There’s a brand new FIFA 20 Squad Building challenge in Ultimate Team and it’s a Piece of Cake. Well, not super easy, but that is the name of it.

Deadline, requirements and reward

Finishing this one before it disappears is going to be the key, really, as it’s only sticking around until April 15. A full list of requirements can be found below for this non-repeatable challenge, with a 30k pack to pick up in the rewards.

  • Nationalities: Min 10
  • Clubs: Min 6
  • Same Nation Count: Min 2
  • Rare: Min 5
  • Squad Rating: Min 79
  • Team Chemistry: Min 95
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11
  • Reward: Rare Electrum Players Pack

Cost and solutions

If you would like to grab the reward listed above, as seen in the requirements, there are quite a few tricky hurdles to jump over in order to complete this SBC. According to the FUTBIN database, though, it will cost as little as 12,000 coins – which is an average across all platforms. Not bad, considering.

Our recommended solution can be found below.

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.
