The Team of the Year phase is slowly coming to an end in FIFA 23 and is now being replaced by the Future Stars promo. Two very popular promos with sick cards. Unfortunately, there is a catch: The TOTY and best Future Stars cards are expensive! In order to afford such a card, you also need a lot of coins. Of course that's stupid, especially when the best strikers are even more expensive because of consoles...

Here you can find out everything you need to know about the transfer markets and why PC players are at a huge disadvantage

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team: The Huge Disadvantage Of PC Players

The PC has actually made great progress in the field of FIFA in recent years, and it is not for nothing that it enjoys some of the advantages of the next-gen consoles. However, there is one major downside: the PC transfer market! It is isolated. This probably results in fewer users and thus also offers on the transfer market than in comparison to consoles.

The PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series share a transfer market and therefore have more cards and cheaper prices. No wonder, players are priceless on PC when nobody actually pulls them...

Let's look at a few examples:


Higher Prices On PC Than Console

Of course, it is also clear that if you pull a card like Messi TOTY on the PC, it also brings in significantly more coins. However, the chance of getting such a card tradeable is as good as 0. So it has to be said that it's very unfair, and you might want to think about playing FIFA on another platform.

You can see that there are almost 3.7 million coins difference between the two platforms. I mean, nobody can afford a card for 6 million coins, but almost 10 million coins? Come on...

But meta gold cards are also a lot more expensive. A gold card from Mbappé is still at 1 million coins on PC, that's just insane! On the consoles, you can't really do anything (in terms of price) with the gold cards.
