Fifa 11 Ultimate team, ps3: Trading contracts, formation cards, and position cards (with photo's)
When discussing how to make a profit on Fifa Ultimate team the first thing that you probably think of is trading players, and quite rightly so. There is however other ways of making coins from trading that doesn't involve players. In this hub i will list the most popular contract, formation and position cards so that you (if you want or feel the need to) can refer to this hub when buying these particular items. These prices are based on the PS3 version of the game.
These are what prices i can normally get for my contract (player) cards.
GOLD 90 - 450/600 coins
GOLD 80 - 300/400 coins
SILVER 70 - 400/500 coins
SILVER 65 - 250/300 coins
BRONZE 60 - 200/300 coins
BRONZE 50 - 150/200 coins
The manager contracts generally sell for just a little
bit less than the player cards so i tend to knock about 50 coins off the above prices for those, although the Bronze 50 cards normally shift at the same price
as they are cheap anyway so i leave them as they are.
The formation cards can be very significant in Ultimate team. They are there to improve the chemistry of your team by applying them to your players. Some however cost more than others, and this is where the profit for bargain hunters like ourselves comes in. These are the most popular cards and a rough guide to what they sell for:
41212 - Around 10k
433 - 5/7k
442 - 4/6k
The above are the top 5 most popular formation cards if my personal experiences are anything to go by, but please bare in my mind that these are prices that I personally have seen them go for. I make no guarantees as the market is so unpredictable. They could go for much more on any given day or the price could plummet, it's just the way it is. The rest of the formation cards can sell but don't seem to sell for as much or as regular as the above. The best of the rest seem to be the 4231 and 4312 cards that i've seen sell for around 1k. It all depends however on who's lurking at the time and how badly they want a particular card i suppose. If someone wants a 5221 card desperately then who knows how much they will pay for one.
A few examples
Changing a player's position in ultimate team is something that probably a lot of us have done (i know i have) Whether it's changing Essien from a CM to a CDM or Lennon from a RW to a RM they can be extremely helpful when assembling your squad. As with every other card though some are more popular than others. Here are what seem to be the most popular cards from my experience.
Be careful not to get this the other way around as a LB-LWB card doesn't sell for anywhere near this one but it's easy to get them mixed up when in a rush. These seem to be going for between 3.5 and 5k at the time of typing.
These also sell really well but as above the other way around (CM-CDM) doesn't. It suprises me that you can pick CM-CDM or CM-CAM up so easily given the massive popularity of the 41212 card but i have been able to on many occassions. A rough price that i can give you at the moment is between 3 and 5k
Also a very popluar card is the CF-ST one. It means the likes of Aguero or Van Persie can fit into your 41212 or 433 formation with ease. There doesn't seem a huge demand for CF's from buyers in Ultimate team (in my opinion). I'd say it's quite reasonable to expect 4k when selling one of these cards.
Another hugely popular card is the winger to wide midfielder card. This card would allow the likes of messi and ronaldo to play in a 442 or again the most popular 41212.I have seen these go for between 2.5/3k on a regular basis.
So they seem to be the big hitters when it comes to position cards. Another one that seems to have a bit of value to it is CF-CAM which i've seen fetch between 1 and 2k before, but not as regular as the ones above. Again, i must stress that these prices are based on what i'm seeing at the time of writing this hub so please have a check before you buy or sell.
