Goalkeepers and Defenders – January 13th 8pm to January 15th 6pm;

A: Probably. On the weekend January 25-26th or in January 18-19th.

Q: There will be happy hours and special packs as the popular 100k pack during the TOTY release ?
A: Probably yes.

Q: What happens to the market with the TOTY release ?
A: No one can be sure. It may crashes. In an attempt to get one of these millionaire cards, the players tend to sell almost everything, in order to get coins to invest in packs. The natural effect of this behaviour is to drop the cards’ prices. We think that the greatest drops will be only during the 100k packs and on the weekends (forwards and all team).

Q: When should I sell my players ?
A: We think that the best thing to do is to sell them before the new year.

  13. Hey rodrigo!
    So i’ve been confused about today and these packs. Is it not until weekend its possible to buy packs and have chance to get them all? Is it day by day goalkeeper, defenders then midfielders then strikers then in the weekend all players?

    • Check the schedule we published in this article. First, it will be released only GK and defenders. Two days later, only midfielders and two days later only forwards. There is a chance to see all players being released together in the weekend after the forwards.

  14. Is it best to buy the packs today or wait until the weekend? Didnt quite get it if the release all today or keeper/def today midfield tomorrow attackers after that then the whole team.

  15. hey Rodrigo, is it 100% confirmed that the whole TOTY will be released on the weekend, I don’t want to wait until then to open packs and find out its finished!

  16. How many cards of each player will be released?
    so like, will there be 1000 Neuer’s released and then there won’t be any more?

  17. Hi Rodrigo,
    I havent gotten a TOTY card but in case I do, when is the best time to sell them? Immediately, or after the TOTY release is over. (How will their prices change as time passes?)

  18. Hi just wonderimg, i have a million coins and im going to get a 1 mil bpl team with all expensive players like aguero, hazard, etc. My question is, when abouts during the toty should i buy them or should i buy them now cause some of the prices are rising now. Cheers

  19. Hey.
    I just bought TOTY Lahm for 650k on the ps3. I want to sell him before the weekend so I can carry on trading. Would I get my money back tomorrow morning UK time when the least amount of cards are on the market, or on Thursday or Friday when the defenders are out of packs and do you think I will get my money back?

  20. Recently my dad & I have been noticing players we have sold that were bought through packs come with 7 contracts, but when we sold them we have noticed on occasions the contracts have been removed, but NO games have been played.
    Please can you tell us how this is possible.

  21. If I am looking to buy ibra when should I during the toty? The prices have been fluctuating so much idk when the best time is

  22. Hi Rodrigo. I have normal Ibrahimovic since few months back but I haven’t sold him. Is it too late to sell him now? Will his normal card price rise when the TOTY Ibra version is out? Thank u.

    • Hi.
      Most of the regular cards tend to get cheaper when the TOTYs are out. However, with the regular cards of TOTY players, it usually happen the opposite: they are more expensive now. Messi and Ronaldo are the exception. Maybe you should sell him now.

  23. On Fifa 13 they released all 11 Tory players in packs directly after the forwards. Would they not do the same for Fifa 14?

  24. i have 800k in coins. if i spend all of it on packs do you think i have a strong possibility of getting any toty player?

  25. Hi,

    Lucky me, got a toty Ramos!
    When should i sell him? He’s now selling for around the 610k, will his price be higher in a few days?

  26. Hi when u say all the TOTY players will be out on the 25-26th weekend will their be TOTY out during the time between the 18-19th weekend and the 25-26th weekend

    • Harry: it is not official. We believe that all the TOTY players may be out on the 25-26th weekend. But it not guaranteed. According to what happened last year, they will be available on that weekend but not on the week days between the two weekends.

  27. Ronaldo is going for between 1.7 and 1.8 mil on Xbox right now, if you had to guess, what do you think his price will drop to this weekend when the TOTY forwards are released and the entire team? I have around 1.5’mil and really want him

  28. after toty cards stop being released i.e after 26th, the supply would be low. Is it a good idea to buy a toty for about 700k (ramos) and selling later. Is his price likely to rise by a lot in say april when there are few toty cards on the market?

  29. After all the Toty players r released r they still possible to get in normal packs?? or is it only now when they get released???

  30. I have 300k and want to build an expensive team. if I build an expensive team now will they drop in price or are they gonna get higher

  31. Hi Rodrigo
    I got Normal Ronaldo in a pack yesterday
    So should I sell him now or after Toty ?
    Now his price is around 1.4 m on ios

  32. is there only one 100k pack for each person?
    and will all the toty only be available this weekend, or next weekend as well?

  33. 100k packs are currently available and i bought loads of players that are usually worth 4000-5000coins for 650-1000coins and now they’re worth only 850-1000… will their prices go up at all when toty has passed?

  34. Hi Rodrigo,

    As I understood from all the above comments and replies,

    All the 11 TOTY players are now available till today in packs until 6 pm (GMT time) ,So the best chance to get any TOTY player in pack is today before 6 pm GMT time?

    My 9 year old son insisting to buy him a pack ( I have 600k coin now)
    Kindly I have 2 questions :

    What would be the best pack to buy with the best chance to get one of the TOTY players

    There is 3 options now:

    100k pack (Jumbo rare players pack)
    35k pack (Mega)
    15k pack (gold)


    If i have FIFA points ..could it be transferred to coins?

    Thanking you in advance.

  35. Hi Rodrigo,
    I have 4 questions:
    1) I baught a bunch of packs with fifa points while the happy hours where on. I didnt get any toty informs but I got valuable players like Suarez, Vidic, Willian, Oscar etc. Should I sell them now, or should I wait a bit for about a week or so?
    2) In the same packs I also got a bunch of discard players.Now that toty are no longer available will the price rise for at leat 1k each?
    3) I also tried to invest on some cheap players that I thought their prices would rise after the market crash. For example I mananged to get Cavani for 5k. His price has risen a bit but not that much as I first thought, should I wait for another week or should I sell now?
    4) In one of the packs I got inform Adrian from West Ham, should I sell him now or wait for a week untill the market has recovered completly?
    Thanks for your time.

    • Hi.
      1) Wait a bit more.
      2) Discard players ? What is that ? Players that have no commercial value ? Discard prices never change.
      3) Nobody can be sure but I think it will raise a bit more, yes.
      4) Wait one week if possible.

      • Hi Rodrigo, thanks a lot for your help… When I meant discard players I meant players which werent very usefull (75-81 rated players in bad leages or with bad attributes). My mistake as I often play fut in spanish and I didnt realise that discarding players was quickselling them, so nevermind and thank a lot for all of your help with this specific topic and many other topics such as the formation guide etc. On the other hand I’m following your advice and are selling everything this monday, hoping to get to about 250k to 300k. Because of this I started researching trading tips etc and got a bit confused. When I started reading about the peak hours I couldnt figure out at what time I should sell and at what time I should buy. I know that the peak hour takes place from 3:30 pm to 12:00 am (uk time) yet I dont know if I should sell inside this lapse of time or buy. So basically I have 2 questions:
        1) The peak time is a wide lapse of time between 3:30 pm and 12:00 am uk time, so 5:30 pm is part of the peak hour or am I wrong? Isn’t any peak hour supposed to be shorter?
        2) Should I sell my players inside the peak time and buy outside of it, or should I buy inside the peak time and sell outside of it? Ive read both versions one saying that selling inside the peak time is better as there are more buyers and the other version saying that buying inside the peak time is better as there are more sellers.

  36. Hey, I bought an in form Lichtsteiner today for 14k. Are the prices of informs like him going to go down or up in the next few days/weeks? Should I keep him and sell later or opposite?

  37. Hi, does team rating have any affect on the game is it better to be higher or lower or basic. As I’ve heard that the team has a handicap when your team rating is so high

  38. Help i don’t know what to do. I bought a toty ibra a few weeks ago for 4.830.000 and played with it but know his price is rapidly dropping (because of the tots coming up?) and i don’t know if i should sell him for maybe a loss of 300k or wait until his price rises again.

  39. Is it true that if you get a regular player in a pack who is in the Toty/tots you get the Toty/tots one for free

    • Hi.
      We will try to clarify this for you.
      When you open a pack you have a % of chances to get a player X. That percentage is always the same. No matter if he was IF or not. The same is to say, when a player gets a TOTS card (or TOTY or TOTW) his regular card is not released during that period, usually a week. So, if you get a regular player that is in the TOTS, you should contact the EA Support to be sure that they will transform it in a TOTS.

  40. Hi. I was wondering if you know the release dates for the upcoming TOTY (not the one that was released on 13th of January 2014 but the next one ?)

  41. Hey Rodrigo, just wondering will the TOTY cards be available again towards the end of Fifa 14? I believe they have in previous FIFAs will they do it again?

  42. Rodrigo I have a question for you. I have 2.4 million coins. It is enough to buy toty players. I want them to invest. What is better buying one very expensive with all the money I have like Neuer or buy two totys like luiz and kroos or two silvas, etc. Also maybe there are other choices like buying players that are going to get an upgrade like sif alexis or maybe the fif alexis, sif de gea, etc So what do you recommend I need to know because the prices on monday are going to be really cheap.

    toty Kroos luiz
    2 toty silvas
    3 SIF alexis
    2 If alexis
    5 Sif de gea
    Or another good player that I can invest in.

  43. Hi Rodrigo. I got a TOTY Neuer. What happens to the prices of TOTY cards? Should I sell him now, or wait for its price to rise?
