Changes coming to FUT Draft rewards in FIFA 22, says leaker

Fans have been calling for changes to FUT Draft rewards for some time, and a new leak suggests that EA may have listened for FIFA 22.

FUT Draft has been a staple of Ultimate Team for many years now. According to a new leak, the FIFA 22 FUt Draft rewards will see a revamp that fans have been calling for in the franchise.

FIFA 22 is nearly upon us, and fans are itching to dive into another season of swapping and trading in Ultimate Team. With the additions of FUT Heroes and some fresh ICON cards, there’s more to grind for than ever before.

Opening packs is fundamental to Ultimate Team, and FUT Draft was added as a way to earn pack rewards quickly. However, the underwhelming rewards earned in Draft have caused the mode to be largely abandoned by the community.

However, according to a new leak, FUT Draft in FIFA 22 could see some changes that have been long-awaited by the community.

FUT Draft is an Ultimate Mode where fans spend 15,000 coins to build a team from scratch using a series of random player picks. They then use this team to play in up to four matches, with rewards increasing in value the more games you win without losing.

Unfortuntlaey, the random nature of opening FUT packs means that the items earned aren’t always valuable enough to make playing the mode productive.

Players will find that they have recuperated their 15,000 entry fee – even if they win the Draft by beating four rival teams in a row.

According to known Ultimate Team leaker FutSpy, EA is looking to solve this issue by adding new rewards to be won. The leaker uncovered code hinting that Draft rewards will now feature some cards of a guaranteed rating, some of 82 or higher and some of 83 or higher.

This is a way of ensuring that those who make it further are always rewarded for their efforts and that packs have much more chance of being worth 15,000 coins or more.

The news is likely to please long-time fans, who have been calling for more incentive to play the more for many years.

EA has yet to confirm if the leak is true, so stay tuned on Charlie INTEL for future updates.

It’s time for another FIFA 22 Team of the Week. In FIFA 22 TOTW 6, there are some huge names for people to add to their teams, and the featured player is a former FUT favorite.

Ultimate Team remains the most popular mode in the FIFA series. One of the many reasons for this is incorporating real-world football into its addictive gameplay loop through special cards, such as Icons or the new FUT Heroes.

One of the mode’s oldest special items is the Team of the Week, which offers players a weekly batch of new upgraded cards to help build out their squads. We’ve got everything you need to know about FUT TOTW right here.

We’ll be updating this hub with the latest FIFA 22 TOTW, so be sure to check back here every week.

Team of the Week 6 has reportedly been leaked thanks to Weaver – FUT, and we know the cards that are expected to be revealed on Wednesday.

The FIFA 22 TOTW 6 is here, and it’s full of big names from across the world.

Check out the full, rumored squad for the FIFA 22 TOTW 6 here:

What are TOTW cards in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team?

Team of the Week items are special cards that boost stats based on that player’s performance in the previous week of real-world games. Any player awarded an in-form will see both their ratings and in-game stats get a permanent increase.

Every week, EA unveils a 23-man squad of the stars who had the best games in the previous domestic or international fixtures round. They could be awarded for a last-minute winner in a big game or a heroic performance from a goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet.

Each TOTW is available in packs for an entire week until it is replaced by the next squad on the following Wednesday. Player’s can not receive an in-form two weeks in a row.

While the in-form card is in packs, it replaces the base version of that player. The normal card will return to packs when that TOTW is over.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Featured TOTW

In FIFA 22, EA has addressed fans’ complaints that TOTW items are often quickly rendered useless by the other promotional cards added to the game throughout the year.

Every week, one player will receive a special Featured TOTW card. These players will receive a larger boost than the rest of the squad in an attempt to make them more desirable to those building their teams.

To qualify for this additional stat-boost, the player must have a base card that is under 80-rated and not have any other performance-based card in packs – such as a Ones to Watch.

When is the TOTW released?

Historically, EA announces the latest TOTW every Wednesday so that any Monday night games can be considered.

No specific time has been set for when the team will be announced. However, so far, they have tended to surface at around 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 4 PM BST.

We’ll update this post with an exact schedule as and when it is available.

FIFA 22 players slam “dead” Ultimate Team content

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is supported with a stream of fresh content, however fans are angry with quality of the SBCs and objective this year.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team has been live for just over a month, and a handful of promotions like Ones to Watches and Road to the Knockouts have already been and gone. This hasn’t stopped FUT fans from slamming the daily content EA have rolled out.

While the draw of building an Ultimate Team is what gets players through the door, it’s the constant stream of content and promotions that keeps them around.

So far in FIFA 22, we’ve been treated to the Ones to Watch and Road to the Knockouts promos, with plenty more on the horizon.

However, fans have slammed the lack of daily Squad Building Challenges and objectives so far in FIFA 22, calling this year’s content “dead.”

Despite the regular big promotions, FIFA fans have been disappointed with how little daily content has been released by EA so far in FUT 22, saying there is little to work towards.

Reddit user BavarianAngel posted claiming “the content is so dead,” after weeks of SBCs with very slender rewards and few meaningful objectives.

Other fans responded in agreement, saying there is “nothing to play for” during the week outside of the usual seven Divison Rivals wins.

Many also called out the SBC rewards, which have tended to be extremely low-value packs or 75+ players, which are highly unlikely to give out top-rated superstars.

While there have been some player SBCs, like the RTTK Nabil Fekir and Record-breaker Inaki Williams, fans feel that only releasing them occasionally is making the game “boring.”

“I just wish there was something to play for that gives me the chance at gaining some coins apart from 30k every week and Weekend League if you’re even able to qualify,” pleaded one fan.

The biggest problem FUT players outlined with the “subpar” content so far this year is how difficult it is becoming to make coins.

“This version of FIFA is the best I have played and they managed to ruin it somehow with s**t content,” said another.

They argued that nerfing the quality of SBCs and objectives means that it’s increasingly harder to earn good players without resorting to buying FIFA points.

After all the praise that FIFA 22’s gameplay has recieved, fans are clearly disappointed that EA isn’t giving them much incentive to keep coming back.

It remains to be seen if the developers will work to improve the daily content and allow the game to thrive over the course of the entire year.
