Level playing field

EA Sports disclosed that while the Price Ranges for every FUT item will differ from the current prices, their relative value to other player items on the Transfer Market will remain consistent to ensure a level playing field for gamers.

The developer also said that all Price Ranges will be universal across all gaming platforms. Once a player puts an item on the Transfer Market, the range at which it can be sold will appear. This price range will be set by the FIFA team based on trends of previous Transfer Market prices.

Open bid transfers shall become unavailable after Price Ranges have been activated. So if a player wants to list an item on the Transfer Market, he has to set a ‘Buy It Now’ price within the Price Range.

The Price Ranges for each FUT item will be set wide enough for gamers. The feature for certain players may also be adjusted in the future as EA continues to improve it. Meanwhile, new ‘in-form’ FUT player items will receive a Price Range upon its release.

While changes on the Price Ranges are being effected, the Transfer Market will remain inaccessible from the web and companion apps, explained EA Sports.
