is sif benzema better than suarez
    this team has 100 chemistry and ver playable

  31. Hi sir rodrigo another question im just confused about the consumable chemistry styles like HUNTER its 3bar on Pace and 3bar on SHOT. Like ronaldo with 93 pace how many rating will it add??? 3 bars mean 93+3???
    Thanks in advance

    • yeah i’m wondering the same thing. i have a couple of players i’m thinking of selling but if prices are gunna go up this week before they go down again i’m thinking i mite hold on a little longer lol how ever if its the other way round i’m gunna sell now

  32. hey i’m just wondering will player prices decrease quite a bit from this weekend on and go up again in the near future or will the stabalise. i’m just contemplating weather to sell yaya toure who i bought for 250 k and maybe selling aguero who i bought for 336 k and i’m not sure if they will both drop any further in price later on?

  33. yeah i’m wondering the same thing prices from what i can see aren’t any higher or lower from a couple of days ago and so i’m wondering will they go up or down over the next few days?

        • So do you beleave that prices will still go up a little during this up and coming weekend even with toty being released on the 12th or will they continue to drop? its just that i’m trying to sell my aguero atm but he still seams to be dropping in price or not really going up at all so i’m wondering if i should just wait till the weekend to sell him. i bought him for 324 k so im kind of hopeing i can atleast break even on him so i can get him cheaper during toty release. and secondly i wanted to know if i buy up a bunch of players at stage one during the toty release and sell them during stage 3-5 then buy the team i want to buy at stage 6 then i should still make a small profit. is that correct?

          • Hi.
            Aguero price is dropping and it will still dropping until the night of January 12th, when he will be cheaper.
            If you want to have profit, don’t buy at stage 1. Do it at stage 2, 5 or 6.

          • thanks heaps rodrigo. i managed to make small profits off all my other players which i’m happy bout but i guess with aguero im just going to have to bite the bullet and get what i can for him them wait to buy him back cheaper.

      • what is the latest day ii should sell this team as playing with it a lot and need it for matches

        gk – neuer
        cb – matinez, hummels
        lb – alaba
        rb – pisceck
        cm – iniesta, modric, kroos
        lf – neymar
        rf – bale
        st – sif griezman

      • hi again rodrigo. just letting you know i managed to make a very small profit off aguero. sold him for bought him for 324 and sold him for 342k. which i’m suprised about because i’ve been monitoring his price drop as well. and even though his price is bein set quite high i’ve notice no one is really will to pay anymore then 336 or less for him. so yeah even though it was a minimal profit atleast its better then a lose. and its great timing to cos now i have over a mill coins for the price crash this week. and have made about 80 k profit maybe a bit more over all which isn’t bad for a learner trader lol still got lots to learn though lol thanks for advise so far man its awsome and has been working great.

  34. At which stage of toty will if muller price be lower?when defender or mids or fowards are released or all of them?

  35. Hey rodrigo i bought if shaqiri yesterday for 340k and now he is 270k and i am planning to sell him. At which stage of toty should i do it?mids forwards defender or when all are released?i know its late
    Also with 2mil will i be able to buy toty di maria or hazard if they make it to toty?
    Thx

    • It was a bad move to buy them one day before TOTY. The best thing to do is to sell him after TOTY week. If you want to do it during TOTY week do it Thursday.
      You probably will be able to buy one of them. Not both.

  36. Hi, im on xbox one, and i just saw that zlatan went down 100k, i have him now and was wondering what i should do, do u have any suggestions?
