From what I can gather, you can pick a star player from the start of a UT career.
Obviously people are going to be picking Messi and Ronaldo, so that means having them on the market for stupid money wont happen as there will be lots of them around.
Sure price fixing will be there when more players (TOTW etc) are added, but from the start everyone will have an even playing ground and not just cause some guys got lucky opening packs with mothers credit card.
I saw that at the beginning, but it has to be deeper than that. Who is going to pick a goalie who will likely only be worth 20k at most in a month over Messi? Plus, it would kill off alot of the $ EA makes off this. Maybe it will give you a star player from that league, or just a simple gold player.
