A coin making guide for FIFA 16 Ultimate Team
FIFA 16 coins are a virtual money in FUT with which you can trade items and buy packs. In this article, we are going to review some coin making methods in FIFA 16. With this tutorial you will learn how to earn a lot of coins in a simple way and without spending real money. There are many options to earn coins fast in FIFA 16 Ultimate Team. Here we go through some of those tips:
- Playing FUT Matches
- Trading at Transfer Market
- Redeeming Items from EA Catalogue
- Receiving Free Gifts
Playing FUT Matches
By playing and completing any type of FIFA Ultimate Team matches you will receive some amount of coins. Do not leave a game even when you know you are going to lose it, even a match loss gives you some amount of FIFA coins. You can see how many coins you have earned with details in the Match Awards list after finishing a match.
Take note that you will earn coins for goals you score, corner kicks, match possession percentage, shots on target, clean sheets, man of the match winner, successful tackles and pass accuracy percentage. But, offsides, goals against, fouls and cards also will cause you coins reduction.
Play Single Player (offline) season and tournaments. By finishing tournaments and seasons you will earn coin awards – no matter if you are eliminated, relegated, held in the current season or promoted. If you’re not able to beat the AI, set your difficulty level to low (amateur, semi-pro etc.). However in higher divisions and tournaments you will have to play in higher levels of difficulties, such as World Class or Legendary.
Challenging the Team of the Week (TOTW) is another way to receive some FIFA coins. If you win against an active TOTW match, you will receive from 150 to 1000 coins (depending on the match difficulty you choose).
Here is a trick to take the challenge against the Team of the Week: Start playing with the highest level of difficulty which is the “Ultimate”. If you cannot beat it, then go down (try Legendary), if you are not able to beat them, go for Professional and so on. This will let you earn coins until you complete the Team of the Week challenge. You should go from the highest to the lowest.
Trading Cards and Items
Trading players is also a good way to earn coins in FIFA Ultimate Team. The simplest way to do so is to buy a player card and sell it for a higher price. Keep in mind that EA is taking a 5% taxation from each selling transaction, so once an item is sold on the Transfer Market, five percent of it goes to EA. That means, to profit from a transaction, your benefit should be more than 5%, otherwise you will lose coins.
Besides trading players, trading other cards and items are also useful to make virtual money (coins). Manager cards are also good to trade with. Sometimes, you can find some manager cards with a low Buy Now price.
The One Hour Transfer Window
Usually, people put their items on the Transfer Market for one hour as the minimum auction time is an hour. This opportunity allows you to get many players and other items for a cheaper price. The thing you need to do is to go to the Transfer Market and check item’s Remaining Time. Go to the cards that have 59 minutes left – To do so, you need to scroll the page a lot – So, be patient. Then see the good players/items with low Buy Now price, then buy them and re-sell them for higher prices.
Buy to Quick Sell
Some cheap players or items that you can find on the Transfer Market are actually offered at a cheaper price than their Quick Sell values. For example, players with 78 overall ratings can be quick sold for 312 coins. So, if you see a 78 player card on the market with 300 coins bid price or even below, buy it immediately, because by quick selling them you can still earn money fast.
Redeeming Coin Making Items from the Catalogue
In EA SPORTS FC Catalogue you can get FUT Coin Reward Boosts which will add on additional FUT coins for your next match awards. After buying FUT Coin Reward Boosts by spending FCC, it will automatically add coins to your rewards after a certain number of your following matches – the number of matches depends on the boost item you buy.
To do so, go to the Catalogue window, then to Ultimate Team tab. There you will see your unlocked items, depending on your FCC (Football Club Credits) and the level you have reached. Look for the “FUT Coin Reward Boosts”. Once you move over the item, it shows the details on the left hand side window, which says how many FUT coins you will get for how many matches and how many FCC you need to spend on that item. BTW, your FCC number is visible on the top right of your screen – at Notification panel.
There are also some UT tradeable items at Football Club > Catalogue > Gameplay section, they are items such as Ball and Kit Bundles. Yes, you are able to trade these items on FUT Transfer Market once they are redeemed.
