So it turns out the claims of no price ranges are not entirely accurate either. Basically there is no direct selling in FIFA Mobile, although the game gives the appearance that there is. Any listing you buy is from EA (apparently Messi and CR7 were already available for purchase in quantity at launch). If you list an item it will be put on one of multiple servers and if it does not meet minimum thresholds EA will either autobuy it from you (so no sniping) or the high coin listing will not actually be visible to anyone (so no transfer of coins or trade deals like we can do in 16). So their claim that the price ranges are gone are more lies. In reality the FIFA Mobile market will be less functional than ever. Sure this will get rid of coin sellers but it will also get rid of any deals between players or the ability to profit from trading activitiies. I realize this is intentional in the hopes that people will buy points but why not just be honest about it. Oh wait, honesty and integrity is not on of EA's strong suits.
This is also exactly how the market functioned in Sim City Build-It which I played briefly. It was sort of a market but it became pretty obvious it was heavily manipulated so you could not actually play the market to get money or find deals. EA would also autobuy your item if it did not sell in a certain timeframe which was kind of nice as certain items had way too much supply like all of the Vu related items.

Noticed the thing about the transfermarket also. Can we get a statement from EA about that?
While I was never against any changes, adding fake market and energy bar is a no-go for me.
@prinzkeksdose15 - This should explain more - https://www.easports.com/fifa/fifa-mobile/news/2016/fifa-mobile-my-team
Specifically - "The Market in FIFA Mobile works slightly different from previous games. While you can still buy and sell items and bid against other players for items, players are not buying and selling directly from each other. The game acts as an intermediary on all transactions. This ensures a level playing field and creates a fairer and fun marketplace for everyone."

I played enough time on new game to give any opinion...the game is more bad than we imagined its just repetitive..no actual logic or thinking ...
cant entirely control players...balls come up randomly during attack play its not a build up...it just appears any where and u can pass to a player near box and score...the engine dont look like an update to 15....plans r a joke ...coins r easy to come by..seasons r more boring as they r offline play...
i would just uninstall it now..I dont like it in any way....i played the game so no1 can now say u cant judge without playing....hope this new game gets discontinued soon ...
