FIFA, one of the most famous games in the world, has now replaced the previous FIFA 19 with FIFA 20 and everything starts again.
The game modes have not changed significantly, especially with FIFA Ultimate Team, almost everything remains the same. However, there is also a new game mode - Volta. The Volta is practically a new edition of FIFA Street. If you like FIFA tricks, then the Volta mode is your thing. That would be it with the innovations, however. With regard to FIFA Coins, everything at FIFA 20 stays the way you know it.
So let's talk about one of the most important factors in Ultimate Team mode - the FIFA 20 Coins. In addition to FIFA Points, it is the other ingame currency that is used at FUT.
FIFA 20 coins can be used to:
- Complete Squad Building Challenges.
- Buy FIFA 20 packs.
- Buy FIFA 20 players on the transfer market.
You can always see the FIFA Coins balance on your Ultimate Team Account at the top left of the screen. FIFA 19 FIFA Coins are not transferable to FIFA 20, but FIFA Points are. Unfortunately, the same also applies to your entire Ultimate Team. As a FIFA veteran, however, you have already got used to this sad certainty and accepted that you have to put money into FIFA every year to improve your Ultimate Team.
How to get FIFA 20 coins:
To earn FIFA 20 Coins, all you have to do is play. However, there are other ways to get more XBOX or PS4 FIFA coins:
- Buying and selling players and objects on the FUT transfer market
- Weekend League rewards
- Squad building challenges
However, the fastest possible solution for more FIFA coins is still buying. Although EA doesn't like buying FIFA Coins because EA wants to distribute its own FIFA Points, many customers choose to buy FIFA Coins because of the better value for money. However, the cheaper price has its pitfalls. If you do not inquire about the seller in terms of security, price, delivery time and reliability before buying FIFA coins, you may be surprised. With inexperienced suppliers or dubious websites, EA may notice the FIFA Coins transaction and block your account or at least withdraw the transferred FIFA coins. We at WhatsGaming have years of experience in transferring FIFA Coins and have developed our own system (link player auction) for this, with which you are guaranteed to be able to transfer FIFA Coins safely on your PS4 or Xbox One.
If you buy FIFA coins, you can choose between the player auction and Comfort Trade. We recommend the player auction for smaller amounts of FUT Coins, because at least with us you can transfer the FIFA coins to your account using our transfer system. For larger quantities, however, we recommend the more convenient variant, Comfort Trade. If your account is completely new, you should be careful not to order tens of millions directly, but gradually buy larger quantities.
How much do FIFA 20 Coins cost now?
Difficult to say, but there are guidelines that you can use as a guide. The average price for a single FIFA coin is around € 0.0002 - € 0.00025 at the start of a FIFA season. So with one euro you get about 5,000 FIFA Coins, with 10 € 50,000 FIFA Coins and with 20 € 100,000 FIFA Coins. However, the prices are falling again, so that you will probably only pay around € 15 per 100k at TOTY. However, this can never be said exactly. However, there is a rule of thumb - the longer the season, the cheaper the FIFA Coins. Only the price of FIFA Points remains the same throughout the season.
EA has hardly started a new campaign - for example the annual Team of the Year, everyone wants to invest in FUT packs to take advantage of the unique opportunity to draw a TOTY player. What many do not know is that the likelihood of drawing such a FIFA player is very low and it takes a lot of FUT 20 packs to have a chance at all. Just look at the following three scenarios:
- You can buy 12,000 FIFA Points for € 100.
- With the 12,000 FIFA Points you can open 80 of 7.5k packs.
- The 7.5k FUT packs usually have a low packing rate, i.e. good players are rarely drawn.
Scenario (1): Worst case
If we now assume the worst-case and do not draw a good FIFA player at all, then we would have an average of between 1100 and 1300 coins if we discarded every card. In total for the word-case this results in approx. 90,000 - 105,000 coins when purchasing 12,000 FIFA Points.
Scenario (2): Expectable result
As a rule, however, you have players with a total rating of 84+ in the number of packs, so that you should probably be on average around 200,000 - 300,000 FUT coins after you have sold all players from the 80 packs.
Scenario (3): Best case
If you are extremely lucky and draw one of the popular TOTY players or a Ronaldo, you can also get 1,000,000 FIFA Coins or even more out of the 80 packs.
Only in scenario (3) do you have the chance that buying FIFA Points will bring you more FIFA Coins than buying FIFA Coins directly. On average, FIFA coins cost around € 10 per 100k, sometimes even only € 5 at the end of a season. The FIFA Points costs always remain the same.
Shortly after the release, buying FIFA coins cheaply makes more sense than putting your money in FIFA Points. In addition, many FIFA Coin websites have their own discount programs, which EA also does not have. WhatsGaming.net has, for example, the following discounts, which depend on the amount of FIFA coins ordered
- 2% if you bought more than 1,000,000 coins
- 4% if you bought more than 5,000,000 coins
- 6% if you bought more than 10,000,000 coins
- 8% if you bought more than 15,000,000 coins
- 10% if you bought more than 20,000,000 coins
So if you want to buy XBOX FIFA Coins cheaply, you can benefit directly from an order quantity of 1,000,000 FIFA Coins for XBOX of 2% on the total amount. The same goes for PS4 FIFA Coins or the PC.
But enough self-promotion now. Regardless of the fact that we are of course of the opinion that buying FIFA Coins makes more sense for your Ultimate Team than buying FIFA Points, you can also test our example from above yourself. Maybe then you agree with us.
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.
