One of the things that makes a difference in playing FIFA, is to make sure your players are in good conditions before using them in your online matches. You may find this more important in FIFA 21 compared to previous versions of FIFA. Development Plans which is new in FIFA along with Training Drills are your two important tools in Career Mode to work with your players in order to improve them.
FIFA 21 Career Mode Development Plans
Development plans are simply some blueprints for developing your players that determine the path of improvement of those player skills. It means you'd have full control over the development process in FIFA 21 and it helps you to fully stir the process in the direction that you need to prepare the players for the position they're supposed to play in. That includes lots of skills that your defenders or forwards can have. Focus on striking more precisely or tackling for your defenders. With development plans you have freedom to focus on any of the possible skills.
In order to set the plan for each player, you need to go to the Squad Hub or Youth Academy and then choose the player you want to work on. Press the show actions button on your controller. You will find the Development Plan in the actions. Then you'd see a list of growth plans to chose for your player. By navigating through the plans, you can see a preview of the changes that will be applied to the players skills. So, you can pick the right plan for the player by looking at the numbers. The bigger the changes are, the goal will be reached in a longer course. You can also see the ETA which is the time required until your player has reached the rating you've chosen by the development plan.
FIFA 21 has introduced a new quality: sharpness. It indicates the likeliness of a player performing his best in high-sensitive moments in a game.The higher the sharpness, the more likely that the player makes a great score or tackle, etc. where usual players fail to make that shot. It would generate lots of FIFA 21 Coins for you if you learn to use sharpness effectively.
Now, one of the things that improve when you train your players, is sharpness. But the problem is that it contradicts fitness. So, in order to have enough energy until the end of the match, you should balance sharpness and fitness, otherwise the player will need to be substituted in the second half of the match.
Scouting in FIFA 21 Career Mode
In FIFA 21, you start with zero FUT Coins in your account and a new bunch of youth in your football academy in the beginning of your career. Then you hire a scout and then search for new youth players in Brazil, Argentina, Italy, Spain, Central and Eastern Europe and so on. The objective is to find a potential young Lionel Messi. To simplify the lookout process, you can take a look at wonderkids at Futwiz. Lots of potential great players are listed there to pick along with their stats like their Age, OVR and Grow.
When you have found the player, just sign him and it will be added to your youth team where you can train and improve his skills to get the max OVR.
Selling Players in FIFA 21 Career Mode
One of the great things about Career Mode is when you can sell a player and bring some income for your team. When you get an offer for any of your players, you'd see the offer like the following image:
As you can see, the transfer value and the player's weekly wage is stated in the offer. If you think it's a good offer, you can accept the offer to sell the player quickly. In order to do that, you just press A/X to see the player's actions and then Accept Offer. Later on, you could use the FIFA Coins you have to buy another great player for your squad.
But some times you prefer to scout the player and find out the real value of the player. You will need to ask your scout to search for the name of the player. Just visit the Transfers tab and find the player from the long list of players or just search his name. Depending on your scout, sooner or later you'll get a report about the player's stats and value. After that, when you click on the Actions of the player in the Transfer Hub, you'd see your scout's advice on how much the player is worth and how much you should bid on the player.
If you want to do the negotiation yourself, here are a few things you should master: Offer Transfer Fee, Player Swap (if you don't have much funds), Add Sell-on Clause.
The other team's negotiator of course can make offers and modify your offers. You can accept their proposal if they seem good or simply make edits in the offer, like the player's role, contract length, wages, etc.
In FIFA 21, you must define the strictness of the career mode. You can choose for Loose or Strict. It determines how strict your negotiations are. And it cannot be changed once you've started your career.
If you want to keep a good player and you keep getting offers from clubs, you can go to Squad Hub and then Block Offers.
When will EA Sports organize events for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team? We're going to give you an overview of what is going on and when to expect which promo is up for FUT 21.
Events are the spice of FIFA Ultimate Team. EA Sports is releasing new special deals for your team and makes sure that new content will be added to the game.
In the following we show you an overview of events that might be upcoming in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. Please note that these are assumptions based on the observations of the previous year.
This event has been running at FIFA 21:
Summer OTW: On October 9th FIFA 21 was officially released. And directly on the day of the release the first event came. The first Ones-to-Watch team was in packs since October 9th and was replaced by the second team on October 16th.
Rulebreakers: FIFA 21 also has an event around Halloween, but this time it's not the "Scream" event EA has organized in the last three years. It will be replaced by "Rulebreakers", which started on October 23rd.
Possible upcoming events at FIFA 21 Ultimate Team:
Road to the Final: Like the OTW cards, the RTTF cards (also known as UCL live cards) are dynamic cards that can improve their rating - depending on how far the respective team gets in the Champions League or Europa League. The RTTF event started at FIFA 20 on November 8th, we assume also for FIFA 21 November.
Black Friday: This year the Black Friday falls on November 26th. FIFA Ultimate Team also celebrates this day. Other than that, there is the Super Sunday and the Cyber Monday. You can expect special pack offers and lots of SBCs for those FUT 21 Events.
Icon Swap I: For the very first time EA released an icon swap for FUT 20. You have to solve different tasks to earn Tokens. You can exchange these tokens for icon cards later. In FIFA 21, there will be the first Icon Swap in December, as EA announced.
TOTGS: At the "Team of the Group Stage" EA will release special cards to the best players of the group phase of the international competitions. In addition, there are more special cards that can be made available through SBCs or tasks. Despite the corona crisis, UEFA wants to go through the group phase of the competitions in the 2020/21 season this year. For example, the last match-day of the Champions League group phase is scheduled for December 8 or 9. We therefore expect the TOTGS tickets to be released in December.
FUTmas: So far, a real classic! Around Christmas time EA presents the FUT gamers in a kind of Advent calendar with lots of SBCs and new cards in Christmas design.
Icon Swap II: As EA announced, FUT 20 will have a total of three Icon Swaps. The first one (see above) ended shortly before Christmas. The second one started on December 26th.
Team of the Year: EA awards the best players of the year with crass TOTY cards, which are the non plus ultra in the FUT world until the TOTS event (see below). The TOTY event will also be celebrated for several days with SBCs and event-related tasks. Each of the TOTY cards will save up lots of FIFA 21 Coins in case you wanted to buy those cards instead of earning them.
Headliners: The FUT headliners are dynamic and get better as soon as the player receives an in-form (TOTW, MOTM, Hero, Record Breaker and Team of the Tournament). The players are always one better than their best inform in their overall ranking. The event started at FIFA 20 in January, it is very likely that this will be the case this year as well.
Future Stars: As part of the "Future Stars" event, which was held for the first time at FUT 19, EA is releasing blatantly upgraded special cards featuring young talents. The values are intended to reflect the potential of the players. In other words: At some point, these talents could also become so good in real life.
Winter Refresh: Even if this is not an event in the classical sense, the ratings Refresh should be noted. The best players are upgraded and receive new standard cards. Also the stars for the special moves and the weak foot are adjusted. Buying those cards will require lots of FUT 21 Coins. Especially owners of a special card of players who are upgraded will benefit, because the special cards are upgraded as well. We firmly believe that the Winter Refresh will also be available for FUT 21 in February.
Winter-Ones-to-Watch / Winter-Refresh-Team: Surprise! In contrast to previous years, EA Sports did not release Winter-Ones-to-Watch cards for FUT 20. Instead there was a Winter-Refresh-Team. It remains to be seen whether we will get a new batch of OTW cards at FUT 21 in winter.
Shapeshifters: EA Sports came up with something new with the Shapeshifters event, which came a bit surprisingly around the corner in February 2020. This was a special card where position changes and significant boosts are the main focus.
FUT Player Days: This event premiered at FIFA 19. At the first edition there was a best-of team of all previous Inform cards. The team implied not only especially strong TOTW cards, but also Man-of-the-Match cards, Hero cards and "Champions League" or "Europa League" cards. With FIFA 20 everything was different! There was a "CONMEBOL Libertadores Team". So we can be curious what EA Sports will come up with for FUT 21.
FUT Birthday: The FUT Birthday event has become a real classic. The special cards that appear in the course of this event stand out extremely from the standard cards of the players. In FUT 19, there were radical changes of position, in FUT 20, the skill and weak-foot values were tightened.
TOTKS: Similar to the TOTGS (see December), a "Team of the Knockout Stage" is released at the end of the knockout phase of the international competitions. The best players from the Champions League and Europa League will receive a special card, which will be available in packs for one week. You can sell them or buy them with coins on Transfer Market. Here too, there are always SBCs and weekly tasks with event reference. At FIFA 20, the TOTKS event was cancelled due to the corona crisis and the resulting postponement of the European Cup matches.
Team of the Season: The most exciting FUT cards come in this event. The TOTS cards are the ultimate in the end and are extremely popular against a FUT season and can be found in many teams. Usually EA rolls the TOTS event at the end of the season and thus in May. For FIFA 19 for example, EA had to improvise for FIFA 20, because the leagues could not be finished in May as planned due to the coronavirus pandemic. Therefore FIFA 20 had the so-called "Team of the Season So Far" event or TOTSSF.
FUTTIES: With the FUTTIES event EA Sports let the FUT season end for years. At this event, numerous special cards from the current FUT part will once again come in packs, SBCs will be reissued and rewards will be given. But at FUT 20 FUTTIES was replaced by the "Summer Heat". This was an event around the resumption of play in the European top leagues, which was suspended for months due to the Corona pandemic. At FUT 21 EA Sports may return to the FUTTIES event.
Pre-Season: At the Pre-Season, which was first released on FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, you could already prepare for the new FIFA part and get packs. So it's quite possible that you can already solve tasks in FUT 21, from which you will benefit in FUT 22.
This year, during the pandemic FIFA 21 introduced daily Squad Building Challenges (SBC) probably to keep gamers amused while in lockdown. The SBCs are great ways to make FIFA 21 Coins and get great players for your team, but the problem is sometimes the challenges are too difficult to complete.
For example FUT 21 Headliner SBCs, they usually have a minimum requirements for completing the challenge, such as Min IF Players, Min Chemistry, Min Squad Rating, etc., and when you're done, you'll get a Headliner player. To be qualified for the SBC you must play and win lots of games and then you'll be able to complete the challenge.
Transferring FUT 21 Coins
Now that completing an SBC takes a long time with so much effort, you as a gamer might be looking for easier ways to get your FUT 21 Coins. The alternative is to buy coins from websites or people who offer them.
There is no direct way to transfer FIFA coins to another account. But the workaround is to buy and sell items on Transfer Market. That's the legal way of sending and receiving coins in FIFA 21. But there is a risk of getting banned by EA as EA doesn't like to see gamers to sell or buy FIFA Coins. In other words, you should be careful so you don't violate any of EA's rules about coin transfer, and if you leave the work to a reliable website like WhatsGaming, you'd never end up with your account banned. Because WhatsGaming is the best FIFA Coin website and the automated platform is designed just to keep your account safe while you're transferring FUT Coins.
Cheap & Reliable FIFA 21 Coins
Just like we mentioned earlier, it's vital to know that many websites offer FIFA Coins cheap, but some times the account gets banned by EA. Because out of all the websites offering this service, only a few fully understand the regulations and keep the account safe. WhatsGaming's expertise in handling accounts, with a fully automated platform is known to the users. Daily tons of users buy their FIFA 21 Coins from WhatsGaming and hundreds of millions of coins are daily transferred. And not a single one of them get banned, because WG is simply the best FIFA Coin site.
And since the platform is automated and doesn't need human verification, and also since you won't pay 5% EA tax which is mandatory for all transactions on Transfer Market, the FIFA Coins you'll buy will be cheaper than other places.
Additionally, there are occasional FIFA Coin Giveaways offered by WG just to make gamers a bit happier when they want to buy their dream player. It would make WhatsGaming's FIFA Coins cheap, probably cheapest possible.
