FIFA 23’s transfer market has stalled after the creator accidentally sold bargain hero FUT cards

FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) packs, featuring some of the rarest cards in the game, were inadvertently sold at bargain prices by developer EA Sports.

Each pack is guaranteed to contain at least one Heroes Rare card, which usually sells for millions of FUT Coins on the in-game transfer market.

That’s because these cards have extra high ratings and can give your team a boost in FIFA 23’s most popular online mode.

According to a report by VGCAt 18:00 UK time, developer EA released a FUT Hero Pack for the price of 25,000 FUT Coins on the in-game store.

This is FIFA’s in-game currency with an approximate value of £6 ($6).

While the card you get in the pack is random, any potential Heroes players you can get are valued much higher.

For example, one of the available players, Yaya Touré, sold around 1.9 million FUT coins, approximately £450 ($500) before the sale.

Naturally, as soon as news of the deal broke on social media, players flocked to the game to snag a pack.

This means that more of these rare cards were released, which dramatically reduced the price of these hero cards.

Some players who were holding on to rare cards in hopes that their value would increase over time suddenly lost millions of FUT Coins in value from their cards overnight.

It only took EA about 25 minutes to correct their mistake. However, by that time, a lot of damage had already been done.

Cards that have lost value due to this bug will likely never regain their former value since they have become so common.

Players suspect that EA also tried to fix the bug by buying the cards flooding the transfer market itself.

Thousands of cards were purchased in bulk just moments after the packs were withdrawn from sale.

The bug seems to have been that the cards sold by EA were meant to be non-transferrable, meaning they cannot be sold on the in-game transfer market.

This reduces the chances of other cards falling in value as the card would be tied to a specific account.

However, as we now know, the cards were actually transferrable, causing players to lose hundreds of pounds of value from their decks.

EA has not yet released a statement on the matter.
