FIFA 20 TOTSSF content roadmap revealed

Team of the Season is one of the most highly anticipated events on the FIFA Ultimate Team calendar, but this year EA is taking a different approach – with a new “Team of the Season So Far” promo.

With basically no major football leagues playing games due to the current global crisis, the game’s developers faced a unique challenge with the annual FUT Team of the Season celebration drawing near.

Now, EA have announced that we’ll still be getting all the valuable items were used to seeing from the TOTS celebration, but with a different name and concept. Let’s run through how it’s going to work.

Marco Reus has overcome extended injuries to return to his dominant best in 2019/20 with Dortmund.
FIFA 20 players will soon find out who will be included in the Team of the Season – and they will be voting for selections.

FIFA 20 TOTSSF Squad Releases and SBCs

Each Friday throughout TOTSSF, there will be a unique squad released showcasing some of the best players so far this season. Additional players from those sides will be available during the corresponding weeks as Objectives and Squad Building Challenges.

Nine additional squads will be released throughout the TOTSSF campaign. Two of those respective leagues’ side, the CSL and MLS Leagues, will be based on the most recent campaign that culminated before 2020.

Flashback SBCs are returning for TOTSSF, and players who have been featured in previous Team of the Seasons will be celebrated with special items.

Each week will feature a range of additional SBCs available for a limited time. Many old and new challenges will be released, including the popular Premium League Upgrade SBCs, available for 24 hours towards the conclusion of each League Team of the Season So Far beginning following the Community TOTSSF.

Weekend League Rewards

Alongside that, in a blog post, EA revealed Weekend League rewards will be getting a refresh as well. All Player Pick packs earned each weekend will contain Red TOTSSF special items instead of TOTW/TOTW Moments ones, beginning with the Weekend League starting 24 April.

The TOTSSF Weekend League rewards that guarantee Team of the Season So Far special items will correspond to the leagues in packs at the time the rewards are issued.

Here’s how the Weekend League rewards will differ from a customary Weekend League according to EA:

WL Rank Achieved Reward Earned
Top 100 Ultimate TOTW Packs will be replaced with a TOTSSF Pack containing 11 TOTSSF Players from the specified League
Elite 3+ Elite TOTW Packs will be replaced with a TOTSSF Pack containing 3 TOTSSF Players from the specified League
Gold 2+ A minimum of 1 TOTSSF item from that week’s Friday release will be in any Player Pick packs earned
Silver 2/3 TOTSSF Player Pick pack rewards will be capped at 88 OVR

Once the current TOTW Moments moves out of packs on Wednesday 29 April at 10 a.m. PST, FIFA will place TOTW Moments on hold during Team of the Season So Far.

However, if the football schedule resumes widely enough (as we’re all desperate for it to), Team of the Week would return following TOTSSF effective Wednesday, 10 June.

Otherwise, Team of the Week Moments will continue effective Wednesday, 10 June.


FIFA 21 Rulebreakers Team 1 LIVE: card boosts, SBCs, how it works

EA SPORTS has begun officially unveiling this year’s Halloween promo event for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like we’ll actually be getting something a little out of the ordinary in FIFA 21… “Rulebreakers.” Here’s everything we know so far.

The last few years have seen Ultimate Scream rule the last weeks of October. The Halloween themed promo was trotted out in Ultimate Team for the last three years, but the special event’s ‘reign of terror’ seems to be coming to an end.

Instead, a new “Rulebreakers” promo is coming soon.  EA SPORTS teased the event on Twitter on Oct. 21, with only three letters ⁠— two Rs and an S ⁠— and a fragmented FUT card. Soon after, Dexerto data miner FutWatch confirmed the hidden word would eventually spell out ‘Rulebreakers.’

As has been the case for most promos since the start of FIFA 20, this one consists of two separate squads of players, the first of which was officially unveiled on Oct. 23.

FIFA 21 Rulebreakers Team 1

The full Team 1 for the Rulebreakers promo in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

The first set of Rulebreakers cards is full of impressive cards, including the likes of Harry Kane, Dries Mertens, Douglas Costa, and more. As explained below, these cards have been reworked in a way where some of their stats have transferred over to other categories.

  • Harry Kane
  • Aymerick Laporte
  • Douglas Costa
  • Dries Mertens
  • Radja Nainggolan
  • Lucas Ocampos
  • Marcos Llorente
  • Manuel Lazzari
  • Boubacar Kamara
  • Denzel Dumfries
  • Andre

FIFA 21 Rulebreakers: how does it work?

Essentially, the idea behind Rulebreakers is to take cards that have a concentration of stats in certain categories and move them around to boost another aspect of that player.

For example, in the players listed above, the likes of Harry Kane, who is known for supreme shooting but not a lot of pace, has seen some of those shooting stats shifted to boost his pace all the way up to 91, which is considerably higher than almost every card he’s ever had in FIFA history.

Similarly, Manchester City centerback Laporte now features a whopping 81 pace, a chunk of which was taken from his defending.
