FIFA 20 Update 19 makes long awaited change to FUT – Patch Notes

EA SPORTS have revealed patch notes for FIFA 20 title update 19 and, finally, a big change to Ultimate Team has been included that should make searching for players a lot easier. 

Previous patch notes have been pretty disappointing for players, not offering a whole lot in terms of official details, but then springing up some surprises like ICONs being available to play with on Career Mode and Kick Off. 

This time, however, it doesn’t look like the major news has evaded the official details released by the developers, with a new “Special Quality Filter” finally being added after years of FUT player requests.

How to use FIFA 20 Special Quality Filter

FIFA 20's FUT transfer market
Soon, players will be able to use a new filter to find specific player rarities. For example, Summer Heat cards.

The new FIFA 20 Search Quality Filter does exactly what it says on the tin, and allows FUT Club Owners to specifically search for exact player item rarity. This will be included in the transfer market and in our clubs as well.

The slightly bad news, at the time of writing, is that it won’t be added to the game immediately. Instead, it’s set to be activated through a server release at a later date or time.  As soon as we know more about that, we’ll let you know.

For more information on that, and other changes/issues, check out the official patch notes below. These were posted to EA’s FIFA Forum on June 30.

Ultimate Team

Made the following change:

  • Added the Special Quality Filter, a new feature that will be activated through a server release at a later date and time, and this activation will be announced on the @EAFIFADIRECT Twitter account.
  • The Special Quality Filter enables players to search for the exact Player Item rarity.
  • The Special Quality Filter is available in the Transfer Market, and in the Club tab of the Squad screen.
  • The Special Quality Filter can be accessed by hovering over the Quality tile when performing a search, followed by pressing your controller’s confirmation button.
    1. Known Issue: The Special Quality Filter incorrectly displays an option to search for Silver FUT Champions Items, an Item rarity that is not present in-game.

Addressed the following issue:

  • When selecting one of the first 7 Player Items in the search results, the Compare Price function on the Transfer Market was only displaying 1 page of Player Items.

FIFA 21’s Team of the Group Stage is a week-long promo that fans look forward to every year. Here are all the details you need to know about this year’s TOTGS.

The UEFA Champions League is underway and that means EA will be introducing the Team of the Group Stage promo to FIFA 21 ultimate team.

The event will introduce a set of new cards for players performing well in the competition’s group stage. As it progresses, these cards will upgrade based on how well their team is doing.

Without further ado, let’s check out everything you need to know about FIFA 21’s TOTGS.

EA Sports
FIFA 21’s next-gen release arrives on December 4.

When does FIFA 21 TOTGS start?

This year’s Team of the Group Stage will run for a week from December 4 – 6pm (GMT). 

The start date was confirmed by EA SPORTS FIFA on Twitter and it’s fair to say that fans are excited.

FIFA 21 TOTGS predictions

It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly which players will be receiving a TOTGS card, but we can make predictions based on players’ performance from the group stage so far.

In terms of standout performances, Erling Haaland, Marcus Rashford, and Alassane Plea are all in the top 5 goals scorers at the competition. On top of that, it’s important not to forget how impressive Thiago Silva and Ruben Dias have been defensively in the games they’ve played.

That’s just to mention a few so here’s our comprehensive list of predictions for TOTGS:

  • LW: Diogo Jota – Liverpool
  • LW: Marcus Rashford – Manchester United
  • CB: Thiago Silva – Chelsea
  • CF: Alassane Plea – Borussia Monchengladbach
  • CF: Erling Haaland – Bor. Dortmund
  • RW: Ferran Torres – Manchester City
  • CDM: Joshua Kimmich – Bayern Munich
  • CB: Ruben Dias – Manchester City
  • CF: Alvaro Morata – Juventus FC
  • CAM: Bruno Fernandes – Manchester United
  • GK: Edouard Mendy – Chelsea
  • CAM: Kevin De Bruyne -Manchester City
  • RW: Lional Messi – FC Barcelona
  • LW: Kingsley Coman – Bayern Munich
  • LW: Kylian Mbappe – Paris SG

That rounds off our predictions for potential TOTGS candidates. Lucky for us there isn’t too long to wait before EA releases the official team.

We’ll update this page as soon as the TOTGS squad is released tomorrow.
