He is also the highest paid teenager in the football history in the Premier League and why should not he be paid? He’s really good with the ball in his feet.

What is FIFA Ultimate Team

Commonly called FUT or sometimes UT, FIFA Ultimate Team is a mode in FIFA where using any players from all the leagues, you build team to play offline and online. To win cups, you play in tournaments. Tournaments are always available as they are being set by EA. And during each month, new tournaments are being added with different entry criteria. Also, available are seasons where you start in Div 10, play in 10 divisions, and work your way up. There is no league table and you play with other people online randomly. To get promoted or win the division, all you have to do is reach a certain number of points in a certain number of games. You will be relegated to a lower division if you don’t reach the minimum points. Nonetheless, you can play as many seasons to your heart’s desire.

Ultimate Team Players

In the FIFA Ultimate Team game, all players are split into three categories. Gold players are those rated 75 to 99, Silver players rated 65-74, and Bronze players rated 0-65. Generally, the price reflects their popularity within the game and these rating reflect their ability in real life. Although certain requirements will have to be met by some competitions offline and online, you can still create a team consisting of a mixture of any of them.

Further on, each of these categories are sub-categorized into In Form, Rare, and Normal. Rare is more valuable and Normal is just a standard card. New versions of the players are created with increased better stats due to the Ultimate Team on FIFA able to recognize these. These new versions are called In Form players. During each week, they are made available inside packs. Usually when the team of the week players are available, EA will make an announcement. These are easy to recognize as they are quite glossy and have black backgrounds. So you can tell what they represent, bronze, silver or gold is streaked through the middle. If your card is of a normal version that doesn’t alter to the In Form version, that means that, in the market, there are both versions of the card – the normal ones, and the In Form ones.

Also, Team of the Year players, Team of the Season players, upgrades, and transferred players are being released by EA at certain points of the year. Therefore, compared to his normal card or even his In Form card, a Team of the Season player will have extremely better stats. Demand is determined through player prices. For example, Ronaldo, Messi and Ibrahomic are now over 1 million coins. Meaning, in order for you to be able to buy them, you need to play games to make FIFA coins, and try to buy and sell players to make FIFA coins. Alternatively, you can also buy packs and keep your fingers crossed that it will have amazing players in them. To get the top players in a pack, you usually have to be really extremely lucky. Also, with real money, you can buy packs on PlayStation and or buy FIFA points on Xbox.
