Icon Swap players in FIFA icons
Fifa Coins

The principle of icon swaps is that every FIFA Ultimate Team player can get icons or icon packs. You don't have to put any money into many FIFA Points or the like to play with good Icon players. And also there will be no need to buy FIFA Coins to have icon players in your team.

By completing various tasks, you can earn icon swap players in the seasonal tasks. You collect these until you have the required number for your desired icon.

Since April 24, 2020, the second tasks for the current icon swap selection have been available. The tasks to be completed are very varied. Usually you also meet opponents at Division Rivals who also want to complete these tasks.

There are two different areas in which these tasks can be completed.

However, if you are looking for a midfield icon, Emmanuel Petit is the best choice. You can earn it for 19 icon swap players. Petit is an extremely strong all-rounder. It is an enrichment for every club.

However, if you are looking for an offensive icon card, there are only two options that you should draw. The first is Kenny Dalglish Mid-Icon, for which you have to swap 16 icon swap players. The second option is Garrincha for 21 swap players. Kenny Dalglish is a central offensive icon player and is known for his dribbling and final strength. Garrincha, on the other hand, is more of a winger who can convince with his dribbling and speed.

Making Many FIFA Coins in FIFA 20
Fifa Coins

Our trading guide tells you how to gain the most difficult FIFA 20 coins in FIFA 20. This means that you're a FIFA player. You started an online game and saw the opposing team. The team is full of icons and players like, Messi, Ronaldo or Neymar - as special cards. Beating the exclusively high offence of these opponents is important. In the game you notice that the gamer is not playing that well. The opposite is often the case. You counter the opponent, you have more possession of the ball and a lot more chances to score. The ball will not go into the goal. Sometimes you hit the post, the other time the opposing icon keeper owns uncatchable balls and last but not least, the Prime Icon Moments Ferdinand "automatically" grabs the shot and prevents an actually safe goal. In return, it comes as so important. 2-3 One Touch Passes in the top on Ronaldo or Messi and the bell rings. Differentiate from impossible angles just hit the goal. In such situations, you no longer understand the world. At the same time, however, you doubt your team and think about how it would work if you yourself had a team of top players.

FIFA has become a lottery in recent years. More and more FIFA players spend money in FIFA points to draw packs to make FIFA coins. Another one is buying FIFA coins. Many other players who do not want to invest real money then think that they are at a disadvantage. Some ask themselves whether there is a way to build a dream team in FIFA without spending real money. Thank God there are many different ways!

 

Everyone can make FIFA coins!

The goal of any FUT player should be to continuously improve their team. This makes it possible to play and play more fun with a strong team. However, even if many coins are paid to buy the best top players for themselves.

There are too many trading methods that can be used to generate a considerable amount and coins without large funds and without previous knowledge. In order to be your first contact and to show that it is a good one and that all trading methods are easy to implement, I will show you some of them:

 

Make FIFA coins using the 0 method

A very important and easy FIFA trading method. This is where you buy popular 84 players (top 5 leagues and popular nations) and then place them on the transfer market for 7,000 starting price and 10,000 buy now price (BIN) for 1 hour. The sense is as follows: These players have a minimum starting price of 700. Many will not look up the sale price when selling and put the player on the market for 700 - 10,000 to bid. With the additional 0 you often do not see the difference and offer the player 7,000 instead of 700. 84's and popular 83's are particularly good here, as they are used for reading SBCs. Currently at TOTS time, we will be able to wait for new new SBCs in which 83s - 85s with higher highs will be more likely. For this reason, it makes sense to feel in demand with approaches and to put them on the market every hour for 7,000 - 10,000. For this method, you can choose all cards from the top 5 leagues.

As with any FUT trading method, gold is also used here: patience is the key to success. Just give it a try and you will see why this method is one of the most popular, especially at the beginning and with little start-up capital.

FUT trading with the 84+ method

I have a good friend who uses this FUT trading method and makes several millions with it alone. And when it comes to using a single player, you can find out which player it is and how this method works in this section.

The 84 and 85 method can be the whole FUT year because players with an 84 or 85 rating are the most likely to become SBCs. Since SBCs are offered all year round, these cards are also seen all year round.

This FIFA trading method is about buying popular 84 and 85 players, if they are “cheap” and selling them, they will increase in price. If you know what exactly the “cheap” and “expensive” fees are, you should include more.

During the course of the FUT year, many SBCs (Flashback, POTM, Guaranteed TDW or special events) appear regularly, which usually require 84 and 85 team ratings.

After the release of these SBCs, popular 84s and 85s almost always rise significantly in price. Depending on how popular the SBC reward is, the cards required will increase accordingly. Basically, you should buy the players if no SBC is currently offered. Since the SBCs come regularly but also expire, you have to shop in phases when it is "quiet". Reward days or pack offers during events are the best times to buy the players as cheaply as possible. Ideally, you even bid the players to get them even cheaper than buy it now price.

Now let me explain what I mean by popular players. Popular players are those who can be linked very well in SBCs. This includes the players from the top 5 leagues. Another criterion is the nation of the player. Popular, easy-to-link nations are England, Italy, Germany, Brazil, France, Spain, Argentina, Netherlands and Portugal.

It is also advantageous to take players from the top clubs of the top 5 leagues, because they increase in reality due to their popularity.

From my experience, I can say that goalkeepers barely rise and remain largely stable in price. The exception is Neto from FC Barcelona. Because of its nation and high rating (85) it is very popular and used in many SBC teams. So much for theory. Let's take a look at what it looks like in practice:

A friend of mine noticed very quickly that Carvajal is increasing the most from Real Madrid to SBCs, which (among other things) require an 85 team rating. Carvajal fulfills all the requirements that we mentioned earlier. He plays in the La Liga, is Spanish and plays for a top club. It is one of the most popular cards in SBCs. Especially since he is the only RV with this rating.

So my colleague does nothing but fill his club with Carvajals as soon as it is available for 10k and cheaper. By "make club full" I mean, if possible, the complete transfer list (100 places) and the complete watch list. You do not have to fill the entire club with one player with this trading method, otherwise you are limited with other methods. This was just one example of how my colleague does it. He has little time to trade and is therefore fully focused on this type and on this player. Success proves him right!

As you can see, there are always several options on how to proceed with a method. Of course, it also works if you buy fewer players. Of course, I've done this method very often with Carvajal. Its price rises to 25 + k according to popular SBCs. When Carvajal was available on the market at a "quieter" time without interesting SBCs for 9k, I decided to invest 500k in it to see what would happen when the next good SBC came.

So I bought 50 Carvajals and waited about a week for a new SBC. Of course, this was associated with a certain risk, because you never know exactly when the next attractive SBC is coming. There were also 50 places on the transfer list.

When a very attractive Flashback SBC came after a short time, I knew that it was worth the wait and the risk. Hazard Flashback was the SBC player and of course 85 cards were needed. Carvajal was perfect for this, especially since he is Spanish and also plays for Real Madrid. Carvajal quickly reached a price of just under 20k.

Since Hazard is a very popular player and also has extremely good values, many FUT players have done this SBC. So the investment had paid off in full. All Carvajal cards could easily be sold at a price of 18-20k. We remember the purchase price of 9k. The profit per card was therefore just under 10k. The same process was already worth gold in FIFA 19, as the Miranda example shows. At that time still in Serie A, with good nationality on the left, plus IV. With interesting SBCs, a price increase of 6-7 k to its normal price (9k) was not uncommon. Here, the normal price was almost doubled.

(Carvajal's price history. Good to see the constant ups and downs - peak in late March / early April when the Mid Icon SBC was released)

If, as in my case, you invested around 500k in Miranda, you would quickly reach over a million. Of course, not everyone has 500k to invest in, but that's not the point. Any investment at the recommended price (8-9k) would be profitable. And making profit is ultimately the key.

Now I would like to show you which 84 and 85 players are most worthwhile in FIFA 20 and which purchase prices can be described as "cheap". All 84s are considered to be the "cheaper" price if they cost less than 4k. For the 85s, a good guideline is usually below 9k. With the exceptions, I wrote the price behind it. Depending on the market situation, players can either be offered or purchased for immediate purchase. It's up to everyone.

(Example of the 85 method, based on Icardi)

 

Premiere League

The 84 and 85 method is definitely suitable for Premier League players. Since the POTM PL SBC comes every month, the PL players are used more and more. Sokratis is one of the best teams in the 84 series because he is the only central defender.

 

Series A

In series A there is a large selection of 84 and 85 cards in FIFA 20. You can find cheap players with advantageous nations for practically every position.

 

Ligue 1

In FIFA 20, Ligue 1 only offers a limited selection of 84 and 85 series. The 86s and 87s are more interesting here. Verratti, Marquinhos, Di Maria and Keylor Navas are among the cheapest players with this rating. In addition, everyone plays for PSG, which quickly brings high chemistry. A chemistry of 80 is now required for many SBCs. It is easier to achieve high chemistry with the players mentioned.

 

La Liga

The La Liga offers a very large selection of 85 cards this year. As mentioned earlier, Carvajal is an extremely popular card for SBCs in this area. But players like Marcelo, Aspas or Koke also have potential for good price increases. In the area of ​​the 84s, Felipe from Atletico Madrid is the most popular player. Because of its nationality and position, is always an interesting option. Since FIFA 20 there is also a monthly POTM SBC for La Liga. This is also a positive factor for potential price jumps.

 

Bundesliga

The Bundesliga is also very popular because a POTM SBC comes here every month. There are many 84 cards, especially compared to last year. The investment in Niklas Süle was and is really worthwhile this year. Since he is the only IV in this rating region, regular price explosions can be expected here.

Now you should have an overview of which players can be used with this method and what the approximate "cheap" purchase price is. However, this is only a guide.

In the end you have to decide for yourself what profit you are satisfied with. Of course, you can also make a profit if the players are more expensive than I specified. It is just a point of reference that you can use as a guide. If you use this trading method for a certain time, you will get a feeling for how high which player usually rises and can therefore set your own purchase price.

 

Best time to sell players in FIFA

The best time to sell is of course after the publication of the respective SBC. At what price you sell the player is up to you. Some are happy with 2k win per player, others wait for the player to increase by 5k.

It is in our nature that we always want to take the maximum with us, but this is often the wrong decision when trading. I believe that a safe win should be preferred to risk.

In my experience, players reached the highest retail price approximately 2 hours after the SBC was released.

I make it so that immediately after the SBC is published I add my players with an 84 rating at the starting price of 7,000 and instant purchase of 10,000. As you can see below some of them are already going away for these prices. I usually sell the remaining players 2 hours later at the market price.

 

Successful FIFA trading requires patience

In addition to patience, the basic requirement for FUT trading is continuity. There will be phases when you will think about giving up because no sales will be made. It is precisely in these situations that you have to show patience and stay tuned!

There will inevitably be moments of success and these will push you to continue. The longer you deal with trading, the better you get.

Remember that you only have to invest a little time to learn these methods once at the beginning. The knowledge you have learned and applied will be retained forever afterwards. You will be able to use these trading methods in all future versions of FUT as they will not change.

I recommend you set a dream team as your goal, which you can work towards. This team is likely to include many expensive players. It will be difficult for you at first to imagine having such a team at some point. Set yourself small intermediate goals by first focusing on a player. Once you've bought the player, move on to the next one. And so you keep going until you have your dream team together.
