- Level: low
The classic TDW trading at FIFA Ultimate Team is a very simple and secure way to top up your account balance with FIFA Coins in a short amount of time. The new team of the week comes every Wednesday evening. The best thing to do is buy the players between Monday / Tuesday the following week or just above the BIN price and just leave them on the Tradepile.
As you can see from the two graphics, the prices rise as soon as the player can no longer be drawn in the packs. For this method, use players in popular leagues or a popular name and with an adequate rating (e.g. overall rating> 80) so that you can ensure that these players are in demand. Buy players who are just above the Discard price on Monday / Tuesday, i.e. between 10,500 - max. 12,000 FIFA coins. If you follow these basic rules, you can often look forward to value increases of 30-50% in 1-2 weeks. With this method, you can earn FIFA Coins very easily and without any risk.
Tip: Combine TOTW trading with overpriced selling to get rid of one or the other player at very high FIFA Coin prices before their market price has risen accordingly. In the course of our trading blog we will explain overpriced selling to you in more detail what needs to be considered and which risks you should definitely avoid.
Of course, other special cards are also suitable for FIFA Ultimate Team. It is important that the players do not cost a lot of FIFA Coins, but are close to the discard price. The method works across all console platforms. Whether XBOX One Coins or PS4 Coins, you can use this method on both consoles without any problems. Only PC FIFA Coins are more difficult to trade because the market is much smaller here.

EA announces the TOTS event for FIFA 20. This time it's Team of the Season so far (TOTSSF) and will start soon. We'll tell you what we already know about it.
On April 17th, EA Sports announced the start of the new TOTS event. The first thing to appear is the Community Team of the Season, for which fans can vote.
When does the team often start the season so far event?
The first Team of the Season will appear in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team on Friday April 24th at 7:00 p.m. (MET + 1).
Why is the TOTS suddenly called TOTSSF?
This year, due to the current corona crisis, the TOTS event is a little different than FUT veterans are used to. In this TOTS, the performance of the players is counted up to the last match day before the football break.
All services provided after the Corona virus-related break will no longer be considered for this year's TOTS. Strong performances are then awarded with TOTW or man-of-the-match cards.
Which players can be chosen?
You can use the FUT community pages FUTWIZ and FUTHEAD to vote for yourself who should end up in the TOTSSF community. Players can be selected from all over the world who have received a maximum of one performance-based special card in FUT 20.
What are the rules for voting at the TOTSSF community:
- You can choose a maximum of 5 players from the same league
- At least 2 goalkeepers
- At least 6 defenders
- At least 6 midfielders
- At least 3 strikers
The FutHead forecast for the community TOTSSF
- TW: Courtois (Real Madrid)
- TW: Leno (Arsenal)
- TW: Gulacsi (RB Leipzig)
- LV: Grimaldo (Benfica Lisbon)
- IV: Pique (FC Barcelona)
- IV: Godin (Inter Milan)
- RV: Trippier (Atletico Madrid)
- IV: Gomez (Liverpool FC)
- IV: Fernandinho (Manchester City)
- IV: Pepe (FC Porto)
- ZM: Thiago (Bayern Munich)
- ZM: Casemiro (Real Madrid)
- ZDM: Busquets (FC Barcelona)
- ZOM: Brandt (Borussia Dortmund)
- LM: Zaha (Crystal Palace)
- ZM: Bentancur (Piemonte Calcio / Juventus Turin)
- ZM: Leiva (Lazio Rome)
- LM: Anderson (West Ham)
- ST: Icardi (PSG)
- ST: Falcao (Galatasaray)
- ST: Thuram (Borussia Mönchengladbach)
- ST: Dembele (Lyon)
- ST: Edouard (Celtic)
The most prominent candidates this year include Sergio Busquets and Gerard Piqué from FC Barcelona, Diego Godín from Inter Milan and Thibaut Courtois from Real Madrid.
The following players from Germany are involved in this TOTS:
- Péter Gulácsi (RB Leipzig)
- Nordi Mukiele (RB Leipzig)
- Ozan Kabak (FC Schalke 04)
- Thiago (FC Bayern Munich)
- Julian Brandt (Borussia Dortmund)
- Marcus Thuram (Borussia Mönchengladbach)
- Fabian Klos (DSC Arminia Bielefeld)
How long does the event last?
As a rule, the TOTS event in FUT runs over several weeks, in which a new team of the season of a major league appears every week. We are again expecting a multi-week event that will last at least 5 weeks.
What happens when football is played again?
EA Sports has already made it clear in a blog entry that if the football leagues end this year, there will be no further Team of the Season event. Top performances in the remaining games will instead be recognized as usual in the form of team-of-the-week (TOTW) or man-of-the-match (MOTM) special cards.
What else do you need to know about the TOTSSF event?
This year there will again be numerous weekly tasks and SBCs for the TOTS event. For the latter, it is important to have a few FIFA coins in your account to invest.
It is also quite possible that the transfer market will go crazy again during the TOTS event and that extremely strong players can be bought for very few FIFA coins. However, you have to decide whether you want to sell expensive players from your current squad quickly before they are worth less, or rather keep the players in order to have a strong team until or during the TOTS promotion.
We hope we could give you a good impression of the TOTS EVENT in FIFA 20 and hope you enjoy it.
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.
As a FIFA player, you've probably dealt with In-Form cards that show up on your path from time to time and you may wonder how they work and where you can get them from. In this article we'll talk about TOTW cards that could help the gamers use improved players in their team and even make FIFA 21 Coins using the methods that we'll share with you in the end.
What is a TOTW card?
TOTW stands for the "Team of the Week" and it's an event in FIFA. It's happens every week and it will introduce some In-Form cards for you to use. You can see the full list of FIFA 21 Events in our blog.
Now, what does TOTW really mean? Like we said, it's a weekly event, and EA will form a fictional team based on the performance of players in different leagues in real life, and they'll put the players together to assemble this team of the week, and as a result, around 20 players who get elected will receive a black IF card which is labeled as TOTW.
Additionally, the team of the week will be available for 1 week so you can play against in the TOTW Challenge mode in FIFA.
The event takes place each Wednesday, at 6:00 PM, UK time.
What can I do with a TOTW Card?
You may encounter TOTW Cards in FUT Packs when you buy them or in the Transfer Market and you'll notice that the prices of these cards are slightly higher than the regular non-IF cards, and that's because of the improved skills in that card. In fact, the EA designers will watch the players in Premier League, Bundesliga, etc. and see which player performs better for which skills, and with their own secret measures and methods they'll pick those players for that week's TOTW and will improve that specific skills for the black card. And the player's position is also determined based on which positions the player has been performing better in real world.
You can buy the TOTW cards, simply because they're better than the normal cards and consequently improve your team's performance. You can also sell the cards to make some money.
How to Make FIFA Coins or Real Money with TOTW?
One way to make FIFA Coins is by investing in FUT Packs, where you buy specific packs before an event takes place or a card's price goes up and when it's higher in the Transfer Market, for example when there's an SBC going on, you'd sell the cards at a higher price and thus make millions of FUT Coins.
TOTW Cards can also be used as investment subjects. You will need to watch the games of the current week closely to have an idea which players will be likely chosen for the Team of the Week. If this prediction turns out right, you'll make lots of coins, otherwise you'd lose some.
Now, TOTW predictions are not easy, as you know. Some websites share their own opinions and predictions of TOTW every week, some times they are close and some times they're not! So, it's up to you to pick which website or social media channel to follow for TOTW Predictions. But as you know, nothing is 100% sure.
Now, if you make millions of FIFA Coins, you can of course use them to buy great players on Transfer Market for your team, but one day you'll have much more than you need and you may wonder if you can make real money with the coins. Some people do that frequently and it's become a source of money for them. We at WhatsGaming are happy to walk you through the process and are one of the best websites where you can sell FIFA Coins to. Should you have questions regarding the process or concerns about its legitimacy or how your account is safe during the coin transfer, you can read our FAQ or just send us a message via our Live Support.
If you're interested in FIFA investment, here's a thorough article covering the subject that will give you an idea how to make coins or money in FIFA 21.
How are TOTW Cards chosen?
Now, for making a good prediction about TOTW, you should have an idea how EA chooses the cards and what criteria do they have when they pick TOTW cards from the candidates. Here are some features that possibly have an important role in selecting the TOTW cards:
- No. of Goals scrored
- No. of Goals saved
- Minutes played
- No. of Goal Assists
- Match difficulty
- Man of the Match
As you can see, features that usually take place in a game that brings a player higher compared to others, like amazing saves, or successful dribbling, scoring great goals, etc. that the viewers could remember, will increase the chances of that player to be chosen as one of the members of that week's TOTW.
Ones to Watch or OTW are popular upgrade cards among gamers. If you ever look at this page, you'll see a list of players that have been transferred to a new club during summer. So, each summer, a new set of players will get an OTW card that can be bought and invested in.
The OTW cards are upgradable. It means based on the player's performance in real life, the OVR and skills and the OTW card will be increased and as a result, the IF card will worth more FIFA 21 Coins when you sell them on the market.
Once the summer transfers are done, usually OTW takes place in October each year. Then, two teams of players will be introduced as Ones to Watch cards. They have a purple-ish background. Distinctive to the normal cards.
When will OTW cards upgrade?
Usually, when the player performs well in real life, his OTW card will increase in OVR and skills. Most of the times, the player will show up in TOTW once or twice, and each time will add 1-2 scores to his OVR. For example, Luis Suarez was OVR 86 in the beginning. And his OTW card got 87 when he got into TOTW1 and then it became 89 when he was picked for TOTW 13.
Diogo Iota started from OVR 80 and reached 85 because he won the TOTGS title and a TOTW. These cards are great for investing, but you should know what you're doing. Because if the player doesn't improve his play, the card will remain the same and thus no profit. Just a waste of time. If they get into one of those TOTW events or similar, then there will be a boost in price and you can make some FIFA Coins when you sell them.
FIFA 21 OTW Players
Here's the list of players that were chosen for OTW this season (2021):
- Hee Chan Hwang
- Sandro Tonali
- Nathan Ake
- Victor Osimhen
- Diogo Jota
- Ichraf Hakimi
- Blaise Matuidi
- Martin Odegaard
- Gareth Bale
- Thomas Partey
- Alex Telles
- Thiago Silva
- Hakim Ziyech
- Timo Werner
- Luis Suarez
- Jonathan David
- Alessandro Florenzi
- Ferran Torres
- Arturo Vidal
- Donny van de Beek
- Nelson Semedo
- James Rodriguez
- Thiago Alcantara
- Leroy Sane
- Kai Havertz
Headliners are one of those cards that upgrade throughout the season based on the player's real-life performance and therefore when you want to buy FIFA Coins to pay for those cards, you will have to check their latest price in case there has been a recent update.
How do FIFA Headliners Upgrade?
Two teams will be introduced each year as the FIFA Headliners. The initial stats and OVR for each of these cards are already boosted, and yet every time the player appears on TOTW, MOTM, TOTGS, etc., the Headliners cards will get an upgrade as well.
And that's why their prices and ratings are higher than for example OTW cards. If you're wondering how do the Headliner cards look like, well the upper side has an amber-ish color and the base is purple as you can see below:
When is Headliners selected?
Usually, in mid-January two teams are selected. In order to obtain the Headliners cards, you need to get the players right after they're available via FUT Packs, and you can earn those packs by completing a few series of SBCs related to Headliners.
