10 Things I Want to See in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team

FIFA 18 gained’t be launched until late September, but the beta will little question be obtainable a number of months prior to that and it’s subsequently time to begin wanting forward to the longer term and understanding what wants to be executed as we transfer in the direction of the release of EA’s subsequent soccer title.

The next is an inventory of 10 things that I personally would completely love to see included in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team:


In the intervening time, the rewards for profitable video games and divisions as properly for that matter are actually quite feeble. It takes a reasonably long time to construct up coins from enjoying matches, and presently it’ll set you back several video games value of match cash just to decide up a healing card.

Extra cash ought to be provided for matches, especially in case you win them, and in my opinion; the prize money also needs to be quite a bit higher for attaining glory inside the recreation. Proper now, for those who win Division 1, you get a mere 15,000 coins. Hold your place in the top division and you’ll get a fair less; 7,500, sufficient coins to purchase ONE premium gold pack. You do get automated qualification for the Weekend League in each of these instances as properly, and the rewards from doing nicely in which might be admittedly pretty good, but not everybody has sufficient time at the weekend to compete in 40 matches and reap the complete rewards that the Weekend League expertise probably has to supply.

I would love to see more match cash awarded for successfully finishing matches, and a more beneficiant offering of coins for doing properly in Divisions would make progression by means of the league system much more appealing. Perhaps you can get a 100okay pack for profitable Division 1 in addition to some kind of coin reward? Even when it was untradeable, no less than this would offer a bit extra incentive to work your means up the ladder and finally attempt to win Division 1.


Shifting on from that last point about receiving higher rewards from profitable issues; one other thing that would do with being addressed is the price of packs. In the event you’re enjoying matches to make cash, 7.5k is a good amount to save up for a Premium Gold Pack the place a Squad Fitness Card might be often probably the most beneficial card in there.

If match rewards have been better, then pack costs perhaps wouldn’t seem so steep, but right now; the worth of packs is just far an excessive amount of, which makes taking the FIFA Point route a way more interesting technique, as no less than that approach you’re not consuming into your hard earned cash. FIFA Factors are costly although; 12,000 FIFA Factors value about twice as a lot as the sport itself does in the primary place. £79.99 for those who’re in the UK, or £71.99 when you’ve got EA Access. This makes Premium Gold Packs a few quid each, or 90p every when you’re signed up for EA Entry.

Whether you’re paying with cash, or paying with FIFA Points, FIFA Ultimate Team packs are incredibly costly and in my opinion, the worth of them must be a lot lower.


In the mean time, Microsoft have an exclusive cope with EA and Legends are subsequently only obtainable on Xbox. Probably that exclusivity period is coming to an end although and the likes of Pele, Gullit and Okocha might properly be arriving in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team for PS4 customers as well as these on Xbox. Perhaps David Beckham will probably be introduced as a new legend for FIFA 18 as properly? I reside in hope.


On the time of scripting this, squad health cards are selling for about 1,000 coins each, yet if I seek for Gold fitness cards between 950 and 1,000 coins buy it now, I have to scroll by way of pages and pages of normal fitness playing cards before I come across the gadgets I’m truly in search of.

It’s an analogous type of concern with in-form player searches as nicely; you possibly can seek for a player’s special card within a sure worth range, but if that player has multiple in-form card, you’ll be able to’t slender that search down to merely search for the card that you simply’re in. You’ll be able to hit ‘Compare Price’ once you do find the cardboard you need, nevertheless it then displays EVERY card for sale on the transfer market, regardless of their listing worth. Oh, and if you need to find a particular stadium on the switch market? Good luck with that.

One other thing that’s barely irritating right now’s the shortage of a uncommon/non-rare filter on the switch market. This might be a useful addition to the sport and I for one would undoubtedly recognize the inclusion of such a filter.

I undoubtedly really feel that the search perform might do with some enhancements, and the identical goes for selling gadgets as nicely. Throughout the year, I have a tendency to decide up lots of upon lots of of contract playing cards and health playing cards. Sometimes I’ll have a filter out and eliminate them en-masse, but this can be quite a long-winded experience as you’ve gotten to go through and record up each merchandise individually. It will be fairly a nice time saving function in the event you might set your worth, then listing multiple gadgets at this worth level at the similar time.


Some individuals would really like to see the entire removing of fitness and contract playing cards, which is truthful enough, but if they’re here to keep; something that I’d undoubtedly like to see added to the sport for FIFA 18 is squad contract cards. When your group are wanting a bit drained, you’ll be able to fortunately apply a squad fitness card and restore the staff to their full effectiveness, but typically a number of players run out of contract on the similar time and it’s just a bit frustrating having to undergo and supply all of them recent contracts individually before you’ll be able to hop into your next recreation.

Squad contracts would offer one other unbelievable time saving function, and a smoother, extra hassle-free expertise is unquestionably something what we’re all finally striving for.


Presumably they took away the previous online tournaments to encourage extra individuals to become involved in the Weekend League, however personally I’d love to see the return of normal online tournaments. I’ve all the time been an enormous fan of making an attempt out totally different gamers inside the recreation, and in FIFA 16 I completely beloved enjoying the web bronze tournaments. Placing together a group of bronze beasts and going up towards different individuals looking for to get one of the best out of their bronze beauties.

Adam Armstrong scored so many objectives for me in online Ultimate Team tournaments final yr; he was probably the most medical finishers I ever used in the sport and all the time appeared to place the ball into the highest nook towards the opposition bronze keepers.

This yr though, bronze and silver tournaments solely exist for offline action, and who actually plays FIFA Ultimate Team offline? I don’t assume I’ve used any bronze gamers by any means this yr, probably not likely any silvers either, and the shortage of those kinds of tournaments has made me far much less adventurous in my group choices. I play most of my matches with a reasonably regular Premier League aspect, however additional incentive to play with extra bronze and silver gamers again would undoubtedly be much welcomed. Maybe Bronze and Silver drafts might grow to be a thing in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team? The entry charge might be lowered to mirror the totally different ranges of Draft and this could possibly be an fascinating new enlargement to the FUT Draft experience.


On Futhead you possibly can put together a Generations squad and use cards from any model of FIFA Ultimate Team. You possibly can have a bit of enjoyable constructing together teams that includes some of your favorite gamers past and present, and it might be absolutely sensible to see these generations playing cards introduced into play in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. Perhaps not in regular packs, but perhaps there could possibly be a brand new Generations FUT Draft recreation mode. There was so much hype around the FUT Draft final yr, however with the introduction of the Weekend League this yr, that each one appears to have died down a bit.

A Generations FUT Draft could possibly be a good way of restoring extra curiosity in the sport mode once more though, and will present a implausible alternative to play with some of those previous cards that you simply liked a lot in years passed by. I’ve solely performed one draft this yr, however a Generations Draft would undoubtedly get me concerned in the game mode again and I might definitely see myself spending a whole lot of time and probably money on it, too.


You’d in all probability end up with a LOT of ridiculously ugly kits, and a fair amount of badges featuring poorly drawn penises, however the potential to create your personal kits and badges in Ultimate Team might be quite a nice touch. You identify your group and you should use any kits and badges featured in the sport that you simply like, however permitting individuals a bit little bit of creativity like this might be completely awesome.

Presently whenever you pre-order the game you get a couple of particular version kits, but perhaps in future, as an alternative of doing this, pre-ordering the game might grant you the access to begin placing your personal design work and creativity to the check, producing a few kits and a badge which you could choose to use in the game? Personally, I’d love that.


Loan players obviously already exist in FIFA Ultimate Team, but not in this way and a cool new function for the game might perhaps be the power to loan out your players to different golf equipment. As well as to the switch listing, there might be a new mortgage listing where you may seek for players out there for mortgage. Totally different mortgage lengths can be obtainable, so perhaps you may take a participant for someday, three days, or one week, and you would use the filters to seek for your desired loan size.

We’ve all been there where we’ve splashed out massive on a new star player for our aspect, solely to get into a couple of games with them and discover that they don’t go well with our play fashion in any respect. You immediately need to move them on once more, however then in fact you get hit with that 5% tax. A attempt before you buy system like this could possibly be a great way of experimenting with totally different players, and will additionally provide a nice further method of creating a number of coins whenever you’re away or unable to play the sport for whatever purpose.

Additionally, typically you get a very good untradeable participant, but for a league that you simply don’t truly play with and in order that player largely goes to waste. In the event you might mortgage them out though then they’d at the least serve some type of function.


Although he performs there on 7 chem, Moussa Sissoko has been a completely insane centre mid for me this yr in FIFA Ultimate Team. He’s massive, he’s robust, he can defend pretty nicely, and in addition has some very good finishing potential as nicely when he’s venturing ahead. Additionally, should you take a look at his positioning in-game then you possibly can see that the game does truly recognise him as a CAM as well as a proper mid.

What I’d like to see for FIFA 18 Ultimate Team is the power to change gamers into another position that they’re capable of enjoying. You might change common Ronaldo for example from a left winger to a striker, or stick tremendous Sissoko by means of the middle with out the need to have him on 7 chemistry. You’ll be able to already flip a CDM into a striker… Why not permit it in order that players can play different positions that the sport already recognises them as in a position to play?

For those who’ve obtained any thoughts on what you’d like to see modified for FIFA 18? Let me know your concepts in the comments section down under!
