A new year, a new FIFA. EA's trademark franchise has hit a new high with its latest iteration. A completely new engine with brand new modes, FIFA 17 has already been labelled as one of the freshest entries in the series. And also, making its annual return is one of the most popular online gaming modes in existence, FIFA Ultimate Team. And we have decided to make a guide to help you succeed in your journey to FUT glory.
First off, the entire mode has been revamped. The new categorization of cards being one of the standout features. But let's focus on the basics of FUT off the bat. In FIFA Ultimate Team, players are tasked to make their own teams. Players are categorized in 3 qualities – Bronze, Silver, Gold. Team chemistry is extremely important. And for making green connections between your players, they either have to be from the same team or the same country. You can make hybrid teams too like a mix from different leagues but the country/club factor is vital. For example, you can make a team with all the best players like Bale and Zlatan but your team will still be weak due to its mismatch in chemistry. I would highly recommend playing the single player FUT mode first to earn enough coins to build a non-rare gold team before starting your online adventure.
So, the cards. There is a new option of looking out for players. Suppose you marked someone like Mahrez to watch out for and he makes the team of the week, then you will find a special Mahrez card in the market. And packs also involve color cards where the overalls are a bit less but certain attributes are better.
One suggestion would be that if you don't buy coins, make a Serie A or La Liga team, Player prices have been hiked up immensely. Try to make two separate squads. So, that when one team is tired, you can play your other squad while the other team rests.
Regarding coins, there is an efficient method you can try. Basically, you search up a player in the transfer market and find his lowest “Buy Now” price which is let's say 2200 coins. Now you bid 2000 for 5 of his cards. And once you get them, you sell them for his optimum price of 4000 coins. So, you are making a profit of 2000 per card. It's a bit difficult but useful.
Finally, buy a lot of fitness cards and healing cards because in FIFA 17 players tend to get injured a lot. So, rather be safe than sorry.
Now, what are you waiting for? Grab your copy of FIFA 17 and get started on your Ultimate Team.
