EA Sports have dropped Update 12 for FIFA 22, fixing FUT matchmaking bugs and cross-play invite issues in the June 2 patch.

The football season may be over, but EA Sports continue to update FIFA 22 on a regular basis. While this patch doesn’t make any major gameplay changes, it should help address some issues that have been plaguing the game.

FIFA 22’s 12th title update focuses on fixing problems rather than changing the game up, and we’ve got the full details below.

FIFA 22 Update 12 fixes wait times

If you’ve been playing Public Co-Op matches in Ultimate Team, you may have noticed incredibly long wait times, even when a match has been found.

According to EA Sports, this was due to an issue with the mode’s voice communication system. To help speed up matches, the devs have disabled the system, with hopes that this will fix the problem.

Unfortunately, there’s no word on if, or when, voice communication will return.

On top of that, EA also fixed a loophole that allowed players to send cross-play invites to people who had blocked them. There are also some updated kits and 2D portraits included in this update.

FIFA 23 Bundesliga ratings: Every team’s best players predictions

The Bundesliga is expected to supply some of the best players in FIFA 23, so we’ve predicted who will have the highest rating for each club.

FIFA 23 Bundesliga Ratings

The Bundesliga will be the battleground for some of FIFA 23’s highest-rated stars, with players from Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund set to impact Ultimate Team. Here are our predictions for the top Bundesliga ratings in FIFA 23, as well as every team’s best players.

Each new FIFA title brings new Ultimate Team ratings based on player performances in the previous season, and FIFA 23 will be no different. To discern which players are deserving of an upgrade or downgrade, EA will analyze the 2021/2022 season.

In Germany, the 2021/2022 Bundesliga season saw Bayern Munich cruise to a tenth straight title. The battle for Champions League spots was a fierce one as Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen, and RB Leipzig should all expect player rating upgrades in FIFA 23.

But who will be the best players in the Bundesliga? We’ve put together our predictions for the top 10 highest-rated Bundesliga players in FIFA 23, and highlighted the best players from each club.

Thomas MullerBayern Munich-186
Kingsley ComanBayern Munich86
Filip KosticEintracht Frankfurt +286
Koen CasteelsWolfsburg-185
Christopher NkunkuRB Leipzig+485

It’s been quiet summer so far when it comes to Bundesliga transfers. However, things in Germany can still heat up with the summer transfer window open until September 1.

All eyes will be on Bayern Munich as they look to keep a hold of disgruntled star striker Robert Lewandowski. At this moment, the striker is attempting to force a move to Barcelona, but if he remains, there’s no doubt he’ll be the highest-rated FIFA 23 player in the Bundesliga.

Bayern dominates the predicted list of top ten Bundesliga players in FIFA 23. The illustrious German club won ten Bundesliga titles in a row and they’re the clear powerhouse option to pick up an eleventh straight title in 2023.

Elsewhere, Filip Kostic enjoyed a fantastic season in which Frankfurt secured a Europa League trophy. FIFA 22 delivered a whopping ten separate special Christopher Nkunku cards and the midfielder’s performances should see him rise to 84 or 85 in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 Bundesliga rating predictions: Every team’s best players

The Bundesliga is dominated by Bayern Munich players when it comes to landing a player in the top 10. Nonetheless, it’s still fascinating to see how EA upgrades and downgrades players from across Germany with each new title. In the 2021/2022 season, every team had both surprises and disappointments that should be reflected when FIFA 23 is released.

With this in mind, we’ve made our predictions for every Bundesliga club’s top three players in FIFA 23:

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch: OTW promo explained & predictions

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch is set to be the first major promo of FUT 23, so here’s everything we know about the event so far.

Published

on

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch is expected to be the first major promo of this season’s Ultimate Team, celebrating the most exciting moves from the summer transfer window. Here’s how FIFA 23 OTW will work, along with the players likely to feature.

Ones to Watch is always one of the most interesting and exciting promos in any FIFA, mainly because it tends to be the very first major event of the year. FIFA 23 will be no exception, as EA look to shine the spotlight on the biggest transfers of the summer.

FIFA 22 OTW was arguably the biggest ever, as both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo switched clubs in a crazy end to the transfer window. While FIFA 23 OTW is unlikely to have as many groundbreaking signings to choose from, some of the game’s highest-rated players have been on the move.

Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 23 Ones to Watch, from how the cards will work to the players we expect to see.

Is there a FIFA 23 Ones to Watch start date?

EA are yet to confirm when FIFA 23 Ones to Watch will kick off, but we can look at previous years to gain a pretty good idea.

Last year, OTW got underway on October 1, the same day as FIFA 22’s worldwide release. With this in mind, we’d expect FIFA 23 OTW to begin on Friday, September 30, 2022.

This is the expected FIFA 23 release date based on various leaks and the usual schedule, but we’ll add new information to this section once it’s available.

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch explained

Ones to Watch Team 2 FIFA 22

FIFA 23 OTW will award special live cards to players who have recently moved to a new club. These dynamic items will go up in rating depending on how well the player performs for their club in real life.

Each time a OTW star is handed a TOTW after a top display in their domestic league, the card will increase in rating and stats to match the most recent one.

For example, in FIFA 22, Dayot Upamecano started out at an 82-rated card after his move to Bayern Munich. But, by the end of the year, he was 87-rated and one of the best center-backs that the Bundesliga had to offer.

They will also receive an extra +1 boost for winning a certain number of matches after the promo begins. Last year, the threshold was five wins out of 10 games after October 2.

We’ll update this section with more specific information once EA officially announces the promo.

The summer transfer window is far from closed, but we’ve already seen some major signings that are a shoo-in to be a FIFA 23 OTW. On top of that, there are plenty of deals that are on the verge of going through that will surely make the cut.

Here are our predictions for FIFA 23 Ones to Watch so far:

Player NameTransferTransfer Confirmed?Predicted Rating
Robert LewandowskiBayern Munich to BarcelonaNo92
Erling HaalandBorussia Dortmund to Manchester CityYes90
Sadio ManeLiverpool to Bayern MunichYes90

How to complete FIFA 22 Gareth Bale End of an Era SBC

An End of an Era Gareth Bale SBC is live in FIFA 22 to celebrate the Welshman’s career with Real Madrid. Here’s everything you need to know.

Published

on

FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale

An End of an Era Gareth Bale has dropped in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team to mark the end of the Welshman’s decorated Real Madrid career. Here’s how to complete the SBC and unlock this unbelievable new card.

After nine years, five Champions League winners medals, and plenty of controversies, Gareth Bale’s time with Real Madrid has come to an end. The Welsh star is moving on to Los Angeles FC, but he leaves the Galacticos having won every major trophy on offer to him.

To celebrate his Madrid career, EA have added an End of an Era Bale to FIFA 22 Ultimate Team during the Shapeshifters promo, unlockable through an SBC.

It’s one of the most eye-watering cards we’ve had in FIFA 22 to date, so here’s how to complete End of an Era Gareth Bale as well as cheap solutions for each section.

FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale stats

FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale stats

Even with so many special promo cards on the market, End of an Era Bale stands out as one of the best players in FIFA 22. Both his Pace and Finishing are virtually maxed out, so he’ll strike fear into defenders and goalkeepers alike.

97 Dribbling means he can glide past full-backs with ease, but his impressive passing gives him the ability to play in an attacking midfield role if you want him more involved in the action. Throw in 99 Jumping and Heading Accuracy, and it’s hard to find a single drawback.

FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale requirements & solutions

There are only four squads to submit for End of an Era Bale, but very high requirements mean it will set you back around 750,000 coins to complete the overall SBC, based on data from FUTBIN.

It’s definitely on the pricey side, but that’s probably to be expected for a 98-rated player from one of the game’s most popular leagues.

If you’re thinking of adding Bale to your squad, we’ve laid out all of the SBC requirements and cheapest solutions below:

Real Madrid requirements

  • # of Real Madrid players: Min 1
  • # of TOTW or TOTS players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Reward: Premium Mixed Players Pack

FIFA 22 End of an Era Bale 89 Rated Squad

Players have until Wednesday, August 3 to complete all four SBCs for End of an Era Bale, so there’s plenty of time to save up those Division Rivals and FUT Champions rewards. There are also plenty of packs up for grabs in Summer Stars to help ease the pain.

This is an SBC that certainly won’t be for everyone, as the price is extremely high and Bale’s Welsh nation link makes him tough to fit into teams that don’t have plenty of LaLiga players already.

However, if you can fit him into your squad, there’s no doubt End of an Era Bale has the stats to be one of the best players in all of FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.
