TEAM OF THE YEAR NOMINEES
What are TOTY Nominees?
These are players who are nominated to potentially make it into the TOTY Squad.
Those that are nominated receive a +1 upgrade above their base card.
How does this affect the market?
As the TOTY Nominee card is +1 this causes specials to drop in price because they are a new card with a dynamic which provides that TOTY feeling.
Here are some examples of this happening in Fifa 20.
Lewandowski Nominee card came onto the market at 66k then dropped to 55k as per the graph below.
Below is Lewandowski IF graph that shows that since the release of his TOTY Nominee card it dropped in value.
Dec 13th which is when the Nominee card came onto the market this IF was 82k and dropped to 66k.
Here is another example of using KDB. His TOTY Nominee card came onto the market at 307k and lowest was on Wednesday at 250k.
The below graph is of his 92 rated IF went from 318k on the 13th December to 256k.
Here is an example of a player that was NOT a TOTY Nominee however their special was affected. See below graph for Nainngolan 86 IF in Fifa 20.
To avoid the chance of losing coins it is best to ensure that you do not have any expensive cards that could be affected from the release of the TOTY Nominees.
As you can see it did affect specials regardless whether they had a TOTY Nominee card in packs or not.
