Towards the end of August, EA laid out their 3 step process for dealing with coin buyers/promoters and their no nonsense, no second chances, single EA account ban for coin farmers and sellers. The full post is here. After that announcement, it all went quiet and looked like nothing had changed, but according to EA it has.
I believe there are already a bunch of players has been banned for coins buying, and we are a little bit afraid to buy coins these days. What really frustrated is, I already spend hundreds of bucks for FIFA points, but got literally “nothing” from those gold packs.I know buying coins makes my account take risks, but those bad pulled just made me exhausted, I decide to buy some FIFA 15 coins, since EA gave me shits with their packs. I don’t want be banned for this, so I did a little bit research. Up to now, I already bought around 2 millions coins, and not even receive a warning. So, I want share my personal anti-banned skills/experience with you guys.
First, choose the right card to trade. We all know EA will suspect those deals with ridiculous price, like you sold a shit bronze card for millions of coins. I found more than 80% coins buyer was banned by such case. So, I only use rare gold cards to finish my coins buying. But not all rare gold cards are safe to trade with, because more than 60% rare gold cards only worth 1000 coins or less. Choose those really worthy cards with decent price in your coins buying, one-tenth of the coins you want to buy is best, and ask those coins sellers compensate your lose at the card itself. For example, you want buy 500k coins, contact with the coins seller first, explain them the way you want trade with. Then, you should list a player who has around 50k regular price for 50k-60k minimum price, and for 550k BIN price, wait the coin seller finish the deal.
Second, choose the right time to trade. The price of players will fluctuate in a huge range at some exact time, the chaotic market would be the greatest camouflage for you to buy coins. First “chaotic time” is weekends, especially the time when league just end. At this time, some players’ price, who did really good job in real life, would rose to a ridiculous number.Another safe time to buy coins is the time when TOTW released. It is very difficult to EA to determine weather a trading is coins buying or not at such exact time.
Third, never put all your eggs in one basket. If you want buy coins more than 1 million, I suggest you ask the coin seller afford the coins through at least 3 players. This method can minimize the risk you might take during coin trading significantly, since you only get comparative reasonable coins from one player. Ask coin seller afford coins from different accounts is another effective way to lower your risk.
