EA adds handy FIFA 20 Ultimate Team feature and players are loving it

EA SPORTS might have faced some backlash from the community due to their handling of FIFA 20, but a brand new feature that’s been added to Ultimate Team cards has been met with open arms.

The game’s developers have been making changes to the game wherever possible, rolling out patches to bring more content to the game – more recently in the form of the CONMEBOL Libertadores Update #12 – and have seemingly made another interesting tweak to FUT 20 as well.

With thousands of Ultimate Team cards to collect, whether that be base players, TOTW, or more special cards, a handy new dropdown in the Player Details section has been positively received by many players, despite the change coming some six months after the title’s release.

Knowing FIFA 20 player traits can be really useful, but there’s never been an option to see them in FUT – until now.

As seasoned veterans of the game mode will know already, looking at cards in-depth can be much better than just judging them on their six base stats presented on the front of the card, giving players a chance to review exactly what they bring to the table – if you were to buy them.

The Player Details bar had previously pulled up three different sets of information: player bio, player details, and attribute details. However, a fourth has been added to that list.

The latest addition, as seen in a Reddit post below from LeopoldMashallah, allows players to check a card’s traits whenever they want. This means that FUT club owners can check whether or not, for example, their player has the Outside Foot Shot ability, Injury Prone trait and more.

EA have added a "Traits" tab to the Player Details from FIFA

This should be a really useful addition for players looking to exploit specific and original traits that each member of their squad possesses, with one Reddit user in the thread saying: “That is genuinely one of the best things they’ve done all year,” and another stating: “Be thankful for the little things.”

For those who don’t know all of the traits available in FIFA 20, we’ve named them all in the full list below.

Some players have particular traits that might make them stand out from the crowd.

FIFA 20 traits

Traits are split into four different types in FIFA 20 – according to EA SPORTS. These are standard, CPU AI, Career Mode and Virtual Pro – so clearly not all included in the game are available in Ultimate Team. Those that are, however, can be found below.

  • Finesse shot
  • Outside Foot Shot
  • Power Header
  • Long Throw-In
  • Giant Throw-In
  • Takes Powerful Driven Free-kicks
  • Swerve
  • Fancy Passes
  • Flair
  • Injury Prone
  • Flat Kick
  • Rush Out of Goal
  • GK: Cautious with Crosses 
  • GK: Comes for Crosses
  • GK: Save with Foot
  • GK: Long Thrower
  • Leadership
  • One Club Player
  • Team Player

This new feature will allow you to identify certain abilities and techniques each player has before buying them, which might be the difference between you purchasing one card over another. A small, yet useful, change.


FIFA 21 TOTW 10 predictions: Mahrez, Griezmann, Coman

Team of the Week is back for TOTW in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. However, if our predictions are spot on, it won’t be the best team we’ve ever seen. 

It might feel like FIFA 21 has been out forever, but the game is still in its infancy as Ultimate Team promos continue to roll out.

We’ve had Rulebreakers, Black Friday, Record Breakers, and Road to the Final get underway already – and we can even start to look forward to FUTMas in the coming days as December is about to get underway.

Amongst all the pop-up promos, Team of the Week remains a constant. We’ve had a best of Team of the Week appar already as well, but away from that, the spotlight turns to TOTW 10 and what that could offer.

Barcelona’s Antoine Griezmann should feature in TOTW 10.

Truth be told, if our predictions are spot on, it won’t be the best Team of the Week that’s ever graced FIFA – purely because it looks like it’s lacking big names. 

Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez, Barcelona’s Antoine Greizmann, and Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman look to be the standout players – with plenty of solid, if unspectacular cards, also making their way in. 

Karl Toko-Ekambi played a part in all three of Lyon’s goals in their win over Reims, so he’s in – which should help Ligue 1 squad owners. Similarly, RB Leipizig’s Angelino deserves a boost after his performance, as does Leeds United’s Raphinha.

FIFA 21 TOTW 10 Predictions | Team of the Week 10

  • GK: Sam Johnstone – West Bromwich Albion
  • GK: Fernando Pacheco – Alaves
  • LB: Angelino – RB Leipzig
  • RB: Ruben Aguilar – AS Monaco
  • RB: Gaetano Letizia – Benevento
  • CB: Alessio Romangoli – AC Milan
  • CB: Sean Morrison – Cardiff City
  • CDM: Ellyes Skhiri – FC Koln
  • CM: Davy Klaasen – Ajax
  • CM: Florian Nehaus – Borussia Monchengladbach
  • CM: Teun Koopmeiners – AZ Alkmaar
  • CM: Miguel Veloso – Hellas Verona
  • RM: Akihiro Ienaga – Kawasaki-F
  • RM: Raphinha – Leeds United
  • RW: Riyad Mahrez – Manchester City
  • RW: Philip Zinckernagel – FK Bodø/Glimt
  • LW: Karl Toko-Ekambi – Lyon
  • LW: Kingsley Coman – Bayern Munich
  • CAM: Dominik Szoboszlai – RB Salzburg
  • ST: Mbaye Diagne – Galatasary 
  • ST: Antoine Griezmann – Barcelona
  • ST: Wout Weghorst – Wolfsburg
  • ST: Mama Samba Baldé – Dijon

Obviously, we’ve not chosen to give Edison Cavani a slot despite his late-game heroics for Manchester United against Southampton.

The Uruguayan forward doesn’t have a United card in-game, and while EA has given player an IF before a base card, we just don’t know if they’ll do the same here. Either way, we’ll just have to see what happens on Wednesday, December 2!
