Card Types Explained

2018.06.11

In this year’s installment of FIFA 17 Ultimate Team, EA Sports have brought in several new card types on top of the old ones that have been in previous FIFA’s. In this article, we are going to go over what the, new types of cards are as well as the old ones.

One of the several new cards this year in ultimate team are Ones to Watch (OTW). OTW cards were given to players who transferred to a new club over the Summer 2016 transfer window. OTW cards act as a player's normal card until they get an inform card in TOTW. When that player gets a TOTW card, their OTW card is automatically upgraded to the same stats as their inform card. OTW cards are useful to buy because if that player gets an inform and you already have the OTW card, you don’t need to buy their inform card.

Special cards that have been in Ultimate Team since FIFA 12 are Team of the Year cards (TOTY). Team of the Year cards are typically dark blue and they are awarded to the 11 players who made FIFA’s Team of the Year for that particular year. TOTY cards have the highest stat boosts out of any card types which makes them very popular. TOTY cards are very expensive since they are typically awarded to some of the best players in the game, and the significant upgrades make them some of the best players your Ultimate Team.

The next special card that is brand new this year are Squad Building Challenges (SBC) cards. SBC cards are given to players to a variety of reasons ranging from two rival teams facing off on the weekend, to players who won the player of the month award for the English Premier League. To obtain these special cards, you must build a squad, or squads, that meet the requirements set by EA. Once you complete the requirements you are rewarded the SBC card.

For the month of November, EA released movember cards to raise awareness for men's health. The players who were awarded movember cards received a small upgrade. All in all, these are the special cards that are currently in Ultimate team, but you can expect EA to release new special cards in the future.
