EA SPORTS reveal TOTW Moments plan after FIFA 20 TOTSSF launch

Team of the Weeks Moments has proven to be a popular addition to FIFA 20 Ultimate Team but the launch of TOTSSF has seen it rotated out. Here’s when it could be back. 

As a substitute for no actual football being played, EA SPORTS introduced Team of the Week moments in the place of the usual Team of the Week. As a result, FIFA fans had a chance to get their hands on some classic TOTW cards that had received a nice little added boost.

Though, with the launch of Team of the Season So Far – EA’s replacement for the usual end-of-season Team of the Season promo – it looks as if Team of the Weeks Moments are also coming to end. However, there appears to be a catch on things.

TOTW Moments has given FIFA fans some high-rated cards.

Where is Team of the Week Moments 7 | TOTW 33?

In their content roadmap for Team of the Season So Far – or TOTSSF – the developers noted that there would be changes to the weekly moments cards – but you’d have had to look for it to see what they said.

EA noted at the very end of their roadmap that once the seventh TOTW Moments squad moves out of packs on Wednesday 29 April at 10 a.m. PST, FIFA will place TOTW Moments on hold during the Team of the Season So Far promo. 

This means that the Team of the Week will no longer be announced at the usual time of 3 pm on a Wednesday afternoon, before going into packs at 6 pm. Though, that could change if football makes it return throughout the world.

With that looking increasingly unlikely – seeing as the French Ligue 1 and Dutch Eredivisie have canceled the remainder of their seasons – Team of the Week Moments is probably not making a return to FIFA 20. Though, EA says it’s on hold until June 10 anyway. 

EA has announced that the usual TOTW cards you’d find in FUT Champs Weekend League rewards will be replaced by TOTSSF cards depending on what rank you end up in.

FIFA 21 players are never happy when the EA servers are down, and it appears that the latest offering of the popular football franchise is struggling with issues on December 3, with widespread reports from players unable to find games in Ultimate Team. 

With next-gen consoles finally jumping onboard the FIFA 21 hype train, the servers were expected to struggle. Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 players got access to the next-gen game on December 3, with all-new graphics and big performance boosts.

As always though, there are a few teething problems with the online services with so many players trying to hop onto the game at once, and it appears that on the same day, many were unable to gain access to FIFA 21’s online capabilities.

So, let’s take a look at the latest update on connectivity issues.

Are EA servers down for FIFA 21?

December 3, 2020

The FIFA 21 servers have been struggling with the increased load from next-gen consoles. While players have noted they were struggling to log in, the FIFA Direct Communication Twitter has reported a new issue with matchmaking.

“We are aware that players are currently unable to matchmake in FIFA 21 FUT, across all platforms. We are investigating and will provide an update when one is available,” they said.

It’s not just next-gen players who are affected, but players across all platforms, regardless of whether you’re on the older consoles, or even PC.

The outage has been going on since around 7:30pm ET, although its still spiking hours later, according to Down Detector.

The site confirms there are reported “issues” with EA’s servers, as expected, meaning players are unable to play FIFA Ultimate Team and their Division Rivals matches.

EA has yet to comment on how long this outage will last, but hopefully, it wraps up before too long. We’ll keep you posted with updates to this article in due course.
