EA introduce price ranges For FIFA 15 Ultiamate Team starting today.
In an official announcement, EA Sports has confirmed price ranges for FUT items at Transfer Market: “We are introducing an important new feature to the FIFA Ultimate Team Transfer Market called Price Ranges.”
Here is the detail of this announcement given by EA:
Once this feature has been activated, all FUT items (players, in-forms, consumables, and club items) in FIFA Ultimate Team will have a Price Range that sets the highest and lowest Coin prices that each item can be sold on the Transfer Market.
These new features are designed to:
- Help FUT gamers understand the value of the players in their Club.
- Make high-rated players more attainable for all FUT gamers and ensure a level playing field.
- Further restrict illegitimate coin transfers on the Transfer Market.
Although the new FUT item Price Ranges will differ from current prices, their relative value to other player items on the Transfer Market will remain consistent in order to maintain a level playing field for everyone.
Here are some more important notes about Price Ranges:
- All Price Ranges will be universal across Xbox, PlayStation and PC.
- When you list an item on the Transfer Market, the range at which an item can be sold will appear. These price ranges will be set by the FIFA Team based on analysis of past Transfer Market prices.
- Open bid transfers will be unavailable after Price Ranges have been activated. In order to list an item on the Transfer Market, you will have to set a “Buy It Now” price within the Price Range.
- The Price Range for each FUT item will be set wide enough for you to still enjoy trading on the Transfer Market.
- The Price Range for certain players may be adjusted in the future as we work to improve this feature over time.
- New ‘in-form’ FUT player items will receive a Price Range upon release.
EA say that they believe the long-term benefits of this new change will make FUT more fun and fair for everyone.
“We know that this is a significant change to FUT, and so we want your feedback. We are confident that, in the long run, the FUT community as a whole will come to appreciate the balanced benefits that this new feature will bring to all FUT players, but it’s important you let us know what you think.” EA.
In conjunction with these changes, the Transfer Market will remain inaccessible from the Web and Companion Apps.
What do you think? Are these changes fair? Will EA be able to ban scams and FUT coins sellers/buyer?
