FIFA 22 streamer Castro banned for Ultimate Team “coin distribution” live on Twitch

Popular FIFA YouTuber and streamer Castro was recently permabanned from the FIFA 22 Ultimate Team transfer market.

Castro is one of the FIFA community’s biggest and most popular streamers, and he was banned live on Twitch from using FIFA 22 Ultimate Team’s transfer market.

Ultimate Team is pretty much the lifeblood of EA’s FIFA franchise as it rakes in billions each year. It’s helped by the fact the game’s most popular content creators advertise the game so well and pump lots of money into FIFA Points – the game’s microtransaction currency.

Edwin Castro AKA Castro_1021 has been one of the game’s main streamers and content creators for years now. So it was a huge shock to many when he was unceremoniously booted from FIFA 22 Ultimate Team’s transfer market – permanently.

During a typical live stream on Twitch, Castro was having an issue with EA’s servers as he was searching for players in Ultimate Team.

Suddenly, a prompt appeared on his screen saying “Account At Risk” and EA had apparently noticed that his account was “recently involved in FUT Coin distribution” and subsequently banned him from the game mode’s transfer market.

Ultimate Team’s transfer market is a crucial aspect of the game, and, especially for a high-profile streamer like Castro, will have a damaging effect on his content creation.

“The day before Team of the Group Stage, and I just dropped like 300K FIFA Points on Black Friday, and you think I’m coin distributing?!” Castro angrily shouted for his viewers.

This imposed ban will prevent the player from buying or selling any players on the FIFA Ultimate Team market. Meaning he can’t sell any exciting, valuable pack pulls or buy the game’s latest and greatest cards.

Castro doesn’t believe he’s done anything wrong, and it’s likely he will appeal against the decision. The streamer is one of the most well-liked in FIFA, and it’s likely that his ban will be overturned.

How to vote for 12th man in FIFA 22 TOTY

Following the reveal of the TOTY squad, Ultimate Team players will get a chance to vote for the TOTY 12th man in FIFA 22.

TOTY 12th Man FIFA 22

Voting for the TOTY main squad is now closed but Ultimate Team players will soon be able to cast their vote for the illustrious 12th Man in FIFA 22.

After the TOTY nominees were revealed by EA Sports, FUT players could vote for the main squad of eleven from January 10 to January 18. With voting now closed, players are already speculating at which of the best footballers of 2021 made the cut.

Leaks have already hinted at some of the world’s best being involved but there will no doubt be a ton of debate on who unjustly missed the cut. Luckily, players will get a chance to vote a 12th player into the TOTY squad, known as the 12th Man.

When is the TOTY 12th Man release date?

12th Man voting gives players a great opportunity to vote one last player into the TOTY promo. After the announcement of the initial 11 man squad that is expected to occur on January 21, EA will put forth three more nominees that just missed the cut.

Once the three footballers are revealed, FUT players will get their chance to cast a vote for the members of this special ballot. This will likely occur after the full TOTY squad is revealed.

Contrary to the TOTY main squad vote that took place on EA’s FIFA webpage, the 12th Man voting takes place in-game or on the companion app.

Follow these steps, once the nominees have been selected:

  1. Log into FIFA 22.
  2. Start Ultimate Team up on your platform of choice or via the Companion app.
  3. Choose the nominee you wish to cast a vote for in the proceeding screen.
  4. Cast your vote.
  5. Collect your loan player as a reward.

Players will receive a loan card matching the nominee they selected as a reward.

With leaks indicating that Ronaldo and Salah both missed out on the TOTY, competition will be incredibly fierce for the 12th and final spot.

TOTY FIFA 22 Ultimate Team nominees, voting, leaks, & SBCs

As the year comes to a close, FUT players can’t wait to get their hands on the Team of the Year promo. Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 22 TOTY.

Published

FIFA 22 TOTY

Ultimate Team’s TOTY promo is one of the most anticipated events of FIFA 22. The top footballers of the past year are honored as players vote for their favorite TOTY nominees in FIFA 22.

Team of the Year highlights the best Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders, and Attackers in an eleven-man squad. However, players can also expect 5-6 additional cards through the 12th Man, Objectives, and SBCs.

The competition was stiff this year as 2021’s top performers stepped up their game. Let’s take a look at some of the players expected to be involved in the TOTY promo as well as how to vote for TOTY nominees.

When is the FIFA 22 TOTY release date?

FIFA 21 toty

Players should expect this highly-anticipated promo a few weeks into the new year. In FIFA 21, this particular promo was available as of January 22, 2021. What with EA’s tendency to release promos on Friday, January 21, 2022, is a great date to circle on your calendar given voting closed on January 18, 2022.

As is the norm with most promos players can expect to get their hands on these coveted cards at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT / 7 PM CET.

What is Team of the Year?

TOTY logo FIFA 22

TOTY is a compilation of footballers who performed the best throughout 2021. Unlike Team of the Season which uses a club season as the criteria, this promo uses the calendar year to judge the top performers. 

EA Sports typically chooses a squad of eleven players that fit into a 4-3-3 formation. Although, there is some flexibility when it comes to the way players fit into the formation. All players can expect a stat boost that will take their overall into the 90s.

Interestingly enough, this promo is decided by FUT players through a vote. You’ll get to decide which superstars are included in this year’s iteration of the Team of the Year. We’ll keep you posted when voting opens to FIFA 22 players.

FIFA 22 TOTY Nominees

The criteria for selecting the TOTY is heavily influenced by trophy-winners. Most of the players on this list will have won a competition by the time 2021 comes to a close.

For example, Jorginho isn’t known as the flashiest footballer but his contribution to winning the Champions League with Chelsea and Euro 2020 makes him an undeniable representative. 

That’s not to say that players who haven’t won a trophy can’t end up on the TOTY. Someone like Erling Haaland whose individual performances have earned him the praise of football fans around the world has a great chance at making the list.

Here are the Attacker, Midfielder, and Defender nominees for the FIFA 22 TOTY.

The Attackers nominees are led by Robert Lewandowksi who many believed should have won the 2021 Ballon d’Or thanks to his brilliant performances in the Champions League and Bundesliga.

After winning Copa America last summer, Lionel Messi should certainly be involved in the squad.

As previously mentioned, Jorginho’s Euro and Champions League winning year should see him make the TOTY. His Chelsea teammate N’Golo Kanté also has a great shot at making the cut this year.

Expect to see the trend of Premier League players making the TOTY continue when it comes to defenders. After all, Chelsea did win the Champions League and Ruben Dias has looked incredible throughout 2021.

Gianluigi Donnarumma and Edouard Mendy should be the favorites to receive the Goalkeeper spot. However, players must remember that the TOTY is decided by fan vote which means anything can happen when it comes to determining the squad.

TOTY Vote

FIFA leakers are restless when it comes to revealing upcoming promos and exciting cards prior to their release date. Consider this a warning for any FUT players who want the TOTY squad to remain a surprise until the official release date.

This squad of eleven players represents the top performers of 2021. The entire squad has been confirmed by renowned FIFA leakers DonkTrading and FutSheriff. Naturally, there’s going to be a ton of debate surrounding these inclusions as players hope to pack a TOTY card in the coming weeks.

When EA Sports announces additional information concerning the official release date we’ll update this section so be sure to check back in!

How to complete Kaka Prime Icon SBC FIFA 22

Kaka is one of the best midfielders in FIFA 22, and the Brazilian CAM has received a brand new Prime Icon SBC.

Ultimate Team players are receiving frequent opportunities to snap up Icon players as of late and EA has just released a Prime Icon Kaka SBC to add to the ongoing list of legendary footballers up for grabs.

Ultimate Team players will have wonderful opportunities to bolster their squads during the lead-up to the highly anticipated TOTY promo. The latest legend to receive the Icon SBC treatment is none other than Brazilian midfield maestro Kaka.

As is the case with most Icon SBCs, it will certainly set players back costing nearly 1 million coins but Kaka will fit into almost any squad as most Icons do.

FUT players can expect to submit a whopping nine squads in order to claim this Prime Icon Kaka.

FIFA 22 Prime Icon Kaka stats

Prime Icon Kaka stats FUT

Kaka is a superb ball-distributing midfielder with the ability to score goals himself. His 87 crossing and 90 short passing will give you plenty of options when Kaka is on the ball. Kaka is the king of creating space on the pitch thanks to 5* skills and dribbling stats that will have you gliding past defenders.

Using Kaka as a CAM is truly his best position due to his poor physicality and defending stats. Players will have a greater influence over the match if he’s higher up the pitch and his 91 pace is ideal for a midfielder.
