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

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.
Our trading guide tells you how to gain the most difficult FIFA 20 coins in FIFA 20. This means that you're a FIFA player. You started an online game and saw the opposing team. The team is full of icons and players like, Messi, Ronaldo or Neymar - as special cards. Beating the exclusively high offence of these opponents is important. In the game you notice that the gamer is not playing that well. The opposite is often the case. You counter the opponent, you have more possession of the ball and a lot more chances to score. The ball will not go into the goal. Sometimes you hit the post, the other time the opposing icon keeper owns uncatchable balls and last but not least, the Prime Icon Moments Ferdinand "automatically" grabs the shot and prevents an actually safe goal. In return, it comes as so important. 2-3 One Touch Passes in the top on Ronaldo or Messi and the bell rings. Differentiate from impossible angles just hit the goal. In such situations, you no longer understand the world. At the same time, however, you doubt your team and think about how it would work if you yourself had a team of top players.
FIFA has become a lottery in recent years. More and more FIFA players spend money in FIFA points to draw packs to make FIFA coins. Another one is buying FIFA coins. Many other players who do not want to invest real money then think that they are at a disadvantage. Some ask themselves whether there is a way to build a dream team in FIFA without spending real money. Thank God there are many different ways!
Everyone can make FIFA coins!
The goal of any FUT player should be to continuously improve their team. This makes it possible to play and play more fun with a strong team. However, even if many coins are paid to buy the best top players for themselves.
There are too many trading methods that can be used to generate a considerable amount and coins without large funds and without previous knowledge. In order to be your first contact and to show that it is a good one and that all trading methods are easy to implement, I will show you some of them:
Make FIFA coins using the 0 method
A very important and easy FIFA trading method. This is where you buy popular 84 players (top 5 leagues and popular nations) and then place them on the transfer market for 7,000 starting price and 10,000 buy now price (BIN) for 1 hour. The sense is as follows: These players have a minimum starting price of 700. Many will not look up the sale price when selling and put the player on the market for 700 - 10,000 to bid. With the additional 0 you often do not see the difference and offer the player 7,000 instead of 700. 84's and popular 83's are particularly good here, as they are used for reading SBCs. Currently at TOTS time, we will be able to wait for new new SBCs in which 83s - 85s with higher highs will be more likely. For this reason, it makes sense to feel in demand with approaches and to put them on the market every hour for 7,000 - 10,000. For this method, you can choose all cards from the top 5 leagues.
As with any FUT trading method, gold is also used here: patience is the key to success. Just give it a try and you will see why this method is one of the most popular, especially at the beginning and with little start-up capital.
(See example of the "True 0 method" Diego Costa, normal price approx. 1.2k)
FUT trading with the 84+ method
I have a good friend who uses this FUT trading method and makes several millions with it alone. And when it comes to using a single player, you can find out which player it is and how this method works in this section.
The 84 and 85 method can be the whole FUT year because players with an 84 or 85 rating are the most likely to become SBCs. Since SBCs are offered all year round, these cards are also seen all year round.
This FIFA trading method is about buying popular 84 and 85 players, if they are “cheap” and selling them, they will increase in price. If you know what exactly the “cheap” and “expensive” fees are, you should include more.
During the course of the FUT year, many SBCs (Flashback, POTM, Guaranteed TDW or special events) appear regularly, which usually require 84 and 85 team ratings.
After the release of these SBCs, popular 84s and 85s almost always rise significantly in price. Depending on how popular the SBC reward is, the cards required will increase accordingly. Basically, you should buy the players if no SBC is currently offered. Since the SBCs come regularly but also expire, you have to shop in phases when it is "quiet". Reward days or pack offers during events are the best times to buy the players as cheaply as possible. Ideally, you even bid the players to get them even cheaper than buy it now price.
Now let me explain what I mean by popular players. Popular players are those who can be linked very well in SBCs. This includes the players from the top 5 leagues. Another criterion is the nation of the player. Popular, easy-to-link nations are England, Italy, Germany, Brazil, France, Spain, Argentina, Netherlands and Portugal.
It is also advantageous to take players from the top clubs of the top 5 leagues, because they increase in reality due to their popularity.
From my experience, I can say that goalkeepers barely rise and remain largely stable in price. The exception is Neto from FC Barcelona. Because of its nation and high rating (85) it is very popular and used in many SBC teams. So much for theory. Let's take a look at what it looks like in practice:
A friend of mine noticed very quickly that Carvajal is increasing the most from Real Madrid to SBCs, which (among other things) require an 85 team rating. Carvajal fulfills all the requirements that we mentioned earlier. He plays in the La Liga, is Spanish and plays for a top club. It is one of the most popular cards in SBCs. Especially since he is the only RV with this rating.
So my colleague does nothing but fill his club with Carvajals as soon as it is available for 10k and cheaper. By "make club full" I mean, if possible, the complete transfer list (100 places) and the complete watch list. You do not have to fill the entire club with one player with this trading method, otherwise you are limited with other methods. This was just one example of how my colleague does it. He has little time to trade and is therefore fully focused on this type and on this player. Success proves him right!
As you can see, there are always several options on how to proceed with a method. Of course, it also works if you buy fewer players. Of course, I've done this method very often with Carvajal. Its price rises to 25 + k according to popular SBCs. When Carvajal was available on the market at a "quieter" time without interesting SBCs for 9k, I decided to invest 500k in it to see what would happen when the next good SBC came.
So I bought 50 Carvajals and waited about a week for a new SBC. Of course, this was associated with a certain risk, because you never know exactly when the next attractive SBC is coming. There were also 50 places on the transfer list.
When a very attractive Flashback SBC came after a short time, I knew that it was worth the wait and the risk. Hazard Flashback was the SBC player and of course 85 cards were needed. Carvajal was perfect for this, especially since he is Spanish and also plays for Real Madrid. Carvajal quickly reached a price of just under 20k.
Since Hazard is a very popular player and also has extremely good values, many FUT players have done this SBC. So the investment had paid off in full. All Carvajal cards could easily be sold at a price of 18-20k. We remember the purchase price of 9k. The profit per card was therefore just under 10k. The same process was already worth gold in FIFA 19, as the Miranda example shows. At that time still in Serie A, with good nationality on the left, plus IV. With interesting SBCs, a price increase of 6-7 k to its normal price (9k) was not uncommon. Here, the normal price was almost doubled.
(Carvajal's price history. Good to see the constant ups and downs - peak in late March / early April when the Mid Icon SBC was released)
If, as in my case, you invested around 500k in Miranda, you would quickly reach over a million. Of course, not everyone has 500k to invest in, but that's not the point. Any investment at the recommended price (8-9k) would be profitable. And making profit is ultimately the key.
Now I would like to show you which 84 and 85 players are most worthwhile in FIFA 20 and which purchase prices can be described as "cheap". All 84s are considered to be the "cheaper" price if they cost less than 4k. For the 85s, a good guideline is usually below 9k. With the exceptions, I wrote the price behind it. Depending on the market situation, players can either be offered or purchased for immediate purchase. It's up to everyone.
(Example of the 85 method, based on Icardi)
The 84 and 85 method is definitely suitable for Premier League players. Since the POTM PL SBC comes every month, the PL players are used more and more. Sokratis is one of the best teams in the 84 series because he is the only central defender.
In series A there is a large selection of 84 and 85 cards in FIFA 20. You can find cheap players with advantageous nations for practically every position.
In FIFA 20, Ligue 1 only offers a limited selection of 84 and 85 series. The 86s and 87s are more interesting here. Verratti, Marquinhos, Di Maria and Keylor Navas are among the cheapest players with this rating. In addition, everyone plays for PSG, which quickly brings high chemistry. A chemistry of 80 is now required for many SBCs. It is easier to achieve high chemistry with the players mentioned.
The La Liga offers a very large selection of 85 cards this year. As mentioned earlier, Carvajal is an extremely popular card for SBCs in this area. But players like Marcelo, Aspas or Koke also have potential for good price increases. In the area of the 84s, Felipe from Atletico Madrid is the most popular player. Because of its nationality and position, is always an interesting option. Since FIFA 20 there is also a monthly POTM SBC for La Liga. This is also a positive factor for potential price jumps.
The Bundesliga is also very popular because a POTM SBC comes here every month. There are many 84 cards, especially compared to last year. The investment in Niklas Süle was and is really worthwhile this year. Since he is the only IV in this rating region, regular price explosions can be expected here.
Now you should have an overview of which players can be used with this method and what the approximate "cheap" purchase price is. However, this is only a guide.
In the end you have to decide for yourself what profit you are satisfied with. Of course, you can also make a profit if the players are more expensive than I specified. It is just a point of reference that you can use as a guide. If you use this trading method for a certain time, you will get a feeling for how high which player usually rises and can therefore set your own purchase price.
Best time to sell players in FIFA
The best time to sell is of course after the publication of the respective SBC. At what price you sell the player is up to you. Some are happy with 2k win per player, others wait for the player to increase by 5k.
It is in our nature that we always want to take the maximum with us, but this is often the wrong decision when trading. I believe that a safe win should be preferred to risk.
In my experience, players reached the highest retail price approximately 2 hours after the SBC was released.
I make it so that immediately after the SBC is published I add my players with an 84 rating at the starting price of 7,000 and instant purchase of 10,000. As you can see below some of them are already going away for these prices. I usually sell the remaining players 2 hours later at the market price.
Successful FIFA trading requires patience
In addition to patience, the basic requirement for FUT trading is continuity. There will be phases when you will think about giving up because no sales will be made. It is precisely in these situations that you have to show patience and stay tuned!
There will inevitably be moments of success and these will push you to continue. The longer you deal with trading, the better you get.
Remember that you only have to invest a little time to learn these methods once at the beginning. The knowledge you have learned and applied will be retained forever afterwards. You will be able to use these trading methods in all future versions of FUT as they will not change.
I recommend you set a dream team as your goal, which you can work towards. This team is likely to include many expensive players. It will be difficult for you at first to imagine having such a team at some point. Set yourself small intermediate goals by first focusing on a player. Once you've bought the player, move on to the next one. And so you keep going until you have your dream team together.
The end of EA's FIFA 20 is approaching. But don't worry FIFA 21 is already in the starting blocks. The exact release date could have been leaked by a leak.

FIFA 21: Leak reveals the release date of the new EA title
The corona virus currently holds professional football firmly under control. While some professional leagues such as the Bundesliga are starting again, the competitions in France and Belgium were completely canceled. There are also concerns in the video game industry. The coronavirus could affect the release of the next-gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X have. FIFA 21 will be released without delay and lots of gamers will be looking for FIFA 21 Coins soon. This has now been confirmed by EA Sports:
If you take a look at the past releases of the FIFA series , you will notice that FIFA always appeared on the last Friday of September. It can be assumed that EA will not deviate from this release cycle this year either. Based on the confirmation from EA already mentioned , it can be assumed that FIFA 21 will appear on September 25, 2020 ( all information about FIFA ).
FIFA 21 Leak: So you can play the new FIFA part before the release
If you can't take it until the supposed release on September 25, you can put your hands on FIFA 21 in several ways. On the one hand, the FIFA demo appears every year around two weeks before the official release, in which you can feel the changes in the new FIFA section.

All you have to do is take out an EA Access subscription for € 2.99 a month. However, your playing time will be limited to 10 hours. What exactly will be different about FIFA 21 is not yet clear . However, we picked out six changes that would make FIFA 21 better than its predecessor. Bundesliga TOTS with Coutinho? That's why EA is now getting a shit storm . How good is the rarest team in FIFA 20? Let's find out in another amazing WhatsGaming blog.
Opening FUT packs is based on luck! The packs give the game players a chance to get some of the best and expensive players in-game at great costs. It may be true in some cases but in others, it is often opposite. The FUT packs often have 6 to 30 items of possible contents. The contents can range from rewarding the game player to a combination of expensive players to include in the team. The packs are categorised in gold, silver, and bronze. They can be bought for virtual coins or real money.
Occasionally, in weekly events that are organised by Electronic Arts, unique packages such as Rare Players Pack and the ultimate packs. They give higher-priced contents in exchange for better packages. The likeliness of the profits is still low and still can be expensive for the average player. A question often asked by gamers on forums and other sources are if the packs are predetermined.
So, are FUT Packs Predetermined?
No, they are not. The game’s description states that the FUT packs are random, it means the players are placed in the packs without any order or rule. But being random doesn't mean the players are included in the packs at the time of purchasing the FUT Packs. Each pack has a chance of being presented to the tournament players. The type of players of the pack can be viewed easily by at the start button before opening the pack, but the players are not visible. According to the odds at stake, getting one or more players with scores above 90, 87, or 75 is probable. These players are displayed in their categories. To gain a better understanding of the packs, consider the odds of the player opening ratings and prices in the purchased packs. The packs bought by FIFA coins should then be analysed and removed. When it comes to evaluating the predetermined packages other questions come with it.
When are FUT Packs Determined?
Another common question that is asked by new and old FIFA players is if the FUT packs are determined at what point is the content decided. As explained by several forums the FUT packs are determined at the time of the opening. When you open the FUT pack, it will be determined what players you get. Saving the packs and opening them in later tournaments can also yield better results. Players have also received Team of the Group Stage (TOTGS) or Team of the Season (TOTS) players from packs they have saved for months.
Will the expensive packs offer better players?
While it is true that getting a more expensive pack will result in a better player, the potential loss is far more than just profits. The packs are available at different price points with the Jumbo Rare Player costing around 100k FIFA coins. Even with expensive packs few players with points above 75, 79 and 80 are reached. There have been some cases of the players getting lucky. At the opening, they might find bright packs, priced icons or special cards of best players at the weekly astronomical events. The rewards and players received in silver and bronze are different than in gold packs and can also vary depending on the coins spent. These packs are offered as prizes and in smaller packages.
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:
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.
These events were already running on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team
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.
