IPO's (Stop bitching...lifes to short)



  • Time for a cuppa and re-evaluate my port, got caught up in serious Fomo with Almada and Ihatteran 🤦🏻‍♂️



  • @Indexical
    totally agree, i'm the first to knock anyone complaining about late IPD payouts



  • @gball1975 said in IPO's (Stop bitching...lifes to short):

    Morning all,

    So …..
    IPO's come out on an advertised time slot … everyone bitches about bots and pricing and all that.
    IPO's come out at 5am (not an advertised time slot) … everyone botches about not knowing about it and waking up, looking and wondering "what the hells going on".

    Personally, I have never had any real success on IPO's like others have because I wasn't quick enough or the price has literally gone through the roof. So I wasn't bothered about jumping on them straight away anyway. Once the dust settles in a day or 2, I can revaluate and decide whether to jump on them from there once all the hype is done and the IS is finished.

    It's seems all the people bitching are the ones that have missed out and they are simply bitter. Some of the comments are crazy; "FI are creating us like shit", "ruined my whole day", "FI are stitching us up", "FI are being underhanded" .

    Really guys, come on...life is to short. Think of it logically, if an IPO is such amazing potential, they will still increase after the initial 48hr drop which is inevitable. Also, there have been some big drops on 'established' players already on the index which is an opportunity for jumping on prior to internationals / League Cup / CL / EL.

    There is a lot of bitter people out there and it is simply because you've missed out.

    Personally I'm more concerned about my existing portfolio and topping up / taking advantage on some drops on established players.

    No offense to anybody but lets move on and make some monies.
    & well done to anyone who did get on early enough.

    Love it. Spot on!



  • Well said @gball1975

  • @speedloafer They are the most profitable players on here for a very 'very' short window, but probably not long term (depending on your strategy). I have never lost money on IPOs ('fake' price gets hiked to quickly) as I have never brought within the first 48 hours (my own choice but hey...it works).
    All I am saying is the bitching is pretty pathetic because people aren't quick enough. People complain about IPO's no matter what time of day they come out... I think its crazy how quickly they go up but I don't bitch about it all morning like some people still are.

    At the end of the day we are all here to make money, some are quicker at it than others, time to move on.

    This morning I woke up breathing again with my fiancée lying next to me, so as far as I am concerned...I had a bloody good start to my day.



  • @gball1975 would she say the same thing though? ;)



  • @ChazFI123 HAHA... She'd better, I bloody hope so at least!!!



  • @gball1975 its not that people are not quick enough its that they were released at 1am with no warning which was a complete change form the norm. I just want the same opportunity for all of us to buy them. Not announcing the time and releasing just after midnight is underhanded and sneaky imo and serves nobody except the bots.

    FI's tagline is "make Money from your football knowledge" not make money from second guessing FI

    Was she still breathing?

    If not @gball1975 isnt quite the reasonable, happy go lucky, diplomat he’s portraying himself as.



  • I'd just like to post these two quotes from the Game Rules section of the website :-

    "We may introduce new footballers into the Top 200, which is referred to as an Initial Player Offering (IPO). These IPOs will be published at a price at our discretion on The Football Index News Blog at 12:00pm (London time) the day before, but specific timing of the IPO will not be announced"

    "We may introduce new footballers into the Squad Players, which is referred to as an Initial Player Offering (IPO). These IPOs will be published at a price at our discretion on The Football Index News Blog at 12:00pm (London time) the day before, but specific timing of the IPO will not be announced"

    Following on from our chat yesterday @Dan-The-Man, here's another change people may not be aware of. I certainly wasn't.

    Going to sit down and spend a good 10 minutes giving the entire rules section a read tonight. See what else we've apparently all missed.

    EDIT @Misto maybe worth a check on the "All Things Football Index" thread to see if your IPO section matches bud (when you have a spare 5 minutes of course - I know you're a busy boy atm)



  • @speedloafer … totally disagree. How is it underhanded? And anyone second guessing should bet on flipping a coin. People who brought players would / should have done there research. There was even a thread about an IPO coming out prior and as they are meant to be a big prospect, that person didn't second guess did they? they researched the player and passed on the info for those who may not have known about him.
    People have 'made money on their football knowledge' … or should people make money simply by being lucky and flipping within a 24 hour period?
    Either way...lets put a line under it.

    But before we finish...I have a solid tip for you....



  • @Advinculas-Index Oh yes indeed. :-)



  • @Timothee-Atouba HAHA...all was good I promise.



  • @gball1975 underhanded because they changed the time from the norm with no indication. Not even a "hey we changed the t&c to IPOs you better read them", not even a "hey we changed the t&c". They also sat here and watched all those sales yesterday (as people freed up funds) collecting their 2% knowing that most of those wont even be awake to buy the IPO Underhanded imo.

    Also flipping over a 24 hour period is still profit, whats wrong with that? When Slimani signed for Monaco I saw he is in their starting lineup for the first game and i jumped on at 38p he scores and his price rises am I not allowed to sell him? Is that using my football knowledge to make money?



  • @speedloafer absolutely disgusting and immoral that trade. Some people were at work when those starting lineups were released so they didnt get a fair chance to complete the same trade as you. They should suspend the markets until such time as every user is available



  • @EThomas9 fortunately the game didnt secretly kick off at 1am and I was awake at the normal time you mean.



  • Sound like someone’s got a case of “The Monday’s” even though it’s Tuesday

    Why don’t you run yourself a bubble bath ,pour yourself a glass of bubbly and throw on some Kenny G. That will calm you down👍



  • @speedloafer … now I didn't say flipping is not allowed or wrong as we all do it.

    All I am saying is those who are bitching should 'stop bitching' about the IPO's.
    Where does it state the IPO's are released at a certain time?

    Game Rules section of the website :-

    "We may introduce new footballers into the Top 200, which is referred to as an Initial Player Offering (IPO). These IPOs will be published at a price at our discretion on The Football Index News Blog at 12:00pm (London time) the day before, but specific timing of the IPO will not be announced"

    "We may introduce new footballers into the Squad Players, which is referred to as an Initial Player Offering (IPO). These IPOs will be published at a price at our discretion on The Football Index News Blog at 12:00pm (London time) the day before, but specific timing of the IPO will not be announced"

    Basically those people have 'assumed'.... you should never assume anything EVER.

    Now do you want this 'solid tip' or not ???
