EA Sports have released Team 1 of FIFA 20 Ultimate Team’s (FUT) newest promo ShapeShifters, although they’re making an adjustment to how the cards look shortly after launch.

ShapeShifters was one of the more highly-anticipated promos in FIFA 20, featuring cards that have had their positions changed and stats slightly boosted.

The first set of ShapeShifters was released on February 21, 15 of them available in packs, one via SBC, and one more via Objectives.

Team 1 is headlined by several cards rated 90 or over, including a 96 CF Messi, 91 CAM Marcelo, 91 CDM David Luiz, 90 RW Ben Yedder, and 90 LW Mertens.

The beauty of this promo is that it gives a chance for certain players to be used in ways that they otherwise would not be able to – all of the cards’ new positions are ones that could not be achieved with regular position-change cards.

  • Lionel Messi (96) RW > CF
  • Marcelo (91) LB > CAM
  • David Luiz (91) CB > CDM
  • Wissam Ben Yedder (90) ST > RW
  • Dries Mertens (90) CF > LW
  • Riyad Mahrez (89) RW > CAM
  • Lucas Moura (87) CF > RW
  • Geoffrey Kondogbia (87) CDM > CB
  • Idrisa Gueye (87) CDM > CB
  • Youcef Atal (86) RB > ST
  • Kevin Mbabu (86) RB > CDM
  • Hans Hateboer (86) RM > RB
  • Renato Sanches (86) CM > LB
  • Forian KJain (85) LM > CAM
  • Nahitan Nandez (84) CM > CB

The other two ShapeShifter cards released as part of Team 1 are Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcos Acuna, both of which are available as Untradeables.

Mkhitaryan’s card has gone from an 81-rated RM to 88-rated CAM, while Acuna has transformed from an 81-rated LW to 87-rated CM.

Mkhitaryan can be obtained via a special SBC that’s live until February 26 while Acuna can be unlocked by completed the specific requirements in the Objectives menu.

Changes already coming to ShapeShifters cards

Shortly after this promo launched, EA were met with some negative feedback and criticisms regarded the aesthetics of the card, more specifically how the pink-red color of the text clashed with the rest of the design.

In response, EA announced that they would be making “changes in the text color to make ShapeShifters items easier to read.” These changes are set to be implemented later in the day on February 21.

While they didn’t announce what the changes would be, it’s more than likely that they’ll be changing the text color to white, considering that their announcement came in response to a tweet making that suggestion.

All indications are that ShapeShifters Team 1 will be available for five days, so until February 26, at which point the second set of position-change cards will be released.

Team 2 could include some additional highly-anticipated cards, such as an LW Cristiano Ronaldo, ST Raheem Sterling, ST Sergio Ramos, and more.

FIFA has released a new Player of the Month SBC for none other than Atletico Madrid Forward João Félix, and we’ve got all the information you need to unlock it quickly and cheaply.

Félix has been on an absolute tear through the Spanish top league and the Champion’s League in 2020, widely considered by pundits and fans to be the best player on Atletico Madrid. Based on that, it’s no surprise he locked up the POTM vote for November.

Below, we’ll take a look at the stats, along with what exactly you need to do to knock out, and the total price this card will set you back.

João Félix POTM SBC stats

Félix’s POTM stats are a nice upgrade from his regular card, boasting 89s in both Dribbling and Shooting, making him a dangerous threat inside the box.

Pace and Passing also make it into the 80s as well, all adding up to a very nicely balanced forward card, perfect for Atletico Madrid fans, that can afford it, at least.
